Three-Headed Baskerville (３つ首のバスカビル Mittsu-Kubi no Basukabiru) is the gigantic, three-headed Chief Justice (裁判長 Saibanchō) on the island of Enies Lobby, in the service of the World Government and the Navy. He is Enies Lobby's only known (and probably only) judge (three judges) . He is a walking tribunal, and each of his three heads has a mind of its own: On the left and controllng the left hand is Left Baskerville, on the right and controlling the right hand is Right Baskerville, and in the middle is Center Baskerville, who prefers to call himself such things as "Center Freeway" and "Center Lone Mainline" instead of his actual name. In addition, each head has a distinct personality, and legal opinions to match: for example, Left Baskerville is in favor of punishing the Straw Hat Pirates because they are criminals, while Right Baskerville takes the opposite viewpoint and recommends letting them go. Center Baskerville, as his self-styled nicknames suggest, is a wild card: he consistently offers the "compromise" of execution, which is more extreme than either of the other two heads' viewpoints. This often leads to Left and Right Baskerville yelling at him and banging their heads against his own. Although being originally a judge they can also fight with a sword.
When they are chopped up by an attack from Paulie & Zambai, it revealed that Baskerville is actually three people. Center Baskerville is a man with very large legs but small arms, and Left and Right have very large arms but small legs. Left and Right actually sit on Center's thighs. Right's real name is Bas, Left's real name is Kerville, and Center calls himself Princess.
Eiichirō Oda seems to have drawn from a number of British sources as inspiration for Baskerville. The character's name comes from the famous Sherlock Holmes novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Oda also paid homage to the novel by having Baskerville's elite subordinates direct packs of military canines. Baskerville himself appears to be based substantially on the Three-Headed Knight in the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, which shares a general resemblance in costume and argues with itself in much the same manner as Baskerville does. Combined with the character's speech quirks and stereotypical British faces (particularly that of Right Baskerville), it seems abundantly clear that the idea for Baskerville was inspired by sources from the United Kingdom. Members of the Franky Family also made references to Cerberus, the three-headed dog that guards the entrance of the Underworld in Greek Mythology.
He is voiced by ??? in Japanese media and by ??? in the Funimation English dub.
When Arlong and his crew invade the island, Bellemere tries to fend them off but is quickly subdued. Required by Arlong to pay a fee for survival, Bellemere has only enough money to pay for herself or her two adopted daughters. Choosing to buy her daughters' freedom, she is killed by Arlong in front of Nami and Nojiko. Bellemere is hardly ever seen without a cigarette. She has the word "Mace," on her shirt. Both the word and the cigarette are edited out in the 4Kids dub. Also in the 4Kids version of the anime, she is detained for not paying her fee and is "locked away in a dungeon for the rest of her days". She is voiced by Noriko Hidaka in Japanese media, Veronica Taylor in the 4Kids English dub, and ??? in the Funimation English dub.
She recently met the Straw Hat Pirates when they arrived at the Red Line for the second time. There, she was revealed to be a Kissing gourami-mermaid. After leading the Straw Hats to save Hatchan from a combo of the Macro Pirates and the Flying Fish Riders, she had been assisting them on the Sabaody Archipelago. She was kidnapped and sold to an auction house in Grove 1, where Saint Charlos bought her for 500,000,000 Beli, but was stopped by Luffy and Hatchan. Her slave collar was safely removed by Silvers Rayleigh.
As Kokoro is revealed to be a mermaid, it is possible that Chimney, being her granddaughter, may have latent mermaid abilities of her own. Although Chimney doesn't seem to have any mermaid characteristics, she was able to save Luffy, who is 3 times her size, from drowning off screen while resisting what must have been an overwhelming current from the several whirlpools in the sea in front of the Gate of Justice. She is voiced by Chiwa Saitō in Japanese media and by ??? in the Funimation English dub.
Clover stated that before the World Government was formed, the Grand Line was ruled by an ancient kingdom, but it was wiped out by a group that would one day become the World Government. However, before Clover could reveal the name, he was shot and mortally wounded. The Buster Call was then initiated and Navy ships began to assault Ohara. Clover, along with Olvia and the other scholars, stayed behind to save as many books as they can from the Tree of Knowledge for future generations. Afterwards, he and the scholars all stayed in the tree as it burned down around them, and Ohara was destroyed.
