"Bepo" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.

Bepo is a polar bear mink[3] and the navigator of the Heart Pirates under Captain Trafalgar Law.[2] He is the younger brother of the late Nox Pirate Zepo.[5]

AppearanceEdit

Bepo is a white bear (possibly a polar bear as noted by the Marines) mink. He wears an orange jumpsuit that bears the Heart Pirates' jolly roger. He also wears small brown boots and has sharp teeth and claws. He is as tall as a normal bear, considerably taller than common humans.

In Wano Country, he had a topknot despite having short fur and no hair. He also wore a yukata with the Heart Pirates' jolly roger surrounded by fish.

PersonalityEdit

Bepo tends to get depressed easily and apologizes whenever people point out that he is a talking bear. An example of his sensitivity is when Hancock called him a beast and scolded him for attempting to change the subject. His crewmates also scolded him when he wondered aloud whether Amazon Lily had female bears, much to their annoyance. Overall, members of the Heart Pirates accuse Bepo of having a weak will. Ironically, he was able to remain conscious after taking a blast of Conqueror's Haki from Rayleigh, a feat only the exceptionally strong-willed can accomplish. Those who do not know him call him meek.

He has been shown to order Jean Bart around (albeit unsuccessfully), seemingly delighted to have seniority over him. At the same time, he does not want Jean Bart to order him around. In the anime, he is shown to dislike hot environments (possibly due to his thick fur and the black/orange jumpsuit he wears), as he complained when the Heart Pirates' submarine was near an underwater volcanic region.

Sometimes, he can do foolish things like eating a fish from a toxic river.[8]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Bepo Attacks Marines

Bepo attacking a group of Marines.

As a member of the Mink Tribe, Bepo, like all other minks, is a born warrior. It can be presumed he is able to use Electro and transform into his Sulong form when gazing at the full moon like every other mink.

Bepo is fairly strong-willed, being able to withstand a blast of Silvers Rayleigh's Haki.[9]

He is also a skilled martial artist combining his fighting skills with his superior physical abilities as a mink, allowing him to take out several Marines with ease but he is not strong enough to break a Pacista as when he attempted to kick a Pacifista, he wounded his leg, similar to Sanji's attack on Bartholomew Kuma.

After the timeskip, Bepo's fighting skills and physical prowess significantly improved. In the anime, he could hold his own against the Artificial Zoan Devil Fruit users of the Beast Pirates for twelve consecutive hours before Nekomamushi forced him to retreat.

As the navigator of the Hearts Pirates, it can be assumed that Bepo has the knowledge required to navigate the seas. The level of his skills is as yet unknown, though it is expected that he is reasonably capable of navigating through the Grand Line. Interestingly enough, despite his occupation, he is not seen wearing a Log Pose, which is essential for Grand Line navigation. He also has some skill in cartography, as he was the one who drew the map of Dressrosa and Green Bit that Law shared with the Straw Hats. However, he appears to be a bit messy, as the map had his paw print on it, and Nami stated that his map-drawing and navigation skills are far from her own.[2]

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

SBS84 Heart

Law protecting Bepo from being bullied by Shachi and Penguin.

Bepo was born on Zou.[3] At age eight, Bepo wanted to chase after his older brother, Zepo, and climbed down Zunisha's leg to get a better view of the sea, but he got swept away.[10] He later boarded a ship heading for the North Blue, and a year later, he wandered through Swallow Island. On that island, he was bullied by two boys named Shachi and Penguin, but another boy named Trafalgar Law came and beat Shachi and Penguin up. Bepo, Shachi, and Penguin became interested in Law, and they joined him to form the Heart Pirates. Bepo studied navigation since he wanted to find the way back to Zou, and became the crew's navigator.[5]

Summit War SagaEdit

Sabaody Archipelago ArcEdit

He was seen alongside his Captain during the Supernovas' introductions and then in the Auction House with his crew. After the Celestial Dragon Incident, he fought against several Marines and then escaped with Law, Jean Bart, and the rest of the Heart Pirates, to later meet the Kid Pirates in a battle against a Pacifista unit.

Marineford ArcEdit

Heart Pirates Arrive at Marineford

The Heart Pirates arrive at Marineford.

Bepo was with the Heart Pirates when they were watching the war at Marineford. When the broadcast was cut off, Law told his crew that they were setting sail.

