The protagonists of the One Pieceseries, from left to right and front to back: Nami, Monkey D. Luffy, Tony Tony Chopper, Roronoa Zoro, Sanji, Franky, Usopp, Nico Robin, Brook, Jimbei

The One Piecemanga and anime feature an extensive cast of characters created by Eiichiro Oda. The series takes place in a fictional universe where vast numbers of pirates, soldiers, revolutionaries, and other adventurers fight each other, using various superhuman and supernatural abilities. The majority of the characters are human, but the cast also includes dwarfs, giants, mermen and mermaids, fishmen,[a] sky people, and minks, and many others. Many of the characters possess supernatural abilities gained by eating "Devil Fruits". The series' storyline follows the adventures of a group of pirates as they search for the "One Piece" treasure.

Monkey D. Luffy is the series' main protagonist, a young pirate who wishes to succeed Gol D. Roger, the deceased King of the Pirates, by finding his treasure, the "One Piece". Throughout the series, Luffy gathers himself a diverse crew, named the Straw Hat Pirates, including: the three-sword-wielding combatant Roronoa Zoro; the thief and navigator Nami; the cowardly marksman and inventor Usopp; the cook and martial artist Sanji; the anthropomorphic reindeer and doctor Tony Tony Chopper; the archaeologist Nico Robin; the cyborg shipwright Franky; the living skeleton musician Brook; and the fish-man helmsman Jimbei. Together they sail the seas in pursuit of their dreams, encountering other pirates, bounty hunters, criminal organizations, revolutionaries, secret agents and soldiers of the corrupt World Government, and various other friends and foes.

Creation and conception[edit]

Several characters have been stated to be based on actual people such as: Eustass Kid (Eustace the Monk and William Kidd), X. Drake (Sir Francis Drake), Basil Hawkins (Basil Ringrose and John Hawkins), Capone Bege (Al Capone and William Le Sauvage), Jewelry Bonney (Anne Bonny), Urouge (Aruj), and Scratchmen Apoo (Chui A-poo).[ch. 508] The cross dresser Emporio Ivankov is based on Dr. Frank N. Furter and Norio Imamura. Norio had asked Oda to draw more okama (homosexual) characters and became Ivankov's first voice actor.[ch. 570]

Oda had created Helmeppo before he created Captain Morgan, Helmeppo's father. Oda originally named Morgan after "Chop", with the character's full title being "Naval Captain Chop" or "Sailor Chop". "Sailor" in Japanese is suihei (水兵), and "Suihei Chop" is a fighting technique used by Giant Baba, a Japanese wrestler. He created several versions of Morgan before settling on the final design. After an editor told him that Morgan, in Oda's words, "looked lame", he changed the design to its final style.[vol. 1:p. 144 (en)]

Straw Hat Pirates[edit]

The protagonists of the One Piece series are all the members of the Straw Hat Pirates (麦わらの一味, Mugiwara no Ichimi), a crew of ten pirates captained by Monkey D. Luffy. The crew's number increases throughout the series, as Luffy recruits new members. Once Usopp joins the Straw Hat Pirates, they gain their own ship, the Going Merry, which is later destroyed and replaced by a larger and more powerful vessel, the Thousand Sunny created by their shipwright Franky. Two years later, the Straw Hats gain a new fleet, called the Straw Hat Grand Fleet, consisting of 5,640 pirates from seven different crews; Luffy objects to the idea of being a fleet commander, and organizes his new army in a way that they may act independently, but when one crew is in trouble, the others must do what they can to help them.

Monkey D. Luffy[edit]

Main article: Monkey D. Luffy

Monkey D. Luffy (モンキー・D・ルフィ, Monkī Dī Rufi) is the primary protagonist of the One Piece series. At age seven, he admires and tries to join the pirates of the "Red Haired" Shanks. Ridiculed and rejected, he inadvertently eats their treasure, the Paramecia-type Gum-Gum Fruit (ゴムゴムの実, Gomu Gomu no Mi), which gives his body the properties of rubber. His reckless efforts ultimately lead him into grave peril causing Shanks to lose an arm while rescuing him. After this, Luffy gives up on joining Shanks, resolving instead to start a crew of his own and become King of the Pirates.[ch. 1] Displeased by Shanks spoiling his grandson, Garp takes Luffy to be raised by Curly Dadan and her mountain bandits, who he strong-arms into taking him in. During Luffy's time there, he becomes a sworn brother with Ace, Garp's other ward, and Sabo, a local runaway noble.[ch. 582–589]

Ten years later, and still wearing Shanks' treasured head covering, Luffy forms and captains his own pirate crew called The Straw Hat Pirates and sets sail for the Grand Line, quickly gaining infamy as "Straw Hat" Luffy (麦わらのルフィ, Mugiwara no Rufi).[ch. 2, 7, 96, 98] Eventually, after his strength proves insufficient to save Ace from execution, he spends two years on a secluded island, learning the use of the three colors of Haki as well as his rubber ability's fourth Gear from Silvers Rayleigh, before heading to the New World.[ch. 590–602] Due to his infamy, he is one of the pirates who are known as "The Worst Generation".

Luffy is voiced by Mayumi Tanaka in the anime series.[1] In the 4Kids Entertainment English adaptation, he is voiced by Erica Schroeder.[2] In the Funimation Entertainment English adaptation, his voice is supplied by Colleen Clinkenbeard.[3]

Roronoa Zoro [edit]

Main article: Roronoa Zoro

Roronoa Zoro (ロロノア・ゾロ) is a swordsman who uses up to three swords simultaneously, holding one in each hand and a third in his mouth.[ch. 3, 5, 28] To fulfill a promise to Kuina, his deceased childhood friend and rival, he aims to defeat "Hawk Eye" Mihawk and become the world's greatest swordsman.[ch. 5, 50] Traveling the seas in search of Mihawk and making a living as a bounty hunter, he becomes infamously known as "Pirate Hunter" Zoro (海賊狩りのゾロ, Kaizoku-Gari no Zoro).

Eventually, he comes into conflict with Helmeppo, the spoiled son of a navy officer. To prevent the harm of innocent civilians, Zoro allows himself to be incarcerated temporarily, while Helmeppo plots to have him killed. Zoro is saved from execution by Luffy in exchange for becoming his first crewman. At that point, Zoro makes it clear that he would turn on his captain if he ever stepped between him and his dream.[ch. 2–6] However, Zoro grows fond of his crew and after several defeats in their defense, his priorities change and he convinces Mihawk to take him on as a student.[ch. 51f., 485, 597] He is known for his awful sense of direction and constantly gets lost when traveling.

