Donquixote Pirates/Donquixote Family
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/donquixote_pirates_jolly_roger.png

Although Donquixote Doflamingo may be one of the Seven Warlords, he's not above hiring pirates and gathering old associates to work under his new "Smiley" brand banner. Most people who are working for Doflamingo usually have a tattoo of his jolly roger somewhere on their person, or on the property that belongs to Doflamingo. Have been appearing in the background throughout the manga, but a 'crew' of sorts only surfaced during the Punk Hazard arc.

More details are given during the Dressrosa arc: the crew has 10 officers which leads around 2000 members each, and 3 elite officers with card suit theme (except for the empty Heart seat), as well as 2 abroad officers. They are:

  • Trebòl Army (Clover/Club, special powers team): Sugar, Violet, Giolla
  • Diamante Army (Diamond, fighting gang): Señor Pink, Dellinger, Lao G, Machvise
  • Advertisement:
  • Pica Army (Spade, commando unit): Gladius, Buffalo, Baby 5
  • Covert Units: Vergo, Monet

The crew is a powerful 2,000 strong army of rank-and-files pirates based in the island of Dressrosa, their base and to their eyes, Doflamingo's rightful territory. They are Doflamingo's muscles and staff his various operations across the world, from slavery to weapons trafficking, notably exploiting the horde of toys at their disposition as free slaves as well as Dressrosa's Dwarves to cultivate the artificial Devil Fruits they sell to Kaido.

Nonetheless, their takeover of Dressrosa, enmity with the Straw Hats and Law, and the angry army of criminals and warriors transformed into toy has led to the formation of an exceptional alliance which managed to take down the Donquixote Pirates.

    In General 
  • Badass Crew: They're the crew of one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. That alone would qualify, but they've all got their own badass credentials by taking on other badasses, like Lao G defeating Don Chinjao, who was a contemporary of Garp in his youth. Even Sugar, that has the body of a ten year old girl, managed to defeat a squadron of dwarves that had already shown to be too fast for normal people to see them.
  • Bash Brothers: The Fighting Gang are noted to never have lost a fight they've all participated in.
  • Cool Ship: In a flashback, they have a pirate ship with a flamingo head as its mast.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: It seems that most of the lower officers have these; Baby-5 suffered Parental Abandonment, Señor Pink's wife and child died, and according to an SBS, Monet and Sugar came from 'a terrible environment'. Trafalgar Law, once considered a candidate to be Doflamingo's right-hand man, came from a town that was dying from lead poisoning, and the Government and other countries just decided to Kill 'Em All instead of trying to find a cure. Doflamingo seems to like people with this trope, as a flashback implies that when Bellamy initially tried to join this crew, he was rebuffed for coming from a decent town.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: In a flashback, not long after the 10-years old Doflamingo met the 4 top executives, the latter gave this treatment to everyone - and everything - who harmed Doflamingo in any way. Doffy said that some punks harassed him, Trebol brutally shot them dead. Doffy got himself tripped on a pavement in a small city, the four set the city on fire.
  • Easily Forgiven: Even if one of the officers fail their mission given by Doflamingo, while the other crew mates will scold them for failing or some would accept death to pay for their failure, Doflamingo will easily forgive them and move on despite causing a very huge setback for him. That only applies to his executives, though - Doflamingo cares nil for anyone below them.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • Despite being a pirate crew, some of their members cheating a blind man is commented by observers to be shaming Donquixote's name. Said members indicate that if Buffalo was around he'd put a stop to them pretty quickly.
    • Brutal as they are, all of them express a thorough disgust at how Flevance, Law's homeland, was wiped out.
  • Everyone is a Super: More so than any group so far: only two executives don't have a Devil Fruit power and one of the two still has superhuman ancestry.
  • Evil Mentor: All of the older top executives and Doflamingo himself were this to Trafalgar Law in his youth, since Doflamingo saw his potential and thought he would be a capable right-hand man. The executives put him through harsh training to improve his fighting ability and Doflamingo acted as a tutor overseeing his education.
    • And before that, the four top executives, especially Trebol, were this with a mix of Parental Substitute to Doflamingo himself. Doflamingo was a bad seed even before this, but they technically became his lifelong enabler when they prostrated themselves before the young Doflamingo and decided to raise him to be the future Pirate King after he demonstrated the Conqueror's Haki. Which, by the way, includes giving him his Ito-Ito power and the gun that he killed his father with, indulging his sociopathic tendency and literally putting him on a pedestal to lord over others.
  • Island Base: Dressrosa, a Spanish-themed island that the Donquixote Family once ruled, until they abandoned it to become Celestial Dragons. Doflamingo just decided to take back what once belonged to his family.
  • Legitimate Businessmen's Social Club: Almost every place with their mark on it just happens to be this. In some cases, the World Nobles, the ruling power in One Piece, actually buy from these places - one of which is a shop for slaves - which means that they have legal amnesty for anything they do so long as they cater to those nobles.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: Some members do like to dress sharply and classily. Others like to dress flashily, although sometimes it doesn't turn out well or look good on them. And then there's Doflamingo, who is impossible to outdress.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": Their reaction to the consequencesSugar getting knocked out. The toys turning back to humans and the citizens of Dressrosa realizing what the toys were. The people of Dressrosa were pissed.
  • The Mole: Doflamingo has quite a lot of agents inside Goverment positions. Such as Vergo, who's G-5's Vice Admiral. His job is to pull the wool over the Marines' eyes. Monet is another, whose job is to watch Caesar Clown who, thanks to Vergo, can run around and at least operate in secret. She also once worked in the Riku family for gathering intel. Later, Violet, seemingly a random dancer who fell in love with Sanji, is actually a member of Trebol's squad.
  • Only in It for the Money: Surprisingly, Doflamingo's group seems to be the only Objectivist movement in the One Piece world, and even then it's debatable. It is heavily implied (if not outright stated) by Monet that Doflamingo himself aspires to become the Pirate King.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: What they actually do is ruling a country and managing black market instead of, you know, pirating. Granted, the restrictions placed on them by their Warlord status probably makes piracy less lucrative than black marketing. Though they used to do classic pirate job like pillaging a town before Doflamingo became a warlord, as seen in a flashback.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: When money is involved, at least.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: Hoo boy, the top execs are made of this. Of some that we've seen, we have a giant of a man with a suprisingly high pitched voice, a man who can turn everything into flowing like cloth and doesn't like compliments, a man in a Steam Punk suit who fights by making his own hat explode, a propellor-haired giant with a Jolly Roger tattooed on his teeth, a Ninja Maid Living Weapon with self-esteem issues, a man dressed as a baby with an inexplicably large female fan club, another man who wears a pink nightie, a young-ish boy who wears shorts and heels, an old geezer fond of making sentai-esque poses, a man of living slime who invades people's personal space, an ageless child who's fond of sweets, and a rotund middle-aged woman artist. Oh, and a man who tends to forget things (who manages to be quite a threat) and a harpy snow girl. And then there was Corazon, a mute klutz with no concentration who spends his entire first appearance tripping on floor, falling from chair and setting himself on fire just by smoking, in that order.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Warlord amnesty only gets you so far, and it turns out there are many marines and other officials who won't say no to a big pile of Berry. It also helps that Doflamingo has the approval of World Nobles, who definitely have this attitude.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: Doflamingo doesn't just have the approval of World Nobles. He is one (or rather, he was). By virtue of this, not including his personal strength, this crew is arguably one of the most dangerous pirate crews outside of the Four Emperors.
  • Smug Super: The Officers are quite powerful, most with dangerous Devil Fruit powers, and they know it. However, it's their own arrogance that does them in, as most of their defeats stem from not taking their opponents seriously until it's too late.
  • Submarine Pirates: The crew has a submarine, which Giolla uses at one point.
  • Sycophantic Servant: Despite Trebol's claims to the contrary, he and the other executives are this to Doflamingo, as stated by Law.
  • The Syndicate: The big cheese of the underworld, 'Joker', is actually Doflamingo. Very few actually know this, and those that do...
  • True Companions: By Doflamingo's own admission, the executives are what he considers his true family, after his mother died and he killed his father, and his brother. They all seem to share this with each other too, and mocking any of them in any way will push all of their Berserk Buttons at once.
  • Undying Loyalty:
    • Despite what he does to Bellamy (who is more than likely a Mook to him than anything else), the crew members who reside at Dressrosa are extremely loyal to him, and address him as "Young Master". These members seem to be those higher up, perhaps those whose values are closest to Vergo's, who, in Law's words, is Doflamingo's most valued subordinate. While the threat below may be part of it, many of these upper members (such as Monet), seem to be ready to die for him at any point willingly, and legitimately care for him. How Doflamingo managed to cultivate such loyalty despite his amoral personality is a question in itself, but it's shown that unlike the Mooks under him, such as Bellamy, he seems to actually care about these members. However, your loyalty has better be undying. Innocent mistakes or failures, Doflamingo will accept from his officers. Outright betrayal and actively working against his plans will get you the death sentence.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Thanks to Doflamingo's Engineered Heroics, the crew is loved and admired by the people of Dressrosa. Once Sugar is knocked out and the victims of the Hobby Hobby spell are able to reveal the truth, this goes straight out the window.
  • You Have Failed Me: Doflamingo's other infamous punishment for incompetent underlings... or underlings who have slightly inconvienced him. Notably, this only applies to the lesser members of the crew; Doflamingo is considerably more forgiving towards his officers.

