Paradise

Paradise is the first half of the Grand Line and is called this because it's much less dangerous than the New World, despite having islands already more dangerous than any of the four seas.

Reverse Mountain

    Crocus 
A lighthouse keeper as well as the caretaker of Laboon. He the first person the Straw Hats meet upon entering the Grand Line. After they help Laboon, he tells the crew how the Grand Line works and loans them a Log Pose to navigate the sea. It's later revealed he was on Roger's crew as its doctor, and more information on him can be found here.

    Laboon 

Laboon

Age: 51 (Pre-Timeskip), 53 (Post-Timeskip)

Debut: Chapter 102 (Manga), Episode 62 (Anime)

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

A huge whale who's waiting for a pirate crew he met fifty years ago to return as they promised... and has been smashing his head against the Red Line in sorrow ever since. He is cared for by a man named Crocus.
When the Straw Hats first enter the Grand Line, they encounter him and he accidentally swallows the entire Going Merry. After saving the whale from Baroque Works agents, who wanted to kill him to feed the bounty hunters of Whiskey Peak, Luffy challenges him for a quick fight and then paints his jolly roger on his head with the promise that, if it's still intact when they meet again, they'll have a rematch.
Since then, Laboon patiently waits for Luffy's return and doesn't smash his head against the Red Line anymore.


  • Beware the Nice Ones: Laboon is an oversized, friendly softie. Ships that annoy or challenge him merely get swallowed up, but piss him off proper and he'll curb-stomp you.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: After many chapters, Brook is revealed to be one of the Rumbar Pirates Laboon is waiting for. Upon hearing that Laboon is still waiting for the crew even fifty years later, Brook is determined as the only surviving (well, sorta) member to fulfill the promise to return to him.
  • Covered with Scars: From years of angrily smashing into the Red Line, Laboon's forehead is covered with scars. Luffy paints his jolly roger on the scars to prevent Laboon from hurting himself further.
  • Determinator: He's too gigantic to venture beyond the first-half of the Grand Line, so repeatedly smashes against the mountain to find his beloved Rumbar Pirates who haven't returned after decades. Crocus feared the whale would eventually kill himself in the process until Luffy is able to give Laboon hope again with the promise of a rematch fight at the condition Laboon doesn't ruin the painting on his head. Brook's flashbacks reveal Laboon was like this even as a baby whale, having followed the Rumbar Pirates to the lighthouse during a storm even after they (reluctantly) ignored him, trying to get him to return to his pod.
  • Gentle Giant: Laboon is a huge whale, but really kind.
  • Intellectual Animal: Laboon is heavily emotional and surprisingly understanding for a whale and can understand the motives behind people's actions.
  • I Will Wait for You: By the time he's introduced, he had spent the past fifty years waiting for the Rumbar Pirates to return. Luffy invokes this trope as well to prevent Laboon from hurting himself again.
  • Mysterious Animal Senses: Halfway round the world the Straw Hats find Laboon's dearest friend, Brook. Crocus comments on how Laboon seems to be in good spirits, which Laboon replies to with a triumphant roar, as if knowing that the Straw Hat Pirates and Brook will return.
  • The Promise: After engaging Laboon for a brief fight, Luffy paints a poor copy of the Straw Hats' Jolly Roger across his scars and promises Laboon that he would return to see him, under the guise of wanting a rematch, moving Laboon to tears of joy. Luffy warns Laboon that the insignia will wash away if Laboon continues hitting Reverse Mountain further, so Laboon has not hit the mountain since to keep his promise.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: At least as a baby whale, Laboon was very adorable, especially when he listens to Rumbar Pirates' music.
  • Shoo the Dog: The Rumbar Pirates tried to do this to him when they were going to enter the Grand Line by ignoring him, hoping he would return to his pod. Laboon followed them to the lighthouse anyway, so they decided to make a promise to return to him instead.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name has sometimes been spelled as "Raboon".
  • Super Toughness: He can feel pain, but due to his immense size, Laboon is resistant to most physical damage, as shown by his unrelenting headbutting of the Red Line.
  • Undying Loyalty: To the Rumbar Pirates. Even after fifty years since their departure, he still waits for them and hopes to reunite with them.
  • Womb Level: Laboon's internal anatomy is huge and complex thanks to Crocus operating it to take care of him. The Going Merry spends some chapters in his stomach, where the Straw Hats meet Crocus.

Little Garden

An island where time is stuck into prehistoric age, and is populated by dinosaurs and extinct mammals. The only inhabitants are two giants, Dorry and Broggy, who have been living there for one hundred years to settle a dispute. It's also the reason this island is called such, because, compared to the giants, the island is a little garden.

    Dorry and Broggy 

Dorry Voiced by: Daisuke Gōri (JP), Bob Carter (EN, Funi), Héctor Moreno (Netflix) (Latin American Spanish)
Broggy Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (JP), Jonathan C. Osborne (EN, Funi), Mauricio Pérez (Netflix) (Latin American Spanish)

Dorry's Age: 158 (Pre-Timeskip), 160 (Post-Timeskip)
Broggy's Age: 158 (Pre-Timeskip), 160 (Post-Timeskip)

Dorry's Debut: Chapter 116 (Manga), Episode 71 (Anime)
Broggy's Debut: Chapter 115 (Manga), Episode 71 (Anime)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dorry_anime.png
Dorry
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brogy_anime.png
Broggy

Two giants who reside on Little Garden from the land of Elbaf. They have been fighting each other for years, so long in fact they have forgotten what they've been fighting about. It was over who caught the biggest fish.

They each have a bounty of 100,000,000 berries. They jointly hold one record for the oldest known active bounties, as they've both been wanted for over 100 years.


  • An Axe to Grind: Broggy's weapon of choice is a huge axe.
  • Badass Beard: As befitting of Viking-style warriors, they have long beards. The beards reflect their weapons, with Broggy's being short and shaped like an axe's blade, while Dorry's is very long like his sword.
  • Battle Aura: They both get one in the anime while using their special attack (see below). Dorry's is blue, Broggy's is red.
  • BFS: Dorry's weapon of choice is a sword longer than his own arm.
  • Big Fun: Broggy, both figuratively and literally, is rounder than Broggy and a bit more joyful.
  • Forever War: Because both are about equal in strength, every duel ends in a draw, therefore they've been fighting for well over a century with no signs of stopping. Even after their weapons break due to how consumed they are, they continue their eternal series of duels with their fist.
  • Friendly Enemy: They are best friends, and their endless, constant duels hasn't changed that. Mr. 3's plan gets going because Broggy got some booze from the Straw Hats and wanted to share it with Dorry.
  • Honor Before Reason: The two are willing to fight what amounts to an endless duel for a reason that neither of them can remember. According to them, the reason doesn't matter. This is a matter of HONOR!
  • Horny Vikings: Their culture is based on the vikings and Broggy wears a horned helmet.
  • Made of Iron: Dorry shrugged off an explosion from inside his stomach.
  • Offscreen Inertia: Cover stories always shows them engaged in their epic battle, implying that neither of them has managed to come out victorious.
  • Our Giants Are Bigger: They're part of the giants from the village of Elbaf and as such they are proud warriors. Notably, they represent the proper introduction of the giant race in One Piece.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: They come from the village of Elbaf, whose inhabitants place a lot of emphasis and pride in being a warrior. Dorry and Broggy are no exception and their duels have a strict sense of honor: they only duel when smoke hail from the volcano and never use a dirty trick. Dorry even engaged the duel despite having just drank a barrel full of explosives, and Broggy is displeased to learn to have won thanks to an unfair advantage.
  • Razor Wind: HAKOKU!!!
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: According to their epithets, Dorry is the blue and Broggy the red. Subverted though since their personalities are similar.
  • Running Gag: Every time the two giants are revisited in a cover story, it shows that the never-ending battle is still going on, with nothing having changed except that they're using their bare fists after the loss of their weapons at the end of Little Garden Arc. They're still so evenly matched that each battle seems to end in a Double Knockout.
  • Signature Laugh: They each have a distinctive laugh.
    • Dorry: "Gegyagyagyagya!"
    • Broggy: "Gebabababababa!"
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite only appearing in a single story arc, they end up giving Usopp the inspiration to become a strong warrior of the sea and one day seek out Elbaf. Their subordinates Oimo and Kashi are pressganged into being gate guards for Enies Lobby in exchange for Dorry and Broggy's freedom, and Usopp revealing that he knows they're still on Enies Lobby caused them to do a Heel–Face Turn and help the Straw Hats.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Their names have been spelt "Dorey and Brogey" and loads of other variations.
  • Sword Beam: Hakoku, a blast created using all of their physical power that cuts through anything in its path. This is what finally destroys their aged weapons after a hundred years of dueling.
  • Tears of Joy: Subverted. Broggy, when it looks like he's finally won their decades-long duel, is crying, which Mr. 3 assumes is from joy in his victory. The reality is that Broggy is mourning the death of his best friend.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: They are still best friends and actually quite chummy with one another when they aren't fighting.

Sakura Kingdom

A kingdom in a snowy island, where the greatest doctors in the world reside. When the Straw Hats arrive, it's called "Drum Kingdom" because the mountain at the centre of the island has a flat top, making it look like a drum. The kingdom was attacked by the nascent Blackbeard Pirates, sending the king Wapol and his followers packing out of cowardice, and it changes its name to the Sakura Kingdom to honor the late Dr. Hiriluk after Dalton becomes the new king.

    Dr. Kureha 

Dr. Kureha

Voiced by: Masako Nozawa (JP), Maddie Blaustein (EN, 4Kids), Julie Mayfield (EN, Funi); Erika Mireles (4Kids), Laura Torres (Netflix) (Latin-American Spanish)

Age: 139 (Pre-Timeskip), 141 (Post-Timeskip)

Debut: Chapter 134 (Manga), Episode 80 (Anime)

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

Drum's number one doctor, also called "Witch". Is a lively old woman who lives in the royal castle. She adopted Chopper after Hiriluk's demise and taught him her medical knowledge.


  • Ax-Crazy: The lengths she'll go to hurt you if you anger her are insane.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Even at her age, she exposes her belly button.
  • Berserk Button: You better not call her "old", unless you want to get kicked across the room.
  • The Bus Came Back: After a long absence from the main story, she reappears in the Whole Cake Island arc as Dalton is heading to the Reverie; she joins as his doctor, much to his shock.
  • Butter Face: A Running Gag with her is that upon meeting her, people are often stunned by how beautiful her body looks. Then they see her face.
  • Catchphrase: "Ya happy?"
  • Cool Old Lady: She's a world class doctor, and regards Chopper like a son (not that you'd know it)
  • Cool Shades: Often wears shades in her cooler moments.
  • Could Say It, But...: Her policy is that her patients are only allowed to leave after they have made a full recovery. After the Straw Hats have saved the island from Wapol and Nami's illness was on the mend though not fully cured, she continues to refuse to let Nami leave but explains that she now has to go take care of something and will be leaving the door unlocked.
  • Dr. Jerk: God help you if you try to defy her medical orders. It's mostly in the interest of her patients. Mostly.
  • Hammerspace: Where she gets the stuff she can chuck at people from. She can even throw chickens at them!
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Essentially this. She's genuinely interested in helping people, and willingly took on Chopper as a student when Hiriluk (whom she otherwise regarded as a quack) died. She cries when he leaves (in between chucking battleaxes at him) and is pleased to know he's doing well when he gets a wanted poster (though she hopes the 50 Beli is a mistake)
  • Knife Nut:
    • She uses dissection blades as her main weapon, when she's not busy breaking stone walls by kicking them hard.
    • Or when she's not throwing an army's worth of medieval weaponry at you.
  • Long-Lived: She's over a hundred years old.
  • Never Mess with Granny: She may be an old woman but that doesn't stop her from going medieval on your ass if you piss her off.
  • Non Action Girl: During the fight against Wapol's goons she states that she'll take part to the fight only if they need her help.
  • Ms. Exposition:
    • Subverted. She was the first person in the series to mention the mysterious "Will of D", but she never elaborated it.
    • Played straight in regards to Chopper's backstory, as she explains it to Nami and by extension the audience.
  • Older Than They Look: She's actually 139 (141 after timeskip) years young.
  • Parental Substitute: Kureha is the closest thing Chopper has to a mother figure.
  • Running Gag: She often asks people if they want to know the secret for her age and young looks. Nobody is interested.
    • More like interrupting any question as if THAT is what they wanted to ask. They quickly correct her, apparently fearing the answer.
    • Another one is people mistaking her for a young woman until they see her Butter Face.
  • Silver Fox: Despite being more than a century old, she's does not look all that bad except maybe the Butter Face.
  • So Proud of You: Done very subtly. Her shirt when she shows up at Reverie has Chopper's bounty printed on it.
  • Tap on the Head: Her preferred method of anesthesia: have Chopper give the patient a concussion.
  • Tsundere: She cries when Chopper leaves the castle (after chasing him with knives and all, mind you).
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She scolds Chopper after his first use of Monster Point, calling him out on the destruction he wrought and saying that it is his responsibility as an aspiring doctor to be careful.

    Dalton 

Dalton

Voiced by: Kenichi Ono (JP), Ted Lewis (EN, 4Kids), J. Michael Tatum (EN, Funi); Dafnis Fernández (4Kids, 1st voice), Ricardo Bautista (4Kids, 2nd Voice), Javier Otero (3rd Voice, Netflix) (Latin-American Spanish)

Devil Fruit: Ox-Ox Fruit Model: Bison

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

"Because there's no cure for a fool!"

