*** Let's see who we have in the original seven: Dracule "Hawk-Eye" Mihawk, the world's greatest swordsman, one of the few characters in the entire story that has remained completely unscathed in any battle that he appears in. Crocodile, a master tactician empowered by the [[NighInvulnerability Logia-type]] Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit). Gekko Moria, who commanded an army of zombies and was capable of going toe to toe with Kaido of the Four Emperors in his prime. Bartholomew Kuma, an insanely powerful cyborg who was renowned for his legendary cruelty while he was a pirate. Donquixote Doflamingo, involved in practically anything shady and wicked in the world and empowered with the Ito Ito no Mi (String-String Fruit), and superhuman besides. Boa Hancock, the strongest ActionGirl in the world, capable of petrifying her opponents and, like Mihawk, has yet to be injured in the present story. And last but not least, Jinbe, insanely powerful fishman with the power to command whale sharks and [[MakingASplash water]], and masterful in martial arts besides.

** Out of all of the current members of the Four Emperors, the one that stands out the most as this trope is the one who took the longest to make an official appearance: Kaido. It's stated that he was responsible for massacring Gekko Moria's original crew, which is implied to have been composed of One-Man Armies, and he managed to scare the hell out of [[spoiler:''Donquixote Doflamingo'']], to the point that when forced to face his wrath or the wrath of the aforementioned admirals, he chose the admirals. When you make ''them'' look like the ''friendlier'' option, you are this trope UpToEleven, [[spoiler:never mind that Doflamingo [[TakeAThirdOption Took a Third Option]] to not have to face either of them.]]

** Luffy's father, Dragon. He hasn't done much of anything in the series proper yet, and he's still known as the "World's Most Wanted Criminal", which is fully justified due to him attempting to take down the World Government. He's considered a threat equal to ''Whitebeard'' [[spoiler:when Whitebeard was still alive]], perhaps even ''more'' of a threat due to the fact that he's far more active.

** First we have the protagonist, Ken Kaneki, who goes from a [[ShrinkingViolet shy]], NiceGuy bookworm to a ruthless [[AntiHero anti-hero]] who terrifies even Tokyo's most hardened fighters after he is turned into a artificially created half-ghoul and then [[ColdBloodedTorture repeatedly (and brutally) tortured]] [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil until his mind snaps like a brittle twig.]] When he is using his Kakuja kagune ([[CannibalismSuperpower which he got from cannibalizing other ghouls]]), he is rated as an SS level ghoul by [[TheHunter the CCG]], and is noted by veteran Special Class Investigator Shinohara to be [[TheMentallyDisturbed the most unstable ghoul he's ever encountered.]] In the sequel, Tokyo Ghoul: Re, [[spoiler: he has become a CCG investigator himself under the name 'Haise Sasaki' and becomes known as the ''[[RedBaron Black Reaper,]]'' and one of the most feared investigators in the series, and becomes the first investigator since Arima to deal the One-Eyed Owl a decisive defeat.]]
** [[HeroKiller The One-Eyed Owl]] is a legendary figure in Tokyo, known to be the most dangerous ghoul the CCG has ever seen with a reputation for having brutally killed most every investigator who ever encountered it. As far the CCG is concerned, it simply appeared one day and managed to kill off an a horrifying number of investigators before being driven off, even cutting down the CCG's best combatants with ease. [[LightningBruiser Fast, strong,]] [[ItCanThink and deceptively intelligent]], [[HeroicSacrifice it required someone to die holding it off just so the other investigators could get away]] simply because its speed made it impossible to escape. The slightest possibility of it'\s return is enough to have the CCG lock down the Twentieth Ward and call in ''everything it has'' to face it.

*** Zoro had to hunt pirates to get the bounty to pay for food which caused him to be well-known long before his captain. Because of this before Luffy and the crew itself becomes well-known characters often commend that it's weird for someone of his fame to be following someone like Luffy (truth is he never wanted to join, luffy blackmailed him).