    "Heavenly Demon" Donquixote Doflamingo 
See his entry in his page.

Elite Officers

    In General 
The top members of the Donquixote Pirates who are powerful and trusted of Doflamingo's higher-ups.
  • Co-Dragons: They're Doflamingo's strongest and closest subordinates, as they founded the Donquixote pirates with him when he was still a kid.
  • Large and in Charge: Except Vergo, who doesn't control any army, they are all inhumanly tall, all three of them dwarfing even the 10-foot-tall Doflamingo, and are the ones with highest authority behind Doflamingo himself.
  • Playing Card Motifs: Of the three subdivisions, the Trebol Army has clubs, the Diamante Army has diamonds, and the Pica Army has spades. Rocinante used to be hearts (codenamed Corazon) and now Vergo has this title. Former crew member Trafalgar Law is captain of the Heart Pirates, and Doflamingo wants him as new Corazon. This theme also fits with the Beast Pirates', whom they're allied with.
  • Symbol Motif Clothing: The spade, diamond and clover symbols are featured prominently on their designs. The only exception is Vergo, who joined the marines in undercover.
  • Theme Naming: Diamante (diamond), Pica (spade) and Trebol (clover) are named after the card suits. The only exception is Vergo, who has the title of "Corazon" (heart), which was previously owned by Donquixote Rocinante.

Trebol

Age: 49

Birthday: March 18th

Debut: Chapter 700 (Manga), Episode 629 (Anime)

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

Devil Fruit: Sticky-Sticky Fruit

Leader of the Trebol Army, the special powers division. He has eaten the Sticky-Sticky Fruit (Beta Beta No Mi), which allows him to secrete mucus. That explodes.

He was the one tasked with guarding the crew's special officer Sugar.


  • Badass Longcoat: Trebol's overcoat isn't as badass (as it is looking so sticky), but it still manages to make him look ominous. Under it, he's an emaciated old guy.
  • Beard of Evil: It's large and looks goopy too.
  • Blob Monster: Trebol's devil fruit appears to be a Logia-class. It's actually just a very powerful Paramecia that looks like a Logia at face value.
  • Catch-Phrase: "My nose is running!" It's always running, but especially large drops of mucus hang out when he finds something amusing.
  • Chained by Fashion: He wears shackles on his legs.
  • Chain Pain: Trebol's Beta Beta Chain technique has him forming his sticky substance to a chain, then attaching it to something big and then using it as an Epic Flail.
  • The Corrupter: Somewhat; Doffy's already pretty cruel, but Trebol is personally responsible for backing it up with his signature gun and the Ito Ito no Mi, leading Doflamingo to the Moral Event Horizon of killing the mob that tortured his family, and then killing his own father. Later on, the other top executives only serves to further enable Doffy's sense of entitlement and ruthlessness.
  • Covered in Gunge: Trebol's coat is seemingly made of sticky stuff. It's as icky as it sounds.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Implied. Oda's art of him as a child has him looking dirty and impoverished-looking, carrying a fish bone with him and a hand over his stomach, as if he hadn't had food in a long time.
  • Dark Chick: He's easily the weirdest of the executives, both in appearance and personality. His "Club" is a motley bunch with a selection of unusual powers, and is all female apart from him.
  • Dual Boss: He assisted Doflamingo during his confrontation with Luffy and Law.
  • Fat Bastard: Subverted; he looks like he could be this due to his thick coat and baggy clothes, but most of it is just slime - underneath, he is severely emaciated. The "Bastard" part is played straight, though.
  • Glasses Pull: Trebol removes his glasses when he waxes over how Doflamingo and the 4 top executives are very close like a family. He puts it back on when he gets serious.
  • Gonk: He's ugly, has a hunchback and is constantly covered in goo. He was like this even back when he was 18 years old.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Trebol is able to successfully snipe a fly between its eyes with his ability.
  • Ironic Echo: He makes fun of the Tontatta for screaming "Pigyaa!" as he stomps on them. When Law cuts him up with his disembodied arm, Trebol screams "Pigyaa", with the Tontatta far away feeling an odd sense of relief.
  • Lean and Mean: He's a severely emaciated old man under his coat of slime.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's normally lumbering, but he has displayed extreme speed courtesy of In a Single Bound. When Robin tried to distract him away in the underworld port, he noticed something's amiss and jumped immediately to the supposed point of problem. Finding out that nothing's wrong, he immediately jumped back to the now-running away Robin, and pinned her down.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: His mucus coating provides a lot of defense, but he's also survived being sliced by someone other than Law. Which only added to the confusion whether his fruit's Paramecia or Logia (It's confirmed Paramecia, but still).
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Trebol's Running Gag; he does this to seemingly everyone, including Doflamingo. This ties to his Devil Fruit, which makes him sticky.
  • Playing Card Motifs: He is the top executive who is holding the clubs seat of the Doflamingo family. Trebol is the Spanish word for club.
  • Signature Laugh: "Behehehe".
  • Sinister Shades: Which hide even more sinister eyes.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": An alternative translation can be Trevor.
  • Squishy Wizard: Quite literally, he manages to trap Luffy in his mucus and Luffy's attacks seemingly don't hurt him much to Luffy's confusion since he has the power to hurt Logia Devil Fruit users by this point in the story. Turns out it's because his power is a Paramecia making him appear wider then he actually is. His real form is a skinny old man who can shift his body around the mucus to avoid attacks. However, when Trebol got too close to Law when he had him incapacitated. Law manages to hit him point blank with his severed arm holding his sword, disrupting Trebol's focus, dispersing the mucus over him and showing his true form.
  • Staff of Authority: He carries a scepter around. It also doubles as a lighter that can be used to detonate his goo.
  • Sticky Situation: With the Sticky-Sticky Fruit (Beta Beta no Mi), he is able to produce very sticky mucus that allows him to stick himself on walls as well as immobilize people with it.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Trebol's sticky substance is also flammable, likely a reference to nitrocellulose in Real Life, a sticky substance that is also used as an explosive.
  • Taking You with Me: Trebol attempts this on Law after he uses his ROOM move to slash Trebol with his severed arm and Trebol responds in kind by blowing up the flammable mucus. He only succeeds in knocking himself out as Luffy managed to get Law out of the explosions radius.
  • Undying Loyalty: Believing Doflamingo will eventually be the one ruling over the seas, his devotion for him is such that he would kill any- and everyone who would so much as offend Doflamingo in even the slightest manner, going as far as burning down an entire town for having poor pavement that made Doflamingo trip. Law eventually lampshades it in his deconstruction of Doflamingo's concept of "family", stating that no matter how much he and the other Executives sees themselves as "equals" to their boss, Doffy will only treat them as such because of their level of usefulness, not because of genuine kindness on his part.
  • Verbal Tic: "Nnee, nnee, nnee".
  • Vertical Kidnapping: With his ability, Trebol can do this to the loser gladiators in the scrapyard in order to bring them to Sugar.
  • Villain Ball: Trebol thinks that with Law missing an arm, down for the count and immobilized by his flammable mucus, it's safe to rise to his provocations and approach him for the kill instead of just standing afar and burning Law to death. He even ignores Doflamingo's immediate warning that he is walking right into Law's Room (and it wasn't too long ago when he was warning Doflamingo about moving right into the sights of Law's Injection Shot). And sure enough, this momentary grasp of Villain Ball allows Law to land a disastrous attack on him.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When Law starts pulling apart Trebol's idea of how his "family" works, it gets under Trebol's skin (and mucus) fast. After Law delivers a strike to him and his slimy body melts away Trebol lights his goo on fire in an effort to destroy Law, regardless of his own safety.
  • Younger Than They Look: When he was 18, he did not look much different from how he looks currently. He only lacked a beard and wore a bowler hat.

