That’s why we shouldn’t underestimate the importance of the Whitebeard Pirates


I don’t understand why people think Whitebeard’s leaders are weaker than the other Yonko leaders.

Whitebeard’s leaders are not only powerful, but they are many as well. There are 16 leaders, and they’re obviously not all very strong but they’re still pretty cool. It’s safe to say that Whitebeard’s weakest leader is no fodder, compared to the crew of Kaido and Big Mom as there are only a few really strong people and the rest might not be there either.

It wasn’t like any other captain would have done better against the Admiral unless we’re talking about Shanks’ crew known as the most poised and most impenetrable of the Yonko’s four crews with Ben Beckman, Lucky Rowe and Yasopp, all of which are referred to as big names in their own right.

So let us carry out the feats that the leaders of Whitebeard offer us.

Marco Phoenix

Marco has Tori Tori no Mi, the form: the Phoenix Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a phoenix, giving him the ability to fly. His control of his hybrid form is so great that he can transform individual parts of his body, and is able to remove his hands and feet from his transformation when necessary.

However, the greatest ability derived from his Devil Fruit, was the ability to regenerate and heal parts of his injured body simply by encasing them in the flames of his own phoenix shape. In this form he can withstand deadly attacks without being affected in the least, since he can heal any of them almost instantly (and can also heal the wounds of others, even if they are limited).

Thus Marco was able to block a barrage of simultaneous laser beams from Kizaru, and even intercepted, with the help of Busoshoku Haki, an attack that was so devastating that it burned him and eventually claimed the life of a Logia-user Ace; The recent feat suggests that phoenix flames are superior to Akino’s lava and Ice fire, or this may have been due to Marco’s healing powers.

Marco certainly showed in the Marineford War that he was on a similar level of combat as the Three Admirals. He was perfectly capable of fighting Admirals Kizaru, Aokiji, and Akainu during his pregnancy. After the time on Onigashima passed, Marco had a brief face-to-face confrontation with Big Mom apparently on equal terms, with Marco seeming confident in his ability to keep the Emperor busy. Also, Marco effectively fended off defeating both the King and Queen of All Stars – Kaido’s most powerful fighters with over a billion bounties – simultaneously, sending his attacks sending every pilot and drawing blood repeatedly.


Gozo has outstanding brute strength. He picked up an enormous iceberg and threw it a great distance into the gigantic squad of marines protecting Marineford. Thus, Jozu demonstrated one of the greatest feats of power seen in the series

Gozo ate Kira Kira no Mi, a Paramecia Devil Fruit that allows him to turn parts, and likely all of his body, into diamonds.
Juzu’s powers give him the ability to greatly increase his offensive and defensive capabilities, as his already powerful physical attacks are enhanced by the density of his diamond body. His defenses seem to be greatly enhanced, as he is able to fend off the world’s strongest swordsman from the world’s greatest swordsman, Shichibukai Dracule Mihawk, without any visible damage to himself, as diamonds are one of the hardest materials in the world, along with Seastone and Poneglyphs.

Despite his massive body, his speed and reflexes are on par with his brute strength. This speed, combined with his Haki, makes Jozu (especially when in his diamond form) particularly dangerous against Logia users. He launched a devastating surprise attack on the crocodile that knocked him a large distance back. Later, he launched another surprise attack on Admiral Aokiji, shattering his icy form and causing the Admiral to bleed from the mouth.
