The Yonko are the 4 most notorious and most powerful pirate captains in the world. Collectively, these 4 Pirates control the entire New World. They’re remarkably powerful.
I’ve made a list of 11 Character in One Piece Characters who are just as Strong, or maybe even stronger than the Yonko.
Fujitora is supposed to be one of the strongest fighters within the whole world Government structure, as an admiral is regarded as the “Greatest Military Power.”
His Devil Fruit grants him the ability to manipulate gravity around a chosen location at will by sending gravitational forces.
Jack, attacked the Marine escort in an attempt to retrieve Doflamingo. Though he sank two of the Marine ships, Jack was ultimately defeated.
Kuzan is very powerful, as being an admiral grants him the title of the strongest individual fighter within the World Government and Marines.
This was verified by the Gorosei calling him an ‘enormous power’ while discussing his connection with the Blackbeard Pirates.
Rayleigh is remarkably powerful, easily one of the strongest characters introduced. Shakuyaku vouches for his strength by stating that he is “100 times stronger than all of you boys”, indicating to the Eleven Supernovas.
Kizaru even declared that if the Marines were to make an honest effort at capturing Rayleigh, they would need to do severe preparation, further explaining his great strength.
He is also a tremendously powerful and skilled swordsman, though he claimed to have degraded in skill slightly from his younger and healthier days.
Kong is the Commander in Chief of the Marines and works directly for the Gorosei. He was once the Fleet Admiral of the Marines. Kong must’ve been mighty, and he’s probably Yonko level.
Sengoku is a Mythical Zoan kind devil fruit user, which enables him to turn into a Buddha and create Shockwaves. He even overwhelmed Blackbeard at Marineford. Sengoku is one of the powerful characters in the whole series.
Sengoku is also a great strategist as he planned all the counterattacks against Whitebeard Pirates.
As seen in Sabaody Archipelago, the small presence of just a particular admiral was sufficient to cause a fear on the island and make the whole population escape from the island, including the Eleven Supernovas.
He holds one of the strongest Devil Fruits in One Piece history. He has a Logia type Devil Fruit called Pika Pika no Mi.
Mihawk is the single greatest swordsman existing in the world, proven by his perfect mastery of swordsmanship.
He was a rival to one of the Yonko in the world, Shanks. However, Mihawk lost interest in him after Shanks lost his left arm.
4. Monkey D. Garp
Garp is recognized as the strongest marine in the World, and the only man who cornered Gol D. Roger many times. His rivals admired him. Little of what he can do was shown during his “fight” against Don Chinjao in which he defeats him with only one punch.
It was exposed that he was offered the rank of admiral more than once, but regularly refused the promotion.
Sakazuki’s presence alone was sufficient to deter the Blackbeard Pirates from performing a trade with the Marines for a Marine Battleship, and efficiently scared the Blackbeard Pirates off the island they were briefly inhabiting.
Gorosei means “Five Elderly Stars.” They are the heads of the World Government and have control over Cipher Pol, Marines and also the Shichibukai system. Nothing is known about them, but they must be very powerful.
Till now, none of their names have been shown, and it is unknown how they became the leaders of the WG or how long they have been controlling it.
1. Monkey D. Dragon
He is the leader of the Revolutionary Army, and one of the most influential characters in the series.
This only speaks volumes about Dragon’s real power. When Sengoku told every one of his relationship with Luffy, most people were shocked, including Moriah of the Shichibukai and the Whitebeard Pirates.