Main article: Nami (One Piece)

Adopted and raised by navy seaman turned tangerine farmer Belle-Mère, Nami (ナミ) witness their mother being murdered by the infamous Arlong, whose pirate gang occupies their island and extracts tribute from the population. Striking a deal with him, Nami, still a child, but already an accomplished cartographer who dreams of drawing a complete map of the world, joins the pirates, hoping to buy freedom for her village eventually. Growing up as a pirate-hating pirate drawing maps for Arlong and stealing treasure from other pirates, Nami becomes an excellent burglar, pickpocket, and navigator with an exceptional ability to forecast weather.[ch. 77, 95, 130] After Arlong betrays her, and he and his gang are defeated by the Straw Hat Pirates, Nami joins them in pursuit of her dream and acquires infamy herself as "Cat Burglar" Nami (泥棒猫のナミ, Dorobō Neko no Nami).[ch. 94f., 435]

During his early childhood, Usopp (ウソップ, Usoppu) is abandoned by his father, Yasopp, who leaves to join the Red-Haired Pirates. As his mother, Bachina, falls ill, Usopp starts telling tall tales, expressing his hope that his father will return and take them out to sea. Even after his mother dies, Usopp does not blame his father for leaving. Despite his cowardly disposition, he strives to become a great pirate.[ch. 25, 41]

Usopp is recognizable for his long nose, a reference to the fact that he tends to lie a lot. He is a gifted inventor, painter, and sculptor.[ch. 42, 106, 190] In combat, he relies primarily on slingshots to fire various kinds of ammunition with great precision in coordination with a set of lies and other weapons giving him a unique fighting style named "The Usopp Arsenal".[ch. 332] To help the Straw Hats rescue Nico Robin, he achieves notoriety under his alter-ego "Sniper King, the King of Snipers" (狙撃の王様そげキング, Sogeki no Ō-sama Sogekingu), a hero sniper wearing a golden mask and cape. Eventually, after helping the Straw Hats liberate Dressrosa from Don Quixote Doflamingo's rule, he becomes infamous as "God" Usopp.[ch. 435]

In the anime series, his voice actor is Kappei Yamaguchi.[1]Jason Griffith and Sonny Strait provide his voice in the 4Kids and Funimation English adaptations, respectively.[3][7]

Sanji [edit]

Born as a prince of Germa Kingdom, Vinsmoke Sanji (ヴィンスモーク・サンジ, Vinsumōku Sanji) is routinely ridiculed by his genetically enhanced siblings and is locked away by his father Judge for being a disgrace. With help from his sister Reiju, he escapes and flees Germa, a floating kingdom composed of several ships, after it enters the East Blue and his father permits it.

While serving as an apprentice cook on a passenger ship, nine-year-old Sanji stands up to a boarding party of pirates led by the infamous "Red Foot" Zeff. During the encounter, Sanji is swept into the sea by a massive wave. Zeff jumps in after him because of their common dream of finding the All Blue (オールブルー, Ōru Burū), a legendary area where the East, West, North, and South Blue seas meet, containing every kind of fish in the world. While castaways together, the pirate saves Sanji's life yet again by giving him all of their food. After their eventual rescue, Sanji stays with Zeff for several years and helps him build a floating restaurant, the Baratie (バラティエ). Zeff in turn makes him a first-rate cook and teaches him his kick-based fighting style.[ch. 56–59] Mirroring Zeff, Sanji will never refuse a starving person a meal, and he uses only his legs when fighting to protect the hands he needs for cooking.[ch. 48, 370] He has a weakness for women and makes it a principle never to harm one, even if it means his death.[ch. 403]

Eventually, he becomes infamous as "Black Leg" Sanji (黒脚のサンジ, Kuro Ashi no Sanji).[ch. 435] While training for a period of two years in Emporio Ivankov's Kamabakka Queendom (カマバッカ王国, Kamabakka Ōkoku), he develops the Sky Walk (, Sukai Wōku), a variant of the Six Powers (六式, Rokushiki) technique Moonwalk (月歩, Geppo), which allows him to essentially run through air.[ch. 635] Sanji receives his own Raid Suit from his family that grants him the ability to turn invisible.[ch. 903]

Sanji's standard appearance is wearing a well-fitting black suit with a skinny black tie. His hair always covers one of his eyes and he is usually smoking a cigarette.

In the Japanese no 1 anime television series, he is voiced by Hiroaki Hirata.[8] In the 4Kids English adaptation, he is voiced by David Moo.[9] In the Funimation English adaptation, his voice is supplied by Eric Vale.[3]

Tony Tony Chopper[edit]

Tony Tony Chopper (トニートニー・チョッパー, Tonī Tonī Choppā) is a doctor and a blue-nosed reindeer. The power of the Zoan-type Human-Human Fruit (ヒトヒトの実, Hito Hito no Mi) provides him with the ability to transform into a full-sized reindeer or a reindeer-human hybrid.[ch. 140] A self-developed drug he calls Rumble Ball (ランブル・ボール, Ranburu Bōru) enables him to perform even more transformations for three minutes.[ch. 149] With help from Caesar Clown, Chopper can last in his transformations for about 30 minutes.[ch. 1014]

Rejected by his herd because of his blue nose and eating the Devil Fruit, Chopper is rescued by Drum Island's quack doctor Doctor Hiriluk. While developing a potion to create cherry blossoms when in contact with snow, Chopper is heartbroken when Hiriluk falls ill with a deadly disease. After Hiriluk's death, Doctor Kureha takes him in as his mentor. After the Straw Hats arrive at Drum Island and take Chopper with them, Kureha uses Hiriluk's potion to turn the snowy sky into cherry blossoms, fulfilling Hiriluk's life mission. When complimented, Chopper acts flustered and sometimes yells at the person who complimented him to stop trying to make him happy.[ch. 140] A running gag within the series is when other characters mistake him as a Tanuki, and he angrily corrects them, pointing out that he is a Tonakai (Japanese for "Reindeer").

