For the best Swordsman, One Piece's Zoro Needs to Beat Straw Hat

Zoro has been fighting some of the most skilled swordsmen in the world

because he dreams of becoming the greatest swordsman.

His toughest challenge may be his crewmate.

Zoro has had a singular goal all his life: to be the best One Piece swordsman.

Brook, his Straw Hat Pirates teammate and Skeleton King, is a major obstacle to Zoro's dream.

Brook, however, was a skilled pirate before he met Luffy and the other crew members.

Brook was a captain and a key member of the Rumbar Pirates,

who plied the Grand Line waters during the Gol-D Rogers era.

He is a highly skilled buccaneer, whose preferred weapon is the sword.
