[[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), David Brimmer (EN, 4Kids), Sean Hennigan (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. 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 know 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: One of the more notable things about him to people that met him is that he was always smiling, even up to the point of his own death.
* 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.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Garp tells that he would wipe out the military forces of entire countries because they spoke ill of his crew.
* 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 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: 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).
** Ace, despite all the bitterness and resentment he had for his sire, ironically enough inherited many of his personality traits, [[spoiler:including his inability to back down from a fight, [[KilledOffForReal unfortunately.]]]]
* GoOutWithASmile: As expected of a "D." Not that he [[PerpetualSmiler isn't usually smiling to begin with]].
* 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.
* 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.
* LukeIAmYourFather: 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.
* PerpetualSmiler: The scenes in which he ''doesn't'' have a big toothy grin can be counted on one hand.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: Before he died he revealed that he had hidden his treasure, the eponymous One Piece, somewhere on he Grand Line, triggering the new age of piracy from people going to search for it.
* PosthumousCharacter: Being dead, all insights on his character are done through either second-hand information or flashbacks.
* SecretLegacy: The mysterious Will of D. that a number of characters possess. Apparently, he actually knew what it meant.
* 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: 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.

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: Well, Arrogant Swordswoman in any event. She was tougher than even most of the adults in her dojo, and not at all afraid to flaunt it.
* BadassAdorable: Don't be fooled by her young age and cute looks; she was stronger than most of the adults in her dojo.
* CoolSword: Her katana Wado Ichimonji. Zoro took it up after her death, and went on to develop his signature "three-sword" style with it.
* DroppedABridgeOnHer: [[DeathByFallingOver She dies offscreen after falling]] [[StaircaseTumble down a flight of stairs.]]
* 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 crippled (or as they put it, beaten up to where she couldn't fight again) 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''.
* LittleMissBadass: 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: She's dead before the series starts.
* RealityEnsues: As much of a badass she was, she was still human, and something mundane as falling down the stairs is lethal for her.
* TheRival: To young Zoro.
* StayInTheKitchen: This was about to be invoked on her by her father. After she dies, he recognizes it was a huge mistake.
* 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), Creator/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.
* ActionMom: The adoptive mother of Nami and Nojiko.
* {{Badass}}: She ''was'' a Marine.
** 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.
* DelinquentHair: "Girl Power". And cool too.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Shot in the head point blank by Arlong. In the anime, this is toned down by having her shot in the chest.
* FamousLastWords: "Nojiko! Nami! I love you!"
* FieryRedhead: Red haired with a temper to match. [[BerserkButton Just don't threaten her daughters]].
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: One of the many good characters seen with a cigarette.
* GoodParents: Unorthodox, true, but she tried to do right by her girls (including a time when she was so broke, she lived off of tangerines for a month just so Nami and Nojiko could have a more rounded diet).
* GoOutWithASmile: Before she's shot, she smiles at Nami and Nojiko and tells them that she loves them with a grin on her face.
* HeroicSacrifice: She gives up her own life so that her daughters can live.
* {{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}} Like mother, like adopted daughter.

[[folder:Dr. Hiluluk]]
-->"When does a man die? When he is hit by a bullet? No. When he suffers a disease? No. When he ate a soup made out of a poisonous mushroom? No! A man dies when he is forgotten! Even if I die, my dream will come true. The people's hearts will be cured!"

->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, 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. Hiluluk is a well intentioned quack who tries to heal people with frog livers.
* CoolOldGuy: In spades. He was the one who started Chopper's medical training, and who instilled in him his generous and kind spirit.
* 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: Stripped himself of all his clothing in the freezing cold to show the injured Chopper that he had nothing to conceal, he only wanted to help.
* GoOutWithASmile: He was smiling when he died.
* ImprobableHairstyle: It's shaped like a medical cross.
* IRegretNothing: His final words were that he lived a wonderful laugh and thanked Chopper for such a life.
* MadScientist: A little, and good-natured.
* NiceHat: Which he later gives to Chopper.
* PosthumousCharacter: He's dead by the time the series starts.
* ReformedCriminal: He used to be a master thief until he got ill and was cured by viewing cherry blossoms.
* SignatureLaugh: Eh eh eh! Chopper would mimic his laugh back then.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Kureha. She regarded him as a quack, but she still took Chopper in and taught him everything she knew.
* YourDaysAreNumbered: Suffered from a critical illness.

[[folder:Montblanc Noland]]
-> Voiced by: Creator/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. 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.
* AdaptationalWimp: In-universe. Norland was a tall, well-built GeniusBruiser. "Liar" Norland was a scrawny idiot with a goofy grin.
* {{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]].
* BadassNormal: He couldn't have stayed underwater for 30 minutes to find and kill a ''Sea King'' if he had a Devil Fruit, now could he?
* 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 rockslide'' which was blocking his legs. ''With ONE HAND!''.
%%* CulturedBadass
* 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.]]
* AFatherToHisMen: [[spoiler: Tragically his real crew wasn't allowed in the Square where he was executed]].
* HeroWithBadPublicity: He was a truly strong and courageous explorer who saved the Shandians from being wiped out by disease, as well as who knows how many other deeds. However, due to the City of Gold debacle, he's been painted as a fool and a liar throughout history, and has become the North Blue's analogue to the Boy Who Cried Wolf.
* 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: An amiable person who was kind to his crew, is willing to help the dwarves and becomes quick friends with the hot-tempered Calgara.
* NiceHat: Wears a large chestnut on his head.
* OddFriendship: Strikes one with Calgara
* PosthumousCharacter: He's dead before the series starts.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Calgara's red; he's calmer and wiser while Calgara is HotBlooded.
* WhatTheHellHero: Delivers a beautiful speech to Calgara about his "fear of the Gods".

Oliva manages to get back to the island and warn Clover. But the [=CP9=] reaches them regardless and the scholars are rounded up.

* ForYourOwnGood: Had threaten to take away Robin's scholar license after she reveals [[spoiler: she wants to study Polyglphs with him and the others.

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 encouraged Robin that she had friends out on the ocean.

* 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 islands like Elbaf.

->Voice by: Creator/YurikoYamaguchi (JP), Creator/StephanieYoung (EN, Funi)

As her name indicates, she's Robin's mother. 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. When the Buster Call commences, she orders Saul to take Robin off the island while she and the other scholar save what knowledge they can from the Tree of Knowledge. During which it's presumed she had died in the fire with the others.

* PosthumousCharacter: She's dead before the series starts.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Really the only difference between her and her daughter is the color of their hair and eyes.

