Baroque Works

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Baroque_Works_2592.png

Baroque Works is a fearsome organization of bounty hunters based in Paradise. Under their official job as bounty hunters, Baroque Works' ultimate goal is to take over the Kingdom of Alabasta . The agents have all code names based on numbers (men) or days (women) and can count on a large number of mostly nameless mooks. The Officer Agents are the strongest members, as almost all of them ate a Devil Fruit. They and their respective partners have ranks from 1 to 5. Beneath them are the Frontier Agents, who have ranks from 6 to 13, and further beneath the unranked members, the Billions. They are the main antagonists of the Alabasta Saga.

Following the end of the Alabasta civil war, most of them were arrested and the Officers put in prison. Most of the Officers subsequently escaped to live a peaceful life, whereas Mr. 0, Mr. 1, Mr. 2 and Mr. 3 were transferred to Impel Down, which they managed to escape from anyway during the Impel Down breakout incident, sans Mr. 2.

Their leaders are Mr. 0 (aka Crocodile) and Miss All Sunday (aka Nico Robin).


    open/close all folders 

    In General 
  • Aerith and Bob: All Officer Agents have pretty exotic or unusual names, except for Miss Goldenweek, who has the rather standard "Marianne".
  • All There in the Manual: Miss Doublefinger, Miss Goldenweek, Mr 4, Miss Merry Christmas, Mr 5 and Miss Valentine's real names were all revealed in the Vivre Card databook.
  • Equal-Opportunity Evil: There's sure a large variety of agents, including dark-skinned men, women, okamas and even an otter and a vulture. Mr. 0 probably doesn't care about your appearance as long as you're useful to him.
  • Evil Duo: The Officer Agents and the Frontier Agents work in pairs. One male, whose codename is after a number, indicating the pair's rank, and one female, whose codename is after an holiday or a day of the week. The only exeption is Mr. 2 who has no partner because, being an Okama, he's both male and female at the same time.
  • Great Escape: Although they don't exactly break free from Impel Down, Miss Doublefinger, Mr. 4 and Miss Merry Christmas escape from a prison ship thanks to Miss Goldenweek, Mr. 5 and Miss Valentine.
  • Instrument of Murder: Mr. 8's saxophone can be used as a shotgun.
  • Oh, Crap!: Everyone of them had at least one, usually during their battle against the Mugiwara.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: With the exception of Mr. 1, Mr. 2 and Mr. 3, the true names of the agents are unknown, if you don't collect the Vivre Cards.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: To Crocodile. They're all made of people with different quirks and powers, like Mr 3 being an art-obsessed smartass with wax powers or Miss Valentine being a loudmouth with weight powers. The only ones among them that are "normal" in comparison are Mr. 1 and Miss Doublefinger.
  • Reverse Mole: Mr. 8 and Ms. Wednesday, who are really the princess of Alabasta and one of her retainers, only joined Baroque Works to try and take out its boss from the inside.
  • Theme Naming: The higher agents follow these: Male code names are numbers, and female code names are days of the week and holidays. Lower members have much more varied and unrelated code names like Mr. Love, Mr. Mellow, Miss Catharina or Mr. Beans.
  • True Companions: Even if it doesn't look like this at first (and, admittedly, some don't get along much together), they are this. Miss Goldenweek, with Mr. 5 and Miss Valentine's help, frees Miss Doublefinger, Mr. 4 and Miss Merry Christmas and then they decide to work together in the Spider Cafe.
  • Verbal Tic: Mr. 8 has a habit of mispronouncing something, tuning his voice, then correcting himself.
  • You Are Number 6: The males stronger agents' codenames are numbers, indicating their ranks. Ironically Mr. 6 doesn't make an appearance.

"Next... Will you try cutting diamond...?"

The highest ranking Baroque Works officer (excluding Mr. 0), paired up with Miss Doublefinger. He is cold and collected and is a former bounty hunter and assassin, although he really doesn't get along with Mr. 2. He's also the most loyal of the subordinates, and the only one still working for Crocodile. He has eaten the Dice-Dice Fruit (Supa Supa no Mi) which allows him to turn any part of his body into a steel blade.

In the Alabasta arc, he engages in "Operation Utopia" and fights against Zoro, where he's defeated and sent to Impel Down. Later he escapes thanks to Luffy's intrusion, and after the Summit War, he decides to follow Crocodile in the New World.

