Top 5 Younko Commanders
The Yonkous are known and feared as the Supreme Leaders of the Seas (In the New World). Which is why they require Strong
Individuals to oversee their different territories as well as attack Anyone that Dares to trespass these strongholds. Moreover,
since the One piece manga and Anime have come a long way (22 years and counting), I feel Now’s the time to unveil my Top
5 Yonko Commanders which will be based entirely on their Strengths, Bounty (if they have any), Status in the One-Piece
Universe and finally their Devil Fruits (if they have one ). Also, they will be Spoilers ahead. So for anime folks, this is where the
road ends (or you can just read the manga and catch up). Finally, I will be listing them in a descending order to raise everyone’s
expectations of who will be my Number 1 pick. So without further delay, here are MY Top 5 Younko Commanders
Number 5: Jack the Drought Bounty (Bounty 1 Billion Berries)
The first time this guy made an appearance in One Piece, I knew things were going to get sweet in terms of Action for the story.
So why does he come in at Number 5 on my list? It’s simply because of one thing which is his astonishing Endurance. Look,
Jack is the best when it comes to taking damage head-on (in my opinion). He did this twice in the story when he made the
impulsive decision to take on the island of Zou. A country filled with strong fighters called Minks, that are headed by Two
beasts which are Dog Storm (Inuwarashi) and Cat Viper (Nekomamushi). This scuffle went on for 5 days with the two
leaders subbing In and Out every now and then. But this wasn’t enough to quench his thirst for battle because not long after that
incident, he goes back to Sea in order to intercept the fleet, that was transporting the Charismatic King (Donqixote
Doflamingo) to Impel Down. Even though this Convoy was heavily guarded by the Marines which included top executives
such as Sengoku the Buddha (Former fleet admiral) and Fujitora (A current admiral), Jack still had the Guts to attack the
ship Head On with full Confidence?. In addition to all his achievements, he is the only Devil fruit user currently known in
the One piece Universe that’s capable of surviving underwater. Which is as a result of him being a Fishman. Thereby giving
him an edge over other devil fruit users while at sea. Its quite clear Jack deserves his bounty of 1 billion berries which is why
he places at Number 5 on my list. However, to be a great Yonko commander, one must be able to take damage and also dish
out blows. Which brings me to the next Yonko commander on my list.
Number 4: Charlotte Katakuiri (Bounty 1.05 Billion Berries)
The formerly Undefeated champion comes in at Number 4 on my list for he’s Great fighting skills. He’s also the second
person to push Luffy past he’s limit in the new world as well as, display amazing honor while in combat (checkout my Luffy
VS Katakuri review here). Also, the reason why I placed him over Jack is simply because of his outstanding Observation
Haki. If you subtract that, Jack beats him in every other category (in my opinion). Nonetheless, if you put he’s amazing
observation haki and awesome fighting techniques, I think he’ll come out victorious in that fight (Since the battle will be
over quickly). However, it’s still debatable because Jack has Excessive Endurance so it’s still possible for him (Jack) to keep
on fighting just like luffy in order to win (after all he fought against a country for 5 days without resting). But let me know what
you think in the comments(). In addition, he’s conquerors Haki and amazing devil fruit gives him an edge in most fights
(since it’s a special Paramecia that’s awoken). Which is why he comes in at 4th place on my list.
Now it’s just my personal Bias but I feel the Zoan Devil Fruits, are the best devil Fruits to own. I’ll discuss this on a later post.
However, this is going to be the reason I choose my next Younko Commander as number 3 on my list.
Number 3: King the Wild Fire (Bounty Unknown)
King the WildFire is indeed a Force to be Reckoned with. Since he took out the entire Big Mom fleet with the flip of his neck.
Which he did by using his amazing Devil Fruit: The Ryu-Ryu-no-Mi Ancient Zoan Devil fruit, Type Dinosaur and
Model: Pteranodon (AKA a flying Pterodactyl). Which was revealed in chapter 930 The reason I respect Zoans above all
other Devil fruit types is simply the fact that they can take immense amounts of Damage while fighting. Also, if you look at the
number of blows Jack received in Zou and at sea by the Admirals, imagine how kings Endurance will be??. Moreover, King
can fly and wields a sword so it will be very hard to land a hit on him. As of this moment, we are still yet to confirm the full
extent of his Devil fruit abilities (since Wano is Still Ongoing) however just knowing these things about him, is enough to place
him as number 3 on my list.
