As One Piece continues towards the New World where the mighty Four Emperors of the Sea start to make their move in pursuit of the Pirate King crown, main story protagonist Monkey D. Luffy and his crew continues to take down elite pirates to gain new heights on their personal bounty. Where will their bounty eventually reach? We make our guesses here.
“Straw Hat” Monkey D. Luffy
Current: 500 million berries -> Future: 2 to 2.5 billion berries
As the main character of One Piece, his bounty is bound to be on par with a Yonko eventually. Although it has always shown that Luffy will take down the final boss, my personal take is that the eventual FINAL FINAL boss in the One Piece manga will be a concerted effort. An enemy so strong that it may take several emperors, Shichibukais and Luffy plus his crew to take him/her/it down.
To be able to go toe to toe with a Yonko, assuming they come in at 2+ billion, Luffy should be coming in around that figure, maybe just losing out to great dad, “Dragon the Revolutionary”, Leader of the Revolutionary army.
“Pirate Hunter” Roronoa Zoro
Current: 320 million berries -> Future: 1.5 to 2 billion berries
Well, he is the de facto vice captain of the Straw hat Crew after all. Apprentice to the greatest swordsman Mihawk, and eventually will have to rival legendary vice captains like Dark King Silvers Rayleigh (assuming Luffy becomes the Pirate King) or Macro the Phoenix, first division commander of the now defunct Whitebeard Pirates. User of 2 out of 3 Hakis, I can’t wait to see Roronoa Zoro take on Jack “The Drought” to leap into the billion dollar tier bounty.
“Black Leg” Vinsmoke Sanji
Current: 177 million berries -> Future: 1 to 1.5 billion berries
The last of the monster trio of the Straw Hat Crew. Prince of the Vinsmoke empire, whose genes was modified by birth and greatly enhanced. Sanji is also well-trained in the art of swordsmanship, a technique that is seldom used, but greatly suspected as a trump card. Also taking on the third strongest opponent during the previous One Piece story arcs, who will he take on against the commanders of the notorious Emperors? We will find out soon enough.
Current: 200 million berries -> Future: 1 to 1.5 billion berries
“God” is now currently the 3rd highest ranked bounty in the Straw Hat pirates crew……HAHAHA!! I’m laughing because it was so comical on how the so call “weakest” of the crew has now got that bounty to be ranked third! And how he has been reacting to his new found “bounty fame”. But jokes aside, “God” Usopp is a highly skillful marksman.
The son of Yasopp, who is the Sniper of the powerful Yonko Red Hair Shanks’ crew, and who has demonstrated the art of shooting off the antennae of an ant one hundred feet away. If inheritance of genes is true, we will soon see the potential of what Usopp has to offer to the Straw Hat crew. By the way, Usopp is able to tap onto the powerful Kenbunshoku Observation Haki as well.
“Devil Child” Nico Robin
Current: 130 million berries -> Future: 750 to 1000 million berries
Do not underestimate this tier, just ranking into 750 to 1000 million berries range would have put one into the “Commander” level of any One Piece Yonko. Nico Robin’s Flower-Flower devil fruit ability allows her to produce parts of her body anywhere as long as she knows the position. Throughout the journey, Robin has proven she has been quite capable of bringing down powerful foes. Just recall the casual approach she took to lock Cavendish down, who is no small fry when he goes into Hakuba mode (Cavendish is a 330 million bounty super rookie pirate by-the-way).
Should Robin is able to reach this stage, which I seriously feel she has the capacity to do so, she will already be on par with notorious pirates like Jack “The Drought”, Charlotte Smoothie or “Thousand Arms” Charlotte Cracker. Adding to the premium of the bounty would be her knowledge to unravel the secrets of the Poneglyph, the requirement to become Pirate King!
“Iron Man” Franky
Current: 94 million berries -> Future: 500 to 750 million berries
The shipwright of Luffy’s crew and student of Puffing Tom who constructed the late Pirate King Roger’s ship. “Cyborg” Franky is an interesting proposition. He basically is able to upgrade himself based on technology. Tactically, he may know no boundaries to his combat ability levels and I can’t wait to see a further “General” Franky to emerge.
“Soul King” Brook
Current: 83 million berries -> Future: 300 to 500 million berries
The musician of the crew, Brook’s Revive-Revive fruit gives him a very unique kind of ability to help out his nakama. His ability to freeze opponents make it akin to former admiral Kuzan (Aokiji), just not on that grand scale yet. Due to his devil fruit ability, he is already considered a “vintage” in the pirate world. How will he further develop and enhance his devil fruit powers, let’s find out soon.
“Cat Burglar” Nami
Current: 66 million berries -> Future: 300 to 500 million berries
With the ability to manipulate weather and its power, navigator Nami packs some serious firepower, evident from her drawing of enormous thunderbolt to take down Emperor Big Mom’s chess army. Slightly akin to Franky, as long as her trusty staff, the Clima-Tact, can continue to get it’s upgrade, “Cat Burglar” Nami will only get better and better.
“Cotton Candy Lover” Tony Tony Chopper
Current: 100 berries -> Future: 300 to 500 million berries
Chopper is the MOST underrated amongst the Straw hat crew. This elite devil-fruit user doctor has up to 7 transformations that allows him to take down various enemies. Although Chopper doesn’t like to battle, his will to protect and save his crew and friends will make his transform into a monster, literally. It won’t be too long before One Piece author Eiichiro Oda match Chopper to take on an elite adversary amongst the Yonkos.
