Despite the massive amount of characters, the design in One Piece is still extremely flexible and creative. From shady Shichibukai to beautiful mermaids, One Piece has no shortage of designs that will leave you in awe, especially when they appear almost continuously.
However, the shapes “not pleasing to the eye” are not uncommon. Whether intended or not, the fact that they have a colorful, flashy design makes the audience sometimes lose sympathy with One Piece.
In this article by Vietotaku, learning the past behind those characters and their personalities will help the audience know if such a design is intentional, or simply a personal fashion.
Lola is the 23rd daughter of Big Mom, her appearance is almost not suitable for the majority of the audience. Possessing a large nose and unusually large lips, only Lola’s eyes are too small compared to other parts of her face.
However, Lola’s ugly appearance was purposefully designed by the author Oda. In One Piece, she proposed to more than four thousand different men but were rejected, so no one has yet agreed to marry Lola.
Through the image of Lola, we understand that she is not the type of dream partner that guys look for. Her fashion sense is also quite bad when combining tomato red with pale yellow, creating a great contrast.
Up to now, Lola has been rejected a total of 4452 times despite being a very kind person. Before meeting the Straw Hats, she was rejected 4443 times. Of course, the male members of the Straw Hat Pirates were all proposed by her, including Chopper and Brook. In which, Frank and Zoro are honored to have twice.
However, Lola herself also rejected the political marriage that Big Mom arranged with the giants, namely Prince Loki on the Elbaf side. She decided to run away from home and was threatened by Big Mom with execution if she dared to return to Cake Island.
Morley was a giant and now commanded the western forces of the revolution. The One Piece character data card (Vivre Card) indicates that Morley is actually transgender.
She ate the Oshi Oshi no Mi and has the ability to push any object, including the ground. Thereby causing the ground to shake or turn it into something that can bend, move like a wave.
Morley’s appearance was a bit silly considering his position in the ranks of the revolutionary army. Unlike Dragon or any of the other members, she wears a rather small dress and exposes her body almost completely.
The tiny goggles on Morley’s head are only cosmetic and completely ineffective in combat. This could not inspire the people in the places where the revolutionaries were about to liberate.
While in Sabaody Archipelago, Luffy was at the Slave Auction House and saw a shocking scene unfold before his eyes. Luffy’s friend Hatchan was shot by the Heavenly Dragon Human Charloss, so he decided to punch him unconscious.
The design of Charloss in One Piece is really horrible. He looks ugly on the outside, but on the inside, he has a disgusting personality.
He usually wears a green cloak, accompanied by an ivory-white overcoat, decorated with badges that he did not earn himself.
Perhaps the most disliked features of Charloss are his fish-like lips, constant runny nose, and hooded glasses so he “doesn’t have to breathe the same air as the people”.
Charloss’s appearance evoked a life of luxury that he did not deserve, this is what happens when one never has to struggle or work and still have all one wants.
Shinobu is a female Ninja from Wano Country and a subordinate of the Kozuki Family, she is also Shinosuke’s younger sister. The Juku Juku Devil Fruit that Shinobu possesses is known for its ability to decompose inanimate objects.
Although quite chubby, Shinobu is 1m80 tall. However, she still looks significantly shorter when standing next to others due to her physical flaws.
Shinobu has wide eyebrows, a fat nose, a chubby face, brown hair that is braided and often wears heavy makeup. Shinobu’s design doesn’t match her role in One Piece, it also stands out with its vibrant pink color.
Although she claims to be a Ninja, she does not have a toned body and her clothes are too prominent, making herself easy to spot during missions. What’s worse, Shinobu’s clothes don’t even match those of the people of Wano, making it difficult for her to escape.
On the other hand, her head is unusually large and causes a lot of obstacles in battle. In the past, Shinobu was a beautiful woman who had won the hearts of many enemies, making them go crazy with her beauty.
However, time has made Shinobu a middle-aged woman with a stout body. This sets her in contrast to Orochi and Yasui, whose appearance has not changed over the years.
It is theorized that Shinobu used her aging powers on herself to change her shape and escape the intense pursuit of Kaido and the Beasts gang, this is the reason why she became ugly within a short span of time. 20 years.
Boodle is the mayor of Orange Town and is known as one of the first characters to appear in One Piece. He is quite old, wears glasses with curly gray hair, usually wears a shirt, shorts and sandals.
When Zoro attacked Buggy to rescue Luffy and Nami, he cut Buggy into pieces. Thinking he would have an easy victory, Zoro did not thanks that Buggy’s hand split and stabbed him right in the hip.
When they escaped from the Buggy Pirates, they accidentally met Boodle, Zoro himself was allowed to sleep at his house by him. Unfortunately, his house was later completely destroyed by Buggy’s bomb.
