The Worst Generation is a group of extremely powerful pirates who made their first appearance in the Sabaody Archipelago just before the Marineford Arc. All Worst Generation members had a bounty of over 100 Million Berries before the times skip and are quite notorious. Later the group was joined by Blackbeard forming the Worst Generation.
After the Time skip, all Worst Generation members got stronger causing a lot of Havoc in the New World. However, not all members are equal in strength. In this article, we ranked all 12 Members of the Worst Generation.
12. Scratchmen Apoo
Scratchmen Apoo belongs to the Longarm tribe. He is the captain of On-Air Pirates with a bounty of 350 Million berries. He possesses the power of Oto Oto no Mi, a paramecia-type devil fruit which allows him to turn his body parts into musical instruments and play them. Apoo can launch a physical attack on anyone who hears his music catching the opponent off guard. However, his attacks aren’t that strong and can be tackled easily by covering the ears or using earplugs. Hence Apoo is the weakest of all Worst Generation Members and is at the bottom of the list of Worst Generation ranked by strength.
He formed an alliance with Eustass Kid and Basil Hawkins to take down Emperor Kaido, but ended up betraying them & later joined the Beast Pirates. However, he isn’t truly loyal to Kaido as well. He possesses good strength and endurance since he was able to survive even after fighting CP0 and other Worst Generation members. Despite all that, Apoo is still weak compared to fellow members of Worst Generation.
11. Basil Hawkins
Basil Hawkins is among the most fearsome pirates from the North Blue with a Bounty of 320 Million Berries. He is the captain of the Hawkins Pirates and part of One Piece’s Worst Generation Members. He ate the Wara Wara no Mi fruit which belongs to the paramecia class. Hawkin’s devil fruit allows him to create and control straw at will. His devil fruit powers may seem to be useless at first but he has a tricky technique up his sleeve. He can create straw dolls and store them in his body. Each straw doll can be linked to a specific person. As a result, if Hawkins is wounded by an opponent, he can transfer the damage received to him to another person to whom his straw dolls are connected. However, as soon as he runs out of straw dolls, it becomes quite easy to defeat him. In comparison to all Worst Generation Members, Hawkins lacks raw strength and durability which becomes his major drawback.
Basil Hawkins is also a Magician. He read Tarot cards before taking any major decision which had certainly helped him to make it this far. After entering the New World, Hawkins formed an alliance with Kid and Scratchmen Apoo. However after Kaido attacked them, he joined Beast Pirates since it was his only option to survive. In the Wano arc, he was defeated by Zoro and later lost against Trafalgar Law. Despite all these defeats, he is quite a formidable opponent on the battlefield.
10. Capone Bege
Coming from the West Blue, Capone Bege is the captain of Firetank Pirates. By eating the Shiro Shiro no Mi he became a Castle human. His devil fruit turned him into a living fortress. He is capable of holding his subordinates along with weapons like canons within his body. Before becoming a pirate, he was a mafia don. He is quite impressive in combat and a good strategist as well, which is why his bounty is worth 350 Million berries.
During the Time skip, he joined Emperor Big Mom intending to take her down. In the Whole Cake Island arc, he allied with the Strawhats to assassinate Big Mom. His defensive abilities are quite impressive. His Godfather technique turned him into a huge moving castle and was strong enough to take a few blows from Big Mom. Regardless of his strong defensive abilities, his offensive abilities aren’t good enough. Despite all that, Capone Bege is still one of the strongest of all worst generation members.
Urouge is the captain of Fallen Monk Pirates also known as “Mad Monk”. Among all 12 members of the Worst Generation, Urouge is the only member who is native to the Sky Island. During Sabaody Arc, his bounty was worth 108 Million Berries. He possesses the power of a paramecia-type devil fruit which remains unnamed until now. However, fans were able to have a glance at his devil fruit’s power in Sabaody Arc. Urouge’s Devil fruit grants him the ability to boost his physical strength from the damage he takes. However, we are yet to see its full strength.
After the time skip, Urouge invaded the Totto Land which falls under Big Mom’s territory and defeated one of the four Sweet Commanders, Charlotte Snack who was worth 600 Million Berries. Later, Urouge was defeated by Charlotte Cracker, one of Big Mom’s Sweet Commanders. Despite that, he successfully escaped and survived. Considering his raw strength and strange devil fruit powers, he is undeniably one of the strongest fighters among all Worst Generation members and is quite a formidable opponent.
8. Jewelry Bonney
Jewelry Bonney is one of the most fearsome among One Piece’s Worst Generation members. She was born in the South Blue and had a bounty of 150 Million Berries on her head before the time skip.
