One Piece Pre-Timeskip Admirals
One Piece has Three Great Powers that maintain the balance in the world: the Yonko, the Marines, and the Shichibukai. In this guide, we'll discuss the Marine Admirals, the strongest force in the Marines besides the Fleet Admiral himself.

Pre-Time Skip Admirals

Before the 2-year time skip in One Piece, Sengoku is the Fleet Admiral, and the following characters are the three Admirals.

Sakazuki (Codename: Akainu)

One Piece Sakazuki Akainu
Sakazuki is an Admiral who follows the path of Absolute Justice. He believes that all evil as well as the possibility of evil needs to be eradicated. For example, when he was a Vice Admiral and was sent to Ohara in response to a Buster Call, he ordered his subordinates to destroy the escapees' ship, which only held normal citizens of Ohara and not scholars. Sakazuki's reasoning was that the Marines must eliminate all possibilities of injustice and be thorough with their job. He's portrayed as a ruthless person and uses all means to complete his missions. Sakazuki ate the Magma-Magma Devil Fruit, which is a Logia-type, and can create magma from his body.

Borsalino (Codename: Kizaru)

One Piece Borsalino Kizaru
Borsalino is a laid-back Admiral who can sometimes be sarcastic. He ate the Glint-Glint Devil Fruit, which made him into a Light man. He is a Logia-type user. Borsalino was the Admiral who came to Sabaody to arrest the Straw Hats and other Supernovas on the island after Luffy punched a Celestial Dragon. Borsalino's path of justice is Unclear Justice.

Kuzan (Codename: Aokiji)

One Piece Kuzan Aokiji
Kuzan is a Marine Admiral who ate the Ice-Ice Devil Fruit, making him another Logia-type in this Trio. He represents Lazy Justice. Back when Kuzan was a Vice Admiral, he helped Nico Robin escape Ohara's tragic end after the Buster Call attack despite being a Marine and ordered to eliminate all Ohara scholars. This adds to Kuzan's mysterious, complex character. Sengoku recommended Kuzan to be the next Fleet Admiral because he was popular with his subordinates. Kuzan is an easygoing, lazy character, sometimes goofy. After losing the battle against Sakazuki, he's no longer in the Marines.

Post-Time Skip Admirals

After the 2-year time skip, much has changed in the world, including the Marine Admirals. Sengoku resigns from his Fleet Admiral position, and Sakazuki and Kuzan are elected candidates to take the Fleet Admiral status. However, Kuzan didn't want to become Sakazuki's subordinate because he didn't agree with Sakazuki's way of justice. They both battled for 10 days on Punk Hazard, and Sakazuki was the victor and became Fleet Admiral after the Marineford War. Borsalino is still an Admiral, and there are two new Admirals. One of the new Admirals has already been revealed in One Piece during the Dressrosa Arc, and he's listed right here!

Issho (Codename: Fujitora)

One Piece Issho Fujitora
Issho is a new Marine Admiral who first appeared in the Dressrosa Arc. He was ordered by Sakazuki to capture Luffy and Law in Dressrosa, and he becomes one of the main adversaries in this arc. He's a blind swordsman who seems to have the ability to manipulate gravity; however, he has not been confirmed to be a Devil Fruit user (yet!). He's a calm man and claims to be clumsy, even though his swordsmanship is flawless.
