Gold Roger "The Pirate King"

File:Roger tv tropes.png

 "You want my treasure? You can have it! I left everything I gathered together in one place. Now you'll just have to find it!"


 Young Voice: Takeshi Kusao (JP)

Older Voice: Chikao Ohtsuka (JP), David Brimmer (EN, 4Kids), Sean Hennigan (EN, Funi)


"Gold" Roger, real name Gol D. Roger, is the great legendary pirate that started the Great Age of Pirates on his execution scaffold twenty-two years ago. His legendary treasure, One Piece, is sought after by pirates the world over, and the one who reaches the hidden island Raftel at the end of the Grand Line and finds it will inherit his title of Pirate King. He just happens to be Ace's dad.

  • Badass: To Shrouded in Myth proportions, but considering that he was not only the “Pirate King” but was rivals with Whitebeard and Garp, completely annihilated Lion Shiki, every member of the crew seems to be undeniably Badass and as the Captain it's implied that he was the strongest member of his crew… Yeah, Badass all the way
  • Badass Mustache: While not as epic as Whitebeard's, Roger has some impressive lip hair.
    • At first, it seemed like they were implied to be nose hair, though.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Specifically invokes this with Garp, reasoning that they are as good as friends given how long they've known each other, and on this principle trusts Garp to protect his newborn son from the Marines. Despite Garp's initial disbelief, it works.
  • Generation Xerox: An odd example. Flashbacks show that in his younger days, Roger really did look almost exactly like Luffy. Despite that, there are no indications that he and Luffy are blood related in any way('D' initial aside, of course).
  • Gun and Sword: Seen wielding both in Chapter Zero.
  • Hidden Eyes: It wasn't until Sabaody Archipelago, over five hundred chapters into the story, that his eyes were shown to the reader.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Not Luffy's, but Ace's.
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: "I won't die... partner."
  • My Name Is Not Durwood: In a flashback, he complains to Whitebeard about the Government calling him "Gold" Roger instead of his correct name.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity : Many people compare Luffy to him, but since he knows Poneglyphs like Robin and her mother fluently, he may be just Brilliant but Lazy.
    • Except that, according to Rayleigh, Roger was only able to read the Poneglyphs through an undefined ability to hear "the voice of all things". Rayleigh goes on to fully admit that the crew lacked the intelligence to fully understand and interpret what the Poneglyph actually meant.
  • Offstage Villainy: Though he is largely a flashback character and thus we haven't seen much of him at all, every flashback always seems to present him positively. By contrast, pretty much every villainous act he's done (slaughtering Squad's crew, for example), is always presented via word of mouth of his victims.
  • Posthumous Character: Being dead, all insights on his character are done through either second-hand information or flashbacks.
  • Secret Legacy: The mysterious Will of D. that a number of characters possess. Apparently, he actually knew what it meant.
  • Thanatos Gambit: His last words about the location of his treasure sparked the Great Age of Pirates.

  • Aunt Pennybags: Very much enjoys Usopp's stories, and gave the Straw Hats the Going Merry.
  • Big Fancy House: Well, she is rich...
  • Hair of Gold
  • Hospital Hottie: Shaping up to be one, at least, considering she's been studying to be a doctor since the East Blue arc. More than qualifies in-universe as well, considering she's been shown to have suitors lining up for her.
  • Ill Girl: Although she gets better soon.
  • Nice Girl
  • Ojou
  • Spoiled Sweet
  • Stop or I Shoot Myself: Threatened to cut her own throat to stop Jango from attacking the Usopp pirates any more. Since she hadn't written the will Jango needs yet, it works.

Yosaku Voiced by: Yasuhiko Tokuyama (JP), Wayne Grayson (EN, 4Kids), Josh Martin (EN, Funi)


A duo of bounty hunters from the East Blue, they used to work with Zoro. Briefly joins the crew during the Arlong Parc arc.