The leader, now king, of Drum Island. He was once a guard under Wapol and regretted every minute of it. He has eaten the Ox-Ox Fruit (Ushi Ushi no Mi) Model: Bison.


  • The Atoner: He hated working under Wapol, and made sure to make up for it however possible, even before becoming King.
  • Badass Beard: One fitting a man of his power and stature.
  • The Beastmaster: After the Time Skip, it's shown in a cover story that he uses the Lapahns as troops, so he's definitely developing shades of this.
  • Brought Down to Normal: For some reason, Movie 9 didn't include his Devil Fruit.
  • The Bus Came Back: After a long absence from the main story, he cameos at the start of the Whole Cake Island arc as he and several other kings and royal families make their way to the Reverie, and makes a full return in the Reverie Arc itself.
  • Commonality Connection: Rebecca, Shirahoshi, and the Tontatta dwarves are quick to bond with him over their shared friendship with Luffy.
  • Heroic Build: Tall and bulky, especially considering how Muscles Are Meaningless in this series.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: He considers himself something of a failure over how long it took him to oppose Wapol and his lack of success when he does. The people of Drum, on the other hand, elect him king of the new Sakura Kingdom.
  • Improbable Weapon User: A large spade.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Fast enough to dodge gunfire and strong enough to overpower Chopper.
  • A Load of Bull: His power allows him to become a bison.
  • Manly Tears: Hiriluk's speech at Drum Castle brings him to tears as the doctor's words hammer home exactly how bad the country has become.
  • Nice Guy: So nice, he'll tell you trivia about himself without you having to ask.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: His Devil Fruit allows him to mop the floor with plain soldiers, but the flashback shows that Wapol's "Ultimate Weapon" form was too much for him.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: To the point that he really prefers not being called a King at all.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: In the Reverie Arc, Wapol tries taunting and insulting him again. Dalton's having none of it, and threateningly reminds his former king that they're now on equal footing.
  • Taking the Bullet: He's willing to do this for the citizens of Drum, to the point that when they meet again Chess doesn't even try to fight him and just shoots at some ordinary people.
  • Token Good Teammate: When Wapol was still king, he was only member of his troops who cared about the citizens of the kingdom.

    Dr. Hiriluk 

Dr. Hiriluk

Voiced by: Shigeru Ushiyama (JP), Frank Guida (EN, 4Kids), Mark Stoddard (EN, Funi); Jesús Cortez (4kids), Eduardo Tejedo (Netflix) (Latin American Spanish)

Age: 68

Debut: Chapter 141 (Manga), Episode 85 (Anime)

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

"When does a man die? Is it when he's shot in the heart with a pistol? No. When he's stricken with a deadly disease? No. When he eats soup... ...made from a deadly mushroom? No!!! It's when... ...he is forgotten!! I may disappear, but my dream will live on. And the ailing hearts of the people will be healed."

A quack doctor from Drum island who plays a pivotal role in Chopper's life. Hiriluk spent a large portion of his life as a thief, until he was diagnosed with a terminal illness. While wandering in West Blue, he stumbled upon a grove of cherry trees he found incredibly beautiful, and was seemingly miraculously healed. Invigorated with a new belief that every disease can be cured, he returned to his home country with the mission to heal its ills by raising people's spirits; his ultimate goal is to cause a cherry tree blossom on the island, evoking the image of the cherry trees that healed him. Unfortunately, his lack of training means most of his medical interventions causes more harm than good, and you can't have a cherry tree blossom in a winter island...

After finding Chopper abandoned by both humans and reindeer, Hiriluk brings him home and becomes his mentor and father figure. After his old disease returns, Chopper attempts to cure him with a mushroom soup, not knowing it's poisonous. Hiriluk realises this but drinks it anyway. He's then tricked by King Wapol into a lethal trap, but he decides to blow himself up with one of his own medicines after giving a last, touching speech that would spark an eventual revolution within the country.

After Wapol is defeated, Kureha uses his final invention: a pink powder that turns the snow pink like cherry petals. This finally fulfils the old man's dreams of healing his birthplace, and the citizens of the Drum Kingdom are moved to renaming their country to "Sakura Kingdom" in celebration of their freedom.


  • ...And That Little Boy Was Me: He explains his doctoring philosophy to Chopper through a familiar story about a life long thief who was diagnosed with an incurable terminal disease, and one day witnessed a cherry blossom bloom so beautiful it seemingly cured his disease on the spot. Of course, Dr. Kureha later reveals the criminal was Dr. Hiriluk and it didn't actually cure him, though it did seem to cause the disease to go into remission for decades.
  • Back-Alley Doctor: The Drum Kingdom (later Sakura Kingdom) used to be renowned for having the best doctors in the entire One Piece World. Hiriluk is not among them and is a terrible doctor whose self-made medicines cause more harm than good, indeed, he's the only doctor to not have been captured by Wapol, besides Kureha.
  • Better to Die than Be Killed: Rather than being killed by Chopper's poisonous mushroom (making Chopper guilty of his death) or being shot by Wapol's soldiers, Hiriluk drinks an explosive potion that blows him up.
  • Break His Heart to Save Him: When Hiriluk's condition worsens and Kureha tells him he has only a few days left, he chases Chopper out of his home, to spare him from watching his surrogate father die of illness. Later, Chopper learns from Kureha about hiriluk's condition and decides to help him.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Or Chronic Doctor Syndrome. After Wapol has forced all doctors to remain in his service, he continued to offer his services door-to-door. Unfortunately, since Hiriluk is a terrible doctor, no one wants any part of it.
  • Comically Inept Healing: In One Piece fashion, his attempts to heal people with frog livers cause them to act like frogs.
  • Cool Old Guy: Hiruluk's starts Chopper's medical training and instills in him his generous and kind spirit, all in his older years.
  • Doomed Moral Victor: Discussed in his last speech. Whole Wapol has Hiriluk at gunpoint, the latter comments that a man doesn't die from a terminal disease, eating a poisonous soup or a gunshot, but only when' he's forgotten. Indeed, even after his death, Hiruluk's actions get the better over Wapol and his special powder heals the disease of the Drum Kingdom.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: After giving one of the most heartwarming speeches in the series, while held at gunpoint by a soldier squad, Hiriluk drinks an explosive potion so that he won't die from Chopper's poisonous Mushroom, and makes a toast to his surrogate son, thanking him for a wonderful life.
  • Face Death with Dignity: After his legendary speech about "a man never dies until he's forgotten", Hiriluk smiles as he make a toast for his life and Chopper, and blows himself up.
  • Foil: To Kureha. They're the last two doctors of the Drum kingdom after Wapol forces the remaining ones to live in his caslte. Hiruluk is idealistic and altruistic but completely incompetent, while Kureha is highly skilled but cynical. They also serve as mentors for Chopper, with Hiriluk passing on his ideals, and Kureha passing on her medical skills.
  • Heroic Suicide: After Chopper goes through a lot of trouble and danger to bring Hiriluk a mushroom to make a soup for his terminal illness, not knowing it's actually a poisonous one. Hiriluk recognizes the mushroom but eats the soup anyway rather than telling his surrogate son that all of his troubles were for nothing. The poisoned amiudake mushroom hastens his demise, then he falls into a trap after hearing that the 20 Doctors are ill and Hiriluk drinks his failed potion to die on his terms. The explosion completely obliterates him, leaving nothing behind but his hat, which blows down to Chopper and allows him to realize that Hiriluk had died.
  • High Hopes, Zero Talent: Despite his passion for medicine, his treatments generally do more harm than good. His pink powder, however, does heal the hearts of the former Drum Kingdom's inhabitants, inspiring them to rename it the Sakura Kingdom.
  • I Regret Nothing: Before drinking a potion that blows him up, Hiriluk says he lived a wonderful life and thanks Chopper for it.
  • Immortality Through Memory: Right before committing his Heroic Suicide, Hiriluk declared his belief that a man only truly dies when they are forgotten, rather than when they are physically killed. Indeed, Hiriluk's ideals live in Chopper and his actions "heal" the Drum Kingdom years after his death, thanks to Kureha who realizes his dream.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: His hair is shaped like a medical cross as a visual clue to him being a doctor.
  • Interspecies Adoption: Hiriluk is a human and adopts Chopper (a reindeer with a Devil Fruit) as his son after finding him injured and treating his wounds.
  • Lured into a Trap: Shortly after eating Chopper's mushroom, Hiriluk hears that the twenty Doctors are ill and rushes to help. It's a lie made by Wapol to lure out the two rogue doctors, and Hiriluk ends up facing off against a squad of soldiers ready to execute him. However, Hiriluk laughs it off and claims that he's happy to find out that the doctors are actually fine.
  • Mad Scientist: Unlike most examples, Hiriluk is actually benevolent, but he's a terrible doctor and his medicines make people even more sick. Most of his chemical experiments tend to end with a huge explosion, and he recycles them to make actual explosives.
  • Made of Explodium: A lot of his failed concoctions tends to blow up and, while naturally useless as medicines, Hiriluk uses them as bombs. As his last act, Hiriluk prepares an explosive drink to blow himself up, so that he won't be killed by Chopper's poisonous mushroom or Wapol's soldiers.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Hiriluk is Chopper's first mentor and father figure, and blows himself up in front of Wapol. His death brings Chopper under Kureha's wing, where he learns all that he knows about medicine.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a nice black hat to go along with his coat. He also owns another nice pink hat with a cross, which he gives to Chopper.
  • Nudity Equals Honesty: When he finds an injured Chopper in the storm, Hiriluk tries to help him. Chopper doesn't trust him, so Hiriluk strips all his clothing in the freezing cold to show the reindeer that he has nothing to conceal, he only wants to help.
  • Parental Substitute: Hiriluk is a father figure to Chopper, having adopted him after finding him in a blizzard, and teaches the reindeer his own moral code.
  • Posthumous Character: Hiriluk is dead for years by the time the Straw Hats reach Drum Island, but his wishes are inherited by Chopper and motivate him to fight Wapol and eventually join the Straw Hats.
  • Rasputinian Death: He was inflicted with a terminal illness that would kill him within days, then ate a soup made of amiudake mushroom, a lethal poison, but still lived long enough to blow himself up.
  • Reformed Criminal: Hiriluk used to be a thief, until he got ill and was cured by a wonderful sight of cherry blossoms. Since that day, Hiriluk dedicated his life to healing people.
  • Signature Laugh: Hiruluk's laugh is Eh eh eh!' Chopper later mimics his laugh.
  • Unwanted Assistance: The people of the Drum Kingdom don't like his help as he usually makes their ailments worse.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Kureha. She regards him as a quack, but also give him medicine to prolong his life and, after he dies, takes his special powder and Chopper under her wing.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Suffered from a terminal illness that returns shortly after adopting Chopper, and Kureha diagnoses him a few days to live. Chopper learns of this and tries to heal it with a mushroom soup, not knowing the mushroom is poisonous. Hiriluk willingly eats the soup, further shortening his remaining time, to thank Chopper for his care.

    Bliking Pirates

Chess
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kuromarimo_anime_concept_art.png
Kuromarimo

This crew is actually composed of the former soldiers of the Drum Kingdom under Wapol's rule. Its elite members are Chess and Kuromarimo who were former advisors. In the ninth movie, Musshuru, Wapol's elder brother is introduced. Later, Chess and Kuromarimo are "merged" by Wapol in the warrior Chessmarimo.

After the timeskip, Wapol's pirate crew has given way to the Evil Black Drum Kingdom in the South Blue.

For Wapol himself, see Blue Seas.


  • Achilles' Heel: Chessmarimo's chin is a weak spot that Chopper's Rumble Ball-enhanced Brain Point identifies.
  • Adapted Out: Chessmarimo in Episode of Chopper, as Wapol merges with his own brother instead.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Chess, and Kuromarimo. According to Dr. Kureha, this trope is the only reason the people of Drum couldn't rebel when the great doctor hunt began.
  • Death by Adaptation: In Episode of Chopper, Chess and Kuromarimo are last shown knocked out by Musshuru's poison spore, implicitly killing them.
  • Dual Wielding: Chessmarimo wields four axes at once.
  • Fusion Dance: Invoked by Chessmarimo, who claims to be a Super Soldier produced by Chess and Kuromarimo being eaten by Wapol and fused together thanks to his Munch-Munch Fruit power. Subverted because, as a disappointed Luffy points out, "Chessmarimo" is just Kuromarimo riding on Chess' back with the latter's clothes being worn over him.
  • Gonk: Chess barely looks human at all with his attire and face.
  • Kick the Dog: During Dalton's attack, Chess willingly shoots a volley of arrows at some incoming villagers, knowing full well that Dalton will shield them.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Chessmarimo was shown using bows, hammers and axes in battle.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Chess is certainly an odd looking fellow dressed as a jester, but he's definitely one of the more serious minded people in Wapol's crew. When he, Kuromarimo, and Dalton were serving as advisors to Wapol pre-banishment: Kuromarimo would drink, but Chess would give Dalton an unemotive speech on how the people are inherently weak and deserve to be oppressed.
  • Playing with Fire: Chess often uses fire arrows.
  • Razor Wind: Chessmarimo can do this with axes.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Crosses with Dirty Coward. Once the Blackbeard Pirates came a knocking, they all fled Drum Island. They returned later, and were kicked out again by the Straw Hats this time.
  • Terrible Trio: Wapol, Chess, and Kuromarimo fashioned themselves as these.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Chessmarimo delivered one to Chopper, but it didn't work.
  • Voice of the Legion: Chessmarimo's voice sounds like Chess and Kuromarimo talking together. In the manga, this effect is given through the use of overlapping letters.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Robson and Chessmarimo's fates after being sent flying and being defeated respectively are entirely unknown. For what it's worth, Episode of Chopper shows Robson having crashed in a snowbank while Chess and Kuromarimo get a cameo in One Piece Stampede where they accompany Wapol.


