Get to know the highest level sword in One Piece. In the world of One Piece, Devil Fruits are not the only artifacts capable of granting powers. Weapons also play an important role in how well a character fights.
There are 12 swords that fall into the Saijo O Wazamono category, or the highest class. These weapons are far superior to others and are only used by the strongest characters in One Piece.
So far, only four have been revealed. Let’s find out more about what these terrible weapons are.
The strongest sword in One Piece
Yoru is the most famous highest class weapon in One Piece. This sword is owned by Dracule Mihawk, the strongest swordsman in the world. Yoru has an all black look that is even longer than Mihawk’s height.
Given its large size, Yoru is suitable for holding with two hands, but it is not uncommon for Mihawk to use it with one hand. One slash from the sword was strong enough to slice through a large boat easily. Considering Mihawk’s unrivaled agility and Yoru’s strength, it’s no surprise that he earned the title of the world’s best swordsman.
Gol D. Roger’s greatness is still a mystery to this day, but one thing is certain, he uses the highest class sword when fighting. His weapon is named Ace. He liked the sword so much that he chose Ace to be his son’s name.
So far we have seen Roger use Ace several times in epic battles, including when he fought against Whitebeard. Roger’s Ace was able to match Murakumogiri’s incredible strength without showing any signs of damage.
Shodai Kitetsu is a cursed sword that is also one of the four known highest class weapons. Like other Kitetsu swords, Shodai Kitetsu is believed to cause the death of its wielder. For this reason, not many people want to use the Kitetsu sword.
But we cannot deny Kitetsu’s strength. Of all the cursed swords, Shodai Kitetsu is by far the strongest. The wielder of the sword remains unknown, but many speculate that it may have been wielded by St. Ethan Baron V. Nusjuro, one of Liam Gorosei. It was quite reasonable for one of the five strongest fighters of the World Government to have a weapon of the highest level.
Murakumogiri is slightly different from other highest class weapons because its shape is not a sword, but a nagatina. This weapon was used by Whitebeard who had the power of the Gura Gura no Mi.
Even though the Gura Gura no Mi Devil Fruit has destructive power, Murakumogiri does not show the slightest sign of damage. This weapon is also able to withstand attacks from Roger, Akainu, and various other strong characters. After Whitebeard’s death, Murakumogiri was placed in his grave.
Enma (Potentially Saijo O Wazamono)
Currently Enma is still in the O Wazamono sword category, but it has the potential to become a weapon of the highest level. This sword was once used by the legendary Kozuki Oden, and currently belongs to Roronoa Zoro.
Enma is a special sword that absorbs a person’s Haki. Oden has controlled Enma since he was young, and was one of the two swords he used to seriously injure Kaido. So far Zoro has been able to control Enma, but it still takes a long process before he can use it without any side effects.
