The Grand Line has been home to many strong pirate crews, but none so strong as the Roger Pirates. Roger Pirates were led by the Pirate King, Gol D. Roger, himself. It was the first crew that successfully managed to conquer Grand Line, and the voyage made Roger the Pirate King.
There are many things about this crew that are still a mystery. We still don't know the true power of some of the main members of this crew. However, it is undeniable that it was arguably the strongest pirate crew that sailed the seas. In this post, we are going to discuss all the known members of Roger Pirates.
11 Gol D. Roger
Roger was the captain of the Roger Pirates. He was arguably the strongest man alive. According to Sengoku, Rocks D. Xebec was the fiercest rival of Roger. Roger continued to fight against the strongest opponents en route to becoming the Pirate King. There is no information about him possessing a devil fruit. All that is known about is Roger is that he possessed the Voice of All Things. Everyone who fought against Roger has the deepest respects for him including the Marines. Roger died after being beheaded at Logue Town. It is unclear why Roger turned himself in.
10 Silvers Rayleigh
Silvers Rayleigh is a very well known pirate. He is just as popular as his captain, Gol D. Roger. Silvers Rayleigh is easily one of the most powerful characters in the series. He is capable of using all three types of Haki. Rayleigh can even use advanced Armament and Observation Haki. He taught Luffy how to use Haki after the war of Marineford was over. Despite his old age, Rayleigh is still capable of going toe-to-toe against an Admiral. Kizaru clearly said that he lacked the power to capture Rayleigh alive.
It's hard to believe that Shanks once used to be a powerless brat. Before the Roger Pirates disbanded, Shanks used to be an apprentice on the ship. Shanks was seen in several flashbacks when he was young and fighting alongside Buggy.
After Roger's death, Shanks created the Red Hair Pirates. Shanks clashed with Dracule Mihawk many times and their duels were considered nothing short of legendary. He gained fame rapidly and became a Yonko at a very young age. He became a Yonko six years ago. Shanks is one of the most powerful characters in One Piece. He is also among the few characters that are able to use all three types of Haki.
Next up on the list is Buggy. Buggy is a legendary character who epitomizes Oda's writing skills. Buggy was also a part of the Roger Pirates. He was an apprentice just like Shanks. The two of them are still very good friends although Buggy hates Shanks for accidentally making him swallow a devil fruit, which took away his ability to swim. Buggy possesses the Bara Bara no Mi, that allows him to split his body into many parts. After the Paramount War, Buggy became a member of the Shichibukai due to his reputation.
Crocus is the second Roger Pirate member that the Straw Hats met. He spent most of his life as a lighthouse keeper, but he joined Roger Pirates as a doctor for three years. According to Rayleigh, Crocus is an extremely special doctor. He was considered the only doctor capable of keeping Roger's condition stable. It was due to Crocus's efforts that Roger was able to survive until they conquered the Grand Line. After Roger's death, Crocus returned back to Twin Cape and began to look after Laboon.
6 Scopper Gaban
Among the known Roger Pirates, Scopper Gaban is probably the one with the lowest info. He sailed with Roger until they finally reached Raftel. Then after the disbandment, Scopper Gaban left without any trace.
He was also present during the Edd War when Roger fought Shiki. Scopper Gaban seems like one of the stronger members of the Roger Pirates. We haven't seen him fighting any war(except Edd War). In the future, we will definitely get to see Scopper Gaban's abilities.
5 Douglas Bullet
Douglas Bullet is the latest member to be introduced in the series. Douglas Bullet is the main antagonist of One Piece: Stampede. He is considered to be a Yonko level character. Douglas Bullet's strength is said to rival that of the Yonko themselves. Douglas Bullet possesses the Gasha Gasha no Mi. It is a very powerful devil fruit as it allows him to combine any inanimate objects together. However, we don't know whether Douglas Bullet is a canon character or not.
Nekomamushi is one of the two leaders of the Mink Tribe. He is known as "Ruler of the Night." He is a very powerful character as he was able to fight toe-to-toe against Jack, who is one of Kaido's disasters. Nekomamushi doesn't have a devil fruit, but he is still capable of fighting against the top dogs.
As a Mink, Nekomamushi can naturally use Electro. Adding to this, Nekomamushi also has a Sulong mode, but it hasn't been revealed yet. Nekomamushi was originally on Whitebeard's crew, but then he joined Roger Pirates.
Inuarashi is the other ruler of Mokomo Dukedom alongside Nekomamushi. Inuarashi is called "Ruler of the Day" as he looks after the kingdom during the day. Just like his feline compatriot, Inuarashi is a very powerful mink. He was easily able to fight against Jack. Inuarashi also has access to Sulong, but like every mink, he can only use it when the conditions are right. Inuarashi has served in two of the strongest pirate crews in history. He and Nekomamushi served under Kozuki for Whitebeard Pirates and then Roger Pirates.
2 Kozuki Oden
Kozuki Oden was the daimyo of Kuri when he was still alive. He was respected by everyone in Wano. Oden served as a division commander in the Whitebeard Pirates. But, he then joined the Roger Pirates and sailed with them to Raftel. Oden was a very strong swordsman. He had two Meito swords— Ame no Habakiri and Enma. Enma is the last weapon that was able to hurt Kaido in a fight. Another testament to Oden's strength is that he was able to beat Ashura Doji, who could easily hold off Jack.
The final known member of the Roger Pirates is Seagull. There is very limited information available on his Seagull and his abilities. We can assume that he was a powerful pirate as he was part of the Pirate King's crew. After the crew disbanded, Seagull disappeared as well. His current whereabouts are completely unknown.
