"This place you're standing at now...is the place where all dreams come to die in the New World!!! Standing toe to toe with a Yonko?! Hah, talk about wishful thinking! You won't even get the chance to lay a finger on Mama!!!"
Charlotte Brûlée

The powerful and influential pirate crew of Charlotte Linlin, better known as "Big Mom", one of the Four Emperors. With a candy and pastry theme, the crew use the fittingly food-based archipielago of Totto Land as their headquarters, which Big Mom rules as its queen and administers as an independent country unaffiliated with the World Government. The crew also keeps multiple islands in the New World as protectorates under their authority, protecting them from other pirates in exchange for a monthly tribute consisting of copious amounts of candy and sweets to satiate Big Mom's voracious appetite.

The crew is deeply intertwined with the Charlotte Family, which is comprised of Big Mom's 85 children (46 sons and 39 daughters), which she's had from 43 husbands. Each of Totto Land's 34 islands is governed by one of Big Mom's children as that island's Minister; most of them are also executive members of the Big Mom Pirates and powerful fighters in their own right. Big Mom's children are also used by her in Arranged Marriages with powerful pirates and members of the Underworld to gain their allegiance, increasing the size, power and influence of her crew.

After Luffy and the Straw Hats successfully manage to infiltrate Totto Land, cause great mayhem and barely escape, the Big Mom Pirates have been deployed to hunt Luffy down and get revenge.

    General 
  • Alice Allusion: Big Mom herself is the Queen of Hearts, an overbearing female figure with an explosive temper. There's also the Chess Soldiers. And the egg-like Tamago and leonine Pekoms might be a nod to Humpty Dumpty and the first half of the Lion and Unicorn respectively (Pekoms could also be the Mock Turtle).
  • Alpha Strike: The gist of the punishment they inflict on people who harm their most esteemed kin. A huge army of enraged siblings, totaling the vast majority of the Charlotte Family, gathers to swarm down on the offender.
  • Altar Diplomacy: Alliances between the Big Mom Pirates and other groups are typically cemented via one member of the Charlotte Family marrying a member of the allying group.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Like the Sweet Commanders, many of Big Mom's other children are also similarly powerful in one way or another.
  • Being Personal Isn't Professional: Seems to be a sentiment among the crews. Bege shot Pekoms when the latter took his emotions into account when dealing with the mission to bring the Straw Hats to Big Mom, what with them helping his devastated homeland. This action disgusted Sanji, noting that he has no respect for a crew who would hurt one of their own. Tamago then countered using this trope, even saying that Capone did the right thing. However he would later state that if Pekoms was alive he'd beg Big Mom to take him back
  • Bright Is Not Good: The entirety of Big Mom's crew wear bright colors, so much they could fit right in a circus. They make up some of the central antagonists of the Whole Cake Island arc.
  • Brother-Sister Team: Many of the Big Mom Pirates' elite forces are half-siblings, and part of the Charlotte family. They all participate in battles should the situation require it. Special mention go to fraternal twins Mascarpone and Joscarpone, who are always seen fighting together.
  • Chess Motifs: Two-fold; The army of Mooks employed by the crew are called the "Chess Barbarian Army", which are Homies dressed and armed like chess pieces, and then the main crew also have Chess ranks, with Tamago as a Knight, Bobbin as a Bishop, and Capone Bege as a Rook.
  • Color Motif: Judging from the episodes featuring them, Big Mom and her crew seem to wear a lot of pink.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Double-subverted with King Baum; in chapter 846 he is gravely injured by "Mad Moiselle" Amande when she uses her sword to saw through his body at an agonizingly slow pace. He begs her to kill him quickly, but Amande refuses just to savor his last moments of pain. It didn't seem to take however, because he was later seen revived and stitched together by a female tree in Chapter 873... then was burnt to a crisp by Prometheus sun-bombing a large portion of the Seducing Woods a chapter later.
  • Everyone Is Armed: It's shown during the wedding ceremony that most of the lesser crew are armed with the special revolver that Pudding mentions to have, even the priest.
  • Evil Counterpart: Katakuri and his younger triplet brothers, Daifuku and Oven, can be seen as counterparts of the Straw Hats' Monster Trio.
    • Daifuku is a short-tempered Devil Fruit user, whose main power relies on having a very strong genie fight for him. The calm and collected Zoro uses nothing but swords and Haki to defeat his enemies.
    • Oven and Sanji both use fire, but Sanji only attacks with his feet and legs, because Zeff taught him never to use his hands in a fight. Oven, however, does; while it fits with his name and theme of oven-baked foods, Oven's use of hands is anathema to a cook, because it puts the hands at risk. The contrast is shown when he unwittingly fire-punches a disguised Sanji, who sends him flying into a wall with a powerful kick
    • Katakuri contrasts Luffy, showing what would happen if Luffy's power was used in tandem with a deadly intellect and powerful Haki. The result? A walking Curb-Stomp Battle, which is lampshaded by Carrot, who points out how similar their powers are.
  • Foil:
    • Big Mom's crew seem to contrast the Donquixote Pirates. Big Mom's crew is very large and almost entirely consists of biological family members, while the smaller Donquixote Pirates have members who were taken in because they had powers and quirks seen as desirable and "convenient" for the crew. Big Mom's crew is ruled by fear, while the Donquixote Pirates have Undying Loyalty to their captain because he is their father figure. The captains have high positions on different sides of the law; Doflamingo is a Warlord with ties to the World Government and a former World Noble who lost everything as a child when his father decided to live among "commoners", while Big Mom is a pirate Emperor and queen of Whole Cake Island and its surrounding lands who rose from being an abandoned orphan with incredible strength and an eating disorder to being one of the biggest threats in the world. The origins of both crews seem to differ, too - Big Mom had purely good intentions when she started her crew and wanted to create a utopia where everyone can (literally) see "eye-to-eye". Doffy's crew was essentially nothing more than a way to gather "convenient" tools, to satisfy his own inflated ego, and to destroy everything the World Nobles lord over just to spite them for refusing to accept him back into Mariejois.
    • Also seems to be one for the Whitebeard pirates mainly on their "family" interpretation, since while none of the Known Whitebeard Pirates are related by blood, they regard each other as family, whereas the Big Mom Pirates see anyone from outside their blood family as pawns at best and trash at worst.
    • The Charlotte family is also a foil to the Vinsmoke family in that, while both of them are very influential families full of strong fighters, the living Vinsmokes inherited an empire but lost it, whereas Big Mom created her empire herself and still has it. In addition, the two families have opposite views on chefs: The Vinsmokes consider chefs as slaves and treat them poorly, whereas the Charlottes consider chefs as valuable and not only have a few in high positions, most notably Streusen, but a number of the Charlotte children are chefs themselves, such as Pudding, Cracker, and Perospero. They also exhibit a case of Magic Versus Science: The Vinsmokes' power comes mostly from their hyper-advanced Lineage Factor engineering, whereas the Charlotte family relies very much on Devil Fruit powers.
    • They're also a foil to the Straw Hats - both are immensely powerful and feared by both the World Government and other pirates, except the Straw Hats never let their reputation get to their heads. While the Charlottes heavily rely on individual power and lots of Chess soldier reserves.
  • Fractured Fairy Tale: All of Totto Land is a quaint fairy tale kingdom with entire landscapes made of candy, smiling flowers and happy suns, etc. But it's actually a nightmare world under Carthaginian peace, as Big Mom will destroy anyone who fails to pay tribute. Individual crewmen nod to Wicked Witches (Brûlée), Alice in Wonderland (Chess Soldiers), and various others.
  • Fusion Dance: An SBS reveals that one of the Decuplets, Newshi, ate the Gocha Gocha no Mi (Mix Mix Fruit), which allows him to perform one with his own brothers and sisters and allows him to become a towering, lanky colossus armed with a scaled-up Sinister Scythe.
  • Genius Loci: Totland has a lot of Animate Inanimate Object, so many that the land itself is alive. And if you are trespassing, know that they will watch your every move and make your life hell. This is thanks to Big Mom's Soul Soul powers, granting life to them.
  • Gilded Cage: Totto Land, or anyplace in Big Mom's territory counts as this for most of her children. They're all left wanting for nothing, with food and riches everywhere they go, but Big Mom is so tyrannical and controlling that most of her children gave up on defying her to pursue their own dreams save for one of Big Mom's daughters, Lola, who successfully ran away with her mother's Vivre Card. For that, she was disowned, with plans to send assassins after her.
  • Gonk: Some of Big Mom's human pirate crew members as well as her children (especially the older ones) are ugly-looking. So far we've seen Bobbin, Chiffon and her sister Lola, Cracker (subverted in his case as his real appearance is not that bad-looking), Opera (who's a walking, talking, goopy mess of cream) and his brothers and Brûlée (whom Luffy even mistook for a tree branch when she stands on a tree). Pound, Chiffon and Lola's father, is also ugly-looking (though he's seen as an outsider to the family).
  • Jerkass: Most of Big Mom's children, especially the older ones. It could also apply to most of her pirate crew as well — Bobbin's seen laughing after burning down a country.
  • King Mook: The boss of the Seducing Woods, King Baum, is a really big tree.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: The wedding plan falling apart as it did was the direct result of the family's own arrogance and cruelty. Had Big Mom even bothered to be a better mother to her children, none of them would grow up to become severely dysfunctional adults, barely able to work together. Chiffon being abused so badly led to her siding with Bege, giving her husband all the information he needed to pull off his assassination plan in the first place. Pudding betraying her family in secret resulted from a lifetime of being treated as a freak and receiving her first genuine compliment from Sanji, the very person she was supposed to kill. Katakuri eventually stopped being The Ace for his siblings because it was clear they only cared for the facade he put up to protect them and not the real person he is underneath. Even Praline jumped ship, eloping from her home with her husband and his crew, and coming to the Straw Hats' rescue. And naturally, luring the Vinsmokes into a false alliance and setting up their execution directly led to the Straw Hats wrecking the wedding in the first place because of the Vinsmokes' blood ties to Sanji, who is too compassionate to let even his hated relatives die, which gave the Vinsmokes ample opportunity for a Roaring Rampage of Revenge later on.
  • Let's Meet the Meat: The Animate Inanimate Objects in Totland include foods. It can be quite jarring to see your dinner asking you what would you prefer, expressing discomfort when eaten but ultimately satisfied that they taste good, as Sanji, Pudding's groom-to-be, unfortunately discovered during a luncheon with Big Mom herself.
  • The Maiden Name Debate: Thanks to Big Mom's pirate reputation, the Charlotte family name is considered very powerful. As such, Big Mom and her children all go by the surname. Even after marriage, Big Mom and those of her daughters that have been wedded retain the name.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": Receives these frequently when they realize the unpredictability of dealing with the Straw Hats.
    • The first comes when Luffy manages to actually defeat Cracker. Which resulted in them sending an entire army just to fight him.
    • Second comes during the wedding when Luffy, followed by multiple copies of him created by Brûlée's power, burst out of the wedding cake. This is followed shortly by Brook smashing the picture of Mother Caramel which briefly makes Big Mom go catatonic.
    • Third is Whole Cake Chantu suddenly being knocked over at the base by an explosion which sends everyone falling off it, costing them the chance to eliminate their enemies once they had them cornered.
    • Fourth, Big Mom's hunger pangs kicking in after she's denied her wedding cake and about to go on a rampage.
    • Fifth, the Germa 66 whom they earlier tried to kill and were thought dead thanks to a faked report suddenly arriving at Cacao Island and taking out a good chunk of their fleet while likewise saving Sanji and Luffy from their killing blows.
    • Sixth, Brûlée reveals to the forces at Cacao Island (and to Mont-d'Or and Baron Tamago, who are at Whole Cake Island, listening to the confrontation over a Transponder Snail) that Luffy defeated Katakuri. Their horrified reactions are immediately followed by disbelief and later rage.
  • Matriarchy: Totto Land and its surrounding islands are ruled by a powerful queen, Big Mom. Her entire royal family holds fathers overall in contempt, seeing them as outsiders who don't deserve to live in the same place as them. However, Totto Land's government is mix-gendered, with both daughters and sons of Big Mom working as her Ministers and/or elite force against potential threats. Due to Big Mom's insanity, it doesn't make Totto Land a better place to live in.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • The Charlotte family in general seems to be entirely named after sweets and other kinds of food, which completely fits with Big Mom's love of sweets. Almost all of them also reference their own name in various ways, either by their appearance or their powers.
    • As a whole, the Charlotte family is named after the charlotte cake, which is made of several ingredients that most of Big Mom's children happened to be named after. It could reference how almost all members of the family are working together to help their mother keep Totto Land running.
  • Mooks: The Chess Soldiers, which are chess-themed Homies with card-themed weaponry.
  • Non-Indicative Name: You'd be forgiven for thinking Perospero's Devil Fruit power, the Lick-Lick Fruit, is solely about licking things based on its name when it's actually about creating candy (that one can lick), including turning people into candy.
  • Not So Invincible After All: After the end of the Totto Land arc, Morgans publishes the Straw Hats' accomplishments in Totto Land, and the news of a pirate crew entering the "land of death", fighting and defeating some of Big Mom's most powerful children, and coming out alive, puts a big crack in their reputation as an "invincible" Emperor's crew.
  • One-Man Army: This pretty much applies to most of Big Mom's crew as when gathering supplies for the tea party, they only sent one member from the crew to get one particular ingredient. The same thing could apply to most of Big Mom's children as well.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • Having a giant-sized person rampaging through your country, even if it's your own parent, would end up threatening the lands and people you govern. Big Mom's children are understandably distressed whenever she goes on hunger-induced rampages; Moscato risked his own life trying to calm Big Mom down and, in the anime, helped with the evacuation of the general populace while Whole Cake Island was being destroyed. After the Straw Hat-Firetank Pirate-Alliance destroys the wedding cake Big Mom wanted, her entire family go into Mass "Oh, Crap!" mode as their head cook, Streusen, is severely injured, so they end up relying on Pudding to bake a replacement for something that took days to make. In Chapter 885, Amande desperately tries to stop Big Mom from destroying Nuts Island, and is seen staring forlornly at the aftermath's destruction while Nuts Island's citizens mourn their losses.
    • Being in a family that is raised in dysfunction by an insane, hedonistic, fickle, and destructive monster like Big Mom can be damaging to one's psyche. Because fathers were treated as outsiders and never allowed to live with the family, most of Big Mom's children grew up having a twisted understanding of what family is. Pudding and Chiffon end up helping Big Mom's enemies escape because they've given them the love their own family could not. Katakuri tries to resolve his guilt and shame over letting Brûlée be scarred by his childhood bullies by hiding everything about himself so he could be the warrior and protector his family needed, at the cost of his own psychological health; he drops the act in the end because it was clear that his siblings loved his facade more than the real person beneath it.
    • Being so arrogant about their family's political power and firepower has naturally made them blind to any holes in their territory's defenses such as enemy pirate crews manipulating their way into Totto Land, or the Charlottes' own siblings sabotaging their family's efforts for personal reasons.
    • Focusing entirely on one enemy (Luffy and Sanji) leaves them completely vulnerable to another (the Vinsmokes), allowing them to be decimated in droves.
  • Red Baron: Many of Big Mom's children and crew members have their own epithet as a result of their badassery. Examples revealed so far included Bobbin "the Disposer", "Crane Rider" Randolph, "Scribe" Mont-d'Or, etc.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge:
    • When news of Cracker's defeat by Luffy spread, Big Mom's crew and children take up arms en masse and go to hunt down Luffy. Appropriately, the Chapter in which it occurs is titled "The Enraged Army".
    • When Brûlée delivers the heartbreaking news that Katakuri has been defeated, the entire family start focusing only on Luffy and Sanji to avenge their fallen brother... except that makes them vulnerable to the Vinsmokes' forces, who are all indebted to Sanji for saving them and want to pay the Charlottes back for nearly screwing them over.
  • Shoulder Teammate: Counter is often seen with a tiny woman hanging off of his left arm, even in battle.
  • Sinister Scythe: The Charlotte decuplets all wield matching scythes as their weapons of choice. When they fuse together thanks to Newshi's Devil Fruit, the scythe scales up as well.
  • Succession Crisis: Whenever a Minister of a certain food island dies or retires from the position for some reason, they're replaced by someone who has similar skills pertaining to the place they govern over.
    • When Moscato, the Minister of Gelato, was incapacitated by Big Mom during one of her hunger rampages, it was assumed he was dead and the position was left vacant... but he actually didn't die; he just spent a lot of time recovering off-screen.
    • The seat for Minister of Whipped Cream is (possibly) currently vacant because Opera is apparently killed by Big Mom trying to save his own ass.
    • The seat for Minster of Cacao Island seat is also vacant because its previous holder, Lola, ran away from a political marriage to Marry for Love. Lola's sister, Charlotte Pudding, was expected by her family to take up the seat as a replacement because of her chocolatier skills, but Pudding kept refusing it because she always saw Lola as the person best suited for the job, and hoped Lola will come back home to reclaim it one day.
  • Terrible Trio: Beside the obvious Three Sweet Commanders, the triplet brothers Katakuri, Daikufu and Oven stand out with Katakuri being the strongest Sweet Commanders, and Daikufu and Oven all listed as "Monster". Smoothie also forms this with her younger sisters Cinnamon and Citron (who are eventually confirmed to be triplets).
  • This Cannot Be!: In the climax of the arc, after the Germa 66 come to aid Luffy and Sanji, Brûlée informs the Big Mom Pirates of Luffy's victory against Katakuri. Needless to say, everyone is shocked that their top Sweet Commander was beaten, first denying it and accusing Brûlée of lying, and then accusing Luffy of using some kind of dirty trick to win and tarnishing Katakuri's honor. After the latter, they start redoubling their efforts to kill him and Sanji... which just made them bigger targets for the Vinsmokes who proceed to utterly decimate them.
  • Visual Pun: Some family members are inhumanly large, much like their mother, and behave like Smug Supers - they look down on everyone (including their enemies).
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Like his younger brother and fellow Minister, Cracker, Oven wears a cape and nothing else from the waist up.
  • When Trees Attack: The trees of the Seducing Woods are alive thanks to Big Mom's powers and are tasked to keep any intruders trapped in.

Executives

    General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charlotte_family.png
"My word...truly, a big mom!"Brook

"The foundation and infrastructure for the Big Mom Pirates crew is built around our real, actual family!"
Charlotte Pudding

The majority of children of the Charlottes who are in the crew assume positions as executives. Three in particular are the Three Sweet Commanders, which you can see their page here. Due to the sheer size of the crew, only the most notable members of the Charlotte Family are detailed below. However, a full list of the 85 Charlotte children can be found here:

