This page lists all animal species encountered in the Dressrosa Saga.
- Further information: Island Whale
A large group (gam) of Island Whales made an appearance when the Straw Hats floated from Fishman Island to the New World. Their movement was enough to create a current which disturbed the "White Strom".
The spotted sharks are a big species of shark which live in the waters of the New World. The sharks are about ten times bigger than a human and their bodies are covered in spots. The sharks make an appearance in Punk Hazard when Luffy, Usopp, Zoro and Robin are being shot at by the centaurs while crossing the lake located in the center of the island and are capsized. Zoro was pulled down by one of the sharks.
The first dragon was capable of breathing fire, possessed immense strength and extremely durable, hot skin. With its massive wings, it was capable of flight. It was so strong that its teeth were not even dented by Zoro's swords and even Luffy's Gomu Gomu no Mi: Gear Second attack was barely enough to make it flinch. Its breath wasn't simple fire as it was so powerful that it melted stone blocks and cracked the ground itself.
Later, Monet stated that the dragon belonged to Dr. Vegapunk and according to Brownbeard, it was artificially made to protect Punk Hazard and was capable of adapting to any weather environment. One of the World Nobles took a liking to the dragon and gave it a name.
Vegapunk's Dragon (Small Size) (ベガパンクの竜 (ドラゴン) - 小型 Begapanku no Doragon - Kogata?) is the second model of dragon developed. It seems to be really fierce, but is very cowardly against strong opponents.
It is able to breathe fire just as the first model can, but it is also much faster, able to easily dodge bullets and with a joint force enough to bite and chew steel. It also seems to be able to perceive enemies, fleeing away when it noticed Vergo's arrival.
It first appears during Caesar Clown's biological weapon demonstration, where his subordinates were using it to pull a sled, but it flew away upon seeing Smiley. It was later captured by Sanji and brought in the Research Institute, where the effects of the sedative vanished and it started attacking the G-5 Marines. When Vergo arrived, it flew away and fought with Nami, Usopp, Nico Robin, Brook, and Kin'emon who defeated it.
The seas surrounding Dressrosa are primarily home to the deadly Fighting Fish species, however on the island itself live mostly simple domestic animals like ordinary dogs, cats and birds. After the Toys were freed from Sugar's power, many of them were revealed to be wild and savage animals that went on a rampage. Most the animals-turned-toys were snakes, gorillas, lions and other vicious animals.
Fighting Fish (闘魚 Tōgyo?) are large black fish notorious for their ferocity. They have the head of a bull with fangs and a crazed look in their red and yellow eyes. These fishes are related to the Giant Goldfish.
They came to the waters between Dressrosa and Green Bit about two centuries ago and made travel impossible, capsizing ships that come close. They travel in large schools in the waters between Dressrosa and Green Bit. While lacking any natural predators, they have been known to be used as a food source by the Dwarves. Reinforcing the bridge between Green Bit and Dressrosa with iron did not make any difference. Since their arrival, nobody who has crossed the bridge has been known to return. The anime shows that despite their ferocity, they are capable of showing fear as the ones around Green Bit are afraid of Donquixote Doflamingo and fled in terror when a school of them attacking the Thousand Sunny saw the Shichibukai approaching the ship.
Little Fighting FishEdit
Little Fighting Fish (リトル闘魚 Ritoru Tōgyo?) are a smaller, but still rather large, variant of the fighting fish. They are kept in the pool surrounding the ring of the Corrida Colosseum as a disqualification penalty for anyone who falls out of the ring.
Boss Class Fighting FishEdit
Boss Class Fighting Fish (BOSS（ボス）クラス闘魚 Bosu Kurasu Tōgyo?) are deadlier than little Fighting Fish, though still a good bit smaller than the wild ones found around Green Bit, and can leap out of the water to reach contestants within the ring. One of each school were brought in for the battle royale between the four block winners and Diamante. Each one has a number tattooed on their left temple; the one with an "01" tattoo carries a chest with the Mera Mera no Mi inside on its back. They are sensitive to the smell of blood and one with an "06" tattoo charged at some bleeding gladiators on the bridge section, crushing the bridge and knocking them into the pool.
Green Bit, while uninhabited by humans, is home to various wild animals, including:
Yellow Great Rhinoceros BeetleEdit
Yellow Great Rhinoceros Beetles (山吹オオカブトムシ Yamabuki Ō-Kabutomushi?, Golden Rhinoceros Beetle in the Viz manga) are large beetles used by the dwarves as mounts to fly from place to place. The Tontatta Kingdom used these to fly from Green Bit to Dressrosa. The ones used by the army have "TT-Air Force" written on their sides. They are used by the Yellow Kabu squad, commanded by Kabu, a dwarf with a Rhinoceros Beetle Zoan Devil Fruit. The mounts have helmets with the letter "K" (for Kabu) followed by a number.
Pink Hornets (桃色スズメバチ Momoiro Suzumebachi?, Peach-Colored Hornets in the Viz manga) are large hornets that live on Green Bit, which the dwarves tamed. The dwarves use these as aircraft to fly from place to place. They are used by the Pink Bee squad, commanded by Bian, a dwarf with a Hornet Zoan Devil Fruit. Each hornet wears a black helmet with the letter "B" on it, followed by a number.
The Linear Foxes (リニアフォックス Rinia Fokkusu?, High-Speed Fox in the Viz manga) are a species of fox which has been domesticated by the dwarves of the Tontatta Kingdom.
They are big enough for average sized humans (Robin and Usopp) to ride on. These foxes have large puffy tails, which are said to be very soft, and beautiful to look at. Their fur is blue on the top of their bodies, and their underbellies are white, along with part of their tail and around their eyes. Each of the foxes sports an orange cap which reads "Express" and has a fox tail on it. They also have a sign on their sides, saying which number fox they are.
A Super Penguin (超ペンギン Chō Pengin?) was Kuzan's mode of transportation when he came to Punk Hazard, in particular, the super penguin named Camel. It is said to be good at treading water. Its coloration resembles real-life banded penguins.
It may be a play on real-life seahorses.
