In the world of One Piece, the World Government issues monetary rewards to encourage the capture or elimination of dangerous individuals (especially pirates). These rewards are called Bounties. An individual with higher bounty is considered more notorious and dangerous.
Engaging in criminal or illegal activities such as piracy, attacking civilians, smuggling or causing chaos in the world contributes to the issuance of bounties. Characters with powerful combat skills, Devil Fruit abilities or exceptional strength are likely to receive higher bounties as they pose a greater threat to the established order.
Challenging the World Government, refusing to abide by their rules, or openly opposing their ideologies can result in the issuance of a bounty. Characters who know valuable information, particularly secrets that the World Government wants to keep hidden, may receive higher bounties to prevent the dissemination of that information.
