Sky People

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

10,000 meters above the sea, some people have, against common sense, managed to live on solid clouds (forming the White Sea) and adapted to the oxygen-poor environment. These people, recognizable by the small wings on their back, used to mind their business in Skypeia until 400 years ago, half of Jaya where the Shandian lived was blown up into the sky, starting a war to defend the homeland for one side and to exploit the coveted earth (called "vearth") for the others as it is essential for agriculture in the sky. The war actually continued until Eneru and his goons came and took the Skypeia's throne for himself, only to go away thanks to the Straw Hats.

The Sky People are unused to many otherwise common elements such as rubber and have developed their own unique culture because of their isolation. However, they make ample use of "Dials", seashell-looking items that can store many things, such as sound, fire, or even impacts.

Skypeia is the most prominent sky island as it has been visited by the Straw Hat crew, but the lore indicates that other similar places above the clouds.

    In General 
  • Ambiguously Human: Not much is commented on it, but the wings on their back implies that the Sky People are quite distinct from the other human races, even the Longarm Tribe and Snake-Necked people. Then we find out that ruins on the Moon indicate that their origins may be from outer space, and they used the moon as a base.
  • Our Angels Are Different: Their wings are never seen or mentioned to be functional. In fact, the only person who seems to comment at all on their appearance is Sanji, and only with respect to the women. The fact that the Shandorians seem to have had wings even before they were, ahem, relocated just makes it more peculiar.
  • Winged Humanoid: Skypiea is inhabited by three races of winged people: the Shandians, the Skypieans, and the Birkans. Their wings are purely vestigial, though, and do not provide flight. They do make some of them look like angels, at least.

Age: 19 (Pre-Timeskip), 21 (Post-Timeskip)

Birthday: May 20th

Debut: Chapter 239 (Manga), Episode 154 (Anime)

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

A winged girl from Skypiea. She welcomes the Straw Hat and befriends them.


  • Badass Adorable: She is far tougher than she looks: when a soldier goes to attack her, she reflexively flips her burn bazooka and holds it at his torso, point blank.
    "Don't come any closer. This is a burn bazooka... I'll use it."
  • BFG: She wielded a bazooka during her CMOA.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: To force the other Skypians to listen to her and begin evacuating, Conis loudly declares that Eneru is no god. Everyone panics expecting Eneru to strike her down on the spot, yet nothing happens due to Eneru being busy. This gets the crowd to finally pay attention.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She has blonde hair and is a Nice Girl.
  • Harp of Femininity: She likes to play a harp in her spare time and is even known as "the beautiful lady who plays the harp" among the boys of her village.
  • Nice Girl: She's a real sweetheart in both personality and looks.
  • Our Angels Are Different: She isn't technically an angel, but looks a lot like one: her looks (pink dress, long blonde hair, sandals, wings...) make Sanji mistake her for an angel when the Straw Hats meet her.
  • Pink Is Feminine: Wears a pink dress as part of her regular uniform.
  • She's Got Legs: Her legs get shown quite a lot due to her wearing a dress.

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

Conis's father. He's just as nice as his daughter, but has the curious habit of apologizing very often for any reasons.


  • Apologises a Lot: He apologizes all the time, even for things that really aren't his fault.
  • Disney Death: He was thought to having been killed by one of Eneru's lightning, but he later turns out to be still alive.
  • Eyes Always Shut: For some reason, he always keeps his eyes closed.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He manages to push his daughter out of the way from one of Eneru's lightning while he seemingly dies because of it. It's later subverted when he is revealed to have survived.
  • Mr. Exposition: Along with his daughter, he spends a lot of time explaining how things work in Skypiea to the Straw Hats (and the audience).
  • Nice Guy: Like his daughter, he's a very friendly guy.
  • Winged Humanoid: Just like everyone on Skypiea, he has a pair of wings.

    "Knight of the Sky" Gan Fall 

"Knight of the Sky" Gan Fall

Voiced by: Joji Yanami (JP), John Swasey (EN)

Age: 66 (Pre-Timeskip), 68 (Post-Timeskip)

Birthday: December 22nd

Debut: Chapter 237 (Manga), Episode 153 (Anime)

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

A knight who was once "God" of Skypeia but was dethroned by Eneru. After which he patrols the kingdom as a knight to secure as much of its safety as he can from Eneru's megalomania.


  • Air Jousting: Engages in some against Shura and would likely have won if Shura didn't use invisible strings to tie him down and hold him still.
  • Blade on a Stick: A Jousting Lance to be specific, which helps him keeping his Don Quixotesque appearance.
  • Failure Knight: He became this after he got overthrown by Eneru, trying to keep his subjects secure in his own way.
  • Fee Fi Faux Pas: Starts quite a bit of trouble when he tells Wyper that he enjoyed eating pumpkins.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: He’s a heroic figure clad in silver armor.
  • Non Sequitur, *Thud*: Parodied. He starts explaining Skypiea's history to the Straw Hats out of nowhere, leading to Usopp asking if he hit his head.
  • Pegasus: His pet bird, Pierre, ate the Horse-Horse Fruit (Uma Uma no Mi) which allows it to become one. It's... actually rather ugly.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Unlike Eneru, he's aware that "God" is supposed to just mean being the leader and watcher of Skypiea, and he also has peaceful talks with the Shandian chief.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name has been spelled in a number of ways. Fans aren't sure if it's supposed to be Gan Fall, Gun Fall, or Ganfor. For the record, the English manga uses "Ganfor", but the Funimation dub and subtitles use "Gan Fall".
  • "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: From The Decks of the World shows that he continues to passionately grow pumpkins, although now the pumpkin patch is located right next to the Golden Bell. He even keeps good relations with the Shandian chief, even having glasses of pumpkin juice together.

God Eneru and His Army

    "God" Eneru 

"God" Eneru

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (JP), Wayne Grayson (EN, 4Kids, Grand Adventure only), J. Michael Tatum (EN, Funi)

Age: 37 (Pre-Timeskip), 39 (Post-Timeskip)

Birthday: May 6

Debut: Chapter 254 (Manga), Episode 167 (Anime)

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

"God does exist in this world... and that god is me."

The tyrannical "God" of Skypiea. After eating the extremely powerful Rumble-Rumble Fruit (Goro Goro no Mi), a Logia type fruit that allowed Eneru to become and create lightning, he began to believe that he was literally a god and usurped control of Skypiea from its rightful ruler.

Eneru uses his Sinister Surveillance to smite those who would defy his will, whether they be Skypieans or the Shandian Tribe, whose ancestral homeland he made his own. By the time of the Straw Hats' arrival, he's putting his plan of returning Skypiea to nothing before departing for the promised land, "Fairy Vearth", with four other chosen ones into motion.


