Welcome back guys, in this list we will see the top 7 One Piece Characters Who Can Defeat A Yonkō. Few pirates may achieve this so I chose to do a list from all the characters around the World of One Piece just from the anime.
In the One Piece anime, we know of 5 with the status of Yonkō but there are 4 at a time. Whitebeard was a Yonko but died during the Paramount War in Marineford after enduring 267 sword wounds, 152 bullet shots and 46 cannon balls whilst receiving 0 scars on his back. That is the raw power of a Yonko. The other 4 that are present are Big Mom, Kaido, Blackbeard and Shanks.
As the main protagonist of the One Piece, he is meant to do great, overcome obstacles and grow exponentially each time. He is going to face 3 Yonkō with what has happened in the story so far, he has unfinished business with Big Mom, he wants control over Fishman Island. Having Jack being defeated by Zunisha, Yonkō Kaido holds a grudge against the Mink Tribe and the Straw Hat crew. Las but not least Monkey D. Luffy has to face Blackbeard and avenge his late brother Portgas D. Ace.
But let’s not rush to conclusions he first needs to face Big Mom in the Whole Cake Island Arc. Big Mom is one tough cookie. Her best attack is to steal lifespan and it is deadly as she took 40 years away from her own sons Charlotte Opera and Charlotte Moscato whilst craving for croquembouche. Soul-Pocus is its name, it comes with one weakness, if the opponent fears death even for a second, she can use this to take all his lifespan and die, this were Luffy has the upper hand as he doesn’t care about fearing death and we have seen it couple of times like for instance back in Loguetown.
As I said before, her weakness is Zoro’s strong point as he has no conception of fearing death either. Remember back when he met Bartolomeo Kuma? He had multiple injuries, had suffered from other injuries inflicted by Oars and Ryuma prior meeting Kuma and he accepted to take all Luffy’s injuries whilst Kuma told him he will die upon receiving them.
He just took it and left faith to decide. He is resilient, every time he falls, he gets up stronger and doesn’t back down a good fight. Many debate who is stronger Zoro or Luffy as both got stronger than ever but we must wait and see what Zoro will offer us soon.
Zoro’s best chance to defeat a Yonkō is against Blackbeard. Now, Blackbeard owns 2 devil fruits, the Yami Yami no Mi and the Gura Gura no Mi. The Yami Yami no Mi is a special Devil Fruit that it allows the user to nullify the Devil Fruit of the opponent once touched. It also can be used to suck the opponent’s devil fruit making the opponent sucked up until the user can grab him. These two attacks together are devastating but Zoro didn’t eat one so he has the upper hand, adding his attacks on to that too makes him stronger as Blackbeard after eating the yami yami no mi feels the pain by direct attacks more than the average human.
But then comes his other power Gura Gura no Mi, the strongest paramecia devil fruit which can destroy the world. It allows the user to create vibrations in the air. In the Marineford War Whitebeard brought a Tsunami by this power and destroying Marineford with it. If Zoro and Sanji got together to fight Blackbeard they will have a greater chance in winning.
One of the best battles in my opinion would be Zoro vs Kaido. It’s just my fantasy to see them both head to head, having the fight of the century. It would be nice to see Zoro win against Kaido but with his abilities so far, it seems a very long shot we still have to see how developed Zoro has become.
Monkey D. Dragon
Little is known about Monkey D. Dragon but his name is very powerful in the One Piece story. He is the head of the organisation called The Revolutionary Army aiming on dethroning The World Government and create their own system. His name is so powerful that his epithet is The World’s Most Dangerous Criminal. Blackbeard recently destroyed their base at Baltigo.
Monkey D. Dragon might have a faceoff with Blackbeard, Dragon has spies all over the world and known exactly what his son has gone through, by Blackbeard declaring war with the Revolutionary Army, it would be a good guess if they are going to fight against each other. Who will win is questionable as we yet have to see Dragon’s abilities but seeing Sabo the No 2. In the organisation beating up so easily Jesus Burgess the Captain of the First Ship of Blackbeard Pirates, they might have the chance to defeat Blackbeard.
The Fleet Admiral Sakazuki is one of the strongest characters in One Piece with his devil fruit power Magu Magu no Mi which allows him to control, create and transform into magma, makes one difficult opponent. He has already lost when he got his face smashed to the ground by Whitebeard in Marineford but that doesn’t mean anything.
He has a fair chance against Big Mom since he doesn’t fear death, he is too stubborn to allow fear in his heart, he is very destructive and no one interferes with his Justice. With his Dai Funka (Great Eruption) technique throwing meteors to his opponents, having his hands turn into lava and give u punch like an oversized rocket.
Meteor Volcano, another attack of his is like viewing a volcano erupt. Sakazuki throws magma punches into the air and then they rain down from the sky in form of a lava meteor causing huge damage on a large area.
His deadliest close combat attack is Hellhound. In the anime Hellhound is an attack that allows the user to punch and pierce the body making a hole and then lava shoots inside the opponent’s body making him critically injured or dead. This attack was performed on Whitebeard hence his hole in his chest and all the sizzling fire around the hole. Thus, this make him a great contender against Big Mom.
