The interest of the fanbase has never been shaken, staying true to the anime and/or manga. As this series has been around for a very long time, you can only imagine the hundreds of characters we have encountered along the way. The sea 🌊 is filled with many thrilling adventures including Pirates as well as the Marine, but among all these characters which one is the strongest? ? We've rounded up the best of the best to answer this question. With that in mind, we bring you a list of One Piece's most powerful 💪 characters! Here is our ranking of the most talented living characters in the saga:

Doflamingo, also known under the pseudonym "Joker" 🤡 is certainly one of the most hated New World antagonists in the entire saga! He is a member of the 7 Warlords, but he was also part of the Celestial Dragons group. He possesses a “Paramecia” type Devil Fruit the “Ito Ito no Mi” and his greatest strengths are: deception, his Haki of Kings, and his ability to manipulate people; it also gives him the air of a cunning Captain. His ability, allowing him to manipulate people like puppets, comes from his "Devil Fruit", which allows him to control humans against their will. In doing so, he was able to seal the fate of King Riku of Dressrosa when he forced him with the help of his sons to harm his own people, to obtain the title of King 👑 of this country!



Charlotte Katakuri is none other than the 2nd son of the Yonko Big Mom, and a Sweet Commanders of her own mother's crew as well as the Minister of Flour of the Wheat Island. 🌾 He too has terrifying power and a bounty of 1,057,000,000 Berry. His main strength is his Observation Haki allowing him to see into the near future. He is also considered the strongest of the three commanders; even Capone Bégé, one of the members of the Eleven Supernovae, is not comfortable with his presence. His Devil Fruit power the "Mochi Mochi no Mi" grants him the ability to transform into Mochi, i.e. sticky rice, 🍚 and while that looks adorable, he has proven to be a powerful opponent during his fight


Monkey D. Dragon

It is difficult for us to ignore the next Pirate King in this TOP,  of course, we are talking about the Straw Hat Captain! Although Luffy Now owns Gear 4 as well as his Snakeman form, however, he is not yet powerful enough to compete with the most powerful antagonists in this world. Lately, he acquired a bounty of 1,500,000,000 Berrys following his victory against Katakuri but also for having destabilized the Kingdom of Big Mom. 🏝️ It is thanks to his creativity, his ambition, and his devil fruit, like Paramaecia, the "Gomu Gomu no Mi" that Luffy was able to get there! Not to mention that he also possesses the powerful "Haki of Kings" although we do not yet know all the mysteries surrounding this Haki! He is certainly one of the most suitable people in this world to become the Pirate King., 🤴 quite simply, because his father is none other than Monkey D. Dragon, his grandfather is the hero Garp and his last name includes the famous letter "D". We are convinced that in our next ranking of One Piece characters, Monkey D. Luffy will be on the podium!

Issho, also known as Fujitora, or “The Violet Tiger” 🐯 is a formidable Admiral of the Marine. He is a blind 54-year-old man possessing the Devil Fruit " Zushi Zushi no Mi ". Issho has a range of very powerful techniques allowing him to manipulate gravity as well as to create gravitational barriers. Thanks to the mastery of his fruit, he is also able to control meteorites close to the earth! He is proficient in both Armament Haki and Observation Haki, which is quite common among Marine Admirals. His favorite technique is certainly the "Gravito" basic technique allowing him to modify gravity horizontally or vertically using his saber. VS'mighty swordsman ⚔️ of the world of One Piece! It is for all these reasons that we have decided to hoist Fujitora to 12th place in this ranking! 



Also known as Kuzan, Aokiji was once one of the three admirals of the Marine before partnering with the new Yonko, Blackbeard. Although he is no longer part of the Marine, he is no less formidable. His Devil Fruit the "Hie Hie no Mi" allows him to manipulate the frost 🧊 at will and his control is so intense that he can cover miles of ocean ice in a matter of moments. Aokiji is so powerful that he was recommended by Sengokuin order to become the next Chief Admiral! He, unfortunately, lost his duel between him and Akainu 🔥 in order to obtain this title. His devil fruit also allows him to move quickly on the sea by freezing the water under his feet. Therefore, although he has devil fruit, he is not afraid of water!



