! World Government

[[folder:The Five Elder Stars]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/op_gorosei.png

The Five Elder Stars (''Gorousei'' in Japanese) are the leaders of the World Government, which means that they essentially rule the world. They are a group of five elderly men who have power over the Marines (through the Fleet Admiral, who is constantly in contact with them) and the Cipher Pol. They're also the ones who make deals with pirates who want to become part of the Seven Warlords of the Sea.

So far none of them have been named and pretty much any other information about them still remains a mystery despite their significant influence over the story so far.
-----
* AmbiguouslyJewish: One of the members looks a bit like a Rabbi.
* AncientConspiracy: Their actions in regards to Ohara's scholars definitely show that they have something to hide from the general population. There are several other hints throughout the series that support this being the case as well.
* AristocratsAreEvil: Subverted; according to the Dressrosa arc, they are not World Nobles. They're still evil, though.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Implied so far. At least three of them have visible combat scars in their bodies, and they're the guys who rule over the world. One of them also carries a nodachi with him.
* BadassGrandpa: As their collective name implies, they're all elders, and they're implied to be able to kick ass.
* BaldOfEvil: At least two of them.
* BeardOfEvil: At least two of them. Another one sports a BaldOfEvil and a huge mustache.
* TheDividual: They're mostly treated as a group instead of separate individuals, to the point that none of them have been named so far despite being introduced all the way back during Jaya.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Downplayed. They showed some remorse about killing Ohara's scholars, but that was it.
* EvilReactionary: Possibly, given how much they try to suppress knowledge of the "Void Century". This is a time in the world's history that has been deleted from public records; bits and pieces of what happened during this time have popped up as the series has gone on, suggesting that the world used to be an incredibly high-tech society, including hints at the existence of robot armies, space travel, and technological superweapons. Because they try to kill or silence anyone with knowledge of the Void Century (the reason Robin, an AdventurerArchaeologist who can read the Poneglyphs said knowledge is stored upon, had a bounty as early as age eight) it's very possible they or their predecessors were ''[[WrittenByTheWinners successful]]'' Evil reactionaries.
* EvilOldFolks: They certainly have an ominous presence, and some of their decisions so far have been '''very''' questionable such as [[KillThemAll the genocide of an island of scholars who knew too much about the world's history]].
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Two of them have scars on their faces.
* GreaterScopeVillain: Pretty much of the whole series. Being the superiors of the Marines, Cipher Pol and the Seven Warlords of the Sea, they could be considered this every time the Straw Hats face one of those groups. This is most apparent during the Enies Lobby arc, and later Dressrosa arc.
* KnightTemplar: Big time. Pretty much every decision they take is done mostly to keep order in the world.
* TheMan: They're collectively this for the world.
* MinorMajorCharacter: They have not yet been shown to do much, and have not been named, yet they rule over the world.
* MrExposition: Their role so far in present time tends to be as this, with them commenting about recent events that might impact the current situation of the world.
* NecessarilyEvil: At least this is how they view their actions (although it's unknown what exactly they were afraid of the scholars finding). While they ultimately [[KillEmAll give the order to destroy Ohara]], they seem very unhappy that the situation came to that.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The one with the sword looks a lot like Gandhi. One sort of looks like Mikhail Gorbachev.
* NoNameGiven: As stated in TheDividual entry, they're only known by their title of "Five Elder Stars".
* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: They really come off as this sometimes.
* SharpDressedMan: All of them wear pretty simple and sharp business suits, except for the one in the white robe.
* SlaveToPR: In the end, all they really care about is maintaining the image of the World Government as a benevolent force for justice, rather than the corrupt oligarchy that it is. Examples of this include giving Smoker the credit for taking down Crocodile in Alabasta, and [[spoiler:pretending that the Level Six convicts from Impel Down didn't escape]], which is so bad that it causes Sengoku to resign as Fleet Admiral. [[spoiler:Because of this mentality, they're incredibly upset when Fujitora announces that the World Government allowed Doflamingo's reign of terror over Dressrosa]].
* TautologicalTemplar: At least in the anime rendition of the Ohara Buster Call incident, they've convinced themselves that they're "righteous" people, so everything they do, no matter how unpleasant, or the cost, is itself "righteous." The victims of Ohara, and the thousands of women killed for the "crime" of ''possibly'' bearing Gol D. Roger's child would like to object.
* ThreatBackfire: They keep raising the bounties on the Straw Hats because of how much they want them dead. The Straw Hats in general, and Luffy in particular, tend to see it as an accomplishment. Some other pirates also see increasing bounties as a symbol of pride.
* TreacheryCoverUp: Tends to be their default reaction to something potentially embarrassing happening on the Government's watch:
** Crocodile gets exposed trying to overthrow the King of Alabasta and defeated by the Straw Hats, a group of rookie pirates? Say that the highest ranking Marine present was really responsible to save face. Smoker is still pissed off about that.
** Gekko Moriah gets beaten by the aforementioned rookie pirates? Send Bartholomew Kuma to LeaveNoWitnesses. [[spoiler:Then order Doflamingo to kill Moriah for being weak enough to get his ass kicked, and claim that he was killed in the Whitebeard War to maintain the Seven Warlords reputation]].
** [[spoiler:Blackbeard, the guy they chose to replace Crocodile in the Warlords, breaking out dozens of Level Six convicts from Impel Down? Pretend the whole thing never happened and not let the Marines issue bounties to track the escapees.]] Sengoku actually ''resigned'' because of that.
** [[spoiler:Averted in the Dressrosa arc, though that's because they didn't get the chance to institute a cover up. Most fans agree that Doflamingo's ties with the World Nobles would have allowed him to keep his Warlord status, but Fujitora publicly announced what happened to other countries before the Elders even learned about it. At this point the Elders were put in a lose-lose situation: either let Doflamingo walk free and lose what little reputation they had, or allow Doflamingo to be arrested, let the Straw Hats take the credit, and piss off the World Nobles. The Elders ultimately chose the latter.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: A nice way to describe them. They at least tried to maintain the world's BalanceOfPower, but they have extremely questionable means of doing so.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:World Nobles]]

