Eleven Supernovas
The Eleven Supernovas Post-Time Skip (Missing Roronoa Zoro)Characters

"Somewhere along this lot may be the one who'll lead the next generation of pirates. If this many rookies pour in at once, the New World will be a sea of blood."
Shakuyaku "Shakky" describing the Eleven Supernovas, Chapter 498

At the same time Luffy and Zoro gained in infamy, other rookie pirates managed to acquire bounties over 100 million berries by the time they reached Sabaody, the end of Paradise. They have taken differing routes along the first half of the Grand Line, implicitly facing dangers and hardships equal to that of the Straw Hat crew. Although most of them have never met each other before unwittingly gathering in Sabaody, they are notorious for having gained exceptional bounties at the same time period, earning them this collective moniker.

After the time-skip, they are collectively known as the "Worst Generation", alongside Marshall D. Teach, as they have gained even more notoriety for their crimes and, sometimes, their willingness to challenge the the Four Emperors. But their affiliations and loyalties vary widely. Most strike out on their own, forming alliances based on what benefits them best at that moment. Some even became Warlords working for the World Government. Others have also joined the ranks of the Emperors themselves. They are a group-wide Wild Card, each seeking something different from life and their careers. The one constant is what they represent, what their meteoric rise symbolizes, and what they all personally embody: the Dawn of an Era of unprecedented change amid a status quo that refuses to change at every turn.

    In General 
  • The Alliance: There've been a few made between various Supernovas.
    • Luffy and Law make an alliance at Punk Hazard with the intent to overthrow Kaido. It's later expanded to include the Kozuki Family and the Mink Tribe. After Kid's alliance below falls apart, he unofficially joins theirs by taking advantage of their plan to go after Kaido in order to seek his own revenge on the Emperor, and later directly teams up with Law, at the latter's suggestion, to fight Big Mom. During that same battle, Drake also (unofficially) joins the alliance after he's outed as The Mole and targeted by his former crew. A week after Kaido and Big Mom are defeated and the crews prepare to depart Wano and go their separate ways, Law announces that since they've succeeded in their goal of defeating Kaido, the alliance is over and they're all rivals again.
    • Luffy temporarily teams up with Bege to take down Big Mom at her tea party; the alliance ends after the two crews escape Totto Land, but the two sides remain at least somewhat friendly afterward.
    • Kid, Apoo, and Hawkins have a meeting with the intention of forming their own alliance to take down Shanks. Shortly afterward, Kaido falls to the ground in front of them. The nascent alliance is immediately dissolved, as it was a trap on Apoo's end from the beginning (since he was working for Kaido all along), and Hawkins joins Kaido's side to save himself and his crew while Kid is held prisoner by Kaido. Luffy later invites him to join the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance to beat Kaido, but Kid rejects it, telling Luffy that because of Hawkins' and Apoo's betrayal, and what happened to Killer (being forced to eat a failed SMILE), he would never trust anyone outside his crew again. Though, as mentioned above, he does end up working with them during the raid on Onigashima.
  • Almighty Janitor: "Janitor" is a harsh description, but despite not being recognized as Emperors, their victory over Big Mom in Wano earned Kid and Law bounties in the same league as them, 3 billion berries each. For context, said bounties are just below Buggy's and equal to Luffy's.
  • Ambition Is Evil: In-universe, this is the evident logic behind them being referred to as "The Worst Generation", what with them being the only generation of pirates in recent times to actively threaten the Status Quo by taking on the Four Emperors. Especially so since Blackbeard tends to be lumped in with them.
  • Animal-Motif Team: While they're not really a team, each member has their own Animal Motif. Kid's animal is a bull, Luffy's is a monkey, Hawkins's is a horse, Drake's is an Allosaurus, Law's is a snow leopard, Apoo's is an orangutan, Killer's is a weasel, Bonney's is a deer, Bege's is a Koala, Zoro's is a shark, and Urouge's is an elephant.
  • Character Focus: While all of the Supernovas are introduced together at Sabaody Archipelago, the amount of focus each individual Supernova gets varies significantly. Some, like Law in Dressrosa or Bonney in Egghead, are featured as the Arc Hero in their respective arc and receive fleshed out backstories and storylines. Others, like Hawkins in Wano, are sort of just there in the middle of everything and don't get much in the way of development or story relevance.
  • Chekhov's Army: They debut as minor characters at the Sabaody Arc, but become much more important and involved with the plot after the Straw Hats reach the New World.
  • Dawn of an Era: If Whitebeard's death signals the end of the Golden Age of Piracy, the arrival of these rookies (plus Blackbeard) into the New World truly begins the next great era, with Blackbeard taking Whitebeard's place among the Emperors and the rest of the Supernovas causing insane amounts of trouble in hopes of breaking the status quo. However, it isn't until Luffy and Zoro arrive into the New World two years after did things really begin to go full steam ahead, starting with Luffy's defeat of Doflamingo and his own rise to Emperor status after the incident with Big Mom. The beginning of their era is cemented when Law and Kid defeat Big Mom, with the former outright declaring that the era of the Four Emperors is over.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In their debut arc, the Supernovas are introduced but are given little focus outside of Law electing to save Luffy at the end of the Marineford arc. Later, each of them get to play a bigger role during one arc after the time-skip: Law becomes a major supporting character and the deuteragonist of the Dressrosa arc, Whole Cake Island gives major focus to Bege, the Wano Arc gives more of the spotlight to Drake, Hawkins, Apoo and (most of all) Kid and Killer, and the Egghead arc features Bonney as a major character and gives significant focus to her past and her relationship with her father Kuma.
  • The Dreaded: All of the Supernovas plus Blackbeard are known as "The Worst Generation". As a generation of pirates born between two eras, the main reason why they are so feared is not only for their massive amount of potential, but also for their tendency to somehow be in the center of any major event that may disrupt the balance of the world. This starts with Luffy and his involvement in the Paramount War and only increases during the Time Skip and beyond, when Luffy and Zoro finally enter the New World with the rest of the Straw Hats.
  • Explaining Your Powers to the Enemy: In the Sabaody Arc, where the Supernovas are introduced, most of their powers are briefly shown but never explained nor named. After the Time Skip, when the Supernovas get more involved with the main story, the names of their Devil Fruits are gradually revealed either in the story or through the SBS or the Vivre Card databook.
  • Foreshadowing: The brief alliance between Luffy, Law and Kid during the Sabaody Archipelago arc against the Marines ends with Kid announcing that all three of them should meet each other again in the New World. Lo and behold, the three of them reunite in the Wano arc and (unofficially) reignite this alliance to face off against Kaido and Big Mom.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: While a few have pre-pirate infamy, most of them start out as no-name rookies. They gradually become known as the eleven most dangerous rookies in the Grand Line, and during the Time Skip they cause so much trouble that they get lumped with the moniker of "The Worst Generation". Eventually, by the time of the Onigashima War, they're openly acknowledged as the single greatest threat to the Balance of Power and overall stability of the One Piece world, due to their willingness to challenge both the World Government and the Four Emperors, and more than one person believes that one of them will one day become the Pirate King.
  • The Good, the Bad, and the Evil: Luffy, Law, and Kid are the three most prominent Supernovas and share a particular moral dynamic:
    • Luffy is the Good. He's a Nice Guy overall, and is friendly and good-natured when not pissed off.
    • Law is the Bad. He's a Jerk with a Heart of Gold who has nasty rumors and stories surrounding him, with his true character frequently put into question and being primarily motivated by revenge for his benefactor, and is a true pirate, but is not a dangerous psychopath like Kid.
    • Kid is the Evil. He's a straight-up Jerkass, violent and sociopathic, being responsible for several civilian casualties, and merciless against those who ridicule him (or even those who are just begging for their lives), despite having some standards.
  • Hero of Another Story: When they are introduced, they are the most dangerous pirates in Paradise, each having attained a large bounty thanks to their criminal actions; however, none of their pasts are elaborated on, giving each of them an air of mystery. After the Time Skip, they get more involved with the main story as either allies or opponents of the Straw Hats.
  • Intergenerational Rivalry: They are all a part of the same generation in the pirating sense, but they're all over the place when it comes to actual ages, with several having at least a decade over Luffy (with Bege and Urouge being in their 40s). Bonney, on the other hand, is way younger, actually being 10 (12 after the Time Skip).
  • Named After Somebody Famous: With the exception of Killer, all of them are named after famous pirates or historical criminals from Real Life.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: With the possible exception of the Warlords, the Supernovas are established as the most dangerous pirates in the first half of the Grand Line, with each of them having bounties exceeding 100 million. However, the threats of the New World are often shown to be much more dangerous and most Supernovas struggle to adapt to its more dangerous and absurd islands. Although 100 million berries bounties are considered exceptional in Paradise, in the New World they are considered commonplace and even weak.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Although the various Supernovas are known for their infamous reputations as well as catastrophic deeds, there are still limits and rules that they adhere to. For instance, most of them know better than to attack a Celestial Dragon as they know it would incite the retaliation of an Admiral.
  • Running Gag: Every time that Kid, Law, and Luffy are together they start bickering with each other, even if they are surrounded by enemies.
  • The Rival: Since they all aim for the One Piece, they're all Luffy's rivals, although he only acknowledges Trafalgar Law and Eustass Kid as such.
  • Small Name, Big Ego:
    • Downplayed. They're powerful for sure but the Supernovas that choose to challenge the Four Emperors often overestimate their own power severely. Kid, Luffy, and Bege talk a big game about how they will bring down an Emperor but a confrontation with them has never ended well: Kid was beaten senseless by Kaido, while Bege and Luffy barely managed to escape the Big Mom Pirates after their assassination attempt on Big Mom failed.
    • It's been gradually subverted, however, as the Supernovas grow in strength. Luffy in particular is acknowledged as a potential future threat to Big Mom by no less than her strongest subordinate and Sweet Commander, Charlotte Katakuri, who makes it his personal mission during the climax of the Whole Cake Island arc to end Luffy's life before the "potential" part no longer applied. Considering Luffy defeats Katakuri (albeit, barely), he isn't wrong about how dangerous Luffy really is. Come Chapter 903, this is fully subverted as far as Luffy goes, as he's now considered by the world at large to be the Fifth Emperor of the Sea. By the time of the climax of the Wano arc, he's going toe-to-toe with Kaido, who is considered the most dangerous of all the Emperors.
    • Kid and Law also prove their chops during the Wano arc when they team up to tag team Big Mom, and, with immense effort, actually manage to defeat her, becoming the first Supernovas to defeat an Emperor, shortly before even Luffy does.
  • The Stoic: Zoro, Law, Hawkins, Drake, and Killer are usually level-headed, though they all have their moments where they show strong emotions.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Pretty much all of the males besides Bege, Apoo, and Killer are commonly seen with their torsos exposed.
  • Wild Card: Every single one of them, and it's the main reason why they're so feared. Their willingness to challenge the status quo of the world, along with all the chaos they caused when they first entered the New World, is what caused them to gain the moniker "The Worst Generation". Some of them go to challenge the Four Emperors, while some others choose to serve under them.
  • The Worf Effect:
    • Barring the Warlords, the Supernovas are established as arguably the most dangerous pirates in the first half of the Grand Line, with each of them having bounties exceeding 100 million. However, the threats of the New World are often shown to be much more dangerous. Notably, Kid gets taken out by Kaido, while it takes some of Luffy's strongest attacks as well as Nami's help to defeat one of Big Mom's three strongest subordinates, and even then, the fight lasted over eleven hours. One of Big Mom's subordinates even notes this, stating that pirates who actually end up facing the Emperors and their forces run into an insurmountable wall.
    • After the Wano arc Kid and Law came out as some strong contenders to get the One Piece and then get immediately crushed by Shanks and Blackbeard, respectively, with their ships destroyed to enforce that they are out of the race.
  • Worthy Opponent: While initially dismissed as "weak and naive kids", as the Supernovas grow stronger and stronger, each of the Emperors begin to openly acknowledge that their generation is the greatest threat to their previously insurmountable dominance over the New World. By the time of the Wano arc, the Emperors endure the greatest challenge to their authority since the Paramount War two years prior, when Luffy, Law, and Kid enter an all-out war with Kaido and Big Mom, and eventually come out on top.

Kid Pirates

    In General

Eustass "Captain" Kid's pirate crew. First introduced during the Sabaody Archipelago Arc, the crew has a heavy metal look.

Their ship is the Victoria Punk and they have a Combined bounty of at least 670,000,000 Berries.

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Once Kid and Killer are defeated by Shanks, the remnants of the crew beg for their lives and the lives of their captain, even giving Shanks their Road Poneglyph rubbings to appease him. It does not save them.
  • All There in the Manual: The SBS reveals that the South Blue island that Kid, Killer, Heat and Wire were born in was unaffiliated with the World Government and ruled by five criminal gangs: one for each of the four districts plus another gang ruling above the other four that acted as the country's royalty. The four aforementioned characters each ruled one of the smaller gangs. Then, one day, Kid and Killer's childhood crush got killed by the ruling gang. This infuriated Kid, who took it upon himself to unite the four lesser gangs and overthrow the ruling gang. After the dust settled, Kid decided that he didn't want to live in such a confining place anymore, so he started his own pirate crew with Killer, Heat and Wire and set out to sea.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Despite the huge jump in power Kid and Killer made in the Wano arc, when the Kid Pirates demand a rematch with the Red Hair Pirates, Shanks, fearing what Kid can do to the bystanders in the crossfire, lays out Kid in one hit with Divine Departure, also taking out Killer as splash damage. The rest of the crew immediately surrender and hand over the Poneglyph scribblings to Shanks. To add insult to injury, Dorry and Brogy annihilate the Victoria Punk with a double slash. The narration declares that the Kid Pirates have been completely destroyed.
  • Gang of Hats: Like Kid, they're all punk rockers.
  • Goth: They have a dark, metal look.
  • Guns Akimbo: Reck prefers to fight by dual-wielding flintlocks.
  • Man Bites Man: Dive can be seen fighting one of the Beast Pirates by biting him.
  • Meaningful Name: The Kid Pirates ship, the Victoria Punk, is named after Kid and Killer's childhood crush, whose full name was Victoria Shiruton Doruyanaika.
  • Musical Theme Naming: Most members have names related to aspects of Punk Rock culture, like genres, bands or just practices like Gig or (Stage) Dive.
  • Oh, Crap!: Several members can only look on in horror as Dorry and Brogy prepare to sink their ship.
  • Tears of Fear: Once Shanks is on the ship, several members cry begging for mercy and to spare their captain. Shanks just ignores them and has Dorry and Brogy sink their ship.
  • True Companions: After Killer is forced to eat a defective SMILE and ends up unable to stop laughing, the Kid Pirates collectively decide to become a "cheerful crew" and mimic his laughter so that the "cheerful Killer" won't stand out.
  • Uncertain Doom: They were last seen sinking to the bottom of the ocean after Victoria Punk was split in two by Dorry and Brogy.

    Eustass "Captain" Kid 

    "Murder Machine" Killer 

"Murder Machine" Killer

Voiced by: Kenji Hamada (JP), Leo Fabian (EN), José Antonio Macías (Netflix Dub LatAm, Stampede)

Age: 25 (Pre-Timeskip), 27 (Post-Timeskip)

Debut: Chapter 498 (Manga), Episode 392 (Anime)

"You got lucky."

Born in the South Blue and a childhood friend of Eustass Kid, Killer is the first mate to the Kid Pirates, and one of the eleven pirates dubbed with the moniker "Supernova". A man of few words, much of Killer's personality is unknown, except he is slightly arrogant, yet much more level-headed than his captain.

His first known bounty was 162,000,000 berries. His bounty after the Time Skip is 200,000,000 berries.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Very small example, but the gauntlet part of his "Punishers" are gold colored in the manga according to a poster, while the anime has them gray pre-timeskip and dark blue post-timeskip.
  • Aerith and Bob: All the other Supernovas have well though-out names referencing something. For Killer, Oda took about five seconds to think of a name.
  • Affably Evil: In comparison to Kid's much more violent behavior and usually acting like a dick to everyone around him, Killer is genuinely friendly, reasonable and cool-headed, and tends to be the voice of reason.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Begs Hawkins to spare Kid's life, even offering to give up his own if that's what it takes. Hawkins naturally refuses (although he ends up paying dearly for it a few moments later).
  • And I Must Scream: Killer never laughs because people used to ridicule him for his peculiar laugh. Unfortunately for him, he was fed a defective Smile, which means he is almost always laughing and, at the same time, crying because of it.
  • Animal Motifs: According to the SBS, weasels, as Killer resembles the Kamaitachi, Youkai appearing as weasels that use sickle like claws to cut people without them even knowing.
  • Anime Hair: Long, wild, Super Saiyan 3-like blonde hair, to be precise. As Kamazo, he ties it up into a long ponytail.
  • Armor-Piercing Attack: Killer's "Kamaa Sonic" technique has the blades on the Punisher rotate at the speed of sound and generate a soundwave slash to bypass an enemies defense and strike their insides which he developed to get around Kaido's legendary hide, to great success.
  • Badass Normal: Killer is the only Supernova besides Zoro not shown to have a Devil Fruit. When he was taken at Wano, Killer was fed a defective SMILE that gave him a perpetual laugh and removes any possibility for Killer to gain a Devil Fruit ability. Despite lacking any supernatural power, with his cunning and strength, Killer outsmarts Hawkins' strategy and defeats him.
  • Brains and Brawn: Both of them are exceptionally strong, but since he and Kid are basically counterparts to Luffy & Zoro/Sanji, Kid outclasses Killer in power. Thankfully, Killer is intelligent and cunning enough to keep up with him and also tries to keep his captain from doing stupid decisions.
  • Childhood Friends: He befriended Kid when they were kids because of their common love for spaghetti. The real reason he ate a failed SMILE is because Orochi said he could save his captain, which implies Killer only became Kamazo in order to keep Orochi from executing Kid.
  • Does Not Like Spam: He and Kid share a hatred of curry udon. According to Oda, this stemmed from a childhood incident where they got beaten up by their mutual crush, Shiruton Doruyanaika, for laughing at her when she accidentally spilled curry broth on herself.
  • The Dragon: Considering Killer is basically Kid's bodyguard, he is definitely filling this role. Especially considering he balances out Kid's nasty temper. For example, he actually tries to salvage the peace negotiations between Kid, Hawkins, and Apoo before a fight breaks out.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's furious that Hawkins would resort to using Kid as a straw doll during their fight just to force Killer in submission.
  • Evil Counterpart: Killer is a parallel to Zoro just like Kid is to Luffy. Both are Supernovas, and the only ones who aren't captains, with no Devil Fruit powers and are swordsmen.
  • The Faceless: He is never seen without his mask and he never takes it off in public, not even to eat. Until Chapter 937 where we get to see his face for the first time without knowing that it belongs to Killer until Chapter 944 reveals that Kamazo and Killer are one and the same.
  • Genius Bruiser: Killer is not only a very strong fighter, but he's also incredibly intelligent, a master of analyzing the weak spots of his enemies and fully capable of using that knowledge to not only perfectly counter their attacks but also to ruthlessly take advantage of them for his own. Apoo and Hawkins get their weaknesses used and rather masterfully exploited by Killer during his encounters with them.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Killer is much, much more level-headed than his boss, to the point where he arranges most of Kid's black market visits and every meeting to minimize the risk of his captain ripping some guy a new orifice, just in case they push one of Kid's many, many berserk buttons.
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: A pair of spinning, reverse-wielded, wrist-mounted sickle blades, called "Punishers". It's been shown the blades can spin like buzzsaws or lock in place for regular sword play, making them versatile.
  • Ironic Name: His name is "Killer", yet he's the voice of reason to his Ax-Crazy captain.
  • Mask Power: He always wears a metal helmet that covers his face, so nobody can hear his laugh.
  • Morality Pet: Eustass Kid is mean towards anyone, allies included, and enjoys torturing people. The only one he shows genuine care for is Killer, who's been his friend since they were kids. Kid is enraged when he realizes what Orochi did to Killer.
  • Mr. Exposition: Knows a surprising deal about Marine ships and traditions. He also knows the trick behind Apoo's music attacks, telling it to Kid, Luffy and Zoro so they can protect themselves.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: In his first appearance, Killer is incredibly lanky yet still has the strength to clash with a giant man like Urouge on even footing. After the timeskip, Killer has noticeably bulked up.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His actual name is "Killer" while his epithet is "Murder Machine", indicating how dangerous he can be.
  • Not So Stoic: He's calm most of the time, in contrast to his captain, but gets visibly annoyed by Kid's argument with Apoo and Hawkins, namely since they should actually be discussing the potential alliance. After being fed a SMILE, he can't be a stoic anymore.
  • Not So Above It All: Killer is one of the most mature and level-headed Supernovas but he too considers General Franky to be awesome and turns into a mecha-fanboy upon seeing it in action.
  • Number Two: He's Kid's first mate and they've been friends since childhood; Kid also calls Killer his "partner".
  • Odd Name Out: The only Supernova aside from Luffy who isn't named after a real life pirate. Oda admitted Killer's name was chosen out of laziness.
  • Offwith His Head!: The curved blades of the Punishers makes them ideal for decapitating targets, even having a technique called "Beheading Claws" to drive the point home.
  • Only Sane Man:
    • Killer is the most reasonable member of the Kid's pirates and is the one who tries to stop Kid, Apoo, and Hawkins from arguing instead of forming an alliance like they should. During the assault at Onigashima, Killer takes this role much to his chagrin while dealing with Kid, Luffy, and Zoro, who are rampaging and yelling at each other for blowing their cover.
    • Similarly, Killer advised Kid to keep his guard up, despite his crew wanting to take on another Emperor, as his advice is ignored and his crew and ship end up getting destroyed to Kid letting his guard down with Shanks due to his arrogance.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: In-universe, Killer laughing nonstop is considered strange by Kid, who angrily demands to know what the hell happened to Killer that he can't stop laughing even though he always hated his own laugh.
  • Perpetual Smiler: After being forced to eat a failed SMILE, he's now unable to stop smiling or laughing. Which is even more tragic since he previously wore a mask so nobody could see him like that.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: With Kid. Kid is an ultra-violent, incredibly aggressive and impulsive, and bloodthirsty brute of a man, while Killer is far more calm and level-headed and is usually the one to talk Kid out of starting a fight or pulverizing someone.
  • The Reveal: Kamazou the Mankiller is actually Killer, who was forced to eat a failed SMILE and was made one of Orochi's underlings. We also finally get to see Killer's face and now Killer is unable to stop smiling and laughing, something he hated so much that he hid his face because of it.
  • Rugged Scar: After the timeskip, Killer has a mass of scar tissue on his left arm from Kid's failed siege on the Red-Haired Pirates.
  • Screw Destiny: He calls out Hawkins for being a Dirty Coward by always falling back on probability readings as justification for giving up instead of facing supposedly impossible odds head-on to change your own fate.
  • Signature Laugh: Deconstructed. Killer's laugh is "Fafafafa", a nod to the song Psycho Killer, but due to mockery and his own hatred of his laugh, he ended up never laughing and started wearing a mask to hide his face. Sadly for him, after being force-fed a SMILE he can't do anything but laugh.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: As shown in one SBS, he has liked spaghetti ever since he was a kid. As nowadays he wears a mask that covers his whole face, the mask has little holes in it to help him eat his spaghetti.
  • Uncertain Doom:
    • For over a hundred chapters. While Kid is sent to prison, Killer's fate after meeting Kaido remains unknown until the second act of the Wano arc, where it is revealed that he has been forced to eat a SMILE Fruit and became Kamazo, an assassin for Orochi.
    • Killer is last seen sinking to the bottom of the ocean after Victoria Punk is split in two by Dorry and Brogy.
  • Undying Loyalty:
    • As shown in his fight against Hawkins, Killer is willing to throw away his pride and life if it means saving his captain's life. And the reason Killer became a pseudo-Pleasure in the first place was because Orochi told him it was the only way to keep Kid from getting executed.
    • Killer tries to take the brunt of Shanks's Divine Departure to protect Kid, which ends up failing and only results in both him and Kid getting knocked out.
  • Worf Had the Flu: While Killer indeed loses to Zoro, he later comments that he is far more skilled with his regular weapons (called Punishers) than the scythes he used as Kamazo, which indicates that Killer wasn't at his peak in the fight either.
  • You Have Failed Me: Non lethal example. Under the identity of Kamazo, he works for Orochi but, after failing the task of killing Toko, gets sent to prison. Justified since his Kamazo identity is a wanted criminal, while his affiliation with Orochi is probably a secret.