When Monkey D. Luffy and his crew came to Drum Island in search of a doctor to cure Nami of her illness during the mission to get Princess Nefertari Vivi to Arabasta Kingdom, they encountered Dalton and some men who thought they were here to rob the island. When asked about a doctor, the only one who could heal Nami was a witch named Dr. Kureha.
Even after Wapol returned and once again subdued him, the people and even the top 20 doctors continued to help out Dalton. He was later seriously wounded by Wapol because he defended the townsfolk from arrows launched by one of Wapol's bodyguards. And he in turn then, even almost going to extreme measures such as planning to blow up Wapol's castle. Luckily, Luffy defeated Wapol and knocked him off the island, after which the people of Drum elected Dalton as their new king and renamed the island, Sakura Kingdom (inspired from the special chemical created by Hilruk, which turned the snow pink).
He appears later in chapter 440, where he shows Doctor Kureha the new bounties of the Straw Hat Pirates. He doesn't live in the castle, preferring to live in the village.
He has eaten the Devil Fruit known as the Ushi Ushi no Mi, Model: Bison (ウシウシの実 モデル野牛(バイソン) Cow Cow Fruit, Model Bison) which gives him the ability to transform into a bison and into a half human/half bison form that resembles a minotaur. In the English anime the fruit is called the "Ox Ox Fruit" and the animal he turns to is an Ox. He is voiced by Kenichi Ono in Japanese media, Ted Lewis in the 4Kids English dub, and ??? in the Funimation English dub.
They have been fighting for over 100 years, according to Oda when they started they were 58 years old (apparently in human years it would be around 29) and therefore are at least 158 years old by the time Luffy and his crew met them.
After Gaimon shrinks when he gets stuck in the chest, he can no longer scale the cliff. He has to protect his treasures somehow, so he would use his gun and his spooky voice to drive away intruders. Monkey D. Luffy and the whole crew passes the trial and they begin to become friends. However, when Luffy finally gets to the top of the cliff, Gaimon realized that the treasure chests were empty too and he had been protecting a nonexistent "treasure" for 20 years. He was offered to join the crew of the Strawhats but he declined. Then, he considers the animals as his treasures, and vows to protect them. He is voiced by Tōru Ōhira in Japanese media, David Brimmer in the 4Kids English dub, and Jonathan C. Osborne in the Funimation English dub.
His pet bird Pierre has eaten a Devil Fruit known as the Uma Uma no Mi (ウマウマの実, Horse Horse Fruit) which enabled Pierre to turn into a pegasus or a full horse. Gan Fall uses Pierre and his Devil Fruit power to get around Skypiea. He fights with a lance and a Impact Dial in his gauntlet.
Gan Fall mentioned at the end of Skypiea Arc that he had previously met Gold Roger over 20 years ago in the past. He is one of a few characters that has noticed a similarity between Luffy and Roger. He is voiced by Jōji Yanami in Japanese media. Originally Randy Tallman was cast as the voice of Gan Fall for the Funimation dub of the show, but passed away and was recast by John Swasey soonafter. He was incorrectly listed as his voice in the credits of Episode 153.
Genbou (ゲンボウ) is one of the Shandian warriors that fought to take back Upper Yard from Enel, using a cannonball-firing bazooka as weapon. He loses to Yama in the Survival Game, but later recovers as the war ends.
The sheriff and mayor of Cocoyashi Village, which is Nami's home town. He is like a father figure to Nami and Nojiko since they were kids and he knew their adoptive mother, Bellemere, quite well. He also kept the town together after Arlong took over the island, making sure everyone was safe and able to pay their tax. Genzo is covered in scares. And wears a pinwheel on his hat, because he used it to make Nami laugh when she was a baby.
"Gin the Demon Man" (鬼人のギン, Kijin no Gin), known as "Ghin" in the 4kids Dub, is Don Krieg's first mate. He is saved from starvation by Sanji. When Don Krieg's forces come to take over the Baratie, Gin is ordered to kill his savior, but refuses.
Chimney's pet rabbit, who thinks he's a cat. He can be considered a cabbit, a hybrid of cat and rabbit common in anime. He also says strange words. He is normally shown mimicking Chimney, even trying to talk like her. He often speaks with a "gno, gno" sound.
