Animal Kingdom Pirates
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beasts_pirates_jolly_roger_6.png

The savage and powerful pirate crew led by Kaido, one of the Four Emperors. Befitting their name, most of their members have a wild, barbarian-like appearance and share their captain's violent and bloodthirsty attitude. They are currently occupying Wano Country after allying with shogun Kurozumi Orochi, having helped him take over the country and hunt down the remnants of the late daimyo Kozuki Oden's affiliates, and in exchange are allowed to use Wano as their base of operations and weapons factory.

The crew in total has about 20,000 members and using their connections in the Underworld, the Animal Kingdom Pirates have amassed a powerful army of over 500 Zoan Devil Fruit users, courtesy of their alliance with Warlord Donquixote Doflamingo and scientist Caesar Clown, who provided the crew with the artificial Zoan-type Devil Fruits known as SMILEs. They have also gained the allegiance of several powerful members of the Eleven Supernovas, namely X Drake, Basil Hawkins and Scratchman Apoo, and their crews. They are the main antagonists in the Zou Arc and one of the main antagonist groups in the Wano Country Arc.

After Luffy and the Straw Hats defeated both Donquixote Doflamingo and Caesar Clown, halting the production of SMILEs, the Animal Kingdom Pirates have sworn revenge on them for hampering their operations. After Kaido clashes with Big Mom during the Wano Arc, the Animal Kingdom Pirates form an alliance with the Big Mom Pirates to conquer the world.

    In General 
  • Animorphism: Fitting for a crew of pirates named the Animal Kingdom Pirates, many members are Zoan Devil Fruit users, with the Gifters and most Headliners being SMILE users while the Lead Performers and Tobi Roppo have been shown to use genuine Zoan Devil Fruits thus far.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Like other pirate crews and most organizations, the higher the rank a member of the Animal Kingdom Pirates is, the stronger they are. Interestingly, this is actually an official rule and philosophy within the crew’s ranking system, being described as a “meritocracy” by Who’s Who where strength and skill denotes authority. Even the Lead Performers rank spots can be claimed if you're strong enough to defeat them.
  • Dub Name Change: In the VIZ Media English translation of the manga, as well as the Funimation subtitles, they are known as the Animal Kingdom Pirates. Funimation formerly used the term "Beasts Pirates".
  • Dumb Muscle: A pretty consistent trait across Kaido's crew; while Drake and Hawkins are pretty sharp, most of the lower-ranking members are violent thugs who are dumb as bricks, and while Jack is clearly smarter than some of the absolute morons that Kaido has working for him, his pervasive Stupid Evil tendencies and wildly impulsive nature don't help his case. King is also brighter than the average Headliner or anyone below that, but he also has some proven Leeroy Jenkins tendencies that worked out solely due to sheer dumb luck. Queen is actually pretty smart, being able to create bullets with deadly viruses, but not very wise since he tries to challenge Big Mom when she accidentally hits his Berserk Button, even though he knows how strong she is. Lampshaded when Queen chews King out for starting shit with the Big Mom Pirates outside of Wano to begin with.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: A number of the stronger members of the Beast Pirates have eaten Ancient Zoan-type Devil Fruits that allow them to turn into prehistoric reptiles.
  • Gang of Hats: Many members of the crew wear horns or horned helmets on their heads, probably to emulate their captain, Kaido.
  • Klingon Promotion: If Kaido allows it, a Tobi Roppo can challenge an All Star and, in case of victory, he/she takes his place. It works with lower positions as well, however, since in the crew they all hate eachother, it means everyone is willing to eliminate a superior to take his place. Queen invokes this by expressing his intention of eliminating a Tobi Roppo and hands his/her position to whoever defeats Luffy.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": All of Jack's crew realize they're screwed when they see Zuneesha's trunk coming at them.
    • Likewise, when the staff of the Prison Mines see Big Mom arriving after she broke down the gates, they all start to panic.
  • Playing Card Motifs: The Lead Performers are all named after cards (Jack, Queen and King), while most Headliners share their names with different card games.
  • Rated M for Manly: The crew is chock full of muscular, horned, caped men who all turn into fearsome beasts. It especially stands out in comparison to fellow Emperor's Big Mom Pirates, who tend to dress in immaculate, if somewhat bizarre, fashion.
  • Stripperiffic: While Ginrummy (the first seen female member) is the most obvious example, it's pretty clear no one in the Animal Kingdom Pirates (other than Scotch, a cyborg) seems to wear much at all; not even Kaido himself has a shirt on.
  • Stupid Evil: Like Dumb Muscle, this is a common trait across the crew. While there certainly are intelligent, pragmatic members who don't regularly grab the Villain Ball or engage in short-sighted, petty acts of violence and destruction, the average mook in Kaido's employ is a vicious bully with zero impulse control and awful judgment who will smash things up and start fights with people above their weight class just because. And given the actions of the Lead Performers, it seems that this is even present among the upper echelons of the crew as well (just not as badly).
  • Superpower Russian Roulette: The powers given by the artificial SMILEs turn out to be this since, unlike genuine Devil Fruits, they are flawed and incomplete, their powers manifesting in completely random ways. Some, like Sheepshead or Speed, seem to have gotten lucky, getting functional powers while only giving them some animal features. Others, like Gazelleman, ended up getting animal abilities their bodies are not fully capable of handling, such as the stamina to run at high speeds. Then there's poor saps like Holdem and Dobon, who ended up a complete mess of a merge between human and animal forms. Furthermore, the fruits only have a 10% chance of granting one powers. The other 90% not only lose their ability to swim, but end up becoming Perpetual Smilers known as "Pleasures".
  • Theme Naming: Many high-ranking members of the crew are named after cards or card games of some kind, with the Lead Performers being named after the three highest card ranks. Their rank are a nod to terms associated with Rakugo theater.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: The majority of the Devil Fruit users on the crew, including most of the higher-ups, are all Zoan users, and the general theme of the low-level pirates is that they are all physically strong but lacking in brains. There's almost no indication of any Beast Pirate besides Hawkins and Apoo (who started their own crews elsewhere before joining) having an special ability that is related to creative usage of their powers, or even the Tobi Roppo like a few members of Big Mom's crew - just raw force. They've also got the World's Strongest Creature as their captain, and Jack has a bounty only a little lower than Charlotte Katakuri's, who's got the highest bounty in Big Mom's crew after Big Mom herself.

Leadership

    Kaido, "The King of the Beasts" 
Supreme Commander of the Animal Kingdom Pirates and one of the Four Emperors. See his entry in the Four Emperors page.

Lead Performers

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/three_all_stars.png
The three Lead Performers of the crew with their supreme commander

The top officers of the Animal Kingdom Pirates second only to Kaido in power, ran and authority in the crew. There are three who occupy this position and are collectively known as the "Three Calamities" due to the epithets for each of them. They reside in Onigashima with their captain.


  • The Ace: They are the highest-ranking and strongest officers in Kaido's crew.
  • Co-Dragons: They're Kaido's closest and strongest subordinates, although King and Queen appear to be a bigger threat than Jack, who doesn't talk back when he's scolded by them.
  • The Dreaded: Being the strongest subordinates to an Emperor, this isn't surprising. Jack is also feared because he's quite hard to reason with, while Queen's subordinates try their best not to anger him.
  • Dub Name Change: Several fan translations denoted them as "All-Stars". In the official VIZ Media English translation of the manga, they are called Lead Performers.
  • I Have Many Names: The Lead Performers are also known as the Three Calamities.
  • Large and in Charge: All of them are huge, dwarfing an average human, and are just below Kaido in the crew's hierarchy.
  • Prehistoric Monster: All three ate Ancient Zoan fruits that allow them to turn into prehistoric animals.
  • Red Baron: The Lead Performers, fittingly, have epithets that correspond with a type of disaster.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: All of them appear to not get along at best and seriously hate each other at worst. When they're introduced, Jack gives a Death Glare to both Queen and King while they throw stealth insults to each other and bully him. Their relation with the Tobi Roppo is also far from good as they treat with disdain Sasaki and Who's Who who openly ambition to replace them and as Queen openly states that he wants to eliminate one of the Tobi Roppo.
  • Theme Naming: All of them have taken names from the three highest ranks of playing cards, in order, King, Queen and Jack, which goes with the crew overall naming theme. The epithets also fit, each being a catastrophic event: droughts, plagues, and wildfires.

    King, "The Wildfire" 

King, "The Wildfire"

Voiced by: Makoto Tamura (JP)

Debut: Chapter 925 (Manga), Episode 918 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Dragon-Dragon Fruit, Model: Pteranodon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/king_anime_infobox.png
Click here to see his pteranodon form 

A Lead Performer who has eaten the Dragon-Dragon Fruit (Ryu Ryu no Mi), Model: Pteranodon, an Ancient Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a pteranodon. He's a stoic and pragmatic fighter, in contrast to most of the crewmembers who are boisterous dumb muscles.


