Buffalo is the alias[3] of a combatant of the Donquixote Pirates[1] and an officer of the Pica Army.[4] His real name has yet to be revealed.[3]


Buffalo is a large man with disproportionate, thin limbs. His dark hair is arranged in a propeller-like formation, and though his hairdo may seem deliberately styled this way, the hairs which stick out are actually cowlicks.[5] Inititally, he was seen with several cowlicks in the shape of a turbine formation, but was later seen with just four in the shape of a more traditional propeller. He has protruding teeth where his crew's Jolly Roger is depicted. He wears a yellow fur coat and wraps thick chains around his body, and is seen wearing a pair of strange-shaped boots.[1]

At 14 years old, Buffalo already possessed a large physique for his age and slight buckteeth. His hair was arranged into two antennae and he wore a beanie.[6] At age 20, Buffalo's buckteeth did not yet carry the crew's symbol, and his hair was organized in more of a clover-petals formation, similar to the shape of a ship propeller. His clothes were darker in color than his current attire.[7]

Buffalo is very loyal to his "family", being perfectly fine with that fact that Donquixote Doflamingo destroyed eight cities and all the people living there, simply for the sake of keeping Baby 5 away from her "boyfriends".[1] He follows the crew's blood law very seriously, as when seeing Trafalgar Law stabbing Corazon, Buffalo immediately decided to tell Doflamingo about it;[8] he flew into a rage when Kyros decapitated a string clone of Doflamingo, believing that gladiator has killed the real "young master".[9]

During his childhood, Buffalo was something of a prankster, playing tricks on the ever-clumsy Corazon and getting a chuckle at the officer's expense, despite being struck across the face in return.[6] He also once laughed at Pica's voice, which resulted in torture as punishment.[8] However, typical for a sweet-loving child, he was easily bribed when Law gave him some ice cream in exchange for his silence about stabbing Corazon.[3]

He seems to be a compulsive gambler, and enjoys gambling as he asked Baby 5 for a loan of Beli2,000,000, despite just teasing asking her how high in debt she is, so he can take it to the casino after their mission.[1] He apparently does not approve of cheaters, as a group of hustlers swindling a blind man in Acacia were noted to only have been doing so because of Buffalo's absence.[10]

Despite his aloof and greedy personality, he also seems to be very enthusiastic, as he is almost always seen smiling. He also has a habit of saying "nnnniin" during his sentences, to imitate the sound of a propeller.[1]

Abilities and PowersEdit

As a combatant of a former Shichibukai's crew, it stands to reason that Buffalo is a powerful fighter. He has been partnered with Baby 5, and the two of them use their abilities in conjuncture with each other to make powerful combinations.[11] The two were already capable members of the crew in their childhoods, whereas as much as 100 recruits had left after two days, tops, from inability to keep up with the training regimen.[6]

Buffalo has been shown to possess incredible endurance, as he was able to take several powerful attacks such as Franky Shogun's General Cannon and Nami's Thunder Breed Tempo before finally being knocked unconscious by Usopp's Totsugeki Ryuseigun.[12]

Devil FruitEdit

Buffalo using his power to fly.

Buffalo ate the Guru Guru no Mi, a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit which allows him to turn into a rotating man. This grants him the ability to turn his limbs into propellers, which allows him to fly across the sea and skies and, due to his large body, serve as a means of transportation, as seen when he and Baby 5 were flying over the coast of Punk Hazard, as well as spin all the propellers on his own body to create powerful gusts of wind. He can also create centripetal force by spinning his own body and use it in conjunction with Baby 5's weaponized body to increase the damage she can inflict.[11]


Buffalo uses his own rotational abilities in conjunction with Baby 5's ability to transform into a full-body blade to create a powerful spinning cut that can cut through incoming projectiles[11] or pierce through heavy armor.[12]



When Buffalo was 14 years old, he was in Spider Miles, a port town in North Blue. He was with the Donquixote Pirates during the time Trafalgar Law approached Doflamingo's crew with the resolution to kill as many people as he could in the three years he had left to live. Buffalo once made fun of Pica's voice, and suffered torture as punishment.[8] He and Baby 5 informed Trebol and Diamante that Corazon had returned. The children laughed at Corazon's clumsiness when he fell over upon entering the room and were struck by the officer in return. They were shocked when Corazon threw Law out the window, thinking that the impact had killed him.[6]