  • Sons note 
  • Daughters note 
  • Ministers of Totto Land note 


  • Always Identical Twins: Among Big Mom's children, there are eleven sets of twins (five sets of girls, five sets of boys and a boy-girl pair). Each pair either plays this trope straight or averts it. These are:
    • Chiffon and Lola are identical twins who look very much like one another. Because of this Big Mom attempted to pass Chiffon off for Lola when the latter ran away from her arranged marriage with the prince of the Elbaf giants, Loki. This scheme failed and along with branding Lola a criminal, an enraged Big Mom started beating Chiffon whenever they met on the reason that Chiffon shares the same face with the daughter that ruined a golden opportunity for Big Mom.
    • Mascarpone and Joscarpone avert this trope by being fraternal twins. While both are of the long neck tribe, are often seen together, and have very similar names with Joscarpone's being in Japanese essentially the female version of her brother's, these twin brother and sister look different enough from one another to be able to tell them apart.
    • Dolce and Dragee are Big Mom's two youngest sons and have a fondness for balloons. They look very uncannily like one another and are clearly identical twins.
    • According to an SBS from Volume 88 of the manga, the panda hat wearing girl seen during the wedding is named Poire, and she's the younger twin sister of Galette. These two being twins is very much not obvious as both of them look completely different from one another, save for both having magenta-colored hair, thus averting this trope.
    • Volume 4 of the One Piece Magazine identifies Praline the hammerhead shark mermaid as the younger twin of Prim, an octopus mermaid.
    • Volume 5 of the One Piece Magazine reveals new sets of fraternal twins, averting this trope:
      • Brûlée and Broyé are identified as fraternal twins. Despite their differences, it's implied that they looked similar as children until Brûlée had her face horribly scarred by a particularly spiteful group of bullies, preventing her from aging as gracefully as her twin and her other sisters.
      • Compo and Laurin are fraternal twin brothers. Their most prominent traits would be which facial parts they cover (Compo covers his mouth completely with a bandanna yet shows his eyes and sunglasses; Laurin exposes his mouth yet his "eyes" are covered, being on his skull-marked hat instead).
      • High-Fat and Tablet are fraternal twin brothers. Aside from the obvious differences (High-Fat wears some armor and has a mustache, Tablet lets his hair get wild and has no mustache), their status as fraternal siblings is exaggerated to the point where Tablet looks young enough to be mistaken as High-Fat's son, despite both being 36 years old.
      • Saint-Marc and Basans are fraternal twin brothers. Saint-Marc is a large, hulking figure dressed up like a knight, while Basans is a man who wears a white hoodie and has several antlers on his head. Furthermore, while Basans is named after food like most of his siblings, Saint-Marc is named after a Japanese cafe company, Saint Marc Holdings.
      • Former Sweet Commander Snack and Bavarois are fraternal twin brothers. Snack is huge, dark-haired and keeps his hair styled in the form of dango buns; while the blond Bavarois has dreadlocks, a mustache-goatee combo, and looks like a boxer.
      • Mariner and Mozart are fraternal twin sisters. While both have outlandish hair and wear a Badass Cape of their own, Mariner's cape is much shorter than Mozart's, and has a checkered afro, while Mozart's hair resembles large rabbit ears.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: As Big Mom is the queen of Totto Land and also one of the Four Emperors, most of her family are automatically princes and princesses by default. Even Pudding, though she didn't start out that way. The exception seems to be Praline and Chiffon.
  • Armor-Piercing Attack: The family is in possession of "Candy Jacket" bullets, which allow them to penetrate thick walls and armored soldiers, including the modified skeletons of the Vinsmoke children, as Pudding demonstrated to Reiju. They're first seen used against Germa 66 in Chapter 900, to deadly effect.
  • Arranged Marriage: Most of Big Mom's children were set up to marry strong people so they can produce offspring that will strengthen both her crew and the family's influence, like with Praline, with her husband Aladdin of the Sun Pirates; and Chiffon, with her husband Capone Bege of the Firetank Pirates. So far, these marriages have been shown to be very loving. One of Big Mom's daughters, Lola, defied this by running away from home and finding love on her own terms (though she's yet to find someone who'll accept her proposals). It's also subverted with Pudding and Sanji, who would've been in a Perfectly Arranged Marriage if it weren't for Sanji's dream of finding the All Blue, his loyalties to the Straw Hat Pirates, and the no longer shy and innocent Pudding was only pretending to be a nice girl and plans on murdering him and rest of the Vinsmokes on their wedding day.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Those of Big Mom's children who are Ministers often have a theme that relate to the islands they govern. It can also apply to those who are not Ministers.
    • Charlotte Dolce and his brother Dragée have very round bodies, and their favorite thing is balloons. Their favorite hobby is to float around using balloons.
    • Charlotte Citron is the Minister of Eggs, and has a rotund, egg-shaped body, which resulted from her gluttony of sweets.
  • Badass Family: Invoked - Big Mom married 43 husbands, mothered 85 children, and arranged them to marry strong people in order to strengthen her crew and their influence. Many of said children (twelve identified) are Devil Fruit Users with very high bounties, such as Big Mom's Sweet Commanders. Unfortunately, their collective dysfunction renders them incompetent as a team.
  • Balloonacy: Charlotte Dolce and his brother Dragée love balloons so much that they often use them to float in the air. Their sister Anana loves tormenting them by using knives to pop their balloons.
  • Bastard Bastard: According to Oda in SBS 90, Big Mom kidnapped her husbands to have children with them, and threw them away once they served their purpose. This would make the all the children in Big Mom's biological family maternal half-siblings, with most of them being fanatically loyal to their mother. The enforced absences of their fathers due to not being related by blood only enabled their insanity.
  • Beauty Is Bad: Generally, any Charlotte who is beautiful and loyal to Big Mom are evil, especially the women.
  • Big Brother Instinct: As messed up they are, some of Big Mom's crew/family have a degree of familial love towards their siblings, brother or sister, and will do anything to protect them if they're in danger. Going after said siblings is a big no-no.
  • Big Brother Worship: Most of the Charlottes see Katakuri as The Paragon and the symbol of duty, power, dependability, and perfection. Brûlée sings him her praises, much to Katakuri's exasperation, while young Flampe, the 36th daughter, is the leader of the Katakuri Fan Club, and loves him so much that she competes with her other siblings for his attention, and was willing to interfere with the fight with Luffy just to protect Katakuri's "perfect" status. In the end, while Flampe's worship was shown to be superficial, Brûlée still adores her big brother despite knowing of his flaws.
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: What the Charlotte family actually is behind closed doors.
    • While they act like charitable hosts and they do seem to care for each other, most of them are criminally insane as their mother, Big Mom, no thanks to her terrible parenting, her willingness to attack her own children if they get in her way (like Charlotte Moscato and Charlotte Opera), and Control Freak tendencies. Those children working under her are fearful of receiving You Have Failed Me from her if they screw up, which resulted in some like Opera lying about Luffy and Nami's escape from captivity.
    • Two of her daughters, Praline and Chiffon, are more loyal to their husbands than Big Mom with Praline essentially jumping ship with her husband's crew despite knowing the severe consequences for doing so, and Chiffon supporting Bege's assassination plan because of all the abuse Big Mom heaped on her for being the identical twin sister of the runaway Lola, whom Big Mom despises with a passion, and because she wants Lola to be safe.
    • Pudding, who is supposedly one of Big Mom's favorites and supports her plans, Used to Be a Sweet Kid but became a sadistic and cunning psychopath because of both Big Mom and the other children ridiculing her Third Eye, and is frustrated with her mother treating her like a convenient tool than her child.
    • Katakuri, who would become a deadly Sweet Commander and his family's "ace in the hole" if things go south, was also bullied for having a fanged mouth, but it wasn't until Brûlée became a target through Revenge by Proxy that he hid all of his "weaknesses" in order to become his family's sole protector, which is psychologically unhealthy and inflicts incredible stress on his mind.
    • Because the family disdains having the children's fathers around due to not being related by blood, many of the Charlottes grew up without someone to raise them right, curb their collective issues, or give them at least something resembling a moral compass, which became a major part of the reason why the family's so screwed up.
  • Blade on a Stick: Mascarpone and his twin sister Joscarpone both wield naginatas, a Japanese bladed spear, though they do use bows and arrows later.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Justified; the younger siblings' behaviors seem to have come from growing up spoiled without good parental guidance, resulting in dysfunctional behavior even in the youngest children, who are still kids.
  • Bystander Syndrome:
    • It's implied that none of Chiffon's older and younger siblings stepped in to help her whenever she would receive horrific abuse from Big Mom for looking like her twin sister, Lola, despite knowing what's going on. It's what drove her to cut ties from her family and support Bege's assassination plan.
    • As revealed in flashbacks, Pudding's family either stood by and did nothing whenever she was viciously bullied for having a Third Eye, or participated in the ridicule themselves. This led to her snapping and becoming the duplicitous, sadistic person she is.
  • Cain and Abel: Generally what happens if a sibling betrays the family in some way. After Lola betrayed Big Mom by running away from a political marriage with Loki, her older brothers and sisters agree with Big Mom's plan to have Lola assassinated, despite previously showing concern that she died overseas. And after sisters Chiffon and Praline started actively helping the Straw Hats via assassination and hindering their siblings' pursuit, respectively, they were added to the family's hit-list as well.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Thanks to the nature of how they were raised by Big Mom, the Charlotte Family as a whole has duplicity down to an art, to the point that it might as well be in their blood. Throughout the entirety of the Whole Cake Island arc, every member of the family has, collectively or individually, justifiably or not, stabbed another in the back at least once, be they a prospective ally, a secret enemy, or even each other. The family seems to be aware of it too, which creates a sense of distrust among them that contributes to their inability to work together as a team.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Considering how much of a glutton Big Mom is, it's not a suprise she named nearly all of her children after food, drink, cooking, or eating, though they range from the obvious (Cracker, Raisin) to the obscure (Montd'Or, Amande).
  • Establishing Character Moment: Katakuri and his triplet brothers, Daifuku and Oven, utterly decimating Jigra and his allies while advising them to "know [your] place" in the Episode 830 says a lot about most of the family; they look down on everyone that isn't them.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • Totto Land's Ministers Opera, Mont-d'Or and Galette cared greatly for Moscato, and were greatly shaken when they witnessed Big Mom rip out 40 years of his lifespan (he got better, fortunately). Chapter 845 has the three being part of the many participants in the manhunt for Luffy, the defeater of their brother and fellow Minister Cracker.
    • In chapter 846, when Big Mom's army discovers the Straw Hat Pirates had Lola's Vivre Card, they immediately worry that Lola had been killed and ask for her last words. Nami insists that nothing of the sort happened and Lola is the Straw Hats' ally. Then it's subverted when a few members of said army, who also happen to be a few of Lola's biological brothers and sisters, accept Big Mom's plan to assassinate her, with Opera preparing to torture Nami for information had Jimbei not walked in.
  • Evil Redhead: Like Oven, Charlotte Basskarte has bright orange hair, though his isn't in a gradient like Oven's is. It matches his affinity for fire, and he's loyal to Big Mom.
  • Family Theme Naming: Big Mom's children are named after specific types of food and drinks. Lola, the runaway 23rd daughter who is mostly treated as the family outcast, averts this with her non-food name. However, in a specific case, those who were born twins/triplets/quadruplets/etc. also have similar names that connect them with their siblings.
    • Triplets Katakuri, Daifuku, and Oven are named after things that could have food inside. Katakuri and Daifuku are named after mochi, which sometimes have food fillings, and Oven is named after a kitchen appliance that bakes whatever is put inside it.
    • Smoothie is named after a blended drink. Her younger triplet sisters, Cinnamon and Citron, are named after smoothie flavorings.
    • The female half of the Charlotte decuplets have names that end with the word "-meg", and are also puns based on the nutmeg spice. Their names are also based off of prefixes for the four seasons, with Allmeg referring to all seasons.
    • Opera and his quintuplet brothers are named after musical terms (Opera, Counter, Cadenza, Cabaletta, Gala).
    • Fraternal twins Mascarpone and Joscarpone are named after a type of Italian cheese; as mentioned above, Joscarpone's name is the female version of her brother's name.
    • Amande and her fraternal quadruplet sisters Mondée, Hachée and Effilée are named after almonds and the French terms for the methods used to prepare them (Mondée means "bleached", Hachée means "diced", and Effilée means "flaked").
    • Galette and her twin sister Poire are named after pear butter.
  • Freudian Excuse:
    • In general, some of the Charlotte family's dysfunction is rooted in how Big Mom raised them and how she herself was raised by Mother Carmel, who only enabled her worst traits through forgiveness without proper discipline.
    • On a related note, it also implied in Chiffon and Pudding's cases that the reason why the Charlotte family's political marriages worked so well is because they found the love that their own family couldn't give them, resulting in Big Mom's daughters falling deep in love with their husbands.
    • The creation of the Charlotte family, with many sons and daughters inheriting the genes of their fathers' races, is one part of Big Mom's Freudian Excuse - she wanted to recreate her beloved interracial family of orphans that mysteriously vanished on her 6th birthday, leaving her all alone.
  • Glasgow Grin: Charlotte Poire looks like she has one as she's constantly smiling, but it's subverted as the ends of her grinning mouth happen to connect to the stitches of her panda hat.
  • Guns Akimbo: Charlotte Effilée fights with dual pistols, to fit with her western cowboy motif.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Invoked. At least nine of Big Mom's husbands came from other fantastic races in the verse (three snakenecks, two merfolk/fish-men, a longleg, a longarm, a dwarf and a three-eye), resulting in nineteen confirmed hybrid children (four sons and fifteen daughters). This is partly due to Big Mom's desire to create strong children and partly wanting diversity in her family which is later revealed to have stemmed from once living with a large family of orphans who came from different races.
  • Happily Married: The two Arranged Marriages we've seen so far (Chiffon and Capone Bege, Praline and Aladdin of the Sun Pirates) are quite happy, with the wives so devoted their husbands that they are willing to side with them over Big Mom any day, Chiffon with good reason.
  • Hoist by Their Own Petard:
    • Thought bullying one of your relatives for having an abnormal physical trait was a good idea? No, it wasn't. Because Pudding was bullied all her life for having a third eye by her own family, being shown kindness for the first time affected her so deeply that she had an emotional breakdown, which ultimately screwed up the plans to kill the Vinsmokes, and ended up falling in love with the person she was supposed to kill (Sanji). Aka, the exact opposite of what Big Mom and crew were hoping for.
    • Thought standing by and watching while one of your siblings is horrifically abused by a parent for trivial reasons was a good idea? No, it wasn't. Because Chiffon was basically used as a punching bag by Big Mom to vent her anger towards the runaway Lola, on virtue of them being identical twins with the same face, Chiffon cut off all ties with her family and supported Bege's plan to assassinate her mother. When Brûlée discovers this, she pleads for her sister to reconsider. Chiffon retorts that she knew what happened yet did nothing, and declares the Firetank Pirates to be her family now.
  • Hypocrite:
    • Despite Big Mom believing in a utopia of all races, and the entire family containing half-human hybrids, some won't hesitate to shun and bully those they view as "ugly", which is telling because a majority of the family have freakish appearances themselves; even Big Mom should be considered "freakish" by virtue of her abnormally large size. Pudding was tormented all her childhood for having three eyes, and Katakuri, a feared Sweet Commander, was revealed to have gone through the same thing when he was younger for having a mouth like a pelican eel (though he initially didn't care until Brûlée got scarred in a Revenge by Proxy). The latter even had to endure the same ridicule again as an adult from his own sister, Flampe, who claimed to be his biggest fan, after she sees his mouth for the first time, which triggered his childhood memories as Flampe and her crew humiliate him.
    • Despite a majority of the family having some affection for each other and viciously attacking those who hurt their siblings, they didn't protect Chiffon from Big Mom's horrific abuse, and wholeheartedly advocate the killing of family "traitors" as shown with their relationship with the runaway Lola.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag:
    • Chiffon and Lola are identical twin sisters who share the same Gonky face. To tell them apart, Chiffon has Girlish Pigtails and a hair bow, while Lola has braids (though she did have a bob cut and a bow like her sister before she ran away).
    • According to an SBS issue, Opera is the oldest of male identical quintuplets. The only ways they could be told apart from each other is by the number of hair tufts on their head (Counter has one, Cadenza has two, and so on), and the fact that Opera is a human-looking Blob Monster made of cream while his brothers have Badass Beards.
    • Averted for Katakuri, Daifuku, and Oven who were revealed to be triplets in SBS 87. Aside from their massive statures, each around 16 feet tall, they share very little in common in terms of appearance.
    • Averted again with Galette and Poire, who are revealed to be twin sisters. Aside from the deep maroon hair and penchant for wearing Coat Capes, they look nothing alike.
  • In the Blood: Many of Big Mom's children share her blood lust and sadistic tendencies, and in general, they all seem to enjoy the violence and mayhem their positions allow them to engage in.
  • In the Hood: Charlotte Wafers, Big Mom's 36th daughter who's seen hiding behind a pillar in the chateau, wears a polka-dotted cloak with a hood. The anime colors it as white with blue dots.
  • Ironic Name: In general, despite being named after food, the Charlotte Family is mostly a homicidally insane bunch.
    • Anglaise tries to look cool and tough by acting like a Greaser. But his name comes from crème anglaise, a sweet custard sauce. The cute caterpillar he rides as a motorcycle doesn't help his image much.
    • Angel, Big Mom's 7th daughter, is named after angel food cake, but is fanatically loyal to Big Mom.
    • Snack, a former Sweet Commander named for a small portion of food, is gigantic.
  • Large and in Charge: Thanks to Big Mom's genetics, almost all of her children are abnormally tall, and it's certainly fitting considering the sheer political power and firepower the crew has in the world.
  • Like Father, Like Son: Some of Big Mom's older children are utterly loyal to their mother and antagonizing the Straw Hat Pirates; her oldest son Perospero especially shares her love of sweets, while one of her youngest daughters has her homicidal and sadistic tendencies.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son:
    • Most of the younger children play it straight by being more decent, reasonable, and often physically attractive.
    • Two of Big Mom's daughters who have been seen in Arranged Marriages are very loving and supportive of their husbands. In contrast, Big Mom only sees her husbands as sperm banks and discards them as soon as they served their purpose.
  • Mafia Princess: Big Mom's daughters are usually treated like this, i.e being pampered with wealth and money but not having much choice in their lives. While it's subverted in that most of them are very loyal to Big Mom, a few play it straight. Lola escaped that life years ago when she was set up for an important Arranged Marriage with the giant prince, Loki. So do Lola's twin sister Chiffon, and their younger sister Praline, who both jump ship later.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: Big Mom has had 85 children with 43 husbands over the course of 42 years, with at least one child born every single year during that period. Furthermore, there were twenty-one cases of multiple births among them... one set of decuplets (ten children at once - five boys and five girls), one set of quintuplets (all boys), two sets of quadruplets (one set of four girls and a set of one boy and three girls), six sets of triplets (three all male, one all female and two with one boy and two girls each) and eleven sets of twins (five all-boy pairs, five all-girl pairs and a mixed pair), totaling sixty-three out of the eighty-five. Plus twenty-two single births (thirteen boys and nine girls).
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: In the anime, Basskarte's mouth when uncovered is basically two rows of sharp teeth. It's not a pleasant sight.
  • Nice Hat: Poire wears a panda hat with stitches that makes her grinning mouth look like a Glasgow Grin.
  • Older Than They Look: Zigzagged. Many of Big Mom's children look very attractive and physically fit despite being well into their 40s, possibly due to spending their lives serving as Big Mom's governors/fighters, though some don't fit the trend. Charlotte Anglaise, according to an SBS issue, is stated to be 14 years old. Yet due to the art style, he looks like a little kid.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: Charlotte Normande, Big Mom's 38th daughter, is a tiny girl who resembles a fairy with her butterfly wings, but she's actually a human-dwarf hybrid.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Charlotte Poire has a wide-mouth grin full of sharp teeth that resembles a Glasgow Grin even while displaying other emotions, to contrast her twin sister Galette who's The Stoic.
  • Playing with Fire: Like his older brother, Oven, Charlotte Basskarte has fire powers of the fireball-throwing and fire-breathing variety.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Sisters Citrus and Cinnamon have very long hair, with Citrus's being longer than Smoothie's. The thing is, it would've counted as Rapunzel Hair if they weren't so dang tall.
  • Royally Screwed Up: Just like their former allies, the Vinsmokes, the Charlotte family is this. Big Mom's poor parenting and the social stigmatization of her children's fathers as outsiders led to her children becoming dysfunctional, with distrust and duplicity running in their blood. Charlottes born "ugly" are fair game for bullying as Pudding and Katakuri found out, and those who betray Big Mom are deemed traitors who are better off dead. Due to Big Mom's insanity and penchant for destruction, her children are also afraid of invoking her wrath in any way.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: As in the case of Always Identical Twins above, there are a lot of identical/fraternal siblings born in Big Mom's family, with varying numbers. Most of them subvert the trope due to looking different from each other in some way, which is Truth in Television.
    • Sweet Commander Katakuri, and his younger brothers Daifuku and Oven, are revealed in an SBS issue to be a set of male triplets. It's also subverted because aside from the massive height, they look nothing alike.
    • Opera and his brothers Counter, Cadenza, Cabaletta, and Gala play it straighter by being male identical quintuplets. The only way to tell them apart is Opera's creamy appearance, Counter's mustache, and the number of hair tufts on their dotted heads.
    • Smoothie, Citron, and Cinnamon are confirmed to be triplets and longleg hybrids. Like Katakuri and his triplet brothers though, it's subverted as apart from their long legs, they look different from one another.
    • Played with in the Charlotte decuplets. Half of the decuplets are boys while the other half are girls. The 5 boys all have very similar appearances, save for Newsan being nearly twice his brothers' height, and wear matching clothes. The 5 girls each have slight variations in how they style their hair and in their clothing but otherwise look the same, save for Harumeg being nearly twice her sisters' height. Essentially, the decuplets consists of two pairs of identical quintuplets.
    • According to volume 4 of the One Piece Magazine, Mondée, Amande, Hachée and Effilée are quadruplets (and Snakeneck tribe hybrids). However, they have distinct differences: Mondée is very heavyset and not long-necked at all, making her closer in looks to her older sister Compote. Amande, Hachée and Effilée are much closer in appearance, however.
    • As revealed in volume 5 of the One Piece Magazine, Charlotte Mobile, Marble, Myukuru and Maple are a mix - Marble and Myukuru have very similar appearances, but their quadruplet brother and sister are very different in looks.
    • Subverted by the trio of Moscato, Mash and Cornstarch, with Moscato being the only male of the triplets. The same goes for Cracker and his triplet sisters Custard and Angel.
    • Also subverted by the trio of Nusstorte, Basskarte and Dosmarche, who look nothing alike aside from height.
    • Subverted with Kanten, Kato, and Montb, who are fraternal triplets. Kanten and Montb are quite heavyset, while their skinny brother Kato is... a scarecrow-like human.
  • Shared Family Quirks: A few of Big Mom's children were shown to have inherited some facets of her personality, such as her homicidal insanity and eating habits. Charlotte Anana is a prime example, despite looking nothing like her mother physically.
  • Smug Super: A whole family of them. Due to their mighty power and brutal efficiency with their enemies, all of them have developed this douchey confidence that they can steamroll through any opposition easily, which is encouraged massively by the successes of Katakuri, The Ace of the family. This ends up biting them in their collective asses numerous times, as they are not only blindsided by skilled, fresh-blooded opponents like the Straw Hats, but also benevolent relatives who work to sabotage their family's efforts from within. Katakuri himself makes a point to defy this trope, which explains why he's so successful as a fighter. This is because when he was younger, his recklessness caused Brulee to get attacked and scarred by the same bullies he beat up. He blamed himself for the incident ever since.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Many of Big Mom's children have food-related names that also tie in with their food-related Devil Fruit powers or the food they're minister of.
  • Strong Family Resemblance:
    • Two of Big Mom's youngest sons Dolce and Dragée resemble each other so much, you'd think they could be identical twins. (And they are.)
    • Aside from the facial scarring, Brûlée looks like a (very) thin version of her mother.
    • Chiffon's infant son, Pez, heavily resembles his father, Capone Bege of the Firetank Pirates, complete with hat, stubble, and cigar. (Though the cigar's just a pacifier.) He also has his mother's hair.
  • Teens Are Monsters: Some of Big Mom's children who are in their teenage years can be bratty and selfish at minimum, and monstrous at best. Justified, because of the toxic, dysfunctional environment they were raised in.
    • Parodied with Charlotte Angliase, tries really hard to be a Greaser, yet he rides a cute caterpillar motorcycle, and his idea of delinquency was not brushing teeth before bed, so he comes across as little more than a Bratty Half-Pint. There's also the fact that he tattles on Brook to his older siblings, like how a little kid tells a parent their sibling is stealing cookies for themselves.
    • Flampe, despite being the founder of Katakuri's fan club, is determined to be the "favorite" sister that Katakuri loves so she could be the sole recipient of his affections. But that changes when Katakuri willingly reveals his hidden fanged mouth out of anger for interfering with his fight with Luffy. Flampe cruelly rejects and humiliates her half-brother after seeing his "real" side, which motivates him and Luffy to knock her out with Conqueror's Haki without regret.
    • Zigzagged with Pudding. She's a sweet-hearted girl who seemingly lets Chopper and Luffy get away with eating a chocolate building, only getting angry that they didn't eat it all. Her niceness is actually a facade to hide the sadistically broken person she is underneath due to severe childhood trauma. Once Sanji gives her her first taste of compassion, Pudding truly becomes nice and helps the Straw Hats escape Totto Land.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Those of Big Mom's daughters revealed to be officially married so far (Praline with Aladdin, and Chiffon with Capone Bege) are larger than their husbands.
  • Token Good Teammate: A few of Big Mom's children are shown to have kindhearted personalities unlike the rest of their family, such as Chiffon and her identical twin sister Lola, their younger sister Praline, and their not-deceased brother Moscato. The former two have no loyalties to Big Mom and betray their mother by jumping ship when the chance presented itself. Katakuri also proves himself to be one - despite being a Sweet Commander who's loyal to Big Mom, Katakuri carries a high sense of honor, doesn't let himself become arrogant from his victories, and is protective of his family to the point where he massacred the bullies who horrifically scarred Brulee's face as a child.
  • Tragic Villain: Many of Big Mom's children are fanatically loyal to her, but it's implied that their loyalties are based on fear of what she would do if they fail or betray her in some way. It's also implied that Big Mom's terrible parenting and her insanity rubbed off on her children in ways that each sibling remain inherently distrustful of each other, which explains why they're unable to cooperate together as a team, despite their outward love for each other.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Zigzagged. While most of Big Mom's younger and older children are very attractive or at least decent-looking, some look as ugly as their mother. Her son and Sweet Commander, Charlotte Cracker in particular, only looks completely Gonk when he dons his Biscuit armor - his real face on the other hand, while not exactly pretty, isn't outright repulsive, either.
  • The Unfavorite: The fate of those children who piss off their mother, Big Mom, in a majorly huge way.This happened to Lola, who was targeted for assassination after she ran away from a political marriage with the giant prince, Loki, and her twin sister Chiffon, who was sent in her place and when the switch failed, she was constantly beaten black and blue by Big Mom whenever they met each other, all because she looked like Lola. The kicker is that Lola remains oblivious to her family's hatred and believes that her mother still loves her, but Chiffon correctly believes her sister wouldn't last if she comes back home.
  • Unfortunate Names: Charlotte High-Fat, who's named after a food's fatty content.
  • Warrior Prince: The majority of Big Mom's sons seen so far are Devil Fruit users and capable fighters.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: The anime paints the hair of some of Big Mom's children with some very bright colors. Charlotte Galette is revealed to have magenta-pink hair, as of Episode 788 (and her twin Poire has the same color).
  • You're Not My Father: Due to Big Mom teaching her kids that their fathers are outsiders and therefore not "true" family, some of them treat their fathers with absolute disdain, as seen with Cracker and his interactions with his stepfather, Pound.

Sons

    Charlotte Perospero 

Charlotte Perospero

Voiced by: Yuya Uchida

Age: 50

Birthday: March 14th

Bounty: 700,000,000 Berries

Debut: Chapter 834 (Manga), Episode 795 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Lick-Lick Fruit

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

"I'm no candy-man myself... you must've thought me sweeter than I am!"

The first son and eldest child of the Charlotte Family, Perospero is also Totto Land's Minister of Candy. He has eaten the Lick-Lick Fruit (Pero Pero no Mi), a Paramecia that allows him to create and manipulate candy.

He has a bounty of 700,000,000 berries.


