He usually moves his fingers accordingly to bend them as he pleases in order to manipulate people like puppets or bifurcate his targets. The strings are extremely thin and some may even be invisible, making it almost impossible to notice and avoid them.
With his “Parasite” move, Doflamingo can force his comrades to fight (and even kill each other), while he himself sits on the sidelines and watches.
Ropes can also be used for cutting, allowing Doflamingo to effortlessly slice through body parts and destroy weapons.
Doflamingo’s mastery of his Devil Fruit is so advanced that he was able to awaken his powers and even transform its environment into string.
Doflamingo is one of the very few people in the world able to use all three types of Haki.

King is one of three Beasts Pirates All-Stars, who are Kaido’s closest confidants known as “Disasters”. Born as Alber, he is a member of the Red Line Moon race, known for their ability to create fire. He is currently 47 years old.
In terms of combat, King is the most powerful member of the Beasts Pirates after Kaido himself, his massive bounty of 1,390,000,000 berries illustrating his fearsome reputation. A seasoned pirate, King has been part of Kaido’s crew for over three decades, seemingly as Kaido’s first recruit and recognized and nicknamed by Kaido in his youth for his extraordinary strength. Due to his lunar ancestry, he is extremely tough and durable, with Queen describing him as a monster capable of surviving in any natural environment.

King ate the Ryu Ryu no Mi, Pattern: Pteranodon, an ancient zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a full pteranodon and a humanoid lunar-pteranodon hybrid at will. When transformed, he is dressed more in flames than usual and gains the ability to fly at high speed.
In battle, even without invoking his Zoan transformation, King is able to take extremely powerful attacks without being staggered or shedding a drop of blood.
King is extremely fast and agile, despite his large size. His speed is much greater when the flame on his back is extinguished, allowing him to move faster than the untrained eye can follow, at the cost of a decrease in his natural durability. King is also able to fly thanks to his feathery wings, without needing to transform into a zoan.

6 – JOZU

Jozu One Piece

Jozu is 42 years old. He demonstrated one of the greatest feats of strength in the series, although it is not yet clear how the loss of his right arm will affect his strength.
Despite his massive body, his speed and reflexes match his brute strength. This speed, combined with his Haki, makes Jozu particularly dangerous against Logia users.
Jozu ate the Kira Kira no Mia Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows him to turn parts of his body, and most likely his entire body, into a diamond.
Jozu’s powers allow him to greatly increase his offensive and defensive abilities, as his already powerful physical attacks are enhanced by the density of his diamond body. His defenses seem to improve exponentially, as he is able to block the world’s strongest saber strike, Shichibukai Dracule Mihawk, with no visible damage to himself, diamond being one of the hardest substances in the world. world, with marine granite and the poneglyphs.

5 – Lucky Roux

Lucky Roux

Lucky Roux is one of the most important men in Yonko Shanks. He is the first person to have killed someone, in both anime and manga, by shooting a mountain bandit in the head at point-blank range. He is currently 35 years old.
During Romance Dawn we see one of Higuma’s men pointing a gun at Shanks head, then after Shanks warns him, Lucky Roux suddenly appears and shoots him. Now here comes the question: how can a man of this size get there so quickly without being noticed? It is likely to be based on Lucky Luke (a fictional cowboy-fighter from the Franco-Belgian comic strip “Lucky Luke”) who is known as “the man who shoots faster than his shadow”.
Lucky Roux is supposed to be a master of Haki or, at any rate, a master at something different; in particular, many have speculated that he uses a technique called “Return to Life”. In this case, Lucky Roux eats so much because he is storing energy for a battle. Returning to life gives him the ability to control his body; this can be used to turn fat into muscle, or simply turn fat into energy.

4 – Marco the Phoenix

Marco One Piece

Marco is 45 years old. He is a very strong individual, as he demonstrated in the Marineford War, he is of a similar combat level to the three Admirals. He was fully capable of fighting against Admirals Kizaru, Aokiji and Akainu and to defend themselves.
Marco the Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix, a mythical zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a phoenix, granting him the ability to fly.
Although this fruit’s power is classified as a Zoan, due to the uniqueness of the phoenix, the additional powers it bestows can be considered similar to those of Paramecia (the somewhat ‘superhuman’ power that affects the body of the user: regeneration) and Logia (the generation of light blue phoenix flames).

Marco can recover from any damage he accumulates in his human form by returning to his phoenix form, or phoenix hybrid, or simply by summoning blue flames around his body. These blue flames are not hot, they do not burn or spread like normal fire; they are what allow him to heal, and they are called the “blue flames of resurrection”.

Additionally, the healing properties of his blue flames can also be used to heal other beings, although to a more limited extent, allowing Marco to act as an effective doctor. Although phoenix flames do not burn or spread like normal fire, they are still considered a special form of flame far more powerful than normal fire, as proven when Marco subdued Prometheus, the Big Mom’s “special” fire homie.


Benn Beckman

Benn Beckman has the highest IQ of all East Blue residents. During his travels, he gained a lot of experience, with an incredibly advanced intellect and great thinking skills. He is 50 years old.
When the Red-Haired Pirates arrived at Marineford to stop the war, Beckman was able to climb onto the mast of a Marines ship and sit on it, while pointing his shotgun at Kizaru, without the latter stumbling. notice it. Admiral Kizaru chose not to fight him, despite having just fought the first commander of Whitebeard’s crew and Whitebeard himself.
According “One Piece: Living Card Databook”, Benn Beckman is almost as strong as Shanks! His card indicates that Benn is incredibly powerful in terms of physical combat. The card even says that “Comparable to that of Shanks, the existence of this man is feared even by the mighty warriors of the New World!!! »



Mihawk is a world famous pirate who currently holds the title of “World’s Greatest Swordsman”. He is 43 years old.
Part of Mihawk’s reputation as the world’s most powerful master swordsman is also due to his enormous superhuman physical power and fortitude which complement his mastery of the sword. He has immense combat skill and exceptional eyesight..
The fact that Mihawk has been a rival of one of the Yonko implies that Mihawk might be one of the strongest characters in the series. In fact, he is known to have often fought with Shanks when they were younger. Their battles are said to have shaken the whole of Grand Line and Mihawk would often seek out Shanks for duels. However, Mihawk lost interest in him after Shanks lost his left arm. Mihawk has remained unscathed in the entire series so far.



Shanks is 39 years old. He is the model of Luffy and the man our main protagonist wants to one day surpass. In the series, it makes sense for Shanks to be powerful because he’s the character the main protagonist wants to fight last on his journey. Shanks’ full combat potential has yet to be explored, but many clues point to Shanks being an extremely powerful individual. For starters, he was able to scare a massive Sea King just by looking at him (until it was discovered he was using Conqueror’s Haki, the most powerful form of Haki).

He also fought on equal terms with Whitebeard, another Emperor, and even fought another, Kaido, and arrived at Marineford without a scratch. Additionally, he managed to fend off Akainu, where the Savage Admiral seemed a bit shocked by his presence and stopped pursuing Luffy after he arrived. Above all, Blackbeard, who possessed the powers of the destructive Gura Gura no Mi Fruit and the evil Yami Yami no Mi Fruit, chose not to fight Shanks saying “he’s not strong enough to fight him yet”..
Shanks has thoroughly mastered all 3 types of Haki. He is the only character to possess Haoshoku Haki that actually damages physical objects.
All of this makes Shanks a force to be reckoned with and certainly one of the strongest characters in the series.
