Whitebeard’s Death: All About The Strongest Yonko


Whitebeard was a great pirate who lived a fulfilling life and died like a true warrior. He was one of the most honorable characters of One Piece, and his persona even made him the favorite character of the OnePiece, so considering the role he played in the One Piece world, we here at Cinephilespeaks decided to take a look into this character’s epic death. And everything around.

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 )
