Franky is the shipwright for the Straw Hat Pirates. He is a 36-year-old[5] cyborg from Water 7 and was introduced in the story as the leader of the Franky Family, a group of ship dismantlers.[1] He was originally named "Cutty Flam" until he threw away his original name for his nickname per the request of Iceburg to hide his identity.[9] Franky and his followers were originally introduced as antagonists of the Water 7 Arc against the Straw Hats until circumstances forced them to become allies. At the request of the Franky Family, Franky was allowed to join the Straw Hats to fulfill his dream of creating and riding a ship capable of circum-navigating the world, the Thousand Sunny. He is the eighth member of the Straw Hat crew and the seventh to join Luffy's crew.[10] He is also the second member to have been a former antagonist (the first being Nico Robin). He has a bounty of Beli44,000,000.[2] He is originally from South Blue [11] which he left 32 years ago as a kid of four years of age.

Before the TimeskipEdit

As a direct result of the modifications that he conducted upon himself as well as the years spent as a ship dismantler, bounty hunter, and street thug in Water 7, Franky is a powerfully built man with a height of at least seven feet, making him the second-tallest member of the Straw Hat crew. His forearms are relatively enormous while his biceps are comparably small. He has brightly-colored blue hair and blue star tattoos on his forearms. His choice of clothing usually comprises of a speedo, which causes people to call him a pervert, and an open loud Hawaiian "Aloha" shirt with a large golden chain necklace around his neck.

During his first appearance in the Water 7 Arc, Franky wore a masked costume as a disguise.[12] After discarding this disguise, for the rest of the arc all the way up to the end of the Post-Enies Lobby Arc, he wore a red Hawaiian shirt, with lime green palm trees decorating it.

During the Thriller Bark Arc, Franky wore a yellow shirt with purple trident-like symbols on the sides and a large one on back.

Near the end of the previous arc all the way up to the Sabaody Archipelago Arc, Franky switched to wearing a purple version of his Hawaiian shirt.

During the Straw Hats separation, Franky wore a red coat to protect himself from the cold while on Barujimoa, But after blowing up Vegapunk's laboratory, the skin on his face was burned off, revealing his metal endoskeleton underneath, which he covered up with a tiger skin rug.

He also has a pair of sunglasses, which he usually wears when things start to get serious.

After the TimeskipEdit

Franky's hair is now controllable, and can change different styles instantly by pushing his nose for more than three seconds.

He also has two stitch-mark scars on his torso running down from the back of his neck indicating that he had sewn his skin back on, making it seem more than likely that he has finally fashioned his metal endoskeleton to wrap around his entire body, and not just his visible front (since the initial operation to become BF-36 was done by himself, he could not do work on his own backside).

His shoulders, torso, and arms are also much bigger than before, and with studded hands that look almost robotic in appearance, but he also revealed that inside of his huge arms he still has a set of normal-sized robotic hands. He now appears to be wearing metal rigged suspenders. He has replaced his elbows with large, light blue hinges, his shoulders with a large red ball and socket joint with "BF-37" written on them, and his forearms with large, light blue cubes, with his trademark star tattoo being split by an edge.These new features house upgrades he gave himself during the timeskip.

He now wears a red coconut tree-motived Hawaiian shirt and red speedo. While on Punk Hazard, he was given a large double-breasted black coat by Kin'emon for the cold.