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.
* {{Badass}}: The guy killed a '''dragon''', for Pete's sake! With ''[[OneHitKill one hit]]''.
* BackFromTheDead: Moria revives him using [[spoiler: Brook's shadow]].
* TheBrute: To Gecko Moria and Dr. Hogback.
* CanonImmigrant: He was originally from ''[[Manga/OnePieceWanted Monsters]]'', a one-shot story Oda wrote 2 years before he started ''One Piece''.
* 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.
* NationalWeapon: Kin'emon mentions that Ryuuma's Shuusui is Wano Country's national treasure.
* RazorWind[=/=]SwordBeam: He can do this post-mortem, including a rapidfire version in the anime.
* {{Samurai}}: What he was in life.
* TakeUpMySword: He willingly parts with Shuusui after losing to Zoro.
* TranquilFury: In ''Monsters'', he was absolutely ''enraged'' when he [[spoiler: learned the truth about the dragon incident and heard Flare breaking down in tears]].
* WorthyOpponent: Considers Zoro as such, saying Shuusui would be well-suited to him.
* YouAreAlreadyDead: He uses Brook's Hanauta Sanchou: Yahazugiri.

A mysterious young woman only seen in flashbacks. This is because she was Gold Roger's girlfriend/lover, as well as the mother of his child... Ace. Whom she also ''died'' for, holding him in her womb for ''twenty'' months to make sure the World Government wouldn't get at him. She ultimately passed away -- but not before entrusting Vice-Admiral Garp with the task of taking care of her child, which he did by taking him in as his adoptive grandson. Her full name is Portgas D. Rouge, and she is the first known female carrier of the D initial.
* DeathByChildbirth: She died giving birth to Ace.
* TheDeterminator: The only conceivable way she could've ''deliberately stayed pregnant for 20 months''.
* FlowerInHerHair: A red hibiscus flower to be exact.
* GoOutWithASmile: Dies smiling as she gives birth to Ace and entrusts him to Garp.
* LongestPregnancyEver: She was able to hold Ace in her womb for ''twenty months''.
* MamaBear: A pacifist example, but still.
* PluckyGirl: She wouldn't be able to hold Ace in her womb for that long if not for her pluck.
* PosthumousCharacter: She's dead by the time the series starts.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Ace takes a lot from his mom, and not just her name.
* WalkingSpoiler: It's pretty much impossible to talk about her in detail without spoiling a huge plot point in the story.

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

A legendary Fishman and leader of the Sun 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 Sun Pirates, a crew composed of former slaves and new fishmen alike. 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: Like many fishmen he's prejudiced towards humans, but he shows some belief that there are good humans out there, and the audience gets treated to his thoughts a number of times.
* DeathByIrony: A blood transfusion from a human could have saved him... but it was denied to him. [[spoiler: Though it turns out, that's just 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.
%%* IconicOutfit
* 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: He's dead before the series starts.
* 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".

[[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: Her Observation Haki worked somewhat differently; she can use it to sense someone's feelings.
* FriendToAllChildren: While she loved and was loved by most citizens in her kingdom, she especially seemed to care a lot about the children, spending a lot of time talking to them, benevolently disciplining them, and teaching them of the life on the surface, and insisting that they shouldn't grow up to hate humans like many of the adult fishmen and mermaids do. And as noted below, she was a very good mother to her own children.
* 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: She's dead before the series starts.
* 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.


[[folder: "Ancient Weapon" Poseidon]]

-> Voiced by: N/A

What was originally thought to be an ancient weapon of mass destruction turns out to actually be a mermaid princess from the void century who had the power to control Sea Kings.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: [[spoiler:Had the power to control Sea Kings and possibly destroy entire islands, just like Shirahoshi.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: He's dead before the series starts.
* WalkingSpoiler: And we haven't even seen [[spoiler:her]] yet!



->Voiced by: Creator/KoichiYamadera

Corazon, whose real name is Donquixote Rocinante, is Donquixote Doflamingo's younger brother who Trafalgar Law apparently holds some respect for. He died 13 years prior to the Dressrosa arc and for that Law decided to take revenge on Doflamingo.

He ate the Devil Fruit Nagi Nagi no Mi ("Nagi" means "silence"), which gives him abilities related to soundproofing.


