Written by publishing team

The Worst Generation is a powerful group of pirates in the one piece world who are the leaders of the new era of piracy. They made their presence known shortly before the Paramount War by arriving on Sabaody Archipelago with a bounty of over 100 million berries. They went by the name of the Eleven Supernova at the time.

After the timeskip, the Supernova members have become a serious power in the New World and are now competing for supremacy among the mightiest pirates. What’s more, they were joined by Blackbeard who, after the Grudge War, became a Yonko, hence forming the Worst Generation. Yet, not all members of this group are equal in their strength.

Updated January 2, 2022 by Rei Penber: T.he Worst Generation have been making waves in One Piece’s New World ever since the new era of piracy began. With the war of Wano, several members of this group are already aiming to make it to the top. The war against two of the Yonko means that some members of the Worst Generation have shown to the fans why they’re considered to be among the most dangerous pirates in the entire world. With the latest events having shown the fans even more of their strength, we’ve ranked the Worst Generation accordingly.

12 Apoo Is The Least Impressive Member Of The Group

One Piece Scratchmen Apoo

Apoo is the captain of the On-Air Pirates. At some point during the timeskip, he submitted to Kaido. He is quite a powerful fighter, and has powers that allow him to hurt his enemies using Fighting Music.

Apoo possesses great endurance, as he tanked a Lion’s Song from Zoro and then proceeded to fight X Drake. However, his attacks by him certainly aren’t that impressive and are easy to counter, making him one of the weakest members of the group.


11 Basil Hawkins Has A Tricky Ability Up His Sleeve

Over the years of leading the Hawkins Pirates, Basil Hawkins has amassed a bounty of 320 million berries. Many consider him extremely dangerous consindering his Wara Wara no Mi powers. He can tie his strawmen to anyone’s life, and use that to his advantage of him in battle.

While Hawkins might not be the most impressive physically, he’s certainly one of the most deadly fighters that one can face in battle. Nobody would want to go up against him.

10 Capone ‘Gang’ Bege Has Impressed In The Cake Island Arc

Capone Gang Bege One Piece

Capone ‘Gang’ Bege hails from the West Blue and is one of the most dangerous pirates on the seas, with an impressive bounty of 350 million berries on his head. Bege joined the Big Mom Pirates during the timeskip, and worked his way up to the rank of Rook.

On Big Mom’s Tea Party, he attempted to assassinate her; however, his attempt of him failed. Nonetheless, Bege is extremely impressive in combat, and his Shiro Shiro no Mi powers make him a force to be reckoned with.

9 X Drake Has The Power Of An Ancient Zoan Fruit

X Drake Of The Beasts Pirates One Piece

X Drake is a secret member of the Navy and served as a Rear Admiral at one point. Now, he is currently a member of the secret organization known as SWORD. At some point, he became a pirate to infiltrate the Beasts Pirates and attained a bounty of over 100 million berries.

During the two-year timeskip, X Drake became a Headliner of Kaido’s Beasts Pirates and joined the Tobiroppo as well. He is exceptionally skilled as a fighter and his Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Allosaurus power makes him incredibly dangerous to take on in battle.

8 Jewelry Bonney’s Devil Fruit Makes Her Incredibly Dangerous

South Blue’s Jewelry Bonney is an extremely powerful pirate and among the strongest Worst Generation members of whom fans have seen very little thus far. She had a bounty of 150 million berries before the timeskip, which goes to show that she’s a very impressive figure.

Bonney possesses an unnamed Devil Fruit power. With it, she is able to alter anyone’s age however she wishes with simply a touch. She can easily turn her foes into old husks, or reduce them to a mere baby if she so wishes. This makes defeating her in combat extremely difficult.

7 Urouge Defeated A Sweet Commander On His Own

The captain of the Fallen Monk Pirates, Urouge is also a part of the Worst Generation. Before the timeskip, he had a bounty of 108 million berries, which was the lowest among the Eleven Supernova.

After the timeskip, Urouge infiltrated Totland and faced off against Sweet Commander Snack, whom he defeated in battle. He was then defeated by Cracker; however, Urouge’s feat di lui is still very impressive and makes him one of the strongest members of the group.

6 Killer Fought Kaido And Big Mom On The Rooftop

The First Mate of the Kid Pirates, Killer is an extremely powerful fighter who took part in “The Clash of the Monsters” on Onigashima. Along with other Worst Generation members, he fought Kaido and Big Mom, and fared well against them.

He is currently fighting against Basil Hawkins and appears to be quite a match for him. Killer’s true power remains unknown, but he’s certainly a worthy member of the group.

