Rankings from Power Scaling.
We will discuss who are the strongest characters in the Straw Hat Pirate’s crew. Not only that, but we all rank their position in the crew, all from one to ten.
Did you see that chart above? Well, I am proud of it, as the chart showcases the basics of where Straw Hats stand at. Here we will be going through impressive feats, battles won and guts a straw hat has. The ‘guts’ part is because yours truly has noticed, that only absurdly strong-willed characters tend to be superior in One Piece. A pretty ‘in your face’ example is the Conqueror’s Haki whose strength is dependent upon the will of its user. Moreover, each and every canon king’s Haki user has the power both physical and in numbers, accordingly have a lot of powerful subordinates as for evidence just look at the Riley (he is powerhouse alone) Younkous having fleets, Boa Hancock as an empress, Doflamingo being a king with officers or currently even one of the least powerful Don Chinjou commanding the Happo Navy. Thus I conclude conqueror’s Haki is equal to certified ‘badassness’. Err, we are going off-topic here hence I will proceed with the topic at hand, sparing details here is the list of all ten Straw Hat Pirates, in the order of the most powerful to least one.
Each and every One Piece fan should have a Straw hat flag in his room. To show that we stand ready, whenever our captain calls, as we are the self-proclaimed members of straw hat grand fleet.
Jokes aside this the best quality flag you will find online, I have this in my room too.
#10 ‘God’ Ussop
You must be in a shock provided that God himself occupies the last position in terms of power although, personally I would have selected GoDUssop, Sniper King, and CornDiano as the legendary top 3 in One Piece. Sadly I cannot due to the reason that within the straw hats his majesty remains in his suppressed state, rather than his divine one. Ok, enough with the memes only a man of culture would get. On a serious note, Oda has stated himself that “Usopp has been and will be the weakest in straw hats”-One Piece 10th treasure (2007). We also know Oda likes to follow ‘trends’ even though he said that in 2007, there is really only one scene when I thought Ussop as a badass, and that was at his fight in Alabasta arc, previously I would have put Nami in this place, but she got Zeus now, and that is no small matter. The only thing I can think of as a saving grace for our favorite sniper is that he has a kind of long-range observation Haki, this put him on top 5, right? No, this ability does not help in solo combat, I mean common even Ussop himself acknowledges he is weak.
9# ‘Demon Child’ Robin
When Robin joined the crew she had the second highest bounty yet as we know now that was because, to put it simply, Robin can read the Ponoglypes. Robins abilities are as follows,
- Flower-flower fruit allows her to grow her limbs anywhere.
- Merging 1000s of hands or feet, making giant ones.
- Can fly.
- Limbs grow literally on any solid surface, this gives her versatility.
The only reason people might disagree is assuming that she is weaker then Nami and Chopper, this will be explained when talking about those two, as I try not to repeat my self.
#8 ‘Cat Bugler’ Nami
Nami is here, many will disagree on Nami being this high on the list, however, some will disagree, Why Nami is so low? just hear me out, please. She would be number 10, if not for Zeus, on top of that Ussop made here a new weather-controlling pole. Zeus is no laughing matter, it can deal with huge damage over a large area, . Although in manga Zeus became weak after discharge. I think it got his powers from Big Mom directly, as Prometheus got giant when Lin Lin got pissed, even in this case Nami is not in trouble as she can charge Zeus seemingly indefinitely with her thunderclouds. Ussop and Robin would be killed by Zeus in most situations
Now to the question; Why is she below chopper? the answer is given below.
#7 ‘Cotton Candy Lover’ Tony Tony Chopper
Chopper is considered one of the so-called ‘weak trio’ that’s mainly due to his childish and timid character. But we should keep in mind he is in no way incapable in combat, as our favorite reindeer has one of the biggest arsenals of abilities, and most forms out of any Zoan type devil fruit in One Piece. Here is a list of Chopper’s forms abilities.
All 7 Chopper’s rumble points
- Monster point
- Horn point
- Arm point
- Walk point
- Guard point
- Kung-fu Point
- Brain Point
The rest of the abilities of Chopper’s are as a doctor, not for combat. Although Chopper once used anesthesia attack on Luffy to make him hallucinate and later unconscious.
The monster point itself is very powerful as before time skip, it was wrecking all CP9. ok, it’s time for a headcanon, so does this makes chopper stronger then Zoro, Luffy, and Sanji combined? Is he now stronger then monster trio combined during Water 7 arc?
#6 ‘Cyborg’ Franky
Franky is a hell of a strong character, however, the community is underestimating him due to his battle with Senior Pink, now let me clear this. That was a battle of men, not your typical all-out one.
Franky also has general Franky which is nearly indestructible, he utilized Vegapunk’s tech on his body, which now makes his radical beam comparable to that of Pacifistas. Franky as a whole is definitely stronger than many Pacifistas together.
#5 ‘Soul King’ Brook
Brook is a powerhouse, he faced the Big Mom, although he did nothing much to her. Brook was no doubt the MVP of whole cake island arc. He is a swordsman moreover he can summon frost from underworld to freeze others furthermore he cannot take damage, he will not die unless his entire body shatters at once.
When push comes to shove we have seen Brook become fearless when facing danger. Remember when he was practically alone when that women showed up on Sunny at Dressrosa. He also took on the responsibility of save guarding the weaker Straw hats on the Mink island, while fighting against the sheep head guy.
#4 ‘First Son of Sea’ Jinbe
The only thing I need to justify here is, how is Sanji stronger? at which I have shed light under Sanji’s sub-heading.
I am a proud anime fan, although I do get some weird looks if I am rocking the anime waifu T-shirt.
So how do I manage to express myself while also being hidden from the judging gaze of others?
With the straw hat, of course, it works for literally all situations that a One Piece fan can be in.
#3 ‘Black Leg’ Vinsmoke Sanji
To be honest, Sanji did not display much in the latest arc yet I think he will shine more in the future as this guy has not shown his full capabilities for now. Jinbe seems stronger than Sanji but I know Oda will make Sanji shine again. Our monster cook has finally gotten a new power-up, the raid suit.
Sanji’s has increased dramatically, as we have seen him beating page one with no difficulty at all. Also, it was impressive how he took on both Hawkins and Drake at the same time without even a single second thought.
Sanji compared to Zoro, swordsman wins although not easily, its evident is this story about how they always closely match up, for example, the power levels of CP9 agents they fought only differ slightly. If these two fight, I imagine it to be like Fleet-Admiral Akainu vs Admiral Aokoji.
The other two on the list are there just to kill, as when Luffy describes the specific jobs of the crew, Zoro’s is swordsman while Sanji is the cook, Luffy is the captain but does not do much of that sort, he is for brawls only.
2# ‘Pirate Hunter’ Roanoa Zoro
There is a debate in the community that Zoro or Luffy, Who is stronger? I think it is not fair to compare Luffy with Zoro, do not get me wrong here. These two are not at all far apart in terms of power however my reasoning is that Luffy is the captain and will always be the strongest in his crew, both of these monsters have unbelievable feats of toughness and offense. The last thing to say is that Zoro has not shown his true powers yet, he just pounded and played with any opponent he got thus far.
#1 ‘Straw Hat’ Monkey D. Luffy
No explanation needed here, our most loved pirate captain is the strongest and by the end of the series will be the strongest character in One Piece.