  • Ambiguously Human: It's uncertain what's under all those wrappings, but according to Big Mom, he's not a mere human; he's something else thought extinct, and she wants it on her crew.
  • Batman Gambit: King summons the Tobiroppo under Kaido's name, fully aware that if they knew that the Lead Performer was the one calling them, some of them (Who's Who and Sasaki) would've just ignored him.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Against the Big Mom pirates, he just aims for the carps carrying the ship over the waterfall, which makes the entire ship (and Big Mom herself) fall down the waterfall and into the ocean.
  • Dark Is Evil: He wears entirely dark clothes and has dark wings reminiscent of a Fallen Angel. He's also one of Kaido's right-hand men who enjoys torturing others.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: His Devil Fruit is part of the Dragon-Dragon (Ryu Ryu) Devil Fruit family, owing to the fact that the Japanese word for "Dinosaur" is "Kyoryu", written with the characters for "Fearful" and "Dragon". Although technically not dinosaursnote , pterosaurs are heavily associated with them. If you stretch, it can further fit, as the Japanese for "Pterosaur" still contains the kanji for "dragon" note . His wings are also on fire which take the dragon's allusion Up to Eleven.
  • Dub Name Change: Several fan translations denote his epithet as "conflagration". He is called "the Wildfire" in the official VIZ English translation.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Thanks to his Devil Fruit he can transform into a Pteranodon, a winged reptile that is closely associated with dinosaurs.
  • Flight: By using his Devil Fruit transformation, allowing him to fly and attack the Big Mom Pirates' ship.
  • Foil: He is Charlotte Katakuri's counterpart in the Beast Pirates. They are both no-nonsense top enforcers of their respective crews, being the apparent second-strongest fighters behind their captains. Both of them appear to have penchant for black leather and wear clothing that seems to hide their features. Katakuri's scarf serves to hide his elongated mouth while what King is hiding remains to be seen, although it appears he is an entirely unseen species. A key difference is that Katakuri is an honorable Noble Demon while King appears to genuinely be a malicious thug.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: He has a pair of dark angelic wings, as well as massive pterosaur wings when he transforms, both of which emphasizes his alignment with an evil pirate.
  • Hellbent For Leather: Wears a dark leather uniform and a mask somewhat resembling a cross between steampunk and BDSM wear.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: His weapon is a large katana.
  • Last of His Kind: While it's difficult to tell because of his outfit, King is not a large human like Whitebeard or Big Mom, and the latter implies that his species is either rare or nearly extinct.
  • Magic Pants: A particularly extreme case since his form-fitting body suit and masks also fit his Pteranodon form, wing and beak included.
  • Nerves of Steel: In contrast to Queen, King keeps a cool head. When the Big Mom Pirates are almost at Wano's borders, he swoops down in his pteranodon form and, without any fanfare, boots the Queen Chanter back off the waterfall. Later in Big Mom's presence, King admits he's surprised she survived, but doesn't appear intimidated. He even has the guts to bluntly refuse her offer to join her. Both King and Jack give no objections to Kaido allowing the Tobiroppo to fight (and possibly replace) either of them.
  • Ptero Soarer: King is able to transform into a large Pteranodon with bat-like wings that can fly at great speeds.
  • Red Baron: He's also known as "the Wildfire". Fittingly, flames rise from his back.
  • Sadist: Loves torture, according to Queen, and his outfit appears to be a BDSM wear.
  • Shout-Out: His fiery Pteranodon transformation closely calls to mind Rodan, a Pteranodon-like Kaiju that lives in a volcano.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Evil vs. Evil example. Big Mom offers to forgive King for his attempt on her life if he joins her crew, although she implies immediately after that she's only offering because King may be the Last of His Kind. King refuses without hesitation.
  • Wreathed in Flames: Somewhat downplayed, but he does have a plume of fire rising from his back, fitting for his Red Baron. It seemingly grows in size when in Pteranodon form, giving him a somewhat flaming appearance.

Devil Fruit: Dragon-Dragon Fruit, Model: Brachiosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/queen_anime_infobox.jpg
Click here to see his brachiosaurus form 

"If I lost weight, I'd be too popular! So that's why I stay big! I may seem round, but it's all muscle! It's time to sing and dance!!!"

A Lead Performer who is an eccentric, dramatic man in charge of the Udon region of Wano Country. He has eaten the Dragon-Dragon Fruit (Ryu Ryu no Mi), Model: Brachiosaurus, an Ancient Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a brachiosaurus.

He has a bounty of 1,320,000,000 berries.


  • Agent Peacock: He might have all of the mannerisms of an okama, but he's still a pirate with a bounty of over one billion berries.
  • Artificial Limbs: His left arm is mechanical, which transforms into a forelimb when he changes into his brachiosaurus form.
  • As You Know: During the party at Onigashima, Queen makes a musical number during which he involves all of the members of the Animal Kingdom pirates and their current allies, acting basically as a quick recap to show the enemies of the arc and the hierarchy of Kaido's crew.
  • Badass Mustache: Of the Fu Manchu variety, and he's one of Kaido's strongest subordinates.
  • Bad Boss: He verbally abuses his men often. One of them also tells another with confidence that Queen would kill them if they were ruin his mood by telling him Komurasaki is dead. Still all appear to adore him, probably because it's better not to anger him, and because he entertains them organizing sumo matches between prisoners and guards.
  • Berserk Button: Eating, or even the suggestion of anyone else eating his oshiruko stocks makes him drop the affable part of his personality. To the point that he's willing to take on Big Mom - an Emperor and rival to Kaido himself (albeit amnesiac) simply because she strolled in thinking that there was some and she wanted it.
    Queen: Did you say "oshiruko"!?
    "O-Lin"/Big Mom: That's right! Hurry up and bring it to me! I was told if I came here, I'd be able to eat lots of oshiruko! That's why we traveled all this way!
    Queen: Don't mess with me! Who the hell told you that!?
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's positively comedic compared to King and Jack, but One Piece is established as a World of Badass, and you don't get a one billion bounty just by being silly.
  • Big Beautiful Man: Inverted. He claims that if he loses weight he would be too handsome, although he specifies his fat is actually muscle. An sbs does show Queen if he was slim and he wouldn't be very nice to the eyes.
  • Big Fun: While his billion+ bounty and position in the Animal Kingdom Pirates obviously gives away the fact that he's not a good guy, his overall demeanor is very jolly and energetic and he's a fun guy to be around as long as he's in a good mood. This is more glaring when compared to his fellow Lead Performers, who are stoic and pragmatic.
  • Camp Straight: Despite wearing lipstick and having mannerisms akin to that of an Okama, his Establishing Character Moment includes him talking about how beautiful Komurasaki is and saying that he and his men should visit the red-light district after work.
  • Carry a Big Stick: While battling the Akazaya Nine in the past, he is shown using a club covered in something, presumably poisonous, that is making it give off some kind of gas.
  • Cigar Chomper: He's smoking one at all times, even when in his Zoan form. Like most cigar smokers in the series, he's an antagonist.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: His big introduction shows how eccentric he is by performing a dance number with his men, asking the jail warden who summoned him to name their top three problems in backwards order and reacting with a Wild Take to all three of them.
  • Combat Pragmatist: After going through a Curb-Stomp Battle against Big Mom, he realizes pretty fast he's got no chance against her in a straight fight, and makes his next move a sucker punch with everything he's got.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He stands no chance against Big Mom, and she totally curbstomps him in two moves.
  • Determinator: Even after Big Mom thrashes him, he still manages to get back up to attempt to find a way to stop her, timing a divebomb attack in his Zoan form to headbutt her as hard as possible.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: The Devil Fruit Queen ate allows him to transform into a brachiosaurus and is classified under the Dragon-Dragon (Ryu Ryu) Fruit family, therefore making the dinosaur he turns into being classified as a dragon subspecies. This is so as the Japanese word for dinosaur, Kyoryu, is written with the characters for "Fearful" and "Dragon".
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: When Big Mom threatens to eat the oshiruko, Queen turns into a brachiosaurus and prepares to deal with her. Not even a page later, she's knocked his face in the pavement with a single punch.
  • Evil Laugh: His Signature Laugh, "Muhahaha".
  • Expy: Some of his eccentricities, his insistence on Stout Strength rather than being purely fat and especially his vertically-striped trousers make him resemble Obelix quite a bit.
  • Fat Bastard: An obese pirate who organizes deadly matches between prisoners and wardens as if they were silly games. Though he claims it's all muscle and that he would be too popular if he lost weight.
