[[folder:Gold Roger "The Pirate King"]]
-->"You want my treasure? You can have it! I left everything I gathered together in one place. Now you'll just have to find it!"

->Young Voice: Creator/TakeshiKusao (JP)
->Older Voice: Creator/ChikaoOhtsuka (JP), DavidBrimmer (EN, 4Kids), SeanHennigan (EN, Funi)

"Gold" Roger, real name [[spoiler:Gol D. Roger]], is the great legendary pirate that started the Great Age of Pirates on his execution scaffold twenty-two years ago. His legendary treasure, One Piece, is sought after by pirates the world over, and the one who reaches the hidden island Raftel at the end of the Grand Line and finds it will inherit his title of Pirate King. [[spoiler:He just happens to be Ace's dad.]]
* AccidentalMisnaming: In a flashback, he complains to Whitebeard about the Government calling him "Gold" Roger instead of his correct name.
** May possibly be MaliciousMisnaming since the Marines were already aware of what kind of impact the D people have, even if they don't know what the D means, and he's called "Gold" so that he won't be referred to as a D person. People who personally knows him know better, though.
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Several stories around him are about how he was a great man, but just as many claim that he was evil. The legitimacy of ''both'' interpretations is tenuous at best.
** According to Vice Admiral Garp, Roger was a short-tempered, violent, and selfish man when angry. His actions were pure and straight, like a child's, but completely merciless to an enemy.
* {{Badass}}: To ShroudedInMyth proportions, but considering that he was not only the “Pirate King” but was rivals with Whitebeard and Garp, completely annihilated Lion Shiki, every member of the crew seems to be undeniably {{Badass}} (except Buggy) and as the Captain it's implied that he was the strongest member of his crew… Yeah, {{Badass}} all the way.
** BadassMustache: While not as epic as Whitebeard's, Roger has some impressive hair.
** BadassNormal: Undeniably, one of the key aspects to his legendary status- this was a man who was ''just that good.'' One who led an entire crew who genuinely believed that Devil Fruits' instant SuperDrowningSkills tradeoff for ridiculous physics breaking powers as '''not''' worth it (compare and contrast Buggy- one of his former subordinates, and Silvers Rayleigh - his first mate). For someone to be '''WHITEBEARD'S''' one true rival and be completely unaided says leagues.
* BerserkButton: Was known to beat up anyone who spoke ill of his crew.
* BookDumb: Double subverted. [[spoiler:Skypiea arc hinted that Roger had Ohara-level knowledge of ancient inscriptions]] until his first mate admitted that the crew lacked the intelligence to fully understand and interpret [[spoiler:what the Poneglyph actually meant. The only answer we have had up until now is that Roger was able to read them through an undefined ability to hear "the voice of all things".]]
* CheshireCatGrin
* [[spoiler:DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: Roger kept away from Rouge in his last days for several reasons. The major one is that he's Gold Roger, and any kid he had would've been killed immediately once the World Government found out about his existence. The other one was that he was dying anyway and chances are wouldn't have been around for Ace's birth -- and once the government found out his location, he wouldn't have been around to protect Rouge and Ace as well. Ironically, Ace still resents him, but not because he died -- it's because of all the grief his heritage caused him in life, to the point that he questioned his own existence.]]
* DoNotGoGentle / DyingMomentOfAwesome: The World Government intended for his execution to be a warning to all pirates. However, Roger turned it into the moment that would start the Golden Age of Piracy. [[spoiler:And as Rayleigh revealed, this is what he intended to do all along]].
* FireForgedFriends: Specifically [[InvokedTrope invokes]] this with [[spoiler:Garp, reasoning that they are as good as friends given how long they've known each other, and on this principle trusts Garp to protect his newborn son from the Marines. Despite Garp's initial disbelief, ''it works'']].
* GenerationXerox: An odd example. Flashbacks show that in his younger days, [[spoiler:[[http://images.wikia.com/onepiece/images/6/6a/Roger_in_his_youth.png Roger really did look almost exactly like Luffy]]]]. Despite that, there are no indications that he and [[spoiler:Luffy]] are blood-related in any way ('D' initial aside, of course).
** [[spoiler:Ace, despite all the bitterness and resentment he had for his sire, ironically enough inherited many of his personality traits, including his inability to back down from a fight, [[KilledOffForReal unfortunately.]]]]
* [[spoiler: GunAndSword: Seen wielding both in Chapter Zero]].
* HiddenEyes: It wasn't until Sabaody Archipelago, over five hundred chapters into the story, that his eyes were shown to the reader.
* [[spoiler:IHaveNoSon: Inverted. Ace disavows ''him'', and makes it emphatic that in his eyes, Whitebeard is his true father.]]
* LongDeadBadass: Twenty-two years dead by series start.
* [[spoiler:LukeIAmYourFather]]: [[spoiler:Not Luffy's, but ''Ace's'']].
* MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning: ''"I won't die... partner."''
* OffstageVillainy: Though he is largely a flashback character and thus we haven't seen much of him at all, every flashback always seems to present him positively. By contrast, pretty much every villainous act he's done (slaughtering Squad's crew, for example) is always presented via word of mouth of his victims.
* PlotTriggeringDeath
* PosthumousCharacter: Being dead, all insights on his character are done through either second-hand information or flashbacks.
* SecretLegacy / EternalHero: The mysterious Will of D. that a number of characters possess. Apparently, he actually knew what it meant.
* [[spoiler:SinsOfOurFathers: He was perfectly aware of how the World Government would react to Ace's existence, and since he was dying, he had no choice but to stay away and ask Garp to care for Ace in his stead. His reasoning even rejects the notion of this, stating that "an unborn child bears no sin."]]
* ThanatosGambit: His last words about the location of his treasure sparked the Great Age of Pirates.
* WhereItAllBegan[=/=]BookEnds: He was born and executed in his hometown of Loguetown. Fittingly, it's for this very reason that Loguetown is known as "The Town of the Beginning and the End."
* WorldsStrongestMan: At least shared this title with Whitebeard when he lived. Whether he was truly a little stronger than Whitebeard is unclear. He was the only one of the two to reach the end of the Grand Line and be called Pirate King, but it's implied Whitebeard could have done the same if he wanted to.

->Voiced by: Creator/MachikoToyoshima (JP), PriscillaEverett (EN, 4Kids), Creator/MonicaRial (EN, Funi)

Zoro's childhood rival and the daughter of the Dojo owner Sojiro. She defeated Zoro about 2000 times, but believed she would eventually plateau due to being a girl. She's challenged by Zoro to become the best swordmaster in the world, but dies in an accident later.
* ACupAngst: Inverted. The fact she was developing breasts, period, was the source of angst because they reminded her that she was becoming a woman. Very uncomfortable real world associations with young girls having fear/poor self esteem/self hate for how their bodies naturally develop ensues.
* [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant Swordswoman]]: Tougher than even most of the adults in her dojo, and not at all afraid to flaunt it.
* CoolSword: Her katana Wado Ichimonji. Zoro took it up after her death, and went on to develop his signature "three-sword" style with it.
* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped A Bridge on Her]]: [[DeathByFallingOver She dies offscreen after falling]] [[StaircaseTumble down a flight of stairs.]]
** Then again, she was carrying an unsheathed katana when she slipped...
* IdenticalStranger: To Tashigi.
* ImplausibleFencingPowers: She's even more skilled than young Zoro (who, in return, was far stronger than all the adults).
* {{Irony}}: Despite 4Kids notorious habit of editing anime to make it "kid friendly", in the 4Kids dub, she was injured by the friends of a man she defeated, as opposed to her death of falling. This makes it less of an accident, and more resembling a ''mafia hit''.
* KilledOffForReal
* LittleMissBadass / BadassAdorable: She was stronger than most of the adults in her dojo, and managed to defeat Zoro 2001 times. He wasn't nearly as strong as he is now, but it's still pretty impressive.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Especially in ''Grand Adventure'', where she becomes a playable character.
* PosthumousCharacter
* StayInTheKitchen: This was about to be invoked on her by her father. After she dies, he recognizes it was a huge mistake.
* TheRival: To young Zoro.
* UnkemptBeauty : Very pretty despite having short hair and boyish clothes. Even one of Zoro's classmates notices how cute she is.

