It is possible to learn Armament and Observation Haki, but Conqueror’s Haki cannot be taught. It is something that a character is born with. If applied to an attack, Conqueror’s Haki increases the damage output significantly. While it is definitely a strong asset, it is not necessary to become the best. There are certain One Piece characters who have demonstrated that it is possible to become strong without Conqueror’s Haki.

7 Sanji

Powers: Ifrit Jambe, Armament Haki, Observation Haki

Sanji Ifrit jambe attack

Sanji is the cook of the Straw Hat Pirates, as well as a member of the Monster Trio. Sanji does not have a Devil Fruit nor does he have access to Conqueror’s Haki. However, he does possess incredible physical abilities. Sanji’s body is genetically enhanced, which makes him more resilient, faster, and stronger. These enhancements also allow his body to withstand high temperatures, thus enabling him to create new fighting styles.

Sanji has employed these new techniques in battles, and they have helped him overwhelm all his enemies. Despite not having Conqueror’s Haki, Sanji is still leagues above most characters in One Piece.

6 Crocodile

5 Trafalgar Law

Powers: Ope Ope no Mi, Armament Haki, Observation Haki

Trafalgar D. Water Law

Trafalgar Law is the captain of the Heart Pirates. During the time-skip, he managed to earn a place among the Shichibukai. Law ate the Ope Ope no Mi when he was still very young, and over time, he learned to fully control its power. Law’s Devil Fruit makes performing the most difficult medical procedures extremely simple. It also allows him to bypass the defense of any person imaginable.

Trafalgar Law has used the Devil Fruit to beat Big Mom, Vergo, and some other noteworthy characters. He has access to Observation and Armament Haki, but so far he has not been confirmed as a user of Conqueror’s Haki.

4 Marco

Powers: Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix, Armament Haki, Observation Haki

Marco Using His Phoenix Form At Marineford In One Piece

Marco used to be the First Division Commander of the Whitebeard Pirates, and he served his captain loyally for many years. He was named by the Five Elders among the few characters who could face Blackbeard, which was a major testament to his strength. Marco’s main source of strength is his Devil Fruit.

The Straw Hat Pirates have surmounted countless tests in One Piece, but they cannot upend these pirate crews.

His Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix allowed him to transform into the mythical bird at will. The Devil Fruit also enhanced his physical abilities while granting him the power to recover from all kinds of injuries. Additionally, Marco could also use the Devil Fruit to fly. Considering Marco was the right-hand man of Whitebeard, one would have expected him to have Conqueror’s Haki, but that wasn’t the case.

3 Dracule Mihawk

Powers: Armament Haki, Observation Haki, Yoru

dracule mihawk

Dracule Mihawk is known as the strongest swordsman in the world. For years, he honed his skill with the blade, and it allowed him to reach the level that most people can imagine. In battle, Mihawk relies on his all-black blade, Yoru, which is a Saijo O-Wazamono grade sword.

Mihawk’s attacks are highly dangerous, and a single slash can effortlessly destroy a galleon. It is very likely that he has immense control over Armament and Observation Haki. Whether he possesses Conqueror’s Haki remains unknown.

2 Shiki

Powers: Fuwa Fuwa no Mi, Armament Haki, Observation Haki

Shiki from One Piece

Shiki was a legendary pirate who hailed from the same era as Gol D. Roger. He was the captain of the Golden Lion Pirates, and they were considered one of the strongest pirate crews of their time. When it came to combat, there weren’t many who could get the better of Shiki. He was a fierce warrior who tussled with Gol D. Roger and other great fighters of his time.

Shiki was endowed with the power of the Fuwa Fuwa no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allowed him to levitate himself and inanimate objects. Shiki had complete mastery over this power, which made it rather difficult to fight him. A good example of his strength is the time he went to Marineford alone and fought against Garp and Sengoku. He managed to destroy a significant portion of Marineford, and he injured Garp severely. Shiki managed to achieve all this and more without Conqueror’s Haki.

1 Blackbeard

Powers: Gura Gura no Mi, Yami Yami no Mi, Armament Haki, Observation Haki

Blackbeard from one piece

Blackbeard is a Yonko who has complete control over Hachinosu. He improved his reputation around the world with the help of his two extremely strong Devil Fruits. Blackbeard’s Yami Yami no Mi gives him the ability to control darkness, which he can use to nullify the power of other Devil Fruits.

Blackbeard’s second Devil Fruit is the Gura Gura no Mi, which he stole from Whitebeard. With the help of this Devil Fruit, he can create tremors at will. So far, Blackbeard has only used Armament and Observation Haki. There has been no real evidence that Blackbeard possesses Conqueror’s Haki. But it’s rather clear that even if he doesn’t have Conqueror’s Haki, he can beat most of the characters in One Piece.
