The Wano arc is at its conclusion, and by the end, we have two new members of the Straw Hat Pirates, Jinbei and Yamato. Yes, you read it right. One Piece Chapter 1051 confirmed that Yamato will official join the Straw Hats’ crew. We all know that Yamato is Kaido’s biological daughter and so powerful.
Therefore, with the entry of new members and the powerups of previous crewmates, we have decided to come up with the latest ranking list of Straw Hat Pirates based on their increase in power in the Wano arc.
In this list, we have ranked Jinbei and Yamato, too, as these two are now the official members of the Straw Hat Pirates. However, in the list, we have decided not to include Carrot as she is still not part of the official Straw Hat crew. Maybe in the future, we will add her too if things go well for her. So, without any further decision, let’s begin.
Monkey D Luffy is the captain and the strongest member of the Straw Hat Pirates. Previously fans placed him in the monster trio of Straw Hats along with Zoro and Sanji.
But now, he is at the god tier level after achieving tremendous power by awakening his fruit. Devil fruit awakening is just a cherry on his power. His strongest ability is mastering all three Haki on another level.
The series also revealed the actual identity of his fruit i.e., Mythical Zoan Devil Fruit Hito Hito no Mi model Nika. Monkey D. Luffy is one of the few characters in One Piece who has awakened the Zoan Devil Fruit.
Yamato is Kaido’s daughter and the newest member of the Straw Hat Pirates. Undoubtedly, she is one of the strongest characters in One Piece. Many fans will contradict Yamato’s ranking by placing Zoro in the second position.
But let us inform you that presently Yamato is more powerful than Zoro in many terms. First, she has all three Haki. We know that Zoro also showed a glimpse of his Conqueror Haki, but Yamato’s level of using Supreme King Haki is far superior.
Like Luffy and other Yonkos, she clashed her Conqueror Haki with Kaido (in his hybrid form) at an equal level. Second, based on physical strength, she has the upper hand over Zoro.
The series has already unveiled how Yamato was able to fight Kaido one on one. Third, she has Mythical Zoan Fruit Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Okuchi no Makami that allows her to transform into a Divine Wolf, and in her hybrid form, she can use multiple abilities like Kaido.
We know that in the future, Zoro will surpass Yamato, but currently, after the Wano battle, Yamato is far stronger than him. Therefore, it’s not wrong to place Yamato in the monster trio.
Roronoa Zoro is the combatant and one of the strongest members of the Straw Hat Pirates. Zoro is the only character in the Straw Hat Pirates who has become without any help of devil fruit and external modifications.
His dream is to become the strongest swordsman, and he is the only character in the One Piece series who uses the three-sword style. He is our favorite character because of his serious nature, taking every fight seriously, and respect for his captain, Luffy.
Recently, after the battle with King, he has gained tremendous experience in controlling his new sword, Enma, the King of Hell. If he learns to dominate Enma, then he becomes more powerful. Presently, the power difference between Zoro and Sanji is very low.
Vinsmoke Sanji, the cook of the Straw Hat Pirates, is also one of the strongest members. He is always the part of the monster trio. During the battle with Queen, his body awakened genetic enhancements by using the Raid suit multiple times.
It results in achieving superhuman abilities like enhanced physical strength (Queen’s sword was broken when he attacked Sanji’s neck), enhanced speed (Queen stated that Sanji is moving too fast that he become invisible), and durability (now Sanji generates blue flames from his legs).
He is now so powerful that he sent Queen, in Brachiosaurus hybrid form, flying through several walls only with his one kick. Many fans are considering that currently, Sanji is more powerful than Zoro.
It can be true. However, we know that Oda sensei will not show Zoro inferior to Sanji; that’s why we have placed him in the fourth position.
Another newest and one of the strongest members of the Straw Hat Pirates is Jimbei. He is the helmsman of the Straw Hat crew. No one can steer a ship better than the Knight of the Sea.
He is also the second most powerful Fishman after Jack. Jimbei knows Observation and Armament Haki and uses it with Fishman karate. During the Wano Battle, he defeated the strongest member of Toppi Roppo, i.e., Who’s Who.
Franky, the cyborg, is one of the most crucial members who made the Straw Hat Pirates Ship, Thousand Sunny. He has modified himself and the ship with various new generation equipment that is powerful enough to crush anyone.
During the time skip, he learned various futuristic technologies from Vegapunk’s lab. Also, in the Wano Arc, he defeated Sasaki, the second most powerful member of the Flying Six.
We have placed himself above Robin because no one knows what kind of equipment he summons to take down his opponent. He always has something up in his sleeves.
Nico Robin, the Devil Child, is one of the strongest members of the Straw Hat Pirates who defeated Black Maria. She ate Bloom Bloom Paramecia Devil Fruit which allows her to bloom her arms or legs from anywhere.
In the recent chapter, she unveiled her new potential when she emerged Armament Haki on her bloomed body parts. She also made a gigantic devil fully emerge in Haki that crushed Black maria (in hybrid form).
Robin also plays a crucial role in the One Piece series because she is the only one who can read Poneglyph.
Brook, the Soul King, is also one of the strongest members of the Straw Hat Pirates who cannot die because he is already dead. His Devil Fruit Yomi Yomi no Mi allows him to resurrect his soul.
He is the eldest member of the Straw Hat Pirates at the age of 90 years old. Like Zoro, Brook is one sword-style swordsman who uses a different kind of ice abilities. He can also take out his soul to wander.
Tony-Tony Chopper is the doctor of the Straw Hat Pirates. His dream is to become the greatest doctor who can cure any disease. He has a vast knowledge of medicine and plays a significant role during any fight.
He ate Hito Hito no Mi, which allows him to change into the seven different transformations according to the circumstances. His Monster Point transformation requires a rumble ball that transforms him into a gigantic monster giving him an exponential increase in strength and durability. In his Monster point, he was able to fight against Big Mom.
Nami is one of the most beautiful characters in the One Piece series. She is the navigator of Straw Hat Pirates, who upgraded her navigation skills in the Skypiea.
She is also very clever that she theft Zeus from Big Mom and now uses his power for her own needs. With Zeus, she can take care of herself. Nami is also very intelligent to knows how to use Zeus’ abilities to overpower her opponents.
Usopp is the sniper of the Straw Hat Pirates who has advanced Observation Haki. With his Haki, he can see far distant objects and easily snipe them.
Currently, he is the weakest member of the Straw Hat Pirates, but later on, we will see his growth and role in the series. Many fans are predicting that in the next arc, Usopp will train harder to master his Observation Haki.
Here, we conclude our list of the strongest members of the Straw Hat Pirates. We hope you like it. We will be back with a new list. Till then, stay tuned with us and read the articles mentioned below.