Jaya

An island that was once skull-shaped and populated by Shandians until the Knock-Up Stream sent part of it to the clouds. In the current day, the island is home to the hedonistic pirate harbor Mocktown, where dreams are mocked and the only things of value are materialistic wealth and strength.

Saruyama Alliance (Monkey Mountain Allied Force)

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

A small alliance composed by two pirate crews and a former pirate, Montblanc Cricket, the descendant of the legendary seafarer Montblanc Noland, whose supposed "lie" about an island full of gold led to his execution by his king and the continuous shaming of his descendants. Cricket is allied with Masira and Shoujou, two brothers and fans of Noland's tales stick out with the old man who wants to prove that his ancestor was right. Their main activity is to look at the bottom of the sea to retrieve treasures in the hope of finding the gold, but Noland eventually understands that the gold may have been sent upward.

After Eneru's defeat, the sound of the bell heard on the island proves that Noland was saying the truth.


  • Ascended Fanboy: Masira and Shoujou who were fans of the Noland tale. So helping his descendant was a dream come true
  • Berserk Button: Masira at first is quite friendly towards Luffy and co, but goes (literally) apeshit when he finds out that they were already looting the sunken ship they were on.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Masira is strong enough to one shot a sea monster with one blow.
  • Combat Pragmatist: After going melee on Sanji and having his punch blocked, he swiftly pulls out a pistol and shoots.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: When attacked by Bellamy's crew they stomps them with ease, but receive a particularly painful beatdown from Bellamy himself, who is too fast for them.
  • Gonk: Masira and Shoujou both look more like apes than they look like humans. However, they enjoy looking like that.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: All of them, though Montblanc Cricket stands out.
  • Made of Iron: All of them took an absolute ass-kicking courtesy of the Bellamy Pirates, but as soon as they were bandaged up, they started working on the Going Merry again. Usopp lampshaded this.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Shoujou can use his voice as a sonar and can wreak havoc on the surroundings with his sound waves.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: Shoujou discuss this trope when he wonders how could someone as small and skinny as Luffy kick the ass of someone big and strong like Masira.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Shoujou claims to have never had a haircut in his life. It shows.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Shoujo wonders if he could replace Crocodile as one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. Since he gets curb-stomped by Bellamy, of all people, he's clearly nowhere near the strength level of a typical Warlord (besides Buggy), and with a bounty of 36,000,000 Berries his threat level isn't considered to be overly high by Grand Line standards either.
  • Taking the Bullet: Masira shields Cricket from Sarquiss' Big Chop attack.
  • Visual Pun: Masira's name comes from the old word for monkey (mashira), and both him and Shoujou (Orangutan) resemble their respective animals, and at Shoujou's sail there's written a word "morinohito" which translates to "manusia hutan" or "orang hutan" (yes, that's where the name of the ape came from) in Indonesian.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Shoujou's hair is green (and super long).

    Mont Blanc Cricket 

Mont Blanc Cricket

Voiced by: Takashi Taniguchi, Naoya Uchida (Episode of Sky Island) (JP), George Manley (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/213810.jpg
A lonely man who lives in a small home in Jaya. He's the descendant of Mont Blanc Noland, who is famous in the North Blue for being considered a great liar.
  • The Atoner: The Mont Blanc's family has been mocked by everyone because of their ancestor, Mont Blanc Noland, who is believed to have been a big liar and there's even a tale about him. Cricket wants to prove that his ancestor was not a liar and clean his family's reputation. After he hears the sound of the bell, Crickets understands Noland wasn't a liar and is relieved.
  • Badass Normal: Even though he hasn't eaten a devil fruit, Cricket is a very strong fighter.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Cricket fights using a martial art similar to the Monkey Kung Fu, going with the Saruyama Alliance's monkey theme.
  • Determinator: After stumbling into Jaya, Cricket decided to remain there to find proof that the city of gold, Shandora, really does exists and his ancestor wasn't a liar. Years later, in the present, he hasn't stopped the search, claiming he doesn't care if Noland was actually a liar and the city of gold didn't exist, as long as he could find the truth and settle the matter. All of his efforts pay off when he hears the bell, which is proof that Shandora actually exists and Noland wasn't a liar.
  • Hereditary Hairstyle: Exaggerated. As an indicator of being related to Noland, who lived centuries ago, Cricket has the same chestnut-shaped hair as his ancestor.
  • Like a Son to Me: Masira and Shoujou met Cricket five years before the Skypiea arc and became his followers after learning of his family name, being fans of Mont Blanc Noland. Over time, Cricket grew to see them as his own sons.
  • Retired Badass: Cricket was the captain of a pirate crew until he stumbled into Jaya, the island in which his ancestor found the city of gold, and remained there to find proof that Noland wasn't a liar. When the Straw Hats meet him, he's living retired in a small house.
  • Visual Pun: The chestnut on his head is a nod to the Montblanc cake, a french sweet made with chestnuts.

Bellamy Pirates

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/drapeau_equipage_bellamy_la_hyene.jpg

A crew of "new age" pirates who no longer believe in dreams and adventures, but only in loot and gold. They were once part of the Warlord Doflamingo's crew.


  • All There in the Manual: A databook later revealed the other member's names, but they still aren't important enough to warrant their own entries.
  • BFS: Sarquiss' "Big Knife", which earned him his nickname.
  • Bus Crash: It's implied that the rest of the crew, besides Bellamy, did not survive the trip to Skypeia. Recall Gan Fall's remarks that unlike the all-or-nothing Knock-Up Stream route, the other ways to Sky Island always take a few lives...
  • Childhood Friends: They grew up together, according to a Vivre Card Databook.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: They utterly destroyed the poor members of the Saruyama Alliance.
  • Delinquents: Essentially a pirate variant, being young, shallow, and arrogant bullies who left their prosperous, safe hometown because they found it boring.
  • The Dragon: Sarquiss, for Bellamy.
  • Dumb Muscle: Bellamy. To be fair, though, no one in the crew seems particularly bright.
  • Fur and Loathing: Sarquiss, not a very nice man, wears what looks like a fur coat.
  • The Hyena: Bellamy's epithet is this, and he likes to cackle and laugh. Not so much post-Timeskip, though.
  • Jerkass: Every single pirate in the crew are assholes just like their captain.
  • Kukris Are Kool: Sarqueiss' Weapon of Choice.
  • Mugging the Monster:
    • They mock the Straw Hats, call them weak and pathetic, and even rob their new friends. Big mistake on that last one.
    • Sarquiss intentionally bumps into Blackbeard and viciously insults his weight and even threatens him. Teach casually smashes his face into the ground, knocking him out on the spot.
  • Red Baron: Bellamy The Hyena and Big Knife Sarquiss.
  • Smug Snake: All of them think way too high of themselves for their own good.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Sarquiss, Sarkees, etc...
  • Stupid Evil: The entire crew, but especially Bellamy. It's precisely what causes him to run afoul of Donquixote Doflamingo.
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    • See the Mugging the Monster example above.
    • Also, did Bellamy honestly think that being a sociopathic jackass wasn't eventually going to attract the attention of and piss off his boss?
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The fate of the crew after Doflamingo dismisses them is fairly vague. Bellamy mentions he lost his friends on his trip to Sky Island, but whether this means they died or parted ways is unknown.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Sarquiss literally has blue hair in the anime.

    Bellamy "The Hyena" 

Bellamy "The Hyena"

Voiced by: Wataru Takagi (JP), Andrew Rannells (EN, 4Kids), Justin Cook (EN, Funi)

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

Debut: Chapter 222 (Manga), Episode 146 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Spring-Spring Fruit

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

"The Lost city of Gold!? The Emerald city!? The great Treasure of "One Piece"!? The fools who go looking for their "dream treasure" cannot notice what's in front of them! In this era of the sea, the ones that do not have real strength... are the ones that are killed by their own imaginations!"

A local pirate who's part of Doflamingo's Pirates, nominally filling in as the captain of the Belamy Pirates, given that Doflamingo seemed rather uninterested in leading his crew. Looking for information on Skypiea, Luffy runs into Bellamy while in Jaya. Extremly arrogant, he believes that there will come an era where pirates give up on having, as well as pursuing their dreams, going after material treasure instead of traveling the sea for the adventure of it. Bellamy mocks anyone who states otherwise and is very quick to start a fight. However, it's this mindset that ultimately proves to be his downfall. He has eaten the Spring-Spring Fruit (Bane Bane no Mi) which allows him to transform his legs into springs, making him a Bouncing Battler with incredible jumping power.

When Luffy joins the tournament in the Corrida Colosseum Bellamy is revealed to be alive and well, and still under the employment of Doflamingo. Unfortunately for him, he finds out that Doflamingo doesn't care about him. After the events of Dressrosa, he retires from piracy and settles down to become a dyer.

His first bounty was 55,000,000 Berries. Post-timeskip, it has risen to 195,000,000 Berries.