  • Afro Ass Kicker: As revealed in an SBS, under his cap there is a huge perm.
  • A God Am I: Played with in that "God" is actually just the title of Skypiea's ruler, but thanks to his powerful Devil Fruit, he thinks he's an actual god, therefore he considers any of his actions justified.
  • Arc Villain: One of the most powerful antagonists, who introduced a type of Haki, but he's never appeared in the series since his defeat in his own arc. Still, he's very impressive, and in fact has the second-best combat performance of any Arc Villain in this series, after Magellan.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Incredibly arrogant. He even takes a nap in the middle of a battle, confident that his opponent could not possibly hurt him. He's correct.
  • Artistic License – Physics: While Rubber is indeed an insulator, there is a limit to how much electricity it can take- and several hundred million volts is way beyond that limit, and the searing heat alone should have left Luffy a charred corpse. In other words, Eneru should have won. The only reason he doesn't win is that Luffy's rubber body isn't just a conventional kind of rubber, but a strange, Devil Fruit super rubber beyond what humans can manufacture, much like Wapol's unique Wapometal.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Can turn into a giant electrical being with the Amal technique. Sadly for him, it's also a Clipped-Wing Angel against Luffy, since it just turns him a bigger target.
  • Ax-Crazy: Casually murders a lot of people, including his own men, because he's playing a "Survival Game" of his own invention. In fact, Eneru is probably the most legitimately insane character in the series: he has a god complex despite knowing that his powers come from a Devil Fruit, he deems other people "mortals", and his ultimate plan is to destroy Skypiea simply because he finds its floating in the sky too unnatural while he heads off to the moon because he believes it's his personal Promised Land.
  • Bad Boss: Since he considers himself a god, while all the others are mere "mortals", he doesn't care less about them and is not afraid to pull a You Have Outlived Your Usefulness. Sometimes, he even kills his own men out of pure enjoyment.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Sort of. While he doesn't actually beat Luffy, he does succeed in his goal of going to Fairy Vearth. At the same time, Luffy prevents him from destroying Skypiea, but the latter doesn't have any bearing on the Fairy Vearth goal.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: He can walk around the moon comfortably without any visible breathing apparatus.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Downplayed, but once he actually reaches the moon like he wanted, he seemingly spends a ton of time there being bored and lonely until he finally meets the Clockwork Creature race that lives there.
  • Believing Their Own Lies: While knowing that, in the Sky Islands, "God" is merely a title for an island's leader, Eneru's Lightning-based Rumble-Rumble Fruit powers combined with the near-omnipotence granted by his enhanced mind-reading Mantra ability convinced him that he truly is divine.
  • Big Bad: The main antagonist of the Skypiea Saga.
  • Bolt of Divine Retribution: His most common attack is El Thor (the kanji for it reading "God's Judgement"), which he uses to smite any and all who defy him, even at great distance, thanks to his Mantra/Observation Haki that allows him to hear the people's thoughts in a wide range.
  • Break the Haughty: The realization that Luffy is his Man of Kryptonite and is completely immune to his attakcs leaves him quite shocked. He recover pretty fast, as he finds a way to avoid Luffy's advantages.
  • The Chessmaster: He turned a Shandian uprising, and the Straw Hats' adventures, by having his men pounce on both sides into a "Survival Game", predicting the likely outcome in an hour of his enforced big battle to five people standing. Of course, this is all to find people worthy enough to join (or rather, survive) his genocidal campaign against Skypiea aboard the Maxim into Fairy Vearth.
  • Clipped-Wing Angel: 200 Million Volt Amal looks impressive, but it only provides Luffy with a bigger target. It's quite telling that a large mass of lightning has to fall back on a now relatively tiny trident to actually do anything.
  • Compressed Hair: Has his blond afro tucked under his headband (which is only seen in the SBS so far). Could count as a Funny Afro too.
  • Cool Starship: The Ark Maxim, a giant arc built for him and his four chosen ones to reach Fairy Warth. It's made of gold and can reach the moon! It's also fueled by his own electricity
  • Combat Clairvoyance: His Mantra (actually a form of Haki) allows him to read opponents' minds and predict their movements; when he combines it with his Devil Fruit's ability to feel the electromagnetic currents in the air, he's effectively omniscient.
  • Convection Schmonvection: Zigzagged. He uses the heat created from a continuous surge of lightning to melt and reshape gold, such as his staff and his ark. However, even though Luffy's rubber body doesn't conduct electricity, he still shouldn't come out unscathed from large bursts of lightning that melt holes in walls, though he is burned by the staff and the large golden ball Eneru welds around his arm.
  • Death from Above: Having his powers be derived from lightning, this is inevitable. His strongest technique, Raigou, can wipe out whole islands in one go.
  • Dirty Coward: A slight variation but after he knocks Luffy off the Maxim in their first fight. He tries all he can to avoid another confrontation with him. Sure he keeps up the arrogant demeanor but one gets the feeling he's actualy scared of him since it's probably the first time in awhile someone's laid hands on him. When Luffy suceeds in getting back into the air, he quickly goes to his most powerful form to take him out.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Is always seen barefoot, though with a couple of rings on his toes.
  • Evil Laugh: Yahahahaha.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: One of Morikawa and Tatum's lower voice roles.
  • Fatal Flaw: His arrogance. It prevented him from focusing on any possible threats to him, which is why Wiper was able to catch him off guard and use his Reject Dial on him, and led to his surprise that Luffy could actually hurt him.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Chats calmly with Robin about archaeology and the beauty of Shandora; he also thinks he's a god, and he has a fondness for destroying islands. He also challenges some of his servants to guess how many will be left at the end.
  • For the Evulz: All his motivation for destruction Skypiea сan be characterized by this trope.
  • Genius Bruiser: Is very knowledgeable about the Blue Sea and knows quite a bit about archeology, metallurgy, and designing and building space ships. And yet oddly, he didn't know rubber exists before encountering Luffy.
  • Genocide from the Inside: Destroyed his home and its people after gaining his powers.
  • "Get Back Here!" Boss: Non video game example. After learning Luffy is immune to his attacks and can actually hurt him, Eneru quickly knocks him off the Maxim. The rest of their "fight" consists of Luffy trying to get high enough to hit him.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: During Luffy's first fight with him, he managed to graft gold into the shape of a ball around Luffy's arm and kicks him off the Maxim to get him out of the way. Luffy however manages to get back in the air and uses said ball to not only stop Eneru's energized death ball that would've destroyed all of Skypiea (as the ball acts a conductor taking in all of the electricity and neutralized by Luffy's rubber body), but then deliver a monster of a punch to Eneru, crashing him into the golden bell, both defeating the villain and achieving his goal of ringing it. Probably didn't help that Eneru made himself a bigger target.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Since a floating island is clearly the most unnatural thing in this series, it must be vaporized.
  • "Instant Death" Radius: Thanks to his enhanced Mantra and the nature of his powers, he can attack people far outside of their range.
  • Invincible Villain: There is no one, save for Luffy and really strong Haki users that can challenge him. No one. Robin even stated that his Logia power, The Rumble-Rumble Fruit, is one of the few that truly boasts invincibility.
  • The Juggernaut: Until he fought Luffy, no one could even slow Eneru down. Every Hope Spot his opponents had was quickly rendered null and void.
  • Karma Houdini: Despite being one of the most psychotic and unrepentant villains in One Piece, Eneru gets away with nothing more than a few bruises from Luffy, actually achieving his original goal following his defeat. By comparison, other Big Bads usually had all their evil dreams and goals completely crushed, except for Laughably Evil Buggy the Clown, who only suffers many comedic humiliations. At most, he simply wasn't able to take the Golden Bell with him. However, he's now somewhere where he will likely never bother anyone on the planet ever again: the Moon.
  • Lack of Empathy: Eneru cares only about himself; everyone else is no different from a common rock as far as he's concerned.
  • Lean and Mean: He's quite tall, and while his body is muscular, it's also overall rather wiry compared to some other men in the series.
  • Light Is Not Good: The color of Eneru's lightning (yellow in the manga, bluish-white in the anime) are normally good guy colors. He also wears a lot of white and considers himself to be God.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Pun intended. He's as fast as lightning, can create and launch massive thunderbolts, and is one of the strongest opponents Luffy ever faced. Physically strong as well - he powered through a ton of hits from Luffy, including Axe (which put down Arlong plus his whole castle) and Bazooka (which shattered Krieg's armor and sent the likes of Buggy and Wapol into different time zones).
