The World Government is one of the most powerful organizations in the One Piece world, but it’s not invincible. Over the years, it has faced fierce attacks from various factions, including ancient kingdoms, pirate crews, and even revolutionary armies. Here are the six biggest attacks on the World Government in One Piece.
6. The Void Century
The earliest known attack on the World Government dates back to the Void Century, when the 20 kings united to stop the ancient kingdom. The World Government, seeing the ancient kingdom as a threat, attacked and defeated it. They even built the Ancient Weapons to aid in their victory. However, the true intentions of the ancient kingdom remain a mystery to this day.
5. Iron Giant
Almost 200 years ago, the World Government faced another documented attack. Dr. Vegapunk recently discovered that the Iron Giant, powered by ancient fuel, was created by people from the ancient kingdom. It attacked Mariejois and caused massive damage before being subdued by the World Government. How they defeated the Iron Giant remains unknown, but it occurred around the same time that the Fishman race was declared a separate species.
4. Rocks Pirates
The Rocks Pirates were a powerful crew that dominated the seas almost 40 years ago. Led by Rocks D. Xebec, the crew consisted of heavy hitters such as Edward Newgate, Charlotte Linlin, Kaido, and Shiki. Their goal was to become the rulers of the world and they conducted large-scale attacks wherever they wanted, even against the Celestial Dragons. However, the crew ultimately fell after a collective effort from the Roger Pirates and the Marines.
3. Straw Hat Pirates
In the Enies Lobby arc, the Straw Hat Pirates declared war on the World Government after the archeologist, Nico Robin, was taken prisoner. They infiltrated the Enies Lobby and burnt the World Government’s flag, which led to a direct conflict between the two groups. The ensuing events resulted in the destruction of the entire island.
2. Recent Reverie
In the recent Reverie after the Whole Cake Island arc, the Revolutionary Army launched another attack on the World Government. Led by Sabo and three out of five of their army commanders, they infiltrated Mary Geoise and burned the World Government’s flag. They even managed to successfully rescue Bartholomew Kuma, one of their members, who had been turned into a slave.
1. Final Saga
According to Eiichiro Oda, the final saga of One Piece will feature the biggest war yet, with the World Government facing off against all their enemies. The war, which Oda has teased will make Marineford look small in comparison, has been slowly building up since the beginning of the series. It will be the ultimate showdown that will determine the fate of the One Piece world and its characters.
In conclusion, the World Government may be a formidable force, but it is not untouchable. All these attacks on the World Government have shown that there are always those who will oppose their rule. It remains to be seen how the final saga will play out, but one thing is for sure: it will be epic.
