Seven Warlords of the Sea after Timeskip, Ranked

Seven Warlords also known as Shichibukai is a group of seven extremely fearsome pirates allied and backed by the World Government.

One Piece had introduced various powerful & fearsome characters throughout the series and the Seven Warlords are the most notorious among them. Seven Warlords of the Sea are among the Three Great Powers on the Ocean. They work with the World Government and in return, the World Government freezes their Bounties and turns Blind Eye towards their felonious crimes. After Time skip of two years, a lot of things changed and some new Notorious Pirates earned their title as one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. Let’s take a look at the list of Seven Warlords of the Sea after Time skip and find out who is the strongest member.

NOTE: Characters are ranked as per the strength they possessed when they served as the Warlord.

7. Buggy the clown

Buggy the Clown is among the first few foes faced and defeated by Luffy. He is the comic figure and not worthy to hold the title of Warlord. He was a former member of Roger Pirates when he was just a child. Though being a former member of Roger Pirates he isn’t anywhere close to their league. He happened to fight beside Luffy in the war at Marineford and his connection with Gol D. Roger was revealed, which was enough for the World Government to offer him the position of a Warlord. Buggy was the new and the weakest member among the Seven Warlords of the Sea after timeskip

After the Warlord system was abolished, Buggy allied with Crocodile & Mihawk and thus was declared one of the four emperors of the sea. Somehow things work in his favor and all of his achievements are sheer luck. He struggles to keep up with other warlords in terms of strength and hence he is the weakest warlord in the entire series.

Weevil claims to be the biological son of the Former Emperor of the Sea, the legendary pirate Edward Newgate also known as “Whitebeard”. He is too dumb but he possesses immense strength and endurance. Admiral Kizaru himself stated that he possesses enormous strength which can be compared to that of Whitebeard in his prime days. He was the last member to join the Seven Warlords of the Sea after timeskip

 He single-handedly destroyed 16 Pirate crews who were once the allies and followers of Whitebeard. His mother Miss Buckin claims to be the lover of Whitebeard and them being Whitebeard’s biological family, she manipulates Weevil to hunt down all the former allies of Whitebeard to claim all the fortune for their own. After the warlord system was abolished, the World Government sent marines to capture Weevil, but all of them were wiped out. In the end, Admiral Ryokugyu himself had to capture him. Even though he possesses enormous strength he lacks intelligence and can be defeated easily by his fellow warlords.

Boa Hancock is the snake princess and the ruler of Amazon Lily. She is the captain of Kuja pirates also known as the Pirate Empress. She is among the few pirates who can use all three types of Haki especially “Conqueror Haki”. 

The reason she joined as the Warlord was to use her title to keep Amazon Lily safe from other Pirates. She was the member of Seven Warlords of the Sea after timeskip as well. Boa Hancock ate the Love-Love fruit which gave her the ability to turn anyone who fell for her charm into the stone. During the battle at Marineford, she took down the Pacifistas at ease and was also able to hold Vice Admiral Smoker to help Luffy save Ace. She is undoubtedly among the strongest pirates and can go toe to toe with her fellow Warlords. 

4. Kuma

Kuma is among the most ruthless pirates and thus was known as the “Tyrant”. He is a cyborg and has the power of Paw-Paw fruit which is capable of causing massive destruction. He is originally a member of The Revolutionary Army and is working as a double agent for them. 

Kuma was one of the strongest foes Strawhats ever faced and he was capable of defeating them easily without even using his powers to the full extent. He was later turned into a Pacifista by Dr. Vegapunk by the order of the world government. Kuma being a cyborg along with his Paw-Paw fruit abilities makes him an extremely formidable opponent. 

3. Trafalgar Law

Trafalgar Law is the captain of Heart Pirates. He is one of the strongest members of the Worst Generation and is also known as the “Surgeon of Death”. He possesses the power of the Ope-Ope fruit which allows him to control everything in the room. 

He was among the Seven warlords of the sea after time skip. He joined as a Warlord by offering the hearts of 100 Pirates to the World government. However, his title was later revoked for allying with the Strawhat Pirates. He was a former member of Donquixote Pirates and the reason he joined as a warlord was part of a bigger plan to take down Doflamingo. Law has mastered the use of his devil fruit’s power which makes him a formidable opponent.

2. Donquixote Doflamingo

Doflamingo was the King of Dressrosa and the captain of the Donquixote Pirates. Besides that, he was also a member of Seven Warlords of the Sea and was known as “Heavenly Demon”. He was one of the most fearsome pirates in the entire One Piece. He ate the String-String fruit which allowed him to create and control strings strong enough to cut the opponent at ease. He was also capable of manipulating other people like a puppet. He was the most brutal and cold-hearted among the Seven warlords of the Sea after timeskip

He also operated as an underworld broker of drugs, weapons and artificial devil fruits. With the ridiculous power of String-String fruit, he snatched the throne of Dressrosa from King Riku. With his awakened devil fruit, he was a force to be reckoned with. He was one of the most ruthless pirates in the entire series. 

1. Dracule Mihawk

Dracule Mihawk was the very first warlord to appear in One Piece. He holds the title of the “World’s Strongest Swordsman” and is known to be the rival of Red Haired Shanks who is one of the Four Emperors of the Sea. 

Dracule Mihawk aka “Hawk Eye” is a master of Observation and Armament Haki. He possesses one of the supreme-grade blades named “Yoru”. Mihawk is one of the main antagonists Zoro will fight in future. With his Top Tier Haki, Battle experience and Black Blade, he undoubtedly stands at the top among the Seven Warlords of the Sea after timeskip. 


1. Why was the warlord system abolished?

Blackbeard is the strongest warlord so far, followed by Dracule Mihawk to be the second strongest warlord. 

3. Who is better Shanks or Mihawk?

Luffy has defeated Buggy in the Orange town Arc, Crocodile at the end of Alabasta Arc,  Gecko Moria in the thriller Bark Arc, and Doflamingo in the Dressrosa Arc.