His bounty is 75,000,000 Berries.


  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: He can casually slice buildings to pieces with a swing of his arms. Not to mention he claims he can cut things on the atomic level.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Due to his powers, he thinks no swordsman can beat him. Zoro ultimately proves him wrong.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: "Daz Bones" is a pretty badass name indeed.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: In the Post-Marineford Arc, he sports a very nice suit, albeit with his tie loose.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Although not very thick and very easy to miss, he has a single unibrow.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: And forearms, and fingers, and shins, and feet.
  • Bounty Hunter: Used to be one before joining Baroque Works.
  • The Dragon: To Crocodile, after Miss All-Sunday's Heel–Face Turn.
  • Cerebus Retcon: That "Superhero" joke from the Baroque Works cover story? According to All There in the Manual, he actually set out from a young age to be a hero, but his ideals ultimately were twisted to where he became a ruthless assassin.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Lasts one panel against Mihawk at Marineford. Though he manages to gain Mihawk's respect, something not easy to do.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Zoro. They both are deadly warriors that are defined by their serious and grim nature, were former bounty hunters that currently possess Undying Loyalty towards a slightly more powerful individual with dreams of becoming the Pirate King and use blades to kill people; they also have confirmed kills and aren't good for much other than murder. If Zoro didn't have his honorable swordsman code and followed somebody more evil than Luffy, he really wouldn't be any different than Mr. 1.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: The Dice-Dice Fruit allow him to turn any part of his body into steel blades.
  • Fallen Hero: Implied to be one through All There in the Manual.
  • Graceful Loser: After Zoro manages to slice his steel, he admits defeat and falls unconscious.
  • Hidden Depths: An extra arc in the manga had the heads of Baroque Works undergo an illusion that manifested their dreams and desires. For Daz Bones? To be a superhero. While he looks uncomfortable (or at least embarassed) on the outside, a thought bubble implies he is actually delighted. Of course, this also sets up a Stealth Pun as seen below...
  • I Choose to Stay: Despite the possibility of avoiding being imprisoned, he, along with Crocodile, decides to remain.
  • Implausible Fencing Powers: He can cut entire buildings without even touching them.
  • Insistent Terminology: Despite his powers, he does not identify himself as a swordsman.
  • Jerkass: Acts like a dick to everyone besides Crocodile.
  • Lean and Mean: He's quite tall and has very long limbs. He's actually very muscular though.
  • Made of Iron: Literally (or rather steel), due to a side effect of the Devil Fruit.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Daz Bones isn't a reassuring name.
  • Nerves of Steel: Pun aside, despite all the heavy work and torture he goes through while a prisoner in Impel Down, he's completely unfazed.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: In battle, he doesn't show any mercy and attacks Zoro even when he's wounded and cannot defend himself.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: During the Alabasta arc. Justified since his entire body is as hard as steel and Alabasta is a desertic island.
  • Psycho for Hire: He's part of an organization of villains, and he's an higher-up at that.
  • Razor-Sharp Hand: Of course, his hand can become a blade too.
  • Razor Wind: Seems to be the case, considering he doesn't have to touch the thing he wants to cut. Though you can't see said wind.
  • Scars Are Forever: Got one on his eye.
  • Scary Black Man: A dark-skinned man with possibly African features who's the right-hand man of renowned (former) member of the Seven Warlords and is formidable in combat with his slicing limbs.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: After seeing how Zoro still stands up despite being wounded several times, Mr. 1 decides to finish him once and for all, but Zoro learns how to cut through steel and it's Mr. 1's defeat.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: His Alabasta outfit is sleeveless. Justified since his fighting style revolves in turing any body part into a blade, especially his arms.
  • Stealth Pun: Several. His Devil Fruit is called the Supa-Supa Fruit, which gives him super powers and his secret dream is to be a super hero. The obvious pun is "super", a play on "Supa". The second not-quite-as-obvious pun is that he is literally a Man of Steel. A "Supaman", if you will...
  • The Stoic: He never jokes around, and remains serious and calm under any and all circumstances.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: He really doesn't get along with Mr. 2, but both work (though Mr. 2 not anymore) for Crocodile.
  • This Is a Drill: His Spiral Hollow is essentially this, by making round blades on his forearms and spinning them rapidly.
  • Theme Naming: He (along with his partner, Miss Doublefinger) has a "sharpness" theme; In particularly, his attacks are a pun on "sparking", and ironically, "super-" (supa).
  • Tattooed Crook: Has the kanji for "1" tattooed on his chest.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Crocodile. He got pissed when Zoro talked badly about him, stayed with him in jail when they could have both broken out, and when Crocodile finally does decide to leave, he follows him immediately and without question. Additionally, he obeyed his every order in the war, even if it was protecting Luffy from Hawkeye. Then he went to the New World with him.
  • Unfortunate Name: "Jazz Boner" in the German subs/dubs.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: During his escape from Impel Down, he removes the shirt of his prison suit.
  • Warrior Monk: His overall appearance resembles this.
  • Would Hurt a Child: When a little boy finds out that Mr. 2 disguised himself as Nefeltari Cobra, Bones decides to beat the boy to the point where he can't even talk.
  • The Worf Effect: Against Zoro. After controlling the fight for its majority, when Zoro discovers how to hear the "breath" of all things, Bones gets taken out in a single hit. When he goes up against Mihawk, who already knows how to cut steel, he's taken down almost immediately.