His voice actress is Ikue Ōtani.[10] Kazue Ikura voiced Tony Tony Chopper for episodes 254–263.[11] In the 4Kids English adaptation, his voice is supplied by Lisa Ortiz in his brain and walk point and Brian Maillard in his heavy point.[12] In the Funimation dub, Tony Tony Chopper is voiced by Brina Palencia.[13][14]

When creating Chopper, Oda wanted a mascot who is both cute and very weak.[15] An IGN review of the manga praised Chopper's character as one of the best in the series and said that he was able to be both touching and funny.[16] With Chopper's back story, Oda wanted to illustrate that one need not be blood-related to be considered family.[17]

Nico Robin[edit]

Main article: Nico Robin

Being raised in Ohara (オハラ), home of the world's oldest and largest library, Nico Robin (ニコ・ロビン, Niko Robin) becomes an archaeologist at the age of eight.[ch. 218,391f.] At some point she gains the power of the Paramecia-type Flower-Flower Fruit (ハナハナの実, Hana Hana no Mi), which allows her to have temporary copies of parts of her body, including her eyes and ears, which spring up on surfaces near her.[ch. 170] Behind her teachers' backs, she acquires from them the outlawed knowledge of how to translate the ancient stones called Poneglyphs (, Pōnegurifu, alt. Poneglyphs), which are scattered around the world. She comes to share their goal of finding the elusive Real Ponegliff (, Rio Pōnegurifu), which is said to tell the world's lost history.[ch. 218] However, the World Government finds out about these efforts and sends a battlefleet to stop them. Only Robin escapes the devastating attack that claims the lives of the island's entire population, including that of her mother.[ch. 218, 395]

Called "Devil Child" (悪魔の子, Akuma no Ko), traumatized, and with a bounty on her head, Robin lives a life on the run, unable to trust anyone.[ch. 218] To survive, she cooperates with various pirates and other outlaws. She eventually joins Sir Crocodile's Baroque Works group, using the codename "Ms. All-Sunday" (ミス・オールサンデー, Misu Ōrusandē)[ch. 398] and becomes their vice-president.[ch. 218] After Baroque Works falls apart, with nowhere else to go, she tags along with the Straw Hat Pirates[ch. 218] and grows so fond of them that she gives herself up to the Government in order to save them. After they discover her real reason for leaving, the Strawhat Pirates declare open war against the Government to get her back. She realizes that she has finally found people who will never sell her out and becomes part of the crew.[ch. 398] Two years later, Robin further hones her Devil Fruit powers to the point she can create a full-bodied duplicate of herself.

In the anime television series adaptation of the manga, Robin's voice actress is Yuriko Yamaguchi.[18] In the 4Kids English adaptation, her Baroque Works codename was changed to Miss Sunday and she is voiced by Veronica Taylor.[19] In the Funimation English adaptation, her voice is supplied by Stephanie Young.[20]

Franky [edit]

The son of pirate parents who abandon him at age nine, Cutty Flam (カティ・フラム, Kati Furamu), nicknamed Franky (フランキー, Furankī), is taken in as an apprentice by shipwright Tom, who built Pirate King Gol D Roger's ship Oro Jackson and also secretly holds the plans for a devastating ancient weapon.[ch. 344, 354, 427] Franky's recklessness eventually provides an opportunity for World Government agents seeking these plans.[ch. 356] Attempting to rescue his master, Franky suffers severe injuries and only survives by rebuilding parts of his body using pieces of scrap metal, turning himself into a cola-powered cyborg with strength.[ch. 336, 339, 352, 357f.] After gaining notoriety as "Cyborg" Franky (サイボーグ フランキー, Saibōgu Furankī), and to fulfill his dream of sailing a ship he built around the world, he constructs the Thousand Sunny, a brigantine-rigged sloop-of-war, for the Straw Hat Pirates and joins the crew.[ch. 435–437]

In the anime television series, his voice actor is Kazuki Yao.[21]Patrick Seitz provides his voice in the Funimation English adaptation.[22]

Brook [edit]

Already a pirate before the time of Roger, "Humming" Brook (ブルック, Burukku) first enters the Grand Line as a member of the music-themed Rumbar Pirates. Leaving their pet the infant whale Laboon (ラブーン, Rabūn) at Reverse Mountain, they promise to return after sailing around the world.[ch. 487] After losing their captain, "Calico" Yorki (キャラコのヨーキ, Kyarako no Yōki), Brook took over the crew as the new captain. Time later, they are annihilated, but the power of the Paramecia-type Revive-Revive Fruit (ヨミヨミの実, Yomi Yomi no Mi) allows "Dead Bones" Brook to rise again and live a second life as a skeleton.[ch. 443] Fifty years later, Brook's goal is still to fulfill his late crew's promise, and to that end he joins the Straw Hat Pirates.[ch. 459]

He is an excellent musician, who says that he can play any instrument, although he is usually seen playing the violin.[ch. 486] Brook can even influence people with his music to the point of making them fall asleep.[ch. 454] While separated from the other Straw Hats, and incognito as "Soul King" Brook, he gains world fame, filling concert halls with fans.[ch. 600] He is also a skilled fencer who uses a shikomizue (a Japanese cane sword) in battle.[ch. 454] His reduced weight allows him to jump extraordinarily high and to run across water.[ch. 443, 493] Eventually, Brook learns how to use his Devil Fruit ability to leave his skeleton body and explore his surroundings as a disembodied soul.[ch. 629]

The idea of a skeleton musician was first conceived by Oda in 2000, about the time of Laboon's introduction and more than half a decade before the first appearance of Brook.[23]

He is voiced by Chō.[24]Ian Sinclair provides his voice in the Funimation English adaptation.


Jimbei (ジンベエ, Jinbē) is a yakuza-esque whale shark-type fish-man.[ch. 528] A master of Fish-Man Karate (魚人空手, Gyojin Karate), he is capable of manipulating ater as if it were a tangible cloth.[ch. 546] Jimbei can communicate with fish, an ability more usually associated with merfolk, and enlist the help of whale sharks.[ch. 547–549] After growing up in a rough part of Fish-Man Island, Jimbei first joins the island's royal army and later the Sun Pirates; he becomes captain following the death of Fisher Tiger.[ch. 624] In exchange for the World Government granting him Warlord-status and amnesty to the Sun Pirates, kimbei eventually disbands the crew.[ch. 69] He resigns the position to side against the Government during its war with the Whitebeard Pirates, the protectors of Fish-Man Island.[ch. 557] Two years later, he enlists the help of the Straw Hat Pirates to prevent the New Fish-Man Pirates' coup d'état against Fish-Man Island's royal family. Kimbei then turns down an invitation from Luffy to join his crew, having already aligned with the Big Mom Pirates after the death of Whitebeard.[ch. 649] After cutting ties with Big Mom, he joins the Straw Hat Pirates as the crew's helmsman.[ch. 863][ch. 976]

In the Japanese anime television series, Kimbei is initially voiced by Daisuke Gōri, later by Katsuhisa Hōki.[25][26] In the Funimation English adaptation, his voice is supplied by Daniel Baugh.