Donquixote Pirates 16 Years Ago

After Law had been with the crew for about a week, Buffalo was seen having a meal with the other members of Doflamingo's "family". After Law was informed about the crew's blood law, Buffalo mentioned about once laughing at Pica's voice and receiving torture afterwards. The crew then learned that Law was sick with the Amber Lead Syndrome. Buffalo panicked when Jora said the disease was contagious. Even though Doflamingo corrected her, Buffalo still remained cautious. They then heard how Law escaped the extermination of Flevance. While most of the crew was out on a raid, Buffalo was shocked as he witnessed Law breaking the blood law by stabbing Corazon in the back.[8]

However, Law managed to bribe him with some ice cream so Buffalo did not say anything. When Law was brought before Doflamingo by Jora and Machvise, Buffalo thought that Law was going to receive punishment. Instead, Doflamingo announced that he was going to make Law an official member of the crew. During the next two years, Buffalo was shown participating in several activities with the crew such as looting, making business deals, and collecting bounties. Eventually, he revealed his real name to Law and Baby 5 and insisted that Law revealed his too, even threatening to tell everybody about what he did to Corazon two years ago. After learning Law's real name, he witnessed Corazon carrying a protesting Law away. Buffalo remarked that Corazon looked scarier than normal that day.[3]

Buffalo and Baby 5 later witnessed Law tripping Corazon and making him fall into a garbage dump. Law offered Buffalo some ice cream to keep him quiet. The crew was later engaged in a battle with the Marines out at sea when Law and Corazon suddenly left.[13]

Six months after Corazon and Law left the crew, the Donquixote Pirates plotted to steal the Ope Ope no Mi from pirates who were going to sell it to the Marines.[14] They later arrived at Minion Island and were informed by Vergo of Corazon's treachery.[15]

While Doflamingo covered part of the island in his birdcage, Buffalo and Baby 5 scout the island from the sky. After Corazon's capture, Buffalo and Baby 5 informed Doflamingo that the Marines stationed at the island took custody of a boy. Thinking that the boy was Law, the Donquixote Pirates left Corazon for dead and prepared for departure. Before leaving the island, they found themselves under fire by Tsuru's squadron.[16]

He participated in Doflamingo's takeover of Dressrosa. After Monet opened the gates to the royal palace, the Donquixote Pirates stormed the palace.[7]

Dressrosa SagaEdit

Punk Hazard ArcEdit

When Trafalgar Law plotted to steal SAD from Punk Hazard, Doflamingo decided to send Buffalo and Baby 5 to assist Vergo, Monet, and Caesar Clown in exterminating Law, the Straw Hat Pirates, and the G-5 Marines led by Smoker and Tashigi.[17]

Off the coast of Punk Hazard, the two traveled towards the island, with Baby 5 riding on top of Buffalo, who was flying with his propellers. As Baby 5 complained about how Doflamingo killed her eight fiances and destroyed the towns of their respective origins, Buffalo defended Doflamingo's actions by saying that he was merely trying to protect Baby 5 from the consequences of her rash decisions, and that their young master treats her like a younger sister more than anything. Buffalo then mocked Baby 5's habit of never rejecting any requests by taunting her about her debt, to which she snapped at him that she knows about this. Right after that, Buffalo then took advantage of his partner's personality flaw by asking for a loan of Beli2,000,000 so that he will be able to go to the casino when they return to Dressrosa, to which Baby 5 happily agreed.[1]

As the conversation reached an end, the two entered Punk Hazard's vicinity, which was covered in H2S gas released by Caesar's Shinokuni. When Baby 5 offered to blast away the smokescreen, Buffalo insists that he would do so instead, and when she jumped off of his back, he spun his own body rapidly to create a gust of wind. After the gas was dispelled and the tanker ship uncovered, the two decided to wait for Monet, Caesar, and Vergo, when suddenly, a massive explosion came from the tanker. Thinking that it blew up at first, they instantly realized that something struck it.[1]