In his early days, Hiruluk was a thief who was diagnosed with a fatal illness. What he believed cured him was the serene vision of a grove of cherry blossom trees. After being cured, he came to believe that there is no disease in the world that cannot be cured. He returned to Drum Island, the island he was born on, to help cure a dire sickness. Hiruluk's main dream was to cure the people of the island of their frozen hearts which had formed because of Wapol's selfishness; in order to do this, Hiruluk spent the last 30 years of his life trying to make cherry blossoms bloom in the snow-covered island. He is voiced by Shigeru Ushiyama in Japanese media, Marc Diraison in the 4Kids English dub, and Mark Stoddard in the Funimation English dub.
Iceburg is the president of the Galley-La company and the mayor or Water 7. He is loved by the people of the city, especially by his workers. Those enjoy his company and often ask for his opinion and input on anything having to do with building ships.
After he and Vivi were found out, he dressed up as Vivi to act as decoy while the Straw Hats helped Vivi get back to Arabasta. But Nico Robin (Miss All Sunday at the time) blew up his ship and he was presumed dead until the end of the Arabasta Arc, where he emerged alive and well in Nanohana (which appears to be what Robin intended).
He finally caught up with the rebellion carrying a witness, Kappa, who saw Mr. 2 Bon Clay remove his disguise as Cobra, the King of Arabasta, proof that the rebellion was started by Baroque Works and not by the faults of the king. He was again seen decoying as Vivi, during a speech to the people of Arabasta, so she could sneak away secretly to say goodbye to the Straw-Hats. Later in the Rainbow Mist Arc, he is seen placing Rainbow Mist Volume X on a shelf in Arabasta. He seems to have more than a necessary liking for wearing women's clothing, and has dressed as Vivi off his own bat more than once. This could just be because of his loyalty to Vivi.
He is married to Terracotta. Like many One Piece characters, Igaram has a unique speech pattern. When clearing his throat, he says "Mah, Mah, Maah!" like an opera singer. In the 4kids dub, it is changed to "ahem, ahem, ahem." However in the English Manga, it remains "Mah, Mah, Maah!" He is voiced by Keiichi Sonobe in Japanese media, David Wills in the 4Kids English dub, and ??? in the Funimation English dub.
Jerry (ジェリー, Jerī) is the leader of CP6 and an extremely tall man, so much in fact, that he must bend himself twice to fit into the Sea Train. He comes from Karate Island in South Blue and claims to be a boxing champion.
Kaidou is one of the Yonkou, who once fought on equal levels with Gecko Moria. He has yet to make a physical appearance.
Kamakiri (カマキリ) is one of the Shandian warriors fighting to take Upper Yard from Enel. He uses a spear and a Burn Blade as a weapons.
Kappa is a young Arabasta child who wanted to join the Rebellion against the king; however, Koza refused to let him join because he was so young. Kappa later fell upon the secret of Baroque Works and learned that the king was framed. Mr.1 and Miss Doublefinger attacked him to keep him quiet. Igaram later finds him, and Kappa soon tells all of Arabasta about what was really going on. It was his eyewitness that officially ended the war.
Karoo (カルー Karū), also spelled "Carue," is Vivi's pet spot-billed duck, a fast-footed riding bird. He has been by her side since their childhoods, and he is Vivi's truest friend, even sleeping in her bedroom alongside her. His name comes from the Japanese word "karugamo," which means "spot-billed duck".
Kaya (カヤ) is a rich girl who got an inheritance after her parents died. Kaya becomes sickly, and her caretaker Klahadore often tends to her.
Kokoro was once the "lovely" secretary of Tom, and a matronly figure to his two apprentices, Iceburg and Franky. It was she who revealed to the Straw Hat Pirates, Franky Family, and Galley-La Company foremen the existence of a prototype Sea Train, and she was also responsible for driving the prototype, called "Rocketman," as it sped on its way towards Enies Lobby. Her facial features make it look as if she is perpetually smiling regardless of her actual emotions. Her body shape, along with her strange smile, makes her look like a frog. She is, in fact, an icefish mermaid, though resembles more of a dugong in terms of appearance and shape. The fact that she is a mermaid and how she looks upsets Sanji greatly and to a certain extent even Nami, although she is not still not used to how mermaids should look. It has been hinted that she knows a great deal about Gold Roger and may have even known him personally.
