The Marine Headquarters is the main division of the Marine organization. They are considered "super-elites" among the Marines and are about three ranks apart from the stardard Marine ranks in terms of standards of power.[2] Whereas the Marine Branches are in charge of the four blues, the Headquarters' jurisdiction covers the Grand Line. The Headquarters' base of operations is currently in the New World, near the Red Line.[3] Until two years ago, its base of operations was set in Paradise, on Marineford.[4]

Base of OperationsEdit

Marineford, the former base of operations for Marine Headquarters

Before the timeskip, the base of operations for Marine Headquarters was based at Marineford. However, after the Battle of Marineford, operations were moved to a new location.

New Marine Headquarters BaseEdit

The new Marine Headquarters is set on the island where the G-1 Base was set until two years ago. It is shown to have a mainly western style, in contrast with the ancient Japanese-stylized former one. To mark this difference, the new palace shows also the occidental name of the organization, other then the usual kanji.

Its perimeter is followed by a rectangular-shaped wall, with large towers in the corners, on top of which there are cannons, watchtowers and flags. On the wall is reported the text "MARINE".

In the inside of the wall there's a huge cylindrical-shaped tower with the Marine symbol on it and the kanji for "Marines" (海軍 Kaigun?). On the top of this tower is collocated a structure similar to a Roman colosseum, with three concentric scaled lines of fake arcades where are positioned various cannons.

New Marine Headquarters Pagoda

The pagoda-shaped tower, in the colosseum's inside.

In the inside of the colosseum structure, there's an ancient Japanese-stylized tower, similar to the previous Headquarters, with a huge entrance and a pagoda-shaped upper structure.

From the pagoda's sides, two huge curved ramps starts, ending out of the external wall. On their highest points, two little structures are collocated.

While the location of the island is unknown, there are bubbles in the air, similar to those produced by the Yarukiman Mangrove in Sabaody Archipelago.

Grand Line BranchesEdit

The Marine Headquarters has an unknown number of Branch bases scattered across the Grand Line.

Outside the Grand LineEdit

The Marine Headquarters usually have their hands full with the Grand Line, and thus have no time to deal with problems in the Four Blues.[5] However, should circumstances be severe enough, or if it so happens to be convenient, HQ would send forces to deal with such situations, the little known cases are:

HistoryEdit

Before and during the Battle of MarinefordEdit

Main article: Marineford#History

The Marine Headquarters was collocated on the island of Marineford until two years ago. In its past, it was been setting of various known events, as Shiki's assault and the Battle of Marineford.

Post Battle of MarinefordEdit

After the battle at Marineford, Sakazuki, the new Marine Fleet Admiral decided to change the location of the Marine Headquarters with the G-1 branch, which was in the New World, directly opposing the dominion of the Yonko.[6]

Dressrosa ArcEdit

After Doflamingo's resignation from Shichibukai was made public in the newspapers, a conference about the situation is set in the new Marine Headquarters, under Brannew's overview. The reunion is interrupted by Sakazuki, who said he already sent Fujitora to deal with the Straw Hat Pirates and Trafalgar Law.[7]

TriviaEdit

New Marine Headquarters in Film Z

The New Headquarters as seen in One Piece Film: Z.

  • The One Piece Film: Z, set after the timeskip, shows a different version of the Marine Headquarters base, resembling more a traditional Marine Base with its many towers built into the island and the wave-imitating paint job, giving it a far more militaristic feel, alluding probably to the fact that the new headquarters used to be G-1, and thus was originally a normal Marine fortress base.