His closest underlings are Chess (チェス, Chesu), who is a skilled archer, and Kuromarimo (クロマーリモ, Kuromārimo) whose fighting style revolves around throwing parts of his Afro hair-cut.

Black Cat Pirates [edit]

The Black Cat Pirates are a cat-themed crew of pirates led by their captain, Kuro, who considers them as nothing but pawns to carry out his plans and, if he so pleases, to die for him.[ch. 38]. Other members of the crew include Django, and the Meowban Brothers, Siam (シャム, Shamu) and Butchie (ブチ, Buchi).


Kuro (クロ, Kuro, lit.

In the Japanese anime television series, Kuro is voiced by Kōichi Hashimoto. In the 4Kids English adaptation, he is voiced by Gary Mack, while his voice actor in the Funimation English adaptation is Kent Williams.

Buggy's Band of Pirates [edit]

Buggy's Band of Pirates (バギー海賊団, Bagī Kaizokudan) is a circus-themed group of pirates led by Buggy the Clown, one of the Seven Warlords after the 2-year timeskip. His second in command is first mate and beast tamer Mohji (モージ, Mōji), who is usually accompanied by his pet lion Richie (リッチー, Richī).[ch. 12] Third in line is the chief of staff and acrobat Cabaji (カバジ, Kabaji).[ch. 15] Following Buggy's escape from Impel Down, the Buggy Pirates are joined by some of his fellow escapees,[ch. 593] and from early on, the group is accompanied by Alvida (アルビダ, Arubida), who was the captain of the Alvida Pirates until she was defeated by Luffy.[ch. 50, 98]

Buggy [edit]

Buggy (バギー, Bagī) is a pirate with a preference for fighting with knives, a love of cannons, and a prominent red nose. While a junior member of the Roger Pirates, he gets hold of a devil fruit and a treasure map, intending to sell the fruit and search for the treasure, but Shanks accidentally causes him to swallow the fruit and drop the map into the sea, earning Buggy's resentment.[ch. 19, 434] Having consumed the Paramecia-type Chop-Chop Fruit (バラバラの実, Bara Bara no Mi), Buggy can separate his body into levitating parts and control them independently as long as they remain close, and at least one of his feet is on the ground. This ability also makes him immune to cutting attacks which will only separate him into parts.[ch. 526f.] Following the Roger Pirates' dissolution, Buggy becomes captain of the Buggy Pirates and achieves limited notoriety as "Buggy D. Clown" (道化のバギー, Dōke no Bagī).[ch. 9] Eventually his involvement in the first mass breakout of Impel Down, and the Paramount War, earns him a sizable following of escapees and worldwide infamy as "The Genius Jester" (千両道化, Senryō Dōke), and a seat among the Seven Warlords of the Sea.[ch. 549, 700]

In the anime series, his voice actor is Shigeru Chiba.[1] In the 4Kids English adaptation, he is voiced by David Wills.[31] In the Funimation English adaptation, his voice is supplied by Mike McFarland.[3]

Oda said that Buggy is his favorite antagonist, because of all of them he is the easiest to draw.[32] Buggy has received much praise and criticism. Carl Kimlinger of Anime News Network said that Luffy's fight with Buggy "sets the series' precedent for battles that are simultaneously tense and hilarious".[33] Jacob Hope Chapman of the same site said that seeing Buggy during the Jaya Arc was "entertaining".[34] Bryce Coulter of Mania Entertainment praised Chibi Buggy's Adventure as one of the best arcs, and Buggy for his "slap-stick humour" and "Voltron-esque combining sequence".[35] He was "disappointed" that Buggy, Smoker, and the Strawhats did not have a conflict at sea.[36] On Luffy and Buggy's alliance in Impel Down, Chris Beveridge said, "the two do make an amusing pairing as their flight through the first level goes on". He went on to say, "he never really cared for Buggy", but the Impel Down arc turned him into an "engaging character".[37] He said that he believes that Buggy is being set up as a regular character because he was "afraid he might lose him".[38] Pedro Cortes of Japanator said, "Buggy is always good for a laugh, so his bit was a welcomed respite from the oppressive marines beating down Luffy and the Whitebeard pirates."[39]

Galdino [edit]

Galdino (ギャルディーノ, Gyarudīno), better known under his Baroque Works code name "Mr. 3" (ミスター・スリー, Misutā Surī), is a sculptor with the ability of the Paramecia-type Wax-Wax Fruit (ドルドルの実, Doru Doru no Mi), which allows him to generate and control candle wax.[ch. 120, 532] Following the dissolution of the organization, he was captured and taken to Impel Down, where he joined Buggy to escape, then participated in the Marineford War, and subsequently joined Buggy's crew.

He is voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama in the Japanese version of the franchise. In the English versions of the series, he is voiced by Tom Souhrada in the 4Kids dub,[40] and by Duncan Brannan in the Funimation dub.[41]

Caribou [edit]

Caribou (カリブー, Karibū) is the former captain of the Caribou Pirates, a crew that captained alongside his younger brother Coribou (コリブー, Koribū). He has the power of the logia-type Swamp-Swamp Fruit, that allows it to transform into a muddy swamp.

After following the Straw Hat Pirates along the seabed on their journey to Fishman Island, intending to defeat them, he ended up captured by them and locked in a barrel. Although he managed to escape, he was defeated again, and after the events on the island he was captured by The Strawhat Shark (Jimbei), who brought him to the surface.

He has the power of an unnamed Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that gives him the ability to transform the parts of his body into different instruments and generate music and great vibrations with them, however, sound does not affect people if they do not hear it.

After the two year timeskip, he tried to form an alliance with Basil Hawkins and Eustass Kid. However, he was affiliated with Kaido to ambush them, Apoo being actually a subordinate of the Animal Kingdom Pirates, ending up with Hawkins joining Kaido and Apoo, and Kid being captured.

