"Mohji" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.

Mohji the Beast Tamer is a pirate and the first mate of the Buggy Pirates and a member of the Buggy and Alvida Alliance. He is a pet tamer, usually accompanied by his pet lion Richie.[2] Due to his actions, he can be considered the secondary antagonist of the Orange Town Arc.


Every time Mohji appears in the series for an arc, his hairstyle changes. During the Orange Town Arc, his hair was shaped like a teddy bear. The Loguetown Arc had him wearing a pink helmet with bunny ears sticking out, and when the group makes it into the Grand Line, his hair is shaped like a lion's mane. In the Impel Down Arc, his hairstyle causes him to resemble a ram, somewhat similar to Merry.

After the time skip Mohji, along with his pet Richie, had apparently gained much weight where Mohji now has a very plump appearance.[4]

Mohji Boss Luffy Historical Special


Mohji is quite pompous and, at times, silly. He has also displayed a strong rivalry with Cabaji, Buggy's second mate, during the Buggy mini-arc. He tends to treat Richie better than most other people and adores the big lion. He even takes it offensively when Richie is used as a shield by Cabaji against Luffy, Zoro and Nami.[5]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Mohji claims to have the ability to control any animal he wishes. However, he was not able to tame Chouchou, who bit Mohji when he tried. He has yet to prove his ability in the series outside of his pet, a lion named Richie (who seems to have an emphatic link with him). Mohji usually opts to use him in battle rather than fight himself. He is, however, fast and agile, and very skilled with a whip.

  • Special Sideshow: He swings his whip around his opponent's waist before making them spin around by tugging on the whip. This was shown in his fight against Cabaji.[6]


Orange Town ArcEdit

Luffy Knocks Out Mohji

Luffy defeats Mohji.

In his first appearance, Mohji was sent by Buggy to capture Roronoa Zoro. Upon encounting Luffy, he became overzealous and ordered Richie to attack him in the iron cage. The cage was easily smashed and Luffy was smacked through a building. However, Luffy was uninjured due to his rubber man status.[7] Upon seeing Chouchou stand up against the lion to protect his treasure, the pet store Mohji burned down, Luffy challenged Mohji and Richie to a duel. He used his Gomu Gomu no Hammer to spin Richie around and slam him into the ground and knocked him out. Mohji escaped, without his loyal guardian.[8] Upon returning to Buggy, he barely had enough time to warn him about Luffy being a Devil Fruit user before Luffy and his crew arrived to challenge Buggy.[9]

Buggy's Crew Adventure ChroniclesEdit

After Buggy's defeat, Mohji and Cabaji fought over leadership of the group.[10] They were equally matched, and fought for several hours.[11] The battle ended when a sleep-walking Richie knocked them both unconscious,[12] taking over leadership himself.[13] However, Richie and the pirates were kidnapped by a cannibalistic group, the Kumate Tribe.[14] They were saved by Buggy, Alvida, Mohji, and Cabaji.[15]

Loguetown ArcEdit

Mohji later participated in the attack on Loguetown. It was his job to burn down the Straw Hat's boat,[16] which he failed to do as soon as it started to rain. Usopp found him and Richie. Before Mohji could do anything, he slipped and bump his head on the ship's hull, getting knocked out. After the Straw Hat pirates escaped, he reunited with his crew.[17]

Jaya ArcEdit

Much later, Mohji reappeared with the group as they travel in the Grand Line. He is seen wandering in a cave with Buggy and Cabaji, Buggy believing it to hold the treasure of Captain John, only to find a crew of diggers working in it. He is later seen aboard the ship having a party when a mysterious man named Ace appears, having heard the party and smelled the good food.[18]

Summit War SagaEdit

Impel Down ArcEdit

Mohji is seen again with Alvida and the rest of Buggy Pirates, pleading with Alvida to go to Impel Down to rescue Buggy. However, he and the rest of the crew eventually decide to proceed on while honoring Buggy's death after Alvida tells them to rescue Buggy by themselves, and notes they will die trying.[19]

Post-War ArcEdit

After Buggy is reunited with his crew, Mohji is seen crying happily over the reunion, lying that he and Cabaji never gave up on him, and then was seen introducing himself to the Impel Down prisoners along with Cabaji.[20]

Post TimeskipEdit

Since Buggy became a member of the Shichibukai,[21] Cabaji along with the rest of Buggy's crew were pardoned.

Zou ArcEdit

Buggy Showing Off as His Crew Feasts

Buggy's dispatch company celebrates Donquixote Doflamingo's defeat.

Mohji made his first appearance after the timeskip at Karai Bari Island at Buggy's Delivery, where he was seen sitting behind Buggy at a feast with Richie, Cabaji, Alvida, and Galdino as they celebrated the defeat of Donquixote Doflamingo and the positive effect it had on their business. However, Mohji spoiled the mood when he revealed that the New Giant Warrior Pirates had quit the dispatch company to align themselves under the flag of the Straw Hat Pirates.[22]

Early Mohji

Some of Oda's early designs for Mohji.

In Oda's early sketches of Mohji, Mohji was depicted having completely different designs than his final one. One sketch depicted him as having a panda theme and another depicted him as having a lion theme. While both designs were scrapped because they looked too ordinary at the time, the lion themed one however got included in the manga in Mohji's third appearance.[23]
