Strongest One Piece Characters


The Top Ten

1 Shanks Shanks

Overall. Haki user is more powerful than fruit eaters. Because they don't have weakness even if it's under water fight.

He is beastly, if I saw Shanks in an ally, I would run.

Strongest of the yonko

So strong,
Able to manipulate almost anything including time

2 Gol D. Roger

I din't really get this. He has'nt really show his power. But, being able to be pirate king, he must have to be strong.

I don't know how is he the strongest but I predict he is because he became the pirate king and if he did he beaten almost every single pirate that's he's enemy in his way.

We may not have seen him throughout the anime, we know that he was able to earn the respect of Whitebeard (even though they were sort of enemies) and he was never caught by the marines, instead HE TURNED HIMSELF IN (because he was pretty much a dead man anyways because of the mysterious disease that he caught) but all in all, Roger was basically a mortal god among men

This guy is the pirate king why isn't he number one? But I know shanks is very strong probably second

3 Monkey D. Dragon

He is luffy's father and even has a strong and famous marine as his father! He can even control the weather! What else is there to say? He is opposing the world government so he has to be super strong rite? He should be on par with gol d roger if they ever fought!

He has the secret power of dragon in him so he most be super stronger than they have giving him out to be.

If dragon is opposed to world govt then he knows the true history... So obviously he is as strong as gold d roger... Hence he should share top spot

If we say sabo is as strong as fujitora and is second strongest then dragon would at least be stronger then akainu kizaru and the other admiral together

4 Edward Newgate (Whitebeard)

Gu ra ra ra ra!

Literally worlds strongest man; he was one of the few people able to compete with the pirate king himself! Has to be the strongest in One Piece!

Whitebeard is the most powerful one piece character because he can punch air that can make crack that can make earthquake and tsunami and only person who can fight Gol D. Roger with draw result.

Dud ist Whitebeard he is the stongest at all... or was

V 48 Comments
5 Monkey D. Garp

Garp was able to go toe to toe against GOLD ROGER, Garp should be way higher on this list, JUST FOR THIS REASON

I think garp should be number one because when they were fighting Shiki, the Marines were more concerned about getting garp out the area than fighting Shiki and also when Marco fought all three admirals he was on par but one punch from garp and that was it.

He is really strong and if Sengoku wouldn't have stopped him in the war, aka inu would have been dead

Garp can punch logia with out haki

6 Marshall D. Teach (Blackbeard)

Are you kidding me?

He wouldn't be a good opponent even for nami?

You serious?

He has incredible strength even without his Devil fruit abilitys

Think Before you Talk

He can absorb the Power of Devil fruit Users

Shanks doesn't Even have any devil fruit Power so the

"Yami Yami No Mi" doesn't effect on him but still he could damage shanks like that and he nearly broke ace's neck with just one hit

He also Punched whitebeard away from floor with just one blow

Blackbeard has full of weakness newgate said but still he is the one who put a scar on shanks left eye "ON GUARD" not "OFF GUARD" so still we cannot underestimate blackbeard

Having 2 Devil Fruit Powers and stopping devil fruit powers. the power to destroy the world and the other power to dissipate anything makes him overpowered

He beat edward

7 Monkey D. Luffy Monkey D. Luffy Monkey D. "Straw Hat" Luffy is a fictional character and the protagonist of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

As luffy is the main character he is bound to surpass all other characters. he has a lot of expectations from his family crew and himself. he can do any thing he wants cause he's awesome. Kind of reminds me of Naruto or Natsu

Well we all know at the end who will be the pirate king I want his final battle to be with the garp shanks or fleet admiral

Well, I know this is quite usual because he is the main protagonist... But I just love his Devil Fruit Ability because it is Paramecia, not as strong as Logia but it could be more powerful than that because he is so creative in using it... He's a good competitor in the One Piece Universe and a threat to the world according to Akainu, the other one being Ace.

He is like Roger in many ways according to many! And funny too!

I think that Luffy will be the strongest (character) because he always surpasses all the other characters in the series. And he never gives up on anything.. like believing his family or crew friends. ( but that's just my opinion).

