Boa Hancock is the only female Yonko in One Piece. How strong is she compared to the others?
Kodoani.com – Boa Hancock is the only female member of the now defunct Seven Great Pirates, and is therefore one of the most powerful female pirates in the world. One Piece. She rules the island of Amazon Lily, inhabited by the Kuja, a tribe of female warriors, where men are forbidden to enter.
Hancock’s strength is disguised by her usual comedic portrayal of the series, including her falling back when she falls in love with innocent Luffy. In fact, her abilities are first-class, thanks in part to her Devil Fruit and Haki mastery.
Hancock’s Devil Fruit
Hancock was forced to eat the Mero Mero no Mi (Love Fruit) while being enslaved by the World Nobles. It is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows her to turn anyone attracted to her to stone. Hancock’s beauty is legendary, and thus the fruit’s power works on almost everyone she meets, regardless of gender. It can be completed in many different ways.
At long range, Hancock can fire a heart-shaped beam (Mero Mero Mellow) or a heart-shaped arrow (Slave Arrow) to turn opponents to stone, or by kissing them. She can also turn enemies to stone at close range by attacking them. Hancock can also restore anyone she petrifies back to normal.
Mero Mero no Mi has some limits on its power. People like Luffy are immune to having a pure heart, and other extremely powerful pirates like Sir Crocodile and Dracule Mihawk seem to be able to resist its effects. Vice Admiral Momonga was also able to counteract its effects by stabbing himself in the arm, with the pain he felt overpowering any sense of lust. Although Hancock’s Devil Fruit is powerful, the way she uses it alongside it is what makes her particularly dangerous.
In addition to his Devil Fruit, Hancock is an extremely skilled bare-arms fighter who, like Sanji, seems to enjoy fighting with kicks. Her attacks are powerful enough to break rocks and easily knock out Pacifistas. Like the other Kuja warriors, she is also a master at ranged combat, which makes the target of her Slave Arrow attack near-perfect.
Hancock is also a proficient user of Haki, and is one of the few people in the world who can use all three. These include Observational Haki, which allows her to sense things others cannot and read her opponent’s moves, Armed Haki, which she uses to augment her physical attacks. her and the extremely rare Haki the Conqueror, an ability she shares so far only with Luffy and former Admiral Sengoku of the Fleet.
As far as the Lords go in terms of strength, Hancock might be near the top, not quite approaching Yonko-level power like Mihawk. However, the fact that she defeats some of the others with ease makes her more resilient than weaker lords like Buggy the Clown and Gecko Moria. Hancock also benefits from having her own island base (and being the only one currently owning it) and a large standing army to go with it. Her older sisters Marigold and Sandersonia are also masters of Observation Haki and are Zoan-type Devil Fruit users, greatly increasing the power of her crew. Hancock was so assured of her and her crew’s strength that she chose to fight when her Lordship was revoked and the Marines attempted to capture Amazon Lily and capture her. How this battle unfolds is still unknown, and what is Hancock’s current fate.
However, some inferences can be made. Hancock’s Devil Fruits effectively give any number more favorable than her argument, only those who can resist her charms pose a serious threat to her. that. She most likely managed to protect Amazon Lily or get out of it unscathed. Only time will tell for sure.
