One Piece: The 10 biggest bounty increases in the series

With the war of Wano which turned the tide of the times, One Piece saw massive bounty increases.

The One Piece world has many powerful pirates who have earned huge bounties over the years. These pirates established themselves as important figures in the New World, however, their notoriety and infamy were not always so high. The majority of them had humble beginnings and started out with low premiums.


Gradually, the numbers placed on their heads increased and, in some cases, even jumped forward. From East Blue to Wano, here are the biggest bounty increases fans have seen so far in history.

10 – Scratchmen Apoo – 198 to 350 million Berry


Scratchmen Apoo is one of the worst generation members and the captain of the On-Air Pirates. He was introduced to fans during the Sabaody Archipelago arc where his bounty was revealed to be 198 million Berry.

After the timeskip, Apoo’s reward was increased to 350 million Berry, which is a significant increase from 152 million Berry. Apoo has since started working for Kaido, and after his downfall, his current allegiance remains unknown.

9 – Sanji – 177 to 330 million Berry


Member of the Straw Hat Pirates, Sanji is an incredibly powerful fighter. Although not from the worst generation, Sanji is stronger than the majority of them. His fighting skill was belatedly recognized by the government, and as such, he received his first bounty quite late compared to Zorro and Luffy.

Nevertheless, Sanji also received a massive increase after the timeskip when his bounty increased from 177 million to 330 million, an increase of 153 million berry.

8 – Capone Gang Bege – 138 to 300 million Berry


West Blue pirate and member of the worst generation, Capone Gang Bege is the captain of the Fire Tank Pirates. He is an exceptionally cunning fighter who is known to betray his allies quite often.

His cruel ways earned him a certain reputation and also earned him huge bounties. During the Sabaody Archipelago arc, it was revealed that he had a bounty of 138 million Berry on his head. After the timeskip, that number jumped to 300 million, an increase of Berry’s 162 million.

7 – Usopp – 30 million to 200 million Berry


The sniper of the Straw Hat Pirates, Usopp is one of the weakest members of the crew, but he often gains notoriety. He received his first bounty of 30 million berries after the events of the Enies Lobby arc.

After the events of the Dressrosa arc, Usopp’s bounty has increased dramatically to 200 million Berry, a staggering increase of 170 million Berry.

6 – Roronoa Zoro – 120 million to 320 million Berry


The fighter from the Straw Hat Pirates, Roronoa Zoro is one of the most powerful swordsmen in the world of One Piece. He was known as the Pirate Hunter long before he even joined Luffy’s crew and his notoriety only skyrocketed over the years.

Zoro’s first bounty was 60 million Berry, which he received after the Alabasta arc. Following the events of Enies Lobby, he received a bounty of 120 million from Berry which increased to 320 million after the events of the Dressrosa arc, with an increase of 200 million.

5 – Charlotte Linlin – 50 million to 500 million Berry


A force of nature herself, Charlotte Linlin was born monstrously powerful. After her parents abandoned her, Mother Carmel took care of her, actually intending to sell her to the Navy. Even before Linlin ate her Devil Fruit, it was rumored that she had the potential to one day become the Fleet Admiral of the Navy.

After receiving her Devil Fruit powers, Linlin became a pirate. His first bounty was 50 million Berry, which later increased to 500 million Berry – a staggering increase of 450 million Berry. His other raises are yet to be known to fans, however, his final bounty was 4.388 billion berries.

4 – Luffy – 1.5 billion to 3 billion Berry


Captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, Luffy is one of the most notorious figures in the One Piece world. From the start of his journey, he was considered a pirate to watch.

Not only did he become the baddest man in East Blue, but he also achieved great infamy in half of Grand Line’s Paradise and then the New World. Luffy’s bounty during the Land of Wa arc was 1.5 Billion Berry and she climbed to 3 billion Berry after defeating Kaido, with a boost of 1.5 billion Berry.

3 – Trafalgar Law – 500 million to 3 billion Berry


The Surgeon of Death, Trafalgar Law is a famous pirate in North Blue. With the powers of the Ope Ope no Mi, he has gained massive infamy over the years.

Law teamed up with Luffy to defeat Doflamingo and earned a bounty of 500 million berries after he fell. After taking down Big Mom with Eustass Kid, her bounty increased to 3 billion Berry, a massive increase of 2.5 billion.

2 – Eustass Kid – 470 – 3 Billion Berry


Hailing from South Blue, Eustass Kid leads to Kid Pirates. He is known to be a ruthless pirate who killed many on his way to the Sabaody Archipelago.

After the two-year time-skip, he received a bounty of 470 million from Berry. He teamed up with Trafalgar Law in the Wano Country arc to take down Big Mom. As a result, his bounty increased to 3 billion Berry, which is a significant increase from 2.530 billion Berry.

1 – Buggy – 15 million to ??? by Berry


Buggy is one of the most intriguing characters in One Piece. Introduced quite early in the series during the Orange Town arc, he was found to have a bounty of 15 million Berry. Buggy is not that powerful, however, it has a habit of failing upwards. After the Marineford War, he became one of the Shichibukai, and thus his bounty of 15 million Berry was frozen.

Following the disbandment of the Shichibukai system, Buggy became one of the Yonko, thanks to his pedigree and connections in the New World. As such, his bounty is certainly in the billions right now. Although the exact figure is not known, Buggy is certainly among the pirates with the biggest bounty increases of all time.
