The Best One Piece Fights Youll Catch On Netflix


The Best One Piece Fights You'll Catch On Netflix
One Piece is finally on Netflix! Or at least, the first 130 episodes anyway. Compared to any other anime, that may seem like a lot, but for One Piece, that only scratches the surface, covering just the first two major arcs of the series and a couple of smaller ones here and there.

There are a ton of important moments nestled in those first 130 episodes, but today we’re looking specifically at the best fights. So, with that said, here are our picks for the best One Piece fights up to the end of the Alabasta arc.















Slight spoilers ahead!

8. Luffy vs Don Krieg
The climactic final battle of the short but sweet Baratie arc featured an equally short but sweet battle between Luffy and the seemingly impervious Don Krieg. While Don Krieg is pretty bottom of the barrel as far as One Piece villains go, this fight is still memorable for two main reasons: 1. It firmly established Luffy’s tendency to recklessly attack regardless of the potential harm to himself (see Luffy punching a cape of spikes in order to crush Krieg’s face). And 2. It shows Luffy’s unshakeable willpower and persistence that led to him shattering Krieg’s armor.

7. Luffy vs Captain Kuro
Kuro was Luffy’s first real adversary, and as such, Luffy was never really pushed to any sort of limit like he normally is, but what makes this fight great is how Luffy finally turns up the intensity once he sees Kuro indiscriminately tearing up his own crew. One of the main reasons why fights in One Piece are so great is because as much as they are about the action, they’re often more so about the emotions brought forth from the action. This was one of the first times we get to see Luffy drop his cheerful happy-go-lucky demeanor and get down to business, which is what makes this fight stand out.
6. Sanji vs Bon Clay
Sanji vs Bon Clay is great because it’s a battle of contrasting personalities, but very similar fighting styles. Both Sanji and Mr. 2 are hand-to-hand (or more specifically foot-to-foot) combat experts, which leads to what is probably the closest One Piece ever gets to a straight-up martial arts fight, which is still admittedly not very close at all. However, this fight is nonetheless great because of its balance between humor and action. Bon Clay is hilarious in general, but pairing him up with Sanji and having him use his power to put on Nami’s face in order to essentially turn Sanji into a love-struck Looney Tunes character is perfect.
5. Zoro vs Mihawk
This fight is noteworthy more so for it being a character-defining moment for Zoro than the actual fight itself. Zoro’s ultimate goal is to become the world’s greatest swordsman, and wouldn’t you know it, early on in his adventure he actually runs into the man who currently holds that title: Dracule Mihawk. Zoro challenges Mihawk to a duel and is absolutely humiliated when Mihawk defeats him using a weapon he believes accurately represents Zoro’s current strength level: a tiny dagger. Despite Zoro’s lack of strength, Mihawk respects his will and does Zoro the honor of leaving him a gigantic scar with his trusty Black Sword. It’s a loss that’s permanently etched not only in Zoro’s mind, but his body as well.
4. Usopp and Chopper vs Ms. Merry Christmas and Mr. 4
Few anime series are able to match One Piece in terms of its ability to put on extremely entertaining unconventional fights, and as far as those unconventional fights go, Usopp and Chopper vs Ms. Merry Christmas and Mr. 4 is up there with the best of them. This fight is just such a great show of how Usopp’s ingenuity makes up for his lack of physical strength. It’s funny, it’s brutal to watch at times, and most importantly, it helps to firmly establish one of the best friendships in all of One Piece: that of Usopp and Chopper.
3. Zoro vs Daz Bonez
For the most part, Zoro gets the heck beaten out of him throughout this fight. Daz Bones, aka Mr. 1, seems like the rare opponent that Zoro would stand no chance against. Zoro, of course, only uses swords to attack, while Daz Bones is able to literally turn his whole body into steel, making him virtually impervious to swords. Which is one of the reasons why this fight is so great. It represents a turning point for Zoro. His own "Super Saiyan" moment, so to speak, where he's finally able to push past his limits, allowing him to finally cut through steel. After taking an absurd amount of abuse, Zoro stands up, calmly reminds us of how much of a badass he is by letting Mr. 1 know that he won't be taking anymore of his attacks, and then proceeds to execute what is one of the coolest one-hit-knock-outs of the whole series: his Shishi Son Son technique.
2. Luffy vs Arlong
Forget the first 130 episodes, Luffy vs Arlong is quite simply one of the best fights in all of One Piece. Arlong is one of the most despicable villains in the series, and all throughout the Arlong Park arc, we’re just waiting for that moment where Luffy’s finally able to get his hands on him. And once he does, it doesn’t disappoint. The bulk of the fight itself is great, but what really seals the deal and makes it unforgettable is the final moment where Luffy not only stomps Arlong’s head into the ground, but brings Arlong’s entire castle along with it, symbolizing the destruction of Nami’s traumatic past and releasing her from his grasp for good.
1. Luffy vs Crocodile 3
Like Arlong, Crocodile is another one of those villains that you’re just waiting for Luffy to finally beat the crap out of. Unlike Arlong though, it actually took Luffy three tries to finally prevail, which made this moment all the sweeter. There’s just something inherently badass about Luffy coating his punches with his own blood in order to deal damage to Crocodile, but beyond that, this fight is just filled to the brim with excellent shots of Luffy beating the hell out of Crocodile, culminating in one of the most iconic moments of the whole series, where Luffy punches Crocodile through the ceiling with a Gomu Gomu no Storm, all to the tune of Dvorak’s New Age Symphony.What’s your favorite fight in One Piece?
