I'm quite interested in Zoro's personality, especially when he boasts to others about his powers. Can someone list out all or some of Zoro's lines so far in the manga?

I can only remember two:

  1. In Dressrosa arc:

    During his fight with Pica, he said "Only if your Haki is stronger than mine".

  2. In Punk Hazard arc:

    When he and Tashigi are fighting with Monet, I can't remember exactly.

I don't have an exhaustive list of Zoro's quotes, so until someone comes up with such a list, I'll give you the ones I could find googling this problem. Keep in mind that these are translations and he might have said it differently in Japanese. Have fun reading.

His most recent one liner on Dressrosa is:

Over the 9 mountains and 8 seas... Throughout the world itself... There is nothing I cannot cut.

The quote you were looking for when fighting Monet is:

You've underestimated me, snow woman. When you thought you couldn't beat me, you should have run. Of course, there are things that I don't wanna cut. But... let me ask you something. Have you ever seen a fierce animal you were sure would never bite? Because I haven't.

You can find 29 quotes on less-real. They don't say when he said them though.

  • I don't know. I'm not sure why myself. But if I were to take even one step back, I believe that all those important oaths, promises and many other deals 'til now, will all go to waste and I'll never be able to return before you, ever again.

There is also wikiquote, which has a compilation of quotes, phrases, dialogues from One Piece. You could search for Zoro in the page for more dialogue from him, but I'll stick to his single quotes here.

  • I will... I will never... LOSE AGAIN! Until I defeat him [Mihawk] and become the world's greatest swordsman, I'll never be defeated by anyone!
  • This is the burden of a captain, you can't doubt yourself. In times like these if you lose your confidence, then who can we have faith in?
  • When the world shoves you around, you've just gotta stand up and shove back. It isn't like you can do anything just by giving excuses. If I die, then I am just a man who can only make it this far.
  • I'll get strong, stronger than she[Kuina] ever was, you hear me! Strong enough that my name reaches up to the heavens! I am going to be the world's greatest swordsman. I promised her... I promised.. I did...

I tried to weed out the doubles, but forgive me if I put the same quote more than once.
