Two years before the current storyline, eleven Super Rookies arrived at Sabaody Archipelago almost simultaneously. Collectively, they are known as the “Eleven Supernovas“.
These eleven, alongside Blackbeard, were considered to be the Worst Generation to ever come to existence, due to their individual actions bringing great (or terrible) changes to the world, leaving deep and lasting impacts.
They are obviously all very powerful individuals, let’s see who they are:
#12 – Jewelry Bonney
Jewelry Bonney is the captain of the Bonney Pirates and prior to the two-year timeskip had a bounty of 140,000,000 Berries. Bonney exhibits unexplained abilities that appear to come from a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that involves age manipulation. She can alter the ages of herself and others, rapidly aging her intended targets into their senior years or regressing them into small children. As a result of this ability, accurately determining her true age is difficult.
#11 – Capone “Gang” Bege
Capone Bege, is the captain of the Fire Tank Pirates. He ate the Shiro Shiro no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit which allows him to create and maintain a dimensional fortress inside his body. He can house a massive force of subordinates within his body, as well as horses and cannons. He manifests these objects outside his body by first manifesting ports and drawbridges on his person through which his “troops” could come out. He can also transform into a gigantic fortress shaped golem with immense defensive power.
#10 – Scratchmen Apoo
Scratchmen Apoo is the captain of the On Air Pirates and an informant for the Beasts Pirates.
Apoo has a Devil Fruit ability based on music. Within seconds, he is able to morph parts of his body into various instruments he can play. By playing specific notes and tunes with specific instruments, Apoo releases soundwaves that, apart from seeming to have a hypnotic effect, can instantly deliver different forms of physical (e.g. slashing or explosive) damage to anyone who hears them, determined by what instrument he plays. Additionally, Apoo seems able to limit his music’s effects to specific targets of his choosing. Post-timeskip on Onigashima, Apoo was able to injure both Luffy and Zoro in succession, leaving the former briefly unconscious from a single attack, by capitalizing on their lack of understanding (and knowing how to guard against) his powers. However, Zoro was ultimately able to take down Apoo with a single, decisive surprise attack using his Ittoryu.
As noted by Killer, Apoo’s attacks carry anywhere in hearing range, and as long as his music is heard by his chosen target, its effects are nigh-instant and unavoidable; since the only “traveling” part of Apoo’s attacks is the sound itself, they lack any detectable trajectory, and the speed of effect is enough that extremely fast adversaries are unable to react.
The decisive weakness of Apoo’s ability is that if one blocks one’s ears (even just by covering them with one’s hands) before the sound hits, one becomes immune to his techniques (something notably facilitated by the ability to see the future), although such efforts to block out sound tend to inhibit Apoo’s opponents from being able to fight properly. Additionally, if one is outside the seemingly predetermined range of the sound (i.e. hearing range) in the first place, one will also be safe. As a result, Apoo’s powers seem best-suited for use against first-time opponents or in surprise attacks.
#9 – Killer
“Massacre Soldier” Killer is a member of the Kid Pirates. His style of fighting seems to rely mainly on agility and speed, which he uses to overpower his opponent before they can strike him, or to dodge attacks. He was capable of fighting head on with the fellow Supernova Urouge, though the latter had not increased his muscle mass. Killer is seen using a pair of scythe-bladed weapons attached to his armbands that are capable of spinning around or being used as hand scythes. This, combined with the agility he has so far displayed in combat and the notion that he is not afraid to kill, makes him a formidable foe. At Wano, Killer was forced to eat a failed SMILE and later became known as the assassin “Kamazo”. He was capable of fighting head on with Roronoa Zoro at Wano Country.