Trafalgar Law [edit]

The "Surgeon of Death" (死の外科医, Shi no Gekai), Trafalgar D. Water Law (トラファルガー・D・ワーテル・ロー, Torafarugā Dī Wāteru Rō), originates from the North Blue.[ch. 498, 508, 578, 763] Having eaten the Paramecia-type Op-Op Fruit (オペオペの実, Ope Ope no Mi), Law can, within a spherical area around himself, cut and teleport objects as well as perform body swaps.[ch. 661] He is the captain of the Heart Pirates (ハートの海賊団, Hāto no Kaizokudan), consisting of twenty-one members, including the polar bear mink and crew's navigator Bepo (ベポ, Bepo), Shachi (シャチ, Shachi), Penguin (ペンギン, Pengin), and the former slave Jean Bart (ジャンバール, Janbāru). Originally from the White Town, Flevance, he escaped with White Lead Disease and became a member of the Don Quixote Pirates. There he met Corazon, the brother of Doflamingo, and together they went on an adventure to find a cure for Law. Ultimately they found the Devil Fruit, but before they escaped, Corazon was killed by Doflamingo, leaving Law to seek out revenge. Law makes a name for himself and, following the Paramount War, joins the Seven Warlords of the Sea.[ch. 659, 673] Though he enters into an alliance with Luffy and the Straw Hats to take down Kaido, one of the Four Emperors, Law is actually hunting down Don Quixote Doflamingo.

In the anime series, his voice actor is Hiroshi Kamiya.[48] In the Funimation English adaptation, his voice actor is Matthew Mercer.

X. Drake [edit]

"Red Flag" (赤旗, Akahata) X. Drake (ディエスX・ドレーク, Diesu Dorēku, pronounced as "Diez Drake") is the captain of the Drake Pirates. He has the power of the Dragon-Dragon Fruit, Model: Allosaurus (リュウリュウの実 モデル アロサウルス, Ryū Ryū no Mi Moderu Arosaurusu), a Zoan-type Devil Fruit that that gives him the ability to transform into an Allosaurus or an Allosaurus-human hybrid. He is a former Navy rear admiral who became a pirate, but secretly continued to work for the Navy as captain of the "SWORD" division. Under this identity, Drake managed to join the Animal Kingdom Pirates as Kaido's subordinate, becoming one of their Headliners as part of the Tobi Roppo. Drake is ousted once his treachery is uncovered, and he joins Luffy's alliance to take down Kaido.

Four Emperors [edit]

The most powerful pirates in the New World are referred to as the Four Emperors (四皇, Yonkō). Initially the group consists of Shanks, Whitebeard, Kaido, and Big Mom, forming a precarious balance of power with The Seven Warlords of the Sea and the Navy Headquarters that keeps the world at peace until Blackbeard's capture of Ace. This leads to a war between the Whitebeard Pirates and the World Government, and results in Whitebeard's death.[ch. 432, 483, 576, 581] Two years later, Blackbeard is considered to have assumed Whitebeard's position.[ch. 650]

Beast Pirates [edit]

The Beast Pirates (百獣海賊団, Hyakujū Kaizokudan) are the crew led by Kaido, one of the Four Emperors.

The three men who act as Kaido's right hand are the Lead Performers, the crew's executives, also known as the Disasters. The group consists of King (キング, Kingu), who can transform into a Pteranodon or a Pteranodon-human hybrid, the cyborg Queen (クイーン, Kuīn), who can transform into a Brachiosaurus or a Brachiosaurus-human hybrid, and the giant grouper-type fishman Jack (ジャック, Jakku), who can transform into a mammoth or a mammoth-human hybrid.

Most members possess powers of the SMILE fruits created by Caesar Clown, being able to obtain the abilities of a specific animal, but having only partially a part of the animal, such as the legs, ears, or the head, protruding from any limb of the body, like the head of an animal in the stomach or in the hand, or wings in the head or the butt.

Among the crew are the three groups: The Gifters, who ate a SMILE receiving their powers; The Pleasures who ate a dud SMILE without receiving any power and with the effect of not stopping smiling; and the Waiters, who await the moment in the future of receiving a SMILE.

The crew's second-grade officers after the Lead Performers are the Headliners, mostly elite Gifters, who are responsible for leading the Waiters, Pleasures, and lower Gifters.

The strongest six of the Headliners, serving directly under the Lead Performers, are the members of the Tobi Roppo. Like the Lead Performers, the members can transform into ancient creatures. The group consists of Page One (ページワン, Pējiwan), who can transform into a Spinosaurus or a Spinosaurus-human hybrid, Ulti (うるティ, Uruti), Page One's sister who can transform into a Pachycephalosaurus or a Pachycephalosaurus-human hybrid, Sasaki (ササキ, Sasaki), who can transform into a Triceratops or a Triceratops-human hybrid and was in charge of the Armored Division before they were tamed by Tama, Black Maria (ブラックマリア, Burakkumaria), who can transform into a Rosamygale grauvogeli or a Rosamygale grauvogeli-human hybrid; and Who's-Who (フーズ・フー, Fūzu Fū), who can transform into a saber-toothed tiger or a saber-toothed tiger-human hybrid. X. Drake was formerly a member of this group.

Other Headliners include: Basil Hawkins; Sheepshead (シープスヘッド, Shīpusuheddo), who can turn his hands into sheep horns; Holdem (ホールデム, Hōrudemu), who has a variation of a lion SMILE, having on his waist the head and legs of a lion named Kamijiro (噛二郎, Kamijirō); Speed (スピード, Supīdo), who has a horse SMILE, having under her waist the body of a horse that gives her the appearance of a centaur; Dobon (ドボン), who has a hippopotamus SMILE that infused his legs to a hippopotamus' body; Ginrummy (ジンラミー, Jinramī), whose unnamed SMILE gave her black horns; Babanuki (ババヌキ), the warden of the Prisoner Mine, who has an elephant SMILE with the head of an elephant in his belly.

The Numbers are a group of artificially-produced ancient giants with animalistic traits and wearing tiger-striped loincloths that were produced on Punk Hazard as a failed experiment and were brought into the services of the Beast Pirates.

The Marys are the surveillance crew of the Animal Kingdom Pirates that consist of humans and cyborg animals who wear paper masks and transmit their information to Kaido. The lead member of the Mary is Bao Huang (Baofan, バオファン), who has a flying squirrel SMILE gives her a large flying squirrel tail protruding from her back.

There are also some samurai that serve the Animal Kingdom Pirates.

Other members of the crew include Scotch (スコッチ, Sukotchi), a cyborg who protects one of the islands of Kaido, and Scratchmen Apoo.