  • Aerith and Bob: Seriously, Yosaku and Johnny?
  • Bounty Hunters
  • Butt Monkey: Both.
  • Cool Shades: Johnny
  • Cool Sword: Nagiri blades, resembling oversized kitchen knives.
  • Mr. Exposition: Yosaku introduces the Seven Warlords and the Fishmen.
  • Ted Baxter: They talk tough and look cool, but they're all talking.
  • Those Two Guys
  • Took a Level In Badass: Despite their weakness and cowardice, after hearing Nami's flashback and seeing her cry they challenged Arlong alone. They were defeated, but they still showed some balls.
    • Yosaku may also have done this after the Time Skip. He's at least gotten very muscular.
  • Yakuza: More like tough guy wannabes, but they call everyone they respect "Aniki" ("Gang brother") or "Aneki" ("Gang sister").

Chef "Red-Leg" Zeff

File:Zeff Timeskip 9959.jpg

 Voiced by: Koji Yada (JP), Robert O'Gorman (EN, 4Kids), Grant James (EN, Funi)


Sanji's mentor, and an ex-pirate, Zeff is a the proprietor of the Baratie. In his pirating days, he spent a year in the Grand Line, and while in the East Blue attacked the ship Sanji worked on. A storm destroyed the ship and his own, leaving him and Sanji to almost starve to death on a barren rock. After being rescued, he set up the Baratie, and taught Sanji how to cook and fight.

  • Auto Cannibalism: In the manga, he ate his own leg so as not to starve to death while on the island. In the anime, this was changed to getting his leg caught in some wreckage while trying to save Sanji from drowning.
  • Badass
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: His legs are powerful enough to destroy boulders and leave foot prints in steel.
  • Chef of Iron
  • Chekhov's Gun: He's the first person seen to refer to the first half of the Grand Line as "Paradise." Why is this significant? Because, 500-some chapters later, we discover that this is the term used for it by New World pirates, referring to the huge difficulty spike between the two seas. Naturally, this has led to a lot of Wild Mass Guessing that Zeff was a New World pirate himself.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He wasn't the nicest pirate, but his rule is DON'T STEAL FOOD, and Heaven help you if you do.
  • Grumpy Old Man: While he isn't that old, he does grump a bit.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Him and Sanji. They first met when the latter was a cabin boy.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Life or Limb Decision: The loss of his leg was because he saved Sanji. The details differ from manga ( eating it himself so Sanji would have enough food to survive) to anime ( while saving little Sanji from the drowning ship, he got caught in the wreckage and it was either cutting it on the spot or both of them dying).
  • Promotion to Parent / Parental Substitute
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Him and Sanji do go at it, but deep down, they care for each other.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Had no qualms kicking Sanji when they first met. And this was before they became friends.

"Demon Man" Gin

File:Nojiko 2957.jpg

 Voiced by: Wakana Yamazaki (JP), Tara Sands (EN, 4Kids), Tiffany Grant (EN, Funi)


Nami's adoptive older sister. Their hometown was destroyed during the war, and she and Nami were among the very few survivors. The orphaned Nojiko found an also orphaned baby Nami among the ruins and carried her around in her arms, until she found their soon-to-be mother Bellemere...


File:Genzo 3882.jpg

 Voiced by: Kozo Shioya (JP), Marc Diraison (EN, 4Kids), Bill Flynn (EN, Funi)


Mayor/sheriff of Cocoyashi.

  • Badass Moustache
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Nice Hat
  • Overprotective Dad: When he sees Nami's wanted poster, his first reaction is to call the Marines and complain...that the sexy picture will attract more suitors than bounty hunters. (Not that it stopped him from blowing it up on his wall...)
  • Parental Substitute: Sorta, while he is not officially Nami and Nojiko's dad, he certainly act like one to the girls.
  • Papa Wolf: He was fine with Arlong allowing Nami to buy back Cocoyashi while he made sure the village was safe. But once Arlong tried to use a Loophole Abuse to keep Nami in his employ. That was line crossing, so much so that he rallies the entire village for an assault on Arlong Park all for Nami's sake.
  • Scars Are Forever


File:Tvtropes11 8688.jpg

 Voiced by: Noriko Hidaka (JP), Veronica Taylor (EN, 4Kids), Cynthia Cranz (EN, Funi)


Nami and Nojiko's adoptive mother and a former Marine, she was a strong-willed lady that lived at Cocoyashi village with her adoptive daughters. She was killed by Arlong after deciding to use her money to save her daughters instead.

