The Yonko are the four most powerful pirates in the world of One Piece. Introduced first by Garp shortly after the Enies Lobby arc, the Yonko was described to be four pirates who rule the New World and the second half of the Grand Line, like Kings, with no one willing to oppose them directly. To help them stand out, a partnership between the Marines and the Shichibukai was required, which allows for forks to reach their potential. After Whitebeard''
After a two-year skip, Luffy fought against the Navy''s rulers. Two of the Yonko, Big Mom, and Kaido, fell, resulting in an era of conflict. The World Government voted to select the four most famous pirates in the world, including Shanks, Blackbeard, Luffy, and Buggy.
The New Yonko Of The New World
Shanks is the oldest person out of the current Four Emperors, despite achieving a point 6 years prior to Luffy''s departure. Despite his seemingly dominant arm, Shanks became a Yonko somehow, despite having lost his apparently dominant arm. As such, he has the highest active bounty from the current Yonko, which includes 4, 089,100,00 berries. Shanks is an incredibly powerful pirate and his crew, the Red Hair Pirates, is known to be the
All of his officers are said to be quite solid, making him the most capable from the Four Emperors. Blackbeard, on the other hand, rose to this position after completing the payback battle against the Whitebeard Pirates during the two-year timeskip. After crushing them and claiming all of their territory, Blackbeard became finally given this position. Having solidified himself as one of the most powerful people on the seas and obtained a 2.246 billion berries.
Monkey D. Luffy and Buggy have been added to the ranks of the Yonko since the beginning of the story, and over the years, Luffy has become an extremely powerful pirate. In the Wano Country arc, he gained mastery over his Conqueror''s Haki and awakened his legendary Devil Fruit, called Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika. With these powers, he defeated Yonko Kaido and became one of the Sea''s most powerful
Buggy, on the other hand, is a rather impressive addition to their ranks. While on paper, he is quite weak and could not even stand up to a mere Yonko Commander. Besides, Buggy is a former member of the Roger Pirates, but he has a huge influence in the world. At the same time, he acquired countless powerful allies, some of whom were from Level 6 of the prison. However, his current bounty isn''t known.
The Parallel To Volume 25
Eiichiro Oda, the author of One Piece, is known for his spectacular foreshadowing, and with the current Four Emperors, he has shown this skill once more. One Piece''s 25th volume, titled "The Hundred Million Man," saw Oda draw Luffy, Shanks, Blackbeard, and Buggy on the cover. Little did fans know that these four figures will be a pivotal part of the story''s final plot.
Fans knew that Oda''s exact same characters would play a crucial role in the final scenes of the novel, which will start from chapter 1054, and will be published after one-month hiatus.
Fans have spent decades watching Shanks in action and with the final scene now on the horizon, their wishes will finally be granted as the red-haired man finally makes his move. At the same time, Blackbeard will be Luffy''s natural enemy, paralleling his light with his dark.
Blackbeard wants to become the Pirate King just like Luffy and will most certainly stand in his way at some point in time. Buggy, on the other hand, has had a history of failing upwards. It wouldn''t be surprising if he even acquired the One Piece or, at the least, discovers all the world history. The current Four Emperors will certainly define a new era and pave the way for the end of One Piece.
