Who are the strongest One Piece characters?

One Piece is a manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It started serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump on July 22, 1997. The series has been collected into 95 volumes and is still on-going to this day. The series tells the story of Monkey D. Luffy, a young boy who unintentionally ate a Devil Fruit. In doing so, he was given the power of elasticity. Together with his crew, the Straw Hat Pirates, Luffy explores the Grand Line in search of the world's ultimate treasure known as "One Piece". This is all to fulfill his dream of becoming the next King of the Pirates. The manga's popularity has resulted in an anime adaptation for it. It was produced by Toei Animation and it started airing back in 1999. In addition to that, Toei has also developed 14 films, 1 OVA, and 13 TV specials for the series so far.

Considering the scale of the series, it is no surprise that it features quite an extensive cast of characters. They range from pirates, soldiers, revolutionaries, and other adventurers. They are all fighting using some kind of superhuman or supernatural ability. Honestly, there are way too many to mention and dissect. There have a few though, that have stood out from the crowd as far superior compared to their peers. Chapter 968 of One Piece is yet to be announced but it's going to feature Lord Kozuki Oden and final moments with the Roger Pirates. While you wait, why not take a breather and do some light reading. That is why we've made this list in order to determine who are some of the strongest One Piece characters out there. Check it out below and tell us what you thought.

    Edward Newgate (more commonly known as Whitebeard) was the captain of the Whitebeard Pirates, one of the strongest pirate crews in the world. He is the bearer of the Tremor Devil Fruit and was widely known as the "Strongest Man in the World" and the "Man Closest to One Piece" after Gol. D. Roger's death. He died during the Battle of Marineford. Despite this, his legend rings true and spread throughout the world.

    Shanks (also known as "Red Hair") is the captain of the Red Hair Pirates and a member of the Yonko that rule over the New World. He was the one that found the Rubber Devil Fruit before Luffy accidentally ate it. He is known to be one of the greatest swordsmen in the world. Even after losing his arm to protect Luffy, he remains as formidable a foe as ever and his name commands both fear and respect from friend or enemy.

    Kaido of the Beast is the Governor-General of the Beasts Pirates and is a member of the Yonko ruling over the New World. He is renowned as the "Strongest Creature in the World" and holds the highest bounty for any pirate currently alive. He is the holder of the Mythical Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a massive blue-scaled Eastern dragon.

    Marshall D. Teach (more commonly known as Blackbeard) is the admiral of the Blackbeard Pirates and is one of the New World rulers, the Yonko. He is one of the major antagonists in the world of One Piece. He is the wielder of the Dark Devil Fruit which lets him manipulate darkness. Not only that, he was able to take control of the Tremor Devil Fruit when Whitebeard died. This makes him the only person in history to wield two Devil Fruits at once.

    Sakazuki (formerly known by his admiral alias, Akainu) is the fleet admiral of the Marines, succeeding the former admiral, Sengoku. He is the owner of the Magma Devil Fruit and is one of the main antagonists in One Piece. He believes that a person's heritage is a reflection of the threat they pose. This is what led him to target Ace and Luffy in order to purge their "bad blood".