Birthday: July 30th

Bounty: 35,000,000 Berries

Debut: Chapter 155 (Manga), Episode 103 (Anime)

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

Mr.1's partner and the highest ranking female member of Baroque Works, with the exception of Miss Sunday. Like her partner, she's calm and professional, although feels sorry for Nami's awkwardness with her new weapon. She has eaten the Spike-Spike fruit (Toge Toge no Mi) who gives her the ability to grow spikes able to pierce walls on all her body or turn her body parts in big spikes.

She's introduced as a barista named Paula (which is not her real name) before revealing herself as Miss Doublefinger. After the events of Alabasta she's captured but, before she could be taken to Impel Down, Miss Goldenweek, along with Mr. 5 and Miss Valentine, helps her escape and she re-opens the Spider Cafe to work as a barista (this time for real).

She has a bounty of 35,000,000 Berries.


  • Affably Evil: Miss Doublefinger is in general quite friendly to her fellow Baroque Works members (unlike her partner who seems to be a Jerkass to everyone but Crocodile) and she even feels sorry for Nami when the latter's weapon doesn't work. Due to this, she goes somewhat easy on Nami at the beginning. When Nami finally learns to use her weapon, Doublefinger goes into killing mode, but by then it is already too late.
  • Animal Motifs: A spider. It's in her epithet, the name of her Cafe and her outfit invokes the imagery of a cobweb.
  • The Bartender: Her cover job, it's also revealed to be her biggest dream. By the end of Miss Goldenweek's mini-arc, this becomes her actual job.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Actually spikes, but still works the same way. Ms Doublefinger has the ability to grow spikes from her body.
  • Blown Across the Room: Thanks to Nami's final attack, she's sent flying through three buildings. Small wonder it didn't turn her to paste.
  • Clark Kenting: Her barista identity, Paula, is just her with a pair of glasses, a bandana on her head and her hair tied into a ponytail.
  • Clothing Damage: Defied. Oda says the reason her spikes don't rip her clothes is because it would've gotten too erotic.
  • Combat Stilettos: They're very small, but she can grow spikes under them.
  • Dark Action Girl: Is a given when you're a deadly assassin of an evil organization.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Gives some snarky comments to her partner, Mr. 1, and then mocks Nami's (apparently) useless Clima-tact.
  • Designated Girl Fight: She's the only female member of Baroque Work's team (not counting Miss Merry Christmas who's a Gonk) and fights Nami, the only female member of the Straw Hats at the time.
  • Dub Name Change: Her name is changed to "Miss New Years' Eve" in the 4Kids adaptation. The pun still works though, see Meaningful Name for why.
  • Femme Fatalons: Kind of, but one of her most common attacks is turning her fingers into needles.
  • Growing Muscles Sequence: Among the things her devil fruit can do is to turn her fingers into syringes and then pump her muscles.
  • Hartman Hips: Made more evident by her Sexy Walk.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Given her devil fruit, this is her favorite method of assassination.
  • Meaningful Name: Oda explains that "Double finger" refers to his own style of body language he uses when he talks about January 1 (New Year's Day). He raises the index fingers on both of his hands which represents the month and the day.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's a beautiful woman with an Impossible Hourglass Figure and her walk emphasizes this.
  • Oh, Crap!: Right before Nami uses her ultimate attack.
  • Rolling Attack: In one of her attacks, Stinger Hedgehog (One must wonder what it references), she turns her entire body into spikes and rolls toward the opponent.
  • Sincerity Mode: She actually sympathizes a little with Nami when she's trying to get the hang of the Clima-Tic since it just make Nami look like a fool. Granted not enough to stop her from killing her, but still...
  • Spike Balls of Doom: With her devil fruit, Miss Doublefinger can turn her entire body into one.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Miss Doublefingers goes very easy on Nami because she doesn't consider her a real fighter, to the point of proving genuine embarass for her. To be fair, even Nami herself wasn't really confident about Clima-tact's utility at the beginning.
  • Use Your Head: Especially if you turn your hair into a ball of spikes.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She keeps getting more frustrated during her fight with Nami as the latter keeps escaping.
  • Wall Crawl: She can grows some spikes under her feet and walk on the walls or even the ceiling, and then land on her opponent with a spiked head.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Had she not played with Nami, the latter couldn't have learned how to use the climatact and Miss Doublefinger would've likely won.
  • Would Hurt a Child: She has problem with beating a kid until he's unconscious.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is blue and frizzy.