  • Made of Iron: Even with Luffy cancelling out his electric abilities, he's still a pretty tough guy to keep down.
  • Magical Defibrillator: He IS one. When a well-placed chest shot from Wiper's Reject Dial stops his heart, he automathically uses his own Logia powers to restart it.
  • Morality Pet: Rescues a race of cute robots from space pirates during his cover story, and ends up living on the moon with them.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Being a Logia made of lightning, he's completely invulnerable to strikes not imbued with Haki; Luffy's rubber body is the one exception.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His appearance is based off Eminem.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: In terms of humanoids, he has enormously elongated earlobes. In terms of Birkans, the race he hails from, he has no wings, just a giant magtama ring sticking out his back where wings would be. Some of the fandom is inclined to think Eneru once had wings, but something happened that caused him to strip him of these wings and make Eneru end up the way he is now, all hedonistic and god-complexed. At least one fanart out there tries to visualize this.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Has an absolutely epic one when he realizes that Luffy is immune to his electrical attacks. In the manga, the face he made took an entire page, while the anime was a bit more low key about it.
    • He gets another at the end of the same fight when Luffy prepares to finish him off with with a Gomu Gomu no Rifle, and he is too injured from the Gomu Gomu no Octopus Fireworks to dodge.
    • Likewise he gets one in his final battle with Luffy who rockets the golden ball straight at him. Eneru knows it's coming but finds it's too fast to dodge or counter against (especially since he made himself a bigger target) before it slams right into his smug face.
    • He gets a less stellar, but still very satisfying, one earlier when he realizes that Wyper is about to use the Reject dial on him.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: He tries to destroy Skypiea because he feels a land in the sky is unnatural. Also infamous for obliterating his own sky island before coming to Skypiea.
  • One-Man Army: Not only insanely strong, he's able to sense every being in Skypiea, phases through most attacks, has instantaneous movement over several kilometers, and can form attacks powerful enough to leave meteor-sized craters as collateral damage. And his Mantra allows him to predict an enemy's movement and strategies to beat him before they can even see him. He's pretty much invincible, save for his single weakness against rubber and lack of experience in dealing with people who can actually hurt him.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: He has the power to wipe out islands, and has done so.
  • Pride: Well, you might expect from a man who consider himself a god.
  • Psycho Electro: Even for this series, Eneru is downright insane.
  • Rule of Symbolism: Everything about him, pretty much. His earlobes are stretched like Hindu deities, his blond hair is a sign of divinity in ancient South American civilizations, his ring of drums resembles those worn by Japanese thunder deities, and most of his attack names reference thunder deities in general.
  • Scissors Cuts Rock: While Luffy's Rubber Man powers make him immune to Eneru's powers, Eneru is able to find ways to hurt Luffy by using electricity indirectly, culminating in his tossing Luffy overboard with a gigantic gold sphere attached to his wrist serving as an anchor.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After being defeated by Luffy and waking up from unconsciousness. He decides to leave Skypeia with his tail between his legs on his damaged and barely flying Maxim, figuring it's not worth all the hassle to destroy the islands or retrieve the gold bell anymore. Though one gets the feeling he's fleeing because he's piss scared of Luffy and just making excuse for his cowardice.
  • Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: He makes a prediction about how many people will make it through his "survival game" and when his count is going to be off Eneru considers it a valid solution to blast people down until the numbers match.
  • Shaping Your Attacks: Hino (a bird), Kiten (a wolf), and Jambure (a dragon).
  • Shock and Awe: The Rumble-Rumble Fruit is rather good at doing both.
  • Simple Staff: He primarily wields a simple-looking golden staff. He can, however, melt the ends of his staff with his lightning and then turn it into a spear.
  • Sinister Surveillance: His Devil Fruit-enhanced Mantra enables him to keep tabs on every person on Skypiea.
  • Smarter Than You Look: He outwitted Robin. She didn't see it coming.
  • Smug Snake: Thinks of himself as invincible, and almighty god. Although this is not completely unjustified but exactly this his arrogance led to his defeat at the hands of Luffy. He also believes that except for Luffy in the world there is no one who could resist him. Luffy in his turn is quickly points out that there are many people in the world who could defeat him.
  • Smug Super: To extreme levels, at one point, he goes to sleep to prove that he can even beat an opponent in that handicap.
  • The Sociopath: Going through his personality traits is like reading a sociopath's diagnostic checklist: Incredibly self-centered and arrogant, has an astonishing Lack of Empathy for everything around him, manipulates anyone as he pleases, and is driven by a relentless lust for power and control as well as delusions of grandeur.
  • Sorting Algorithm of Evil: Completely subverted. He is one of the most powerful villains ever introduced in One Piece, easily dispatching every single opponent he went up against with no effort whatsoever, and would have a bounty of 500 million Berries if he were a pirate, more than any other known non-New World pirate, and has such an overloaded powerset that he probably could have done pretty well for himself in the New World as long as he didn't go barking up the wrong tree with some of the more powerful Haki users. The only reason Luffy doesn't die instantly is because he's a Rubber Man, and thus immune to Eneru's powers.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Enel vs. Eneru vs. Ener. Supposedly, they're all fine, but the first is the correct spelling.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Eneru not only can turn into electricity, he's able to sense every being in Skypiea, phases through most attacks, has instantaneous movement over several kilometers, and can form attacks powerful enough to leave meteor-sized craters as collateral damage. And his Mantra allows him to predict an enemy's movement and strategies to beat him before they can even see him. In fact, Eneru was so ridiculously powerful that the story had to let him get away with his master plan to travel to the moon just so he could be Put on a Bus (though fortunately his secondary goal to destroy Skypeia on his way out was ultimately foiled.) Had he appeared in the New World, he probably still would have been a major threat, and given the amount of Haki users running around there, that really says a lot.
  • Superpower Lottery: The Rumble-Rumble Fruit's powers are right alongside the Tremor-Tremor's (Whitebeard's fruit) in both destructive power and range, and the second fastest fruit we've seen so far after the Glint-Glint (Admiral Kizaru's fruit). It's even been stated to have a reputation of actual invincibility, as nothing but the Gum-Gum Fruit can survive a face full of lightning.
  • Theme Naming: Almost every attack he has is based on various lightning and thunder deities.
  • Thunder Drum: Has a ring of drums behind his back, and one of ways he can channel his powers is to pound on the drums.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Based on the chapter bumpers telling what happened to him after Skypiea, He gets to his beloved Fairy Vearth, and becomes disillusioned to an extent when he stays there alone for a long while. However, it turns out a race of mustached robots live on the moon, and he defends them for no real benefit from a group of Space Pirates in fierce battle with their captain. After winning, he then becomes their leader.
  • Unusual Ears: The earlobes have been stretched down to his chest. Luffy doesn't fail to insult him for this.
  • Villainous Breakdown: As he leaves for the moon after losing to Luffy, it's clear that what little sanity he had to begin with is gone, ranting about how Fairy Vearth is for him alone and nobody else can have it. Morikawa and Tatum's unhinged voice acting (Episode 193 for the curious) really hammers it in.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Never wears a shirt.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Luffy alone is immune to his electric attacks and can bypass his intangibility. Eneru's reaction after learning this is priceless. He adapt to it quickly however, and is still defeated after a long and exausting fight.
  • Where I Was Born and Razed: Eneru came to Skypiea after destroying his home island of Birka.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Considering what he thinks of himself, it's not surprising he's not above hitting women.
    • Poor Robin! Zoro angrily tells him that, "She's a woman!", shortly after Eneru strikes her down, and he coldly responds that he's aware of it. Summed up by this quote:
    Eneru:"There's nothing I hate more in this world than a cold, calculating woman."
    • Before this, he fries Laki, telling Wyper that because she attacked him first (to no avail), it doesn't matter whether she's a woman or a warrior.
  • Yellow Lightning, Blue Lightning: An interesting case in that it's both: Eneru's lightning powers are colored yellow in the manga and a more realistic bluish-white in the anime.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Did this to his own men. Shoot, he did this to the entire island of Skypiea!

