Ryokugyu is the alias of an admiral in the Marines. His real name is currently unknown.[2]

Appearance

Ryokugyu Anime Infobox

Ryokugyu seen from behind.

Ryokugyu's full appearance is unknown, but he has long, wavy hair and wears a Marine coat.[3] He appears to be much taller than Fujitora, who is himself very tall.[1]

Personality

Ryokugyu is an extremely laid-back and lazy individual who takes everything with a casual attitude, similarly to Kuzan. He did not want to make the effort of following Sakazuki's orders to apprehend Fujitora, and even views eating to be too much work. He appears to enjoy beautiful women, as he talked about having one to feed him.[1]

Like many other people, he has a unique laugh: "Rahahahaha".[1]

Relationships

Marines

Fujitora

Fujitora and Ryokugyu appear to be on good terms, as Ryokugyu disregarded Sakazuki's orders to drive Fujitora out of Mariejois and instead had a friendly conversation with his fellow admiral.[1]

Abilities and Powers

Not much is known about Ryokugyu's abilities, but as a Marine Admiral, Ryokugyu must have at least above-average leadership and coordination skills, and has power over thousands of lower ranked Marines. As an Admiral, Ryokugyu has the authority to enact a Buster Call on any island that is deemed dangerous, and may pass this ability to a lower ranking World Government agent. Ryokugyu has the authority to revoke a Shichibukai's title.

Ryokugyu and Fujitora were stated by Doflamingo to be "true monsters" in terms of power.[2] Ryokugyu has claimed to not have eaten in three years, a feat normally impossible for a human to do, and he still has the strength to move around and presumably fight.[1]

Haki

Further information: Haki

It was stated that all Marines ranked vice admiral or higher possess Haki,[4] so as a higher ranked officer as well as a Marine Admiral, Ryokugyu can also use the ability.

History

Past

Not much is known about Ryokugyu's past, but during the past three years Ryokugyu has completely refrained from eating. Sometime during the two years when the Straw Hats were separated Ryokugyu became an admiral.

Reverie Arc

He was present at Mary Geoise as royals arrived to attend the Reverie. He had a friendly conversation with Fujitora concerning Vegapunk despite receiving orders from Sakazuki to make Fujitora leave.[1]

Translation and Dub Issues

The Japanese kanji 牛 can translate to several words that refer to bovines: bull, cow, cattle, ox, etc.

Trivia

SBS73 4 Ryokugyu

A rendering of Ryokugyu.

  • In SBS Volume 73, a fan provided a joke rendering of Ryokugyu's appearance. Oda found it quite bizarre and noted he had already designed the admiral, mentioning that they were "super-duper cool" and that he couldn't wait to draw them.[5]
  • Fujitora and Ryokugyu's animal aliases (tiger and bull respectively) are the representations of the northeastern quarter where the ogre that Momotarō must kill lives.[6]
