The Worst Generation (最悪の世代, Saiaku no Sedai) is a term that refers to the eleven top rookie pirates, with bounties over 100,000,000 berries who arrived in the Sabaody Archipelago before the Whitebeard War (whom are denoted as the Eleven Supernovas (11人の超新星, Jūichinin no Chōshinsei), along with the Emperor, Blackbeard. They are known as such, since most of the major conflicts that have occurred after the Battle of Navyford seem to revolve around them. As is the case, they are regarded as 'problem children' who appeared between the end of the Golden Age of Pirates and the beginning of the New Age.
With the exception of the Straw Hat Pirates, most Supernovas attempted to avoid the paths of the World Nobles. Coincidentally, all the Supernovas arrived on the Sabaody Archipelago at the same time which caused a series of issues for the Navy. In addition, all of them, except for the Straw Hat Pirates and the Heart Pirates, entered the New World almost simultaneously. Teech and his crew, on the other hand, were already in the New World by the time the rookies were making preparations.
Of the twelve, all, but two (Zolo Roronoa and Killer), are Cursed Fruit users, as well as captains of their respective crews. According to Shakuyaku, one of the Supernovas could potentially be responsible for inspiring a whole new generation of pirates, a comment that is made true when it was revealed that Luffy inspired Bartolomeo to become a pirate.
