One Piece is all about the Pirates, as they’re the people who roam the seas freely, with might. Over the years, we’ve seen lots of strong One Piece Pirates, with even stronger ones appearing as the series moved forward.
Top 5 Strongest Pirates In One Piece
In this post, we’ll be discussing the strongest pirates to ever live in One Piece. So let’s get started!
So, we begin this list with the strongest creature in the world of One Piece, Kaido. Kaido is the general of the Beasts Pirates. He has eaten a devil fruit that lets him turn into a dragon at will. Kaido is extremely powerful, as he took out a man worth 1.5 Billion berries in just one hit. He’s also indestructible and has the ability to survive almost anything. In his pirating life, Kaido has been defeated 7 times by his enemies.
The Golden Lion, Shiki, ranks 4th on this list. While his exact strength is unknown, we do know that he started his pirating career at Beehive island under Rocks. Shiki then went on to make a name for himself and was one of the strongest pirates of his era. He had the biggest Armada in the Grand Line about 24 years ago (26 after the timeskip), and was only defeated by Gol D. Roger by mere luck of the weather. Shiki also fought Garp and Sengoku alone and managed to gravely injure Garp in this fight. He was sent to Impel Down, but he broke free soon, becoming the only known pirate to have ever broken free from the stronghold at the time.
3. Rocks D. Xebec
Rocks D. Xebec was the captain of the Rocks Pirates. He was a man of huge caliber and his goal was to become the King of the World. Rocks’ crew consisted of people like Big Mom, Kaido, Shiki, Whitebeard. So, one would naturally assume that he’s stronger than them, right? Well, not exactly. Big Mom and Kaido were nowhere as strong as they are now. The same applies to Shiki and even Whitebeard. While Whitebeard was close to his forties, he wasn’t the strongest man in the world at that time. He also hadn’t formed the Whitebeard pirates, and thus, wasn’t in the prime of his powers. Rocks are still very impressive, but I believe both Roger and Whitebeard managed to surpass him in the 20 years after his death.
Whitebeard was the world’s strongest man in One Piece. He got this title way before the start of the series, and even during Roger’s age, he was the world’s strongest man, which is an incredible feat. He held the power to destroy the entire world with his Gura Gura no Mi. Whitebeard was the only known pirate who was equal to Gol D. Roger. He had a bounty of over 5 Billion berries, which tells you what a great threat he was. He was just as strong as Roger, and the only reason he’s number 2 is that we can’t place two characters in the same spot.
1. Gol D. Roger
Finally, we have Gol D. Roger at number one. In terms of strength, he was just as strong as Whitebeard. Roger clashed with strong characters like Shiki, Garp, and Whitebeard constantly. He also found the One Piece and became King of the Pirates. After that, he turned himself over to the Marines, and before his death, ushered the start of the Great Pirate Era.
