"Sweeper" Bobbin is a "bishop" combatant[3] in the Big Mom Pirates.[1]


Bobbin Digital Colored Manga

A full view of Bobbin in the digital colored manga.

Bobbin is a rather short yet broad individual with a wide grin and thick, red lips who wears a white mask covering a portion of his face. He has rather strange body proportions, as his shoulders appears to be higher than his chin and his arms are twice the length of his legs. His mask also features dark glasses, which obscure his eyes. He carries a sword larger than himself which is slung over his back and a black hat with a big white tuft sticking out of it. He also sports purple and black pinstriped pants with a large brown belt holding them up, a pink shirt, brown gloves, dark boots, and a long light blue cape which is also bigger than Bobbin himself.[1]


Bobbin seems to be quite ruthless, as shown when he reported to Big Mom after burning down an entire country and seemed pleased with himself for doing so. Furthermore, he is very loyal to his captain and shows absolutely no concern for islands that cannot pay her tribute. He even asked Linlin if she also wanted to burn Fishman Island when he heard that they could not deliver her any candy for quite a while.[1]

He also seems to be gluttonous and disrespectful of other people's property, as seen when he took a piece of meat from a basket that Sanji was carrying.[4]

Bobbin has a habit of bobbing his head side to side when talking. Bobbin also has a signature laugh, starting with "Bo", continuing with "yoyo", and ending with an "n" ("Boyoyon").[1]



Unlike most of the other members of the crew, Bobbin does not seem to fear his captain in the slightest as shown when he came up to her upon his return and had a friendly chat with her. He is very considerate to Big Mom as he gladly delivers sweets to her from other islands.[1]


Straw Hat PiratesEdit

Bobbin became an enemy of the Straw Hats when Luffy defeated Charlotte Cracker. Bobbin gathered with the rest of his crewmates and attacked Luffy before capturing him and Nami. He later tried to steal food from Sanji only to be viciously attacked by the latter. Bobbin was angered by Sanji's actions and attempted to pursue him before he was ambushed by Vito.

Abilities and PowersEdit

Bobbin was sent to burn down an island that failed to make its monthly tribute, a task in which he succeeded alongside several comrades.[1] He has a great reputation, as Germa Kingdom princes Vinsmoke Niji and Vinsmoke Yonji recognized him as a heavyweight within the Big Mom Pirates, which is notable considering the vast size and strength of the crew.[2] Bobbin was able to help bring down Luffy (while in his Gear Second form) during the Big Mom Pirates' attack on him and Nami.

However, Bobbin can let his guard down easily, like when he took the meat out of Sanji's bento box, the cook was able to swiftly smash Bobbin into a wall with one kick, leaving Bobbin shocked and injured on the floor.[4]


Bobbin's Devil Fruit Powers

Bobbin puts someone to sleep.

Bobbin has an ability that allows him to emanate rays that put people to sleep by bobbing his head.[3]


He wields a sword that is about twice his size. It is unknown how skilled he is with it.[1]


Fishman Island SagaEdit

Fishman Island ArcEdit

Bobbin returned to Whole Cake Island after burning down a country that had failed to pay its candy tribute. He informed Big Mom that islands that cannot pay must be destroyed and offered to burn down Fishman Island, which had not paid its tribute either.[1]

Yonko SagaEdit

Whole Cake Island ArcEdit

Enraged Army

Bobbin leads an army to take down Luffy and Nami.

After Monkey D. Luffy defeated Charlotte Cracker, Bobbin and an army marched towards Luffy's location and started battling him.[5]

Once Luffy and Nami were overwhelmed, Big Mom's army learned that the Vivre Card Nami had in her possession came from Lola, which surprised them. The army then headed back to Sweet City with the captured Straw Hat Pirates.[6]

In the Prisoner Library, Bobbin and some of the Charlotte Family sat and listened as Big Mom spoke to the captive Luffy and Nami through a Den Den Mushi.[7] After Anglais brought word of an intruder in the castle, all but Charlotte Opera left the library.[8]

Sanji Attacks Bobbin

Bobbin is attacked by Sanji.

As he later wandered in Whole Cake Château, he encountered Vinsmoke Sanji and tried to eat the meat from the bento box next to him. Sanji, out of rage that someone tried to eat the dish meant for his captain, violently kicked him into a wall before running away, much to Bobbin's shock.[4]

Some of Bobbin's crewmates raced to the scene to find out what happened, but Bobbin put them to sleep, intent on fixing the situation himself. He then broke off into a sprint, saying that even demons would attend Big Mom's tea parties.[9] Sometime after leaving the castle, Bobbin was ambushed and shot by Vito and collapsed from his wounds shortly afterwards.[10] Vito later told Bege that he had disposed of Bobbin.[11]

Major BattlesEdit

Translation and Dub IssuesEdit

Bobbin's epithet, Shimatsu-ya (始末屋?), has brought the into the community some translation and dub issues due to the word's multiple meanings. In Japanese, shimatsu (始末?) means "to get rid of". It also can mean "assassinate", depending on the context. Adding -ya (? "store") implies that a Shimatsu-ya is somebody who gets rid of things for a living or as a business. Despite this, the dictionary definition for 始末屋 is "a thrifty person", hence the term is used as a pun in Bobbin's epithet to mean a "thrifty killer".
