World Government

    The Five Elder Stars 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/op_gorosei.png
Voiced by: Yasunori Masutani, Kenichi Ogata, Masato Hirano, Keiichi Sonobe, Keiichi Noda (JP), JB Edwards, Garrett Reeves, Cameron Smith, Randy Pearlman, Kurt Kleinmann (EN)

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.
  • Ambiguously Jewish: One of the members looks a bit like a Rabbi.
  • Ancient Conspiracy: Their actions in regards to Ohara's scholars definitely show that they have something to hide from the general population. There are several other hints throughout the series that support this being the case as well.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Subverted; according to the Dressrosa arc, they are not World Nobles. They're still evil, though.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: 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.
  • Badass Grandpa: As their collective name implies, they're all elders, and they're implied to be able to kick ass.
  • Bald of Evil: At least two of them.
  • Beard of Evil: At least two of them. Another one sports a Bald of Evil and a huge mustache.
  • The Dividual: 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.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Downplayed. They showed some remorse about killing Ohara's scholars, but that was it.
  • Evil Reactionary: Possibly, given how much they try to suppress knowledge of the "Void Century". This is a time in the world's history that has been deleted from public records; bits and pieces of what happened during this time have popped up as the series has gone on, suggesting that the world used to be an incredibly high-tech society, including hints at the existence of robot armies, space travel, and technological superweapons. Because they try to kill or silence anyone with knowledge of the Void Century (the reason Robin, an Adventurer Archaeologist who can read the Poneglyphs said knowledge is stored upon, had a bounty as early as age eight) it's very possible they or their predecessors were successful Evil reactionaries.
  • Evil Old Folks: They certainly have an ominous presence, and some of their decisions so far have been very questionable such as the genocide of an island of scholars who knew too much about the world's history.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Two of them have scars on their faces.
  • Greater Scope Villain: 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.
  • Knight Templar: Big time. Pretty much every decision they take is done mostly to keep order in the world.
  • The Man: They're collectively this for the world.
  • Minor Major Character: They have not yet been shown to do much, and have not been named, yet they rule over the world.
  • Mr. Exposition: 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.
  • Necessarily Evil: 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 give the order to destroy Ohara, they seem very unhappy that the situation came to that.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The one with the sword looks a lot like Gandhi. One sort of looks like Mikhail Gorbachev.
  • No Name Given: As stated in The Dividual entry, they're only known by their title of "Five Elder Stars".
  • The Omniscient Council of Vagueness: They really come off as this sometimes.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: All of them wear pretty simple and sharp business suits, except for the one in the white robe.
  • Slave to PR: In the end, all they really care about is maintaining the image of the World Government as a benevolent force for justice, rather than the corrupt oligarchy that it is. Examples of this include giving Smoker the credit for taking down Crocodile in Alabasta, and pretending that the Level Six convicts from Impel Down didn't escape, which is so bad that it causes Sengoku to resign as Fleet Admiral. Because of this mentality, they're incredibly upset when Fujitora announces that the World Government allowed Doflamingo's reign of terror over Dressrosa.
  • Tautological Templar: At least in the anime rendition of the Ohara Buster Call incident, they've convinced themselves that they're "righteous" people, so everything they do, no matter how unpleasant, or the cost, is itself "righteous." The victims of Ohara, and the thousands of women killed for the "crime" of possibly bearing Gol D. Roger's child would like to object.
  • Threat Backfire: They keep raising the bounties on the Straw Hats because of how much they want them dead. The Straw Hats in general, and Luffy in particular, tend to see it as an accomplishment. Some other pirates also see increasing bounties as a symbol of pride.
  • Treachery Cover Up: Tends to be their default reaction to something potentially embarrassing happening on the Government's watch:
    • Crocodile gets exposed trying to overthrow the King of Alabasta and defeated by the Straw Hats, a group of rookie pirates? Say that the highest ranking Marine present was really responsible to save face. Smoker is still pissed off about that.
    • Gekko Moriah gets beaten by the aforementioned rookie pirates? Send Bartholomew Kuma to Leave No Witnesses. Then order Doflamingo to kill Moriah for being weak enough to get his ass kicked, and claim that he was killed in the Whitebeard War to maintain the Seven Warlords reputation.
    • Blackbeard, the guy they chose to replace Crocodile in the Warlords, breaking out dozens of Level Six convicts from Impel Down? Pretend the whole thing never happened and not let the Marines issue bounties to track the escapees. Sengoku actually resigned because of that.
    • Averted in the Dressrosa arc, though that's because they didn't get the chance to institute a cover up. Most fans agree that Doflamingo's ties with the World Nobles would have allowed him to keep his Warlord status, but Fujitora publicly announced what happened to other countries before the Elders even learned about it. At this point the Elders were put in a lose-lose situation: either let Doflamingo walk free and lose what little reputation they had, or allow Doflamingo to be arrested, let the Straw Hats take the credit, and piss off the World Nobles. The Elders ultimately chose the latter.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: A nice way to describe them. They at least tried to maintain the world's Balance of Power, but they have extremely questionable means of doing so.

