If you have watched One Piece or you’re currently watching anime then you know that Conquerors Haki users are the strongest characters in the whole of One Piece. When the series began the main power source for the characters was their Devil Fruits but after the time skip, the power scenario in the series shifted from Devil Fruits to Haki.
There are only a few characters in One Piece who can use Haki; in those users, there are fewer Conquerors Haki users. But what is Conqueror Haki? Who has it? If you haven’t watched One Piece yet then these questions might bug you a lot but don’t worry we are here to explain this to you. So without wasting time let us begin with a simple definition of Conquerors Haki.
Understanding Conquerors Haki
Haki is your spiritual energy. There are three forms of Haki. The first one is observation haki which allows you to predict the opponent’s moves. The second one is Armament Haki which hardens your skin so you can block your opponent’s attacks. You can learn these two forms of haki by doing some training but Conquerors Haki is different.
Conqueror Haki is the ability to overcome other’s powers and intimate them, this ability cannot be learned by training. Only a few individuals who are chosen to be leaders have this ability by birth. So it is clear that Conquerors Haki Users are one of the strongest characters in the series.
Let us now look at all those characters who can use Conquerors Haki.
Conquerors Haki Users in One Piece
Here are some Conquerors Haki users in one piece:
1. Gol D. Roger
In the first place, we have the pirate king himself, Gol D Roger. He is one of the best Conquerors Haki users in the entire One Piece. During his whole life span, Roger didn’t possess any Devil Fruit yet he conquered the world and became the pirate king using his tremendous Haki only.
Not only Conquerors Haki but he also can use Advance Conquerors Haki which shows that he is worthy of having the highest bounty in the entire One Piece till now. Though there are not many instances where we can see Roger fighting at his best and utilizing his conqueror’s haki at best.
The first time we saw Roger using his tremendous Haki was when he fought with Kozuki Oden and Edward Newgate aka Whitebeard, these two moments were alone enough to prove that Gol D Roger is one of the best conquerors haki users in the entire One Piece.
2. Silvers Rayleigh
Also known as the Dark King, he was the right-hand man of Gol D Roger, and just like his captain he also doesn’t have any Devil Fruits. This made Rayleigh use his Haki to its best possible form. All these factors made Rayleigh aka the Dark King become one of the best Conquerors Haki users.
He was first introduced in the Sabaody arc in which he knocked out various members in the auction hall by using his Conqueror Haki. And in the recent episode 1088, we saw that Rayleigh Frightens Yonko Blackbeard by using his Conqueror Haki. Despite being old Rayleigh is one of the best Conquerors Haki users from the old generation.
Marine Hero Monkey D. Garp said during the Marineford arc that the Navy couldn’t deal with two legends at the same time. Here two legends include Whitebeard and Rayleigh. This shows how strong was Rayleigh in his prime.
3. Edward Newgate
Famously known as Whitebeard, when he was alive he was given the title of strongest man alive and he held this title even when he was suffering from a life-threatening disease. This shows he was one of the best Conquerors haki users in One Piece. It was said that Whitebeard was the only man who could rival Gol D Roger in terms of strength.
It took a total of 100,000 marine soldiers along with several vice admirals, all the admirals, and all the seven warlords to stop only one single man which was Whitebeard himself. All these things were enough to prove that Whitebeard was one of the best Conquerors Haki users in the entire One Piece.
Alongside his tremendous Haki, Whitebeard also possesses Tremor-tremor fruit which is one of the most destructive devil forces in the one-piece world because this fruit can break reality. But Whitebeard never used this fruit to its full extent because he knew that if it was used at its full potential, it would also hurt his comrades. This shows he is one of the best-written characters in the one piece.
Next in the list we have is Kaido also known as the strongest creature alive. This is because he possesses Mythical Zoan Uo Uo no Mi, Model: Seiryu this devil fruit allows Kaido to transform into a dragon which makes him a menace in the fights. On top of this overpowered Devil Fruit Kaido also has a mastery over all Haki forms.
All these things are a testament that he is one of the best Conquerors Haki Users in the entire One Piece. Kaido is by far the strongest foe that Luffy has faced till now in the anime because he knocked out Luffy 4 times and forced him to awaken his devil fruit.
He can also use advanced forms of all the Haki forms and he can even infuse his Conquerors Haki in various moves like Thunder Bagua or Ragnaraku. He also has one of the largest crew in the entire One Piece. That is why he has the highest bounty in one piece after the death of Whitebeard. There is no doubt he is one of the strongest Yonko.
5. Charlotte Linlin
At number 5 we have Charlotte Linlin also known as Big Mom, she is one of the cruelest and strongest pirates in the entire one piece. Her Conqueror Haki is so strong that she knocks out various people while being unconscious which shows that she is one of the best Conquerors Haki users in the one piece.
