The East Blue is commonly known as the weakest of all the seas.
Pirates who are considered great and threatening in this sea are regarded as low rate compared to pirates from the other seas and especially in the Grand Line. Ironically, despite its poor fame, the East Blue was the birthplace of the most powerful pirate of all time, the late Pirate King Gol D. Roger.
Here’s the list of the 10 strongest known characters from East Blue:
In his first appearance, Coby lacked any fighting skills. He gained some fighting skills when he trained under the Marine Hero Monkey D. Garp. After two years, he reached the rank of Captain.
Due to his harsh training regime under Garp as well as further training after two years, Coby possesses immense physical strength and speed. He has shown himself to be an excellent swimmer. He can move incredibly fast even when underwater, as he caught up to a torpedo within seconds. With his strength, he was capable of redirecting the large torpedo underwater with his bare hands.
Since his training with Garp, Coby has become strong enough to use at least one of the Rokushiki, the Soru technique.
During the Battle of Marineford, Coby awakened Kenbunshoku Haki. After the timeskip, Coby has developed his Kenbunshoku Haki to the point that it is on a very advanced level.
Bartolomeo is a Super Rookie, the captain of the Barto Club and the captain of the second ship of the Straw Hat Grand Fleet.
He’s physically extremely strong and skilled in hand to hand combat.
Bartolomeo ate the Bari Bari no Mi, a Paramecia type Devil Fruit which allows him to be a Barrier Human. He uses his Devil Fruit powers both to protect himself and attack his opponents. His barriers are seemingly indestructible.
His barriers are far from being restricted to defense, as he can utilize them in various versatile ways. He can send the barriers forward with great force to smash or crush his enemies, or alter their shape to form platforms.
Van Augur, nicknamed “The Supersonic”, is the sniper of the Blackbeard Pirates. He is currently one of the Ten Titanic Captains and the captain of the Third Ship of the Blackbeard Pirates.
Van Augur is shown to have great speed in shooting and running.
He also demonstrated superhuman endurance for his thin figure as he endured one of Whitebeard’s Gura Gura no Mi shockwaves (albeit not a direct hit) and Fleet Admiral Sengoku’s shockwaves with the rest of the Blackbeard Pirates.
Van Augur is easily one of the greatest master marksmen in the entire series. With his favorite rifle Senriku, Augur is able to fire bullets over tremendous distances with extraordinary accuracy.
Bentham is a very powerful martial artist and a master of a unique, dance-based martial arts style known as Okama Kenpo, which combines forceful and acrobatic kicks and sometimes punches with ballet dancing.
Due to his extremely hard training in Okama Kenpo, which Bentham described as painstaking, Bentham has incredible superhuman physical prowess and an extremely high level of agility.
Bentham ate the Mane Mane no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows him to turn into someone who he touches. When he changes, he can also perfectly replicate the copied person’s flexibility and strength.
Sabo is the Revolutionary Army’s chief of staff, recognized as the “No. 2” of the entire organization, ranking directly under Monkey D. Dragon himself.
After joining the Revolutionary Army, Sabo was personally trained by Monkey D. Dragon and attained tremendous physical prowess by adulthood. He has become a master of the Ryusoken fighting style, which revolves around the use of grips, which he refers to as “claws”.
Sabo is the current user of the Logia-type Devil Fruit, the Mera Mera no Mi, which originally belonged to his brother Ace before his death. With it, Sabo is able to become the element of fire and control the flames from his body at will.
Sabo has shown incredible mastery of Busoshoku Haki, which he can imbue into his arm or his pipe. He is also highly skilled in the use of Kenbunshoku Haki.