8 Sengoku

The hell? He is THE ADMIRAL. He is should be on top 5, are you stupid or something

Because of he's name sengoku same as son Goku that why

I don't even know why he isn't here. He is FLEET ADMIRAL for gods sake


V 10 Comments
9 Dark King Rayleigh

He is strong without a devil fruit

Even kizaru admitted that rayleigh was pretty strong even though he was that old. Also rayleigh is described in the series as being 100 times stronger than the eleven supernovas

Any man who stood beside the pirate king and served as his vice captain is instantly awesome in my book

He's stronger than sengoku

V 29 Comments
10 Kaido

Kaido is op he might be immortal he's the most powerful creature and is said to match white beard or even be stronger

In one on one fight always bet on Kaido

Kaido is said to be strong enough to fight Whitebeard and can jump from a sky island... Maybe even immortal

He's the strongest creature shannks is number 1 purely cause of fan bias

V 20 Comments

The Contenders

11 Shiki

He have gravity devil fruit he can make whatever things he touch fly unless human and animal

The rival of roger and white bearb he fighted sengoku and garp at the same time during 3 days


12 Dracule Mihawk Dracule Mihawk

He is the one of the only characters who has never been injured even ONCE

If anyone has to fight hawk eyes, they can't tell him not to use sword because he's a swordsman and the greatest one... Then no one, I said no one will stand a chance against mihawk hawk eyes

We never even saw him using his 100% power, not even 50% of it. When he fought Luffy at Marine Ford, do you guys really think he's gonna kill Luffy? Since he knows Shanks were the one who made Luffy a pirate and all he only did a swing towards Whitebeard but it was deflected by Diamond Jozu. Small parts of the diamonds went off and imagine if Mihawk does more than 100 swings

He is the best swordsmen and was able to go toe to toe with shanks. Defeated and trained Zoro. Also one of the coolest people and is able to defeat 5000 ships leaving one only

V 21 Comments
13 Whitebeard

The fact that Zoro is above Whitebeard is beyond me, but anyways Whitebeard is dubbed the strongest man, and rightfully so. Even in his old age, he DESTROYED Marineford, took multiple shots from all three Admirals and just walked it off.

The world's strongest man is rank 14.. Seriously?

Stated he's the strongest so I don't know why we're having a discussion. or why I'm here. It's all in your head, zombie, zombie, zombie.

No dude there's another whiteboard entry and he's #4

14 Roronoa Zoro Roronoa Zoro Roronoa Zoro, nicknamed "Pirate Hunter" Zoro, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

The reason everyone thinks Luffy is stronger is because they never finished a fight. Luffy's weakness is blades, Zoro's strength is swords. Also, he's basically the Karachi of One Piece, and everyone knows Kakashi is the coolest character ever. Zoro is undoubtedly the strongest, but he's too lazy to go all out. The only times he ever comes close to death is when he was previously injured... but he still WINS. BOOM. Not only that, he fight enemies on par with Luffy, injured, and WINS. DOUBLE-BOOM. He has only ever lost one battle, to Hawk Eye Mihawk. He is obviously the bae. Try to deny it. TRY.

He is undoubtly someone who will be the best swordsman ever. His eyes can prove it. Even he's scary, his smile is kinda cool. His coolness matches with his position as co-captain and swordsman. For some reason, I think Zoro is the strongest crew in SHP. Only due to his unluckiness, he didn't meet the strongest opponent for every arcs.

The only reason why people think luff is stronger is because he's the main character. But he fought people that could kill Luffy, injured. BAM! (this was because he fights people who use blades and Luffy would have a bit of trouble he may not lose though) You think Luffy always picks the correct fight? No, it's Zoro who does

15 Akainu Akainu

Can't believe he's lower than Luffy. In the current stage of the manga/anime, Akainu would roast the Straw Hats, literally. He deserves to be in at least the Top Tens, though I do not like him for killing Ace.

Dude is a monster strongest fighter we have seen for the navy, now head admiral. Hate his absolute justice but at this point in the anime, we haven't fully experienced anyone who can beat him. Old injured Whitebeard nope. Aokiji nope. In the Manga I would put Big Mom as the strongest.

I'm just glad Garp is higher then this fool

He should be in top 10

V 20 Comments
16 Eneru

Considering his unique devil fruit power, Luffy is the only character with the ability to resist his attacks, but we'll never know if any other character could through shear strength withstand being massively electrocuted or land an attack.

There is so many things eneru can do with his power that would make him invincible think about it he conquered the moon aND IS KING HE doesn't BREATHE OXYGEN? /! YEAH SO MANY THINGS HE CAN DO THE FACT IS LIGHTNING IS THE 2ND FASTEST IN THE SERIES NEXT TO LIGHT AND IT IS SAID THAT THE LIGHTNING FRUIT IS THE MOST POWERFUL FRUIT FOR DESTRUCTION

Eneru should be so much higher he is so under rated luffy was the only who could stop him cause he was rubber.