Devil Fruit: Ripple-Ripple Fruit

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

Leader of the Diamante Army, the fighting division. He has eaten the Ripple-Ripple Fruit (Hira Hira no Mi), which allows him to flatten objects into cloths in order to change their shapes.

He was tasked with guarding the Flame-Flame Fruit, which was the prize of the Corrida Colosseum tournament.


  • Adaptational Badass: In the Episode of Sabo special, Diamante puts up a much better fight against the titular character and has him on the ropes at points.
  • Arch-Enemy: For Rebecca and Kyros because he has killed Scarlett, Kyros's wife and Rebecca's mom.
  • Arsenal Attire: He wears a cape that's actually a steel plate thanks to his Devil Fruit ability, which allows him to soften solid objects, turning them flexible and weightless, but keeping other natural characteristics like strength and toughness.
  • Badass Cape: Diamante wears a steel screen for a really fancy cape, courtesy of his Devil Fruit power.
  • Bag of Holding: Diamante's Devil Fruit ability allows him to "fold" his weapons into small boxes.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Diamante's Hira Hira no Mi; "Hira" in Hindi also means "diamond" like his name.
  • The Brute: He is the Colosseum's top gladiator and leads a "Fighting Gang" packed with physical powerhouses.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Diamante carries a foldable (thanks to his powers) spiked mace as an extra weapon.
  • Combat Pragmatist:
    • Diamante steps on Rebecca's feet before smashing her with his club, so she can't dodge with her Super Speed.
    • Again during his fight with Kyros, he shoots his only good leg while Kyros was busy deflecting spiked balls.
  • Death from Above: Diamante has an attack called "Death Enjambre" (Death Swarm) where he fires "confetti" to the sky and turn them back into spiked balls that rain onto his enemies.
  • Dismissing a Compliment: Diamante tends to do this whenever anyone (particularly Doflamingo) says something flattering about him, but he quickly accepts it when the compliment stops.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Diamante has no love for Rebecca and would likely love to see her fall but when some gladiators are claiming her win over them was unfair and they want a rematch, Diamante attacks them and tells them to shut up because, regardless of how it happened, she won her round within the rules.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Considering his coworkers' powers, his power to compress anything into a clothlike form seems to be the weakest. Then he reveals his massive storage of weapons in his person, with enough firepower to take out a large army. He can even make the very ground flutter.
  • Jerkass: This guy is a massive dick. Not only does he love commiting atrocities, he loves to brag about them right in front of his victims' relatives' faces. And boy does that come back to bite him in the ass.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Diamante keeps going on and on gloating how he killed Scarlett to both Rebecca and Kyros. When the two finally meet up again ten years for a proper showdown, Kyros shows exactly how a one on one battle with him would go down. When Kyros finally defeats him, he falls and hits his head on a pole that marks Scarlett's grave which knocks him unconscious.
  • Lean and Mean: And he can make himself even leaner with his Devil Fruit too.
  • Morph Weapon: Diamante ate the Ripple-Ripple Fruit, allowing him to turn any solid object into cloth-like matter, including, of course, his sword.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Diamante is seen wielding both a sword and a mace during the Colosseum finals.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Diamante is a caricature of Steven Tyler, the anime made it even more blatant.
  • Paper People: Diamante can use his ability to flatten his own body. Useful for dodging.
  • Playing Card Motifs: He is the top executive who is holding the diamond seat of the Doflamingo family. His name means "diamond" in Spanish.
  • Relative Button: Diamante will never make Rebecca forget that he's the one who killed her mother. So much that Rebecca is reduced to tears. When he realizes Kyros was the one-legged toy soldier he plays it again.
  • Say My Name: Diamante shouts Kyros' name whenever he does something unexpected.
  • Shaping Your Attacks: Diamante's Corrida Glaive attack shapes the sword into a bull's head and then he strikes the enemy with it.
  • Signature Laugh: "Uhahahaha".
  • Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: When Diamante angered Rebecca by shooting Kyros' leg (and letting him get hurt by falling spiky balls), Diamante says this at her, claiming that he shall take down her too.
  • Sword Beam: Diamante has a technique called Halfmoon Glaive that is a wave version of this, akin to Ichigo's Getsuga Tensho.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Doflamingo, his superior and captain whom he and the other Executives believed will conquer the seas and become Pirate King someday. Law eventually lampshades it in his deconstruction of Doflamingo's concept of "family", stating that no matter how much he and the other Executives sees themselves as "equals" to their boss, Doffy will only treat them as such because of their level of usefulness, not because of genuine kindness on his part.
  • Walking Armory: Packs multiple weapons in compact form, most notably multiple confetti cannons with heavy spiked balls as the 'confetti'.
  • Whip Sword: Diamante can turn any sword into this with his Devil Fruit technique called "Viper Glaive".
  • Why Won't You Die?: Diamante almost comes into this during his fight with Kyros, noting that he still stands and goes after him no matter what Diamante throws at him.
  • Would Hit a Girl: He quickly knocks down Rebecca within the finals of the Colosseum and was the one who killed her mother.

Devil Fruit: Stone-Stone Fruit

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

Leader of the Pica Army, the commando division, he has eaten the Stone-Stone Fruit (Ishi Ishi no Mi), which allows him to assimilate himself with stone and control it so long as it remains in contact with him.


