ONE PIECE is an amazing world created by Eiichiro Oda, we find many characters with unique powers and abilities, and one of the most intriguing ones is Roronoa Zoro, the swordsman of the Straw Hat Pirates. Have you ever wondered how strong he really is? Let's find out!
Firstly, it's important to note that the world of ONE PIECE is very different from our own. There are no only geographical differences and Devil Fruits separating the powers of a human in this world from those in the real world. There are also those who without special powers are able to release superhuman powers. And in the protagonists' crew who comes closest to this is Roronoa Zoro.
As the first member to join the Mugiwara crew after Captain Monkey D. Luffy, we have seen Zoro in ONE PIECE struggling with heavy physical training. He doesn't just train with swords, but also by working on his body through abs, push-ups, and of course, weightlifting. But how much does Zoro lift during ONE PIECE?
But how much does Zoro actually lift during ONE PIECE? While there are no official answers given by Eiichiro Oda, some fans have tried to come up with some numbers. During the Thriller Bark saga, we see Zoro lifting a barbell with four plates, two on each side, with a radius equal to the height of the swordsman. These plates, which have a radius of 178 centimeters, become 356 centimeters in diameter, which according to some estimates could correspond to 3-6 tons of weight.
Another clue to the swordsman's strength comes from one of his moves with three swords, the Hyakuhachi Pound Ho, which can be translated as "108 Phoenix Passions" or "108-pound Cannon." The double meaning of the Japanese reading naturally focuses on pounds, with one pound equivalent to about 0.45 kilograms. Considering that to fire a 12-pound cannonball, a cannon capable of withstanding a force of over one ton is needed, to use this move, Zoro possesses a force that can express about 9 tons of weight.
Finally, the last theory dates back to the Dressrosa arc, with Zoro's strength being able to cut Pica. According to calculations by some ONE PIECE fans, to cut the enemy, a force of 30 billion Newtons was required, this corresponds to lifting 30 tons of weight. This would make him considerably stronger than a giant like Hajrudin, who was able to lift 10 tons of weight.
These are then the dates in terms of how much Zoro could lift in ONE PIECE so far, although we certainly haven't seen its full power after the time jump. Who knows if the Mangaka Oda will share this information in the SBS of the volumes.