Also known as "Tenryuubito" (Celestial Dragons), they are the residents of the Holy Land of Mariejois and descendants of 19 of the 20 Kings who formed the World Government long ago. They're shown as a group of arrogant aristocratics, abusing their authority and keeping slaves with them. Noticeably, they treat everyone lesser than them with great disdain to extremely inhuman levels. Despite being really weak, no one dares to hit a Noble, as they can summon an admiral to their help. So far all the World Nobles shown have bulbous-like hairstyle, wear bubble helmets in order to not breath the same air as the "lesser people" and their title is "Saint" (or in case of women "Princess").

The main Nobles shown so far are Saint Roswald, Princess Shalulia, Saint Charlos, Saint Jalmack, Saint Miosgard and Donquixote Doflamingo (he's a former one, though).
-----
* AGodAmI: They consider themselves gods by inheriting "the blood of the world's creators", and this trait is shown by living separately from the rest of the world in Mariejois (a place that is literally called "The Holy Land"), covering their heads with either glass helmets or bubbles as to not breathe the air of commoners, and the whole "I can do whatever I want, and pay me proper respect in my presence!"-attitude.
* ArchEnemy: According to Rocinante, it's those who [[spoiler:carry "''The Will of D.''" He said that the D.]] are considered '''"God's Natural Enemy"'''. [[AGodAmI And by "god", they mean themselves]]. Children in Mariejois were told horror stories about [[spoiler: "D.", claiming they'll swallow them up]], and the motto of its elders was that [[spoiler: "D. will cause another storm" whenever one of them gets a highlight for doing something]].
* AristocratsAreEvil: They believe themselves to be gods that are free to murder and torture people for no reason, among many other crimes. At least for the males, they have the unusual title of "saint", which is often used more for members of the church - and these nobles are anything ''but'' saintly.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Averted, they're total losers, but they can summon a far more powerful Admiral to kick your ass.
** [[spoiler:Doflamingo plays this completely straight; he is monstrously strong even by maritime standards, let alone a World Noble. A lot of that might have to do with his life in piracy. While he doesn't quite hold the authority of the World Nobles per se, his blackmailing of them does grant him similar political power]].
* BeardOfEvil: Saint Roswald is bearded and no less evil than the rest of them.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Not exactly physical beauty, but Saint Homing along with his wife [[spoiler:who are Doflamingo's parents]] have rather gentle countenances in contrast to the Celestial Dragon's default smug expression. They're also the nicest Celestial Dragons depicted so far, with Homing even proclaiming that he is a mere human and giving up his status to live a humble life. Unfortunately, his humility was marred with naivete and ignorance on how much the common people ''despise'' the Celestial Dragons. His wife was poised enough to apologise to her children for not being in good health, despite the horrible conditions they were forced into.
* {{BFG}}: Saint Jalmack uses a large bazooka [[spoiler:to sink Sabo's ship]].
* {{Blackmail}}: [[spoiler: Doflamingo found out a secret of theirs said to be so horrible that it would completely upend the World Government. He dangles this in front of them to retain his World Noble privileges despite no longer being an official member. Given what the government and the Nobles in particular have been shown to get away with openly, whatever Doflamingo found out must be really, ''really'' bad]].
* DirtyCoward: They're armed mainly with fire arms and are anything but brave.
* DisproportionateRetribution:
** Crossing their path even unknowingly results in getting a bullet to the gut. [[spoiler: Or in poor Sabo's case, being blown up by a cannon.]]
** Perhaps the strongest deterrent, however, is the fact that they can, and if pressed, ''will'', summon an admiral to take care of their aggressor. It's because of this that no one is willing to cross them. Perhaps the only people in the world that can get away with defying, and maybe even ''killing'', a world noble are the Four Emperors, because not even the admirals stand a chance against one of them.
** You ''know'' it's bad when victims of their cruelty will go after any of them if they had the chance. The reason Luffy was willing to give one of them the shellacking he deserved was because Luffy ''already'' had a high price on his head and knew the Marines were after him anyway. [[{{Irony}} Even if said World Noble has given up his title and probably has done nothing wrong to them]] [[spoiler: as Doflamingo's family found out the hard way.]]
* FatBastard: Saint Charlos and also Saint Miosgard.
* {{Gonk}}: Charlos, Miosgard and Miosgard's father. Saint Roswald and Saint Jalmack are more normal-looking, while Princess Shalulia is more like EvilIsSexy.
* HateSink: Every scene they appear in just makes viewers hate them even more. Besides [[spoiler:Doflamingo's family]], none of them ever showed any redeeming quality. They just keep doing horrible things, confident that their status lets them do whatever they want. They buy and kidnap people to make them slaves, shoot people just for not kneeling before them, make slaves eat Devil Fruits just for their own sick entertainment and much worse. Many characters suffered under them including Fisher Tiger, Hancock and her sisters and Koala, not to mention one of them [[spoiler:(nearly)]] killed Sabo. Eustass Kid, himself a PsychopathicManchild, claims that even the worst pirates are absolutely nothing compared to the World Nobles.
