"Worst Generation" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.

The Worst Generation is a term that refers to twelve infamous pirates that appeared before the Summit War of Marineford, consisting of eleven super rookies that arrived at the Sabaody Archipelago just before the war, as well as the new emperor, "Blackbeard" Marshall D. Teach, who took his former captain's title after murdering him.[4] They are notorious for the bold actions they committed against the World Government and have bounties of over Beli.png100,000,000.[1]

As most of the major conflicts that have occurred after the Summit War revolve around them, they are regarded as "problem children" who appeared between the end of the Golden Age of Pirates and the beginning of the New Age.[4]


The Supernovas as described by Shakky.

Before they became known as the "Worst Generation", the eleven Supernovas were the top rookie pirates from nine different crews who all chose one of the seven routes along the Grand Line. They comprised of the captains of said crews, as well as two other crewmates, whose bounties are all above the threshold of Beli.png100,000,000. Each of them come from one of all five seas— the East Blue, West Blue, South Blue, North Blue, the Grand Line itself and even the White Sea. A common trait they all possess is that they have caught the attention of the World Government and have survived many ordeals that have wiped out most other pirate crews during their voyage in the Grand Line. Though they are all on par with each other as far as threat level is concerned, they represent different views on piracy.

With the exception of the Straw Hat Pirates, most Supernovas attempted to avoid the paths of the World Nobles. Coincidentally, all the Supernovas arrived on the Sabaody Archipelago at the same time which caused a series of issues for the Marines. In addition, all of them, with the exception of the Straw Hat Pirates and the Heart Pirates, entered the New World almost simultaneously. Marshall D. Teach, on the other hand, was already in the New World by the time the rookies were making preparations.

Of the twelve pirates, all but two (Zoro and Killer) are captains of their respective pirate crews and only one (Zoro) is not a Devil Fruit user (granted, Killer's fruit did not grant any abilities, only robbed him of his abilities to swim and express negative feelings). According to Shakuyaku, one of the Supernovas could potentially be responsible for inspiring a whole new generation of pirates,[1] a comment that is made true when it was revealed that Luffy inspired Bartolomeo to become an infamous pirate in his own right. According to Morgans, he firmly believes that one of the members of the Worst Generation will become the next Pirate King.[5]

Several members of what would become the Worst Generation became famous before entering the Grand Line. The actions of Kid in the South Blue, Law in the North Blue, and Bege in the West Blue were well-known even in the Grand Line around three years before the start of the series.[33] In the case of Bege, he became extremely infamous as a mafia leader who brought down rival gangs by solely killing their leaders, and later moved on to do the same thing as a pirate.[34] Kid and his first mate Killer became extremely infamous for the large numbers of civilian casualties they caused during their expeditions.[35] X Drake publicly defected from the Marines to become a pirate, though in reality was operating undercover as the captain of the Secret Special Force SWORD.[36] All of the Worst Generation's members started their pirating journeys relatively recently save for Teach, who had been a longtime member of the Whitebeard Pirates until he left to form his own crew following his murder of his crewmate Thatch. To build his power even more, Teach defeated and captured the infamous pirate Portgas D. Ace, his former crewmate on the Whitebeard Pirates, which caused the World Government to accept him as one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea.

Summit War Saga

Sabaody Archipelago Arc

Luffy declares he'll find One Piece to Kid and Law.

All of the Worst Generation's members save for Teach were present on the Sabaody Archipelago at the same time, and were noted by Shakuyaku for their distinction of being the only rookie pirates there with bounties over Beli.png100,000,000. However, Luffy proceeded to unleash chaos in Sabaody after punching the World Noble Saint Charlos, causing Marine Admiral Kizaru and a large Marine platoon to be sent to retaliate. Upon arriving, Kizaru encountered and battled Hawkins, Drake, Urouge, and Apoo, all of whom he defeated. Before he could capture or kill them, he was summoned to confront the Straw Hat Pirates. During this confrontation, the Warlord Bartholomew Kuma unexpectedly arrived and transported each of the Straw Hats off the island, including Supernovas Luffy and Zoro. The other Supernovas managed to shake off the Marines and escape from Sabaody.