  • Badass Action Mom: Indeed. Especially when she attacked Arlong by shoving a rifle into his mouth.
    • While in the 4Kids edit she used only a shovel, it is still impressive to threaten Arlong.
    • Not to mention: It is implied that she was a Captain during her time as a Marine. Considering that she was only twenty years old when she left the Marines, this would be pretty impressive if it turned out to be true.
  • Bowdlerised: Her fate in the 4Kids version, where she's imprisoned in a dungeon.
    • Apparently 4Kids overlooked the fact that this means she had to have starved to death in the dungeon.
  • Call to Agriculture: From a strong marine soldier to a modest tangerine farmer.
  • Death by Despair: Barely averted in her backstory. She had fought in a terrible battle that destroyed a city, ended up severely injured and was just waiting for her almost sure demise... then she saw little Nojiko carrying baby Nami in her arms and regained the will to live, taking the little girls in.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Shot in the head point blank by Arlong. In the anime, this is toned down by having her shot in the chest.
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: One of the many good characters seen with a cigarette.
  • Go Out with a Smile
  • Hot Mom: Technically "Hot Adoptive Mom", but still.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: "Girl Power". And cool too.
  • Mama Bear: Towards Nami and Nojiko.
  • Posthumous Character
  • Tsundere: A Type A through and through- Now we know where Nami got it.

Dragon "The Revolutionary"

File:Dragon tv tropes.png

 Voiced by: Hidekatsu Shibata (JP), Dan Green (EN, 4Kids), Bryan Massey (EN, Funi)


"Dragon The Revolutionary" is the son of Monkey D. Garp and the father of Monkey D. Luffy. A very mysterious man, very few know about his relation to them due to him being leader of the Revolutionaries -- who directly oppose the World Government -- and being the world's most wanted man. The World Government fears his ideas will spread chaos in the world, and he has apparently already spread them through many nations... mostly through war. His comrade, former ruler of Kamabakka Kingdom Emporio Ivankov, noted that he had the habit of always facing in the same direction when stepping out for air in his base. This could indicate he would occasionally feel homesick.

  • Anime Hair: He's like Raditz.
  • Badass
  • Disappeared Dad: Luffy didn't even know he had a father.
  • Dramatic Wind: Seems to be his motif, and possibly his actual power, though the story hasn't been very clear on that yet.
  • Generation Xerox: Subverted. Luffy looks and acts mostly like the previous Pirate King, however causing big events apparently is inherited.
    • More like played straight if going by Ivankov's comments. The insane willpower, boundless determination, and likely his inhuman strength that Luffy is known for all come from Dragon.
      • It seems to be more of a Zig Zag. Dragon generally acts much colder and more seriously than Luffy, his ever present smile seems more like a satisfied smirk than his son's goofy grin.
  • La Résistance: The leader of one. As such he is the world's most wanted man. His son, Luffy is shaping up to meet his standards as of recent events.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: The father of Monkey D. Luffy.
  • Mysterious Parent: Oh, so mysterious. Such much that it's a shock both to fans and the main cast that Luffy, yes THAT Luffy, is his son!
  • Parental Abandonment: Dragon's son Luffy wasn't even aware he had a dad. Although on Dragon's part, being a revolutionary dedicated to the overthrow of the World Government does have drawbacks, like not being able to see or associate yourself with your family, for example. Especially if you're the world's most wanted man. And to be fair, Iva noted that he from his base would always stare towards the direction of East Blue, which would imply he's homesick. Iva also theorizes the news of Ace's execution would not only bring Whitebeard's attention, but Dragon as well, though he turns out to be mistaken on Dragon's relation to Ace.
  • Slasher Smile: Sports one in almost all his appearances.
  • Tattooed Crook
  • The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized: The success of his ideas being spread around the world? Mostly owed to good-old-fashioned warfare.

  • Older Than They Look: She's actually 139 years old.
  • Running Gag: She often asks around 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.
  • 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).

Those who don't take the pub name very seriously are dealt with accordingly.