A member of the Kid Pirates loyal to his captain.

  • Breath Weapon: He can breathe out a plume of flames just like some real life rock/metal bands do in their concerts.
  • Glasgow Grin: His mouth stretches to the sides of his face.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In Wano, he comments on Sanji being pathetic for begging for mercy the way he did. In Elbaf, he himself begs for mercy on his captain's behalf to the Red Hair Pirates.
  • Meaningful Name: His name, Heat, reflects his ability to breathe fire.
  • Playing with Fire: Heat cannot control fire like a Flame-Flame fruit user, but he can breathe it.

Devil Fruit: Straw-Straw Fruit

"I apologize for my men threatening you. Taking a life on this day will only bring our crew bad fortune."

Coming from the North Blue, Basil Hawkins is the captain of the Hawkins Pirates. He tends to act in a stoic manner even when confronted with danger. This is perhaps because as Hawkins is a fortune teller, he has little to worry about concerning his fate. His Devil Fruit is the Straw-Straw Fruit (Wara Wara no Mi), and it is a strange one. Hawkins can make voodoo dolls that will absorb any blow he takes and deflect the damage to the person the doll was based off of, and avoid fatal injuries as well, though with a limit of 10 straw effigies. In addition, it allows him to turn into a scarecrow-like monster with nails for claws, or create a demon-like entity that serves as as extension of his body. He also has very accurate foresight, handy for his fortune telling. Another unusual ability connected to his powers is his tarot card deck, which can influence fortunate or unfortunate events to happen each time he draws a card.

After the Time Skip, he strikes an alliance with Apoo and Kid. He later joins Kaido instead and becomes one of the Animal Kingdom Pirates' Headliners.

His first known bounty is 249,000,000 berries. His bounty after the Time Skip is 320,000,000 berries.

  • Accidental Truth: When Kaido gets drunk and begins rampaging through the town in his dragon form, looking for Luffy and Law, Hawkins tells him that they are hiding at the ruins of the Oden Castle, both to direct his drunken rampage away from the general populace and to eradicate the ruins, that are a major source to shogun Orochi's paranoia. He had no idea that most of the Straw Hat and Heart crews were indeed at the castle at that very moment, and would've been wiped out if it hadn't been for Shinobu.
  • Affably Evil: Hawkins is against the idea of needless violence in social situations, as seen when he stops his crew-mate from attacking a waiter after the latter accidentally spilled spaghetti all over his clothes, even apologizing to the waiter himself. When he runs into Luffy and Zoro in Wano, he surmises the possibility that they're there on a vacation, and even politely suggests to the two Straw Hats that they should just take their leave before trouble brews. This hints that Hawkins would have simply allowed them to leave without risk of confrontation had the Straw Hats complied. However, despite this, in battle, he is very cruel and ruthless, having slain almost all of Brownbeard's crew and left Brownbeard on the verge of death and without the use of his legs. His voodoo-power itself implies cruelty and apathy, as he lets other people suffer the damage that he would otherwise sustain and apparently has no problem with it.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: His death is treated in a tragic manner given his choice to serve Kaido due to having been set up by Apoo. As even in his last moments of life Hawkins laments his choice to serve Kaido rather than fight back because he was too much of a coward to fight back and instead swallowed his pride in an effort to save himself. Even further adding to the irony is that Hawkins knew he only had a 1% of survival on Onigashima and could have had a better chance to live if he returned to Kid's side but refused because of how he betrayed him prior and knew he had no right to return after what he did.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Has his left arm sliced off by Killer, after he let his guard down through relying on his connection to Kid to take the blows in his place, failing to realise that Kid's missing arm was a prime target for Killer to aim for as the one location on Hawkins' body that he couldn't deflect the damage from.
  • Animal Motifs: According to the SBS, horses, with which he shares a calm, regal demeanor. As well, Hawkins spends much of the Wano Arc atop his Komashika, on which he travels like a horse.
  • Bad Boss: One of Hawkins abilities is to deflects the damage his receives into other people by using straw dolls. In Wano, Hawkins uses this ability to have his subordinates killed in his place. However, he's never seen using it on his own crewmates, but only members of the Animal Kingdom Pirates.
  • Cards of Power: His deck can create secondary effects depending on what he draws, though he is at the mercy of the draw and runs the risk of it backfiring on him and his men.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: He can turn into a large scarecrow, though this also makes him a bigger target, and he's still just as vulnerable to harm. The basics of his Devil Fruit still apply, as well. Kizaru trounced him when he used it. Granted, Kizaru would have won one way or another, but Hawkins didn't do himself any favors.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Hawkins has no moral problem with using Law's own crewmates as voodoo dolls who will be used as human shields for any of Law's attacks against him. He also knows better than to fight Luffy and Zoro directly and goes out of his way to create as much distance between them as possible. On Onigashima, he uses Kid as one of his voodoo straws to force Killer into submission and hurting himself just to ensure his victory.
  • Cool Sword: A sword made of living straw with a voodoo doll handle, able to change shape thanks to Hawkins's powers without losing its cutting power.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Hawkins gets so wrapped in his fight with Killer by relying on his connection to Kid to prevent Killer from unleashing any serious attacks on him that he forgets about Kid's missing arm, leaving one area on his body that Killer can target without fear of his captain taking the blow. Since the same arm is also where he stores the Voodoo doll that maintains his connection to Kid, this also results in him losing his protection against Killer, who ends the fight in a single blow afterwards and fatally injures him.
  • Dirty Coward: Hawkins is averse to risks, only ever taking the options his tarots tell him have the highest odds of succeeding. It becomes particularly obvious when he fights Killer. Killer states that for all his talk of fate, he was quick to join Kaido when his life was in danger after getting so far into the Grand Line. His voodoo powers further highlight this trait, as Hawkins usually fights from a safe distance and using his strawman techniques rather than engage in direct combat or using his opponents crew members to force them into submission.
  • Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: He smiles in delight at forcing Killer in a situation in which the only way to defeat him is to kill his captain. Killer even calls him out on his sick sense of humor.
  • Face Death with Dignity: As he dies, he converses with Drake one last time about his choices and reveals he was the one who had a 1% chance of survival, after which he calmly slumps against the wall as he accepts his fate and dies.
  • The Fatalist: Has the ability to predict the future, so a lot of his lines, actions, and decisions stem from what he knows will happen. For example, Hawkins fought Kizaru, but knew that he'd survive, and attacked Brownbeard all by his lonesome, because he saw the shadow of death on him.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Wears a large and ornate paldron on his left shoulder, which stands out on his otherwise cloaked and armor-less outfit.
  • Fortune Teller: He can foresee someone chances of surviving or not, though the means by which he does so are still a matter of speculation; it may be some sort of innate ability, or a secondary function of his Devil Fruit.
  • Friendly Enemy: To Urouge, despite being rivals, they temporarily join forces while facing Kizaru and a Pacifista on the Sabaody Archipelago. It doesn't work.
  • Green Thumb: At its most basic, this is what his Devil Fruit bestows upon him, as he can create and control straw.
  • Hidden Depths: He may be a mysterious, voodoo-using pirate, but Oda says he actually has an interest in interior design.
  • Hollywood Voodoo: Hawkins's Straw-Straw Fruit allows him to make voodoo dolls linked to his subordinates and then store them within himself. Any physical damage he takes is redirected to one of the dolls, which shed from his skin as they take damage. The fact that the dolls are made of straw may liken his powers to Ushi no Koku Mairi, a type of Japanese Curse magic involving dolls.
  • Horse of a Different Color: While in Wano under the employ of Kaido, he rides a fierce-looking creature similar to the mythological Japanese Kirin, called a Komashika.
  • I Gave My Word: He released Law's crew members upon Law surrendering himself, as he promised he would.
  • Irony: In his last conversation with X. Drake, he states that he turned to his cards when he, Kid, Killer and Apoo met Kaido and only joined Kaido because they said he had a 40% chance of survival if he joined with him, as opposed to a 0% chance. Turns out the cards only meant it as a small chance, not a guarantee, especially against those that opposed the Animal Kingdom Pirates. He lampshades this in how Kid and Killer fought to the bitter end despite these odds while he was too much of a coward to do so, even when given a second chance to switch sides.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: He repeatedly kicks Killer when on the ground mocking him for thinking they would have a chance to defeat and Emperor given their reputation and influence. Killer however calls him out for his cowardice for just giving up rather than trying to defy them.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em:
    • While he seems to have Law cornered by using his crewmates as human shields, Hawkins is forced to improvise when he determines the chances of Law attacking him anyway are unacceptably high. He changes the confrontation into a hostage exchange: Law's crew for Law himself, which he agrees to.
    • When he, Kid, and Apoo were confronted by Kaido, he and Kid learned that Apoo had screwed them over and was already working for Kaido the whole time. Hawkins saw that his chance of victory if he battled Kaido was 0%, and his chance of successfully escaping from him was also 0%, while the chance of surviving if he submitted was 40%. The way Hawkins saw it, he had no other choice but to join Kaido, though Kid and Killer didn't see it that way.
  • Logical Weakness: He can protect himself from injury by creating straw voodoo effigies that transfer whatever damage is inflicted on him to a nearby person. However, it won't protect Hawkins if that person doesn't have the body part that is being injured, as he learns when he tries using Kid as his effigy, only for Killer to completely bypass it and cut off his left arm, because Kid doesn't have a left arm to transfer the injury to and, once Killer steals the effigy, Hawkins loses the ability to send the damage towards Kid.
  • Marionette Master: He can summon a monstrous scarecrow as an avatar to fight alongside him.
  • Nail 'Em: His scarecrow avatar can spit nails with great force as projectiles.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Hawkins' name is derived from a real life pirate and a privateer. His surname comes from Basil Ringrose, while his given name comes from John Hawkins.
  • Nice to the Waiter: Literally — his introduction shows Hawkins calling off one of his more hot-headed crewmates from attacking a waiter who accidentally spilled food onto said crewmate's clothes and apologizing for his subordinate's aggression.
  • Nigh-Invulnerable: Hawkins has the power to redirect physical damage to other targets via voodoo dolls. He will only take damage once he runs out.
  • Not So Stoic: Is visibly shocked when Killer defeats him by slicing off his arm.
  • Oh, Crap!: In the final moment against Killer, he pulls out a card expecting it to predict how he'll win...only to find out he drew the "Tower" card, which, as the story elaborates, means the end of the current regime, the building of something new, and a new path forward. Essentially, the card is telling him that he made an extremely bad decision choosing to serve Kaido and that Hawkins will be defeated for the coming changes since he was too afraid to stand against the Emperor. He can only react with shock before Killer cuts him down.
  • One-Winged Angel: With his Devil Fruit, Hawkins can become a scarecrow-like monster with nails on top of his fingers. He uses it rarely, when he engages into physical combat.
  • Pet the Dog: His part of the Supernova introduction scene has him prevent a member of his crew from attacking a waiter who spilled spaghetti on the crewman. This is a sharp contrast from the two Supernovas introduced ahead of him, Bonney berating the staff to bring her food faster and Capone Bege assaulting a member of his own crew.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Despite his reputation among the Supernova as The Stoic, he gives a few particularly malicious smiles to Law when forcing him to risk killing his own crewmates if he wants to get a hit in on Hawkins.
  • Regretful Traitor: Killer calls him out on this when Hawkins is attempting to convince him of how futile it is to oppose the Emperors, whilst also one-sidedly beating him down, knowing that Killer can't retaliate without also harming Kid thanks to Hawkins connecting to him with a voodoo doll. Killer points out that Hawkins is so desperate to get him to give in because he secretly regrets losing his nerve when facing Kaido, and wants to make the other Supernovas surrender as well because he's not only ashamed of his cowardice, but also desperate to get somebody else to acknowledge that it was the "logical choice" against somebody as inhumanly strong as an Emperor. Seeing Luffy's alliance standing up to both Kaido and Big Mom at the same time — and moreover, holding their own against them — is making him question whether or not it would have been possible to actually win against the Emperors if he'd held onto his nerve and just tried to fight back, instead of sacrificing his pride and becoming Kaido's subordinate.
    Killer: Don't get emotional now. Besides, I know that deep down you regret the decision you made back then, don't you?! Because you feared dying back then and here we are, still standing!! Fwa fwa fwa!!
  • Sadist: The few moments Hawkins smiles is when he thinks of torturing Law upon capturing him and when he uses Kid as a voodoo doll against Killer to watch him killing his own captain.
  • Scary Scarecrows: His power allows him to create a giant scarecrow that he can control or transform into a smaller one.
  • Squishy Wizard: Hawkins' Straw-Straw powers make him extremely formidable but he himself isn't the most durable fighter. While fighting Kizaru, Hawkins resists his attacks thanks to his voodoo dolls but, the moment he runs out, Hawkins gets quickly defeated. When he fights Killer on Onigashima, Killer slices off his arm and takes away the doll he was using on Kid, and then defeats Hawkins with a couple of attacks.
  • The Stoic: Almost never breaks his grim frown. Probably justified given his powers of cartomancy and damage transferal.
  • Tarot Troubles: Draws tarot cards for various effects in combat — ranging from pursuing his enemies to his allies ending up hurting one another.
  • Tempting Fate: Ironically enough for a guy who tries to predict fate. When he's fighting Killer and had him at a disadvantage by using his power to transfer damage from him to Kid. Hawkins mocks Killer's request to take his life to allow Kid to fight Big Mom, stating that if Killer wants Kid to do so, then he should stop Hawkins himself. These words come back to haunt him when Killer regains himself and proceeds to strike down Hawkins after Hawkins foolishly answers his question on how his Straw-Straw power works.
  • Uncertain Doom: Hawkins was last seen bleeding out in Onigashima after being thoroughly defeated by Killer. It's not impossible that he survived as there is a one percent chance of it happening, but regardless he isn't seen after that.
  • Unusual Eyebrows: In an SBS, Oda reveals that the triangles above Hawkins' eyes are his eyebrows and that every triangle is a single, unusually-shaped, hair.
  • Villain Ball: During his fight with Killer, Hawkins chooses to inform Killer that his last straw-man is Kid, just to see Killer anguish over the fact he can't fight back without injuring his closest companion. However, because he informs Killer that the last straw-man is Kid, and because he's so arrogant that he answers his questions about how his powers work, it gives Killer an idea of how to attack Hawkins directly without harming Kid: Kid's left arm is already gone, so the damage won't be transferred if he attacks Hawkins's left arm. If Hawkins hadn't told Killer that the doll was transferring the damage to Kid just to rub it in his face, he would've killed his own captain unknowingly and probably would've dealt the rebellion a huge blow.
  • Villain Has a Point: When he meets Kid and Killer again on Onigashima, Kid rages at him for betraying them in favor of Kaido. Hawkins however reminds Kid that they both were set up by Apoo and that him joining Kaido was solely to save him and his crew since they had no chance of victory or escape due to the situation. A reasonable point since Hawkins himself was also sincere with the alliance with Kid and had no choice but to join Kaido or be enslaved like Kid and Killer became upon Kaido defeating the duo.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: All of his appearances feature him without an undershirt up until the Wano Arc.
  • Whip Sword: He can combine his sword with his Devil Fruit to turn it into a large straw whip that retains its sharpness.
  • Worf Barrage: Hawkins calls Death Upright "a card of destruction" a seemingly apt description as it summons his giant strawman armed with a Sinister Scythe to attack his foes. Unfortunately for Hawkins, Killer is too strong for the technique, cutting through the scythe and beheading it in an instant.

"Good. That'll make things quicker!"

Coming from the North Blue, X. (pronounced "diez") Drake is the captain of the Drake Pirates. A former Marine Rear Admiral turned pirate, he is aware of many of the Marines' strategies, and projects such as the Pacifista. He is an "Ancient Zoan" Devil Fruit user, having eaten the Dragon-Dragon Fruit (Ryu Ryu no Mi), Model: Allosaurus. After the timeskip, he at some point joined the Animal Kingdom Pirates, and is made one of their Headliners and one of the Tobi Rippo, the six strongest Headliners.

He has a bounty of 222,000,000 berries.