The Four Priests

    In General 
Eneru has gathered around him four unusually strong individuals, all powerful, rather quirky, and above all, dedicated to jis cause. Those four warriors, called the four priests, are currently overseeing special "ordeals" meant to test newcomers and see whether those newcomers will go with "God" to the Fairy Vearth. Using unique combat techniques and possessing the "Mantra" giving them a small prediction power in combat, the priests proved to be fearsome opponents for the Straw Hats, at the time not familiar with Haki.

They are subsequently all defeated by the Shandians and the Straw Hat crew, and exiled on a desert island after Gan Fall becomes, again, the God of Skypiea, save for Gedatsu who has fallen down to the Blue Sea and opened a spring resorts.
  • Co-Dragons: They are Eneru's strongest and most important followers.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: All of them can predict their enemies' actions thanks to Mantra, which is how they call Observation Haki. They are also the characters who introduces the concept of Haki, albeit under a different name, and this make them tough foes for the Straw Hats.
  • Elite Four: They fit the bill, since they are the four most powerful fighters under Eneru.
  • The Exile: Save for Gedatsu, after Eneru's defeat they are all exiled in a desert cloud along with Yama.
  • Meaningful Name: Their name come from the concept and terms of Buddhism:
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: They despise each other, to the point no one is saddened or angered by Satori's defeat, and work together only because they're all Eneru's subordinates.
  • Winged Humanoid: Being Sky People, they all have a pair of white wings which do not have any purpose. In this case the shape is of the Birkans.

"Skybreeder" Ohm

Voiced by: Eiji Takemoto (JP), Scottie Ray (EN, 4Kids), Troy Baker (EN, Funi)

Age: 27 (Pre-Timeskip), 29 (Post-Timeskip)

Birthday: March 25th

Debut: Chapter 241 (Manga), Episode 155 (Anime)

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

"Men live for prosperity, yet for prosperity they fight and die. Thus, wouldn't it be better if they hadn't done anything to begin with? Why must men contradict themselves with their principles... Oh... The sorrow... Fortunately, there is still one way of salvation. All they need to do is to die!"

One of Eneru's priests and the one in charge of the Ordeal of Iron, which has a survival rate of 0%. In the ordeal, the victims are trapped in a cage of thorned iron cloud strands. On the ground there are multiple pressure plates that, when stepped on, cause the dials to eject barbed wires of clouds which shred the victims. If the traps don't do the job, Ohm himself deals with the victims.

He's a calm and serious fighter. He considers life and greed nothing but burdens that cause sorrows, therefore he honestly wants to save people by killing them.

He's also a strong fighter, as proven by his trial which has a survival rate of zero percent. His weapon, Eisen Whip, is a katana with a cloud blade that can change shape, becoming a fork, a sword, a whip or even a wall. He also owns a giant dog, Holy, which he trained and taught martial arts to, that fights alongside him.


  • Bald of Evil: He lacks hair and is the most dangerous out of Eneru's priests.
  • The Beastmaster: He has trained a huge white dog named Holy. Now he can even walk on two legs and box!
  • BFS His sword is almost as long as he is tall, and he can still swing it like it weighs nothing. Possibly Justified, since it's made of Iron Cloud and not actual iron.
  • Bilingual Bonus: "Eisen" is German for "Iron", fitting for a sword.
  • Blade on a Stick: One of Eisen Whip's many forms is that of a spear.
  • Combat Commentator: While fighting during the last part of Eneru's survival game, whenever someone is defeated, he shouts the number of remaining combatants, counting even the animals.
  • Cool Shades: Wears a pair of cool sunglasses.
  • Implausible Fencing Powers: Even counting the ability of change form, one wouldn't expect the katana to cut stone.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Of course, his shapeshifting weapon's main form is that of a katana.
  • Morph Weapon: His weapon, Eisen Whip, is a katana which, thanks to its Iron Cloud blade, can turn into a whip, a wall, a trident and a spear.
  • Nietzsche Wannabe: Thinks that life is full of burdens therefore he claims that by killing people, he saves them.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Says to Zoro "Make your last prayer to god, swordman of the Blue Sea" before striking the finishing blow. However, Zoro's 108 pound cannon proves to be stronger.
  • Prongs of Poseidon: His sword can become a trident too.
  • Scary Black Man: He has dark skin and is a very dangerous villain.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: Of course, the toughest priest wears only a tanktop on his muscular body.
  • Smug Super: He's really confident of his ability and looks down on the other fighters. Still, if his ordeal has a survival rate of zero it means he has managed to kill any victim so far.
  • Soulsaving Crusader: What he sees himself as. He believes that, by living, men suffer and are sad, therefore it's better if he kills them.
  • The Stoic: Save for a few tears shed when he explains the burdens of life, he remains calm and collected all the time.
  • Sword Beam: With his katana, he can send slash waves that can destroy multiple stone walls.
  • Tender Tears: As proof that he genuine believes in what he does, he cries when talking about his philosophy.
  • This Cannot Be!: He never expects Zoro to slash through his attack and gets caught completely off-guard before being defeated.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He genuinely wants to save everyone... by killing them, so they won't be sad anymore.
  • Whip It Good: Eisen Whip can become a whip too (as you might have guessed by the name) though he uses the whip form to shoot projectile-like attacks more than an actual whip.

"For the crime of running away, someone must pay for it with his life as "sacrifice". This is the way of the world."

One of God Eneru's priests. He runs the Ordeal of String, which has a survival rate of 3%. In his ordeal, the criminals are tied by almost invisible cloud strings placed by the priest and then finished off. He is cruel to every transgressor and believes that for every crime, someone has to pay, regardless if said person committed the crime or not. He's also very confident of his abilities.

He fights using a javelin with a heat dial which allows it to set its targets on fire. He rides a giant sanjonzo named Fuza which has a flame dial in his mouth, giving the illusion it can spit fire.


