|Death Battle Combatant|
The Feared Swordsman of the Straw Hat Pirates
|Appearance(s)||Zoro VS Erza|
|“||Over the 9 mountains and 8 seas... Throughout the world itself... There is nothing I cannot cut!!!||„|
|~ Roronoa Zoro|
Roronoa Zoro trained as a swordsman at a very young age at the Shimotsuki Village dojo, where he gained experience in the way of the sword. When his childhood friend Kuina died, he honored her legacy by inheriting her sword, and created his signature "Santoryu" which had him use three swords at once.
He went of to find Dracule "Hawk-Eye" Mihawk, the best swordsman in the world so he could take the title from him, but was captured by a Marine Corp after saving a little girl from the Captain's son's dog. He would eventually meet Monkey D. Luffy, and after rescuing him, agreed to a part of Luffy's crew as Luffy's first mate.