    World Nobles 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_4468.jpeg

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

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

Voiced by: Kenichi Ono (JP), Unknown (EN, 4Kids), Illich Guardiola (EN, Funi), Edson Matus (Latin-American Spanish)

Don Krieg's right-hand man. Befriended by Sanji.
  • Ambiguously Brown: He has both brown skin and thick lips for some reason. His origins are never explained as well.
  • Badass Normal: 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.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Sanji gave him food when he was starving to death. He was so grateful, he begged Krieg to spare him; just him.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: They seem to emphasize how dangerous he is.
  • The Dragon: He serves as this to Don Krieg.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: It turns out that he's stronger than Krieg; his intense loyalty to his captain just kept him from realizing it.
  • Dual Tonfas: His Weapon of Choice
  • Heel–Face Turn: After Sanji saved him from starving to death.
  • Long Bus Trip: He hasn't made another appearance in nearly 20 years, not even in cover stories where characters like Mr. 9 made reappearances.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Even if Krieg attempted to poison him, in the end he still shows his loyalty towards Krieg.
  • Red Baron: His epithet is "Demon Man".
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Both English dubs spell his name as "Ghin".
  • We Will Meet Again: Before he leaves the Baratie, he tells Sanji to tell Luffy that he wishes to see him on the Grand Line.

    Dorry and Brogy 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/image_3005.png
Dorry Voiced by: Daisuke Gori (JP), Bob Carter (EN, Funi)
Brogy Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (JP), Jonathan C. Osborne (EN, Funi)

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

They each have a bounty of 100,000,000 berries. They jointly hold one record for the oldest known active bounties, as they've both been wanted for over 100 years.
  • Battle Aura: 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, he is a giant after all.
  • Big Fun: Brogy, both figuratively and literally.
  • Forever War: 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.
  • Honor Before Reason: 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!
  • Horny Vikings: Their culture is based on the vikings.
  • Made of Iron: Dorry shrugged off an explosion from inside his stomach.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: They're part of the giants from the island of Elbaf.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guys: Elbaf giants are noted to be this, and they're no exception.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Dorry blue, Brogy red. It's even their epithets. Subverted though since their personalities are similar.
  • Signature Laugh: They each have a distinctive laugh.
    • Dorry: "Gegyagyagyagya!"
    • Brogy: "Gebabababababa!"
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Their names have been spelt "Dorey and Brogey" and loads of other variations.
  • Sword Beam/Razor Wind: HAKOKU!!!
    • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: It destroyed their weapons after using it. (Though it's only because their weapons were dulled and half-broken already).
  • Tears of Joy: Brogy, when it looks like he's finally won their decades-long duel. But it quickly turns to horror when he finds out that Dorry was fighting while injured.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: They are still best friends and actually quite chummy with one another when they aren't fighting.

     Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold

Sandersonia voiced by: Chiwa Saito (JP), Lindsay Seidel (EN)
Marigold voiced by: Kimiko Saito (JP), Julie Mayfield (EN)

Known as Sonia and Mari for short, they're Boa Hancock's little sisters, though "little" might not be the right word. They were slaves of the 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.

    Marguerite

Voiced by: Masumi Asano (JP), Whitney Rodgers (EN)

One of the Kuja tribe who happened to find Luffy after he landed in Amazon Lily, along with her friends Sweet Pea and Aphelandra. She forms the closest attachment to Luffy of the three, especially after he saves her in the arena trial. Joined the Kuja Pirates during the Time Skip.

    "Ghost Princess" Perona 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TS_Perona_2_4274.jpg
Voiced by: Kumiko Nishihara (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.
  • Annoying Laugh: "Horohorohorohoro!"
  • Astral Projection: One of her Devil Fruits powers is to separate her own spirit from her body, although this leaves said body vulnerable.
  • Bad Boss: She constantly tells her extremely loyal bodyguard Kumacy to stop talking because his voice isn't cute.
  • Big "SHUT UP!": To Kumacy whenever he speaks, demanding he remain silent. Unfortunately, this prevents him from letting her know about Brook's first appearance on Thriller Bark and that Usopp, Nami, and Chopper were hiding inside him.
  • Corner of Woe: Another of her powers, Negative Hollow, forces people into one.
  • Cute but Cacophonic: She's a cute girl, but her voice can get pretty high-pitched and loud.
  • Cute Ghost Girl: Subverted in that she's not actually a ghost, but is able to control ghosts. Although she can become one via astral projection
  • Cuteness Proximity: Has a great love for cute animals.
  • Dark Chick: 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 turned face.
  • Dark Action Girl/Dark Magical Girl: 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 Face Turn was based around finally warming up to Zoro simply due to time and proximity.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Both of her pre- and post-timeskip outfits follow lolita fashion, fitting her ghastly, gothic nature.
  • Emotion Bomb: The "Negative Hollow" is a "Despair" type.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Pre-timeskip.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Her interests are incredibly girly, but her speech patterns are incredibly masculine.
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: She's lonely and wears gothic lolita, and can use her Devil Fruit powers to create ghosts.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Thanks to Kuma, being alone and in need of company she befriends Zoro when he lands there too. And Post time skip, helps the Straw Hats escape.
  • High-Heel–Face Turn: 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).
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence: Her fight with Usopp is equal parts flirting with and throwing explosive ghosts at him.
  • Mad Bomber: She really enjoyed using her explosive Mini-Hollows in her fight with Usopp.
  • Man Child: Though she's in her twenties, she acts more like a preteen, being obsessed with cuteness and covering her room with pink. She also loves cute things and wants to rule over a nation of them.
  • Nice Hat: Post-timeskip.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Though not a Logia-user, her Devil Fruit allows her to project an intangible ghost that she can use her powers through.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She finds zombie stuffed animals adorable.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: 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.
  • Odd Friendship: With Zoro and Mihawk, who both couldn't be more different from her; however, it's Justified since she had nobody else to be with for those two years. As a cover story shows, she even chooses to go back with Mihawk for some time after Zoro leaves.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has an absolutely EPIC one during her fight with Usopp.
  • Older Than They Look: She's currently twenty-five years old. This trope is more so in play before the Time Skip though, where she's 23 but her manner of dress and bratty attitude make it easy to mistake her as a teenager. She's also only 5'2, and therefore one of the shortest humans in the series.
  • Parasol of Prettiness: You can even see it in the picture above.
  • Perky Goth: She's always a goth-esque character, but pre time-skip, her personality is more cheerful and her outfit features a lot of pink.
  • Red Baron: "Ghost Princess"
  • Regal Ringlets: Post time-skip her hair gets curled, making her looking more regal.
  • Superpower Lottery: 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?
  • Squishy Wizard: 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.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Perona's "Mini Hollow" attack which creates miniature ghost bombs that explode when she snaps her fingers.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Her Negative Hollows don't work if the target is already exceedingly negative.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She hates cockroaches (katsaridaphobia), a trait Usopp capitalized on during his fight against her.
  • Why Don't Ya Just Shoot Him?: 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.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is pink.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Pre time-skip, with striped stockings. Grade A.