->Voiced by: Creator/NorikoHidaka (JP), Creator/VeronicaTaylor (EN, 4Kids), CynthiaCranz (EN, Funi)

Nami and Nojiko's adoptive mother and a former Marine, she was a strong-willed lady that lived at Cocoyashi village with her adoptive daughters. She was killed by Arlong after deciding to use her money to save her daughters instead.
* {{Badass}} ActionMom: Indeed. Especially when she attacked Arlong by shoving a rifle into his mouth.
** While in the 4Kids edit she used only a shovel, it is still impressive to threaten '''Arlong'''.
** Not to mention: It is implied that she was a Captain during her time as a Marine. Considering that she was only twenty years old when she left the Marines, this would be pretty impressive if it turned out to be true.
* BadassLongcoat: She wore one when she was a Marine, which implies she was a Captain or another high-ranking officer.
* {{Bowdlerised}}: Her fate in the 4Kids version, where she's imprisoned in a dungeon.
** Apparently 4Kids overlooked the fact that this means she had to have ''starved to death in the dungeon''.
* CallToAgriculture: From a strong marine soldier to a modest tangerine farmer.
* DeathByDespair: Barely averted in her backstory. She had fought in a terrible battle that destroyed a city, ended up severely injured and was just waiting for her almost sure demise... then she saw little Nojiko carrying baby Nami in her arms and regained the will to live, taking the little girls in.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Shot in the head point blank by Arlong. In the anime, this is toned down by having her shot in the chest.
* FieryRedhead
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: One of the many good characters seen with a cigarette.
* GoOutWithASmile
* ImprobableHairstyle / DelinquentHair: "Girl Power". And cool too.
* {{Irony}}: Much like Kuina, 4Kids' attempt to censor her death backfired with a passion: instead of being shot point blank, she is sent to a dungeon. This means she had to have ''starved to death'', a much more painful and slower end than just being shot through the heart.
* MamaBear: Towards Nami and Nojiko.
* MeaningfulName: Her name is French for stepmother. Literally, it translates to beautiful mother. Both definitions describe her well.
* PosthumousCharacter: Mostly. [[spoiler: Her spirit appears to help send Nami off from Cocoyashi Village without any regrets when she wants to become a pirate but still feels guilty about leaving her hometown behind for the long term, including the beloved memories of her adoptive mother. Bell-Mère encourages her to get going already by giving her a pat on the back, pushing out the door with gusto.]]
* RetiredBadass: Was in the Marines for a bit, but retired early to raise Nami and Nojiko.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Bellemere? Belle-Mère? Bell-Mère?
* {{Tsundere}}: A Type A through and through- Now we know where Nami got it.

[[folder:Dr. Hiriluk]]

->Voiced by: Shigeru Ushiyama (JP), Frank Guida (EN, 4Kids), Mark Stoddard (EN, Funi)

A quack doctor from Drum island and a former rogue. He became Chopper's mentor. His goal was to "heal" his country by attempting to cause a cherry tree blossom on his winter island. He has few days left, and Chopper attempts to cure him with a poisonous mushroom. He's tricked by [[FatBastard King Wapol]] into a trap, but he blows himself up after giving a last, touching speech that sparked an eventual revolution within the country. Later Kureha uses his invention [[spoiler: a red colored powder that turns the snow pink, like cherry petals]] to "heal" the island.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Or in this case, better to kill yourself with an explosive concoction than die from the poison mushroom you ate because your young friend went through hell to get it or from your tyrant of a king.
* ComicallyIneptHealing: Dr. Hirluk is a well intentioned quack who tries to heal people with frog livers.
* CoolOldGuy: In spades.
* DeadlyDoctor: He seriously thought that frog essence and lizard eyes could be excellent cures for his patients.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Undeniably. After giving one of the most heartwarming speeches of all times, he drank an explosive potion so that he won't die because of Chopper's poisonous Mushroom.
* FullFrontalAssault: In order to prove his good intention to an hostile Chopper.
* GoOutWithASmile
* ImprobableHairstyle: It's shaped like a medical cross.
* MadScientist: A little, and good-natured.
* [[YourDaysAreNumbered My Days Are Numbered]]: Suffers from a critical illness.
* NiceHat: Which he later gives to Chopper.
* PosthumousCharacter
* ReformedCriminal: He used to be a master thief until he got ill and was cured by viewing cherry blossoms.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Kureha

[[folder:Montblanc Noland]]
-> Voiced by: HochuOtsuka (JP), Daniel Penz (EN, Funi)

A explorer who discovered the Shandian homeland and became friends with them. His history with the tribe has had a positive influence on their way of life. [[spoiler: Sadly killed when he told his king about their civilization (mostly the city of gold). But when Noland went to show him in person, the island was blasted up to Skypiea by then. The king presumed he was lied to and had Noland executed, with Noland never knowing what happened to his native friends. To add insult to injury, the king fabricated a fairy tale about what a liar Noland was, making him look like a fool in the process. This would have great impact on Noland's entire family line.]]
* AFatherToHisMen: [[spoiler: Tragically his real crew wasn't allowed in the Square where he was executed]].
* {{Badass}}: Along with the below, we learn he's [[spoiler:also been to the New World]], and did so at a time the Grand Line was apparently considered even more dangerous and treacherous than it is now.
** BadassBookworm: Not only smart but hella strong. [[AwesomeMoments He beheaded a giant snake, for crying out loud]].
** CulturedBadass
* CassandraTruth: Played to absolute tearjerking levels - during life, people found his tales hard to beleive, and for 400 years after his death, nobody has believed a thing he's ever said, even though most of his stories and explanations usually have factual basis or were genuine adventures he had.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He ''lifted a'' '''Bleeping''' ''Rockslide'' which was blocking his legs. ''With ONE HAND!''.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: We first learn about him through a children's story, which paints him as a weak, foolish liar. When he appears in an actual flashback, the first thing he does is solve his ship's lack of food by [[{{Badass}} killing a sea king.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The manga introduces him telling a story about a Kingdom of Lilliputans to some children. Fast forward to chapter 713, [[spoiler: it turns out Noland is considered a legendary hero by the Dwarf Kingdom underneath Green Bit, which he defended BY HIMSELF from its enemies. It's also where he got the pumpkins he would later introduce to Shandia.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartner: After he and Calgara stopping trying to kill each other, they were the best of friends.
* HonorBeforeReason: Chooses to leave the Shandian's treasures behind after they come to hate his crew. That left him with no proof that the Golden City existed.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: As if he wasn't {{Badass}} enough.
* MadeOfIron: He has some incredible lungs, as he dived underwater in the Grand Line and stayed underwater for about half an hour before emerging... with a gutted giant monster to serve as dinner for the crew.
* NiceGuy
* NiceHat: Wears a large chestnut on his head.
* OddFriendship: Strikes one with Calgara
* PosthumousCharacter
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Calgara's red.

A huge long-horned Cowfish fishman and a legendary shipwright from Water Seven. He adopted Iceburg and Cutty Flam/Franky. He built Gold Roger's ship, the Oro Jackson and for thus he was sentenced to Impel Down.

The head archeologist of Ohara, the home island of Nico Robin. He and his team were the closest thing to a real family Robin had on the island. [[spoiler: However his team were studying The Blank Century, an act taboo by the World Government. The Marines managed to find out about this from the capture of Nico Oliva and from track it back to Ohara. Oliva manages to get back to the island and warn Clover.

[[folder:Jaguar D. Saul]]
->Voiced by: Creator/TakeshiKusao (JP), Mark Stoddard (EN, Funi)

A giant who was a former Vice Admiral Marine who has ties with Robin. [[spoiler: It was his unit that captured Oliva (Robin's mother) and her exploration team upon finding out they were studying The Blank Century. When it was ordered they be executed and their home island Ohara destroyed by Buster Call, Saul found the punishment to be way too extreme. He freed Oliva and defected from the Marines. Ironically winding up washed ashore on Ohara. There he befriended a then young Robin as he built himself a raft to leave the island, but the Buster Call arrived before then. He tried to help Robin escape but was caught by Aokiji and frozen. His last words encouraging Robin that she had friends out on the ocean. It's noted he had the D in his name and laughed in death as most D's tend to do.]]
* BadassBeard: Looks like a lion's mare.
* BadassBoast: "You wont get off easily, having made me your enemy!"
* BlackSheep: Despite being a Giant, he despises the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy warriors of Elbaf]] and is much more calm and cool-headed. [[WordOfGod Oda explained that ]] there are many other giant-inhabitated island like Elbaf.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He [[spoiler: lifted ''a whole fucking warship'' and ''threw it''.]]

* FieryRedhead
* GentleGiant
* [[spoiler:[[HumanPopsicle Giant Popsicle]]: How he met his end.]]

* OnlyFriend: To Robin.
* OurGiantsAreBigger: He does seem slightly smaller than other Giants seen in the series, but he's also not from Elbaf, which could explain it.

* SignatureLaugh: Dereshishishishi!

[[folder: Nico Olvia]]
->Voice by: Creator/YurikoYamaguchi (JP), Creator/StephanieYoung (EN, Funi)

As her name indicates, she's Robin's mother. [[spoiler: She was in the exploration team that was studying Poneglyps and the Blank Century. However the team was captured by the Marines and ordered to be executed while the Buster Call was ordered on her island. Saul, disagreeing with such punishment, helped her escape. She made her way back to Ohara only minutes before the Buster Call came, unknowingly passing her daughter in the process. After warning her fellow scholars, she tried to stop Spandine from coming any further but was easily subdued. During the round up of the scholars, she finally meets her daughter in so long. At first denying claims to be her mother, but ultimately breaking down after Robin calls out her.

* StrongFamilyResemblance: Really the only difference between her and her daughter is the color of their hair and eyes.

->Voiced by: Creator/YuichiNagashima (JP)

A very powerful samurai from the country of Wano. His name became legendary when he killed a dragon in ''one hit''. Dr. Hogback eventually found his corpse, and reanimated it using Brook's shadow.
* ActuallyIAmHim: Inverted in ''Monsters''. He expresses a desire to duel "the swordsman king" who is said to be the greatest swordsman in the land. After he kills the dragon and leaves town, one of the residents remembers that the title "swordsman king" is what people decided to call Ryuma after he saved them.
* BackFromTheDead
* {{Badass}}: The guy killed a '''dragon''', for Pete's sake!
** And in ''[[OneHitKill One]]''. ''[[CurbStompBattle Single]]''. ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Hit]]''.

