Shanks is the first one on the list, also known as Red Hair, and the chief of the Red Hair Pirates. Shanks is definitely one of the strongest pirates in One Piece. He is one of four emperors in the One Piece Universe and probably the smallest among them.
However, even though his physics is the smallest among the emperors, his skills are far from that. He also only has one hand. But, Shanks still can easily defeat his enemies even though he lost one of his hands.
2. Dracule Mihawk
What should be on the following list is Dracule Mihawk, who may have the same strength and power as Shanks. People also know him as Hawk Eyes. He is probably the strongest swordsman in One Piece. Not only that, but he is also one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. It is proof that he is very strong and powerful.
No one knows from which pirate crew he is from. However, even without a team, he still can overpower most of the crew ships. His swordplay is very majestic. So, it is clear that he is on a high level of One Piece character power level.
3. Monkey D. Dragon
The next most powerful character in One Piece is Monkey D. He is also known as the World’s Worst Criminal. It proves that he indeed had power and strength and was probably very dangerous. Monkey D. Dragon is the one who leads a revolution to overthrow the government.
This is because he thinks that the government is very corrupted. Especially the nobility system that allows the World’s Noble to oppress the lower-level citizens. He believes that the system is not right. So, he fought to erase it.
4. Marshall D. Teach
Then, there is Marshall D. Teach, who is also considered the strongest. He is also known as Blackbeard. He is the captain of Blackbeard Pirates and one of the four emperors in One Piece. In the story, he successfully defeated multiple powerful characters. So, it is clear that he is strong.
Marshall D. Teach is one of a few One Piece boy characters who are good at combat. His strong point is probably his massive build. So, it is not very surprising that he can slay most of his enemies.
5. Monkey D. Luffy
As the main character in One Piece, Monkey D. Luffy is also known for having incredible strength. He is probably one of the strongest characters in One Piece. He founded Straw Hat Pirates and was the captain of that infamous pirate’s crew.
Aside from that, Monkey D. Luffy is also one of the four emperors. It is why many people consider him one of the most powerful ones, both in anime and comics.
Then, there is Kaido, also known as Kaido of the Beasts. Aside from that, he has the title of Strongest Creature. So, it is clear that he is stronger than most of the characters in One Piece. He is one of the best One Piece characters in strength and power.
As the former of the four emperors, Kaido is very skillful at combat. He has even been a promising fighter since he was a kid. Then, as an adult, he builds a powerful military force to challenge the government.
The next pirate on the list is Buggy. People also know him as Buggy the Star Clown and the captain of Buggy Pirates. Aside from that, he is also one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. After the system of Seven Warlords dissolved, he became one of the Four Emperors.
Buggy is probably one of the few most powerful villains in One Piece. However, even though his relationship with Luffy is not exactly harmonious, they become allies in some of the arcs.
A character who deserves to be included in the list is Borsalino who is also known as Kizaru. His appearance is calm, easy-going, and sarcastic, and he seems to be laid back. However, you cannot underestimate his strength and power. Kizaru is always so relaxed during combat, which is probably his strong point.
He can make a mess, cause collateral damage, or even cause mass destruction, and still acts oblivious about it. He is an exciting pirate, indeed.
9. Gol D. Roger
The next most powerful pirate in One Piece is Gol D. Roger. People also know him as Gold Roger, the captain of the legendary Roger Pirates. He is the owner of One Piece treasure. This is why people call him the Pirate King. Sadly, he has an incurable disease. So, Gold Roger let the Marines execute him.
Gold Roger’s is big and muscular. It suits his image and his skills in combat. This is why he can own One Piece, one of the biggest and most precious treasures that ever exist in the story.
10. Monkey D. Garp
Last but not least, there is also Monkey D. Garp. If there is someone who can match Gold Roger’s power, it is probably Monkey D. Garp. As a Marine, Garp is a strong and mighty person. Many people respect him, while some of them fear him. He is literally a nightmare for a lot of his enemies.
He became a legend for a reason, especially in his younger days when he ruled the ocean.
So, those are the ranks of One Piece strongest characters you need to know. However, these ranks are kind of subjective. So, you probably can disagree and have a different opinion about it.