* {{Jerkass}}:
** The BIGGEST EXAMPLE so far in the series. Their KickTheDog moments are treated with absolute horror, anger and disgust, they have no empathy to anyone other than themselves and enforce the slave trade [[spoiler: which Boa Hancock and Fisher Tiger were victims of]]. Some of them are downright fucked up, enough to [[spoiler: feed little girls Devil Fruits for their own twisted pleasure]].
** More examples: They shot kids (''very'' young kids, like ages two and five) just for running past them ''multiple times'', drove a girl to such despair that she went mute and committed suicide not long after leaving their service, [[EyeScream gouged out a guy's eyes]] sorely for entertainment, and have driven countries to starvation thanks to extravagant offerings that kingdoms are forced to give to them.
** From what was shown of them, [[spoiler:Doflamingo's parents]] seem to avert this.
* KarmaHoudini: This is what they believe themselves to be. And unfortunately, for the most part, they are right. However, Luffy gave Charloss such a wake up call after he shot Hatchan. Saint Jalmack did get away with blasting a pirate ship with Sabo inside of it because his ship crossed his path, but he claims it's because Sabo raised a pirate flag.
* KarmaHoudiniWarranty: With so many big changes happening in the world along with Joker's predictions and Kaido's plan to unleash a war that he hopes will consume the world, it's beginning to look like the World Noble's days of sitting in their ivory towers with impunity may be numbered. (Many fans have pointed out how Mjosgard's actions on Fishman Island are similar to how slave owners in post-Civil War America tried to enforce fugitive slave laws, and everyone knows how ''that'' turned out...)
* KickTheDog: They do this often to their slaves. Shalulia tried to shoot Keimi just to take away the Straw Hats' prize; luckily, Rayleigh came along and stopped her.
* KnightTemplar: Saint Jalmack, [[spoiler: who shot Sabo mainly because he had risen a Pirate flag.]]
** Which was a secondary reason, his first is because his boat crossed his path.
* MarkOfShame: Their crest is the Soaring Dragon Hoof, which is branded on the slaves. That means that, as a slave, you're worth less than trash to them. A large number of fishmen [[spoiler: and the Boa sisters]] have it.
* {{Muggle}}: Thus far, none except [[spoiler:Donquixote Doflamingo]] have proven to be physically anything other than a normal human who cannot fight worth squat. Their only real weapons are their money and affiliation with the World Government, which includes the Marines.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Saint Charloss [[spoiler: gets slammed by a ''berserk'' Luffy, Saint Roswald has Usopp falling on his head and Miosgard is almost killed by his former slaves on Fishman Island.]]
* PetTheDog: Whether it's out of their own selfish motivation or whatever (since we never get to see what Queen Otohime said to convince them), them pledging their support for Fishman Island is this.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: As they are descended from the twenty kings who created the World Government, they are not only above all law, they technically can ''make'' them.
* SpoiledBrat: All the world nobles are basically bratty assholes who think they can get whatever they want, or cry/tattle to the Marines when they've been slighted in any way.
* TerrifiedOfGerms: Assuming they truly believe what they claim. They wear breathing apparatuses that look like space suits, simply to protect themselves from the air civilians breathe.
* TokenGoodTeammate: [[spoiler: Doflamingo's parents, who believe they are equal as commoners. Their beliefs bit them in the ass, sadly.]]
* TooDumbToLive: Saint Miosgard thought of going to Fishman Island alone and recover all his escaped fishmen.
* UngratefulBastard: ''Saint Miosgard''. [[spoiler: Otohime [[TakingTheBullet took a literal bullet]] to save him from a furious crowd and he tried to kill her. Later, when he was healed and dismissed he kept insulting them and swore revenge.]]
* UpperClassTwit: To the point where they wear glass helmets in order to avoid breathing the same air as the citizens.
* WhiteSheep: Saint Homing is the nicest Celestial Dragon depicted so far, even going so far as declaring himself as human and forgoing his status as a World Noble to live the life of a simple commoner with his family. [[spoiler:How the hell he spawned ''[[TheSociopath Donquixote]] [[{{Jerkass}} Doflamingo]]'' is beyond comprehension. Even Doflamingo's own brother can't believe that their kind parents spawned someone like him, as Doflamingo is downright despicable, even by World Noble standards.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: Yes they're this bad, that not even kids are spared from their cruelty. [[spoiler: Sabo was nearly blow up by one just for passing his ship (he claimed it was for raising a pirate flag, but was more miffed at former reason). Hancock and her sisters were sold to them as slaves and forced to eat Devil Fruits for their sick entertainment, and Koala was so beaten down by them that she developed a defense mechanism of always smiling so that they would get bored and leave her alone. Even when she escaped, she couldn't turn it off quite yet.]]