* CanonImmigrant: He was originally from ''[[OnePieceWanted Monsters]]'', a one-shot story Oda wrote 2 years before he started ''OnePiece''.
* CurbStompBattle: Beats Chopper, Nami and Usopp with ease. Also hands one to [[spoiler:Cirano]] in ''[[Manga/OnePieceWanted Monsters]]'' and as stated above, he killed the dragon in a single blow.
* EvilLaugh: A mockery of Brook's "yohohoho!", which from Ryuuma sounds like "Yohohahaha!"
* GracefulLoser: Congratulates Zoro and hands over Shuusui upon his defeat.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Justified, as he comes from the local equivalent of Ancient Japan.
* LegendaryInTheSequel: His act of killing a dragon with a single strike made his name legendary, even in ''One Piece''. His home country considers him a national hero, to the point that the country was brought to its knees when Moriah robbed Ryuma's grave and made off with his corpse and sword.
* LightningBruiser: Ryuuma's natural strength combined with Brook's speed technique is a dangerous combination.
* ManOnFire: How he was defeated.

[[folder:Fisher Tiger "The Adventurer"]]
->Voiced by: KoujiIshii (JP)

A legendary Fishman and leader of the Sunny Pirates, who was known for climbing the Red Line, wreaking havoc on Mariejois and freeing thousands of slaves, both human and fishmen. He later took the Fishmen with him and formed the Sunny Pirates, a crew composed of former slaves and new fishmen alike. [[spoiler: Along with Queen Otohime he fought for stopping the racism between Fishmen and humans with his own "methods", but bled to death because he refused a transfusion of human blood. He was also revealed to be a Tai Snapper (a.k.a. Red Sea Brem) fishman.]]
* {{Badass}}: How else would you call a man able to climb a kilometric, smooth wall for days and still have enough strength back to raze a whole citadel all by himself!?
** BadassBaritone: The anime gives him a voice even deeper than Jinbe's.
** BadassBeard
* ByronicHero
* DeathByIrony: A blood transfusion from a human could have saved him... but it was denied to him.
** [[spoiler: Nope, that's the story his crew made up to keep his heroic image. He still qualifies though since, in truth, he hated humans too much to accept one. Much to his own disgust of himself.]]
* TheFettered: Unlike his subordinate Arlong, he's careful not to allow his anger at humans to overcome him because he knows it would damage his cause.
* IrrationalHatred: As noted in KnightTemplar below. Though, unlike most examples, he's well aware that it's irrational and doesn't want to pass it down to future generations.
* KnightTemplar: Unlike Queen Otohime, he believed that humans and fishmen cannot live together.
** [[spoiler: On his deathbed he admitted that he knew good people do exist and that they are not so different from fishmen but he never could overcome his irrational hatred.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: He's even bigger than Arlong ''and'' Jinbei.
* MoralityChain: Was this to some members of the Sun pirates, especially Arlong.
* MoralityPet: Koala was this to him.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His policy and status resembles those of Malcolm X compared to Otohime's Martin Luther King, Jr. similarity. Furthermore, [[spoiler:the situation that led to his demise]] is similar to the one of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_R._Drew Charles R. Drew]]. albeit that being a urban legend.
* NobleDemon: He [[FantasticRacism hated humans]], but during his rampage in Mariejois he still freed all the slaves, both humans and fishmen.
** He also refused to kill the humans that come after him, since he realizes that it would only prolong the cycle of hatred.
* OneManArmy: He razed Mariejois all by himself.
* PosthumousCharacter
* PunnyName: The Sea Brem is called "Tai" in Japanese.
* ScarsAreForever: Deliberately defied. Tiger rebrands all the slaves he set free with a new symbol, thus forming the Sun Pirates. He then also marked every other member of his crew with the exact same brand, making it impossible to tell which of his crewmen had once been slaves.
* SwordAndGun: In a flashback, he was shown holding a cutlass and a pistol (along with two other swords and a bazooka) during his assault on Mariejois.
* TragicBigot: Suffered so much abuse at the hands of humans that even though he ''knew'' intellectually that he shouldn't hold them as a species responsible for his torment, he simply "[couldn't] love the humans anymore".
* TigerVersusDragon: He's the "Tiger" who opposed to the "Celestial Dragons".
** This trope could arguably used to describe the opposing views of Otohime and himself on fishman/merfolk-human relations, with Otohime being the "Dragon".

->Voiced by: Creator/SatsukiYukino (JP)

A little slave girl who was liberated by Fisher Tiger and taken home by the Sun Pirates.
* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler:First time we see her all grown up, she sits on some mooks she just beat up and it is revealed that she's a substitute Fishman Karate teacher of the revolutionaries.]]
** BadassAdorable: [[spoiler:And she's every bit as cute as she was as a child, to boot]].
* TheBusCameBack: First introduced as a child in a flashback in the Fishman Island arc, then reintroduced [[spoiler:in the present as a young woman, in the Dressrosa arc]].
* {{Foil}}: She acts as one to Nami in almost every way. For one, both are adopted into a group of Fishmen, but while Nami is enslaved, Koala is freed from her slave status.
* HappinessInSlavery: Subverted. She wasn't happy at all to be a slave, but had to fake happiness in order to hide her fear and sadness (See StepfordSmiler below). Because she's been a slave for a seemingly long time, she kept this facade even after being freed, not knowing how to live any other way. She slowly but surely got over it, though.
* MoralityChain: To Macro and Arlong. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to actually make either of them good.
** It did sorta work with Tiger though. Her innocence was enough to convince him that there may hope for positive relations between fishmen and humans. A belief he finally announced on his deathbed.
* NiceGirl: To the Fishman Pirates. After she worked through some of her issues as a former slave, she was still a kind child that even Arlong couldn't harm.
* NiceHat: [[spoiler:Sports one in the present time.]]
* PerpetualSmiler: See below to find out why.
* ScarsAreForever: Defied, Tiger rebrands her just like the Sun Pirates.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: [[spoiler:She's filled out rather well when she shows up in the present.]]
* SheCleansUpNicely: She went from looking like [[http://images.wikia.com/onepiece/images/2/22/Koala.png this]], to looking like [[http://images.wikia.com/onepiece/images/3/3d/Koala_Anime_Infobox.png this]] during her time with the Sun Pirates.
* SlaveBrand: Like all other slaves, she bears the same mark. She later had the mark of the Sun Pirates put over it.
* StepfordSmiler: Because she was a slave, she was scared of being killed by the World Nobles so she kept on a happy face to keep them from doing so. Fisher Tiger was able to help her stop doing it. [[spoiler: Present day Koala still keeps her smile, but now it seems she does because she wants to.]]
* TagalongKid: To the Fishman Pirates.
* TearsOfJoy: After keeping tears in for who knows how long, Fisher Tiger told her that it is OK to cry, that they will not hurt anyone, and vowed to return her home. Cue Koala ([[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming And the audience,]] [[TearJerker for that matter]]) bursting into tears of joy.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Who would have expected this meek little girl to have mastered Fishman Karate?]]

[[folder:Queen Otohime]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MichikoNeya (JP)

A goldfish mermaid and the former queen of the Ryuguu Kingdom. Unlike Fisher, she wanted a peaceful co-existence with the humans. She was assassinated. Her subjects are still loyal to her and her beliefs however.
* AllLovingHero: Somewhat {{exaggerated}}. She can make a violent thief forced into a criminal life by poverty to reconsider his choices by pleading with him, then crying profusely as she sympathizes with his pain, of course after she slaps him several times. She was also immensely influential and gave passionate speeches, as she was adored all over Fishman Island.
** Taken to the absolute extreme when she not only [[spoiler: takes a bullet for a Celestial Dragon]], but then [[spoiler:leaves with him to the Holy Land and ''successfully negotiates with the other world nobles''.]] Wow.
* ArmorPiercingSlap: Subverted. Sure they hurt, and gave the recipient a lesson, but she severely harms herself in the process.
* BadassPacifist: Willing to bear ''all'' the pain and sadness of her people so nobody else has to cry or bleed ever again.
* BreakTheCutie: You can't not feel sorry for her as [[spoiler:the people who once supported her cause start giving up and withdrawing their signatures.]]
* TheEmpath
* GoodParents: She is seen to be very close with all four of her children. Even when she was exhausted from her work and depressed when her people no longer supported her cause, it didn't stop her from putting on a smile for her kids and spending time with them.
* GoOutWithASmile: She smiled as Fukaboshi promises her that he and his brothers will take care of Shirahoshi and that they will make sure that the signatures from their people will be collected.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She has it.
* TheHighQueen: Of Fishman Island.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With her husband.
* InVinoVeritas: When her people, even those who had previously supported her cause, started backing out in the wake of Fisher Tiger's death, she got completely smashed, then got on the radio and viciously called out her subjects for their cowardice while drunk.
* KiAttacks: She is the first known Mermaid to be a confirmed Haki user, capable of using [[SpiderSense Observation Haki or Mantra]].
* MissingMom: Shirahoshi's. The poor girl didn't even get to properly pay her respects to her until Luffy came along, because of Vander Decken.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The Martin Luther King, Jr. to Fisher's Malcolm X. Considering she was assassinated for her cause just as MLK was also draws parallels.
** [[spoiler:As with MLK, Otohime was also assassinated in '''broad daylight''' via sniper gun shot]].
** [[spoiler: The New Fishmen Pirates force the island's citizens to step on a Fumi-e, a reference to how Christians in Japan were forced to step on an icon of the Virgin Mary.]]
* PosthumousCharacter
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Stopped a thief by herself, even though her body is weak.
* SilkHidingSteel: Arguably the bravest and most heroic woman in the ''OnePiece'' universe; and she is not even a warrior at that.
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler:For an assholish {{Jerkass}} World Noble to boot. It just made her more popular. This isn't how she died, however]].
* TenderTears: Like her daughter, she cries at the drop of a hat; but only because her heart is so pure and kind.
* TigerVersusDragon: If you assume that Otohime is the "dragon" to Fisher Tiger's... "tiger".
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth
* UglyGuyHotWife: While Neptune is pretty much a {{Gonk}}, his wife was a beautiful mermaid.
* WeakButSkilled: She has a very fragile body, but makes up for it with diplomatic skills so great that she managed to [[spoiler:get a peace treaty ''from the World Nobles'']]. Let that sink in for a second.
* WideEyedIdealist: More nuanced than the usual "Can't we all just get along" idealist. Her drunken rant revealed that part of her motivation to campaign was anger at the injustice of a world where opportunities for fishmen were forever out of reach for no other reason than because they were fishmen, and she both understood and accepted that some fishmen could never forgive and reconcile with humans, focusing instead on making sure they did not pass their hatred on to the younger generation.