  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: The logical conclusion when he assimilates with Dressrosa Island with his rock-assimilation ability.
  • Berserk Button: Although it's easy to laugh at Pica's unfittingly high-pitched voice (and equally unfittingly high pitched laugh), it's best for you not to do it, if you value your life. Fortunately, Pica probably won't kill you; unfortunately, someone else from the Doflamingo Family probably will, just to appease Pica. This has less to do with Pica being an especially forgiving person and more to do with the fact that Pica tends to level whole towns when he gets upset.
  • Big Little Brother: An unorthodox example, since it relates to the Donquixote "Family." He is actually the youngest of the Top Executives, and is younger than Doflamingo as well, but he is the largest of the five. Even in the past, he was pretty bulky when he was nine years old.
  • Breaking Speech: Pica taunts King Riku about how he's not fitting to be a king and that he, like all "good people" in history, shall perish. He pretty much tempted fate; Zoro, aided by Orlumbus, flies at him from behind and slices his statue form in half. After slicing up the rest of it and cornering the executive, Pica is instantly taken out when he is forced to fight in his normal haki-empowered form and loses to Zoro's stronger haki who proceeds to tell him to not underestimate the "good people".
  • Buried Alive: Pica's punishment for those who laugh at his voice.
  • Chained by Fashion: Ten years ago, at least.
  • Colossus Climb: When Pica makes himself into a giant the size of Oars, Luffy takes the novel approach of just using the guy as a giant ramp to his destination.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Pica, instead of fighting Zoro head-on, uses his powers for hit-and-run tactics. Then, after leading Zoro a fair distance away, attacks all the weakened fighters to prevent them from grouping together, and then attempts to kill King Riku to make sure Doflamingo can't be removed from power.
  • Cool Helmet: He wears a spiky knight's helmet.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: His Stone-Stone Fruit allows him to assimilate himself with stone, which he can then manipulate.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Pica tends to bury people alive for laughing at his comically high voice.
  • The Dreaded: Pica is one of the most feared top executives among the Donquixote pirates, as he is perhaps the most destructive of them all with his Stone-Stone powers, especially to Violet. Coupled with his sensitivity towards his high pitched voice, and his vicious retaliation to those that laugh at him endangers nearly everyone around him.
  • Evil Genius: Despite his enormous physical power, Pica is a tactical, defensive and ambush-focused fighter, and leads the highly organised "Commando Unit".
  • Genius Bruiser: The bulkiest yet most consistently pragmatic of the executives. He is the only one of the remaining top executives that didn't screw up their objectives, nor did he pick up the villain ball. He tried to slash Luffy with a giant katana when he couldn't simply crush him with his immensely gigantic stone golem. Once he realized Zoro outmatched him during his swordfight, he tried to outsmart him with his guerrilla tactics combined with his Stone-Stone abilities. He later tries to end the war against his boss by killing the former ruler, King Riku.
  • Genius Loci: Since the Donquixote Palace is entirely made out of stone, Pica, at least according to Viola, effectively is the palace thanks to his Devil Fruit powers.
    • He later becomes the whole island, being able to change its topography effortlessly.
  • "Get Back Here!" Boss: Pica, due to his ability to freely move through stone, is extremely hard to land a hit on. Zoro's greatest difficulty in his fight with Pica is not Pica himself, who is clearly his inferior in combat skills, but scoring a good hit on his real body before he wrecks the entire island.
  • Golem: Pica's appearance after assimilating himself with the palace's stone walls.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Pica wields a massive one. To give an idea of how big it is, Pica himself is already three times bigger than the average human, and that sword is about 3 times longer than he is tall.
  • Ki Attacks: Pica can use Armament Haki on his whole body like Vergo. Didn't help much since Zoro has stronger Haki.
  • Logical Weakness: Pica's Stone-Stone powers only seem broken because Dressrosa is built on rock, giving him lots to assimilate with. If he doesn't have any stone, he's powerless. Zoro beats him by cutting his giant stone body to pieces, and since they're in mid-air Pica can't escape into the ground like he normally does.
  • Moral Myopia: He will go berserk if anyone either laughs or comments his high-pitched voice, and yet he has no hesitation in insulting others, such as King Riku and Diamante, who is one of his oldest comrades and who previously was angered when a soldier laughed at Pica's voice.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Downplayed. Funny voice, laugh, and Berserk Button aside, he easily proves to be the most powerful and intelligent of Doflamingo's remaining Co-Dragons, and Pica wanted to kill the heroes and King Riku immediately.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Pica's powers are immense, such that he can rearrange the very island if he wants.
  • Playing Card Motifs: He is the top executive who is holding the spades seat of the Doflamingo family. Pica is the Spanish word for spade.
  • Pulling Themselves Together: He isn't a Logia, but Pica's stone constructs are effectively invulnerable. No matter the damage, he can just reform them and keep going. In fact, in the New World, this effectively turns out to be an advantage, because even Haki users are helpless to actually injure him unless they manage to isolate his real body in all that stone.
  • The Quiet One: Because of his ridiculously high-pitched voice which he is very sensitive about, Pica rarely speaks.
  • Shoulders of Doom: Pica has huge, spiked shoulders. That's right, they're naturally like that. Oda says that it's a result of wearing spiked shoulder guards since puberty, which apparently simulates the process of making cube-shaped watermelons.
  • Signature Laugh: The rather amusing "Pikkya-Pikkya-Pikkyarara".
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Pica is the name officially used but sometimes is spelled Peeka.
  • Smashing Hallway Traps of Doom: Pica does this to Luffy's group during their ambush in the castle.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Pica has a massive upper body and small lower body.
  • Undying Loyalty: Believing Doflamingo is the rightful king of Dressrosa and the country belongs to the family, he claimed he alone would be enough to defeat the enemies in Dressrosa and prevent them from getting to Doflamingo. Law eventually lampshades it in his deconstruction of Doflamingo's concept of "family", stating that no matter how much he and the other Executives sees themselves as "equals" to their boss, Doffy will only treat them as such because of their level of usefulness, not because of genuine kindness on his part.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Pica's main tactic throughout Dressrosa is this; merge with tons of rock (like the castle, or the mountain), crush his opponents with giant stone fists or whatever, repeat. While he does have a sword, he welds it more like a Telephone Polearm that does nothing against the more skilled Zoro. While he makes up for his lack of hand-to-hand with some cunning tactics (which is mostly "hit and run"), the minute he's forced to take Zoro head-on, his attack is simply a body slam, which does nothing but make him an open target.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Pica doesn't talk often, so people are shocked to realize how high-pitched his voice really is when he does speak. But whatever you do, don't laugh. Pica's also unique among others with this trope in that characters actually comment on how he sounds.
  • Wall Master: Thanks to his Devil Fruit, Pica can hide himself inside walls in order to ambush foes.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: This is the reason why Pica spoke up for the first time in the Dressrosa arc; he found Doflamingo's plan for dealing with the heroes too roundabout and wanted to directly kill off their enemies.
  • Worf Barrage: Pica's stone assimilation and shaping powers should make him a monster to fight... but he ends up fighting Zoro, who can cut stone like butter. When forced to fight him head on, Pica coats his body with Haki... and Zoro beats him in one blow, because Zoro has stronger Haki.
  • Younger Than They Look: When he was a child. You're forgiven if you thought the nine year old Pica was in his mid- to late teens or so.

Devil Fruit: Hobby-Hobby Fruit

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

The Donquixote Pirates' special officer of the Trebol Army, the special powers division. Due to her powers, she was a vital element of Doflamingo's operations and, as such, she was heavily protected. She was the main target of Operation SOP, devised by the Thunder Soldier and the Dwarves. Sugar has eaten the Hobby-Hobby Fruit (Hobi Hobi no Mi), which allows her to turn anyone she touches into a toy; her victims are immediately forgotten by everyone who once knew them, and she can further take control of them once they are toys and use them as soldiers or servants.