"Straw-chan...!! I came to save you... in the name of friendship!!!"

Mr. 2 Bon Clay (or "Bon Kurei") is one of the more eccentric characters in the series, and that's saying something. A transvestite with a dance-based fighting style called Okama Kenpo (Crossdresser Martial Arts), the Clone-Clone Fruit (Mane Mane no Mi) that enables him to copy others' appearances, and an incredibly fruity and over the top personality, he is much more dangerous than he may appear, as he was the sole member of the second highest tier of the Baroque Works Officer Agents. Mr. 2 is prone to breaking out in song and twirling around, annoying those nearby to no end, and he shows a surprising level of loyalty towards his friends. And if you're wondering why he has no female calendar-themed partner, he's equal parts man and woman all by himself- and that's without using his Devil Fruit to pose as an actual girl.

He first met the Straw Hats while they were en route to Alabasta after he had fallen overboard off his own ship, and got along quite well with the more easily amused Luffy, Chopper, and Usopp. After being defeated by Sanji, he was deeply moved by what he saw as an gesture of sportsmanship, resulting in him and his flunkies distracting the Marines long enough for the Straw Hats to escape Alabasta. Afterwards, after a series of misadventures, Mr. 2 was eventually arrested and sent to Impel Down.

During Luffy's attempt to rescue Ace, he was freed and ended up fighting alongside him, Buggy the Clown, and fellow Baroque Works agent Mr. 3. After Luffy was defeated by the warden Magellan and left to die in Level 5, Mr.2 set out to save him and find the imprisoned Emporio Ivankov, a transvestite king who allegedly had miraculous healing powers, dragging the unwilling Buggy and Mr.3 along for the ride as well. Afterwards, in a truly epic Tear Jerker moment, he stayed behind and disguised himself as Magellan so that the Gates of Justice would open and the rest of his comrades could escape.

Fortunately, as fate would have it, Impel Down Level 5.5 is now led by a new okama who is raising a second wave of resistance against the dungeon-like prison, and it's almost certainly implied to be him.

He has a bounty of 32,000,000 Berries.


