|Romanized Name:||Gasupāde Kaizokudan|
|First Appearance:||Movie 4|
The Gasparde Pirates was a pirate crew that appeared in the fourth One Piece movie Dead End Adventure. They were headed by former Marine General Gasparde, and his right-hand man was Needless. Also, Biera was forced by Gasparde to join as the stoker of the ship, and Shuraiya Bascùd joined as a ruse in order to get his revenge for his parents and sister. Aside from Biera, other laborers are also forced to work in the boiler room. Also, Anaguma, Biera's assistant, tried to become a full-fledged member in order to save her grandpa, and was instructed to kill a pirate in order to be qualified.
The captain of the crew, Gasparde, was a former Marine General who stole the ship he was assigned to and made a break for it with his crew. Together, they won the Dead End Race several times (through cheating) in order to cure boredom. They also ravaged villages and forced citizens to work on board; with some of their known victims being Adelle Bascùd, Biera, and Shuraiya Bascùd.
The crew was defeated when Adelle's "Grandpa" increased the pressure of the boiler room, blowing up the ship while Shuraiya beat the first mate, Needless, and Luffy took down their captain, Gasparde.
It seems that the crew is roughly above average for Grand Line pirates, reaching into the Grand Line and winning in the Dead End Race several times (however every time was due to cheating), and were strong enough to defeat the pirate Willy and his crew of fishmen, but are little more than that, as Shuraiya and Luffy took down the crew themselves. The crew also seemed to be almost entirely reliant on its two main fighters, their captain Gasparde and his right-hand man Needless; with Gasparde being the more powerful of the two due to his powerful Ame Ame no Mi abilities.
Their flag is something of a rarity, as it is a standard Marine flag, crossed out with a red cross. This is a sign of Gasparde's defection from the Marines.
Despite the lower echeleon looking up to their captain due to his reputation and strength, the crew has absolutely no sense of camaraderie, as Gasparde sees his crew as nothing but "underlings", refusing to acknowledge anyone who failed him and literally tossing them away like garbage, while the right-hand man Needless and ruse-member Shuraiya both wanted to kill the captain (though for different reasons). Some members are even forced to join as workers in the boiler room, making this one of the few known crews to forcefully recruit members.