  • Actually Four Mooks: She can combine multiple victims into bigger, stronger toys when she has a serious fight on her hands.
  • All There in the Manual: Eiichiro Oda states that she is Monet's younger sister. This information is never brought up in the story at any point.
  • The Ageless: Her Devil Fruit has the side effect of rendering her forever young. Oda confirms that while she's biologically 10-years-old, she's technically 22-years-old.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: Her powers are really only particularly useful if you're a remorseless villain who needs certain people to disappear. Also kind of ironic, since toys are generally associated with fun, happiness, and good memories.
  • Badass Adorable: She looks like an adorable, harmless little girl, who needs a bodyguard around her to keep her safe, but she's actually quite capable even on her own.
  • Baleful Polymorph: She can turn anyone she touches into a toy. Worse still, this also has the effect of erasing the memories of the victim from everyone else, so the toy can't even claim to be the person they were.
  • Big Eater: She is frequently seen eating several grapes in a row.
  • Cool Crown: She wears a golden crown atop her head.
  • Creepy Child: At least in her acts and personality, as she usually looks too cute to be creepy. This is a subversion since she's actually 22, but looks like a child due to eating a Devil Fruit that halted her aging.
  • Creepy Doll: Her Headcrackers. Also count as a sort of Elite Mooks, being composed of at least 8 Mooks and being very tough to beat.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Implied; both her and her sister Monet were rescued by Doflamingo from a terrible environment and for that, they pledged their loyalty to him and his crew.
  • Fragile Speedster: She's very quick, having used her powers on several attacking Tontatta dwarves (who are too fast for normal humans to even see) in a fight. But if she ever is clocked, she's out in one punch. Just ask Usopp.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: She's named "Sugar" and looks as cute as you'd expect from the name... but she's a dangerous person with an unusual, yet frightening ability of making people into dolls. That has the side effect of erasing people's memories about them.
  • Flunky Boss: She can order toys to fight for her.
  • Geas: When she transforms people into toys, she places them under one of these, binding them to follow the orders of any family's members and work to protect the family. And they can't do anything about it.
  • High-Class Glass: She wears a monocle, though it looks more like a glass eyepatch.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Invoked by her when she feeds Usopp the super spicy grape which was supposed to be used on her. His reaction is so extreme that, after her Wild Take, she does the foamy-mouth faint, thus achieving the objective the grape was meant for anyway.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Trébol, her superior and bodyguard. Not that they like each other very much.
  • In the Hood: She wears a red, teddy bear-themed, hooded cloak on her at all times.
  • Killer Teddy Bear: Her "Little Black Bears" move can turn people into this.
  • Little Miss Badass: Though she isn't strong enough to go on her own without Trébol as a bodyguard most of the time, she's still far from weak and can hold her own in a fight, being quick enough to transform a good number of dwarves into toys with no problem.
  • Living Toys: What her victims become after she touches them.
  • Manchild: Sugar is an inversion. She's stuck in a prepubescent body, but she is an adult in terms of mentality. However, when it comes to fear, she's every bit like a child. After the Nightmare Face Usopp made, it absolutely terrifies her to the point of PTSD.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: When Usopp was captured and beaten so soundly by Trebòl and bound by Trebòl's goo, she instead of turning him into a toy, decided to put the super-super spicy grape candy in his mouth, only knowing it was poison. It caused Usopp to have such a horrific Nightmare Face reaction that seeing it scared her into unconsciousness, bringing Doflamingo's entire operation down in a fiery crash as thousands of previous victims were restored along with memories of said victims.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: The toys she can make. They can quickly get up and reassemble themselves after they get struck down.
  • No Ontological Inertia: Thunder Soldier theorized that if she is knocked out, her power over the toys ends and they will revert back to human form. He turns out to be right, although later stories show this is a common trait of Devil Fruit powers.
  • Older Than They Look: According to Oda, thanks to her Hobby-Hobby Devil Fruit, she remains a 10-year-old biologically. Chronologically, she is 22-years-old.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: She is fast enough to perform this and touch several enemies in succession. Considering that she only needs to touch somebody to turn them into a toy, this is extremely dangerous.
  • Squishy Wizard: As she's physically a child, she gets taken down quite easily despite her incredibly overpowered ability.
  • Story-Breaker Power: She certainly won big in the Superpower Lottery. With her Devil Fruit ability, she can turn even the toughest of fighters into a harmless toy servant who can't do anything but obey her commands with a single touch of her hand. Since they are toys, they no longer feel pain and can rebuild themselves. To make things worse, those who are transformed are completely erased from everybody else's memories. And she still gets agelessness as a side-effect. However, the moment she's knocked out, her powers and their effects are completely undone, as Usopp discovered.
  • Tiny Tyrannical Girl: She has enslaved thousands of people with her ability. She also readily badmouths Trébol, who is both her bodyguard and direct superior. The feeling is mutual.
  • Token Mini-Moe: The youngest looking of the Donquixote Pirates. "Looking" being the key word.
  • Touch of Death: A variant; while it's not immediate physical death, you getting touched by her Baleful Polymorph lets her control you absolutely, and make the rest of the world forget your existence. You do not want to let her touch you.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Grapes, which she carries with her in a basket to eat by the dozen. It's later weaponized by the dwarves, who coated a grape with a "poison" in hopes of taking her out, but Sugar got wise and gave it to Usopp... who knocked her out with a horrific Nightmare Face after eating it, scaring her for life and achieving the original purpose. One of the manga covers requested by a fan of Oda depicted her making grape jam with a pack of wolves.
  • Undying Loyalty: Much like the rest of the crew she is extremely loyal to Doflamingo, justified since he saved both her and her sister Monet. She even claims that she would turn the entire kingdom into toys to make up for all the trouble he had to endure because of her.
  • Un-person: Whenever someone is turned into a toy by her, everyone else immediately forgets everything about them.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: After she regains consciousness after Usopp's scary face made her faint, she gains a phobia for long noses or anything resembling them.
  • Wild Take: A positively epic one a la Eneru by her when Usopp suddenly screams spewing fire at her while making a horrific Nightmare Face, because of the super-hot chili she unwittingly fed him.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has aquamarine hair.

Devil Fruit: Art-Art Fruit

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

One of the officers of the Trebol's army of the Donquixote Pirates. She's an old woman with a very large ego and a passion for art. She has eaten the Art-Art Fruit (Ato Ato no Mi), which gives her the ability to make thought bubbles that turn everything they touch into distorted pieces of art everything they touch.

In the Dressrosa Arc she assaults the Thousand Sunny, turning the ship and everyone on board (Nami, Brook, Chopper, and Momonosuke) into abstract art, making them useless in combat. Until Brook tricks her and, with the help of Nami, defeats her, turning everything back to normal.

Later she tries to use Mansherry's Heal-Heal Fruit to heal the other defeated officers. By the end of the arc, she's arrested along with the other Donquixote Pirates.


  • Art Attacker: Her Devil Fruit power allows her to transform people and objects into living works of abstract art. It's an Imagination-Based Superpower by virtue of her producing a literal thought bubble that will then warp anything it touches into an art based on her imaginations.
  • Art Imitates Art: Much of Giolla's artworks are references to real, famous works like Edvard Munch's The Scream and Salvador Dali's The Persistence of Memory.
  • Art Shift: The victims of her Devil Fruit go from Oda's standard cartoon style to several styles of modern art.
  • Berserk Button: Don't refer to Giolla's artwork as "toys". Because there's already a member in Donquixote family (Sugar) with the power to turn people into toys, and she doesn't want to be confused with that someone.
  • Butter Face: When she was younger, she had a much more fit body but her face wasn't much different.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Her technique Dying Art traps the victim into a mural and slowly turns them into part of it, killing them.
  • Dirty Coward: Talks big about how she and everyone under Doflamingo will throw their life to protect him, but when Law gives her a chance to run away she immediately does. Averted in the anime where she stays until Doflamingo tells her to run.
  • Evil Old Folks: She's elderly member of a notorious pirate gang.
  • Fangirl: Claims to be a fan of Soul King and his music.
  • Gonk: As if her almost egg-shaped body isn't enough, her facial features are downright exagerrated.
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: Almost literally considering that to use the Art-Art Fruit she produces thought clouds that transform things.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: She used to have a nice body, though her face was already gonky, now she's an ugly old lady.
  • Mad Artist: She consider herself an artist and her Devil Fruit Power is mainly used for assassination.
  • Multicolored Hair: She has red and yellow hair.
  • Narcissist: She's really vain and, whenever someone talks to her, she thinks they've called her beautiful or compared her to Boa Hancock. She's not happy to hear that she simply misheard.
  • Never Mess with Granny: She's is in her sixties, but her art powers are deceivingly dangerous.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Giolla has this laugh despite looking far from an elegant noblewoman.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Her overall appearance resembles Dame Edna Everage.
  • No Ontological Inertia: When she's defeated, the victims of art-mutations will turn normal.

Devil Fruit: Swim-Swim Fruit

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

He is one of the officers of the Diamante Army, the fighting division, of the Donquixote Pirates. He has eaten the Swim-Swim Fruit (Sui Sui no Mi), which allows him to swim on the ground or on walls.