  • Abusive Parents: His father went from being a Marine officer to an exceptionally brutal and cruel pirate who was apparently no less terrible to Drake than he was to his victims. The fact that Drake bears absolutely no grudge against Doflamingo for being responsible for his father's death is very telling of how much Drake doesn't care about him.
  • Accidental Hero: Downplayed. He happened to be on Minion Island as Doflamingo was enacting Birdcage thirteen years ago, but he managed to be outside the cage when it dropped down and was taken in by a Marine ship, and this made Rosinante's lie that Law had escaped on a Marine ship more believable, as the Marines reported they had rescued a young boy just before, which causes Doflamingo to drop the cage.
  • Ambiguous Situation: It's implied that Drake and Trafalgar Law have some kind of history with each other. Back at Sabaody Archipelago, Law and Drake were seemingly on a first-name basis, with Law even goading Drake for a bit. Later on, Drake blows his own cover as a member of Kaido's crew by freeing Law when he's imprisoned in Wano. They don't interact outside of these two instances, so not much is known outside of that.
  • Animorphism: In his case, his Fruit is an Ancient Zoan that turns him into an Allosaur. He is capable of going either full Allosaurus or a hybrid form.
  • Child Soldier: He fought for his father's crew when he was still a teen, and was the crew's heavy hitter even then.
  • Contrived Coincidence: His father was the one who acquired the Op-Op Fruit, and so he was on the same island as another of the Eleven Supernovas, Law, thirteen years ago. It was a turning point for both characters, Law became a Devil Fruit user and managed to escape the Donquixote Family, while it was the point Drake joined the Marines. Both also had an important figure in their life killed by Doflamingo on that day, for Law, it was Doflamingo's brother Rosinante (which Law would seek vengeance for for the next thirteen years), and for Drake it was his own father Barrel (to which he holds no grudge to Doflamingo).
  • Cool Mask: Wear a domino mask under his hat. After the timeskip, he wears a slanted headband along with it, with the headband going over one eye with a hole like the mask.
  • Covert Pervert: Downplayed. Despite being nearly as stone-faced as fellow Supernova Hawkins, entering a room full of naked women in a bathhouse knocks him right to the floor. His reaction seems rather more pure and shy.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He easily beats up Caribou in the latter's mini-adventure after he has just defeated and absorbed Scotch, Kaido's henchman.
  • Cutting the Knot: Drake tends to tackle problems in the most direct, forceful way possible. It often works surprisingly well considering that pirates tend to respect strength above everything else.
  • Dangerous Deserter: Drake left the Marine to become a pirate, just like his father did, and by the time he reaches Sabaody he's one of the most infamous pirates of his generation. By the time-skip, he's joined the ranks of Kaido, one of the Four Emperors of the Sea. Subverted when it's revealed he only pretended to leave the Marines; his real mission is to spy on pirate crews.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: What little the Volume 78 SBS reveals of his past isn't pretty: Drake used to admire his father Barrels, who was a Marine officer at the time. However, Barrels ended up defecting from the Marines and becoming a very cruel pirate, violent to even his own son. Drake still followed him out of sheer fear, until he was taken in by the Marines.
  • Determined Defeatist: When his cover is blown, Drake is given a 1% probability of surviving the night of the Onigashima raid according to Hawkins, but still goes on with his plans. Drake himself lampshades how terrible those odds are, remarking, "I feel sorry for him." In the end he survives, but Hawkins reveals that said probability was his own, not Drake's, and falls dead shortly after.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: In Caribou's cover story, after the titular character has defeated Scotch and is hailed by everyone as a hero, Drake suddenly shows up in his dinosaur form and captures Caribou, who later appears in the prison mines lead by Kaido's forces.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Invoked. Upon reaching the New World, Drake attacks one of Kaido's most beloved islands, because he knew Kaido would retaliate. Drake impresses Kaido to the point of becoming one of his top crewmembers, but Drake wanted to join Kaido's crew to spy on him, not to serve him.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: His dinosaur-transforming Devil Fruit is part of the Ryu Ryu (Dragon-Dragon) family. This is a reference to the Japanese name for dinosaurs, Kyoryu, which literally translates out to "Fearful Dragon", using the ryu spelling. Worth noting that Drake's name itself is an archaic way of referring to dragons.
  • Double Reverse Quadruple Agent: Drake's loyalties are to the Marines first and foremost, but as a SWORD agent going undercover as a pirate, he does ally with and help out various pirate crews.
  • Dual Wielding: A rare example where the weapons are two different ones, as he wields a large rapier and a quadruple headed axe.
  • Enemy Mine: After Queen and Who's-Who oust him as a traitor to the Animal Kingdom Pirates, Drake decides to temporarily team up with Luffy, despite being a Navy spy, due to having nowhere to run to and due to a glowing recommendation from his subordinate Koby. He also later fights with Scratchmen Apoo against Cipher Pol Zero agents despite personally detesting the other Supernova.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Jumping in to stop a battle between Killer and Urouge with a sword in one hand and an axe in the other to show how tough he is and how he's not afraid to pick up a fight.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Drake, as a Marine, is technically an enemy of the Wano alliance, but even he is disgusted at Apoo's suggestion to betray them for the sake of covering his own ass.
  • False Flag Operation: Drake is a Marine Spy who infiltrates in Kaido's crew to take it down from the inside but, for the first part of the Onigashima War, he pretends to fight for the Animal kingdom Pirates. When Queen outs him as a spy, Drake switches side and aligns himself with the Straw Hats.
  • Foreshadowing: After the end of the "Age of Pirates", he comments: "now, the Marines must also change!" A rather odd comment to make for a organization he's defected from, but it turns out he didn't defect and he's still a Marine working undercover.
  • Gang of Hats: Drake and his crew follow a Musketeer theme.
  • Generation Xerox: Drake's father was also a Marine who defected to become a pirate. Drake himself was later taken in by the Marines after Doflamingo killed his father, and then defected later to become a pirate. Subverted in that he's actually deep undercover and is still working with the Marines.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has an X-shaped one on his chin, reflecting his name "X" (although it's pronounced "diez"). Since he's a member of Sword, and a Hero Antagonist at the very worst, it's also an example of "X" Marks the Hero.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: The "X" is pronounced diez, as in "10" in Spanish.
  • Hazy-Feel Turn: Was a Rear Admiral before becoming a pirate. Admiral Kizaru seems to think that Drake switched sides purely because he was bored with being a Marine and thought it would be more fun to become a pirate, though an SBS implies that there's much more to it than that. Later, he becomes a member of the Animal Kingdom Pirates. Except he's still working for the Marines as the Captain of the Sword intelligence unit, and has joined the Animal Kingdom Pirates to gather info.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: His coat, pants, boots, and gloves are all leather and he is very much a badass.
  • Hidden Depths: According to an SBS, Drake has an interest in both reptiles and astrophysics. He's also a mole working for the Marines, and appears to trust and respect his subordinate judgement enough to be open to the idea of working with the Straw Hats.
  • In the Blood: Just like his father, Drake is a former Marine that turned pirate. Except he's not: he's part of SWORD, but undercover.
  • Ki Manipulation: He can use Armament Haki at least, having beaten Caribou into a pulp with it.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: His handsome, clean-cut features include an impressive jawline, and he's a mole in Kaido's forces who's in truth the Captain of Sword, a Marine intelligence unit.
  • The Leader: Drake is the lead officer of SWORD.
  • Magic Pants: In Zoan form, Drake keeps his jacket and hat, which simply change size along with the rest of him. His pants, boots, and gloves mysteriously vanish, only to reappear when he turns human again.
  • The Mole: Drake is actually a deep cover spy for the Marines. He only pretended to defect from them and become a pirate.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Drake's name was taken from 16th century English adventurer and privateer Sir Francis Drake.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: Wears leather jackets without anything underneath.
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: In his fully Zoan form, although it's justified due to how Zoan Fruits work. It's more apparent in Drake's post-timeskip design, where you can actually see his hair on his Allosaurus form due to him not wearing a hat anymore.
  • Odd Name Out: Unlike the other Tobiroppo, Drake's name does not refer to a card game. Fittingly, Drake is not actually loyal to Kaido.
  • Older Than They Look: At nineteen-years-old, he looked like he could be a preteen, and in-universe his description was close enough to the then-thirteen Trafalgar Law for Doflamingo to think the Marines had Law in custody instead of Drake.
  • One-Man Army: Even among the Supernovas, Drake stands out for his ridiculous strength. The Barrels Pirates considered him the strongest of their crew when he was their youngest member, which was before he acquired the power of an Ancient Zoan. He first enters the story by breaking up a fight between 2 other Supernovas, attacks a Pacifista head on, and then survives an encounter with Admiral Kizaru. Drake is later revealed as a Marine spy that was sent to infiltrate Kaido's crew alone (he does have a crew pre-time skip, but they don't seem to have joined with him). He does this in the most direct way possible, by intentionally picking a fight with a subordinate of the Animal Kingdom Pirates and then impressing them with his strength so much that they let him join. Drake is sent by the Emperor's crew to put down Caribou's rebellion, which he handles single-handedly. Drake even refers to himself as a "lone army" ("kogun" 孤軍, こぐん) when he is eventually outed as The Mole and requests to join Luffy's alliance — after he and Luffy simultaneously each knock out a Number in a single hit.
  • One Riot, One Ranger: This is how the Animal Kingdom Pirates use Drake to put an end to Caribou's rebellion. Also, Drake seems to be this to the Marines as well, as he is sent to infiltrate Kaido's crew as a double agent alone separate from the members of Cipher Pol Zero. Justified since Drake was meant to spy on Kaido rather than combat the pirates and he only joins the fight against them when cornered.
  • Spanner in the Works: In a way, back then on Minion Island, Drake unknowingly saved Law's life when Doflamingo tried to find and take him back to the Donquixote Family after Law ate the Ope-Ope Fruit. Corazon lied to Doflamingo that Law was outside of his Birdcage and that the Marines took him under custody, with Baby 5 and Buffalo then confirming to Doflamingo that they intercepted a transmission of a boy being taken custody by the Marines (that boy being Drake). That coincidence allowed Law to escape safely from the island.
  • The Stoic: Drake is very calm and level-headed and his reactions tend to be very low-key. The only exception is when he sees a naked woman.
  • Token Good Teammate: Drake is an undercover Marine, making him the member of the Beast Pirates closer to the good side. He secretly helps Law escaping and, during the Onigashima War, decides to help the Straw Hats into defeating Kaido.
  • Uncertain Doom: Following the Onigashima War, Drake is heavily injured and loses conscious next to Hawkins. His status is left unknown as the other members of SWORD have lost contact with him.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: As seen in an SBS where Oda drew the Supernovas as kids; serious, perpetually frowning Drake used to be a cute Cheerful Child with a grin a mile wide. Then his father defected from the Marines and became a cruel pirate, Drake was constantly abused and only followed his parent he once admired out of fear, and when Doflamingo's crew came a-knocking, Drake instantly jumped ship and left his father to die. His horrible experiences left him with a near-permanent frown now.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: The sight of a naked woman's body is enough to leave him paralyzed and helpless.
  • Wild Card: Aside from his status as a Marine defector, Drake's aims remain completely mysterious. During the Wano arc it's revealed that Drake isn't loyal to Kaido but a deep-cover Marine spy, thus he's a third party in the Onigashima War. During the war, Drake decides to form an alliance with the Straw Hats once his cover is blown.
  • The Worf Effect: During the Onigashima War, Drake gets defeated by the CP-0 agents, showing how strong the top agents of the World Government are, though the agents note that it was not an easy fight.
  • "X" Makes Anything Cool: It's pretty much his motif. The X-shaped scar on his chin, the "X" tattoo on his torso and the fact that his family name "Diez" is represented by a "X". The last of these may be his way of distancing himself from his father, Diez Barrels.
  • You Killed My Father: Averted. Doflamingo is responsible for the death of Barrels, but Drake carries no grudge because his father was a complete scumbag.

Heart Pirates

    In General

Trafalgar Law's pirate crew. First introduced during the Sabaody Archipelago arc, the crew is rather small, with their post time-skip numbers being twenty people other than Law. Notable members include Bepo, a Polar Bear Mink, Penguin and Shachi, a pair that frequently follow Law around, and Jean Bart, a former pirate captain released from slavery.

  • A Day in the Limelight: Penguin, Shachi and Bepo really don't do much in the actual manga. However, they're actually major characters in the spinoff One Piece novel Law. The novel focuses on Law assembling his crew after leaving the Donquixote Family, and as such his crew gets a lot of screentime.
  • Animal Theme Naming: The more minor members of the crew are all named after polar animals: Penguin, Shachi ("Killer Whale"), Ikkaku ("Narwhal"), Uni ("Sea Urchin"), Clione (a nickname for Sea Angels) and Hakugan ("Snow Goose"). Law (Snow Leopard) and Bepo (Polar Bear Mink) also follow this theme, but not in their names. Jean Bart is the Odd Name Out to show that he has joined the crew later.
  • Badass Crew: In addition to simply being such a small crew that reached the second half of the Grand Line, all of them withstand Rayleigh's Conqueror's Haki without passing out, though Shachi admits he almost didn't manage. They also all joined the Minks in battle when Jack attacked.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: During the raid at Onigashima, only Law, Bepo, Shachi, and Penguin reach the island, while the 17 remaining members of the crew remain on the submarine because of Kaido lifting the entire island of Onigashima into the sky, making it impossible for anyone to reach it. Many chapters later, when Luffy is defeated and falls into the sea, the Heart Pirates find and save him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: They look like a bunch of goofs but put up a surprisingly good fight against the Blackbeard Pirates.
  • Devoted to You: They wear Law's Jolly Roger with pride and many appear to have Fanboy streaks towards him, enthusiastically cheering "Yes Captain" and "Aye Aye" at his orders while sporting Blush Stickers. Bepo, Shachi, and Penguin in particular are always seen at their captain's heels.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Angrily call Law out for ignoring them after they happily introduce themselves to Luffy, who Law drags away for a talk instead of letting them chat.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: Ikkaku in particular is very pleased at the beautiful female bodies the rest of the crew get thanks to Doc Q.
  • Enemy Mine: At Sabaody, after realizing they can't beat a Pacifista, they team up with the Kid Pirates.
  • Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting: Bepo, Shachi, and Penguin all used martial arts against a Pacifista to help out the Kid Pirates.
  • Gang of Hats: They all wear boiler suits except Law himself. Plus, all of the named members, except Jean Bart, fall into a "cold climate animals" theme with Bepo as a polar bear, Penguin as a penguin, Shachi as an Orca, and Law as either a spotted seal or snow leopard.
  • Glomp: Bepo greets Law with a big hug while crying upon his return from Dressrosa. The remaining crew members are then seen crowding around for their turn. And at the end of Stampede, Bepo can be seen cheering and hugging Law tight atop the Polar Tang.
  • Gratuitous English: All members of the Heart Pirates refer to Law as "Captain". Even in Japanese.
  • Hot-Blooded: Many of them seem to be this, acting much more emotional than their captain.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: Not quite as weird as the Straw Hats, but the Heart Pirates still are comprised of a pretty motley collection of people, including but not limited to the captain Trafalgar Law, a genocide survivor who's considered just plain creepy by most people's standards; Bepo, a kung-fu fighting polar bear Mink with low self-esteem who apologizes too easily; Penguin and Shachi, two people who used to be outcasts before they founded the crew with Law and Bepo; and Jean Bart, a former captain and slave of the Celestial Dragons.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Ikkaku is the only female member of Law's 20-member crew.
  • Submarine Pirates: The crew doesn't have a ship, but a submarine, the Polar Tang. It becomes very useful when they have to flee safely from Akainu or when they have to infiltrate Onigashima.
  • "Super Sentai" Stance: All of them (minus Law, of course) do a sentai pose when they show themselves to Luffy in Chapter 815.
  • Super Swimming Skills: Aside from Law himself (for obvious reasons), the crew specializes in aquatic combat.
  • True Companions: Easily the closest rivals to the Straw Hats in this department. The Heart Pirates all share a deep love, respect, and care for one another, especially towards their captain.
    • When Jack attacked Zou, they all unhesitatingly risked their lives to protect the island and its citizens, solely because it was the homeland of their crew member Bepo.
    • Law keeps his crew far away from Dressrosa in order to protect them. Furthermore, he does not take threats against his crew well. When Shinobu accused Bepo, Shachi, and Penguin (who've been captured) of spilling the details of the Alliance's now-leaked plans to the enemy, Law furiously insists that his crew would rather die than betray them and that she shouldn't insult them, unhesitatingly begins to abandon the plan and throw himself in harm's way to save them, and becomes deathly enraged when she states that captured alliance members should just be killed to keep them from talking.
  • Uncertain Doom: Following their defeat at the hands of the Blackbeard Pirates, everyone in the crew are left behind on Winner Island when Bepo takes Law and escapes, leaving their fates unknown.
  • Undying Loyalty: All the members are very grateful toward Law, but of note is Jean Bart, on virtue of being released from slavery, A Fate Worse Than Death.
    • When Jack attacked Zou, they all unhesitatingly risked their lives to protect the island and its citizens, solely because it was the homeland of their crew member Bepo.
    • After Shinobu accused Bepo, Shachi, and Penguin (who've been captured) of leaking their plans, Law furiously insists that his crew would rather die than betray them and that she shouldn't insult them, unhesitatingly begins to abandon the plan and throw himself in harm's way to save them, and becomes deathly enraged when she threatens to kill his crew.
  • You Are Worth Hell: In order to protect Bepo's homeland, they all willingly fought Jack the Drought and suffered the torturous effects of Caesar's poison gas.

Age: 20 (Pre-Timeskip), 22 (Post-Timeskip)

Debut: Chapter 498 (Manga), Episode 392 (Anime)

A polar bear mink and the navigator of the Heart Pirates as well as one of the four founding members. He has a bounty of 500 Berries.

  • Apologizes a Lot: Often apologizes when people bring up the fact that he is a bear, to the point where some of his crew mates assume he is weak-willed.
  • Badass Adorable: The Beary Friendly and huggable Bepo is already badass due to his status as a Mink, a race of born warriors, but he's even more badass as he can hold his own in Law's crew. He's also their navigator.
  • Beary Friendly: Bepo is a very nice polar bear Mink and since they've been friends for over ten years, frequently lets Law use him as a pillow. He also acts as a medical technician to Law during surgeries and is exceptionally fluffy and huggable.
  • Beary Funny: Bepo is a polar bear Mink and an absolute sweetheart, prone to cuddles and mild-mannered apologizing, making him a source of comic-relief.
  • Beast Man: He's a Mink, a race of humanoid animals.
  • Big Damn Heroes: When all hope seems lost against the Blackbeard Pirates, Bepo takes a drug that temporarily forces him into the Sulong state. With this, he's able to surprise and fight off the Blackbeard Pirates, including Blackbeard himself, and swim himself and Law to safety. The only cost was even Bepo admitted, this was a humiliating retreat.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Bepo's eyes are very tiny and black, making him more adorable.
  • Bruce Lee Clone: Invokes the imagery of Bruce Lee with his jumpsuit, high-pitched yelling, and hand-to-hand fighting style.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Bepo is an anthropomorphic bear, which makes him stand out when he's first shown during the Sabaody Arc. It turns out he's the first member of the Mink Tribe introduced and that the appearance of the tribe name on the slave price roster is referring to folks like him.
  • Childhood Friends: Bepo has known Law, Shachi and Penguin since they were kids (although the latter two initially bullied him) and founded the Heart Pirates together.
  • Cuddle Bug: The Mink tribe prefer to greet and show affection by nuzzling or rubbing against each other, and Bepo never hesitates to Glomp Law when they've been separated for any length of time. Law and other crew members are often seen laying up against Bepo when he's sleeping or just relaxing, too.
  • Custom Uniform: While he wears a boiler suit like the rest of Law's subordinates, his is uniquely orange.
  • Furry Reminder: Polar bears are excellent swimmers, and Bepo is no exception, being able to swim at near fishman speeds to save Law from capture by Blackbeard.
  • Logical Weakness: Being a thick-furred polar bear Mink, Bepo can not stand heat. It renders him a sweaty lump of agony who will even take it out on anyone who says he's being a baby in the hot weather.
  • Number Two: Bepo is Law's closest ally because the latter saved him from a couple of boys (Shachi and Penguin) who were bullying him.
  • Sleep Cute: Bepo is utterly adorable and even sleep talks.
  • Token Non-Human: As a Mink, he is the only non-human member of the Heart Pirates.

    Jean Bart 

Jean Bart

Voiced by: Yasunori Masutani (JP), John McCalmont (EN)

Debut: Chapter 497 (Manga), Episode 391 (Anime)

A pirate who is introduced as Saint Roswald's slave. After being freed by Law he serves under the Heart Pirates.

  • The Big Guy: He's twice as big and brutish as any of Law's other crew members, even Bepo, a polar bear Mink, and is the most physical-oriented fighter of the crew.
  • Gonk: He has a long, flat face and is intentionally given a bestial appearance.
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns: Jean Bart has thick sideburns that makes him look more feral and beast-like.
  • Human Shield: A major role of his in combat is to block incoming attacks for Law using his own large body, a task he proves very effective at, even against the likes of Van Auger.
  • I Owe You My Life: After Law frees Jean Bart from slavery, the latter joins his crew to repay the favor.
  • Made a Slave: Jean Bart is introduced as a former pirate who became St. Roswald's slave, until Law breaks his explosive necklace and frees him.
  • Primal Stance: Jean Bart is designed to look like a beast and tends to walk on all-four, made easier by his large upper body and very short legs.
  • Tattooed Crook: Fitting for a former pirate captain he has a tattoo on his forehead.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Jean Bart has large top body but short legs, emphasizing his brutish fighting style.