Bepo appeared with Trafalgar Law and his crew in Marineford after Luffy and Jinbe were wounded by Akainu. When Buggy left Luffy and Jinbe to the Heart Pirates, Bepo carried Luffy, noting that the Straw Hat captain was severely wounded and wondering if the boy was still alive.

He and the other Heart Pirates managed to elude the Admirals and escaped Marineford successfully. Out in the open sea, the crew encountered the Shichibukai Boa Hancock. When Hancock asked the crew about Luffy's condition, Bepo complimented Hancock for being able to track the submarine. Hancock then scolded Bepo for changing the subject and referred to him as "beast", which caused the bear to apologize and sink into a depression. Hancock then demanded Bepo to give her a Den Den Mushi and Bepo quickly complied which did not go too well for Bepo's crew mates.

Post-War ArcEdit

The Heart Pirates soon reached Amazon Lily and arrived at the port. While Bepo's crew mates were anxious to see into the isle of women, Bepo asked if there were female bears too and his crew mates snapped back reminding him Amazon Lily is a country of human women, causing Bepo to be depressed again.

After the arrival of Silvers Rayleigh, the Heart Pirates left Amazon Lily. Bepo's crew mates were depressed that they did not get a chance to peek into the women kingdom. Bepo stated that it would be better if they were bears, only to be told to shut up.

Bepo was then seen along with the rest of the Heart Pirates while Law was biding his time about going into the New World, though he was only sleeping and being used as a back rest by Law.

Post-TimeskipEdit

Before arriving at Dressrosa, Law revealed that Bepo and the other Heart Pirates went to an island called Zou.[11] After their arrival, Nekomamushi took them under his care.[12]

During the Beast Pirates' invasion, the Heart Pirates assisted the Mink Tribe.[13] They fought until Jack used one of Caesar's poison gas weapons. After Jack left and Sanji's group arrived, Bepo's injuries were tended to.[14]

Yonko SagaEdit

Zou ArcEdit

Right after the arrival of Luffy's group and Law, Bepo first appeared after the timeskip when he was trying to stop a fight between Luffy and a guardian. Bepo tried to explain that Luffy is an acquaintance, but the guardian ignored him, saying that Luffy was an intruder. After Wanda and Carrot arrived and stopped the fight, Bepo and the rest of the Heart Pirates got reacquainted with Luffy. At first, Bepo and the crew were confused about who "Tra-guy" was until Luffy clarified that it was Law. Bepo and the rest of the crew were excited to hear that Law was on Zou.[3] As Wanda took Luffy to see his friends, Bepo explained that he cannot leave the forest and asked Luffy to inform Law of his whereabouts.[12]

Law Reunites With His Crew

The Heart Pirates reunite with Law.

When Law arrived at their location, the Heart Pirates were overjoyed to be reunited with him.[15] After the Straw Hats returned to the Whale Forest, the Heart Pirates greeted Luffy but were then furious when Luffy and Law went on having a private conversation. The Heart Pirates and Luffy's crew (except Franky, Robin, and Brook) then partied with Nekomamushi and his subjects.[16]

After Inuarashi, Nekomamushi, the samurai, and the pirates returned from the Whale Tree with Raizo, Zou started shaking with Zunisha crying, throwing everyone into a state of panic.[17] Zou's shaking was due to Jack's assault on Zunisha upon his return. However, Zunisha retaliated and sank Jack's fleet. After the threat of Jack ended, everyone became calm again.[18] As the Sanji retrieval team departed from Zou, everyone, except for the Straw Hat members left behind, was shocked when Luffy jumped off Zunisha with his party.[19]

Wano Country ArcEdit

After leaving Zou, the Heart Pirates infiltrated Wano Country. On top of a mountain, Bepo, Shachi, and Penguin spotted Luffy and Zoro through binoculars as the latter two entered Okobore Town.[20] When Luffy and Zoro were heading to Bakura Town in pursuit of a Gifter that abducted a little girl, the trio informed Law about the situation.[21]

On the way to Bakura Town, Bepo ate a fish from the polluted river and got sick, delaying Law from reaching the town.[22] Suffering from diarrhea, Bepo hid in the bushes near the ruins of Oden Castle.[23] Bepo was then seen lying on the ground next to Law, Penguin, and Shachi as Kin'emon told Luffy's group about Wano's past.[24] He then witnessed Kaido's arrival to the Kuri region.[25]