  • Broken Pedestal: To his wife, Russian, who learned in the worst possible way that her husband wasn't a bank employee like she thought he was after their son, Gimlet, died of a fever.
  • Cerebus Retcon: Why does he dress as a baby? One day, he met a beautiful young woman named Russian, and the two of them fell in love. However, she hated pirates, so he lied to her by telling her he worked in a bank. They eventually married and had a son, Gimlet, and they lived happily... until said son died of a fever when he was still an infant. Because he was away when it happened, this caused Russian to realize her husband was lying to her. Enraged and saddened plus reeling from Gimlet's death, she ran away but got caught in a landslide, putting her in a vegetative state, which she apparently never came out of. He was devastated, and tried his best to make her smile. He succeeded when he started wearing their son's bonnet and pacifier, and thus has kept them ever since, so he could see Russian smiling again.
  • Chick Magnet: Apparently, the reason he's so popular with women is because they find him "hard-boiled". He doesn't like it in the slightest because he's still married and devoted to his vegetative wife.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He sneaks on Franky's back with his powers. Later subverted, however, in that they're agreeing to fight in a more "manly" way; Señor Pink stops doing this.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He has one of these just like the other lower officers. Pink used to be married to Russian, a beautiful woman, even while he worked for Doffy, and they had a son, Gimlet, together. Russian hated pirates, so Pink had to lie to her to cover up his activities by saying he worked for a bank. One day, Gimlet caught ill with fever and died while he was away. The tragedy led to Russian discovering that he was actually a pirate, which sent her soaring past the Despair Event Horizon and she ran away in grief, only to be caught in a landslide during a rainstorm that put her in a permanent vegetative state. Pink, guilty over destroying his own family, discovered the only way he would get some form of reaction from Russian is if he wore Gimlet's old clothes, which upon seeing them made her smile. He's been dressing himself as a baby ever since.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: From his backstory. The only reason he wears baby clothes is because they used to belong to his infant son, who died of illness while he was away. His grief-stricken wife Russian was made vegetative by a landslide accident when she ran out from home during a storm, in an Heroic BSoD after having found out that he was a pirate on top of losing poor Gimlet, and Pink wearing his son's clothes was the only way to get Russian smile and react to him.
  • Evil Virtues: He is, if rough-spoken, very polite to his enemies. He even scolds his fangirls for insulting Franky. He's also a devoted husband for his wife Russian, who in a fit of grief over the death of her son, ran away from home during a storm and got herself in a landslide accident that left her permanently vegetative. To make her recognize and smile at him again, Pink has been dressing up in baby clothes ever since.
  • Formerly Fit: He was a lean, handsome guy around a decade ago. Then he slowly let himself go over the years after he started to dress like a baby to make Russian smile.
  • Freudian Excuse: He always dresses himself up in baby clothes because they belonged to his dead son, Gimlet, and it's the only way he can get the vegetative Russian to smile and recognize him again.
  • Graceful Loser: His fight with Franky. Their fight had a deeper meaning, to show their resolve against each other, so both agreed not to dodge each other's attacks. At the end of it, he unleashed his ultimate attack claiming that if Franky survived this, it's his loss. Franky did, and Pink just stood there, ready to take on Franky's last blow that he knows will knock him out cold.
  • Honor Before Reason: He allowed Franky to defeat him on the condition that he survived his strongest attack.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: As it turns out in chapter 762, all senior officers of Doflamingo used to play this straight. Especially Señor Pink, who was almost unrecognizably hunky before he let himself go after his infant son died from a fever and his wife was made vegetative by a landslide accident.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He tends to get concerned about old ladies and kitties, despite his tough attitude. Then there's the fact that he's still faithful to Russian, despite attracting lots of fangirls, and his attempts to make her smile and recognize him again.
  • A Lady on Each Arm: He is constantly surrounded by many women who are somehow very fond of him. He's rather annoyed by it, telling them that they should find younger men. It's because his heart only belongs to his dear Russian.
  • Kavorka Man: He becomes this in the present.
  • Made of Iron: He tanked a missile from Franky and survived, albeit bloodied.
  • Manchild: Played with. He wears a bonnet, a bib, swim trunks, and sucking a pacifier - but in his words, "I hate children." He also disdains child-like mentality. Then it's revealed that his infant son died of illness while he was away, causing a chain of events that later left his wife Russian in a vegetative state. To make her recognize him and smile again, he dresses up in his son's baby clothes and acts like a child.
  • Manly Tears: He cries at the end of his fight with Franky, reminiscing on the family he has lost. Franky remarks that it's unbecoming to do that (though he's one to talk) and wipes away Pink's tears in his unconscious state.
  • Mr. Exposition: During a flashback, he, Gladius, and Lao G took this role on explaining the White City to the young Baby 5.
  • Nice Hat: His baby bonnet. While it isn't a nice hat by itself, Pink's sheer manliness makes it awesome.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: His son Gimlet died as an infant.
  • Oxymoronic Being: He's a guy characterized by lots of contradictions and ironies. He is a disgustingly fat guy who dresses like a baby and treats women like crap, yet women fawn over him like he's the hottest guy around. Furthermore, he disses said women by stating that they should go after men younger than him, the guy in the baby suit. He acts like he doesn't care for his crewmates, but his actions and words show that he genuinely cares for them, such as him protecting Machvise and him being the practically the first person to express genuine concern for Sugar when it's learned that she's defeated. His Devil Fruit allows him to swim through solid objects at the cost of being unable to swim in water. Lastly and rather infamously, he calls Franky a pervert upon meeting the latter despite his own getup at the time.
  • Pet the Dog: Saves a random kitty from one of Franky's punches.
  • Phrase-Catcher: He sure is a "hard-boiled" fellow...
  • Rated M for Manly: He was described as 'hardcore', despite wearing a baby bonnet and sucking a pacifier. Then we learn of his backstory during his fight with Franky, and he truly deserves that reputation.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He might wear pink baby clothing, but he's still a very tough fighter.
  • Sand Is Water: His Swim-Swim Fruit allows him to literally swim through solid surfaces. Ironic considering the main standard Devil Fruit weakness is being unable to swim in water.
  • Shout-Out Theme Naming: His name is clearly a reference to Mr. Pink, the same character that inspired the creation of Sanji.
  • Sinister Shades: He wears purple aviator sunglasses.
  • Stout Strength: After over-eating in the past due to his tragedy, he gains quite a bit of weight but his strength remains the same.
  • Taking the Bullet: He jumped in front of a missile from Franky to shield the downed Machvise from Franky's attack. He later takes a punch from Franky to protect a passing cat, which makes Franky shed Manly Tears.
  • Token Good Teammate: He's definitely way more sympathetic than the majority of his crew thanks to his random altruistic actions and tragic backstory.
  • Tragic Keepsake: His baby bonnet and pacifier used to belong to his dead infant son, Gimlet, who passed away from a fever, and serve as reminders of his now broken family.
  • Tsundere: He doesn't avoid an easily dodge-able attack because he says he only uses his Sui Sui powers when he feels like it. A Mook states that he was actually Taking the Bullet for Machvise instead.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Doflamingo like the rest of his comrades. His last words before being defeated by Franky was an apology to his captain.
  • Wall Master: Señor Pink is able to hide inside the walls or even underground.
  • What You Are in the Dark: While he's always seen with A Lady on Each Arm, he never has his way with them once and is rather irritated by their attraction to him, telling them to go find younger men instead. This is because he's still married, and he still remains faithful to his wife, Russian, despite her vegetative condition.
  • Worthy Opponent: He and Franky bond during their battle over MANLINESS.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: He delivered 30 suplexes to Franky in a single fight.

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

One of the officers of the Donquixote Pirates (and the oldest one), in Diamante's army, the fighting division. He's a calm and analytical man, but also very senile since he needs glasses to see the dwarves and has troubles hearing. His fighting abilities are still top notch, though. He doesn't have any devil fruit, but can use a special martial art called "Battle Preservation Fist" (Jio-Ken) that makes the user much stronger and to not feel any pain despite their age.

During the Dressrosa Arc, he defends the entrance of the SMILE factory (preventing the dwarves from entering it) until he moves to the King's plateau, where he defeats Don Chinjao. After the events of Dressrosa, he's arrested along with his crewmates.


  • Adaptation Expansion: His battle against Sai lasts a single attack, but in the anime, the two exchange many more hits.
  • Badass Beard: Being a badass old man, it's natural he has a short beard. It doubles as a Beard of Evil.
  • Badass Normal: The lack of a devil fruit power doesn't detract from his strength.
  • Bald of Evil: He has some facial hair but not a single one on his head, and is a member of a pirate crew.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's a bit senile, but is still a fighter of one of the strongest crews.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Lao G's belt has a "G" as the buckle. For that matter, he loves emphasizing the letter "G" whenever possible, either through words or even hand motions.
  • Catch-Phrase: "There's the G", he uses it whenever he says a word that has a "g" in it.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Lao G has no powers, but his skill at martial arts allows him to go toe-to-toe with Don Chinjao, considered a worthy match for Garp in his prime.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Defeats Thunder Soldier and the dwarves without breaking a sweat.
  • Evil Old Folks: He's seventy years old and an evil pirate.
  • Expy: He's like an evil Master Roshi, complete with a technique that makes his body muscular.
  • Feel No Pain: After using Jio-Ken, his body is no longer affected by pain.
  • Formerly Fit: He used to have a muscular body, but age hasn't been kind to him. Downplayed because he claims to have become even Stronger with Age and Subverted once he uses Jio-Ken.
  • Fragile Speedster: He's really strong and so fast enough to hit the dwarves, but his body isn't as tough as it once was. The "fragile" part is dropped once he uses Jio-Ken.
  • Hulking Out: Jio-Ken makes his body much more muscular, even if only the upper part.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Apparently, holding back on his muscle power a lot causes Lao G to become a writhing old man. But when he decides to stop holding back, he becomes much more muscular and powerful (in a technique he calls himself "Battle Preservation Fist").
  • Leotard of Power: Wears a blue leotard with arrows but, being a chubby, wrinkly old man, this comes off as Fan Disservice. 16 years ago, when he was still in top form, however...
  • Lightning Bruiser: With Jio-Ken, not only does he becomes much stronger and faster, but his body is no longer fragile.
  • Mr. Exposition: Explains the history of Trafalgar Law's city of origin to Baby 5 along with Gladius and Senior Pink.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Had he not boasted about Baby-5's mental condition making her an ideal tool for the family, shattering any illusions Baby-5 might have had, and drove Sai's resolve to save her and take her away from such horrible people he might have won against Sai.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: His attacks are so strong that they shatter the ground.
  • Scatterbrained Senior: Downplayed. He's still very analytical, but has a trouble hearing and his sight isn't very good. He also accidentally goes back into the elevator he has just left.
  • Signature Laugh: His laugh is "Fafafafa".
  • Stronger with Age: Lao G claims that the older you get, the more painful you'll feel, but the stronger your skills become.
  • Super Reflexes: He can react really fast. How fast? You know those fairies that supposedly move too fast for people to see? When one of them tries to attack Lao G, Lao G puts on eyeglasses before hitting him out of the air.
  • Winged Soul Flies Off at Death: When Lao G seemingly "dies" in his battle, his soul appears as his head and torso with wings attached, floating away from him. Then subverted when his soul inexplicably flies back at his body.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Guards the entrance of the smile factory and prevents the dwarves and the Thunder Soldier to enter.