  • Adult Fear: As a kid, he tried convincing Katakuri to cover his mouth so he would make friends. This blew up in his face when Katakuri finally relented, but after they found their younger sister Brûlée arrived home on a stretcher, with a huge, bleeding, ugly gash on her face. Katakuri, who previously didn't care about his looks or eating habits, hid everything about himself so he could be the protector his family needs, at the cost of his own sanity.
  • Affably Evil: Perospero frequently indulges the children that live on Totto Land by letting them eat his candy, when he's not busy turning people into candy.
  • An Arm and a Leg: He survived Pedro's Heroic Sacrifice, but lost his right arm in the process. He isn't too affected by it, however, since he can just make a replacement arm with his candy powers.
  • Artificial Limbs: After losing his arm to Pedro, he uses his power to create a prosthetic arm made of candy to replace it. It doesn't last long since he suffers of infections from the wounds and needs first aid.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Perospero serves as Candy Island's governor, the Minister of Candy. His powers and clothes are candy-themed, and he likes eating candy.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: As a child, he wanted Katakuri to hide his mouth so his brother could make friends. Katakuri eventually relented, but it came at the cost of their sister Brulee being attacked and horribly scarred by a group of bullies.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He angrily commands a fleeing Luffy to unhand Brûlée as he tries to retrieve his sister with his candy powers. Justified, as he discovered Brûlée was horribly scarred by Katakuri's bullies as a kid.
  • Bright Is Not Good: His outfit is very brightly colored, but he is an evil Minister working for Big Mom and a cannibal who eats people after turning them into candy.
  • Catch-22 Dilemma: After he's forced to leave Big Mom to get his injury treated. He tells Mont-D-Or that there's nothing he can do to stop Big Mom from eating the cake and will result in on of three outcomes. 1) The cake is poisoned and she dies from it, leaving their leader and mother dead and ending the Big Mom Pirates. 2) It isn't poisoned, but she doesn't like it and will continue her rampage which will cause their territory fall (and, considered how skinny Big Mom is now, she'll likely burn out from hunger and exhaustion) which again will be the end of their crew or 3) It isn't poisoned, she'll like the cake and cease her rampage completely, which he considers will be nothing short of a miracle. Fortunately for everyone in his family, the cake tasted extremely delicious, which was exactly how Big Mom expects it to. Unfortunately for the Straw Hats, that won't stop Big Mom from going after them still, now with the intent of stealing Luffy's soul and making new powerful Homies with it.
  • Didn't See That Coming:
    • He totally doesn't expect Pedro coming at him while covered in explosives, intending to take him out with a suicide attack.
    • He totally doesn't expect the still hungry and rampaging Big Mom making a complete detour to Nuts Island in search for her desired wedding cake. Thus, he and his sister Amande desperately try to stop Big Mom from completely destroying Nuts Island.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: As a child, he's shown to be greatly distraught after he and Katakuri learn their younger sister Brûlée was violently scarred in the face by Katakuri's bullies.
  • Evil Gloating: Perospero holds off on killing the Vinsmoke Family just so he can brag to Judge about how he's got them dead-to-rights. Naturally, he spends a little too much time on the gloating before Big Mom's scream, taking him and the other executors down, and the Straw Hats (who have ear protection) manage to save them. He does so again when he encases Chopper and Brook in his Candy Man technique, leaving him blind to an approaching bomb-strapped Pedro.
  • Evil Laugh: His Signature Laugh, "Kukukuku".
  • Expy: Perospero, to Willy Wonka. Both of their occupations and themes revolve entirely around sweets, and are creators of candy-making factories. Both also wear Nice Hats and are sharply dressed.
  • Femme Fatalons: While male, Perospero sports classically evil long and darkly-coloured nails, enhancing his appearance of an evil sorcerer.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Like his younger brother Cracker's devil fruit, Perospero's ability to produce candy at will may not seem threatening, but he uses it to create a vast array of objects and devices such as a laboratory, escalator, and an iron maiden, and more terrifyingly, allows him to encase and even completely convert captured victims into edible candy for him to consume.
  • Hidden Depths: He and a few other siblings know what Katakuri's truly like underneath the stoic facade he puts on, having grown up with him as kids. While he tolerated Katakuri's eating habits, he did try encourage him to make friends, which Katakuri rebuffed.
  • Hide Your Otherness: As children, he tried telling Katakuri to hide his fanged mouth so his brother could make friends, but was rebuffed. Katakuri eventually relented and hid his mouth with a scarf, but only after Brulee was attacked and horribly scarred by bullies.
  • High Collar of Doom: Perospero's coat has a high collar that's reminiscent of a candy wrapper. He's also a supporter of his mother Big Mom, and while his candy-themed power by itself isn't evil, his use for it regarding people is.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Perospero's Devil Fruit power allows him to turn people into candy and eat them. He threatens Caesar Clown with this fate if he doesn't produce the giantification formula for Big Mom in two weeks. He also attempts to turn Chopper and Brook into candies as well.
  • Informed Ability: In Chapter 878, after narrowly surviving Pedro's suicide bombing, Perospero mentions that the explosion completely shattered his candy armor. Before this, it was never revealed that he could even do this, nor is it shown afterwards, aside from the fact that he replaced his right arm with one made of candy.
  • It's Personal: After Pedro blows his arm off, taking out the Straw Hats goes from simply a mission objective to a vengeful desire to see them captured and tortured.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch:
    • Perospero taunting a crying man with his imminent death at the hands of Big Mom's crew would normally qualify as a Kick the Dog moment... if said man wasn't Vinsmoke Judge.
    • He ends up on the receiving end when Pedro blows himself up. It doesn't work, although it does cause him to lose an arm.
  • Lean and Mean: Perospero is a skinny and tall guy who can turn people into candy and eat them.
  • Logical Weakness: Everything he creates can be rock-hard, but at the end it's just candy. Heating it up will melt the candy, so fire can be extremely effective against him.
  • Made of Iron: Despite his lanky frame, he's every bit as tough as you'd expect a 700,000,000 berry bounty to be — he tanks Super Soldier Vinsmoke Ichiji's punches and suffers little more than a small bruise on his cheek. Most notably though, he survived Pedro's massive suicide explosion and, despite losing his arm, retained his consciousness and got back up on his feet. Still, it all catches up with him later on, and ignoring his injuries eventually leaves him unable to continue.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: He takes the loss of his right arm pretty well all things considered, only getting angry at the thought of his new candy prosthetic melting whenever he tries to drink tea, rather than the injury itself. Later on, however, he pays for it dearly, having to walk out of the fight's climax because he couldn't ignore the wounds anymore.
  • Maniac Tongue: Perospero was seen in his debut licking a candy cane with his long tongue hanging out of his mouth while sporting a sick, insane look on his face. He also can turn people into candy and eat them. Even as a child, he still had a very long tongue.
  • Mundane Utility: Perospero's candy powers are great to get rid of nuisances, as well as create large structures which are then reinforced with iron. They can also be used to decorate cream puffs, and make a working escalator.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: He's very skinny, yet can take a punch from Vinsmoke Ichiji with merely a bruise, and subdue Pedro with ease.
  • Oh, Crap!: He has a big one when he realizes that Pedro is going to do a Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Perospero's tongue is very long by human standards. It allows him to lick big candy.
  • Personality Powers: Of course, his favorite food is candy (except for peppermint candy) and has the power to create and manipulate candy.
  • Pet the Dog: He gives out lollipops to kids on Whole Cake Island and offers to let Brook and Chopper simply depart in their Shark Submarine after he believes their captain has been killed.
  • Properly Paranoid: When he learns the new wedding cake to stop Big Mom's rampage has been loaded onto Bege's ship, he attempts to lead it away from her for fear it might be poisoned. Although it really wasn't, Perospero was rightfully worried anyway, as Bege did intend to poison the cake; the only reason he didn't is because Sanji adamantly refused to let it happen.
  • Punny Name: Perospero's name is both based on the Japanese onomatopoeia for licking, "Pero pero" (his Devil Fruit's Japanese name is also Pero Pero no Mi), and an allusion to Prospero, a magician from Shakespeare's play The Tempest.
  • Reality Ensues: The injury he got from Pedro finally starts affecting him after the prolonged chase against the Straw Hats. So much so he ultimately has to leave Big Mom to be treated, helpless to stop her from eating Sanji's wedding cake, which he thinks has been poisoned. Also, replacing his recently severed arm with candy doesn't count as first-aid.
  • Sadist: Perospero loves to watch his prey squirm, while throwing in some Evil Gloating into the mix. It later bites him in the ass when he gloats for too long despite Katakuri's orders to just shoot the Vinsmokes already, giving the Straw Hat-Firetank Pirate Alliance enough time to save the Vinsmokes from certain death.
  • Sadistic Choice: From his viewpoint, he thinks the cake Sanji made is poisoned, but can't do anything to stop Big Mom from eating it. If they destroy it, Big Mom's rampage goes on unchecked with them being unable to stop her and that'll be the end of their territory. If they let her eat it and it is poisoned, then their leader is gone and the Big Mom Pirates will be finished regardless.
  • Serious Business: Perospero's reason for have a beef with the Straw Hats after he loses his arm has a lot to do with him being mad his candy substitute arm will remind him of his disgrace every time he's holding his favorite cup of black tea and the heat makes it start to melt.
  • Shared Family Quirks: Perospero shares his mother's love for sweets, if his habit of licking and candy powers are of indication.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Perospero's outfit is reminiscent of this despite it making him look like an utter whackjob. He's also quite affable to those who are not his enemies.
  • Shoulder Teammate: Being very small compared to Big Mom, he accompanies her by sitting on her shoulder as she tears off for the Straw Hats by using his candy powers so Big Mom could walk on water after the Thousand Sunny.
  • Shout-Out Theme Naming: His name, is a pun of Prospero, a character from William Shakespeare's The Tempest.
  • The Starscream: During the Wano Arc after his mother is knocked off their ship because of an attack from King, one of Kaido's Calamities, Perospero says if she is dead, they will be renamed the Perospero Pirates.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Perospero's name is a pun of "pero pero" (Japanese sound for licking). He is a Devil Fruit user who eats candy by licking them and can turn people into candy.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: His general attitude when relaying the fact he's out of the fight due to his injuries, and Big Mom has found the cake he believes poisoned and probably not tasty enough to calm her down anyways. While he isn't freaking out in any manner, nor despairing, he clearly believes they're all screwed and tells his siblings to brace themselves for the worst.
  • Verbal Tic: Sometimes ends the senteces with "Peroin♪!". Especially when he's confident.
  • Villain Ball: Despite having most of the Vinsmoke family at gunpoint, and even being urged by Katakuri to hurry and shoot them already, Perospero decides to simply keep mocking them, giving enough time for the Straw Hats to set off Big Mom's paralyzing scream.
  • Villainous Glutton: Perospero shares his mother's love for sweets and enjoys licking candies. And he can turn humans into candy by his powers, so he's basically a cannibal.
  • The Wonka: Perospero is essentially a walking Willy Wonka reference. The way he greets and behave in front of the more important visitors, complete with colorful and magical-like candy stair, really resembles Wonka. For the most part, however, despite being an obvious reference to the Trope Namer, is averted, since his personality doesn't fit at all.
  • Youngest Child Wins: Inverted. After Big Mom falls from the boat, some of her children are afraid she might be dead. Perospero claims that, if that's the case, he will be the new captain because he's the oldest child, despite the others preferring Katakuri as new captain.

Devil Fruit: Puff-Puff Fruit

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

"You screwed up, you useless klutz!! The plan goes nowhere unless he dies! You had your chance, and you failed in the moment! You're done here!!"

The third son of the Charlotte Family, Daifuku is the middle brother in a set of triplets between Katakuri and Oven. He is Totto Land's Minister of Beans, and has eaten the Puff-Puff Fruit (Hoya Hoya no Mi), a Paramecia that allows him to summon a genie by rubbing his body like a lamp.


  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Both he and Oven appear around the same time Katakuri makes his chapter debut, at the opening of the Tea Party, stomping out all of Jigra's allies. In the manga, they wouldn't appear until a chapter later.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Clearly believes in this, as when Big Mom is thought to be captured by Kaido, Daifuku contests Perospero's birthright claim to position as captain of the crew, claiming that Katakuri, as the strongest of Big Mom's children, should obviously be the first choice for captain.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: While his genie's normal size is already huge, it can grow to massive proportions rivaling or even exceeding Big Mom herself.
  • Badass Armfold: When Daifuku is given a proper introduction again after the tea party, he stands with his arms crossed and a confident smirk on his face.
  • Badass Cape: Has a small (for him, at least) but still impressive cape that makes him appear even more imposing.
  • Bald of Evil: Daifuku's head is completely shorn, and he's a loyal son and Minister to Big Mom.
  • The Brute: Shares this position with Oven. The two of them are ruthless bruisers, with Daifuku using a muscular genie that can grow to titanic sizes to hunt down and beat enemies into submission.
  • Evil Counterpart: Daifuku is a short-tempered Devil Fruit user, whose main power relies on having a very strong genie fight for him. The calm and collected Zoro uses nothing but swords and Haki to defeat his enemies.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: In the anime, his voice is low and ragged, just above a hiss. This accentuates his cold and disdainful demeanor.
  • Family Theme Naming: He and his triplet brothers Katakuri and Oven are named after things that could have food put inside. "Daifuku" is a type of mochi that has a sweet food filling.
  • Fur and Loathing: His large coat is thickly lined with fur, and Daifuku is a brutal, short-tempered man with hate for failure which not even his younger siblings are safe from.
  • Genie in a Bottle: Daifuku ate the Puff-Puff Fruit that turns him into a walking genie's lamp; he can summon a powerful, dark-skinned genie to fight for him by rubbing any part of his body.
  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: He has a short mustache, and is part of the Charlotte Family who antagonizes the Straw Hats.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Daifuku seems to possess a notably angry personality, as he harshly berated and even slapped his sister Pudding for failing to kill Sanji, which he then attempts to do himself. Even one of his genie's attacks, Maji Giren, sounds rather close to a Japanese phrase for "seriously pissed off". His rash decision to send his genie after a transformed Carrot ends up neutralizing almost his own entire fleet, rendering them sitting ducks.
  • Hidden Depths: He and a few other siblings know what Katakuri's truly like under the stoic facade he puts on, having grown up with him as kids. In a flashback, he and Oven were seen laughing as they watched Katakuri stuff his mouth with donuts.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: After Carrot rips off his ship's helm, a pissed-off Daifuku sends his genie on a rampage after her. The genie pays so little regard to its surroundings while hunting her that it ends up destroying and neutralizing much of Daifuku's fleet in the process. Even Daifuku's siblings immediately recognize how stupid his decision was.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Averted. Despite Daifuku being the middle-born of male triplets, he looks nothing like his brothers, Oven and Katakuri. The only thing they all share is their ginormous heights.
  • Large and in Charge: While he's the shortest of his triplet brothers at 489 cm/16'0.5" (Katakuri is 509 cm/16'8" and Oven is 492 cm/16'1"), Daifuku is still extremely large by human standards. By comparison, Pudding is slightly taller than his kneecaps. He's also one of oldest children of Big Mom, giving him a lot of authority in the crew, and is the Minister of Beans.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Daifuku's genie is fast and strong enough to tank Sanji, who's a formidable fighter himself. However, it was seen being subdued during the tea party fight after Yonji fights it.
  • Mundane Utility: In his anime debut, he releases his physical powerhouse of a genie servant to... open the front door of the Whole Cake Chateau, rather than waiting an extra few moments for it to be opened for him.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: After Carrot breaks off the helm of Daifuku's ship, he decides to send his genie after her. The end result is Carrot being unharmed, while Daifuku's fleet suffers heavy damage and being unable to go after the Thousand Sunny.
  • Our Genies Are Different: In Daifuku's case, he is not a genie, but the genie's lamp, and by rubbing his own body can summon a genie to fight for him. So far the genie has shown immense strength, but no magical ability.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Very rarely does he carry any expression on his face beyond pure contempt.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: He and Oven are the opposite of their older triplet brother, Katakuri, being Hot-Blooded to his calculated personality.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: So far in the story he hasn't bothered getting his own hands dirty, always relying on his genie. The sole exception is slapping Pudding for not coming through with her part of the plan.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: Averted. Despite being the middle-born of male triplets, with Katakuri and Oven being his older and younger brothers, respectively, they don't really look alike at all. Hell, Daifuku looks like he could be older than Katakuri! The only thing they share is their large heights.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Katakuri, his triplet (along with Oven). Whereas Katakuri is a cool-headed man with an extremely protective instinct for his siblings, Daifuku is quick to anger and has no compunctions punishing his sister for failure with a slap.
  • Smug Super: Shares his family's douchey confidence in their great collective strength. His default expression, when he's not looking perpetually pissed off, is that of condescending arrogance.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Daifuku is named after a type of mochi that has sweet bean fillings. Fittingly, Daifuku's "filling" is the genie created by the Devil Fruit he ate. It resides in his body and can only be summoned if he rubs himself like a genie's lamp.
  • Summon Magic: His ability allows him to produce a genie from himself, one strong enough to fight and even brutalize Sanji.
  • Terrible Trio: With Katakuri and Oven by virtue of being fraternal triplets. Their first fight together in the anime was against Jigra and his allies, which was an expanded scene on Katakuri's assassination of Jigra.
  • Tiny-Headed Behemoth: The man's goddamn huge, and his head is pretty tiny even when he's on-model; when losing detail in the background it can get silly.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Similarly to Franky's body post-Time Skip, Daifuku has a large torso and an equally large pair of shoulders, but really skinny legs.
  • The Worf Effect: When Daifuku sent his genie after Carrot the first time, it easily captured Carrot and she had to be rescued by Yonji. However, when he sends it after Carrot while she's powered up, she easily avoids the genie's attacks and cause it to damage Daifuku's fleet instead.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Daifuku slaps his little sister Pudding away despite her pleas to be given another chance after she fails to kill Sanji as planned, and attempts to do it himself.
  • You Have Failed Me: Non-fatal example. He berates Pudding by calling her a "good-for-nothing" for failing to kill Sanji, and then slaps Pudding away when she pleads for a second chance so he can finish Sanji off himself.

Charlotte Oven

Devil Fruit: Heat-Heat Fruit

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charlotte_oven_anime_0.png

"All those who defied Mama shall be burned to death!"

The fourth son of the Charlotte Family, Oven is the youngest in a set of triplets, his older brothers being Katakuri and Daifuku. He is Totto Land's Minister of Baking, and has eaten the Heat-Heat Fruit (Netsu Netsu no Mi), a Paramecia that allows him to heat up his body.


  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Like Katakuri, both he and Daifuku appear way earlier in the anime. In the manga, they don't appear until a chapter after Katakuri's debut (Chapter 860).
  • Anime Hair: He has his hair shaped like an anchor, as if he was born with an anchor for a head with a human face on it. On the other hand, his hair shape could alternatively be seen as a flame, which considering his powers and job is extremely appropriate.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: As the Minister of Baking, Oven's orange hair is in the shape of a flame and both that and his orange cape darken whenever he uses his heat powers. His gloves even resemble protective oven mitts. And on a more literal note, he shows up at the bakery where Pudding, Sanji, and company are making a new wedding cake, which also has an oven with an army ready to intercept the Straw Hats when they rendezvous at Cocoa Island.
  • Badass Beard: Has a small one, but it doesn't detract from his badassery.
  • Badass Cape: Wears an bright orange one that, appropriate to his name, darkens in color whenever he uses his heat-based powers.
  • Beard of Evil: Has a small, spiky beard, and is a loyal Minister and son of Big Mom.
  • Blade on a Stick: Oven uses a large glaive that he can heat up with his powers to make it a Flaming Sword.
  • The Brute: Shares this position with Daifuku. The two of them are ruthless bruisers, with Oven relying primarily on using devil fruit-powered punches to mercilessly beat down his opponents.
  • Burning with Anger: Courtesy of his devil fruit, his fists erupt into fiery plumes when he's angry, as seen when he confronts Chiffon over what he views as her grave treachery, and also when dealing with Pound.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to his younger sister, Chiffon, who is the Abel. He beats up and tries to kill Chiffon for supporting Bege's assassionation attempt on Big Mom, which makes Chiffon a traitor in Oven's eyes, and so he wants to makes an example of her to Totto Land. He is stopped by first a disguised Sanji, who kicks him in the face, then by Bege himself, who fires an explosive round at him from far away.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: His, Katakuri, and Daifuku's fight against Jigra and his allies in Episode 830 was hardly a "fight". To rub it in further, Oven even burns a footprint into the back of a downed man after everyone's out, saying that he should "know [your] place, loser!"
  • Evil Counterpart: Oven and Sanji both use fire, but Sanji only attacks with his feet and legs, because Zeff taught him never to use his hands in a fight. Oven, however, does; while it fits with his name and theme of oven-baked foods, Oven's use of hands is anathema to a cook, because it puts the hands at risk. When Oven tried to fire-punch Chiffon and Pound, Sanji sends him flying straight into a wall with one powerful kick.
  • Family Theme Naming: He and his triplet brothers Katakuri and Oven are named after things that could have food put inside. "Oven" is a kitchen appliance that bakes whatever is put inside its chambers.
  • Fiery Redhead: Sort of; his otherwise orange hair has a "fire" gradient, becoming red the further it goes up. That being said, he can be interpreted as a literal example, since he has heat powers and a matching temper.
  • Heat Vision: One of the abilities granted by his Devil Fruit allows him to heat things up simply by looking at them. He can use this for example to set weapons held by others on fire which causes them to drop said weapons.
  • Hidden Depths: He and a few other siblings know what Katakuri's truly like under the stoic facade he puts on, having grown up with him as kids. In a flashback, he and Daifuku were seen laughing as they watched Katakuri stuff his mouth with donuts.
  • High Collar of Doom: His cape has a standing collar, and he's a loyal son of Big Mom who is one of Totto Land's many Ministers.
  • Honor Before Reason: He states that he doesn't want to kill his own sister, but she is a traitor and the law is the law.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Averted. Despite Oven being the youngest of male triplets, he looks nothing like his older brothers, Daifuku and Katakuri. The only thing they all share is their ginormous heights.
  • I Have Your Wife: Literally. Oven kidnapped Chiffon and held her hostage so he could kill two birds with one stone - punishing the traitors who tried to kill Big Mom and anyone who helped them. Despite Chiffon's pleas for Bege to abandon her, Bege saved his wife anyway by pulling a bluff and firing an explosive round at Oven's face.
  • Kill It with Fire: He tries to kill Chiffon with his heating powers because she supported Bege's assassination attempt on Big Mom. Fortunately, both a disguised Sanji and Bege himself save her.
  • Large and in Charge: Just like his older triplet brothers, Daifuku and Katakuri, Oven is extremely large - his height was listed in an SBS issue as 492 centimeters (16'1"). A panel in Chapter 884 compared him to the people of Cacao Island when he visited, depicting him as an utter giant. That being said, he is a badass son of Big Mom much like his brothers, Katakuri in particular, and he's also a Minister.
  • Made of Iron: Oven can take Sanji's powerful kicks and an explosive round to the face from Bege, and comes out of both incidents with nothing but bloody bruises. He even walks off being run over by Capone's ship and taking a club to the back of the head so hard it broke in half on impact. And getting a hole blasted through his chest by Ichiji barely slows him down.
  • Make an Example of Them: Oven wants to kill Chiffon for supporting Bege's plans to kill Big Mom, so she can serve as an example of what happens to those who betray Big Mom. He fails, thanks to Sanji and Bege's interference.
  • Moral Myopia: Has no problem killing Pound, his step-father, but when Pound attacks him back, Oven complains about the audacity of him trying to kill his step-son.
  • No-Sell: In the anime, being trapped in chains by Jigra's allies have no effect on him, because he could just burn himself out.
  • Older Than They Look: An SBS issue reveals that Oven is 48 years old, along with his triplet brothers Daifuku and Katakuri. Despite this, Oven looks like he's in his 30s or younger.
  • Personality Powers: As the holder of the Heat-Heat Fruit, Oven is more likely to punch first instead of approaching things strategically. As stated in Revenge Before Reason below, he basically went on a rampage just to capture his own sister, Chiffon who Oven deemed a "traitor" for being involved in Bege's plans, not even caring if his actions would lead to Big Mom destroying Totto Land, the cake she wanted that was being made by Pudding being ruined, or the fact that one of his siblings who wanted to calm Big Mom down would die as collateral damage as the result of his actions.
  • Playing with Fire: Of a sort. His Devil Fruit allows him to radiate heat and make anything he touches extremely hot, as if they had been just taken out of the oven - case in point, Pedro tried attacking him with his sword and wound up scalding his hand badly because his sword overheated from touching Oven. Basically, it's similar to the anime-only Hot-Hot Fruit eaten by Don Achino.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: He and Daifuku are the opposite of their older triplet brother, Katakuri, being Hot-Blooded to his calculated personality.
  • Revenge Before Reason: He tries to kill Chiffon despite Pudding protesting that she needs their help to complete the cake that they need to keep Big Mom from laying waste to Totto Land. When Bege rescues Chiffon and they head out to sea, Oven starts to boil the ocean to kill them. That this would also kill Pudding and destroy the parts of the cake she had already made doesn't seem to matter to him.
  • Sadistic Choice: Subjects Bege to one with the kidnapping of Chiffon - if Bege tries to rescue Chiffon, everyone will be killed, making the rescue utterly pointless. On the other hand, if Bege abandons her (as Chiffon told him to), Chiffon will die, leaving his son Pez without a mother. So Bege pretends to surrender and blasts Oven in the face with an explosive round, saving Chiffon from a traitor's execution.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Katakuri, his triplet (along with Daifuku). Whereas Katakuri is a cool-headed man with an extremely protective instinct for his siblings, Oven is quick to anger (with fire powers as a bonus), and has no compunctions punishing his sister for betrayal with a traitor's execution.
  • Smug Super: Much like most his family. In the anime, he even makes it a point to burn a footprint into one of Jigra's downed allies, advising him to "know [your] place".
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Is named "Oven", and he is the Minister of Baking who has the power to heat up anything he touches.
  • Terrible Trio: With Katakuri and Daifuku by virtue of being fraternal triplets. Their first fight together in the anime was against Jigra and his allies, which was an expanded scene on Katakuri's assassination of Jigra.
  • There Was a Door: In his anime debut, while technically "using" the entrance, he chooses to simply walk through it by melting it with his Devil Fruit powers rather than waiting for it to be opened.
  • Tranquil Fury: Interestingly, his anger with Chiffon and Pound is the opposite of tranquil, with him throwing punches and occasionally yelling. However, he turns to this after he takes a cannon blast to the face from Capone Bege, which pushes him to his boiling point where he wears only a very angry Death Glare.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Oven clearly didn't think Bege would be pragmatic enough to pull a bluff and blast the shit out of him, all to save his kidnapped wife from a traitor's execution.
  • Villain Ball: His attempts to destroy Bege's vessel that was carrying the replacement wedding cake for Big Mom. Had it been destroyed, her hunger might not be sated and her wrath at losing another cake could have lead her to destroy the kingdom.
  • Visual Pun: He has orange-colored hair that resembles a fire. He's hotheaded.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Like his younger brother, Cracker, he wears a cape and absolutely nothing else underneath, showing off his sculpted chest and abs. However, this appears to be some sort of advantage, due to his Devil Fruit allowing him to heat up any part of his body, as Pedro ends up burning himself when he tries stabbing at him with his sword.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He doesn't hesitate to brutalize and try to kill his own sister, Chiffon because she supported Bege's plans to assassinate Big Mom, but Sanji and Bege save her in time.
  • You're Not My Father: Like his brother, Cracker, Oven sees and treats his stepfather, Pound, like a complete stranger due to Big Mom teaching her kids that all of their fathers are not "family" since they're not related by blood. He's even willing to beat up Pound just for showing up on Cacao Island in Chapter 884, and even kills Pound for interfering with his pursuit of Chiffon.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: A villainous example that is also subverted. He tries stopping Bege's ship with his own hands while it was on land... and promptly gets run over. While he does survive, his own subordinates had been pleading with him not to do it prior, and they were right.