Impel Down Arc

Luffy broke into the great prison of Impel Down to rescue his brother, Ace, from execution. Luffy's break-in caused great chaos, and this enabled Blackbeard to invade the prison with his crew to recruit prisoners from the most dangerous level, Level 6, as part of his plot.

Marineford Arc

The Blackbeard Pirates bring down the Emperor Whitebeard.

Luffy was unable to rescue Ace before the latter was taken to Marineford to be executed, but managed to escape from Impel Down with a horde of escaped prisoners and head to Marine Headquarters. There, with the assistance of the Whitebeard Pirates, Luffy succeeded in freeing Ace, though Ace quickly proceeded to be killed by Marine Admiral Akainu, which resulted in Luffy suffering a mental breakdown. Soon after Ace's death, the Blackbeard Pirates arrived with the new members they had recruited from Level 6. Together, they killed Whitebeard and enabled Blackbeard to steal the Emperor's Devil Fruit, the Gura Gura no Mi, through unknown means. As Blackbeard proceeded to unleash chaos on the battlefield, Luffy's allies worked to get him off Marineford. Fortunately for them, Law and his crew, the Heart Pirates, arrived in their submarine to take Luffy away. Once they did so, the Emperor Shanks arrived to put an end to the war, allowing the Marines, Blackbeard Pirates, and Whitebeard Pirates to retreat in peace. All of the Supernovas that were not involved in the conflict, save for Zoro, watched the war either from afar on their ships or from the video broadcast on Sabaody.

Post-War Arc

Blackbeard capturing Bonney in the New World.

Following the great war, most of the Supernovas and their crews headed to the New World. The main exception was Law, who opted to wait a little longer. The Kid and Hawkins Pirates began subjugating islands and other pirates they came across, while Apoo, Bege, and Urouge had encounters with the area's otherworldly forces of nature. Bonney and her crew ended up being captured by the Blackbeard Pirates, but Blackbeard was forced to leave her when a Marine battleship captained by Akainu arrived. Akainu proceeded to capture Bonney. After recovering from his wounds and mental breakdown, Luffy sent a message to his crew by ringing the Ox Bell on Marineford, telling them that they would reunite and head to the New World in two years.

During the Timeskip

Blackbeard was considered the top candidate to replace Whitebeard among the Four Emperors following the latter's death, and he would do so in a year after thoroughly defeating the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates in the Payback War.[37]

After finally entering the New World, Law would make a name for himself primarily through his involvement in instigating the Rocky Port Incident.[38] He would later join the ranks of the Seven Warlords after sending 100 pirate hearts to Marine Headquarters.[39] Bonney managed to escape capture by the Marines, and has appeared to lay low since then.[40]

The other Supernovas became involved with the Four Emperors in various manners. Kid and Killer launched attacks against both the Big Mom Pirates and Red Hair Pirates, with Kid losing one of his arms in a battle with the latter.[41] Bege, Apoo, and Urouge each invaded Big Mom's territory, and Bege joined the Big Mom Pirates while the other two were defeated.[42] Drake joined the Beasts Pirates after invading one of Kaido's favorite islands, and quickly rose up the ranks to become a member of the crew's Tobiroppo; Apoo would also join the Beasts Pirates as an informant. Due to the actions of the Supernovas and Blackbeard in the timespan between the events of Sabaody and now, their group became recognized as the "Worst Generation".

Dressrosa Saga

Punk Hazard Arc

Law forms an alliance with Luffy.