Known as Sonia and Mari for short, they're Boa Hancock's little sisters, though "little" might not be the right word. They were slaves of the World Nobles and were released by Fisher Tiger, since then they have been living a lie about why their backs cannot be shown, claiming that they have Gorgon eyes on their backs and anyone who sees it turns to stone, when in actuality they have 'The hoof of the Tenryubito' on their backs, marking them as property of the World Nobles. They were both force fed two different models of Snake-Snake Fruit (Hebi Hebi no Mi), Sonia the Anaconda model and Mari the King Cobra model.

 "Welcome to my Impel Down. Excuse me, I was being too ambitious. I'm still the Vice-Warden, Hannyabal"

Voiced by: Tetsuo Goto (JP)


Easily one of the greatest examples of The Starscream in manga and anime, Hannyabal is the overly ambitious vice-warden of Impel Down. He appears to be a tall man with a pot-belly and a massive chin, wearing a pharoah's headress. His continuous Freudian Slips about his desire to become Warden and silly antics often gain the ire of Magellan, who either Dope Slaps him, or outright poisons him in anger. Despite his finding him irritating and too ambitious, Magellan considers Hannyabal as his only worthy successor to Chief Warden of Impel Down.

As of the timeskip, he achieved his dream as he is now the Warden of Impel Down with former Jail Head, Domino, as his number two.

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: You think he got this job by kissing ass instead of kicking it? You think just cause he doesn't have a Devil Fruit he won't own you? Even if he gives you a chance to escape? Dead wrong.
  • Badass Normal: Just because he doesn't have a Devil Fruit power, doesn't mean he can't kick ass. He'd just rather not.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Hard to believe but true. Guess that's why he's the Vice-Chief.
  • Determinator: Arguably rivaling Luffy himself. Luffy beats him to a bloody pulp and is in every way the better fighter, but the man just will not go down. Blackbeard has to do a sneak attack to put an end to it.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Apparently something of a weakness of his. It's not just that he gets tricked by Mr. 2 disguised as Nami, it's that a flashback to his first day on the job has pretty much the exact same thing happening to him at the hands of a Vamp.
  • Double Weapon: His Naginata Kessui (bloodsucker), which looks more like two katana merged to the hilts.
  • Flaming Sword: Actually a naginata named Kessui (Blood Sucker), but close enough. Doesn't help much, but it was still pretty badass.
  • Foreshadowing: Long before he served any purpose but Butt Monkey Comic Relief, some of the guards commented on his ability to walk through the superheated and supercooled floors of Impel Down with no ill effects. Wow.
  • Gonk
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice
  • Large and In Charge: Not in charge of Impel Down yet, but with time, Hannyabal, with time...
  • Laughably Evil: Nearly every time you see this guy, he's acting or saying something that's funny. This abruptly stopped when he faced off against Luffy.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: Throughout the Impel Down arc, he was basically doing nothing so Magellan would be removed as Warden. When it became clear that Luffy might actually succeed, he put his foot down and held the line.
  • Not So Harmless: As Buggy and Mr. 3 found out the hard way.
  • Nice Hat: Actually a nemes.
    • Even better when it's revealed that he had an even nicer version of it special ordered and on standby for when he eventually became Warden. Unfortunately, he has to break it out prematurely when Mr. 2 steals his regular one.
  • Number Two: To Magellan.
    • Not anymore, now that he's the warden.
  • Obviously Evil: Subverted. He certainly looks evil, and is willing to sell out his superior for a promotion, but his motivation is to protect the innocent.
  • Punny Name: Hannyabal is a combination of both Hannya, the death mask his face resembles, and Hannibal.
  • The Starscream: Openly declares his ambition to become chief, often in earshot of Magellan. Despite this, Magellan considers him to be a worthy successor.
  • Theme Music Power-Up: Parodied. When Hannyabal uses his flaming naginata technique, he has guards in the background playing drums and singing a song to cheer him on.
  • Took a Level In Badass: After the timeskip, he actually DOES become the new warden of Impel Down.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Never wears a shirt. Never. This is lampshaded by the guards when Mr. 2 posed as him, that even in the extreme temperatures of Level 4 and 5, Hannyabal would never wear anything but his pants to show how Badass he is. Unfortunately, it also doubles as Fan Disservice.
  • What Do You Mean Its Not Symbolic: His design looks like a mix between the Egyptian pharoahs and popular imagery of devils.
  • You Shall Not Pass: When push comes to shove, he will not let criminals escape from Impel Down. You need to get past him to do it, and he will not move.


