  • Luffy’s power reached new heights with Gear 5, surpassing even former enemies like Kuzan and Borsalino.
  • Rayleigh, once stronger, was defeated by Luffy after the Wano Country arc, showcasing his immense growth.
  • Big Mom and Kaido, former Emperors, were overthrown by Luffy, who now stands as an Emperor himself.



Luffy has hit unprecedented heights in One Piece’s Final saga, having recently become an Emperor of the Sea. He awakened the power of the Gomu Gomu no Mi recently, and, with that, he was able to access Gear 5, which he believes to be his peak.


One Piece: 8 Characters Who Are Masters Of Both Devil Fruit And Haki

These One Piece characters are masters at using both haki and devil fruit powers.

As a Yonko, Luffy is incredibly strong, capable of fighting against even the elites of the One Piece world and defeating them in combat. Of course, Luffy has had to come a long way to reach this level and he has surpassed quite a lot of powerful individuals along the way already. These are strong individuals who were once levels above him, and now, they find themselves below him in terms of power, influence, and just about everything else in the One Piece world.

8 Kuzan

The 10th Ship Captain Of The Blackbeard Pirates

Aokiji arrives at Punk Hazard

A former Admiral of the Marines, Kuzan is currently the 10th Ship Captain of the Blackbeard Pirates. He was once an enemy to Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates and he collided with the crew on Long Ring Long Island. Expectedly, he utterly destroyed the crew on the island that day, and in his fight against Luffy, he was the one who emerged victorious.

Kuzan also engaged in combat against Luffy in the Paramount War, and back then, he was stronger. Right now, however, he is not strong enough to defeat Luffy or even match him in combat.

7 Borsalino

One Of The Three Marine Admirals

Borsalino was the man partially responsible for the destruction of the Straw Hat Pirates on the island of Sabaody. Back then, he was far stronger than every single member of the group put together. Right now, however, he is not strong enough to match Luffy in combat.

While he can certainly rival him to a certain extent in an elaborate battle, he doesn’t have the strength required to defeat Luffy. Luffy has surpassed him ever since he awakened the power of Gear 5, and that is clear for the fans to see.

6 Dracule Mihawk

The World’s Strongest Swordsman

Dracule Mihawk

The World’s Strongest Swordsman, Mihawk is quite a powerful individual who not many can face and battle in defeat. At one point in the series, Mihawk was overwhelmingly stronger than Luffy, and he fought against him in the Paramount War, trying his best to kill him. Of course, back then, he was on an entirely different level.

Now, however, the tables have turned. Luffy is stronger than Mihawk at this point in time, and he has already surpassed him in every aspect of battle, infamy, and authority.

5 Sakazuki

The Fleet Admiral of the Marines

One Piece Magu Magu no Mi Sakazuki Devil Fruit Magma Marine Admiral Logia

Fleet Admiral Sakazuki is certainly one of the most powerful individuals in the One Piece world. He possesses the power of the Magu Magu no Mi, which is a Logia type of Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into magma, as well as produce and manipulate it at will.

He also has great control over Haki, as was evident from his showing in the Paramount War. Sakazuki is certainly very strong, and fans have seen his incredible displays of strength on many occasions. However, he has already been surpassed by Luffy, thanks to Gear 5, and overwhelmingly strong Haki. Sakazuki can certainly hold his own against Luffy in battle, however, it is clear that Luffy is levels above him now.

4 Rayleigh

The Right Hand Man Of Roger

The Dark King, Rayleigh is a monstrously powerful individual, even in his old age. He was the right-hand man of the former Pirate King, Gol D. Roger, and an incredible user of all three types of Haki. Rayleigh is quite powerful, and up until recently, he was still stronger than Luffy.


One Piece: 6 Characters Who Can Copy Other Devil Fruit Abilities

These characters have shown the skill to copy other characters’ power in One Piece.

However, ever since the climax of the Wano Country arc, Rayleigh cannot match Luffy any longer. Luffy has already surpassed him in combat long ago, and the difference between them will only grow further.

3 Big Mom

One Of The Yonko Of The Sea

Big Mom powering herself up with her own Devil Fruit.

The former Yonko of the Sea, Big Mom is one of the most powerful individuals in the One Piece world. Being an Emperor herself, Big Mom was levels above Luffy during the Whole Cake Island arc, and even in the vast majority of the Wano arc.

However, once Luffy awakened his Devil Fruit and unlocked the power of Gear 5, along with gaining the ability to infuse Conqueror’s Haki, he not only matched Big Mom, but also managed to surpass her in combat. Luffy ended up ripping both Big Mom and Kaido from their throne in Wano, and became an Emperor of himself.

2 Kaido

The Strongest Creature In The World

Kaidou After Falling From A Sky Island

Luffy fought against Kaido in the Wano Country arc, and even though he ended up losing to him three times, in the end, he did win. His victory only came after he nearly died and awakened the power of the Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika. As that happened, Luffy managed to combine this power of his Devil Fruit with his amazing Haki that he had mastered to an advanced level.

These things were way too much for Kaido to counter and, eventually, he ended up losing his battle against him. Luffy surpassed Kaido towards the end of Wano, and the difference in their strength has only grown since then.

1 Kozuki Oden

The Legendary Samurai Of Wano

One Piece Kozuki Oden Twin Swords

The legendary Samurai of Wano, Kozuki Oden was one of the few individuals that Kaido believed to hold legendary strength. In fact, he was the only one before Luffy who could have killed Kaido and that just goes to show what incredible power he possessed.

Oden had great control over all three Haki types, and this alone made him a monstrously powerful individual. Luffy surpassed Oden towards the end of the Wano Country arc, when he finally defeated Kaido, thanks to the awakening of the Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika.