* AlmightyJanitor: Played with. He has the relatively low rank of [[spoiler:Commander of the Marines]], although this is due to his long-term mission to [[spoiler:infiltrate and stop the Donquixote Pirates]], and rose above its ranks to the point he became Doffy's right-hand man during the time spent there. [[spoiler:Sengoku]] apparently found him to be very reliable, and he was at this mission for ''years'' before the pirate crew suspected a thing.
* AlmostDeadGuy: He stayed alive (See {{Determinator}} below) just long enough so [[spoiler:Law could escape aided by his devil fruit power.]]
* AttackHello: He threw Law out a window upon meeting him. [[spoiler: In an act to get him to leave the crew.]]
* BadassBaritone: He's given a deep, surprisingly smooth voice when he debuts in the anime. Still doesn't help with the inherent clumsiness, though.
* BadassAndChildDuo: He was this with Law. At first he [[spoiler:took Law away from his brother learning Law wasn't safe knowing he was a D]]. Then spent 6 months looking for [[spoiler:a cure to his disease]], and when that became hopeless he pulled off [[spoiler:stealing the Op Op Fruit]] so Law could live and made sure he [[spoiler:escaped from Doflamingo before dying.]]
* BadassLongcoat: Wore an apparently darker version of his brother's iconic feather coat. May or may not be this way due to him frequently burning it with cigarettes by accident.
* {{Bathos}}: He [[GoOutWithASmile goes out with a smile]] so that Law may remember him that way, but the smile is such a combination of goofy and NightmareFace that it horrifies Law, then leaves Law laughing afterwards. Law understood and appreciated the reason behind Corazon's smile, though.
* BerserkButton: Never call Law a monster in front of him. Ever. He outright used violence and threatened death against [[spoiler:the doctors and soldiers who treated Law like a monster]], going so far as to ''burn down the hospitals'' of the medical staff that refused to [[spoiler:even try to heal Law]].
* ButtMonkey: All sorts of misfortune seem to happen to this guy, from losing the capability of speech thanks to mental trauma to falling into pranks pulled by kids to '''setting himself on fire by accident'''. During the flashback of Law growing up during his time with the Donquixote Family, Corazon's ''always'' shown being a dope. He's just about the ''last'' person you'd expect to be Law's idol. Subverted, when it turns out he was faking being mute. The clumsiness is real though, despite his claims to the contrary.
* CainAndAbel:
** The Abel to Doflamingo's Cain. He even says that Doflamingo was born evil, and that he exists to keep him in check. However, he's the first of the Donquixote brothers to [[spoiler:betray the other.]]
*** On the other hand, Doflamingo [[spoiler:murdered their father]] right in front of Rocinante despite his pleas.
*** In the end, even after Doflamingo discovered his betrayal and made it clear he was going to execute him, [[spoiler:Rocinante pointed his Marine-issue gun back at Doflamingo, but could never bring it in himself to shoot his elder brother, no matter how horrible he was]].
* ChildHater: He's stated to be this when he's introduced in Law's flashback and [[WouldHurtAChild he shows it]]. It turns out he [[spoiler:deliberately invokes this image to drive children away from Doflamingo's gang.]]
* CoDragons: He used to be this with Pica, Diamante, and Trebol for Doflamingo.
* ComfortingComforter: Corazon puts a blanket over Law as he sleeps while he himself considers the compassion and sympathy that's driven him to go so far to help Law, who he barely knows.
* ConsummateLiar: It is revealed that he was [[spoiler:a Marine assigned to infiltrate the Donquixote Family]]. He lied a lot to his crewmates in general and his brother in particular, who saw him as a sworn member of the family, and even hid his Devil Fruit power that aided him in doing it. His last moments were him [[spoiler:deceiving the Family into believing Law escaped from them]].
** He continued lying to Law about [[spoiler:his relationship with the Marines]] up until his life was nearing its end. Only because he didn't want Law to hate him for being involved with the same Government that killed his country.
* CoveredWithScars: Due to being clumsy, but some of them might be battle scars. Others may be leftovers from his childhood.
* ChekhovsGunman: He originally appeared on the Chapter 691 color spread, the one that features [[spoiler:multiple Marines and ''One Piece Film Z''.]] He's the one that's covered by Nami's Clima-Tact in the lower section between Nami and Zoro.
* CruelToBeKind: Corazon beats up children [[spoiler:to scare them away from being pirates.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: First he was persecuted for being [[spoiler:a former World Noble]], then his mother died from illness, and then a mob caught up to him and his remaining family and [[spoiler:tortured all three at the stake]]. After ''that'', his older brother [[spoiler:murdered their father despite his pleas]]. It seems that the only decent event in his past was his [[spoiler:apparent adoption by Sengoku]].
* DeathbedConfession: Laying beaten by [[spoiler:the Donquixote family]], he admits himself [[spoiler:as a Marine]] and apologizes that he lied about it because he didn't want to be hated. The confession is actually for [[spoiler:Law who despised anyone associated with the World Government]].
* DefiantToTheEnd: Already on death's door and before the wrath of Doflamingo, he [[spoiler:declares himself a Marine]], boasts that he made Law eat the Op-Op Fruit, ruining Doflamingo's deal, and claims that [[spoiler:Law is beyond his reach (which was a lie to goad him into fighting the Marines while Law escapes under his nose)]]. And if that's not enough, [[DyingMomentOfAwesome he clings onto his life for as long as he could to help Law escape him]].
* DefusingTheTykeBomb: Corazon understood and showed compassion towards Law's tragedy, which turned Law away from Doflamingo's evil because he looked up towards Corazon instead, [[spoiler:the hero who saved him from his Amber Lead disease.]]
* {{Determinator}}: He did absolutely everything he could to save Law from Doflamingo. To the point he held on to his life after having been [[spoiler:shot multiple times by pirates, beaten horribly by Vergo, beaten again by the Donquixote Family and shot fatally by Doflamingo]], just so Law could escape safely aided by his Silent Devil Fruit power.
* DisproportionateRetribution: It's his way of treating kids. And yes, it DOES bite him in the ass [[spoiler:because young Law is unstable enough to try and kill him for it.]]
* DoomedMoralVictor: His life's goal was to keep his brother's madness in check and when he met Law, he only felt compassion for someone so tragic. Not only did he [[spoiler:save Law from his illness]], he kept Law from becoming just like his evil brother Doflamingo, with his last breath claiming [[spoiler:Law was free from him.]]
* DragonWithAnAgenda: He was actually [[spoiler:working undercover for the Marines]], and keeping tabs on the Donquixote Pirates.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: He uses his Devil Fruit to silence Law, then lies to Doflamingo's face that he escaped, ''while leaning against the chest he locked Law into''. After [[spoiler:Doflamingo fatally shoots him]], Corazon keeps himself alive through sheer willpower as long as possible, so that Law wouldn't be able to [[spoiler:make noise and alert the Donquixote family to his presence]] as they carried him to safety.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: When he first appears in Law's flashback, he trips upon on his own coat and then he smacks a young Baby 5 and Buffalo for laughing at him.
** And of course, tossing a young Law out of a window, nearly killing him.
* FacingTheBulletsOneLiner:
-->'''Corazon''': Just leave [Law] alone already! He is free!
* FightsLikeANormal: His powers are only used to disorient/confuse his opponents; he still fights like any normal human being.
* FinalSpeech: Delivered one to his brother to drive home that Law had earned his freedom from the evil mad pirate.
* FindTheCure: He spent about half of Law's remaining time trying to do this for him. The search ended when his brother found the Op Op Fruit, which at the time was on the hands of a random pirate crew; he managed to steal it from them.
* {{Foil}}
** Towards Vergo. Both of them held the title of "Corazon", the position of Doflamingo's most valued crew member. Rocinante is [[spoiler:a Marine infiltrating the Donquixote Family]]. Vergo is a pirate under Doflamingo infiltrating the Marines. Surprisingly they meet, both of them discovering the truth of each other with Vergo reacting with [[spoiler:violence and feelings of betrayal]].
** Towards his own brother. Doflamingo believes [[MiseryBuildsCharacter all the suffering he's experienced]] entitles him towards causing destruction, but Corazon (with shared experiences) grew up to become a [[spoiler:Marine following Moral Justice with the goal of stopping his brother's evil.]] Doflamingo sought to mold Trafalgar Law because of the boy's tragedy into his right hand man willing to be a self sacrifice, but Cora felt empathy for Law and wanted him to live his life free.
*** The overall relationship between Rocinante, Doflamingo, and Law serves as a dark mirror to Luffy's relationship with his own adoptive brothers. Both groups came from highly prominent lineages (The Will of D, World Nobles). While Luffy had two supportive brothers who were protective of of him and each other, Law had two diametrically opposed older brother figures. While [[spoiler: Sabo]] and Luffy felt immense guilt for the death of the their brother, the relationship between Law and his mentor figures all had a desire to kill the other at some point.
* ForceFeeding: Upon stealing the Ope Ope no mi, he had Law gulp it down against his will, despite Law admitting he wasn't prepared to become a Devil Fruit user. This saved his life of course.
* ForegoneConclusion: The big [[TheReveal reveal]] of his in Law's past was that his ultimate goal was to [[spoiler:end his evil older brother's madness]]. We find this out fifteen chapters ''after'' we find out that [[spoiler:Doflamingo [[CainAndAbel killed him]]...]]
* GlasgowGrin: He apparently sported one. It's actually makeup.
* GoOutWithASmile: With everything that Corazon has gone through to make Law live, and the subsequent outing of [[spoiler:his spy status]], he intended to die with a smile on his face, so that [[TearJerker Law would remember him this way]]. What a guy. After getting shot by [[spoiler:his brother]], holding out so Law can escape with his silent powers, Cora finally dies while smiling [[spoiler:thinking Law is free.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: Inside Birdcage, he made up his mind the only way to get Law out would be to fool his brother into believing Law already escaped, and after declaring Law was free from his grasp he was [[spoiler:killed by Doflamingo.]]
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Throughout their journey to search for [[spoiler:a cure for Law's disease]], he drags Law to several unkind and unprofessional doctors who do nothing but cruelly remind and reinforce Law's tragedy. Corazon actually realizes that what he's doing is wrong but he can't help but sympathize with Law's plight.
* InsaneForgiveness: Despite being stabbed though the chest by Law, he only felt compassion for someone who lost everything and was lashing out against the world because of it. It also counts as a shared experience because Corazon lost both his parents at a younger age himself.
* InSeriesNickname: "Cora-san" as an adult and "Roci" as a child.
* InTheHood: He wore a type of hat which gave off this appearance.
* {{Irony}}: He is endlessly rebuffed by [[spoiler:every doctor he comes to]] because they buy into the propaganda that [[spoiler:Law's lead poisoning is contagious]]. The brother he holds in such contempt was actually one of the few who knew the truth and actually wasn't afraid to [[spoiler:let Law join the crew]] because he didn't believe the rumors.
