One Piece writer Oda Sensei has announced that the series conclusion is approaching as One Piece enters its final saga. Now as the final saga is near we feel the need to cover the Top 15 strongest Pirates in One Piece 2022 after Wano Arc. All the characters are ranked according to the post-Wano arc.
Here are the Top 15 Strongest Pirates in One Piece, with the major changes happing after the Wano arc, such as Luffy’s Gear 5 and Blackbeard’s two devil fruits.
15) Shiryu of the Rain
In Impel Down, Teach freed him from prison after that Shiryu joins the Blackbeard Pirates Crew. He stole the abilities of the Suke Suke no Mi (Invisibility-based Paramecia Devil Fruit) after he killed Absalom. Shiryu is a skilled swordsman who uses the legendary blade Raiu.
Shiryu is rumored to have Magellan-level strength, speed, and durability. Even before acquiring the Suke Suke no Mi’s abilities, Shiryu’s stealth ability was considered to be legendary. Shiryu is a cruel person who killed prisoners at random while working as a jailer in Impel Down. Shiryu has ranked fifteenth on this list thanks to his combat and swordsmanship skills in the latest state of One Piece.
14) “Snake Princess” Boa Hancock
Boa Hancock comes on our list at 14. Boa Hancock is so beautiful that her beauty could turn you into stone along with the brawns to turn you to dust. She is the ideal example of a woman with both strength and beauty. Boa Hancock is a former warlord, and queen of the Amazon Lily, who uses the Mero Mero no Mi ability(Love-based Paramecia Devil Fruit). She is also the captain of the Kuja Pirates. Boa Hancock’s devil fruit abilities allow her to turn people as well as non-living things to stone.
Boa Hancock is skilled in all three types of Haki and a deadly hand-to-hand fighter. She was able to kick a Pacifista turning into stone. Boa Hancock has a lethal combination of Power and Brains.
13) “Knight Of the Sea” Jinbe
In this list, our next strongest pirate is the Helmsman of the Straw Hats, “Knight of the Sea” Jimbe Oyabun. Jimbe is a Fishman who is skilled in Fishman Karate. He has great strength, durability, and stamina. Jimbe is a former Captain of Sun Pirates and also a Warlord of the Sea. He is also a member of the Big Mom Pirates, which adds a tonne of experience and proof of his strength.
He became known as the Helmsman of the Crew and a fearless pirate in the One Piece World after the ability to overcome a wave of tsunami scale and defeat Who’s Who in Wano.
12) “Black Foot” Vinsmoke Sanji
Our next strongest pirate is “Black Foot” Vinsmoke Sanji who is a chivalrous cook of the Straw Hats. Sanji is skilled at Utilising the Haki for Observation and Armanent Haki. According to some theory, he is a Lunarian and one of One Piece’s Strongest Fighter.
Sanji’s body is genetically modified. The Queen’s sword broke as it struck his neck which shows how strong his body is. Sanji is the most powerful chef in One Piece because to his genetically modified body and his unique Black Leg Combat Style.
11) “Pirate Hunter” Roronoa Zoro
After receiving the sword Enma, Zoro fully manifested as the King of the Hell. Roronoa Zoro, the first Straw Hat Pirates mate, aspires to become the World’s Best Swordsman. After the time skip, Zoro’s swordsmanship abilities have greatly improved.
Zoro possesses all the three forms of Haki. Zoro is three sword style techniques. He wields three swords for this techniques: the Sandai Kitetsu, the Wado Ichimonji, and the Enma, two of which are Supreme Grade Swords among the 21 Supreme Grade Swords. Zoro possesses incredible stamina, which, combined with his devotion to his captain, makes him a force to be reckoned with.
10) Charlotte Katakuri
Next of this list is the Son of Big Mom and the First mate to the Big Mom Pirates also an admirable rival to Luffy, Charlotte Katakuri. Katakuri wields the Mochi Mochi no Mi (Mochi-based Paramecia type Devil Fruit). He has also the most powerful Observation Haki in One Piece as he is able to see a couple of seconds into the future.
Katakuri can use all the three forms of Haki very efficiently and also a honorable opponent.
9) Benn Beckman
Benn Beckman, the Red Hair Pirates’ first mate, is up next. Although nothing is known about him or his abilities, it is reasonable to assume he, too, is a powerhouse. Aside from his power, his intelligence is also to watch out for; as Oda stated, Benn is the most intelligent character in the East Blue Saga.
After fighting off Marco and Whitebeard on the spot with the raising of his gun, Benn Beckman was able to freeze an admiral, especially an overpowering one like Kizaru. That is a sufficient statement of his power for the period being, as we will unquestionably see more of it in the final saga.
8)“Mr. 0” Crocodile
Mr. 0 (Crocodile) uses the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-based Logia type Devil Fruit). He was one of the Seven Warlords, the criminal gang Baroque Works’ leader, and a pure criminal mastermind. He formed the Cross Guild in alliance with Mihawk, using his underworld contacts.