Dracule Mihawk, also known by the pseudonym Falcon Eye, is one of the powerful characters we saw at the start of the series. He is considered to be the greatest fencer 🤺 who lived in this world, a title he kept throughout the series! He's a Shichibukai with a previously unknown bounty! It is not without reason that we Mihawk is present within this ranking; his superhuman physical abilities and his sword technique made him an incredibly powerful master swordsman. ⚔️ At the start of the saga, he was able to beat Zoro with a simple dagger, usually used as a table knife. Subsequently, Mihawk will become the master of Roronoa Zoro, because he detected in him an immeasurable potential! Therefore, you must prepare to see Zoro appear in our next TOP!


Monkey D. Garp

Monkey D. Garp is also known as " The Hero of the Marine" or "Garp the Hero". If these names don't mean anything to you, you must have missed a few episodes of the One Piece saga, because it is the grandfather of Monkey D. Luffy and the father of Monkey D. Dragon! 🐉 He is a Marine instructor who was previously Vice-Admiral. He owes his title of "Hero of the Marine" for defeating the Rock Pirates with the help of Gol D. Roger. According to our information, Garp is 78 years old and measures 8’76 (2m87)! He owes his strength and fame to his efforts, for he does not possess Devil Fruit.! 🍈 He is nevertheless able to manipulate the different forms of Haki in the same way as the Admirals. Garp is also responsible for his fleet of soldiers and is bound to have years of combat experience, so much so that we can consider him one of the strongest members of the Marinewe've seen so far. in the series. This man can launch a cannonball with his own hands. It is not for nothing that Gol D. Roger was his biggest rival!

Sengoku was the former Admiral and Commander-in-Chief of the Marine before he resigned from his post! He is also known as "Sengoku the Buddha" due to his Mythical Zoan type demon fruit, the "Hito Hito no Mi Daibutsu" which means Giant Buddha! He is now an Inspector General of the Marine.⚓ He is a longtime friend of Monkey D. Garp, the adopted grandfather of Ace with the Burning Fists! He is renowned for his tactical skills which are based on years of training and military experience. In addition to having privileges and skills very similar to those of Garp, his devil fruit " Giant Buddha"🌟 is incredibly powerful! It's his devil fruit, moreover, that gives him immeasurable strength that few Pirates can rub shoulders with. By the way, did you know that Sengoku raised Don Quixote Rocinante?



Borsalino is a powerful Admiral of the Marine, who is also known as Admiral Kizaru or simply "The Yellow Monkey". 🐵 He is the only Admiral of the Marine who will remain in that post following the 2-year ellipse. Kizaru is not just an Admiral of the Marine like any other, he is also considered to be one of the greatest fighters in the Marine and the World Government! He is so powerful that he can hold in 1vs1 against former Yonko, Whitebeard! Borsalino Kizaru has a "Logia-type" type devil fruit named "Pika Pika no Mi" which means Luminescent Fruit (Glint Glint Fruit). ⚡ ToUsing his fruit, Kizaru can move at the speed of light, shoot laser beams or even materialize a sword of light! Kizaru is a very versatile fighter as well as a very dangerous foe! Although Silver Rayleigh is not part of this TOP, know that Kizaru can face this monster of power! 


Monkey D. Dragon

Father of Monkey D. Luffy himself, Dragon 🐲 is certainly one of the strongest and most mysterious people we've ever seen on the show. This guy is so influential in the series that his nickname is literally "Dragon the Revolutionary " and he leads his revolutionary army. He is also considered the World's Most Wanted Man by the World Government, which is why we know he holds incredible power! But also certainly, because its only objective is to overthrow the current World Government! We are sure of only one thing about him, he is indeed the father of Monkey D. Luffy! Although the One Piece saga has been around for over 20 years, we still don't know about Dragon Devil Fruit. ! 🍈 But from what we have been able to see, it seems that this powerful Revolutionary is able to control the weather and would therefore have a meteorological power! Much like Tornado in the X-Men, he would be able to create tornadoes, lightning, but also create rain. Monkey D. Dragon also possesses the Haki of Kings according to Ivankov during the War arc at Marineford!