  • Fat Comic Relief: His round shape makes him much more goofy-looking than the other members of the crew, especially compared to Jack, whose design is filled with horns and the dark and leather-dressed King. Queen also has a very energetic and entertaining personality while the other Lead Performers are much more serious, and Queen gets to have many comical moments and exaggerated reactions.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's very joyful and full of life while gently explaining Luffy and Hyo the rules of the deadly sumo matches they're taking part in or the Sadistic Choice between losing the sumo match and dying or killing Eustass Kid and Killer. His joyful side becomes less prominent as he gets angrier because of the lack of oshiruko.
  • Fearless Fool: Pressing his Berserk Button turns Queen into one of this. Such as when he throws away his sense and self-preservation to pick a fight with Big Mom after she asks where the o-shiruko, Queen's favorite food, is.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: An evil one. He's designed the plague bullets that his underling uses. His mechanical arm is likely his own creation as well.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's a huge enough man in his human form, and his Zoan form is one of the largest in the series, but he's also very adept at creating weapons and other tech that serve the goals of the crew.
  • Gonk: He's not a nice man to look at, it doesn't help he's massively obese. His personality isn't much better either.
  • Hypocritical Humor: He bitches King out for needlessly starting trouble with the Big Mom Pirates, while failing to see any irony in the fact that he also needlessly started a fight with Big Mom that he barely survived. Furthermore, when Kaido and Big Mom are fighting on Onigashima, Queen calls his men cowards for wanting to run away from the island... right before he tries to find an excuse to return to Udon and leave Onigashima.
  • I Am Big Boned: Claims that his round body is all muscle, not fat.
  • Large Ham: When he arrives at the prison mines, Queen debuts with an energetic dance number while describing himself, stealing the attention from everyone else. During the party at Onigashima, Queen's acts as a musical announcer and is the center of attention of the party. The Tobi Roppo, especially Ulti, find Queen too loud and annoying.
  • Laughably Evil: In comparison to the other higher ups of an Emperor crew, the Animal Kingdom Pirates included, Queen is by far the most comedic, especially in contrast to fellow Lead Performers King and Jack.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Not to be upstaged by Jack, Queen sees no issue with going one on one with an Emperor when it comes to defend his stock of O-shiruko.
  • Life of the Party: During the yearly party at Onigashima, Queen basically becomes the vocalist and sings a musical number which involves all the members of the Animal Kingdom Pirates and their current allies.
  • Lost in Translation:
    • Queen has a tendency to interject the literal English word "Excite" into his sentences which in Japanese is pronounced as "Ekisaito". This is a reference to his epithet, "the Plague", as the Japanese word for plague is pronounced as "Ekisai". The pun is generally lost when his dialogue is translated into English. The Viz translation though retains the pun somewhat with Queen saying phrases such as "I'm plagued with excitement!".
    • The Japanese pun with the literal English word "Excite" and the Japanese word for plague (Ekisai) continues on with a creation of Queen's called "Excitement Bullets", specialized bullets that infect those shot with a contagious plague.
  • Made of Iron: Takes a heavy beating from Big Mom, including getting thrown against a cliff, and manages to get back on his feet with a new plan within a few minutes.
  • Mad Scientist: Of the Animal Kingdom Pirates. Queen delights in toying with technology, most commonly to create weapons and instruments of torture, like his plague bullets and bladed collars.
  • Master Poisoner: Along with creating mechanical weapons, Queen is a master at concoting infectious diseases. Some are used by the Headliners of the Udon mines.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: His retaliation on Big Mom just ends up restoring her memory though he lucks out when she suddenly falls asleep not long after the attack. He then has Big Mom bound by seastone chain, puts her on a ship and goes to personally deliver her to Kaido with the majority of his subordinates while leaving only a small contingent of his men in charge of the prison... except he didn't check to see if Luffy was alive or not. Soon as he leaves and has Udon locked down, does Luffy appear, now free of the beheading collar, and gets ready to run roughshod over the guards.
  • Ocular Gushers: Gets them when he cries upon learning, from a drunk Kaido, that Komurasaki is dead.
  • Oh, Crap!: Panics when he first sees Big Mom invading the prison, mostly because he thought her dead after King's attack. Also, when he realizes that Big Mom has seemingly shrugged off his carefully-prepared Brachio Bomber attack. He also joins his own men in the Mass "Oh, Crap!" when Big Mom and Kaido duel, splitting the sky in half.
  • Plaguemaster: As his epithet implies, Queen is an expert at weaponizing disease, including creating ammo that can inflict highly contagious viruses.
  • Properly Paranoid: The way he prepared to transport an unconscious Big Momnote  may be excessive for anyone else, but considering she was nearly able to No-Sell what is possibly his best move, it's a wise choice.
  • Red Baron: He's also known as "the Plague". Fittingly, he's shown to have created virulent bullets that can spread its payload to other victims.
  • Repulsive Ringmaster: Though not actually a circus, the way Queen runs his Udon Prison death fights as well as his character in general certainly qualifies him for this, particularly his infectious enthusiasm and skill at adding new stakes to his Sumo Inferno tournaments, as well as his somewhat clown-like apparel and physical appearance.
  • Sadistic Choice: Gives one to Luffy on the second day of the Inferno Sumo due to capturing Kidd and Kamazo aka Killer, Kidd's subordinate. He has the latter two tied up over a vat of water and dunking their head in with intent to drown them. Despite Luffy claiming they had nothing to do with him, Queen noticed him showing concern for the two and put Luffy in a position of letting them be submerged underwater if he continued to fight. Or get beaten to keep them alive but run the risk of Hyogoro and him being knocked out of the ring which would activate their collars and cut off their heads. Luckily Big Mom arriving manages to avert this and save Kidd and Kamazo.
  • Short Hair with Tail: If being bald qualifies as having short hair, as he has a queue hairstyle.
  • Sissy Villain: He wears lipstick and his mannerisms are similar to that of the okama. He's still one of Kaido's strongest subordinates.
  • Something We Forgot: He's so focused on dealing with Big Mom, he completely forgets about Luffy and Hyogoro who are about to cause a revolt. Once he has Big Mom bound in seastone and sails off to take her to Kaido with most of his men, he leaves only a handful of guards in charge of the prison. No sooner then he's gone, Luffy, now free of the beheading collar, as well as the seastone cuffs that Queen had took off of him during the punishment trials, appears before the guards and prepares to take them out.
  • Stealth Pun: A massive man named Queen with make up and okama mannerism who can transform into a creature classified as a Dragon. In other words, he's a Drag Queen.
  • Stout Strength: Claims that all his fat is actually muscle. Considering he is able to send Luffy tumbling by flinging his elongated arm away, it may even count for Super Strength. It even extends to this Devil Fruit Power - a brachiosaurus, which is very bulky but strong.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Despite his eccentricity, he's shocked by his subordinates' idiocy. When he's told that Luffy is in the process of escaping, and the guards aren't doing anything to catch due to greeting him, he yells at them to catch him immediately. Later on, he seems pretty amused that the rest of the Beast Pirates actually think that most of them have any chance against Luffy. Then he decides to grab the Idiot Ball himself when he opts to scrap with Big Mom, despite being told that it was a horrible idea and that he would be better off running.
  • Tattooed Crook: He's one of the highest-ranking underlings to one of the four most wanted pirates in the world, and has his name and his captain's jolly roger embedded on his right arm.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He seems to enjoy Wano's cuisine, Oshiruko in particular, as he's seen eating it while he watches the Sumo Inferno match and claims to have taken a huge amount of it with him to the prison; after learning Luffy and Hyogoro have eaten all of his Oshiruko, Queen's mood worsens. And once Big Mom starts threatening to eat it as well, he throws all self-preservation to the wind and attacks her. Since it's a typical dessert, it also counts as Sweet Tooth.
  • Use Your Head: His special attack, Brachio Bomber, consist in him dive-bombing an enemy from above head-first while in animal form. Since he has a longer and sturdier neck coupled with a thick skull, it's an incredible technique which manages to cure Big Mom of her amnesia.
  • Villain Respect: Actually shows an amused respect of Luffy's gusto and open defiance upon first meeting him, even offering to ask Kaido to personally pardon his crimes if he joins the Animal Kingdom Pirates.
  • Wild Take: He does three in a row, when Babanuki lists the problems in the prison mine, one for each of the problems. He has another one when he sees that Luffy and Hyo, overnight, ate through his entire Oshiruko reserve.
  • The Worf Effect: Big Mom utterly demolishes him in two hits, making it clear that she’s just as dangerous even with amnesia.

