Zoro VS Kaku
First fight on the list of top 10 battles from One Piece is between Zoro and Kaku. While fighting against CP9 members, Zoro goes head to head with Kaku.

By the end of the fight, it is no surprise that Whitebeard emerges a victor.
Luffy VS Doflamingo
Next on the list is the match between Luffy and Doflamingo. Doflamingo is one of the most disliked villains in the One Piece Universe. He is a man with countless evil deeds. And is a powerful opponent with his Haki. The match between him and Luffy is a classic moment from the franchise. As Luffy unleashes the Fourth Gear for the first time. Though powerful, the evil villain is no match against the Straw Hat Captain.
Blackbeard VS Ace
Next is the battle between fire and darkness. The match between Ace and Marshall D. Teach, Blackbeard. Ace hunts Blackbeard to exact revenge for betraying the Whitebeard crew. The resulting fight between the two destroys a whole town. The battle also unveils the real motives of Blackbeard. And introduces him as a powerful villain of the series. The power from both pirates creates an explosion and levels a whole town.
Luffy VS Sir Crocodile
The next epic showdown on the list is between Luffy and Sir Crocodile. The manipulative leader of Baroque Works almost kills Luffy. He buries him under sand and beats him twice. However, the third and final time, Luffy uses his blood to solidify the villain to beat him. He sends Sir Crocodile fling into the sky to save the kingdom of Alabasta. As Sir Crocodile tries to take control over the kingdom.
Zoro VS Ryuma
Another epic battle under Zoro’s belt is his match against the undead Ryuma. The legendary Samurai is brought back to life in the Thriller Bark arc. Zoro fights against the Samurai to win the black blade Shusui. Despite being dead, he puts up a good fight against the swordsman. Zoro pushes his limits and defeats the Samurai easily. In the end, Zoro wins the black blade. The fight showcases the swordsmanship of Zoro. Thus, it is a worthy addition to the list of top 10 One Piece Battles.
Luffy VS Lucci
This is one of the most-watched fights in anime history. It is the showdown between Luffy and Rob Lucci. Rob Lucci is a leopard hybrid and the leader of CP9. Despite knowing he might lose, Luffy stands against Lucci to save his friends. Even exhausted and severely wounded, he still tries to stop Lucci. His willpower and brute strength keep pushing him against his rival. Lucci loses the fight underestimating the determination of Luffy.
The Straw Hats VS Pacifista
It is very rare for the Straw Hats crew to fight together. However, one of the iconic battles from the One Piece Franchise is their fight against a Pacifista. A Pacifista is a cyborg specifically made to kill pirates. And the whole crew fights together to stop the cyborg. All crew members push their limits during the match, trying to fight off a single Pacifista. The fight is entertaining and engaging as it showcases each member with the best of their powers.
Luffy VS Usopp
On the top spot ranks the showdown between Luffy and Usopp. The battle between the two crewmates is heartbreaking and painful to watch. The two crewmates butt heads over the ownership of Going Merry. Luffy wants to leave it behind for the safety of the crew. But, Usopp challenges him as he does not want to leave the ship behind. The Going Merry was a gift to Usopp from his love, Kaya. The fight is easily one of the most critical battles in the One Piece Universe.
