One Piece: All Known Members Of The Rocks Pirates, Ranked By Strength The Rocks Pirates are one of the strongest pirate crews in One Piece to have ever sailed the seas. Here”s our ranking of them.
The Rocks Pirates are one of the strongest pirate crews in One Piece to have ever sailed the seas. Around 40 years prior to the current events of the story, the Rocks Pirates were famed as the strongest pirate crew in the entire world, comprised of some strong pirates who went on to become the beacon of power for the next generation. 38 years ago, this crew was utterly destroyed when Marines and the Roger Pirates allied to take them down and succeeded.

Despite the defeat, the members of this crew were unfazed and only went on to get stronger in the coming years. Here are all the known members of the Rocks Pirates ranked by strength.
Also known by the name of Wang Zhi, Ochoku was one of the most infamous pirates of his generation, having caught the attention of Sengoku among many other Rocks Pirates members. Almost everything about him remains unknown, which is why he is at the bottom of this list. Eiichiro Oda, One Piece”s creator, could possibly reveal more information about Ochoku as we move forward with the story, and as such, he can definitely go higher up the list.
Interestingly, Ochoku (Wang Zhi) was based on a real-life pirate Chinese pirate, also known as Wang Zhi, who terrorized the seas back in the 16th century. If Ochoku was anything like the person who he”s inspired from, he was likely a lethal pirate.
Much like Ouchoku, Silver Axe is another character who was never properly introduced in the One Piece series. According to Sengoku Silver Axe was a formidable pirate, and after the Rocks crew split up, he got stronger and made a name for himself going forward. It must be noted that “Silver Axe” is likely the epithet of the pirate and not his real name. Therefore, the name of this pirate is likely still not known to the fans.
When it comes to strength, Silver Axe was one of the pirates who made a name for themselves in the New World, which means he must”ve been significantly stronger than your average pirate. The fact that he survived on a crew filled with monsters indicates that he was no weak person.
Another one of the rather mysterious members of the crew, Captain John joined the Rocks Pirates seeking fame, just like any other pirate. He was strong enough to survive on this barbaric crew, the members of which were always at each other”s throats. Although John”s actual power will likely remain unknown forever, we do know that he was famous for possessing some of the greatest treasures in the entire series.

Buggy, one of the former Shichibukai, was actively looking for his treasure at one point, although it is unknown whether he found them or not. After John”s death, he was turned into a General Zombie by Moria at Thriller Bark.
Kaido joined the Rocks Pirates at an unspecified time, though this happened likely about 40 years prior to the current events of One Piece. Kaido was an apprentice on the ship of Rocks, and likely one of the weakest members of the crew. It is unknown if he still possessed his Devil Fruit powers at the time.
After Rocks split up, Kaido went on to gather his own crew, most of which joined him solely upon seeing his majestic strength. Over time, Kaido”s strength reached a point where he became one of the Four Emperors of the Sea. He also managed to gain the title of “the strongest creature in the world”, implying that he”s nigh unbeatable.
Famously known as the Golden Lion, Shiki was also a part of the Rocks Pirate crew in the past. Under their Captain, Shiki excelled as one of their strongest fighters, and after the disbanding of the crew post the captain”s death, Shiki gathered more power and infamy. By the time of Roger”s era, Shiki grew so much in power that he was a direct rival to the future Pirate King himself!
Furthermore, he commanded the largest Armada in the entire Grand Line at that time, making him an indomitable force for anyone to deal with. Shiki famously fought both Garp and Sengoku at Marineford, destroying half of the place in the process, and gravely injuring the Vice-Admiral in battle.
Linlin joined the Rocks Pirates about 40 years prior to the beginning of One Piece and was one of its strongest members. She was a born monster, which is evident from the fact that she utterly destroyed a village in Elbaf at a mere age of 5. According to Mother Carmel, Linlin had the potential to be a Fleet Admiral of the Marines, and this was before she even ate a Devil Fruit!

Charlotte Linlin was likely the third strongest member of the crew at the time. Interestingly, she was already a mother by this time and many of her children were already born. In the following years, Linlin got even stronger, to the point where she went on to become one of the Yonko and formed her own country, known as Totland.
Most likely the second strongest member of the crew at the time, Edward Newgate was an active member of the Rocks Pirates, although knowing his personality, he likely only joined the crew to be able to gain wealth to supply to his village. After the Rocks Pirates split up, Edward Newgate got even stronger than he was before and gained the title of “Whitebeard” before he formed his new crew 5 years after the God Valley incident.
In time, Newgate became a great pirate, strong enough to be called Gol D. Roger”s equal in strength and renowned as the only man who could match him in battle. According to Garp, Whitebeard was the “King of the Seas”, while Sengoku said he had the power to “destroy the entire world”.
The Captain of this barbaric crew, Rocks D. Xebec was a fearsome pirate who aimed to become the King of the entire world in One Piece. His power was such that not even the World Government could avoid feeling tensed. Rocks was very powerful, and taking his crew down required the combined effort of Marines and the Roger Pirates, which speaks volumes about his strength.
What”s more, he was described by Sengoku as one of Roger”s greatest enemies ever, making him possibly as strong as prime Roger and Whitebeard. Ultimately, Rocks died without fulfilling his ambition, but his crew lives on and even now, they”re few of the strongest on the seas out there, carrying the legacy of the Rocks forward.
