Best One Piece Story Arcs

Not entire sagas, but the story arcs inside each of them.

The Top Ten Best One Piece Story Arcs

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

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

Well I really enjoyed this arc it was full of good action and it's the mid way point of of the series before the time skip it just is amazing seeing him fight his way towards his brother just too see him die in front of him a real tear jerker

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

4 Alabasta Arc

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

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

6 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!

7 Jaya Arc
8 Sabaody Archipelago Arc

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

9 Arlong Park Arc

This is purely because Nami's backstory is the most powerful one and the clever reveals at the end were worth it

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

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

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.

10 Whole Cake Island Arc

I love this arc so far

Best arc post timeskip so far

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.

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 Dressrosa

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

This should be top 3

Doffy. Gear fourth. Enough said

Best ever

13 Thriller Bark

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

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

Thriller park was just too unique and amazing, the setting was the best, the characters, specially perona, the zombies and how luffy reacts with them, Brooks backstory was so emotionaland sad,the ending of the arc where they celebrate and they sing binks sake is amazing and also emotional, and zoro taking Luffy's pain was epic, abusalum wanting to marry NamI was so much funny, the best of all was the setting and Brook's story

14 Little Garden Arc
15 Ocean's Dream Arc
16 Impel Down

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

17 Post-Enies Lobby (Thousand Sunny Construction) Arc
18 Drum Island Arc
19 Baratie Arc

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