The One Piece world is filled with many various beautifully crafted characters. Within them is the class of Swordsman, who occupy important roles within the pirate crews. Who ranks amongst the best? Let’s take a look…
Hawk Eyes Mihawk is already known as THE greatest swordsman in the World. Mihawk is the teacher of Roronoa Zoro, the up and coming swordsman and a member of One Piece’s protagonist Luffy’s crew. Using his fame Black Sword Yoru, Mihawk cuts up mountains for fun.
Emperor Red-Haired Shanks is a sparring partner to Dracule Mihawk in their younger days. The inspiration behind Luffy’s growth and the man who stopped the Summit War, this Yonko causes shock and awe whenever he makes a move in the New World.
The vice-captain of the legendary Pirate King’s crew is as strong as it gets. Even at his current older age he is able to hold of Marine Admiral Kizaru by himself. Plus, he isn’t even a Devil Fruit user. One can only imagine Dark King Rayleigh during this all-conquering years.
One of the current Marine Admiral, and known as the powerful “Purple Tiger”. Fujitora’s Haki and gravity ability allows him to take on Sabo, the second command of the Revolutionary Army as well as the Luffy’s sworn brother. Did you see how he is able to pull down meteor strikes?
Yonko Kaido’s right-hand man is also one of the three Disasters. The highest bounty so far in the One Piece world, Jack is able to take on Inuarashi and Nekomamushi, the leaders of the Mink tribe, in consecutive days without being overwhelmed. This should be a very exciting duel betwen Zoro and Jack’s Ancient Zoan Elephant Devil Fruit and his monsterous size and swordsmanship.
the Up and coming Five
The first crew of Luffy’s Straw Hat pirates and whom is also his vice-captain. “Pirate Hunter” Zoro’s name is already causing ripples in the New World. Under the tutelage of master swordsman Hawkeyes, Zoro has brought his swordsmanship to another elite level. Previously when Zoro fights, he ends up in quite bad shape, these days, it only results in panting. Only a matter of time before he slices his way into the top five ranking.
One of the Three Sweet Commanders under the Yonko Big Mom Pirates, his bounty of 860 million berries is not a joke. “Thousand Arms Cracker” has also known to be able to take down Urouge of the Worst Generation. Can the Biscuit Knight take down Zoro? It remains to be seen.
Yonko Black Beard’s second fleet captain Shiliew of the Rain was once the Head Jailer of the fame Impel Down. Little about his full ability is known yet, but, you can’t be part of Blackbeard’s fleet captain if you don’t have some skills.
The ex-Shichibukai has both the skills and brain. To be ranked inside the seven Warlords of the Sea as well as getting that bounty of his is no small feat. The “Surgeon of Death” Law, wielding his cursed blade Kikoku is good, but until he is able to best say Issho or other stronger swordsman, he still needs that little bit more to rank within the best five in the One Piece World.
If Mihawk, the world’s greatest swordsman, knows you, you can’t be half bad. Couple with Vista’s rank as one of the now deceased ex-emperor Whitebeard’s division commander, Vista must be good. He fought practically on-par with Mihawk during the Summit War. It now remains to be seened if he is able to defeat his sworn enemy Blackbeard’s commander Shiliew.
