The Rocks Pirates, led by Rocks D. Xebec, are the most powerful pirates in One Piece history. However, the crew’s fatal weakness was their internal hatred and constant infighting, making them vulnerable to defeat. Their lack of mutual support and trust allowed their enemies, such as Monkey D. Garp and Gol D. Roger, to easily divide and conquer them, leading to their downfall.
While Gol D. Roger’s Roger Pirates are considered the strongest pirates in the world A piece, the Rocks Pirates, rulers of the Four Seas a generation ago, are said to be stronger. This is why it was unfortunate that the Rocks Pirates had an important weakness that ultimately led to their downfall. The Rocks Pirates may be the strongest crew in One Piece, but that doesn’t matter as much as how much they hate each other.
About 50 years before Gol D. Rogers gathered his destined crew to come to the Laughing Tale and find the treasure One Piece, the seas along the Grand Line belonged to Rocks D. Xebec and his Rocks Pirates. him, a collection of fearsome violent miners. who even made One Piece’s evil World Government tremble. Unlike the contemporary One Piece Pirates, Xebec kept a smaller second sub-team who shaped and greatly influenced the contemporary pirate community. His crew includes notorious pirates such as Whitebeard, Big Momma, and Kaido.
The Rocks Pirates Totally Hate Each Other
Although Xebec gathered the strongest pirate bosses under one sail, the Rocks developed a fatal weakness that Monkey D. Garp and Gol D. Roger eventually took advantage of to put the Rocks Pirates “on vacation.” retired” rudely. The weakness is that Xebec’s crew dislike each other so much that they are willing to sacrifice part of their authority to defame each other. As Former Fleet Admiral Sengoku said in One Piece Chapter #957, “they were so fierce” that they “repeatedly killed each other in the group.” Although the World Government feared the possibility that the Rocks could overthrow their leadership, the constant quarrels between the captains meant that they were more inclined to fight with themselves. is fighting the Marines.
No other crew in One Piece’s long history is as strong and powerful from top to bottom as the Rocks Pirates. In Chapter #957, Sengoku calls them “an unstoppable evil force”. There is no “weak link” for the opponent to take advantage of to win the day. Opponents are forced to face the fact that they will have to defeat eight equally capable bosses before they can even consider taking down Xebec on their own. If the Rocks Pirates could swallow their pride and develop a mutually agreed plan of action, it was unlikely that anyone could defeat them.
Ultimately, their lack of mutual support means they can be divided and conquered with relative ease. Toxic work environments mean that few senior leaders trust each other and are more likely to envy each other. This necessarily means that they have no loyalty. Accordingly, when faced with a real and unified threat, such as the fateful day that occurred in Roger and Garp’s Valley of the Gods, it is not difficult to imagine the most powerful pirate crew in the history of the world. how. A piece was ultimately made possible by their own inner weakness.