Crocodile may steal a person of his moisture as well as conduct a series of mind-boggling attacks with his devil fruit. His evil intelligence, along with his desire for dominance, makes him a major threat, ranking eighth on our list.
7) Marco The Phoenix
The Whitebeard Pirates’ first division commander, Marco the Phoenix, carries the legendary devil fruit Tori Tori no Mi, model: Phoenix, which is shaped like a zoan. He is the only user of devil fruit on this list without offensive capabilities and possesses healing skills, just like a Phoenix. He was still powerful enough to compete with Kizaru, Akainu, and Aokiji when they were at the height of their powers during the war, making him a force to be feared.
We shall see more of Marco after Wano since Whitebeard always wants to save that boy (Luffy), thus he will constantly come to his help.
6) Eustass “Captain” Kid
Eustass “Captian” Kid is the captain of the Kid Pirates and a user of the Paramecia-type fruit Jiki Jiki No Mi’s devil fruit. He can control magnetic objects and use them anyway he pleases owing to his devil fruit. He is untamed and wild, and his powerful friends just increase his strength.
Only a few people on this list, including Kid, are capable of using all three types of Haki. He can give magnetic qualities to living things and manipulate the magnetic fields and polarities of metallic objects thanks to his devil fruit awakening. When he and Law defeated Big Mom, he showed some signs of his awakening. He ranks sixth on our list because of the tremendous threat he poses as well as his unpredictable actions.
5) Trafalgar D. Water Law
One of the list’s most dangerous devil fruit eaters is Trafagar D. Water Law. He eats Ope Ope no Mi which grants its user the ability to manipulate anything and everything within a sphere of influence (even interchange bodies and souls).
Law is one of the series’ best-designed abilities as the leader of the Heart Pirates. In the Wano arc, Law was able to manipulate space by coated his sword with his sphere and utilising it to strike an opponent. This was made possible by the awakening of his demon fruit. He also possesses a range of other attacks. He ranks fifth on our list since he can heal people with his demon fruit.
4) Dracule “Hawkeye” Mihawk
“Hawkeye” Mihawk poses a serious danger to the global government because he is One Piece’s strongest swordsman. He has demonstrated his tremendous abilities and power on several occasions. Since they frequently engaged in fighting back when Shanks had both of his arms, Mihawk is the only person on this list who is powerful enough to refer to Shanks as a rival. Not to mention the fact that he was the only Warlord without a crew.
Mihawk has fully mastered his Observation Haki and Armament Haki, and he uses them in battle with great skill and casualness. Using Buggy as a front, Mihawk and Crocodile established the Cross Guild, which had a significant impact on the One Piece universe.
3) Marshall D. Teach (Blackbeard)
Teach is one of the most brutal examples of a treacherous pirate in the whole of One Piece.The Yami Yami No Mi (Devil Fruit of Darkness Logia) and Gura Gura No Mi (Devil Fruit of Quake Paramecia kind), which were once owned by The World’s Strongest Man Whitebeard himself, are two of the most potent devil fruits that he has.
His crew, which he assembled from Impel Down, includes several powerhouses who serve as the Blackbeard Pirates’ captain. One of the primary reasons Teach is ranked third on our list of the Top 15 Strongest Active Pirates in One Piece is because it is rumoured that the Gura Gura no Mi has the ability to destroy the planet when combined with the Yami Yami no mi, which is a broken devil fruit on its own.
2) Red Hair Shanks
In this list our second Pirate is non other than Red Hair Shanks. Shanks walk into the war and stop it by words. That’s exactly what Shanks did in War Summit Arc. One of the most anticipated characters in One Piece is the captain of the Red Hair Pirates, and for good reason. Out of all the previous Yonko, his crew is the most alike, and his Conquerer’s Haki is the strongest in the whole One Piece. Only Shanks, who is ranked so highly in terms of power but have only one arm, is on this list.
Shanks has a long sword which he used to split the skies with “The World’s strongest man” ( Whitebeard) himself. He is ranked second on this ranking due to his impact and his balanced but depleted power.
1) Monkey D. Luffy
The captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, “Joyboy” Luffy, is now the strongest pirate in One Piece, whether intentionally or not. He awakened his devil fruit at Wano’s climax. The fruit Gear 5 claims to be is really a Mythical Zoan Fruit Hito Hito no mi: Model Nika(Sun God), not the Gum-Gum fruit. His Devil Fruit has the ridiculous potential to spread delight by wielding freedom and hope, which is really ridiculous. It stands in sharp contrast to Blackbeard’s skills, who is thought to be the main enemy.
In addition, Luffy possesses Conquerer’s Haki, which cannot be gained by training; rather, one is born with the quality of a King. As Oda said, Luffy possesses a ridiculous devil fruit, and when combined with his mastery of all three types of haki as well as more advanced haki moves like Ryuo, he appears as One Piece’s strongest pirate.
The last chapter of One Piece has begun, and due to the plot’s ability to develop over the course of 25 years, it will now yield results. We will now wrap up this essay with this. Check out the other One Piece material if you like this, and we’ll see you again soon with more.