-->"Welcome to ''my'' Impel Down. Excuse me, I was being too ambitious. I'm ''still'' the Vice-Warden, Hannyabal"
->Voiced by: TetsuoGoto (JP)

Easily one of the greatest examples of TheStarscream in manga and anime, Hannyabal is the overly ambitious vice-warden of Impel Down. He appears to be a tall man with a pot-belly and a massive chin, wearing a pharoah's headress. His continuous {{Freudian Slip}}s about his desire to become Warden and silly antics often gain the ire of Magellan, who either {{Dope Slap}}s him, or outright poisons him in anger. Despite his finding him irritating and too ambitious, Magellan considers Hannyabal as his only worthy successor to Chief Warden of Impel Down.

[[spoiler: As of the timeskip, he achieved his dream as he is now the Warden of Impel Down with former Jail Head, Domino, as his number two.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: You think he got this job by kissing ass instead of kicking it? You think just cause he doesn't have a Devil Fruit he won't own you? Even if he gives you a chance to escape? '''Dead wrong.'''
* BadassNormal: Just because he doesn't have a Devil Fruit power, doesn't mean he can't kick ass. He'd just rather not.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Hard to believe but true. [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Guess that's why he's the Vice-Chief]].
* {{Determinator}}: Arguably rivaling Luffy himself. [[spoiler:Luffy beats him to a bloody pulp and is in every way the better fighter, but the man just will not go down. Blackbeard has to do a sneak attack to put an end to it]].
* DistractedByTheSexy: Apparently something of a weakness of his. It's not just that [[spoiler:he gets tricked by Mr. 2 disguised as Nami]], it's that a flashback to his first day on the job has pretty much the ''exact same thing'' happening to him at the hands of a [[TheVamp Vamp]].
* DoubleWeapon: His Naginata Kessui (bloodsucker), which looks more like two [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana merged to the hilts]].
* FlamingSword: Actually a naginata named Kessui (Blood Sucker), but close enough. Doesn't help much, but it was still pretty badass.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Long before he served any purpose but ButtMonkey PluckyComicRelief, some of the guards commented on his ability to [[UnflinchingWalk walk through the superheated and supercooled floors of Impel Down with no ill effects]]. Wow.
* {{Gonk}}
* LanternJawOfJustice
* LargeAndInCharge: Not in charge of Impel Down yet, but with time, Hannyabal, with time...
** [[spoiler: Post TimeSkip, he really ''is'' in charge !]]
* LaughablyEvil: Nearly every time you see this guy, he's acting or saying something that's funny. [[spoiler:This abruptly stopped when he faced off against Luffy]].
* LargeHam: [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130304175041/onepiece/images/2/22/Kid_Hannyabal.png Some things never change]], and apparently his starscream attitude has been consistent since he was very young.
* LetsGetDangerous: Throughout the Impel Down arc, he was basically doing nothing so Magellan would be removed as Warden. When it became clear that Luffy might actually succeed, he put his foot down and held the line.
* NiceHat: Actually a nemes.
** Even better when it's revealed that he had an even ''nicer'' version of it special ordered and on standby for when he eventually became Warden. Unfortunately, he has to break it out prematurely when Mr. 2 steals his regular one.
* NumberTwo: To Magellan.
** [[spoiler: Not anymore, now that he's the warden.]]
* ObviouslyEvil: Subverted. He certainly looks evil, and is willing to sell out his superior for a promotion, but his motivation is to protect the innocent.
* PunnyName: Hannyabal is a combination of both Hannya, the death mask his face resembles, and Hannibal.
* TheStarscream: Openly declares his ambition to become chief, often in ''[[BerserkButton earshot of Magellan]]''. Despite this, Magellan considers him to be a worthy successor.
* ThemeMusicPowerUp: Parodied. When Hannyabal uses his flaming naginata technique, he has guards in the background playing drums and singing a song to cheer him on.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: After the timeskip, he actually DOES become the new warden of Impel Down.]]
* WalkingShirtlessScene: ''Never'' wears a shirt. Never. This is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by the guards when Mr. 2 posed as him, that even in the extreme temperatures of Level 4 and 5, Hannyabal would never wear anything but his pants to show how {{Badass}} he is. Unfortunately, it also doubles as FanDisservice.
* YouShallNotPass: When push comes to shove, he will not let criminals escape from Impel Down. You need to get past him to do it, and he ''will not move''.


[[folder:Commander-in-Chief Kong]]
-> 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 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.
* BiggerBad: Apparently not exactly a "bad" guy, but whenever the Straw Hats face a member of the Government's military, their orders come from him.
* ChekhovsGunman: First seen in silhouette in "Chapter 0," and his existence was hinted at as early as the [[AllThereInTheManual "Yellow" databook]].
* HeroicBuild: One of the bulkier characters seen so far.
* ImprobableHairstyle: Possibly the weirdest yet!
* 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.

* 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!

* MadeOfIron: Dorry shrugged off an explosion from ''inside his stomach''.

[[folder: Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold]]
->Sandersonia Voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito (JP)
->Marigold Voiced by: KimikoSaito (JP)

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 Tenryubito' 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
* BarrierWarrior: Sort of, Mari uses Armaments Haki to deflect enemy attacks.
* [[BigLittleBrother Big Little Sisters]]: 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.
* CurvesInAllTheRightPlaces: Sandersonia does, at least. Even her zoan from has very noticible hip curves, for what passes as hips for a half-snake hybrid.
* DoesNotLikeMen: With Luffy and Rayleigh being the only exceptions, much like their sister.
* CombatClairvoyance: Sonia's speciality is Observation Haki.
* FatGirl: Mari.
* 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 [[spoiler: 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
* {{Morality Pet}}s: To Hancock.
* 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, [[spoiler: 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 You Gotta Have Green Hair]]: Sonia.

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 [[spoiler: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: "Horohorhorohoro!"
* AstralProjection: One of her Devil Fruits powers is to separate her own spirit from her body, although this leaves said body vulnerable.
* CornerOfWoe: Another of her powers, Negative Hollow, forces people into one.

Whitebeard, however, proves him wrong and forgives him.]] After the war, his whereabouts are unknown.
* [[spoiler: TheAtoner: After Whitebeard forgave him, he becomes this.]]
* {{BFS}}: One of his weapons is a gargantuan katana, possibly a ''Zanmato''.
* CallingTheOldManOut: [[spoiler: Shouts at Whitebeard after Akainu tricked him into believing that the Old Man sold them all.]]
* [[spoiler: [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Did You Just Stab Whitebeard?]]: Yes, he did.]]

* FaceOfAThug: He looks quite bad, but is more like a BoisterousBruiser.
* InformedAbility: Despite being one of the New World Captains, he's not that impressive. Also the reasons behind his nickname are unknown...
* TheLancer: Whitebeard seems to consider Squard this, since he refers to him to coordinate the movements of the allies.

->Voiced by: Creator/AkiraIshida (JP)

A Super Rookie and the captain of the Beautiful Pirates. He made a name for himself after he made it to the new world but after the events of the Battle of Marineford and being overshadowed by the rookies of the "Worst Generation", he holds a grudge against Luffy and the other Supernovas for stealing his spotlight away from him. He enters the Corrida Colosseum hoping to win the Flame-Flame Fruit.

