One Piece: Roronoa Zoro

One Piece is one of the most famous manga with over 1000+ chapters and a plethora of characters introduced to us. Among all of them, one of the most loved characters is Roronoa Zoro of the monster trio.

Roronoa Zoro is the second member to join Straw Hat Pirates. His goal is to become the strongest swordsman in the world with his signature three-sword style swordsmanship.

During his quest, he has lost many swords in battles and in turn, wielded many. In this article, we will tell you about all the swords he has wielded.

For those who till the end there is a Zoro’s rarest sword he has ever wielded, one that can’t be ever graded!

Major  Swords wielded by Zoro:

1. Dual Katanas

Dual Katanas

Zoro’s first three swords that we get to see in the series are dual katana and Wado Ichimonji.

Dual katanas were forged and given to him by Shimotsuki Kozaburo.

They broke in a battle with Dracule Mihawk (the current strongest swordsman) where he gets completely decimated.

2. Wado Ichimonji


Wado Ichimonji was also forged by Shimotsuki Kozaburo and was in supposed to be inherited by his granddaughter Kuina rival of Zoro.

After Kuina’s untimely death, Zoro took possession of the Wado Ichimmonji from Kuina’s father Koushirou.

Zoro promised to be the greatest swordsman in the world and carry Wado Ichimonji to the end of his journey. Wado Ichimonji is one of the 21 O Wazamono-grade (great grade) swords.

3. Sandai Kitetsu


Zoro came in contact with Sandai Kitestu in an arms merchant shop in Logue Town.

Sandai Kitetsu is a Wazamono-grade and third out of the three Kitetsu swords. It was forged by Kozuki Sukiyaki and is the weakest among the Kitetsu trio.

Due to being a cursed sword and with immense bloodlust and sharpness, it is particularly hard to master. Zoro even called it a problem child due to this!

Every swordsman who wielded this sword died eventually, so Zoro tries to test his luck with this sword.

He tested his luck against the curse by throwing it up in the air and placing his arm in the trajectory. In the end, Zoro won with his luck as the sword smoothly landed without even touching his arm.

He got this sword for free after impressing the arms merchant Ippontmatsu and still carries this sword with him.

4. Yubashiri

Yubashiri is one of the 50 Ryo Wazamono-grade swords. which is a high rank but under O Wazamono-grade swords.

The sword is a family heirloom merchant Ipponmatsu’s family.

He handed the sword to Zoro after proving his luck against Sandai Kitetsu.

Zoro wielded this sword and was disintegrated by Marine Captian Shu holder of Rust-rust fruit during the fight.

Zoro paid tribute to the sword after the event of Thriller Bark which now serves as its resting place.

5. Shusui

Shusui is also one of the 21 O Wazamono-grade swords and was wielded by the legendary Wano swordsman Shimostsuki Ryuma.

Shusui is a black blade probably due to the amount of Haki that has been imbued in it.

After Ryuma’s death, the swords were placed alongside him in his grave.

To create his army of death Geko Moriya then stole Ryuma’s body and his sword.

During the Thriller Bark arc, Zoro received this blade from the zombie Ryuma after incinerating him with Fames from a Blue Dragon.

6. Enma


Enma is another sword from 21 O Wazamono-grade swords and was wielded by Kozuki Oden and then passed down to his daughter Kozuki Hyori.

This was also forged by Shimotsuki Kozaburo. Kozaburo deemed Enam as his masterpiece.

As Shusui was stolen from Ryuma’s grave, Gyukimaru fought Zoro to get Shusui back and was able to steal it. Later Zoro took in exchange Enma from Hyori in exchange for Shusui.

Enma is an extremely powerful but uncontrollable sword. It requires its user to give extreme amounts of Armament haki but in exchange, it delivers insane damage.

It enabled Zoro to do damage to Kaido, the strongest creature in One Piece. There are also other not-so-major swords Zoro has wielded.

Other Swords Zoro Wielded

1. Jonny and Yosaku’s Swords

Key to hand scuff is with CP9 members who are confronting, so he uses his google navigation idea and takes up Sogeking and wields him as his other blade in the fight.

As Sogekings power is unknown this sword cannot be ranked and that’s why we love Zoro.
