HistoryEdit

Making their MarkEdit

Kotatsu was a freak show animal who was captured by poachers. Ace freed him from the poacher's trap, and Kotatsu joined the Spade Pirates to travel with Ace as he made a name for himself. He helped fight off a group of bounty hunters, and, when Isuka infiltrated the crew's ship, he surrounded the Marine Ensign alongside his crewmates. However, she easily fended them off. After the confrontation, the crew reached Sabaody Archipelago. While they waited for their ship to be coated, Kotatsu and his crewmates explored the island and secretly read Deuce's adventure diary. Unlike the rest of his crewmates, he did not laugh at his poor writing skills.[3]

After spending time in Sabaody, Kotatsu and the Spade Pirates descended to Fishman Island to begin their journey in the New World.[4]

At one point, the Spade Pirates shipwrecked in Wano Country. The people from Amigasa Village we’re starving to death, so they tied the entire crew and stole all their food. The crew watched the villagers finished their meal and then broke out. Instead of attacking, Ace asked the villagers where he could get them dessert. They stayed in Amigasa Village for a few weeks and became good friends with Tama.