File:Rouge 3495.png

 Voiced by: Yuko Minaguchi (JP)


A mysterious young woman only seen in flashbacks. This is because she was Gol D. Roger's girlfriend/lover, as well as the mother of his child... Ace. Whom she also died for, holding him in her womb for twenty months to make sure the World Government wouldn't get at him. She ultimately passed away -- but not before entrusting Vice-Admiral Garp with the task of taking care of her child, which he did by taking him in as his adoptive grandson. Her full name is Portgas D. Rouge, and she is so far the only known female carrier of the D initial.

"Great Whirlpool Spider" Squard

File:Tvtropes19 5159.jpg

 Voiced by: Seiji Sasaki (JP)


One of the pirate captains allied with Whitebeard, he comes to Marineford with his crew to save Ace. However after he finds out that Ace is the son of Gold Roger, the man who massacred his old crew and after some manipulation from Akainu he turns on Whitebeard and stabs him, calling him out on selling his allies. Whitebeard, however, proves him wrong and forgives him. After the war, his whereabouts are unknown.

  • The Atoner: After Whitebeard forgave him, he becomes this.
  • BFS: One of his weapons is a gargantuan katana, possibly a Zanmato.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Shouts at Whitebeard after Akainu tricked him into believing that the Old Man sold them all.
  • Did You Just Stab Whitebeard?: Yes, he did.
  • Dual-Wielding: A standard katana and a oversized one. The latter is rarely used.
  • Face of a Thug: He looks quite bad, but is more like a Boisterous Bruiser.
  • Informed Ability: Despite being one of the New World Captains, he's not that impressive. Also the reasons behind his nickname are unknown...
  • The Lancer: Whitebeard seems to consider Squard this, since he refers to him to coordinate the movements of the allies.
  • Odd Friendship: With Ace, ironic, considering that his father slaughtered Squard's old crew.
  • Red Baron: "Great Whirlpool Spider" (Oouzugumo). The reasons are unclear, except for a tatoo on his forehead.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Squard, Squad, or Squardo?

 Voiced by: Yasuhiko Tokuyama (JP, episode 490), Kazunari Tanaka (JP, episode 511+)


A former New World pirate captain. After Whitbeard's death, he made the island of Foodvalten his territory. However, his plans were soon foiled when Basil Hawkins defeated him and cut off his legs.

Curly Dadan

File:CurlyDadan 1231.jpg

 Voiced by: Noriko Uemura (JP)


Luffy and Ace's caretaker who watched over them when they were kids at the "request" of Garp (i.e: forced into it). She and her gang are mountain bandits of Luffy's home island and are thus criminals. Though Garp is willing to overlook their crimes as long as they do what he asks of them.


File:Sabo anime 2483.jpg

 Voiced by: Junko Takeuchi (JP)


Luffy and Ace's childhood friend, actually the son of a noble family who ran away from them. He had been Ace's partner before Luffy stumbled upon them, and after saving Luffy from the Bluejam Pirates, he decides to live with Dadan and the other mountain bandits alongside Luffy and Ace. After revealing his status as a noble to Luffy and Ace, they decide to declare themselves brothers. He is eventually taken back by his father and discovers the plan to burn down Trash Mountain. Disgusted by the Nobles, he decides to escape, doing so by stealing a fishing boat and hoisting up his own Pirate Flag. However, his ship is blown up by the visiting World Noble, for showing a pirate flag and cutting in front of his ship. He is the reason for Ace's crossed-out "S" tattoo and hat.

Commander-in-Chief Kong

File:Kong 2649.png

  Voiced by: Unsho Ishizuka (JP)


Twenty years ago, at the dawn of the Golden Age of Piracy, Kong was the Fleet Admiral. He's since been promoted. Now the second-most powerful person in the World Government, Kong's authority extends to not just the Marines but the Warlords, espionage agents, Cipher Pols, and Impel Down and Enies Lobby staff as well.