Her bounty was 4,338,000,000 berries which was only second to Yonko Kaido. Overall this brilliant power she has one of the most lethal Devil Fruits which was Soru Soru No Mi, which allows her to control other souls as well. She also has one of the biggest crews in One Piece because she has 85 children from 433 husbands.
Just like Kaido and other Yonkos, she can also use advanced forms of all the Hakis. All these things testify that she is one of the best Conquerors Haki Users in the entire One Piece.
The formal fleet admiral Sengoku also known as The Buddha is one of the strongest marine characters to ever live in One Piece. In terms of strength, he is equal to Roger and Whitebeard which shows the might of this previous marine admiral. This proves that he is one of the best Conquerors Haki users in the whole marine.
Alongside his tremendous Haki Sengoku also possesses an OP Devil Fruit which is Hito Hito No Mi, Model: Daibutsu which allows him to transform into a giant Buddha and transmit huge shockwaves to opponents. All these things are a testament that he is one of the best Conquerors Haki Users in the entire One Piece.
Sengoku is one of the two marines in this list which shows how rare the ability is conquerors haki is that only certain chosen individuals have them throughout the one piece. However, it is a fact that Sengoku has not even once used his full might because he is more of a tactician rather than a fighter.
7. Monkey D. Garp
Those who have watched One Piece know very well that Garp is the strongest marine in the entire One Piece. He is so strong that he has been offered the position of Fleet Admiral several times but he has declined the promotion every time because he does not want to work directly under the command of celestial dragons.
As you can guess from Garp’s full name he might have some relation with the protagonist Monkey D. Luffy then those of you who don’t know we would like to tell you that Garp is Luffy’s grandfather hence it is very much clear that despite of old age he is a very strong character in one piece.
Garp does not have any devil fruits despite this he is one of the strongest characters in the story this shows that he possesses a great mastery over his Haki. He is one of the two marines (the other being Sengoku) who can fight on equal terms with the likes of Pirate King Roger and Whitebeard. All these things show that Garp is one of the best Conquerors Haki users in one piece.
8. Kozuki Oden
Oden was the strongest samurai to ever live in the Wano country. He was born exceptionally strong and since then he has grown a lot in power. Some of you might not know that in Wano Haki is known as Ryou. So it is safe to say that Oden has a complete mastery over his Ryou.
Kozuki Oden is so strong that he is the only character who has given Kaido a permanent scar and as we know Kaido is one of the best Conquerors haki users hence giving him a scar is quite a difficult task this shows that he is one of the best Conquerors Haki users in the One Piece.
Kaido stated that there are only a few characters to exist or existed that can beat him in a battle and Oden is one of them. If the fight between Oden and Kaido were not interrupted then Oden would have defeated Kaido. All these things are a testament that he is one of the best Conquerors Haki Users in the entire One Piece.
Popularly known as “Red-Haired Shanks”, the captain of Red-Haired Pirates is one of the strongest Conquerors Haki Users in One Piece, we have said this because we have a lot of points that prove that he is one of the strongest Conquerors Haki users in One Piece.
There are not many instances in the story where we have seen Shanks in the action. Despite having a low screen time Shanks has never failed to impress us with his Conquerors Haki. In recent episodes, we have seen that Shanks stopped an admiral from attacking Momonosuke and Akazya Nine despite being far away from them. All he did was release his Conquerors Haki.
And his clash with Whitebeard was so strong and effective that it split the sky into two parts. All these things are a testament that he is one of the best Conquerors Haki Users in the entire One Piece. Hope we will see some more action from Shanks in the upcoming One Piece chapters.
10. Don Chinjao
Don Chinjao character was introduced during the Dressrosa Arc. He is one of the legendary pirates of his generation with over a 500 million bounty over his head. Which states that he was very proficient in fighting during his days. During his fight with Luffy, he displayed his proficiency in all three Haki forms.
But he lost to Luffy rather easily. This shows he was not one of the best Conquerors Haki Users in One Piece. However, some instances from his life show that he was a formidable foe because he fought Garp on equal terms during his early days as a pirate.
11. Portgas D. Ace
Also known as Fire Fist Ace, he was the second division commander of Whitebeard Pirates. During the Marineford arc, it was revealed that Ace is the son of Pirate King Gol D. Roger. As we know Conquerors Haki is sometimes hereditary and in the case of this father-son duo, this thing is true which means that Ace is one of the Conquerors Haki users as well.
There was only a single instance when we saw Ace using Conqueror haki that too unconsciously and there is no other instance in which we have shown that Ace can use any form of Haki. This is because Ace was killed before the time skip, and as we told you earlier before the time skip the focus was more on Devil Fruits than Haki.
