Gather round, because it's time to celebrate the best female characters in One Piece. Like most shonen anime, many of the important characters in One Piece are male. While this can be a bit alienating for female viewers, it's all the more reason to celebrate the amazing women who make the show what it is.
The character that is your favorite depends on what interests you. Do you like formerly villainous girls who change their ways after falling in love? In that case, Charlotte Pudding might be one of your favorites. Do you like intelligent, strong-hearted women without who the rest of the cast would be literally and figuratively lost? Then Nami is probably going to be your best girl.
Whatever your tastes, there are plenty of amazing One Piece characters to fit the bill.
As a member of the Straw Hat Pirates, Nami is responsible for navigation. Initially, she joined under false pretenses with the intention of robbing them and sharing the bounty with the Arlong Pirates, but she ended up becoming a full-fledged member. Her dream is to create a map that depicts the entire world.
To save her father's life, Viola joined the Donquixote Pirates and served them loyally before ultimately betraying him. She now acts as the crown princess of Dressrosa.
Reiju is the only daughter of the Vinsmoke family. Unlike her brothers, who are cruel and emotionless bullies excepting Sanji, she is actually quite kind and empathetic but hides her true feelings as a way of surviving her remorseless family. She uses poison based powers in battle.
Tashigi is an officer of the Marines who works under Smoker. Though she works for a corrupt organization, she herself is not particularly corrupt - in fact, she'll do anything to defend her own idea of justice. She wants to make sure that Meito, a powerful class of sword, don't fall into the hands of those who would use them for evil.
