Suleiman's Manga Color Scheme

Suleiman's color scheme in the manga.

Suleiman has light-gold shaggy hair under a large black hat (decorated with a white skull and gold wings in the anime, mostly gold-colored with white accents in the manga), which covers one of his sky blue colored eyes; it also has three bird-feathers. He wears a large black coat with a pointed collar, a pair of military medals, a pair of white pants and a pair of black heeled boots.[1] He has a scar that goes across the center of his face, which somewhat resembles Crocodile's scar.


He appears to be a stoic yet patriotic man. Despite being an exiled war criminal, he claimed that he loves his country, even wearing his naval uniform despite his exile severing his connection to his home.[3]

Unlike most of the people who were freed by Sugar's curse, Suleiman isn't shown to be swayed by greed as he chose to fight the Donquixote Pirates instead of helping them.

Abilities and PowersEdit

He was seen holding a sword,[1] but it is not known how proficient he is in using it. However, it can be assumed he is quite skilled since he managed to gain his epithet by decapitating people and he is confident enough to join the competition for the Mera Mera no Mi.

In the anime, Suleiman is shown to be an extremely fast and powerful swordsman as he even managed to evade Rebecca's "Back to Water Dance". Suleiman also shown his power when he disarmed Rebecca and later defeated Acilia effortlessly.



Sometime in the past he was involved in the "Sea Battle of Dias" (ディアス海戦 Diasu Kaisen?, "Dias Naval Battle" in the Viz Manga) and became a war criminal.[1] After he was exiled from his country, he roamed throughout the underworld.[3]

Dressrosa ArcEdit

Suleiman entered the Corrida Colosseum to compete for the Mera Mera no Mi. For the battle royale, he was placed in Block D.[4]

As Block D's battle royale began, Suleiman was seen preparing to fight.[5]

Suleiman later fought against Rebecca. He claimed that he did everything for his country and loved his homeland. He then asked her how she could cope living in a country where she is despised so much.[3]

Hakuba Defeats Block D Competitors

Suleiman and the rest of Block D are defeated by Hakuba.

Rebecca continued to evade Suleiman's attacks, but their fight was interrupted when Cavendish suddenly stood between them. They then saw Cavendish suddenly fall asleep and when several gladiators took the opportunity to attack him, his alter-ego, Hakuba, took control and proceeded to strike down all the remaining fighters in Block D. Suleiman fell victim to his attack and laid defeated on the arena.[6]

Suleiman was later transformed into a toy and forced to work in the underground trade port. When Sugar's curse broke, the toys returned to their original forms. Suleiman was among the former slaves praising Usopp for freeing them.[7]

After Doflamingo trapped Dressrosa in his "Birdcage", Suleiman and the other colosseum fighters escaped to the surface through an opening created by Pica when he rearranged the land with his ability.[8]

When he found Luffy, Zoro, and Law, Suleiman stated that he will defeat Doflamingo. Therefore, he joined forces with Luffy's group alongside the Chinjao Family, Hajrudin, Ideo, Fighting Bull, Blue Gilly, Cavendish, Abdullah, Jeet, Orlumbus, Elizabello II, and Dagama. When some of the former toys came for the heads of Luffy, Zoro, and Law, Suleiman and the allied colosseum fighters fought them off. They later marched towards the royal palace and began to battle against Pica.[9]

When Pica attacked, Chinjao and Elizabello II shattered his stone hand, enabling the group to move forward. Suleiman and the other allied fighters fought through Doflamingo's troops. Pica then attacked with his other arm, causing Suleiman and some of the other allies to fall back. After avoiding Pica's strike, they were surprised to see Luffy, Zoro, Law, Abdullah, Jeet, and Fighting Bull climbing on Pica's arm. They were also amazed when Luffy shattered Pica's stone head. When Pica's giant stone body stopped moving, Suleiman and his allies continued on with their assault.[10]

With Zoro fighting Pica and Sabo fighting the Marines, the colosseum fighters charged up the new King's Plateau and easily defeated the Donquixote Pirates' troops standing in their way.[11]

Dellinger stabs Suleiman

On the second level, Dellinger confronted Suleiman and began to mock him. As Suleiman stood, watching the strange pirate, Dellinger launched himself at Suleiman, knocking him down and impaling him with his horns.[12]

During the final phase of Doflamingo's game, Suleiman and the injured gladiators were healed by Mansherry. They later defeated the remaining Donquixote Pirates on the New King's Plateau to help the citizens flee from the shrinking Birdcage.[13]

With Bartolomeo's barrier, the gladiators worked together to push the Birdcage back just long enough for Luffy to defeat Doflamingo. After the Donquixote Pirates' downfall and the collapse of the Birdcage, the gladiators rested at the palace.

Three days after Doflamingo's defeat, Suleiman and the other gladiators prepared to assist the Straw Hats' escape from Dressrosa when the Marines were mobilized to pursue them.[14]

As the Straw Hats made their way to the eastern port, Suleiman and his fellow gladiators stood in the way of the Marines that were chasing after them.[15]

The fighters later gathered at the eastern port, preparing to fight Issho. When Issho prepared to attack them with all the rubble from Dressrosa, the fighters quickly fled to the escape ship.[16]