  • Adventurer Outfit: Of the airman kind. His outfit is based on an early 1900s aviator and, although he doesn't have a plane, he rides a giant bird named Fuza.
  • Affably Evil: After Chopper asks him for mercy and for him not to destroy the ship, he stops and talks with him about his punishment philosophy, only to ultimately declare that Chopper has to pay for his friends' crime.
  • Badass Mustache: Has a pointed, Dastardly-like mustache. Really fitting for a villain.
  • Blade on a Stick: His Javelin has an heat dial, allowing it to set things on fire.
  • Combat Pragmatist: His preferred method of fighting is to immobilize his opponents with traps made of strong, yet hard to spot, strings, then finish them off. This is how he manages to beat Gan Fall and almost does the same to the Shandians.
  • Dirty Coward: His fighting style shows he doesn't like fighting his opponents head on and prefers to trap his foes in invisible ropes before he strikes them.
  • Fatal Flaw: His overconfidence is what causes him to get caught off guard by Wiper, who defeats him with a Reject Dial.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: To complete his aviator outfit he has a pair of googles, which are more often than not on his forehead, especially during a fight.
  • Kill It with Fire: Both his main attacks rely on using fire, either with Fuza's (fake) fire-breath or with the heat dial in his lance.
  • Knight Templar: He blindly follows the Upper Yard's rules and executes them punishing everyone who commits a crime, and, if he doesn't immediately meet the transgressors, even those who don't.
  • Misplaced Retribution: To him, if someone commits a crime, someone has to pay. Then even those who committed the crime have to be punished to make them realize their mistakes.
  • The Worf Effect: After capturing the Shandia warriors besides Wiper, the latter quickly defeats the priest, making Shura the first to be taken out of the survival game, to show how strong Wiper is.

"To carry a sin is to live in ignorance."

One of God Eneru's four priests. He runs the Ordeal of Balls, which has a survival rate of 10%. In his ordeals the area is filled with "Surprise Balls" (Bikkirutama) which, while all identical, each have a different trap, from an explosion to a giant crab.

He's a playful and sadistic man who enjoys seeing victims going through his ordeal, but quickly panics when something goes wrong. He mainly fights through the various traps inside his Surprise Balls, but also wears a couple of impact Dials in his gloves. Aside from that, he's probably the weakest priest combat-wise and is the least trained in mantra.

He has two younger twin brothers, Otori and Kotori, who look alot like him.


  • Acrofatic: Despite his round body and short limbs, he can swing in the Upper Yard forest quite easily.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After bragging about his status as priest and the punishment for beating him, he begs Sanji for mercy right before receiving a kick on the head.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: The guy who runs the "Ordeal of Balls" has a body as round as a ball.
  • Attack Reflector: His gloves have a pair of Impact Dials, which absorb and then reflect all damage.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Luffy and Sanji underestimate him because of his carefree attitude, and he proves to be a dangerous opponent.
  • Fat Bastard: He's so fat that he's round, and is quite sadistic.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Wears a pair of yellow-shaded glasses and enjoys the sight of the victim fighting to survive his ordeal. It gets broken after Sanji kicks him.
  • Gonk: Not exactly ugly, but his proprtions are quite odd.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His own explosive Orbs attack redirected against him, although it's not what finishes him.
  • Large Ham: His cheerful and carefree behaviour, combined with his near-constant dancing, make him quite the presence.
  • Nonchalant Dodge: Thanks to Mantra, he easily dodges multiple attacks from Luffy, even a Gomu Gomu no Gatling.
  • Oh, Crap!: He panics once Luffy gets the trick behind his "Tama Dragon", followed by an even bigger one when Luffy stops him and he is about to be defeated by Sanji.
  • Perpetual Smiler: He constantly has a smug and childish smile, until Luffy catches him.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He hops and dances while sadistically enjoying Luffy, Sanji and Usopp fighting for their lives against his traps.
  • Signature Laugh: Like many characters, he has a unique laughing style: Ho, ho hooo!
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He has two younger twin brothers, Hotori and Kotori, who basically look more like two clones of him. The only difference between him and them is that he has long red hair and lacks horns (although the latter could have been hidden by said hair).
  • Trap Master: He doesn't directly fight his enemies, but prefers facing them using his countless Surprise Balls, each with a completely different kind of trap.

"Only the weak raises his voice."

One of Eneru's priests. He runs the Ordeal of Swamp, which has a survival rate of 50%, the highest out of all the four ordeals. In his ordeal, there are many sinking clouds and he throws purple clouds on his victims' heads, causing them to drown.

He has many odd habits that make him one of the quirkiest characters of the series (which says alot), like not knowing how to cross his arms properly, thinking instead of talking, forgetting how to blink or even how to eat with his mouth! He's not aware of this and has a subordinate that constantly remembers for him. Despite this, he's a serious and ruthless fighter and doesn't care for his subordinates, even when he accidentally attacks them.

He uses a pair of Milky Dials under his shoes to fly above the sinking clouds, a pair of dials in his sleeves which generate purple clouds to toss against his enemies, and Jet Dials on his left elbow to give strong punches (destroying his suit in the process).

He gets his own Mini-Adventure where, after being defeated by Chopper, he falls onto an island near Alabasta and helps Goro, Kohza's uncle, in building a hot springs resort.


  • Anime Hair: His hair is tied in multiple dreadlocks pointed upward.
  • Badass Armfold: Averted. He cannot properly cross his arms, resulting in a quite funny pose. He plays this straight only once, after he becomes the boss of Blue Sea.
  • Bad Boss: Gedatsu nearly kills a subordinate of his with his Swamp Cloud Burger attack out of incompetence, and his only reaction is to mock said subordinate for having his life saved by Chopper. Then, after his subordinate declares he will no longer obey him, Gedatsu doesn't hesitate to punch him.
  • Blank White Eyes: Parodied. Like all characters in One Piece, when he gets angry, his eyes become completely white. However, he forgets to roll his eyes back, so he cannot see and thinks the others have become invisible.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite all his strange habits, he's still a very strong and competent fighter.
  • Clothing Damage: Downplayed. When he uses the Jet Dial on his left elbow, it destroys part of his left sleeve.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Not only he has many absurd habits, but he's also unaware of them and needs someone else to make him realize what he's doing.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Gets his own mini-adventure: Gedatus's Accidental Blue-Sea Life.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: He accidentally defeats the Dirt Boss, which helps him to dig a tunnel from Alabasta to the hot springs.
  • The Ditz: With all his strange habits and quirks, he's one of the strangest and hilarious characters. He often doesn't remember how to speak or eat, how to properly cross his arms, thinks the things he wants to say or even forgets how to breathe or blink his eyes.
  • Dumb Muscle: Gedatsu can throw out pretty strong punches, but he's very dumb in matters outside of fighting, as demonstrated through his various quirks.
  • Establishing Character Moment: When Chopper asks if he's the priest, he presents himself... in his thoughts. Then a subordinate makes him notice the mistake and he comments that he's been careless.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In his introduction he's one of Eneru's four priests and a Bad Boss toward his subordinates but, during his mini-adventure, he helps a guy he just met to build a hot springs resort.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Chopper defeats him by removing one of his shoes and he ultimately sinks in the clouds of his own ordeal. As if that isn't enough, when he tries to free himself with the remaining cloud dial, since he's upside down, he sinks further until he falls from the clouds.
  • I Just Shot Marvin in the Face: When he uses a Swamp Cloud Burger on Chopper, he accidentally hits his subordinate.
  • Laughably Evil: It's hard to take seriously an evil priest who tries to speak with his lower lip stuck in his mouth.
  • Made of Iron: He survives falling from the sky!
  • Oh, Crap!: When he realizes that Chopper has removed one of his shoes.
  • Rocket Boots: Has a pair of Milky Dials under his shoes to propel himself and help him avoiding sinking in the clouds.
  • Scary Black Man: He's a black guy and an evil priest. Subverted in that he's actually more goofy than scary.
  • Thinking Out Loud: Inverted. Sometimes he thinks what he wants to tell.
  • Too Dumb to Live: It's a miracle that he's still alive when he tries to eat with his ear or forgets how to breathe.
  • Wall Crawl: Somehow, he digs while standing on the wall.
  • Wild Take: While not that extreme, he always makes a surprised face when someone makes him realize his strange quirks. Also when he realizes he hasn't become the "Boss-Man" of the Blue Sea like he'd intended, but the "Bath-Man".