* JerkassFacade: The first sign that he's more than he seems was when he covered for Law after the boy stabbed him, a transgression that might result in Law being killed by Doflamingo. Upon learning [[spoiler:Law's full name]] he immediately warned the boy to stay away from Doflamingo; here it also reveals that his ChildHater thing was an act to keep kids away from his brother. And then he desperately tried to [[spoiler:find a doctor willing to treat Law's Amber Lead Syndrome]], even putting his [[spoiler:Marine mission]] on hold, and became increasingly furious at the so-called doctors refusing to [[spoiler:treat Law out of baseless fear]]. To top this off, there's the whole business of saving Law's life that made Law feel indebted to him so much that he still seeks revenge for his death 13 years later.
* TheKlutz:
** He was extremely clumsy to the point of [[SlapStick setting himself on fire]] when trying to light a cigarette and would also trip very often. On one occasion he tripped while setting himself on fire.
** Deconstructed once: Right after he [[spoiler:stole the Op Op Fruit from a group of pirates]], he slipped and fell down a hill, exposing himself to the enemies. [[RealityEnsues He ended up riddled with bullets for it]].
* LegacyCharacter: He's the second person in Doflamingo's crew to hold the position and name of "Corazon." The first was Vergo, and the third was intended by Doflamingo to be Law.
* LikeFatherLikeSon:
** It's hinted Corazon took it upon himself to look after Law the same way [[spoiler:Sengoku took him in]] after his father was murdered and he was left a crying orphan. Corazon genuinely understood what it was like for Law to lose his parents and carry on hurting so badly.
** Also with his biological father as well. Both are very kind-hearted, loving people but also dim-witted and naiive. Much like how his father underestimated how much people hated the Tenryuubito, Corazon also underestimated how much people would be afraid of Law's "contagious" disease. Also, how both end up being killed by Doflamingo.
* MadeOfIron: He survived getting stabbed by Law. Near the heart, at that. It took quite a lot to actually kill him - see RasputinianDeath below.
* MeaningfulName: Rocinante was the name of Don Quixote's horse in the original novel. Much like said horse, Corazon was very clumsy.
* TheMole: While it's clear that he was not wholly loyal to his brother, given all of the secrets he hid from him, it's still shocking to learn that he was actually [[spoiler:a ''Marine Commander'' who reported directly to Sengoku.]]
* MoralityPet: Implied as such to Law, even after his death. Law considered him to be the person dearest to him in his heart, and more or less admits that the reason why he has compassion and empathy despite his infamous cruelty is because of Corazon's influence. Subverted with Doflamingo; in spite of the fact that his brother genuinely cared for him, that didn't stop Doflamingo from murdering him, no matter how much it caused him despair to do so.
** MoralityChain: Subverted with Doflamingo, as the man was too self-centered to let the love of his family get in the way of his ambitions. Played straight with Law, as the only reason why Law isn't like Doflamingo is due to his UndyingLoyalty to Corazon and his desire to fulfill his wishes.
* MultitaskedConversation: When he revealed himself as [[spoiler:a Marine agent]] to Doflamingo, he said "Sorry for lying... I didn't want you to hate me, ya see..." Out of context, it seemed like it was aimed at Doffy, but this was done after he [[spoiler:knocked his head on the chest with Law inside, whom Corazon had lied to many times about not being a Marine.]]
* NiceGuy: He was genuinely broken-hearted to hear Law's tragic story and not only felt no ill will after being stabbed by him, but also traveled for six months to find the boy [[spoiler:a cure for his deadly disease]]. He also saw his older brother as a horrible monster and sought to take him down. Even pointing a gun at Doflamingo, he was unable to pull the trigger because he was too kind hearted.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: After his [[spoiler:secret of working with the Marines]] is known to Vergo, he gets beaten to within an inch of his life. This is done in ''front of a dying and crying Law who's begging for the beating to stop''. To add salt to the wound, Corazon was already riddled with bullets in his effort to get the Op Op Fruit for Law and Vergo shows no mercy, being in his fully induced muscled Haki form.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: In spite of his scatterbrained actions most of the time, he's able to fool everyone about his mutism, as well as his [[spoiler:double allegiance to the Marines]], for years. His clumsiness is real, though.
* OhCrap: His reaction to seeing [[spoiler:Vergo]].
* OneLastSmoke: Lights one up after taking a full beat down from the Doflamingo Family and his brother shows up to have their last talk.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His full name is actually Donquixote Rocinante however he is primarily referred to as Corazon.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: When he finds out [[spoiler:Law's a D]], he ''talks to him'', and tells him he should leave, as he isn't the type of person who should hang around Doflamingo. Law is utterly shocked by the fact that he can talk, and that he's being so serious.
* PapaWolf: He certainly was one towards Trafalgar Law, spending six months [[spoiler: tirelessly searching for a doctor who could treat Law.]] And whenever someone would make Law cry in front of him, [[spoiler: he smacked doctors and soldiers alike, threatening them with death and even ''burning down hospitals'' in order to punish the doctors that refused to treat Law's illness.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: He was taken in by [[spoiler:Sengoku]] after he lost both of his parents.
** And into adulthood, he became this for Law.
* PlayingCardMotifs: His name means "Heart" in Spanish and his design has several heart motifs. He was also the previous heart seat holder of Doflamingo's crew.
* PosthumousCharacter: He died 13 years prior to the Dressrosa arc.
** PlotTriggeringDeath: His death is a major part of the arc and the ultimate driving force behind the Pirate Alliance Saga. [[spoiler:Had he never died, Law probably would have never been a pirate, let alone one as infamous as he is now or one of Luffy's allies.]]
* QuieterThanSilence: His Devil Fruit ability is this, as it can effectively silence any and every sound Corazon doesn't want others to hear, like his voice, or any weapons he might use like a bazooka (and its explosion). He can even [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking silence his own farts]]. Whenever he uses his silent powers, the UnsoundEffect of "Shi~n" appears. He's essentially [[StealthPun silent but deadly]].
* RasputinianDeath: Shot dozens of times by Diez Barrel's crew, then beaten to a pulp first by [[spoiler:a Haki-enhanced Vergo]] and then by [[spoiler:the entire Donquixote Family]], ''then'' coup-de-graced by [[spoiler:Doflamingo himself]]. And he still manages to cling onto life for a while after that.
* SelfSacrificeScheme: Upon witnessing Doflamingo's Bird Cage, the only way to get Law out would be to fool his brother into believing Law had already escaped, all the while knowing full well his brother would [[spoiler:murder him for being a marine spy.]] From that moment on, he kept smiling so [[spoiler:Law would remember him that way.]]
* ShoutOut: His real name, Rocinante, is a reference to {{Literature/Don Quixote}}'s horse from the novel which his family's surname is based on.
* SiblingYinYang: The compassionate, goofy, quiet, and kind-hearted sibling to Doflamingo's cold, charismatic, talkative, and hateful sibling. Although he hides it for the sake of his mission. Also, they ''do'' share a few character traits; their affinity for sudden outbursts of violence and deceiving others, for example.
* SmokingIsCool: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] -- he lights up and manages to [[RevealShot look cool for a single panel]]... then he accidentally sets himself on fire.
* TheSpeechless: A traumatic experience in his past caused him to become mute. [[spoiler:But he's actually TheQuietOne.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Initial translations used Ro''c''inante, as the name is spelled in Literature/DonQuixote. However, in Chapter 764, it is instead spelled Rosinante (which is the phonetic spelling of the original name). Do note that Donquixote is also spelled "Donqui'''j'''ote" in the same panel, so it's more likely that it's an alias.
* SinisterShades: Like his older brother. He breaks out of the shades when he stops being sinister, however.
* StealthExpert: Due to his silencing powers, he's able to do soundless infiltrations.
* TearsOfJoy: Once he managed to steal the Ope Ope no mi from pirates, he shed tears at the thought of finally being able to save Law's life.
* WallSlump: Slumped down against the treasure chest Law was hidden in right before he died. Actually rather significant, as he slumped on the chest on purpose to [[spoiler:help keep Law concealed from Doflamingo and to secretly talk to Law.]]
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Law seems to think his power to nullify sound is useless, saying "You can't do shit with that power!" Course this is ''One Piece'' where [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower even the mostly supposedly useless power can be a force to be reckoned with]] and, sure enough, Corazon demonstrates that silence ''is'' golden; after all, how else would he have completely deceived Doflamingo with a silence charade for 4 years?
** His power allowed him to easily break-in a mansion and ambush a pirate crew. If not for his clumsiness, he would've left with a valuable treasure of theirs scot-free, with the crew none the wiser.
* WideEyedIdealist: Apparently a trait he inherited from his father. While searching for a cure for [[spoiler:Law's disease]], every time he encounters what could possibly be a solution, he gets overly optimistic, believing in the utmost professionalism and kindness of the doctors they visited. Unfortunately, [[RealityEnsues reality repeatedly showed]] that his over-enthusiastic faith was deeply misplaced, like for instance believing that a large expensive hospital means that its doctors are extremely kind and professional.
* WouldHurtAChild:
** He apparently had no qualms against hurting children such as [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood throwing them out of windows.]] Note that he did this to Law, who did absolutely nothing to warrant it -- he hadn't even ''met'' Corazon until that moment. Though Baby 5 and Buffalo more or less deserved it.
** Later {{Subverted|Trope}}. He's actually [[spoiler:TheMole for the Marines]] and his reason for doing that was to discourage kids from joining Doflamingo's crew (though obviously it didn't work for Baby 5, Buffalo, and Law). He's actually quite compassionate towards kids.
* YouCanTalk:
** After Law reveals his total full name - and the fact that [[spoiler:he is a D]] - Corazon drags him off... And tells him he isn't the type of person who should hang around Doflamingo if he really what he claims to be. Law is ''utterly shocked'' that Corazon is talking and being serious at the same time.
** This royally screws him over when in a moment of panic, he [[spoiler:blurts out Vergo's name]]. He ends up getting the crap beaten out of him.
* YouMonster: He does a subtler variant of this; he told Law that Doflamingo "isn't human" (even stating that Doffy was ''born'' evil) while recalling a memory from their terrible childhood. Doffy, his father, and Corazon (then going by his real name Rocinante) were [[spoiler:being tortured at the stake]] by an angry mob of commoners just because they used to [[spoiler:be World Nobles]]. Roci was screaming about the pain and wishing he could die, while his father was begging the mob to leave his children alone and to take out their hatred on him. Doflamingo, however, shouted out to the mob that no matter what they did to him, he would survive, and that when he got down, ''he would kill them all, one by one''. Even the mob was stunned.
* YouWouldntShootMe: He was unable to shoot [[spoiler:his brother]] during their final confrontation. Doflamingo believed he was too much like their father and Law knew he was too kind-hearted to pull the trigger.