But get this
Having the best kind of Devil fruit doesn’t always guarantee one Victory in battle. Because my Second top Yonko commander
is one who didn’t have any Devil fruit in the past but was still able to conqueror his victims with an iron hand.
Number 2: Shiryu Of the Rain (Bounty Unknown)
Before Shiryu of the Rain became a Younko Commander for the Black Beard pirates, he was formerly stationed at
Impel Down as the former Head Jailer. And We all saw what a force Magellan (the current head jailer of impel down) was to
Luffy and company. So you can imagine how Cruel and Bloodthirsty Shiryu was for him to be terminated of his position. In
addition to all that, he’s an accomplished Swordsman who now possesses the Suke Suke no mi which turns him completely
for a quick moment, the Potential this gives him and where he stands in terms of Power level in the one-piece universe. Some
might argue that opponents such as Katakuri who have Amazing Observation Haki would be able to see him coming from a
mile away. But I beg the differ cause if you apply the fact that one is able to Awaken their Devil fruit, coupled with Shiryu’s great
swordsmanship, then he might become a Behemoth in the future. And he’ll probably faceoff with Zoro who by then, will be
known all over the new world as the Greatest swordsman by the end of the series. However, we will have to wait and see if this
all comes True or Not.
Number 1: Marco the Phoenix (Bounty Unknown)
I stressed earlier on that Zoans (to me ) are the Best Devil fruits, someone in the one piece universe can acquire. Well, it
should also be known that Zoans are split into several types. However, the 3 main ones that are normally seen and have the most
Destructive capabilities include The Carnivorous Types (Rob Lucci) The Ancient Types (King) and Mythical Types
(Marco). Furthermore, it’s also rumored that the mythical devil fruits are Rarer to obtain than Logia Devil Fruits?. Which is
going to be my Main reason for making Marco my number one pick as Top Younko commander because he possesses the
Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix Mythical Zoan Devil Fruit. Which grants him increased Physical attributes as well as
the ability to Regenerate by transforming into a Phoenix. Meaning the only way to deal damage to is by having Tremendous
Haki (like Garp ) or an Insane devil fruit (like Blackbeard) to compete with him.
Moreover, Marco is the only Known survivor of the Whitebeard pirates. Who were decimated by Marshall D Teach, who has
a bounty that’s over 2 billion berries( seen in chapter 925). And, possesses the Two strongest devil fruits known (the
Gura Gura no mi & Yami Yami no mi). So, if there’s something Marco has over other Younko commanders is
Experience.Due to the fact he was able to tangle with a Yonkou (which other commanders are yet to do) and come out Alive.
Right now he is currently keeping a low profile, however, I’m sure he’s going to make a comeback sooner or later because a
Phoenix can never Know Defeat since every time they fall, they Rise Again from their Ashes.
My Final Thoughts
As far as Younko Commanders go, they are many Honorable mentions I could have called out such as Ben Beckman for
example. However, my decision was Heavily centered on what we currently know in the Manga and Anime. Also, just because
most of my top Yonkou commanders have insane devil fruits or amazing accomplishments, doesn’t mean they are not prone
to defeat from other characters in the Series. Nonetheless, if you were to match all the Yonkou commanders against one another
in a tournament (just the ones currently known), I feel the ones listed above will be my top 5 picks and quite frankly, the
ones I’ll be willing to bet My money on to Win the contest.
However, that’ll be all for my Top 5 Younko Commanders. So let me know what ya’ll think about my choices in the comments
below. Do you think the Top 5 Yonkou commanders listed are the best ones in the series OR, you have your own list that tops my
list hands down? Moreover, if you enjoyed what you read, feel free to share it with your friends, loved ones or anyone that’s
stoked about One piece (like me ). Also, if your interested in Japanese artifacts, check out my review of J-List Japan and