Devil Fruit: Cream-Cream Fruit

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

The fifth son of the Charlotte Family and the eldest in a set of quintuplets, his younger brothers being Counter, Cadenza, Cabaletta and Gala. He is Totto Land's Minister of Whipped Cream, and has eaten the Cream-Cream Fruit (Kuri Kuri no Mi), a Paramecia that allows him to create and manipulate cream.


  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Seems very logical that the Minister of Whipped Cream's entire body is covered in cream due to his Devil Fruit. His overall brown-white appearance makes him look like a chocolate pastry with cream filling leaking out, fitting with the food/dessert theme of his family.
  • Badass Cape: Although not among the strongest of the crew, he's a tough combatant and wears a white cape.
  • Bald of Evil: He and his twin brothers are set apart by the number of hair tuffs, which increases going from the oldest to the youngest. Since he's the oldest, he doesn't have any hair tuff. He's also a member of the Big Mom pirates.
  • Beard of Evil: Has a long creamy beard, and is not a nice person.
  • Blob Monster: He ate the Kuri Kuri no Mi, a Paramecia that allows him to create all the cream he wants. He can also attack people with cream by adding "sweetness" to it, burning his foes upon contact.
  • Death by Irony: Opera lies about Jimbei freeing Luffy and Nami as he fears that Big Mom would punish him by stealing his lifespan. He ends up suffering that very fate when Big Mom goes on a hunger rampage. For extra irony, it's Opera's lying that allows the events which results in his death to transpire. It might be subverted since Moscato, who has suffered the same, is later seen alive.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He's greatly shaken after witnessing a rampaging Big Mom tear Moscato's entire lifespan out of him, and joins his siblings in forming an army to attack Luffy to avenge Cracker's defeat. It's later subverted, at least towards family "traitors" as he's willing to torture Nami for his runaway sister Lola's location, so Big Mom could send assassins after her. Fortunately, Jimbei walked in.
  • Gonk: Being a large and bald man covered in cream, he's not conventionally good looking.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: The ability to create and control whipped cream doesn't seem particularly threatening. Then it turns out he can burn people that touch it with its "sweetness".
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: According to an SBS issue, Opera is the oldest of male identical quintuplets. The only ways they could be told apart from each other is by the number of hair tufts on their head (Counter has one, Cadenza has two, and so on).
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He tries to save himself when Luffy and Nami get freed from imprisonment by Jimbei on his watch, claiming that he has burned them. Later on, he's drained of his life force in the wake of Big Mom's hunger rampage for the demolished wedding cake.
  • Offing the Offspring: He's a victim of this, as he dies for standing too close to Big Mom during another hunger rampage. As noted in Death by Irony above, what makes his death ironic is he dies sometime after lying to his siblings about failing to keep Luffy and Nami imprisoned because he feared Big Mom's wrath.
  • Oh, Crap!: When he and a few of his siblings find Cracker's unconscious battered body outside of Whole Cake Chateau, he realizes with horror that Luffy must be nearby.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: Or quintuplets, in this case. He has four younger twin brothers: Counter, Cadenza, Cabaletta, and Gala. The only way to tell them apart is Opera's creamy appearance, Counter's mustache, and the number of hair tufts on their dotted heads.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: He has a large body with long and thick arms, but very small legs. He's one of the few examples of this trope that is not a physical fighter.
  • Uncertain Doom: Considering Charlotte Moscato is shown being alive after his mother has drained forty years of his lifespan, it's possible Opera is still alive as well, since it's not clear how many of his years of life have been stolen.
  • Verbal Tic: Opera says "fa" at the end of each sentence.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He wouldn't hesitate to try torture Nami for the location of his runaway younger sister, Lola, because she ran away when she was supposed to be married, pissing off their mother majorly. Jimbei saves Nami before the torturing could actually start.
  • You Have Failed Me: Defied. He knows he would be punished for allowing Luffy and Nami to escape while he was guarding them, and lies to his siblings that he has burned them. Ironically, Big Mom steals his lifespan during her food tantrum.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charlotte_nusstorte_anime_9.png

The 12th son of the Charlotte Family and the eldest in a set of triplets, his younger brothers being Basskarte and Dosmarche. He is also Totto Land's Minister of Transport.


  • Ascended Extra: His invasion of the Germa Kingdom is shown in more detail in the anime. In the manga, the Vinsmoke siblings are seen standing triumphantly over Charlotte Nusstorte's forces, implying a Curb-Stomp Battle. In Episodes 844 and 845, Nusstorte and his forces invade the supposedly deserted Germa kingdom to retrieve the cloning technology, only for the Vinsmoke siblings to emerge and launch a surprise Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: He's his family's Minister of Transport. He's also dressed like a ship captain.
  • BFS: He wields a cutlass that is even bigger than his already large self.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: His forces suffer this against the Vinsmoke family. In the manga, it happened off-screen, with only the end results being shown. In the anime this is slightly rectified as he (and his brothers Basskarte and Dosmarche) put up a bit of a fight, yet end up defeated regardless.
  • Dressed to Plunder: He has this appearance, complete with a bicorne, buccaneer boots, mustache, and a cutlass for a weapon.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Averted. While he, Basskarte, and Dosmarche are triplet brothers, they're fraternal and thus look nothing alike, save for their large heights.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a large bicorne with a face and identical mustache to his, implying that it is a Homie like Napoleon.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: Subverted. He, Basskarte, and Dosmarche are triplet brothers, yet as mentioned above, they're fraternal and could easily be told apart.
  • Terrible Trio: With Basskarte and Dosmarche by virtue of being male fraternal triplets who are fanatically loyal to their mother.

The 16th son of the Charlotte Family and the eldest in a set of triplets, his younger sisters being Mash and Cornstarch. He is also Totto Land's Minister of Gelato.


  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Moscato is the Minister of Gelato. As such, his outfit, sword, and appearance had an ice cream motif going on. Even his blue-pink hair resembles whipped gelato somewhat.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Subverted; he shows fear in front of his gigantic Gonk of a mother (which his siblings warned him not to do) while trying to calm her down from her hunger-induced rampage, and gets forty years of his lifespan yanked out of him for his trouble. But in Chapter 901, he shows up alive and dressed in bandages while attending his siblings' naval fleet.
  • Delinquent Hair: Subverted. His blue-pink hairstyle resembles a whipped pompadour, complete with blue-pink sideburns, though he's actually not a delinquent by profession and personality.
  • Four Is Death: He's Big Mom's 16th (4x4)son. While he's unlucky enough to show fear in front of the rampaging Big Mom at the last second, and has a major part of his lifespan ripped out of him. Subverted once it turns out that he has survived, if a little banged up and sporting bandages.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Averted. He was born in a set of mix-gendered fraternal triplets; aside from the obvious (Moscato being the only male), they look nothing alike.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Moscato in particular is a Reasonable Authority Figure who, in the anime, was concerned for the safety of the general populace, and tried to calm Big Mom down when she went on a hunger-induced rampage. Physically, he's not hard on the eyes, either.
  • Multicolored Hair: Moscato's hair is half pink, half dark-blue.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: He's the only one who tries to calm down Big Mom during her hunger rampage. The reward? Having forty years of his lifespan removed for daring to get in his mother's way.
  • Offing the Offspring: Subverted. Big Mom doesn't recognize him during her hunger-induced rampage, just that he is "in the way", and rips out a large portion of his lifespan. He's later seen among his siblings in Chapter 901 dressed in bandages while pointing out the ship they sank doesn't actually belong to the Straw Hats.
  • Ornamental Weapon: He carries a sword with a ice cream cone-shaped hilt, though he never gets to use it, not that it would've helped him against a rampaging Big Mom anyway.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Moscato is the only Minister of Totto Land who's decent enough to try calm Big Mom down when she goes on a hunger-induced rampage that endangers many citizens; in the anime, he can be seen evacuating many of said citizens to safety while Big Mom terrorizes Sweet City, and saved a little girl from being trampled by Big Mom. Too bad he gets scared at the last minute and has a large part his soul ripped out of him. The local populace assumes he's dead and mourns him; among them is a young boy who cries over Moscato's body, begging him to come back.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: Averted. Moscato is the only male in a set of mix-gendered fraternal triplets, with the other two being his younger sisters, Mash and Cornstarch.
  • Spotting the Thread: He realizes that the Sun Pirates have used their own ship to make it look like all the Straw Hats have drowned, because the Straw Hats' jolly roger looks different than the Sun Pirates'. Because of that, the Sun Pirates are forced to stay behind in Totto Land, covering for the Straw Hats' escape while Jimbei, who has been newly made a Straw Hat, aids his old crew.
  • Staring Down Cthulhu: He attempts to do this when he tries to calm Big Mom down from her hunger-induced rampage, but gets scared at the last minute after he's warned not to, and gets a large part of his lifespan yanked out of him trying to flee. Kudos to him for trying, though.
  • Succession Crisis: Subverted; when Big Mom took 40 years of his lifespan and incapacitated him, it was assumed that he died, leaving his seat as the Minister of Gelato vacant. However, it turns out that he survived the terrible experience, as he appeared in Chapter 901 attending his siblings' naval fleet while covered in bandages.
  • Token Good Teammate: While he is one of Big Mom's loyal children and a Minister of Totto Land, he has a bigger moral compass compared to his mother and most of his siblings. During Big Mom's hunger-induced rampage, he tries to calm her down until someone brings her desired foods to her, but gets scared at the last minute and has most of his lifespan yanked out of him. in the anime, he helps most of the citizens evacuate Whole Cake Island as it's being destroyed, and saves a little girl after she trips from getting crushed by Big Mom's feet.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: He has a very large and bulky torso compared to his rather small head and his skinny arms and legs.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He appears in an attempt to stop Big Mom's rampage and is quickly killed. Subverted once he's seen still alive.

"Scribe" Charlotte Mont-d'Or

Voiced by: Atsushi Imaruoka

Age: 38

Birthday: April 23rd (World Book Day)

Bounty: Unknown

Debut: Chapter 829 (Manga), Episode 789 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Book-Book Fruit

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

"You're in... the World of Books!"

The 19th son of the Charlotte Family, Mont-d'Or is Totto Land's Minister of Cheese. He has eaten the Book-Book Fruit (Buku Buku no Mi), a Paramecia that allows him to manipulate books, as well as trap living beings inside books. He thus serves as Big Mom's jailer, keeping both prisoners and her collection of strange creatures stored in books within her library.


  • And I Must Scream: As mentioned above, his power lets him trap people and animals within books, where they are unable to move or even age, but remain totally aware of their situations. Because of this, he additionally works for Big Mom as her jailer; her library is akin to the dungeons, where the "books" are actually cells containing prisoners and unique species Big Mom happened to be interested in, as well as written descriptions of them. Even the idea of it was so horrifying that the Vinsmoke children were understandably freaked out when they paid a visit.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: His outfit has a bone theme going on, and he is named after a type of cheese that's made of cow's milk and high in calcium. Not to mention, his overall body shape is bony and quite emaciated, and his hair is blonde with loose strands that resemble piles of shredded cheese. A fitting appearance for a Minister of Cheese.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Inverted; Sweet Commander Cracker is Mont-d'Or's older brother. When he finds Cracker's body after the latter flies into Whole Cake Island, he swears to kill who it to him, and when he discovers who, he doesn't hesitate to form an army with the rest of his siblings and chase after Luffy in the form of an army.
  • Gag Nose: Has a long red nose, not unlike Usopp's, that sticks from his wise face.
  • Gonk: His overall body shape resembles what a truly emaciated person would look like: skinny arms and legs, and a bloated belly. His face isn't much to look at, either.
  • Hot-Blooded: He's one of the more hotheaded Charlotte children; when Cracker flies back into Whole Cake Island with his ass kicked courtesy of Luffy, Mont-d'Or vehemently swears an oath to kill whomever beat up his older brother. Combined with his family's douchey confidence in their firepower, his temper leads to him making costly mistakes such as underestimating how powerful the Straw Hats would be and giving Vinsmoke Niji (vocally masquerading as Charlotte Nusstorte) the information on which island the Straw Hats will rendezvous (Cacao Island), believing Germa 66 to be dead.
  • Logical Weakness: Books can be excellent weapons and prison cells that trap unlucky victims for an indefinite amount of time... unfortunately for Mont-d'Or, he forgot to take into account that books are made of paper, which is entirely flammable.
  • Nightmare Face: Pulls off one that has a Slasher Smile after he traps Luffy in one of his book-based illusions.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • He, Pekoms, and Tamago share a moment of this when they learn their scout sea slugs have mysteriously disappeared from their territory (actually distracted by Praline's singing voice)
    • He gets another when he finds out Germa 66, whom he thought was killed, arrive at Cacao Island to save Luffy and Sanji and get revenge for the murder attempt.
    • And another when Big News Morgans and Stussy of which he's unaware is a CP-0 agent have suddenly vanished upon hearing the aftermath of Big Mom's destruction and her set to eat Sanji's wedding cake which, he figures according to Pespero, could be poisoned (it isn't obviously). Realizing that if the two leave, Morgans will end up printing news of their failure to stop the Straw Hats and tarnish their reputation. Considering how much he boasted how unbeatable his family was, he knows this will reflect poorly on him to Big Mom herself and quickly orders that the two be captured.
  • Properly Paranoid: Ironically, despite being Hot-Blooded and arrogant, he's also the most suspicious member of the Charlotte family, and often proven right.
    • He orders the Chess Soldiers to keep looking for Luffy and Nami despite Opera claiming he killed them, rightfully believing Opera was being less than honest about what really happened. His suspicions are later confirmed in Chapter 863 when Luffy indeed shows up alive during the crashing of Sanji and Pudding's wedding, much to his fury.
    • In Episode 813, after his little brother Anglaise reports Brook being in the Treasure Room, he gets worried about more Straw Hats arriving in Totto Land. Perospero confidently assures him that Baron Tamago and Smoothie would take care of the intruder, but he's not easily convinced.
    • In the anime, he's also the one to get suspicious of Sanji after finding Bobbin's corpse, and would have found out about his escape and meetings with Luffy if not for a last-minute arrival and the guard at his room lying for his own sake. And even then, it took a reminder that Mom would be upset if anything (including Mont-d'Or's suspicions) delayed the wedding for him to stop trying to pry.
  • Red Baron: His epithet, "Scribe", which comes from his use of his book-based powers.
  • Skeleton Motif: Mont-d'Or wears an outfit designed with a skeleton pattern, possibly reflecting him being the Minister of Cheese, as cheese is a famously high source of calcium.
  • Smug Super: Shares most of his family's douchey confidence in their own political power and firepower, which leads to him underestimating the Straw Hats and their allies, as well as overlooking the possibilities of more siblings coming to the aid of the Straw Hats such as his sisters, Pudding and Praline.
  • The Strategist: He's the one to dispatch war parties of the crew and keeps track of the different groups and objectives.
  • Throw the Book at Them: His ability revolves around books, though no actual book-throwing is involved. He can make books fly (and fly himself stand on two flying books) and trap his opponents in a book dimension.

    Charlotte Snack 

Charlotte Snack

Voiced by: Jiro Saito (JP)

Age: 30

Birthday: October 29th

Bounty: 600,000,000 Berries

Debut: Chapter 894 (Manga), Episode 798 (Silhouette)

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

The 25th son of the Charlotte Family and the eldest in a set of twins, his younger brother being Bavarois. He is Totto Land's Minister of Fries, and used to occupy the position of fourth Sweet Commander, but was demoted from his rank after being defeated by Urouge.

He has a bounty of 600,000,000 berries.


  • Always Identical Twins: Subverted. He and Bavarois are revealed to be fraternal twin brothers in an SBS magazine - Snack is huge, dark-haired, and wears his hair in the form of dango buns. Bavarois is blond, wears his hair in dreadlocks, and has a mustache and goatee.
  • Anime Hair: In an anime only flashback made prior to Snack's reveal in the manga, the silhouetted character meant to be Snack has spiky hair which is seen when he collapses. The actual Snack though has a couple of hair buns stacked on top of one another on his head. These combined with his head resemble a Japanese dessert on a stick called a dango.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In an anime only flashback made prior to Snack's reveal in the manga, the silhouetted character meant to be Snack is depicted as absolutely enormous compared to his fellow Commanders and Cracker's Biscuit Soldier form. Snack's actual size though is nowhere near this huge.
  • Badass Cape: In an anime only flashback made prior to Snack's reveal in the manga, the silhouetted character meant to be Snack is seen wearing a big, fluttering cape behind him.
  • Badass Normal: He was one of the four Sweet Commanders before his demotion (albeit the one with the lowest bounty), and the only one who isn't known to have a Devil Fruit.
  • Beef Gate: Essentially set up as an endurance test to prove if someone has the mettle to make it into the New World. Urouge's Devil Fruit turns the damage he racks up into muscle mass, causing a karmic reversal that let him win and proved he could hold his own. Unfortunately, the very act of beating Snack was a declaration of war that led to a second Commander attacking him along with a fleet of reinforcements. Urouge was not prepared for this.
  • BFS: Wields a rather large katana when confronting Vinsmoke Judge.
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: Snack is first mentioned in Chapter 837 and named in Chapter 843 (late 2016) but doesn't appear until Chapter 894 (February 2018). It raised doubts whether he would actually appear or not, and his sudden appearance is given no foreshadowing, and needless to say, proves quite unexpected.
  • Four Is Death: He used to round out the commanders into the Four Sweet Commanders, giving them their deadly epithet.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Averted. He and Bavaroiz are fraternal twin brothers, and thus look nothing alike.
  • Ironic Name: A snack is a small bit of food eaten between meals; Charlotte Snack is a very big, very wide man.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: He has a big scarf draped around his neck and shoulders that hides a bit of his face.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: The anime provides a flashback of when Urouge defeated Snack not found in the manga. In it, there is an enormous muscular heavily silhouetted character meant to be Snack. The actual Snack looks nothing like this character as the flashback was made before Snack's reveal in the manga. A few details seem to match, such as the armored and pointy shoulders, but the rest is all over the place.
  • Slouch of Villainy: Introduced slumped down and resting his head on his fist in a passive position.
  • Stealth Pun: Snack is Totto Land's Minster of Fries, is named after a tiny portion of food that is eaten before mealtimes, and is the first Sweet Commander to be defeated. Compared to his more powerful siblings who are Sweet Commanders, he's considered to be small fry.
  • Unperson: Narrowly subverted due to being mentioned offhandedly by Charlotte Brûlée and Pound. You would hardly know this guy existed and that there was one more Sweet Commander than there are now if not for their commentary, because unlike Doflamingo's vacant Heart seat among his executives which is meaningfully left intact to pay due to the dead/fallen occupants, there isn't any vacancy left behind with Snack out of the picture, suggesting that Big Mom is impassioned not to remember his defeat and pretend it didn't happen/ignore the fact it happened because it was shameful. Eventually, we do get to meet the man after one heck of a waiting period, and he's a rather aloof fellow.
  • The Worf Effect: Defeated before even being introduced, but in a flashback added to the anime, his towering size made it clear he was not to be trifled with. Urouge used his Devil Fruit to withstand Snack in a difficult battle and beat him. And given that the lowest known bounty among them is 860 million berries and his defeat was enough to incite a second commander and company to come after the one who beat him, this is a stunning accomplishment. When Snack's bounty is revealed to be 600 million berries, however, it becomes clear that Urouge only bested the least imposing (but not necessarily the weakest) of the four.
    • As an odd inversion of this trope, the fact that he hasn't been replaced by any of his siblings after his rank-down despite the impressive showings of Perospero, Daifuku and Oven and the fact that Big Mom bothered to rename the Sweets Four General to "Sweets Three Generals" indicate that none of the other 81 siblings were strong enough to replace Snack.
  • You Can't Thwart Stage One:
    • Averted; One would think the Straw Hats would have to face off against all of the executive forces of an Arc Villain to get to their leader- this time, a fourth of their work has already been done for them.
    • However, not averted for Urouge, who was succinctly worn down after defeating Snack and forced to take on Cracker immediately afterward. With his stamina wearing thin, and in no position to bring down a second Commander on top of the first, Urouge was unable to overpower his incredibly tough armor and quickly defeated.
    • Double subverted; Snack appears to be out of the picture, then becomes an obstacle for the Straw Hats and cohorts to contend with when he actually shows up, much later into the arc.

Charlotte Anglaise

Voiced by: Masami Kikuchi

Age: 14

Birthday: October 19th

Debut: Chapter 845 (Manga) Episode 809 (Anime)

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

The 42nd son of the Charlotte Family, Anglaise is a young teenager who acts and speaks like a Greaser.


  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Subverted; according to an SBS issue, he ranked in 1st place in Flampe's "King of Little Brothers" survey, indicating that he's very well-loved by his older siblings despite his bratty behavior.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: He is a young teenager who tries to act like a stereotypical Greaser by swearing and speaking in lingo, dressing up in leather, wearing pompadours, using a cute, motorized, pink-green caterpillar as his motorcycle and refusing to brush his teeth. Due to his young age, he comes off as a young kid trying too hard to be cool. He also tattles on Brook to a few of his older siblings who are in Big Mom's library, saying there's an "intruder" in the Treasure Room.
  • Cool Bike: Subverted; in Chapter 848, Anglaise rides into Big Mom's library on a huge caterpillar homie with Harley-Davidson handlebars for antennae. The fact that he's riding an adorable-looking bike in the first place is not helping his Greaser image one bit. He could also be seen riding it in his debut, Chapter 845, as Big Mom prepares to have dinner with the Vinsmokes.
  • Delinquent Hair: Like his older brother, Moscato, Anglaise also sports a pompadour, except his is completely black. He also acts like a stereotypical Greaser.
  • Greaser Delinquents: He tries to be one of those but, due to being a young teenager with his own perceptions on being "cool", comes off as a Bratty Half-Pint at best.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Wears a black leather jacket as part of his Greaser get-up.
  • Ironic Name: Anglaise tries to look cool and tough by acting like a Greaser. But his name comes from crème anglaise, a sweet custard sauce. The cute caterpillar he rides as a motorcycle doesn't help his image much.
  • Older Than They Look: Anglaise, according to an SBS issue, is stated to be 14 years old. Yet due to the art style, he looks like a little kid.
  • Poke the Poodle: His idea of delinquency and rebellion? Not brushing his teeth before bed.
  • The Stool Pigeon: He is the "Obnoxious Oscar" type who tattles to a few of his older brothers and sisters, saying there's an "intruder" (Brook) in the Treasure Room, which tips them off to possibly more Straw Hats invading Totto Land.
  • Teens Are Monsters: Parodied; Angliase tries really hard to be a Greaser, yet he rides a cute caterpillar motorcycle, and his idea of delinquency was not brushing teeth before bed, so he comes across as little more than a Bratty Half-Pint. There's also the fact that he tattles on Brook to his older siblings, like how a little kid tells a parent their sibling is stealing cookies for themselves.
  • Verbal Tic: Often says "Thank you!" in the anime, in his first speaking role.

The eldest daughter and second child of the Charlotte Family, Compote also serves as Totto Land's Minister of Fruits.


  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: She is the Minister of Fruit who wears a very lavish hat that resembles a trifle cup full of stacked fruits. As revealed in the anime, her dress is also lined with two rows of oranges at the bottom.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Compote is named after a fruit dessert.
  • Fat Bastard: She's very overweight and a loyal subordinate to Big Mom.
  • Gonk: Like Big Mom herself. She's quite overweight and has an unattractive face.
  • Informed Attribute: She's described as being in the same level of strength as the Sweet Commanders, but we've yet to see her fight. At the very least she does seems to have a strong will, being able to withstand Big Mom's conqueror's Haki and remain conscious from her loud screams.
  • Nice Hat: She wears a huge bowl of fruit parfait for a hat, and it's stacked with fruit of all kinds.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Her mother's spitting image in all but hat, hair color, and clothes.

Birthday: December 10th

Bounty: Unknown

Debut: Chapter 827 (Manga), Episode 786 (Anime)

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

"What is the use in killing another if their life ends instantly……?!!! I only slice my foes at the most painful and excruciating of speeds…!!!"

The 3rd daughter of the Charlotte family and a snakeneck-human hybrid. Amande is the second in a set of quadruplets, her sisters being Mondée, Hachée and Effilée. She is Totto Land's Minister of Nuts, and an extremely skilled and dangerous swordswoman.