The next two are as a bonus they are organizations not just a character.
This is an Underworld mercenary force ruled by Vinsmoke Judge, the biological father of Sanji. He also commands the Germa 66 military brunch of Germa Kingdom. Germa 66 was tied in the involvement in the Conquest of Four Nations, which culminated in assassinating the Four Kings of North Blue.
Recently, they are trying to align forces with Big Mom by having a political marriage of the third son of Vinsmoke Judge, Sanji with Charlotte Pudding the 35th daughter of Big Mom. If Sanji and Pudding manage to have the wedding, they will have a powerful alliance that most probably it would have aligned together for one reason which is to attack a Yonkō.
If the alliance stick, the Yonkō I believe they would try to attack would be Shanks. It would be a great fight evil vs good style of pirates. Germa 66 known as the evilest organization and Big Mom using the excuse of discrimination against races and having them living a Utopia which in disguise uses them for her own cravings, destroying other nations, making other islanders her slaves and give her monthly candy and having her own citizens having to pay 1 month of their lifespan or else leave the country which by the way means you die as she doesn’t let anyone out of her crew.
As little is known about Shanks true ability, we can’t really tell if they manage to defeat him but as powerful as they become if they ever manage to have an alliance, it could be anybody’s win.
The Gorosei are the Highest Authority of the World Government second only to the World Nobles. They have the authority to order a Buster Call on any island deemed by the Government. They rule over the World Government, ten units of Chiper Pol, police and all marines. Gorosei means Five Elder Stars, consisting of 5 members all appear to be old except for one.
As they can order a Buster Call and have all these organizations working for them they could declare war on one of the Yonkō and guess what a Yonkō would have to face all these organizations at once. The World government and Blackbeard Pirates even though they weren’t an alliance they defeated Whitebeard a former Yonkō.
I forgot to mention Garp. Count him in!
This is my list of the top characters that have a chance in defeating a Yonkō. I know there might be more but that will have to wait for another time, sorry for the long read, hope you enjoyed it and see you on the next one 😊
One Piece Creator Hints Strawhats Crew Will Have 11 Members
In today’s post, I will try to waken up your imagination and investigating chain of thought. We will be trying to find out hints and Oda’s foreshadowing pieces of the puzzle to try to guess what will happen next.
- Jinbei joining the crew
Well, this is obvious that Jinbei is destined to join the crew. He discussed with King Neptune 2 main topics, number 1 he wants to disassociate himself and the Fishman Island from Big Mom and number 2 after he accomplishes that he will be joining Strawhats crew. If he manages to remain alive that is still a question to be answered but he has got to make it out alive and join Luffy and the others.
- Number 11
There are 3 clues that this picture give us that another pirate will join the Strawhats. The clock is set to 11:05, just underneath it there is 722, if you add 7 + 2 + 2 = 11 and the last clue on top of the cake there are just 2 candles. If Oda wanted candles on the cake to signify 20 years he could make the flames on 2 and 0 but instead he decided to place just 2 candles making another clue of 11. What does this mean? Will there be another member to join? Who will it be?
- Sir Henry Morgan
Now this might seem just another pirate from our real life. I am going to tell you some of what Sir Henry Morgan’s description and you can decide for yourself who it might most resemble from the characters of One Piece. I will tell you my wild goose chase guess in the end.
Sir Henry Morgan was a privateer, landowner and after that he became Lieutenant Governor of Jamaica. He raided settlements and ships becoming wealthy and bought large plantations on the island.
He has an unknown early life, he became friends with the Governor of Jamaica, when relations between England and Spain got worse, the Governor gave a letter of marque which is a license to battle, attack and seize Spain vessels. He destroyed 2 cities and raided them taking all their wealth, destroying large Spanish Squadron and escaped. He was treated as a hero for his deeds and when the Spanish and English made a peace treaty Sir Henry Morgan was arrested and then summoned to England. He was treated as a hero from the public and high officials of the Government.
Alexandre Exquemelin, a former crewmate of Captain Morgan published a memoir detailing the tortures, gruesome acts and other offences, Captain Morgan issued a libel against the book and won but still it tarnished Morgan and affected history’s view of him. After his death, his life was romanticised and gave an inspiration for pirate themed works.
If you didn’t get the clues, I will make it easier
- Unknown past
- Raided settlements and vessels for their possessions and buying a plantation.
- Hero of a country, people haven’t got a clue to what extent his gruesome ways were.
- The Governor gave him permission to deal with the pirates and enemies of the country.
- Got arrested and then realised.
- A crewmate exposed his torturous ways.
These points seem to lead us to Crocodile, many of you will disagree and I only hold it as a very small possibility to happen but Crocodile has an unknown past, he raided Alabasta and built a casino in Alabasta, he was hailed as a hero of the nation, Nefeltari Cobra, the King of Alabasta pictured him as a hero too, he got arrested in Impel Down and then Luffy let him out and his crewmates exposed Crocodile to the villain that he is.
Will Crocodile be part of the crew? My guess is NO! but it is a fun thought to play around with even though I would like him to be part of the crew and find his place there as what is a pirate crew without a gruesome, hard man with a bloodlust thirst.