    "Whirlpool Spider" Squard 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tvtropes19_5159.jpg
Voiced by: Seiji Sasaki (JP), Jason Kane (EN)

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.
  • The Atoner: After Whitebeard forgave him, he becomes this.
  • BFS: One of his weapons is a gargantuan katana, possibly a Zanmato.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Shouts at Whitebeard after Akainu tricked him into believing that the Old Man sold them all.
  • Dual Wielding: A standard katana and a oversized one. The latter is rarely used.
  • Face of a Thug: He looks quite bad, but is more like a Boisterous Bruiser.
  • Informed Ability: Despite being one of the New World Captains, he's not that impressive. Also the reasons behind his nickname are unknown...
  • The Lancer: Whitebeard seems to consider Squard this, since he refers to him to coordinate the movements of the allies.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Has this reaction after realizing he'd been tricked by Akainu.
  • Odd Friendship: With Ace. Ironic, considering that his father slaughtered Squard's old crew.
  • Red Baron: "Whirlpool Spider" (Oouzugumo). The reasons are unclear, except for a tattoo on his forehead.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Squard, Squad, or Squardo?

    "Poison Pink" Vinsmoke Reiju 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vinsmoke_reiju_manga_infobox.png

"Poison Pink" Reiju is the only daughter and oldest child of the Vinsmoke family, as well as Sanji's older sister.
  • Absolute Cleavage:
    • Reiju's Germa 66 outfit leaves everything from her cleavage down to her navel exposed.
    • Averted with her civilian outfit.
  • Anti-Villain: She's a member of the Germa 66, all right, a commander of an army infamous for their legendary evil, and from a family that is vile, they would regularly beat up the third son for showing 'weakness' and ultimately disown him. Reiju, however, never liked how Sanji was treated, yet was fearful of what could happen to her if she stood up for him, so she helped him in secret - ultimately helping him escape the Germa Kingdom when they were children. She also never liked committing the atrocities she had to in order to help her father Judge retake the North Blue, but the modifications made to her apparently meant that she could never directly rebel against him. It got to the point when Sanji informed her of Big Mom's plot to kill the Vinsmokes for their cloning technology, Reiju implored Sanji to leave the island as to not share their fate, believing that this is her and her family's just deserts and that the world be better off without them.
  • The Atoner: Becomes this when she finds out Big Mom's plan to murder her and her family. Rather than try and escape the island, she simply resigns herself to her fate, deciding that all of them deserve to die anyway for the atrocities they've committed as members of Germa 66.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: When Sanji returns to Germa, he shows Reiju the cold shoulder. Reiju in turn keeps telling Sanji that she is not on his side and that she wouldn't help him. When she treats his wounds after his fight with Judge, she also uses the opportunity to put explosive bracelets on him, to force him to go through with the marriage. Yet she never participated in bullying him, like his brothers did, as she was scared that she would be their next target if she stood up to them. She also privately patched Sanji up whenever his brothers brutally beat him and ultimately helped Sanji flee from his hellish life in Germa, tearfully telling him to not come back. When Sanji learns of Big Mom's plans to kill the Vinsmokes, he immediately tells Reiju, who was given Fake Memories and Laser-Guided Amnesia by Pudding. He makes it clear that he doesn't give a damn about his father or his brothers — the only one he doesn't want dead is Reiju, but she urges him to flee with his friends and leave her behind. And the explosive bracelets she put on him? They're duds. She switched them out before she put them on Sanji.
  • Badass Cape: While all of her family members (sans Sanji) have capes, hers is unique because it resembles the wings of a butterfly.
  • Badass Princess: She is a member of the Vinsmoke family, a royal family of assassins, and fights just as well as her brothers. Her debut consisted of her sending Yonji into the ocean with one kick, and saving Luffy by consuming a deadly poison that was killing him with no side-effects afterwards.
