As far as the top ten is concerned, Ace came at the bottom with his place as tenth. Carrot jumped ahead of the pirate by taking ninth place, and fans of the bunny are thriving in light of this victory. The same goes for fans of Hancock as the former Warlord of the Seas hit up seventh place.
When it comes to sixth place, Nico Robin nabbed the spot while Trafalgar Law hit up fifth. Sanji cooked up enough votes to land in spot four before the big three wrapped up the poll. Nami came in third with Zoro in second, and Luffy took home the whole prize by nabbing first place.
This popularity poll was done worldwide, so it seems fans have spoken at last about their favorites. Zoro might be a popular second to the series, but Luffy is by far the most popular person in One Piece. Oda is no doubt thrilled by this outcome since he is Luffy's biggest champion.