This guy could beat everyone in luffy's crew and destroy sky island! The only reason why he lost to luffy is because he's rubber. Other people can't even damage him

V 13 Comments
17 Garp

He's not a devil fruit eater but he bring down marco down and he is the marine's hero and fight against the king of the pirate and shiki

Stronger than 3 admirals.

Garp is already up top

Garp is the father of Dragon and grandfather of Luffy he went toe to toe with Gold D Roger and Whiteneard for years.

18 Aokiji

Aokiji I would say is one of the strongest people on this list, he lasted 10 days fighting a guy that was made out of lava while he is ice, so by definition he should've lost. He also could kill nearly all on this list by simply touching them

Aokiji 21? What is this joke... Obviously you don't know the power of this guy.

Why is he so low... I mean I know he isn't the strongest but his devil fruit power is so cool...he should move higher

Yes Aokiji is one of my favorite character n he is so so powerful n I never even saw him using his full power or half power he always uses his very less but he always win he lost with albino but still

19 Sakazuki (Akainu)



20 Kuzan (Aokiji)

Dude one of the strongest admiral he even take down the straw hat pirates

21 Big Mom

She's already on the list (Charlotte Linlin).

who is she

22 Silvers Rayleigh
23 Charlotte Linlin

She is also called Big Mom. Caesar Clown once swindled her; of course, he begged the Straw Hats to protect him from her because he was too cowardly to face her wrath.

Able to control the weather. Take away your life span. Has an army of Hommies. Is a giant. Has a an OP family. So... What can't she do?

One of the Yonko.

What? She is a Yonkou! Even her commanders have bounties over beli

24 Trafalgar Law Trafalgar Law

This man is one of the seven warlords, he's ables to switch the souls of various people (hilariously exemplified by Nami Sanji) the man killed VIRGO with ONE SINGLE SOLITARY STRIKE, (the guy should be a wee bit higher don't you think

I know there is a limitation and weaknesses on his ability but he's power is so unique and cool..

One of the best with his famous " room "

Gamma Knife so surreal

25 Borsalino (Kizaru)

This guy deserves top 5

Top 5
he held down whitebeard staff with one leg
casually raped a bunch of supernovas
had the edge against rayleigh
and has the power to travel around the earth 7.5 times a second
all while being the highest most chill character in one piece
he deserves no.4 or 3 spot

26 Fujitora

The guy is awesome, he can casually call meteors down from the sky and lift a giant warship. He is also confident enought in his abilities to disobay the fleet commander.

27 Portgas D. Ace Portgas D. Ace Portgas D. Ace, born as Gol D. Ace and nicknamed "Fire Fist" Ace, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

Should be higher than at least Zoro, if this list was before the time skip... Ace, the fire fist which is one of the strongest characters

He should be higher on the list. His bounty is even higher than luffy's and he is for sure stronger than zoro

Were talking about the guy with a bounty of 550,000,000 Berries, he also is intellegent and is one of the Commanders of the most powerful current pirates, the Whitebeard Pirates.

He is stronger than luffy and commander of whitebeards crew!

28 Magellan

Because he is the warden of the great prison in the entire one pice

Why Magellan is in rank 28 he should be in top 1-15

Don't know why. I really hope the next nakama will be a girl. But seeing magellan, I can't help... Poison! Well I want to see him more!

Basically untouchable. Defeats Blackbeard and his crew in a single wipe. Probably even Haki users can't atttack him without taking damage themselves.

29 Kizaru

He asks people if they've ever been kicked at light speed...

No-one is faster than that guy, I mean, he is LIGHT. Because of his speed, he gets the highest momentum. Don't think anyone is as strong as this guy.

He isn't a justice fanatic, plus, he's not even taking part in the fight of Kizaru and Akaino in order to become the next leader. He doesn't have any interest in becoming the leader in power, which I think, is the best proof how powerful he must be.

"Have you ever been kicked at the speed of ligth? "
Sanji's future opponent. The speed gods, fire vs light. They even have the same dressing style!

30 Donquixote Doflamingo Donquixote Doflamingo

Are you guys stupid this man is a warlord super powerful have you seen all he can do with his devil fruit he can fly put a barrier around a village and he can't get cut

He controls People. He could have taken control of the pirate king or any of the other strong people on this list and made them kill themselves.

