5,046,000,000 Berries, Whitebeard’s bounty at the time of his death was 5,046,000,000 Berries, this is the second-highest bounty known in the One Piece Universe uptil now. Whitebeard’s bounty was second only to Gol D. Roger ( The Pirate King ) himself, whose bounty was 5,564,800,000 berries. Whitebeard’s bounty not only shows how powerful he was but also shows how much the Marines feared him. He was also thought of as the man nearest to getting One Piece, he could have gotten it but he just wasn’t interested in it as all he cared was his family ( his crew members ). He was a man who had the power to destroy the world and don’t forget the most famous of his titles which we see the fleet admiral utter himself, ” The Strongest Pirate” There is no doubt to the fact that he was the strongest of all the other yonkos and was immensely feared even when he was old and sickly
How Strong Was Whitebeard?
He was the strongest pirate in the One Piece world, even the other yonkos feared and respected him. Some of the fans go ahead to say that he was the even stronger than the pirate king himself, the only difference between them being that Whitebeard didn’t seek One Piece and just wanted to enjoy his life with his crew members who he considered his family
How Did Whitebeard Die?
Whitebeard died in the battle of Marineford which is considered to be the best arc of One Piece uptill now. The war revolved around Ace, one of the captains of whitebeard’s ship who had gotten captured by the marine. Whitebeard reffered to his subordinates as his son, as he had always wanted family and valued relations rather than treasures like other pirates which was one of the many things that made him a unique pirate. He was reffered as the strongest pirate at the time of the battle of Marineford, though at the time he was 72 years old and even the admirals were scared to face him one on one.
After Ace was captured by the marine, and it was revealed that Ace was the son of Gol D. Roger ( The Pirate King ), it was necessary for the marine to get rid of him and execute him publicly. And that was exactly what they were planning to do, but they also knew that Whitebeard wasn’t going to just let one of his crew members ( the subordinates who he considered as his own sons ) to die out of nowhere, so there wasn’t a doubt to the fact that there was going to be a war taking place.
The much-anticiapted battle eventually took place and it went on to be a chaos for both sides. But two of the biggest losses in this battle were
- The death of Portagas D. Ace
- The death of Whitebeard New Gate ( One of the 4 Yonkos )
Whitebeard himself fought in the battle and beat thousands of marines on his on. After fighting thousands of enemies alone, he was quite hurt, he even beat the most feared admiral, Akainu, but this did lead to him getting injured quite a few times as Akainu had managed to pass a few punches through his body. After defeating the Akainu, whitebeard went on to fight Teach and his newly found crew, which consisted of quite a few notorious criminals. He completely annihilated Teach but along with the support of his teammate he ended up dying. But even in the last moments’ everyone was scared to go even near him. And eventually
Last Moments Of Whitebeard
In his last moments, he faced off Teach and his crew, he had completely beaten teach but Teach’s teammates came in to intrude and kept on simultaneously attacking Whitebeard. After they had stopped their attacks thinking that Whitebeard was dead, Whitebeard was still alive and this is when he said his last words. He died in a standing position right after uttering his last words. More importantly, he suffered 267 sword wounds, 152 gun wounds and shot by canon 46 times and during all this he had not even a single scar on his back. His last words were
“You’re not the one Teach!! The man Roger was waiting for, at the very least,It’s not you Teach.just as there are people who inherited Roger’s will…Someday one will carry Ace’s will…You may eradicate their bloodline, but their flame never dies…For many ages, it has been passed down through the generations…And someday, bearing the weight of all these generations, a man will appear to challenge this world…Sengoku, you people of the World Government are living in fear of that great battle that will someday engulf the entire world…Though it has nothing to do with me…When somebody finds that treasure…The world will be turned upside down!!… Oh YES! It WILL be found! That day will come!!!! … ONE PIECE! DOES EXIST !!!!“
Was Whitebeard Evil?

Despite the impressive strong persona he put on and the immense strenght he possessed he was one of the purest heareted of the pirates in the One Piece world. He saved vairous islands and cities by giving them shelter under his name. All he cared about was his crew members ( his sons )
