With Episode 958 of One Piece, we’ve heard a lot more about the legendary pirate crew “Rocks Pirates!” than we know. So, who are these Rocks Pirates in One Piece, and why are they known as a legendary crew, to begin with!

Like The King of the PiratesGol D. Roger, and his crew, Rocks Pirates were the strongest even before the rise of “Roger Pirates.” After 38 years of undefeated conquering through the seas, they finally disbanded because of different ideals.

Rocks Pirates in One Piece!

Rocks Pirates was formed by a band of pirates at Hachinosu Island, and they were dangerous to the point where they would even fight to the death on board.

Even the world government had to cover up their achievements to claim themselves as the world’s strongest military power. Eventually, Monkey D. Garp and Gol D. Roger joined together to defeat them at God Valley, which can’t be found even on the map.

Now, let’s look at the Rocks Pirates crew, and you’ll immediately know why it is a legendary pirate crew!

Captain John was one of the legendary pirates from “Rocks Pirates,” and he was also famous for collecting various treasures all over the world.

Silver Axe was an incredible, formidable pirate, and we’ve also seen Sengoku mention it in Episode 958. Even after the Rocks Pirates split up, he made a name for himself.

  • Who defeated Rocks Pirates?

    38 Years Ago, Monkey D. Garp and Gol D. Roger teamed up to defeat the God Valley. Indeed, they succeeded in doing so!

  • Is Rocks D.Xebec still alive?

    Officially, Yes! But in my opinion, he probably is still alive because, after all these chapters, Oda suddenly introduced his character. I don’t think he’d do that if it is just for a backstory.
