One Piece series began with the execution of the most powerful character, The Pirate King, Gol D. Roger. After that, fans have witnessed many strong and thunderous characters in the series so far, but no one was as strong as Roger. Even the most prominent names like Monkey D. Garp, Edward Newgate, and Rocks D. Xebec were on the same level, but no one could ever defeat Roger in one on one counter. But if you notice, Oda sensei has already introduced some characters who could or will conquer Gol D. Roger in a straight match. These characters may only overwhelm Roger when they are at their peak position. So, without any delay. Let’s begin with the names of these characters who can overpower Gol D. Roger in the One Piece series.
Characters who can overpower Gol D. Roger in One Piece-
We already know that Joyboy was the first Pirate who reached the final island, Raftel, 800 years ago. There is no doubt that he was the strongest Pirate at that time. If we talk about theories, Joyboy was from the Ancient Kingdom and played a significant role during the fight in opposition to the 20 allied nations.
Based on the theories, the World Government has kept his Giant Straw Hat as the National Treasure to display their victory against the strongest kingdom. His ship, Noah, was the second-largest ship in this series and was pulled by the Sea Kings. If he had been alive during Roger’s era, then he would have the potential to overpower him. Oda sensei has still not unveiled the true meaning of this Giant Straw Hat, the National Treasure, and the story of Joyboy; therefore, we are concluding only on the assumptions.
- Monkey D. Luffy:
Monkey D. Luffy, captain of the Straw Hats pirates, our hero and protagonist in the One Piece series, would surpass Roger at the end of the series. Here we are not talking about the current Luffy. We know that in the future, when Luffy will become the next Pirate King, then he will definitely overpower Gol D Roger. In order to achieve the title of the Pirate King, he will become the strongest Pirate in the entire history.
In the current arc, he has already mastered Gear 4 of his Gomu Gomu No Mi and challenged one of the Yonko, Kaido, for one on one fight. Kaido is known as the current strongest creature, and if Luffy overwhelmed him. Then he will reach the level of Yonko. According to the fans, during the greatest war in anime history, Luffy will become the most potent Pirate and challenge the World Government. So, according to us, Monkey D. Luffy, at his peak, will defeat Gol D. Roger.
Poseidon is one of the three ancient weapons, which means that she has the power to destroy the world. We have already witnessed in the Fishman Arc that how much she is powerful. She can control and order Sea Kings, and they all are willing to die on behalf of her. If we compare Poseidon and Roger based on their stories, we cannot comprehend any difference in their power. They both are equally powerful, but controlling the Sea Kings, gives Poseidon an advantage over Roger.
Now the query arises, Roger could also control the Sea Kings with his Conqueror Haki. Therefore, the answer to the problem is that even he could not terminate the entire army of the Sea Kings with his Conqueror Haki. Conqueror Haki has its limitation too. So, this makes Poseidon superior to Gol D. Roger.
There is no need to be panic. Momonosuke is also one of the legends. As Oda sensei mentioned in the series, Momonosuke is the son of Kozuki Oden and Lady Toki. Lady Toki was the most mysterious character in the One Piece series. She revealed that she has the Toki-Toki No Mi, and she came here from the past searching for Oden. The real identity of Lady Toki is still unknown to us. Maybe she was from the void century, and she came to give birth to Momonosuke.
Momonosuke has some hidden potential, as on the Zou island, we have witnessed how he commanded Zunisha. It was interesting to see that only Roger, Oden, Luffy, and Momonosuke heard the voice of Zunisha, but among them, only Momonosuke was the one who could command it.
Zunisha is from the Ancient Kingdom, and as a punishment for some crime, it was only allowed to walk in the sea for eternity. Only a true King can break its sentence and commands it. In the Zou island, Oda sensei has displayed that Momonosuke is the reincarnation of some King from the Void Century. Based on this incident, some predictions have also made that another ancient weapon, Uranus is Momonosuke. But these are all just theories, but we sure that Oda sensei will unveil the true power of Momonosuke in the future, and one day, he will definitely surpass Roger.
- Marshall D. Teach, a.k.a. Blackbeard:
Blackbeard is the most important character and the known antagonist of the One Piece series. There is no doubt with the power of the two most vigorous devil fruit; no one can defeat Blackbeard in a straight fight. We know that fans are now assuming the past of the Blackbeard that Whitebeard already defeated him, but, in the end, he was the one who killed Whitebeard and ate his Gura Gura No Mi. After that, in the usage of the two strongest devil fruit, he easily won the Payback War by crushing Marco’s army. But the most overwhelmed characteristic of Blackbeard is constructing plans. The story of Blackbeard has already demonstrated in the series how he started as an apprentice and how he ended up becoming the Yonko.
We still don’t know Blackbeard’s ability to manage the power of two devil fruit in his body. According to Shanks, Blackbeard never sleeps. It shows that his body has some deformities, which allow him to grant the power of two devil fruits at one time. The time has come in the series when Blackbeard will gain more power, maybe the power of another devil fruit. But at his peak time, he will overpower Gol D. Roger.
Therefore, here is the list of the characters in One Piece who can or will overpower Gol D. Roger. The characters are selected based on our personal opinions. There are many more characters who also have the potential to become the strongest. Hence, now it’s up to Oda sensei how he exhibits the position of these characters in the future of the One Piece series.