  • Badass Normal: Considering many of her siblings in the crew possess a devil fruit, especially the eldest and most powerful members, the fact that she fights only using her deadly skills with her sword and is among the most feared ones is quite notable.
  • BFS: She carries a very long katana, even relatively to her, which is one of the Meitou, the legendary swords.
  • Big Sister Instinct: When Luffy tries fleeing Nuts Island with Brûlée in tow, Amande tries to rescue her younger sister, only to be frustrated when Perospero unwittingly blocks her way with his candy powers trying to do the same thing.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: The only death she gives to her victims. She wants them to suffer, so she cuts them slowly to make them suffer more. She did this to King Baum.
  • Dark Action Girl: Very deadly and just as sadistic, she makes sure to slice enemies at painful and excruciating speeds.
  • Evil Counterpart: Can be seen as one to Zoro; while they're the most "normal" of their crews, with their strongest talent being their swordsmanship, Zoro is a man of honor and generally doesn't like killing. Amande uses her sword like torture instruments, slowly killing people to give them the most agonizing deaths possible.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Has the deepest voice of her sisters, presumably due to her constant smoking. She's a sadistic swordswoman who works for her mother, Big Mom.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: She wears a hat that has an extremely wide brim and hides her face unless she's seen from below.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: She is an evil swordswoman working as a member of Big Mom's crew, and carries a cigarette in her mouth. This trait is shared with her younger fraternal quadruplet sisters, Hachée and Effilée, who also smoke cigarettes.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: An SBS from Volume 86 of the manga confirms that she's half-snakeneck.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Her stoic expression is made even more uncomfortable by her blue eyes.
  • Lady of War: Fittingly for a stoic swordswoman who fights in an elegant dress, she's as refined as she is deadly in combat.
  • Lean and Mean: She's very thin and tall, and long-necked due to being half-Snakeneck, and she's a sadistic pirate working under Big Mom.
  • Long Neck: By default as a member of the snakeneck tribe (well, half-snakeneck), it even has a tattoed black stripe that makes it similar to a swan's neck.
  • Master Swordsman: Unlike many of her siblings she doesn't seem to have any Devil Fruit powers and relies entirely on her swordsmanship, using it to massacre an army of knights and cleave King Baum. She also almost cuts Luffy in two.
  • Nice Hat: A (very) wide-brimmed hat with purple flowers decorating it. It's even wide enough to completely shield her from the downpour of candy rain outside.
  • Not So Stoic: Usually very calm even while giving her enemies excruciating deaths. But when Big Mom destroys Nuts Island during a hunger rampage for wedding cake, she desperately pleads for her mother to stop destroying her town. She's seen a few chapters later, staring forlornly at the destruction Big Mom had caused, while the surviving citizens of Nuts Island around her lament their situation.
  • Older Than They Look: Being the third daughter of Big Mom would put her somewhere in her mid to late 40s, but like several of her siblings of similar age, she could pass for someone a decade or two younger.
  • Pretty Princess Powerhouse: Reserved, graceful, and a powerful and utterly sadistic swordswoman.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches her waist and ends with curls, fitting with her lean and elegant appearance.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Implied; as the Minister of Nuts Island, she's responsible for its well-being. When Big Mom destroys it in her rampage for wedding cake, Amande desperately begs her to stop, and is later seen staring forlornly at the ruins of her island with the survivors. One of the houses Luffy and Brulee lands in after escaping Katakuri has a picture of Amande in it, further implying that she's well-regarded among Nuts Island's civilian populace.
  • Red Baron: Her epithet, "Demon Lady", due to her ghostly appearance and sadistic demeanor.
  • Sadist: She enjoys slowly cutting up foes to give them a long, agonizing death.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: Averted. The One Piece Vol. 4 magazine reveals her to be the second-oldest of female fraternal quadruplets, the others being Mondée, Hachée, and Effilée. But despite all of them being Snakeneck hybrids and wearing wide-brimmed hats that shadow their eyes, they're all different enough to be told apart; Mondée looks more human out of her sisters, while Hachée is Amande's splitting image save for her suit.
  • The Southpaw: She has her katana sheath on her right hip and carries her blade on her left hand.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's very tall and quite a pleasure to the eyes.
  • The Stoic: She's always calm, and the only time she shows any emotions is when she tries to stop Big Mom from destroying her island.
  • Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl: She's likely inspired by the onryō of Japanese folklore, with her thin and pale body, long light-blue hair, sadism, and "Demon Lady" epithet. Along with her long dress and wide-brimmed hat she also might be one to the similar "Hachishakusama" from urban Japanese myth.
  • Tattooed Crook: She has two hearts and a black stripe tattooed on her long neck.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has long light-blue hair that helps to give her a ghostly appearance.
  • You Have Failed Me: It doesn't matter what excuse King Baum has, as reasonable as it is: he has failed to kill Luffy and Nami, and she slowly cuts him in half for this.

Devil Fruit: Mirror-Mirror Fruit

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

"Have you finally realized how scary the woods can be, darling?"

The 8th daughter of the Charlotte Family, Brûlée is the eldest in a set of twins, her younger sister being Broyé. She has eaten the Mirror-Mirror Fruit (Mira Mira no Mi), a Paramecia that allows her to create mirrors that can reflect attacks, turn into a mirror copy of someone and act as portals into a parallel dimension known as the Mirro-World.


  • Adult Fear:
    • Villain or not, she's understandably terrified and upset over being held hostage by the Straw Hats, and being used against her own family. And when she witnesses Whole Cake Chateau fall as she confronts Caesar and Bege, she's very distraught over the prospect of losing her entire family to an unexpected disaster.
    • Being subjected to a Revenge by Proxy by someone to spite the original person who wronged them. After Brulee was attacked by Katakuri's bullies, who scarred her face horribly while insulting Katakuri's freakish mouth, she came back home bleeding on a stretcher to serve as a "message" for her brother. Katakuri didn't take kindly to this.
  • Always Identical Twins: Averted. She and her sister Broyé are revealed to be fraternal twin sisters, with Broyé having shorter hair "branches" than her elder sibling. It's implied that they looked more similar until Brûlée was horribly scarred by a particularly spiteful group of bullies, preventing her from aging as gracefully.
  • Anime Hair: Her hair sticks out in four different directions, like tree branches. Her younger twin sister Broyé also has this hairstyle, but it's much shorter.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. It's because of the bullies who targeted her for their Revenge by Proxy that she has that horrible facial scar now. Seeing her face marred so badly and knowing it was his carelessness that led to it caused Katakuri to become his family's fearsome protector, so no one will get hurt again.
  • Be Yourself: As a young child, Brulee probably heard the bullies who scarred her face insulting Katakuri and his fanged mouth. When she came back home bleeding and in pain, she tried to put on a brave face and assure a very distraught Katakuri that he's perfect, "just the way you are".
  • Big Brother Worship: Katakuri can do no wrong in her eyes. This is because as children, after she was horribly scarred, Katakuri defended her honor by brutally attacking the bullies responsible for her scarring. Even while knowing the fearsome image he created was just that, a facade, Brûlée still thinks highly of her older brother and wants nothing but the world for him.
  • Blatant Lies: When a young Brulee came back with a horrible, bleeding scar on her face, she tried to put on a brave face and assure her distraught siblings that "it doesn't hurt", despite her obvious condition and the fact that she's tearing up from sheer pain.
  • Breaking Speech: Gives one to Nami, saying how many so-called big name pirates (including Eustass Kid, Scratchmen Apoo, Capone Bege and Urouge) met a proverbial dead end when they crossed Big Mom's territory, that they're all terrified just like what Nami is experiencing currently, and proclaims that they'll never even know what Big Mom looks like.
  • Bystander Syndrome: Implied; she knew that Chiffon was horrifically abused by Big Mom for being the runaway Lola's identical twin, but never once intervened. Chiffon later calls her out on it when Brûlée begs her to reconsider helping Bege assassinate Big Mom.
  • The Chew Toy:
    • Following her defeat at the hands of Chopper and Carrot, she has been reduced to this. First, she's put in a bag worn by Chopper to exploit her powers, than she's given Tickle Torture to tell how to find the others, then when she's giving a Breaking Speech to the Sanji Retrieval Team that it's hopeless to escape, she gets a Shut Up, Hannibal! snub, then finally, when she tries to alert Big Mom, she gets Bound and Gagged. Her Humiliation Conga could rival Caesar Clown's, and just like him, all of it is Played for Laughs.
    • She continues to be further humiliated during Luffy and Katakuri's fight when the former takes her hostage to escape from the Mirror World to the archipelago for a brief reprieve. After Luffy lets her go so he can fight Katakuri once more, she's kidnapped again by Pe-Nazoms. By the time all this happens she's reduced to begging any sibling that she can find to save her.
  • Clone by Conversion: One of Brûlée's less-used abilities is to transform any animal (including humans) into a mirror image of any other animal (again, including humans). This seems to be easily undone, however, and the transformed subjects are not affected mentally meaning they won't fool anyone for long, so she uses it mainly to stall through confusion.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Her childhood scarring caused Katakuri who acted much like Luffy as a kid, to put up a fearsome image and become the ruthless man he is today to protect his siblings. It's implied that she envies pretty people because of this, since her scar caused her brother so much grief.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: After Katakuri beat up some kids, they retaliated by attacking her and scarring her face. It served as the Cynicism Catalyst for Katakuri, putting up a fearsome image to protect his siblings.
  • Distress Ball: It's hard to call her a Damsel in Distress, but the Straw Hats do keep on taking her captive, mostly because being able to move through mirrors freely is a very handy ability. Naturally, Brûlée doesn't take kindly to this and is, if anything, a Defiant Captive.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After an entire arc of being humiliated, abused and exploited by the Straw Hat-Firetank Pirates Alliance, Brûlée finally gets a moment of revenge by using her powers to block Caesar's escape.
  • Doppelgänger: She's able to transform herself and others into exact duplicates of whomever and whatever she wants. It's worth noting that she's the first Devil User powerful enough to be able to replicate Devil Fruit powers.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Ugly, creepy, and nasty she may be, but she's easily the sister Katakuri feels closest to and she stands up for him both publicly and privately.
  • Evil Laugh: Her Signature Laugh, "Wiwwiwwiwwi." Yuko Mita makes her laugh sound shrill and malicious, akin to a wicked witch.
  • Evil Makes You Ugly: Inverted. Whatever gave her that ugly facial scar turned her into a sadistic, jealous woman who hates people with pretty faces. Then again, considering she received the scar as a Revenge by Proxy against her brother Katakuri, and she tried to tell him not to worry after she got it...
  • Expy:
    • Her appearance and introduction is based on a Japanese urban legend of a malicious spirit called Kuchisake-onna (slith-mouthed woman), who asks hapless women to comment on her Glasgow Grin and depending on the answer, she will either slice their mouth (if they say she looks beautiful) or kill them (if they say she looks awful). The only way of escape is to stall her by answering 'not sure' and running away.
    • She's also meant to be this for the Evil Queen from Snow White, as they share Gonk appearances and envy of attractive people, and mirror themes.
    • Also, when she's trying to cook Carrot, she's in a biscuit house, like Hansel and Gretel's witch.
  • Family Theme Naming: Shares this with most of his siblings; she's named after the Crème brûlée.
  • Fearful Symmetry: Brûlée has the ability to disguise herself as people's reflections, and when Luffy tried attacking her (as his doppelganger), she automatically matched his every technique. It's rather notable as it's the first Devil Fruit power in the series that gives somebody the ability to mimic another Devil Fruit power perfectly. She can also act on her own and force the person she's copying to mirror her actions against their will. It's part of her Mirror-Mirror Fruit ability.
  • Femme Fatalons: He's clearly seen having stiletto nails, to add to her Wicked Witch appearance.
  • Flower Motifs: She has roses on her clothes, which is shared by her younger sister, Praline. As stated in Praline's folder, roses represent love; she adores and worships her big brother Katakuri, even while knowing his true character behind the badass front he presents. It becomes tragic when you take what happened to her in the past into consideration.
  • Foil: To Flampe. Both of them adored Katakuri to the point of Big Brother Worship. Both have stalker-ish behaviour toward him. But Flampe only ever loves the perfect big brother's image that Katakuri cultivated while Brûlée loves him for who he is. Their appearance and personality further emphasizes the contrast: Flampe is youthful, pretty and innocent-looking but is shallow and a massive Bitch in Sheep's Clothing; Brûlée is an ugly evil witch but has surprisingly nice Hidden Depths. This is shown in their reactions to Katakuri's face during and after his match with Luffy: Flampe mocked, denounced and spat in Katakuri's face while Brûlée tenderly cared for his wounds.
  • Gag Nose: Has a long, dark nose that makes her look like an evil witch. It's one thing she inherited from Big Mom. Even when she was still a cute kid, she already had a pointy nose.
  • Gonk: She's rather ugly-looking, with a very gaunt face and gnarled hands, though whatever gave her her facial scarring added to her appearance and made her envious of pretty people. However, she was rather pretty as a child, but her face was marred by bullies looking to spite Katakuri as part of a Revenge by Proxy plan. After that, she didn't age as gracefully as seen with most of her sisters, who are drop-dead gorgeous..
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a nasty-looking gash running across her face, and she's loyal to her mother Big Mom. In an unique twist, the scar itself is a good scar as she received it when she was a child as a Revenge by Proxy for Katakuri. This incident pushed Katakuri to develop his fearsome image so that none of his siblings will ever be hurt again.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Hates people who have pretty faces. When she sees the pretty-faced Nami and Carrot, it made her want to slice them up. It's implied that she's this way not because she hates being ugly, but that she hates having her facial scar be a reminder of what Katakuri sees as his greatest shame, even though she doesn't blame him for it.
  • Hidden Depths: She may look and act like a wicked witch, but underneath that is a sister who loves her big brother Katakuri unconditionally, no matter what he looks like. When he's finally beaten and his mouth of fangs is exposed, she tells him that she knew about the act as The Paragon he was keeping up thanks to her mirrors, and that she cares for him still.
    • Chapter 902 implies she hates her scar not because of her own vanity, but because how badly it emotionally scarred Katakuri, who felt responsible.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: Her mirror power allows her to turn other things into an exact replica of another person. Chopper and Carrot trick her by faking to be captured and, using a frog that Brûlée mistakenly made to look like Carrot, they manage to set up an ambush and take out Brûlée and the rest of her group. And while they're at it, Carrot drenches Brûlée in the same hot soup that she planned to drop fake Carrot into.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Averted with her and Broyé, who are fraternal twin sisters. Getting horribly scarred and not aging as gracefully as her younger twin didn't help much.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: She's a lot easier in the eyes during her childhood. The scar she got from Katakuri's bullies didn't help her age as gracefully as her sisters.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: As stated above, Brûlée tries to ruin Carrot's face by throwing her into a boiling soup and giving her third-degree burns. However, the Carrot that Brûlée caught was actually a frog transformed to look like Carrot, while the real Carrot was waiting for the right time to ambush and ends up drenching Brûlée in the same soup that was intended for the fake Carrot.
  • Lean and Mean: She's a nasty, stick-looking woman who hates beautiful people and threatens to hurt Carrot for being more adorable than her. Luffy mistook her for a tree branch when he saw her standing on a tree.
  • MacGuffin Girl: She spends a lot of the Whole Cake Island arc tied up in a bag, as her powers are extremely useful for the heroes but require her to be physically present.
  • Magic Mirror: Her Devil Fruit, the Mirror-Mirror Fruit, allows her to create those. Applications include the standard Attack Reflector, Fearful Symmetry and Mirror Universe Crystal Prison. She can also use mirrors to teleport to one place to another, as long as those places have mirrors, and she can simply create one to do so.
  • Meaningful Name: She's named after the "creme brûlée", a dessert which has a "scarred", caramelized surface from being scorched with a butane torch or the flambéing technique. Brûlée has a disfiguring facial scar on her face, and has an envious hatred of beautiful people. [[It also served as Foreshadowing - Brûlée got scarred by a group of bullies who wanted to spite her brother Katakuri for beating them up]].
  • Mirror Monster: One of the more expected applications of the Mirror-Mirror Fruit.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Her announcement to the Cacao Island forces that Luffy defeated Katakuri succeeds in its intended effect of angering and energizing them, but it also causes them to focus solely on Luffy and Sanji, opening them up to attacks from the Vinsmoke siblings.
  • Pocket Dimension: Has what she calls the "Mirror World" - she's able to trap people in it, like what she did to Chopper and Carrot.
  • Power Incontinence: Downplayed; she may be able to use mirrors as portals in and out of her Pocket Dimension, but as long as she's touching a mirror, anyone can use it, whether she wants to let them through or not. Which is why she spends the arc Bound and Gagged and used pretty much as a living key by the Straw Hat pirates.
  • Revenge by Proxy: Was part of one as a child; the people who bullied Katakuri couldn't fight back because he was too strong, so they thought it was a good idea to give themselves an advantage by attacking one of his siblings and scarring them horribly. It didn't work; Katakuri got mad and slaughtered all of them.
  • Scars Are Forever: That jagged scar across her face was inflicted when she was just a little girl, by some thugs who wanted to get revenge on her brother Katakuri through her. While it made her envious of pretty people, she doesn't blame Katakuri for it.
  • Squishy Wizard: Her devil fruit is very versatile, but she's taken down easily first by Nami, and then by Chopper and Carrot. Bonus point for resembling a witch.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Barring the scar, she pretty much looks like a thin version of Big Mom.
  • Tickle Torture: Subjected to this by Carrot in chapter 851.
  • The Tragic Rose: Roses adorned her clothes, even as a child. She experienced a brutal scarring when she was younger, and is the reason why Katakuri became the family's badass Sweet Commander.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Seriously thought Luffy and Nami would fall like the previous guys who tried to fight the Charlotte Family/Big Mom Pirates. She's later proven wrong.
    • Ditto with Chopper and Carrot later, who both manage to outsmart and defeat her with a well-placed mirror doppelganger and tipping over a boiling cauldron of soup onto her.
  • When She Smiles: She gave a genuine one, which dispelled quite a bit of her scary persona, as she's treating Katakuri's wounds from his fight with Luffy.
  • You Have Failed Me: Katakuri, assuming she has willingly betrayed the family for the Straw Hats, threatens her after finally freeing her from them. Brûlée begs for mercy from her brother and tries to explain that she was acting against her will.
  • Younger Than They Look: One Piece Magazine Vol.5 confirmed she's only 43 (and has eighteen older siblings), despite looking like a skinny, haggard witch with an ugly facial scar.

Charlotte Galette

Age: 31

Birthday: October 19th

Debut: Chapter 829 (Manga), Episode 789 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Butter-Butter Fruit

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

The 18th daughter of the Charlotte Family and the eldest in a set of twins, her younger sister being Poire. She is Totto Land's Minister of Butter and has eaten the Butter-Butter Fruit (Bata Bata no Mi), a Paramecia that allows her to create and manipulate butter.


  • Adult Fear: When Whole Cake Chateau suddenly starts tipping over, she's seen screaming as she nearly falls to her death. Thankfully, Katakuri rescues her with his mochi powers just in time.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Double-subverted; despite being the Minister of Butter and having butter-related powers, she looks nothing like the food she specializes in. On the other hand, she looks like a devil with her horns and fuchsia color scheme, which fits her allegiance as a Big Mom pirate.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Inverted; after learning that her big brother Cracker was attacked and defeated by Luffy, she joins in her other siblings in forming a manhunt for Luffy.
  • Coat Cape: She always wears her dark feather coat in this manner. Her younger twin sister, Poire, does the same with her own coat.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Galette is named after a type of flat cake.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She debuts in Chapter 829, begging Big Mom not to kill her brother Moscato, and is horrified after Moscato has 40 years of his lifespan stolen from him. Later, she looks distraught after her older brother Cracker crash-lands into Sweet City unconscious and battered, and joins her other siblings in the manhunt for Luffy, Cracker's assailant.
  • Fur and Loathing: She wears a dark purple feathered coat, and is a loyal member of the Big Mom Pirates.
  • Horns of Villainy: Galette wears a pair of small, black, spaded ones, though whether they're real or not is unclear.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Subverted with her and Poire. Despite being twins (as revealed in SBS 88), they seem to be fraternal as, aside from having the same fuschia-colored hair and wearing furred coats over their dresses, they look nothing alike.
  • Making a Splash: Sort of. Thanks to her Butter-Butter Fruit, she can generate transparent butter and control it to her whim. She's shown using it to bind Nami, completely preventing her from moving.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": She and a few of her brothers and sisters start looking panicked as Big Mom yells at Nami and Luffy in anger over them mentioning her hated daughter Lola.
  • Oh, Crap!: She's understandably terrified when Whole Cake Chateau suddenly starts tipping over due to a bomb exploding, and she nearly falls to her death. Thankfully, Katakuri saves her.
  • Pretty in Mink: She is never seen without her dark feather coat, and isn't so hard on the eyes herself, either. That being said, she's a lackey/child of Big Mom.
  • Pretty Princess Powerhouse: She is a beautiful young woman dressed in stylish clothing, and one of the stronger members of the Charlotte family.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her color scheme is a mix of dark purple and fuchsia. She's shown to be one of the more powerful fighters of the Charlotte family, right by her siblings.
  • She's Got Legs: Her dress is purposely designed short so she can show off those beautiful, long legs.
  • Sticky Situation: The main way she uses her butter powers to immobilize her foes.
  • The Stoic: In contrast to her twin sister Poire's constant grinning, she constantly looks like she doesn't emote much, save for when her siblings are threatened.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Her eyes are shaped in this manner, something that's rare in One Piece and usually reserved for the most powerful characters. Considering how she defeated Nami in one shot by completely binding her with her Devil Fruit powers, she seems to be a powerful fighter in her own right.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has purple-red hair.

Charlotte Pudding

Age: 16

Birthday: June 25th

Debut: Chapter 651 (Manga), Episode 571 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Memory-Memory Fruit

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

"I'm one of Mama's "favorites" you know? She especially loves how good I am at acting."

The 35th daughter of the Charlotte Family, and a human-Three Eyed Tribe hybrid. She's Sanji's intended bride-to-be, their union meant to seal an alliance between the Vinsmoke Family and the Charlotte Family. She works as a chocolatier and cafe owner, and has eaten the Memory-Memory Fruit (Memo Memo no Mi), which allows her to view any person's memories and manipulate them to her wishes.