Jack, "The Drought"

Voiced by: Kenji Nomura (JP)

Age: 28

Debut: Chapter 801 (Manga), Episode 746 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Elephant-Elephant Fruit, Model: Mammoth

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jack_anime.png
Click here to see his mammoth form 

"Speak... peacefully? I refuse."
-Chapter 808

A giant grouper fish-man and the first of the Lead Performers to be introduced, he is a man known for his savagery and recklessness. He is in charge of the Kuri region of Wano Country. He has eaten the Elephant-Elephant Fruit (Zou Zou no Mi), Model: Mammoth, an Ancient Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a mammoth.

He has a bounty of 1,000,000,000 berries, notably the first bounty exceeding nine digits to be revealed in the series.


  • Adaptation Expansion: The anime shows his fight with Shutenmaru in greater detail, where Jack pushes back the samurai with Razor Winds and delivers multiple cuts to him before Kaido pops up.
  • Ambiguously Human: Jack might have horns and can apparently survive just fine at the bottom of the sea. All of which suggests he may have Fish-man blood. His entry in the sixth databook later confirmed he was a full-blooded Fish-man.
  • And I Must Scream: Because Jack is a fish-man, he is conscious underwater but, as a Devil Fruit user, is completely immobile. So, following his ships' attack on Zunesha, he is simply alive and paralyzed down there with no way out by himself. He is later rescued and reappears in Wano.
  • Animal Motif: Mammoths. Aside from his power, it also shows in the name and figurehead of his ship, and in his physical appearance.
  • Apparently Human Merfolk: He is enormous, has shark-like teeth and is shown very much alive on the ocean floor, but unlike most other Fish-men his colouration is quite human and he is comparatively quite human looking, save for his teeth which he normally keeps concealed.
  • Arc Villain: He is the main antagonist of the Zou Arc even though he does not come into contact with and fight the Straw Hat Pirates, and is one-shot by Zunisha.
  • Ax-Crazy: To an almost suicidal degree. He is a man who can't be reasoned with unless you want to be smashed by a mammoth trunk and mainly does all the damage he does to the Mink's kingdom because he enjoys destroying things.
  • Bad Boss: Subverted. His insatiable lust for violence leads him to order his crew into situations that they would have been better off avoiding and his subordinates have been put on edge by his explosive temper before, but they're also every bit as bloodthirsty and battle-crazed as he is and have no problem following him, even when the fight is one that he didn't need to start.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Despite his fearsome behavior during the Zou arc, when Jack returns to Wano he is shown to be mistreated and not respected by the other top members of his crew. He is forced to bear his captain Kaido's drunken episodes, and around his fellow Disasters, King and Queen, he can do little but mumble in response to their bullying.
  • Blood Knight: As he says himself, Jack loves to bring destruction. However, he doesn't like when the fight lasts too long.
  • Braids of Barbarism: He has two long strands of braided hair that dangle from his sides which shows how he's a person who can't be reasoned with. Said braids remains in his mammoth form.
  • Bullying a Dragon: He has a habit of picking incredibly difficult fights, even if he doesn't have to:
    • We first see him about to attack the prison convoy taking Doflamingo to prison, which was guarded by an Admiral, a former Fleet Admiral and several Vice Admirals. Predictably, he was beaten.
    • Before even that, he waged war on the Mink Tribe, even when they offered to let him peacefully search their homes for what he wanted. The Minks were so tough that eventually Jack had to use a gas weapon from Caesar Clown to break the stalemate.
    • Ultimately, this is how Jack meets his first complete defeat; he decides to kill Zunesha the elephant itself to wipe out the Minks. As it turns out, antagonizing an elephant so large that the people living on it are like ants is a really, really bad idea.
  • Characterization Marches On: During Zou, Jack is depicted as little more than a violent thug, whose defeat is the result of his own rashness but when he returns in Wano, he's suddenly a good deal more submissive and rational, and even seems to be somewhat of an Only Sane Man among the Animal Kingdom Pirates. It can simply be that he is more reasonable than a drunken Kaido, though, and there is also a chance that the whole Zou affair taught him a lot about being less impulsive and making better choices.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: A flashback shows him personally torturing a mink for information, and in the wake of his rampage there are dozens of torture racks set up across Zou.
  • Combat Pragmatist: What does he do when the Mink Tribe are tougher then he thought? Use one of Caesar's poison gas weapons on them.
  • Cool Sword: He wields two swords that are almost helical, similar to a mammoth's tusks, not unlike a weapon known as a shotel. The sheaths for these swords even look like tusks at first glance. He uses these swords to lop off Cat Viper's arm and Dogstorm's leg while he's torturing them.
  • Cruel Elephant: Jack is a vicious, cruel and short-tempered brute with a mammoth transformation, and is also notorious for being completely impossible to reason or bargain with.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Jack might be a man with a billion bounty on his head, but there is not much he can do against an island sized elephant, it ends with Zunisha sinking his entire fleet with a single trunk swing.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Towards his crew members, such as calling his lookout a dumbass for pointing out the blatantly obvious fact that a several mile high elephant is in view.
  • Determinator: Jack cannot be reasoned with. At all. When he sets a goal, there is no amount of convincing or unforeseen factors that's going to keep him from doing what he sets out to do. In fact, merely attempting to bargain with Jack seems to infuriate him.
  • The Dreaded: Jack is renowned for his brutality, ruthlessness, complete unwillingness to bargain or compromise, and the absolutely incredible amount of destruction that follows him.
  • Dual Wielding: Jack fights with two curved swords, similar to mammoth tusks, and can fight on par with Duke Dogstrom and Catviper while the latter two are able to sleep between every round, and Shutenmaru, one of Wano's strongest samurai.
  • Family-Unfriendly Violence: Jack is mercilessly violent and absolutely savages the Mink civilization on Zou to the point of bringing it to near total oblivion. After sending waves of men to level the city, he uses a chemical weapon to incapacitate the remaining fighters before having the mink leaders dragged out to a public square, where they're crucified and dismembered for information.
  • Fisher King: When Luffy and Zoro come to Kuri, they find a barren wasteland of dead land and the long dried carcasses of animals. Some time later it is revealed that Jack rules over Kuri. Considering his title as "The Drought", as well as his actions in Zou, this makes the horrible state of Kuri understandable.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He is notoriously ill-tempered and quick to anger and extremely prone to violence.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: This was the only reason why he failed to bail Doflamingo out; it doesn't matter how powerful you are, taking on an Admiral, an ex-Fleet Admiral, and three Vice Admirals at the same time is something that only a small handful of people in the One Piece world can do with anything resembling a reasonable expectation of success. He didn't have one and didn't care, and the results were very predictable.
    • We didn't know it at the time, but his assault on Zunesha was also this. One-billion berry bounty or not, what's one man and his grunt soldiers to a colossal, island-sized elephant dropping the full weight of its trunk on them at once?
  • Horns Of Villain: He possesses a set of horns akin to Kaido's making clear he's associated with him, although it is not clear if they're genuine or fake.
  • Insane Equals Violent: The two words that people have consistently used to describe Jack are ‘insane’ and ‘monster’.
  • The Juggernaut: Monstrously powerful and durable and possesses seemingly inexhaustible stamina. His patience is exhaustible, though — which is what the Minks are trying to exploit. He can be stopped (as the results of his fight with the fleet escorting Doflamingo demonstrated), but the fact that it takes two Admiral-level fighters and three Vice Admirals to whoop his ass says volumes about how inexorable the man truly is.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Inverted. In his human form, he wears a mask that covers the bottom half of his face which resembles such a jaw but he's far from just.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After returning to Zou and trying to kill Zunisha, Jack and his fleet are sunk by the same elephant they tried to kill when Momonosuke orders the giant elephant to attack.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: His response to learning that the fleet escorting Doflamingo to Impel Down has Fujitora and Sengoku (among others) in its ranks? Umbrage at the mere thought of someone thinking that that would be enough to deter him followed by a headlong charge towards the fleet. Predictably, he loses.
  • Made of Iron: Jack fights one-on-one for FIVE days straight against the two strongest warriors (and the rulers) of the Mink Tribe — one of which Luffy himself praises for his strength— who alternate every 12 hours to keep themselves fresh in their fight. Eventually, Jack calls in a poison gas attack not because he was in any danger of being defeated, but because he was simply losing his patience. His reappearance in the present shows that it takes no less than an Admiral-level opponent to even injure him, and while he clearly received one hell of a beating and isn't in great shape, he is also not crippled by any means. Even after having his fleet pulverised by Zunisha, he is shown at the bottom of the sea — paralysed, but still alive!
  • Mad Eye: Jack has bloodshot eyes with tiny irises, even when in mammoth form, giving a visual clue that he's not someone who can be reasoned with. The anime adds a bit of a twitch to them at times.
  • Nerves of Steel: When informed that the prison ship they're after has an admiral and ex-fleet admiral on it, he almost seems insulted at the thought that it would make him change his plans to attack it. It doesn't end well for him...
  • Never Found the Body: Wanda mentions that his obituary is in the paper saying he's been defeated during his raid on Doflamingo's prison ship. However, since the body is never found, Wanda believes he is still alive. She is later proven right, as he later appears alive (though not in great shape), ripping said obituary.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: He may be incredibly impulsive and reckless, but he does not mess around. Give him what he wants when he wants it or he will make good on his threats.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: He wears nothing underneath his fur coat, showcasing his massive upper body.
  • Offing the Annoyance: Being reasoned with is practically his Berserk Button, such that he'll quickly resort to violence when someone tries to talk him down.
    Jack: I didn't come here to talk.
  • Oh, Crap!: Along with a collective one with his crew when Zunisha, the elephant that carries Zou, turns to his fleet and rears it trunk up ready to strike them. Granted he doesn't panic like his crew does but he knows there is no way he's going to be able to fight that.
  • Only Sane Man: He undergoes some mild character development before he reappears in Wano. He is much more stable and acts with a calm and stable head throughout, something he hadn’t been much capable of beforehand.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Threatens to destroy an entire city. When his bluff is called, he does exactly that.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: When Kaidou shows up drunkenly flying over Okobore Town, Jack is greatly concerned about the danger he poses to the citizens... Because they're the workforce of the factories.
  • Red Baron: "The Drought". He's called such because he leaves the countries he razes in such a pitiful state that it seems like they went through a drought.
  • Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated: The newspapers reports his death in his clash against Issho, only for him to appear alive and incensed at his reported demise. He's definitely not in very good shape after it, but he did survive the clash with the admiral.
  • Sadist: Has admitted that he has no good reason for doing most of the destruction he does and pain he inflicts; he just really enjoys wanton destruction, mass murder, and brutally torturing captives.
  • Scary Teeth: When Zunesha smashes his ship, his mask breaks, revealing a set of shark-like teeth, a trait that hints at his status as a fish-man.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Spends a while at the bottom of the ocean, unable to move due to being a Devil Fruit user but apparently having no problem with breathing. He's eventually rescued off-screen and returned to Wano.
  • Sinister Schnoz: His mammoth form takes this trope up a notch, actually weaponizing his massive trunk.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Despite his awful temper and incredible penchant for violence, he tends to speak in an even, almost calm tone to his enemies. He even apologizes for his crew's mouthiness.
  • Spikes of Villainy: His fur coat is adorned with spikes, giving him a brutal appearance just like his personality.
  • Straight Man: Jack if far from intelligent or reasonable, but compared to his perpetually drunk captain he's far more rational and tries to prevent him from going into a drunken-induced destruction of a town.
  • Stupid Evil: Jack's insatiable bloodthirst and blind faith in his (admittedly impressive) strength lead him to make one terrible decision after another. Right off the bat, when he approaches the Minks demanding Raizo, their offers to help him in his search are met with swift, immediate violence. The possibility that the Minks were hiding Raizo and lying to him hadn't even been suggested yet.
  • Super Drowning Skills: Standard for a Devil Fruit user. Although this only seems to affect his swimming, as he survives being stuck on the bottom of the ocean, due to being a Fishman, and is later seen in Wano.
  • Superpower Lottery: His Devil Fruit is an Ancient Zoan, which is a very rare class of Devil Fruits. Indeed, the ability to become a large mammoth is impressive.
  • Talk to the Fist: As an old monkey mink is calmly telling Jack that he needs to hear the minks out, Jack responds by smashing his trunk into the Mink crowd before he can even finish his sentence and coldly says they didn't come to talk.
  • Tom the Dark Lord: An example of it not being Played for Laughs. Despite having an unassuming name, Jack, what we know about him so far paints him as an extremely vicious and ruthless man.
  • The Unfettered: Absolutely impossible to reason with and will stop at nothing and refuse no measure to accomplish his goals. He doesn't know or care what you want to tell him, he just wants to get his job done and doesn't really care about how he does it so long as he gets a chance to smash things and kill people.
  • The Unfought: In the Zou Arc, Luffy and the Straw Hats never actually fight him, as Zunesha curbstomps him and leaves him incapacitated in the ocean floor.
  • Victory by Endurance: His battle with the Mink tribe lasted for five days, and though they eventually wore down his crew, they were unable to contain Jack himself. This allowed him to use one of Caesar's Deadly Gas weapons, which won him the fight.
  • Villain Has a Point: While he inflicted a terrible torture on the minks, whether it was his instinct or just pure guessing, Jack was right that the Minks were hiding Raizo on the island and lying about their denying of seeing him.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Jack ate a Zoan Devil Fruit that can turn him into a massive mammoth.
  • Walking Wasteland: The explanation behind his epithet. Jack's sheer destructive power renders anywhere he rampages like a massive drought was there.
  • War Elephants: As revealed in Wanda's story about his attack on Zou, Jack ate a Devil Fruit that makes him a literal example of this (or at least, close enough as his Devil Fruit makes him a Mammoth), and initially fights the minks in his animal form, until Catviper flips him by grabbing his trunk.
  • The Worf Effect: A rather unconventional application of the trope. After unleashing untold amount of devastation on the Minks and establishing himself as someone to not be messed with, we get to see his two crushing defeats in a row. But the fact it took sheer overwhelming force both times to bring him down, and yet that's still not enough to permanently put him out of the picture only speaks volumes on his threat level. Played straight during Wano Arc, where the local Master Thief, Shutenmaru deals a gashing wound that leaves him flinching in pain and shattering one of his shotels with only one slash.
  • Worthy Opponent: He considers Cat Viper and his Guardians "true warriors".
  • You Have Failed Me: He does not take well to Sheepshead coming back to him insisting Raizou isn't on Zou, stringing the man up as punishment for coming back with that excuse.
  • Younger Than They Look: Jack is revealed in the Vivre Card Visual Dictionary to only be 28 years, making him one of the youngest commanders within any Emperor crew. Oden's flashback seemingly backs this up, as Jack is noticeably absent from major battles that both King and Queen participated in 20 years ago.