[[folder:Commander-in-Chief Kong]]
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kong_2649.png
-> Voiced by: Creator/UnshoIshizuka (JP)

Twenty years ago, at the dawn of the Golden Age of Piracy, Kong was the Fleet Admiral. He's since been promoted. Now the second-most (technically sixth-most, but who's counting) powerful person in the World Government, Kong's authority extends to not just the Marines but the Warlords, espionage agents, Cipher Pols, and Impel Down and Enies Lobby staff as well.
-----
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: While technically speaking we have yet to see him do anything besides sit behind a desk, fans near-unanimously believe he will turn out to be this, based on the fact that he used to be Fleet Admiral, presumably going through Vice Admiral and full Admiral to get there, both of which have asskicking as a job requirement.
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen in silhouette in "Chapter 0," and his existence was hinted at as early as the [[AllThereInTheManual "Yellow" databook]].
* GreaterScopeVillain: Apparently not exactly a "bad" guy, but whenever the Straw Hats face a member of the Government's military, their orders come from him.
* HeroicBuild: One of the bulkier characters seen so far.
* ImprobableHairstyle: A large spike-shaped hairstyle, with a lizard-like spiked beard to go along with it.
* ManiacMonkeys: Well, he's at least ''named'' for the most famous ape in all fiction, and it's a popular [[WildMassGuessing wild mass guess]] that his powerset will have something to do with primates.
* MinorMajorCharacter: So far.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Seems like a nice enough guy, accepting the wishes of [[spoiler: Garp and Sengoku when they resign]] with only a small amount of protest.

Don Krieg's right-hand man. Befriended by Sanji.
-----
* AmbiguouslyBrown: He has both brown skin and thick lips for some reason. His origins are never explained as well.
* BadassNormal: Not having any special ability or Devil Fruit power, yet he's strong enough to lift weighted tonfas and spin them like a helicopter, break through Pearl's armor, and knock out his boss with a single punch and effortlessly lift him.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Sanji gave him food when he was starving to death. He was so grateful, [[PleaseSpareHimMyLiege he begged Krieg to spare him]]; '''just''' him.
* CreepyShadowedUndereyes: They seem to emphasize how dangerous he is.
* TheDragon: He serves as this to Don Krieg.
* DragonInChief: It turns out that he's stronger than Krieg; his intense loyalty to his captain just kept him from realizing it.
* DualTonfas: His WeaponOfChoice
* HeelFaceTurn: After Sanji saved him from starving to death.
* LongBusTrip: He hasn't made another appearance in nearly 20 years.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Even if Krieg attempted to poison him, in the end he still shows his loyalty towards Krieg.

->Dorry Voiced by: Creator/DaisukeGori (JP), Creator/BobCarter (EN, Funi)
->Brogy Voiced by: Creator/TetsuInada (JP), Jonathan C. Osborne (EN, Funi)

Two giants who reside on [[LostWorld Little Garden]] from the land of Elbaf. They have been fighting each other for years, so long in fact they have forgotten what they've been fighting about. It was over who caught the biggest fish.

