One Piece chapter 1103 brings back the narration to the events currently taking place in Egghead. As the latest chapter in 2023, the issue concludes another year of serialization for Eiichiro Oda’s popular manga. This thread will thereby list the 100 most powerful One Piece characters, ranking them from weakest to strongest.

The list is based on feats, powers, and all known information as of One Piece 1103. Given that characters can change their overall power depending on whether they are in their old or prime incarnation, as well as according to transformations and upgrades, the ranking will only include each fighter's strongest version.

Characters ranked higher are generally more powerful than those listed below, especially if the comparison is between fighters of different tiers. Granted, given the many different abilities included in the series, including Haki, Devil Fruits, and more, some hypothetical 1v1 battles might have unpredictable outcomes.

Disclaimer: This article contains major spoilers from the One Piece manga up to chapter 1103 and reflects the opinion of the writer.

One Piece's powerscaling, explained

Given the potential interactions between various characters and their different skillsets, it's not always straightforward to assert that a fighter is stronger than another in One Piece.

Still, taking into account each fighter's feats and overall status in the One Piece world, it's possible to obtain a clear overview of the established power levels of the series. At the top of the food chain, there are godly figures whose actual capabilities are shrouded in mystery.

Needless to say, the Pirate King and the few who could compete with him have paramount status. The same holds true for the benchmarks of the main protagonists, as the true power of these iconic characters is kept aside for the story's endgame.

The large top-tier class follows, encompassing Emperors, Admirals, and those who attain that outstanding level or come close to it. Below is the high-tier class, which ranges from the mightiest to the most average representatives of the Yonko Commanders category. It also includes the majority of the Warlords.

Further down are other executives of the main pirate crews and outlaw groups, as well as the World Government and the Navy. All of them are accomplished fighters, far above the New World's average standard, which is already a high degree in its own right.

One Piece's cast is immense, featuring hundreds and hundreds of different characters. As a result, many remarkable fighters, despite their combat skills, couldn't make it to this selection of the 100 strongest One Piece characters. These include Basil Hawkins, Vergo, Pica, Izo, Ronse, Doll, Strawberry, Vasco Shot, Catalina Devon, X Drake, Lindbergh, Capone Bege, Franky, Who's Who, Nico Robin, and many more.