! World Government

[[folder:The Five Elder Stars]]

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 [[spoiler: 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.
* 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: Again, implied.
* BaldOfEvil: At least two of them.
* BeardOfEvil: At least two of them. Another one sports a BaldOfEvil and a huge mustache.
* BiggerBad: 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.
* 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 [[spoiler: Ohara's scholars]], but that was it.
* EvilOldFolks: They certainly have an ominous presence, and some of their decisions so far have been '''very''' questionable such as [[spoiler: [[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.
* KnightTemplar: Big time. Pretty much every decision they take is done mostly to keep order in 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.
* 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: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 (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.
* 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: 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.


! Pirates

[[folder:"Demon Man" Gin]]
->Voiced by: Creator/KenichiOno (JP), Unknown (EN, 4Kids), Creator/IllichGuardiola (EN, Funi)

* AmbiguouslyBrown: He has both brown skin and thick lips for some reason. His origins are never explained as well.
* {{Badass}}: One of the best fighters in Krieg's crew.
* 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.
* CreepyShadowedUndereyes: They seem to emphasize how dangerous he is.
* TheDragon: To Don Krieg.
* DragonInChief: It turns out that he's [[spoiler:stronger than Krieg; his intense loyalty to his captain just kept him from realizing it.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Sanji gave him food when he was starving to death. He was so grateful, he begged Krieg to spare him; '''just''' him.
* DualTonfas: His WeaponOfChoice

->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.
* AnAxeToGrind: Brogy's weapon of choice.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: They're giants, so natch.
* {{Badass}}: They chop the heads off of '''dinosaurs!''' How is that anything but?