Like some of the other characters of One Piece, Kokoro has a unique laugh, she starts it with a "Nga" (i.e. Nga ga ga ga ga)
She is voiced by Ako Mayama in Japanese media and by ??? in the Funimation English dub.
After he joined the dojo, Zoro fought Kuina regularly, but found that in 2,001 fights he could never beat her. Despite this, Kuina, who'd been told by her father that she could not achieve her dream of becoming the world's best swordsman since she was female and would mature into the physically-weaker gender, soon became discouraged in her future as a swordfighter. After tearfully telling Zoro about her future's despondent outlook, he got angry, yelling that she wasn't weak, and training so hard to beat someone who would grow weaker than him made him look bad. He swore that the day he beat her, it would be because he trained hard, not because she grew weaker.
This makes Kuina feel better and she decides to continue chasing her dreams. Inspired, the two make a vow: that both would grow stronger, and one of them would eventually become the world's best swordmaster. However, the next day, Kuina fell down the stairs while trying to get a sharpening block (no doubt to resharpen her katana after her and Zoro's duel) and died at the tender age of 14 (in the defunct 4Kids dub, she was injured by the friends of a man she defeated, and could never fight again). Zoro asked her father for the honor of taking the Wadō Ichimonji with him, and with this Zoro promised to fulfil their shared dream of becoming the greatest swordsman to fruition in order to honor Kuina.
In the anime, her father has a conversation with Zoro after her death/injury in which he states that Kuina's rivalry with Zoro had motivated her to train harder than ever. Because of this, Kuina had begun breaking down the physical barriers that prevented a swordswoman from becoming the best. In this conversation, her father expresses regret at telling his daughter she couldn't be number one, implying that she would have become an incredible fighter had she not died.
The Naval officer Tashigi bears a strong resemblance to Kuina (in appearance, personality, and sword style), to the point where it makes Zoro extremely uncomfortable around her. Tashigi is also the exact age that Kuina would be, if alive. However, it is unknown if they have any greater connection than that. She is voiced by Machiko Toyoshima in Japanese media, Priscilla Everett in the 4Kids English dub, and Monica Rial in the Funimation English dub.
She considers herself a beautiful virgin flower, dresses in a style more suited to women one-sixth her age, and cannot stand being called "old" or a "hag" (which usually ends up in her punching or kicking the offender across the room). Kureha seems to have a drinking habit, judging by the bottle of umeshu (bug juice in the 4Kids dub) she always keeps close at hand, though she may consider this part of the regimen that keeps up her (relative) youth. She also has a habit of "mishearing" people to be asking the secret to her youth. She seems to be somewhat anxious to tell it, though she never has a chance. People seem to be afraid to ask it. According to Oda, Kureha still has many years ahead of her.
Dr. Kureha had an odd relationship with Dr. Hiruluk, seeming to enjoy the camaraderie of a fellow "doctor", but dismissing most of his ideas as those of a quack. When she realized that Hiruluk was dying, she agreed (reluctantly) to his last request: to train Tony Tony Chopper in medicine. During the time since Hiruluk's death, she trained Chopper in everything she knew, and was fairly impressed by the young reindeer's skill (though she rarely, if ever, let on to this fact). Knowing that Chopper would do well to gain real-world experience, Kureha helped make up his mind (by forbidding him from it) to leave the island with the Straw Hat Pirates. Standing on the ramparts of Drum Castle, she gave her wayward student a tearful send-off of gigantic proportions, setting off the "cure" that Dr. Hiruluk envisioned for the island: pink "cherry blossom" snowflakes falling from the sky to warm the island's frosted heart.
She appears again in chapter 440, wherein she saw Chopper's wanted poster (50 beli), and hoped the number was a mistake. She doesn't seem to care that Dalton is now the king, and addresses him in her normal rude way.
She is played by Masako Nozawa in the original Japanese version, and by Maddie Blaustein in the 4Kids dub, who, incidentally, also played a character named Dr. K in another one of 4Kids' series, Cubix: Robots for Everyone. As a reference to this, Chopper's nickname for Kureha is "Dr. K" in the English dub, as opposed to the Japanese counterpart's nickname, "Doctorine". She is voiced by Masako Nozawa in Japanese media, Maddie Blaustein in the 4Kids English dub, and ??? in the Funimation English dub.
