Haki is one of the fundamental features of the One Piece anime. Just like you have chi in Dragon Ball, the One Piece characters make use of their haki. Haki is further divided into three types: Armament Haki, Observation Haki, and Conqueror’s Haki. Out of all these types, the Conqueror’s Haki is the most special and unique type. Today we will be taking a look at the top 10 strongest users of Haki in One Piece who have dominated the storyline with this technique.
What Is Haki In One Piece?
Haki is the basic energy form that gives most of the characters in One Piece their abilities. It can be used in a variety of ways, and those who are able to use it gain a significant advantage in battle. Haki is divided into three categories: Haoshoku Haki, Kenbunshoku Haki, and Busoshoku Haki.
Haki also looks ultra cool visually, as we can see in the anime, as well as the One piece merch centered around the Haki theme.
List Of The Best Haki Users In One Piece
- Gol D. Roger
- Big Mom
- Monkey D. Luffy
- Monkey D. Garp
Katakuri – Best Of All Observation Haki Users
The first character that we have on this list is a very underrated one. Katakuri played a very important role in the Cake Island Arc, but he can’t be classified as a complete antagonist. Many fans are still hoping that Katakuri will become an ally of Luffy, which would be legendary indeed.
Katakuri is an expert Haki user who has complete mastery over all three types of Haki. But his speciality lies in the Observation Haki, whereby he can see into the future. This is also the main reason why he could stop the planned assassination of Big Mom.
Monkey D. Garp – Strongest One Piece character without devil fruit power
Some characters in One Piece don’t have devil fruit powers. They rely solely on their haki, and that’s what makes them so special. Monkey.D.Garp is one of these characters who has gone head to head against some of the toughest villains in One Piece history.
He has done so without using any form of special power and solely relying on his physical strength and Haki. That alone is a testament to the might of the guy who was in charge of Luffy’s childhood. He possessed only two types of Haki, but they were more than enough for a guy of his stature.

Sakazuki – Strongest navy admiral
Sakazuki is the new Fleet Admiral in One Piece who took the position of Sengoku. It is very obvious that unless a guy is proficient in the use of Haki, he will not be promoted to such a high position. Sakazuki had a destructive Devil Fruit ability to begin with, and combining that with Haki opens a floodgate of possibilities for him.
Similar to Garp, he only has two types of Haki, whose usage has been shown to us many times in the series. The most badass example was when Sakazuki used his Armament Haki to stop an attack from Whitebeard with the help of his two comrades.
Oden – Legendary Haki user from the Land of Wano
Oden is like a legendary figure in One Piece, and rightly so. He was like a walking monster who left a pile of destruction behind. Apart from his immense physical abilities, this is obviously a testament to his mastery of all three forms of Haki. He could clash with big names in the Pirate World with his Conqueror’s Haki, and even the likes of Whitebeard found it difficult to fight against him.
He had used it countless times to good effect and even knocked out many of Kaido’s henchmen within an instant. Although we have not seen much usage of Observation Haki by Oden, he could fuse his swords with Armament Haki and deal deadly blows.
Monkey D. Luffy – The Captain of Strawhat Pirates
The protagonist of this series has been making ripples in the One Piece world for a long time. Not only is he one of the rare people who can use all three types of Haki, but he has taken their usage to the next level.
In the case of the Conqueror’s Haki, he can infuse it with his attacks to deal massive blows to enemies, and it will seem like he is not even touching them. The other two Hakis were polished by Luffy during the time-skip period. The use of Armament Haki has made his life a lot easier whereby he can attack Logia Devil Fruit users with ease.

Big Mom – Best of all armament Haki Users in One Piece
Haki has no comparison when it comes to one of the Emperors of the Sea. Big Mom is a gigantic force who can bring destruction wherever she goes. It is very obvious that she can also use all three Haki types to blow apart her enemies.
She has mostly used her Conqueror’s Haki and Armament Haki to good effect, while the usage of the third one is almost negligible. Her timing of use of the Armament Haki is so good that it gives her an invulnerable defence. And in the case of Conqueror’s Haki she uses it often when she goes into a rage mode that can ever tear apart the sky.
Kaido – Head of the Animal Pirates
Finally, we arrive at the main antagonist of the Wano Arc, who has been a companion of Linlin in her early days. Just like his “friend,” Kaido can also use all three Haki types and is a master of them. His trump card lies in the Conqueror’s Haki, whose power is so great that very few can match up against it.
He can knock out above-average characters in an instant with his Conqueror’s Haki, and even the strong ones will feel a slight unease in its presence. Kaido knows how to infuse his attacks with Haki and multiply their power. This is the core of his strategy whenever he unleashes forceful strikes like Thunder Bagua.
Shanks – Strongest Of All Conqueror Haki Users
Shanks is a guy who is still shrouded in a lot of mysteries in One Piece. But the one thing that is certain about Shanks is his mastery of Haki. What makes Shanks stand out in a list of the strongest Haki users in One Piece is the fact that he was the first ever character to display the use of this powerful technique.
Not only that, but the very credit for the very first demonstration of the Conqueror’s Haki also goes to Shanks. He has shown time and time again that he can knock out a huge group of people with his Conqueror’s Haki. Moreover, unlike the other Emperors of the Sea, Shanks doesn’t have any devil fruit powers. This is why he has taken his Haki usage to such a devil that he doesn’t need any extra help.
Edward Newgate – One of the strongest Warlord of the Sea
For years, Whitebeard had been ruling the seas with his dangerous ability to cause earthquakes. But that was not the only trump card in his arsenal, as Whitebeard could also strike fear into the hearts of people with his Haki. He had equal proficiency in all three types of Haki, with countless examples of it in the story.
Apart from his special aura of Conqueror’s Haki, he has been regularly seen using the Armament Haki in combination with his main weapon. Finally, when it comes to Observation Haki, it greatly increases his senses and gives him an upper hand in any fight.

Gol D. Roger – Strongest Of All Haki Users
There is no doubt about the fact that when it comes to the strongest Haki user in One Piece, no one comes close to Gol.D.Roger. He is the guy who caused ripples in the pirate world through his accomplishments and was a constant threat to the Marines. Although he could use all three forms of Haki, we have only seen him use two forms of haki at the flashback episode.
Gol. D. Roger clashed against Whitebeard with his Conqueror’s Haki, and that immediately knocked out most of their crewmates. Similar to Whitebeard, he could also fuse his cutlass with Armament Haki, which increased its power quite significantly.
That’s it for this post! These were the top 10 strongest Haki users in One Piece.