Numbers

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/numbers_infobox.png

High-ranking officers of the Beast Pirates who apparently are native to Onigashima, or at least live there like their supreme commander and Lead Performers. Fittingly, they resemble huge demons. They're among the elite of the crew and are directly below the Lead Performers.


  • The Ace: They are among the highest-ranking and strongest members of the crew.
  • The Alcoholic: According to Queen, all of them have a drinking problem, just like their captain. During the feast at Onigashima, one of them asks if he could drink directly from the barrel.
  • Carry a Big Stick: A few of them carry huge spiked kanabos over the shoulders.
  • Child Eater: When they make their first appearance, a boy witnessing their arrival tells his little sister that if they notice the two of them, they'll gobble them up. And given what they look like, it's probably not an immotivated fear...
  • The Dreaded: They appear like giant humanoid creatures whom the people of Wano are terrified of.
  • Jabba Table Manners: During the feast at Onigashima, of the Numbers asks why he can't drink saké directly from the barrel during the banquet while Queen complains that's the reason he hates partying with them.
  • Monstrous Humanoid: Aside from their huge size, their silhouettes have an unsettling dinosaur-like appearance which is made even more inhuman and scary by their large horns.
  • Oni: Implied that they're actual Onis and they certainly look the part, judging from their silhouettes. If anything, they're even more monstrous and grotesque-looking than Kaido himself. During Oden's flashback, Kawamatsu downright asks "what" are those things upon seeing one of them.
  • Signature Laugh: Each of them has a distinct laugh which is a pun ontheir respective number (in Japanese). Ahen Queen calls the numbers during his song, they reply with laughter and Queen scolds them because they aren't laughing in numerical order.

Headliners

    In General 
The elite of the Gifters and officers of the Animal Kingdom Pirates who lead directly the troops and the majority of them have eaten SMILEs and got more advantages than the average Gifter. It also seems to be the standard rank for powerful pirate captains that have allied with the crew, such as Scratchman Apoo and Basil Hawkins. Many of them are in charge of the towns and villages in the Land of Wano, being the ones to address small-scale issues happening nearby, and some of them are placed as wardens in the prison mines.

  • Body Horror: Several Headliners have eaten SMILEs. Therefore most of them are transformed in very strange hybrids, like having a lion's head in their belly or Ram horns instead of hands.
  • Mook Lieutenant: They have authority over the Gifters, Pleasures, Waiters and anyone lower but, with the exception of the Tobi Roppo and Supernovas like Hawkins and Apoo, most of them are weak compared to the All Stars.
  • Superpower Russian Roulette: For the ones that have eaten SMILEs, they gain useful powers at the cost of becoming horrifically or hilariously deformed by the various animal parts manifesting in random and unpredictable ways on their bodies. The Headliners on average seem to fare better than the Gifters in this regard, since most of them have gotten powers that enhance their abilities.
  • Theme Naming: Most Headliners are named after card games.
  • Wrong Context Magic: Most Headliners have eaten SMILEs, which are artificial Devil Fruits that aren't as complete as a Zoan Devil Fruit. Unlike a standard Zoan, the headliners don't change into an animal and hybrid form but are either stuck with some animalistic body parts, or can transform part of their body into an animal part or an entire animal.

Tobi Roppo

    In General 
A special group of the six strongest Headliners.

  • The Ace: They are the six strongest Headliners in the crew.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: X Drake, Sasaki and Who's-Who are former pirate captains of their previous crews and got the position of Tobi Roppo only in virtue of their sheer strength.
  • Dub Name Change: Averted. The Viz translations call them by the original spelling of their name, Tobi Roppo, despite meaning "Flying Six" in Japanese.
  • Equal-Opportunity Evil: Among their ranks include two women, one of whom appears to be a Giant, and a fellow who might be a Fish-Man.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: So far, two of their members, X Drake and Page One, are confirmed to have eaten dinosaur Ancient Zoans.
  • Feet-First Introduction: When all of the Tobi Roppo arrive at Onigashima, they're only shown by their feet, distinguished by their legs and different footwear. They make their first full appearence in the next chapter.
  • Horns of Villainy: A distinctive traits of all of them is to have a pair of horns, except for X Drake who styled his hair like a horn (a visual cluethat he's not loyal to Kaido), and are notorious member of an evil pirate crew. From what little is shown, the horns seems to be purely cosmetic or part of their headgears.
  • Meaningful Name: Tobi Roppo refers to Kabuki theater, but in this case is written with the final kanji 胞, which can mean sac or sheath. As Kaido's elite servants, this would make them an Evil Counterpart to the Nine Red Scabbards, the elite servants of the Kozuki family.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork:
    • Downplayed among themselves. They bicker and argue, but also confide amongst themselves, and certainly don't hate each other as much as the Lead Performers do. While they're ticked at having to gather together, its mainly because it meant they got dragged away from whatever it was they were doing.
    • Played straight with their relationship with the Lead Performers, who seem to dislike them even more than they do each other. Ulti was introduced mocking Queen's authority, Sasaki and Who's Who openly refuse to answer to (at least) King and seek to replace them as the new All-Stars even more openly, and Queen also states that he intends to eliminate one of them.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Among the Tobi Roppo there are two that are female: Black Maria and Ulti.

    "Red Flag" X Drake

Page One

Debut: Chapter 929 (Manga)

Devil Fruit: Dragon-Dragon Fruit, Model: Spinosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/page_one.png
Click here to see his hybrid form 
Click here to see his spinosaurus form 

One of the Tobi Roppo, he has eaten the Dragon-Dragon Fruit (Ryu Ryu no Mi), Model: Spinosaurus, an Ancient Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a spinosaurus.

He's a vicious pirate, being willing to use the hunt for a single defiant vendor as an excuse to destroy multiple unrelated food stands and devour their contents, telling their owners to scream for the offender to show himself if they want the destruction to end. However, around his fellow Tobi Roppo he has a meeker disposition.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Ulti calls him Pay-Pay, despite Page One's irritation whenever he hears it. Sasaki uses it mockingly.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Its exact size is unclear, but his Spinosaurus form is tall enough to rest its arms along the roof-arch of a building.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: His Spinosaurus-transforming Devil Fruit is a Ryu Ryu (Dragon-Dragon) Devil Fruit. This is owed to the fact that the Japanese word for "Dinosaur" is "Kyoryu", written with the characters for "Fearful" and "Dragon".
  • Dumb Muscle: While he's indeed very strong, as he tanks kicks from Sanji and sends him flying across several buildings with a single swing of his arm, Page One's methods and arrogance paint him as a brutal savage with no finesse, focus or tactics whatsoever.
  • Eating the Enemy: As his battle with Sanji shows, Page One isn't afraid to use his gigantic maws to chomp at the enemy when transformed into a Spinosaurus.
  • '80s Hair: A lengthy mane with an undercut that he sweeps to the side.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: He can transform into one, specifically a Spinosaurus. Due to his looks, it also has something of a crocodilan look.
  • Horned Humanoid: Downplayed, he wears fake horns on his hat, but in his Spinosaurus and hybrid form he sports protunding, horn-like brows like Hannyabal.
  • Lizard Folk: His hybrid form sacrifices his mandibles for bigger, stronger arms which gives him the appearance of a large lizard-man.
  • Mask of Power: Played with. In his debut, Page One is confident and doesn't wear any mask, but when meeting with the other Tobi Roppo, Page One is in his human form and wearing a mask, but his body language comunicates a much more introverted personality.
  • Nice Hat: When he reappears on Onigashima he's wearing a massive hat adorned with horns.
  • Tattooed Crook: His name is tattooed across his chest (spelt as Page 1), and it's visible even in his dinosaur form. He is also morally bankrupt, even for a pirate.
  • Villainous Glutton: During his rampage against the soba stands we see him gorging on soba noodles, and at one point claims to want some fruit to snack on, which means destroying a fruit shop in the process. Even when Sanji prepares to use his Raid Suit, he openly asks if it's canned food.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is purple, and sticks out when he's in his brownish spinosaurus form.

    Ulti 

Ulti

Debut: Chapter 978 (Manga)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ulti.png

"If you insult my Pay-Pay one more time, I'll break you in two!!"
Chapter 978

One of the Tobi Roppo, she's a very talkative and sassy girl who doesn't back down from a verbal quarrel. Despite this, she appears to care for her brother Page One.


  • Big Sister Instinct: Threatens to tear Sasaki in half when he trash talks "her Pay-Pay."
  • Brutal Honesty: She admits in Kaido's face that yes, having to wait for his commands did pissed her off. She also doesn't drop the behaviour when in front of Kaido or King.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's among the strongest subordinates of Kaido, and is a very rude and unpleasant girl.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: After being forced to wait, Ulti calls out loud Kaido "stupid" for calling them for what she considers just a family issue and the other five tell her not to say such things. Shortly after, she complains about the wait she had to endure and says that she thinks his request is stupid right in Kaido's face. Thankfully for her, Kaido is not angered or offended.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: In her debut, she's talking and bickering with her teammates and exchanging insults with Page One, much to the irritation of the others (except Black Maria, who finds her behaviour endearing), because she can't stand the waiting for Kaido's orders.
  • Mask Power: Ulti wears a mouthpiece which apparently doesn't prevent her from babbling and expressing her thoughts.
  • The Nicknamer: She likes to call Page One "Pay-Pay" despite his insistence to knock it off.
  • Pretty in Mink: She wears a massive dark cape trimmed with fur wich distinguish her from the other more masculine (except Black Maria) Tobi Roppo.
  • She's Got Legs: Ulti is an attractive girl whose short dress leave most of her long legs exposed.
  • Skunk Stripe: Ulti's hair alternate between dark and light-colored stripes.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: In contrast to her feminine appearance, Ulti tends to use a lot of foul language when she's annoyed, which happens to be very frequently. Given her use of formalities, it may fall into Sophisticated as Hell as well.
  • Tsundere: Ulti is very aggressive towards anyone who slightly annoys her, but is very nice to Page One, who she affectionately calls Pay-Pay, much to his annoyance, and her boss Kaido.
  • Verbal Tic: She ends her sentences with "dearinsu", a very formal way to say "to be", which Page One finds annoying.