Crocus revealed to the Straw Hat Pirates that Laboon's friends effectively abandoned him by fleeing the Grand Line through the Calm Belt. (although this may not be true as Brook described his crew as being slaughtered in the Florian Triangle) The pirates were recently revealed to be the crew of Brook the skeleton, leaving him as Laboon's only crewmate left. The old doctor has cared for Laboon ever since his friends left him. Although Laboon knows the truth about his friends, he refuses to admit to himself that they are gone. Laboon has many scars on his head from slamming into Reverse Mountain, for he believes he can destroy the mountain and return to West Blue.
Monkey D. Luffy, in an effort to give Laboon a renewed sense of hope, picks a fight with the whale by jamming the Going Merry's mast into his head. After the battle (which Luffy calls a draw), Luffy promises to Laboon that he will return to see him, under the guise of wanting a rematch. As a sign of this, Luffy paints the Strawhat Jolly Roger on Laboon's head, commenting that the insignia will wear away if Laboon hits Reverse Mountain further. The Straw hats depart, leaving behind two important friends.
Recently, the only known survivor of the pirates that had abandoned him fifty years ago has been revealed to be Brook, an undead skeleton the Straw Hats met shortly before they arrived on Thriller Bark. He has currently reclaimed his shadow, so that he can exit the Florian Triangle, and return to Laboon.
Originally, in the Japanese manga and anime, the appearance of Laboon is also the introduction of Mr. 9 and Miss Wednesday, two Frontier Agents of Baroque Works who are responsible for bringing the Straw Hat Pirates to Whisky Peak (Misty Peak in the English dub). However, this brief encounter was deemed to be too controversial and violent by 4Kids for American audiences, so Laboon was passed off as an iceberg that was effectively destroyed by Monkey D. Luffy. (In the July 2006 English issue of Shonen Jump, there is a page featuring upcoming One Piece cards; in this, he is called "Raboon," but his name remains "Laboon," in the manga itself.)
This missing "arc" was also originally how Nami came to have a Log Pose, though this was also written around in the English anime, claiming that Usopp's father had given him the Pose and that Zeff told Sanji about how the Grand Line works. On top of this, the mention of the island "Raftel" was said by Sanji, instead of Crocus. Lastly, as mentioned before, one of the pirates that abandoned Laboon is Brook, who is an important character in the Thriller Bark arc and is the sole reason for him to remain alive. Due to Funimation gaining the licensing rights to One Piece, the Laboon arc may be shown on DVD, sometime next year.
Laki (ラキ) is one of the Shandian warriors that fought to take back Upper Yard from Enel. She uses a gun as a weapon.
large-set female pirate, Lola is the captain of the Rolling Pirates. She is infamous for having attempted to propose marriage over four-thousand times to any male she comes across, only to be turned down time and again.
Three years prior to the start of the story, Lola and her crew were captured by the Moria Pirates on the island/ship of Thriller Bark and forced to have their shadows put inside the zombie servants of Shichibukai member Gecko Moria. (Lola's went inside the body of a warthog female with the same name and similar proposition problems) Without her shadow, Lola and her crew were forced to hide in Thriller Bark's forest where they foraged any released shadows, using them on themselves to survive in the daylight. However, Lola had a master plan: using Moria's shadows to power up a person who would assist them in freeing them from their situation. This turned out to be Monkey D. Luffy, who Lola implanted with one-hundred shadows to allow him to fight back against Moria and his ultimate zombie Oz.
After Oz's defeat, Lola and her crew appeared to finally be free from their curse. However, the revival of Moria combined with the rising sun presented a problem of being caught off guard. Choosing to stand for her fate, Lola stands in the midst of the rising sun, slowly burning up as she chose not to be scared any more of the threat of living without her shadow. Yet with the ultimate defeat of Moria by the Straw Hat pirates, Lola and all her crew finally regained their shadows in the end. Before the strawhats leave she gives Nami a Biblicard that will bring them to her mother. Nami seems to have a connection with Lola, due to the friendship she shared with Lola's zombie, as she was willing to share her treasure with her (Nami is generally stingy when it comes to her treasure).
Makino is the bartender from the hometown of Monkey D. Luffy, Fuschia Village She's a very kind person, and was a close friend of Shanks, his crew, and Luffy. Makino appeared to be a very prominent figure in Fusha Village. She is sometimes shown with her mayor. She seems to have been a mother/big sister figure to Luffy when he was a boy. When Higuma was hurting Luffy, Makino ran to get the mayor. When the Shanks pirates left the town for the final time Makino was with Luffy when he watched them leave.
