Known as the Strongest Man Alive, Whitebeard's name among the pirates of ONE PIECE comes second only to Gol D. Roger, with whom he fought at eye level in his youth. However, the Emperor, whose real name is Edward Newgate, left us some time ago. When Whitebeard dies? Let's relive his final moments.
Whitebeard was born and was on Sphinx Island one of the four Yonkos alongside Shanks, Big Mom and Kaido. Proud and powerful like no other, he regarded each of the men on his crew as a son. Precisely because of this concept of a crew family, he declared war on the world government to try and rescue Portgas D. Ace, who was turned over to the Navy by Blackbeard.
While ONE PIECE Marineford Saga, Whitebeard appears at the gallows, where Ace and his entire crew, as well as numerous allied ships, are executed. While still aboard his ship, he unleashed his Devil Fruit's powers to create two tsunamis, which were stopped by Aokiji. After this little initial skirmish, however, Newgate was betrayed and stabbed upon arrival on the mainland by one of his own men, Squardo. Despite this heinous act, Whitebeard embraces her pirate and forgives him. Before you relive his final moments, here's Whitebeard in BT Studio's ONE PIECE figure.
In Marineford, the Captain of the Whitebeard Pirates faces off against all three Navy Admirals, Akainu, Aokiji, and Kizaru, and demonstrates his true, incredible power. Finally, when there is no hope for Ace, he gets into a fierce battle with Akainu, losing half his face. In the midst of this confrontation, Blackbeard intervenes and orders his men to hit the Yonko with dozens of bullets and pierce them with numerous blades. After the existence of One Piece was revealed, Whitebeard dies standing at Marineford. But even before this final great battle, Newgate's body was covered with wounds from his long experience.