  • All for Nothing: As a child, Bellamy started his career in piracy to escape the monotony of wealthy civilian life for an exciting one and earn the respect of his pirate idol: Donquixote Doflamingo. Bellamy's largely troubled run as a pirate ultimately ends on bitter terms with his old friends presumably dead and realizing what a monster Doflamingo is, and he willingly returns to quiet civilian life.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Post-Timeskip Bellamy is basically rejected by his Idol, Doflamingo, who sends someone to kill him, and when Bellamy survives, Doflamingo personally curbstomps him so hard that several chapters later he is STILL face-down on the ground, and looks utterly miserable. And then Doflamingo controls him to fight Luffy.
  • Anti-Villain: Much like Gin early in the series, despite realizing that his boss cares nil about him, Bellamy remains loyal to Doflamingo throughout the entirety of the Dressosa arc. It's only after Doflamingo's defeat that Bellamy finally undergoes a full Heel–Face Turn. Note that in his first appearance, he's a full-blown villain.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: He's on the Grand Line, which frequently screws with physics and natural law so often that it's to be expected, yet doesn't believe in the possibility of an island in the sky. After the timeskip, Bellamy loses this trait, especially since he's actually been to said island in the sky, which changed his world-view considerably.
  • Arc Villain: For the minor Jaya arc, he's seen as equally minor as he's just beaten by a single hit.
  • Bouncing Battler: His main style.
  • Break the Haughty: After Luffy takes him out in one punch Bellamy lessens his ego considerably and in their next encounter he's not the arrogant prick of his first appearance.
  • Broken Pedestal: After overhearing Diamante confirm that he was ordered to be killed. Bellamy starts breaking down that Doflamingo, the man he revered so much, thinks nothing of him.
  • Broken Tears: When he realizes that Dellinger is not kidding when he said that Doflamingo wants him dead, and later when he receives a physical and verbal beatdown from the man himself.
  • Bullying a Dragon: In his first appearance, he needlessly and continuously antagonizes The Straw Hats until he basically forces Luffy to kick his ass.
  • The Bus Came Back: He was completely absent from the story after being overpowered by Doflamingo until a whopping 401 chapters later, surprising the entire audience.
  • Can't Catch Up: While he's not weak by any means, and is significantly stronger than in his debut, Bellamy's story in Dressrosa illustrates he cannot compete with the series' escalating cast of powerhouses. Furthermore, after losing his calling as a pirate once he is finally through with Doflamingo, Bellamy retires from piracy.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: "You're mad that I stole gold from that old timer? I'm a pirate!"
  • Character Development: Goes from a complete jerkass to a nicer and less arrogant person after the timeskip.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Post-timeskip, he has no interest in fighting clean and has shown a knack for viciously maiming people, something best displayed in his fight with Abdullah and Jeet.
  • Cool Shades: He wears one after the Time Skip, but only briefly.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: By and far one of the most iconic moments of the series, when Luffy flat out lays him out with one hit. You can argue this would make him an Anticlimax Boss. But really, for someone of his character, it was really all he needed.
    • And Luffy delivers one to him again during the final battle of Dressrosa, and in the exact same fashion, to boot (only this time Luffy used Haki because Bellamy used it, too). Bellamy did get some hits in this time, but only because Luffy was reluctant to attack him; once he leaves him with no choice, however...
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: His basic appearance.
  • Death Seeker: His thoughts to himself during his and Luffy's final battle reveal that he does recognize that following Doflamingo was the wrong choice; rather, he keeps attacking Luffy because he wants him to just kill him already, which he feels will bring him resolution. Needless to say, Luffy became extremely enraged at Doflamingo for driving him to this point.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Yelled practically verbatim to Luffy when, freed from Doflamingo's control, he pushes himself to perform Spring Hopper, even when it's clear he could die if his body's pushed too far.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: After the events of Dressossa, he peacefully retires to become a dyed goods craftsman.
  • Face Palm Of Doom: First thing he's shown doing post-timeskip.
  • Foil: Curiously enough, to Trafalgar Law. Both joined the Donquixote Pirates with a thirst for destruction and had held Doflamingo in high esteem, although the similarities end there. Law's traumatic childhood was the driving force of his motivations, while Bellamy was bored with his life as the town terror and wanted the fame and excitement that came with a life of piracy. Doflamingo saw tremendous potential in Law, pouring endless resources into his formal education and entrusting his executive officers with training him. He went so far as to reserve the coveted Heart seat for him and leaving it empty in the years following his defection, making it clear Law was always welcome to rejoin the family whenever he pleased. In a sharp contrast, Bellamy's position in the family was always shaky and despite his respectable bounty he remained a mere expendable thug, belittled by the Family, and he constantly had his desperate wish to someday become an executive officer dangled in his face. He was even under threat of expulsion from Doflamingo's crew if he was defeated in battle, drawing the distinction between the two even further.
  • Glass Cannon: Capable of hitting like a truck, but he sure can't take much punishment.
  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: He noticeably has much larger, rounder eyes than most other antagonists.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He first appeared with a scar on the side of his head. After Doflamingo attacked him, Bellamy picked up a second scar (presumably caused by Doflamingo's attempt to butcher him).
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam:
    • Set up for a Heel–Face Turn throughout the Dressrosa Arc, but then Defied during the final battle. After Doflamingo beats him to near death, mocks him, and forces him to fight Luffy against his will, Luffy naturally tries to save him. But as soon as he's free from Mingo's control, he actually decides to fight Luffy on his own will, refusing to turn on his once beloved idol. Luffy reasons that Doflamingo is not worth fighting over, but Bellamy attacks him anyway. This marks one of the first times Luffy's Magnetic Hero tendencies didn't work.
    • It's also played with in the sense that Bellamy is still grateful to Luffy for still calling him a friend in spite of everything and for agreeing to fight him in the end. If it weren't for his principles and his pride not allowing him to turn against a man who was never deserving of his loyalty, there is no doubt he would have accepted Luffy's help.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After the aforementioned door slam, Bellamy does make an actual Heel–Face Turn after Doflamingo is defeated; he and Luffy part on good terms, and even though Bellamy refuses to be Luffy's subordinate, he still requested a piece of Luffy's Vivre Card, just in case.
  • Honor Before Reason: His reason that he's still fighting on behalf of Doflamingo despite being exposed to his atrocities multiple times is that he's so indebted to Doffy that he will not go against him.
  • The Hyena: It's not just his nickname, he's also known for his mocking laugh.
  • I Let You Win: His first encounter with Luffy was this simply because Luffy had promised Nami not to fight (Especially over something so meaningless as a matter of opinion on dreams). However, when Bellamy attacked Cricket and his crew, he made a very big mistake there.
  • Jerkass: Easily one of the more notable ones in the series, with his Establishing Character Moment being stabbing Roshio the Executioner in the hand with a knife, then tossing him out the window, before killing him... Over a game of poker to which he states he cheated. To make it worse, he wasn't even cheating in the first place.
    • Has mellowed out considerably after the time skip, to the point where he actually tells Luffy he won't laugh at him anymore. He also says he doesn't hold a grudge against Luffy. And actually appears to be sad after Doflamingo assigns him the task of assassinating Luffy. Not scared because of Luffy still being stronger, but sad at the idea of killing somebody he's come to respect.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: His debut murder of Roshio might seem harsh, but Roshio was a known psychopath that murdered someone for the same reason Bellamy killed him. That reason being, of course, losing fairly in a card game.
  • Ki Manipulation: Capable of Armament Haki post-timeskip.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He gets beat down twice, by Luffy and then Doflamingo, and had it coming both times.
  • Lightning Bruiser: After the timeskip. He becomes stronger and more durable, in part because he learns Armament Haki, and he's potentially even faster.
  • Maniac Tongue: He probably picked it up from Doflamingo.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Despite seeing his idol's true colors he refuses to turn against someone he has respected for so long
  • Mugging the Monster: He assaults Luffy (and Zoro) due to his scrawny appearance and believing that his exceptional bounty must've been fake. Luffy actually let's him get away with this, but then Bellamy takes it too far by victimizing his new friends shortly after that... and it does not end well for Bellamy the second time.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Bellamy is a pretty brutal, violent thug of a guy. He then gets on the recieving end of one, twice. And then, post timeskip, it seems Bellamy has become even more brutal because he uses his spring abilities to break Abdullah and Jeet's spines.
  • No Respect Guy: Of the Donquixote Pirates, especially after the timeskip. Despite being a tough fighter with a very useful Devil Fruit power, and Armament Haki that (when combined with his spring powers) can break through even Luffy's, who gave Doflamingo a building-sized pillar of gold as tribute and would literally rather die than live with disappointing him, they don't just reject him as useless, but go out of their way to torture him to death.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Post-Time Skip, his bounty tripled, he grew twice his original height, he's been to Skypeia and even brought back gold to Doflamingo, and seems to have knowledge of Haki. He was pegged to win at least Block B, and did amazingly well... until he ran into King Elizabello II, whose "King Punch" is believed to be strong enough to take down an Emperor, and is promptly defeated. He gets beaten to near-death by Dellinger, and later by Doflamingo himself, and finally by Luffy with a single punch, though the punishment by the previous two seemed to contributed to this.
  • Paper Tiger: Bullies other pirates on the island of Jaya and has spring-based powers with enough concussive force to destroy buildings. Protagonist Monkey D. Luffy and his first mate Roronoa Zoro let themselves get beat up by him under the idea that he has not wronged them. Once he does, however, Luffy challenges him, and he gets stopped cold with a single punch.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Bellamy pulls on off while fighting Luffy. Fat lot of good that did for him. And here's the Japanese version of it:
    Bellamy: Those guys are your FRIENDS!? [laughs] Oh I see. That old man and his monkeys are the same species as you! A pack of idiots who believe the lies of some 400-year-old ancestor! What City of Gold? What Sky Island? THE ERA OF DREAMS IS OVER! YOU'RE A DISGRACE OF A PIRATE!
    • And here's the Funimation version:
    Bellamy: So you want the gold back, huh? Because Old Man Cricket's your friend? WAKE UP! He's nothing but a decrepit fool who spends all his time chasing after a 400 year old lie! But that's probably what you like about him, right? You like to call yourselves pirates, but you know nothing! There's no City of Gold! No island in the sky! Just oceans and ships and the men who sail them!
  • Reformed, but Rejected: What is implied to have happened to Bellamy as a result of choosing to blindly side with Doflamingo after his original crew witnessed the attempt on his life. Fed up and disgusted with his choice to stay on Doflamingo's side, they deserted him. Bellamy also marks out his old Jolly Roger with a cross. However, Bellamy stops looking down on other people and their dreams and begins to look up to Doflamingo's attitudes... at least until he learns they are primarily driven by an appetite for spiteful destruction of the world.
  • Rocket Punch: His "Spring Death Knock".
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: One of the reasons he hated Luffy for was his belief in dreams and the existence of sky island, something Bellamy would be proven wrong about when he heard Luffy ring the golden bell. This completely changed his worldview and he would end up traveling to the sky island himself.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Fifty-five million wasn't worth much, even prior to the Time Skip. After the Time Skip, he got over himself and became much more likable, to the point that he and Luffy actually respect each other.
  • Smug Snake: Always gloating about how he's the "Big-time Rookie" with a 55 million belli bounty (Although that was nowhere near as high as the real big-time rookies; the Eleven Supernovas, with bounties over 100 million, and Luffy reaching that status already by the time he met him), and mocking Luffy about his dreams, before suggesting he doesn't even know how to fight. Boy was he wrong there...
    • After the timeskip, he at least seems to have become less of an arrogant dick.
  • Spring Coil: His Devil Fruit essentially is this, not that it helped against a man who beat a Warlord made of sand and leader of the first major villain organization in the series with just blood.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: His Establishing Character Moment in the manga when he loses to the pirate Roshio. He stabs Roshio's hand with a knife just as the latter is about to take his winnings and accuses him of cheating. Then he shoots Roshio in the leg while breaking a bottle of alcohol over his head, lights him on fire, and shoves him out the nearest window.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Alright, it's possible that Luffy and Zoro might've faked their bounties, but surely when one of them runs to back to town and screams for your name, that might be your first clue that those bounties might be real, ask for forgiveness and just hand over the gold that you stole. This, apparently, doesn't occur to Bellamy, and he gets laid out for it.
    • When we see him again after the time skip he seems to have wised up considerably. He is even the first person to see through Luffy's Paper-Thin Disguise.
    • However, when Dellinger lets it slip that Doflamingo intended to have him killed regardless of whether he assassinated Luffy or not, he personally heads off to the castle and confronts him about it, even after he received an asskicking from Dellinger himself. This goes as well as you'd expect, what's particularly bad is that Doflamingo is now literally stringing him along to fight for him when Luffy and Law confront him.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Amazingly, he did. For one, his bounty has more than tripled since his encounter with Luffy. Also telling is that, in a gladiator tournament filled with New World-level combatants, he's one of the favorites to win the whole thing.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Okay, he's still not a Nice Guy by any stretch of the imagination, but considering he's now showing open displays of respect and seems sad about his orders to kill Luffy, he's definitely not the asshole he was before.
    • He's also upset that the idea of being forced to fight him, due to Doflamingo's powers.
  • Troll: Taunts Luffy about the possiblity that he did something to the Skypeians offscreen. But the cover pages have already showed that Skypeia is doing fine.
  • Unexpected Character: Safe to say that practically no one expected to see him again. Come Chapter 704 and guess who's there for the tournament?
  • Undying Loyalty: Deconstructed. Much like Gin, Bellamy is devoted to a man who is unworthy of his loyalty. Unlike Gin, his principles and his pride prevent him from turning against the idol he has respected and admired for so long, in spite of how terribly treated he is.
  • Virtue Is Weakness: Pre-timeskip, he mocks people for believing in their dreams, before getting creamed by Luffy. Post-timeskip, he no longer holds that sentiment.
  • Vocal Evolution: In the English dub, his voice is considerbly deeper when he shows up in Dressrosa. Fans thought he was recast, but when he calls his attacks, his higher pitch can be heard.
  • Walking Spoiler: Due to being confirmed alive in the second half of the series.
  • The Worf Effect: He talks and acts big, but it doesn't stop him from getting his ass kicked by a very angry Luffy.
  • Worthy Opponent: His words in Chapter 706 implies he has respect for Luffy as he won't laugh at him anymore.
  • You Have Failed Me: Doflamingo didn't take the news of his defeat well.
    • Seems to have been reversed after the timeskip, as Bellamy's still working under him. Though it's explained he stole a gold pillar from Skypiea and brought it back to Doflamingo. So more than likely, he bribed his way back into his favor. He likewise mentions he's trying to join Doflamingo's main crew, so it seems he's still working his way up the ladder.
    • Or not, Doflamingo was just stringing him along. Then orders to Diamante to have him killed since he's "an eyesore". Ouch.

Long Ring Long Land

A ring shaped island with ten mountains spaced evenly across throughout the ring. The island looks like a circular archipelago of ten smaller islands at a normal glance, but every ten years the tide will recede and reveal the connecting land between the mountains, allowing land-locked travelers to move. It is inhabited by plants and animals with unusually stretched proportions, but otherwise has no noteworthy features.

    Tonjit 

Tonjit

Voiced by: Naoki Tatsuta (JP), Bill Flynn (EN, Funi)

Age: 61 (Pre-Timeskip), 63 (Post-Timeskip)

Debut: Chapter 304 (Manga), Episode 207 (Anime)

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

A nomad the Straw Hats meet on Long Ring Long Land. He wound up stuck on a pair of stilts he made for tens years and was only freed when Luffy knocked them down by accident. He's reunited with his horse Sherry but comes under confrontation from Foxy and his crew. The SH agree to fight Foxy for Tonjit's sake after Sherry is shot. After the Straw Hats win the Davy Back Fight, Aokiji freezes the water so Tonjit can rejoin his tribe.


  • Berserk Button: Tries to gun down Foxy when the latter shoots his horse. Subverted when he calms down as soon as Luffy accept the challenge, and even buys food from Foxy's stand during the Davy Back Fight.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: To sum up, he built a pair of stilts so tall that he was unable to descend and was struck there for ten years. He also greets Luffy and Chopper like they're old time friends when they first meet and when Luffy and Chopper point that out, he casually remarks about how he didn't remember them at all, much to Usopp's consternation.
  • Cool Horse: Shelly, his extremely loyal steed, who waited for him for ten years.
  • Miniature Senior Citizen: He only reaches around Luffy's stomach in height.
  • Too Dumb to Live: From the stilt accident (again, ten years), to eating some clearly dodgy "cheese" (actually a hardened gruel of milk) and suffering from intoxication. Heck, even Luffy calls him on that.

Foxy Pirates

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bandera_foxy.jpg

The huge pirate crew serving Foxy, many of its members were former pirates who lost at the Davy Back Fight game. The relevant members are Porche, Hamburg, Pickles, Capote, Monda, and Big Pan. The anime adds other members.

Their main activity seems to be stealing members from other crews by challenging them to several Davy Back Fight games, games at which they outrageously cheat, too bad the referee is a crew member of them too.


