He is a veteran with a lot of experience, as he was shown as a member of the Whitebeard Pirates from the days of Gol D. Roger.

Vista is a great swordsman, being recognized as one of the strongest two-sword style users in the world. Such is his strength that he can stand up to Dracule Mihawk to some extent. During Marineford, he was shown to possess great physical strength, as well as reflexes and fairly high speed.

He was able to repel an attack from Vice Admiral Lonz without difficulty. Another display of his strength is that during the Battle of Marineford, despite fighting individual members of the Sea Warlord and an Admiral, as well as numerous Marine officers, he did not sustain any significant injuries.

12. Jack

Crew: Beasts Pirates

He is one of the three most trusted men of Kaidou, one of the Four Emperors; As such, and within the Beasts Pirates, his authority surpasses that of Gifters, Pleasures, or any other rank. His epithet owes his name to the decaying state of the islands he passes through. His exorbitant bounty indicates that the World Government considers him extremely dangerous and threatening to their operations.

11. Shiryu

Crew: Blackbeard Pirates

As the head jailer of Impel Down, Shiryu had authority over all of Impel Down’s guards and jailers, however, due to his multiple fits of abuse of power, he was stripped of that position and thus of that privilege. Shiryu has as much strength and power as Magellan as told by Ivankov. However, with Magellan’s diarrhea being a drawback and Shiryu not possessing a Devil Fruit power, he can be considered much more dangerous than Magellan.

10. Lucky Roux

Crew: Red Hair Pirates

Not much is known about Roux’s abilities, but being a member of a Sea Emperor’s crew, he is supposed to be very powerful. Despite his round body, he was able to sneak up on a mountain bandit without being noticed. Lucky Roux usually fights with powerful lunges, looking like a bowling ball when he attacks.

9. Queen

Crew: Beasts Pirates

Being one of the “Disasters” of the Beasts Pirates, Queen has great authority in the crew, second only to Kaidou. Possessing the rank of “headliner”, Queen is one of the most powerful members of the crew, symbolizing his threat to the World Government with his bounty of 1,320,000,000 Berrys. He oversees the assassins in the Beasts Pirates service, as Kyoshiro recommended contacting him when they attacked his comrades. Queen also possesses a strong will, as he was able to stay conscious after Luffy used Haoshoku Haki.

Queen consumed the Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Brachiosaurus, a prehistoric Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows her to turn into a brachiosaurus. When he is fully transformed, Queen becomes much larger and his size surpasses even Big Mom, who is over eight meters tall. He can use the characteristic long neck of brachiosaurs in combat, mainly using it to hit distant targets. Also, his body weight is drastically increased and he can use it to his advantage, as very few opponents can withstand the pressure of his huge transformed body being slammed into them.

8. Jozu

Crew: Whitebeard Pirates

As the commander of the third division of the Whitebeard pirates, Jozu has authority over lower-ranking subordinates. He was one of the few men who withstood the powerful haki released by Emperor Shanks. He is an experienced and veteran of the Whitebeard pirates, from the days of Gol D. Roger. He is one of the strongest members of the Whitebeard Pirates, as shown by his position as commander of the 3rd Division.

7. Jesus Burgess

Crew: Blackbeard Pirates

Burgess is one of the strongest members of the Blackbeard Pirates. He managed to effortlessly throw an entire house at Ace from quite a distance and easily defeated every pirate he encountered in Mock Town, he also won Block A of the Corrida Colosseum Battle Royal in a matter of seconds without even getting a scratch.

He also demonstrated great physical resistance, as seen when he took a direct hit from previous user Edward Newgate’s Gura Gura no Mi as well as withstanding then-Fleet Admiral Sengoku’s shockwave in Buddha form from him without taking much damage.

Despite his large figure, Burgess is very fast, as he was able to reach Luffy’s location in a very short amount of time. Based on his attempt on Luffy’s life for the Gomu Gomu no Mi and his conversation with Sabo, he is also able to steal the Devil Fruit abilities of others. The procedure for this is still unknown.

6. King

Crew: Beasts Pirates

King was able to withstand several heavy blows from Marco as he exited without much apparent damage, he also proved his combat skills by showing great agility and speed against Zoro, who he actually overwhelmingly overwhelmed. attacks, sending him almost permanently out of the skull so away from the war, and he demonstrates this with his ability to cover a great distance in an instant. True to his epithet “King the Fire”, King is able to create flames.

