Shueisha revealed the results of the ONE PIECE character popularity today. The “World Top 100” contest was held from January 3 through February 28, 2021, and ranked the top 100 most popular characters from the series. 

The winning top three characters are: Luffy, Zoro, and Nami. The runners-up, fourth through sixth place, are: Sanji, Trafalgar Law, and Nico Robin.

The contest was held in celebration of the manga series 1000th chapter by Eiichiro Oda. Oda shared the following message in celebration of the results: 


Usually, this character ranking poll is only done in Japan but by opening it up to the world through the internet, I was able to see in real time a glimpse of which characters are popular in different regions of the world and some characters went up in the rankings since the midterm results, so it was truly entertaining.

I heard that there seemed to be some movements online organized by fans to come together to cast votes for unexpected characters. That didn’t get past the production team (laugh). It’s amazing how different the preferences towards these characters are all over the world and it was so fun seeing how it went down for Robin and Carrot.

As I promised, I’ll be creating a cool piece with the characters who ranked in the top 50 plus some others so please look forward to it.

Thank you so much to all the ONE PIECE fans all over the world for casting so many votes!

-Eiichiro Oda
