"Demon Lady" Charlotte Amande is a daughter of the Charlotte Family[2] and a member of the Big Mom Pirates.[4] She is a hybrid between a human and a member of the Snakeneck Tribe.[5] She is Totto Land's Minister of Nuts (ナッツ大臣 Nattsu Daijin?).[3]

AppearanceEdit

Amande Full Body

A full-body view of Amande.

Amande is a tall, very slim, and extremely pale woman with long, light blue hair that is curled at the end.[1] She has large lips, sullen light green eyes, and a small, almost flat nose. As a member of the Snakeneck Tribe, she has an unusually long neck which has a tattoo of a stripe and two hearts on it.[6]

Her face is obscured by a hat with an extremely wide brim which is easily about three times her size.[4] When her face is visible, she usually wears a cold and melancholic expression with a lit cigarette in corner of her mouth. She wears a pair of hooped earrings,[6] a light blue dress with vertical stripes, and a red sash around her waist.[1]

PersonalityEdit

What is the use in killing another if their life ends instantly……?!!! I only slice my foes at the most painful and excruciating of speeds…!!!
— Amande[6]


Amande is very loyal to her mother and will execute any mission she is given, with no qualms about killing enemies.[4] She seems to be highly ruthless and sadistic at the same time, as she claims there is no meaning in slaughter without grievously tormenting the victim first as shown when she killed King Baum, she made sure that his death would be long and agonizing, even though he tried to explain himself of his powerlessness against the Straw Hats.[6]

She appears to hold care for the island she governs, Nuts Island, as she tried to stop Big Mom from destroying it. Amande even showed concern for her family as when Brûlée called out to her for help,[7] she tried to save her.[8]

Abilities and PowersEdit

As Minister of Nuts, Amande has authority over Nuts Island and governs over Peanuts Town. She is capable of leading the island's Tarteships into combat.[3]

Amande is a capable warrior, as she was capable of massacring several armed knights in order to gather eggs.[1] She has a great reputation, as Germa Kingdom princes Vinsmoke Niji and Vinsmoke Yonji recognized her as a heavyweight within the Big Mom Pirates, which is notable considering the great size and strength of the crew.[4]

Physical AbilitiesEdit

Amande is extremely strong, as the force of her sword strikes can cut down large number of knights equipped with metal armors and shields.[1] While killing Baum, Amande was able to cleanly slice through his giant trunk with great ease, despite cutting him at slow speed to torment him.[6] She also managed to cut through Perospero's extremely hard Candy Wall that is resilient enough to withstand Luffy's Gigant Pistol. Despite the size of her sword, Amande is very quick, as she rapidly moved to attack Luffy from behind.[8]

SwordsmanshipEdit

Main article: Shirauo

Amande wields a nodachi called Shirauo. The sword is a Meito, implying that it is of very high quality.[6] Amande is exceptionally proficient with her Nodachi Shirauo and has great cutting ability with it, as she could easily massacre an entire army of armored knights,[1] cut apart the massive tree homie King Baum,[6] and cleave through her brother Perospero's Candy Wall.[8]

HistoryEdit

Yonko SagaEdit

Whole Cake Island ArcEdit

Amande Acquires Eggs

Amande acquires eggs for the wedding cake.

Three days before the wedding between Charlotte Pudding and Vinsmoke Sanji, Charlotte Linlin sent Amande to an island decorated with very large eggs in order to gather eggs for the wedding cake. Amande succeeded in obtaining them after massacring several knights guarding them.[1]

Amande bisects King Baum

Amande bisects King Baum.

Two days later, Amande was on Whole Cake Island. After Monkey D. Luffy defeated Sweet Commander Charlotte Cracker, Amande and an army marched towards Luffy's location and began battling him.[9] During the battle, Amande punished the homie King Baum for serving the Straw Hat Pirates by bisecting him vertically, making sure to make his death as slow as possible. After finishing Baum off, Amande removed Nami's Vivre Card and saw that it was from Lola. The army then returned to Sweet City with the captive Straw Hats in tow.[10]

Later, Amande attended a meeting to go over the statuses of the Sanji Retrieval Team and the Vinsmoke Family.[11] She attended Big Mom's Tea Party and wedding ceremony for Pudding and Sanji. After Luffy started causing chaos at the wedding venue, Amande witnessed Jinbe officially resigning from the Big Mom Pirates.[12]

While the Straw Hats and Fire Tank Pirates were hiding inside Bege's fortress after the failed assassination attempt on Big Mom, Amande commented that if the fortress were destroyed, everyone inside would be thrown out. As Big Mom assaulted the fortress, the Big Mom Pirates prepared to attack anyone who left it.[13] Just when Luffy's group, Bege's crew, and the Vinsmokes were routed by the Big Mom Pirates, the Tamatebako dropped to the base of the Whole Cake Chateau and exploded, causing the castle to topple over.[14][15] As the castle collapsed, Amande fell with it. However, the Big Mom Pirates were saved when Streusen used his ability to turn the falling castle into cake.[16]

As the Straw Hats were preparing to escape from Whole Cake Island, Amande's Tarteship was among the fleet of Tarteships surrounding the Thousand Sunny.[17][3] She later witnessed the Thousand Sunny using a Coup De Burst to fly away and then reported the ship's escape.[18]

Amande later went to Nuts Island, trying to dissuade Big Mom from destroying the island. She was then surprised to find Luffy, who just exited the Mirro-World with Brûlée.[7] As Big Mom began pursuing Luffy, Amande tried to attack him, but Luffy dodged the strike.[8]

Major BattlesEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Amande means "almond" in French, which follows the eating/food-themed names of the Charlotte Family and Big Mom Pirates.
  • Amande is left-handed, as she carries her sword in her left hand and her sheathe on her right hip.[4]
  • Amande's character may be inspired by onryō or similar Japanese folklore, due to her thin and pale appearance, long hair, sadistic nature and the epithet "Demon Lady". Her height and attire consisting of a long dress and wide brimmed hat are reminiscent of the urban legend Hachishakusama.
  • Brûlée refers Amande as her elder sister, meaning Amande could be anywhere from the second to the seventh daughter of the Charlotte Family.[19]
