All 11 Former Shichibukai Ranked by Their Strength

11 – BUGGY

Buggy the Star Clown is the captain of the Buggy Pirates and a former apprentice of the Roger Pirates. He accidentally consumed the Bara Bara no Mi, a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit which allows him to separate his body parts and control them independently of each other. The abilities gained from this fruit also make Buggy immune to slashing, cutting and cleaving attacks; any such attack just separates him into his component parts, allowing him to reform as needed. Because he is invulnerable to cutting attacks, he could be considered the natural enemy to even the most powerful swordsmen, as seen when he easily survived Mihawk’s extremely powerful slashing ability. In addition, most of his body is capable of flying through the air, with enough force to send a man flying through a wall – with the crucial exception of his feet having to stay grounded.
There are two major weaknesses of his Devil Fruit. The first is that his feet act as an anchor and must remain on the ground even when the rest of his body is airborne. Secondly, despite feeling them at all times, Buggy may lose pieces of his body if they leave his visual range, though once he can see them again he can easily guide them back.

10 – GECKO MORIA

Gecko Moria is a former Shichibukai who resided on the largest ship in the world, Thriller Bark. Moria ate the Kage Kage no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows him to manifest and control shadows as physical beings. It is this fruit that allowed him to build his zombie army by depriving living beings of their shadows and implanting them in dead bodies. Moria can have his own shadow, which he calls Doppelman, fight for him; in addition to being mostly solid and easily changing its form into things like tiny bats, Doppelman cannot be destroyed and will continue to reform. Moria can switch locations with his shadow instantaneously, which he uses to dodge attacks.
Moria can place someone’s shadow inside of someone’s living body, increasing physical power and possibly granting them a fighting technique. He can also grab multiple shadows and insert them into his own body for a power and size increase; the culmination of this is his last resort technique Shadow’s Asgard, where Moria absorbs the shadows from all of his zombies at once. On Thriller Bark, Moria absorbed 1000 shadows at once, giving him a monstrous increase in both size and strength that allowed him to split his ship in half with one punch.

9 – CROCODILE

Crocodile is extremely intelligent and cunning. He has an enormous amount of physical stamina, durability, pain tolerance, speed, resilience and endurance as well.
He ate the Logia Devil Fruit, Suna Suna no Mi, allowing him to become, generate, and manipulate sand. He has mastered his ability to the point of perfection and can turn into sand reflexively if attacked; this became especially obvious after Doflamingo cut his head off while he was distracted.
While in a desert area, his powers make him nearly invincible. Crocodile has the ability to create huge sandstorms, make multiple bladed weapons out of sand, and create quicksand (given the presence of a nearby underground waterway.)
He can also suck all the moisture out of any object, living or non-living, by touching it with his right hand. This ability allows him to utterly destroy his surroundings, killing and macerating any biological substances via dehydration. Crocodile said it himself that he achieved perfection of his devil fruit, this could mean he has awakened it.

8 – JINBE

Jinbe is is officially the tenth member of the Straw Hat crew. Even for a fishman, Jinbe possesses tremendous strength. He is the most powerful fishman seen thus far. He has a massive tolerance for pain: not only was he one of the few people to be able to take a “baptizing” in boiling water in Impel Down without flinching (which is considered an impressive feat), he could also block a direct magma punch from Akainu with his bare hand.
Jinbe is an exceptionally powerful master of Fishman Karate, which he can use to knock away many opponents at once and defeat extremely strong enemies. He also displays the ability to skillfully manipulate water as if it were a tangible cloth through Fishman Karate, even using it to attack from a distance. He can cause devastating damage with this kind of technique, to both people and ships.
Jinbe is extremely skilled in using Busoshoku Haki, as shown when he defended himself against some Big Mom Pirates. He could also fortify his arms and was able to briefly defend against Big Mom’s Cognac. Jinbe possesses the ability to use Kenbunshoku Haki.
