Top Admirals Of All Time

    I love when a franchise has enough world-building that it can flesh out and introduce more characters in the same line of work. It really helps in the immersion quality of a story when I don’t have just one example of a specific type of character, but more so it doesn’t seem like a single-faceted entity. It’s tiny things like that that make One Piece worth it for many people. It’s all the characters and how none of them seem like empty space. Each better than the next; especially the Admirals.

    Speaking of, with how many Admirals we have encountered over the years, obviously there are going to be some that are just a cut above the rest. The same works for pirates, with the Yonko being made up of the four most powerful pirates in the world, so why wouldn’t it here. After all, the World Government is a ruling body, just as much as the Yonko are in the New World. It’s likely that they employ Admirals after vetting them out thoroughly. So, how do they rank?

    Well, when you think of One Piece, there is more than just sheer strength to consider here. You have the complications of some characters having an edge over others through the consumption of Devil Fruit. Then there are characters that can harness the power of the 3 different Haki aka spiritual energy that basically gives you superpowers. All in all, there is a lot to be considered here.

    So, where do we go from here. Out of all the 7 Admirals we know of so far, only 3 are active at any given time. And while I could mention them all, I’d rather just rank the top 5 that are still currently in the franchise. So, let’s list down the top 5 Admirals in One Piece in today’s selection of Get Ranked!

    5. Issho


    Issho, or Fujitora as he is known as, was part of the Marines during the Dressrosa arc. With the power of the Zushi Zushi No Mi fruit, he had the ability to literally control the gravitational pull around him and manipulate it in something akin to telekinesis.

    As in, the man literally made it rain. With meteors, of all things. Issho was a force to be reckoned with thanks to his manipulation of the elements that could destroy entire islands if he pushed hard enough. He was known for going up against Sabo and fighting on equal planes.

    4. Kuzan


    Literally one of the first Admirals we meet in One Piece, Kuzan was a major player during the Marineford arc. Although he is introduced as being part of the Marines, he actually left them to join the Blackbeard Pirates.

    He is well known for being the possessor of the Hie Hie No Mi fruit, which grants him powers of ice, allowing him to freeze whatever he touches. And when your entire setting happens to be water, that does come in handy.

    3. Borsalino


    Borsalino happens to be a bit of a wild card. Because he follows the ‘Unclear Justice’, his true intentions and motivations always feel hidden off to the side. But, because of this, he tends to be a little more reckless than most.

    And because he happens to have one of the most dangerous fruits as his power, aka the Pika Pika No Mi, let’s just say he’s a force to be reckoned with. Being able to create and manipulate light, he literally blindsides his opponents.

    2. Sakazuki


    Sakazuki happens to be the current Fleet Admiral of the Marines, so you know he’s a powerful foe. I mean, he was able to defeat Borsalino and take his place so, that explains a lot.

    With the Magu Magu No Mi aiding him, his strength is insane. His attack power is lethal and he knows it. He was able to hold his own against Whitebeard, of all people. Not many get to do that and live to tell the tale.

    1. Sengoku


    Granted the seal of approval by Gol D. Rogers himself, Sengoku is a legend in the One Piece world. I mean, being acknowledged by the Pirate King, what more do you need? There’s also the fact that he is the only admiral that, to date, possesses the power of the Conqueror’s Haki, aka the most powerful type.

    That isn’t mentioning his Devil fruit, Hito Hito No Mi, Model: Daibatsu, which allows him to send tremors of shockwaves.