Upon seeing that the something was Caesar Clown, having been sent flying by Monkey D. Luffy, Buffalo contacted Doflamingo and reported it; the surprised Shichibukai immediately changed their mission to recovering Caesar and returning to Dressrosa immediately. They then contemplated what they should do about Monet and Vergo, but they ultimately decided that their captain's orders are first priority. As they approached Caesar's unconscious body, Baby 5 saw someone standing on the deck of the tanker; Buffalo argued that it was impossible for anyone to survive the deadly gas, but it turned out to be Franky in his robot.[1]

Baby 5 and Buffalo Are Defeated by Nami

Buffalo and Baby 5 electrocuted by Nami's attack.

After seeing Buffalo flying in midair, Franky attacked, causing Buffalo and Baby 5 to falter. They immediately regained their stability and after Baby 5's Gatling gun attack failed to cause any damage to the Franky Shogun mech, Buffalo swung Baby 5 in her "Espada Girl" sword form with his rotating ability to cut through Franky's shield projectile. Seeing Franky as a detriment to retrieving Caesar, Buffalo used his "Spinning Cannon" to launch Baby 5 in her "Missile Girl" form at Franky to cause a massive explosion.[11] Franky Shogun withstood the attack and continued the battle. After realizing that he was having trouble dealing with the robot, Buffalo contacted Doflamingo again, and the Shichibukai ordered them to deal with the robot, as he would be there shortly.[18] Baby 5 transformed into a sickle, and with Buffalo, managed to pierce Franky Shogun's left arm. Undeterred, Franky blew them away with General Cannon.[12]

Buffalo and Baby 5 managed to get back up, but upon seeing Law, the Marines, and the Straw Hat Pirates approaching, they decided to grab Caesar and run. As they fled through the sky, Nami struck them down with Lightning Breed Tempo before the pair were finished off by Usopp's Totsugeki Ryuseigun.[12] The three were then seen briefly before the Straw Hats, the G-5 Marines, and the former Punk Hazard soldiers started their party.[19]

After the Straw Hats, the G-5, and Law were done celebrating their success, Law decided to decapitate Buffalo and Baby 5. Both heads were then put on a raft and sent towards the direction that Doflamingo is coming from. Upon seeing Doflamingo, Buffalo shouted out to him. He apologized to Doflamingo for failing him and said that he wanted to apologize by taking his own life. Doflamingo told him and Baby 5 that he did not need an explanation, since they only followed his orders. Both him and Baby 5 then listened to the conversation between Doflamingo and Law. When Law demanded Doflamingo to resign his position as a Shichibukai, Buffalo got mad.[20]

While the G-5 Marines and Caesar's former test subjects looked for all people who were petrified and left behind, some of the Marines came across the decapitated bodies of Buffalo and Baby 5. While the baffled Marines pondered what to do with them, their heads seemingly came flying down from the sky and attached themselves to the bodies. It was then revealed that Doflamingo accompanied the two back to Punk Hazard, to look for Law and the Straw Hat Pirates.[21]

Before Doflamingo could kill Smoker, Kuzan suddenly appeared and interrupted him.[21] Rather than fighting Kuzan, Doflamingo left Punk Hazard with both Buffalo and Baby 5.[22]

Dressrosa ArcEdit

Kyros vs Buffalo

Kyros defeats Buffalo.

When the royal palace was under attack, Buffalo and Baby 5 were seen in the second floor suit room as Doflamingo interrogated Law about the Straw Hats' objectives.[23]

When Sugar lost consciousness, all the toys in Dressrosa returned to their original forms. As the Donquixote Family's hold on the kingdom crumbled, Buffalo screamed in terror when Kyros seemingly decapitated Doflamingo.[24]

Infuriated at Doflamingo's supposed death, Buffalo tried to attack Kyros in retribution, but was quickly defeated by having his neck broken and being thrown out of the tower while screaming.[9]

After the Donquixote Pirates' defeat, Buffalo and his fellow officers were arrested by the Marines.[25]
