Mr. 1 – From all his opponents so far the assassin from West Blue Daz bones or Mr. 1 was quite formidable and difficult one. He met Daz bones in Alabasta.

Davy Jones fight– Zoro joined hands with his most hated person deck, Sanji and took on foxy pirates in a game.

Kaku– Kaku used to be a no 2 fighter of the CP-9 and was a swordsman himself. He used a unique technique of four-sword- style. Both of them had a little interaction at Water 7s, with Kaku leashing Zoro with easily. But at their second altercation in Ennies Lobby, Zoro fought on par with Kaku. He managed to defeat him with his new demonic power of Ashura and managed to obtain the key.
Shu- With the battle already in the bag against CP9, the Straw-hats were looking for a way to escape the Marines and their battle ships. Among the marines, there was this guy Shu with an ability rusting any thing that he touches. He ate the devil fruit of Sabi Sabi-no-mi, and rusted Zoro's Yubashiri sword. Thus, ending the journey of the brilliant blade which came all the way back from Logue-town till here.
Ryuuma– Zoro met Ryuuma at Thriller Bark with Brook’s shadow in him. Zoro admired the black sword of the samurai and challenged him for a fight. After a rapid-fire altercation, Zoro got the better of Ryuuma and claimed victory with his Hiryu Kaen attack and end up obtaining the Black Sword Shusuui of the samurai.
Kuma– Zoro fought Kuma at two separate occasions and was defeated at each time (it is due to Zoro already worn out and in no state of another battle).
Humadrills- After Zoro was perplexed and separated from his crew, he was sent to an unknown island. There he was confronted with a tribe of Baboons kn own as Humadrills who had the ability of copying battle techniques, and guess what Mihawk was the one that they had copied, as Mihawk lived on that island. Zoro battled with them, and in the period of time-skip too, he trained himself by battling with them.

Monet– in Punk Hazard, Zoro came face to face with a Logia devil fruit eater, Monet. He first allowed Tashigi, the marine captain to take on Monet, while he sat cross-legged on the floor. But when he noticed Tashigi in trouble he kissed the cheeks of Monet with his Busoshoku Haki infused sword and sliced it upon. After that, it took him one attack of Daishinkan to paralyze Monet with his monstrous skills. Later Tashigi dealt with the last blow, thus ending Monet's struggle.

Samurais– Upon arriving in Wano, despite living under the alias of a Ronin, he just couldn’t keep himself out of danger and was taken prisoner by the administrators, on the pretense of robbery of Ryuuma sword. But when he was pressurized to do Seppuku, he sliced all of them.

Smile users– Zoro easily took down many Smile users.
Killer– In his fight with Killer, he was faced with a smiling Killer who has earlier lost his sanity and tried to sneak attack Zoro but Zoro was way out of his league. Despite being struck by a reaper, he just smiled and took down Killer with just one single Santoryu attack.
Gyukimaru- At Ohiagi bridge both of them clashed with each other. But it couldn't go on further due to Kamazo, After he dispatched his fellow member of worst generation, Zoro again focused his attention on Gyukimaru. Even during the battle with Killer, Zoro had to face a three-way battle against Gyukimaru and Killer. Despite this turpitude, Zoro emerged victorious and was able to retrieve his sword Shusui (Kokuto) back.
Currently Wano Arc is in full swing, so there might be some more matchups which are in await for Zoro.