%%* 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
** 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).


[[folder: Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold]]
->Sandersonia voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito (JP)
->Marigold voiced by: Kimiko Saito (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 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.
* 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.
* 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: They fight as one against Luffy.
* {{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: Sonia's hair is green.


[[folder:"Ghost Princess" Perona]]
->Voiced by: Creator/KumikoNishihara (JP) Felecia Angelle (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: "Horohorhorohoro!"
* 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.
* 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.
* DaddysLittleVillain: While not blood related, her relationship to the rest of the Mysterious Four was rather BrattyTeenageDaughter like, especially with Absalom.
* 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: Post time-skip.
* EmotionBomb: The "Negative Hollow" is a "Despair" type.
* TheFakeCutie: Though she's at least a teenager and at most an adult, she acts like a pre-teen girl, being obsessed with cuteness and covering her room with pink. She also loves cute things and wants to rule over a nation of them.
* GirlishPigtails: Pre-timeskip.
* 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 [[spoiler: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.
* 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.
* OhCrap: Has an absolutely EPIC one during her fight with Usopp.
* ParasolOfPrettiness: You can even see it in the picture above.
* PerkyGoth: Pre time-skip.
* RedBaron: "Ghost Princess"
* RegalRinglets: Post time-skip.
* 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.
* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: The "tomboy" part is just barely there; her speech pattern in the original Japanese is distinctly masculine, but she's otherwise quite girly.
* 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.

[[folder:"Whirlpool Spider" Squard]]
->Voiced by: Seiji Sasaki (JP)

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.
* TheAtoner: After [[spoiler: 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.]]
* DualWielding: A standard katana and a oversized one. The latter is rarely used.
* 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.
* OddFriendship: With Ace, [[spoiler: ironic, considering that his father slaughtered Squard's old crew.]]
* RedBaron: "Whirlpool Spider" (''Oouzugumo''). The reasons are unclear, except for a tatoo on his forehead.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it Squard, Squad, or Squardo?

A young woman from the Goa Kingdom, who's been a friend of Luffy's ever since the latter's childhood.
* BabiesEverAfter: Had a child during the timeskip. We don't know the father yet, but WordOfGod implies we know him already.
* TheBartender: For the Syrup Village's bar.
* CoolBigSis: Sort of acted as one to Luffy in the past.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Luffy. The age gap isn't as big as other examples of the trope, but it is still there, as she was a young woman while he was still a child.
* NiceGirl: She's really kind and polite; in fact, the formely wild and rowdy Ace got his own polite demeanor from her.


->Voiced by: Creator/MarikoKouda (JP), Creator/TaraSands (EN, 4Kids), Creator/CarrieSavage (EN, Funi)

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...
* TheCassandra: The townsfolk think that Usopp's tall tales rubbed off on her, they don't believe her stories about Kuro, nor do they believe the wanted poster post-Enies Lobby with the massive bounty is Usopp, since he got it under his Sogeking alias.
* 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: She even puts up with Usopp's lies and just smiles at him whenever he does his antics.
* {{Ojou}}: Being the sole heir of her family's wealth, and has a calm and sweet disposition.
* SpoiledSweet: Despite her wealth, she's a very kind girl.
* 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.

A former pirate who, after a weird accident, got stuck in a treasure chest. He lives on an island populated with strange animals and guards the treasure on the top of a small hill.

[[folder: Chef "Red-Leg" Zeff]]
->Voiced by: Koji Yada (JP), Robert O'Gorman (EN, 4Kids), Grant James (EN, Funi)

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.
* {{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}}: He taught Sanji everything he knows about cooking and fighting.
* BadassAndChildDuo: Him and Sanji, in the flashback.
* BadassGrandpa: His advanced age hasn't slowed him down one bit.
* 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.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: His legs are powerful enough to destroy boulders and leave foot prints in steel.
* ChefOfIron: In the past he was both a pirate captain and a renowned cook.
* 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: He's a quirky old chef who turns out to be badass.
* 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.
* HandicappedBadass: The [[BlowYouAway wind]] from kicking his peg leg can stop flaming bullets. And he wasn't even trying hard.
* 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: For Sanji.
* RedBaron: He earned the moniker Red-Leg because of the blood from those he kicked got spilled on him.
* RetiredBadass: Once a feared pirate, now a chef exclusively.
* 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.]]


->Voiced by: Creator/WakanaYamazaki (JP), Tara Sands (EN, 4Kids), Creator/TiffanyGrant (EN, Funi)

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.
* CoolBigSis: Adoptive sis, but still.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Sorta. She got her tattoo so Nami wouldn't feel alone [[spoiler: after being "recruited" by Arlong]].
* HappilyAdopted: Had no qualms with Belle-Mere adopting her.
* SoleSurvivor: Along with Nami, who was a baby at the time, they're the only survivors from their initial hometown after a pirate attack.
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler:In the anime, for her sister. Fortunately, it only hit her shoulder, but it was enough for the villagers to want to fight back against Arlong's crew, leading to Nami's HeroicBSOD]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Light blue hair.


->Voiced by: Creator/KozoShioya (JP), Creator/MarcDiraison (EN, 4Kids), Bill Flynn (EN, Funi)

Mayor/sheriff of Cocoyashi.
* BadassMoustache: He has the brimmed mustache, common for middle-aged badass lawmen.
* CoolOldGuy: Repeat, he's the ''sheriff'' of Cocoyashi.
* 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.

Mostly to help Roger stay alive for one final journey.
* AnimeHair: Flower-shaped.

* RunningGag: He lampshades his own [[InvokedTrope running gag]] to stare people threateningly only to claim to be totally harmless in the next panel.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Already looked like a middle-aged man at 21 years old.



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.

** The Straw Hat Pirates later discover that an Island Whale's pod [[MachoMasochism all have similar scars on their foreheads]].

* 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.

* BareYourMidriff: Even at her age, she exposes her belly button.

* DrJerk: God help you if you try to defy her medical orders. It's mostly in the interest of her patients. Mostly.
* 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.

* OlderThanTheyLook: She's actually 139 (141 after timeskip) years [[InsistentTerminology young]].
* 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).

* PapaWolf: Came to Vivi's rescue when bandits tried to kidnap her.
* PervertDad[=/=]DirtyOldMan:
** He doesn't seem to mind peeping at Nami in the steambaths.

* 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.]]

* {{BFG}}: She wielded a bazooka during her CMOA.
* NiceGirl: She's a real sweetheart in both personality and looks.

