One Piece is a story about pirates, so it’s only natural that there are going to be some deaths along the way. This guide will list all of the major character deaths that have occurred in the series so far, as well as some of the more notable ones.

Ace: One of the most tragic deaths in the series, Ace was executed by the World Government for his involvement with the Whitebeard Pirates. His death not only left Luffy devastated, but also led to a major war between the Whitebeard Pirates and the World Government.

Kozuki Toki

Kozuki Toki was the wife of Kozuki Oden and the mother of Momonosuke and Hiyori. She was a skilled user of the Time-Time fruit, which allowed her to travel through time. She was also a skilled fighter, as she was able to hold her own against Jack during the Kuri House raid.

Toki was born in Wano Country on December 12th. Her father was a member of the Akazaya Nine, who were known for their skills in combat. When she was five years old, her father died in battle. This left Toki with a deep hatred for war. When she was sixteen, she met Kozuki Oden and they fell in love. They married soon after and had two children together: Momonosuke and Hiyori.

Toki lived a happy life with her family until the day that Kaido arrived in Wano Country. Oden attempted to stop him but was defeated and killed. Toki tried to fight Kaido herself but was no match for him. She was forced to watch as Kaido killed her husband and burned down their home.

With Oden dead, Toki became the new leader of the Kozuki clan. She vowed to take revenge on Kaido and restore order to Wano Country. To do this, she knew that she would need help from outside of Wano Country. She used her Time-Time fruit powers to travel back in time 20 years

Queen Otohime

Queen Otohime was a beautiful mermaid who lived in Fish-Man Island. She was the queen of the island and was very loved by her people. She was also the mother of Shirahoshi, the current Mermaid Princess.

Queen Otohime was a kind and loving queen who always thought of her people first. She worked hard to try to make peace between humans and fish-men and even gave her life to do so. Her death was a tragic event that shocked everyone on the island.

Shimotsuki Yasuie

Shimotsuki Yasuie was the daimyo of Wano Country’s Shimotsuki Province. He was a kind and just leader, who was loved by his people. However, he was betrayed by his son Orochi and executed. His death left his people devastated and led to the start of the Kozuki Rebellion.


In the series, Bell-mère was the mother of Nami, Nojiko, and Genzo. She died when Arlong and his crew attacked her village, Cocoyasi.

Bell-mère was a kind and loving mother to her daughters, Nami and Nojiko. She was also very protective of them, going so far as to risk her life in order to protect them from Arlong’s crew.

She was also a brave woman who stood up to the pirates despite being heavily outnumbered. After her death, she left behind a large amount of money for Nami, which allowed her to buy back their village from Arlong.


In the world of One Piece, Pedro was a member of the Straw Hat Pirates and one of their most loyal crewmates. He was also one of the few members who had a personal connection to Sanji, as they both shared the same dream of finding All Blue. Sadly, Pedro’s time with the Straw Hats came to an end when he sacrificed himself in order to save his captain and friends from certain death.

Pedro was always a reliable crewmate, whether it was during battle or on a mission. He was also one of the funniest members of the crew, often making jokes that would lighten the mood. However, he was also fiercely protective of his friends and would do anything to keep them safe. This was evident when he put himself in harm’s way to save Sanji from Charlotte Katakuri.

Despite his brave actions, Pedro unfortunately didn’t make it out alive and passed away shortly after saving Sanji. His death left a big hole in the Straw Hats, but they continue to honor his memory by carrying on his dream of finding All Blue.

Donquixote Rosinante (Corazon)

Donquixote Rosinante, also known as Corazon, was a World Government Official and the captain of the Donquixote Pirates. He was the biological father of Trafalgar D. Water Law.

Corazon was a tall man with long, flowing black hair and a mustache. He wore a white suit with a red scarf and a black top hat. He also had a small tattoo of a cross on his left hand.

Corazon was an extremely intelligent man and was known for being very level-headed. He was also quite perceptive, as he was able to see through Doflamingo’s facade and correctly deduce that Doflamingo was planning to betray the World Government.

Despite his intelligence, Corazon had poor health and was often bedridden due to his unnamed illness. Due to this, he often relied on others to do things for him.

He first met Law when Law saved him from some bullies. Impressed by Law’s courage, Corazon took him under his wing and raised him like his own son. He taught Law everything he knew, including medicine and how to fight.

When Doflamingo launched his coup d’etat against the World Government, Corazon tried to stop him but was easily defeated. Before Doflamingo could kill him, Law intervened and saved Corazon’s life at the cost of his own arm.

Enraged by this, Doflamingo cut off Corazon’s left ear and forced him to leave the island. Corazon was later found by a Marine ship and was taken to an unknown location where he died from his illness.

Before his death, Corazon gave Law the Ope Ope no Mi and asked him to use it for good. He also entrusted Law with his dying wish: that Law find a way to save the children of Dressrosa from Doflamingo’s tyranny.

Kozuki Oden

Kozuki Oden was the Daimyo of Kuri in Wano Country. He was also a member of the Roger Pirates, and an acquaintance of Whitebeard. He was executed by the shogun of Wano, Kurozumi Orochi, twenty years ago.

Oden was born into the nobility of Wano Country. As a young man, he met and befriended Whitebeard, who was visiting Wano at the time. The two men became fast friends, and when Oden learned that Whitebeard was planning to become a pirate, he decided to join him.