* AgentPeacock: When you are able to [[spoiler:tank a 500,000,000 Beri pirate's headbutt attack with a sword thinner than one of said pirate's strands of hair]], you have earned your place in the New World.
** [[spoiler: Hakuba is even tougher than him!]]
* AttentionWhore: When [[spoiler:his evil side went out to become a pirate]] Cavendish decided to go with it because of all the popularity he would get.
** The reason he's angry at Luffy and the Worst Generation is that it diverts people's attentions from him. His reason for taking down Doflamingo is that he believes it can make him more famous than them, and he accuses Luffy for trying to hog his fame when he declares he's also going to kick Doflamingo's ass.
* AwesomeButImpractical: As Vice Admiral Bastille points out, [[spoiler:his Hakuba personality is a fearsome speed-demon, but it is ill-suited for match-type fights like the one he's participating.]] See HoistByHisOwnPetard below for why.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassNormal
* {{Bishonen}}: Complete with {{Bishie Sparkle}}s.
* CoolHorse: Has a pet white horse named Farul.
* DartboardOfHate: He has the most recent bounty posters of the Eleven Supernovas, ''covered'' in knife holes. He even makes a note he must get some new ones because his current ones are so holey now.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Cavendish wants to kill the Eleven Supernovas simply because they took focus away from his popularity, especially during the war. Luffy even lampshades how ridiculous a grudge this is.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: It's not only female spectators who [[LoveCanMakeYouGonk get heart-shaped eyes]] when he walks into the arena.
* HeroicRROD: [[spoiler: Hakuba doesn't hold back one bit when in control of Cavendish's body; when he wakes up in the Colosseum he goes all-out for literally a second or two - which is enough time to kill or incapacitate ''everyone else in the fight'' apart from Rebecca - and then immediately passes out again]].
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: His Hakuba personality manages to CurbStomp everyone in Block D except for Rebecca and even she was knocked over by him. However in order to be declared as a winner of such a battle royale, one has to be conscious so he was defeated on a technicality.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite wanting to kill Luffy for very petty reasons, Cavendish's treatment of Rebecca shows a better side of him.
* LostInTranslation: His epithet "White Horse" is written in kanji which is why most scanlators translate it in English. [[spoiler: His split personality's name "Hakuba" is written in katakana and left as is as it makes more sense phonetically.]]
* {{Narcissist}}: Oh, so very much.
* [[spoiler: NightmareFace: He puts on a frightening face consisting of MilkyWhiteEyes and a SlasherSmile when his Hakuba personality takes over.]]
* [[spoiler:NonIndicativeName]]: His epithet seems blatantly obvious since he rides a white horse, [[spoiler:but it's actually the name of his evil split personality]].
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Cavendish has a grudge against the 11 Supernovas for this reason. And mostly because he wanted [[AttentionWhore the female attention]] his infamy brought.
* RoyalRapier: His CoolSword Durandal, which is one of the legendary swords.
* ShoutOut: Cavendish's name is a reference to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Cavendish Thomas Cavendish]], continuing the series' tradition of naming characters after real-life pirates and privateers.
** MeaningfulName: His name however also appears to be derived from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cavendish_Square Cavendish Square]], [[spoiler: a major location in which Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde takes place in and for which ties in with his Hakuba personality.]]
** [[spoiler: Furthering the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde reference, Rommel, the kingdom from which Cavendish hails from looks distinctively like London with its Big Ben-like clock tower.]]
* SmallNameBigEgo: He actually does have somewhat of a name, but his ego is still oversized compared to it.
* SomethingAboutARose: Being a blatant parody of ''bishōnen'' types, it's only natural that he would carry a rose around. What's unnatural is how he ended up ''eating'' it.
* [[spoiler:SplitPersonality]]
** [[spoiler:SuperpoweredEvilSide]]: Cavendish's epithet "Hakuba" (Japanese for "White Horse"). [[spoiler:In truth, Hakuba is a split personality which awakens when [[SleepWalking he falls asleep]]. Hakuba is ''much'' faster than Cavendish, so much so that it looks like the wind itself is slashing away]].

A former pirate and leader of the Happo Navy and a participant in the Corrida Coliseum. He holds a grudge against Garp for ruining his life. He extended this grudge onto his grandson Luffy, but Luffy, being himself, manages to make him an ally.
* AnnoyingArrows: When Luffy dodges all of Jean Ango's projectile weapons with Observation Haki, they end up lodged in Chinjao's gut. All this does is make him mad; he then headbutts Jean away from the ring.
* {{Badass}}: He has a bounty exceeding '''''500 Million'''''. That alone should tell you this guy means business.
** BadassGrandpa: He is this too. He outlasted his grandchildren and was one of the few serious threats Luffy had in his round.
** BadassBeard: [[ExpressiveHair It waves around when he's angry]], to boot.
* ChekhovsGun: We're expecting the [[spoiler:giant army of soldiers his sons owned that he just gave to Luffy]] to be one. This is Oda, there's almost no way something this big won't be one of these.

-->'''Chinjao''' (to Luffy): The seas that lie ahead of you... are littered with countless souls who possess the king's will. Your fate will play out there.. You and your fellow conquerors will butt heads and vie for the top spot... The last man standing there is who the Pirate King will be!!
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:During a duel with him, Garp deformed his massive, drill-like head, robbing him of his SignatureMove and being able to open a massive sheet of ice that held his family's treasure.]]
* {{Expy}}: His [[spoiler:former drill-like head]] likens him to the character Senkaku from RurouniKenshin. He also looks like a larger version of the King from ''WesternAnimation/ThePoint''

* HeelFaceTurn: He initially wants to kill Luffy, but gets over his grudge when [[spoiler: he restores his pointed head.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Luffy punched Chinjao's head so hard that [[spoiler:the spike on his head came back out]].

* SinsOfOurFathers: Or in this case, Grandfathers as Chinjao has a grudge against Luffy because [[spoiler:his pointy head - the key for accessing his treasures - was flattened]] by Garp, to the point of revealing his identity in the presence of Cavendish who has vowed to kill Luffy and the other Supernovas.
** PayEvilUntoEvil[=/=]RevengeByProxy: Chinjao has lost [[spoiler:his power]] because of Garp, and he decides to kill Luffy to make it even.
** He even considers waiting for [[spoiler:Doflamingo's]] grandchildren for his retribution after [[spoiler:he's trapped underground with the tourney losers.]]
* TenderTears: Chinjao suddenly bursts into this, apparently because he remembers things that he shouldn't. He simply dislikes his past (see DarkAndTroubledPast above).
* UseYourHead: He specializes in headbutts which are known to ''crack continents in half''. [[spoiler:This is because his head was long and pointy like a drill.]]
* WakeUpCallBoss: Luffy's first challenging opponent after his two years of training.

* TheBartender

A young rich girl from Syrup Village, and a good friend of Usopp's.
* [[UnclePennybags Aunt Pennybags]]: Very much enjoys Usopp's stories, and gave the Straw Hats the Going Merry.
* BigFancyHouse: Well, she ''is'' rich...
* HospitalHottie: Shaping up to be one, at least, considering she's been studying to be a doctor since the East Blue arc. More than qualifies in-universe as well, considering she's been shown to have suitors lining up for her.
* IllGirl: Initially, although she gets better soon.
* MeaningfulName: Probably unintentional, but her name is a Malay word for "rich, wealthy". No prizes for guessing her financial status.
* NiceGirl
* {{Ojou}}
* SpoiledSweet
* StopOrIShootMyself: Threatened to cut her own throat to stop Jango from attacking the Usopp pirates any more. Since she hadn't written the will Jango needs yet, it works.

Sanji's mentor, and an ex-pirate, Zeff is a the proprietor of the Baratie. In his pirating days, he spent a year in the Grand Line, and while in the East Blue attacked the ship Sanji worked on. A storm destroyed the ship and his own, leaving him and Sanji to almost starve to death on a barren rock. After being rescued, he set up the Baratie, and taught Sanji how to cook and fight.
* [[spoiler:{{Autocannibalism}}]]: In the manga, [[spoiler:he ate his own leg so as not to starve to death while on the island]]. In the anime, this was [[{{Bowdlerize}} changed]] to [[spoiler:getting his leg caught in some wreckage while trying to save Sanji from drowning]].
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAndChildDuo: In flashback.
** BadassGrandpa
** BadassMustache: He [[RealMenWearPink braids]] it.
** BadassNormal: For a guy with no Devil Fruit powers, surviving a year inside the Grand Line is quite a feat.
** HandicappedBadass: The [[BlowYouAway wind]] from kicking his peg leg can stop flaming bullets. And he wasn't even trying hard.
** RetiredBadass: Once a feared pirate, now a chef exclusively.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: His legs are powerful enough to destroy boulders and leave foot prints in steel.
* ChefOfIron
* ChekhovsGun: He's the first person seen to refer to the first half of the Grand Line as "Paradise." Why is this significant? Because, ''500-some chapters later'', we discover that [[spoiler:this is the term used for it by New World pirates, referring to the huge difficulty spike between the two seas]]. Naturally, this has led to a lot of WildMassGuessing that Zeff was a [[spoiler:New World pirate]] himself.
* CoolOldGuy
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He wasn't the nicest pirate, but his rule is DON'T STEAL FOOD, and Heaven help you if you do.
* GrumpyOldMan: While he isn't ''that'' old, he does grump a bit.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Him and Sanji. They first met when the latter was a cabin boy.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He may be a jerk who doesn't hesitate to lay the smackdown on Sanji, but he truly does care for Sanji, and cried...[[ManlyTears uh, leaked Liquid Pride]] when Sanji left. He was later seen rejoicing with the others when Sanji earned his first bounty.
* LifeOrLimbDecision: The loss of his leg was because he saved Sanji. The details differ from manga ([[spoiler: ''eating it himself'' so Sanji would have enough food to survive]]) to anime ([[spoiler: while saving little Sanji from the drowning ship, he got caught in the wreckage and it was either cutting it on the spot or both of them dying]]).
* PromotionToParent / ParentalSubstitute
* RedBaron: He earned the moniker Red-Leg because of the blood from those he kicked got spilled on him.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Him and Sanji do go at it, but deep down, they care for each other.
* WouldHurtAChild: Had no qualms kicking Sanji when they first met. And this was before they became friends.
** Sanji also mentions in the Arlong Park arc that growing up as a teenager on the Baratie, Zeff would often continue to kick him at ''full'' power; which, effectively, [[TrainingFromHell is one of the reasons Sanji has such a high damage soak nowadays.]]

