The Yonkos Four Emperors in the One Piece world are the most fascinating characters in the New World Sea. Part of the Three Great Powers of the world, each of these yonko is so powerful that even a now deceased Whitebeard and his crew plus allies are able to take on both the other two powers, the Marines and the Shichibukai (Warlords of the Sea).
These Emperors are assisted by their so-called left and right hand men (and women). Every single one of these elite crew are renowned pirates on their own right. Besides ranking the powerful Yonkos, let’s take a look here at which of these commanders are deserved to be ranked in the best top five!
#5 – “Firefist” Portgas D.Ace
Whitebeard Pirates / 550 million berries
The legendary Fire Fist Ace, sworn brother to both One Piece Protagonist Luffy as well as Revolutionary Army’s second in command Sabo, is one of the fans’ favourite. Unfortunately, I can’t rank him higher than Charlotte Cracker, one of the Three Sweet Commanders of the Big Mom Pirates, because Ace has never shown to use any form of Haki yet.
Yes, his Flame-Flame fruit is one of the most impressive, at least during the first half of the Grand Line, but his bounty of “only” 550 million berries (considered quite low versus the other Yonko Commanders) and no demonstrations of taking down big league pirates put him at only number 5 of our list.
#4 – “Thousand Arms” Charlotte Cracker
Big Mom Pirates / 860 million berries
Maybe losing out to the combine duo of Luffy and Nami during their engagement at Totto land didn’t put him in good light, but the Minister of Biscuit Charlotte Cracker has shown he possess a Busoshoku Haki far more powerful than Luffy’s, when he almost cut off Luffy’s Gear Fourth arm.
This is no mean feat and my suspect is that should Luffy need to take him on one-on-one, the winning chances will be very slim. Did I only mention his bounty is a cool 860 million berries? Yes, bounties may not be everything (just take a look at Blackbeard’s 0 bounty), but it also means something.
#3 – Charlotte Smoothie
Big Mom Pirates / 932 million berries
The highest bounty for a female in One Piece, coming in at 932 million berries is no small feat. Charlotte Smoothie is the 14th daughter of Emperor Big Mom, and also one of the Three Sweet Commanders like her brother Charlotte Cracker. Although little has been seen of her devil fruit ability (except that you most probably won’t want to be touched by her), carrying that kind of bounty requires some top notch skills.
#2 – Marco “The Phoenix”
Whitebeard Pirates / ?? million berries
The second in command after legendary captain Whitebeard. Yes, Marco lost to BlackBeard during the “ Payback” Wars, but hey! No commander is suppose to be stronger than their captain anyways. During the Summit War, Marco is able to take on both Kizaru and Aokiji on his own, showing the undisputed might of his Zoan devil fruit ability as well as his use of the Busoshoku Haki.
Calm and collected, will “Marco the Phoenix” take out any of the “Three Disasters” if Nekomamushi were to convince him to help out? We can’t wait to see!
#1 (Tie) – Jack “The Drought”
Beasts Pirates / 1000 million berries
Having the ability to continuously take on Nekomamushi and Inuarashi, both Masters of the mink tribe, says volume on Jack’s ability. Of course, Jack’s rare Ancient Zoan-type devil Fruit, the Mammoth fruit, allows him to transform into these legendary beast to rack havok.
In addition, Jack the Drought has shown he doesn’t know any fear, when he fearlessly take on 3 Marine Admirals, Tsuru, Fujitora and Sengoku; just to rescue Doflamingo. Even after the failed confrontation, Jack looks to have “only” taken slight harm as he continues his search of the ninja Raizo.
Jack has currently one of the highest bounty of 1 billion berries revealed in the One Piece sea, we can’t wait to see his other “BFFs”, the rest of the “Three Disasters” of Yonko Kaido’s elite crew.
#1 (TIE) – charlotte dogtooth katakuri
big Mom PIRATES / 1057 MILLION BERRIES
The last of Big Mom’s fame Sweet Commanders, and having one of the highest bounty to boot too! At 1057 million berries, Dogtooth Charlotte Katakuri shows that he is in a league of his own. First time ever to have heard that someone can train his observation Haki to such an extent until the user is able to see slightly into the future.
It still remains to be seen on his Devil Fruit ability and fighting skills, but with just the bounty wise, he may very well be the second in command to Big Mom Yonko Charlotte Linlin.
Who will eventually emerge as the number one commander? As we continue to await eagerly for more legendary pirates of the emperors crew commanders and hints to appear from One Piece Writer Oda, continue to watch this space (or sea)!