Kaido (カイドウ, Kaidō), also known as "Kaido, The King of the Beasts" (百獣のカイドウ, Hyakujū no Kaidō, lit. "Kaido of the Beasts"), is the Supreme Commander of the Animal Kingdom Pirates. He is one of the Four Emperors, and also a former member of the Rocks Pirates. Kaido consumed the Fish-Fish Fruit: Azure Dragon Model which enables him to transform into an Azure Dragon or a Azure Dragon-human hybrid. He has been on the verge of being executed several times in the past and has a fondness for attempting suicide, but he always ends up unscathed, being known in the world as "The Strongest Creature in the World" (最強の生物, Saikyō no Seibutsu). In the past, he faced Kozuki Oden, who was the only person capable of hurting him, leaving a scar on his chest. He was allied for years with Kurozumi Orochi to rule the Wano Country together, until Kaido betrayed Orochi, killing him, with the idea of turning his daughter Yamato into the country's new shogun.

Blackbeard Pirates [edit]

The Blackbeard Pirates (黒ひげ海賊団, Kurohige Kaizokudan) are a group of very powerful pirates led by Blackbeard. Initially, his crew consists of the marksman Van Augur (ヴァン・オーガー, Van Ōgā); Jesus Burgess (ジーザス・バージェス, Jīzasu Bājesu), the crew's helmsman who possesses immense physical strength; the exiled police officer Lafitte (ラフィット, Rafitto); and the sickly physician Doc Q (ドクQ, Doku Kyū),[ch. 234] with his equally sickly horse Stronger (ストロンガー, Sutorongā).[ch. 223]

Later, Blackbeard recruits a number of prisoners from Impel Down: the biggest giant San Juan Wolf (サンファン・ウルフ, Sanfan Urufu), whose big size comes from the ability of an as-yet-unnamed Devil Fruit; Vasco Shot (バスコ・ショット, Basuko Shotto); Catarina Devon (カタリーナ・デボン, Katarīna Debon), a woman who can turn into a Kyubi no Kitsune or a Kyubi no Kitsune-human hybrid, with the ability to transform into other people; and the former North Blue king Avalo Pizarro (アバロ・ピサロ, Abaro Pisaro), as well as the prison's deposed chief jailer Shiryu (シリュウ, Shiryū), who later gained Absalom's invisibility.[ch. 576]

After becoming one of the Four Emperors, Blackbeard has a subordinate known as Peachbeard (桃ひげ, Momohige) and allies with Aokiji.

Marshall D. Teach [edit]

Marshall D. Teach (マーシャル・D・ティーチ, Māsharu Dī Tīchi), better known as Blackbeard (黒ひげ, Kurohige), is the admiral of the Blackbeard Pirates. As a member of the Whitebeard Pirates, he killed his crewmate Thatch to get hold of the Devil Fruit he has sought for several decades, the Dark-Dark Fruit (ヤミヤミの実, Yami Yami no Mi). It grants him the ability to create and control black holes, which are represented as flowing darkness, as well as the ability to disable the Devil Fruit powers of others, as long as he is touching the person. For betraying Whitebeard's crew and the murder of his crewmate, he is pursued by Ace who eventually confronts him.[ch. 159, 440f.] After defeating Ace and turning him in to the World Government, he is appointed Crocodile's replacement as one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea, a position he promptly abuses to expand his crew with prisoners from Impel Down and resigns once he is finished. After killing Whitebeard with the help of his new crew, Blackbeard somehow adds his former captain's Devil Fruit ability to his own and manages to take Whitebeard's place as one of the Four Emperors.[ch. 486, 576f., 650]

The character is based on and named after the historical pirate Edward "Blackbeard" Teach.[ch. 474] In the Japanese anime television series, his voice actor is Akio Ōtsuka.[51] In its Funimation English adaptation, his voice was supplied by Cole Brown until his death in November 2016. In One Piece: Stampede he was voiced by Chris Rager.

Big Mom Pirates [edit]

The Big Mom Pirates (ビッグ・マム海賊団, Biggu Mamu Kaizokudan) are the crew led by the member of the Four Emperors, Charlotte Linlin.

The highest-ranking members are known as the Sweet Commanders. The group consists of Linlin's 2nd son, Katakuri (カタクリ, Katakuri), who has the power to generate mochi, Linlin's 14th daughter, Smoothie (スムージー, Sumūjī), who has the ability to squeeze any object, including living things, and Linlin's 10th son, Cracker (クラッカー, Kurakkā), who has the ability to generate biscuits. A former member of the group is Linlin's 25th child, Snack (スナック, Sunakku).

Officer positions are filled by the majority of Linlin's sons and daughters. Among those are: Linlin's 1st son, Perospero


One Piece: Every Member Of The Straw Hat Pirates, Ranked

The Straw Hat Pirates from One Piece are a tremendous group of ocean travellers. but how does each member of Luffy's crew rank?

One of the longest-running anime series of all time, One Piece tells the story of Monkey D. Luffy, who hopes to follow in the footsteps of his childhood idol, Captain "Red-Haired" Shanks, and become "King of the Pirates." To accomplish his goal, he assembles the Straw Hat Pirate crew, who eventually rises to become one of the most notorious pirates on the sea.

We're going to look at this crew and rank each member. We've already looked at the crew by terms of sheer strength, so now we are combining that with character and personality. Remember, spoilers abound and we're not counting temporary members and allies.

RELATED: One Piece: 10 Things You Should Know About Wano Country

10 Usopp

The Straw Hat pirates needed a sniper and they've got one in Usopp. He's kind of a parody of Pinocchio, even the big nose didn't give it away, he loves telling tall tales and lies, which can make it seem like he lives in his own little world. He was actually the captain of his namesake "Usopp Pirates," which mostly consisted of him and some kids telling people pirates were coming.

Eventually, he decides to become a real pirate by joining up with the Straw Hat Pirates. He can also get emotional and cowardly, not that he doesn't put his fears aside when push comes to shove. Even so, he still brings a lot to the team, being a skilled sniper, marksman, and even a bit of an engineer. One of his biggest talents is crafting and improvising weapons.

9 Jinbe

When traveling the seven seas, it probably helps to have a fish-man onboard. Formerly the second captain of the Sun Pirates, he joined the Straw Hats to honor the wishes of his late captain Fisher Tiger: peace between the fish-men and humans. He certainly has his talents: he's got willpower, discipline, is good with martial arts and controlling water, and he's even got a trident (not that we ever really see him use it.)

Personality-wise, he's been shown to be brutal in attacks, yet respectful and even fatherly to others, especially those he's allied with. Initially rejecting his first offer to join the Straw Hat Pirates, it almost seemed like he was going to be a villain at some point. In the past, he hated humans, causing him, whether directly and indirectly, to be responsible for many tragic events, but now seems to have become an atoner.