Shachi and Penguin

Shachi voiced by: Takahiro Fujimoto (JP), Ben Bryant (EN)

Debut: Chapter 498 (Manga), Episode 392 (Anime)

Two prominent members of the Heart Pirates who have known Law since childhood.

  • Aerith and Bob: Their names are Shachi and Penguin. The former is Japanese for "killer whale" while the latter is, well, penguin.
  • Animal Motifs:
    • Shachi is associated with killer whales, his namesake, so much so that he even wears a killer whale hat after the timeskip.
    • Penguin is associated with his namesake, although he lacks any visual clue.
  • Bully Turned Buddy: The SBS reveals that Law met Penguin, Shachi, and Bepo right after Corazon's death. Penguin and Shachi were bullying Bepo in the style of the Urashima Tarou folklore, but Law beat the two up and the four of them founded the Heart Pirates. In the present, they are Law and Bepo's crewmates.
  • Childhood Friends: Law, Bepo, Shachi, and Penguin have been friends since the day they met each other thirteen years ago and founded the Heart Pirates. This is especially notable in Law's case, who is very fond and loyal to his three friends, whereas he declared Baby 5 and Buffalo as his enemies despite the time the three of them spent together.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: Penguin's eyes are always hidden under his hat.
  • Never Bareheaded: Shachi and Penguin always wear a hat, Shachi's hat, after the Timeskip, resembles a killer whale, while Penguin's hat has his name on it.
  • Those Two Guys: Shachi and Penguin are the most prominent of the Heart Pirates beside Bepo and are rarely seen apart.

Devil Fruit: Tone-Tone Fruit

"Apapapapapapa! Check it out!"

The Captain of the On Air Pirates. Being from the Longarm Tribe in the Grand Line, Scratchmen Apoo as such has arms so long, they're double-jointed. Although Apoo's fighting style seems to be mostly defensive, as shown with his brief skirmish with another of the Supernovas, Eustass Kid, he still can't deny himself a good brawl should the opportunity present itself. He seems to be rather perceptive as when witnessing another Supernova Roronoa Zoro of the Straw Hat Pirates nearly attack a World Noble, he noted he gave off an "insane killing intent". He has eaten the Tone-Tone Fruit (Oto Oto no Mi) which allows him to morph parts of his body into the shape of musical instruments, and by playing them he can manifest different effects on his opponents such as slashes, explosions, and punches.

After the Time Skip, he strikes an alliance with Kid and Hawkins. However, it is later revealed by Hawkins that Apoo had already joined the Animal Kingdom Pirates during the Time Skip, and that their alliance was a trap set up by Apoo to force them into a confrontation with Kaido himself.

His first known bounty is 198,000,000 berries. After the Time Skip his bounty is 350,000,000 berries.

  • Animal Motifs: According to the SBS, orangutans, as like them Apoo is long-armed and gangly thanks to being of the Longarm Tribe, as well as having an affinity for tricking and infuriating others for his own amusement.
  • The Beastmaster: Apoo seems to be some kind of commander to the Numbers, the Animal Kingdom Pirates' squad of monstrous and imbecilic artificial giants. He is often directing them using his Devil Fruit as they have a fondness for music. One of them even sticks with him once the Animal Kingdom Pirate lose the raid.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He looks weird and has a rather odd Devil Fruit, but he's highly competent and no-nonsense, and his Devil Fruit has consistently been shown to be extremely dangerous.
  • Catchphrase: "Check it out!"
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Apoo has no real loyalty to anyone but himself and will change allegiances on a whim if it benefits him. He fakes an alliance with Kid, Killer, and Hawkins to take down Shanks but he's actually already working for Kaido, who he then betrays them to, then he proves willing to betray Kaido by offering an alliance to Drake to take out whoever wins Kaido's fight with Luffy, and then he ditches Drake during their team-up against CP-0 to save his own skin.
  • The Cynic: Apoo frequently expects the worst out of people, or at least suspects their actions to have some ulterior motive. When the video feed is cut off during the Paramount War, Apoo quickly (and correctly) assumes that the marines are about to do something they don't want to be made known, and insults his crewmen for chalking it up to technical difficulties. Later on, when Law evacuates Luffy and Jimbei from the battle, Apoo suggests that Law just wants to kill Luffy himself or use him as a means to an end. (The latter has, at most, only a spec of truth to it as Law's motives are more complicated and benevolent than that, and the former is decidedly not true, since he saves Luffy instead.) While fighting Kid at Onigashima, Apoo tells him that the Four Emperors cannot be defeated and that it is foolish to believe otherwise. Kid, Law, and Luffy prove him wrong when the former two defeat Big Mom while the latter brings down Kaido.
  • Did You Actually Believe...?: When confronting Kid at Onigashima, Apoo asks him whether he really thought an alliance of three rookie crews could take down Kaido and then mocks him for believing it.
    Apoo: Did you really think that us teaming up would tip the scales to the point of crushing one of the Four Emperors? Wake up to the real world! What kind of alliance between pirates is ever gonna have a happy ending?
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: He catches Kizaru by surprise and hits him multiple times with his Devil Fruit power, even slicing him in half. Then Kizaru quickly reattaches himself and defeats Apoo with a single kick.
  • Dirty Coward: Apoo may taunt his opponents in glee, but once he's in a situation he knows he can't win, he's quick to run away (albeit while trying to mock them) to save his own sorry ass. The biggest example is when he and Drake team up against CP-0; once he sees they are too much for them, Apoo leaves Drake to his fate to save his own skin.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's rather horrified when Queen shoots his enemies with bullets that contain a disease that turns the targets (and those they're in contact with) into ice demons, and eventually kills them, although considering that the tactic in question harms both friend and foe alike, his opposition is probably partly rooted in his fear that he'll end up being harmed.
  • Evil Pays Better: Apoo and Hawkins both abandoned Kid and Killer at the hands of Kaido. Hawkins chooses to take his chances on Kaido's side until the bitter end, refusing to sacrifice his pride as a pirate by crawling back to Kid with his tail tucked between his legs. Apoo, on the other hand, betrays Kaido the moment things go south, not caring one bit how it makes him look. The results? Hawkins winds up without an arm and possibly dead while Apoo makes it out of Wano completely unscathed. He's actually better off than he was at the start, having gained a new crewmate and quite a bit of cash from leaking information to the press. Crime really does pay sometimes.
  • Gang of Hats: Both he and his crew have a Chinese theme, though it's later shown that the Longarm Tribe in general is Chinese-themed.
  • Gonk: Apoo is notably more cartoonish looking compared to the average One Piece characters, and his caricaturist appearance is emphasized when he turns part of his body into musical instruments.
  • Hypno Fool: Not exactly like Jango, but some of his instruments can mesmerize people for a little while.
  • Instrument of Murder: He doesn't have one, he is one. Several, in fact. Eventually Oda provided a graphic in an SBS showing which instrument corresponded to each body part (for example, his chest act as a drum and his jaws as a cymbal).
  • Jerkass: Apoo is an opportunistic pirate willing to do anything for his own gain and doesn't care about anyone else. He never intended to be loyal to the pirate alliance and willingly set Kid and Hawkins up to face Kaido; then, when they meet up again, he gloats to Kid's face about the whole ordeal.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While he's hardly one to justify his actions in setting Kid and Hawkins up with Kaido, he does make a point saying that Kid was foolish for thinking only three rookie pirate crews would have been enough to take down an Emperor. And with Kaido showing up in front of them to pummel both Kid and Killer, this is proven to be right.
  • Karma Houdini: While he gets his ass handed to him during the raid on Onigashima (something he indirectly caused by selling out Kid and Hawkins), he manages to escape unscathed. He reappears a week later no worse for wear with a Number having apparently joined his crew and is implied to have profited off leaking the events of the raid to the press.
  • Logical Weakness: Killer reveals that Apoo's powers are dependent on the intended target hearing the sounds he weaponizes. While this does mean that those that those who hear his attacks have no way to defend against their effects, if his opponent plugs their ears, his powers won't affect them.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Downplayed. He prefers mid to long range combat due to the nature of his powers and the fact they can hit very far away, however, if the target is too distant he can't hear Apoo's attacks and can't be hit. He's also more durable than he looks and is skilled enough with tonfas to block attacks from Drake in hybrid mode AND Zoro at the same time, so he isn't completely doomed when forced into close combat.
  • Made of Iron: Despite his preference for fighting at a distance, Apoo's durability is nothing to scoff at. During the Onigashima war, Apoo gets crushed by Kid's giant metal fist, gets hit by a surprise attack from Zoro and then chewed on by Drake in full dino form but, despite all of that, he remains able to fight and command his subordinates.
  • Magic Music: The sounds from the various instruments his body becomes have different effects. The sound of his jaw-cymbal slices things while the sound of his chest-drum creates explosions.
  • The Mole: At the end of Wano's second act it's revealed that Apoo was already under the employ of Kaido when he joined up with Kid and Hawkins. His real purpose for "joining" their alliance was to deliver them to Kaido in the hopes of turning them into powerful subordinates.
  • Musical Assassin: He has a Devil Fruit that turns him into an actual human-instrument. Its power is very versatile and powerful enough that it would have killed Kizaru then and there had it not been for his own Devil Fruit, and Luffy and Zoro turn tail and run after he catches them by surprise and injures them.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Apoo's name was taken with 19th century real-life Chinese pirate Chui A-poo.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: If Apoo sees a threat, he goes straight for the kill and does not bother with small talk or weaker attacks to gauge their threat level. Admiral Kizaru would have been killed on the spot had it not been for his Logia and Apoo immediately attacks Luffy and Zoro the moment he notices they are in Onigashima.
  • Oh, Crap!: Apoo is surprised to learn that Luffy, whom he believes still imprisoned, has infiltrated Onigashima, but can only show a shocked reaction when he realizes Kid has snuck in as well and wants to get revenge on him before being smashed by a giant, metallic hand. Later, Apoo is scared shitless when Queen throws him the antidote to his Ice Demon plague bullets, which ends up attracting everyone on the floor (the heroes who need the antidote to cure their allies hit by the bullets, and Kaido's forces who want to keep it away from them) to him, forcing him to run for it.
  • One-Man Band: His Devil Fruit turns different parts of his body into instruments for his powers, giving this effect. His teeth serve as piano keys, part of his arm becomes a saxophone, and he beats his chest like a drum to name a few.
  • Opportunistic Bastard: Apoo is very conniving and backstabbing, changing his allegiances on a whim whenever it suits himself best. He pretends to join an alliance with Kid and Hawkins so all three together can bring down an Emperor, but it turns out he'd already pledged allegiance to Kaido, forcing the other two to either join as well or get the crap beaten out of them when his new boss shows up. Later on at Onigashima, while both Kaido and Big Mom are involved in major clashes, Apoo approaches X. Drake and proposes they team up to finish off whoever's left standing. When Drake refuses, Apoo immediately switches over to trying to get Yamato to join him instead in the same room.
  • Properly Paranoid: If Apoo is ever invited over by an enemy, he will destroy their ship just in case they're hiding something like a sniper.
  • Punny Name: His first name refers to his musical powers and DJ-like fighting stance.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: While Kid is pinning Apoo to a wall, raging about how he sold them out to Kaido, Apoo shoots back that he was an idiot for believing that just three Super Rookie crews would be enough to take on an Emperor, claiming pirate alliances don't have happy endings.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: This is justified by having a musical Devil Fruit. Whatever sounds effects Apoo says, it becomes true, often under the shape of an attack.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: After seeing the CP0 agents are too much for Drake and him, Apoo leaves Drake behind to save himself while sarcastically apologizing to him.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: When Kid confronts Apoo over the fact he was The Mole for Kaido in their alliance, Apoo just laughs in his face, ridiculing Kid over him believing that they could take down an Emperor, and thinking that alliances between pirates would ever have a happy ending.
  • Slasher Smile: He has a wicked and distinguishable smile thanks to his teeth shaped like piano keys.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: The only way one can justify the name "Scratchmen" is if they ended up becoming some sort of DJ.
  • Superpower Lottery: His sound powers have enough oomph behind them to deal what would've been a fatal wound to an Admiral had he not been a Logia, so he's certainly one to watch. He ends up being powerful enough that he's in the Animal Kingdom Pirates well before anyone else, without needing a Zoan-type Devil Fruit to fit the moniker. When Apoo faces off against Luffy and Zoro during the infiltration of Kaido's fortress, he manages to sock Luffy across the jaw hard enough to send him flying, give Zoro a large, painful gash across his chest, and then set off an explosion that actually knocks Luffy unconscious momentarily, all from a distance. The only reason he doesn't get more damage in is because Eustass Kid blows his cover to cream him with a giant metal fist.
  • Took a Level in Badass: His bounty goes from 198 million to 350 million in two years, overtaking Hawkins', who previously had the third highest bounty of the Supernovas.
  • Troll: He tells a terrified subordinate that you can't just run from a dangerous enemy, you have to make them mad first.
  • Unwitting Pawn: During the Battle at Onigashima, Queen fires into the crowd with his Ice Plague bullets, which consists of his own men, including Apoo, fighting the samurai and Straw Hats. The bullets turn anyone they hit into a raging ice demon that'll attack and infect others. Queen then throws Apoo the antidote and tasks him with guarding it...after he makes everyone aware Apoo has it.
  • Villainous Friendship: Apoo is an underhanded, extremely cunning man, and during the party at Onigashima he gets along well with Queen in the Animal Kingdom Pirates, with Queen referring to him as his "brother" and MC-ing the Golden Festival with Apoo as his DJ. Then Queen forces him into his sadistic game of Ice Tag and Apoo grows to hate him. Since Apoo is not extremely loyal to Kaido, and is quick to betray him during the Onigashima war, it's likely that their friendship was skin-deep at best.
  • Wild Card: Thanks to a massive case of Chronic Backstabbing Disorder, Apoo's allegiances change on a whim and the only thing a person can count on him to do is to act in his own self-interest. Although he's part of Kaido's crew, during the Onigashima War Apoo tries to convince Drake (who he was just fighting) to team up with him and attack whoever wins the war while they're weakened. After Drake refuses his offer, he tries to turn Yamato to his side, and then teams up with Drake anyway after CP-0 attacks him for trying to take pictures of them to sell to Morgans. Unsurprisingly, once he realizes the CP-0 agents aren't playing around, he abandons Drake and makes a break for it.
  • Your Mind Makes It Real: His power depends on his target actually hearing it, thus registering it in their mind and manifesting damage. Covering one's ears to not hear his attacks completely protects one against his attacks. Out of ears, out of mind, no damage.

Bonney Pirates

    In General 
The crew of Jewelry Bonney.
  • Connected All Along: As it turns out, all of them are longtime friends of Kuma who eventually formed an Intergenerational Friendship with his daughter Bonney.
  • Gang of Hats: They have a cowboy theme and all wear undersized clothing. Many also wear the same frilly boots Bonney does.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Despite being one of the more benign pirate crews in the series, they have a reputation of attacking children and senior citizens due to Bonney using her powers on her opponents.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Bonney. While Bonney was something of an outcast among the other kids at Sorbet, she befriended several of Kuma's adult friends (alongside Connie and Bulldog) who later set out to sea with her to find Kuma.
  • Theme Naming: The three named members of the crew—Gyogyo, Tots, and Potato—are named around food.
  • Uncertain Doom: It's unknown what happened to the Bonney Pirates after being captured by Admiral Akainu. Considering that Bonney is on her own on Egghead and that she and her crew were extremely close, it's heavily implied that the Bonney Pirates are either dead or in Navy custody.

Devil Fruit: Age-Age Fruit

The captain of the Bonney Pirates and only female Supernova, Bonney has one of the more stereotypical views on what a pirate should be like in the series, which is a completely amoral person who destroys all in their way and looks out only for themselves. She has eaten the Age-Age Fruit (Toshi Toshi no Mi) that allows her to change her own age as well as others. She uses it as a disguise on herself and makes her opponents either too young or too old to fight her. Interestingly, the clothes of the Marines she changes into children don't change to fit their smaller forms while her clothes do, implying that skintight Stripperific outfit is so her clothes always fit her when she transforms. Other than that, she has also demonstrated a powerful kick to Blackbeard's face that was enough to make him bleed, suggesting a good amount of physical strength (a common trait for the strongest of the One Piece world).

She's a very rude and unpleasant woman with a monstrous appetite and holds deep grudges for people who irritate her. As a captain, she shows conflicting displays of competence. She saves herself, her crew, Zoro, and the entire Sabaody archipelago (initially, at least) by immediately restraining Zoro when he's about to kill a World Noble, which would have certainly caused nothing short of a Marine-issued Buster Call. However, she has been shown to cause time delays for her crew with her binge eating, even staying at a restaurant to eat for a while despite knowing that Admiral Kizaru was coming.

Bonney is hit especially hard by the events of Marineford, and unfortunately becomes caught up in their aftermath. However, two years later, she has somehow gotten out of that hairy situation, but is now apparently on her own, fending for herself and trying to hide. Eventually, her travels take her to an infiltration mission of the holy land of Mariejois, where she is mortified to find an old friend in a deplorable state.

