Update: As the One Piece galaxy goes into hyperdrive with the introduction of Yonko Big Mom Charlotte Linlin’s mighty Sweet Commanders, we re-look again at the highest known bounty thus far, as well as the addition of Blackbeard Teach into the bounty list!
Since setting a new standard, Writer Oda has given plenty of future bounties clues for the most renowned characters in the One Piece world. As the One piece story line goes into the climate for the current Whole Cake Island Arc of the Yonko Saga, we finally get to see the highest bounty thus far in the One Piece world, and it goes to “DogTooth” Charlotte Katakuri, second son of Big Mom Charlotte Linlin, who overtook Jack, the right-hand man of Yonko (Four Emperor) Kaido. It is over the charts, and only gives a glimpse on the bounties of the Yonkos.
The highest known bounty thus far:
- “DogTooth” Charlotte Katakuri (Big Mom Pirates / 1057 million berries)
- Jack “The Drought” (Beasts Pirates / 1000 million berries)
- Charlotte Smoothie (Big Mom Pirates / 932 million berries)
- “Thousand Arms” Charlotte Cracker (Big Mom Pirates / 860 million berries)
- “Firefist” Portgas D.Ace (Whitebeard Pirates / 550 million berries)
- “Straw Hat” Monkey D.Luffy (Straw Hat Pirates / 500 million berries)
- “Surgeon of Death” Trafalgar D. Law (Heart Pirates / 500 million berries)
- “Whitebeard Jr.” Edward Weevil (Shichibukai / 480 million berries)
- “Captain Kid” Eustass Kid ( Kid Pirates / 470 million berries)
Kaido (“Kaido of the Beasts”) – 2 to 2.5 billion berries, Yonko & Captain of the Beasts Pirates
Captains usually command a much higher bounty than even their most highest rank member.
Think Luffy and Zoro (500 million vs 320 million) as well as Eustass Kid (470 million) and Killer (200 million).
With Kaido’s right-hand man Jack coming in at 1 billion and the story seems quite a long way to go, I would say Kaido should easily be around 2 billion and upwards.
Charlotte Linlin (“Big Mom”) – 2 to 2.5 billion berries,Yonko & Captain of Big Mom Pirates
When Jack came into the picture, I have this impression Big Mom’s top general will come into play as well for the Zou Arc, especially when one of her member Pekoms is already part of the arc.
Big Mom’s son Charlotte Cracker has made his appearance with a 860 million bounty, and he is only one of the Three Sweet Commanders.
With that, we will be able to have a relatively good estimate on Big Mom’s bounty even though much isn’t known about her yet.
Update 1: Although Charlotte Smoothie came into the picture at 932 million, no change to forecast of Big Mom’s bounty until the last of her Sweet Commanders: Katakuri, makes the appearance.
Update 2: The last of the mighty sweet commander “DogTooth” Charlotte Katakuri finally made his long awaited appearance, and with a blast too! At 1 billion and 57 million Berry bounty, Charlotte Katakuri has the highest bounty in the One Piece Sea thus far. This further confirm Big Mom’s bounty class among the 2 to 2.5 billion bounty league (based on our estimation). Any other sons or daughters of Big Mom who will change our predication of Charlotte Linlin’s bounty? We definitely hope so.

Shanks (“Red-Haired Shanks”) – 2.5 to 3 billion berries, Yonko & Captain of the Red Hair Pirates
Why is Shanks ranked higher than Kaido? One estimate is that he managed to successfully block Kaido’s attack on Whitebeard (another ex-Yonko) during the Summit Battle Arc.
I doubt Kaido would just send a runner in Jack to attack one of his greatest enemy Whitebeard alone, so Kaido should have personally lead the troops.
And Shanks managed to stop him as well as arriving at the Peak Battle unscathed. This shows Red-haired Shanks to be one of the most powerful characters in the One Piece world.
This shows Red-haired Shanks to be one of the most powerful characters in the One Piece world. Not to mention he is also part of the legendary Pirate King Roger’s crew. If anyone wants to know the strength of the pirate that stands atop the One Piece sea, Shanks would be the first to witness what it takes to be the best pirate ever.
Marshall D.Teach (“Blackbeard”) – 3 to 3.5 billion berries, Yonko & Captain of the Blackbeard Pirates
The new addition to the list, can Blackbeard eventually be wanted for a bounty even higher than Luffy’s dad, Monkey D.Dragon? After taking on the Revolutionary at their base, all are currently MIA.
But one thing for sure, Blackbeard already has Whitebeard’s (the most likely pirate previously to take over Pirate King’s crown) monsterous Quake-Quake devil fruit ability, and it’s also known he has more than two powers under his belt. He also managed to previously injured fellow emperor Red-haired Shanks, not to mention his crew has 10 Titanic Captains.
Adding all these forces up together with his alliance with former marine admiral Kuzan (yes, the Aokiji who manage to beat off Shichibukai Donquixote Doflamingo with a single ice blast), it makes Blackbeard Marshall D.Teach one of the strongest pirate in the One Piece New World sea.
Monkey D. Dragon (“Dragon the Revolutionary”) – more than 3 billion berries, Leader of the Revolutionary
Father of One Piece Protagonist Monkey D.Luffy and son of Marine Hero Garp, Dragon stands on top of the Revolutionary Army that aims at overthrowing the World Government.
In his team includes Luffy’s adoptive brother Sabo as well as one time team-mate Nico Robin of Luffy’s crew.
Hailed as the most dangerous and wanted man in the world, it won’t be a surprise to see his bounty at the top of the echelon.
Out of Top 5 Bounty
Dracule Mihawk (”Hawk-Eyes”) – 1.5 to 2 billion berries, Shichibukai
Update: As Blackbeard and his crew continue to show their might against the powerful Revolutionary forces, Dracule Mihawk, as great a swordsman as he is, cannot stand alone against an emperor of the sea. Especially when fellow ex-Shichibukai, Jinbei, who is also one of the most powerful amongst the Warlords of the Sea, is a subordinate of Yonko Big Mom Charlotte Linlin.
The only one left in the Shichibukai (Seven Warlords of the Sea) who have yet to have a bounty.
Seemingly a user of the Busoshoku and Kenbunshoku Haki, it remains to be seen if Hawk-Eyes Mihawk can use the all powerful Conqueror’s Haki as well.