Oden sailed with the Roger Pirates for three years, during which time they committed many atrocities. Eventually, Oden realized that he could not continue living this life, and so he left the crew and returned to Wano.

Unfortunately, Oden’s return coincided with the rise of Kurozumi Orochi as shogun of Wano. Orochi hated Oden and saw him as a threat to his power. He ordered Oden’s execution, and despite pleas from Oden’s wife Toki and son Momonosuke, Orochi had him killed.


Whitebeard was the captain of the Whitebeard Pirates and one of the Yonko. He was also known as “The Strongest Man in the World” and “The Man Closest to One Piece”. After the death of Gol D. Roger, he became known as “The King of the Pirates”.

He was a very tall man with a broad chest and a large belly. He had a long white beard that covered most of his face, and his eyes were hidden behind a pair of thick glasses. His voice was said to be very loud and deep. He wore a striped shirt, pants, and a coat that were all black and white. On his left arm, he had a tattoo of a cross.

Whitebeard’s main weapon was a massive broadsword that he wielded with both hands. He was incredibly strong, and his sword swings were powerful enough to cut through metal. He also had the ability to create earthquakes by stomping on the ground.

Whitebeard was considered to be one of the strongest pirates in history. He was feared by many, but he was also respected for his strength and power. He lived up to his reputation as “The Strongest Man in the World” by defeating many powerful opponents in battle.

One of Whitebeard’s most famous victories was against Marshall D. Teach, better known as Blackbeard. In their final battle, Whitebeard managed to mortally wound Blackbeard despite being outnumbered and outgunned.

Going Merry

The Going Merry was the first ship of the Straw Hat Pirates, but it was not built to last. The ship eventually became too old and frail to continue sailing, so the crew had to find a new one. The Going Merry was originally owned by Shimotsuki Village and was used as a fishing boat. It was then stolen by the Straw Hats from Marine Captain Morgan, who intended to burn it.

The Going Merry served the Straw Hats well for many years, but it was not without its problems. The ship was constantly leaking and needed constant repairs. In addition, the ship was very slow and not very maneuverable. Despite all of these issues, the Going Merry was a beloved vessel by the Straw Hats and they were very reluctant to let her go.

Eventually, the time came for the crew to say goodbye to their first ship. They gave her a proper funeral at sea and sent her off with tears in their eyes.

Gol D. Roger

Gol D. Roger was the King of the Pirates and the most powerful pirate in the world. He was also the only person to ever defeat Whitebeard, the strongest pirate alive. Gol D. Roger was executed by the World Government for being a pirate, but his last words inspired millions of people to become pirates themselves.

Roger was born in 22 years ago[1], in Loguetown[2]. He became a pirate at age 11[3] and by age 19, he had already conquered half the Grand Line[4]. Three years later, he reached Raftel[5], which is considered the end of the world. Upon returning to Loguetown, he declared that “The One Piece” (the treasure he found on Raftel) did not exist, and that anyone who became a pirate would be able to find it. This declaration sparked the Great Pirate Era[6], during which many pirates tried to find “The One Piece”.

Roger was eventually captured by the World Government[7] and brought to trial. He was executed in front of a large crowd in Loguetown[8], but his last words were “My treasures? If you want it, you can have it! I left everything I gathered together in one place!” These words inspired many people to become pirates and go off in search of “The One Piece”.

Roger’s death marked the end of an era, but it also signaled the beginning of a new one. His legacy continues to this day and his spirit lives on in the hearts of all pirates.

Portgas D. Ace

Portgas D. Ace was the second division commander of the Whitebeard Pirates and one of the most powerful pirates in the world. He was also the son of Roger D. Ace and Portgas D. Rouge, making him Luffy’s adoptive brother.

Ace was born on December 5th, in Lvneel Kingdom. When he was just a baby, his mother died giving birth to him and his father soon died as well. As an orphan, Ace was taken in by Monkey D. Garp and raised alongside future pirate king, Gol D. Roger and future First Mate of the Whitebeard Pirates, Sabo. The three young boys quickly became friends and formed a strong bond, vowing to become pirates together when they grew up.

However, when Ace was ten years old, Sabo ran away from home after learning that he would be forced into an arranged marriage. While out looking for him, Ace found Sabo being attacked by bandits. He saved Sabo’s life but was gravely injured in the process and ended up getting his heart pierced by a bullet meant for Sabo. Fortunately, Garp arrived in time to save both boys and brought them back home where doctors were able to save Ace’s life but not before he lost all memories of his childhood friend Sabo.

Ace eventually set out on his own to become a pirate like he’d always wanted and quickly made a name for himself as one of the most fearsome pirates sailing under the Jolly Roger. In his travels, he found and joined Whitebeard’s pirate crew and eventually became a division commander.

He later proved to be an invaluable ally to Luffy in his quest to become the Pirate King. He was even willing to give up his own life for Luffy’s sake, sacrificing himself in order to ensure Luffy’s safety from the Marines at Marineford. His death left a lasting impression on not only Luffy but also the entire world of pirates and will never be forgotten.

Zephyr (Z)

In the anime series One Piece, Zephyr, also known as Z, was the captain of the Marines during the time of Roger.
