Considering the popularity and range of One Piece, you can already expect an extensive cast of characters. They include 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 been 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 for you to put together who are some of the strongest One Piece characters out there. Check it out below and tell us your thoughts!
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".
We have yet to see the true power Monkey D. Dragon holds. Although it's almost a given that Dragon is a strong character. Being the commander of the Revolutionary Army, he has a sense of leadership. He is also a notorious criminal since the Revolutionary Army basically exists to overthrow the World Government. Dragon is a brave man who is willing to risk it all to get his way. You might see bits of his personality with his son, Monkey D. Luffy.
Gol D. Roger will always be one of the strongest characters that ever lived in One Piece. Although he is no longer living, his legacy as a pirate is embedded in every fan's heart. You might know him for his title The Pirate King which is a well-deserved title. He even went against Whitebeard in a fight to the odds. He is a character that possessed great power in the seas and it showed even in his last breath.
Being the only female Yonko to ever live is a great testament to Charlotte Linlin's undeniable strength. Charlotte Linlin more known as Big Mom leads the Big Mom Pirates and her power is palpable, especially when compared to her crew and the other Yonkos. Her skin is thick, literally, which makes it difficult to injure her in a heated battle. Aside from that, her Devil Fruit power allows her to interact with souls which she can also take as easily.
One Piece is the best-selling manga series in the history of the industry. It has sold over 365 million copies in Japan alone as of May 2018. Add its worldwide sales of 460 million copies in 43 countries as of November 2019. In fact, according to the statistics provider, Oricon, One Piece has consistently topped sales charts since 2008. This has been the case for a decade until it finally yielded its top spot to up and comer series, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba in 2019.