Although not as weird as the other characters, his image in One Piece really doesn’t fit. Boodle’s rough wooden armor contrasts sharply with his checkered shirt and polite demeanor.
Perhaps the reason he tried to wear the armor was to show he was proficient in combat, but the truth was quite the opposite. The man is like pursuing two different fashion styles at the same time and in the end “nowhere”.
The mismatch between fighting style and fashion style makes Boodle look odd every time he appears. Fortunately, he has now discarded the armor after the Buggy gang’s threat to Orange Town ended.
Gecko Moria is the captain of the Thriller Bark crew and former member of the Shichibukai. Moria herself was once the captain of the Gecko Pirates, until most of the crew was killed in the fight against the Yonko Kaido.
This traumatic event led Moria to decide to seek strength through an army of zombies, built by Dr. Hogback. His goofy appearance made him disrespected in the eyes of others.
In addition, his body was shaped like the wooden pins from the game of Bowling, and the giant yellow tights were a stark contrast to his Gothic appearance.
Clown-sized shoes make him look like a scary villain from One Piece. Moria’s dumbest point is his ruffled tie because it symbolizes sophistication, completely separate from his outfit.
Gecko Moria’s eccentric attire led the World Government to consider him as someone who had dishonored the Shichibukai.
Mr. 9 was Princess Vivi’s male partner during her infiltration of Baroque Works.
Mr. 9 is qualified to become a senior employee thanks to his flexible body that allows him to easily do somersaults as well as roll. But compared to other characters in One Piece, the power of Mr. 9 is nothing.
He and Vivi accidentally encountered the Straw Hats while trying to capture Laboon whales to provide meat to the bounty hunters at Whiskey Peak. The Straw Hats decided to give them a lift because they accidentally damaged their Log Pose.
Since there is magnetic activity in the Dai Hai Line, a normal compass cannot be used. Log Pose, also known as self-recording magnet needle, must be used for positioning, which is an item that must be carried with you at all times.
Respectfully for working together during the past time, Mr. 9 has retained Mr. 5 and Miss valentine to give Vivi time to run away. He also affirmed that they will forever be teammates.
The fact that he put his teammates above loyalty to the organization made Mr. 5 decided for him to explode and fall into the river. Despite being a Baroque Works employee, he tried to verify his identity, to the point of writing “9” twice on his face.
In addition to drawing two 9’s on his face, his outfit is not better. The green rimmed clothes he was wearing resembled that of a nobleman rather than a pirate.
The tiara was more like a children’s toy than something the nobility would wear. Overall appearance of Mr. 9 looks pretty ridiculous because it’s a stark contrast.
Emporio Ivankov, known as Iva for short, holds the title of queen of the Kamabakka Kingdom, known as a miracle worker and member of the revolutionary army.
He was once a prisoner on the 5th floor of Impel Down, then lived in the secret base “Okama Paradise” on the 5.5th floor but has returned as the queen of Kamabakka kingdom.
Although Ivankov delivers excellent scenes in One Piece, his costume still has a lot of work to do. Mesh stockings, high heels, and bare breasts are not suitable for the head of a country or someone with a position in the ranks of the revolutionary army.
In addition, Ivankov’s head is almost a third the size of the entire body. The dagger-like chin ruined his facial features and set him apart from most during the Marineford war.
For someone hiding from the World Government, Ivankov’s appearance attracted too much attention.
Giolla’s color scheme is not cool at all. The orange polka dots looked like stains on a dark blue dress, though it hinted at her inherently artistic nature.
The mixture of yellow and orange in the hair looks so strange that most members of the Donquixote family consider it not a fashion style that is aesthetically pleasing or trendy.
However, Giolla’s unconventional look may have been a deliberate choice as in One Piece she demonstrated an obsession with abstract art and a willingness to defy conventional norms.
Giolla is only interested in her own perception of beauty, not others, so she is willing to create works that people around her consider “ugly”.
The fact that Senor Pink wears infant clothes makes him mocked and becomes a laughing stock for those around him. He knew wearing such clothes would dishonor his face and admitted that they were completely out of line with his reputation.
When Senor Pink was in his 30s, his appearance was much neater and more beautiful than he is now. He usually wears a black suit with a floral scarf, and his hair is neatly combed.
The fact that Senor Pink wears it like that has its own reason, on a return visit to his wife and children, he collapsed when he learned that it had been lost for a week. The wife in grief left when it was stormy, had an accident and became a vegetal.
Pink feels himself responsible for the unhappiness in his wife’s life. The only thing that made her smile was seeing him in his baby clothes.
For Pink, this is the only thing that can be done for his wife to make her happier. His wife Russian had a surprised reaction to see him in baby clothes, but she could not recover from the accident and was gone forever.
