Strongest One Piece Characters


The Top Ten

1 Shanks Shanks ''Red-Haired" Shanks is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. He is the captain of Red Hair Pirates and member of Yonko. He is also a former member of the legendary Roger Pirates, the only group to successfully conquer the Grand Line.

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.

Now guys. Shanks is a Yonko. He survived the Grand Line with Gol D. Roger. What else could you ask for? Yes, some people could argue that Roger was more powerful. But he's dead! Sorry, but Shanks rules over everyone on this list. Though eventually Luffy will beat him one day.


2 Gol D. Roger

He was the Pirate King for a reason. He's the reason why One Piece started ffs. The main character wants to have his title. He was the captain of the main characters hero.

Whitehead was labelled the world's strong from comparison to him. If this guy is only said to have a rival in prime whiteheads and oppose the government for as long as he did then he was definitely the strongest

Go to 1

Pirate king for a reason

3 Edward Newgate (Whitebeard)

Gu ra ra ra ra!

How is this guy not 1st?!
At the age of 72 he could probbs still beat shanks. Now imagine him in his prime

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.

4 Monkey D. Dragon

He's a monkey and a dragon

The Most Wanted Man In The World

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!

Strongest Devil Fruit User
Father of Luffy
Son of Garp
Teacher of Sabo
Most Wanted Man
His strength equals to Shanks

5 Kaido

Well, this is interesting. Technically speaking, Kaido may be the strongest living creature in all One Piece universe. Let the narrator speak.
Narrator: "To sum up his life, he had been defeated seven times as a pirate and was captured by the Navy or his enemies 18 times.
He underwent torture repeatedly and had been living as a criminal.
It bears repeating. He challenged the Navy and the Four Emperors single-handedly and was captured 18 times; sentenced to death 40 times.
When he was hanged, the chain broke. When he was sent to a guillotine, the blade shattered. When he was sentenced to impalement, the spear crumbled. Consequently, he sank 9 giant prision ships.
That means no one could kill him, even himself
The man looking for a place to die-
Kaido, King of the Beasts."

What is wrong with you pinhead.

He is literally 'The strongest creature in the world'. Goes without saying that he is the strongest character in one piece universe as of now

Kaido should at least be in the top three. - Ninjaturtlesforpresident

6 Monkey D. Garp

Strongest marine, equal to roger

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

7 Marshall D. Teach (Blackbeard)

His devil fruit power is deadly - AlixM


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

8 Sengoku

He has goku in his name he's gotta be strong

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

He has a very powerful Devil Fruit. - SamVision

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

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

10 Charlotte Linlin Charlotte Linlin

She should be above blackbeard...and rayleigh should be below dragon..

Should be in top ten - Serenity

All those other ladies in the show don't even come close

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.


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 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.

He is the one who is not mighty. But godly.

He is stronger than shiki and sengoku

He a goat

He is mc of this anime so he is stronger than all

13 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

14 Akainu Akainu Sakazuki, formerly known by his admiral alias Akainu is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. He is the current fleet admiral of the Marines. Because of his actions, Akainu was one of the main antagonists of the Marineford Arc and after his promotion, he became one more.

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

OKAY, I hate this bastard for killing my beloved Ace, but I DO admit he is strong.

15 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 used to fight with shanks all the time when he still got both arms! An throughout all of one piece he didn't get hurt even once!

16 Sakazuki (Akainu)

Strongest of the admirals. Luffy will fight him someday. And I guess Fujitora and Kizaru will fight Zoro and Sanji respectively. It's written in the sky. - Serenity



17 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

How could this be are you mad?

18 Kizaru Kizaru

Light is 300,000,000 meters per second

What the heck, he could shriek Luffy easily and can pretty much beat most people on this. In my opinion he could destroy Akainu and Aokiji decently. He could also blast eneru easily since he is faster. So he should be top ten.

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

19 Katakuri

He is one of the strongest yonko commanders and the person with the highest bounty seen in the One Piece universe, he definitely should be in the top 20.

This guy is so AWESOME!

20 Donquixote Doflamingo Donquixote Doflamingo

There may be stronger characters, but nobody is as heinous as him. Who could run the underground black market like him, blackmail the world government and celestial dragons, with his subordinates, erase people (kind of) and there legacy’s from the world, and KILL HIS AWESOME YOUNGER BROTHER?!?!?!

Luffy had to go gear 4th, and needed support just to defeat doffy...

Descendant of Celestial Dragons

Need I say more?

Should be higher than this

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.

21 Jack 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.

22 Rob Lucci Rob Lucci

How is Lucci number 61? Lucci tossed Luffy and Zoro to the side during the Water 7 arc.

23 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.

Zoro is very overestimated, he never did much of anything since the timeskip. Many characters bellow him deserve to be much higher than him.

Way too high what people are delusional

24 Magellan

28th...Seriously? Can we reference the time he took down Blackbeard's whole crew when ranking him? What about the fact that he literally HAS to be stronger than the entire prison population to keep the operation under wraps?!

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!

25 Fujitora Fujitora

One of the admirals

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.