  • Affably Evil: Yes, they recruit through the Davy Back Fights and are cheaters even by pirate standards, but overall they seem like a bunch of affable goofs otherwise.
  • As Lethal as It Needs to Be: One of the filler Fish-man members has large curved blades coming out of his arms. Despite their nasty look, they're actually blunt.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Big Pan is a Wotan (half giant, half Fish-man hybrid), and is very large (not as big a real giant though).
  • Beast Man: Chiqicheetah, who probably ate the Cat-Cat Fruit Model Cheetah.
  • Co-Dragons: Porche and Hamburg are Foxy's trusty right-hand people.
  • Combat Pragmatist: These guys absolutely refuse to play by the rules. Expect them to rig the competition in any way they can.
  • Fanservice Extra: The large collection of pretty women Foxy has in his crew get just a little of screentime and absolutely no characterization whatsoever. Their main mission is to distract the men of the opposing crew during the Davy Back Fights so they waste time or mess up.
  • Gag Nose: Justified with Capote, a swordfish Fish-man.
  • Goldfish Poop Gang: Foxy, Hamburg and Porche in the anime.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Big Pan is part giant and part Fish-man.
  • Making a Splash: Capote can use Fish-man Karate to send a massive tidal shock wave at an enemy vessel.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Juubei the squid Fish-man, whose limbs and neck are also very elastic.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: As lighthearted as the arc they're featured in is, we see before even meeting them that suddenly depriving crews of vital members while they're in the middle of the Grand Line can have lethal consequences. Given the crew's enormous size, Foxy's continuous Davy Back Fights could've ruined these crews (barring unless all of them joined up.)
  • Punny Name: Hamburg, Pickles, and Big Pan. Also Juubei (juu means Ten, and he has ten arms.)
  • Sorting Algorithm of Evil: Power-wise, the Foxy Pirates are much weaker than Eneru's group. Threat-wise, they prove to be not so harmless as the Groggy Monsters give Zoro and Sanji a truly brutal beatdown and Foxy gives Luffy a much harder fight than Eneru, one of the strongest characters of the series. Of course, once Zoro and Sanji quit messing around and actually worked together they destroy the Groggy Monsters, and Luffy was immune to Eneru's powers due to being a Rubber Man while Foxy's powers pretty much inconvenienced him, on top of his dirty tactics.
  • Team Pet: Monda the Star Shark is their pet shark.
  • Terrible Trio:
    • At least in the anime, Foxy and his Co-Dragons Porche and Hamburg.
    • The "Groggy Monsters", consisting of Hamburg, Pickles and Big Pan for playing the Groggy Ring matches.
  • The Starscream: Kiba, The former Captain of the Fanged Toad pirates, attempts to take over the Foxy Pirates in an anime filler arc.
  • Wacky Wayside Tribe: Oda has admitted this crew in canon has no bearing on the plot and was a fun time to goof around (especially after the Skypiea Arc) till Aokiji showed up.
  • Whip It Good: Kiba, the former captain of the Fanged Toad pirates, favors the use of a whip as his weapon, which speaks to his cruel and bullying personality. The sting of its blows actually annoys Luffy for a few moments before the Straw Hat captain powers through and rips it out of his hand.

Devil Fruit: Slow-Slow Fruit

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

"We, the Foxy Pirates, challenge you, the Straw Hat Pirates, to a Davy Back Fight!"

Foxy "The Silver Fox" is a notorious pirate for having one of the largest crews in the series, together with one of the largest ships. He has such because of his mastery of the "Davy Back Fight", a sportive event between pirates where the crews wage their own True Companions. Althought not very combat prone, Foxy is a very scheming and cunning man (which is kind of hard to believe of him, at a glance), making use of different kinds of weapons, disguises, and items, together with his Devil Fruit powers of the Slow-Slow Fruit (Noro Noro no Mi), which allows him to slow everything his beams touch for 30 seconds.

His bounty is 24,000,000 Berries.


  • Accent Adaptation: He has an Italian accent in the Funimation dub provided by Jonathan Brooks. It's because his appearance looks a lot like Count Chocula.
  • A Father to His Men: In the anime, at least, it's his most redeeming trait: he genuinely likes and cares for his crew, and does his best to take good care of them. They reward his compassion by caring for him deeply in return. Best exemplified when Kiba, the usurping captain, whips one of Foxy's former underlings for wanting to help the injured Foxy, who proceeds to struggle to his feet whilst chewing out Kiba as nothing more than a bully.
  • Affably Evil: Unlike most of his predecessors, he honestly cares for his crew, gets upset easily, and doesn't Kick the Dog, at least not ones that are played seriously. The only evil thing about him is that he's a Dirty Coward and that he takes away members from other crews.
  • Animal Motifs: Take one guess. It's as subtle as a brick to the face.
  • Arc Villain: Oda admits he's the only canon Filler Villain so far as his presence has no lasting influence on the story.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: It's easy to overlook since he usually relies on his Devil Fruit ability and various gadgets, but he can hit hard and fast enough to match Luffy's Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs blow-for-blow (if nothing else, it's visually very impressive, since most other Arc Villains usually either dodge it or tank it).
    • His Vivre Card information reveals that he was once a professional boxer back as a young man which explains his combat prowess. However, he would end up barred from it after bringing in a weapon. He ends up eating his Devil Fruit a couple years later and three years after that (about 26-28), he hears the legend of Davy Jones and decided to become a pirate, using the Davy Back Fight to amass a crew.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Befitting of his nickname, he has a fox-like grin whenever he's smug.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Will gladly use any trickery he can think of to win a fight.
  • Enemy Mine: Teams up with the Straw Hats in Adventures of Nebulandia against Marine Tactician Komei.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He has no problems with exploiting every loophole he can think of in a Davy Back Fight, but he always adheres to the spirit of the games. As such, when Nami makes the technically legal but ruthlessly cold-blooded suggestion that Luffy should use their team's first victory in the games to pick Foxy himself, on the grounds it will shatter the Foxy Pirates' morale and throw off their ability to compete entirely, he is horrified and immediately begins calling out Nami on this unsportsmanlike idea.
  • Evil Laugh: Fehfehfehfeh.
  • Expy: Pretty much an extrapolation of what would happen if Boyakky from Yatterman were in charge of the Terrible Trio instead of an underling. The nose is a dead giveaway, to say nothing of his Giant Mecha.
    • He also looks similar to Le Nabot, one of two Evil Duo from the Il était une fois... metaseries. Both have a big reddish nose, smug grin, pointy hairdo and a shrewd, malicious attitude. Interestingly, that character was renamed "Foxy" in some dubs of the series.
  • Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: After the first race victory he told the Straw Hats the details to his Slow-Slow Fruit. In his fight with Luffy he told him his beams bounce off mirrors, of course he loses exactly because of this.
  • Filler Villain: Despite being canon, Oda has admitted his presence and arc only serves as a way to build up to Aokiji's sudden appearance. Foxy also serves as a recurring antagonist in a few filler arcs.
  • Gag Nose: He has a long red nose to go with his already goofy face.
  • Giant Mecha: The Gorilla Puncher #13; the anime version has several more, such as the dodgeball cannon "Bull's Eye-kun".
  • Gold Fish Poop Gang: The anime eventually turns him, Porche, and Hamburger into this.
  • Gonk: He's portly, has a Gag Nose and a Cheshire Cat Grin, a far cry from Eneru, but much less insane. Just don't tell him this to his face.
  • Hidden Depths: To an extent, because Foxy is ultimately a fairly shallow character, but there's more to him than meets the eye. Despite his apparent cowardice and his reliance on cheap tricks, he's actually pretty capable fighter when brought into the ring (just nowhere near Luffy's level). He twists the letter of the Davy Back Fights to the extreme, but always adheres to the spirit of them, even if he's lost. And as much of a jerk as he can be to his foes, he's a caring and affable leader to his men.
    • We find out that he actually used to be a professional boxer until he got disqualified for bringing a weapon in. This gives off that he was always pretty pragmatic. However, only a few years after that (and eating his Devil Fruit) would he end up becoming a pirate. Specifically, it was the Davy Back Fight that inspired him to go into piracy in particular. This certainly raises some interesting possibilities, especially with how he treats his crew affably.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Luffy reflects his Slow-Slow Beam at him, then knocks him into the water while he's helpless.
  • Hypocrite: Mocks the Straw Hats for complaining about his cheating, saying that if they can't handle being at a disadvantage, they don't belong on the Grand Line. Sure he may be right at face value, but this is still coming from the guy who NEVER fights unless he's thoroughly rigged the match beforehand.
    • Granted, one could also interpret this as him making sure his crew are never in a disadvantage. As such, if their foes will not be fair, they shouldn't be.
  • Loophole Abuse: He never officially "breaks" the rule of the Davy Back Fight, but always twists them or his advantage, like having his own crewmember as referee or letting the cannonball which decides the arena of the third round "casually" landing in his own ship.
  • Minor Insult Meltdown: Always drops to his knees in shame if he hears so much as one insult thrown his way. Luckily, equally offhanded praise will get him back up immediately. In the anime version of the Davy Back arc, this is used to effectively paralyze him at one point and prevent him from interfering in one of the Davy Back matches.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: In the previous Davy Back Fights, he got a captain traded for one of his previous victims. Only, in the anime, said captain proceeds to overthrow him as soon as he's defeated.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Until the Captain Duel, he was regarded as a great joke. However, then he began utilizing the power of his Fruit by stunning Luffy and then pummeling him sensely. While Luffy is heavily resistant to brute force, Foxy's Fruit allows him to "cheat" past that by having it him all at once and thus, overwhelm him.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Thanks to his Noro Noro Fruit, he can slow down his enemy for thirty seconds, during which they will accumulate all the punches Foxy throws at them. Once the time is over, all the punches are taken at once.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: One of his many techniques is known as the "Foxy Face Transformation", referencing the shapeshifting abilities that mythological kyuubi are supposed to have. Instead of flawless transformation, it's this trope, which only Luffy would (and did) fall for. Luffy thought the female nurse Foxy disguised himself as was his sister.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Even without the Slow-Slow Beam, his "Megaton Kyuubi Rush" technique can match Luffy's "Gomu Gomu Gatling" blow-for-blow.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: In the anime-only "Foxy Returns" two-episode arc, after seeing Kiba whip one of Foxy's men who was rushing to Foxy's aid, Foxy mockingly notes that hitting one's own crew makes no sense to him, before denouncing Kiba's behavior as fit only for a bully leading a band of thugs, not a true pirate captain, and declaring him unfit to be a leader to a loyal crew.
  • Sore Loser: Considering his record, it's unsurprising he doesn't take loss well. In the filler of the Davy Back Arc after the Straw Hats initially win the first round of matches, he demands a re-match just to soothe his damaged ego and noticeably cites "Combat" as the final game — furthermore, when Luffy declares that they'll throw a third set of Davy Back Games to win back their second lost crewmember after losing the first two rounds, he declares that he's not going to accept any more Davy Back matches. He points out that this is the seventh set of three-round Davy Back Fights his crew has held in the last day or so, and that his men are too tired to continue, but it's obvious that he just wants to deny Luffy the chance to win back all of his crew. When Luffy manages to beat him in the final round, he tries to extend a handshake of good sportsmanship then do an overhead throw as revenge. Only for that to fail since, thanks to Luffy's rubber body extending his arm, Foxy falls flat on his face.
  • Time Stands Still: His Slow-Slow Beams allow him to slow anything they touch for thirty seconds. Besides the obvious use in enemies, he adds very different (and deadly) uses to them.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: While he does have a pride as a captain, he does fight dirty as well as turn on the Straw Hats as soon as they get his ship back from a treacherous member (also a captain).
  • Weak, but Skilled: Probably the most evident example in the series; he lacks the raw strength of people like the Monster Trio of Luffy, Zoro or Sanji. On the other hand, he is a professionally-trained boxer (and is still pretty strong in his own right) and combined with his clever usage of his Devil Fruit and his tactical trickery, he is quite the surprisingly fierce opponent.
  • Zerg Rush: Does this to Luffy in the final fight of the Davy Back.

Sabaody Archipelago

The last stop in Paradise for all travelers, pirates and civilians alike, located in the shadow of Mariejois and the Red Line, and nearby the former Marine headquarters Marineford. From this stopping point, civilians can cross the Red Line to the New World by applying to travel through Mariejois, or do as the pirates are forced to and take the more dangerous underwater route to Fish-Man Island which lies 20,000 meters below Mariejois beneath the Red Line. Sabaody is not an actual island, but a forest of massive mangrove trees clustered together which breathe out bubbles used for everyday life. Despite its close proximity to Marineford, Sabaody is a hotbed of lawlessness due to the massive number of pirates passing by, as well as the World Nobles frequently visiting from Mariejois. In particular, slavery still exists as a practice here despite being banned by the World Government.

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

Also known as Shakky, she is Silver Rayleigh's wife and business partner and an old friend of Hatchan's, who owns a bar in the Sabaody Archipelago called "Shakky's Rip-Off Bar", which places highly exorbetant prices on anything you purchase there. Those who don't take the pub name very seriously are dealt with accordingly. Other than business, she somewhat obsessively reads newspapers to garner information about current affairs which already gives her a Ms Exposition role, as seen when she informs the Straw Hats that nine other pirates are on the archipelago, who like themselves have garnered the World Government's attention, and (including Luffy and Zoro) were dubbed the Eleven Supernovas.

She herself was once a pirate, and was chased by Vice-Admiral Garp, but she retired forty years ago. She appears to sensitive about her age since as soon as the question was brought up, she changed the subject (For the curious, she's 62 pre-timeskip, it's All There in the Manual). Shakky quickly look a liking to the Straw Hats, so much that she didn't charge them. She especially took a liking to Monkey D. Luffy and seems to believe him when he told her he wants to be the Pirate King.


  • Cool Old Lady: Although she really doesn't look that old.
  • Ms Exposition: Well, she does read a lot of papers.
  • Older Than They Look: She looks rather young, but she's sixty-two years old pre-timeskip. She looks so young despite this that when Brook asks to see her panties, she's flattered enough to be asked at her age to actually comply!
  • Retired Badass: Was chased by "Garp the Hero" and retired forty years ago, but still has it in her to kick the ass of anyone who doesn't pay in full for their drinks.
  • Smoking Is Cool: One of the rare women in the show who smokes, and she definitely isn't a woman to be trifled with.