    Who's-Who 

Who's-Who

Debut: Chapter 978 (Manga)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whos_who.png
One of the Tobi Roppo, appears as a stern and calm man with very long legs wearing a face-obscuring horned mask and smoking a cigarette.

  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: He's introduced smoking a cigarette with the others, and is one of Kaido's enforcers.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Carries a long katana with an elaborated scabbard with him.
  • Mask Power: Unlike Ulti and Page One, his mask covers the top of his face, eyes included, instead of the mouth, and sports a pair of horns, giving him a sense of mystery around his appearance, reflecting his name.
  • Meaningful Name: His name comes from a card game in which the player has to guess the identity of the other one's card, and Who's-Who wears a mask that hides most of his face.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: Who’s Who wears a jacket and a shirt unbuttoned to show off his tattooed chest.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Has very long wavy hair reaching down to his hips.
  • The Starscream: Downplayed. While waiting with the other Tobi Roppo, Who's-Who asks in a casual tone to his colleagues who they think will take Queen's position should he die. Maria's retort implies that Who's-Who wouldn't mind a promotion himself. He also gives a Slasher Smile when Kaido tells them that whoever finds his son Yamato and brings him back will have a chance to challenge a Lead Performer and take his place.
  • The Stoic: Compared to the other Tobi Roppo, who are either bickering (Ulti and Page One) or teasing (Black Maria and Sasaki), Who's-Who appears to be calm and serious and scolds the former two for acting like brats, though like the others, he does yell at Ulti when she calls Kaido an idiot.
  • Slasher Smile: After hearing of the offer to challenge an All-Star if he finds Kaido's son, Who's-Who doesn't say anything but has an excited smile, meaning he's very eager to do it.
  • Tattooed Crook: Who's-Who has some intricate tattoos on his chest, most notably an eye-like mark and his name on his pectorals. Like the others, he's a ruthless pirate.

    Black Maria

  • Absolute Cleavage: Her kimono is quite open on the chest.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: To go with her oiran looks she's smoking from a kiseru, in a sort of female counterpart to the Distinguished Gentleman's Pipe.
  • High-Class Call Girl: Black Maria is dressed as an Oiran and smokes from a kiseru, a kind of elegant pipe and has an impressive set of hair decorations associated with courtesans such as a comb, hairpins and sword blades.
  • Kimono Fanservice: Black Maria is a sensual woman who wears a kimono which exposes her shoulders and cleavage.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She seems likely to be a giantess, as from the bust-up alone she's nearly as tall as the other members sat down and need to be placed on a different floor from the other five to be at the same eye-level. In her following appearance, it is shown that the absolutely massive King is barely taller than her waist.

    Sasaki 

Sasaki

Debut: Chapter 978 (Manga)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sasaki_9.png
One of the Tobi Roppo, he's a large fellow who resembles a Fish-Man, with unruly hair.

  • Coat Cape: Wears an admiral jacket-style coat with a flaming motif on his shoulders like a cape, showing off his high position inside the crew.
  • Fangs Are Evil: He has a mouth full of sharp teeth, with two prominent lower canines jutting out of his mouth which, combined with the horns, make him more Oni-like looking.
  • Hot Paint Job: His cape and pants have a flaming motif, with dark flames on the lower side in contrast with the lighter dark side, making him appear more aggressive.
  • Named After Someone Famous: Sasaki not only is the japanese name of the card game 44A but also calls to mind Jun Sasaki, the creator of many card games.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a fancy commanders' cap adorned with long, curved horns.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: Sasaki wears a long cape/coat over his shoulders but no actual clothing on his torso.
  • Stout Strength: One of the thoughest members of Kaido's crew, he has a visible paunch compared to the others.
  • Tattooed Crook: Has several tattoes on his torso, fitting the role of a ruthless pirate enforcer.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He doesn't feel the need to wear a shirt.

Prison Mines Staff

    In general 
Some Headliners, working directly under Queen, handle the prison mines of the Udon region, in which those who tried to rebel against Orochi or showed sympathy for Oden are forced to do heavy works in exchange of a small amount of food.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: After they imprisoned Kawamatsu, instead of quickly killing him, they were ordered to give him a slow and cruel death by feeding him poisoned fish. However, Kawamatsu resisted for thirteen years (spitting the fish bones as weapons against the guards) until he's freed.
  • Wardens Are Evil: They might not torture the prisoners like the guards of Impel Down, but in this case said prisoners aren't vicious criminals who deserves it. These wardens enjoy making the prisoners work into the toughest conditions, breaking them both physically and mentally, while giving a single small kimidango as reward for moving a large heavy rock, all while clearly enjoy torturing them. The punishment for offences is first dismembering the arms, after a second offense the legs, and execution after a third offense.

    Babanuki 

Babanuki

Debut: Chapter 934 (Manga)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/babanuki_manga.png

A Headliner and the Warden of the Prison Mines in the Udon region of the Wano Country, albeith under the direct orders of Queen. He has eaten an elephant SMILE, which manifests as an elephant head in his chest that has explosive sneezes.

Just like the other wardens, Babanuki is a cruel man who enjoys inflicting pain on the prisoners.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Not him, but his elephant, who is yellow-skinned, indicating he comes from the power of an artificial devil fruit.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Being the warden of the prison, he obviously has more authority than anyone else except for the Lead Performers. He also happens to be the first SMILE user that actually causes damage to Luffy, albeit weakened by sea stone, and isn't defeated in seconds.
  • Beard of Evil: Has a long beard and is an evil warden working under Kaido. It's also a Badass Beard since he's the strongest headliner of the prison.
  • Belly Mouth: Exaggerated, he has an elephant head in his belly.
  • Cruel Elephant: He's an evil warden of the Prison Mines and has eaten an elephant SMILE which gives him some elephant traits.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Before his proper debut, he appears in the background while Daifugo punishes Hyogoro, not that he's hard to miss.
  • Finger in a Barrel: He's defeated when Luffy knots his trunk just as he's about to fire a plague bomb, making it explode inside Babanuki.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: When he tries to put an end to the rebellion with a plague-spreading bullet shot with his elephant trunk, Luffy holds the trunk shut with his hands, causing the bullet to explode inside Babanuki.
  • Large and in Charge: Although possibly justified by having eaten a SMILE that turns him into an elephant hybrid, he's the warden of the Prison Mines and he's arguably as large as an actual elephant.
  • Oni: His face has the same eyebrows, eyes and fangs as an oni, making him look like one. Just like onis are known for living in the mountains, the prison mines are close to tall mountains.
  • Poisoned Weapons: Like the rest of the prison staff, he has access to Queen's plague weaponry. In his case, Babanuki uses a heavy shell that is far more powerful than the normal bullets used by his colleagues and shoot it through his elephant's trunk.
  • Signature Laugh: "Pao pao pa pa pa pa!!". "Pao" is the Japanese onomopatoeia for an elephant trumpeting.
  • Smarter Than You Look: While he looks just as thuggish as the others, he is actually quite reasonable when it comes to situations, such as warning Queen to not fight Big Mom or trying to bring Luffy's freedom to Queen's attention. His first reaction to seeing all the intruders before him is to try and contact Kaido as quick as possible instead of assuming he can handle it on his own.
  • Sneeze of Doom: The elephant on his chest can make an explosive sneeze powerful enough to damage Luffy, albeith the latter isn't in his best conditions. He can also load it with poison shells for extra lethality.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: His body is large enough to make the elephant head on the chest look small by comparison, while his legs... not so much.

    Daifugo 

Daifugo

Debut: Chapter 934 (Manga)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daifugo_manga.png

One of the Headliners and a Vice Warden of the Prison Mines. He has eaten a scorpion SMILE, granting him extra legs and a scorpion stinger for hair. In combat he uses a pair of guns loaded with Queen's plague virus.


  • Ax-Crazy: After Luffy beats him and, eventually, breaks out of his Seastone cuffs, he gleefully starts murdering prisoners completely at random with plague-filled bullets.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: Thanks to his scorpion SMILE, he has a scorpiong stinger, although it's located on his braid.
  • Dirty Coward: Daifugo abuse of his status as Vice Warden to mistreat prisoners and fights from a distance with plague-filled bullets. When he's cornered by the revolting inmates he still tries to ineffectually threaten them with his status, but is visibly trembling and sweating before they eventually beat him up.
  • Expy: The helmet he wears and his clothing style make him appear as a scorpion version of Jagi. He even fights with guns just like Jagi.
  • Guns Akimbo: When it comes time to put the prisoners in line he uses a pair of pistols loaded with Queen's special plague bullets on them.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: He wears a pair of six-legged leather pants, and in his debut he kicks to the ground an old man.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Daifugu constantly beats up the prisoners and, during the revolt, use the Excitement Bullets on them to stop Luffy and his allies, breaking the prisoners' spirits however, after Luffy motivates the prisoners, they proceed to beat the crap out of Daifugo, who can only brag of his now useless status as Vice Warden before being beaten by the very same person he used to punish.
  • Ornamental Weapon: Has a sword on his back, but has never been shown drawing it. When he actually gets aggressive he instead uses guns.
  • Poisoned Weapons: Gleefully demonstrates Queen's special plague bullets on prisoners, very fitting for a scorpion man.
  • Scary Scorpions: He has eaten a scorpion SMILE, which gives him a stinger at the end of his braid and multiple legs, and he's an evil warden.
  • Underestimating Badassery: He thinks that he can defeat Luffy easily if Queen would let him go into the ring... even though Luffy beat him earlier. It was a surprise attack.... except Luffy was also weakened by seastone at the time and still almost knocked Daifugo out with a single attack.
  • Vertebrate with Extra Limbs: Justified by being a human who has eaten a scorpion SMILE, which gives him two extra pairs of legs just like scorpions.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has dark purple hair, which fit, considering they turn into a scorpion stinger.

