10 – THE REMNANTS OF THE ROGER PIRATES
The Roger Pirates were the crew of the late Pirate King, Gol D. Roger, and were the only crew to ever reach Laugh Tale, the end of the New World in the Grand Line.
The things they did were part of legends. They made it as far as Skypiea and the end of the Grand Line, Laugh Tale, on their ship the Oro Jackson.
Even though the crew disbanded, the Marine would never allow the crew to be forgotten. If a crew member is encountered, the Marines cannot simply let them go. Similarly, Portgas D. Ace, being the son of Roger, is not spared from this prejudiced hunt.
9 – KOZUKI MOMONOSUKE
Kozuki Momonosuke is the current shogun of Wano Country and the son of the late daimyo of Kuri and patriarch of the Kozuki Family, Kozuki Oden.
He has the ability to communicate with the giant elephant Zunisha, being capable of seeing through its eyes and giving it orders, which is the only way it can do anything but walk. Should Momonosuke order it to attack, he is in command of a powerful weapon capable of wiping out fleets in a single blow. Like his father, Momonosuke also has the ability to hear the “Voice of All Things”.
8 – NICO ROBIN
Nico Robin is an exceptional archaeologist, with a vast knowledge of history and cultures.
She is also the only person alive who can read the language written on poneglyph tablets, which contain records of ancient history; this was the true reason why her first bounty was so high, despite being issued when she was only 8 years old. It is revealed that Robin taught herself most of these skills through researching in the library of Ohara, which she had done without the aid of her senior colleagues. Outside of historic knowledge, Robin also possesses considerable knowledge of most of the major figures in the world. She is even aware of top-secret organizations, including the World Government’s various Cipher Pol units (such as 9 and 0).
7 – SHIRAOSHI
Princess Shirahoshi, famous in the world as the Mermaid Princess is a giant smelt-whiting mermaid and the princess of the Ryugu Kingdom, as the youngest of King Neptune’s children in the Neptune royal family.
She is the current form of Poseidon, one of the three Ancient Weapons capable of mass destruction.
Poseidon was a Mermaid Princess who lived in the Void Century that had the power to talk to Sea Kings, enormous sea creatures capable of mass destruction. It appears that Shirahoshi can summon them through her will and feelings even though she wasn’t directly calling for them. This ability is what classifies her as one of the Ancient Weapons that the World Government fears so much.
6 – CROSS GUILD
The Cross Guild is recognized as a dangerous organization with power and influence equivalent to that of an Emperor’s crew. This is mostly a result of the strength and infamy of its chief officers, ex-Warlords and true founders of the company: Sir Crocodile, former Baroque Works president, and Dracule Mihawk, the World’s Strongest Swordsman and once a rival of Shanks of the Four Emperors. Another factor in the Cross Guild’s rising influence is the notoriety of current Emperor Buggy, who is also an ex-Warlord and a former apprentice of the Roger Pirates. Buggy is kept around as a figurehead leader in order to draw attention away from the chief officers. He provided the Guild with the necessary infrastructure and manpower to run smoothly by integrating his previous organization, Buggy’s Delivery, into it.
The Cross Guild is able to use their battle might and political influence to issue bounties on Marines, an initiative which appears to be working as indicated by it being reported on in the newspapers. As a result of the bounties, the Marines now have to worry about attacks not only from pirates, but civilians and bounty hunters as well. Due to the group’s popularity, they have received funding from many underworld organizations.