They each have a bounty of 100,000,000 berries. They jointly hold one record for the oldest known active bounties, as they've both been wanted for over 100 years.
-----
* AnAxeToGrind: Brogy's weapon of choice.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: They're giants, so natch.
* BadassBeard: As befitting of Viking-style warriors, they have long, bushy beard to show.
%%* BadassCape
* BattleAura: They both get one in the anime while using their special attack (see below). Dorry's is blue, Brogy's is red.
* {{BFS}}: Dorry's weapon of choice, [[JustifiedTrope he is a giant after all]].
* BigFun: Brogy, both figuratively and literally.
* ForeverWar: What their duel essentially is. Because both are about equal, they've been fighting for well over a century with no signs of stopping even when their weapons break.
* HonorBeforeReason: The two are willing to fight what amounts to an endless duel for a reason that neither of them can remember. According to them, the reason doesn't matter. This is a matter of HONOR!
* HornyVikings: Their culture is based on the vikings.
* MadeOfIron: Dorry shrugged off an explosion from ''inside his stomach''.
* OurGiantsAreBigger: They're part of the giants from the island of Elbaf.
* {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}s: Elbaf giants are noted to be this, and they're no exception.
* RedOniBlueOni: Dorry blue, Brogy red. It's even their epithets. Subverted though since their personalities are similar.
* SignatureLaugh: They each have a distinctive laugh.
** Dorry: "Gegyagyagyagya!"
** Brogy: "Gebabababababa!"
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Their names have been spelt "Dorey and Brogey" and loads of other variations.
* SwordBeam[=/=]RazorWind: '''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome HAKOKU!!!]]'''
** DangerousForbiddenTechnique: It destroyed their weapons after using it. (Though it's only because their weapons were dulled and half-broken already).
* TearsOfJoy: Brogy, when it looks like he's finally won their decades-long duel. But it quickly turns to horror when he finds out that Dorry was fighting while injured.

->Sandersonia voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito (JP), Creator/LindsaySeidel (EN)
->Marigold voiced by: Kimiko Saito (JP), Julie Mayfield (EN)

Known as Sonia and Mari for short, they're Boa Hancock's little sisters, though "little" [[BigLittleBrother might not be the right word]]. They were slaves of the [[AristocratsAreEvil World Nobles]] and were released by Fisher Tiger; since then they have been living a lie about why their backs cannot be shown, claiming that they have Gorgon eyes on their backs and anyone who sees it turns to stone, when in actuality they have 'The hoof of the Celestial Dragon' on their backs, marking them as property of the World Nobles. They were both force fed two different models of Snake-Snake Fruit (''Hebi Hebi no Mi''), Sonia the Anaconda model and Mari the King Cobra model.
----
* {{Action Girl}}s: They're both very strong warriors.
* {{Animorphism}}: They both ate Devil Fruits that turn them into snakes or half-snakes.
* BarrierWarrior: Sort of, Mari uses Armaments Haki to deflect enemy attacks.
* BigLittleBrother: Despite being Hancock's younger sisters, they are both much, ''much'' bigger than her. And this IS [[StatuesqueStunner Hancock]] we're talking about.
* BladeOnAStick: Mari's weapon of choice.
* BreathWeapon: In her cobra form, Mari can spit venom from her mouth.
* CombatClairvoyance: Sonia's speciality is Observation Haki. With it, she can move her body to dodge ''every single hit'' of Luffy's Gatling attack.
* DoesNotLikeMen: With Luffy and Rayleigh being the only exceptions, much like their sister.
* FieryRedhead: Mari, literally so at one point when she sets herself alight for her Hebigami-Tsuki: Salamander attack.
* FlowerMotifs: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tagetes Their]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandersonia names]], [[MeaningfulName obviously.]]
* GenkiGirl: Sonia, when not in action.
* HeelFaceTurn: Alongside their older sister, when she falls in love with Luffy.
* HeroicBSOD: Sonia breaks down crying and screaming as Hancock explains their past to Luffy. Mari, despite being very shaken herself, has to give her a CooldownHug.
* KiAttacks: They're both proficient users of Haki.
* LovelyAngels: They fight as one against Luffy.
* {{Morality Pet}}s: They're the only ones (before Luffy comes around that is) that Hancock won't act like an asshole towards.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign:
** They're both huge, Mari is fat (though WordOfGod says it's muscle) and Sonia has a disproportionately large head and a snake-like tongue.
** In a subversion, Mari actually looked quite more... normal as [[http://images.wikia.com/onepiece/images/c/cc/GorgonSlaves.jpg a child]] and [[http://images.wikia.com/onepiece/images/e/e1/Boa_Escape.PNG a teenager]]. Sonia, however, was like this from the beginning.
* PunnyName: All their attacks with "hebi" in them can be either taken to be Japanese for snake or a romanization of the English word heavy.
* PrehensileHair: Their Hebigami-Tsuki (Snake Hair Possession) attacks.
* RedOniBlueOni: To each other. Sonia is [[ManChild playful and mischievous]] and Mari [[TheStoic is stern and serious.]]
* SatelliteCharacter: To Hancock. They have very little characterization aside from their devotion to their sister.
* SlaveBrand: Like Hancock, they bear the "Hoof of the Rising Dragon" on their backs, burned onto them as marks of their slavery to the World Nobles.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Sonia's hair is green.