Flying Fish Riders/Rosy Life Riders

A Gang of kidnappers from the Sabaody Archipelago. The members are dressed like bikers and rides huge Tobio (Flying Fish). Their boss, Duval, is a huge masked man who holds a grudge against Sanji, because he looks exactly like his badly drawn wanted poster. They're briefly allied with a trio of Fish-men kidnappers, the Macro Pirates. After their defeat and after Sanji's operation on Duval's face they join sides with the Straw Hats.

Click here to see his new face 

"Did somebody say...'handsome'?"

A former bounty hunter and kidnapper based in Sabaody Archipelago, leader of the Rosy Life Riders (formerly known as Flying Fish Riders) turned ally of the Straw Hats. Initially, his relationship with the Straw Hats was very hostile, particularly Sanji, as the crew's raid on Enies Lobby made them world famous, and turned his (comparatively) "quiet" life of being a small-time mafia hood into a nightmare as he was hounded by Marines and bounty hunters, as he looked remarkably like Sanji's terribly drawn wanted poster. Eventually, he was forced to wear an iron mask, to protect his identity, and live the life of a kidnapper as part of the biker gang, The Flying Fish Riders.

After antagonizing the Straw Hats, by kidnapping their friends Camie and Pappagu, the Flying Fish Riders were easily defeated, and Duval personally had his face rearranged (literally) by Sanji. However, upon Duval's recovery, he found himself looking beautiful, and no longer held a grudge on the crew; personally thanking Sanji for beating him pretty, and declares he is now in their debt. His new outlook on life changed, he began calling himself "Handsome", and changed his crew name to the Rosy Life Riders. He was of some use during the middle of the Sabaody Archipelago arc, and after the crew were vanished by Kuma, he swore to protect the ship until they returned. During the Time Skip, he received several injuries from a battle with the Marines after they discovered the Thousand Sunny and fought alongside Hatchan until the Marines retreated. He was last seen covered in bandages with the rest of the Rosy Life Riders in the back of Shakky's Ripp-Off Bar.


  • Accent Slip Up: When angered, Duval lapses back into his native accent (a Tohoku Regional Accent in Japanese, a Southern drawl in English). His Riders all know that's a sign that he's ready to snap.
  • Badass Normal: Despite being completely overshadowed by Sanji in a fight, he and his gang were able to successfully defend the Thousand Sunny from Marine attackers for two years straight while the Straw Hats were separated from it.
  • Bait-and-Switch: Introduced with the implication that he is a dangerous figure from Sanji's past who would go on to become a major villain. In reality, he and Sanji have no pre-existing relationship and he ends up being a comically short-lasting villain who very quickly becomes a helpful ally.
  • Berserk Button: The mere mention of the Straw Hats, especially Sanji, was enough to have him rant at length about his revenge, which in turn brought out his accent. That was all sorted out though.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Before his Heel–Face Turn, he's built up as an intimidating villain. Turns out he's just the victim of a terrible misunderstanding. Then Sanji fixes his problem and he drops the act.
  • Bishōnen: Thanks to Sanji, and he's really thankful for it.
  • Camp Straight: Don't let his eccentric and narcissistic behavior fool you, he's not gay. He only started acting like this after Sanji's operation.
  • Casanova Wannabe: At becoming a Bishōnen, he soon went around trying to hit on girls, to no avail. Sanji mentions that he may have repaired his face, but not his screwy personality.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Sanji destroys him with a single attack. To his credit, Sanji's attack was powered up by seething rage.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: He's only the antagonist for the first half of the Sabaody Archipelago arc before becoming an extremely helpful guide for the second half.
  • Doppelgänger: Unwittingly, to Sanji. It's revealed that Sanji's royal family, the Vinsmokes, have been looking for him for several years, but because Sanji's bounty posters had Duval's face, the Vinsmokes focused on him instead. It's also revealed that the Vinsmokes physically and psychologically abused Sanji as a kid, so having Duval around gave him a form of protection (though both parties didn't know it). Now that Sanji fixed Duval's face, he ends up revoking that protection.
  • A Father to His Men: His crew is very loyal to him, and he doesn't mistreat them in any way. Before and after his Heel–Face Turn.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Sorta. He was a small-time hood who became a notorious slave ringer.
  • Gonk: At first. His face prior to Sanji's face-fixing could be described as, "What if Sanji was born Gonk-looking?"
  • Heel–Face Turn: He was the enemy of the Straw Hats because he happened to look like Sanji's poorly drawn wanted poster. When his face was fixed, he became their ally because of gratitude. He also stopped kidnapping people for the slave trade.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Post-facial reconstruction, he's a friendly and helpful guy, but also a raging narcissist who is often extremely annoying to be around.
  • Large and in Charge: Duval is over 15 feet tall, dwarfing even his lookalike Sanji, and is easy to spot among his underlings.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: While he was accidentally framed for being a Straw Hat pirate, he reveals in his backstory that he used to be a mobster bullying a small town, so he deserves being chased by the Navy, even if it's for the wrong reasons. But anyhow, it's Duval's luck he wasn't caught by Sanji's father or Big Mom.
  • Magic Plastic Surgery: Received one courtesy of Sanji. He is very pleased with the results.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Wore an iron mask to hide his face from the Marines and bounty hunters. During this time, he was also a ruthless slave trader.
  • Man in the Iron Mask: Initially. He ditches the mask after his face is fixed.
  • Mistaken Identity: He looked like Sanji's poorly drawn wanted poster (which in turn looked nothing like Sanji). Gave him grief from bounty hunters and Marines. Until Sanji caved his face in several times.
  • Narcissist: Nowadays, he is. He's taken to call himself "Handsome", and injecting his new name in his sentences.
  • Paper Tiger: Built up as being a highly intimidating and dangerous enemy with some sort of past with Sanji, but is revealed to be a buffoon whose only connection to Sanji is his uncanny resemblance to his poorly drawn wanted poster. He could have been a legitimate threat to Luffy back in season 1, but after the near-death experiences the Straw Hats faced at Enies Lobby and Thriller Bark, the crew had leveled up so much that they barely broke a sweat with this guy.
  • The Reveal: One that was as shocking as it was hilarious — his face is almost exactly similar to the "bad art poster" Sanji, which is why he hides it in a mask and he has a deep grudge against Sanji. This undergoes a Cerebus Retcon when we find out that Duval was technically covering for Sanji, by unwittingly taking all the heat from Sanji due to his abusive family and Big Mom herself.
  • Undying Loyalty: Develops this towards Sanji after he rearranges his face to be handsome. While Sanji is grateful for his help, he otherwise finds Duval to be an annoyance.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Spends the timeskip protecting the Thousand Sunny with the rest of the crew.

Fake Straw Hat Crew

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

A relatively new (well, to being impersonators, that is) crew led by "Three Tongued" Demalo Black, this small and very weak crew took advantage of the disappearance of the Straw Hat Pirates and impersonated them (minus Brook, who was not known as a member until recently), using their reputation to recruit 100+ members, including 10 people with bounties over 70,000,000 and three whole crews, the captains of which are "Gashed" Albion, "Lip Service" Doughty and the new-age Supernova brothers "Wet Hair" Caribou" and "Blood Splatterer" Coribou.

The crew is now effectively dismantled. Black was captured by Sentomaru, the fake Robin (Cocoa) and Chopper (Nora Gitsune) were kidnapped by mysterious agents, the fake Zoro (Manjaro), Nami (Chocolat), Sogeking (Mounblutain), Sanji (Drip) and Franky (Turk) were buried alive by the brothers, Doughty was either captured or (judging from a large pile of bodies) killed, and the brothers and Albion defected and escaped.


  • All There in the Manual: The Fake Straw Hats' names, except for Fake Luffy (Demalo Black), Fake Robin (Cocoa), and Fake Sanji (Drip).
    • As well as the fact that Albion escaped being arrested.
  • Boss in Mook's Clothing: Switched around, they are actually Mooks in Boss' Clothing.
  • Buried Alive: The final fate of the fakes Zoro, Nami, Sogeking, Sanji, and Franky.
  • Butt-Monkey: They're all hardly threatening, such that they're even made into jokes.
  • Casting Gag: All of them are played by the same voice actors as the Straw Hat pirates, just with their respective voice actors changed around.note  It's meant to highlight their being total phonies.
  • Cowardly Lion: The fake Sogeking has some shred of bravery, as he tried to save the fake Sanji from being suffocated by Caribou.
  • Criminal Doppelgänger: They're posing as the Straw Hats. Extends to a Casting Gag in the anime, with the Straw Hats' VAs being mixed around and providing voices for the Fakes. For example Hiroaki Hirata and Eric Vale (Sanji) voice Demalo Black in Japanese and English respectively.
  • Dirty Coward: The moment there's trouble, such as the moment their con is exposed, they immediately lose their cool and run away.
  • Dumb Muscle: The fakes aren't very bright, unable to tell that they were at several points threatening the real Straw Hats. This even extends to the recruits who didn't realise they were being played by fakes with Paper Thin Disguises until Sentomaru exposed the con.
  • Fat Bastard: The fake Luffy, Zoro, Sogeking, and Doughty are all fat and all pirates.
  • Flat Character: Albion & Doughty don't have much in the way of screen time or lines.
  • Gag Lips: Lip Doughty is famous in-universe for this.
  • Gonk: Every single freakin' member except Fake Chopper.
  • Irony: The only one of them who looks remotely like the Straw Hat he's supposed to be imitating is fake Sanji, for whom the resemblance is actually fairly strong. Why? Because they all tried to copy the crew's looks from their wanted posters, and Sanji's poster looks nothing like him.
  • Kick the Dog: Black is a utter prick, shooting people when he wants with no regret. Caribou & Coribou are even worse.
  • Knife Nut: Albion is seen wielding three daggers and a large knife.
  • Mugging the Monster: You would think the impostors would know how the people they copy look like.
  • Oh, Crap!: Several...one satisfying reaction from them is when they saw the Marines after their ass.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise:
    • They are middle-aged Gonks. The real deals are teenagers and young adults. Do the math.
    • Chopper is a reindeer. Fake Chopper is a fox.
    • In their defense, the concept of people looking radically different in a relatively short amount of time isn't exactly uncommon in the One Piece universe.
  • Red Shirt: Many of them, especially Lip Doughty and Albion.
  • Smug Snake: They're all extremely smug and act like complete bastards, leeching off the Straw Hats reputation within any strength to back it up.
  • The Starscream: Caribou and Coribou only joined so they could kill the Straw Hats on the inside for fame.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Oh yeah, passing yourself off as a legendary pirate crew to recruit Ax-Crazy pirates and letting them do your dirty work isn't going to backfire at all.

"Hey big guy! Don't you know who you're talking to!?!"

A phony that thought he and his crew could pass themselves off as the Straw Hats after the time skip. He attempts to use the deception to gain more people to support him. He and his whole crew were curb-stomped by the Marines when they heard that Luffy has come back... which he really should have seen coming. The only major contribution to the story is introducing the far more menacing (but still out of his league) villain Caribou.

His actual bounty is 26,000,000 Berries.


  • Arc Villain: The main villain of the Return to Sabaody arc.
  • Beard of Evil: Has prominent stubble along his jaw, to contrast Luffy, who never had so much as peach fuzz on his chin.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Tries to pass himself as the real deal. Sentomaru kicks his ass with one strike, and from the broad end of his axe, to boot.
    • He talks a big game as "Luffy", but the real Luffy's bounty was more than fifteen times the amount of Black's at the time, and it's currently over fifty seven times as large, to boot. Not to mention that Luffy's first bounty was higher than Black's.
  • Bullying a Dragon: He manages to briefly antagonize Usopp, Nami, and Luffy himself; and, as you would expect, ends up getting beat up/ knocked unconscious for his troubles. Towards the end of his story, he also tempts fate by trying to intimidate Sentomaru, who just flattens him with only the broad end of his axe.
  • Butt-Monkey: Manages to humiliate himself in all of his appearances, which is impressive for a guy that got about 4 chapters of screen time. He'll probably make Caribou run for his money.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: His "fight" with Sentomaru just consisted of him being smacked by the latter with the broad side of his axe. He goes down in one hit.
  • Dirty Coward: He and his crew's cowardice matches with their smugness. Especially after Sentomaru beats Black's skull with the broad end of his axe, his remaining crew decide to ditch him and plead for mercy.
  • Entitled Bastard: He seems to think that with Luffy's rep, he can get away with anything.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Luffy; he's a huge coward underneath that smugness, is fat, a self-serving conman who fooled everyone into believing he's the real deal, and whose "friends" are just as cowardly and arrogant as him, brags about his reputation, and his only weapon is a revolver. Luffy is a fearless Idiot Hero who has Undying Loyalty to his pirate crew, is a Devil Fruit user and Big Eater who is always skinny no matter how much he eats, never brags about what he does, and actually has the power and skill to back up his reputation.
  • Evil Laugh: His Signature Laugh, "Dohaha".
  • Fat Bastard: A good reason that tells you he ain't Luffy. The real Luffy would chug down platefuls of meat in seconds without long-lasting side-effects.
  • Fat Idiot: His scheme involves impersonating some of the most wanted and most dangerous pirates in the world, without having anything to back it up, and using that to goad other pirates that are way more powerful than him (and a personality to match) into doing his dirty work. Does this sound like a good idea to you?
  • Flunky Boss: He was aiming to be one, but did not succeed. In some ways, he was a weaker & unlucky Buggy.
  • Gonk: Another reason why he's not Luffy — he's a fat, middle-aged man with a smug grin, while Luffy is a cute-looking kid.
  • Jerkass: Not only does he shoot a couple who happens to look like Nami and Usopp, but even after he finds out he's wrong, he shoots them some more because they complained. It later results in his phony pirate crew ditching him and pleading for mercy after Sentomaru easily stomps him.
  • Meaningful Name: "Three-Tongued" is a old British term for someone who lies to multiple people at once.
  • Nice Hat: Inverted; he has a straw hat like the real Luffy, but the state of said hat is another indicator why he's not Luffy. The real Luffy's hat was given to him by Shanks and is really well-cared for, and ruining it is his "punch horribly" button. Black's straw hat looks extremely shoddy and neglected, with an uneven rim from the straws sticking out.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: His idea of putting up a good fight is sitting on his ass and shooting people from point blank range. As you might have figured, he didn't even make it to the New World; you simply have to know how to fight if you're going to call yourself just a Grand Line pirate captain.
  • Oh, Crap!: Practically peed himself when he saw the Marines in his presence, he then foolishly tries to scare them off with his lies. Sentomaru would give none of that crap.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: He might pass on a general description of Luffy, but even then pirate bounty posters include pictures so...
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He thinks that he can pass himself as Luffy, but he's obviously out of his league (and obviously lacking a Devil Fruit ability).
  • Smug Snake: Thinks he can get into the New World by pretending to be Luffy, but he is quickly proven to be an impostor by the real (and now more powerful) Luffy.
  • Starter Villain: The very first after the Time Skip. Also quite a pathetic one (even Captain Morgan can briefly put up a fight).

