AppearanceEdit

Sodom and Gomorrah's Faces

Close-up of Sodom and Gomorrah's faces.

As King Bulls, both of them are much larger versions of the normal Yagara Bulls in Water 7: aquatic horses with fins in place of legs, while both wear odd sunglasses that most of the other Franky Family members wear.

Gomorrah is pink with dark red stripes and a green mane and fins. He wears his sunglasses on his forehead.

Sodom is yellow with an orange mane and fins. He wears his sunglasses over his eyes.

PersonalityEdit

Sodom and Gomorrah are both very courageous. They both carried the Franky Family and the Straw Hat Pirates all the way through Enies Lobby until they collapsed because of the attacks they encountered. They are very loyal to the Franky Family due to having been freed from the belly of a Sea King thanks to them.

RelationshipsEdit

Franky FamilyEdit

Sodom and Gomorrah were spared by the Franky Family, since they were too full to eat the young Yagara Bulls. The Franky Family raised the two to be large King Bulls. During the Enies Lobby attack, Franky and the Franky Family fought alongside Sodom and Gomorrah, showing a true bond between them.

Tony Tony ChopperEdit

Sodom and Gomorrah seem to have developed a special relationship with the doctor of the Straw Hat crew, since he was the only one who could understand what they were saying and could translate their wishes and feelings to the rest of their comrades. After the battle, Chopper was also the one to treat their serious wounds, for which they were grateful.

Abilities and PowersEdit

The pair have enough strength to haul small buildings, and are shown capable of tackling the giants Oimo and Kashi. Also, Kokoro mentions the pair are the highest grade of King Bulls. As indicated by the fact they were found inside a Sea King, while they have the ability to strike giants, they do not have the power to tackle these predators.

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

According to Chopper's translations, they were found by the Franky Family in the stomach of a Sea King they were eating. Fortunately, they were too full to eat the sea bulls too. So Sodom and Gomorrah swore loyalty to Franky forever since he saved them from the Sea King.[2]

Water 7 SagaEdit

Enies Lobby ArcEdit

After Luffy gave the Franky Family permission to accompany the Straw Hats to save Franky (who had been taken to Enies Lobby along with Robin), they immediately got Sodom and Gomorrah tied to a boat shaped like a house and then attached it to the Rocket Man, after which Sodom and Gomorrah kept swimming while the Rocket Man charged straight ahead until Yokozuna (testing his strength) caused the train to go off course while also causing the Franky Family to become separated from them.

Before they rejoined the Rocket Man, they found one of the Puffing Tom's cars drifting through towards them where Usopp (as his alter-ego Sogeking) and Sanji were after they were separated from the Sea Train.

Marines Strike Sodom

Upon reaching Enies Lobby, the majority of the Franky Family charges in while the Galley-La foremen Paulie, Peeply Lulu, and Tilestone and Zambai, Kiwi, and Mozu mount Sodom and Gomorrah on treads, the Galley-La foremen riding Sodom and Zambai, Mozu, and Kiwi riding Gomorrah. When they reach the main gate, they are faced against the two giants who guard it, Oimo and Kashi. After a fierce combat, they manage to bring the giants down, open the gate and lead the way for the upcoming Straw Hat pirates. Once the Straw Hats make it in, Paulie helps them onto Sodom (except Sogeking) before he and the other foremen dismount to deal with the Houbantai. The team, riding the giant King Bulls, advances towards the inner section of the island defeating foe after foe. As they go, Sodom tells the Straw Hats how they met the Franky Family, through Chopper's interpretation.

Unfortunately, Sodom is hit by a mortar shell, but tearfully begs the others, through Chopper's interpretation, to go on without him,[3] and Gomorrah is taken down soon afterward by some of the Just Eleven Jurymen. He falls for a short while, but fueled by memories of Franky taking him and Sodom in and looking out for the two, manages to summon up the last of his strength. Gomorrah struggles to get up, and begins recklessly charging deeper into the island. He hits a building along the way, at which point he claims to be blind due to damaging his retina in the battle, as Chopper told the crew through his translation.

Regardless, he charges through the remainder of the island, making it into the courthouse's courtyard before finally passing out from the pain, though he smiles just before losing consciousness at having completed his task.[4]

Later, during the island's evacuation due to Spandam's initiation of the Buster Call, the two of them, presumably unconscious, are scooped up by Oimo and Kashi (the giants having turned against the World Government after learning from Sogeking that they had been lied to), who carry them, the Galley-La foremen, and the Franky Family in their rush to escape Enies Lobby. The giants encounter no difficulty until they reach the front of the island, where they come across three warships led by Vice Admiral Strawberry. With all the guns on board trained on them, the giants are forced to stand their ground until Strawberry orders his men to attack the criminals. They are blown away and thrown off a cliff, seemingly killed. But after the Marines' attention turns towards the Straw Hats, it is revealed that they all survived thanks to Paulie and his ropes. With the front gate no longer guarded, the group climbs back to the island, and Sodom and Gomorrah are loaded onto the Puffing Tom along with the other members of their family and Galley-La. As soon as news reaches them that the Straw Hats had gotten away safely, the Sea Train departs, for a smooth voyage back to Water 7.

Post Enies Lobby ArcEdit

Two days after the destruction of Enies Lobby, both were back on their "feet" and well enough to join the Straw Hat Pirates' victory party. Gomorrah was able to regain his eyesight through Chopper's treatment.

TriviaEdit

  • Their names are the same as the two cities Sodom and Gomorrah, which were famously corrupt. Both cities were destroyed by God in the Bible.
    • Also through the Bible, it is stated that the men of Sodom and Gomorrah were to be given punishment by angels. The punishment that was received was none other than the loss of vision (becoming blind) just as Gomorrah, the king bull, had become.
  • In the Japanese version, Gomorrah's name is pronounced with the emphasis on the first syllable, while in the FUNimation dub, it is pronounced with the emphasis on the second syllable. The latter is the pronunciation of the aforementioned biblical city in English.