With two years having passed since Marineford, the Straw Hat Pirates reunited and voyaged into the New World. Shortly after quelling a rebellion on Fish-Man Island, they ended up on the quarantined island of Punk Hazard. Law was there as well at the time, working with the mad scientist Caesar Clown. Upon encountering the Straw Hats, Law proposed an alliance to Luffy with the intention of defeating Kaido. To do so, he plotted to destroy the production of Artificial Devil Fruits known as SMILE that the Warlord Donquixote Doflamingo was supplying Kaido with. The first step was to stop the production of SAD, the main ingredient in these fruits which Caesar produced on Punk Hazard. Luffy agreed to this proposal, and Law gave him the directive to capture Caesar to use as a pawn against Doflamingo while he destroyed the SAD production. The new allies managed to succeed, despite encountering resistance from Donquixote Pirates officers Vergo and Monet whom had been stationed as operatives in the laboratory by Doflamingo, as well as dealing with the release of a new weapon of mass destruction by Caesar. Once Caesar was captured, Law contacted Doflamingo and gave him the ultimatum to step down from the Warlords if he wished to regain Caesar, his lone resource for producing SAD.

Kid, Hawkins, and Apoo meeting to form an alliance.

At the same time those events were happening, the Kid Pirates, Hawkins Pirates, and On Air Pirates met to form an alliance for the purpose of defeating Shanks.[43] Although their meeting nearly ended in a quick failure, the trio were able to reach an agreement and their alliance was formed.[44][45]

Dressrosa Arc

Law is confronted by Doflamingo and Admiral Fujitora.

With Doflamingo seemingly having obeyed Law's ultimatum by leaving the Warlords, the Straw Hat-Heart alliance headed to Dressrosa, with the intention of covertly infiltrating and destroying the SMILE production factory while Law met with Doflamingo to return Caesar to him. Their alliance and actions on Punk Hazard had attracted the attention of Marine Headquarters, and Fleet Admiral Sakazuki sent Admiral Fujitora to address the situation. However, after reaching Dressrosa and meeting with Doflamingo to fulfill the deal, Law discovered that Doflamingo had never left the Warlords, having used his connections in the World Government to trick him and the entire public. Fujitora arrived to assist Doflamingo, and stripped Law of his Warlord title for allying with the Straw Hats. Law managed to keep Caesar out of Doflamingo's clutches by transporting him into the custody of a faction of the Straw Hats. They took him to Zou, while being pursued by Bege and the Big Mom Pirates, who also came to take custody of Caesar. In his ensuing battle with Doflamingo, Law stated that he had ended his alliance with the Straw Hats, revealing that his intention was not to take down Kaido but rather to ensure the Emperor would kill Doflamingo, in order to take revenge on the Warlord for murdering his mentor Corazon.

Luffy and Law confront Doflamingo.

Doflamingo proceeded to defeat and capture Law, and Luffy and Zoro led an invasion on Doflamingo's palace to save their ally. Upon rescuing Law and finding out that he had ended their alliance, Luffy refused to accept its dissolution. Doflamingo used his strings to create a "Birdcage" cutting off all escape from Dressrosa, commissioning a reward on Luffy, Law, and their subordinates for anyone around them to capture them. However, Luffy, Law, and Zoro led a charge against the Donquixote Pirates with the aid of pirates and other warriors that Luffy had met in the Corrida Colosseum. After an arduous conflict, this band of allies managed to defeat Doflamingo and his crew, with a portion of them destroying the SMILE Factory in the process. This turn of events netted the Straw Hat-Heart alliance even greater infamy across the world, and Fujitora and the Marines were ordered to arrest them. However, with the help of the allies they had made, the alliance was able to escape from Dressrosa. Most of these allies would then go on to one-sidedly swear themselves to Luffy, thus forming the Straw Hat Grand Fleet.

Kaido confronts Kid's alliance.

Meanwhile, Apoo had joined the Kid-Hawkins-On Air Alliance as an agent for Kaido, and directed the Emperor to the three crews' meeting place. Upon arriving there from the sky, Kaido pressed Kid and Hawkins' crews into his service. Hawkins willingly agreed, but Kid and Killer put up a fight. They were eventually defeated, with Kid and Killer being imprisoned in Wano Country. Killer was able to ensure his captain and crew's continued survival, by eating a failed SMILE and acting as an assassin for Kaido's ally, Orochi, under the disguise of "Kamazo the Manslayer", while publicly known as a serial killer. Hawkins quickly rose to the position of Shinuchi in the Beasts Pirates.

