"Urouge" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.

Urouge[5], also known as Mad Monk, is a pirate who hails from a sky island and is the captain of the Fallen Monk Pirates[2]. He is one of twelve pirates who are referred to as the "Worst Generation" (formerly known as the "Eleven Supernovas"[6]).


Urouge is abundant in both height and width. His face somewhat resembles a smiling totem mask as he is nearly always seen grinning, even when he is unhappy; the only moments he is not seen smiling was when he was approaching Raijin Island, when he was confounded by the island spewing lightning nonstop, and again when he gives final benedictions to Kaido's jumping off a sky island. Apart from his smile, he also has what appears to be a stitched-up scar vertically descending over, and falling short just above his left eye. On his chin he has a prominent, jet-black, and scruffy beard that extends upwards to the sides of his jaw and then converges with his equally-dark side-burns. He seems to sport the short and clean-cut sort of hairstyle generally sported by monks. He also has black tattoos going down his shoulders that somewhat resemble fire.[1]

He dresses in similar robes to Divine Soldiers underneath the khaki robes he wears (which is also worn by the rest of his crew), which includes the white full-bodied garment with severed sleeves, that exposes tattoos patterned like flames on both biceps. He wears a pair of gold earrings, black gloves and a rather large red bead necklace. He also has a pair of large wings growing out from the middle of his back.[1]

As a child, Urouge had the hairstyle and wings of the Skypieans', but as an adult his wings are more like the Birka natives.[7]

Urouge's most prominent personality trait is that he is almost always smiling. Even when defeated or when believing himself to be near death he will still have a smile on his face, such as when he was he was heavily wounded by a Pacifista. The only times he has not been seen smiling are when his crew approached Raijin Island and when he prayed for Kaido.

From what has been shown of Urouge so far he can be considered a brave man, as he was not afraid of fighting people with higher bounties than him, such as Killer. Although it is possible that he did not know his bounty or he knew that Killer had a high bounty because he notoriously attacks civilians. In spite of this though, he quit the battle when X Drake jumped in to halt the fight. Despite being brave he is not blind to danger either, for when he faced a Pacifista (who he believed was the real Kuma) and Kizaru at the same time, he frustratingly wondered if that was his end. However, even when facing death, he could still laugh at what he believed was a joke, made by Basil Hawkins, about his fate.

Urouge seems to be respectful toward people's plights, as he did not stop Kaido when the Yonko attempted to commit suicide and instead prayed.[8]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Muscular Urouge

Urouge increasing his muscle mass.

As one of the Worst Generation, Urouge is a powerful pirate, having traversed the Grand Line and reaching the halfway point. He has been shown strong enough to face a fellow Supernova as fast and agile as Killer in a fight (without increasing his muscle mass) before having their fight interrupted by X Drake.

Urouge was strong enough to defeat one of Big Mom's Four Sweet Commanders, who are second only to her, although he was later defeated by another one of her Commanders, Charlotte Cracker.[9] However despite his defeat, Urouge managed to survive and escape.

Devil FruitEdit

Urouge ate a Devil Fruit that allows him to convert damage inflicted onto him into his strength, to the point that even his size can increase.[10] Using this ability he was able to exceed a Pacifista's body size[11] and actually damage its body with punches, although he was still vulnerable to their lasers.[12]


  • Inga Zarashi (因果晒し Inga Zarashi?, literally meaning "Karma Exposure"): After transforming to his gigantic, muscular size, Urouge punches his target multiple times with immense force. This was first seen used against a Pacifista.[13] This is called Karmic Punishment in the Viz Manga, Retribution in the Funimation dub and Karma Exposure in the FUNimation subs.


Urouge's choice of weapon appears to be a large piece of a pillar with a hexagonal base which he uses like a mace to pummel opponents. When not in use, it is mostly seen being carried on his shoulder.


