Every One of ZORO’s Swords in One Piece (RANKED BY FANS!!!)

Roronoa Zoro is without a doubt one of the most well-known characters in the One Piece series. Zoro, much like Luffy, has the goal of being the greatest in his particular field; specifically, he aspires to outdo Dracule Mihawk, his hero and adversary, who is widely regarded as the finest swordsman in the world. 

Zoro’s goal is to be the greatest swordsman in the entire world. At the present, Zoro wields 3 swords, although, during his career, he has employed a wide variety of blades. In this post, we will describe all of Zoro’s known swords, walk you through what each one is capable of, and then rate them according to their relative power.

Sandai Kitetsu

It is rumored that this sword, along with all others bearing Kitetsu’s name, is doomed, and that anyone who wields it will meet a grisly end. Because the edge of the Sandai Kitetsu is so sharp, it is much simpler to use it for slicing. 

When Zoro took it to try his luck against the jinx, the one who had had it before he attempted to alert him that he’d chop off his arm if he was unsuccessful.

Zoro buried the blade so deeply into the ground that just a quarter of it could be seen protruding from the soil after the sword had gone through him without doing any injury. Zoro, on the other hand, has remarked that the sword is a “troublesome girl” due to the fact that it possesses an intellect by itself. 

It should also be mentioned that Zoro has the ability to “feel” the existence of this blade even when he cannot see it. Zoro makes use of this sword as one of his 3 for the santoryu once he has acquired it.

Two Unnamed Katana

Two katana without names that he was used concurrently with the Wado Ichimonji for an undetermined amount of time. They were annihilated in Zoro’s first battle against Dracule Mihawk, which Zoro won.

Wado Ichimonji

In the hands of a skilled swordsman, the Wado Ichimonji, which is regarded as one of the 22 greatest katanas in the world (eleven Saijo Ô Wazamono and twenty-one Ô Wazamono), may be an exceptionally lethal weapon. Mihawk demonstrated that he had a sturdy blade by breaking both of Zoro’s swords, and Zoro was the only one who withstood him. This is evidence that he is very tough.

This is the blade that Zoro uses, and it is the one that he constantly keeps in his mouth. Tashigi wants to catch Zoro in order to retrieve this blade since, in her opinion, a blade of this caliber shouldn’t be in the possession of a pirate. This is one of the reasons why she is on Zoro’s trail. 

Shimotsuki Kozaburo is credited for forging Wadô Ichimonji, although he has been absent from the Land of the Wa for more than half a century. After then, Kuina, who only sometimes wielded the sword, became the owner of it.

Following the passing of his daughter, Zoro’s mentor Kshiro agreed to fulfill his student’s request that he hand over the sword to him. Tashigi is now pursuing Zoro for that sword because she could not comprehend how such an exquisite weapon could end up in the possession of a pirate.


Zoro said that Yubashiri was an “excellent katana” as he saw how simple it was to use the blade, despite the fact that it was an incredibly light weapon. Its small weight enabled rapid movements and reactions, and it maintained its sharpness so that it could be used effectively for cutting. 

The Yubashiri was one of Zoro’s 3 swords that he utilized in the santoryu. It was often used in the two-sword style, together with the Sandai Kitetsu, as Zoro’s primary weapon. Zoro chose to use the Shusui as a replacement for this sword when it was broken.

Zoro was forced to improvise after Sogeking unintentionally handcuffed his right hand with several seastone handcuffs during the Battle of Enies Lobby. 

Zoro mixed the Yubashiri and Sogeking to develop the “hana sword arashi,” and used Sogeking as the hilt of the sword he created by combining the two. When Zoro carried out the strikes on Sogeking, Sogeking remarked that they made him feel lightheaded. 

Once they finally were able to obtain the keys and unhand themselves from the handcuffs, Zoro went back to utilizing the sword in the usual manner.


In addition to being one of the 21 Ô Wazamono and the masterwork of the famed swordsmith Shimotsuki Kozaburo, the Enma is widely regarded as one of the finest blades in the world. 