Four Emperors Saga

Zou Arc

The Straw Hats and Heart Pirates join a new alliance to take down Kaido.

Capone Bege and his crew arrived on Zou with a contingent of Big Mom Pirates to capture Caesar and Sanji, who were there with a portion of the Straw Hats, in order to bring the latter to an arranged marriage with Big Mom's daughter Charlotte Pudding.

Two days later, the rest of the Straw Hat-Heart alliance arrived at Zou. There, they formed the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance with the forces of the Mink Tribe that resided there, as well as with a group of samurai serving the Kozuki Family, whom they had worked with from Punk Hazard to Zou, in order to attack and bring down Kaido and the Beasts Pirates, who were occupying the samurai's home of Wano Country.

Whole Cake Island Arc

Luffy's Sanji Retrieval Team forms an alliance with the Fire Tank Pirates to assassinate Big Mom.

Luffy took a portion of his crew, as well as a few allies, to Whole Cake Island in order to free Sanji from the Big Mom Pirates. At the same time, Bege was plotting an elaborate attempt to assassinate Big Mom during Sanji and Pudding's wedding ceremony. After Luffy's group reunited with Sanji, they met with the Fire Tank Pirates in the hopes of forming an alliance, as they wished to invade the wedding to rescue Sanji's family members from an assassination plot by Big Mom. The alliance infiltrated the wedding ceremony, and although they successfully freed Sanji's family, the attempt on Big Mom's life was a failure. However, the alliance was able to escape from the wedding venue through a stroke of sheer luck when the castle it was located atop of tipped over after an explosion. Although Bege and Luffy immediately ended their alliance following their escape, their crews proceeded to continue working together when Bege's wife, Chiffon assisted Sanji in making a wedding cake to satisfy Big Mom's murderous craving. As his crew worked to escape from Totto Land, Luffy fought and managed to defeat the powerful Sweet Commander Charlotte Katakuri. Bege became involved in getting the cake to Big Mom, and once the cake was brought to her, both the Straw Hats and Fire Tank Pirates managed to escape from Big Mom's territory.

Levely Arc

Luffy received the majority of the coverage on the affairs that occurred in Totto Land, with the news portraying him as effectively going toe-to-toe with Big Mom and handing her a defeat. As a result, his bounty increased by Beli.png1,000,000,000 and the media began referring to him as the "Fifth Emperor". Meanwhile, Bege's bounty increased by only Beli.png50,000,000.

When the quadrennial Levely took place, Bonney donned the identity of Connie, the queen dowager of the Sorbet Kingdom, and infiltrated Mary Geoise for a currently unknown purpose.

The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.

One Piece: Stampede

Two years ago, when Teach entered Level 6 and initiated his "recruitment", there was actually one more prisoner who passed. But seeing that it was Douglas Bullet, Teach decided to leave him alone while taking the rest with him.

The Worst Generation hunting for Roger's treasure during the Pirates Festival.

In the present day, the crews of the Worst Generation (except the Blackbeard Pirates) all took part in the Pirates Festival. While the others prepared for the main event, Law infiltrated the Festival Pirates lair after sending his crew away, where he came close to the truth of the Festival, before being beaten by Douglas Bullet. After escaping and getting help from the Straw Hats, they discovered Buena Festa's secret plan.

The Worst Generation fight together against Douglas Bullet.

Back at the Festival the other pirates participated in the treasure race, however, after Buggy discovered the secret of the treasure, the event came to a sudden end, thanks to Bullet. Zoro went with the Straw Hats in order to escape, but ended up facing Issho, who came along with the fleet of Marine ships that was raiding Delta Island. Meanwhile, the remaining members of the Worst Generation fought Bullet, but were defeated after he revealed his Devil Fruit ability.

