Best One Piece Story Arcs

Not entire sagas, but the story arcs inside each of them.
The Top Ten
1 Enies Lobby Arc

This is the arc that made me believe Luffy could become the pirate king.

The arc is Oda’s masterpiece with all the amazing setup, plot twists and epic fights truly make it the greatest arc in all of One Piece. We had all the stuff with Usopp, Robin, Franky and of course CP9.

2 Marineford Arc

In my opinion it was the most emotional and really showed how far Luffy was from the top and how much he still had to go...
It was suspenseful and magically have all the characters "revived" with the power of plot armour.
There was a major battle, basically a war, and heck, even a prison breakout!
This arc really gave off a spring to set up for the time skip, so it didn't feel too unnatural~ (^-^)

Full of emotion, Ace and Whitebeard's death are the most important part of the arc

Summit wars were the most action I've seen in any anime ever.

It Had A Huge battle.

3 Water 7 Arc

It was just an exciting and captivating arc

It is such a unique arc.

4 Alabasta Arc

This is one of my favorites. Every single character had their big emotional moments. The fight scenes were both epic and emotional.

The first time that every member of the crew gets their own fight and the first time the big bad is actually a challenge for Luffy.

5 Skypia Arc

This arc does drag in places but eneru is an incredible villain, abusing fear of god to terrify the skypieans into doing what he wants and with luffy being perfect to fight him allowing him to be overpowered without needing to come up with a reason for luffy to still win

Best story of all arcs. I don't know how long it takes to think about such a good backstory to an Island in the clouds

Best arc, with the best plots and not to forget a God

One of my least favorites

6 Whole Cake Island Arc

Big Mom, Katakuri, the Vinsmoke, tsundere Pudding, Sanji's backstory, Luffy vs Sanji, epic battles... this arc got it all. Also one of the most emotional arcs so far.

Anything better than Skypedia That Arc Sucked So much the show lost some of its fanbase.

I love this arc so far

Best arc post timeskip so far

7 Arlong Park Arc

This one was very interesting. And the fight between the Straw Hats and the merman was epic! It was a difficult fight, but in the end they won and Coco village, along with Nami, were set free.

It didn't have anything special, yet people overhyping it

Nah really doesn't top ten. Many arcs bellow were much better.

Damn this arc shouldn't be this high. Overrated.

8 Long Ring Long Land Arc

The Idea of a sport like the davy back fight was very creative and entertaining, plus the arc was the perfect length.

I voted enies lobby but the only reason I like this arc is because of foxy's stupid laugh. lol!

9 Jaya Arc
10 Sabaody Archipelago Arc

I just loved the fact thaf luffy was brave enough to punch a celestial Dragon

The Contenders
11 Loguetown Arc

With all the lore and fore shadowing it sets the entire journey up to be amazing and it was just well done

12 Baratie Arc

One of the best backstories, and an amazing fight! Encapsulates all the best parts of One Piece! 😁

13 Post-Enies Lobby (Thousand Sunny Construction) Arc
14 Zou

Oh yeah! People tend to forget about it because it's so short but it was really cool.

15 Little Garden Arc
16 Dressrosa

This arc so was long and sleep-inducing with tons of moments I couldn't care less about, such as the coliseum fights, Kyros and Rebecca and the tontatas or whatever their name was. Only good part was Doflamingo and Corazon.

I don't usually like long arcs in anything but this one worked

This should be top 3

Doffy. Gear fourth. Enough said

17 Thriller Bark

Best thriller, unique characters, badass moments of crew fighting together, and Zoro's "nothing happened" moment!

Classic. Best Zoro fight so far, the whole crew came together. And the zombies are hilarious.

Unique characters, Setting and fights. - and Moria's laughing was the best.

Very underrated

18 Ocean's Dream Arc
19 Impel Down

Magellan was epic and it was nice to see the return of some of the Baroque Works agents.

20 Syrup Village Arc
21 Drum Island Arc
22 Amazon Lily arc
23 Romance Dawn Arc
24 Wano Arc
25 Punk Hazard Arc

The fight between Luffy and Caesar Clown was pretty cool.
