I have no sympathy for criminals, but for family I do.
~ Garp to Ace


Monkey D. Garp is a Marine vice admiral. He is the father of Monkey D. Dragon, the grandfather of Monkey D. Luffy, and the adoptive grandfather of Portgas D. Ace. He took charge of both Koby and Helmeppo's training. After the war, he became a Marine Instructor to train recruits, though still retaining the rank of vice admiral.

Powers and Stats

Tier: 6-B | 6-B

Name: Monkey D. Garp, moniker "The Fist", also called "Hero of the Marines"

Origin: One Piece

Gender: Male

Classification: Human, Marine, Vice-Admiral, Instructor

Age: 76 (Pre-Timeskip), 78 (Post-Timeskip)

Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant, Haki User (Proficient Busoshoku and Kenbunshoku Haki user), Extreme Pain Tolerance

Attack Potency: Country level (Frequently fought with Gol D. Roger and cornered him on several occasions. Many decades ago he along with Roger defeated Rocks D. Xebec, who was the captain of Linlin, Kaido, Whitebeard, Shiki, and other bigshot pirates. He is stated to have destroyed mountains by himself, using them as punching bags. Defeated Prime Chinjao and disfigured his head. Defeated Shiki alongside Sengoku. He is hailed as the hero of marines and thus making him one of the strongest characters in the series) | Country level (As strong as he was in his prime)

Speed: Relativistic+ (Comparable to Roger) | Relativistic+ (Was able to land a surprise attack on a speeding Marco mid-air from a front position)

Lifting Strength: Class T (Comparable to Roger) | Class T (Stronger than Marco)

Striking Strength: Country Class (Frequently traded blows with Gol D. Roger) | Country Class (One of the strongest marines physically)

Durability: Country level (He could take attacks from the likes of Whitebeard and similarly powerful characters back in his younger years) | Country level (Scaling from his attack potency)

Stamina: Extremely High (During his introduction, Morgan slashed his torso with his axe, and despite the bleeding, Garp didn't notice the wound until his subordinates pointed it, arguing that he fell asleep and not even then he felt pain from it. Fought in the Marineford war, however, he didn't participate as an active fighter in it. Characters comparable, if not inferior to him, have been able to fight on equal terms for 10 days. Back at his prime he should have been much better in this regard)

Range: Standard melee range, up to hundreds of meters with projectiles

Standard Equipment: None notable

Intelligence: Highly experienced and adept fighter, should possess formidable ability to marshal tropes as he held the post of Vice Admiral for 27+ years and led the marines from the front lines since Gol D. Roger's time, the former Fleet Admiral Kong also repeatedly tried to promote him to the rank of Admiral, which indicates he boasts outstanding strategic intelligence and tactical skills.

Weaknesses: None notable

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Haki: There are normally two types of Haki regular people can tap into: the Kenbunshoku Haki which allows individuals to sense the presence of others, and Busoshoku Haki which allows individuals to create an invisible armor around them. There is however a third type of Haki, Haoshoku Haki, that only a few individuals can use. It is currently unknown if Garp is one of these people.

  • Busōshoku Haki (Color of Armaments): Garp's application with this type of Haki has no defined limitations, but he should be advanced with this ability seeing as how he can easily overpower other Busoshoku Haki users with ease.
    • Busoshoku: Koka (Color of Armaments: Hardening): Garp uses Busōshoku Haki to drastically harden parts of his body (typically his fists). Whereas basic Busoshoku Haki surrounds the user's body with a hard armor, Koka hardens the body itself, giving a larger increase in attack power.
  • Kenbunshoku Haki (Color of Observation): As a Vice Captain of the Marines, Garp has some knowledge on this ability. His usage of this ability should be somewhat of a Proficient level.

Ai yaru Kobushi (Fist performing Love): A punch Garp uses to discipline Luffy, as well as Ace during his childhood.

Genkotsu Meteor (Fist Meteorite): Garp throws a cannonball. Due to his inhuman strength he can throw them easily and their power surpasses that of cannonballs fired from actual cannons.

  • Genkotsu Ryuseigun (Fist Meteor Shower): Garp continuously throws cannonballs in quick succession.