As a result, she can tell over a great distance of several miles when people die. She fights with her people to be rid of Eneru and wants peace to come to Skypeia.
* CursedWithAwesome: She has Mantra potent enough to sense people dying. She lives in the same place as [[PsychoElectro Eneru]]. Do the math.

* TheEmpath: She was born with Mantra, and can sense people's emotions as well as when they are dying.

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

Kokoro's hyperactive, adventure-loving grandaughter and her pet rabbit who thinks he's a cat.
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Played with. Gonbe is a rabbit, but for some bizarre reason he acts and sounds like a cat.
* AnimeHair: Chimney's pigtails put Literature/PippiLongstocking's to shame.
* CreepyChild: Unintentionally so, but Chimney's constant smiling is quite unnerving.
* TheDitz: Until she was specifically told so, Chimney could not figure out that her grandmother [[spoiler:is a mermaid despite knowing that she had scales and a fish tail]].
* EmpathyPet: Gonbe mimics all of Chimney's movements and meows in sync with her dialogue.
* 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.

The mayor of Water 7 and former student of Tom. He united the separate shipyards into the Galley-La company which he heads. He was given the blueprint to the ancient warship by Tom and later passed it to Franky to keep it from the WG. He helped prep the Rocket Man and patched up Going Merry which was instrumental in the Straw Hats' escape from Enies Lobby. 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.
* HundredPercentAdorationRating: Harming or attempting to kill him is a good way to tick off not just Galley-La, but also just about all of Water 7.
* 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.
* ManChild: Part of his ObfuscatingStupidity is to act like this, when informed by his secretary he has to go to a long series of meetings he responded with "I don't wanna" and promptly stuck his finger in his nose. Of course, when there's nobody to trick, he's cool, calm and collected.
* TheNicknamer: He's the one who started calling Cutty Flam Franky.
* NonActionGuy: Unlike the rest of the Galley-La company, fighting isn't really his thing.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He kept undercover government agents at bay for ''years'' thanks to this.
* PermaStubble: Even after the TimeSkip he still keeps the stubble.
* ProperlyParanoid: He hands the blueprints off to Franky because he thinks the WG is on to him. He's right.
* SiblingYinYang: With Franky, though they were only foster siblings. Iceburg was the dutiful, respectful sibling while Franky was violent and disruptive.
* VerbalTic: Starts many of his sentences with "Nmaa".
** Becomes "Welllll" in the English dub of the anime.
* VetinariJobSecurity: The only reason why the Cipher Pol couldn't just break down his door. After Tom was arrested, he united the shipyards of Water-7 into a single corporation, the Galley-La, and became a provider to the World Government. As both a CEO and mayor of Water-7, he was just too important to kill off for the CP9.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Franky; ''"Look at us... we yell as soon as we look at each other. You jerk! I'm glad you're alive!"''

* CoolOldLady : Although she [[OlderThanTheyLook really doesn't look that old]].
* [[MrExposition Ms Exposition]]: Well, she does read a lot of papers.

* RetiredBadass: Was chased by "Garp the Hero" and retired forty years ago, but still has it in her to kick the ass of anyone who doesn't pay in full for their drinks.

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 Ace's execution, and warned him of the dangers that follow, and was surprised to see him survive both Impel Down ''and'' the Whitebeard War in two days.

* DestinationDefenestration: Dammit, [[{{Jerkass}} Hancock]].

* 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.

* StraightMan: To Hancock.
* VerbalTic: She only says "nyo" in her sentences.

->Voiced by: Creator/MinoruInaba (JP)

A Coelacanth Merman and the King of the Ryuugu Kingdom in Fishman Island.
* ApologizesALot: A running gag for him when he was first introduced.
* {{Badass}}: Though his age has caught up with him, he's still pretty powerful.
* BadassBeard: Just look at the thing! He also can be badass when he needs to.
* BadassGrandpa: He's gotten old and rusty, but he still packs a wallop when push comes to shove.
* CarpetOfVirility
* DistressedDude: Was almost executed by [[spoiler:Jones but rescued in Chapter 633.]]
* {{Gonk}}: He's very fat and misshapen. His sons also look similarly.
* TheGoodKing: He's a really kind king, and often a BigFun.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With his wife, Otohime.
* KamehameHadoken: Pulls off a [[MakingASplash water-ized version]] to knock back some of Hordy's troops.
* LargeAndInCharge: The guy is pretty huge, [[spoiler:a trait his daughter takes after]].
* NoMouth: It's hidden by his beard.
* OverprotectiveDad: King Neptune keeps his ''[[spoiler: gigantic]]'' daughter Shirahoshi locked up in a tower for ten years to keep her admirer's tokens of affection from reaching her. [[spoiler: Quite justified, since her admirer is a criminal StalkerWithACrush, and the 'tokens' are engraved weapons which target her when thrown thanks to his Devil Fruit power. Quite a few of them can be seen embedded in and around the doors leading to her room.]]
* 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.
* TroubledFetalPosition: [[spoiler:He did NOT take his wife's death well. It's actually one of the most disturbing scenes in the manga...]]
* UglyGuyHotWife: Queen Otohime was a noted beauty, whereas King Neptune is...not.
* VerbalTic: "Jamon".


->Voiced by: Creator/AkemiKanda (JP)

She is a sweet, young girl who is a 20 foot tall giant because of Caesar's experiments. When she learns the horrifying truth about the experiments, she helps the Straw Hats by taking the medicine candies away from her drug-induced crazed friends.
* BloodFromTheMouth: After eating the drug-filled candies to prevent her friends from eating them. The poor girl ended up ''writhing on the ground in agony'', spitting blood from her mouth.
* CuteGiant: She is absolutely adorable, and Caesar's experiments made her huge.
* GentleGiant: She is one of the nicest of the giant children.
* IllGirl: Caesar told her that she needed to stay because she and the other children were ill. It was a lie, and he is poisoning her and the others with the candy. She becomes even more ill after eating all of the remaining "candies" to prevent her friends from eating the damn things.
* TakingTheBullet: She willingly ate ''all'' of the remaining "candies," well over twenty if there was enough for each child to have one, to prevent her friends from eating them and becoming even more sick. This finally causes the remaining children to snap out of their UnstoppableRage.
* UnstoppableRage: Because of the effects of the candy [[ArcVillain Caesar Clown]] fed her and the other children. It's later subverted when she snapped out of it, unlike her friends. This is because she has somehow developed some kind of resistance to the NHC 10 drug, and possibly Chopper's sedative was keeping said drug in check.

[[folder: Gatz]]
->Voiced by: Taketora

The announcer and commentator of the Corrida Colosseum Tournament.

* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:He comes to Luffy's aid when he's exhausted and needing a few minutes to recover. He also brings the other half of the colosseum participants in tow to stall Doflamingo.]]
* CombatCommentator: His role in the Corrida Colosseum.
* MrExposition: He is the main responsible for explaining the backgrounds and fighting styles of the various participants.
* NonActionGuy: He's not a fighter, but he still [[spoiler: manages to assist Luffy against Doflamingo]].
* LargeHamAnnouncer: So much that it's not rare to see the Colosseum's staff workers covering their ears when near him.
* RousingSpeech: He does this in Chapter 789; [[spoiler:he announces that Lucy, or rather the Straw Hat Luffy, will defeat Doflamingo and there's still hope as long as people cheer for him.]]
* TearsOfJoy: He cries this when [[spoiler:he announces that Lucy finally wins against Doflamingo.]]

[[folder:Ricky (Riku Dold III)]]
->Voiced by: Creator/MasashiHirose (1st voice), Creator/BanjoGinga (2nd voice)

A mysterious gladiator who joined the Dressrosa tournament at Corrida Colosseum. Later he turns out to be the former King of Dressrosa in disguise.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: After the incident that Doflamingo caused, everybody, including the other countries, hated him and his bloodline. After discovering Doflamingo's atrocities, the Dressrosan people start trusting him again.
* 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.
* 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: Visibly looking old, but still manages to be a fierce fighter in the colosseum.
* BerserkerTears: 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.
* 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.
* RousingSpeech: Delivers one in ch. 785; he announced to his people that there's still hope that they can escape the nightmare that is coming down on them all, that they have a lot of great warriors to thank and Luffy in particular to put faith on, and to keep running and surviving with the last of their strengths.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: He invokes this once during the battle in Dressrosa, saying that since he (feels like he) is no longer endangered, he's going down from the plateau he's on, trying to be useful to his people. Even before that, he's the king who really cares about peace and welfare of his country. He's also a trained colosseum fighter.
* ShutUpHannibal: When Pica taunts him about how much of a bad king he was and how his pacifistic ways lead to his kingdom's downfall, he retaliates by saying that a country that is built on war and violence would have no future, and he would choose death rather than murdering people even if it may keep him alive. Although he does admit his own helplessness and says that he's not going to take the throne again.
* TearsOfJoy:
** He cried these when his granddaughter was born.
** In the present, he cries these again when [[spoiler:Doflamingo is defeated.]]
* TechnicalPacifist: Somewhat. He's okay with fighting as a sport in the colosseum (and he has done so himself), but he really values peace, and has worked so hard for it that his kingdom has never experienced war for a long time.

[[folder:Elizabello II]]
->Voiced by: Katsumi Chō

The king of Prodence Kingdom and is also one of the fighter who joined as a gladiator at the Corrida Colosseum to compete for the Mera Mera no Mi.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He has a single punch of whom can tear down a fortress.
* BadassCape: One commonly used for kings, pretty much.
* BoxingBattler: His fighting preference.
* ChargedAttack: His patented King Punch needs roughly an hour of charge time. He can also use it without it being fully charged yet, but it'll get proportionately weaker as a result.
* ChekhovsGun: At one point, when Zoro has difficulty fighting Pica, King Elizabello offers help with his King Punch, but Zoro tells him to save it for later. Later, when Pica in his gigantic stone form is walking towards King Riku, Elizabello thinks it's the right time and prepares to let it out... and Zoro still tells him to hold back a bit. [[spoiler:The King Punch does get used later... as cleanup for Pica's leftover stone body. (He does save everyone on the plateau by doing so, though.)]]
* CoolCrown: He wears a hoop crown.
* GlassCannon: His King Punch can absolutely wreck havoc in the field, but he has to prepare himself for an hour and he's largely helpless in that state. One barrier punch from Bartolomeo is all that's needed to knock him down, once his guards are taken down.
* LargeAndInCharge: He's pretty big and he's a king.
* MundaneUtility: Elizabello II considers [[spoiler:using his powerful punch to clean up the remains of Pica's massive stone body before they fell on those below]] to be this.
* OddFriendship: He's friends with King Riku Dold III despite him being a pacifist.
* OneHitKill: His speciality. It's said to be sufficient to bring down an ''Emperor'', but he can only use it once per hour and is largely helpless while he's building up the momentum to perform it. He can, however, fire it off early at the cost of reduced power.
* RedBaron: He's known as the ""The Fighting King".
* RedBoxingGloves: They're yellow boxing gloves.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: He enters the competition to win the Mera Mera no Mi.
* TopHeavyGuy:
* TheWorfBarrage: Elizabello's MegatonPunch [[spoiler: knocks out just about everyone in one shot, including Bellamy, who was being built up as a major threat]]. Everyone, that is, except for [[spoiler: Bartolomeo, whose force field [[NoSell no sells]] him before he promptly takes him out with little effort]].

[[folder:Princess Mansherry]]
->Voiced by: Creator/AiNonaka

The princess of the Tontatta, the Dwarf tribe that live on Green Bit, next to Dressrosa. She was captured by Doflamingo because of her healing and restoration abilities granted by the Heal-Heal Fruit (''Chiyu Chiyu no Mi''), which made her an important asset for Doflamingo's operations. She's also adorable even by dwarf standards.

* CutenessProximity: She's so cute that she manages to briefly induce this in her captives. [[spoiler: Even [[NotSoStoic Vice Admiral Tsuru]] and her crew isn't immune to her cuteness.]]
* DamselInDistress[=/=]LivingMacguffin: She spent most of the arc imprisoned by Doflamingo's forces and the Dwarves were on a mission to rescue her.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: She's blonde and definitely not as bad as Leo describes. Quite the opposite actually.
* HealingHands: She ate the Heal Heal Fruit, which allows her to heal any living thing instantly. Normally, her powers work on living things however they could also be used to restore non-living things as well albeit at the [[CastFromLifespan cost of her lifespan]].
* NiceGirl: Contrary to what Leo believes, she's actually a very kind and compassionate princess.
* SacrificialRevivalSpell: Somewhat: She can turn donated blood into dandelion-like balls of healing. [[spoiler:This also makes the donators becoming easily weakened if done too much on each person.]]
* SwissArmyTears: One way in which Mansherry's Heal-Heal Fruit powers can be applied. Once Giolla realizes this, she starts hurting Mansherry to invoke this trope on the defeated Doflamingo officers.
* {{Tsundere}}: Our first time meeting Mansherry in person, her personality doesn't match the "bitter, selfish, cruel, spoiled and ill-tempered" description she was given earlier. She's actually very sweet to the point of inducing CutenessProximity in villains and refuses to help Giolla revive the Officers. Then the first thing Leo says to her after catching her in a BridalCarry is she's gained weight, earning him a punch to the face and Kabu thinking how some things never change.
** The next chapter makes it clear she's a "Sweet" type, being deredere to everyone else only really showing her Tsuntsun side to Leo out of frustration.
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: Turns out [[spoiler:Mansherry wasn't imprisoned in the SMILE factory. Instead, she was in the royal palace.]]