  • Bait the Dog: Inverted. You'd think, her just laughing at Sanji when he was bullied by her brothers would make her unsympathetic. And you wouldn't be wrong... except when it's revealed that she only did so because she was afraid of getting bullied herself if she actually steps in to stop, and she does tend to Sanji's wounds in secret. She's also Sanji's only sibling that has enough empathy.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: Double-subverted. At first you'd think she's bad as her relatives just by her acting incredibly snobbish and laughing at Sanji's childhood bullying, but she did save Luffy from a fatal poison as thanks for looking after her brother. Then it's revealed that she's the only one besides Sanji who inherited their dead mother's kindness. She genuinely cares for Sanji and is pretty disgusted by her father and other brothers' Jerkass behavior, but she fears being abused herself, so she puts on a carefully-crafted facade so they wouldn't know how she truly feels.
  • Beneath the Mask: She appears to fully support the Germa's ambitions and doesn't care about Sanji, laughing at his misery, but in truth she is disgusted by her other brothers' behavior and Lack of Empathy, and thinks that her family (sans Sanji) deserves to die, as they are nothing but murderers that the world doesn't need.
  • Big Brother Bully: "Sister" in Reiju's case; while she didn't have any direct participation in Sanji's childhood bullying at the hands of her brothers, she was perfectly willing to turn a blind eye whenever it happened. Subverted however in that it's only true because she actually genuinely cares for Sanji, but she's forced to laugh along with her other brothers to avoid being bullied by them.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Eventually gets hers pressed very, very hard by Sanji's suffering under her father, and she helps him escape while tearfully telling him to find people who will love him. As an adult, she demands prompt medical attention for her brother after Niji, the scumbag that he is, uses blackmail to beat Sanji into submission, and tends to him in an extremely caring manner.
  • Bystander Syndrome: As a kid, while she never participated in bullying Sanji, she would stand by the sidelines and laugh alongside her brothers. Until she couldn't take it anymore and helped him escape, tearfully telling him to never go back and that he'll definitely find people who will treat him the way he deserves.
  • Color Motif: Pink, if her epithet is to go by.
  • Cool Big Sis: Reiju is the nicest of the Vinsmokes, capable of showing at least some capacity of empathy, and would tend to Sanji's wounds whenever he was beaten up by his brothers. Though she never tried to defend Sanji in their childhood, it was later justified with her fear of being abused herself, and furthermore, she helped him to finally escape the Germa Kingdom.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her deceased mother Sora, who opposed Judge's plans, secretly took a drug that reversed his alterations to save her sons from becoming his weapons but also slowly killing her, with Sanji being the only one who was saved. Reiju's childhood was spent training to become a Germa commander, but because Sanji failed to catch up and showed kindness, her other brothers Ichiji, Yonji, and Niji viciously bullied him, while Judge dismissed him as a "failure" who doesn't deserve to live. Reiju hated her family's abuse of Sanji, but she feared being mistreated as well if she sided with him openly, so she can only help him in secret. Eventually she helped Sanji escape Germa, but she had to stay behind and commit more atrocities with her remaining family that made her feel more and more disgusted with herself - to the point where she expresses to Sanji in the present-day Totto Land arc her wish to be killed with the rest of the Vinsmokes by Big Mom because she sees herself as a war machine who will only continue to blight the world if she lives.
  • Death Seeker: Upon hearing the info from Sanji, Reiju doesn't plan to oppose Big Mom's plans to kill the entire Vinsmoke family and the Germa 66, stating that they are nothing but destroyers and murderers who deserve it. While Sanji couldn't care less about his father and his brothers, he doesn't want Reiju to die as well, to which she responds that she cannot disobey their father and that she deserves to die as well, as her hands are also dirty.