26 Sanji Sanji Vinsmoke Sanji, most commonly known by his moniker "Black Leg" Sanji, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. He is the cook of the Straw Hat Pirates, as well as the former sous chef of the Baratie. He is also the third son of the Vinsmoke Family, thus making him more.

He should at least be in fifteenth place...

I mean, really. Sanji is like the part of the main character in this show and he's still alive using only his legs for fighting. And he didn't eat the monster fruit. I know Zoro is strong, but somehow, I can't seen to like him...

This is ridiculously too low for Sanji. Come on! His main role is a cook and is still the top 3 fighters! And his speed is insane!

Sanji's speed is out of this world. He should jump like fifty places higher just for that.

27 Pandaman

He's so powerful he moved to the one piece universe

He is so strong he has survived even a buster call!

His names Kuma.
Just saying.

28 Marco the Phoenix

For me Marco is the strongest cool, smart and strong

The 1st commander of Whitebeard Pirates

The guy who fought admiral must be ranked higher and he is 1 st commander of whitebeard and is stronger than ace

So you probably don't know that Marco is Admiral level easy and maybe yonkou level even the Gorosei said that probably the people who can beat blackbeard now are the yonkou or Marco the Phoenix Yes Garp is strong old man but he hit marco and knocked him down that easily because Marco didn't expect him so please judge fair not because you like more Luffy or Kid or someone and he is the most close to immortal character shown so far as far as damage is concerned

29 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.

I LOVE sabo he should be higher then 34 he should be in the top 10

Sabo is the strongest when he get the flare flare fruit

30 Im

I guess he's one of the final villains, if not THE final villain. - Serenity

The final boss? Gorosei are afeaid of him. The ruler of world government - Coyote1

31 Zephyr
32 Buggy

I bet he has a sister named birdy and a brother named arachnidy

Roger & Whitebeard are dead. Buggy is live

Mostly everyone has a sword and sword don’t affect him

Buggy is Obviously going to be the one who Defeats Blackbeard first. Buggy will be the final challenge for Luffy.

33 Bartholomew Kuma

Come on... He is so op

34 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.

Overrated. Most of the people below him are so much stronger - smill

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.

Arlong was strong… for pre-timeskip standards. He's one of the first opponents Luffy defeated. Before they reached Grand Line. Sorry but that makes him very weak compared to Luffy's current level. - Serenity

This guy is a total trash..HOW IS HE IN THE 23 SPOT..HOW IS JINBEI ISN'T at least AT 15-20.That just doesn't make sense the way Arlong was is really weak..even luffy at an early stage managed to beat this guy..beware that he was like x10 weaker before than he is now..And fisher tiger should be on this list too - Ryteerr

35 Bon Clay

He looks like Jim Carrey from Dumb and Dumber

He is like cool and strong like

36 Bartolomeo

This guy is very powerful if not that he appears stupid most times he can resist the strongest of attacks

He's strong in my opinion and funny

37 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.

40 Brook Brook "Soul King" Brook is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. Brook is the musician of the Straw Hat Pirates. He is a Devil Fruit user who ate the Yomi Yomi no Mi, and is undead, having been brought back into a pseudo-immortal state because of its powers.


Seriously... He is the humming brook! He is also very funny and should be at the top

41 Nefertari Vivi

Vivi is a fragile, weak princess!

? She is way too fragile and weak

Vivi could easily speedblitz Rodger, Whitebeard, and all 3 admirals.

42 Ben Beckman

The main pople from shanks' crew is definitely really strong but since we havemt seen them for longer than 1 min in any episode ot would be better to not even include them because it will confuse things

He is the strongets in shankses crew

43 Captain Kidd

He is strong as luffy and law

My name was Captain Kidd,
As I sailed, as I sailed,
Oh my name was captain kidd,
As I sailed,
My name was captain kidd and gods' laws I did forbid, and so wickedly I did as I sailed

He is so handsome

He deserves to be hogher his strength is most probably not too far from luffy and law

44 Tashigi Tashigi Captain Tashigi is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. Tashigi is a Marine officer serving under Vice Admiral Smoker in the base of G-5. She was originally introduced as Master Chief Petty Officer in Loguetown but was promoted to Ensign after the events in Alabasta. more.

At the time I’m reading this Tashigi is one place higher than Smoker. I just wish they were real and could see this poll. Smoker would flip

Weakest female eeever

45 Galdino
46 Emporio Ivankov Emporio Ivankov Emporio Ivankov, or Iva for short, is the "Queen" of the Kamabakka Kingdom, known as "Okama King" and a "Miracle Person", and an officer of the Revolutionary Army.
47 Hakuba

Can move faster then wind and will catch anyone by suprise, he beat 20+ people of luffy (timeskip colleuem level) with little less then a second inbetween each hit, rebecca was last so she knew to dodge but in a one on one, Hakuba would win against many, blackbeard can't take his fruit (i don't belive he has one) shanks might be able to match his speed but I don't know.

48 Vegapunk
49 Franky Franky "Iron Man" Franky is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. He is the shipwright of the Straw Hat Pirates.

Bro live

He is a cyborg although he isn't weak luffy had a hard time fighting him I maybe think he is stronger than sanji
