One Piece Online: Character Origins – Blackbeard

2 months ago By Nicole Cau


Marshall D. Teach, widely known as Blackbeard, is a fearsome pirate captain and admiral of the Blackbeard Pirates. Renowned as one of the Four Emperors, Blackbeard possesses unique abilities, including the rare feat of wielding two Devil Fruits. In this article, we will delve into his background, tactical skills, and his mastery over the Yami Yami no Mi and Gura Gura no Mi Devil Fruits.

Early Career and Rise to Power:

Blackbeard began his pirate journey as an apprentice with the Whitebeard Pirates, eventually becoming a member of their 2nd Division. However, he betrayed the crew by killing Thatch, the 4th division commander, in order to acquire the Yami Yami no Mi Devil Fruit. After a brief stint as one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea, he resigned and returned from Impel Down with powerful prisoners to strengthen his crew. His audacious actions, including the murder of Whitebeard and the subsequent theft of his Gura Gura no Mi power, solidified his position as one of the Four Emperors.

Tactical Skills and Intelligence:

Blackbeard is renowned for his tactical skills and cunning nature. He is a master planner, devising calculated schemes such as infiltrating the Whitebeard Pirates to obtain the Yami Yami Devil Fruit and strategically choosing to confront Whitebeard at his weakest moment to secure the Gura Gura Devil Fruit. However, his overconfidence and occasional carelessness can lead to him letting his guard down.

Physical Strength and Endurance:

Blackbeard possesses remarkable physical strength, endurance, and durability. During battles with formidable opponents like Ace, Luffy, and Sengoku, he displayed immense power and resilience. Despite the amplified pain caused by his Devil Fruit, he maintains a high tolerance for agony. Notably, Blackbeard’s physical strength enabled him to halt Whitebeard’s attack using only his own might.

Unique Abilities:

Devil Fruits:

Blackbeard is the only known individual to wield the powers of two Devil Fruits simultaneously. His primary Devil Fruit is the Yami Yami no Mi, granting him control over darkness. This dark energy manifests as fiery black smoke, possessing gravitational properties that can obliterate anything it engulfs. Additionally, the Yami Yami no Mi allows Blackbeard to absorb and nullify the Devil Fruit powers of others upon physical contact.

The Gura Gura no Mi, obtained by killing Whitebeard, grants Blackbeard the ability to create earthquakes and generate powerful shockwaves. Initially lacking full control, he later gains mastery over this devastating power, capable of halting incoming attacks effortlessly.


Blackbeard has honed his Busoshoku Haki, enabling him to harness his spiritual energy to create an invisible armor. This armor provides both offensive and defensive capabilities, strengthening his strikes and protecting him from harm.

Additionally, Blackbeard possesses Kenbunshoku Haki, granting him heightened senses to detect the presence, strength, and emotions of others, granting him a tactical advantage.

Weapon Proficiency:

Blackbeard wields claw weapons, which he used to inflict scars upon Shanks. Additionally, he employs a flintlock pistol in combat, further enhancing his arsenal.


Marshall D. Teach, the cunning captain known as Blackbeard, has risen to power as one of the Four Emperors. His tactical skills, dual Devil Fruits (Yami Yami no Mi and Gura Gura no Mi), and mastery of Haki make him a formidable adversary. With immense physical strength and a strategic mindset, Blackbeard poses a significant threat to anyone who stands in his way.