  • Emotion Suppression: A different case compared to her brothers. Ichiji, Niji and Yonji had their compassion and empathy outright removed, while they were inside their mother's womb. Reiju merely hides such emotions behind a smile. When she is alone or with Sanji, she doesn't hold back her tears.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Out of all the Vinsmoke children, Reiju is the hardest to read. While it seems she fully supports her family's ideals and goals, she also aided the Straw Hats by saving Luffy's life and seems to be the only member of her family to care for Sanji. This even extends to her childhood: while she laughed alongside her brothers at Sanji's weakness, she never directly participated in it and even patched Sanji up afterwards, claiming that she only laughs alongside them to avoid them bullying her as well. She's eventually not so enigmatic when it's revealed she really does care about him, even sincerely crying for him, and only allowed the bullying because she feared for her own well-being.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: The princess of the Germa 66, and the only good member of the Vinsmoke family along with Sanji.
  • Fake Memories: Pudding uses her Devil Fruit powers to alter Reiju's memories after she shoots her, making her believe that the gunshot wound in her leg came from a stray bullet fired by a random soldier. She also throws in some Laser-Guided Amnesia to make Reiju forget her evil nature as well as the Big Mom pirates' plan to kill the Vinsmokes. Thankfully, though, Sanji was eavesdropping on the whole thing and was able to tell her what really happened.
  • Family Theme Naming: Despite not being one of the quadruplets, she shares their number theme naming, only with the more feminine "ju" as a suffix rather than the masculine "ji".
  • Flight: She wears high-tech boots that allow her to do this.
  • Foil:
    • Can be seen as one to Nefeltari Vivi from Alabasta, as both are princesses. Vivi is a kind-hearted and selfless person who, while willing to defend her friends and allies, believes in using diplomatic means to resolve conflicts. Reiju is a Badass Princess who directly takes part in her battles and is a very competent fighter, but she is also snobbish, looking down on commoners and believing in Might Makes Right. It helps that Vivi's kingdom is based in a desert, while the Vinsmoke dynasty lives on an ocean kingdom made up of ships that's constantly moving. Reiju's actually not so evil, however.
    • As of Chapter 850, she becomes one to Charlotte Pudding. Both are children of royalty (Judge is a king; Big Mom is an Emperor) who grew up in different ways (Reiju was engineered from childhood to be a Tykebomb Super Soldier, while Pudding was excessively pampered), and both are close to Sanji (older sister and fiancee). Both rely on masks to hide their true character for different reasons; Reiju hides her compassion under snooty indifference and genuinely cared for Sanji, while Pudding is incredibly cruel and sadistic underneath her sweetness. Reiju was Sanji's one silver lining growing up in an abusive household, while Pudding played Sanji like a fiddle and used the marriage ploy as a means to get him to trust her, on Big Mom's orders, until the chance came to murder him and his entire family. It's made apparent once they are alone, with Pudding dropping the act while Reiju never loses her mask.
  • Forced into Evil: Though she retains her emotions and at least some capacity to rebel (such as the fact that the bracelets she put on Sanji were actually fakes), she apparently cannot fully disobey her father's orders thanks to the alterations he made to her mind.
  • Freudian Excuse: She acts cold and indifferent because when she was little, she saw her little brother Sanji be mercilessly bullied by his younger and older fraternal quadruplet brothers Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji for displaying kindness, while her father dismissed him as a "failure" who doesn't deserve to live. She fears the same thing happening to her if she lets her true colors show, so she puts on a carefully-crafted facade all the time.
  • Good All Along: It's revealed a few chapters after her introduction that she's actually much more compassionate than her father or brothers (other than Sanji), but she has to hide it from her family under a cold disposition. It's at least hinted in her introduction in that she willingly helps Luffy's poisoning problem simply because he is Sanji's friend, despite them being on different sides.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears a headband in her hair when not in her Germa 66 uniform.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She tells Sanji to forget about Germa and leave with his Straw Hat friends while she stays behind to be killed with the rest of her family by Big Mom because she thinks she doesn't deserve to live and so Sanji could be free.
  • Irony: She calls Sanji out for "daring to come back to the family". This is despite Sanji being unwillingly carried by Capone Bege.
  • Kiss of Life: Reiju sucked out the poison that harmed Luffy through his mouth, saving his life.
