* CoolMask: Creator/EiichiroOda used the same design for Garp as he used for Luffy's unnamed grandfather in the ''[[Manga/OnePieceWanted Romance Dawn]]'' pilot stories, but didn't want readers to realize this too quickly. So he gave Garp a bulldog mask in his initial appearances. He wasn't revealed as Luffy's grandfather until Chapter 431 of the manga and Episode 313 of the anime.

Vice-Admiral Tsuru is a Marine known from the era of Gold Roger, that is famed for her brilliant tactical mind. She's rather soft-spoken and doesn't say much these days, but she continues to have a uniquely special importance in the Marines, besides Garp and Sengoku. She's rather considerate to the pain of her colleagues, as shown during Ace's execution; she told Garp that he's not to blame as Sengoku began a speech to reveal that Ace is Gold Roger's son. She has eaten the Wash-Wash Fruit (''Woshu Woshu no Mi''), which grants her the ability to literally hang people out to dry if they have a certain amount of evil in them.

Eventually with the help of Luffy he found the courage to pursue his dream of leaving her and becoming a Marine.

* CantCatchUp: While he has improved himself by a ''tremendous'' amount in a very short amount of time, Luffy already had an entire lifetime of fighting experience under his belt when he and Coby first met, and has only grown stronger since then, leading to their clash at Marineford to result in a CurbStompBattle on Coby's end.
