Poppoko is an overweight man, with a large chin, black hair, and a bit of stubble on his chin. He wears a blue and white striped bandana, with a matching short sleeved shirt. His sideburns also come down into a curl.
Typical of his thuggish appearance, Poppoko likes to intimidate Coby due to his low status and timid personality. He fears Alvida, and tried to deny slacking off (which she hates) when she found him doing so. He, like the rest of the crew, calls her beautiful simply to avoid her Iron Mace.
Romance Dawn ArcEdit
Poppoko, along with his crewmates Heppoko, Peppoko and Coby, found Luffy in the barrel he had drifted to their hideout in. The first three intimidated Coby due to his low status as a ship caretaker, and tried to attack Luffy, but were defeated. After that, they reported to Alvida when she attacked them, thinking they were slacking off.
Manga and Anime DifferencesEdit
Although the three appeared in the anime, at least one of them appeared in a different scene to the others. Instead, another miscellaneous crew member replaced him when Luffy's barrel was opened. Poppoko is accidentally knocked out by Luffy when he breaks out of the barrel. He is set flying by Alvida and when Alvida is sent flying by Luffy, she falls on top of him. In the anime, Poppoko later reappears as a member of Gally's crew, but with a different color scheme.
- In the game Ocean's Dream! - Oceans of Dreams, one of the subordinates of the pirate Banzai has a design borrowed from Poppoko, except with a different color scheme.
- ↑ One Piece Manga and Anime — Vol. 1 Chapter 2 (p. 7) and Episode 1, Heppoko, Peppoko and Poppoko appear alongside Coby.