One of the Kuja tribe who happened to find Luffy after he landed in Amazon Lily, along with her friends Sweet Pea and Aphelandra. She forms the closest attachment to Luffy of the three, especially after he saves her in the arena trial. Joined the Kuja Pirates during the TimeSkip.
-----
* ActionGirl: The Kuja are a warrior tribe, so she's definitely this.
* BadassAdorable: She doesn't get to fight onscreen much, but still. Hell, she even became a member of the Kuja Pirates after the timeskip, which most definitely means she's stronger than she looks.
* BareYourMidriff: Pretty much a given for a Kuja clanswoman.
* FeatherBoaConstrictor: Pretty much a standard for all Kuja warriors.
* FurBikini: Her other outfit is a [[AbsoluteCleavage skimpy chinese-like garment.]]
* KiAttacks: She can use Haki to make her [[AnnoyingArrows arrows]] more powerful.
* KnifeNut: She threatens Luffy with a dagger at one point.
* MsFanservice: Just look at how cute she is, and how much skin she reveals!
* RunningGag: She ''really'' wishes to [[InnocentInnuendo have a look at Luffy's "family jewels"]].
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Fans aren't sure whether her name is supposed to be spelled "Marguerite" or "Margaret".

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TS_Perona_2_4274.jpg
->Voiced by: Creator/KumikoNishihara (JP), Creator/FeleciaAngelle (English)