She has a bounty of 320,000,000 berries.note 

  • Absurd Phobia: She can kick Blackbeard upside the face, debilitate entire divisions of marines, and run a sword through one of the Five Elder Stars. And yet, she's afraid of small bugs.
  • Action Girl: Whil it takes a while for her combat abilities to show, Bonney is a very capable fighter, especially thanks to her Devil Fruit power which allows her to turn an opponent into an inoffensive baby or old man by simply touching them.
  • Alliterative Family: Downplayed, but she and her mother's name are both phonetically similar: Bonney/Ginny.
  • Animal Motifs: According to the SBS, Bonney's motif is the deer. Bonney is swift and agile, and while Bonney is a fighter unlike how deer are commonly portrayed, her ability allows her to take on the appearance of someone much more harmless like a child or an old woman. Deer are also symbols of innocence and in Christianity, of Christ himself, and Bonney is the daughter of Bartholomew Kuma, a character with numerous Christian motifs who has chosen to sacrifice his life and dignity for others. Furthermore, as a young child with the ability to assume an adult form, she's actually a lot more innocent and naive than she appears.
  • Arch-Enemy: Initially, she designates Vegapunk as her greatest enemy due to his part in the robotization of her father Kuma. However, the Egghead arc reveals her true Arch-Enemy is the man who forced him to do it: Saint Jaygarcia Saturn. Every single bad thing that has ever happened to Bonney in her entire life, including the deaths of both her parents, is Saturn's fault. Naturally, when Bonney learns of this during her jaunt through her father's memories and right after meets Saturn for the first time, she immediately tries to kill him.
  • Arc Hero: Alongside Vegapunk, she is the Straw Hat's main ally during Egghead.
  • Awful Truth: Zigzagged. Vegapunk has a very good reason for trying to keep Bonney away from Kuma's memories. Not only was Kuma's life just a long line of horrible tragedy after horrible tragedy, his past reveals to her that she is a Child by Rape who, throughout her childhood, was secretly dying from the same terminal illness that took the life of her mother, the woman her father loved. A disease that, to save her from, caused her father to submit himself to the authority of the organization he had been fighting his entire life in order to make sure she was cured. And she's finding this out as a twelve year old child. On the other hand Bonney looking through Kuma's memories also allows her to see how much he loved her, including all of the letters he sent her that Alpha stopped her from reading.
  • Baby Of The Bunch: The Eleven Supernovas all range from their late teens to their forties. Bonney achieved her bounty and reached the Red Line when she's ten! Kuma's flashback shows that she mastered her powers and became a pirate at the age of nine.
  • Badass Adorable: She's a lively 10-12 year old girl with an incredibly powerful Devil Fruit and is among the "Worst Generation" of pirates that have shaken the world.
  • Balloon Belly: She lives up to her name of "Glutton" in Egghead when she stuffs herself to the brim with food alongside Luffy and Chopper, which makes her fat for a few panels afterwards...she's also the third woman in the franchise that this trope happens to and the first to ever have this effect after overeating actually in the manga to boot.
  • Big Damn Reunion: After searching for him for so long she finally reunites with her father Kuma, during the Egghead arc and she manages to exchange a few heartwarming words with him, right before Kuma succumbs to a Heroic RRoD.
  • Big Eater: As her title "Glutton" indicates, she loves eating. In her first appearance she voraciously devours an entire feast all by herself, making so much noise she annoys Bege nearby. And whenever shown with her crew, they usually have some food on hand for her to snack on. After the timeskip, she's on her own and is often shown stealing food. Her mother, Ginny, was likewise fond of eating, due to her past as an underfed slave.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: She inherited Ginny's gung-ho attitude and would pick fights with other kids when she was younger and with Gyogyo when he came to visit. The trait is still prevalent at twelve years old... in her adult body by the present day.
  • Break the Cutie: The crass and selfish pirate of the present is a far cry from the sweet little girl from Kuma's flashbacks. Her father disappearing has done lasting damage on the poor girl. And things go From Bad to Worse for her during the Egghead arc.
  • Broken Tears: She cries out of sadness at the end of Kuma's backstory, after she absorbed his memories and finally found out the extent of her father's love and the ultimate sacrifice he made in order to save her life.
  • The Bus Came Back: After the Paramount War, she's captured by Blackbeard and then by Akainu, but makes some sporadic appearances after the time-skip on various islands and later at Mariejois during the Reverie. However, she later re-enters the main story as a Guest-Star Party Member of the Straw Hats during the Egghead arc.
  • Cheerful Child: She is especially cheerful and happy when she is around Kuma. Even her mysterious disease and her being confined because of it doesn't seem to bring her spirits down. And then the world decides to tear all that apart.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: After the Paramount War, it's implied that Jewelry Bonney has some kind of importance to the World Government as Admiral Akainu admits that he got scared when he found out that she escaped them. This plot point doesn't come up again until the Egghead arc—nearly 500 chapters and over a decade of serialization later.
  • Child by Rape: Heavily implied. Ginny, her mother, was forced in marriage to a Celestial Dragon, and Bonney was born two years after that. Given how Celestial Dragons tend to treat their wives, it's highly unlikely any contact with him was consensual.
  • Child Prodigy: As it turns out, Bonney began pirating at ten years old, which makes her explosive career as a rookie pirate all the more notable. She's even found some impressive uses for her Devil Fruit powers, though it helps that they lend themselves well to the strong imagination of a child.
  • Close-Range Combatant: Her Devil Fruit generally necessitates having to touch her opponent, and she's more than strong enough to trade punches and kicks if need be. Using Distorted Future is a whole other story.
  • Color Motif: Her pink hair is the most obvious use of pink/magenta, but her Devil Fruit also emits a pink aura when she uses it, as does the "jewelry" that spawns.
  • Connected All Along: Turns out Bonney knows Bartholomew Kuma from way back when he was a king in the South Blue — not only that, he is actually her (adoptive) father.
  • Cry into Chest: After Kuma saves her from Saint Saturn and punches the elder out, she cries into Kuma's chest, happy that she finally gets to be with her father again.
  • Cute Bruiser: She's not afraid to scrap if need be, all while rocking it with her bubblegum-pink hair, makeup, and form-fitting attire.
  • Daddy's Girl: She's nothing but furious by Kuma's sorry state at the hands of the World Government, stops Luffy in the Egghead arc from hurting a Pacifista in Kuma's likeness with tears in her eyes. Flashbacks show Kuma really was a wonderful father who gave her a happy childhood, and since Bonney is actually a 12-year old child, she's understandably very attached to the only positive parental figure she's ever known.
  • Death by Irony: Lampshaded. Saturn orders the Pacifista to murder Bonney, thinking it's entirely appropriate for her to get killed by the Clone Army modelled as the image of her father since Kuma gave up his life to save her. Fortunately, Vegapunk programmed the Pacifista to obey Bonney, allowing the girl to order them to stop.
  • Defiant Captive: When Blackbeard had her in his clutches, she remained as aggressive and unyielding as ever, rejecting Blackbeard's offer to become his woman just as violently as you'd expect from her.
  • Diving Save: Zoro dodges the World Noble's gunshot, but Bonney saves him from attacking the World Noble by diving onto him and stopping his attack. This only delays the onslaught as Admiral Kizaru arrives anyway, after Luffy later punches that same guy.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After being confined and abused by Alpha for so long, when the latter catches up to her during her escape, she uses "Distorted Future" to give herself the "Nika-Like" power to enlarge her fist similar to Luffy's Gear Three, caving Alpha's face in.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: She has a piercing below her right eye. It's in the exact same area where her Sapphire Scales once were. She deliberately places it there, so that Kuma recognizes her when she meets him, since the "Jewelry" on her face is now gone.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • Her connection to Kuma is hinted at certain points:
      • During the Paramount War, Bonney cries after the feedback was cut. While it's implied to be about Whitebeard's death, it's actually because she saw the Pacifistas that all resemble her father Kuma.
      • After the War, she proclaims "it's all his fault" and sets sail to the New World. It seems she's going after Blackbeard for revenge against Whitebeard, but it turns out she really meant Vegapunk, the man who modified her father into an emotionless cyborg, and wants him to pay.
    • There are multiple hints to her true age throughout her appearances:
      • At the start of the Egghead arc, Bonney is in her child form after having been dropped in the ocean from her ship being destroyed by Egghead's defences. Since the ocean temporarily negated her Devil Fruit, she reverted back to her actual age and appearance.
      • Some characters refer to her as "just a little girl" or similar when they meet or mention her. While it's easy to dismiss as simply because they are at least 30 years older than her, it's actually because she's 12 years old during the Egghead arc.
      • Sanji's usual antics are massively toned down with her, showing none of his usual pervertedness (as well as the lack of heart eyes) and being much more protective instead, whereas he is his usual self towards Stussy and Lilith. Having him lust after an explicitely pre-teen girl was probably not something Oda wanted.
      • She has a tendency to refer to Kuma in a very childish way, such as stopping Luffy attacking a Pacificia and begging him not to hurt her "daddy". The usage gets more context when it becomes clear she's much younger emotionally and mentally than her Devil Fruit makes her seem.
  • Fountain of Youth: One of the abilities granted by her Devil Fruit is to make everyone, herself included, younger. It's only temporary, however, as her powers do not last forever on living things. She uses it to disguise herself as a child or turn enemies into helpless babies. However, every time she becomes a child, she's actually assuming her true age and height.
  • Friendly Enemy: Despite technically being the Straw Hats' enemy, she actually gets along very well with the crew during the Egghead arc. There's also the fact that Luffy is the incarnation of the same mythological Nika figure that Kuma would regale her with tales of during her younger years.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Much like Law, Kid, and Bege in this regard, she ends up throwing her lot in with the Straw Hats shortly before arriving at Egghead, and is firmly on their side in the ensuing chaos that erupts from there.
  • Happily Adopted: Kuma might not be her father by blood, but Bonney thinks the world of him and had a very happy childhood with him. Kuma went to great lengths to cure her Sapphire Scales and was more than happy to sacrifice his own free will and mind in exchange for her treatment. Most of all, the last time he saw her as himself, he told her he was happy she was born, which shows that he felt no contempt for her being a Child by Rape, but simply loved her as Ginny's daughter, regarding her as the best thing to have ever happened to him in his long, tragic life.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Being able to manipulate age doesn't sound like a particularly powerful ability, especially as it doesn't indefinitely affect living things. However, her power isn't so much "aging" things as it is making things take on forms that they either did exist as in the past or could exist as in the future. Which is to say, she can make anything—living or nonliving—take on the form of any possible future version of itself.
  • Hidden Depths: Beneath the rude, gluttonous and perpetually belligerent woman the world sees is a young girl who is horribly distraught over the terrible fate that befell her father and is desperate for some kind of closure over his death.
  • Holy Burns Evil: Alluded to; because of her Sapphire Scales illness that forced her to remain indoors, she was believed to be a vampire by local kids, one of whom threatens her with a cross on that grounds. Naturally, it doesn't work.
  • Hulking Out: Using her "Distorted Future" ability, she's able to turn her physical form into a muscular older version of herself.
  • Humanizing Tears:
    • For someone with such a rude personality, she is the only one of the Supernovas who breaks down in tears after the Paramount War, crying at the news of Kuma being turned into a cyborg.
    • She cries when she sees how horribly abused Kuma has been, but these tears are fueled by anger more than grief and sadness.
  • I Never Got Any Letters: While traveling the world, Kuma sent an enormous amount of letters to Bonney. Sadly, none of them reached their destination, since they were intercepted and destroyed by Alpha, Bonney's "caretaker". However, Bonney later looks through Kuma's memories, meaning that she watches him write out each of the letters that never made it to her.
  • Identical Stranger: When she ages herself into an old woman, she becomes identical to Connie, the Queen Dowager of the Sorbet Kingdom, to the point that several characters mistake one for the other multiple times. This is thanks to her devil fruit powers, which allow her to change herself into any potential future version of herself there is, such as one where she grows up into an old woman who resembles Connie. This ability eventually allows her to switch places with Connie and escape the World Government's clutches in order to become a pirate.
  • Ignorance Is Bliss:
    • Played with, but subverted. Kuma refused to let Bonney find out anything about what he was going through on her behalf, obviously because he didn't want Bonney to blame herself for his death. Unbeknownst to Kuma, however, none of his letters ever reached her. From Bonney's perspective, her father completely disappeared and lost all contact with her, prompting her to set out to sea to reunite with him. While she's (completely understandably) destroyed upon seeing the depths of Kuma's horrible life, Bonney is able to smile the next day, making it clear that finding out Kuma's side of the story was able to give her the closure that she was so desperately looking for.
    • It's later played straight with her Devil Fruit. Saturn outlines the specifics of Bonney's own power to her, explaining that it's based on her self-perception of reality and what she truly believes is possible. Due to a combination of her young true age and naiveté, Bonney can imagine hundreds of possible futures, even those that don't actually exist, but realising this in turn means she can't access those possibilities anymore. As such, Saturn's Breaking Speech about how Bonney's Nika-ish future form has lost its strength is proof she no longer truly believes in Nika results in Bonney getting Depowered, only for Bonney to see Luffy as Nika and regain hope again..
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: Part of her power is fueled by her imagination, and she can use her Distorted Future ability to give herself new abilities as long as she can imagine them. Since the world of One Piece has all sorts of nonsensical things in it, virtually nothing Bonney can imagine is beyond the realm of possibility. This ranges from the mundane like giving herself bodybuilder-like proportions, to supernatural feats like a "Nika-like future" where she can enlarge and stretch her fist like Luffy can, based on her dad's stories of Nika.
  • Improbable Age: She's revealed in Egghead to be 12. This means she started pirating and managed to obtain a bounty of 140,000,000 beri at the age of ten!.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Despite or perhaps because she was an outcast amongst her peers, every meaningful friendship she's ever had has been with people who are significantly older than her, be it Queen Dowager Connie, Vegapunk, or even Luffy. Chopper is likely the youngest friend she's ever had and even he's a good 5 years older than her.
  • Irony: Bonney adamantly refuses to fight or let anybody else fight a Pacifista around her due to them being clone soldiers made in the image of her beloved father, even interfering with Luffy's attempts to defend himself from one acting as security on Egghead. However, Vegapunk, aware that the World Government, and especially the Five Elders, would be cruel and callous enough to order her to be killed by one, secretly installed Bonney as the head of the hierarchy in their command structure, with her orders able to override even direct commands from Saint Saturn himself. This means that Bonney is the best person to bring into combat against the Killer Robot enforcers.
  • Jabba Table Manners: True to her Red Baron name, Bonney shovels food down her throat and has a bad attitude to match her poor manners, much to Capone Bege's chagrin.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While she's letting her anger get the better of her, she's well within the right to be so pissed off at Vegapunk for what he did to her father, especially since he failed to see that Bonney would be out for blood after witnessing Kuma suffer badly from the slave abuse by the World Nobles during her brief visit to Mary Geoise.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While Bonney can be rude and a bit of a jerk at times, Bonney really is a good person at her core. This is probably best seen by the creed she and her crew live by.
    "Here are the ironclad laws of piratey behavior! Steal whatever you want! (From bad guys,) Don't help other people! (Unless they need it.)"
  • The Kid with the Remote Control: Vegapunk has granted her supreme authority over all Kuma-shaped Pacifistas, which allows her to even override Saint Saturn's authority. Justified in that Vegapunk knew there was always a possibility a Pacifista could be ordered to kill Bonney and he wanted to prevent Bonney being killed by the very image of the selfless father who gave up his life to save her.
    Vegapunk: Even if the entire world should be your enemy... Understand this Bonney...Kuma will always be on your side.
  • The Lad-ette: Bonney is rude, aggressive, vulgar, and an exceptionally voracious eater. When she meets the Straw Hats at Egghead, the first people she hits things off with are Luffy and Chopper.
  • Like Parent, Like Child: Her scrappy attitude and huge appetite are traits she inherited from her mother, which Kuma quickly points out.
  • Like Parent, Unlike Child: She is the daughter of Bartholomew Kuma, who is an exceptionally reserved, calm, and stoic man. Bonney, on the other hand, is aggressive, rude, loud, and generally belligerent. Subverted because they aren’t blood related, but thankfully played straighter with the kind of being her blood-father is heavily implied to be.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Bonney is the only reason Kuma was able to keep on living after the death of her mother Ginny, who had been the love of his life. Ginny's capture and re-enslavement by the Celestial Dragons had already made Kuma grimmer, more brutal and more reckless during his missions as a Revolutionary, and her death would've driven him over the Despair Event Horizon had he not learned of Bonney's existence and decided to adopt and raise her in Ginny's memory. In the visualization of Kuma's journey during the last moments of his life in Chapter 1102, this is represented by the jagged path Kuma struggled to travel on after Ginny's loss, only for the path to smooth out after Bonney's adoption, showing she is the reason he regained the will to live.
  • Logical Weakness:
    • Her Imagination-Based Superpower is based on her imagining several possible futures for herself, a person or an object and applying them. While this is indeed powerful, if what she imagines differs from reality the effect of her powers is very weak. Consequently, her power gets weaker as she grows older, becomes more certain of the world and the possibilities in her mind become more limited. Furthermore, she is very susceptible to Break Them by Talking by an enemy, as breaking her spirit also means limiting her imagination.
    • Her power involves manipulating the age of a target. Against somebody who seems incapable of ageing at all, like Saint Saturn, the power cannot affect them.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: A familial example; she loves her father Kuma very much and is very emotional around a Pacifista that resembles him. To that end she kicks Luffy, refusing to let him harm it in spite of the fact she knows that's not her father. Had Luffy not intervened when he did, she would have been seriously hurt if not killed by the Pacifista. To be fair, she's actually only 12 years old, and thus as impulsive and emotion-driven as one.
  • Made of Iron: Despite having a Paramecia Devil Fruit, Bonney has a large degree of durability. She takes a direct kick from Admiral Kizaru, which flies her into the Frontier Dome on Egghead at max strength and is able to continue fighting without much trouble.
  • Magic Pants: Subverted; Most Devil Fruits allow users' clothes to stretch and shrink as they transform (Luffy changing gears and Chopper shifting forms as common examples). Bonney's power meanwhile doesn't affect clothing, so she wears skimpy clothing to make sure that it will always fit her.
  • The Magic Touch: To use her Devil Fruit, Bonney either needs to touch the target herself or imbue her power into an object like a bullet.
  • Makeover Fail: The distinct way she wears lipstick in a completely unconventional way, drawing a small kiss-mark around her lips is because she wants to appear as an adult woman, but she makes the mistake of getting makeup directions from Gyogyo who clearly doesn’t have the slightest idea how to properly put lipstick on.
  • Make Them Rot: On Egghead, Bonney destroys a lock by aging it so far that it's become nothing but dust. Her NDE ("Near-Death Experience") technique allows her to do this on a person; however, the experience, though extremely traumatizing, is non-lethal because her powers do not last indefinitely on living things, causing them to snap back from the moment of death instantly.
  • Meaningful Name: Kuma used to call the Sapphire Scales formed on her face "Jewelry" in order to make the poor sick girl feel better, originating her last name.
  • Modest Royalty: Bonney was, by technicality, the crown princess of Sorbet Kingdom for a period of time after her father was appointed the new king. However, she never actually enjoyed any of the perks that came with the title like living in the palace due to a combination of her Sapphire Scales disease making it a health risk and Kuma's lack of interest or ability as serving as anything more than a figurehead.
  • Mood-Swinger: She can go from cursing somebody out in anger to crying about the cruelty of the world to cooly manipulating a situation in a matter of moments.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's a curvaceous lady whose body gets shown off a lot. She dresses skimpy on a normal day but especially so in Egghead where Bonney's no longer wearing pants and her outfit leaves her entire legs exposed.
  • Multiple-Choice Future: Her ability doesn't just change one's age, but turns their body into what could happen to them getting older, with the limit being the user's imagination.
  • Mysterious Past: Bonney is perhaps the most enigmatic of the Supernovas; it's heavily implied post-Marineford that she's somehow important to the World Government and it's indicated during the Reverie that she has an unclear but definitely extant connection to Bartholomew Kuma. When she comes back into the story during the Egghead arc, her past and relationship with Kuma become less ambiguous.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Bonney's name was taken from the 18th century Irish woman Anne Bonny, a noble turned pirate who operated in the Caribbean.
  • Necessary Drawback: What keeps the Age-Age Fruit from being overpowered is that any effects on living targets are temporary, meaning Bonney can't permanently incapacitate, or kill for that matter, whoever she affects. This can be seen when she ages a Marine to the point of death, only for it to immediately reverse (granted leaving the marine extremely traumatized). It also makes any buffs she grants with Distortion Future only last for that fight.
  • Never Gets Fat: She eats like crazy and she still retains her slim figure! She even proves capable of the same Balloon Belly effect as Luffy and Chopper when they binge out on a massive stash of food at Egghead, and swiftly returns to her slim appearance panels afterwards.
  • Never Got to Say Goodbye: The last time Bonney had any form of contact with her father, he promised her that he'd only gone for a year or so but would send her lots of letters and would take her to all the places they talked about as soon as he got back. Bonney was completely kept in the dark about everything her father was going through, made all the more tragic by the fact that Alpha made sure to destroy every single one of Kuma's letters before they could reach Bonney. Witnessing a roboticized Kuma during the Paramount War was the first time she had seen or heard from him in years. It's really not hard to see why the poor girl was so hell-bent on getting revenge on Vegapunk.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: One day when running around exercising in Kuma's church whilst trying to prepare herself for a hard life at sea, Bonney just suddenly showcased her aging abilities, accidentally turning into her adult self when thinking about the kind of strong adult she wanted to grow into. Despite not having obviously eaten a Devil Fruit, the powers came in handy for her escape from Alpha, the CP 8 agent being unaware Bonney had abilities and Connie having intentionally concealed this from the Government just in case. It's later revealed that Bonney always had the powers from infancy, with Saint Saturn having used her as a test subject to see if she could gain Devil Fruit powers through an extract of the fruit even if she couldn't eat solid food. Her "Distorted Future" ability also gives Bonney new and different abilities based on her needs as she imagines a Future self who possesses the skills or techniques required.
  • No-Sell: As a child, Bonney is believed to be a vampire because of her illness that causes her to react poorly to sunlight. When another child tries to threaten her with a cross on the grounds that Holy Burns Evil, it doesn't affect her in the slightest, which she points out... along with the fact that they should know this, because she's living in a church.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: While Bonney isn't a vampire, from early childhood the Sapphire Scales disease that she inherited from Ginny forced her to remain indoors and out of all forms of natural light, sunlight or moonlight, in order to avoid aggravating her condition. This led to her gaining the moniker of "Vampire" by the local kids.
  • Out of Time, Out of Mind: She is understandably upset upon learning the full tragedy of her father's life, but the sheer amount of time spent in his head, a child experiencing every moment of a forty-five-year-old man's life over a single night, had little other effect on her.
  • Overnight Age-Up: Thanks to the Age Age Fruit, as the name would imply, she has the power to manipulate ages, both her own and those around her. Though contrary to the fruit's name, she doesn't so much age things as she makes them take on either a past or future state. Because the future is still undetermined, Bonney can make things take on any future form of themselves, no matter how impossible, as showcased by giving herself a different devil fruit power. The major limiting factor in what Bonney can do, however, is that she herself needs to believe that said future state is possible.
  • Personality Powers: Bonney has the power to change the age of objects and people at will. This directly relates to how she was forced to prematurely "grow up" and act as an adult at the age of ten. Tragically, this is a known effect of real-life childhood trauma where children who had gone through traumatic experiences undergo accelerated mental development.
  • Pirate Girl: Bonney looks more like a traditional female pirate and is named after a famous real life pirate woman.
  • Really 17 Years Old: She hides her real age to evade capture by the World Government, hiding behind the appearance of an attractive young woman. In truth, she's only twelve.
  • The Reveal:
    • She knows Bartholomew Kuma and what he was like as a king before the World Government changed him into a Pacifista. It is later revealed that she doesn't just know Kuma, but that she is his daughter.
    • She's actually 10/12 years-old, meaning her adult appearance is just a form she chooses to assume.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Bonney is bent on getting revenge on Vegapunk for what he did to her father. To that end, dead-set on either forcing Vegapunk to restore Kuma to normal or killing him in revenge. Despite her initial anger, she lets Vegapunk off the hook once she discovers that Kuma left his memories behind with the scientist before he died. However, these memories then make her transfer her grudge to Saint Saturn instead, whom is much less tolerant of her attempts to avenge her father.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: When Admiral Kizaru comes knocking at Sabaody, she understands that it's no use to fight him and flees.
  • Searching for the Lost Relative: The reason she became a pirate was to search, find and reconnect with Kuma, her father. She does eventually find him, but he is no longer the loving father she used to know.
  • Sentimental Homemade Toy: She draws a cute picture of Kuma's face. Kuma takes her painting and uses it as his Jolly Roger.
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: She manages to escape the purge in Sabaody only to be defeated by Blackbeard and end up chained in front of Akainu, instead of entering the New World right away. However, she has escaped once more and reached Mariejois.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Bonney doesn't seem to care being shirtless in front of Luffy, Chopper and Jimbei.
  • Shapeshifter Default Form: Bonney can be any age she chooses, but spends most of her time as a young adult. When she's rescued from sea by the Straw Hats, she's reverted to her true age, revealing her to be only 12.
  • Shapeshifting Excludes Clothing: Whether it's her own or her victims', her Devil Fruit powers don't affect clothes, unlike most other Fruits. Hence her Stripperific outfit, which lets her wear them whenever she assumes a younger form.
  • Signature Headgear: She wears a very distinct green Furażerka hat with green-white lining it was handed over to her by Connie in order to impersonate her, when she escaped the prison the World Government put her in.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Bonney is the only female Supernova.
  • Stealth Expert: Bonney escaped government custody at least twice, despite them being particularly concerned about the possibility of her roaming free, and her Devil Fruit allows her to change her age, making her difficult to recognize. During her sporadic appearances after the time-skip, Bonney is often shown aged back to a child. Not only that, but she infiltrates Mariejois by herself, in the middle of Reverie by taking the identity of the Queen Dowager of Sorbet Kingdom.
  • Story-Breaker Power:
    • Bonney's Devil Fruit is extremely powerful as she just needs to touch someone once to temporarily turn them into an infant or a geriatric. That's almost assuredly the end of the fight. It has also been shown to make her one of the best infiltrators in the One Piece world, on par with Shilew, Bentham, and Rocinante, as she can just freely shift her age and thereby appearance and slip away, and if someone does somehow wise up, she can simply ageshift them and leave them helpless. She's also shown to be able to imbue her Near Death Experience into bullets to use it on enemies at a distance, putting them into a state of shock which can oftentimes knock them out.
    • Her "Distorted Future" ability expand the possible uses to her power. Whenever she ages herself up, she doesn't merely "get older", she's tapping into a possible future. Because the future has near-infinite possibilities for a young child, Bonney can effectively age herself into whatever future she can think of, not just an older version of her current self. This includes giving herself a different devil fruit power, and acquiring a degree of expertise with said power as she's retroactively spent years mastering it. In contrast to Luffy's "blowing air into my thumb" workaround to use Gear Three, Bonney tapping into "a Nika-Like future" has her inflate her arm instantly, similar to Gear Five. This means she can instantly age herself into any version of herself that has the skills or powers needed for her situation. Suddenly, it makes a lot more sense that a 12-year old child could become a Supernova with this power.
  • Stripperific: Justified in that because her ability doesn't provide Magic Pants whenever she changes her age, she needs something that will be able to fit her at every age and size, including that of a child.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Bonney's adult form bears a very strong resemblance to her deceased mother, Ginny. To the point that when she used it for the first time after eating her devil fruit, her father Kuma and his and Ginny's two closest friends outright mistook her for her mother at first.
  • Stronger with Age: Inverted. Bonney's fruit allows her to instantly self-invoke this with Distorted Future, allowing her to age herself into a possible future wherein she has the skills and powers needed to resolve her current problems. However, Saturn reveals to her that this is dependant on both her young age giving her hundreds of possible futures and Bonney's own naiveté about what she can and cannot do. Thus, as Bonney grows up mentally and physically, her devil Fruit actually gets weaker as the possibilities get less and less.
  • Super Mode: Distorted Future allows Bonney to age herself into a potential future version of herself, and it's seemingly only limited by her ability to imagine herself that way. This naturally gives her a huge power boost over her normal self, as she can make herself extremely strong in a pinch. She can even give herself other Devil Fruit powers, so long as she can imagine their effects.
  • Swiss-Army Superpower: The Age-Age Fruit is incredibly versatile thanks to the broad ability to age things; Bonney can incapacitate or empower herself and others at will, especially by tapping into "possible futures" for substantial power boosts; destroy or restore objects with a touch, disguise herself as a child or senior, and Mind Rape enemies by replicating a near-death experience.
  • Tastes Like Friendship: She quickly starts hitting it off with Luffy and Chopper when the three of them stuff their faces together.
  • Tears of Joy:
    • Bonney is so happy that she bursts into tears when she finally reunites with Kuma and tells him everything that she learned about him and her mother by witnessing his memories.
    • She begins to tear up when she sees Luffy's Gear Five form in full for the first time and learns from Vegapunk that Luffy is the next incarnation of Sun God Nika, vindicating her father's beliefs and confirming that all his sacrifices were not in vain.
  • There Is No Cure: At her birth, Bonney contracts the "Sapphire Scales" disease that her mother originally had. Kuma is informed that there is no cure, and that she will be dead by the time she is ten. However, Kuma manages to cure her by making a Deal with the Devil with the World Government in order to use a revolutionary new stem cell cure on her, in exchange for him being the progenitor of their Pacifistas.
  • This Is Unforgivable!:
    • When Akainu and the Marines capture her, she tells them that she can't forgive what they did. The Egghead Arc expands on her conversation with Akainu, and reveals that she is enraged by her adoptive father Kuma losing his free will and becoming the World Government's mindless slave.
    • At the Reverie, Bonney is angered upon seeing Kuma's sorry state as a slave and she goes to Egghead to get her revenge on Vegapunk for having done this to Kuma, who is revealed to be her father.
  • Twin Switch: She ages herself up to look like Queen Dowager Connie and switches clothes with her in order to slip through the World Goverment's security and reach her escape ship. Connie stays behind and wears Bonney's clothes to look like her, but sadly she looks nothing like a young Bonney and Alpha is quick to see through the switch.
  • Time Master: Bonney has the power to control the age of objects and people, but because the "future" state of the universe is not set in stone, she can make things turn into any possible future version of itself. As such, it seems her power is less affecting physical age and more some form of time manipulation. This is referenced by the specific word used in her fruit, as it can alternately be read as 'Year-Year Fruit.'
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She seems to especially like pizza, often being seen eating it, and the SBS for Volume 81 confirmed her favorite food is pizza margherita. This takes a deep significance when, during Kuma's flashback, the two most significant moments in her life, getting cured while spending some final time with Kuma and Connie organising her escape, involved her eating pizza.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Despite being arrested at the end of the Post War Arc, she somehow escaped from Marine Headquarters, being seen two years later in two episodes during the Dressrosa Arc, both times eating pizza and reading a newspaper in some cold and snowy location.
  • Vague Age: According to Oda, her age of 24 is merely an estimation. Thanks to her powers, no one is really sure just what age Bonney is. Given the fact that her father is in his late 40s, it's likely an accurate estimate. During the Egghead arc it's revealed that she's actually twelve (ten prior to the timeskip).
  • Variant Power Copying: Her "Distorted Future" technique allows her to age herself to an infinite number of possible future forms; this grants her the potential to use other Devil Fruit abilities, provided she can imagine what it's like. Using Kuma's description of the Sun God Nika as a basis, a young Bonney imagines a "Nika-Like Future" and is able to duplicate the Gum-Gum Fruit's Rubber Man abilities, striking Alpha with a smaller version of Luffy's Gear Three technique.
  • Walking Spoiler: Everything revealed about her in the Egghead Arc can make discussion about her difficult due to sheer volume of info and how it recontextualizes Bonney.
  • Womanchild: Bonney often acts like a spoiled brat, being rude, venal, crass, and wildly emotional. Subverted when it's revealed that she's actually ten/twelve years old, meaning she acts appropriately for her age.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: For all her toughness, Bonney is deathly afraid of bugs; seeing a beetle is enough to make her foam at the mouth in shock, and when her laser sword attracts an entire swarm, she curls herself in fear.
  • Younger Than They Look: Appears to be in her early twenties most of the time, including in her very first appearance, but in truth she's only twelve years old.
  • You Killed My Father: Bonney is bent on finding answers as to why Vegapunk turned her father Kuma into a mindless husk, and killing him if she doesn't like what she hears. Once she discovers that Kuma used his Devil Fruit to remove his own memories prior to his death, Bonney stops hounding Vegapunk. After learning of how awful her father's life truly was, Bonney redirects her anger onto Saint Saturn. Unlike with Vegapunk, however, Bonney's anger here is entirely justified.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Kuma is informed by her doctor that she will die by the time she is ten. Having eavesdropped on her conversation she thinks that she is going to get cured by the time she is ten and Kuma is too heartbroken and shocked to correct her. She is cured by Doctor Vegapunk after Kuma makes a Deal with the Devil with the World Government in order to use a revolutionary procedure on her in exchange for becoming the progenitor of the Pacifista clone army. After six months of treatment, she is deemed cured, though she still has to stay out of sunlight for another year of rehabilitation afterward.