Big MOm

The penultimate arc of the One Piece anime, brought us shoulder to shoulder with the crew of the most famous Yonko, Big Mom. Also known as Emperor Charlotte Linlin. 👸 This woman manages the powerful land of Totto Land and she is also the antagonist of Arc Tougato. Big Mom's bounty is difficult to estimate precisely, but we know it hovers around Berrys' 3,000,000,000! She runs her own crew, and the majority of the senior officers are actually her own children. Indeed, according to our information, Big Mom would have had 43 husbands with whom she would have had 39 daughters and 46 sons! 👼 If you thought Katakuri and Smoothie were powerful, wait until you see their mom. Without Haki, her skin is very difficult to damage, making her difficult to defeat. She also has the power of the devil fruit of the Paramecia type "Soru Soru no Mi" which allows her to interact directly with souls and therefore with people's lives! She is also able to transfer her very souls within non-animated objects or bodies, these animated objects are called Hoomies and live mainly on Totto Land. 🏝️



A mentor to Luffy, Shanks clearly deserves a spot in One Piece's top five most powerful characters. Also known as "The Redhead", he is one of the Four Emperors from One Piece. It is therefore a Yonko in the same way as Kaido, Big Mom, or even Blackbeard. Shanks is the captain of the Red Hair Pirates. As a former member of the Gold D. Roger's team, he has extensive New World experience. The most important of these powers is certainly his Haki of Kings. 👑 Only one in 1,000,000 people have this power according to our information. Shanks' premium is estimated at 4,048,000,000 Berrys 💰.



The Hundred Beasts Kaido is the captain of the Hundred Beasts crew, known as the "world most powerful creature" so he deserves a prominent role on this list. If the name isn't a telling clue, the fact that he's a Yonko should be. His strength and endurance are certainly his greatest strengths. Kaido is so strong that it is very difficult to hurt him elsewhere. 🩸 Currently Kaido occupies the land of Wano! He is also a former Pirate of the famous Rocks crew, and he has a "Mythic Zoan" type Devil Fruit and a bounty of 4,611,100,000 Berrys!

Black beard

Blackbeard, also known as Marshall D. Teach👥 is the Admiral of the Blackbeard Pirates. Blackbeard is the last Yonko, and he's also a former Pirate of the Whitebeard Pirates! It belonged to the 2nd Yonko Fleet, under the control of Portgas D. Ace. Blackbeard is an exceptional antagonist, as he is the only man in the saga who has been able to assimilate two Devil Fruits. (which is normally impossible) The first fruit is the "Yami Yami no Mi" which is the fruit of darkness, while its second fruit is the powerful "Gura Gura no Mi" the fruit of Tremor. 🌍 These 2 devil fruits make him a powerful and respected man on the seas of the New World! Thanks to its two demon fruits, its destructive power is completely insane! He will be able to face any opponent who presents himself in front of him in the future! It also has the fastest evolution of Prime 💰 known to date in the saga. It went from a premium of B198,200,000 to 2,445,800,000 Berrys! Not to mention the fact that he allied himself with Kuzan. It is for all these reasons that Blackbeard amply deserves 2nd place in this ranking!



We finally arrive at the first place of our TOP! Akainu Sakazuki is the Admiral and Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Marine. ⚓ He has a "Logia" type devil fruit which is the "Molten Fruit". Although we placed him number 1 in our top, it is extremely difficult to separate him from the 4th Yonko Blackbeard. Quite simply, because these two antagonists are considered incredibly strong! Let's hope that we have the chance 🍀 to see the opponents soon in a fight to be able to determine a winner! Although Akainu exceptionally masters his fruit, he also possesses enormous influence in the world as the Supreme Leader of the Marine, which is why we have decided to position him first in this TOP. 🥇 In fact, one of the biggest obstacles for the Straw Hat crew to overcome!

What do you think of our article about who can triumph over Kaido? What... ? you still haven't read it ?! I invite you to enjoy it by reading it now! For more information: Who can beat Kaido?