  • Affably Evil: He's very nice for being a member of an evil organization, it's no wonder he performs a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Agent Peacock: Magnificently, with his flamboyant mannerisms and badass feats.
  • Air Jousting: His fight with Sanji ends with one a-la Ken vs Shin. After that, he's defeated.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: He and Luffy pull this off epically in Impel Down against the blue gorillas.
  • Beautiful All Along: While his garish outfit and wacky personality generally cause him to look very goofy, he's surprisingly handsome without makeup on and when acting serious.
  • Bowdlerise: In the anime, the kanji on his coat are the characters for the Japanese word for ballerina rather than Okama, as in the manga (Okama is slang for transvestite), and his fighting style, Okama Kenpo, was renamed Ballet Kenpo. The 4Kids dub went one further and named his fighting style Crazy Karate. Movie 8, however, has the "Okama" kanji on his coat. Funimation naturally did not censor it.
  • Bring It: In an epic moment of awesomeness, Bon Clay drops his sissy act if only for a moment to tell Hina to come after him and his crew instead of the Straw Hats.
    Bon Clay: BRING IT ON, SISTER.
  • Broken Pedestal: He views Ivankov as a miracle worker who can do anything. When he actually meets him, Ivankov's antics are a little much even for him and his healing methods are nowhere near the miracles Bon Clay expected. Ivankov outright tells him that he's not as good as the pretty picture Bon Clay has made in his mind.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Stop joking around!"
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: He kicked a giant lion in the face and brought it down! And we're not talking "giant" like the size of your average car. No, we're talking giant like the size of your average house.
  • Crossdresser: Subverted. Despite the ballerina-inspired early outfit, and okama meaning such, he hasn't actually done any crossdressing, though he does claim to be both a man and a woman. His fellows in the Kamabakka Kingdom, however, go all-out drag (as do the Newkama of Impel Down... at least the ones retaining their original gender, the rest having been gone through a gender-swapping transmogrification using Ivankov's equally ambiguous gender bending okama-fitting powers).
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Usopp says that he and Eyelashes have been defeated by Mr. 2 in two seconds. One second each.
  • Dance Battler: Okama Kenpo is largely based on ballet moves, all of which involve his feet.
  • Determinator: He's definitely earned his credentials in this area during the Impel Down arc. Despite fighting hordes of enemies, he still keep going without slowing down.
  • Deuteragonist: Of the Impel Down Arc. There are even a few chapters in the middle where Luffy is taken out entirely, and the story focuses on Bentham's efforts to save him.
  • Extremity Extremist: His fighting style, Okama Kenpo, is mainly based on kicks.
  • Gender Bender: He once impersonated Nami and flashed the Straw Hats to prove his devil fruit's, er, 'completeness'. Nami was not amused.
  • Gonk: Downplayed, since he's not that ugly, but when he tries to mix his face with the funniest parts he "collected" the only thing that changes it's his nose into Usopp's.
  • Happily Married: In the gag comic "Mugiwara Theatre: Family Time", he marries Nami in a beautiful ceremony. Turns out to be a dream cooked up by Sanji.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Performs one at the end of the Alabasta arc, thanks to The Power of Friendship.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Somehow manages to pull this off in every arc he appears in:
    • He impersonates Luffy to distract the Marines at the end of the Alabasta arc.
    • In the manga-only cover story 'Meet Baroque Works' he took on Hina again, along with a fairly large force of Marines, to allow his fellow members to rescue Miss Valentine from execution. This led to his becoming imprisoned in Impel Down.
    • At the end of the Impel Down arc, he decides to stay behind so that he can impersonate Magellan and have the Gates of Justice opened so that Luffy and the rest of the escapees can sail away to freedom. He only tells Jimbei this to prevent the others from finding out, and while he's discovered by Magellan, he gets to bid a teary farewell to the entire group of escapees. Luffy actually complains about this, annoyed that Bon Clay is always the one doing the sacrificing.
  • Hot-Blooded: A rather very passionate and spirited man... woman... okama.
