How should a good battle shonen do, One piece has a variety of iconic fights that are complemented by some flashy and exciting finishing moves. A staple of any anime fight, the finishing move idea fuses both brutal power and explicit branding to create some of the most exciting and recognizable attacks ever seen in fiction.
On One pieceThe world, devil fruits, haki, martial arts, robotic enhancements, and some very vague interpretations of physics all contribute to One pieceown colorful gallery of finishing moves. And while rating the power and effectiveness of each is a great discussion in its own right, it’s also really fun to see which finishing moves are the coolest and most memorable.
Monkey D. Luffy’s Gum-Gum Gatling doesn’t have the simplistic and inspiring appeal of a one-hit attack; but what it lacks in short, it makes up for with a raw and visceral spectacle. The Gum-Gum Gatling isn’t often used as Luffy’s finishing move, but it’s the stopping point for a couple of his best fights and most of the action-packed episodes of One piece.
At the end of his iconic battle with Sir Crocodile, Luffy not only invented a new move to defeat a Warlord. He just mustered all his strength and kept hitting until Crocodile broke through the ceiling. The same thing happens in his legendary fight with Rob Lucci when Luffy refused to fall and unleashed a barrage of lightning to send Lucci flying.
9 Hell Memories
Hell Memories is the upgraded version of Sanji’s Diable Jiambe, a kicking attack that uses high-speed friction and passionate intensity to burn Sanji’s opponents in extreme temperatures. Seeing Diable Jiambe for the first time against Jabra was one of the great shows of the Enies Lobby Arc. He captured the imagination by teasing how fast and good kicking Sanji really is.
Hell Memories is a more advanced version that uses Sanji’s own trauma from training to create a kick that engulfs his opponent’s entire body in flames. It’s a gaudy and ridiculous move that does a great job of capturing the imagination and making people love Sanji even more.
8 Three Swords Style Secret Skill: Billion World Trichiliochosm
Roronoa Zoro’s strongest attack to date and one of the most ridiculously named attacks in the anime (and the most rewatched scenes in One piece), the multimillion dollar world triciliocosm is the epitome of samurai bars. Japanese anime and movies are famous for their special style of fencing that idolizes attacks faster than the eye can see, but powerful enough to create clean cuts through bodies, doors, and in Zoro’s case. , a guy made from a whole country.
This move is the result of Zoro summoning all of his strength and haki and focusing it on a singular point between his three swords and slashing so hard that he can practically cut through an entire city.
7 Meteorite volcano
Meteor Volcano was not coined exactly like Akainu’s finishing move in the anime, but it was in some of the video games. It is also easily his most amazing attack. While the rest of his move set only causes Sakazuki to create a large, molten fist, the meteor volcano sends a shower of fiery fists into the air, only for them to arch down like a hellish rain.
This attack created one of the most terrifying scenes during the Paramount War, where the pirates had to fight as lava fell on them and the ground under their feet evaporated. This is the One piece Omaha beach scene version of Saving Private Ryan, and solidified Akainu, ironically, as one of the coldest figures in the Marines.
6 Great Commandment of Fire: Emperor of Flames
While Sanji and Akainu have their own pretty hot moves, no one in the series has as much fiery blood as the former Captain of the Spade Pirates and Whitebeard’s 2nd Division, Portgas D. Ace. Ace’s Flame-Flame Fruit wasn’t exactly the most original anime power out there, but Ace used it in a variety of interesting ways, including his trademark Fire Fist, Firefly Attack, and Flame Commandments.
His most powerful movement of all simulates the look and intensity of an entire sun that, if thrown at anyone other than Blackbeard, could take down almost any enemy in the One Piece world.
5 Poisonous Giant Soldier: Hell’s Judgment
Magellan was the transitional villain from Marineford Saga who guarded the dark cells of Impel Down. With his Venom-Venom Fruit, Magellan did much more than cover himself in poison. It created poisonous bubbles, noxious gases, and even a terrifying hydra that it could swim through.
His best attack of all transforms him into a giant, diabolical soldier made from his strongest venom. In addition to the gruesome aesthetics, Hell’s Judgment creates a poison so strong that it can infect even the stone walls and floors of Impel Down, allowing Magellan to inflict harsh justice literally wherever he steps.
4 Clash of Ursus
Ursus Shock isn’t the brightest or most complex move, but it does a better job than most of silencing a scene with sheer intensity. With his Paw-Paw Fruit, Bartholomew Kuma is able to reflect what appears to be anything and everything at the speed of light. This includes the Hollow-Hollow ghosts of Perona and in some ways the concept of pain.
His most iconic attack with Paw-Paw Fruit involves Kuma constantly reflecting air particles between his hands and condensing large amounts of them into a single paw-shaped bubble. This bubble is essentially a bomb that can unleash destructive amounts of air pressure that can take down armies or even a giant moving across a continent.
3 Lion Majesty: Earth Coiling
Shiki the Golden Lion is a semi-canon character who rivaled Gol D. Roger during One pieceHe was from the pirates and he went crazy as the main villain of the movie, One Piece: Strong World. With his Float-Float Fruit, Shiki can levitate and seemingly manipulate anything he touches, allowing him to fly, move entire ships on his own, and even hold his entire country captive in the sky.
However, Shiki’s Devil Fruit really extends the meaning of floating when you use it to manipulate the ground and create torrents of solid rock. With Lion Majesty, Shiki is able to create a giant lion head that can crush his opponent, and Lion Majesty: Earth Coiling is essentially a tsunami version of that.
2 Nine Swords Style: Asura
While Zoro has grown considerably stronger since his adventures in Enies Lobby, he has yet to capture people’s imaginations in the same way that he did when, seemingly for no reason, he grew two heads, seven additional arms, and six swords. , quite the One piece Plot twist!
A manifestation of Zoro’s aura, his nine-sword style: Asura movement allows Zoro to create the illusion of a multi-limbed god of war, as well as triple the output of his attacks. There’s not much else explaining this move, especially since he rarely uses it, but it’s cool nonetheless.
1 King Kong Gun
Luffy has thrown some pretty iconic punches over the years. His first Gum-Gum pistol against a Sea King is a signature of the series, his first “fight” with Bellamy was incredible, and his cathartic strike against a Celestial Dragon in the Sabaody Archipelago is one of the One pieceThe most rewatchable moments.
However, his best and strongest hit to date has to be the final culmination of both his Haki training and his Gear transformations. King Kong Gun requires Luffy to transform into the already overpowered Bound Man. However, in this state, Luffy can continue to blow air into his arm, essentially fusing Gear Fourth with Gear Third, allowing him to land a blow that can split a whole island.
