#8 – Basil Hawkins
Basil Hawkins known as the “Magician” is the captain of the Hawkins Pirates and. His previous known bounty amounted to 249,000,000 Berries, but after the timeskip it was raised to 320,000,000 Berries. After encountering Kaido, he joined the Beasts Pirates and became one of the crew’s Headliners.
Hawkins ate the Wara Wara no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that enables him to redirect any instances of physical damage inflicted upon him to another person using straw voodoo dolls, leaving him unharmed but forcing his victim to take damage amounting to what he would have. The Devil Fruit also enables him to transform into a giant scarecrow-like entity, resembling a giant voodoo doll, with metal nails functioning as claws/fingernails.
Hawkins has great skill in swordsmanship supplemented with his Devil Fruit powers. He wields a sword created out of the straws produced by his power, allowing him to form a flexible yet sharp whip-like single-edged blade.
#7 – Roronoa Zoro
Zoro is an extremely powerful master swordsman, being able to use one, two, and three swords in varying attack styles. He has immense superhuman physical prowess, particularly his strength and agility.

Zoro has extraordinary mastery of Busoshoku Haki. After he received Enma in Wano, Zoro’s mastery in Busoshoku Haki is further shown when he forces his Haki back into his arm that was forcefully drained by Enma.
