One Piece Wiki

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 is a One Piece video game released for the Sony PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. It is the fourth installment in Pirate Warriors franchise, following One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 in 2015. It was first announced at the 2019 Anime Expo.[1]


The game features gameplay similar to its predecessors, though with some brand new changes introduced.

Characters are able to use up to 4 different special attacks, all of which can be leveled up. Also, air combat is more emphasized, with characters now having improved abilities to juggle enemies while staying airborne. Characters can also transform mid-battle, like in the first Pirate Warriors, such as Luffy using Gear 4. The style of the maps is similar to the ones seen in the first Pirate Warriors.

Pirate Warriors 4 also introduces the new concept of "giant characters" (like Big Mom) who are significantly larger than other characters and deal more damage. Some of those, like Big Mom and Kaidou, are playable.


All playable characters are divided into four general subtypes that summarily describe their method of fighting:

  • Power: Can deal massive collateral damage through most of their finishing moves.
  • Speed: Can move around fast and have strong combo ability.
  • Technique: Have abilities with unique gameplay effects, sometimes requiring prior setup for maximum effectiveness.
  • Sky: Focused on aerial combat.

Certain characters who have transformations or an alternate playable variation of them may exhibit a different subtype due to modified movesets. For example, Pre-Timeskip Sanji is a Speed-type character due to the lack of Sky Walk, which allows Post-Timeskip Sanji to act as a Sky-type fighter.

Many characters have a number of costumes to choose from. The remaining characters with bolded groups have a different character image and portrait depending on whether they are from pre- or post-timeskip, but no moveset changes. Costumes in italics are DLC.

The first wave of DLC, featuring Smoothie, Cracker, and Judge, was released on July 21, 2020.[2]

The second wave of DLC, featuring X Drake, Killer, and Urouge was released on September 24, 2020.[3]

The third wave of DLC, featuring Kin'emon, Kikunojo, and Kozuki Oden was released on December 17, 2020.[4]