  • Adaptational Curves: While she already has an Impossible Hourglass Figure in the manga, she's still noticeably more buxom in the anime.
  • Adaptational Expansion: In the anime, when Daifuku appears to kill Sanji himself, Pudding runs to him, almost getting steamrolled by her brother's Majin in the process, and begs him for a second chance.
  • Adorkable: Double subverted. Her relationship with Straw Hats and her love of Sanji is initially cute and she is blushing like a kid when they congratulate her. Then The Reveal comes. Then somewhat rebuilt by Chapter 862, where a compliment from Sanji about her third eye flusters her to the point of tears. Then, later still, this is fully rebuilt by chapter 875; she falls in love with Sanji for real and can barely speak to him anymore without a Luminescent Blush and/or fainting from her sheer emotion... or literally bursting into flames with hearts in her eyes.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: In an expansion of her flashback, Pudding remembers Lola patting her on the head and assuring her that she'll be alright before running away from home.
  • Always Someone Better: Chapter 879 revealed that Pudding always saw her older sister, Lola, as the better chocolatier of the two. So much that she kept refusing the family's expectations for her to take over as Minister of Chocolatown after Lola ran away from a political marriage, hoping that Lola will come back and reclaim her former position one day, even though Lola's current Black Sheep status makes it completely unlikely.
  • Ambiguous Disorder:
    • Her swinging from murderous behavior to borderline obsession could be an extreme case of Bipolar Disorder, which started to manifest after experiencing a mental breakdown stemming from her abusive childhood.
    • Her manipulation of others, distorted self-image, and unstable emotions are also common symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder.
  • Apologises a Lot:
    • After hearing of the Vinsmokes' horrendous treatment of Sanji and how he was "persuaded" into marrying Pudding, Pudding switches between being horrified, crying, and apologizing for inconveniencing him. However, it was all an act at the time and she didn't care about him at all. To add insult to injury, she even mocked how he fell for her crocodile tears later on.
    • Ironically, by the time Sanji has forgiven her completely and is ready to part ways amicably, Pudding causes herself immense distress by being unable to apologize to him genuinely (due to her Ambiguous Disorder preventing her from properly expressing her emotions).
  • Armor-Piercing Attack: She owns a powerful revolver with special bullets that can pierce the hardened body of Super Soldier Vinsmoke Reiju.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Sanji throws her one as she tries (and fails) to shoot him, leading to a Heel–Face Turn later on.
    Pudding: I've deceived thousands of people like this!
    Sanji: And were you yourself one of them, Pudding?
    (Pudding tears up as she gasps in shock)
  • Arranged Marriage: With Sanji. Both would've liked it if it didn't mean tearing Sanji away from the Straw Hat pirates and his dream of finding the All Blue. And both would've liked it if Pudding hadn't snapped as a kid and become a bitter, angry, manipulative Bitch in Sheep's Clothing sent by Big Mom to lure Sanji and his family into an alliance that was a complete farce to begin with, so Big Mom can wipe them out Red Wedding-style. Ironically though, she does end up falling for him only after their "engagement" inevitably falls apart.
  • Ax-Crazy: Her true personality. She's a sadistic psychopath much like her mother, and she takes great joy in fooling the Straw Hats and telling them to their faces that they're going to die. She also shot Reiju with an armor-piercing bullet, which caused Reiju to bleed profusely from her legs, and then messed with Reiju's memories to get away with it. And while she does go good for real later on, she's clearly still very mentally ill.
  • Bait the Dog: Ultimately subverted. She was introduced as a seemingly nice girl who genuinely had Sanji's interests in mind, only to reveal her cruel and sadistic nature later on. Then, after that, some kind words from Sanji cause her to actually become that sweet, caring girl he met at first (albeit one with an evil Split Personality constantly at odds with her new self).
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: She's among the few of Big Mom's many children that look conventionally pretty and as such she's more morally upright than many of her siblings. This is subverted for a while when she turns out to have been faking her good girl persona, but eventually, this is played straight once again when Sanji's kindness brings out Pudding's good side for real.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Sanji's comment about her third eye being "beautiful" moves her to the point where she madly falls in love with him and decides to pull a Heel–Face Turn. In general, because she had been treated like shit all her life, hearing nice things and/or receiving genuine kindness from Sanji makes her feel incredibly moved to the point of tears, and makes her switch from "evil" Pudding to "good and willing to help" Pudding instantly... all while acting madly in love, of course.
  • Becoming the Mask: Once Sanji calls her Third Eye beautiful, Pudding stops taking him for granted, because he complimented her on something she really cared about and nobody had ever appreciated before. Her personality changes to become truly kind (though she still struggles with her evil self trying to take over again.)
  • Believing Their Own Lies: As she tried (and failed at) shooting Sanji, she shouts that this is the real her and she deceived countless people before him. Sanji accuses her of having been fooled by her master acting herself, and it seems to be true, as it shocked her to the point of rethinking her actions and later betraying her own family to help the Straw Hats.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Just like her groom-to-be, her button is wasting food. She gets angry that her chocolate building wasn't completely eaten rather than the fact that Luffy and Chopper were basically causing property damage.
    • She also has another one... one that she shows with her genuine personality. She really doesn't like people being perverted towards her, being overcome with rage and the desire to kill Sanji on the spot when he has a Nosebleed while talking to her. However, this is ultimately subverted later on; once she actually comes to like Sanji, she returns his pervy affections by falling over with nosebleeds and hearts in her eyes herself!
    • The biggest one, though? Calling her Third Eye hideous. After one mocking too many, it becomes her "kill horribly" button. When Sanji becomes the first person to her third eye "beautiful", it shocks her so much that she's reduced to genuine Broken Tears.
  • Berserker Tears: Mixed with Broken Tears; she cries in rage as she snaps and lashes out at her childhood bullies.
  • Big Brother Worship: Gender-inverted; she looked up to her older sister Lola, and believed she made a better Minister than she would. Of course, her mother and many of her other siblings don't see the same as her.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She was initially pretending to be nice. In truth, after reaching her breaking point, she became as Ax-Crazy as most of her older/younger siblings. Luckily though, she wasn't as far gone as them and managed to pull a Heel–Face Turn with Sanji's help.
  • Blatant Lies: After pulling a Heel–Face Turn and developing a Split Personality, she evidently lost her ability to lie convincingly. Upon reaching the Straw Hats with Chiffon, her "evil Pudding" persona claims aloud that she "just so happened to coincidentally" be in the same area as the Straw Hats and it "just so happens" that she's going to make a cake that "just so happens" to be the type that will stop Big Mom- but she's not doing it to help them, dammit! It's not like she doesn't want Sanji to die, or anything!
  • Broken Bird: As of Chapter 862, she's revealed to be this. A disastrous childhood combination of her mother and strangers alike calling her Third Eye freakish made her snap and become the monster they all called her. Sanji calling her third eye beautiful affects her so much that she collapses in tears.
  • Broken Tears:
    • The result of Sanji being the first-ever to compliment her third-eye. Also part of her Villainous Breakdown.
    • Child!Pudding cries a combination of this and Berserker Tears after she snaps from the vicious bullying she received.
    • She later sheds these again in Chapter 902, when faced with the possibility that she will never see her beloved Sanji again.
  • Cain and Abel: Subverted with her relationships with her older sisters, Lola and Chiffon. Chiffon mentions that she and Pudding used to bake cakes together, and Pudding admires Lola to the point that she constantly refuses to succeed the latter as Minister of Cacao Island after Lola ran away, because she thinks Lola is a better Minister than she.
  • Characterization Marches On: She looked rather uncomfortable and perhaps fearful of Big Mom as she ate her subordinates in her early appearance in the Fish-Man Island arc, which seems to contradict her later characterization as a violent psychopath who enjoys working for her mom. 862, however, shows that Big Mom used to verbally/emotionally abuse her when she was young, coupled with how she's aware that Big Mom's "love" of her is limited to how useful she is, it looks like the fear was genuine.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Pudding is the three-eyed girl sitting next to Big Mom in Chapter 651. She keeps her Third Eye hidden when she is properly introduced and only reveals it when she shows her true nature.
    • Chekhov's Gun: Her third eye itself, considering that Sanji calling it beautiful is what triggers her tearful breakdown.
  • Consummate Liar: She's an expert actor and was quite a snake when introduced, successfully fooling the Straw Hats and Vinsmokes into believing she was a good person. She's so good that, during the wedding, Sanji starts to question himself if perhaps what he saw earlier was all just a bad dream or his imagination. Eventually though, this is turned on it's head when she falls for Sanji and develops a Split Personality; her evil persona instead starts telling Blatant Lies even as Pudding herself continues to help the Straw Hats out.
    • In fact, she was so good of a liar she was able to deceive her in her being a rotten person who enjoys rotten things. Sanji's Armor-Piercing Question seems to prove it and that deep down, she was not able to lie to herself anymore.
  • Creepy Child: When little Pudding snapped after all the abuse, she stabbed one of her bullies with a knife with a Slasher Smile and angry tears falling from her three eyes.
  • Crocodile Tears: At first glance, she looks like a normal human who cries like the rest of us, but if she's only crying from two eyes, then you know it's disgenuine. It's all part of her act to appear normal without revealing the existence of her Third Eye; when she cries from all three eyes, the tears are real. Unfortunately, Sanji doesn't know about the eye and takes her tears for face value. It isn't until he discovers this eye that he calls it beautiful, Pudding cries out of it, and Sanji realizes she isn't faking the tears this time.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: During her Villainous Breakdown after Sanji tells her that her Third Eye is beautiful, a Troubled Backstory Flashback shows that Pudding's past wasn't exactly easy. Big Mom may have wanted the powers of said Third Eye but she told her to hide it under her bangs because it looks weird. Plus adults called her a monster and she was bullied by other children for her eye until she snapped on them with a knife.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In a flashback to her Dark and Troubled Past, she was bullied so much that she lashed out at her childhood tormentors with a knife in an extreme fit of rage. This was what marked her Start of Darkness and deep descent into evil Broken Bird territory.
  • Dramatic Unmask: Of a sort. In Chapter 850's unsettling Wham Shot, she reveals her Third Eye that's always kept hidden by her fringe... along with her "true" personality when she says her equally unsettling Wham Line.
  • Easily Forgiven: Even though she had a very tragic Dark and Troubled Past and Freudian Excuse to explain why she became the way she did, she gets off relatively easily for: 1)Pretending to care about Sanji even after his fiance confided all his troubles to her, only to cruelly betray him in the worst possible way, 2)having Sanji's older sister Reiju severely injured to the point of requiring medical attention, and 3)trying to kill him on their wedding day, even after Sanji complimented her "ugly" Third Eye.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She has a major Freak Out when Sanji compliments her third eye as not a single person had ever said anything nice about it and she learned to hate it along with herself. Pudding assumes during the wedding battle Sanji is tricking her like she did to him, but Sanji just states she is deluding herself.
  • Eviler Than Thou: She laughs at the notion of the Germa 66 being a "mythical evil army", calling them naive and mocking Reiju about how they have no idea what they're dealing with regarding the Big Mom Pirates.
  • Evil Gloating: Not long after she reveals her deception to Reiju and, inadvertently, Sanji, who's eavesdropping outside her room, she goes on to mock Sanji's declaration of love to her and how pathetic he both looked and sounded while doing so, even making faces just to drive home the point of her cruelty.
  • Expy:
    • Pudding has a third eye. It could be a Shout-Out to Yuzo Takada's 3×3 Eyes, to Tenshinhan from Dragon Ball, or to Hosuke Sharaku from The Three-Eyed One, or possibly even Honoka from The Third: The Girl with the Blue Eye.
      • The reveal of her third eye follows the reveal of her real, evil personality. In 3x3 Eyes, the girl's third eye is a separate, more coldly logical personality. Furthermore, both Pai and Pudding make use of non-human familiars, with at least one capable of flight. Pudding's third eye is also a trait of a tribe of people who gain the power to hear the voice of all things when it fully awakens, similar to the elfin race called The Third in the titular series who have a third blue eye known as the Astral Eye and become capable of interfacing with technologies of the old, forgotten world when this eye turns red.
    • Her hair style, the fact she was wearing pink, and the fact her eyes were initially closed also bring to mind Nunnally Lamperouge.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Pudding is actually as evil and psychotic as her mother ("Only my family knows the real me!"); she also has a third eye. However she Used to Be a Sweet Kid before years of bullying and abuse caused her to snap completely. She later pulls a Heel–Face Turn after she falls in love with Sanji and helps the Straw Hats escape Totto Land.
  • Fake Memories: While it's not known if she can create false memories outright, she can falsify other people's memories thanks to her Devil Fruit.
  • Family Theme Naming: Shares this with most of her siblings; she's named after pudding, a dish that is usually a sweet dessert, but can be savory as well.
  • Foil:
    • To Reiju. Both are expert actors who hide their true nature and were at different times Sanji's "ray of hope". Pudding hides her sadistic nature behind an innocent face, while Reiju hides her compassion and empathy behind an aloof, cold-hearted façade. Pudding fooled Sanji into loving her and Reiju had to distance herself from Sanji despite greatly caring for her brother. Pudding is Sanji's false hope and betrayed him at his lowest, Reiju actually rescued Sanji in his darkest day. The contrast is most prominent in chapter 850, when they meet face to face: Pudding gleefully breaks character by revealing her contempt for Sanji and sadistic nature, while Reiju remains calm and composed "in character". Plus, both were abused by their parents in different ways (Judge modified Reiju so she wouldn't go against him, Big Mom mocked Pudding for her Third Eye and sees her as more of a potential tool than anything else) and said abuse shaped them, with Reiju as a Broken Bird Stepford Smiler and Pudding as a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds.
    • Also to her groom-to-be, Sanji. Both were horrifically abused in their childhoods, with Sanji being seen as a weak waste of space by his father and brothers, while Pudding was seen and treated as a monster for having a third eye. But while Sanji had love and support in the form of his (dead) mother and sister, Reiju, Pudding had no one to turn to, and the years of suffering torment alone caused her to become a thoroughly Broken Bird and Jerkass par none. Sanji is still a nice guy underneath his Jerk with a Heart of Gold tendencies, while Pudding wears a sweet and lovable mask to hide the broken nastiness underneath.
    • Pudding also provides an interesting foil to Boa Hancock. Both have features they're heavily ashamed about and keep hidden from the public (Hancock, her slave-brand; Pudding, her third eye). Both are initially enemies to the Straw Hats. And both have quite the harsh pasts. And they also both end up falling in-love with a member of the Straw Hats. However, while Hancock displays a cold, jerkass personality to the public and her softer, loving side around Luffy, Pudding is the other way around, showing a sweet, seemingly affectionate side to the public which hides her true personality underneath. There is also the obvious difference in their positions of power, Hancock being in-charge of the Kuja tribe, while Pudding is subservient to her mother. Even the ages in which they started falling in love are reversed - 31 year old Hancock becomes infatuated by 19 year old Luffy, while Pudding, who seems to be in her late teens or early twenties, falls for Sanji, who is 21 years old.
    • As of Chapter 893, Pudding becomes a foil to her older brother, Katakuri. Pudding dresses brightly like the majority of her older/younger siblings, while Katakuri looks like a Badass Biker with spikes and threatening tattoos. Pudding acts like a sweet girl but is really insane, sadistic, and broken, while Katakuri looks stoic and badass but behind closed doors is really a goofy glutton who is incredibly insecure about his "flaws". Both Pudding and Katakuri went through hell as children for being born with a physical abnormality that was out of their control, and they reacted to it in different ways - Pudding believed her Third Eye made her a monster, and changed herself to fit everyone's perceptions of her out of self-loathing and spite, but in reality, the extra eye didn't detract from her beauty at all. Katakuri's fanged mouth, however, does uglify him in the eyes of others, and he knows it, so he hid his mouth constantly and slowly built up an image of being a handsome, no-nonsense, and dependable older sibling so he wouldn't go through the same childhood humiliation again... but it's incredibly stressful and had it not been for his "snack times", he would've eventually snapped from the pressure. Their turning points came at the intervention of a Straw Hat; during their farce of a wedding, Sanji complimented Pudding's Third Eye, making her fall head-over-healls for him and turning her into an ally. Luffy saw Katakuri's mouth and sloppy eating habits yet chose to ignore them, which caused Katakuri to respect Luffy as a Worthy Opponent and discard his family's opinion of him to fight Luffy as himself.
  • For Want of a Nail: She is what Sanji could have turned into had no one been there to support him during his darkest days in the Germa Kingdom. While Sanji had his mother and older sister, Pudding eventually snapped from the pain and became a broken, sadistic monster.
  • Freakiness Shame: She apparently keeps her Third Eye hidden at all times, something that she finds shameful to everyone. Because of her Third Eye, she was horribly mocked about it by little kids and her own siblings; even her mom called it "weird" and told her to hide it under her bangs. She eventually came to believe she was a monster too and started acting like one. Part of the plan to assassinate the Vinsmokes was to take advantage of Sanji's expected shock and disgust when he first sees her third eye after lifting her veil to shoot him in the face. Sanji calling her third eye "beautiful" after seeing it up close for the first time causes her to break down in sincere tears.
  • Freudian Excuse: Not only was she raised by the psychopathic Big Mom (who's known to instill horrible values into her children), but she was also viciously bullied as a child for her Third Eye and was driven to insanity, coming to believe that she really was the creepy monstrosity everybody said she was. Having her enemy call her extra eye "beautiful" immediately causes her to suffer a Villainous Breakdown from the conflict of emotions. Having said enemy ask her if she was also deceiving herself helped her Breakdown further
  • Girlish Pigtails: Wearing them in the photo Sanji is shown of her, which is her first appearance. She also wears them in her debut chapter.
  • Good All Along: Sort of. At first, she was genuinely an evil, cruel Jerkass and was only pretending to be nice, appearing to be a case of Evil All Along. But it turns out that there was still a decent, incredibly damaged girl in there deep down, and Sanji manages to bring out her good side for real.
  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: Though she has big, round, Puppy-Dog Eyes whenever she's putting on her Nice Girl act, they become noticeably sharper and more dangerous looking when she's lapsing into her evil personality.
  • Gray Rain of Depression: In a moment of depressive loneliness, Pudding goes out to the balcony of her room while a downpour occurs, and has a Troubled Backstory Flashback of Big Mom treating her like a doll and her sister Lola running away from home. Her Hidden Eyes and forlorn expression as the rain soaks her makes it look like she's crying.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: It's mentioned that she's a half breed of the three-eyed tribe.
  • Hand Cannon: The barrel of her revolver is easily the size of her forearm.
  • Hate Sink: Immediately disliked by both Reiju and Luffy once she reveals who she really is. She loves making fun of Sanji's kindness, situation and faces, and the shocked reactions of the people she tricked. Everything she says and does, once she shows her true colors, makes her thoroughly unlikable. This is subverted later on though as it's revealed that there are good reasons behind her behavior, and she eventually proves her worth to the Straw Hats.
  • Heel–Face Turn: While her intentions are extremely hazy at first due to her Master Actor reputation and ambiguous actions, she later proves that she has indeed turned over a new leaf for real and is determined to help Sanji and his friends. However, what complicates the situation is the fact that she's nuts and keeps involuntarily lapsing back into her evil persona even though she genuinely loves Sanji and wants to help him. It makes for some moments that somehow manage to be both hilarious and sad at the same time.
  • Hello, Nurse!: In the anime, Vinsmoke Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji had heart-shaped eyes at the sight of her while they are having dinner with her mother, Big Mom.
  • Hidden Depths: A sweet girl twisted by the vicious bullying she received in childhood, which turned her into a duplicitous monster who hates herself so much that she thinks she is completely undeserving of love. This is exemplified in Chapter 902; while making fun of Sanji's wishes to get married, she sadly thinks to herself that no one will ever love a "hideous monster" like her.
  • Honey Trap: Is sent by Big Mom to attract and marry Sanji so she can lure his family into entering an alliance that is a complete farce to begin with, allowing Big Mom to murder all the Vinsmokes (and the Straw Hats), Red Wedding-style. Unfortunately for Big Mom though, it fails spectacularly when Pudding ends up falling for Sanji herself.
  • Inelegant Blubbering:
    • She cries her heart out, snot bubbles and all, when Sanji shares his woes with her. Turns out she's a great actress and it was all a part of her ploy.
    • She does it again when Sanji calls her Third Eye "beautiful" during the wedding ceremony. The flashbacks that come from this, showing her Dark and Troubled Past, show that this time she's crying for real.
    • While preparing to finally part ways, Sanji essentially breaks her when he tell her that he was still happy to have her as a fiancee even after everything that's happened; she cries her hardest yet and shows the full works- snot bubbles, trembling, drooling, and crying from the third eye and all.
  • In Love with the Mark: Pudding was expected to kill her groom-to-be, Sanji, as part of Big Mom's plan to kill the Vinsmokes and steal their cloning technology. What she didn't expect was Sanji complimenting her third eye, which everyone kept ridiculing her whole life, and now she's madly in love with him.
  • Insane Equals Violent: Whenever she lapses into her demented "evil Pudding" personality while talking to the Straw Hats, her insanity is typically expressed through threats of violence and death against them.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: She is deeply in love with Sanji, but is willing to let him go for the sake of his friends. While this turns out to have simply been a ploy at the time, she later does end up playing this trope straight when she- after really falling for Sanji- decides to help him escape Whole Cake Island alive and safe from her mother rather than being with him.
  • Jerkass: She was quite an arrogant jerk before going through Character Development and a genuine Heel–Face Turn, reveling in tricking people into thinking she was good and indulging in psychopathic behaviors just like her mother. However, Sanji believed that she was fooling herself during this time just as much as she fooled others, and eventually, his kindness and love cause her to have a change of heart. This is somewhat Played With though. because her former persona has manifested as an evil Split Personality that still hurls insults and death threats to the Straw Hats even as the now-good Pudding herself wishes to help them.
  • Just Between You and Me: Twice, with a third indirect example- She tells Luffy about the plan to kill Sanji, the Straw Hats, and the Vinsmoke family, since he's currently trapped in a book prison and can't share the information. She also tells Reiju about the plan, but edits her memories so she won't remember any of it. Lastly, she and Big Mom go over the plan once again, while a captured Brook was in earshot. All three times are justified in that there was no way the truth could have normally leaked out, but unfortunately for her, all three times end up biting her in the ass due to unforeseeable events. Jimbei ends up breaking Luffy out, making him that much more motivated to spoil the event, Sanji happened to be nearby when Pudding confessed to Reiju and overheard the entire plan, and immediately tells her the truth, and the rest of the Straw Hats managed to break Brook out by the skin of their teeth.
  • Kick the Dog:
  • Killer Rabbit: Despite being seemingly harmless, she was able to injure and capture the superhuman Reiju with ease.
  • Kissing Discretion Shot: Though it happens just off-screen from the audiences' point of view, she tearfully kisses Sanji goodbye right before he prepares to leave Whole Cake Island. Unfortunately, however, she uses her powers to erase his memory of the event immediately after it happens.
  • Knife Nut: After finally snapping from the abuse, she got her revenge on some bullies as a child by chasing them down and stabbing them with a knife, to their horror. She also clumsily brandishes a knife against the Straw Hats when she first meets them, although at that point, she was still putting on her Nice Girl act and was most likely merely pretending to not know how to handle a knife.
  • Lack of Empathy:
    • She laughs at her own cruel deception of the Straw Hats and Vinsmokes, which says a lot about her personality considering this is coming after Sanji told her about his family woes (on top of her already knowing firsthand what hardships this marriage was putting him and his crew through).
    • She also was on the receiving end, from her own mother and other children, due to her Third Eye.
    • Ultimately defied. She's just deeply hurt inside and lashing out, which had the unfortunate side-effect of dulling her own sense of empathy towards those who suffered as much as her, like Sanji. As soon as she's given a taste of compassion in a way that healed an old wound in her heart, she realized that it was wrong to let cruelty and spite guide her hands, and became an ally of the Straw Hats.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Pudding possesses the power of the Memo-Memo-Fruit, which allows her to alter and remove the memories of her victims.
  • Like Mother Unlike Daughter: Pudding is a sweet-hearted, beautiful, normal-sized girl who is a chocolatier and a Supreme Chef who greatly contrasts her mother, an insane Big Eater and a huge Gonk. Nami and Brook lampshade how Big Mom was able to birth such a kind person like Pudding. The lampshade may have been foreshadowing. Physically they're different but her real personality shows she became her mother's daughter.
    • Ultimately zigzagged - she's still the kindhearted person she once was, but it's buried underneath thick layers upon layers of anger and resentment as her evil behavior was revealed to be her lashing out at the torment she received in her childhood years. Once Sanji gave her her first compliment, she not only falls madly in love, but she sees the error of her ways and decides to help the Straw Hats escape Big Mom.
  • Love at First Sight: Sanji's smooth attitude, similar love for cooking as hers, and charms immediately caused her to fall in love with him. Though as much as she'd like to marry him, she's unwilling to snatch him away from the Straw Hats. However, this is actually averted; she originally thought little of Sanji and was just going along with her mother's plan to deceive and murder him at their wedding. It's only after he shows her immense kindness about her Third Eye that she realizes his worth and falls in love with him for real.
  • Love Hurts: Pudding goes through his while looking at the memory reel of Sanji sharing a kiss with her, as the Straw Hats escape Totto Land. It makes her realize that she will probably never see Sanji again, and she turns into a sobbing wreck.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Because Sanji was the first person to show her kindness ever, she starts flip-flopping between her "good" and "evil" personalities due to her inner conflict on what to truly feel about him. Because of this, she comes off as a Tsundere who threatens Sanji one minute then falls madly in love with him the moment he says something nice to her.
  • Luminescent Blush: She tends to flush bright red when she talks to or talks about Sanji, both before she fell in love with him and afterward (initially, the blushing was just a part of her acting).
  • MacGuffin Girl: She's Big Mom's favorite because her third eye will give her the ability to read poneglpyhs, eventually. In theory, anyway.
  • Master Actor: She can give the main antagonist of Kampfer a run for her money in this, and that character is so convincing, the audience suspects she has a split personality disorder of some sort.
  • Meaningful Name: As mentioned above, she's named after a dish that can be either sweet or savory. "Pudding" is also used as a term of endearment, usually between married couples (which is ironic since she and Sanji were in an Arranged Marriage but don't want to get married due to conflict of interests and Pudding doesn't love him at all... at least at first).
  • Memory-Wiping Crew: A one-person example thanks to her devil fruit powers. Besides murdering the groom, she was supposed to edit all the memories of those who attended the wedding, so no one will ever know of their plan to murder the Vinsmokes or Pudding's evil behavior.
  • Mood-Swinger: Whenever she switched between her personas before her wedding, she had excellent control over her emotions. Post-Wedding and exposure to Sanji's genuine kindness, her feelings starts acting akin of a child running in a revolving door at full speed. Her mind continuously going in a Tsundere-loop which swifts between swooning, threatening, apologizing, helping and back to threatening again, much to her embarrassment and everyone else's confusion.
  • Never Be Hurt Again: The reason for her behavior: after being bullied one too many times as a child, she snapped and stabbed anyone who'd dare laugh at her for her Third Eye. When Sanji called her third eye "beautiful", she started crying.
  • Nice Girl: Very much so. Unlike her cruel mother, Pudding is an absolute sweetheart. Nami notes she's "far too forgiving" upon meeting her, while Brook wonders if she's really Big Mom's daughter at all... except she isn't nice at all. She's actually one of Big Mom's favourite children, and sadistic enough to feign kindness to the Straw Hats and Sanji just to get them to drop their guard. It works, and she plans to slaughter all of them on her mother's orders. The bits of niceness she did have as a child all but disappeared when she snapped, and even after The Reveal of 862, she's barely beginning to truly get said niceness back, and is still unable to control the resulting mood swings coming from it.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: The only reason that the Straw Hats learned about Big Mom's true intentions for the Vinsmokes is because she ran her mouth more than she needed to. She could simply have edited Reiju's memories without telling her anything while Sanji happened to be in earshot, and she didn't need to confront Luffy and Nami at all once they were captured. This information allowed the Straw Hats, once they regrouped, to seek an alliance with the Firetank Pirates, and together they crashed the wedding party.
  • Nightmare Face: For such a pretty girl, her third eye and creepily satisfied laugh as she reveals her true nature to Reiju makes for a very effective one.
  • Parental Favoritism: She states that she's Big Mom's favorite and spoiled heavily. Though Big Mom seems to only do so because of her third eye and believing that once it opens that it'll lead her to Raftel and be her key to becoming the Pirate King. While Pudding enjoys the perks, she is annoyed by Big Mom constantly asking about if her third eye has awakened its power yet. In Chapter 862, flashbacks show that even Big Mom disdained her third eye and told Pudding to cover it with her bangs — the favoritism only started when Big Mom discovered what Pudding's third eye could do.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: In an unusual application of this trope, she uses her bangs to cover a third eye on her forehead. In fact, Big Mom expressly told her to grow her bangs out to hide it.
  • Perfectly Arranged Marriage: Or it would be if Sanji wasn't so attached to the Straw-Hats. Sanji loves her (natch), she loves him, and she's even a great cook like Sanji, as Luffy and Chopper can attest. They'd really be just about perfect for one another... if only she had not snapped from the shit she went through, and her nice personality wasn't all an act. Ironically, it's only after the engagement inevitably went down the drain that she actually falls in love with Sanji.
  • Personality Powers: While she's already a skillful liar, her power to modify memories just helps her true, duplicitous nature.
  • The Reveal:
    • In chapter 850. She reveals to Reiju (and Luffy and Nami via a Flashback) that she's been Evil All Along, was helping her mother manipulate the Straw Hats from the start, and that the alliance with the Vinsmokes is really just a ploy to get them all in one spot and murder them. She also reveals that she has a Third Eye on her forehead.
    • There is another in 862: She was Evil All Along, yes, but she wasn't born evil and had a terrible past because of her Third Eye.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: Her Weapon of Choice is a very large revolver with special "candy-jacketed bullets" that can even pierce through the hardened body of a Super Soldier like Reiju. Befitting her royal status, it seems to be pretty advanced for the One Piece world as it appears to lack the usual flintlock mechanic.
  • Royal Brat: Subverted. While her family is rich, insane, and evil, she herself used to be sweet, but then snapped and became evil after the bullying over her third eye became too much. Also, though her mother dotes on her greatly, Pudding actually is tired of her mother's over-protection and excessive spoiling of her, and would rather do things her own way. Her childhood wasn't pleasant at all.
  • Sadist: A Consummate Liar, who doesn't care about anyone and even gets sick of her mother pampering her, she successfully plays off the innocent Nice Girl and enjoys Luffy's reaction when she reveals the truth about herself. She also goes completely out of her way to shoot and then reveal herself to Reiju for no other reason than to torment her.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: Played with. After the wedding, the nasty side of her personality tries its damn best to convince everybody (including herself) that she is not in love with Sanji and that they aren't married. The latter is actually true, but everybody who didn't witness the wedding just assume they are indeed married by now, which nasty Pudding doesn't want to happen, except it's obvious that her nice side fancies the idea.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: This trope becomes vital in the Whole Cake Island saga. Initially, she despised her arranged groom, Vinsmoke Sanji, and happily collaborated with her cruel mother, Big Mom, in what was supposed to be a fake wedding that would finish with them killing Sanji and his Big, Screwed-Up Family to take a hold of their wealth and scientific discoveries. Thing is, Sanji just happened to tell Pudding at some point that her Third Eye is really pretty... and Pudding, a very bitter Broken Bird who had gone the Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds way because of said Third Eye, collapsed in tears and couldn't bring herself to kill him. This means, Sanji's well-timed kind words completely undid Big Mom's plan, saved his and his family's lives, and made Pudding genuinely fall in love with him (as much as her severely broken mind allows her).
  • Slasher Smile: Combined with her hidden Third Eye, it makes one hell of a Nightmare Face. Later, we see it again in a flashback, but unlike the former example, it's much more heartbreaking to see.
  • Spanner in the Works: Katakuri foresaw her collapsing instead of killing Sanji, without knowing why. Then Sanji saw her Third Eye for the first time and called it pretty- something not even her own mother found attractive- which touched her so much she broke down crying. And after this, Pudding secretly began to work to help save the Straw Hats from impending doom in earnest.
  • Split Personality: By chapter 876, it's become apparent that her recent experiences have fractured her mind; after falling in love with Sanji for real, she rapidly goes back and forth between swooning over him and yelling death threats at him- sometimes at the same time! Luckily though, she's still cognizant enough to lend him a hand even as she lapses back into "evil Pudding".
  • Start of Darkness: Her being constantly and viciously bullied for having a Third Eye, something she had no control over.
  • Supreme Chef: Also like Sanji. Her café was made from a homemade chocolate, and as Luffy and Chopper can testify, it was drop-dead delicious. She's also an Evil Chef.
    • She also expresses absolute confidence in her ability to create a cake that it took the Head Chef days to make. And she needs to do it in a matter of hours, if not less, because of Big Mom rampaging on her tail...
    • Chapter 879 reveals that Pudding's skill as a chocolatier made her an acceptable replacement for the runaway Lola as Minister of Chocolatown... except Pudding has no intention of taking over and hopes Lola would reclaim it again, thinking she makes a far better Minister than she will.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: After being called a monster and bullied one too many times, a very young Pudding went into Creepy Child territory and chased her bullies with a knife. This carried over into adulthood, which is why she became such a sadist. Her case was also so bad that she kept believing herself to be the monster everyone saw her as.... until Sanji makes her realize that isn't true at all.
  • Third Eye: She has three eyes, the third of which is on her forehead. She hid this from the Straw Hats for most of the time using her hair. According to Big Mom, it should help her read the Poneglyphs' content without understanding the language, like how Roger used his mysterious ability of "hearing the voices of all things" to read Poneglyphs. Said third eye is also a great source of self-loathing for Pudding, as everyone around her called it a creepy, monstrous thing.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Once she falls in love with Sanji, she naturally becomes much friendlier and even ends up being an ally to the Straw Hats.
  • Transferable Memory: Thanks to her Devil Fruit, the Memory-Memory Fruit, she can alter people's memories by making them tangible in the form of a film reel, and edit or remove them as she pleases.
  • Troubled Backstory Flashback: Pudding has one of these as she stands outside on the balcony of her room, remembering how Big Mom treated her like a submissive, obedient doll, and how her beloved older sister Lola bade her goodbye before running away from home. Coincidentally, she's soaked by a downpour of candy rain.
  • Tsundere: Fits the trope to a 'T' after going through a Heel–Face Turn, though in large part due to her Split Personality; while Pudding herself is now deeply in love with Sanji and only wants to help him, her evil persona keeps emerging and causes her to go back and forth between swooning over him, insulting him, and declaring that she wants to kill him while blushing and helping him out at the same time. In Chapter 879, Pudding finds so Sanji's presence so "annoying" that she opted to ride while rolled up in her own flying carpet than sit in the same space as Sanji... but when Sanji makes her promise not to let herself fall, his kindness makes Pudding tear up and fall madly in love with him again.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Her mom is a terrifyingly huge Gonk. She's of normal size and proportions, and extremely pretty even with her supposedly freakish and ugly Third Eye, as Sanji can attest.
  • Undercover as Lovers: Sort of. Thanks to her Devil Fruit giving her the ability to affect memories, she gives the chefs of Cacao Island an edited version of what happened at the wedding (Sanji and Pudding got married, but a freak storm ruined the wedding cake and now Big Mom's mad). This results in the chefs assuming they're officially husband and wife, which allows Sanji and Pudding (and Chiffon) to recreate the wedding cake for Big Mom without interruptions.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: The flashback at 862 shows that Pudding used to be a normal little girl, save for her Third Eye. Then, all the verbal and physical abuse coming from Big Mom, adults, and other kids piled up... and she snapped. Now she's one hell of a Jerkass and a willing accomplice in Big Mom's schemes. Eventually, Sanji brought out her hidden kindness with a single compliment, turning Pudding into the sweet person she once was (for the most part).
  • Villainous Breakdown: Despite everything she's done, Sanji still calls her third eye "beautiful". Having spent her whole life being bullied by others (including Big Mom) for her supposedly "freakish" appearance, Sanji's sincere admiration of her third eye causes her to have a sobbing meltdown on the spot, unable to shoot him.
  • Walking Spoiler: Everything about her is a lie. Her whole innocent image is crushed with a Wham Shot revealing her third eye and sadistic nature. And then, later, even those perceptions are shaken as it's shown what exactly led her to become such a huge Jerkass (in the form of a Troubled Backstory Flashback, which wouldn't happen if she was lying again), and that she's genuinely moved by Sanji's admiration of her third eye. She also later pulls a Heel–Face Turn and genuinely falls in love with Sanji, adding yet another spoilerific twist to her plotline.
  • Wham Line: She seems to have a penchant for dropping big lines, as she has at least three:
    Pudding: "Quit dreaming you fool! Me, marrying that little punk? Never in a billion years!"
    Pudding: "What the Hell is that idiot saying?! Are you kidding me?! Never once, ever since the day I was born, not a single time... No one has ever called this eye "beautiful"...!"
    Pudding: "What I'm really after isn't anything for Mama or this country. If we don't stop mama as soon as we can... he and his friends are going to be killed!
  • Wham Shot:
    • During her Evil All Along moment, the panel zooms in on her creepy Nightmare Face and her exposed Third Eye, revealing herself as the then-unnamed three-eyed girl sitting with Big Mom in the Fish-Man Island arc. Combined with the aforementioned Wham Line above this trope, it makes the scene as creepy as it sounds.
    • There's another in 862, specifically about how all three of her eyes start tearing, and it shows her crying sincere tears after Sanji called her Third Eye beautiful. It's followed by a flashback of her Dark and Troubled Past.
  • Why Can't I Hate You?: After Sanji gives her Third Eye its first compliment ever, Pudding collapses sobbing on her knees, desperately trying to convince herself to kill her groom-to-be just like she planned with Big Mom, but is left unable to due to her conflicted emotions. She then tries to compose herself and shoot Sanji directly, but her eyes are still tearing and Sanji keeps questioning about her motives. Eventually, this causes her to develop a Split Personality, with her evil side just as madly in love with Sanji as the good side, but insisting aloud that she hates him. The anime takes it further by having Pudding tearfully yelling at Sanji about her "true" self, yet her hands holding the Candy Revolver are shaking.
  • Wingding Eyes: After falling for Sanji, him calling her beautiful is enough for her to get hearts in all three eyes and start foaming at the mouth with a Luminescent Blush.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: She suffered emotional and verbal abuse at the hands of her mother and scores of other kids as a child due to her Third Eye, which- when combined with Big Mom's dubious "parenting" methods- caused her to become a shallow psychopath by adulthood. Luckily though, Sanji helps her get past this (for the most part).
  • You Have Failed Me: Downplayed; Her brother Daifuku slaps her across the face for failing to kill Sanji and then attempts to get the job done himself.