  • Bigger Bad: Apparently not exactly a "bad" guy, but whenever the Straw Hats face a member of the Government's military, their orders come from him.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: First seen in silhouette in "Chapter 0," and his existence was hinted at as early as the "Yellow" databook.
  • Heroic Build: One of the bulkier characters seen so far.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: Possibly the weirdest yet!
  • Maniac Monkeys: Well, he's at least named for the most famous ape in all fiction, and it's a popular wild mass guess that his powerset will have something to do with primates.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Seems like a nice enough guy, accepting the wishes of Garp and Sengoku when they resign with only a small amount of protest.


File:Surume 3076.jpg

  Voiced by: N/A


Also known as the Kraken, a gigantic octopus that resides deep beneath the ocean. He works for the New Fishman Pirates due to his family being threatened by Hody.

Madame Sharley

File:461px-Madam Shirley 3092.jpg

 Voiced by: Romi Park


A beautiful, large Shortfin Mako Mermaid who runs the Mermaid Café in Fishman Island. She's also a well known seeress, and foretold great events like the coming of the Great Age of Piracy and Whitebeard's death. She recently freaked out when she predicted Ryugu Island destruction at the hands of a person wearing a "strawhat", which may indicate Luffy or Decken.

Oh yeah and she's Arlong's sister.

King Neptune

File:Neptune manga 2237.jpg

 Voiced by: Minoru Inaba (JP)


The King of the Ryuugu Kingdom in Fishman Island.

Fisher Tiger "The Adventurer"

File:Fisher Tiger anime 8214.jpg

 Voiced by: Kouji Ishii (JP)


A legendary Fishman and leader of the Sunny Pirates, who was known for climbing the Red Line, wreaking havoc on Mariejois and freeing thousands of slaves, both human and fishmen. He later took the Fishmen with him and formed the Sunny Pirates, a crew composed of former slaves and new fishmen alike. Along with Queen Otohime he fought for stopping the racism between Fishmen and humans with his own "methods", but bled to death because he refused a transfusion of human blood. He was also revealed to be a Tai Snapper (a.k.a. Red Sea Brem) fishman.

  • Badass: How else would you call a man able to climb a kilometric, smooth wall for days and still have enough strength back to raze a whole citadel all by himself!?
  • Death by Irony: A blood transfusion from a human could have saved him... but it was denied to him.
    • Nope, that's the story his crew made up to keep his heroic image. He still qualifies though since, in truth, he hated humans too much to accept one. Much to his own disgust of himself.
  • The Fettered: Unlike his subordinate Arlong, he's careful not to allow his anger at humans to overcome him because he knows it would damage his cause.
  • Irrational Hatred: As noted in Knight Templar below.
  • Knight Templar: Unlike Queen Otohime, he believed that humans and fishmen cannot live together.
    • On his deathbed he admitted that he knew good people do exist and that they are not so different from fishmen but he never could overcome his irrational hatred.
  • Large and In Charge: He's even bigger than Arlong and Jinbei.
  • Morality Chain: Was this to some members of the Sun pirates, especially Arlong.
  • Morality Pet: Koala was this to him.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His policy and status resembles those of Malcolm X compared to Otohime's Martin Luther King, Jr. similarity. Furthermore, the situation that led to his demise is similar to the one of Charles R. Drew. albeit that being a urban legend.
  • Noble Demon: He hated humans, but during his rampage in Mariejois he still freed all the slaves, both humans and fishmen.
    • He also refused to kill the humans that come after him, since he realizes that it would only prolong the cycle of hatred.
  • One-Man Army: He razed Mariejois all by himself.
  • Posthumous Character
  • Punny Name: The Sea Brem is called "Tai" in Japanese
  • Sword and Gun: In a flashback, he was shown holding a cutlass and a pistol (along with two other swords and a bazooka) during his assault on Mariejois.
  • Tiger Versus Dragon: He's the "Tiger" who opposed to the "Celestial Dragons".
    • This trope could arguably used to describe the opposing views of Otohime and himself on fishman/merfolk-human relations, with Otohime being the "Dragon".



 Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino (JP)


A little slave girl who was liberated by Fisher Tiger and taken home by the Sun Pirates.

  • Happiness in Slavery: Due to being a slave her whole life, she didn't know how to live any other way.
    • That happiness was only faked though, in order to hide her fear and sadness (See Stepford Smiler below).
  • Morality Chain: To Macro and Arlong. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to actually make either of them good.
    • It did sorta work with Tiger though. Her innocence was enough to convince him that there may hope for positive relations between fishmen and humans. A belief he finally announced on his deathbed.
  • Nice Girl
  • Perpetual Smiler: See below to find out why.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: She went from looking like this, to looking like this during her time with the Sun Pirates.
  • Stepford Smiler: Because she was a slave, she was scared of being killed by the World Nobles so she kept on a happy face to keep them from doing so.
  • Tagalong Kid

Queen Otohime

File:Otohime anime 181.jpg

 Voiced by: Michiko Neya (JP)


A goldfish mermaid and the former queen of the Ryuguu Kingdom. Unlike Fisher, she wanted a peaceful co-existence with the humans. She was assassinated by Hody Jones with a human pirate seving as his patsy. Her subjects are still loyal to her and her beliefs however.

  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Subverted. Sure they hurt, and gave the recipient a lesson, but she severely harms herself in the process.
  • Break the Cutie: You can't not feel sorry for her as the people who once supported her cause start giving up and withdrawing their signatures.
  • The Empath
  • Good Parents: She is seen to be very close with all four of her children. Even when she was exhausted from her work and depressed when her people no longer supported her cause, it didn't stop her from putting on a smile for her kids and spending time with them.
  • Go Out with a Smile: She smiled as Fukaboshi promises her that he and his brothers will take care of Shirahoshi and that they will make sure that the signatures from their people will be collected.
  • Hair of Gold
  • Hot Mom: At least we know which side of the family Shirahoshi gets her looks from...
  • In Vino Veritas: When her people, even those who had previously supported her cause, started backing out in the wake of Fisher Tiger's death, she got completely smashed, then got on the radio and viciously called out her subjects for their cowardice while drunk.
  • Ki Attacks: She is the first known Mermaid to be a confirmed Haki user, capable of using Observation Haki or Mantra.
  • The Messiah: Played straight, but somewhat exaggerated. She can make a violent thief forced into a criminal life by poverty to reconsider his choices by pleading with him, then crying profusely as she sympathizes with his pain, of course after she slaps him several times. She was also immensely influential and gave passionate speeches, as she was adored all over Fishman Island.
    • Taken to the absolute extreme when she not only takes a bullet for a freaking Celestial Dragon, but then leaves with him to the Holy Land and successfully negotiates with the other world nobles. Wow.
  • Missing Mom
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The Martin Luther King, Jr. to Fisher's Malcolm X. Considering she was assassinated for her cause just as MLK was also draws parallels.
    • As with MLK, Otohime was also assassinated in broad daylight via sniper gun shot.
    • The New Fishmen Pirates force the island's citizens to step on a Fumi-e, a reference to how Christians in Japan were forced to step on an icon of the Virgin Mary.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Stopped a thief by herself, even though her body is weak.
  • Pettanko: One of the few adult females with a flat chest, and yet really good-looking.
  • Posthumous Character
  • Taking the Bullet: For an assolish Jerkass World Noble to boot. It just made her more popular.
  • Tiger Versus Dragon: If you assume that Otohime is the "dragon" to Fisher Tiger's..."tiger".
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife
  • Weak but Skilled
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: She is, however, a more nuanced type than the usual "Can't we all just get along" idealist. Her drunken rant revealed that part of her motivation to campaign was an anger at the injustice of a world where opportunities for fishmen were forever out of reach for no other reason than because they were fishmen, and she both understood and accepted that some fishmen could never forgive and reconcile with humans, focusing instead on making sure they did not pass their hatred on to the younger generation.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko

"Ancient Weapon" Poseidon

What was originally thought to be an ancient weapon of mass destruction turns out to actually be a mermaid princess from the void century who had the power to control Sea Kings.
