One Piece is a long-running anime series that's all about pirates. In the series, pirates are hunted down by members of the World Government and their Marines. However, some pirates are too tough for the government or its soldiers to handle on their own. In response, the government will issue a Bounty for the capture, or death, of a particularly powerful pirate.
We're going to talk about the pirates who currently hold the 10 Highest Bounties in the One Piece world. We won't include any characters with unknown Bounties. Instead, we'll focus on the individuals who are currently worth the Highest amount of Berries, the main form of currency in the series.
10 Charlotte Snack (600,000,000 Berries)
The Tenth Highest Bounty in the One Piece series belongs to a strange man named Charlotte Snack. Snack is the member of the Charlotte Family, a dangerous group of pirates with food-based powers.
Snack is the Minister of Fries. Contrary to what his title and his parentage might imply, Snack doesn't use french fries to do battle. Instead, Charlotte Snack uses a gigantic katana when it's time to throw down. Though Snack doesn't possess any Devil Fruit powers, he still has a bounty that's higher than the likes of Portgas D. Gas and Whitebeard! That's both fairly impressive and somewhat disappointing.
9 Sabo (602,000,000 Berries)
Sabo is a childhood friend of Monkey D. Luffy's and Portgas D. Ace's as well as a leader of the Revolutionary Army. Like Ace, Sabo possesses fire-based abilities and an impeccable sense of style. Sabo first officially appeared in Chapter 583 of the One Piece Manga and Episode 494 of the anime.
At the moment, Sabo has the Ninth Highest Bounty in the series. Sabo only manages to edge out Charlotte Snack by 2 million Berries. This is despite the fact that Sabo helps lead a rebellion while Snack hangs out on the One Piece version of Candyland. Funny how things work out sometimes.
8 Charlotte Perospero (700,000,000 Berries)
Yep, we've got another member of the Charlotte Family on the list. Now's probably a pretty good time to mention that multiple members of the Big Mom Pirates hold most of the top spots. In other words, you're going to be reading the word 'Charlotte' quite a bit.
Anyhow, Perospero is the oldest son of the Charlotte clan and the Minister of Candy. Unlike Snack, Perospero possesses the power to control food. Percy can control candy to phenomenal effect. He can create super strong candy constructs on a whim as well as turn people into candy statues. At the moment, Perospero has the Eighth Highest Bounty in the One Piece series.
7 Charlotte Cracker (860,000,000)
Charlotte Cracker is a man of many titles. The pirate with the Seventh Highest Bounty in One Piece is also the Minister of Biscuit as well as the 10th oldest son of the Charlotte Family. However, Cracker's most impressive title might be "Thousand Arms."
Cracker earned the title of "Thousand Arms" thanks to his skills as a master swordsman. Using his blad Pretzel, Cracker has carved down many foes over the years. The man's an artist with a sword, giving multiple members of the Straw Hat Pirates a hard time. Interestingly enough, Cracker hasn't had the chance to cross swords with Roronoa Zoro yet.
6 Charlotte Smoothie (932,000,000 Berries)
Smoothie possesses the Sixth Highest Bounty in the entire One Piece series. She also has the Highest Female Bounty thus far, topping characters like Nami and Robin by a mile. The 14th oldest child of the Charlotte Family is also one the Three Sweet Commanders, further adding to her prestige.
As the Minister of Juice, Charlotte Smoothie can manipulate liquids to lethal effect; get into a fight with this girl and she might wring the fluids out of your body like a dirty rag! Smoothie can also increase her strength and stature by absorbing fluids like Spongebob Squarepants. This femme fatale is definitely not to be trifled with.
5 Jack the Drought (1,000,000,000 Berries)
Finally, a break from the Charlotte clan! Jack the Drought is a member of the Beasts Pirates—not the Charlotte Family, or the Big Mom Pirates, but the Beasts! To be more specific, one of the Three Disasters. A mountain of a man, Jack uses his phenomenal strength to serve Kaido—the 'Strongest Beast in the World.'
As it stands, Jack the Drought has the Fifth Highest Bounty in One Piece. Jack's powers aren't too fancy or flashy; he's able to turn into a giant mammoth thanks to his modified Zou Zou no Mi Devil Fruit. Currently, Jack hasn't fought any of the Straw Hat Pirates.
4 Charlotte Katakuri (1,057,000,000 Berries)
Let's take it back to the Big Mom Pirates. Charlotte Katakuri is the last member of Charlotte clan on our list. Katakuri has a Bounty of 1,057,000,000 Berries on his head—the Fourth Highest Bounty in One Piece history! Not only does this make him the most dangerous member of his family, but it makes him one of the most formidable foes in the series. The Minister of Flour can turn parts of his body in Mochi and control spiritual energy called Haki. Katakuri's one of the toughest opponents the Straw Hat Pirates have faced. The man's so strong that even Luffy spent a long time struggling against him!
3 Queen The Plague (1,320,000,000 Berries)
Queen is another member of the Beast Pirates. Unlike most of the others on this list, we haven't seen Queen fight too much. However, we have seen Queen resist Luffy's Haoshoku Haki/ Conqueror's Haki! Only characters with the strongest of wills can perform such a feat. Even though we haven't seen Queen in action yet, we imagine he's very powerful.
The World Government also seem to think so, as they're willing to pay 1,320,000,000 Berries for his acts of piracy. As of this writing, Queen holds the Third Highest Bounty in the One Piece series. There are only two characters that eclipse him, and they're some of the strongest in anime history!
2 Monkey D. Luffy (1,500,000,000 Berries)
The Second Highest Bounty in One Piece belongs to the star of the show and the leader of the Straw Hat Pirates! Monkey D. Luffy began as a poor boy with a big dream of becoming the King of the Pirates! That dream continues to drive Luffy and motivates him even when things seem utterly hopeless.
A man with a large appetite and a good heart, Luffy continues to grow stronger and change lives wherever he goes. Paradoxically, Luffy is proof that Bounties aren't true measures of one's strength or worth. Early on, Luffy's Bounty was very low. But good old Straw Hat has defeated and continues to beat, numerous opponents with bounties much larger than his own.
1 Blackbeard (2,247,600,000 Berries)
The Highest Known Bounty in all of One Piece belongs to Marshall D. Teach, aka Blackbeard. Teach's Bounty absolutely dwarfs everyone else's, totaling to a staggering 2,247,600,000 Berries! Luffy accolades suggest that Bounties aren't total measures of a person's power. However, Black Beard's achievements reiterate that pirates with high Bounties aren't to be taken lightly.
Teach can do it all; he can use Haki, is an expert with multiple weapons, and possesses two Devil Fruit powers! So far, the only character who's been able to match Blackbeard's might was Edward Newgate, aka Whitebeard. Now that Newgate's gone, it falls to Luffy to eventually beat Blackbeard—if that's even possible.