One of the Mysterious Four of Thriller Bark who commands the Zombie Animals and Ambush Zombies of the island ship. Eater of the Hollow-Hollow Fruit (''Horo Horo no Mi'') that allows her to create ghosts as well as sends out a astral projection of herself (at the cost of having to keep her body still). Was defeated by Usopp and later blasted off the island to Gloom Island by Bartholomew Kuma. Zoro soon joins her and they reach a truce in regards to their situation. Later helps guide Zoro back to Sabaody two years later so he can reunite with the rest of the Straw Hats, even keeping the marines at bay so they can escape.
-----
* AnnoyingLaugh: "Horohorohorohoro!"
* AstralProjection: One of her Devil Fruits powers is to separate her own spirit from her body, although this leaves said body vulnerable.
* BadBoss: She constantly tells her extremely loyal bodyguard [[EverythingIsWorseWithBears Kuma]][[OurZombiesAreDifferent cy]] to stop talking because [[VocalDissonance his voice]] isn't cute.
* BigShutUp: To Kumacy whenever he speaks, demanding he remain silent. Unfortunately, this prevents him from letting her know about Brook's first appearance on Thriller Bark and that Usopp, Nami, and Chopper were hiding inside him.
* CornerOfWoe: Another of her powers, Negative Hollow, forces people into one.
* CuteButCacophonic: She's a cute girl, but her voice can get pretty high-pitched and loud.
* CuteGhostGirl: Subverted in that she's not actually a ghost, but is able to control ghosts. [[DoubleSubversion Although]] she can become one via astral projection
* CutenessProximity: Has a great love for cute animals.
* DarkChick: Serves as this among Mysterious Four of Thriller Bark. Her role in the actual governance of the ship was the least defined and she seemed to spend most of her time entertaining herself with her collection of animal zombies. She's also the one that eventually [[HeelFaceTurn turned face]].
* DarkActionGirl[=/=]DarkMagicalGirl: Is a mixture of both, she's assertive and likes to fight (as long as she's not in any physical danger) but she's also incredibly lonely and longs for companionship, part of her FaceTurn was based around finally warming up to Zoro simply due to time and proximity.
* ElegantGothicLolita: Both of her pre- and post-timeskip outfits follow lolita fashion, fitting her ghastly, gothic nature.
* EmotionBomb: The "Negative Hollow" is a "Despair" type.
* GirlishPigtails: Pre-timeskip.
* GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak: Her interests are incredibly girly, but her speech patterns are incredibly masculine.
* GothGirlsKnowMagic: She's lonely and wears gothic lolita, and can use her Devil Fruit powers to create ghosts.
* HeelFaceTurn: Thanks to Kuma, being alone and in need of company she befriends Zoro when he lands there too. And Post time skip, helps the Straw Hats escape.
* HighHeelFaceTurn: The only one of the Mysterious Four to turn a new leaf (not that she had much choice, given the situation in which Kuma threw her).
* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: Her fight with Usopp is equal parts flirting with and throwing explosive ghosts at him.
* MadBomber: She really enjoyed using her explosive Mini-Hollows in her fight with Usopp.
* ManChild: Though she's in her twenties, she acts more like a preteen, being obsessed with cuteness and covering her room with pink. She also loves cute things and wants to rule over a nation of them.
* NiceHat: Post-timeskip.