She typically appears when the village discuss Luffy's bounty going up, commenting that he looked happy the first time and later that Luffy had made some good friends when all of them got bounties. Discussing Luffy's new bounty after the Enies Lobby arc in chapter 440, her looks are changed from the earliest chapters. This may have to do with the general change in Oda's drawing style from smooth, angular and compact to loose, more dynamic and detailed.
Known as the "Salvage King", Masira is the head of a simian salvage operation near Jaya Island. He is also the brother to Shōjō and a surrogate son of Montblanc Cricket. The bounty on his head is 23 million beli high.
The mayor from Luffy's town. He was the first person to stick up for Luffy during his tussle with Higuma the Bear. He complained about Luffy's dream of becoming a pirate, saying that it would bring shame to the village; however, he later questioned whether it might be Luffy's "destiny". Though he seems to be disappointed in Luffy's choice to become a pirate he shows he stills cares for the boy.
The One Piece BLUE databook reveals that his real name is Woop Slap and that he knows when and how Luffy was born and Luffy's origins. He is familiar with Garp and his family (including Dragon). In chapter 440, he reads about Luffy's bounty and mutters to himself whether Dadan knows.
Captain of the White Berets (a police force in Skypeia), he tried to arrest the Straw Hat Pirates when they first arrived in Skypeia. He appears to be very devoted to Enel, until it is revealed that Enel planned to destroy Skypeia with his Devil Fruit powers, McKinley then reveals that he only did everything Enel commanded in order to ensure the safety of the citizens of Sky Island. McKinley, along with the rest of the White Berets, then left Enel's side and chose to help Conis evacuate the Skypeian people.
The captain and only named member of the Big Helmet Pirates. He was seen in a shipyard refusing to pay the Galley-La for repairing his ship. He started to cause trouble only to find himself and his crew knocked down by the Galley-La workers. He has a bounty of 36,000,000 beli. He appears later in the fillers working for the debt collectors (apparently without a ship he can't leave Water 7 anymore) but he is easily defeated by Zoro. Like all his crew members he is a swordsman.
Monkey D. Dragon is the father of Monkey D. Luffy and is also the son of Vice-Admiral Monkey D. Garp. Known as the Revolutionary Dragon, he is the world's most wanted criminal, and another one of the several characters given the middle initial "D". He has had his revolutionary ideas spread throughout the world and has taken several nations. He is also the only member of the D. family to look serious, partly due to his strange facial mark. Despite being an enemy to the World Government, he still keeps contact with his father.
Before the start of the series, Dragon left Luffy in Garp's care. Dragon first appears after a lightning bolt suddenly destroys the gallows where Luffy was to be executed by Buggy the Clown and then saves Luffy from being captured by Captain Smoker. When he saved Luffy from Smoker, a mighty gust of eerie wind swept through Loguetown. It is undetermined whether or not he was the cause behind the gust of wind or the lightning; however, the story leads to believe there is more to him than it seems. Recently, he has taken over an island in the South Blue and is about to head to the North Blue when he commented, after noticing Luffy's newest bounty, given to him after invading Enies Lobby, that father and son will meet sometime soon.
Montblanc Cricket (モンブラン・クリケット, Monburan Kuriketto) (known as Monbran Cricket in the FUNimation English dub, Mombran Cricket in 4Kids dub) is an inhabitant of Jaya Island, living in a small home behind the façade of a castle. Due to the story about his ancestor Montblanc Norland, he is looked down upon and has become bitter to the point that he hates his ancestor. To that end, he aims to prove that the city of gold existed by diving into the ocean day in, day out, searching for any proof of it. He is later joined by Masira and Shōjō, two fans of the fairy tale who would become his surrogate sons.
In the present day of the series, Montblanc Norland (モンブラン・ノーランド, Monburan Nōrando) is falsely regarded in a North Blue fairy tale as a trickster and a liar who made up a story of a gold city on Jaya Island. In actually, he was an explorer and botanist. He led his king to Jaya, attempting to show him that city of gold. But when it wasn't there anymore, he was sentenced to death for deceiving his king. He stood by his story even up till his execution.
