Roronoa Zoro is a tough guy in the Straw Hat Pirates crew, and he’s really strong. Zoro starts his adventure with Luffy in Shell’s Town and dreams of becoming the “Strongest Swordsman in the World.” That’s even more awesome than Dracule Mihawk, a super-strong swordsman.
Over time, Zoro has been working hard to get better and closer to his dream. He’s gotten stronger in body and mind. Since he’s a swordsman, he relies on his sword when he fights.
Here are the top 10 moves from Roronoa Zoro in One Piece.
Strongest Roronoa Zoro Attacks
1. Santoryu Ogi: Rokudo no Tsuji
Another name for this move is “Crossing of the Six Paths,” it’s one of Zoro’s special sword techniques. He used it for the first time when heading to Fishman Island and fought against Surume, the Kraken.
As you might guess, this move is super strong. Zoro could chop off the Kraken’s arms and legs using it.
But sadly, Zoro hasn’t used this move much after that time, which is a shame. Still, it’s an impressive move!
2. Kiki Kyutoryu: Ashura
Before the time skip in One Piece, Zoro used a technique called Asura when they were at Enie Lobby. Just so you know, Asura could be one of Zoro’s most powerful moves. But we haven’t seen him use it with Haki after the time skip.
I’m pretty sure that if Zoro were to use it again, it would be much stronger than when he used it against Kaku back during the Enies Lobby arc.
3. Ittoryu: Daishinkan
Daishinkan is one of Zoro’s moves when using just one sword. He used it first against Monet from the Donquixote Pirates when they were on Punk Hazard.
He does this move using a sword called Shuusui, which is one of the really strong Wazamono swords in One Piece. Daishinkan means ‘Great Dragon Surprise,’ and that’s what the movie is like. It sends a powerful shockwave that can cut through anything it hits.
When Zoro used it against Monet, it was strong enough to cut through her without Haki on the sword. It’s interesting to note how Zoro uses this move might change since he’s no longer using Shusui.
4. Ittoryu Iai: Shishi Sonson
Roronoa Zoro has a move called Shishi Sonson. He uses it with his special sword, Wado Ichimonji. This move can be super deadly, especially if he uses Haki, like in the Movie Gold.
What Zoro does is like a strong punch, but it can slice through steel just like that. He learned it when he touched something called the ‘Breath of All Things’ for the first time.
This move is still strong, significantly when Zoro adds Haki to it. You can see that in Movie Gold, where he uses it to cut Dice in half.
5. Santoryu Ogi: Rengoku Onigiri
Onigiri is one of Zoro’s old but strong moves.
With this move, he can take down anyone in just one hit. That’s how mighty it is! Zoro uses all three of his swords to cut through his enemy.
In Wano Country, Zoro made Onigiri even stronger by adding Haki. When he fought Kamazo the Manslayer, Zoro did a special version called Rengoku Onigiri. He used Kamazo’s scythe instead of Shusui for this move.
6. Santoryu Ogi: Sanzen Sekai
Among Zoro’s three sword-style moves, Sanzen Sekai is the most powerful. But when he used it against Mihawk, Zoro couldn’t hurt him because Mihawk was much better at swordfighting.
But Zoro didn’t give up. He kept training super hard to get even stronger. In the Dressrosa arc, Zoro used Sanzen Sekai with Haki to cut through Pica. Even though Pica was covered in Haki, Zoro’s Haki was better, and his special moves beat Pica easily.
This is one of Zoro’s strongest moves ever. And it will probably be even stronger the next time a swordsman uses it.
7. Nanajuni Pound Ho
The move is named the “72 Pound Phoenix.” Zoro used this technique in the Wano arc. Since it’s called “720,” you know it’s a two-sword style move, but it’s really strong. He showed how strong it is when he used it against Orochi.
Zoro’s really good at using this move. He was pretty confident it could beat Orochi. But then Kyoshiro stepped in and basically made fun of the “720 Pound Phoenix,” just casually slapping it away.
8. Senhachiju Pound Ho
Another name for this move is the “1080 Pound Phoenix.” It’s one of Zoro’s toughest moves, and he used it first when he fought Pica from the Donquixote family.
Senhachiju Pound Ho is like a stronger version of Nanahyakuniju Pound Ho. The big difference between the two moves is that Senhachiju Pound Ho uses all three of Zoro’s swords. This lets him use the swords’ full power.
When Zoro used Senhachiju Pound Ho against Pica, it was strong enough to cut through Pica’s huge stone body.
9. Enma’s Slash
Recently, Roronoa Zoro got a new sword called Enma while he was in Wano Country. This sword is one of the really good Wazamono swords and used to belong to Kozuki Oden. Since Zoro got this sword, he’s become much, much stronger.
Just one swing of Enma can split a big cliff. But that’s mostly because this sword releases way more Haki than normal, which makes the swings super strong. Once Zoro gets better at controlling it, Enma might be able to do regular swings too. It’s interesting that Zoro hasn’t used any special moves with Enma yet.
10. Santoryu Ougi: Ichidai Sanzen Daisen Sekai
One of Roronoa Zoro’s most powerful moves is a secret technique called the three-sword style Ichidai Sanzen Daisen Sekai, or Three Thousand Great Thousand Worlds.
Zoro used this move to cut through a huge statue of Pica. He swung his swords really hard to make a super strong slash that sliced through Pica’s stone body. This move is like an upgraded version of Sanzen Sekai, and Zoro adds Haki to make his swords even stronger.
After using this move, Zoro hasn’t done it again. It’ll be interesting to see if he can do it without the help from Orlumbus’ air support like he had in Dressrosa.
