How was Xebec defeated?

Over 40 years ago, Xebec founded the Rocks pirates on the island named Hachinosu and gathered the most powerful crew members in the history of One Piece.

Soon after that, he became known as the most formidable pirate who demonstrated his powers by dominating different places and pirate crews until Gol D. Roger became the King of the Pirates.

His crew members were so powerful that all the surviving members either became the disastrous character who escaped from the Impel Down or the Emperors of the Sea.

Xebec and his crew members were so powerful that they were considered the biggest threat to the world because of their overwhelming powers and abilities. They weren’t scared of anything and would cause destruction everywhere they wished.

38 years ago now, Xebec led his crew on a task that was the biggest threat to the World Noble and their slaves. They declared the greatest war ninth history of One Piece.

In the God Valley, Rocks D. Xebec and his crew members clashed against the King of the Pirates and a marine combatant, Monkey D. Garp. The battle was known as the God Valley incident, in which all of the Rocks pirates tasted their defeat.

This incident led to the disbandment of the crew as their Captain lost his life during the battle. Soon after that event, the remaining crew members became the Emperors of the sea who started to reign over the particular territory of Grand Line.

The legacy of Xebec has already been extinct considerably over the last few decades since he faced his grave, and numerous younger or newly recruited marines don’t know about him and his dominance 38 years ago.

According to the former Fleet Admiral of the navy Sengoku, his terrors and actions aren’t exhibited because of the involvement of the World Government, as his fate resulted in his trial in forbidden subjects.

He is regarded as the first and most daunting opponent that the King of the Pirates faced, even more than the world’s strongest man, Whitebeard. This is fortified by the truth that among the fewest in the series, Xebec could match the powers of Kaido.


Although he was insanely powerful and had the most powerful crew in the history of One Piece, he wasn’t respected by his own crew members who later got renowned as formidable pirates, such as Shiki the Lion, the strongest man in the world, strongest creature alive and the Queen of Totto land.

We know that all of these infamous pirates don’t like to follow the orders of any other person, and this hints to us that he was strong enough to make them work on his orders.

Former member of the Rocks Pirates, Charlotte Lilin stated him as dishonest and “good for nothing,” someone who ridiculed her. He also had prominence as one of the fewest who injured the strongest create alive.

His tremendous powers and skills led him to cause life-threatening or destructive activities, so he was unquestionably powerful and skilled. We can surely assume that he was a pirate worth several billion.
