Blackbeard's Crew - One Piece

Blackbeard's Crew is a significantly powerful pirate crew containing a group of primary antagonists led by Marshall D. Teach, also known as "Blackbeard". The Crew is composed of 10 fleets. Their captain was once a member of Whitebeard's Crew (and Portgas D. Ace's subordinate) until he killed one of his crew members for a Demon Fruit and defected while fending for himself and forming his own crew. Blackbeard was Crocodile's replacement among the 7 Captain Corsairs after defeating Ace for the position, but gave up his position after abusing his privileges by recruiting other Impel Down members from level 6. During the ellipse, Teach usurped the late Whitebeard's status as Emperor.

Blackbeard’s Crew - One Piece

Strength of the Crew

Blackbeard's Pirates are much stronger than any normal pirate crew that has appeared so far. Their attack on Drum Island was overwhelming, so much so that the egotistical King Wapol fled without even trying to fight. Also, the fact that their captain took a direct attack from Ace and immediately got up shows that the crew has uncommon strength. They were also able to break into Impel Down and reach level 4 without too much difficulty (despite the fact that Impel Down is known to be the most secure prison in the World Government). In addition to their great strength and endurance, each member has a particular profession in the crew (though we don't know what positions the latest recruits hold). In a way, they are the evil version of the Straw Hat Pirates: both crews are abnormally strong despite their respective sizes and recruit only highly specialized members.

The Blackbeard Pirates (except Wolf) killed the legendary pirate Whitebeard in a nine-on-one battle and gained the upper hand because of the severe wounds inflicted on Newgate during the Marine Ford War. An additional revelation of their strength is the fact that they refused Jewelry Bonney, the only female member of the Eleven Supernovae, into their crew as they deemed her too weak; however, Teach offered her to become his wife, an offer that Jewelry obviously declined.

The crew has recruited four more prisoners, criminals who have committed crimes so heinous that their existence has been erased from history; this is why they have been locked up on level 6, a level kept secret: The Eternal Hell. The four prisoners recruited are: "The Colossal Warship" Sanjuan Wolf, "The Drunkard" Vasco Shot, "The Crescent Moon Hunter" Catarina Devon and "The Corrupt King" Avalo Pizarro. Although they have not shown their powers, they are among the most feared legendary criminals in history. The Marines can't even imagine what would happen if one of these prisoners were to escape from Impel Down prison. Indeed, during the riot in the underwater prison, Blackbeard selected them in a "struggle for survival" among the prisoners on Level 6, indicating that they are the most powerful prisoners in the entire Impel Down complex.

However, the true strength of the Blackbeard Pirates lies in their fearsome captain, Marshall D. Teach, better known as "Blackbeard. Initially little known, Teach managed to inflict a permanent scar on the left eye of Red Shanks when he was still a member of the Whitebeard Crew before he ate the Yami Yami no Mi (Shanks is a Yonko, one of the 4 strongest pirates in the world). Teach also managed to defeat two of the first four commanders of the fleet, Satch and Portgas D. Ace in this case.

He served as Grand Corsair for a time before resigning, which he did after going to Impel Down to recruit four very powerful prisoners. With the help of his crew, Blackbeard killed "The Strongest Man in the World" Edward Newgate aka "Whitebeard". He then acquired the power of Gura Gura no Mi, the most powerful Paramecia fruit, making Teach the only man to possess two Demon Fruits. Knowing perfectly well the territories of Whitebeard, the Gorosei (Council of the Five Elders) judged that this pirate was the closest to replace the deceased Yonko, a prediction that unfortunately came true.

After the two-year ellipse, it seems that the crew has become much more powerful, which is one of the two big changes according to Jinbe along with Akainu who became the Admiral Commander-in-Chief of the Navy forces. The Blackbeard Pirates are looking for Demon Fruit users to steal their powers and thus greatly increase their strength. This suggests that each member of the crew would have multiple skills (although this is currently limited to Teach).

The crew has grown: indeed, since Burgess has become the commander of the 1st fleet of Blackbeard's crew, this would mean that there are other fleets.

We learn from Gatz that Blackbeard now has 10 "Giant" Captains assisting him, with Burgess being one of them. Recently, the Crew has allied with former Navy Admiral Kuzan, which makes them all the more dangerous.

Blackbeard’s Crew - One Piece


The crew had a raft made of four giant wooden logs tied together until the Arc Jaya. On the sides of the ship were cannons. A large mast stood in the center, supporting the ship's main sail, which featured the Jolly Roger from Blackbeard's Crew, as well as two other smaller sails. At the top of the mast, the crew's flag was also flying. The raft moved with the wind, but the crew also used paddles to steer. Jesus Burgess and Doc Q were seen rowing. This raft was destroyed by the Knock-Up Stream. It was repaired but the crew chose to take a Navy ship to Impel Down instead. After the Battle of Marine Ford, they tried to get a raft back, but Sanjuan Wolf damaged it. To replace it, they captured Jewelry Bonney and offered to trade her for a warship, but the arrival of Akainu caused them to flee.

Before One Piece

In the One Piece Green: Secret Pieces Databook, which shows the first trials for One Piece, the crew members did not have the names they have now. Marshall D. Teach was originally named Everything D. Teach. Van Augur was named Van Wagot, Jesus Burgess was named Lapaix Jesus, Vasco Shot had a Viking-like appearance and was named Basurero Shot. Catarina Devon was designed to be prettier. Three characters were imagined but never saw the light of day: a prankster man named King Joker (キング・ジョーカー, Kingu Jookaa, literally "King Joker"), a man named Last Lion (ラスト - ライオン, Rasuto Raion), and a fox woman named Kitsune (キツネ, Kitsune). The original ideas for his characters were dropped, and King Joker's appearance was passed on to Vasco Shot.