Luffy later recovered, and stubbornly went after Bullet, teaming up with Law, Smoker, Boa Hancock, Buggy and Sabo, with Rob Lucci and Crocodile supporting them. Together, Luffy managed to defeat Bullet and claimed the treasure in the process, an Eternal Pose to Laugh Tale, which he promptly destroyed, claiming that he doesn't need it. He then joined his crew, where together with the Worst Generation, and with help of Sabo and Ann, escaped the Marine's encirclement of the island.

Concludes non-canon section.

"Gang" Bege's Oh My Family

Bege decided to look for Lola, on Chiffon's behest. On reaching Dressrosa, not only did they find her, but also the twins' father, Pound. As they escaped Dressrosa while being pursued by the Marines, Lola was married to Gotti on the Fire Tank Pirates' ship, much to Bege and his family and crew's joy.

Wano Country Arc

Luffy and Zoro facing Hawkins at Wano.

Luffy's group headed to Wano, where they reunited with their comrades and went to work preparing for an invasion against the Beasts Pirates on the day of the Fire Festival, when they would be partying and drinking. However, the allies were not able to stay out of sight, and had run-ins and conflicts with Hawkins, now a Headliner of the Beasts Pirates, multiple times. Luffy clashed with Kaidou, after mistakenly thinking that the Emperor killed his crew, but was defeated and then jailed at the Udon Prisoner Mine, where he was put to slave work alongside Kid.

Zoro strikes Kamazo down.

While the allies prepared themselves for the upcoming fight, Drake and Hawkins were sent on various missions around the country, trying to uncover the enemy's plan. At one point, Zoro dueled against Killer, who was now under the name "Kamazo", when he was sent to kill a little girl on Orochi's order. Following his defeat, Killer was sent to the Prisoner Mine, where Luffy successfully engineered a prisoner's revolt against the wardens. Once the Beasts Pirates had been defeated, Kid and Killer set off on their own, having no desire to ally with pirates ever again. Meanwhile, during a fight that broke out when Shimotsuki Yasuie, a major ally of the alliance, was executed, Law clashed with Hawkins and was captured due to Hawkins holding his crew hostage. However, Drake later freed Law, allowing him to defeat Hawkins.

The Straw Hats finally reunited, and prepared themselves for the Fire Festival, with Luffy training his advanced Busoshoku Haki, which he learnt from a fellow prisoner. Due to the insistence of Kozuki Hiyori, Zoro agreed to return Shusui (which was a National Treasure of Wano) in exchange for Enma, the treasured blade of Kozuki Oden. As the blade had the unique property of forcibly sucking out the wielders Haki, Zoro spent the remaining time training with it.

During the events in Wano, Gecko Moria attacked the Blackbeard Pirates base, on Hachinosu, with Teach opting merely talk to him, instead of confronting him. When the news of the Warlords' abolishment was released, Teach immediately set sail to recruit them.[46]

Zoro and Drake teaming up against Apoo.

On the day of the Fire Festival, the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance set sail for Onigashima to launch their assault. While battling a small Beasts Pirates fleet sent to stop them, the Kid Pirates joined them; though they had intended to attack the Beasts Pirates on their own, they ultimately ended up moving right alongside the other factions as reluctant allies. After infiltrating Onigashima, the alliance launched their assault, with Apoo joining the Beasts Pirates in their counterattack. During the fighting, Drake's status as an undercover agent was exposed by Queen, Who's Who and Hawkins, who arrived late, forcing him to defect to the alliance's side. Together, he and Zoro teamed up against and eventually defeated Apoo, though the Longarm Tribesman soon rose again and persistently fought back.

Luffy, Zoro, Law, Kid, and Killer confronting Kaido and Big Mom.

