The long-running One Piece has introduced anime and manga fans to some pretty powerful heroes and villains over the course of its run. However, few of them compare to Gol D. Roger, the pirate whose titular One Piece treasure is the main goal of protagonist Monkey D. Luffy and a variety of other characters. In this new exclusive video, we’re ranking where various One Piece characters rank in terms of power, using Gol D. Roger as our comparison point.
The first person on our list is Edward Newgate/Whitebeard. Many figured Whitebeard would replace Gol D. Roger as Pirate King due in large part to his immense power and mastery of his Devil Fruit, which allowed him to create earthquakes. The pirate repeatedly proved his worth, and actually fought Gol D. Roger in a pretty legendary fight, though it wasn’t to the death. While Whitebeard did eventually die, Gol D. Roger did admit the pirate was incredibly strong, easily making him one of the most powerful characters in One Piece. Still, there are those who are stronger than Whitebeard, and even some characters who pre-date Gol D. Roger that could absolutely have been the Pirate King.
Check out the video below to find out where even more One Piece characters rank in relation to Gol D. Roger.
