You are watching: Vice admirals one piece
The Marines are one of the superpowers in the world of One Piece and they are necessary to ensure the balance of power. Without the Marines, the pirates would cause unimaginable amounts of destruction to life and property. There are some pirate crews that do good stuff, but they are very few in number. So, the Marines are absolutely needed to ensure law and order.

There are many ranks within the marines: Captains, Vice-Admirals, Admirals and Fleet Admiral. The Fleet Admiral is the highest rank in the Marines followed by the Admirals and then Vice-Admirals. There are many characters that have held the position and here we are going to rank the strongest known Marine Vice-Admirals.
Jaguar D. Saul is probably one of the few likable Marines in the series. Saul was introduced in Robin"s flashback. He came to Ohara as a castaway where met Robin and he really helped her through a tough phase.
Saul was a former Navy vice-admiral. He was a capable fighter and when it is combined with his size, it makes him a formidable opponent. Saul"s inhumane strength allowed him to lift a ginormous warship with ease but was eventually killed by Aokiji.
Onigumo made his appearance all the way back at Enies Lobby. He was one of the Vice-Admirals leading the Buster Call. Onigumo has a particular fighting style and unlike most Marines, he used sabers instead of katanas. He is also capable of using Haki.
He also possesses an unknown devil fruit that allows him to grow three pairs of spider-like arms. This allows Onigumo to use his eight sword style. He has also shown considerable skill when it comes to stealth as he managed to handcuff Marco during the Marineford arc.
He is one of the most underrated side characters in the series. Momonga made his first appearance at Enies Lobby, he was in charge of the Buster Call. Momonga is a perceptive man and was able to figure out how to avoid Boa Hancock"s attack.

Momonga"s physical strength is also admirable as he was able to kill Sea King without any difficulty. Momonga can use at least a few of the Rokushiki techniques. He is also able to use two types of Haki.
Tsuru is one of the oldest Marines. She joined the Navy at the same time as Garp and Sengoku and is a very experienced fighter who"s treated with respect by everyone. She has the powers of the Woshu Woshu no Mi, that allow her to wash out people and objects as if they were clothes.
Tsuru is also a user of Haki just like all Vice-Admirals. In the past, she always fought Donquixote Doflamingo and it is actually amazing that Doflamingo used to run away from her.
Smoker is one of Luffy"s main enemies and he has been chasing Luffy for a pretty long time. Smoker actually managed to capture Luffy at Loguetown, but he escaped thanks to Monkey D. Dragon. Since the time-skip, Smoker has become much more powerful. He can use two types of Haki.
Smoker possesses the Moku Moku no Mi, which allows him to turn his body into smoke. Despite being an ordinary devil fruit power, Smoker has turned it into a powerful weapon.
Vergo was an undercover pirate working in the Marines and a top executive of the Donquixote Family. Vergo had extremely strong Armament Haki and he could even cover his entire body with it. Vergo"s mastery over Haki was evident from his fight with Smoker, who is also a Vice-Admiral.

Vergo absolutely thrashed Smoker all around the place, but it should be kept in mind that Smoker was trying to retrieve Law"s heart. However, it"s likely that even if Smoker was not fighting to regain Law"s heart, he would have still lost to Vergo.
Kuzan, or Aokiji, is one of the coolest characters in the series. Kuzan was not always an Admiral, but he rose through the ranks to reach that level. He is a follower of "Lazy Justice," and he is probably one of the few Marines who don"t want to kill every pirate that they came across.
Kuzan wields the Hie Hie no Mi that allows him to create and control ice. He was chosen by Sengoku to be the successor after his retirement. However, Kuzan lost the decisive duel against Sakazuki. Shortly afterward, he left the Marines and joined the Blackbeard Pirates.
Follower of "Unclear Justice," Borsalino is the next powerful after Kuzan. More commonly known as Kizaru, he is the oldest Admiral in the Marines. Borsalino is a laid back individual most of the time but, once he gets going, it"s very difficult to stop him.
He possesses the Pika Pika no Mi, that grants him control over light. Borsalino is arguably the quickest character in One Piece, mainly due to his devil fruit power. Borsalino has fought against famous names such as Marco and Rayleigh and is one of the Navy"s best fighters.
Probably the most hated Marine in the entire series, Sakazuki, finishes only 2nd on this list. Sakazuki"s alias is Akainu, which means "Red Dog." Currently, he is the Fleet Admiral of the Marines. He gained the position after beating Kuzan in a duel on Punk Hazard which lasted 10 days. Sakazuki has the power of the Magu Magu no Mi, which allows him to create and manipulate magma. This devil fruit has one of the highest offensive powers in the series.
He is a follower of "Absolute Justice", so he is willing to go to any lengths to erase pirates. He is ruthless and doesn"t like making mistakes. He downed the ship carrying the citizens of Ohara in order to make sure that there weren"t any scholars that could sneak in.
1 Monkey D. Garp
Finally at the top of the list is none other than the "Hero of the Marines," Monkey D. Garp. Garp is one of the biggest legends in the One Piece. He is the strongest Marine ever and he"s probably the only Marine that comes close to the power of a Yonko.
Garp has rejected promotions throughout his life. Once he reached the position of Vice-Admiral, he never accepted any promotions. Garp is a real monster when it comes to strength. He was able to break mountains with his Haki enhanced fists. He even fought against Rocks D. Xebec, who was considered the biggest threat to the World Government.