"Enough of this nonsense! Don't forget that this is where God resides!"

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

The commander of the divine soldiers. He's fanatically devoted to Eneru, even moreso than the four priests, yet, at the same time he has no respect for the world around him, as seen when he fights without caring about the ancient ruins he's destroying.

Despite his fat build, he's actually really strong, being able to smash even stone ruins with ease, and agile. In fights, he mostly resorts to physical attacks like punches, kicks and belly drops. He also has a belt with ten Axe Dials sewn on it, often used in combination with his belly attacks.


  • Acrofatic: Despite being ridiculously fat with tiny limbs, he can move around pretty fast.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Once he's immobilized, he says that he's sorry for having broken Shandora's ruins and asks to be freed. Nico Robin replies that what he's done is unforgivable, so he tries to kill her only to be ultimately defeated.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the commander of the divine soldiers, and is much stronger than them. At the same time, he doesn't have the same authority of the priests, who are Eneru's strongest servants.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Easily defeats Genbou with his pure physical strength, then he's on the receiving end against Nico Robin, who manages to deal easily with his attacks.
  • The Exile: After Eneru is defeated and is no longer the God of Skypiea, he's exiled on a desert cloud with Satori, Shura and Ohm.
  • Fat Bastard: His fatness is directly proportional to his level of jerkiness.
  • Fingore: He really pushed Nico Robin's Berserk Button, as the latter, among other things, breaks his fingers.
  • The Fundamentalist: He's completely devoted to Eneru, to the point of calling out the priests for fighting in his temple.
  • Gonk: When you're heavily overweight, you cannot exactly be beauty context material.
  • Hate Sink: There's nothing nice to say about him, making his crushing defeat at the hands of Nico Robin all the more cathartic.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Robin flips his belt and he gets sliced by his own Axe Dials.
  • Jerkass: He's even nastier than the four priests, and when Nico Robin tells him about the Shandora ruins, he destroys them with no care.
  • Large and in Charge: He is really large and he's the leader of the Divine Soldiers.
  • Meaningful Name: Yama means "Mountain" and most of his attacks are named after the word "mountain".
  • Mook Lieutenant: As the commander of the Divine Soldiers, he basically serves as this.
  • Neck Snap: For destroying part of Shandora's ruins, Nico Robin breaks his spine.
  • Razor Wind: Axe Dials create these, especially those around his belt.
  • Smug Snake: He greatly underestimates the Shandia Warriors and the Straw Hats, to the point that he's persuaded that he and his soldiers should be able to defeat them all without any difficulty, even without the priests' help. He has no idea just how wrong he is...
  • Stout Strength: He is really fat, even moreso than Satori, who is basically round, but can smash stone with ease or kick back a cannonball.
  • Verbal Tic: Just like the mook he controls, he often says "Meh", albeith in an hammier fashion.

"C'mon who's Hotori and who's Kotori? Which hand has what? What will we attack with?"

Satori's younger twin brothers and the vice commanders of god's militia. In addition being almost identical to their twin brother, they are just as childish and sadistic as he is. However, they do care for Satori, and are angered by his defeat.

They fight in unison, proving to be a tricky combo for Nami and Gan Fall. Hotori has a Flame Dial and an Axe Dial while Kotori has an Impact Dial and a Flavour Dial. They fight combining their dials and using their identical appearance to confuse their enemies.


  • Acrofatic: They sure hop around quite easily for having such a fat body.
  • Always Identical Twins: There is no physical difference between them and are impossible to distinguish from each other. They exploit this by constantly switching places so their enemies won't know who is who or how each of them will attack. Even their personality is the same.
  • Bald of Evil: The main difference between them and their brother is that they lack Satori's long red hair. They're just as nasty as him, however.
  • Combination Attack: Kotori's smelly gas combined with Hotori's flame causes a big explosion.
  • The Dividual: They are identical both appearance and personality wise and are always seen together.
  • Dual Boss: A non videogame example. They fight together using different tactics to confuse their enemies and make combined attacks with their dials.
  • Elite Mook: Fitting for their position as vice-commanders, they are definitely stronger than the common soldiers, but are weaker than the priests.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: They definitely care for their older brother, and their main motivation for attacking the Going Merry and the people on board is to avenge him.
  • Fartillery: Kotori's Flavour Dial emits a fart-like sound and releases a stinky gas that, if set on fire, causes an explosion.
  • Fat Bastard: They're as round as Satori and just as sadistic.
  • Fireball Eyeballs: Hotori has these after his twin brother is defeated just to show how angry he is.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Just to be even more similar, they wear the same yellow-shaded glasses of their older brother.
  • Gonk: They have the same cartoonish proportions as Satori.
  • Horned Humanoid: Just like all the mooks, they have a pair of small horns.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: To them, it doesn't matter if Sanji and Usopp have been already knocked by Eneru's thunder, they still have to pay and the twins literally kick them while they're unconscious.
  • Large Ham: Clearly the hamminess runs in the family, as they have the same hammy behaviour of their brother.
  • Perpetual Smiler: You wouldn't guess they're angry about Satori's defeat by their constantly happy expressions. Hotori drops his smile when Kotori gets taken out.
  • Playing with Fire: Hotori's left glove has a Flame Dial which does exactly what you would expect from this name.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Remember how Satori dances and laughs while sadistically watching the victims of his trial? Well, they act the same while personally delivering the punishment to their enemies.
  • Razor Wind: Hotori has an axe dial in his right glove which creates cutting wind.
  • Revenge: They are clearly angry that Satori has been defeated, and want to make Sanji and Usopp pay. When Kotori is defeated, Hotori gets even angrier and swear no mercy to Nami and Gan Fall, going into a full Roaring Rampage of Revenge that doesn't last long as he's quickly defeated by Nami.
  • Signature Laugh: They have the same distinct laugh as their older brother, Satori: Ho, ho hooo!.
  • Squishy Wizard: Their attacks are tricky and put even a strong fighter like Gan Fall on the edge (albeith he's been already injured by his fight with Shura) but once Nami and Gan Fall find an opening to attack, they fall down in one hit each.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Admit it, the moment you saw them, you knew they were Satori's brothers. In their own case it's justified, since they are twins.
  • This Cannot Be!: After seeing that Gan Fall has managed to avoid his explosion, Kotori has just enough time to make this reaction before he's defeated in a single attack.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: After Kotori is defeated, Hotori swears he'll have no mercy on Nami and Gan Fall.
  • Troll: Kotori often makes his enemies thinks he's Hotori with a Flame Dial only to attack them with a fart from his Flavour Dial.
  • Trash Talk: During their fight, they keep looking down and insulting Nami and Gan Fall when they fall for their tricks.
  • Underestimating Badassery: They seriously think Nami and Gan Fall won't see through their tricks, and are ultimately defeated in quick succession.