    Charlotte Flampe 

Charlotte Flampe

Voiced by: Chiwa Saito

Age: 15

Birthday: February 11th

Debut: Chapter 891 (Manga), Episode 865 (Anime)

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

"Everyone wants to be Katakuri's favorite! But I'm the most beloved and popular little sister! I'm the girl that'll become the little sister king!"

The 36th daughter of the Charlotte Family, Flampe is the leader of the Special Forces, the captain of the Katakuri Fan Club and Totto Land's Minister of Honey.


  • Bad Boss: Stabs one of her underlings with a fork when he can't land a hit on Luffy.
  • Big Brother Attraction: Disturbingly, in addition to being obsessed with him in general, it's heavily implied that Charlotte Flampe has a bit more than just familial love for her brother Katakuri; she squees, blushes, and gets hearts in her eyes at the prospect of him noticing and praising her. However, being cruel and sadistic, she also does a complete 180 and turns on him when she sees his true, monstrous face.
  • Big Brother Worship: Is infatuated with Katakuri and is helping in his fight mainly to score points with him. She's completely disgusted upon seeing his mouth.
  • Blow Gun: Her Weapon of Choice, loaded with paralytic darts.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: One of Big Mom's youngest children, she's extremely bratty and demands admiration and love from her older siblings to the point of being obsessive.
  • Bullying a Dragon: She tries to gun down Luffy and is flabbergasted her men can't hit him. After Katakuri reveals his true appearance to her, she spits on him and vows to ruin him socially. He ignores her and she gets floored by his and Luffy's clashing Conqueror's Haki.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: A sister variation. She mentions having to fight her other siblings for Katakuri's attention, and when some of her subordinates also express admiration for Katakuri, Flampe angrily yells that no one cares about them. Then when she sees Katakuri's true nature with her own eyes, she cruelly rejects and humiliates him; at this point Katakuri has learned not to care.
  • Combat Pragmatist: She and her men take potshots at Luffy during his fight with Katakuri. After a hit leaves him open to a devastating blow from Katakuri, her older brother is incensed that she would interfere in his battle and wounds himself to keep things even, then, completely angry, he tells Flampe to not step in the fight anymore.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Her plan to humiliate Katakuri by showing his true face. In hindsight, she didn't think to take into account that there are other siblings in the family who grew up with Katakuri as children, and thus knew what he looks like outside the stoic, handsome facade he presents in public. One example of this is Brulee, who knows about his fanged mouth and still loves him regardless of his flaws.
  • Dramatically Missing the Point: She's quite shallow, which leads to her doing things like dismissing Luffy's Determinator status as uncool even as Katakuri is becoming concerned that Luffy keeps getting stronger the longer he fights. When Katakuri injures himself to keep the fight between him and Luffy fair and finally overcomes his Slave to PR tendency around her, she declares him "disgusting" and "lame" rather than realizing the strength of character those acts showed.
  • Hate Sink: She is shown to be a very despicable bitch which is especially driven home when she loses respect for Katakuri after he willingly showed his face to her for interfering in his fight with Luffy. When he and Luffy combined their Conqueror's Haki to knock out Flampe and her crew, she gets absolutely no sympathy from the readers.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: She thought Katakuri would be happy with her interference in his fight with Luffy. He's outraged instead. She follows it up by threatening to ruin his image in front of everyone, when he's past caring by that point.
  • It's All About Me: Her entire motivation for helping Katakuri seems to stem solely from her desire to gloat over the other young sisters in the family, as she turns on him instantly as soon as she realizes he's not someone they would respect if they saw his face. Accordingly, she changes her goal to ruining his reputation to make herself more "popular" among them.
  • Jerkass: Big time. She proclaims herself to be Katakuri's biggest fan, but the moment Katakuri reveals his fanged mouth and splatters blood on her by stabbing himself, she immediately turns on him and ridicules him, calling him a "monster" and has her crew take pictures so she could show everyone and humiliate him. Even discounting that whole incident, she's still a very unpleasant person to be around in general; she constantly brags about herself aloud and casually insults her own subordinates for no real reason.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: She interferes with Katakuri's fight, weakens Luffy so he can be severely wounded, and ridicules her brother's ugly, fanged mouth, pressing Katakuri's Trauma Button by calling him a "pelican eel" and has her crew take humiliating pictures. She ends up on the receiving end of Luffy and Katakuri's Conqueror's Haki and knocked unconscious.
  • Not Quite Flight: Has some sort of ability to float and bounce, almost never being shown on the ground.
  • Retcon: She was originally introduced as the 33rd daughter of Big Mom, causing a brief stir when that meant she at 15 years old was older than Pudding. This was corrected to her being the 36th daughter.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Doesn't seem to appreciate that Luffy is genuinely a dangerous pirate and is shocked when she learns he has Conqueror's Haki. Taken up a notch when she rages at Katakuri after seeing his true looks. She seems entirely convinced he and Luffy, both fully fledged One Man Armies, are going to regret making her angry. She and her henchmen can't even stay conscious when the two ignore them and get serious in their fight.

    Charlotte Anana 

Charlotte Anana

Voiced by: Naomi Ozora

Age: 8

Birthday: April 17th

Debut: Chapter 845 (Manga), Episode 809 (Anime)

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

The 39th daughter and youngest child of the Charlotte Family. Despite her cute appearance, she's quite violent, as she loves mutilating her stuffed animals with a knife.


  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Zigzagged; she's the youngest of the Charlottes, and she's so psychotically cruel that one of her siblings wants her dead. At the same time, in Flampe's surveys, some of Anana's older siblings ranked her as their third favorite younger sister.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: While eight years old might be too much for a baby, she's the youngest of 85 siblings, whose oldest is fifty years old.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Exaggerated and justified. Even at a very young age, she displays disturbingly psychotic behavior by playing with knives, and using them to mutilate her stuffed toys and torment her older siblings, especially Dolce and Dragee, who complain of having their balloons popped by her. As a result, some of Anana's siblings want her dead. She's a prime example of what happens when a child is raised by an insane, hedonistic parent in a wealthy household that allows anything to happen within its walls.
  • Cain and Abel: Anana and her siblings don't seem to get along very well; her brothers Dolce and Dragée in particular hate her for constantly popping their balloons. One of her other siblings wishes to kill her for being such a rotten kid; disturbingly, Big Mom is completely fine with this.
  • Creepy Child: She mutilates her stuffed toys with knives! It says a lot when even some of her siblings don't get along with her. Of course, her mother doesn't see anything wrong in this.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Subverted with her relationship with her siblings, who hate her for being a sadistic and homicidal little terror. One of said siblings even expresses a desire to kill Anana for being "rotten to the core". Still, she's been voted as the third favorite younger sister by some of her other siblings.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Anana is an adorable little kid who enjoys mutilating her stuffed toys with knives and sadistically tormenting her siblings.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Played with. She's very feminine, and has many stuffed animals, but doesn't exactly love them, since she enjoys cutting them open.
  • Kids Are Cruel: She enjoys popping the balloons of her brothers Dolce and Dragée, earning their hatred, among other things. Her other siblings don't seem to like her either, with one expressing a wish to kill her.
  • Perpetual Frowner: As shown by her concept art, she doesn't smile; she only looks depressingly sad.
  • Pink Is Feminine: Has a very cute and feminine appearance and, of course, she has pink hair and wears a short pink dress.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She has red eyes and has inherited her mother's homicidal tendencies.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Absolutely no! She's an eight years old kid with pink hair and wears pink, but she's anything but a sweetie.
  • Spoiled Brat: Big Mom supports her daughter's psychotic behaviour, and when the head chef refuses to give her knives, she complains to her mother.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Thinks that mutilating her own toys with knives is fun, and also enjoys tormenting her other siblings, like popping the baloons of Dolce and Dragée. Her siblings hate her so much that one of them desires to kill her for being so rotten.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has long pink hair like her mother.

Combatants

    General 
Members of the Big Mom Pirates who are not part of the Charlotte Family and are specialized in combat. They seem to be the ones most often sent out of Totto Land on missions.
  • Almighty Janitor: While ranked lower than Big Mom, the Three Sweet Commanders and the executives, all combatants of the Big Mom Pirates are no slouch in fighting themselves and seem superhuman compared to normal people.
  • Chess Motifs: All combatants have chess-themed ranks, with Tamago as a Knight, Bobbin as a Bishop, and Capone Bege as a Rook.

    "Sweeper" Bobbin 

"Sweeper" Bobbin

Debut: Chapter 651 (Manga), Episode 571 (Anime)

Bounty: 105,500,000 Berries

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

A Bishop-ranked combatant who is able to hypnotize people and put them to sleep by bobbing his head.

He has a bounty of 105,500,000 berries.


  • BFS: He carries a very massive sabre on his back that dwarfs him in size.
  • Character Tics: Has a habit of bobbing his head sideways (hence his name) while talking.
  • Death by Adaptation: While the manga doesn't go back to it once he's been shot, leaving matters uncertain, the anime confirms Bobbin is killed.
  • Evil Laugh: His "Boyoyon" (which also makes it an onomatopoeia for spring coils).
  • Fat Bastard: A short, rotund-bodied, ugly-looking pirate working for Big Mom. Also burned down an entire country who didn't pay Big Mom in time, and has the gall to laugh about it.
  • Forced Sleep: Bobbin is able to make others sleep by ringing his head like a bell. Anyone that hears the sound is knocked out.
  • Meaningful Name: His name references bobblehead dolls, and his habit has him bobbing his head sideways while talking to someone. It also seems to be related to his Forced Sleep powers as he's seen bobbing his head to put subordinates to sleep. Alternatively, it could reference Halloween's "apple-bobbing" tradition.
  • One-Man Army: Apparently, he alone was enough to burn down a whole country by himself, just because they couldn't pay the tribute.
  • Perpetual Smiler: He is always seen with a face-wide grin. He only loses it when he's shot from afar by Bege's men, implied to be Vito.
  • Red Baron: He's known as "Sweeper".
  • Villainous Glutton: He enjoys eating as he takes Sanji's bento he has made for Luffy and proceed to eat it without caring. Also, he razed a country who couldn't pay tribute to Big Mom in time and laughs about it.

Devil Fruit: Egg-Egg Fruit

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tamago_anime_8.png
Click here to see his Viscount Hiyoko form (SPOILER

"Despite being enemies, I've always respected you as a powerful opponent, Pedro, captain of the Nox Pirates! Every time we would see each other, the scars on our left eyes would both begin to itch!"

A longleg and Knight-ranked combatant, Pekoms' partner in collecting the monthly tribute of sweets from Fish-Man Island. He has eaten the Egg-Egg Fruit (Tama Tama no Mi), an unclassified Devil Fruit that turns his body into an egg that, if cracked open, will make him evolve first into Viscount Hiyoko (a chick), and then if cracked again into Count Niwatori (a rooster), each transformation making him stronger than before.

He has a bounty of 429,000,000 berries.