8 Franky

Not only does Franky, also known as Cutty Flam, look strong, he is also quite protective of his loved ones. This is a good thing...audiences were initially meant to think he was going to be a villain before he joined up with the Straw Hat crew.

Franky is a cyborg, which gives him enhanced superhuman strength, even allowing him to survive weapons that would kill a normal person. His body is even equipped with rockets, allowing him to attack with strong blasts, and even mundane electronics. We all can use a friend with a built-in fridge. If you think his robotics would eat up his emotions, however, it's kind of the opposite: he's shown to be strange, almost overdramatically compassionate, and he's a bit of an exhibitionist...he mostly wears a jacket and a Speedo.

RELATED: One Piece: 10 Things You Should Know About Trafalgar D. Water Law

7 Brook

This skeleton fulfills Luffy's long-desired wish for the crew to have their own musician, so you can argue that Brook provides that special touch of style to the Straw Hat crew. A Devil Fruit technically gave him the power of immortality...he can still die but his soul has to actually return to his body. Added to that, the catch is that his body can decay in the interim, explaining why he is currently a living skeleton. While the exact biology of how that works is kind of complicated, he luckily somehow managed to keep that giant afro of his.

Although he's kind of the comic relief of the gang, he's still a threat, which is pretty impressive for someone literally made up of hair and bones. The fact that he's a living skeleton and technically immortal also means that he's capable of accomplishing feats that would normally kill some of the other team members. Added to that, his "advanced" age technically makes him a veteran pirate.

6 Tony Tony Chopper

There's honestly a lot that Chopper brings to the team. Thanks to the Devil Fruit turning him into a hybrid, he spent most of his early years being excluded by other reindeer. However, after being trained by his foster-father, Dr. Hiriluk, and being somewhat self-taught, he's now the Straw Hat Crew's doctor, something he's proved pretty capable at, like with his creation of the "Rumble Ball" drug.

That said, he seems to do a lot more than just working with medicine. While he's usually seen in his Brain Point form, where he kind of functions as the crew's mascot, thanks to the Devil Fruit, he can take on various forms, like his Heavy Point, Horn Point, and Monster Point forms, each giving him different advantages.

5 Nico Robin

The archaeologist of the group, Nico Robin has had a colorful resume: she's been Miss All Sunday, the vice president of Baroque Works, a slave, a scholar, an assassin, and even a revolutionary. She's been a villain and an ally. All in all, she's been a survivor (and not just because she's the sole survivor of Ohara island,)

One of the more serious members of the crew, she actually joined after hiding on the ship and asking Luffy to accept her. While originally a bit of a suspicious character, she eventually won over most of the team.

4 Nami

Being a thief is clearly the first stepping stone that leads to becoming a pirate. Before rising to be the navigator of the Straw Hats, she surprisingly used to hate pirates, due in part to losing her foster-mother at their hands.

Her skills as a cat burglar have helped her even get the best of her crewmates. One of the smarter crewmembers, she's also good with money, managing the Straw Hats' finances and even charging fees for doing extra work. She also has one major advantage in her corner: with the help of the Clima-Tact weapon, she can virtually control the weather!

RELATED: One Piece: 5 New Powers That Zoro Will Gain In Wano Country (& 5 That He Won't)

3 Sanji

Sanji might be cool and collective, but he's a lot more perceptive than he appears. His weapon of choice is a leg-based form of martial arts. And he cooks! His policy is never to use knives or his cooking utensils...but he does know how to use them.

Also, he's technically a prince, but he's disowned his family. They've been abusive to him, but, even so, he's shown again and again to be the bigger person in his dealings with them, such as rescuing them from the Big Mom pirates. All in all, he's quite chivalrous.

2 Roronoa Zoro

With a name like Zoro, you can tell this guy is good with swords, functioning as one of the first and most dangerous members of the Straw Hate Pirates. A talented and famed swordsman, even developing his own "Santoryu" style, he used to be a bounty hunter.

In addition to his skills, he's shown to be physically strong and quite tolerant of pain. There's a reason people mistake him for the captain (and still wonder why he isn't one.) That said, he's loyal and always willing to give sage, if frank, advice.

1 Monkey D. Luffy

Now, there wouldn't even be a Straw Hat Pirate crew without Monkey D. Luffy. The crew's even named after his iconic hat, a gift from Shanks. Even beyond that, he's impressively strong and his Devil Fruit powers essentially made him into living rubber.

He might not be able to swim anymore, but all in all it seems a small price to pay. Who needs to swim when you have the Going Merry or the Thousand Sunny? Added to that, he might have also earned the title of "Fifth Emperor" by complete accident...but that kind of makes it more impressive!

One Piece: Every Straw Hat Pirate's Age, Height, And Birthday

The world of One Piece is wonderful and fanciful on the outside, with dark and mysterious undertones lurking beneath the surface. The cheery but righteous Straw Hat crew are a breath of fresh air in a world that's become used to injustice, and they can bring a smile to anyone's face.

RELATED: Manga Series We Can't Believe Are Still Ongoing (& How Long They Are)

With that said, there's a lot of questions about the Straw Hats' appearances due to Eiichiro Oda's drawing style and lack of specific details within the story about a character's age. It's almost impossible to tell how tall some characters actually are due to the wild body proportions of One Piece characters, but the data is all there somewhere.

Updated September 20, 2021 by Mark Sammut: One Piece's Straw Hats are anime and manga icons. Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, and company all have memorable designs, unique personalities, and fun powers. While some characters contribute more consistently to the story than others, each member has their share of unforgettable moments. As this grand adventure steadily approaches its closing years, the Straw Hats' roster is unlikely to expand beyond its current formation. To make each character's age, height, and birthday as easy to find as possible, the information has been streamlined into a table. Vivi has also been added because she was part of the crew for a time.

One Piece Statistics Chart

At this point in One Piece, it seems unlikely that the Straw Hats will welcome a new member into the crew, although there is always a chance that Eiichiro Oda will surprise readers. Still, the current lineup could very well be the final one; therefore, for easy access, the Straw Hats' personal information has been included in the following table.

Note: For the characters' ages and heights, the pre and post-timeskip information are provided. The first bullet point covers the former while the second point relates to the latter. Also, the height's feet and inches data have been rounded up.

11 Luffy

Monkey D. Luffy was born on May 5, which is Children's Day in Japan. Children's Day takes place during Golden Week, where children get a short vacation from school and are celebrated for their personalities and happiness. It reflects Luffy's personality perfectly since he's the most happy-go-lucky guy in all of One Piece.