Nami's adoptive older sister. Their hometown was destroyed during the war, and she and Nami were among the very few survivors. The orphaned Nojiko found an also orphaned baby Nami among the ruins and carried her around in her arms, until she found their soon-to-be mother Bellemere...
* BigDamnHeroes: In a sense, Belle-Mere was about to let herself die after fighting in a brutal war on Nami and Nojiko's island that left her severely wounded. If Nojiko hadn't shown up when she did, that would've been the case.

* SoleSurvivor: Along with Nami, who was a baby at the time, they're the only survivors from their initial hometown after a pirate attack.

Mayor/sheriff of Cocoyashi.
* BadassMoustache
* CoolOldGuy
* FaceOfAThug: One that scared Nami when she was a baby, too.
* NiceHat: With a whimsical pinwheel attached to it since Nami was a baby. He did this to distract her from being intimidated by his face so she would laugh instead of crying. Genzo wears the pinwheel even after she's matured, since her life is so rough and she requires something to make her smile. [[spoiler: He later leaves the pinwheel behind at Bell-Mère's grave when Arlong is defeated, knowing he doesn't need it anymore.]]
* OverprotectiveDad: When he sees Nami's wanted poster, his first reaction is to call the Marines and complain...that the sexy picture will attract more suitors than bounty hunters. (Not that it stopped him from blowing it up on his wall...)
** He also tells Luffy that he'll kill him if he "breaks (Nami's) heart".
* ParentalSubstitute: While he is not officially Nami and Nojiko's dad, he certainly acts like one to the girls.
* PapaWolf: He was fine with Arlong allowing Nami to buy back Cocoyashi while he made sure the village was safe. But once Arlong tried to use a LoopholeAbuse to keep Nami in his employ. That was line crossing, so much so that he rallies the entire village for an assault on Arlong Park all for Nami's sake.
* ScarsAreForever: Got scars etched all over his body when he stood against the Arlong Pirates and Kuroobi gutted him in response.

Mostly to help Roger stay alive for one final journey.]]
* AnimeHair: Flower-shaped.
* BadassGrandpa: Vivi and Mr. 9 shot him several times with ''bazookas'', and the guy came out OK. And if that isn't badass enough for you, [[spoiler: he also used to be a member of Roger's crew]].
* BladeOnAStick: Fights with harpoons.
* CombatMedic: [[spoiler:Especially back when he was in Roger's crew.]]
* CoolOldGuy

* MadeOfIron: His age doesn't stop him from swimming in a lake of digestive juice or taking several bazooka bullets to the chest.
* RetiredBadass: [[spoiler: He used to be the doctor of Roger's crew.]]
* RunningGag: He lampshades his own [[InvokedTrope running gag]] to stare people threateningly only to claim to be totally harmless in the next panel.



A huge whale who Crocus looks after. He's waiting for a pirate crew he met 50 years ago to return as they promised.
* {{Bowdlerize}}: [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] [[{{Macekre}} infamously]] removed Laboon and replaced him with, of all things, an ''iceberg'' (that still seemed to make whale cries).
* ChekhovsGunman: Turns out that Brook was part of the pirate crew Laboon was waiting for; he is the only surviving member, and his main goal in life is to get back to Laboon and fulfill the promise his crew made.
* CoveredWithScars: From years of angrily smashing into the Red Line.
** The Straw Hat Pirates later discover that an Island Whale's pod [[MachoMasochism all have similar scars on their foreheads]].
* GentleGiant
* IntellectualAnimal: Laboon is heavily emotional and surprisingly understanding for a whale. He can understand the human language and the motives behind people's actions.
* MysteriousAnimalSenses: Halfway round the world the Straw Hats find Laboon's dearest friend, Brook. Crocus comments on how Laboon seems to be in good spirits, which Laboon replies to with a triumphant roar, as if knowing that the Straw Hat Pirates and Brook will return.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: At least as [[http://i41.tinypic.com/20t1d8i.jpg a baby whale]]. [[{{Squee}} Dawww~!]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: His name has sometimes been spelled as "Raboon".
* SuperToughness: He can feel pain, but due to his immense size, Laboon is resistant to most physical damage, as shown by his unrelenting headbutting of the Red Line.
* ThePromise: Laboon gains a badly drawn copy of the Straw Hats' Jolly Roger painted across his scars. Luffy promised Laboon that he would return to see him, under the guise of wanting a rematch, moving Laboon to tears of joy. Luffy warns Laboon that the insignia will wash away if Laboon continues hitting Reverse Mountain further. Laboon has not hit the mountain since.

Drum's number one doctor, also called "Witch". Is a lively old woman who lives in the royal castle. She adopted Chopper after Hiriluk's demise and taught him her medical knowledge.
* AxCrazy: The lengths she'll go to hurt you if you anger her are insane.
* BattleaxeNurse: Only with dissection blades.
** ''Only'' dissection blades? [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Try entire armories!]]
* BerserkButton: You better not call her "old", unless you want to get kicked across the room.
* ButterFace: A RunningGag with her is that upon meeting her, people are often stunned by how beautiful her body looks. Then they see her face.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Ya happy?"
* CoolOldLady
* CoolShades
* DrJerk: Sure she is, but it's mostly in the interest of her patients.
* DynamicEntry: "Doctor Stop".
* {{Hammerspace}}: Where she gets the stuff she can chuck at people from. She can even throw ''chickens'' at them !
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Essentially this. She's genuinely interested in helping people, and willingly took on Chopper as a student when Hiriluk (whom she otherwise regarded as a quack) died. She cries when he leaves (in between chucking battleaxes at him) and is pleased to know he's doing well when he gets a wanted poster (though she hopes the 50 Beli is a mistake)
* KnifeNut: She uses dissection blades as her main weapon, when she's not busy breaking stone walls by kicking them hard.
** Or when she's not throwing an army's worth of medieval weaponry at you.
* LongLived
* NeverMessWithGranny: Oooh boy...
* [[NonActionGuy Non Action Girl]]: During the fight against Wapol's goons she states that she'll take part to the fight only if they need her help.
* MsExposition: Subverted. She was the first person in the series to mention the mysterious "Will of D", but she never elaborated it.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She's actually 139 years old.
* RunningGag: She often asks around if they want to know the secret for her age and young looks. Nobody is interested.
** More like interrupting any question as if THAT is what they wanted to ask. They quickly correct her, apparently fearing the answer.
** Another one is people mistaking her for a young woman until they see her ButterFace.
* TapOnTheHead: Her preferred method of anesthesia: have Chopper give the patient a concussion.
* {{Tsundere}}: She cries when Chopper leaves the castle (after chasing him with knives and all, mind you).

* HeroicBuild
* ImprobableWeaponUser: A large spade.

* IllBoy: Post-TimeSkip
* PapaWolf: Came to Vivi's rescue when bandits tried to kidnap her.
** OverprotectiveDad: Zigzagged. He cares enough about Vivi's safety to follow her when she visits the Sand Sand clan, but his response to her getting beaten up by Koza is to dismiss the incident as a simple children's fight.
* PervertDad: He doesn't seem to mind peeping at Nami in the steambaths.

** Not that it excuses this, said daughter happens to [[GenerationXerox look]] ''[[GenerationXerox exactly]]'' [[StrongFamilyResemblance like his late wife]].

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Cares very deeply for his country and tries the best he can to help his subjects.
* TheReveal: His role in expositioning about the secrets his ancestors kept, and had passed onto him, such as the Ancient Weapons and the Poneglyphs can be summed up to this, pre-timeskip [[spoiler: and post-timeskip, it's revealed almost nonchalantly his ancestors were none other than one of the 20 Kings who founded the World Goverment - This guy could easily have been a Celestial Dragon if his Ancestors didn't stay to rule and fulfill their obligations, and he might still be considered a World Noble.]]

* {{BFG}}: She wielded a bazooka during her CMOA.

After the Straw Hats win the Davy Back Fight, Aokiji freezes the water so Tonjit can rejoin his tribe.

* GenkiGirl: Chimney.
* MadeOfIron: They were in a train crash, well it was more the train was ''launched like a rocket into a building'', and only got a nose bleed. It's especially impressive considering they are both very young and have zero combat experience, unlike the other passengers.
* PerpetualSmiler: Both of 'em.

He also helped to build the Thousand Sunny and convinced Franky to leave with the Straw Hats.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Subverted. He's just really good at making ships.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He named his pet mouse Tyrannosaurus and abandoned all his appointments on a whim. He's also possibly the best shipwright in the world. His dream is to turn Water 7 into a ship.
* TheChessmaster: Does a pretty good job against the World Government and CP9 at keeping the Pluton blueprints out of their hands (he was successful for a good 10 years or so) but he's outmatched by the ruthlessness of Lucci.
* CoolOldGuy: Though he's only 38 when he first appears, he does get called old by his employees and Luffy, and he's extraordinarily helpful in the Straw Hats quest to get Robin back, so he definitely qualifies.
* GodzillaThreshold: The only reason he doesn't just burn the Pluton blueprints is this. If someone who could read the poneglyphs were to find one of the ancient weapons, the only counter measure would be a new warship made from the blueprints by the Water 7 shipwrights.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: In his youth, especially compared to Franky and his [[HotBloodedSideburns hairstyle]].
* MadeOfIron: Survives being shot five times and the next night shot again and left in a burning building.

