One Piece's Yonko Commanders stem from the almighty Yonko Pirates, making them an incredibly powerful bunch. But who is the strongest?

p>The Yonko are known to be the strongest pirates in the One Piece world. They rule over the New World like Kings while facing little to no opposition from any power. As the strongest pirates, it is very common for them to have powerful subordinates, the strongest of which are generally referred to as the Yonko Commanders.

Most Yonko that have been seen in the story of One Piece so far have 3 extraordinary subordinates who are a cut above the rest. Just like the Yonko, they're close to each other in terms of power, but some are indeed stronger than the others.

Updated April 3, 2022, by Rei Penber: Yonko Commanders are some of the most impressive figures in the One Piece world, and over the years, several capable pirates have held this title. Although the original version of this list already included the strongest Yonko commanders in the show, there are quite a few others who, while not necessarily as strong, deserve to be mentioned as well. As such, this list has been updated to include further additions, honoring more of the strongest Yonko commanders In One Piece.

14 Charlotte Cracker

Charlotte Cracker is one of the three Sweet Commanders of the Big Mom Pirates. He was introduced in the Whole Cake Island arc with a bounty of 860 million berries. Cracker is extremely powerful and is capable of easily overpowering Luffy's Gear Fourth.

13 Charlotte Smoothie

Charlotte Smoothie is the second-strongest Sweet Commander in the story, second only to Katakuri. She possesses the power of the Shibo Shibo no Mi, which allows her to wring out all the moisture out of people.

She can also absorb moisture out of the air and use it to her advantage by manipulating it freely. Smoothie is incredibly powerful; however, she isn't all that smart, which is her biggest weakness and places her lower on the list.

12 Yasopp

Usopp's father, Yasopp, is an officer of the Red Hair Pirates and likely one of Shanks' three best men, as mentioned by the Marines in chapter 957 of the manga. Yasopp is a sniper who has been hailed to be the best by many.
