The Big Mom Pirates[1] are an infamous pirate crew. The crew's captain is one of the Yonko, Charlotte Linlin.

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

At some point, Caesar Clown was commissioned by Big Mom to do some specific research. The research failed, but Caesar took the money anyway, making him an enemy of the Big Mom Pirates.[2]

During the TimeskipEdit

Sometime after the Whitebeard War, Big Mom's crew agreed to protect Fishman Island in exchange for ten tons of sweets a month.[3] However, Linlin rarely enforces her protection on the island, as she did nothing to prevent the civil war between the Ryugu Kingdom and the New Fishman Pirates, as her pirates even stated that a civil war was not their problem. Around this time would also be when the remnants of the Sun Pirates, including Jinbe, would come to work under Big Mom, although she primarily let them do as they pleased.

Some time before before the Straw Hat Pirates arrived to Fishman Island, Eustass Kid sank two of Big Mom's allies' ships.

Fishman Island ArcEdit

After Fishman Island was nearly destroyed by the New Fishman Pirates' coup d'état, Tamago and Pekoms arrived to collect the candy payment while disregarding the civil war. Meanwhile, Bobbin had finished attacking another of their territories due to the failure of delivering Charlotte Linlin her candy payment. Back at Fishman Island, when Tamago and Pekoms found out about the situation, they reported it to Bobbin, who told Big Mom, who in turn phoned Fishman Island. Luffy answered and took responsibility for the lost candy right before declaring war against Big Mom, stating that it was dangerous to leave the island under the control of someone who would destroy it just for candy. Pekoms later defeated Caribou with a single punch after he tried to retrieve the treasure Luffy had given them as compensation for the candy.

Punk Hazard ArcEdit

Pekoms and Tamago are later seen watching Caesar Clown's Den Den Mushi broadcast on his chemical weapon of mass destruction. After seeing Caesar's defeat by Luffy, Tamago suggested they call Big Mom.

Dressrosa ArcEdit

Curly Hats Attack Big Mom Pirates

The Sunny crew causes an explosion and escapes the Big Mom Pirates.

The crew approached Dressrosa on their ship, with the intent of capturing Caesar and sinking the Straw Hats.[4] However, the Sunny protection team launched a successful counterattack, creating a large explosion and escaping through fog.[5]

Big Mom had planned a union between the Charlotte Family and the Vinsmoke Family where the third Vinsmoke son, Sanji, would marry the 35th Charlotte daughter, Purin during a tea party. Sometime during the mission to take back Caesar, the Big Mom Pirates received orders to capture Sanji alive in order to bring him to the tea party.[6][7]

Zou ArcEdit

After the Straw Hats arrived on Zou, the Big Mom Pirates managed to follow the Straw Hats' trail due to overhearing their destination. They were able to get to Zou due to Pekoms being a native of the island, and they arrived seven days later, with Pekoms and Bege going ashore.[8]

Bege Shoots Pekoms

Bege shoots Pekoms in the back after the mink attempts to fail their mission.

Bege and Pekoms reached Zou, and Pekoms became enraged when he saw his homeland destroyed. He reunited with his tribesmen, and Sanji made contact with Bege in order to settle things. Pekoms thanked Sanji for saving the minks and offered to fail their mission to take Sanji if they got Caesar. Angered that Pekoms was sabotaging the mission, Bege shot him in the back. The Firetank Pirates then came out of his body and surrounded Sanji and Brook, with Nami and Chopper being captured by Vito. Bege took the Straw Hats inside his body, where he revealed to Sanji that he was set to marry Purin at Big Mom's tea party.[9]

Sanji refused, but Bege did not give him a choice as Vito revealed a secret about him that they knew. Sanji agreed to come along if he could write a note to his crew. As Sanji talked with his captured crewmates, he suddenly threw them out of Bege's body and held Caesar at gunpoint in order to keep the Firetank Pirates from harming his friends. Bege was then confronted by Nekomamushi, who wanted to know what happened to Pekoms. In a bad situation, Bege escaped from Zou with Sanji and Caesar inside him, leaving Pekoms behind.[10]

Two days later, a recovering Pekoms met the Straw Hats that had just arrived and told them more about the Vinsmoke Family and the arranged marriage.[11] He intended to return once his injuries had healed, and Luffy ordered him to take him to Big Mom's tea party.[12]

Jolly RogerEdit

The Big Mom Pirates' Jolly Roger is a skull with thick lips and wearing a pirate tricorne, on a fluffy background (which could represent Linlin's hair in some fashion) with several candy canes crossed behind it (one on the right, three stacked together on the left), in place of normal crossbones. A tree is seen coming out of the cane on the bottom right.

