I've always known my favorite, but recently I've been thinking of some more worth mentioning. Post your top 5, and why.
Honorable mention: Sanji
-Not in the top 5, but he's my second-favorite character in terms of straight-forward battle.
- I don't know much about him (as I only follow the anime), but his abilities and his humor are both great.
-Definitely the oddest character in One Piece (Cyborgs don't really fit in). He's strong, has great attacks, funny (especially when he's sad & pulls out a guitar ), and is SUPPPAA!
3. Bon Clay
-Very silly indeed. An oddball cross-dresser who's pretty good at fighting makes for an entertaining character.
-The darkness move where he sucked up the whole town & released it in one attack was amazing enough, but his ability to render a devil fruit users useless by contact at the cost of having to take damage for all attacks makes him very unique. The fact that he's so low-budget is funny too, and that he became a warlord without a bounty.
-My all-time favorite. I'm always prone to fire characters, but Ace makes it even easier with his coolness & finger-pistol ability. Not to mention I'm a lot like Ace in real life.