  • Affably Evil: He is as gentlemanly as a pirate can get. He is also far more reasonable and less aggressive than Pekoms.
  • Antagonist in Mourning: Despite him and Pedro being mortal enemies, he is visibly upset when he hears that Pedro died in a suicide attack against Perospero.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Pedro, who he considers a Worthy Opponent.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: While it's still unknown what exactly he is the Baron of, he still works for Big Mom.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: Seems to have an egg theme going on. His name means "egg" in Japanese, and his body and face are egg-shaped. He also loves talking in egg metaphors, and wears an egg shell in addition to his pink suit. His Devil Fruit power is also related to eggs. His evolved forms continue the trend by being life stages of a chicken.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's the most polite and reasonable member of the Big Mom Pirates to be shown so far, but he's a fearsome and bloodthirsty combatant with a bounty almost as high as Luffy's.
  • Came Back Strong: His Devil Fruit allows him to revive from fatal attacks stronger than he was before. He does this by splitting apart like an egg and reforming from the yolk in chicken form. He also went from Baron Tamago to "Viscount Chick" and then "Duke Chicken" as his subordinates put it.
  • Cultured Badass: He's based on an aristocrat, but he's able to equal or possibly exceed Pedro in battle.
  • Expy:
    • Of Humpty Dumpty, keeping with the Fairy Tale theme of the Big Mom Pirates. He also resembles Dr. Eggman in terms of design.
    • Tamago has long legs, an egg-shaped body, and a mustache, like Dr. Eggman. Even his name (see below) translates to "Egg Baron"!
    • With his egg-like head, stiff moustache, little glasses, cane, dandified outfit, unflappable demeanour, and French accent, he bears a strong resemblance to Hercule Poirot.
  • Eye Scream: He is blinded in his left eye, this was done by Pedro years ago.
  • Glasses Pull: When he and his forces finally corner Pedro, he does this, revealing that the scar over his left eye blinded him.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a scar running down over his left eye, and while he doesn't seem at all like a particularly evil man, he still does the bidding of Big Mom.
  • Gratuitous French: Tamago says French words at the end of statements, bon. In the Viz translation, Tamago randomly substitutes English words for French cognates in his speech (such as "militaire" in place of "military").
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Pedro cuts him in half during their duel, but his Devil Fruit power just causes him to split apart like an egg and come back to life. This is repeated again with the same results, so Pedro gets wise and switches to explosives.
  • Honest Advisor: While it's not fully clear what his standing is, Tamago is a highly-enough ranked member of Big Mom's crew that he can talk back to her children without facing repercussions. Everyone seems to respect him and value his advice, from the Minister-level Mont-d'Or to a Sweet Commander like Smoothie.
  • Kryptonite-Proof Suit: In his rematch with Pedro, Tamago wears elastic tights that cancel out the charge of Electro, which caused him to be defeated the first time when he was caught unprepared by an electric shock that ran through him and his sword.
  • Made of Iron: Even after getting blown up with loads of dynamites, he (as Duke Chicken) turns up okay in the next chapter.
  • Meaningful Name: "Tamago" means "egg", which is quite fitting considering his body and face shape. His devil fruit power is also egg based.
  • Nice Hat: It doubles as a cup of tea on a saucer.
  • Noble Demon: He works for Big Mom, but he's not shown doing anything really evil, and is a polite and honorable fighter. He's even saddened when his Arch-Enemy Pedro dies in battle.
  • One-Winged Angel: His Devil Fruit power basically causes him to do this every time his body is split, ending in him becoming a massive and purportedly extremely strong rooster-man. His sword also splits into two smaller daggers for more rapid-fire one-two stab attacks.
  • Only Sane Man: Tamago, compared to the other members seen so far, seems to be the most reasonable and calm. He's also the one who isn't so blinded by arrogance that he recognizes that the incident with Big Mom falling victim to unstoppable hunger and Whole Cake Island's destruction is an unprecedented disaster and gets mad at another member for not realizing the Straw Hats have put a dent in their welfare.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Pekoms' Red. As stated above, he's far more reasonable and less aggressive than Pekoms.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Is pretty dapper for an underling of Big Mom. Just look at his page image! Even his evolutions manage to preserve his suaveness.
  • Sinister Shades: Wears a pair of triangular ones. Despite his affiliations, he's more affable and reasonable than most of Big Mom's crew.
  • Spin Attack: Tamago uses his long legs to perform powerful whirling kicks with such speed he turns into a wheeling blur. As he evolves, he becomes capable of taking it up a notch to a spinning twister.
  • Talks Like a Simile: He loves his egg metaphors.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: His egg-shaped upper body is quite large compared to his long, skinny legs. Just like Dr. Eggman. Justified in that thanks to his Devil Fruit, Tamago is a literal egg man.
  • Transformation Is a Free Action: Averted. When he starts transforming a second time, Pedro decided to attack before he could reform, trying to blow him up with a bundle of explosives. He survived, but points for effort.
  • Verbal Tic: Likes to add "bon" or other French words at the end of his sentences, bon. Upon evolving, he develops the cry of "Piyo!" ("Chirp!") as a chick and then the crow of a rooster as a chicken.
  • Worthy Opponent: He sees Pedro as this, as both of them blinded the other during Pedro's raid on Big Mom's territories 5 years ago. He is also the only member of Big Mom's crew apart from Pekoms to be visibly upset over Pedro's sacrifice.
  • Wound That Will Not Heal: Even when Tamago evolves and seems to gain a new eye, his evolutions cannot restore his lost eye completely and his eye scar persists.

Pekoms

Voiced by: Nobuo Tobita (JP), Chris Guerrero (EN)

Age: 27

Birthday: April 11th

Bounty: 330,000,000 Berries

Debut: Chapter 651 (Manga), Episode 570 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Turtle-Turtle Fruit

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

"In a mindless state, I couldn't hear anyone except for one man, Big Bro Pedro!! Gaoh!! I don't know why I could only hear him but he always managed to calm me down even though I was just a mindless beast!! In other words there is no one left in this world who can stop my rampage."

A lion mink and a combatant of the Big Mom Pirates. He and Baron Tamago are the first members of the Big Mom Pirates to appear in the story, during the Fish-Man Island Arc. He has eaten the Turtle-Turtle Fruit (Kame Kame no Mi), a Zoan that allows him to transform into a tortoise.

He has a bounty of 330,000,000 berries.


  • Afro Asskicker: A powerful Mink with a large bounty and a nice blonde 'fro.
  • Badass Adorable: His eyes are ridiculously tiny and utterly defuse any seriousness when he's trying to threaten people. He also has a bounty of 330,000,000 Berries and expressed confidence that only he and Capone Bege would be needed to retrieve Caesar Clown and deal with the Straw Hats.
  • The Berserker: Like other Minks looking upon the full moon will transform him into an uncontrollable beast. Only Pedro could ever have calmed him down, and he knows with Pedro being dead, Pekoms will either die from Big Mom's crew attacking him or the berserker state draining his life force.
  • Butt-Monkey:
    • His interactions with Luffy following being shot and abandoned by Bege have him suffering one indignity after another, to the point where he declares Luffy "the worst savior ever" after Luffy decides to carry him around like a backpack since he's injured.
    • And it continues into the Totto Land arc. After he is shot (again) into shark-infested waters by Bege, he is rescued and nurtured to help by the Sun Pirates... who proceed to tie him to a rock (with food) so he won't reveal their plans to leave Totto Land and betray their alliance to Big Mom. And when he gets out of that, he runs to Whole Cake Island to tell everyone the news that some "Fishmen" are leaving Totto Land... only for everyone to assume he's talking about Jimbei and not the Sun Pirates, since they all witnessed Jimbei's official departure from Big Mom's alliance with him.
  • Cat Folk: He is a lion Mink.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Pekoms' fight with Caribou could barely even be called that, as Caribou failed to even scratch him and was absolutely pulverized in one Haki-imbued punch.
  • Defiant to the End: In ch. 834, even after being tied down and about to be shot down to a sea infested with deadly fishes, he shouts to Bege that this insubordination (shooting down Big Mom's crew) shall not go unpunished. Bege then shoots him.
  • Delinquents: Was implied by Wanda to have been one in his younger days.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
  • Expy: His being a lion turtle is likely a reference to the mythological creature of the same name, as well as the tarasque, a mythical French creature.
  • He Knows Too Much: After he rejects Bege's offer to be an accomplice in assassinating Big Mom, Bege shoots him into shark-infested waters to prevent him from telling anyone. It doesn't work thanks to the Sun Pirates rescuing him.
  • Instant Armor: His turtle shell is about as hard as diamond and can easily stop even bullets.
  • I Owe You My Life: According to the SBS, the reason he swore loyalty to Big Mom is because she saved him and the other minks when they were near death.
  • Ki Attacks: He can at least use Armament Haki.
  • Legally Dead: After being shot and abandoned by Bege, he has been written off as dead by his crew. They don't have any qualms about it. Although Tamago is an exception; when he found out that Pekoms might be alive he asked the soldiers to search for him, and if he was indeed alive he was going to beg Big Mom to take him back.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Pekoms is fast enough to nonchalantly dodge Caribou's scythe, strong enough to demolish him in a single punch and shatter said scythe, and durable enough with his Devil Fruit to tank gunfire without a scratch on him.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: While recuperating from being shot off a cliff by Bege, the Sun Pirates keep him in the dark about their plans to flee Big Mom's organization and that Jimbei is planning on forming an alliance with Bege rather than ratting him out.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: As a lion mink who ate a turtle Zoan fruit, he's basically a lion turtle.
  • Mysterious Past: Apart from his apparent years as a delinquent, he was once a friend of Pedro, whom Oven noted was like an older brother to [Pekoms], and a member of the Nox Pirates, who were on a quest to find Poneglyphs... until they ran afoul Big Mom. For some reason, Pekoms abandoned his crew and joined Big Mom's while Pedro, his captain, lost fifty years of his life and their comrade Zepo was killed.
  • Nonchalant Dodge: Pekoms casually dodges a scythe attack from Caribou. It only takes two panels and Pekoms only makes the minimum effort necessary for Caribou to miss.
  • Not Quite Dead: After being shot off the cliff by Capone and into shark-infested waters. He's rescued by the fortunate timing of the Sun Pirates off-screen and next time we see him, he was being healed by them.
  • Ornamental Weapon: Has a sword that he never uses.
  • Panthera Awesome: A very strong humanoid lion.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Wears one in chapter 896. Its so obvious that even Luffy isn't fooled by it.
  • Petting Zoo People Pekoms is a lion mink.
  • Punny Name: Pekoms may come from "Peko Peko", a Japanese expression for hunger.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He's an anthropomorphic lion with a past of delinquency. He also walks around in a fabulous pink suit and tries to intimidate people with cutesy eyes.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Is the more emotional and easily provoked Red Oni compared to his reasonable Blue Oni partner Tamago.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Just like his partner Tamago, he wears a pink suit.
  • Token Good Teammate: Is this for the Big Mom Pirates, at least to a degree. While he still carries out Big Mom's orders, he's willing to help the Straw Hats (especially after they saved his homeland) and has some sense of empathy compared to the rest of Big Mom's crew/family.
  • Turtle Power: Pekoms has a Turtle Zoan, making him a Lion-Turtle man. He can duck his head and limbs inside his shell to protect himself from harm.
  • Uncertain Doom: He was last seen being dogpiled by the Big Mom Pirates who intended to gouge out his eyes so he couldn't see the moon. It is currently unknown if he managed to escape or if he's even still alive.
  • Undying Loyalty: To his friends and family on Zou. It's strong enough to make him circumvent or discreetly defy Big Mom's orders.
  • Verbal Tic: Likes to add "gao" to his speeches.

Devil Fruit: Cook-Cook Fruit

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/streusen_anime.png
"All right Linlin, why don't we create one then, a country of dreams!!"

Head chef of Totto Land and the co-founder and oldest member of the Big Mom Pirates alongside Big Mom herself. As befitting of his position, he has eaten the Cook-Cook Fruit (Kuku Kuku no Mi) which allows him to turn any non-living object into food.


  • Almighty Janitor: He's the Head Chef for Sanji and Pudding's wedding ceremony, but he's later revealed out to be the co-founder of the Big Mom Pirates, having met a six-year-old Charlotte Linlin, a well-intentioned Creepy Child, and essentially the reason why she became such a monster. He himself doesn't seem to be a combatant, but as the man in charge of making sure Big Mom's gluttony is satiated (not to mention the "hunger rages"), it wouldn't be surprising if his seemingly lowly position turns out to be very influential within the crew.
  • The Corrupter: In an eerie callback to how Doflamingo's executives raised him, Streusen did not raise Big Mom with proper discipline and love like a good parent should, instead enabling her worst traits and filling her head with grandiose, utopian dreams until she grew into an utter monster.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: For the villains. He is badly injured in the collapse of Whole Cake Chateau, meaning that the baking of the replacement cake has to be placed in Pudding and Chiffon's hands.
  • Evil Chef: Is one by virtue of being Big Mom's head cook and being a co-founder of the Big Mom Pirates, and the sole reason why the once sweet-hearted Linlin turned into the monstrous Big Mom.
  • Evil Old Folks: Was already an adult when Big Mom was five years old and is the one responsible for turning her into the monster she is now.
  • First-Name Basis: He's the only one who has the privilege of calling Big Mom by her childhood name, Linlin, without suffering severe repercussions because he was her Parental Substitute and was the one who inspired her to create the Big Mom Pirates.
  • Parental Substitute: Took in a young Big Mom under his wing after her previous family of orphans disappeared and, like Doflamingo's Executives did in raising him, enabled her worst traits and filled her head with grand ideas.
  • Rags to Riches: From a down-on-his-luck former chef of a failed pirate crew to the co-founder of the Big Mom Pirates and Big Mom's esteemed head chef, as well as the closest thing she has to a friend and parental surrogate.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He had no more than 3 panels of screentime and was essentially a non-presence in the story up until Big Mom's past was further explored, revealing his real contribution to the formation of the Big Mom Pirates as well as being The Corrupter to Linlin.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Named after "streusel", which is a crumbly topping made of flour, butter, and sugar used as a topping for cakes. He is the Big Mom Pirates' head cook and the eater of the Cook-Cook Devil Fruit.
  • Supreme Chef: Zigzagged:
    • On one hand, he isn't made Big Mom's head cook for nothing! The wedding cake he made for Sanji and Pudding's wedding which was death-themed, since the entire thing was a plan to kill the Vinsmokes was so delicious-looking that Big Mom started salivating. When it was destroyed by the Straw Hat-Firetank Pirate Alliance, she went apeshit.
    • On the other hand, the food he directly creates with his power (as opposed to actually making it) tastes like crap, as Big Mom stated. Only the food he actually bothers to cook himself tastes good.
  • The Sociopath: In his youth, 53 years ago, he laughed his ass off after seeing what happened to Carmel and the orphans which was implied to be Linlin eating them all. After meeting Linlin, he was more fascinated by her than anything else, joined for even more fun, and the first thing he did for her was lying to her about Carmel and the orphans and manipulating her into forming the Big Mom Pirates. He thawed out considerably in the present. In the present day, when he finished the wedding cake, he's extremely proud and burst into tears. The whole scene is Played for Laughs.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Older guy becomes fascinated with a young child after their display of power, and joins up with them to build a pirate crew and later become the right-hand man? Not to mention playing Parental Substitute and enabling their worst traits? Doflamingo's executives, anyone?
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: To no one's surprise, Big Mom towers over her tiny Head Chef. At age 6, Big Mom was still taller than Streusen.

  • Evil Laugh: His "Shuppoppoppo", which is followed by a steam train sound.
  • Meaningful Name: He's named after the diesel locomotive, a train engine.
  • Super Speed: He can run extremely fast, which was why the Straw Hat-Firetank Alliance forcibly recruited him as their transport.

A rabbit homie encountered by the Straw Hat Pirates in the Seducing Woods.


  • Badass Cape: Wears a dark cape, and is a capable fighter.
  • Blade on a Stick: It uses a double-edged variety.
  • Expy:
    • He's heavily similar to the titular character from The Velveteen Rabbit, in where they were both given a soul to become something else (in Randolph's case, Big Mom used a human soul to make him human-like).
    • His outfit is reminiscent of those worn by the protagonists of The Three Musketeers.
  • Funny Animal: He is an anthropomorphic rabbit, though as Carrot confirmed, he's not a Mink, but a previously normal rabbit that was given sentience by Big Mom.
  • Killer Rabbit: Quite literally in his case; he's a sentient rabbit who won't hesitate to kill groups of people if it'll fulfill a mission.
  • Never My Fault: When he mistakenly (almost) attacks Cracker, the latter gets angry at the former. Randolph blames the crane he's riding... while the crane blames him back.
  • Red Baron: He's has the title of "Crane Rider", presumably because he rides a crane.

Prometheus the Sun
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/charlotte_linlin_anime_6.png
Napoleon the Bicorne (on top of Big Mom's head)

Zeus the Cloud, Prometheus the Sun, and Napoleon the Bicorne are three special Homies that were created from fragments of Big Mom’s own soul. They are much more resilient to harm than the other Homies, and they possess unique and incredibly dangerous abilities compared to their lower brethren as well. In addition, considering Big Mom’s selfish nature, they can be considered her true Co-Dragons.


  • Affably Evil: Zeus may be one of Big Mom's homie servants, but it's pretty cordial all thing considered. It even holds a friendly conversation with the Straw Hats, despite its mission to eliminate them.
  • Attack Animal: For a given value of "animal", their main purpose is to fight alongside Big Mom, defending her from enemies and giving her a ranged attack option. She is never seen without at least one of them by her side.
  • BFS: Napoleon's sword form is just a bit smaller than Big Mom, who is already enormous herself.
  • Big Eater: Zeus, to no one's surprise considering where his soul came from, likes eating thunderclouds. Nami uses this to her advantage by "recruiting" him with the promise of more thunderclouds.
  • Co-Dragons: Given Big Mom's selfishness and the way she treats her most powerful child (Katakuri, whom she called a lowly child and threatened for trying to save her), these three homies are actually her closest Lieutenants in every sense of the word. The way she used them is typical Co-Dragons setup as well: Napoleon is her personal bodyguard and Mission Control as it receives transmission from all of her Tart Ships (basically Border Patrol/Scout Ships); Prometheus and Zeus are her dreaded muscle that possess extreme power and inflict her fury upon her enemies.
  • Combination Attack: Zeus and Prometheus can work together to create massive storms.
  • Delicious Distraction: Nami distracted and "recruited" Zeus by offering her delicious black thunderclouds.
  • The Dreaded: Zeus and Prometheus for the simple fact they are the instrument that Big Mom manifests her fury. When first introduced by Pound, both had suitably demonic appearances and were referred to as forces of nature rather than characters.
  • Equippable Ally: Big Mom is capable of using them as attacks, such as throwing Prometheus and wielding Napoleon in its sword form.
  • Expressive Accessory: Napoleon often mirrors Big Mom's expressions, which is justified as his soul is part of hers.
  • Familiar: Zeus becomes one to Nami after the Whole Cake Island arc with her stealing him and making him her slave through a combination of Big Mom's vivre card Nami has, the tasty clouds her weapon produces, and being rather scary and intimidating when she wants to be.
  • Fastball Special: Big Mom’s Heavenly Fire and Thunderbolt attack is basically her throwing Prometheus and Zeus at her opponents.
  • Flying on a Cloud: Zeus is capable of carrying Big Mom and flying her anywhere, much like the Flying Nimbus.
  • Game Face: They look as cutesy as most of the Homies, until they get called to action by Big Mom. Prometheus turns from a cute little Sun into a blazing fireball, and Zeus turns from a fluffy white cloud to a menacing black thundercloud. Not to be outdone, Napoleon's face when he integrates himself into his sword form resembles a Bullet Bill.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Zeus remained inside Nami's Clima-Tact after the Straw Hats escaped, and became her servant; technically making him a de-facto Straw Hat member.
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: Napoleon is a bicorne hat that can turn into a cutlass. It's easily the most pirate-y weapon to ever exist.
  • Logical Weakness: Prometheus, a fire-elemental, has a huge Weaksauce Weakness to water. Zeus, a lightning-elemental, has trouble holding in his lightning if electricity discharges near him, and is instinctively attracted to other sources of lightning. Nami even literally manipulates Zeus into striking Big Mom with a massive thunderbolt twice.
  • Nightmare Face: Pound's descriptions when recalling Prometheus and Zeus gives them a more devilish appearance.
  • No-Sell: Since Prometheus and Zeus are true elementals, not humans with Logia powers, Haki attacks cannot harm them any more than a normal punch can. Trying to exorcise their soul fragments like other Homies, as Brook found out, is also ineffective due to them being made up of Big Mom's own soul.
  • Power of the Sun: Prometheus, as a living sun, of course.
  • Predecessor Villain: Prometheus has one in the form of Pandora, Mother Carmel’s Sun Homie.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Zeus is much more laid-back than Prometheus, often sporting lazy eyes and showing off its Game Face less often. Prometheus, on the other hand, is far more expressive and hot-headed.
  • Super Mode: Napoleon’s Sword form can be considered this, especially in the hand of Big Mom.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: Prometheus and Zeus, respectively. It is especially apparent in chapter 876:
    Prometheus: (scowling) Hey, Zeus, What's the big idea striking Mama like that?
    Zeus: I'm sorry, I couldn't control myself. (dreamily) But those thundercloud eggs are seriously yummy.
    Prometheus: Huh?!?!!
  • Those Two Guys: Prometheus and Zeus are hardly seen without each other.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Big Mom, due to being made from her soul, though Nami was able to make Zeus question its loyalty by offering it delicious black clouds to be her servant.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Played for Laughs and with a shade of Logical Weakness as well. Zeus likes the taste of thunderclouds and will be easily distracted and lured away from Big Mom if there are any nearby. Nami just promising to make more is apparently enough to get it to turn on Big Mom for a little while.
  • Weather Manipulation: Individually, Prometheus can manipulate sun and heat while Zeus can generate lightning and rain. Together they can create massive storms.
  • Visual Pun:
    • Prometheus is a sun that always looks irritated/angry in some fashion, and gets exasperated with Zeus's antics. He's a hothead.
    • Zeus constantly has a dreamy look on his face, and is easily distracted (especially by food). He has his head in the clouds (with his "head" being an actual cloud!).
    • Napoleon is named after Napoleon Bonaparte, who was a dictator notorious for wearing a bicorne hat. Napoleon is a bicorne hat (and a sword) and has a dictating attitude (leads/mediates the trio).
  • Your Size May Vary: Both Zeus and Prometheus can grow to massive size, as Prometheus can grow to be bigger than the Seducing Forest and Zeus can use its powers to make rain fall all over Whole Cake Island. Also, if Zeus uses up a lot of power, it'll shrink to the point that it can be held in a hand.

"Chiffon, I am glad I could see you again one last time, to be able to see you happy just once in my life. I have been worried about you all this time. Had you suffered any hardship? Do you ever felt lonely? I'm sorry for not being there for you during such painful times Chiffon!! It's a bit late, but I wanted to tell you. Congratulations on your marriage."

A mysterious man stuck in the grounds in Seducing Woods in the Whole Cake Island. He reveals himself to be one of Big Mom's husbands whom she shunned away, and fathered two of her children. He also explains the workings of the island, Big Mom's powers, and how the two are related. Later gets unearthed by Charlotte Cracker, who intends to have him executed because he gave crucial intel.


  • Big Damn Heroes: When Nami is about to get taken into Brûlée's mirror world, he smacks Brûlée away, saving Nami. Later tries this again to stop Oven from boiling the ocean, smacking him with a large wooden chunk of debris. It works, but he dies in the process.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: At first, he seemed to be just a completely random large man who buried himself in the Seducing Woods for no real reason, acting like a natural part of the forest's weird scenario, to the point Luffy and the others just plainly ignored him. Later, he becomes unable to keep his bystander status due to being pressured by Luffy and Nami and eventually becomes plot-relevant. Subverted after that as he loses screen time. Double Subverted when he pulls a Heroic Sacrifice that allows Sanji, Chiffon, and Pudding to escape Oven.
  • Disappeared Dad: Enforced by Linlin who threw him as trash after he gave her children, in spite of his pleas to hold his daughters at least once. Later plays this trope for real after Oven kills him for interfering in his pursuit of the Straw Hats; Chiffon's inability to recognize him as her biological father makes his death all the more tragic.
  • Doting Parent: All the man wants is to see his daughters again. He really loves both of them and his eagerness to see them again makes his love clear.
  • Drink Order: Apple juice from the river next to his hole.
  • Face Death with Dignity: His final act before Oven killed him was to straighten his tie and congratulate Chiffon on her marriage.
  • Gonk: This man has a very big head and very small legs. His daughters Chiffon and Lola seemed to have inherited his Gonkiness as well.
  • Good Parents: Pound is very loving to his identical twin daughters Chiffon and Lola, and much of his appearances were spent asking how they are and looking for them because he hasn't seen them both for 26 years since their births. In Chapter 884, when he goes to Cacao Island to see Chiffon, he gets in a scuffle with the guards who were ordered by Pudding to keep everyone including family out of the bakery while the wedding cake is being created, which leads to Pound meeting Oven as the latter prepares to throw his "former" stepdad out. His subsequent attempts to protect Chiffon from her own brother, Oven, eventually lead to him getting killed off-screen by Oven himself for interfering with the Straw Hats/Firetank Pirates' escape from Cacao Island.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Pulls a fatal You Shall Not Pass! on Oven, knowing full well how outclassed he is, in order to protect his daughter and grandson.
  • Losing a Shoe in the Struggle: When we meet him and he is first uprooted from the ground by Cracker, Pound is missing his left shoe. After getting into a fight with Oven, he loses the other shoe.
  • Mr. Exposition: He gives a few exposition about Big Mom's Soul Soul Fruit powers.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: At first he acts nonsensical like repeatedly asking our protagonists for some juice. But then he's forced to explain things for our heroes, and he's not as stupid as he seems.
  • Papa Wolf: Despite almost having been killed by Oven before, Pound immediately charges at him when Oven threatens to kill Chiffon. For that, Oven kills him for real.
  • Riches to Rags: Before Linlin threw him to the curb, in the flashback he's depicted as wearing a crown, indicating he must be a royalty of sort at one point. Plus it wouldn't make sense for a female pirate of Linlin's caliber to just marry someone from a commoner background.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: His only goal was finding his daughters again after being thrown out by their mother... And when Chiffon lays eyes upon him, she doesn't even know who he is. Even worse is the fact he dies soon after that, without even speaking to her. But he got to see she's alright and happy, and her infant son, Pez, recognizes him so it's okay. Somewhat.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: His twin daughters Charlotte Chiffon and the pirate Lola look a lot like him. Heck, he even has the same habit of wearing a girly ribbon in his hair- and he's a guy!
  • Trademark Favorite Food: He really wanted apple juice from the river by Charlotte Brûlée's house.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has light pink hair which was passed down to his daughters, Chiffon and Lola.
  • You're Not My Father: When he pleads with Charlotte Cracker to spare him on the grounds that he's his stepfather, Cracker refuses since he's not "true" family and tries to execute him. Fortunately, Luffy was there to stop him.
    • He's subjected to it again, by Charlotte Oven this time, when he's trying to get into the Kitchen to see Chiffon. And like Cracker, Oven intends to kill him. Later graduating to actually killing him.
