Being part of quintuplets, Counter resembles Opera, and is an enormous man with an extremely thick body. He has dark brown hair arranged in a mohawk, and a very large beard. He wears a dark blue vest with thick pink edges and dark colored pants. Like his brothers, he also wears dotted wristlets and a dotted belt. His legs are extremely small in comparison to the rest of his body.
Counter shows no mercy or patience for his enemies, as he stomped on Luffy to knock him out after he was defeated and injured and refused to let go of the ground.
Abilities and PowersEdit
- Cream Punch (クリームパンチ Kurīmu Panchi?): An attack performed together with his brother Cadenza. The two of them attack their opponent from opposite sides with Busoshoku Haki-imbued punches. This was first used against Luffy and was strong enough to bring him down (however, Luffy was already significantly fatigued and damaged from his fights with Cracker, Sanji, and the Chess Army).
Whole Cake Island ArcEdit
Counter joined Big Mom's army to avenge his younger brother after he was defeated by Monkey D. Luffy. He and Cadenza personally attacked Luffy with Cream Punch while he was distracted by Charlotte Mont-d'Or, defeating him. When Luffy refused to move, Counter knocked him out before taking him captive.
Later, Luffy escaped from his prison cell and while rampaging throughout the chateau, he strangled Counter while demanding Sanji's whereabouts.
As a fatigued and starving Luffy approached the place on the outskirts of Sweet City where he promised to wait for Sanji, Counter surprised him with a sneak attack. Luffy fought back, but his attacks were ineffective. After knocking Luffy to the ground, Counter stomped on him. When Luffy got back on his feet, Counter continuously pummeled him mercilessly and smashed him into the ground. Upon seeing Luffy on his feet, Counter prepared to finish him off. As he charged towards Luffy and punched him in the face, Luffy mustered enough strength to stand his ground and deliver a punch to Counter's face as well. Counter retaliated and after exchanging a few more blows with Luffy, Counter fell unconscious.

Anime and Manga DifferencesEdit
While racing through the Whole Cake Chateau searching for Sanji, Luffy choked Counter in the manga. In the anime, a confrontation between Luffy and Counter in the Whole Cake Chateau was not shown and Luffy choked Cadenza instead. However, Counter has another confrontation with Luffy after the latter left Sweet City to return to the place where he promised to wait for Sanji. Despite being hungry and weakened, Luffy managed to defeat Counter after a harsh struggle.
- He is often seen with a small thin girl on his shoulder.
- Counter is likely named after a counter-melody, a sequence of notes played simultaneously with the main melody. He shares this music-themed naming with his fellow quintuplets.
- He may also be named after a countertop, a common feature of a kitchen, corresponding with many of his siblings' food-themed names.
- The number of hair groups he has matches his position as part of quintuplets, with Opera having zero, him having one, Cadenza having two, and Cabaletta having three.