But it is pretty understood that being the second division commander of Whitebeard Pirates Ace would have been proficient in all the haki forms.
12. Eustass Kid
The captain of Kid Pirates, Eustass Kid is also a member of the worst generation. This showcases that he is one of the strongest pirates in the New World. During the Wano arc, Kaido revealed that Eustass Kid is also one of the Conquerors Haki users but sadly we have not seen Kid using his Conquerors Haki.
However, this thing doesn’t mean that Kid is weak. The Kid has the power Jiki Jiki No Mi, which is an overpowered devil fruit in One Piece world. Moreover, Kid has good observation and armament haki in his arsenal.
Former celestial dragon, Doflamingo is one of the seven warlords of the sea this means that he is a force to reckon with. Having the power of Ito Ito No Mi makes Doflamingo a total maniac in fighting. With the help of his strings, he was able to manipulate others very easily.
Doflamingo was one of the most loved villains in One Piece yet. Just like Ace, Doflamingo also used his Conqueror Haki when he was a kid unconsciously. However, during his fight against Luffy, he was not able to use the advanced form of Conquerors Haki which means that he was just one of the average Conquerors Haki users.
14. Charlotte Katakuri
The second son of Big Mom, Katakuri is one of the three sweet commanders of Big Mom pirates which means that he is a formidable opponent for anyone. Just like Roger and Ace, Katakuri also inherited the power of Conquerors Haki making him one of the Conquerors Haki users in One Piece.
Having the power of Mochi Mochi No Mi made Katakuri a complete menace in fights because he can use all Haki forms very well. The most lethal weapon that Katakuri has in his arsenal is his Observation Haki because he mastered his observation Haki to such an extent that allowed him to look further seconds into the future.
He can also use the advanced form of Conquerors Haki, though he was not that much familiar with advanced forms of Conquerors Haki. All these things are a testament that he is one of the best Conquerors Haki Users in the entire One Piece.
15. Boa Hancock
Amazon Lilly’s Princess and captain of legendary Kuja Pirates, Boa Hancock is the most beautiful female character in the entire One Piece without any doubt. With the powers of Mero Mero No Mi, she can petrify anyone who gets in love with her beauty and honestly, there are very few characters in the story who haven’t been amused by her beauty.
It has been said many times in the story that Boa is also one of the Conquerors Haki users but it has not been seen even once in the story. However, it is safe to assume that she is one of the exceptional Conquerors Haki users because she was one of the seven warlords of the sea. All these things testify that she is one of the best Conquerors Haki Users in the entire One Piece.
Just like some other users in this list who are Conquerors Haki Users because of their parents, Yamato is also one of the Conquerors Haki Users because she got Conquerors Haki from Kaido. Yes, you heard us right Kaido is the father of Yamato, though her mom has not been revealed yet.
Yamato is a very strong character and one of the best Conquerors Haki Users because she has fought Kaido her whole life for freedom and this allowed her to polish her skills to a great extent. We have seen Yamato using many advanced Conquerors Haki attacks during her fight with Kaido.
During the fight at Onigashima Yamato was able to hold back Kaido for several minutes when Luffy was unconscious this shows that she is a very strong character in One Piece.
17. Roronoa Zoro
The right-hand man of Monkey D. Luffy, Zoro is the unofficial Vice-captain of Strawhat Pirates. Zoro is one of the most loved characters in the One Piece. He is a swordsman who uses a three-sword style which was invented by Zoro himself. With a bounty of 1,111,000,000 berries, Zoro is a force to be reckoned with.
Zoro has recently unlocked his Conqueror Haki amid the battle between him and Kaido, but still, he is unconscious about his Conqueror Haki. But during his sword fight with the right-hand man of Kiado, King the Wildfire. This sword fight is one of the best sword fights in anime.
Most of the right-hand men of strong pirate crews are Conquerors Haki users, so it is safe to assume that in the future we will be witnessing more Conquerors Haki moments from Zoro.
18. Money D. Luffy
Now at last we have the main protagonist of One Piece, Monkey D. Luffy. Various incidents showcase that Luffy can use Conqueror Haki. Whether it’s about taming beasts or knocking down 50,000 fishmen at once fluffy can do most of the legendary stuff with his conquerors haki now.
However, it took him a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve this. Luffy can even use advanced forms of all the haki forms, which is possible because he has faced a lot of formidable foes during the entire One Piece. All the fights have made Luffy able to use advanced forms of all Haki forms.
Awakening of Gomu Gomu No Mi gives Luffy another form which is known as Gear 5, in this forms luffy can use advanced forms of all the haki forms and most importantly he can coat his entire body in advanced Conqueros Haki which gives him a huge amount of strength. All these things are a testament that he is one of the best Conquerors Haki Users in the entire One Piece.