Ohm's dog. He's a giant white-yellow dog that the priest trained and even taught him how to walk on two legs and use martial arts. He's so well trained that he obeys anyone, even his enemies.

He's quite strong, as he defeats multiple Shandia warriors by himself. He fights along his master, Ohm, and assists him in the executions.


  • Action Pet: Not too surprising from a dog the size of a truck. He's a strong fighter and is one of the last combatants defeated.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: He's really quite skilled with martial arts, being able to even deliver Shoryuken-like punches.
  • Blind Obedience: Exaggerated. While it's not strange for a dog to obey his master, he even obeys Zoro's accidental order to "stay put", this despite Zoro being an opponent. The swordman exploits this ordering Holy to knock himself out.
  • Canine Companion: He constantly follows Ohm and fights alongside him.
  • Canis Major: He's so big he can keep Shandian in his mouth and transport Ohm on his head.
  • Dogs Are Dumb: Sure, he must be smart to be able to learn martial arts, but then he obeys Zoro's order to knock himself out...
  • Perpetual Frowner: Save for a few moments when he fights, he constantly has a frown on his face.

One of the Divine Soldiers

The primary soldiers of Eneru's army.


  • Animal Motifs: Their physical appearance (especially their horns and ears) as well as the fact that they are constantly bleating make them look a lot like goats. Luffy even mistakes one of them for an actual goat, and gets disappointed when he realizes he wasn't one.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After being almost killed by his boss Gedatsu, one of the soldiers decides to help Chopper againt him. Unfortunately, he is quickly defeated.
  • Horned Humanoid: They all have a pair of horns, similar to those of a goat.
  • Mook–Face Turn: As mentioned above, a soldier gets saved by Chopper after Gedatsu nearly drowned him with one of his attacks, and subsequently decides to join force with the Straw Hat, but then Gedatsu easily defeats him.
  • Mooks: While they do a fine job at fighting normal Shandians, they are easily defeated when faced against the Straw Hats or the strongest Shandia Warriors.
  • Razor Wind: All of them are armed with Axe Dials, whose power is to create cutting wind.
  • Verbal Tic: Just like their commander, Yama, they all have the habit of frequently saying "Meh!".

Shandians

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

The Shandians are a tribe native to the island of Jaya. Fiercely protective of their homeland, the Jaya have had a violent history against outsiders and when their homeland was by accident blown up high into the sky, they warred against Skypeia to protect their lands. When Eneru came, they were forced out of Jaya, went into hiding, and began a raiding activity.

The elite fighters of the Shandia Tribe comprise the Shandia Warriors. They're at war against God Eneru and his army in order to take their land back from the Skypiean.


  • Badass Creed: "Relight the fire of Shandra!"
  • Badass Crew: They're all formidable fighters who can easily deal with Eneru's mooks.
  • Badass Native: When you have a Badass Crew where the members are based off Native Americans and can hold its own against the likes of Zoro and Luffy, every single one of them is this.
  • Braids, Beads and Buckskins: They clearly have a native-american inspiration. They live in tents just like those of the natives and their clothes and hairstyle mostly follows those of a stereotypical native-american with a modern touch.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Most of them take pride on being strong warriors.

A Shandian, who are a group of natives from the Blue Sea blasted into Skypiea, fighting to reclaim his homeland for his people who were unjustly ousted from it by the Skypieans.


  • Anti-Hero: Acts rather coldly, especially towards strangers, but there's no denying his noble motives.
  • Badass Baritone: He has a deep and booming voice befitting of a warrior..
  • Badass Normal: He fights evenly with Luffy, Zoro, and Eneru himself, and would've actually beaten the latter if not for a Diabolus ex Machina. He gets back up from everything anyone throws at him, and when he does finally go down, it's on his own terms, using the Reject Dial a third time to help Luffy.
  • BFG: His weapon of choice is a Burn Bazooka.
  • Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu: He defeats Eneru using the Reject Dial, which causes a lot damage to him (considering a double use is normally fatal, he gets away pretty good). However Eneru quickly restarts his heart after their battle, meaning Wyper had almost killed himself for nothing.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: He has a Reject Dial which, like Impact Dials, absorbs attacks, but it fires them back at ten times the original force. This is known to kill not only the target, but also the user if used twice.
  • Determinator: The Reject Dial is said to be able to severely harm (if not outright kill) the user when it's used. Dude uses it 3 times trying to defeat Eneru and he still survives, although with almost all of his bones broken.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Of the "too angry to be reasonable" variety. When he sees Aisa with Nami, he tries to "save" her from the pirate by firing his Burn Bazooka at Nami. That this would have incinerated Aisa along with Nami is lost on him, but not her.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Manages to actually catch Eneru by surprise and kill him through the use of the deadly Reject Dial. Unfortunately, Eneru can revive himself using his powers as defibrillator.
  • Generation Xerox: Wyper is described as being very similar to his ancsetor and famous Shandian warrior, Calgara.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: It doesn't take much for him to lose his temper.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he may be violent, he cares very much for his people. By the end of the arc, he becomes much more friendly.
  • Knight Templar: He will destroy anyone who stands in his way in order to Ring the Bell of Shandora, even those who haven't done anything to him. He gets better after Luffy rings it and defeat Eneru.
  • Made of Iron: Normally, using the Reject Dial two times kills the user. He survives using it three times. He's the first person who survives using the Reject Dial more than two times.
  • Noble Savage: He might be "The Berserker", but at the end of the day he's just fighting for the well-being of Shandia and, if you're his friend, he's pretty okay outside of fights.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: He's a Shandian, so it comes naturally.
  • Red Baron: He's known "Wyper the Berserker" (Senki no Wyper) because he can be fierce towards the threats of his land.
  • Smoking Is Cool: He's seen smoking a cigarette, and he's the most badass among the Shandians.
  • Wave Motion Gun: The Burn Bazooka not only fires cannonballs, but also a large blue flame that looks like a laser beam. Amazing what Dials can do.
  • "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue: From Decks of the World shows he became one of Skypeia's Elite Guard. Not bad, considering his attitude to Skypieans before.
  • Winged Humanoid: A common feature of the Shandians including him.

The only prominent female in the Shandia Warriors. However, she isn't as determined in regaining the Upper Yard as the others, and Wiper calls on her for worrying about "minor things", like Aisa's bag of Vearth.

She is very kind, and has a deep relationship with Aisa, comparable to that of two sisters. She's also loyal to Wiper and, although she considers him too violent, she understands his good intentions. However, at the same time, she's not afraid to protest his decisions. After Eneru is defeated, she also becomes good friends with Conis and they even open a restaurant together.

As a Shandia Warrior, she's supposedly quite proficient in battle, and wields a rifle and a small shield.


  • Action Girl: Well, she's a Shandia Warrior, although she doesn't fight many people herself.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Downplayed, since the age difference isn't much more than ten years. Laki, a grown up woman, is really close to Aisa, a kid, and would do anything to make her happy, even collecting Vearth in the middle of a war.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Has a small shield on her left elbow, even though it's size doesn't make it very useful.
  • Made of Iron: Eneru's mighty thunder knocks her out just for a few minutes, after which she's already back standing up.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: After the grudge between Shandia and Skypiea ends, she becomes close friends with Conis, a Skypiean. After the two years timeskip, they've even opened a restaurant, where Laki cooks while Conis serves the customers.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Among the Shandia Warriors, she's the only woman.

