One Piece (ワンピース) is a manga series created by Eiichiro Oda on July 22, 1997. In 2022, it is still being published in Weekly Shonen Jump and Shueisha (in Japan) as well as in France by the publisher Glénat . With a very good anime adaptation, success is there and it is now the most popular manga in the world. With several hundred characters introduced to the story over the years, there’s plenty to do.
Whether main characters, secondary characters or even brief appearances, much of the “cast” of One Piece has a deep history with connections in every direction. Often, Oda does not hesitate to call on characters that we discovered for the first time 5 or 10 years ago. Some manga personalities are very powerful, others are funny or very smart. Anyway, many One Piece fans are looking for a ranking of the best characters in general!
For this, we mainly rely on the data collected by the tens of thousands of votes on the MyAnimeList website. Each spectator can then vote for one or more characters, each time offering a single point for their favorite personality. The data has been collected for more than 20 years, so we believe this is enough to offer you an intelligent and objective ranking of the best characters in the work. Moreover, the 15 names that have been selected are not only main characters, which is an asset and highlights the richness of the universe. Of course, you may not agree, so we invite you to comment at the end of the article.
As usual, we are not going to content ourselves with giving you the ranking with just the names of the main characters. You will find an associated illustration image as well as a short description to better understand each hero, especially if you haven’t read or watched One Piece yet.