In fact, Kozuki Hiyori believed that the Enma could successfully take the place of the fabled Shuusui. According to Tenguyama Hitetsu, Enma has the ability to “slice into the abyss of the underground” (together with Ame no Habakiri, who possesses the ability to “slice the sky itself”).

Once handled to its maximum potential, Enma has an incredible cutting force. Both she and Ame no Habakiri, when wielded by Oden, were the first such acknowledged weapons capable of inflicting damage to Kaido and leaving him with a significant scar. 

41 years earlier, when Oden was just 18 years old, he utilized Enma (in conjunction with Ame no Habakiri) to make a clean cut through the great mountain deity and then hardened him with Armament Haki. 

In addition to this, Oden was capable of protecting himself against Whitebeard’s Murakumogiri, which was a Saijo to Wazamono grade naginata, by using both of his swords.

When employed, Enma has the peculiar property of extracting excessive quantities of “Ryuo” (Armament Haki) out of its user, causing it to slice much more harshly than it was originally designed to.

Making him incredibly difficult to control, to the point that Oden was the only person who had previously mastered Enma until Zoro was offered the chance to do so.

Zoro, who had just finished the first round of testing the saber, managed to mistakenly chop off a significant portion of the cliff when he was intending to cut down simply one tree. As a result, Enma not only forced hardening but also emaciated his whole arm.

Hitetsu then acknowledged that a regular swordsman attempting to utilize Enma would have all of his Haki depleted from him, turning him into a dry husk. However, as Zoro illustrates, with adequate expertise of Haki, a person could indeed push the Haki derived by Enma to flow back out from the blade towards the user’s body. This allows the user to keep their Haki intact while using Enma.

Hitetsu believes that Enma will level up if Zoro is successful in his attempt to turn her into a perpetual Dark Blade.


Shusui, also classified as Ô Wazamono, is regarded as one of the top thirty-two katanas in the world. It’s the sword that allowed the great warrior Ryuma to accomplish everything that he did, hence it is also known as the national treasure of Wano Country. 

Following its use in a great number of conflicts by his side, the blade of the sword darkened. Zoro had already formed the opinion that Shusui was likely to be the deciding factor in the conflict with Kaido’s Hundred Beasts Crew before he obtained Enma.

Due to the fact that Ryuma’s zombie was brought to life by Brook’s shadow, it employs the Swordsmanship Style used by the latter. Ryuuma completely reimagined this combat style by combining his natural prowess with the might of Shusui. 

The result was a technique that was far more dangerous than the one that Brook had been using. In addition, Zoro said that if the battle had continued for much longer, Shusui would have been able to break both his Wado Ichimonji and his Sandai Kitetsu, despite the fact that both of these Meito is excellent.

The wielder of this sword will see a significant rise in the potency of their assaults. Zoro first displayed this by performing Hyakuhachi Pound Ho versus Oz. The blade of air formed by Shusui was so powerful that it collected the blades of air made by Zoro’s remaining two weapons, Wado Ichimonji and Sandai Kitetsu, to create a single blade of air that had 10 times the devastating force.

Zoro, upon obtaining Shusui, said that its finest characteristic is its hardness and that the blade would not bend even a millimeter if a dinosaur trod on it. Zoro’s statement was spoken after Zoro had received the sword. 

This was shown by the fact that he was able to parry a punch from Oz while holding the blade in a horizontal posture. Despite the fact that this blade is great in many ways, it does have a few defects.

One of them is its somewhat heavy nature, which demands some adjustment period. In point of fact, Zoro notes very quickly that it is considerably heavier than his previous katana, which had been rusted by Shu, and Yubashiri, and he characterizes it as being “difficult to manage.”

In addition, as he was engaged in combat with Oz, he came to the conclusion that he wasn’t quite able to completely master this blade. Zoro was capable of overcoming Shusui’s weaknesses as a result of the hard training that he received from Dracule Mihawk, and the blade subsequently became Zoro’s favorite. 

After the time jump, he demonstrates his newly acquired mastery of the sword by casually slashing a pirate ship in two to demonstrate his prowess with the weapon.