On of the officers of the fighting division, Diamante's army, and the youngest among all the officers. He's a young half-human half-fish-man (fighting fish type) with a really effeminate personality, but becomes bloodthirsty if he's involved in a fight.

During the Dressrosa Arc he mocks Bellamy and his devotion to Doflamingo, saying he has never been important. However, thanks to Bartolomeo, he cannot finish him and is later seen defending the entrance of the SMILE factory, along with Machvise, Senior Pink and Lao G. During the battle on the King's Plateau, he fights and defeats Suleyman, Blue Gilly, and Ideo before being defeated by Hakuba.

After the events of Dressrosa, he's captured along with the rest of the crew.


  • Always Someone Better: Boasts how his fish-man heritage made him faster than everyone else. But Hakuba is even faster.
  • Axe-Crazy: Out of battle, Dellinger is an arrogant, showoffy jackass. In battle, he's a sadistic, murderous maniac who seems to truly enjoy making his targets suffer.
  • Badass Normal: Downplayed. He doesn't have any devil fruit ability, but he's half-fish-man, a race which is ten times stronger than the average human and even more so when underwater.
  • Blood Knight: Fighting fishes are bloodthirsty creatures and Dellinger, an half-fish-man fighting fish type, loves fighting as much as they do.
  • Combat Stilettos: Dellinger fights with those, which is notable considering that the character in question is male. The stilettos appears to actually be sharpened.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Easily defeats Suleyman, Blue Gilly and Ideo, but is on the receiving end from Hakuba. Even in the anime, where he takes more than one hit, he's still defeated with no difficulty.
  • Doppleganger Spin: Dellinger can move so fast he's able to create the illusion of multiple copies of himself are surrounding his opponents.
  • Evil Gloating: Before finishing Bellamy for good, he mocks him, saying how meaningless he has always been to Doflamingo. This gives Bartolomeo the time to come and protect Bellamy.
  • First Time Feeling: In the anime, when Dellinger gets cut in the chest by Hakuba, he's shocked to see his own blood on him and he's too scared to fight back resulting in Hakuba to cut him several times.
  • Fragile Speedster: He blitzes through the enemies with ease but Hakuba defeats him in a single slash.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Dellinger is half-Fish-man, of fighting fish type.
  • Horn Attack: Dellinger can use his horns to impale opponents when headbutting them.

  • Improbable Age: He's been an officer of the Donquixote Pirates since he was a baby!
  • Japanese Pronouns: Dellinger uses atashi, a pronoun generally used by women.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Dellinger suffers from this no sooner when he defeats Ideo, claiming how no one can beat the Doflamingo Family, himself included just cause he's a half human fish-man. No sooner then he reaches the third level of the plateau he's quickly taken out by Cavendish in his sleepwalking persona. What makes this even more karmic is that Dellinger's fighting style revolves around blitzing his opponents with his speed, and now he's taken out by the even faster Hakuba.
  • Literal Ass-Kicking: Dellinger attempted to kick a downed Luffy, but Zoro redirects his movement to Machvise's ass instead.
  • Man Bites Man: Dellinger bit Ideo on the shoulder with his sharp teeth, though he's half-human and half-fish-man.

  • Scary Teeth: His mouth is full of fangs he got from his fish-man heritage
  • Signature Laugh: His laugh is a very feminine "Kyahahaha".
  • Sissy Villain: Dellinger has overly feminine mannerisms and also wears high heels. This is because he has been raised like a female by Giolla since he was a baby.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Other than Dellinger, his name could be spelled Derringer.
  • Super Speed: He can move fast enough to create afterimages and blitz through the enemies.
  • Teens Are Monsters: Dellinger is sixteen years old, yet judging from the way he fights, is one of the more brutal executives in the Donquixote Family.
  • Tempting Fate: After managing to defeat Ideo, he heads for the upper plateau to help Gladius who is fighting Cavendish in his berseker persona, Hakuba. Gladius warns Dellinger to stay back but Dellinger, cocky after his recent victory, claims no one can beat them together. Not a second after he says this, Hakuba zips in and slashes him, instantly knocking him out.

Devil Fruit: Ton-Ton Fruit

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

One of the officers of the Donquixote Pirates, a member Diamante's army. He's compassionate towards his crewmates, to the point of being concerned about Baby 5 after Gladius shoots her, but in battle he's a cruel and merciless fighter. He has eaten the Ton-Ton Fruit (Ton Ton no Mi) which allows him to alter his weight, only that he cannot become lighter but only heavier, much heavier, even up to 10.000 tons.

During the Dressrosa Arc, he defends the entrance of the SMILE factory along with the rest of Diamante's army. Later, on King's Plateau, he fights Boo and then Hajrudin.

At the end of the arc, he's arrested by the marines like the rest of the crew.


  • Acrofatic: In spite of his fat body, he's rather athletic and can jump to really great heigths.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Tends to be just called "Vise" by his crewmates.
  • Badass Beard: Sports a rather impressive orange one, and is one of the strongest fighters of the Donquixote Pirates.
  • Belly Flop Crushing: Machvise's Signature Move is to land on the enemy with the shield on his belly.
  • Boring, but Practical: Sure, his attacks aren't the most clever ones, but landing on your enemy with a weight of thousands of tons is definitely effective.
  • Carpet of Virility: Not only he has a Badass Beard, his entire body is hairy.
  • Commissar Cap: The only thing that he has been consistently wearing, since he was a kid, is his red hat
  • Death from Above: His signature ability is becoming hundreds of tons heavy and dropping his whole weight onto his enemies from high places. Ironically, his defeat is the opposite of this, with Hajrudin sending him up against the birdcage.
  • Fat Bastard: While he's not the meanest of the crew, he still likes to inflict pain in his enemy and is really obese.
  • Flat Character: Especially when compared to the other quirkier executives. He has almost no lines to speak of, and gets defeated rather quickly.
  • Formerly Fit: Sixteen years ago, he used to have a body that would put a body-builder to shame. Now, his body is like that of a sumo wrestler.
  • Gonk: With his round fat body and long beard, he's not winning any beauty context.
  • Kev Lard: Even kicking Machvise in the ass will hurt you, as Dellinger accidentally realized.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Machvise carries around a shield, but not for defense. Instead he uses it in conjuction with his Devil Fruit to hit people with it while falling on them.
  • Signature Laugh: His laugh is "Nihihihi".
  • Sinister Shades: Has a pair of glasses that doesn't show his eyes. Still less sinister than those of fellow crewmembers like Trebol or Vergo.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Machvise/Machbyse.
  • Stout Strength: He's very fat, to the point of having a round body, but is also very strong.
  • Tattooed Crook: Has the jolly roger of the Donquixote Pirates tattooed on both his arms.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: In battle, Machvise's main attack is to just crush people with his weight but the Ton-Ton Fruit makes his attacks highly destructive. Unfortunately for him, Hajrudin is stronger.
  • Verbal Tic: Has the habit of ending his sentences with "Iiin".
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: All of his attacks consist of him slamming against the opponent. The only difference between them is the weight he becomes.

Devil Fruit: Pop-Pop Fruit

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

One of the officers of Pica's army, the commando division, of the Donquixote Pirates. He has a really short temper and is not forgiving of those who fail him or don't follow orders. He's also one of Doflamingo's most devoted subordinates. He has eaten the Pop-Pop Fruit (Pamu Pamu no Mi) which gives him the ability to inflate and explode any non-living object he touches or himself.