  • Inconsistent Dub: After the censors gave up on covering transvestites in the anime (due to their prominent role from the Impel Down arc onwards), his fighting style was allowed to regain its manga name.
  • Large Ham: He's very loud and flamboyant.
  • Meaningful Name: His last name, Bentham is made up of the words Bent and Ham. Bent can mean queer or not straight, as he is, and ham, as noted above, can come from the fact that he is a Large Ham.
  • Nice Guy: Even after being outed as one of the Baroque Works members, he's still very nice towards the Straw Hats, at least after they beat him and his group.
  • Photographic Memory: Whether or not it is an effect of eating the Mane Mane no Mi, Mr. 2 is capable of remembering every person he ever touched.
  • The Power of Friendship: A firm believer of this. He oozes this from his pores at the end of the Alabasta arc, and goes into overdrive in Impel Down.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Putting his ballerina-inspired Baroque Works outfit aside, he also wore a pink overcoat and, later on, a more fashionable, yet still fruity, suit jacket.
  • Shapeshifter: His devil fruit gives him the power to transform into any person he touches.
  • Shapeshifter Mashup: Parodied. His Clone-Clone Montage is supposed to be this (taking aspects of different people he's touched to make a new face) which he tried to use on Sanji to make the world's weirdest face to make him laugh. 90% of the "new face" was his own with the only difference being his nose which was that of Usopp's.
  • Shape Shifter Default Form: Though he can take any physical form so long as he's touched that person, Bon Clay always delivers the actual attack in his normal form. He explains that his best techniques require a perfect understanding of his body's strength and limitations, which he'd never have in someone else's body.
  • Shape Shifter Guilt Trip: Subverted when he tries turning into Usopp and Sanji still kicks his face in, but Double Subverted as soon as he turns into Nami and Sanji turns into lovestruck goo. Mr. 2 himself mentally comments that he can't believe it's that easy.
  • She Is the King: Inverted. After the events of Impel Down, he becomes the new queen of Newkama Land.
  • Showing Off the New Body: Played for laughs when he turns into Nami and flashes Luffy, Usopp, and Chopper, taking their collective breath away. Nami is not amused.
  • Sissy Villain: When he was in Crocodile's group. The way he talks and runs has the word "sissy" all over him.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name should actually be spelled "Bon Kurei", a reference to a Buddhist festival, yet "Bon Clay" is far more deeply ingrained in the fandom due to early fan translations and later official ones – in both English and Japanese – using Clay. Part of the rationale, apart from sounding similar, is that Clay references his morphing abilities.
  • Stealth Pun: Mr. 2 proudly calls himself an okama. Okama is a Japanese slang term that can refer to a gay man or male crossdresser. The term literally means pot and is derived from the slang usage of the term to refer to the buttocks in regards to certain "homosexual male interactions". The bottom half of Mr. 2's Baroque Works outfit has him wearing very big and distinctively shaped almost pot-like pantaloons that emphasize his pelvic region.
  • Token Good Teammate: Of Baroque Works. When he meets the Straw Hats, he's very friendly and entertains them for a while (to be fair, this is before he learns the Straw Hats are wanted by Baroque Works) and is one of the few to perform a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Holy hell, did he ever, both in moral fiber and pushing himself to his limits.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Sure, Heel–Face Turn and all, but between his passion about friendship and later acts of badassery, it's easy to forget that this is the guy who framed the incredibly caring King of Alabasta, then ran away laughing about it. Compare that guy to the Bon Clay who saved Luffy in Impel Down. Yeah.
  • True Companions: And how! He never leaves his friends behind. Even when he ran away when Luffy faced Magellan, he came back to save him. Without Bon's cheers, Luffy would have died from injuries sustained in that previous encounter. Heck, he even sacrificed himself twice to save Luffy & Co., the last time he even faced Magellan without any regrets.
  • Villainous Rescue: In Miss Goldenweek's mini-adventure, he saves a captured Miss Valentine. It doubles as a Heroic Sacrifice since he ends up being captured because of this.