    Solitaire 

Solitaire

Debut: Chapter 935 (Manga)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/solitaire_manga.png

One of the Headliners who works at the Prison Mines as a Vice Warden. She has eaten a monkey SMILE, granting her a monkey tail and extra arms.


  • Cool Helmet: She wears a pilot-like helmet with horns.
  • Dual Wielding: Four of her six arms are busy wielding a sword.
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: She has eaten a monkey SMILE which gives her a monkey tail and four simian limbs in addiction to her own pair.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: And carrying four of them with your multiple arms is even better!
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: She has six arms. Why does she have six arms while having eaten a monkey SMILE? Because she's like a spider-monkey.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She's the only female warden of the Prison Mines.
  • Stealth Pun: Like many of the Beasts Pirates, she's named after a card game; in this case, solitaire. Factor in her eight limbs, and she's spider solitaire, as well as a spider-monkey.

    Dobon 

Dobon

Voiced by: Taro Yamaguchi (JP)

Debut: Chapter 926 (Manga), Episode 919 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dobon_anime_infobox.png

One of the Headliners and a Vice Warden of the prison mines in Udon. He has eaten a hippo SMILE, making his main body sit inside a hippo's mouth.


  • Big Eater: Or so he claims to be. His beef with Luffy and Kidd earning so many dango is that they've run the storage empty, leaving him with virtually nothing.
  • Blessed with Suck: Similarly to Holdem, the hippo that his body has fused into due to the SMILE he ate has a mind of its own, often closing its mouth while Dobon is still talking, which prevents others from hearing him.
  • Body Horror: His main body is inside of a giant hippo's mouth. And the mouth closes on him without any provocation.
  • Knife Nut: Due to his unique body proportions, Dobon employs knives to savagely mutilate people caught inside the hippo's mouth.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: Almost literally. This happens when he swallows Luffy and Kidd with his hippo's mouth, which his subordinates refer to as his "murder chamber". The two then beat the crap out of him instead.
  • Waddling Head: The hippo his body is fused to resembles this. Its midsection doesn't exist and its "body" is just the hippo's hindquarters and a stubby pair of hind legs, leaving its head to take up most of its mass. Its "front legs" are Dobon's own legs that protrude from its chin.
  • Worf Effect: His attempt to bring the hammer down on Luffy and Kidd only serves to show how dangerous they've become, even when wearing Seastone.

Other Headliners

    Sheepshead 

Sheepshead

Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (JP)

Age: 24

Debut: Chapter 795 (Manga), Episode 739 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sheepshead_anime_infobox.png

The sadistic Headliner in charge of the Gifters, Sheepshead has eaten a ram SMILE, which grants him the ability to transform his hands into large ram horns.


  • Blessed with Suck: Subverted, unlike other Headliners who are SMILE users, he is able to control his transformation and retain his human form without severe permanent changes to his body.
  • The Dragon: He serves as Jack's lieutenant during his mission to Zou.
  • Horn Attack: An odd example in that his horns actually come from his arms, not his head, due to SMILEs often manifesting on parts of the body that do not correspond with their placement on the original animal.
  • Horns of Villainy: Like all Gifters, a pair of black horns sprout from his head, but this also applies to his powers which cause his hands to turn into large ram horns.
  • Meaningful Name: He's named after the game Sheepshead and, appropriately enough, has eaten a ram SMILE.
  • Uncertain Doom: Sheepshead's fate after Zunesha sinks the fleet he is a part of is unknown, but likely not good, being a Devil Fruit user and the fact Jack has appeared again and Sheepshead hasn't.
  • You Have Failed Me: Tries coming back to Jack empty-handed, and this does earn the rage of the latter.

    Ginrummy 

Ginrummy

Voiced by: Sakiko Uran (JP)

Debut: Chapter 795 (Manga), Episode 739 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ginrummy_anime.png

A Headliner who accompanied Jack and Sheepshead to Zou.


  • Blessed with Suck: She’s implied to be a subversion. Though we never see her in action, the fact she’s a Headliner with no visible mutations points towards the idea that she has the ability to freely transform like Sheepshead.
  • Chainmail Bikini: Ginrummy wears nothing but two pieces of armor covering each of her breasts and a thong.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She looks visibly disturbed when the rest of the crew says what they're going to do to the elephant once they manage to drop it to its knees.
  • Horns of Villainy: Ginrummy wears a pair of (presumably fake) horns to show her status as a member of the Animal Kingdom Pirates.
  • Stripperiffic: Out of all the Animal Kingdom Pirates seen so far, who don't seem to wear much altogether, she's dressed in the least with only an armored bikini and thong.
  • Uncertain Doom: Her fate after Zunesha sinks the fleet she's a part of is unknown, but likely not good, being a Devil Fruit user, and all. The fact Jack is seen again in Wano while she hasn't appeared since the fleet sank implies she's dead.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has magenta hair.

    Holdem 

Holdem

Voiced by: Tsuyoshi Koyama (JP)

Debut: Chapter 915 (Manga), Episode 901 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/holdem_anime_infobox.png

A Headliner who seems to be in charge of Bakura Town in the Kuri region of Wano Country, Holdem has eaten a lion SMILE, which manifests in the form of a lion's head and arms, called Kamijiro, that protrude from his stomach, though he seems to have a tenuous relationship with it.


  • Adaptation Expansion: In the manga he claims his sword had the power to "chase", though he was defeated before he could show what that means. The anime shows that this "power" is nothing more then his blade being able to turn into a Whip Sword.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: His name is Holdem, from the card game "Texas Holdem", and Kamjiro's mane resembles a poker chip.
  • Blessed with Suck: Like all SMILE users, his body manifests traits of an animal, in his case a lion, which can be effective in battle. However, the lion head created by his power has a mind of its own and doesn't seem to get along with Holdem at all.
  • Breath Weapon: Kamijiro, the lion in his belly, can breathe fire.
  • Cool Sword: He wields a distinctive katana called the Karakuri sword with a ring pattern along the sheath and a star-shaped guard. The anime shows that it can also function as a Whip Sword that can even be lit on fire with no damage to itself.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He earns Luffy's rage by telling him that he has tortured Tama and goes down in one hit from Luffy's Red Hawk without ever realizing what just happened.
  • Fiery Lion: He has a living lion head on his stomach that is capable of breathing fire.
  • Groin Attack: When pissed, Kamjiro shows no remorse in attacking Holdem's crotch. However, he forgets that, sharing Holdem's body, he feels the pain too.
  • Large and in Charge: Holdem is both tall and wide, and is one of Kaido's Headliners, meaning he has authority over the mooks.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a tall cap that seems to be a symbol of his status as a subordinate to Kaido and Shogun Orochi.
  • Stout Strength: Holdem seems quite overweight, but he's also one of Kaido's Headliners, who are among his strongest minions. Averted as he ends up being really weak.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: He wears nothing on the upper side of his body, probably justified by Kamjiro's head which prevents him wearing anything.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Since Tama refuses to show off her power, Holdem decides to force her by pinching her cheeks with a pair of pliers. Luffy is not amused to learn of this.

    Speed 

Speed

Voiced by: Satomi Satou (JP)

Debut: Chapter 917 (Manga), Episode 904 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/speed_anime_infobox.png

A Headliner who is in charge of Paradise Farm in Bakura Town of the Kuri region, where all the clean, untainted food is produced. She has eaten a horse SMILE, giving her the appearance of a centaur.


  • Absolute Cleavage: Wears a shirt with the zipper open all the way down to her navel.
  • Adaptation Expansion: In the manga she doesn't join the fight in Bakura Town while in the anime she participates by launching arrows at Zoro and O-Kiku.
  • Art Major Biology: Horses really have a 350 degree line of sight, but that's because of their eyes which are on the sides of the head. If you have frontal eyes, half-horse or not, you can't have a 350 degree sight.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: When Luffy first grabs her, thinking she's an ordinary horse, Speed is swooned by the "embrace" briefly before recognizing what is going on.
  • Heel–Face Brainwashing: Turns out that, probably because of her SMILE condition, she's susceptible to Tama's Devil Fruit powers and becomes loyal to her.
  • Horse Archer: She ate a Horse SMILE fruit which turns her into a centaur-like creature and carries around a bow and a quiver of arrows.
  • Multicolored Hair: Her hair and her horse tail are distinctly two colors, white the right half and dark blue the left half. Her clothes are appropriately bicolored as well, only light-blue instead of dark blue.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: After helping Tama and Luffy bring all the food to the starved Wano inhabitants, Speed brings Tama back to Amigasa Village, and accidentally run into a drunken, rampaging Kaido, who beats both of them.
  • Not So Stoic: While serious on the job and easily annoyed by others goofing around, Speed can be cheerful when praised and seems to enjoy going into depth about her powers to those around her.
  • Our Centaurs Are Different: Resembles a centaur thanks to her Horse SMILE fruit. And is "part horse" enough to be tamed by Tama's ability.
  • Super Senses: Claims to have a 350 degree line of sight, like horses.
  • Tsundere: Bashful when complimented at one point, angry at "idiocy" another.
  • When She Smiles: Inverted. Normally she's very beautiful, but her smile is a goofy horse-like one.

    Bao Huang 

Bao Huang

Debut: Chapter 979

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/baohuang.png

Kaido: Bao Huang!! Recite the day's schedule!!
Bao Huang: Yessir!!!
Chapter 979

A Headliner who handles Kaido's schedule and keeps him up to date on event details, particularly during the yearly Fire Festival. She has eaten a flying squirrel SMILE, giving her the ability to glide using membrane between her limbs.


