Aokiji. Good and powerful guy. I like him.
He can be extremely cool, strong, smart, stupid, pervert, jealous etc. Almost always with great results.
Zoro: Always been my favourite bad-ass character since his big speech at Water 7 when Ussop left the crew.
It's exactly like when you're starving for a very long time irl, then suddendly you eat something very rich. It's really bad, you can die from it.
Though it did get overplayed and annoying, his nosebleeds where somewhat justified considering his experience. That said, I don't see anymore life threatening nosebleeds in the future.
Usopp! No, Luffy! No, Zoro! No, Shanks! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, Garp!
Nah, it has to be Sanji. Based on appearance, fighting style, charm, attitude, comic relief and pure friggin' awesomeness.
No, not him. I nominate Usopp. Because the man deserves credit more than anybody had ever given him. Plus, Luffy and Shanks are already there, nominating my third favorite sure is needed. :P
Zoro. He's the baddest badass and shows what a real man should be: fearless and hardworking. Honorable mention goes to Luffy for the same reason, but he acts like a dumbass a lot. :P Both constantly seek to improve themselves, but Zoro makes it more evident. What he did for Luffy at the end of Thriller Bark arc just made him shoot up points in my book.
Definitively Usopp. It's so easy to like a badass character it's not even funny. Usopp is the character which I have the most admiration for. Being the weakest in the middle of superhuman was not that easy but he found his place amount the crew. Plus he is funny, the invention of Sogeking was his glory moment. The only thing that worries me is how Oda will handle him from now. I really hope he won't be just a guy using crazy pop green as he has been until now
I nominate Vice Admiral Smoker Man it feels good to write that title before his name....
Not only does he seem to be Luffy's "Garp", but he exemplifies all that is good and right about the Marines and about Justice.
He's also just insanely cool and sincerely himself.... Lots of respect....
I would expect that with his rebellious attitude and single minded desire to hunt Luffy down, he'd get more notice.
