"Pudding Pudding" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.
Pudding Pudding is a man of average height with light purple hair, that he wears in multiple ponytails, a long goatee and has an average build. He wears a standard Marine uniform with a marine coat and a green scarf.
In his youth, he only had one ponytail.
He appears to have full confidence in the abilities of his unit, warning the Arlong Pirates that the 77th Branch is known for its valor. Unfortunately, for him and his men, however, the commodore underestimated the pirate's abilities, possibly out of overconfidence in the marines. He is shown to at least practice a some what refined version of justice; caring for not only the evacuation of the survivors from Arlong's reign, but also destroying the Arlong pirates altogether for their crimes. Unlike Nezumi, he appeared not in the least bit willing to negotiate with Arlong.
He was dispatched to Arlong Park to evacuate the survivors of Arlong's tyrannical reign. When Pudding Pudding sees the Fishman's base, hubris gets the better of the commander, and he orders an attack. This provokes Arlong's ire, and the fishman crew make quick work of Pudding Pudding and his ship, sending them to the bottom of the sea in an artificial maelstrom.
It was asked by a fan if Pudding Pudding was modeled after Purin Purin-chan from the 1981 puppet show, "Tales of Purin Purin". Oda confirmed the similarity between the two characters (his older sister liked the show), however, he only remembered the name and hairstyle.