Debut: Chapter 498 (Manga), Episode 392 (Anime)

A member of Bonney's crew.

  • The Blind Leading the Blind: He is the one who gave Bonney directions on how to apply lipstick to appear as an adult woman. It’s clear from Bonney’s Makeover Fail that he himself doesn’t have the slightest idea how to properly do it either.
  • Bully Turned Buddy: He and one other member of the Bonney Pirates bullied Kuma as a child, but after Kuma healed the injuries Ginny gave them in retribution for their bullying, they became close friends of both Kuma and Ginny.
  • Dumb Muscle: Gyogyo mistakes Queen Dowager Connie with Bonney (who hadn't quite managed to master her Devil Fruit at the time).

Firetank Pirates

    In General

Capone "Gang" Bege's pirate crew, resembling a mafia family in both appearance and organization. The crew appears to be extremely loyal to their captain, and base their power around Bege's Devil Fruit abilities to lethal effect. At some point during the time skip, they fell under the command of Big Mom. Notable members include Vito and Gotti.

  • Badass Cape: All members wear capes, even Capone Bege, and they're all badass mafia pirates.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Most of the Firetank Pirates members wear a simple business suit, with a Badass Cape draped over it.
  • Big, Thin, Short Trio: The three most prominent members: the short Bege, the skinny Vito, and the huge Gotti.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Their usual strategy seems to be waiting for their enemies to get too close to their captain, and then rushing out all at once to surprise and surround them.
  • I Don't Pay You to Think: When they first appear in the Sabody Archipelago arc, Bege, completely disgusted by Jewelry Bonney's eating habits, wants to kill her. One of his men warns that wouldn't be a good idea as they're close to Marine Headquarters. In response, Bege ruthlessly stabs the man in the eye with his fork.
  • The Mafia: The entire theme of the crew, with Capone Bege as their don/captain, is based off stereotypical mafia gangsters. It actually helps that the Firetank Pirates originated as actual mafia before Bege tired of his own success streak and took to the seas.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: All of them are required to look groomed and well-dressed at all times, as Capone Bege has incredibly low tolerance for sloppy, unclean appearances. Due to their notoriety as a pirate crew, however, they're all badass.
  • Ship Out of Water: Their ship, the Nostra Castello, has treads that allow it to travel on land.

    Capone "Gang" Bege 

Capone "Gang" Bege

Voiced by: Naoki Tatsuta (JP), Kyle Hebert (EN), Marco Viloria (Netflix Dub LatAm, Stampede)

Age: 40 (Pre-Timeskip), 42 (Post-Timeskip)

Debut: Chapter 498 (Manga), Episode 392 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Castle-Castle Fruit

"You guys have already lost... in sheer military force!"

Coming from the West Blue, Capone Bege is one of the older Supernovas and he's the captain of the Firetank Pirates. Once a powerful Mafia boss in his native Blue, he became bored with his dominance of the underworld and decided to head out to sea to conquer and loot as many powerful pirate crews as he can. He has eaten the Castle-Castle Fruit (Shiro Shiro no Mi); his body is a medieval-style human castle (including horses and mounted cannons and all) and his crew (and anyone) can shrink and "enter" him to mount surprise attacks on enemies, and he can interact with them through a manifestation of his conscious self. If that's not enough, he can assume the literal form of a castle human and beef himself up with impressive offense and defense, but if his castle body sustains any harm in that state, his consciousness feels it as well.

He's rather infamous for his sadism, high class attitude, and very short temper. However, his most prominent attribute is his direct approach to victory. Bege is a cunning and crafty opportunist who always goes after the head honchos and no one else, just to enjoy watching their organizations dissolve into chaos after he knocks off the boss.

He also allied himself with the Big Mom Pirates during the Timeskip, serving as a "Rook" combatant in her ranks and marrying one of her daughters to seal his servitude, Charlotte Chiffon. Through her, he now has a son, Capone Pez, making him the only known Supernova so far who has his actual family alongside him as he operates his crew.