The ex-ex-''ex''-empress of [[LadyLand Amazon Lily]], given the name Gloriosa, Elder Nyon is an elderly lady who lives on the outskirts of Amazon Lily, as a consequence of leaving the island and abandoning her duties, [[spoiler: after she came down with "love sickness", and somehow surviving when her predecessors didn't]]. However, during her time away, she learned several things about the world outside the isolated island, including about the opposite gender, the politics of the world and she also [[spoiler:met a member of the Roger Pirates, Silvers Rayleigh and Shakuyaku; and discovered Boa Hancock and her sisters, Sandersonia and Marigold, who were previously missing for four years after they were enslaved by the Celestial Dragons, bringing them back home]].

Nyon takes her role as a senior figure to the Kuja Amazons, and something of an adviser to the current empress "Snake Princess" Boa Hancock (albeit their often antagonistic relationship), and her interest in current affairs keeps Hancock informed; important considering her Warlord position. When Luffy arrived on the island, she was surprised by his spirit, his luck and his kindness. She informed Luffy of [[spoiler:Ace's execution]], and warned him of the dangers that follow, and was surprised to see him survive both [[spoiler:Impel Down ''and'' the Whitebeard War in two days]].
* CoolOldLady
* DestinationDefenestration: Dammit, [[{{Jerkass}} Hancock]].
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens
* MsExposition: Like Shakky, she reads a lot of newspapers. She's even surprised that an infamous pirate like Luffy has such an ignorance of the world.
* NeverMessWithGranny: In the anime, she felled ''Luffy'' with a drop-kick. She also easily recovered from [[DestinationDefenestration defenestration off a building around 50 feet high by Hancock.]] These skills are to be expected considering she's a...
** RetiredBadass: She was, after all, former empress of the Kuja, who live under the philosophy "strength is beauty".
* OlderAndWiser: To Hancock. Especially in regards to "love sickness", and serious decisions involving the WG.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: The one resident of Kuja island who doesn't sycophantly agrees with everything Hancock says. She's often the voice of reason for Hancock, as she constantly urges Hancock to be more responsible.
* [[StraightMan Straight Old Lady]]: To Hancock.
* VerbalTic: She only says "nyo" in her sentences.


->Voiced by: MasumiAsano (JP)

* BadassAdorable : She doesn't get to fight onscreen much, but still. [[spoiler: Hell, she even became a member of the Kuja Pirates after the timeskip, which most definitely means she's stronger than she looks.]]
* BareYourMidriff

[[folder:Curly Dadan]]
->Voiced by: NorikoUemura (JP)

Luffy and Ace's caretaker who watched over them when they were kids at the "request" of Garp (i.e: forced into it). She and her gang are mountain bandits of Luffy's home island and are thus criminals. Though Garp is willing to overlook their crimes as long as they do what he asks of them.
* AnAxeToGrind: Her main weapon.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Always wished Luffy, Ace and Sabo would just get out of her hair despite the threat of Garp hanging over her head. But when Ace and later Luffy left on their own and gave her thanks for raising them, she burst into tears.
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: She was already having trouble with Ace when Luffy came along. Sabo joining them didn't help much either.
* BoxedCrook: Garp blackmails her into looking after Ace and Luffy by threatening to have her arrested for being a mountain bandit.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: It's there, just hard to find but is there.
* MamaBear: [[spoiler: She attacked the pirate captain Blue Jam in order to protect Ace and Luffy.]]

[[folder:Madame Sharley]]
->Voiced by: Creator/RomiPark (JP)

A beautiful, large Shortfin Mako Mermaid who runs the Mermaid Café in Fishman Island. She's also a well known seeress, and foretold great events like the coming of the Great Age of Piracy and [[spoiler: Whitebeard's]] death. [[spoiler: She recently freaked out when she predicted Ryugu Island destruction at the hands of a person wearing a "straw hat", which may indicate Luffy or Decken.]]
* AbsoluteCleavage: Sports a minor one.
* BerserkButton: Usually she's extremely [[ProperLady calm and polite]] but in the name of God, [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110112193023/onepiece/images/f/f9/Op2.png don't be vulgar when she's nearby!]]
* [[ThreateningShark Everything's Even Worse With Sharks]]: Partially subverted, she's a very nice person. Just don't be rude with her.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking
* InTheHood
* LargeAndInCharge: She owns the Mermaid Café and is surprisingly big for a mermaid.
* NightmareFace: At Usopp and Luffy, when they were messing with her CrystalBall. Complete with fangs.
* ProphecyTwist: [[spoiler:She foresaw the destruction of Fishman Island. Only it wasn't literal. Unless there's more to come, of course.]]
* {{Seers}}: She's a well known seeress, but know she has given up her career. [[spoiler: Only to casually fortell the destruction of Fishman Island.]]
* SiblingYinYang: A surprising one. [[spoiler: Who would've guessed that such a nice lady ([[NightmareFace except for when she's mad]]) could be the younger sister of ''Arlong''?]]
* StatuesqueStunner: She's very beautiful and also enormous compared to normal merpeople.

[[folder: King Neptune]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MinoruInaba (JP)

The King of the Ryuugu Kingdom in Fishman Island.
* ApologizesALot: A running gag for him when he was first introduced.

** BadassBeard
** BadassGrandpa
* [[spoiler:DistressedDude: Was almost executed by Jones but rescued in Chapter 633.]]
* {{Gonk}}
* TheGoodKing
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With his wife, Otohime.

* ProngsOfPoseidon: He's a mermaid king, so, yeah no brainer.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Even after hearing Shirley's prophecy, he only orders the Straw Hats captured not harmed.
* RedBaron: Kaishin (Sea God) Neptune.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: While he admits he's getting on in years, he isn't afraid to protect his subjects even if he has to take damage.
* [[spoiler:TroubledFetalPosition]]: [[spoiler:He did NOT take his wife's death well. It's actually one of the most disturbing scenes in the manga...]]
* UglyGuyHotWife
* VerbalTic: "Jamon".


->Voiced by: Creator/MegumiHayashibara (JP)

A prideful female warrior who has joined the Dressrosa tournament at Corrida Colosseum, with intentions of winning the Flame Flame fruit and killing Doflamingo.
* ActionGirl: Also known as the "Undefeated Woman".
* {{Badass}}: She's able to defeat dozens of powerful fighters ''without even hurting them''. She gets extra badass points for being one of the youngest, if not ''the'' youngest, contestants in the tournament.
** BadassAdorable: Maybe not "dawww"-inducingly so, but still very cute, especially when she softens up near Luffy.
** [[spoiler:BadassPrincess]]: Revealed to be this. And another reason Doflamingo wants her dead.
** BadassPacifist: She's the first character seen with a totally Observation Haki-based fighting style, and thus fights by ''dodging'' her opponents in creative ways that result in them taking out themselves or each other. [[spoiler: [[ChekhovsSkill This ability makes her]] [[TacticalRockPaperScissors the perfect counter]] to the rampaging Cavendish, as she's just fast enough to take a non-fatal blow to her helmet while everyone else gets cut down, winning her the D-Block round.]]
* BareYourMidriff: Given what she's wearing...
* BraidsOfAction: Under her helmet.
* ChainmailBikini: Almost literally: she wears nothing but a paludamentum (mantle), helmet, greaves and bracers. Her body armor consists of scaled brassiers and loincloth.
* CombatClairvoyance: Is hinted to have Observation Haki.
* CoolHelmet: Likes to wear one in combat. It actually saved her life during the D-Block round.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: She lived on the point of starvation with her mother, then [[spoiler:her mother was killed and she too was hunted. Only the one-legged toy soldier was her friend as they fought to survive under Doflamingo's rule.]]
* DramaticIrony: When Thunder Soldier come to her and tell her not to participate in the tournament (and calling her "not an adult despite 16 already"), she gets enraged, stating that they cannot wait any longer since everyone is losing hope, deriding the statue of Kyros as nothing but a fictional, idealized soldier that represents the hope that the convict gladiators may one day escape captivity, and then shouts that he isn't even her real father. He leaves, and she deeply regrets her words. [[spoiler:The irony being that Thunder Soldier is actually Kyros -- ''and her biological father''. We don't learn the former until the end of the chapter, but the point still stands.]]
* DeadlyDodging: Her main method of combat in the colosseum is by dodging her enemies' attacks and leave them helpless from the recovery to strike back.
* EasilyForgiven: She tries to kill Luffy, but he shrugs it off because she didn't really do it out of malice, she was extremely outmatched, and she brought him lunch.
* FragileSpeedster: She's clearly not as tough as the likes of Luffy or the other competitors, but she's very fast, using that advantage to get them to take each other and themselves out without ever having to strike back. [[spoiler: She's even fast enough to avoid being hit too hard by Hakuba's attacks, granting her victory in her block.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Goes through one when [[spoiler:she learns that Diamante killed her mother, Scarlett]].
* HiddenDepths: Rebecca seems to have a mysterious past involving Spartan, Thunderous Soldier of Rage, and Doflamingo. To a lesser extent, with Kyros (a legendary combatant) and Ricky as well. [[spoiler:It's revealed that she's a princess of the royal family, Ricky being King Riku (her grandfather), and the Soldier being her father in toy form. And Doflamingo is the one who toppled her grandfather and radically changed Dressrosa into what it is now.]]
* TheLawOfDiminishingDefensiveEffort: Inverted (change "defensive" to "offensive") - she usually doesn't attack much on her own (outside of CounterAttack), but she starts to charge at Diamante. This change of strategy is noted by the commentator.
* [[spoiler:LukeIAmYourFather]]: Unbeknownst to her, the Thunderous Soldier of Rage, [[spoiler:the toy who raised her as his adoptive daughter, is in fact her ''biological'' father turned into a toy]]. It's stated that the reason Rebecca doesn't know this is because [[spoiler:her father was turned into a toy prior to their meeting and he decided to withhold the information from her -- probably because toys who attempt to reveal the truth of their identities and their previous human nature are immediately sent to the scrap heap, and possibly because she forgot about his existence entirely thanks to the effects of Sugar's devil fruit]]. The aspect of the reveal for the trope is downplayed because he revealed it not to Rebecca, but to the Straw Hats and the Tontatta Tribe.
** [[spoiler:Becomes a double doozy when it's revealed -- again, to others, not Rebecca herself -- that the Toy Soldier is ''also'' the legendary gladiator Kyros, who once fought three thousand straight battles without suffering a single hit.]]
** She learns about it, [[spoiler:after all toys are transformed back and Rebecca regains the memories about her father.]]
* NerfArm: Like Ricky's sword, hers is also blunt. [[spoiler:You see, they're grandpa and granddaughter.]]
* RingOut: Her main method of disposing of opponents. It's noted that she has never injured any enemy directly because she always does this.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: [[spoiler:She pretty much [[SheIsAllGrownUp grew up]] to be the spitting image of her late mother Scarlett.]]
* [[spoiler:SinsOfOurFathers]]: Because her grandfather [[spoiler:was the previous king of Dressrosa]] and everybody hated him, the audiences in the coliseum all boo and jeer at her. [[spoiler:Of course, that was a FrameUp by Doflamingo.]]
* WorthyOpponent: Rebecca seems to feel this way towards Luffy as she said it would be nice if they both progressed to the second round of the tournament.
* YouAreNotMyFather: When Thunder Soldier come to her and tell her not to participate in the tournament (and calling her "not an adult despite 16 already"), she gets enraged and shouts this at him. He just leaves and goes on to carry his plan, while she deeply regrets it. [[spoiler:The tragic irony being that he ''is'' her father.]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Pink Hair]]: Yes she does.