As one of the last representatives of the Lunarian people, King indeed has the ability to create fire with his body. He uses this skill, in particular, to increase his melee attack power, by giving a fiery punch for example or by firing projectiles, as he did in his pteranodon form, even being able to create powerful and wide fire attacks, taking the form of dragons.

5. Portgas D. Ace

Crew: Whitebeard Pirates

Ace left his native village at 17, in accordance with a decision made with Sabo. His adopted younger brother Luffy was never able to beat him, despite the fact that the latter already possessed the power of his Devil Fruit. Ace and Luffy did most of their training alone, but they were partly trained by Vice Admiral Garp, their grandfather, and partly by Captain Naguri in the anime version of the manga.

They were also both raised in the town of Fuchsia in East Blue by Dadan, a “friend” of the Vice Admiral. Another fact that reveals Ace’s strength is his ability to take punches from Marshall D. Teach despite losing his Devil Fruit effect, and being able to immediately react accordingly, such as the notes Van Augur.

Ace also carries a knife with him. Ace has excellent stamina. Indeed, when he was just a rookie, he managed to fight against Jinbe for 5 days and 5 nights in a row. Their duel ended in a draw. He therefore already matched Jinbe’s level and that of a Shichibukai even before joining Whitebeard’s crew. Shortly before this clash, he was invited to Shichibukai status as a spot was vacant.

4. Kozuki Oden

Crew: Whitebeard Pirates

As daimyo of Kuri, Oden had great power and influence over the region before his death. Being a former division commander of the Whitebeard Pirates, and a former member of the Roger Pirates, Oden was regarded as a tremendously powerful pirate who was highly respected and well liked by both crews.

His influence even extends to the mink tribesmen in Zou, with the leaders Inuarashi and Nekomamushi as members of the Nine Red Scabbards. Also, the rest of the mink tribe has shown enough respect and loyalty towards the Kozuki family that they were all willing to die rather than allow one of Oden’s vassals to be captured even long after Oden was dead.

3. Charlotte Katakuri

Crew: Big Mom Pirates

Charlotte Katakuri is Big Mom’s second child as well as the Minister of Flour and one of the three Sweets Generals; a bounty of 1,057,000,000 Berries hangs over his head. According to Brulee, not only has he never been defeated but he has never even been knocked down.

He has a very wide mouth full of fangs that he always keeps hidden by a scarf and that he only discovers when he has to eat: in these moments he isolates himself completely, killing anyone who sees him even if only by mistake.

Cold and solitary, in public he shows a very calm and refined attitude while in private he reveals himself as greedy without any restraint as much as Big Mom; despite this, he has a great sense of loyalty and honor towards opponents he deems worthy of merit.

2. Benn Beckman

Crew: Red Hair Pirates

Being the first officer of the Red Hair Pirates, Benn Beckman has authority over the rest of the crew except for Shanks. As revealed by the author, Beckman boasts the highest IQ in East Blue. Being the highest ranking officer in the crew of one of the Four Emperors, Beckman is probably one of the most capable fighters in the entire series.

At the Battle of Marineford, Admiral Kizaru chose not to fight him after being targeted by his rifle. Twelve years ago, Beckman was able to single-handedly defeat all of the bandit Higuma’s subordinates. After that, he recommended that she bring a war fleet if she wanted to fight him and his crew. Beckman possesses great vision and reflexes, to the point that he can easily find Borsalino at the Battle of Marineford.

1. Marco

Crew: Whitebeard Pirates

As the commander of the first division of the Whitebeard Pirates, Marco had authority over lower-ranking subordinates. He was one of the few men unaffected by the Haki released by Pirate Emperor Shanks. It is known that he is one of the oldest members of the crew, having been involved since the days of Gol D. Roger, spending at least 28 years by Whitebeard’s side.

He was probably the strongest member of his crew (except for Whitebeard himself), as indicated by his position as the Commander of the first division. Marco has been able to try to put up a fight with Kizaru, Aokiji and Akainu (three Marine admirals). Another indication of Marco’s strength is that he is considered by the Five Elders to be one of the few people capable of defeating Blackbeard.