He has a bounty of 350,000,000 berries.note 

  • Act of True Love: Bege proves that he loves his wife Chiffon with all his heart during the escape from Whole Cake Island. Despite having the best chance to escape, Bege doesn't even hesitate when she's captured by Oven, and the mafia-pirate saves his wife by blasting Oven in the face with an exploding round, which brings tears of joy to her and makes their son Pez happy.
  • Age-Gap Romance: Bege's wife, Chiffon, is sixteen years younger than him. Despite it, they are a happy couple and even have a child together.
  • All for Nothing: After serving under Big Mom for an entire year, working his way up the ranks to be in a position to kill her, and coming up with a clever plan to pull it off, Bege's entire assassination plan goes up in smoke: Big Mom's scream inadvertently destroys his missile launchers, his escape plan is ruined, and his treachery has been exposed to the Big Mom Pirates. Bege himself lampshades this, although he comments that he feels a little better that at least Big Mom's castle was destroyed from it. The final nail in the coffin comes later when he finds out that it's Luffy who has received all the credit for the assassination plan and is promoted into one of the Pirate Emperors, while Bege's role in the entire affair is relegated to being one of Luffy's allies. Unlike before, Bege is far angrier, with a vein bulging out his neck and steam puffs floating above his head.
  • Animal Motif: According to the SBS, Bege's animal motif are koalas, which share his ability to protect his crew and family by keeping them safe within his own body, thanks to his Devil Fruit.
  • Arch-Enemy: Bege gains Pekom's utmost hatred after he shoots him in the back and abandons him on Zou, which leads to Pekoms swearing revenge. Then, at Whole Cake Island, Bege captures Pekoms, chains him up and shoots him over a cliff into a shark-infested sea.
  • Arc Villain: Bege is the main villain of the Zou Arc. While Jack appears to be the main villain of said arc due to the horrific actions he took against the Minks, Bege is the primary antagonist to the Straw Hats themselves as he captured Sanji and left his own crewmate behind for dead, which serves as the main conflict for the next arc.
  • Ax-Crazy: When he was young, he'd decapitate animals just to see them flail and die while laughing. When he grew older he advanced this grim hobby to entire organizations, killing their leaders to see them fall apart for fun. He intends to do the same to Big Mom's crew by murdering Big Mom herself, but his attempt fails.
  • Badass Boast:
    • While facing briefly Katakuri, Bege points out that everyone has the same power to change the future as Katakuri does.
    • He makes a declaration to his infant son after blasting the shit out of brother-in-law Oven for kidnapping Chiffon:
      Capone Bege: Take a good look, Pez. That's the way your Daddy lives!
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He's a Supernova with an established history, Devil Fruit power, sizable bounty, and powerful crew under his belt. Also wears a dapper suit, as per mafia norm.
  • Bad Boss: Zigzagged. In his debut, he stabs a underling in the eye once and smokes the little guys in his body out without care for any of them. However, it's averted after the Timeskip. Having a family with Chiffon evidently softened him a bit and gave way for some Character Development, as he outwardly expresses care for his crew and is implied to have become a Benevolent Boss.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: In the Whole Cake Island arc, he's mentioned to have sadistically enjoyed cutting off the heads of animals and watching them die.
  • Base on Wheels: The Castle-Castle Fruit makes Bege a literal fortress. It also allows him to turn his legs into tank treads.
  • Batman Gambit:
    • At Zou, Bege forced Caesar to come out of hiding by threatening to shoot him with Seastone bullets (which he didn't have in the first place), taking advantage of Caesar's cowardice in regards to people that can bypass his Logia abilities.
    • His ultimate purpose for allying with Big Mom turns out be a Batman Gambit; since she requires a blood connection and servitude to get in good with her, he married one of her daughters and worked his way up to become a "Rook" ranked combatant in her crew — knowing that she would eventually entrust him with watching over a tea party if he managed to get that rank. To that end, once his men are on guard duty at the party, he plans to have them slaughter her while she's distracted. It fails due to underestimating how much of a threat Big Mom is even when vulnerable.
  • Beard of Evil: Grows a short, chin-hugging one during the timeskip. While being a married man humanized him, he still hasn't lost his ruthless edge.
  • Benevolent Boss: Becoming a father and husband helped Bege treat his men better and show more concern for their well-being.
  • Big Fancy Castle: On virtue of being a man of class and an actual castle, his insides do look very luxurious as well. His "Big Father" technique checks off the 'big' part by turning into an humanoid castle.
  • Bigger on the Inside: Thanks to his Devil Fruit, there's enough space inside him to house an entire army, including weapons and horses. He even has a fancy dining room decorated with portraits of himself.
  • Bodyguard Betrayal: After he took on the role of "Rook" within Big Mom Pirates, he and his men are tasked with guarding the next Tea Party for Pudding's wedding. Unbeknownst to them (sans Pekoms, Brulee and Diesel), he's planning to assassinate Big Mom. He tells Katakuri "Fuck you" when ordered to kill Luffy to avert a bad future Katakuri had foreseen... though ultimately, his assassination plan goes completely belly-up due to his own oversights and various other factors.
  • Brooklyn Rage: His English voice actor, Kyle Hebert, gives him a Brooklyn accent to make him more mafia-like.
  • Challenge Seeker: His reason for becoming a pirate is because he got bored taking out crime family heads on land, so he turned to the sea to test his mettle against stronger foes. Indeed, he chooses the exceptionally powerful Big Mom as the target of his next assassination in a plot that takes a full two years to undertake. He fails, but he considers the destruction of Big Mom's giant castle in the process a decent consolation prize that softens the blow of losing (although he's a lot more pissed off when Luffy gets all the credit in the news).
  • Chess Motifs: Under the Big Mom Pirates, Bege gains the rank of "rook", reflecting his Devil Fruit, which turns him into a literal castle. The motif becomes even stronger when one realizes that Bege's overall bodyshape brings to mind this specific chess piece, implying an intentional design decision.
  • Cigar Chomper: Following his mafia inspiration, Bege is always seen with a cigar in his mouth unless when eating. Even his pirate flag, made in his likeliness, has a cigar in its mouth, while his infant son has a cigar-shaped pacifier.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: His Big Father technique quickly turns into a giant castle, but it's easily prevented from retaliating by Katakuri plugging its cannons with his mochi and Perospero immobilizing it with his candy, and any damage to it is reflected on him.
  • Combat Pragmatist: As a mafia-themed pirate, Bege is not above taking hostages and bluffing in order to get people to do what he wants. He's also smart enough to not punch outside of his weight class; when Kizaru and, much later, Cat Viper came a-knockin', he doesn't even try to deal with them and instead runs for his life. Also, the only reason he doesn't just take the golden opportunity to poison Sanji's new wedding cake to kill Big Mom is because Sanji adamantly refuses to let it happen.
  • Cultured Badass: Bege values and appreciates good manners, and wants his crew to follow his example, like a stereotypical mafia boss. People like Jewelry Bonney, who are rude and eat messily, get him mad real fast.
  • A Day in the Limelight:
    • After being a minor character in the Sabaody Arc, where he makes his debut, Bege gets a lot of focus in the Whole Cake Island Arc, where he temporarily becomes a major ally of the Straw Hats.
    • Along with his crew, Bege stars in his own mini-adventure, in which he and his crew search for Lola, Chiffon's twin sister.
  • Decapitated Army: Invoked; Bege is a big fan of killing the leader of a group and watching the rest flail about directionless, a habit he picked up from literally decapitating animals to watch their bodies do the same.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Bege makes a surprising threat to Charlotte Katakuri, a man with powerful foresight and a bounty higher than Jack's. When he orders Bege to kill Luffy in a desperate attempt to avert the horrible future he had foreseen, Bege responds with one of the biggest "Fuck you"s in the entire arc:
    Capone Bege: All you can do is see a bit into the future. But it doesn't matter... 'Cause everyone has the same power to change it!
  • Domain Holder: Bege has full control over everything inside his castle, since it's essentially his own body, and can shape it to his own liking.
  • The Don: Following his namesake, Capone Bege is the most infamous mafia boss of the One Piece world, and is called "(God)father" by his men. He started out as the most infamous mafia boss of the West Blue until he got bored and became a pirate to sail the Grand Line. The Italian dub gives him a thick, Sicilian accent.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Implied when Bege seems noticeably frustrated reading the paper that gives Luffy all the credit for the raid on the Big Mom Pirates, despite the fact that it was Bege himself who planned out the entire assassination attempt.
  • Enemy Mine: Jimbei attempts to broker a truce between him and the Straw Hats, as Bege is already in place to betray Big Mom (while he and his men posed as guards to the party) and they have similar goals. Both sides are wary, as the Straw Hats find his methods distasteful and Bege boasts that he might kill Luffy if he finds Luffy annoying, and with Luffy being the way he normally is...
  • Establishing Character Moment: In his debut, Bege stabs an underling in the eye for having interrupted his meal and gets annoyed by Bonney's messy table manners, giving immediately that Bege is an unpleasant person to deal with and a refined mafia boss/pirate.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite being a ruthless criminal, Bege is Happily Married to Big Mom's 22nd daughter, Chiffon, and has an infant son named Pez. He deeply loves them both and goes long ways to keep them safe.
  • Evil Genius: Bege's no scientist, but he's a really competent planner, liar, and boss, while having several resources at his disposal.
  • Evil Versus Evil: Bege is a ruthless mafia boss who plots to take down Big Mom, a pirate as cruel as him. He does get assistance from the decidedly not-evil Straw Hats due to the circumstances, however.
  • Family-Values Villain: Befitting for a character based off a classic Mafia boss, Bege cares a lot for his family. He and Chiffon often show genuine moments of affection, and he apologizes to his son Pez after having made him cry.
  • "Fantastic Voyage" Plot: His Devil Fruit allows him to shrink people to enter his castle body. This way, he can keep his entire crew inside of him.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Like any mafia boss, he might come off as sophisticated and levelheaded at first, but will quickly resort to cruelty and violence towards those who are uncooperative.
  • Fights Like a Normal: When he needs to fight by himself, Bege can whip out a classic little friend: the Tommy Gun.
  • Foil: In the Whole Cake island arc, through his relationship with his family, Bege poses as a contrast to Charlotte Linlin.
    • Bege wears nice, dark suits and smokes cigars to portray a threatening image of a mafia don, and even acts the part. However, he loves his family, and cares for his crew (even if he won't always admit it). Big Mom's clothes are obnoxiously colorful and she carries a pretense of reasonable diplomacy... but behind closed doors she's completely nuts, with a destructive, homicidal temper.
    • Bege is a caring father and husband, who loves Chiffon despite her Gonkiness, and grooms his only child, Pez, into becoming the next don. Big Mom is a horrible parent and spouse, with many discarded husbands and her many children fearing her with four of them "betraying" her in some fashion (Chiffon, Lola, Praline, Pudding).
    • Their own Character Development went in opposite directions; Bege started off as ruthless, bloodthirsty, and unreasonably harsh, but marrying Chiffon and having a son after the Time Skip softened him, to where he admits he cares for his crew and will protect them, come hell or high water such as blasting Oven for kidnapping Chiffon. Big Mom's monstrous, hedonistic, and fickle personality was the result of having trusted parental figures see her as some kind of meal ticket and enable her worst traits while not even bothering to properly discipline her, resulting in the sweet but mentally ill Linlin developing very twisted morals. Having a lot of husbands and a lot of children didn't improve her situation; it just got worse, and created a very large Dysfunctional Family.
  • For the Evulz: In his younger days, he would cut off the heads of animals just to watch their bodies writhe, and applied the same principles to organizations; taking out mafia bosses and other underground big shots just to see the carnage that ensues as "the blood-soaked struggles for power", as Jimbei puts it.
  • Flunky Boss: Bege's powers work in conjunction with his small army of subordinates, who can hide inside his body and attack without warning.
  • Follow in My Footsteps: He hopes his son Pez will succeed him in the family business when he gets older, and has been grooming him for the position. To that end, he allows Pez to witness violent events such as Pekoms' shooting and blasting Oven in the face with an explosive round, despite his son being a baby, as violence is in the nature of being a don.
  • Genius Loci: His Devil Fruit turns him into a human castle, where people can go into and everything. Additionally, he can control and reshape every structure and piece of furniture within him. This includes making cannons pop out of his floors, turning the flames of candles held by candelabras and chandeliers into knives, making them pronged weapons of sorts, levitating the weapons within him that are normally used for display, making tablecloths wrap around people, and even making the very floor underneath people within him like quicksand. His "Big Father" technique makes him a more traditional example of this trope, as he literally becomes a giant walking fortress.
  • Good Parents: Despite being a ruthless and sadistic mafia don, he's a loving father to his infant son, Pez. Much of their interactions have him making funny faces and speaking in baby-talk whenever Pez gets upset. And despite taking Pez to see violent events like Pekoms' execution and his maternal uncle Oven being explosive-blasted in the face, it's merely out of good intentions to have the son succeed the father in mafia-running.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Bege is nearly always seen with a big cigar in his mouth, to follow his mafia boss appearance.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Becomes a temporary ally to the Straw Hats for the Sanji-retrieving Straw Hats during the Whole Cake Island Arc, alongside Jimbei, Pedro and Carrot.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: While anyone would be a bit grossed out by how gluttonous Bonney could be, there really isn't a need to consider killing her off, nor was there a reason to stab an underling in the eye for pointing out the consequences for causing trouble near Marine turf.
  • Happily Married: Although marrying Chiffon was part of his plan to infiltrate the ranks and assassinate Big Mom, he really did fall in love with her and her kind influence shaped him into becoming a sort of Benevolent Boss. And if there's any doubt that their love isn't genuine, he quickly heads to Cacao Island to aid her after Chiffon goes with Sanji and Pudding to bake a new wedding cake to stop Big Mom. He arrives and sees Oven holding her hostage with the intent to give her a traitor's execution, with Chiffon pleading for her husband's crew to stay away so Oven wouldn't go after them, too. So, Bege decides to take the third option by feigning surrender... only to blast Oven right in the face with an explosive round once he has a good enough aim on him, saving his wife from certain death.
  • Hazy-Feel Turn: He allies with Big Mom over the timeskip, although he wasn't exactly a nice guy to start with. And then when he reveals his plan of assassinating Big Mom, he (reluctantly) allies with Luffy, who has a somewhat different goal.
  • He Knows Too Much: When a living castle door in Whole Cake Palace overhears his talk about his assassination plan, he gives the door a look, and Gotti proceeds to cut its face off, "killing" it.
    Bege: Loose lips sink ships.
  • I Don't Pay You to Think: When an underling advises him not to cause trouble near Marine turf, Bege replies by forking him in the eye.
  • I Gave My Word: Bege promises Caesar Clown he would give his heart back once he fulfills his end of helping out with Big Mom's assassination, which he simply does despite the attempt failing. Despite knowing well who Caesar is and him threatening his son to make sure Bege complies, the thought of killing him never crosses his mind and he unleashes Caesar back into the world.
  • I Lied: He threatened a hiding Caesar Clown with Seastone bullets, although he revealed that he never had any (what he does have are Seastone spears), and Caesar fell for it.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Bege successfully snipes Oven's head from at least a mile or two away, even if he's holding Chiffon hostage.
  • In the Back: Shoots Pekoms in the back when the latter lets his personal feelings get in the way of their mission.
  • It Amused Me: Jimbei states that when he was younger, he would often kill the heads of rival organizations simply because he enjoyed watching the violent power struggles that followed.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: When Oven holds Chiffon hostage, Bege pretends to surrender, only to shoot Oven in the face with an explosive round.
  • Jaw Drop:
    • He sports a hilariously epic reaction when Luffy decides to charge straight towards Big Mom alongside Brulee's clones, even vocally identifying himself among the crowd of decoys, potentially ruining their Wedding Smashers plan.
    • When he realizes the assassination plan has just gone belly up. That one is not only sustained, it is intermixed with cutesy eyes like the ones the awakened Zoans of Impel Down had because what just happened is so off-the-charts unbelievably bad he has suffered a mental kerfuffle.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Though he has good manners in conversation (so long as something doesn't set him off) and is a loving father/husband, he's a ruthless and violent pirate/mobster who thinks lowly of the concept of "friendship" and doesn't hesitate to harm his own allies (such as Pekoms).
  • Know When to Fold 'Em:
    • He doesn't stick around for the chaos on Sabaody Archipelago, picking the route with the lightest resistance and leaving without fighting Kizaru or the Pacifistas.
    • When Cat Viper confronted him about shooting Pekoms in the back, he didn't even bother trying to argue with him or state his case and instead opted to run like hell.
    • According to Charlotte Brûlée, Bege was the only Supernova to invade Totto Land and actually see Big Mom. As soon as he did, he requested to become her subordinate on the spot. This was all part of the plan, though, as he knew a head-on fight would end badly.
    • In the past, part of his motivation of going to the seas as a pirate was for his own safety; he knows that despite his powerful defense, he would eventually be overwhelmed with all of the people who are gunning for him. Him joining Big Mom also serves as protection to it.
  • Kubrick Stare: Given how his fedora tends to shadow his eyes, Bege often pulls his look when he wants to look threatening, or when he thinks he's got luck on his side.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: While he plans to take down Big Mom and allies himself with the Straw Hats, Bege is still an evil mafia boss with a long list of crimes he committed in the past, as well in the present story such as shooting down Pekoms, his own ally, kidnapping Sanji and willingly use the Straw Hats to further his own goals and nearly getting them all killed. In the end his plans are ruined and he's forced to flee, is beaten by Big Mom herself, his ship is destroyed, and the arc ends with Luffy of all people being labeled as the mastermind behind his plan and he is considered an accomplice. And while Luffy's bounty triples for his efforts, Bege just gets a minor 50 million increase.
  • Living Structure Monster: His Devil Fruit makes him a living building of sorts, as he can keep his subordinates inside his body and open small windows with cannons. His "Big Father" technique literally makes him a living fortress.
  • Logical Weakness: While the abilities of the Castle-Castle Fruit are certainly impressive from the defensive standpoint of turning Bege into a walking fortress (in both the figurative and literal sense), the offensive capabilities are dependent on the armaments of the fortress remaining intact and there being sufficient manpower to keep things operational.
  • Long Game: His plan against Big Mom required marrying into the family and rising through the ranks, which given he has a son that he didn't before the timeskip means this has taken him at least a year to set up.
  • Love Redeems: Downplayed. Bege is introduced as a ruthless cold-blooded Mafia Don with little care for his men, who he views as expendable. Once he marries Chiffon and becomes a father towards Capone Pez, he becomes a better person for the sake of his family and learns to treat his men with more care, but remains a Mafia Don.
  • Made of Iron: His "Big Father" technique helps, but it is fairly impressive that Bege has taken several direct hits from Big Mom herself and is still alive and functional. Keep in mind, she was accidentally killing giant bears when she only six; Big Mom's strength will have only grown since then, so yeah, Bege is one guy with some serious durability. He also states that cannons don't faze him.
  • The Mafia: He was the head of one of five enormous Mafia gangs that dominated the underworld in the West Blue before he eventually got bored and decided to be a pirate instead. He still operates his crew as if it were a Mafia gang though.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: He's always sharply dressed, and Bonney's Jabba Table Manners disgust him.
  • Mister Big: Bege is the boss and shortest member of his organization, even being dwarfed by his mooks, although he can become a literal human-castle with his Big Father technique.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Bege's surname and given name were taken from two criminals. His surname Capone was taken from the 1920's American gangster, Al Capone, and his name Bege from the English privateer, William le Sauvage.
  • Neat Freak: He demands cleanliness and proper formal-wear from those who meet to discuss business with him and he was disgusted by Bonney's table manners to the point of wanting to kill her. This also extends to Vito.
  • No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Dine: The first thing he does to Sanji when the latter gets forced to enter his "castle" is to offer him food and a drink. This is while the rest of the Straw Hat Pirates are chained up and being held at gunpoint.
  • Not Even Bothering with an Excuse: When Cat Viper confronts him for having shot Pekoms, he just bolts instead of giving any kind of explanation.
  • Not So Stoic: He usually sports a cool demeanor, but he allows himself to be silly when it means caring for his infant son. And he can also be shaken out of his cool and composed state if something really bad comes along and ruins his plans. And if something really bad happens that means he's utterly boned, he'll be reduced to a boggle-eyed buffoon.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • When he realized that Cat Viper was pissed off at him about shooting Pekoms.
    • And again, when Commander Katakuri arrives for the tea party, already taking out an invitee who planned to get revenge on Big Mom. Katakuri can see into an immediate future, which Bege correctly assumes will put a big spanner into his plans for Big Mom.
    • Experiences his biggest one yet when Big Mom unexpectedly unleashes a blast of Haki that obliterates the poison warheads intended to kill her while she was in the middle of her Villainous Breakdown. Not only that, the big mirror that Caesar carries as their escape plan also gets cracked similarly. He and his crew could tell immediately that they were so very screwed.
  • One-Man Army: Probably the single most literal example of this trope ever created, considering he's one man who contains an army (which is his own crew) in his body and can defeat multiple enemies with ease.
  • One-Winged Angel: His "Big Father" ("Ein Grosser Vater") technique turns him into a giant walking castle armed to the teeth.
  • Papa Wolf: When Caesar Clown threatens to hurt Pez if he doesn't uphold his end of the bargain for the assassination plan, Bege starts getting noticeably angry, with a shadowed glare and a tooth-baring snarl.
  • Perma-Stubble: To help reinforce the mafia don image, Bege has a stubble. It becomes a full beard over the timeskip.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • He's shown to be a caring father and a loving husband — the classic redeeming feature for a classic mobster.
    • In spite of his hatred of Caesar, Bege gives him his heart back as promised and lets him go.
  • Powers Do the Fighting: For the most part, Bege himself doesn't fight directly. Instead, he uses his castle body to let his Mooks perform sneak attacks. When faced with an actual fight, he runs if possible. As his One-Winged Angel technique shows, however, if cornered he himself can become a dangerous fighter.
  • Remote Body: When inside his own castle body via a manner somewhat similar to Robin's replication abilities, he can simultaneously move around inside and control his outer self.
  • Sadist: According to Jimbei, he's the type of guy that likes to cut the heads off of animals just to watch their bodies flail around helplessly. In the actual storyline, we get to see this sadism in action when he shoots Pekoms off a cliff into shark-infested waters with a huge grin on his face.
  • Sadistic Choice: Bege's first time meeting his brother-in-law, Charlotte Oven, created a difficult situation: Oven had taken Chiffon hostage and wants the Firetank Pirates to surrender. If Bege chose Option A (going after Oven to save his wife), he and his entire crew will be killed, which Chiffon begs them not to do. If Bege chose Option B (obeying Chiffon's request to leave her behind so he'll be saved from a traitor's execution), he and his crew would get out alive, but Bege would be without a wife and his son Pez without a mother. This being Bege, he decides to pull a bluff and pretend to surrender, only to shoot an explosive round at Oven's face once he was close, saving Chiffon.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: When Admiral Kizaru comes knocking down the sky, Bege orders his men to leave, knowing he doesn't stand a chance if he were to meet the admiral.
  • Sealed Army in a Can: Bege's Devil Fruit lets him become a human fortress and keep his entire crew inside his body.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Appropriately for a mafia boss, Bege is always seen wearing a suit and, when privately meeting with others, demands they do the same.
  • Shout-Out: Bege being stated to cut off animals' heads is a reference to The Godfather, in which Tom Hagen, the consigliere of the Corleone family coerced a target into doing what the eponymous Godfather wanted by having the target's prized stallion decapitated and the head placed in his bed.
  • Significant Birth Date: Shares his birthday of January 17th with his namesake, Al Capone.
  • Slasher Smile: He bears a particularly vicious one while firing his pistol into Pekoms and sending him over a cliff.
  • The Starscream: He has no intention of staying under Big Mom; he's actually gunning for her head just to see her entire organization collapse and laugh at the carnage that would ensue. This was foreshadowed earlier: while he joined up with Big Mom on the spot after attacking her territory, Pekoms was also seen telling him not to underestimate Big Mom before his apparent execution.
  • Stone Wall: Defensively, the Castle-Castle Fruit is a top-notch ability. Not so much the case offensively, as Bege rarely tries to attack enemies himself (he depends on his crew to do that for him in the first place), and the few times he attempts to, he is easily thwarted.
  • Straight for the Commander: As a Mafia boss and a pirate, his ideology has always been to go straight for the leader, take them out, and then let the subordinates scramble in the chaos. As of the Totto Land arc, he had been planning to gun for Big Mom, and at this point he's nearly succeeding thanks to the support of some very powerful allies.
  • The Strategist: Bege's strongest point is not raw strength or even his rather powerful Devil Fruit, but his excellent use of tactics coupled with great perception of enemy weaknesses.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: His son Pez looks almost just like him, down to the hat, cigar-shaped pacifier, and stubble.
  • Synchronization: Because his fortresses are based off his Devil Fruit and therefore extensions of himself, directly damaging his fortresses will transfer to Bege in the form of severe bodily injuries as if he was being attacked himself.
  • Super Mob Boss: He used to be a Mafia leader who dominated the whole crime underworld of the West Blue, when he changes his job to become a pirate, he still acts and dresses like a Mafia leader, he is a major threat thanks to his powers and his subordinates.
  • Take a Third Option: What Bege ultimately does to save Chiffon from being killed by Oven, her own brother. He doesn't want to risk the safety of his crew and his son by gunning after Oven, but he doesn't want to lose his wife, either. So he pretends to surrender... and blasts the shit out of Oven once he was close enough.
  • Tank Goodness: Bege can turn his own legs into tank treads, not unlike Franky. This can even apply to his ship, whenever he wants to travel by land.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The proposed alliance between Luffy and him to take down Big Mom is not a friendly one; Luffy wants to at least punch Bege out for shooting Pekoms, Bege is wary about Luffy in general, and Caesar Clown is dragged into this mess against his will thanks to Bege getting his heart. Even if Jimbei is there to calm them down and make them focus to their shared goals, it's made clear that they hate each others' guts.
  • Time for Plan B: When his plan for killing Big Mom fails and he and his group are cornered by Big Mom's crew (who are recovering thanks to Katakuri) and his escape route is "closed", he hurriedly turns into "Big Father" and tells his group to get inside him quickly. But even then, as his castle form is immobilized and Big Mom assaults him, he can't hold on for long, so plans to retreat with everyone, with Germa 66 covering him.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: His wife, Chiffon, towers over him.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Bege is one of the more outright Ax-Crazy and murderous Supernovas, and his alliance with Luffy doesn't change any of that. While the Straw Hats' motives are to save Sanji, Bege's is assassinating Big Mom and revelling in the ensuing chaos.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In his debut, Bege wants to kill Jewelry Bonney for her atrocious manners and stabs a subordinate's eye for talking out of turn. When he reappears, after the time-skip, Bege is happily married to his wife Chiffon and making goofy faces for his infant son.
  • Underestimating Badassery: For all of his careful planning to assassinate her as quickly and cleanly as possible, Bege still underestimates Big Mom, just like Pekoms said he would. He does not plan on her Haki simply being powerful enough to destroy his missiles and his escape route, leaving him and the entire alliance stuck in a death trap against the entirety of the Big Mom pirates.
  • Victory Is Boring: Bege is former land-based Mafia boss who dominated the people and the Underworld of the West Blue before getting bored with the lack of challenge and deciding to head out to sea, going into the Grand Line.
  • War for Fun and Profit: Bege started wars with other mafias and various underworld factions just to kill their leaders, take their stuff, and watch their subordinates panic aimlessly for his amusement.
  • Why Didn't I Think of That?: It's brought up that Bege could just abandon his temporary assassination allies to die while he runs away to safety. He gets a nasty chuckle out of it, but doesn't go through with it because he'd rather not make even more enemies than he already has at present.
  • Wicked Cultured: As a classic Mafia boss, Bege enjoys gourmet cuisine and fine wine, and his personal meeting room, which he shapes as he wants, appears quite fancy. According to supplementary material, watching paintings is one of his hobbies.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Shoots down Pekoms when the latter decides to not take Sanji with them out of gratitude, which would have caused one of their missions to fail. He even says that Pekoms was now useless shortly after dispatching him.