  • Cool Mask: Wears a simple sheet with a stylized eye design very similar to those worn by Chinese exorcists.
  • Horns of Villainy: Bao Huang has a pair of horns that shows her affiliation with Kaido, an evil pirate.
  • Large Ham Announcer: Zig-Zagged. While informing Kaido and the Tobi Roppo about the last events, Bao Huang yells the last part of every line.
  • Not Quite Flight: As a flying squirrel SMILE user, she is capable of controlled descent, but most likely cannot "fly" in a true sense.
  • Paper Fan of Doom: Bao Huang carries a fan as big as herself to help her when she glides.
  • Screwball Squirrel: Inverted. Despite having eaten a flying squirrel SMILE, Bao Huang is very tidy and handles Kaido's schedule, making her personality the opposite of what is stereotypically associated with squirrels.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: When Bao Huang reads the announcements, she starts every line speaking normally and shouts the end of every line.
  • Wall Crawl: When Kaido calls her, she's standing upside down on the ceiling and glides down thanks to her powers.

    "Magician" Basil Hawkins 
See his entry on the Eleven Supernovas page.

Gifters

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gifters.png

Elite infantry of the Animal Kingdom Pirates. They are the powerful 10% that were fortunate enough to eat nonfaulty SMILEs and be granted the ability to partially transform into animals.


  • Blessed with Suck: While they all gain useful powers in one way or another, many of them become horrifically or hilariously deformed by the various animal parts manifesting in seemingly random and unpredictable ways on their bodies.
  • Body Horror: Gifters of the crew have random animal body parts sprouting from certain parts of their bodies. In fact, they look like incomplete Zoans. One Gifter can even turn his hand into a wolf's head!
  • Elite Mooks: They are quite stronger than Pleasures and Waiters, giving some trouble to the Minks in Zou. Against named characters, they tend to lean more towards mere grunts, however.
  • Horns of Villainy: They wear a pair of black horns on their heads.
  • Themed Aliases: All Gifters seem to go by code names based on what SMILE fruit they ate as oppose to their real names.
  • Wrong Context Magic: Their SMILEs don't seem to work like 'real' Zoans, only allowing them to transform parts of their body into animal body parts, such as turning arms into horns.

    Batman 

Batman

Voiced by: Junji Kitajima (JP)

Debut: Chapter 914 (Manga), Episode 900 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/batman_anime_infobox.png

A Gifter who ate a bat SMILE, giving him wings to fly and enhanced hearing like an actual bat.


  • Adaptational Badass: In the manga, he simply snipes at the heroes from afar with arrows. In the anime not only he can apparently manipulate the volleys of arrows with sound waves to make them home on the enemies, but he can resist a Haki-infused punch by Luffy and repeal him with a blast of sound waves.
  • Archer Archetype: Downplayed. He uses a bow and arrows in combat but his personality is not stoic at all.
  • Fat Bastard: He's an overweight pirate working under Kaido and enforcing the oppressive regime in Wano.
  • Shout-Out Theme Naming: He's named Batman, with the SMILE fruit powers of... a bat.
  • Super Senses: Thanks to having bat ears his hearing is six times greater than a normal human's, letting him eavesdrop on people from large distances.
  • Vertebrate with Extra Limbs: His bat wings don't grow on his arms, but become a third pair of limbs.
  • Winged Humanoid: Has a pair of bat wings that grow from his butt and are strong enough to allow him to fly, despite being quite fat.
  • Would Hit a Girl: If Zoro hadn't intervened, he would've hit O-Tsuru with an arrow.

    Gazelleman 

Gazelleman

Voiced by: Yasunori Masutani (JP)

Debut: Chapter 914 (Manga), Episode 900 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gazelleman_anime_infobox.png

A Gifter who ate a gazelle SMILE, giving him the legs of a gazelle to run at high speeds.


  • Required Secondary Powers: Averted. He is capable of running at incredible speeds thanks to the SMILE Devil fruit he ate. Unfortunately, while he's capable of doing so, he doesn't have the physical endurance to match his speed. As a result, he's left wheezing greatly with his sides in pain after running a great distance.
  • Shout-Out Theme Naming: He's named Gazelleman, with the SMILE fruit powers of...a gazelle.
  • Stocking Filler: A rare male (and non crossdressing) example. Gazelleman wears a pair of fishnet stocking on his legs.
  • Super Speed: Gazelles are known for being very fast animals, so his gazelle SMILE has given him the ability to run at high speed. However, he lacks the endurance to keep up his speed for a long distance.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: The top half of his body is very large, while his legs are as skinny as those of a gazelle.

    Alpacaman 

Alpacaman

Debut: Chapter 934 (Manga)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alpacaman_7.png

A Gifter who ate an alpca SMILE, allowing him to turn parts of his body into parts of an alpaca. He's a guard in the Prison Mines of the Udon Region.


  • Blessed with Suck: Averted. While his SMILE doesn't give him anything impressive beyond being good at spitting, he isn't hampered in any way physically and is capable of fighting without issue.
  • Dual Boss: Queen sends both him and Madilloman to fight Luffy and Hyogoro during the Great Sumo Inferno Tournament. By contrast, Alpacaman fights using two swords, while Madilloman uses two guns. During the fight, they even use a combined attack.
  • Dual Wielding: When he fights Hyogoro and Luffy, he employs two large sabers.
  • Everythings Betterwith Spinning: He seems to like spinning his sabers around, these spins aren't just for show, as he uses them to make his attacks more powerful.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: He wears a dark leather sleeveless jacket and is an evil warden of a prison.
  • Long Neck: The only thing he gets from his SMILE is an alpaca head with a very long neck.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: Alpacaman wears nothing under his leather jacket, showing off his ripped body.
  • Non-Human Head: The only mutation he got from his SMILE is an alpaca head and neck, giving him an alpaca's Super Spit, but the rest of his body has remained human.
  • Smug Snake: Fully believes he can handle Luffy and enjoys showing off his swordsmanship but is proven wrong by Hyogoro (with Luffy's help).
  • Spin Attack: He can rotate his swords to make many quick attacks in a row.
  • Super Spit: Because of his alpaca SMILE, when he speaks he tends to spit a lot, but can also use it in combat, which he does against Hyogoro.

    Madilloman 

Madilloman

Debut: Chapter 939 (Manga)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/madilloman_manga.png

A Gifter who ate an armadillo SMILE, allowing him to turn parts of his body into parts of an armadillo.


  • Bald of Evil: He's completely bald, which makes him look more armadillo-like, and he's a subordinate of Kaido.
  • Beard of Evil: He's an evil pirate and has a large, bushy beard.
  • Blessed with Suck: Largely averted! He is perhaps one of the luckiest Gifters seen so far. He has gained all of his animal's most desirable features (the shell in this case), and suffered little more than the bare minimum deformities.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Uses a pair of guns loaded with Seastone bullets during his match against Luffy. His crew members call him out for this, saying the match will be over too soon, but he retorts back that it's supposed to be an execution, not a show. It doesn't work out, but he gets points for using his brain.
  • Guns Akimbo: Utilizes a pair of guns loaded with Seastone as his weapons.
  • Rolling Attack: Thanks to his devil fruit, he can roll into a ball like real armadillos. When guns fail, he tries to roll over Luffy with this attack.
  • Smug Snake: While he's prepared to fight a devil fruit user, at least, he still thinks a pair of guns loaded with seastone would be enough to handle Luffy.
  • Wild West Armadillo: He has armadillo features and dresses himself like a gunslinger.


Other Crew Members

    "Iron Boy" Scotch 

"Iron Boy" Scotch

Voiced by: Masaya Takatsuka (JP), Chad Cline (EN)

Debut: Chapter 595 (Manga), Episode 513 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scotch_anime_infobox.png

A cyborg who serves as the guardian of one of Kaido's favorite islands in the New World. He's met by X Drake, who purposefully fights him to gather Kaido's attention. After the timeskip, he appears in Caribou's mini-adventure, where he's defeated by the titular Caribou.


  • Cyborg: He has modified body parts, with a face made out of metal and a triple-barrel gun for a right hand.
  • Uncertain Doom: Last time he's seen, Caribou is choking him with his swamp form, but his final fate is unknown.

    Pleasures 

Pleasures

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pleasures.png

Mid-level infantry of the Animal Kingdom Pirates who are the unfortunate many of Kaido's crew who have eaten faulty SMILEs and were turned into laughing warriors.


  • Blessed with Suck: Due to eating the faulty SMILES, they not only didn't get any Devil Fruit powers, they are also left unable to swim.
  • Getting Smilies Painted on Your Soul: Due to eating the faulty SMILES they aren't capable of doing anything besides being happy.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: They're easily identifiable as the mooks of the Animal Kingdom Pirates because of the leather jacket and BSDM-like outfit they wear. When Kin'emon uses his power on the alliance members, they are given similar outfits to disguise them.
  • Mooks: Having eaten faulty SMILEs and thus lacking special powers or abilities, Pleasures are relegated to being regular grunts in the crew much like Waiters.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Pleasures always smile and laugh, even as they're beaten down by the Minks. This is thanks to the adverse effects of having eaten faulty SMILEs which not only makes them unable to swim but also robs them the ability to express any emotion other than smiling.

    Waiters 

Waiters

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/waiters.png

Low-level infantry of the Animal Kingdom Pirates who are warriors who have yet to eat a SMILE and thus wait for their chance to become beasts.


  • Fearless Fool: They somehow think that they have a chance against Luffy, after Queen took off his seastone handcuffs. Guess the result.
  • Meaningful Name: They are called Waiters because they are waiting for their chance.
  • Mooks: More so than the Pleasures, since none of them ever had a chance to eat SMILEs yet and thus they're ranked below anyone who has, even faulty ones.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Queen offers the position of new Tobi Roppo to whoever defeats Luffy and all of the Headliners and Gifters gleefully join the fight, while the Waiters are aware of their status as mooks and decide to keep partying since they know they have zero chance of succeeding.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Unlike the Gifters and the Pleasures, the Waiters don't wear anything on their torsos, indicating that they are at the bottom of the crew's hierarchy.
