We know that the Yonko Shanks is a very mysterious character, but do you know who is even more mysterious than him? The members of his crew, the Red Hair Pirates! In fact, we don’t know almost anything about them.
Despite this, we saw some of them during the story of One Piece; in particular, a lot of fans focused on the character of Benn Beckman, who appeared during the Marineford war as an incredibly powerful and skilled pirate. But who is he in reality?
Benn Beckman is the 1st mate of Shanks’ crew and he’s also the most trusted member along with Yasopp and Luck Roo.
Looking on the Internet, we can easily come to understand that, this character, is modeled after Johann Beckman, a german scientist and inventor; Johann has been the man who first introduced the word “technology” and, in addition, he has also been the first person to teach “technology” in a school as an academic subject.
In fact, probably due to this reference, Benn Beckman has the highest IQ of anyone in the East Blue and, for this reason, I think he’s both an inventor and a shipwright, like Usopp and Franky in the Mugiwaras.
In Marineford we saw that he has been able to fight against Shiliew Of The Rain using only his rifle, although his enemy was an able swordsman; moreover, Admiral Kizaru demonstrated to be afraid of him, but we know that Kizaru is strong enough to have fought against Marco The Phoenix, Whitebeard and to have defeated easily 4 Supernovas. So what are Benn Beckman powers?
First of all, I think that he can use both Haoshoku Haki and Busoshoku Haki, since, in my opinion, he has used Busoshoku Haki to cover his rifle against Shiliew; in addition, as the 1st mate of Red Hair Pirates and since his captain is able to use Haoshoku Haki, he’s really likely to be able to use it too.
Furthermore, since Benn Beckman is supposed to be an inventor, I think that he created something like a rifle which shoots seastone bullets and this would explain why Kizaru was afraid of him; it’s also possible that he also combines these seastone bullets with Busoshoku Haki, so that no one can protect from them.
Considering all this skills, I would consider the character of Benn Beckman as strong as an Admiral; further, we don’t have to forget that he’s also the 1st mate of a Yonko and, for this reason, he can be considered as the strongest commander ever, even stronger than Marco, Shiliew and Katakuri.

Soul King ate the Yomi Yomi no Mi, a Devil Fruit which enables its possessor to revive after their death; in fact, he really died in the period, and his soul spent a full year to find its body so that it decomposed.
Brook is nearly immortal since his body doesn’t require food or water, he isn’t concerned by the flowing of time, so Brook can’t get older and, for this logic, he can’t reach an age in which he should be assumed to die.

Age can’t kill her but a person can. That’s why the world government cares about her.There is a big chance that they are using Bonney’s abilities.
A word Immortal doesn’t fit her, but age can’t kill her so, she deserves a place on this list.
Basil Hawkins’ Devil Fruit allows him to redirect any instances of physical damage inflicted upon him to another person or persons. Kizaru killed Hawkins 10 dolls. That means Kizaru killed him 10 times, But he still survived. With 100+ Dolls he will be nearly immortal.