  • Lack of Empathy: Averted. While she has the same genetic modifications as the other siblings, unlike them (sans Sanji), she does feel sympathy and empathy for others.
  • Lecherous Licking: After sucking the poison out of Luffy's body, Reiju performs one of these, to the shock and embarrassment of Luffy's friends.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Enforced by Judge, who altered her mind with Lineage Factor surgeries so she'll become a warmonger like him. It wasn't completely successful; she has her deceased mother Sora's kindness, although she has to hide it to everyone except to her mom and Sanji. And like Sora, who saved Sanji from becoming a weapon for Judge, Reiju plans to stay and be killed along with her family by Big Mom so Sanji will be truly free from the family.
  • Loophole Abuse: Those explosive bracelets Judge had her put on Sanji to ensure his compliance with the Arranged Marriage to Pudding? He never explicitly specified if they should be actually working.
  • Mafia Princess: A literal one due to her family's royal status. While it looks like that Reiju is aware of her family's activities and wholly supports their ideals of Might Makes Right, in truth, she's shown to fear her brothers and father after seeing what they did to Sanji as kids and is pretty disgusted by their Lack of Empathy; all those smiles were actually a carefully crafted facade not to show her true feelings..
  • Meaningful Name: "Rei" means "zero" and she is born before her younger brothers, who are named after numbers 1 to 4.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: She's shown having endured one at the end of chapter 849, though the suspect is not revealed. After The Reveal in chapter 850, it's safe to conclude it was done at Pudding's order.
  • Not Hyperbole: Turns out, when she said that Yonji "doesn't have the slightest shred of humanity" in their debut, she meant it literally. Due to Judge's experiments, her brothers (sans Sanji) do not have the ability to feel compassion or empathy.
  • Numerical Theme Naming: As mentioned above, Reiju is named after the Japanese word for "zero". She is the original firstborn of the Vinsmoke family, and predates her younger fraternal quadruplet brothers who are named after numbers 1 to 4.
  • Outnumbered Sibling: She's the only girl in her family. All of her younger siblings are guys.
  • Parental Favoritism: Flashbacks revealed that she and her brother Sanji had most of their mother's attention when she was still alive, because they kept visiting her while she was ill whenever they were both able, and they still retained their compassion unlike their other brothers who had theirs outright surgically removed by Judge.
  • Pet the Dog: Subverted. She's the only one of her family concerned with Sanji's best interests. That being said, she puts her own spin on it and makes it clear it isn't a priority. Then it's double-subverted in Chapter 840, where it's revealed that she does care for Sanji, but she's too afraid of being abused as well to directly help him, so she's stuck with smiling and playing along.
    • In her first appearance, unlike Yonji, she is willing to help Luffy and saves him from poisoning, as he is Sanji's friend.
  • Pink Is Feminine: Her Germa raid suit is pink, and she's the only one of her family (besides Sanji and her dead mother) who still retains a capacity for empathy and a working moral compass.
  • Poisonous Person: Reiju is known as "Poison Pink". When Luffy almost died due to a poison so strong that his antibodies could barely keep him alive, Reiju sucked it right out with no ill effect.
  • Pretty Butterflies: Her Badass Cape is shaped like a butterfly.
  • Punch Clock Villain: She only listens to her father's orders because she has to, and in truth, she doesn't actually enjoy having to murder people and take their lands. When the opportunity comes up, she'd rather just let herself be killed than try to do anything to save herself.
  • Red Baron: Her epithet, "Poison Pink". She sucked out and consumed a poison that was killing Luffy with no bad side-effects.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pink hair, but despite being a member of Germa 66, she hated her family's atrocious actions and only supported them for fear of retribution. Only Sanji and her dead mother brought out her true character.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: Reiju wears an ascot, and her debut consisted of her drop-kicking her little brother Yonji several feet high into the air and saving Straw Hat Luffy from a deadly poison with a kiss.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: When she meets Luffy again in Big Mom's castle, she wears only a shirt and panties, but is not embarassed.