"Monster Gun" Vito

Voiced by: Daisuke Kishio (JP), Chris Hackney (EN)

Age: 36

Debut: Chapter 812 (Manga), Episode 763 (Anime)

The advisor for the Firetank Pirates.

He has a bounty of 95,000,000 berries

  • Animal Motifs: Between his laugh, big hands, and tongue, Vito bears a visual similarity with a frog.
  • Affably Evil: Vito comes off as this, eagerly showing his respect and interest towards Sanji and acting rather polite, even when he's not being treated with the same respect.
  • The Consigliere: He acts as this, as the adviser in a mafia-based crew.
  • Cool Shades: He's got a cool pair of round shades.
  • Dual Wielding: He has two gun holsters on his waist. They hold a large pair of dark revolvers.
  • Fan Boy: He is one for a comic strip in World Economic Times newspaper about a young boy who fights an evil organization. Specifically, he's the fan for that evil organization, Germa 66 — whose leader is Sanji's father. He's so much of a fanboy that when he saw Bobbin running after Sanji, he shot the former down, citing Sanji being part of the Germa for his reasoning. He doesn't seem to mind that Sanji wants absolutely nothing to do with Germa or his birth family, and doesn't return Vito's admiration.
  • Hand Cannon: Vito wields two massive black revolvers, the reason behind his epithet "Monster Gun". He's got equally big hands to match.
  • Lean and Mean: Downplayed. He's tall and lean, and is part of an antagonist pirate crew, but he's quite polite and nice.
  • Maniac Tongue: He's got an Overly-Long Tongue that he always tucks out and he's a pirate crewmember. Downplayed in that he's actually pretty nice.
  • Oh, Crap!: He has this reaction in Chapter 861, after seeing how many powerful and esteemed people there will be at Sanji and Pudding's wedding. Considering how Bege planned to assassinate Big Mom, Vito had every right to be afraid.
  • Red Baron: His epithet, "Monster Gun". Considering how big they are, it's not undeserved.
  • Shout-Out Theme Naming: Befitting for a Mafia Boss consigliere, he's named after Vito Corleone.
  • Signature Laugh: His "Nyorororo".
  • Tattooed Crook: He's got some particular tattoos on his forehead and the back of both hands.
  • Verbal Tic: Vito often ends his speeches with "rero". Lampshaded by Luffy when the two first met.

  • Bridal Carry: While escaping from the Marines, Gotti carries Lola in his arms.

    Charlotte Chiffon 

Charlotte Chiffon

Voiced by: Aya Hisakawa (JP), Kate Bristol (EN)

Age: 26

Debut: Chapter 825 (Manga), Episode 783 (Anime)

"It's easy to say "thank you for saving Lola" with words. But when those you're indebted to are in trouble? That's when the real truth of that "thanks" is tested! Live with honor! That's what they always say, right, darlin?"

The 22nd daughter of the Charlotte Family and Totto Land's Minister of Puffs. She's the older twin sister of Lola, whom the Straw Hats met at Thriller Bark. She was arranged to marry Capone Bege, captain of the Firetank Pirates, to seal an alliance between them and the Big Mom Pirates, and together they've had a son named Pez.

  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Despite being royalty by virtue of being one of Big Mom's daughters, she subverts the trope by being a supportive wife and loving mother and absolutely lacking the homicidal insanity and other bad traits that seem to run in the family.
  • Arranged Marriage: Implied with how she and Capone Bege got together and had a son, Pez, since the Firetank Pirates were revealed to be allied with Big Mom post-Time Skip. Not that anything was wrong with it.
  • Association Fallacy: Of the "Guilt by Association" type. Because she is the identical twin sister of the runaway Lola, who skipped out the day she was supposed to marry the giant prince, Loki, Big Mom would become enraged whenever she saw her and beat Chiffon within an inch of her life. This led to Chiffon disowning her mother and supporting Bege's plan to assassinate Big Mom without an inch of remorse.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Aside from the abuse Big Mom gave her for looking like her runaway twin sister, Lola, Chiffon decides to help Bege off Big Mom during Sanji's wedding because she knows of Lola's naïveté concerning their mother, and that she wouldn't be safe as long as Big Mom lives.
  • Bridal Carry: Gender inverted. When escaping from the Marines, Chiffon carries her husband Bege and their son Pez in her arms.
  • Cool Big Sis: Chiffon and her twin sister Lola have this dynamic, with Chiffon technically being the older one. She is delighted to hear of her sister's seafaring adventures from Nami, and the only one of her family who doesn't hate her for running away. She even supports Bege's plan to assassinate Big Mom because Big Mom is planning to kill Lola.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her twin sister, Lola, ran away from a very important political marriage, which was supposed to seal an alliance between the Big Mom Pirates and the giants of Elbaf (the latter who hate her for the atrocities she did to them during childhood). Chiffon was sent in Lola's place to cover up Lola's absence, but when the switch was discovered, the giants broke off the planned alliance. Big Mom began hating Chiffon so much that she would beat her daughter black and blue whenever they crossed paths, just for having the same face as Lola's. Her older and younger siblings knew of the abuse but did nothing to help her. As a result, she completely cut all ties with her mother, whom she now sees as a monster, and decided to support her husband Bege's plan of assassinating Big Mom without an inch of remorse (though she has another reason for her betrayal).
  • Death Glare: A stern look from her is enough to make Gotti, the Firetank Pirates' ruthless hitman, tremble before her.
  • Defector from Decadence: Although she is royalty through being a daughter of Big Mom, she completely sides with her husband Bege of the Firetank Pirates for being mistreated and to prevent Big Mom from killing Lola.
  • Defiant Captive: After she is hold hostage by her own brother, the moment she realizes the Firetank Pirates will soon receive her fate, Chiffon begs Bege to abandon her, only requesting that he avenge her afterwards. Bege refuses, and blasts Oven away from his wife.
  • Defiant to the End: At some point, she's in absolutely life-threatening danger: her brother Oven has captured her and intends to kill her in public to show what happens to those who defy Big Mom. Chiffon still refuses to give in, telling Bege to not approach her and her captors, and only asking him to avenge her soon-to-come death. Bege refuses to abandon her and blasts the ever-loving shit out of Oven, and soon she's safely back to his side.
  • Ear Ache: She angrily pulls Gotti away by the ear when he starts threatening Sanji.
  • Foil:
    • To her younger sister, Pudding. Both of them were horrifically abused by their own relatives for different reasons. Pudding snapped completely due to having no one help her, and stayed broken for a long time. Chiffon was able to pull through after finding love and support in her husband, Capone Bege, and his crew, and was able to retain her kind demeanor as she raised her son, Pez.
    • Later, to her own son, Pez. Chiffon grew up without a father her entire life, due to Big Mom's habit of using her many husbands like sperm banks and believing that fathers are not true "family". So when Chiffon's biological father, Pound, kept trying to see her, she saw him as a total stranger. On the other hand, Pez grew up in a loving household where the husband does have say in the child's upbringing, and Capone Bege, despite being a ruthless mafia don and pirate captain, is a good father who does his best to raise him. This healthy family influence was what allowed Pez to recognize Pound as kin, despite being a baby, and even cries when he sees Oven, his maternal uncle, brutally kill Pound, something that Chiffon finds completely baffling.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Chiffon is the responsible, knowledgeable one to Lola's flighty naivete.
  • Gag Lips: Charlotte Chiffon has huge lips, something shared with her father, Pound, and her twin sister Lola.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She wears her hair in very short pigtails, distinguishing her from Lola, her twin sister, who wears her hair into two braids.
  • Gonky Femme: Chiffon may look gonky but she's a feminine and mature woman who cares for her husband and infant son.
  • Good Parents: She is a very caring mother to her infant son, Pez, which is very much unlike Big Mom. Despite being part of a Mafia-esque pirate crew, she and Capone Bege raise Pez with love and care.
  • Happily Married: Chiffon and Bege are very loving towards each other, and both raise their son, Pez, the best they can. Fully and absolutely confirmed when Bege happily blasts her brother Oven with an explosive round for capturing her, telling Pez that's how his daddy fights. Upon realizing what Bege has done, Chiffon starts shedding Tears of Joy.
  • Hated Hometown: Not surprisingly, she deeply resents Totto Land due to it being the place where Big Mom horrendously abused her when Lola ran away from her marriage. She decides to leave her home for good after Big Mom goes berserk, siding with Bege and Pez as her true family.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She tries doing this when the Firetank Pirates start gunning for Oven, telling them to stay back and not go after her brother so they all wouldn't be wiped out after she dies. This being Capone Bege, he refuses to abide his wife's wishes by pulling a bluff and blasting Oven in the face with a cannon to save her in his Big Damn Heroes moment.
  • I Owe You My Life: She's very grateful towards the Straw Hat Pirates for saving her twin sister Lola; so grateful that she's willing to leave Bege and his crew to help Pudding bake a cake to satisfy Big Mom's hunger pang when Pudding tells her Big Mom is targeting the Straw Hats. When Bege and his crew tries to dissuade her due to the risks, she's fully aware of this and refuses to do nothing when the people who saved her sister are in danger.
    Chiffon: "Thank you for saving Lola." It's so easy to just say the words! Whether you really mean it or not will be proven when the person you're indebted to is in trouble!
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: She and her identical twin sister Lola have the same large Gonk face and rosy-pink hair, except Chiffon has short pigtails and wears a purple bow in her hair, while Lola has long braids (though she did wear a bow like her sister when she was younger).
  • Like Mother, Unlike Daughter: Chiffon is a very kind and loving mother, and an emotionally sensitive person, very unlike her own mother, Big Mom.
  • Made of Iron: Implied. Big Mom was shown to kill animals (albeit accidentally) in one blow as a child and even killed a giant warrior during a childhood rampage, so imagine how strong she must be whenever Big Mom crossed paths with Chiffon and beat her black and blue in a rage. Chiffon was often so severely injured that she kept thinking she would die one day.
  • Mama Bear: She gets very angry with Caesar Clown when the latter starts threatening to kill her infant son, Pez, if Bege fails to uphold his end of the deal with the assassination plan.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Part of the reason why she chose to betray Big Mom was because of the horrific abuse she received from her every time they crossed paths, just for being the identical twin sister of the runaway Lola.
  • Plucky Girl: Like her twin sister Lola, she acts brave and optimistic, and believes the Straw Hats will be able to calm Big Mom down from her hunger-induced rampage. This trait is why Bege fell in love with her.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pink hair and is a very kind and loving mother unlike the similarly-rose-haired Big Mom. Her twin sister Lola shares her sweetness and pink hair color as well.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: She opts to leave Totto Land with her husband and his crew for good while Big Mom goes on a hunger rampage through Whole Cake Island, not even caring what happens to her biological family or her mother since she has nothing but bad memories of home.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Despite being the gentle, loving wife of the notorious Capone Bege, she was able to intimidate the much taller and ruthless Gotti with just a glare and a few stern words, and drag him away from Sanji by the ear despite their height differences.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She got her Gonkiness, large size, and Gag Lips from both her mother, Big Mom and her father, Pound. Her sister Lola shares her traits by virtue of being identical twins. The twin resemblance was exploited by Big Mom who sent Chiffon in Lola's place after Lola ran away the day she was supposed to marry the giant prince, Loki, and seal the alliance between the Big Mom Pirates and the giants of Elbaf. But once the switch was discovered, the giants refused to ally with Big Mom. Now the mere fact that Chiffon looked like the runaway Lola was such an irritation to Big Mom that she would fly into a rage and beat her daughter black and blue whenever she saw her.
  • Supreme Chef: She is mentioned to specialize in making her namesake dessert, chiffon cakes. Chiffon's younger sister, Pudding, an Evil Chef who is a chocolatier, plans to forcibly coerce her into quickly making a replacement wedding cake for Big Mom when she goes on a hunger rampage for the wedding cake that was ruined by the Straw Hats. Or that's what Pudding tells the rest of the family anyways... in reality, Pudding sincerely pleads with Chiffon to help her save Sanji and his friends, and the cake is a part of said plan.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: She's much taller than her husband, Capone Bege.
  • True Blue Femininity: Like Praline, she also wears blue. This is in contrast to her twin sister Lola, who wears red.
  • Twin Switch: Invoked, but not willingly. Some years ago, Chiffon was put in Lola's place by Big Mom to cover up the fact that Lola ran away on the day of a very important political wedding, which was supposed to seal a planned alliance between the Big Mom Pirates and the giants of Elbaf. Once the switch was discovered, the giants broke it off. Big Mom was so angry that she would constantly beat Chiffon whenever they crossed paths.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Subverted. She (as well as her twin sister Lola) is as ugly as her mother and father.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her being the identical twin sister of Lola, an ally of the Straw Hats from the Thriller Bark arc, is just the tip of the iceberg.
  • White Sheep: To the audience, at least, due to her sweet personality and true allegiances. To her own family, however, she is the Black Sheep much like her sister Lola.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: By the conclusion of the Whole Cake Island arc, Chiffon is no longer willing to stay at Totto Land, her home, due to the horrendous abuse she suffered at Big Mom's hands.
  • You're Not My Mother: Because Big Mom abused Chiffon just for being Lola's identical twin for years, Chiffon sees her mother as a monster and disowned her, seeing only her husband Bege, their son Pez, and her identical twin sister, Lola, as true family. She doesn't even care about what'll happen when Big Mom goes on one of her hunger rampages, only opting to leave Totto Land for good as it crashes and burns.

    Capone Pez 

Capone Pez

Voiced by: Masami Suzuki (JP), Kate Bristol (EN)

Age: Less than 1

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

The infant son of Capone Bege and Charlotte Chiffon, as well as the grandson of Charlotte Linlin and Pound.

  • Cheerful Child: Due to him being a baby.
  • Cigar Chomper: It's not a real cigar, but a pacifier that looks like one.
  • Fearless Infant: Averted. Despite Bege exposing him to violence activities and/or dangerous situations, he still cries. Although he does starts cheering when Bege saves Chiffon from Oven by shooting an explosive round at his face.
  • Foil: To his own mother, Chiffon. Chiffon grew up without a father her entire life, due to Big Mom's habit of using her many husbands like sperm banks and believing that fathers are not true "family". So when Chiffon's biological father, Pound, kept trying to see her, she saw him as a total stranger. On the other hand, Pez grew up in a loving household where the husband does have say in the child's upbringing, and Bege, despite being a ruthless mafia don and pirate captain, is a good father who does his best to raise him. This healthy family influence was what allowed Pez to recognize Pound as kin, despite being a baby, and even cries when he sees Oven, his maternal uncle, brutally kill Pound, something that Chiffon finds completely baffling.
  • Follow in My Footsteps: Bege hopes that he will succeed him as The Don in the family business once he's older. To that end, he had been taking him to witness violent events such as the shooting of Pekoms and blasting Oven in the face with an explosive round, though it is with merely good intentions.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite being a baby, he's able to recognize Pound as his grandfather or at least family despite seeing him for the first time. And after departing from Cacao Island, he's able to sense Pound's presence before anyone notices him despite being far away from the island and he starts crying when he knows Pound is going to die.
  • Meaningful Name: His name means "fish" in Spanish. It may also be a reference to the Pez candy brand. Both follow the Charlotte Family tradition of food based names.
  • Perma-Stubble: He clearly inherit this from his father quite early despite being a baby.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He heavily resembles his father, complete with hat, stubble, and cigar. (Though the cigar's just a pacifier.) He's also essentially a patchwork child since he also possesses his mother's pink hair and wears a baby suit that's more similar in color scheme to that of his mother's outfit.

Fallen Monk Pirates

    In General 
The crew of Urouge.

    "Mad Monk" Urouge 

"Mad Monk" Urouge

Voiced by: Taiten Kusunoki (JP), Major Attaway (EN), Leonardo García (Netflix Dub LatAm, Stampede)

Age: 45 (Pre-Timeskip), 47 (Post-Timeskip)

Debut: Chapter 498 (Manga), Episode 392 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Unnamed Strength enhancing Fruit

Urouge is the captain of the Fallen Monk Pirates and the oldest supernova, and he has the smallest bounty of the group. He is a Mighty Glacier who hails from a sky island, as you might have figured. He has a perpetual smile on his face which never goes away, even when he's seen showing fear. He has eaten a Devil Fruit that allows him to convert damage he has sustained into raw power and rapidly expand his muscles.

He has a bounty of 108,000,000 berries.

  • Animal Motifs: According to the SBS, elephants, fitting as Urouge is a massive man with extraordinary physical strength. As well, elephants are considered holy animals in Buddhist tradition, which Urouge takes much of his appearance and theme from.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • For such a notorious pirate, Urouge is a monk as well and is very respectful toward people's plights, as he does not stop Kaido when he jumps off a sky island to commit suicide and instead prays for him.
    • There's something to be said about the fact that he's the only member of the Worst Generation to (apparently) never get subjugated or beaten down by an Emperor, especially considering he technically faced two of them.
  • Hulking Out: Urouge's Devil Fruit allows him to convert damage inflicted onto him into physical power to become incredibly muscular and gain the strength to knock a Pacifista around.
  • Kavorka Man: Oda says Urouge's favorite hobbies is "love affairs", but given the man he's based on, it's not so surprising.
  • Large and in Charge: Urouge is a huge man and the largest Supernova. He's also the largest member of his own crew, among which he easily stands out as the captain.
  • Mighty Glacier: Urouge is not very fast but is very tough and strong, especially after he uses his devil fruit power.
  • Mystical 108: Urouge's bounty when he arrives at Sabaody is 108,000,000 in reference to the 108 Temptations in Buddhism and his monk theme.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Urouge shares many traits with the semi-legendary Ji Gong, a Chinese Buddhist monk who was said to possess supernatural powers and to often violate his precepts by drinking alcohol and eating meat (Urouge likes meat and one of his hobbies is drinking alcohol). Like Rasputin, Ji Gong was referred to as the "Mad Monk" in an old Hong Kong film.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: During the time skip, Cracker tells Luffy that Urouge has defeated Snack, formerly one of Big Mom's Sweet Commanders, before being defeated by Cracker himself. Urouge has also successfully escaped from Tottoland with his life while most would be kicked out in humiliation or killed.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The only time Urouge drops his grin is when, while resting on a sky island, he sees a man coming near him, implying said man is extremely dangerous. Shortly after, that man is revealed to be Kaido, one of the Four Emperors.
  • Out of Focus: As the Straw Hats progress throughout the New World, they gradually encounter the other members of the Eleven Supernovas in various capacities, with occasional glimpses of their activities shown via the cover stories as well whenever they're not directly involved in the plot. Beyond a brief appearance on a Sky Island prior to Kaido's introduction, Urogue has barely appeared, tied with Bonney's crew for the supernova least shown. With Bonney meeting the Straw hats at Egghead, Urogue is the only Supernova who hasn't met them in the New World yet.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Urouge always smiles, even when he's sad or getting beaten by a Pacifista. The only times he's not seen smiling are when he's just confused by an island that's constantly spewing lightning and when he realizes that Kaido is approaching him and his crew.
  • Religious Bruiser: The monk outfit isn't just an aesthetic, Urouge does sincerely pray for other people, while still being one of the most infamous pirates of the world.
  • Telephone Polearm: Urouge fights using either his fists or a giant pillar which, according to Oda, is actually a pencil. He's looking for a suitable sharpener.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Urouge is introduced as the Supernova with the lowest bounty and in the Sabaody arc he's unable to defeat a single Pacifista but, after the time-skip, Urouge has become strong enough to take down one of Big Mom's Four Sweet Commanders.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Urouge's fighting style is unrefined and he doesn't use any particular strategy, instead, he prefers powering himself up with his Devil Fruit and using his pure strength, either through his fists or wielding a pillar.
  • Warrior Monk: Urouge is a monk and one of the stronger fighters of the series, his devil fruit giving him a brutish fighting style.
  • Winged Humanoid: Urouge originates from Bilka, a sky island, and has a pair of wings that don't allow him to fly.