5 Roronoa Zoro Has The Power To Scar Kaido

Roronoa Zoro is the swordsman of the Straw Hat Pirates, and is known as the Pirate Hunter. He aims to become the strongest swordsman in the world by defeating Mihawk – a goal for which he must grow extremely powerful. Zoro proved himself on Onigashima by scarring Kaido with his strongest attack di lui, called Dead Man’s Game.

Although Kaido defeated Zoro, he’s back at full power now and is fighting against King the Wildfire. This was one of the most incredible fights in one piece after the two-year timeskip. Although Zoro struggled against King initially, he managed to tap into the true power of Enma by allowing it to absorb as much Haki as it possibly could, allowing him to use techniques that were on a completely different level. With just a few blows, Zoro toppled a man worth 1.390 billion berries, which just goes to show that he’s one of the strongest Worst Generation members. The only downside of Zoro’s power is that he can’t maintain it for long.

4 Trafalgar Law Is Fighting Big Mom

Ope Ope no Mi Trafalgar Law

Trafalgar Law has proved himself to be one of the most impressive fighters in One piece. On Onigashima, he was key to the survival of the Worst Generation members. He proved himself against Kaido by being able to penetrate his defenses di lui without much effort. What’s more, Law is the strategist of the group, and the mastermind behind splitting Kaido and Big Mom up.

Trafalgar Law teamed up with Eustass Kid in the Wano County arc to take down Yonko Big Mom in the Wano Country arc, and the two have been doing a decent job by the looks of it. In the midst of the war, fans got to see Law awaken his Devil Fruit. Given that the Ope Ope no Mi is called the Ultimate Devil Fruit, it is easy to see that its awakening is incredible. With its power of him, Law can coat his sword in a sphere of energy called “KROOM” and use it to damage his opponents internally without making any incisions, using techniques such as Shock Wille. Clearly, the best of Trafalgar Law is yet to come.

3 Eustass Kid Is Fighting Big Mom With Law

Eustass Captain Kid Of The Worst Generation

South Blue’s Eustass Kid had a bounty of 315 million berries shortly before the two-year timeskip, and it has risen to 470 million since then. Kid is extremely powerful and holds the power of the Jiki Jiki no Mi. He also has all three Haki types, rare among pirates in the world of One Piece. He fought Kaido and managed to damage him by crushing him with his power di lui. He’s currently engaging Big Mom in combat on Onigashima, and has been just as impressive in this fight Trafalgar Law, if not more.

Like Law, Kid has awakened his Devil Fruit and damaged Big Mom using its power. The awakening of the Jiki Jiki no Mi allows Kid to turn others into magnets instead of using his body di lui as the magnet. Kid was able to turn Big Mom into a magnet using the “Assign” ability of his fruit. Consequently, every scrap of metal was immediately attracted to Big Mom, and Kid then crushed her with tremendous pressure using Punk Clash. While it wasn’t enough to take her down, it showed the fans a glimpse of what one piece‘s Worst Generation can do.

Luffy smiling in Episode 982

Luffy is an exceptionally powerful pirate, known as the Fifth Emperor of the Sea. With the power of the Gomu Gomu no Mi and three advanced Haki types, Luffy is extremely difficult to take on in battle. On Onigashima, Luffy was able to pummel Kaido and even match his hybrid form of him without any gears active. Luffy’s true power of him is yet to be seen, and he’s already strong enough to compete with a Yonko. As the main protagonist of one pieceLuffy is essentially as strong as a Yonko now, and he’s sure to only grow stronger.

Luffy has come far in the Wano Country arc, and has gone from losing to Kaido in a single hit to matching him in battle. He has managed to learn how to use the advanced form of Ryuo to destroy things from the inside. At the same time, Luffy can also use the advanced form of Conqueror’s Haki, called Conqueror’s Haki Infusion. By coating his body di lui in this Haki, he was able to fight even Kaido on an equal footing. During his fight against Kaido, he was able to split the heavens apart by clashing his own Haki against the Yonko’s.

1 Blackbeard Is Already A Yonko

One Piece Blackbeard celebrating with his crew

With a bounty of 2,247,600,000 berries, Blackbeard is the newest addition to the Yonko. He acquired this title after defeating the Whitebeard Pirates remnants during the two-year timeskip. Blackbeard has two Devil Fruit powers, which he can use to take on anyone in the world.

He also has access to at least two Haki types, and in the future, he will be Luffy’s biggest rival. It is quite easy to see that Blackbeard is the strongest Worst Generation member right now, simply by his powers and his renown of him.