  • So Proud of You: Every time Sanji shows his kindness and compassion, Reiju is seen with a soft and sincere smile on her face. Eventually, as they pour their hearts out to each other during their Darkest Hour, Reiju admits that she never once saw him as a failure — rather, she saw him as proof that their mother's sacrifice was not in vain, and is immensely proud of the man he has become.
  • Stepford Smiler: Arguably her defining character trait. She didn't want to laugh at Sanji during his abuse but had to play along to avoid being a target herself, tending to his injuries only when they were alone. Eventually, in private, she cried for him.
  • Strong Family Resemblance:
    • She looks exactly like her brother Sanji if he was turned into a woman, and also shares his perverted tendencies and preference in kicking. By extension, she also bears a general resemblance to her other brothers- especially the first since he's a Long-Haired Pretty Boy.
    • She's also the spitting image of her late mother, except a bit fiercer-looking.
  • Super Soldier: All of the Vinsmoke children were genetically modified by Judge in order to exceed human limitations.
  • Super Strength: Part of her enhancement was to increase her strength tremendously, such that she can do an easy Barehanded Bar Bending to open Sanji's cell. She later manages to pull a running Luffy (himself a considerably strong guy) effortlessly into her room.
  • Token Good Teammate: She's the only Vinsmoke and Germa 66 commander who is capable of empathy, and the only one of Sanji's siblings who doesn't act like a complete dick. She's willing to acknowledge that Sanji now Took a Level in Badass instead of continuing to dismiss him as the weakling he once was as a child, and when Sanji stood up for the family cook, Cosette, she just smiled as if in admiration. Eventually, she is shown to genuinely care for Sanji and disapprove of her other siblings and their utter Lack of Empathy, even if circumstances don't allow her to help Sanji outright.
  • Tykebomb: Like all of her siblings, she was genetically modified to be significantly stronger and faster than a grown man when she was merely a child. On that same note, her father has also been training them to lead armies since they were kids. Like all of her siblings, Reiju also had her mind altered to make her obey her father's words, although this doesn't take away her compassion unlike what would happen later with her siblings other than Sanji.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Judge isn't Gonk by any means, but he is ugly and brutish-looking when compared to his beautiful daughter Reiju. Even his sons are hot as well.
  • Unusual Eyebrows: Shares the curly eyebrows with her quadruplet brothers, including Sanji.
  • Villain Respect: She was greatly impressed with how strong Sanji had gotten over the years while watching his duel with their father. She outright calls him a "beast". She's not actually a villain, though, and in fact she likes praising Sanji any time she could.
  • What You Are in the Dark: She secretly fixed up Sanji's wounds inflicted by their brothers' vicious bullying and abuse when they were children, instead of leaving him to die. This ultimately allowed Sanji to survive his horrendous childhood long enough to run away to East Blue. Which he did thanks to Reiju's help, as she broke him out and tearfully encouraged him to find people who'll treat him the way he deserves.
  • Women Are Wiser: She's "the girl" among the Vinsmoke children and the only one, aside of Sanji, who has a more or less working moral compass. Though, given Judge's "Lineage Factor" experiments on her siblings to make them amoral Super Soldiers, it's certainly not for a lack of trying.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: When Sanji learns from Reiju that his mother Sora died to save Sanji from becoming a Tykebomb with an utter Lack of Empathy by taking a drug that reversed Judge's Lineage Factor surgeries, he starts believing her death was his fault. Reiju tells him Sora did not regret her Heroic Sacrifice and saw Sanji's kindness as her greatest deed.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Invoked by her after rescuing Sanji from the dungeons; she directed him to a cruise ship and told him to never come back to the Germa Kingdom, under any circumstances, and find people who will give him the love and care his own family lacks. Sanji does, however, get pulled back to his home much later on.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair : She has pink hair to go with her epithet. It serves as a hint that she's actually a good-natured person despite her position.
