The first of the Seven Warlords to be formally introduced, his appearance marking their very first mention in fact, Mihawk carries the reputation of the greatest swordsman in the world. Unlike practically every other Pirate and even the other Warlords, he is a loner, sailing the seas in a small boat and never interacting with others unless absolutely necessary. He is said to have had a rivalry with Shanks in the past, and that their duels were truly titanic. It is Zoro's ultimate goal to defeat him and Mihawk, after seeing his warrior spirit, urged Zoro to become stronger and surpass him one day.

Classification: Human, Shichibukai, Strongest Swordsman in the World

Lifting Strength: Class T
Striking Strength: Class EJ

Standard Equipment: The Black Sword, Kokutō Yoru (the strongest sword in the OP world), and his Kogatana, a pendant cross knife worn on his neck
Intelligence: Fairly intelligent and perceptive
Powers and Abilities: Super strength, speed, durability, endurance, agility, dexterity, premium swordsmanship (is the strongest swordsman in the One Piece verse, able to casually slice a large frozen tsunami in two, this tsunami was frozen by Aokiji so it should be noted it is far more durable than your usual frozen object, Mihawk has also shown the ability to slice with ground-breaking precision as shown when he launched a long-ranged slash at Gear 2 Luffy in mid-soru while going around the other people in between), can generate wind blades with sword slashes. Excellent visual prowess. (easily able to track gear 2nd luffy in the middle of a chaotic warground)
Weaknesses: None notable
-Wind Blades: Not a named technique. Mihawk swings his sword and launches a slicing blade ofwind at his opponent. He can use this with pin-point precision (as when he easily tagged a soru-speeding G2 Luffy in the midst of battling marines and pirates with a slash) as well as with overwhelming power, as seen below.
-Kokuto Issen (Black Blade Single Flash): Mihawk swings his blade to launch a wave of compressed air from his sword, which is able to cut everything in his path, making a powerful long-range slice.
-Sekai Ichi no Zangeki (The Strongest Slash of the World): It is an extremely powerful technique, possessing incredible range and power. Using his Kokuto Yoru, Mihawk launches a massive air compressed wave towards his opponent, capable of cutting through massive amounts of ice, and supposedly much more.
-Kokutō Arahoshi (Black Blade Heavy Star): Mihawk jumps, standing on his sword, and descends to impale his opponent
-Ichimaru Gin(Bleach) (Each fighter could likely one-shot the other.)
