Dorry is a well-built giant with a long beard. He generally dresses in a viking attire with a helmet that goes over his eyes. He is so large that Luffy can fit in the palm of his hand. He is 160 years old, which means that he is a giant in the prime of his life.
Dorry is a good-natured giant, however, his pride can sometimes get the best of him. He is a firm believer of the customs of fighting from his homeland and follows them with much honor. He would follow these even if he were severely wounded.
Like many characters in One Piece, Dorry has a unique laugh, starting his with "Gegya" (i.e. Gegyagyagyagya!).
Dorry is Brogy's best friend. However because of the argument they had 100 years ago, they were engaged in a life and death battle against each other as per their homeland's customs. Despite this however, they are still the best of friends and deeply respect each other. Dorry and Brogy's competitive relationship with one another is comparable to that of Zoro and Sanji.
Dorry instantly struck up a friendship with Luffy as well, after Luffy was eaten by a dinosaur and Dorry saved him. They had a relationship as strong as that of two old friends.
Abilities and PowersEdit
As a Giant, Dorry has great strength and endurance. He is considered much stronger than average giants.
Dorry carried a Viking-style longsword named Terry Sword, which he used in fights against Brogy (before it was destroyed), and wielded a shield upon his arm.
Little Garden ArcEdit
His life as a pirate ended when he entered a contest of honor with his fellow captain Brogy over the size of the fish the two caught. It was revealed in a flashback that a little girl had asked which one had been bigger. Brogy and Dorry went to the isolated island of Little Garden to settle the feud with a duel, and have been doing so for the past 100 years.
When the Straw Hat Pirates came to the island, Dorry hung out with Luffy, Vivi, and Carue. When he was drinking rum that was given to him, an explosion occurred inside his stomach. He believe the bomb was placed there by the Straw Hats and began to attack Luffy. However, Luffy was able to subdue the giant and he accepted the Straw Hats were not responsible for the sabotage. The volcano erupted and he was barely able to stand, yet, he trudged forward to battle Brogy despite his new bomb induced injuries, but not before trapping Luffy under the skeleton of a giant Sea King, in order to prevent him from interfering. With a little extra sabotage of Mr. 3, Dorry lost the duel.
Presumed dead at first, Dorry regained consciousness some time after the battle with Mr. 3 and he and Brogy embraced, both glad to be alive. Dorry believed he survived the blow as their weapons have grown old and too weak to cause serious harm. Dorry and Brogy then gave the Straw Hats a special farewell by blasting them through a legendary giant fish that blocked their way.
Two Years LaterEdit
Dorry is still dueling it out with Brogy on Little Garden with no end in sight. Newspapers are seen flying in the background, suggesting that they have read about the Straw Hats' return.
Translation and Dub IssuesEdit
So far, Oda has provided two versions of his name: Dorry was seen in the manga and later Dorey appeared in the data books.
Due to certain reasons, the entire Little Garden Arc was completely skipped in the 4Kids English dub. This created a plot hole as Dorry and Brogy's appearance not only introduced the concept of giants to the entire story, but it was relevant in certain later events concerning Oimo and Kashi.
Also, Dorry was also mistranslated as Dorry the Green Giant, when in fact he is the Blue. This stems from the fact that the kanji used for the word "Blue" (青) can also be taken to mean "Green", depending on the context.