During the events of Dressrosa, he fights Bartolomeo, Cavendish and Nico Robin. He's then arrested by the marines along witht the rest of the crew.


  • Action Bomb: Gladius can make himself burst too. Naturally, he doesn't die from this.
  • Arm Cannon: One of the uses of his Pop-Pop Fruit is to inflate some devices around his wrists and generate two explosive blasts.
  • Bad Boss: While he does care for the other main member of the Donquijote Pirates, he has no problem with leaving his subordinates to die and kills them without remorse if they fail him.
  • Badass Longcoat: Wears a cool black coat with golden gears on it.
  • Balloonacy/Stepping Stones in the Sky: One of the more unique usages of Gladius' ability involves turning bullets into floaty cannonballs and then jumping on them to gain altitude, giving an entire new meaning to Projectile Platforms.
  • Berserk Button: He has many of these, but if you want to be sure to make his hat explode, then you have to not follow his orders.
  • Coat, Hat, Mask: Zig zagged. His outfit consists of a Badass Longcoat, a Cool Mask and a Nice Hat, but the latter tends to get blown up because of his powers, making him hatless until he starts wearing a new one, only to blow it up again and so on...
  • Compressed Hair: It's incredible how he manages to fit all his hair under a top hat/helmet.
  • Consummate Professional: Gladius clearly sees himself as this, given his fury at his colleagues' sloppiness or treachery and his grumbling about always being "the one who clears up the crumbs". It's still decidedly relative, though.
  • Flechette Storm: He can make his hairs explode, shooting them like sharp darts. After this attack he becomes bald.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Even though he wears goggles instead of traditional glasses, the personality fits completely, though.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Possesses a literally explosive temper, which arises whenever he perceives someone has tardy, incompetent, or disrespectful to his captain.
  • Having a Blast: Gladius ate the Pop-Pop Fruit, which allows him to make himself or any inorganic material inflate and burst.
  • Jerkass: Aside from some affection towards the other officers, with whom he's still quite abrasive, he's very mean and shows no sympathy for anyone else.
  • Lean and Mean: He's tall (though not to the exent of the executives) and has a really abrasive personality.
  • Morton's Fork: Puts Bartolomeo in this situation; after the former sets up the cliff Robin's climbing on to explode at his will and then inflates himself (when he's attacked in this state, he'll fire off his poisonous hairs which can hit Robin and Cavendish), he says that whether Gladius is attacked or not, Robin will still be harmed. Bartolomeo responds by putting a Containment Field around him and Gladius and then tries to kill the latter. He failed, but Robin is still saved by Cavendish.
  • Mr. Exposition: Along with Senior Pink and Lao G, he explains to Baby 5 (and the audience) the history of the White City.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a classy hat. Too bad he pops it with his powers. He switches it with a Cool Helmet wich suffers the same fate.
  • No-Neck Chump: After he inflates himself, he becomes so round that his neck is no longer visible. This saves him against Bartolomeo, who, since he cannot see where his neck is, stabs him in a non-lethal area.
  • Personality Power: He has an "explosive" temper and can make anything he touches explode. It's not rare to see him making his hat explode in a fit of rage.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: The Pop Pop Fruit works on the ground too and he can make entire landscapes explode.
  • "Pop!" Goes the Human: Can invoke a non-lethal version of this on himself, inflating until he explodes.
  • Required Secondary Power: Naturally, he doesn't die when he blows up himself.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name can be either Gladius or Gradius.
  • Spiky Hair: His long blue hair is very spiky, a la Super Saiyan 3. This makes it even more useful as darts. He used to have shorter hair in the past.
  • Steam Punk: His design heavily incorporates this theme. With many golden gears-like decorations on his black coat.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: His Devil Fruit ability consists of inflating any non organic object, living toys included, he's in contact with until it explodes.
  • Touch of Death: His devil fruit doesn't work on living people (except himself) but does on living toys, making him a lethal opponent against Thunder Soldier.
  • Weaponized Headgear: Gladius has a move where he inflates his headgear and then pops it, sending sharp chunks around him.
  • Would Hit a Girl: When Baby 5 is attempting to kill Doflamingo, Gladius shoots her with complete nonchalance.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has light blue hair.
  • You Have Failed Me: Because of his short temper, he's the officer who's the most prone to doing this to the subordinates.
  • Your Head Asplode: Is about to make this with the Thunder Soldier, as he's made of tin, but Luffy saves him.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Tries to prevent Nico Robin and Bartolomeo to go and help Rebecca and Kyros against Diamante.

Devil Fruit: Spin-Spin Fruit

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

One of the officers of Pica's army of the Donquixote Pirates. He's been a member of the crew since he was young and is therefore very loyal. He's also a compulsive gambler, and often ask Baby 5 to borrow him some money. He has eaten the Spin-Spin Fruit (Guru Guru no Mi), which gives him the ability to rotate any part of his body.

He's first seen going on a mission to Punk Hazard with Baby 5, where they fight Franky but are ultimately defeated, and Nami and Usopp prevent them from escaping. He's sent back to Doflamingo by Trafalgar Law to intimidate the Shichibukai.

In Dressrosa, Buffalo assists Kyros in decapitating one of Doflamingo's string puppets but, believing it is the true one, he attacks Kyros in revenge. The latter dispatches him easily, making him the first officer to be defeated. Then he gets arrested along with the crew.


  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: He's able to do rotate any part of his body thanks to the Spin-Spin Fruit.
  • Bash Brothers: He and Baby 5 work really well together, using both their powers together to great effect.
  • Birds of a Feather: He's close with Baby 5 because both of them were abandoned by their families in the past.
  • Blow You Away: By spinning his own body very fast, he can create typhoons.
  • Chained by Fashion: Wears chains around his torso.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: After believing that Kyros killed Doflamingo, he tries to avenge his master, but the gladiator quickly defeats him.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: All There in the Manual states that he born under a ruthless government that forced families to abandon children to reduce the need of sustaining larger families, and was forced to live in a sewer before the Doflamingo family found him.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's not a nice person, but doesn't tolerate someone who cheats.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: The Spin-Spin Fruit (Guru Guru no Mi) lets him rotate his body(parts) and fly.
  • Fat Bastard: He's not as fat as Machvise, but he's even more of a jerk.
  • Flight: He can fly by using his arms as propellers.
  • Food as Bribe: In flashbacks, Buffalo was bribed twice with ice cream by Law. Both times involved him witnessing Law hurting Corazon, which is considered a bad thing in the group.
  • The Gambling Addict: True to his spinning theme, he loves playing roulette and often asks Baby 5 some money.
  • Gonk: Has large buck teeth and a disproportionate body.
  • Helicopter Hair: Buffalo has hair in the shape of a propeller which he can rapidly rotate, thanks to him eating the Spin-Spin Fruit, and fly through the air. He has propellers on his feet too to keep him stable.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Baby 5. While she's average sized, Buffalo is three times the size of an average human.
  • Improbable Age: Along with Baby 5, he has joined the crew when he was still a kid.
  • Made of Iron: Manages to stay conscious even after getting hit by Nami's lightning bolts.
  • Neck Snap: On the receiving end of this by Kyros.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: In a flashback he tells Trafalgar Law his real name, while Buffalo is a name he probably got upon joining the Donquixote Pirates.
  • Perpetual Smiler: He's constantly smiling, though it's not clear if it's because he's always entusiastic or his teeth are simply too big.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Subverted. He's furious at Kyros for having (seemingly) killed Doflamingo, but he's immediately defeated.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In Punk Hazard, upon seeing Law, the marines and the Straw Hats approaching, he and Baby 5 tries to escape, but Nami and Usopp stop them.
  • Spin Attack: Buffalo's fond of this whenever he wields Baby 5.
  • Tattooed Crook: Has the crew smilie tattooed on his teeth.
  • Those Two Guys: He's often seen with Baby 5 until she defected from the crew. This is probably because they joined the crew together.
  • Verbal Tic: He often imitates the sound of a propeller ("Nnnniin") while talking, not to mention his habit of ending sentences with "Dasuyan".
  • X-Ray Sparks: When Nami hits him with a bolt, you can see his skeleton.