This my hero... I Beg he can become a Pirate King!

Well we never got to see a 1v1 of Luffy and Joker but we sure as hell did see Law getin wrecked :DD

31 Dragon

Why is Dragon's name appearing a second time?!? His name already appeared one time in the top tens.

When the World Government thinks that Dragon is the most dangerous criminal, he really shouldn't be underestimated. Besides, his subordinates are very strong fighers like Ivankov and Kuma

32 Nico Robin Nico Robin

She has a tragic past but is still a good person. And she's willing to give up her own life to save her friends/crewmates.

Using the full potential of her powers, she would be almost indestructible.

What has Robin ever done to get so high on this list? She never fought a strong opponent, unless you count Crocodile who destroyed her in seconds. She has very low stamina and is very slow which dampen her powers. She had to get saved many times, she doesn't really do much, she got no noteworthy feat, she got overshadowed by nearly everyone in Dressrosa. So why? Because of what she could potentially do? Someda?.Perhaps? - Annabelle6

Robin is way too high on this list. She isn't that strong really... - madrigaelle

33 Arlong Arlong Saw-Tooth Arlong is a sawshark fishman. He was the pirate captain of the all fishman crew, the Arlong Pirates and a former member of the Sun Pirates. He is known for being the main villain in the Arlong Arc and had the highest bounty in East Blue before being defeated by Monkey D. Luffy. Like many other more.

Arlong is a merman so he has a great advantage underwater. He is ruthless and brutal and flat out hates humans. The only person strong enough to defeat Arlong was Luffy. It was a tough battle, but in the end Arlong is crushed and his back is broken. If it wasn't for Luffy and his crew Coco Village would have never escaped Arlong's rule so he should be higher on the list.

I think he is the strongest in this list cause all devil fruit user's can't fight in his battlefield of course the underwater dude he's a merman he can breathe underwater without oxygen tank on his back😉

34 Boa Hancock Boa Hancock Hancock has a well proportioned figure compared to the abnormal and huge appearance of her sisters. She is a very tall, slender woman with long black hair that extends past her waist with locks of hair that frame her face down to her chin, pale skin, large breasts, a high forehead, and dark brown (dark more.

She can turn people to stone and can own everybody

Shes hot

Come on guys she has Haoshoku Haki! I'm not sure about post timeskip, but she can definitely beat Zoro pre timeskip! She should be higher than Robin at the least. - Goku02

She can make all the people fall inlove (Not luffy)
and using her DF powers she can turn them into a stone

35 Enel

Invincibility, he was just unfortunate to have met Luffy, his natural weakness, rubber.

Without luffy he might be unbeatable by any pirate

Just an unlucky lad

36 Sabo

Has both the training of Dragon and Ace combined. His fingers alone can snap a Vice Admiral sword and his skull. His finst is strong enough to destroy the arena floor with a single punch and he'd just eaten a devil fruit and was still growing accustomed to it's power. Not the strongest, but certainly should be higher on the list

At the manga he reveals that he is alive. Stronger than ever. As strong or even stronger than Luffy.

Do I even need to say anything, We don't know anything about this guy (anime watchers not readers) apart from he's the strongest Warlord.

42 Jinbe

I don't like Jinbe, he's boring and overrated.

Is this a joke? Even Luffy couldn't beat Jinbe.

Usopp is very weak but I truley do think he will become a great warrior of the sea.

He was the captain of the sunny pirates, which included Arlong. It was after they split up that Arlong became Captain of his own band of merman. Jinbe isn't a ruthless killer like Arlong though.

Why are names appearing over and over again!

46 Issho (Fujitora)
47 Bartholomew Kuma
48 Kuina Kuina

If she were alive, she would likely be more powerful than Zoro and become the World Strongest Swordman. With the massive talent she has portrayed as a kid, I believe that she would have been able to surpass Dracule Mihawk eventually had she not died. - Goku02

She is legit the bomb. Zoro never stood a chance, neither would anyone else.

49 Jack

Jack has a 9 figure bounty. 'nough said. He might not be as strong as Kaido, but he deserves a spot up there with the best of them.

50 Buggy

Strongest character in the series, no arguments.

Buggy is too weak luffy could take put his whole crew with his conquerors haki

He s my favorite character. I know he is weak but his crew is strong now.