[[folder:Ricky [[spoiler: (Riku Dold III)]]]]
->Voiced by: N/A

A gladiator who joined the Dressrosa tournament at Corrida Colosseum.
* [[spoiler: HundredPercentAdorationRating: Riku was a beloved king who helped the other countries, protected his people, and his family managed to avoid going into war ever since they took charge of Dressrosa.]]
** [[spoiler: ZeroPercentApprovalRating: After the incident that Doflamingo caused, everybody, including the other countries, hated him and his bloodline. How Dressrosa sees him now, due to their discovering Donflamingo manipulated him into killing so many people, isn't clear yet.]]
* [[spoiler: AintTooProudToBeg: Riku got on his hands and knees and begs for his people, on a video Den Den Mushi, to give them their fortune to pay Doflamingo's fee.]]
* BadassGrandpa
* BerserkerTears: [[spoiler:As he's manipulated by Doflamingo into killing his own people, he's visibly crying.]]
* DotingParent: He really loves his granddaughter, to the point that he was shown crying ManlyTears in a flashback to her birth.
* [[spoiler:TheGoodKing: See HundredPercentAdorationRating. His country may have been poor but it was thriving and his people loved him.]]
* NerfArm: Ricky fights with only a blunt sword, and knocks people out with the hilt rather than hit them conventionally.
* [[spoiler: RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething]]


->Voiced by: N/A

Kin'emon's samurai friend. Upon washing up on the shores of Dressrosa, he, Kin'emon, Momonosuke and a fourth samurai were apprehended by Doflamingo's troops. Kanjuro allowed himself to be captured to give his friends enough time to escape. He ate a Devil Fruit that allows him to bring to life anything he draws.
* ArtInitiatesLife: Although ironically, he sucks at drawing.
* DistressedDude: By way of HeroicSacrifice. Saving him becomes one of the Straw Hats' objectives in Dressrosa. [[spoiler:He eventually becomes a [[DamselOutOfDistress Dude OUT of Distress]] after he escapes on his own.]]
* RapunzelHair: Going all the way down to his feet.
* {{Samurai}}
* TerribleArtist: Ironically, given his ability.


! Revolutionaries
[[folder:Dragon "The Revolutionary"]]
-->"Ride the winds of change, my son. That day you and I meet will come soon enough, I'm sure."

->Voiced by: HidekatsuShibata (JP), DanGreen (EN, 4Kids), Creator/BryanMassey (EN, Funi)

"Dragon The Revolutionary" is the son of a notable Marine and the father of an infamous pirate. A very mysterious man, very few know about his relation to them due to him being leader of the Revolutionaries -- who directly oppose the World Government -- and being the world's most wanted man. The World Government fears his ideas will spread chaos in the world, and he has apparently already spread them through many nations... mostly through war. His comrade, former ruler of Kamabakka Kingdom Emporio Ivankov, noted that he had the habit of always facing in the same direction when stepping out for air in his base. This could indicate he would occasionally feel homesick.
* AnimeHair: He's like [[DragonBall Raditz]].
* {{Badass}}: Calmly stopped Smoker from capturing Luffy by merely holding the jutte on his back.
** AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Heavily implied. Ivankov, who's no pushover himself, mentions that pissing him off is just as bad an idea as challenging Whitebeard. [[spoiler: Not to mention post-Timeskip Sabo, his second-in-command was personally taught his fighting style]].
* BigDamnHeroes: Interestingly, he does these very subtly, like that whole business back in Loguetown (unclear if the lighting storm hitting Buggy when he was about to execute Luffy was him, but appearing behind Smoker to stop him capturing Luffy was definitely). And ten years before the main story began, his intervention in the burning of Gray Terminal lead to far less deaths than there would've been. [[spoiler: He also saved Sabo's life when his ship was blown up by a World Noble, when everyone was sure that he died]].
* DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: He is the most wanted man in the world and considering what the government [[spoiler:[[MoralEventHorizon did on an island to those who they suspect to be the lover and child of Gold Roger]]]], he had a damn good reason to leave the [[spoiler:East Blue.]]
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler:Luffy]] didn't even know he ''had'' a father.
* DramaticWind: Seems to be his motif, and possibly his [[BlowYouAway actual power]], though the story hasn't been very clear on that yet.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Exactly what his origin was like is unknown. What is known is about six years prior to the start of the series, he and his revolutionaries were just starting out and raising trouble. Current time, Dragon is one of the most feared men in the world.
* GenerationXerox: Zig-zagged. [[spoiler: Luffy]] looks and acts mostly like the previous Pirate King; however, Ivankov notes the willpower, boundless determination, and likely his inhuman strength that [[spoiler:Luffy]] is known for all come from Dragon. It seems to be that [[spoiler:Dragon generally acts much colder and more seriously than Luffy; his ever present smile seems more like a satisfied smirk than his son's goofy grin.]]
* InformedAttribute: Is said to be the most dangerous man alive, but suffers from lack of screen time. Thus, any impact his revolution has is mostly informed. [[spoiler: Until recently, when the Revolutionaries have made an appearance in the Straw Hats' journey while they mess things up in Dressrosa]].
* LaResistance: The leader of one. As such he is the world's most wanted man. [[spoiler:His son, Luffy is shaping up to meet his standards as of recent events]].
* LukeIAmYourFather: The father of [[spoiler:Monkey D. Luffy]].
* MysteriousParent: Oh, so mysterious. Such much that [[spoiler:it's a shock both to fans and the main cast that Luffy, yes THAT Luffy, is his son!]]
* PapaWolf: [[spoiler:In Loguetown, he saved Luffy from Smoker in the nick of time. Plus, when Luffy was in Impel Down and telling Ivankov about Ace being his brother, Ivankov nearly flipped out and wondered how stupid the Marines were to be pissing off not just Whitebeard but Dragon as well. It implies angering the man directly is not a wise action and would avoid it unless no other choice]].
* ParentalAbandonment: Dragon's son [[spoiler: Luffy]] wasn't even aware he ''had'' a dad. Although on Dragon's part, being a revolutionary dedicated to the overthrow of the World Government does have drawbacks, [[ItsNotYouItsMe like not being able to see or associate yourself with your family]], for example. Especially if you're the world's most wanted man. And to be fair, Iva noted that he from his base would always stare towards the direction of [[spoiler: East Blue]], which would imply he's homesick. Iva also theorizes the news of Ace's execution would not only bring Whitebeard's attention, but Dragon as well, [[spoiler:though he turns out to be mistaken on Dragon's relation to Ace]].
* RebelLeader: Leader of Revolutionaries seeking to overthrow the current government.
* SinsOfOurFathers: [[spoiler:Don Chinjao made it quite clear that had he known Dragon was Garp's son, he would've made sure Luffy would've never been born. This is also implied to be the reason why Luffy was left in Garp's care -- considering how Ace turned out when he learned he was Gold Roger's son while still at a relatively young age, Luffy was lucky to not know the identity of his father until he was old enough not to care.]]
* SlasherSmile: Sports one in almost all his appearances.
* TattooedCrook: Has some nice ones on his face.
* TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized: The success of his ideas being spread around the world? Mostly owed to good-old-fashioned warfare. Then again against the corrupt World Government, not exactly a hard choice.