Duval's pet bison. He is a gigantic animal with enough strength to easily destroy Duval's hut. Duval uses him both for a battle mount and for transportation. Morobaro becomes unconscious when Luffy faced him eye to eye, in a scene that foreshadows Luffy gaining the same power of 'presence' also displayed by Shanks and Rayleigh. Motobaro is able to swim with the aid of a scuba mask, which allows Duval to use him for travel on water; however, due to his size, he is incredibly slow in water.
Mozu (モズ, Mozu) and Kiwi (キウィ, Kiwi), also known as the "Square Sisters" (スクエアシスターズ, Sukuea Shisutāzu) due to their square-like hairstyle. During one of Franky's Flashbacks, the girls were shown as lush party girls before meeting Franky for the first time. Instead of taking them to another pub, he invited them both to join him for a nice cola.
Nefertari Cobra (Nebra in the 4Kids version and romanized as Nefeltari in the Egnlish-language manga versions) is the king of Arabasta and father of Nefertari Vivi. He is wise and fair, and cares deeply for his kingdom and people, even though they are rebelling against him. He is first seen during Dalton's flashback of the World Government meeting held in Arabasta.
Nico Olvia (ニコ・オルビア Niko Orubia) is the mother of Nico Robin. She is an archaeologist from the island of Ohara, who works with a team of scholars in the island's library in the outlawed study of Poneglyphs.
Nojiko is the adoptive older sister of Nami (the two are not biologically related, but after losing their parents in the war, they were raised together by Bellemere). She plays a major part in the Arlong arc as she reveals Nami's past to the Straw Hats and helps rescue Luffy with the help of Genzo after Luffy is thrown into the ocean by Arlong with his feet stuck in a block of cement. Her right arm is covered in tattoos, which she got to help Nami not to feel ashamed of her tattoo of Arlong's pirate logo. After trying to stop Nami from attacking Captain Nezumi, a Naval officer who tries to take the money Nami raised for her deal with Arlong, Nojiko was shot by him in the back. However, she survived. In the manga, she gave her bracelet to Nami. She appears later again, and is glad that Nami looks happy in her wanted poster.
Norla is a giant snake that lives with the Shandians in Jaya before and after it got knocked into the sky by the Knock Up Stream. At first she was nothing more than a little normal sized snake and named after Montblanc Norland in honor of the explorer. After the Knock Up Stream incident and many years go by, Norla had grown to her gigantic size. The people of Skypeia call her the "King of the Sky," or "Master of the Sky".
Conis's father and a brilliant inventor from Skypiea who fixes the waver Nami rides. Pagaya was thought dead as Enel attacked him while he was helping an injured member of the Royal Guard, who had just revealed Enel's plans to destroy Skypeia. But he resurfaces later, alive and well. He helps the Straw Hat Pirates despite the fact that they were labeled as criminals for not paying their toll fee. He has a habit of apologizing for everything; even things that he isn't even responsible for, or things that warrant no apology whatsoever (introducing himself, accepting a drink, for being alive after being presumed dead, etc.).
Pandaman is a joke character created by the author, Eiichirō Oda, whose appearance is that of a muscle bound figure with a panda face for a head (whether this is a mask or his real face remains to be seen). He makes numerous background appearances throughout the series for the viewer to try and spot. .
Pandaman was originally created for the book 77 Mysteries of Kinnikuman. He originated from Tibet and age is unknown. He is 200 cm (6'6") tall, weighs 122kg (270 lbs), and has a Super Power Rating of 3,300,000. His mortal blow techniques: Bamboo Leaf Panda Drop and Giant Panda Deathlock. His Explanation: Abandoned in a bamboo thicket as an infant, Panda Man was raised by Giant Pandas. He is an Akuma Chōjin who resolved to become strong because when he told people he had seen Kaguya-Hime, they did not believe him and picked on him. (Kaguyahime was a princess who was found inside a bamboo stump, according to Japanese legends.)
According to Oda, Pandaman is a rich guy living on a certain island. He is often seen in the same panel as one of the Tomato Gang, a debt collector on the lookout for Pandaman, trying to collect the money Pandaman owes (which is why Pandaman is often seen running away on appearances).
Pandaman's bounty is revealed to be 3,333,000 beli during the Anime Filler Arc Ice Hunter on Episode 326, as Kanpaccino's hand blocks the entire number. This is the same amount as his Super Power Rating.
