One Piece celebrated its 24th anniversary this year and has aired more than 1050 episodes. This is a big achievement in the anime world. With so many movies and story arcs, the anime has broken many records in Japan, and there is no stopping of the anime.
With all those episodes, there are many characters that fans love and even love to make fan art for them. In this article, we will take a look at 12 fan art that fans wished were true. Netflix recently released a live-action One Piece show, which has been getting a lot of views and traction. You should definitely check it out.
Even today, Edward is one of the top anticipated characters in the anime, and he has not disappointed his fans. He had the powers of tremor-tremor fruit, and he was known as the strongest man in the world and the last pillar of the old time period.
It is sad that we did not get to see more of his actions, but for the brief time we saw him, he was totally outside himself. Invading the main base of Marines, leaving everything on the battleground to save Ace, his son.
In this picture by DoubleD67, we see him revealing the power of his devil fruit, shattering the air around him like a piece of glass.
Brook is one of those characters that bring comic fun with him on the show but don’t get it twisted, and he has a lot of epic scenes that blend in with his jokes. Before the time skip, Brook was the last person to join the group.
The main crew met him on Thriller Bark, and he stayed with them when they left. Brook has the powers of Revive-Revive fruit, and he came back to life after his first death.
He learned to use his powers more efficiently by thinking of new ways after the time skip. By learning about the true powers of his fruit, he can now use the core energy of his soul. This picture is by i-SANx. Brook is managing Big Mom’s Soul-Soul fruit, leaving his friends unconscious.
Another top character that fans of the anime are waiting to see in action is Kaido. He is the captain of Beast Pirates and is often called the Strongest Creature in the World. Kaido is among the Yonko ruling over the world.
His crew is currently occupying the Wano Kingdom. Still, there is not much info about Kaido is known yet. He has only appeared in a few scenes but had everlasting impressions in them.
One impression is him jumping from Skypiea in a suicidal attempt while telling all other methods where marines tried to kill him, but he came out alive every time. This image by Jayto91 shows his true character and even adds more to his glory.
Sanji is an original member of the group, and he joined them in the East Blue before the crew went to the grand line. He dreams of finding All Blue, so he leaves Baratie and joins the Straw Hats as a chef. He has good fighting skills.
This picture, made by Kortrex, takes us to the memorable fight with Sanji. In the Enies Lobby Arc, he was up against Jabra, who was his strongest opponent in the anime yet.
For the first time, we saw him using Disable Jambe. It was one of the best fights in the anime, and this picture will bring back some memories to the core fans.
We saw him in the climax of the Whole Cake Arc, and he has become a fan favorite. He has a berry bounty on his head and is hands down the strongest member of Big Mom Pirates, right with Big Mom.
He was a massive challenge for Luffy, and his character arc was one of the best in the anime. Luciol-2zr, a true man among men, captures the true emotions of Katakuri’s fight against Luffy.
Look at the picture, and the hand-drawn type is the best thing about this picture. With everything available today, all the tools and AI, there is something very emotional and sentimental about hand-crafted pictures.
Marshall D. Teach
Marshall D. Teach, a.k.a. Blackbeard, is one of the biggest antagonists in the anime, and he is the one character that Luffy hates the most.
Originally, he was part of Whiteboard Pirates, but he did not look like an Impactful character initially. He is seen giving blessings to Ace, a new recruit. Ace was becoming a commander of the 2nd division of the White Beard Pirates.
He was just patiently waiting to locate a certain devil fruit, and when Tatch, the fourth division commander, found it, Blackbeard stole it after murdering him. This was the darkness-darkness fruit, and Jayto91 precisely brings out how the characteristics of this fruit will look on him.
Monkey D. Luffy
Luffy is the protagonist of the whole anime and is the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, and it is natural for him to have great fan art.
This image from Kortrex takes us back to Dressrosa, where Luffy took Doflamingo and showed his Gear Fourth form for the first time.
The image is very detailed, from the sweat and blood on his face to the detailed creases on his hands. There is a subtle cage in the background made by Doflamingo, which is also given respect in the image.
Trafalgar D. Law
He is one of the twelve pirates who are regarded as the worst generation. He has formed an alliance with Straw Hats to take down Kaido. He is the doctor and captain of the Heart Pirates and is called the Surgeon of Death.
He has the powers of ope-ope fruit and can operate on anyone by creating a space.
Law has the ability to remove the heart of any being without killing them. By gaining the heart of that person, he gets additional leverage. Sakonma made this picture showcasing his Surgeon of Death title.
Roronoa is Luffy’s right-hand man and was the first member to join Luffy before he named his crew the Straw Hat Pirates. He has been with Luffy for his entire journey and is the second-strongest member on the ship.
He uses three sword styles and aims to become the strongest swordsman. In this image, Mad-AK has showcased classic Zoro before the time skip.
The details are beautiful, and the ripples on his neck and collarbone are lively. The shine in his eyes with a background of a sunset really pops the whole image and makes it stand out.
He is the anime version of a real-life Straw Hats fan. He is expressive and shows love and affection to Luffy and the whole crew. He is living the dream and is one of the captains of the Straw Hat Grand Fleet.
He’s a rookie, and he has the powers of Barrier-barrier devil fruit. He can cross his fingers and make powerful, indestructible barriers and use them in many ways.
The image is made by r-trigger, which shows him making a barrier to block an enemy attack. This fan art is well-made. It totally looks like a part of the manga.
Nico and Zoro
Zoro did not trust Nico when she joined the crew after the events of Alabasta, and he still became protective of the Baoque Works ex-agent. Zoro caught Robin after Enel was about to kill her. He fought Enel for her honor.
On the other hand, Robin has also been protective of him; she saved him from Marine Admiral Kizaru. Both of them have very similar characteristics, like calmness and seriousness in any given situation.
Kasaku from Russia made a lovely Nico and Zoro fan art; two of them are seen with each other on the ship.
Sanji and Nami
It is easy to see that Sanji is attracted to Nami, but his being a womanizer doesn’t work. He always had a soft spot for her. No matter what the situation was, Sanji would not let anyone lay a finger on her, even the crewmates.
Nami uses his attraction to advantage sometimes, but she also cares for her. MuffinMonstah from Argentina made a beautiful Nami and Sanji fan art that shows their chemistry.