RELATED: One Piece: Luffy's Best Gear Third Techniques, Ranked

As the captain of the Straw Hats, Luffy is the glue that keeps everyone together. His drive for adventure and willingness to help those who are prepared to ask for it makes Luffy an enigmatic figure that naturally attracts other pirates (or bounty hunters) to him.

10 Zoro

Roronoa Zoro is the stoic right-hand man of Luffy who always does what's best for the longevity of the Straw Hat Pirates while looking for his next great battle. Zoro has a level head compared to Luffy and is capable of making more stable decisions, which could be a product of his age since the swordsman is two years older than his captain.

Zoro is vicious in battle, arguably the most out of any Straw Hat barring perhaps Nico Robin. Dependable in most areas that do not have to do with giving directions, Zoro steps up to the plate even in the direst of situations, such as Kuma's appearance in the Thriller Bark arc.

9 Nami

Nami is the navigator and treasurer of the Straw Hats, and she has a bunch of other skills and small roles as well. Just like most of the women in One Piece, Nami is quite tall. Although only slightly older than Luffy, Nami occasionally plays the part of the mature sibling; however, this primarily comes down to the fact that she is one of the more cautious members of the Straw Hats. That said, she is pretty dangerous with her Clima-Tact.

RELATED: One Piece: The Highest Bounties In The Series, Ranked

Nami's birthday is July 3rd, making her a Cancer. Cancers are generally thought to be well versed in emotion, and Nami is possibly the most compassionate Straw Hat given the right circumstances. She can certainly be greedy and cut-throat, but when it comes to protecting the weak, she's the first to put her life on the line.

8 Usopp

Usopp is the same age as Luffy and acts similar to his captain in many ways when it comes to having fun. Usopp standout from Luffy due to his risk-aversion mentality, as the Straw Hat is well aware that he is vulnerable in battle.

Usopp's birthday is April 1st, otherwise known as April Fool's Day. This is extremely fitting considering his tendency to prank others and spin tall tales. After his sniping skills, Usopp's imagination is his strongest weapon and the Straw Hat Pirates definitely make use of it.

7 Sanji

Just by looking at Sanji, his age is probably the hardest to guess out of all the Straw Hat Pirates (the human ones at least). He goes for a more mature look in style and attitude making him appear older than he actually is. In the anime, Sanji is 21 years old after the time skip and his birthday is March 2nd.

RELATED: One Piece: All The Filler Arcs Ranked According To IMDb

Making up the Straw Hats' trinity of powerful fighters alongside Luffy and Zoro, Sanji's kicks are devastating, and he has consistently grown stronger throughout One Piece​​​​​.

6 Tony Tony Chopper

Chopper is another character who most fans probably couldn't guess his age if they tried. Chopper is actually the youngest Straw Hat, and he is occasionally treated as Such. It is not unusual for Chopper to be parented by characters such as Robin and Zoro. His birthday is December 24th, Christmas Eve which reflects the cold climate he comes from and the fact that he was originally a reindeer.

Chopper's small size and gentle appearance are an invitation for enemies to underestimate him, but he's a fierce fighter when he has to be.

5 Nico Robin

Nico Robin is the cool and collected Straw Hat with a love for "cute things". Her personality is hard to pin down until the later parts of One Piece, but she's a fan favorite for sure. When she joined the crew, Robin was quite a mysterious figure as she kept her distance from the crew. This stemmed from her tragic backstory.

Robin's birthday is February 6th, which makes her an Aquarius which are known for their honesty and imagination. This trait is best demonstrated when she sees something cute and can't help but get starry eyes and exclaim how cute something is.

4 Franky

Franky is a giant. It's clear in the series but his height and scale seem to change for comedic and dramatic effect, making it difficult to tell how tall he really is. Franky's actual height is 240cm after the time skip, putting him up there with NBA players.

RELATED: One Piece: Devil Fruit Abilities That Can Perfectly Counter Luffy

Before joining Luffy's ragtag crew of adventurers, Franky was an adult with a career and "crew" of his own. Consequently, it made sense that he was much older than the rest of the characters who formed the Straw Hats at the time.

3 Brook

Brook is ACTUALLY a giant. He appears tall, lanky, and fragile since he's all bones but it's difficult to tell what his real height is. A musician, Brook brings plenty of charm and humor to the Straw Hats' travels. Although not quite reaching Zoro or Sanji's levels, Brook is a capable fighter in his own right.

While his age is around the 90 mark, Brook died at 38 and his body has been preserved since then, albeit in skeleton form.

2 Jinbe

Jinbe is the newest addition to the Straw Hats who lived during the Golden Age of pirates and led the Sun Pirates, basically as the king of the Fishman underworld. Because of this, he's older than the other Straw Hats at 46 years old.

Jinbe's height is shown to change throughout the manga and anime for scale because if his true height was shown, he might not always fit on the screen. He's a giant Fishman with the build of a blue whale and a shark. His monstrous size hides his compassionate and gentle side. His birthday is April 2nd, which makes him an Aries, a sign known for its ambition.

1 Vivi

Nefertari Vivi was only part of the Straw Hats for a brief period, as she joined the crew during the Alabasta Saga. This whole ordeal led to the Straw Hats taking on Baroque Works, with Vivi seeking Luffy's help to free Alabasta from Crocodile's dictatorship.

Vivi left the Straw Hats straight after this arc, however, she is a crew member in spirit. As the princess of a country, Vivi can't travel the Grand Line on the Thousand Sunny with the Straw Hats, but there is no doubt that Luffy would welcome her to the crew in a heartbeat.

The Final 3 Straw Hats Will Be...

The Straw Hat Pirates are an infamous and powerful rising pirate crew that originated from the East Blue, but have various members from different areas. They are led by Monkey D. Luffy.

Despite having a small number of members, the Straw Hats are an extremely powerful crew with amazing potential, as stated by Kuzan when he first met them, eventually growing to the point of being capable of challenging Yonko-class crews like the Big Mom Pirates. Luffy’s achievements in Whole Cake Island were great enough for him to be officially titled the “Fifth Emperor of the Sea”.

So far, five of the current members are shown to have awakened their Haki. Luffy is shown to use all three types; Zoro, Sanji and Jinbe have wielded two types; whilst Usopp has recently manifested just one type (Usopp’s Kenbunshoku Haki shown in Dressrosa when he sniped Sugar).

Their current bounties total up to 3,161,000,100 Berries.