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

Birthday: July 10th

Debut: Chapter 249 (Manga), Episode 163 (Anime)

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

One of the Shandia Warriors and among Wiper's most trusted fighters. He's protective of Aisa and Laki, as he warns the former about the danger of the Upper Yard.

He's one of the strongest Shandians, to the point that even Eneru, of all people, praises him, despite not being even close to his level. His weapons are a simple spear and a Burn Blade, which consists of a flaming sword created by a dial.


  • Blade on a Stick: His main weapon is a simple spear, which fits in the tribe's native-theme. He uses it to pierce Eneru's head but, unfortunately for him, the latter has eaten the Rumble Rumble Fruit.
  • Cool Shades: Has a pair of round red-shaded glasses.
  • Curbstomp Battle: The only reason he lasts so long against Eneru is because the latter gives him five minutes to do whatever he wants. After the time is over, Eneru quickly dispatches him.
  • Delinquent Hair: Has a mohawk and, along with the other Shandia Warriors, he takes part in a rebellious attempt to take over from god Eneru and conquer the Upper Yard. Eight years before the start of the story, he used to have braids.
  • Flaming Sword: Bordering with Laser Blade. His Burn Blade has a Breath Dial that can create, in an istant, a long blade made of super hot fire.
  • Made of Iron: He survives Eneru's point-blank attack, despite the latter even accidentally taking out multiple mooks, and manages to stay conscious for enough time to warn Laki about Eneru's power.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: After becoming one of God's guards, he wears a long jacket but keeps it open, revealing there's nothing underneath.
  • Oh, Crap!: After pointlessly attacking Eneru for five minutes, he realizes that none of the Shandia warriors would be able to defeat him.
  • Pelts of the Barbarian: Wears a sleeveless fur vest, and nothing else on his chest. Even after becoming a God's guard, he still keeps it under his coat.
  • Sky Surfing: Unlike the other Shandia Warriors, he doesn't use the Jet Skis, instead flies with a Jet Board propelled by a couple of Breath Dials.
  • Worthy Opponent: Downplayed, since he never consider anyone his equal, but Eneru praises Kamakiri's fighting skills and even gives him five minutes of time to attack him however he wants. Of course, Kamakire cannot hurt Eneru in any way.

    Braham 

Braham

Voiced by: Kenji Nomura (JP), Charles Baker (EN, Funi)

Age: 22 (Pre-Timeskip), 24 (Post-Timeskip)

Birthday:October 10th

Debut: Chapter 249 (Manga), Episode 163 (Anime)

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

One of the Shandia Warriors. Braham is a calm and collected individual but also a merciless and pragmatic warrior. He's also quite confident of his abilities, leading him to underestimate his enemies.

Like most Shandia Warriors, he has a pair of Jet Skys which help him make acrobatic maneuvers in combat, and a pair of guns, each with a Flash Dials. Thanks to the flashes he makes when he shoots, he can dazzle the enemies.


  • Badass Longcoat: After becoming one of God's guards, he wears one as a uniform.
  • Bald of Awesome: When he was younger, he had long, curly black hair. Now he doesn't have any hair, but remains a badass warrior.
  • Combat Parkour: Thanks to his Jet Skys, he can make some impressive maneuvers to dodge his enemies' attacks or reach a good position to shoot them. He can also kick them if they're close enough.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He uses the flashes of his Flash Guns to dazzle his enemies the moment they're about to attack him, so they miss, as seen during the fight with Zoro, where he doesn't allow the swordman to land a strike. He also doesn't hesitate to attack his enemies In the Back.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: After the war, he's seen celebrating with Zoro, the one who has defeated him. Justified since, by then, Shandian and Straw Hats don't have any more reason to fight.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: His hat covers the upper part of his face, including his eyes. He's been wearing said hat since childhood.
  • Fragile Speedster: With his agile maneuvers and pragmatic skills, he's quite hard to hit, but once Zoro manages to slash him, Braham goes down with a single strike.
  • Gun Fu: His gun skills and acrobatic skill combined make him one of Shandia's strongest warriors, to the point of having the edge during his enitre fight with Zoro, except the end.
  • Guns Akimbo: He wields two Flash Guns which have a pair of Flash Dials that allows them to emit a flash of bright light whenever they're shot.
  • The Gunslinger: As you can see from all this tropes, he's quite proficient with his guns, and gives Zoro a run for his money.
  • Gun Twirling: During a fight, he sometimes twirls his guns before shooting his enemies.
  • Let's Split Up, Gang: He's the one who suggests to his companions that they separate so that they'd be harder to find.
  • Pragmatic Hero: While he has overall good intentions and wants the best for his tribe, like all Shandia Warriors, he's not above using cheap tricks in combat and shooting without no mercy an enforcer who has surrendered.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Subverted. At first he thinks Zoro isn't more than the average mook, but after seeing him endure one of his kicks, he comments that he's actually quite strong. Double subverted later on, as he still thinks a swordman with no dials is inferior to him. This overconfidence gets him defeated.

Birthday: February 9th

Debut: Chapter 249 (Manga), Episode 163 (Anime)

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

One of the strongest Shandia Warriors. Due to his limited screentime, not much is known about his personality, save for the fact he doesn't give up even when the enemy is clearly stronger than he is.

His weapon is a bazooka that shoots iron balls which, as Yama comments, is a rarity in the sky. However, this isn't enough for him to defeat the commander of God's army.


  • Badass Longcoat: Wears a cool one as a uniform after becoming one of God's guards.
  • BFG: His main weapon is a large bazooka that shoots iron balls, and iron is a rare material in the sky, this makes his weapon more unique.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: His battle with Yama ends quickly with his defeat.
  • Defiant to the End: Knowing he won't be able to stop Yama's attack, he stands still and just screams "Bring it on, Yama!" before being finished off.
  • Formerly Fat: After the timeskip, he doesn't have the same bulky body as before, even if it's still quite imposing. Either he lost weight, or the coat is really tight
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Yama defects back to him one of his iron balls with a kick, rendering Gendou vulnerable for an attack that knocks him out.

A young Shandian girl who was born with a powerful version of Observation Haki or Mantra. So strong, she doesn't know how to shut it off. As a result, she can tell over a great distance of several miles when people die. She fights with her people to be rid of Eneru and wants peace to come to Skypeia.


  • Blessed with Suck: She has Mantra potent enough to sense people dying and Eneru just decides to start a battle royal between the Strawhats, God's militia and the Shandia warriors. Do the math.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: In the manga, on a couple of covers and special episodes, she's wearing sandals, but in the anime, she's almost always barefoot.
  • The Empath: She was born with Mantra, and can sense people's emotions as well as when they are dying.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's initially distrustful of people, even the Straw Hats, but she's still a good person overall.
  • Kill It with Fire: Her main weapon is a fire axe.
  • Nice Hat: Wore a fur cap most of the time. The two-year Time Skip now has her wearing a "Rubber Band Land" cap.
  • Spider-Sense: "Mantra", more commonly known in the Blue Sea as Observation Haki.
  • Tempting Fate: After Kamakiri scolds Aisa for having been to the Upper Yard, she angrily replies that he can't beat Eneru. Take a wild guess of who he meet during the invasion of the Upper Yard...
  • Took a Level in Kindness: At the start of the arc, she was often grumpy and not prone to trusting a lot of people, but her soft side develops and she learns to open up more as the arc progresses.
  • Winged Humanoid: Like everyone in the Sky Islands.