"Wet-Haired" Caribou

Age: 32

Debut: Chapter 600 (Manga), Episode 519 (Anime)

Devil Fruit: Swamp-Swamp Fruit

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

"Well now, what have we here? Who is this little fellow whispering behind a rock because he looks like a Navy soldier? And, my goodness! What is this? You're weren't looking to crush our harmless party, were you? No... NO! That's not very civil at all! 'Cause if you were calling your friends for backup, that would not end well, seeing as they weren't invited. [...] That is good to hear — and I say that for your sake too, keeheeheehee! Because if your friends did show up, this grove will be covered in blood. Their blood... and your blood!"

An infamous rookie pirate and captain of the Caribou Pirates with a bounty of 210,000,000 and a Logia-class Devil Fruit, "Wet-Haired" Caribou is infamous for murdering Marines and burying them alive. Caribou's a psychotic, homicidal serial killer that buries his victims alive for irritating him, all while praying to God to forgive the victims' sins. Caribou has eaten the Swamp-Swamp Fruit (Numa Numa no Mi), a Logia-class Devil Fruit which allows him to transform into, create, and control a mud-like substance which he refers to as "swamps".


  • Ax-Crazy: Good lord, Caribou!
  • Bad Guys Do the Dirty Work: In Caribou's cover arc, "Caribou's Kehihihihi in the New World" he defeats, and kills, one of Kaido's men who was supervising an island in Kaido's territories, all to save an old lady who nursed Caribou back to health after he marooned on said island. This is unlike what the Straw Hats do, who beat the villains into next week but leave them alive.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Vander Decken and Hody Jones during the Fish-Man Island arc. While the first two are working together, Caribou's roaming around Fish-Man Island on his own, kidnapping various mermaids and planning to sell them off in an auction, which indirectly caused the inhabitants of the island to blame the Straw Hats for it. The mess is cleared up by the end, thankfully.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Despite the Ensemble above, Caribou's also nowhere near as threatening as either Decken or Hody, and his every interaction with the Straw Hats sees him being humiliated. Both those guys are Wannabes themselves, but Caribou is much less threatening than even them.
  • Blob Monster: Caribou's Logia-class swamp Devil Fruit allows him to turn into one.
  • Body Horror: Examples found in Chapter 650. The first one is most terror-worthy, but even in the second... bodies should not be like that!
  • Buried Alive: One of Caribou's favorite ways to kill someone. This also happens to be the final fate of the Imposter Straw Hats, excluding Demalo Black (incapacitated and incarcerated by Sentoumaru), Cocoa, and Fake Chopper (both were taken away by men in black suits). This trope is also what happened to Scotch, Kaido's subordinate, when he was defeated by Caribou (masquerading as revolutionary leader Gaburu).
  • The Bus Came Back: After his defeat at the end of the Fish-Man Island arc and his own mini-cover story, he appears in the Wano arc as a prisoner in the same jail now housing Kidd and Luffy.
  • Butt-Monkey: Once Caribou met the Straw Hats, his life pretty much turned into this. Even in a proper fight, he went down in one punch. The purpose of his character is to showcase the difference between Paradise and the New World; being a Logia, he would have been an extremely difficult opponent to the Paradise-level Straw Hats, but Logia on its own just doesn't cut it anymore, and Caribou quickly finds himself humiliated by six New World-grade pirates from three different crews.
  • Chest Blaster: Caribou keeps a gatling gun hidden inside his body, which pops out of his stomach when he needs to fire it.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Like Caesar Clown, Caribou possesses a Logia that, while strong, is nothing on its own in an area that is positively lousy with powerful Haki users. Like Caesar, he's very aware of this and dispenses with theatrics in favor of good old-fashioned dirty fighting; but unlike Caesar, he doesn't fuck around. In his cover arc, "Caribou's Kehihihihi in the New World", it allowed him to win a fight with Scotch, one of Kaido's subordinates and the guardian of Kaido's favorite island by using his powers to asphyxiate him.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Caribou is on the receiving end of this thrice over near the end of the Fish-Man Island arc. He gets knocked out of the palace while trying to kidnap Shirahoshi. Then after that, he's knocked out with one punch when the Monster Trio pursued him and then again by Pekoms while trying to take back the treasure he stole.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Caribou's Devil Fruit allows him to control and transform into mud.
  • Easily Forgiven: After escaping the G5 Marines, Coribou and crew happily go back working for "Bro-bro" in the cover arc "Caribou's Kehihihihi in the New World", despite Caribou previously abandoning them to their fates. Justified, as Coribou and Caribou were taught by their grandmother to always get along no matter what they do to each other.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: In Caribou's cover arc Caribou's Kehihihihi in the New World, it's shown that they were raised by their grandma which may became a reason why Caribou went back to save Gaburu's grandmother.
  • Evil Laugh: "Kehihihi" for Caribou. It's even the name of his cover arc!
  • Gonk: Both him and his brother are hideously ugly, not to mention freaky-looking, but especially Caribou to frightening levels.
  • Hammerspace: As a secondary effect of his powers, Caribou can absorb anything into his body. He explains his total capacity is basically bottomless and what he puts in stays preserved. So he can use it to store fresh food and comes in handy when he wants to kidnap young mermaids, even huge ones like Shirahoshi (though he was fortunately stopped before he could go through with that).
  • Hand-Hiding Sleeves: Caribou's shirt has very long sleeves that extend past his fingertips. He can turn the tips of his sleeves into a mud-like substance (thanks to the power of his Swamp-Swamp Fruit) and use them to spew copious amounts of mud at people.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Per the above. Caribou has a spear, a pistol, a scythe, and a gatling gun stuffed inside him.
  • Hiding Behind Religion: Implied; Caribou begs God to forgive the Marine that tried to shoot him, and then has him Buried Alive as punishment for said Marine's "sins."
  • Humiliation Conga: Caribou's entire cover story arc so far is this. Jimbei serves him humiliation pie each cover.
    • It started even earlier than that. The Straw Hats send him flying when he's about to kidnap Shirahoshi, then Pekoms hands him his ass. Then the mini-arc begins, and it all goes downhill from there.
    • Almost being burned at the stake, getting stuck in a storm, being saved by a little old lady, being mistaken for a revolutionary commander — at this point, he's become so pathetic that people are starting to actually pity him.
    • Seems to have been broken after he fights off some of Kaido's subordinates, showing he really did earn that bounty.
  • Hypocrite: When captured by Franky, Caribou begs for mercy, crying out that human life is not to be wasted so quickly... despite the fact that he personally killed numerous Marines and the fake Straw Hats. The conversation took place after a foiled attempt to massacre the Straw Hats, which Franky points out.
  • Identical Stranger: Caribou happens to look a lot like Gaburu, a commander in the Revolutionary Army who is long dead before he arrived. His face says it all.
  • Jerkass: Comedic humiliations aside, Caribou is a rather unpleasant individual. After being saved by Gaburu's grandmother, he seems to have become genuinely attached to her, saving her from Kaido's subordinates.
  • Lethal Joke Character: By New World standards, Caribou is a laughably pathetic newbie who relies far too much on his Logia to survive, but he was not only able to take down some of Kaidou's men and their commander, a cyborg that is implied to have fought X.Drake pre-timeskip; he destroyed one of Kaidou's factories by enveloping it entirely into his swamp body — effectively winning Kaidou's favorite Island for the Revolutionaries.
  • Mistaken Identity: In Caribou's cover arc, the people on the island he marooned on mistake him for Gaburu, their revolutionary leader who will lead them in a rebellion against Scotch, one of Kaido's men. He later uses it to his advantage to rally the people and defeat Scotch, which turns into a Dead Person Impersonation as the old lady Caribou saved is seen at the end praying at the real Gaburu's grave.
  • Nightmare Face: Caribou. Looks even more unsettling in the anime.
  • Not So Harmless: His own cover arc Caribou's Kehihihihi in the New World shows him actually winning in a fight against Scotch. Yes, he's winning a fight against the guardian of Kaido's favorite island. That has to count for something.
  • Novelty Decay: If he had appeared during the first half of the Grand Line, Caribou's Logia Fruit combined with his sadism would have made him one of the most dangerous kinds of opponents. After the Time Skip, he serves as an example of why a Devil Fruit alone isn't good enough.
  • Oh, Crap!: Caribou, twice.
    • When Mohmoo ran away and took the rest of the crew with him in fear, Caribou had such an epic one that was on par with Eneru.
    • He had another one later when Luffy caught him red-handed trying to kidnap Shirahoshi.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Caribou is a Logia, but he may actually be an aversion, as since he's a liquid-based one, he seems to have a set amount he can generate, and he can be confined in a closed space (A barrel, if you want to know), but he can absorb materials into him like Blackbeard can.
  • Psycho for Hire: For the Impostor Straw Hats, before he defected.
  • Scary Black Man: You wouldn't know it from the manga, but in the anime, Caribou is actually black (Although his brother is pale white, for some reason) and he is hella scary with his deformed face and bright green eyes and whatnot.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: It's not very wise to open an unknown barrel with SUPER security seals. Poor mermaids.
  • Serial Killer: Caribou earned a reputation for killing Marines and burying them alive.
  • Shovel Strike: Coribou seems to carry one around, but actually uses it to dig more than fight.
  • Sibling Team: Caribou and Coribou constantly work together, with the latter following whatever his "Bro-bro" tells him to do.
  • Sinister Scythe: Caribou has one hidden away inside his swamp form.
  • Slasher Smile: Caribou's default expression.
  • Soul-Saving Crusader: When Caribou's about to kill someone, he asks an unspecified god to forgive them of their sins. It's one of the reasons he's one of the most disturbing villains in the series.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Caribou wouldn't have lasted a week in the New World if he hadn't met the Straw Hats, due to his reliance on his Devil Fruit powers. Then he got his ass kicked by Luffy, Pekoms, and Jimbei, and for the most part seems more sensible, yet even more pathetic.
    Pekoms: (after kicking his ass) Logia users who think they're invincible have short lifespans.
  • Smug Snake: Caribou constantly has to reevaluate his plans, not because of Xanatos Speed Chess, but because when he encountered the actual Straw Hats he discovered he was completely out of his depth.
  • The Starscream: Caribou only joined the Imposter Straw Hats so they could kill them on the inside for fame.
  • Swamps Are Evil: Caribou is a Logia class Devil Fruit which allows him to transform into, create, and control a mud-like substance. This Fruit also grants a Hammerspace like power that allows Caribou to swallow up and store things within his body; presumably, this ability comes from quicksand being a huge threat in swamps as well as countless stories of people wandering into them and disappearing.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Caribou, both times in his mini-arc.
    • When Caribou is captured by some G5 Marines, the rest of his crew shows up to save him. His idea of thanks is to take their ship during the fighting and leave them behind.
    • Later, when an old lady nurses Caribou back to health, the first thing he does as soon as she falls asleep is to steal some food and jewelry from her. Then it's subverted as he later comes around to save her from one of Kaido's men.
  • Villainous Rescue: In Caribou's cover arc he and his crew saves an island that was oppressed by one of Kaido's men while disguised as revolutionaries, all to help an old lady who nursed Caribou to health after he was marooned.
  • What You Are in the Dark: He has the perfect chance to escape Kaido's favorite island while Kaido's men attack and his own crew rescue him. He could easily run away with no one stopping him or even having to explain what happened; it would even be the smart thing to do. He decides to go back and save Gaburu's grandma anyway.
  • The Worf Effect: Caribou's one-hit defeat at the hands of Mr. Pekoms seems to exist mainly to showcase that it takes more than just a Logia and a 210 million bounty to last in the New World.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: A rare villainous example during Caribou's cover story - of course, since he's kind of a jerk, it's more funny to see him constantly yanked back to life-threatening peril. Even when Caribou wins and things are looking good for everyone, he doesn't catch a break: After beating Scotch and taking down the weapons factory, he immediately gets attacked by what looks to be Timeskip X.Drake, who is almost certainly WAY out of Caribou's league.

"Huh?! I wasn't listening! I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry!"

Caribou's brother and co-captaion of the Caribou Pirates, "Blood Splatterer" Coribou has a bounty of 190,000,000. While Caribou is a bloodthirsty murderer, Coribou's a nervous, stuttering, and oblivious wreck.


