"Pin Joker" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.
|Romanized Name:||Bin Jōkā|
|Japanese VA:||Hideyuki Tanaka|
Pin Joker has long black hair tied up in a ponytail and a stitched scar across his face. He has red marking on the right side of his face, and a tear-like design on the left. He also wears a strapped vest over purple clothes that has diamond design, with a yellow furred collar. Overall, he resembles a court jester.
Pin Joker is a swordsman of little honor, as he attacks Roronoa Zoro while the latter is trapped holding a descending ceiling, as well as putting poison gas into his weapons to increase potency. He seems angry when Zoro forgets him.
A running gag to his character is that he is often trying to quote Chinese proverbs, but always says them incorrectly (making them puns in Japanese) and is then corrected by the other characters, which annoys Pin Joker to no end.
Abilities and PowersEdit
Pin Joker is the Trump Siblings' primary swordsman, using a saber. The feathers on his costume also have Skunk One's gas in them, which Pin Joker uses to paralyze his enemies before he strikes them down.
- Hari Hari Ken (ハリハリ剣 Hari Hari Ken?, literally meaning "Needle Needle Sting"): Pin Joker sends out a barrage of feathers containing Skunk One's Devil Gas.
He apparently knows Zoro as Zoro gave him a scar across his face in the past prior to joining the Straw Hats. He captures Zoro once he and Luffy enter the Trump Castle and get caught in one of their traps. He later fights Zoro in the climax of the film where he is quickly defeated once Zoro gets his swords back.

- Like all the other Trump Siblings, Pin Joker is based on an animal and a card, a kiwi and the card Joker. Pin Joker's feather attire around his neck and arms refers to the plumage of the kiwi bird and the long thin fencing sword mimics the shape of the kiwi's beak.
- Both he and Donquixote Doflamingo are voiced by the same voice actor. Oddly, both have the name 'Joker' and use a bird as animal theme.
