Salchow resembles a male figure skater with a cowboy theme. He is unshaven and wears blue eyeshadow.
While Salchow has a very lovey dovey relationship with his wife, some of his in-laws do not exactly like him. Campacino does not like to be addressed by Salchow as big brother out of respect while they are working. Lil also does not like him as it seems that Arbell pays more attention to him than to her younger sister. While some of his in-law's do not seem to like him, he seems to care for them as shown when he cried tears of joy when Arbell and Lil make up. He also seems to care for Don Accino, as he was happily celebrating his birthday and seems to have great respect for him.
Abilities and PowersEdit
Salchow's fighting style revolves around figure skating, in which he can combine with his wife's and they make a great combination.
- Jump and Kick: An ability performed by either Arbell or Salchow on their own where they literally jump in the air and kick the enemy.
- Love Throw: A combo attack performed with his wife as he lifts her up and spins her around at an inhuman rate and then throw her at the enemy feet first so she does a spin kick at the enemy with her skating boots on.
- High Jump Dai Kaiten: Ultra Love Throw: It is said that it is their supreme attack. First, Salchow and Arbell catch by their hands and start to spin at great speed. Then both of them, joined by the hands, jump towards the enemy, transforming into a dangerous wheel-like projectile.
Ice Hunter ArcEdit
He is the first of the Accino family to confront the Straw Hats, albeit indirectly. He used "trap kamome"-rafts with marine sails and holographic projections of battleships, to steer them into Hyokaido. He later confronts the Straw Hats' along with Arbell, Lil, and Hockera, but Franky just uses a Coup de Burst to escape. Later, he and his wife take on Sanji and Usopp in battle, mostly by skating around them and then throwing Arbell at Sanji and rammed her skates into his face. When Arbell was knocked out by Usopp's Kabuto, he was seriously enraged.
He charges against Usopp, but he slips and shoots him with Kabuto as well. He and his wife, however, get back together and perform their special attack twice, first time hurting Usopp, but then Sanji manages to kick Salchow out. After a long battle, he and his wife reveal that they skated a circle in the ice around Usopp and Sanji, the entire time and then stomp on the ice and make both fall into the penguin infested water, forcing them to give up. They later "fish" them out. They then throw the captured crew into an ice prison, in order to freeze them. They are, however, called away, because of Don Accino's burst of anger. They try to calm him down, but to no avail and call in for Brindo's and Campacino's help. When Luffy arrives in Lovely Land, he, Arbell, Campacino and Brindo fight him, but they are then assaulted by Sanji. While they use the same tactic on him as before (using Arbell to distract him), Nami steps in and finishes Arbell with her Thunder Bolt tempo. Salchow is shocked by his wife being out cold, however Sanji comes up and beat him over her.