  • Dumb Muscle: Coribou seems to fill the bill — no real tactics, no clever strategy. He just follows his Bro-bro's instructions.
  • Fat Bastard: Coribou's much more overweight than his brother.
  • Gatling Good: Unlike his brother, Coribou relies on a massive hand-cranked Gatling Gun to fight. Caribou uses this, too, keeping one in his chest as a surprise attack.
  • Gonk: Like his brother he's very unsightly.
  • Head Pet: Coribou seems to have an Iguana on his head for hair.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Coribou is always seen with a toothy frown, as shown in the folder image.
  • Serial Killer: Him and his brother became infamous for killing Marines and burying them alive.
  • Sibling Team: Works together with his brother Caribou, doing whatever "Bro-bro" tells him to do.
  • The Starscream: Like his brother they join the Imposter Straw Hats to kill them for the fame.
  • Why Won't You Die?: Coribou constantly gets left for dead or worse by Caribou, and somehow he manages to ALWAYS come back to his big bro; Crew and Ship and all. Crushed by a Kraken 1000 meters under the sea and drowning? Ship burnt by G-5 Marines and being horribly tortured? Don't worry, they're fine.

    "Marriage Proposal" Lola 

"Marriage Proposal" Lola

Voiced by: Aya Hisakawa (JP), Alex Moore (EN)

Age: 24 (Pre-Timeskip), 26 (Post-Timeskip)

Debut: Chapter 476 (Manga), Episode 370 (Anime)

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

"If you ever run into any troubles, just ask my mama to help you out, ok? And tell her that I'm ok while you're at it!"

Lola is the captain of the Rolling Pirates. She is desperately seeking a love life and has proposed over 4,000 times. During her introduction, she and her crew were members of the Thriller Bark Victim's Association, a group of people whose shadows were taken from them by Gecko Moria, with her shadow placed inside a warthog zombie that shared the same name as her. She joined forces with the Straw Hats to get their shadows back. After the adventure on Thriller Bark, she gave her mother's Vivre Card to Nami.


  • Always Someone Better: It's revealed in Chapter 879 that despite her own skills, Pudding always saw Lola as the better chocolatier, which in turn made Lola the rightful holder of the position as Minister of Chocolatown, which had been left vacant for years after Lola ran away. She kept avoiding replacing her because she thought herself as unsuitable for the job, and hoped Lola would one day come back and become Minister again.
  • Arranged Marriage: Defied. She was set to marry the Prince of the giants, Loki, who was completely smitten, which would form a powerful alliance with the giants that would also help Lola's mother become more powerful, if not King of the Pirates. Lola wanted to find someone of her own choosing, so she ran away, angering Big Mom enough to want to kill her.
  • Black Sheep: Much of her family sees Lola as this, after she ran away from her Arranged Marriage. To the audience, after meeting said family, she's the White Sheep.
  • Blush Sticker: Has two red dots on her face, one on each cheek. A trait she shares with her twin sister.
  • Cain and Abel: Subverted with her twin sister Chiffon, who knows of Lola's naïveté and is worried about Big Mom going after her ever since Lola ran away from her Arranged Marriage, and has been plotting with Capone "Gang" Bege to kill her mother so her sister will be safe. However, it's played straight with her other siblings — while it appears to be a subversion when they are all shocked to find Luffy and Nami carrying Lola's Vivre Card and assume the worst happened, a few of them later appear to be completely fine with their mother's plan to kill her, with Lola's brother Opera preparing to torture Nami for Lola's current location had Jimbei not walked in.
  • Chekhov's Gun: At the end of the Thriller Bark arc, she gives Nami a Vivre Card leading to her mother, a powerful pirate. While said mother turns out to be the very antagonistic Big Mom, it also radiates enough of Big Mom's soul, thanks to Big Mom's Devil Fruit, that the homies brought to life by her power instantly stopped attacking Nami the second she pulled it out.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Her mother is said to be a powerful pirate, and is most-likely bound to play a big role later in the story. Later revealed in Chapter 835, her mother is Charlotte Linlin, a.k.a Big Mom, one of the Four Emperors. This also makes her a Walking Spoiler.
  • Cool Big Sis: She was one to her younger sister, Pudding. She gave her a pat on the head before she ran away from home, and Pudding admires her enough to refuse becoming the Minister of Cacao Island after Lola's departure left it vacant, feeling her big sister would be a better Minister than her.
  • Determinator: She's really dead-set on finding a husband who'll accept and love her. Fortunately, she can take rejection well. During the events of Wano, she finally succeeds in marrying Gotti of Bege's crew, ironically marrying a member of the same crew her sister Chiffon married to.
  • Dual Wielding: Carries two swords across her back, and while she is never seen using them in battle, the fact that her zombie was very capable at using two axes might indicate this.
  • Engaging Conversation: Just by meeting Luffy, Lola says he's cute and asks him to marry her. It's implied she's this quick to ask any man to marry her considering how many times she's been rejected.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She's the "Loved One" in question, and played with. The "evil" in question is her family, Charlotte Family. When it seems that Lola's siblings care for her, they were shocked when they discover Luffy and Nami were carrying Lola's Vivre Card and assumed the worst, asking for her last words. However, a few of said siblings were later seen being totally fine with Big Mom's plan to kill their sister, with Lola's brother Opera preparing to torture Nami to get Lola's location out of her. Big Mom herself hates her guts, contrary to what Lola assumed of her mother. Her twin sister, Chiffon, is among the few of her family who genuinely cares for her... and she's a Token Good Teammate.
  • Fallen Princess: The estranged runaway daughter of the queen Big Mom, a former resident of Tottoland and the former minister of Chocolate Island. She's totally fine with her new life as a pirate captain, but she's unaware that her family hates her guts for running away to the point of wanting to kill her, thinking they still love her and understand her decisions.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The foolish to her twin sister Chiffon's responsible. When Nami talks to Chiffon, she is found to be more mature and pragmatic than her twin, and notes that Lola is naive enough to think that their mother still loves her.
  • For Want of a Nail: Lola's mother blames her for the fact that she isn't already King of the Pirates, all because Lola ran away rather than go through with the Arranged Marriage with the prince of the giants, Loki, that had been set up for her. Lola's mother believes that, had the marriage actually happened, the allies and power gained from it would have helped her become King of the Pirates.
  • Gag Lips: Has an oversized pair of red lips. She shares them with her mother, father, and twin sister.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Pretty much the way to recognize her as female (with... that kind of face) is her hair, which she styles into braids. Averted in Chapter 848 during Pudding's flashback, where she wore her hair in a short bob with a bow on her head.
  • Gonk: She's not very high in the looks department, which may be why her marriage proposals keep getting rejected. Though she's not much better looking than her zombie, which was a warthog. Her immediate family, including her mother, father, and twin sister share the Gonkiness, too.
  • Gonky Femme: She may be a large woman with a big, odd face, but she's still quite ladylike and wants someone to marry her. Not to mention, her Japanese voice is quite feminine-sounding, too.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: She assured the Straw Hats that her mother would lend them a hand if they ever got in trouble. Later chapters show that said mother, Big Mom, is very cruel, insane, and anything but helpful. Later lampshaded by her twin sister, who correctly figures that Lola is so "happy-go-lucky" that she probably doesn't even realize their mother hates her guts.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: She has a twin Charlotte Chiffon with the same Gonky face. However, Lola has braided hair and has a tooth gap. Her twin has Girlish Pigtails and a bow in her hair similar to one Lola had before running away.
  • I Have No Son!: Lola's mother seems to have disowned her for running away from a crucial Arranged Marriage, and wants to have her killed for her disobedience.
  • Love Freak: See Marry for Love below.
  • Marry for Love: Her main goal, which is why she proposed to random people over 4,000 times. She hasn't succeeded yet, though, due to her Gonky face. It's later revealed that her desire for true love caused her to run away from a political marriage with the giants' prince, Loki, which would help her mother become King of the Pirates had it not fallen through. Even though Lola's suitor was one of the first, and so far only, people to fall in love with her, the fact that the groom was already chosen didn't sit right with her.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": Participates in one during the Thriller Bark arc, as everyone watches Gekko Moriah unleashes "Shadow Asgard".
  • Naïve Everygirl: Romantic, innocent and clueless. The clueless bit comes from her still thinking that her mother wouldn't kill her after running away from the most important marriage she had ever arranged.
  • Name's the Same: Invoked. Both she and her zombie (i.e the undead humanoid warthog that had her shadow) have the same name. Most zombies bear the name they had when alive- for example, the zombie Ryuuma has Brook's shadow.
  • Nice Hat: A tiny bowler hat. She later ditches the bowler for a small, flowered, dark Stetson hat post-Time Skip.
  • Not Good with Rejection: Averted. Despite having had proposed over 4,000 times, she's totally fine with being rejected. Her zombie, however, plays it straight.
  • Odd Name Out: The rest of the Charlotte family is named after sweets or musical acts. It helps cement her status as the White Sheep.
  • Plucky Girl: Refused to budge while the sun was actively disintegrating her, because she had already decided to put her faith in Luffy to get everyone's shadows back.
  • Rescue Romance: Because of her desire to find her true love, when she's saved by Gotti, Lola kisses him and asks him to marry her, much to his astonishment.
  • The Runaway: Lola's mother arranged for her to marry the giants' prince, Loki, which would ally the Big Mom Pirates with the giants, and help her mother become King of the Pirates. Lola wanted to find a husband of her own choosing, so she ran away from home.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: It is unlikely that any fictional character has tried harder to find a husband than Lola has, having asked 4452 men to marry her, including all of the male members of the Straw Hats, even the non-human Chopper and the undead Brook. They all said no. If her appearance doesn't turn them away, her habit of coming on too strong will; it tends to be the first thing she asks upon meeting men. Luckily, she takes rejection in stride, and she still shows no signs of giving up.
  • Spanner in the Works: Chapter 847 reveals that Lola was supposed to marry the giants' prince, Loki, who could help her mother become the King of the Pirates. Her running away put her mother's plans down the crapper; this is why there are no giants on Totto Land and why Lola's twin sister got smacked if she and their mother met. Lola's mother's hatred for her is to the point where she sends Opera, Lola's brother, to interrogate the captured Luffy and Nami for Lola's location so she can kill her.
    • The Vivre Card she gave to Nami also allowed Nami to control Big Mom's homies to an extent.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Lola inherited her ugliness, Gag Lips, and too small eyes from her father. She also heavily resembles her twin sister in all but hair. Lola has braids, while her twin has pigtails. In that case it's justified due to being identical twins. Some of her ugliness may have come from her mother, too.
  • Supreme Chef: Chapter 879 reveals that she was a very good chocolatier much like her younger sister Pudding, enough to make her occupy the seat of being Minister of Chocolatown. Pudding was expected to replace her sister as Minister after Lola ran away from a political marriage, but she always refused, seeing Lola as a better cook and a better Minister.
  • Teeth Flying: She has a tooth gap, presumably from her pirate life and the events of the Thriller Bark arc. Flashbacks reveal that all her teeth were still intact before she ran away.
  • The Unfavorite: Lola became this to her family and especially her mother after she ran away from an important Arranged Marriage with the giant prince, Loki. Her disobedience also caused her twin to be horrifically abused by Big Mom whenever the two crossed paths, just for being her identical twin sister. One of Lola's brothers is willing to help interrogate Luffy and Nami for Lola's location so Big Mom can assassinate her. Lola herself is completely unaware of her family's extremely low opinion of her, a fact that her twin comments on, noting that she won't be able to come back home without people trying to kill her.
  • White Sheep: Is this to her family, at least in the audience's eyes, for being a nice, decent person compared to the homicidal, sadistic tendencies made apparent in most of her siblings. Said family, except for her twin sister, at least, sees her as the Black Sheep.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has pink hair.
  • You Wouldn't Shoot Me: She's confident that her mother wouldn't kill her, because they're family. Her twin sister knows far better and states that Lola wouldn't be able to set foot back in Totto Land without being assassinated.

An elderly meteorolgical scientist living on the sky island of Weatheria. He takes in Nami after she is sent there by Kuma and, along with his colleagues, teaches her Meteorology and modifies her Clima-Tact for her.


  • Absent-Minded Professor: Definitely. For one example, when Nami panicked and got sad due to being separated from her friends, he tried to cheer her up with a Wind Knot; failing to realize that the gusts created by them are strong enough to send a person flying.
  • Blow You Away: He has a special piece of rope called a "Wind Knot".
  • Cool Old Guy: He's pretty goofy but he's quite the clever fellow. He fits the bill a lot more after the timeskip, where he and some other fellow scientists on Weatheria have taken up fashion and ditched the dated wizard's garb for more rad clothing.
  • Extreme Doormat: He always lets Nami get away with abusing him. Probably because he knows he can't stop her.
  • Miniature Senior Citizens: He's shown to be extremely short in the anime, though he's tall and wiry like the other residents of Weatheria in the manga.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a blue pointed hat that matches his wizard-like robe.
    • As of Chapter 825, he and the other Weatherian scientists are wearing new stylish clothes so they can impress Nami next time they see her. Now he has a black bowler-like hat with goggles to match his new black suit.
  • Punny Name: It basically translates to "bringing out clear skies".
  • Rain Aura: Its actually more of a Rain Sphere.
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: He looks like a stereotypical wizard right out of Hogwarts.
  • Verbal Tic: "Oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi..."
  • Wizard Beard: He looks like a wizard (as does most Weatherians) and has a long white beard.