Luffy, Zoro, Kid, Killer, and Law eventually made it up to the roof of Kaido's fortress, where they confronted Kaido and Big Mom. As the battle commenced, it soon became clear that as long as the two Emperor's fought together, the younger pirates would eventually lose. As such the Worst Generation Pirates successfully pulled off a strategy to separate them, with Kid and Killer volunteering to pursue Linlin, Trafalgar and Zoro retreated downstairs to tend to their wounds, while Luffy stayed behind to fight Kaido alone. As the top two of the Kid Pirates pursued Linlin, Basil Hawkins appeared in their path, with Killer deciding to stay behind in order to face him, while Kid continued to search for Big Mom.

Luffy eventually lost to Kaidou and was sent sinking into the sea, though using the Voice of All Things, he had Momonosuke transmit a message to their allies stating he would return, and was fortunately picked up by the Heart Pirates, who were still in their submarine. Kid and Law decided to fight Big Mom together, while Killer and Hawkins faced each other. Zoro, thanks to Sanji, was tended to by Chopper, having received serious injuries from the earlier battle. Luffy eventually made it back to the Skull Dome thanks to Momonosuke, where he once again fought Kaidou by himself.

Kid and Law defeating Big Mom.

As Killer fought Hawkins, whittling away all but one of the Magician's lives', Hawkins revealed that the last Straw Doll, was actually linked to Kid's life, leaving the Massacre Soldier unable to attack him. Taking advantage of this, Hawkins inflicted self-harm upon himself while redirecting all damage to Kid, however, Killer was able to cleverly circumvent this shield by cutting of Hawkins' left arm (which didn't affect Kid who no longer had said arm) and extracting his captain's doll before finishing of the Magician. This seemingly undid all the damage Hawkins sent to Kid, letting the Captain fight with all his strength. As Law and Kid fought Big Mom, both of them briefly used their awakened Devil Fruit abilities. While this did cause Big Mom some damage, they were unable to finish her, and instead she became even more serious while Kid and Law ended up becoming more exhausted.

Drake and Apoo join forces against CP0.

Drake ended up chasing Apoo all the way to the Cave Chamber, where the Roar of the Sea offered the Red Flag an alliance, where the two of them, alongside three Numbers would beat whoever claimed victory in the war, though Drake refused and attacked him. When Yamato made her appearance while rushing to the Armory, Apoo chased after her, persistently attempting to make her his ally, while Drake pursued Apoo. However, when two CP0 agents suddenly appeared before them, Apoo antagonized them by taking their pictures and claiming he'd sell them to Morgans. With the threat of their presence being exposed, the agents attacked the pirates who reluctantly teamed up to face the World Government agents.

After the Mink Tribe doctor, Miyagi, revealed that he possessed an instant-cure drug (with dangerous side effects) that could fix Zoro up quickly, the swordsman insisted that it must be administered to him. After receiving the drug and recovering, Zoro faced King in battle, who proved to be a powerful opponent, thanks to the unique and mysterious traits of both his Devil Fruit and his race. During the battle, Zoro's new sword, Enma, suddenly started to forcibly suck up Zoro's Haki as a test for the swordsman.


The Supernovas (without Zoro) after the timeskip.

  • Oda drew ten of the Supernovas (excluding Zoro) after the two-year timeskip for a promotional poster.
  • Oda has admitted in an interview for Grand Countdown that the Supernovas introduced during the Sabaody Archipelago were a late minute addition to the series, born out of a feeling that the arc lacked interesting characters. This was further confirmed in the 27th Log, with Oda having never expected them to have become so important to the plotline.
  • Luffy and Killer are the only members whose names do not come from real life figures.
  • Most of the Devil Fruit users have powers of a Paramecia, with X Drake being the only one with a Zoan (Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Allosaurus), and Teach the only one with a Logia (Yami Yami no Mi).
  • Scratchmen Apoo and Urouge are the only non-human members.
  • Capone Bege is the only known member to have a spouse and child.
  • Zoro and Killer are the only members who are not captains of their own crew and the only members who do not have Devil Fruit powers (though Zoro is the only one to have not eaten a fruit at all, with Killer having eaten a defective artificial SMILE).