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

Mr. 3's partner. She's not much suited for combat and generally just gives support to his partner (like, painting his wax statues), with whom she gets really along, but is able to use a special technique known as Colors Trap which allows her to control a person's behavior by drawing a symbol either next to the subject (contact is required) or directly on him/her. The effect depends upon the color used.

After the events of Little Garden, she's not seen until her own starring mini-adventures, which take place after the Alabasta's arc. She, with the help of Mr. 5 and Miss Valentine, frees some of her fellow Baroque Works members.

Her bounty is 29,000,000 Berries.


  • A Day in the Limelight: She stars in her own mini-adventure: Miss Goldenweek's "Operation: Meet Baroque Works".
  • And I Must Scream: The targets of Colors Trap's hypnosis are usually conscious of it, like Luffy who, under the effect of Calming Green, is evidently very angry underneath.
  • Art Attacker: Ms. Goldenweek's Colors Trap. It's explained as a sort of hypnosis.
  • Badass Normal: Altough not exactly an Action Girl, she's still paired with the third highest ranked Baroque Work agent, this despite lacking a Devil Fruit power.
  • Blush Stickers: She has permanents circles of blush that emphasize her young age.
  • Bull Seeing Red: Her Colors Trap "Bullfight red" (Togyu no Aka) induces the target to attack the red symbol.
  • Color Coded Emotions: Some of her Colors Trap techniques change the target's emotions based on the symbol's color.
    • Laughter Yellow (Warai no Kiiro): makes the target laugh uncontrollably.
    • Sadness Blue (Kanashimi no Ao): makes the target sad.
    • Calming Green (Nagomi no Midori): makes the target relaxed.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: After Luffy breaks free from Colors Trap, she's quickly defeated offscreen.
  • Disobey This Message: Betrayal Black (Uragiri no Kuro) induces the target to disobey every order.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Frequently takes off her shoes leaving her only wearing socks, which she even does in the middle of battle (to have a picnic).
  • The Dragon: To Mr. 3 in the Little Garden arc. She's his partner and is closer to him than Mr. 5 and Miss Valentine.
  • Everything's Better with Rainbows: "Rainbow of Dreams" (Yume no Nijiiro) turns someone into whatever they dream of the most. In her case, she becomes a painter.
  • Fluffy Tamer: With her "Yellow-green of friendship" (Tomodachi no Kimidori), she befriends a pterodactyl.
  • Hand-Hiding Sleeves: Of the oversized kind. Her disguise includes a striped sweatshirt with very long sleeves.
  • Hidden Depths: The Little Garden arc portrays her as an utter Lazy Bum with a distinct Lack of Empathy, apathetic enough to help out with Mr. 3's Death Trap and casually confirm its Kryptonite Factor to Luffy and Usopp. But when her cover arc rolls around, she suddenly decides to launch a dangerous rescue mission at absolutely no gain to herself, for a bunch of coworkers she probably hasn't even met.
  • Little Miss Badass: A young teenager and one of Baroque Works highest ranked agents.
  • Logical Weakness: In order to work, Colors Trap's symbols must be in contact with the target. If the target is not touching it, there's no hypnosis. Also, it works better on the simple-minded (like Luffy), therefore a smarter person is probably immune to it.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name comes the national symbol of the French republic, and her Red Baron is taken from Eugène Delacroix's "Liberty Leading the People". Fittingly, she has an artistic theme and saved her comrades before they were taken to Impel Down.
  • Mid-Battle Tea Break: Miss Goldenweek manages to control Luffy and force him to have a picnic tea with her.
  • More Deadly Than the Male: Bounty-wise, she is actually above her partner Mr. 3, even if she's not a better fighter.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a wide-brimmed pink hat.
  • Non-Action Guy: Besides Colors Trap, Miss Goldenweek is useless in combat.
  • Older Than They Look: She's actually 16 years old, 18 after the timeskip, but can pass off for a child half that age.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: While not too blatant, Hina manages to see through her disguise.
  • Personality Power: What's the biggest dream of the girl whose combat style revolves around painting symbols? Becoming a painter...
  • Squishy Wizard: Her Colors Trap is strong, but once Luffy and Usopp figure out a counter, she has nothing else going for her. Carue the Team Pet takes her down solo.
  • The Stoic: She rarely shows any emotion.
  • Wrong Context Magic: Colors Trap doesn't originate from any kind of devil fruit, and barely has an explanation of how it works except that it's some sort of hypnosis.

His bounty is 3,200,000 Berries.


  • Abnormal Ammo: His bazooka shoots explosive baseballs!
  • Almighty Janitor: A mild example, but he and his partner are stronger than the third duo. However, the latter are ranked higher because they're smarter. Inverted in regards to his bounty, which is actually lower than either Mr. 5 or Miss Valentine's, but he still technically outranks them.

  • Badass Normal: Doesn't have any devil fruit, but is still really strong.

  • Dumb Muscle: Again, he's not smart, but he's very strong. Miss Merry Christmas compensates for the "dumb" part.

  • I Just Shot Marvin in the Face: Usopp tricks Mr. 4 into accidentally hitting his partner with his bat.
  • It Runs on Nonsensoleum: How does a gun eat a Devil Fruit? In hindsight, this foreshadows one of the discoveries of Vegapunk, a character who's not mentioned (read mentioned, after more than 700 chapters he still has to appear) until a hundred chapters later.
  • Living Weapon: Lasso, his dog-bazooka. Courtesy of the Dog-Dog Fruit, Model: Dachsund.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is reference Babe Ruth, widely considered one of the greatest baseball players to have ever lived, and Mr. 4 fights sending explosive baseballs towards his enemies.

  • Too Dumb to Live: They think that they'll receive a promotion for firing the bomb into the city, not realizing they'd be caught in the blast as well.
