"Water Buffalo" Atmos is the commander of the 13th division of the Whitebeard Pirates.[1]


Atmos is a huge man, roughly the size of Jozu, whose choice of clothing he somehow mirrors: he is dressed in sleeveless gray and golden armor, and wears an old-fashioned Asian-themed gray helmet that has bull horns sticking out of it, that makes him resemble a water buffalo, as per his epithet. He has long, mane-like black hair, reaching down to his waist, and his beard is just as long. He has two teeth resembling those of a walrus, but square-shaped and pointing upwards. On each of his arms, he bears a purple tattooed silhouette of Whitebeard's Jolly Roger.


He seems to be very loyal to Whitebeard, as he is willing to risk his life to save Ace from his execution. 

Abilities and PowersEdit

As the commander of the 13th division of Whitebeard's crew, Atmos has command and responsibility over the pirates within his division. He seems to be quite well known, as Shichibukai Donquixote Doflamingo knew who he was when the two encountered each other on the battlefield.


Atmos carries around two large swords, and can apparently deal devastating blows with them, as seen when under Doflamingo's control, he attacked and defeated several of his own men and even destroyed their weapons. In the anime he could even block bullets that were shot from rifles to protect his allies.


Summit War SagaEdit

Marineford ArcEdit

Atmos body manipulated

Atmos' body is manipulated by Doflamingo to attack his own crew.

Atmos arrived at Marineford along with other Division Commanders of the Whitebeard Pirates, with the intention of rescuing Ace. Seeing Doflamingo laughing at Little Oars Jr.'s sacrifice, Atmos and his men confronted the Shichibukai. However, before they could do anything, Atmos found himself being controlled by Doflamingo. He was then forced to fight his own men, who were all very surprised and tried to stop him without hurting him.[1]

Eventually he was freed from Doflamingo's control, and continued on with the battle. He made it onto the black paddle ship and was later standing next to his fellow Whitebeard Pirates.[3]

Atmos, some other Division Commanders, and Jinbe made a defensive line behind Whitebeard to cover him.[4] He, Marco, and Vista looked on in shock as Akainu's fist penetrated Ace's body.[5] He later cried and mourned over the death of Whitebeard.[6] He joined his crew members, ready to fight Akainu. This battle was never shown, but he is shown to be unharmed later on.[7] Upon the arrival of Shanks and Sengoku calling the war to a close, he and the rest of Whitebeard's crew left.[8]

Post-War ArcEdit

Atmos and the rest of the crew attended Whitebeard and Ace's funeral at an undisclosed location somewhere in the New World.[9]

During the TimeskipEdit

One year after the war at Marineford, the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates fought against the Blackbeard Pirates but ultimately lost. They went into hiding and had not been seen since their defeat.[10]