Like the Whitebeard Pirates, the Big Mom Pirates have a simpler Jolly Roger, consisting of the normal skull-and-crossbones, but retaining the large lips of the original.[4]

Crew StrengthEdit

Even the demons of hell will come when called to Mama's tea parties!
— Vito[13]

Captained by one of the Yonko, it can be presumed that the Big Mom Pirates are incredibly strong. One of their members, Bobbin, was powerful enough to pillage an entire country with only a handful of men, and Pekoms single-handedly defeated Caribou, a Logia user and Super Rookie, on his own and with a single attack. His bounty is also quite high, at Beli330,000,000. It was said that if an island does not pay its tribute she will destroy it using her army of "monsters". Indeed her crew so far has been quite varied, consisting of a long-legged person, a talking lion capable of turning into a tortoise, a wide-faced mask-wearing man, and a three-eyed girl, making her crew one of the most diverse since the Straw Hat Pirates themselves.

Tea Party Refusal Consequences

Had Sanji refused the invitation, he would receive an unpleasant "present".

Furthermore, Linlin has several islands under her control, and the citizens of Fishman Island, fearing her wrath, agreed to produce the ten tons of candy she orders every month. It is common knowledge to everyone in the New World that Big Mom's "invitation" to her tea parties is in name only, and that it is a summon order that, if declined, would result the invitee to be choked with regret. It is said that even demons from hell will attend the party when invited by Big Mom.[13] Refusal would result in the invitee being sent a box containing the head of someone they personally know, even if that person is someone of notable strength or in another part of the sea beyond the Calm Belts and Red Line, demonstrating how far reaching the crew's power is.[14]

They also have multiple ships and allies, some of which were sunk by Eustass Kid. After Whitebeard died, the Sun Pirates apparently joined with them so Fishman Island would be under her protection, which increased the Big Mom Pirates' power. Jinbe, however, is not really loyal to her and is thinking of leaving her. Also Capone Bege, a rookie pirate captain from The Worst Generation has aligned with the crew.

ShipEdit

Big Mom Pirates' Ship

Big Mom's ship.

One of the Big Mom Pirates' ships is referred to as "Singing Ship" by Nami. It is enormous, easily over twenty times the size of the Thousand Sunny. Putting it in perspective with the Thousand Sunny, Big Mom's ship could tower over 500 meters. It has a prevalent confectionery theme, having frosting over its railings, ice cream cones at the top of its masts, candy canes and wafers on the sides of the main deck, and a large candle-lit, double-layered cake directly behind its figurehead. The figurehead (or the entire ship) seems to be alive, in the shape of a clown with a tricorne hat and a crown, that sings about itself being a ship. The ship has numerous cannons mounted on its side.[4] Several returned cannonballs damaged the starboard side.[5]

List of protected territoriesEdit

The Big Mom Pirates are known to have the following territories under their protection:

Other InformationEdit

The crew members call their captain "Mama", though most fear her, as she frequently throws violent rages when she is displeased especially when she does not receive the candy she expects. She even cannibalizes her subordinates on a whim. Bobbin and a three-eyed girl are the only known exceptions in fearing her.

Linlin herself has great influence, as her declaration of protecting Fishman Island continued the island's peace when Edward Newgate died along with his protection. However, her "protection" is little more than extortion, as failure to make a payment will result in Fishman Island (or any other island that cannot pay their tribute) being destroyed, with no grace period whatsoever. This makes her method similar to that of the Arlong Pirates. After acquiring the candy payment from the various islands, the crew would hold a tea party.

Sailing under Big Mom is to have their bloodlines tied to the crew, meaning a political wedding must occur for any families to join the Charlotte Family. That being said, any groom or bride from an outside family must sever their connections with any previous affiliations in order to truly become a member of the Big Mom Pirates, as Sanji was noted that he must cease being a Straw Hat Pirate once he weds Purin.[14]

The crew is also connected with the underworld of brokering, as Pekoms and Tamago were seen paying attention to Caesar Clown's broadcast of an illegal chemical weapon of mass destruction.[16]

TriviaEdit

  • While Big Mom is known for sending gruesome presents to those who refuse to go to her tea parties, she has ironically been sent one of her own, courtesy of Luffy: the Tamatebako box, which the Minister of the Right has rigged to explode if anyone tries opening it, though Luffy was not made aware of this until after he had given away to Pekoms and Tamago, thinking it would appease Big Mom.