* NighInvulnerable: Though not a Logia-user, her Devil Fruit allows her to project an [[MadeOfAir intangible ghost]] that she can use her powers through.
* NightmareFetishist: She finds zombie stuffed animals adorable.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: Her eyes are completely round, with only a few eyelashes visible at the bottom, and instead of colored irises like most female characters, she has large black dots that gain concentric circles when she's shocked, essentially an enlarged version of the male iris design.
* OddFriendship: With Zoro and Mihawk, who both couldn't be more different from her; however, it's Justified since she had nobody else to be with for those two years. As a cover story shows, she even chooses to go back with Mihawk for some time after Zoro leaves.
* OhCrap: Has an absolutely EPIC one during her fight with Usopp.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's currently twenty-five years old. This trope is more so in play before the TimeSkip though, where she's 23 but her manner of dress and bratty attitude make it easy to mistake her as a teenager. She's also only 5'2, and therefore one of the shortest humans in the series.
* ParasolOfPrettiness: You can even see it in the picture above.
* PerkyGoth: She's always a goth-esque character, but pre time-skip, her personality is more cheerful and her outfit features a lot of pink.
* RedBaron: "Ghost Princess"
* RegalRinglets: Post time-skip her hair gets curled, making her looking more regal.
* SuperpowerLottery: One of the best Paramecia type Devil Fruits portrayed. Not only does it give her incredible versatility, in that she can create ghosts that few if any people have a defense against (she can directly attack people's emotional states, something that nobody else has proven themselves capable of) and explosive ghosts, but she can do it without ever exposing herself to danger. And who's to say that she couldn't create other types of ghosts?
* SquishyWizard: Though she can do an amazing variety of things with her power, she is unused to being directly attacked and goes down almost immediately when Usopp finally finds her.
* ThrowDownTheBomblet: Perona's "Mini Hollow" attack which creates miniature ghost bombs that explode when she snaps her fingers.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Her Negative Hollows don't work if the target is already exceedingly negative.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She ''hates'' cockroaches (katsaridaphobia), a trait Usopp capitalized on during his fight against her.
* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: Averts this by being really clever with her Devil Fruit, she has zero shame about spamming and sniping people with her Negative Hollows. And even when Usopp proves himself immune she retreats to a place of safety and uses her projected ghost to attack him from complete safety. If it wasn't for her immaturity and lack of an experience in dealing with people immune to her abilities she would've won.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Her hair is pink.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Pre time-skip, with striped stockings. Grade A.

One of the pirate captains allied with Whitebeard, he comes to Marineford with his crew to save Ace. However after he finds out that Ace is the son of Gold Roger, the man who massacred his old crew, and after some manipulation from Akainu he turns on Whitebeard and stabs him, calling him out on selling his allies. Whitebeard, however, proves him wrong and forgives him. After the war, his whereabouts are unknown.