Summit War SagaEdit

Sabaody Archipelago ArcEdit

Urouge Wields His Pillar

He was first seen having a brief brawl with Killer, of the Kid Pirates; and both were stopped by the former-marine-turned-pirate X Drake before either could do further damage.[14]

Urouge was next seen being told by his crew that a World Noble was coming their way. Though he refers to the nobles as "nasty little things," he consents along with the other pirates and civilians to lower themselves to their knees to avoid any trouble.[15] He respected Zoro for standing up and almost trying to kill one of them, while he himself preferred to "sit it off". He also pondered the strength of the Straw Hat Captain, to have such an incredible person as Zoro with such a high bounty serve under him.[16]

When reading of Ace's planned execution, he did not lose his eternal smile but seemed disturbed.[17] When the news of Luffy attacking a World Noble spread, he called the Straw Hats "troublesome" but seemed impressed by their actions.[18]

Urouge vs. Pacifista

Urouge fighting off a Pacifista.

He tried to sneak off to avoid confronting Admiral Kizaru but was attacked by a Pacifista. His strength seemed to prove no match for the cyborg and was thrown into the fight between Kizaru and Basil Hawkins. Upon noticing the Admiral, he began to panic but Hawkins assured him that he does not see death in Urouge's future. X Drake then rushed in to help him, knocking the Pacifista back with a strong kick. Using his devil fruit abilities, Urouge's muscle mass expanded, growing large enough to match the Pacifista in height and muscle mass.[19]

He began to fight back. With his new strength he was able to land powerful blows to the Pacifista causing it enough damage to hold it off. However, just as he began to gain the upper hand it shot a laser beam through his shoulder.[20] With him down, the Pacifista turned its attention towards X Drake to fight. As Urouge rose to get his second wind, Kizaru attacked him from behind, kicking him at the speed of light through three buildings.[21] Urouge was knocked out cold from this attack, severely wounded and bloodied.[22] He was able to escape from the Admiral due to the Straw Hats distracting Kizaru.[23]

Marineford ArcEdit

He was seen watching Ace's execution televised at Sabaody Archipelago, meaning that he managed to escape capture by the Marines.[24]

Post-War ArcEdit

Urouge in the New World

Urouge in the New World.

During the aftermath of the war, he is seen again commenting about Blackbeard.[25]

After the war at Marineford, he and his crew went to the New World. They followed their Log Pose to a dark and stormy island that was spewing lightning, with no way to have a ship docking there. A small boat approached his ship and an old woman appeared and offered the Fallen Monk Pirates some umbrellas.[26]

During the TimeskipEdit

Sometime during the two-year timeskip, Urouge and his crew wandered into Big Mom's territory. Even though Urouge defeated one of the former Four Sweet Commanders named Snack, he was later sought after by Charlotte Cracker while Big Mom called a storm in a fit of rage. Urouge was swiftly defeated by Cracker and forced to flee like the other members of the Worst Generation.[9]

Dressrosa SagaEdit

Dressrosa ArcEdit

Urouge Witnesses Kaido's Suicide Attempt

Urouge witnesses Kaido's suicide attempt.

After Luffy and Law's alliance defeated Doflamingo, Urouge was seen on a certain sky island with his crew, resting after getting injured. His crew then noticed that a mysterious stranger, the Yonko Kaido, had arrived on the island and was about to jump to his death.[27][8]

Urouge questioned Kaido's motives for suicide. He then told him that he would not stop him if he was serious about the suicide, beginning to pray as Kaido jumped.[8]

Support AppearancesEdit


  • Urouge's name was derived from that of real-life 16th century Barbary pirate, Oruç Reis.[28]
  • Urouge may be based on Grigori Rasputin, a Russian faith healer whose nickname was also "Mad Monk". The two also have similar hairstyles, and Rasputin was well known for his womanizing, which is a hobby of Urouge's.
  • Urouge's crew, the Fallen Monk Pirates, is the first pirate crew to come from an unnamed Sky Island to be introduced in the series and the only to be included in the top rookies.
  • Urouge has the lowest bounty of the Supernovas. However, his number of "108" is seen as a mystical number in Eastern religion (similar to Zoro's 108 Pound Cannon attack). In particular the Japanese Buddhist believe that all men must resist 108 temptations before achieving Nirvana. In contrast, he is the oldest and tallest of the Supernovas, at age 47 and 388 cm.
  • In the 5th Japanese Fan Poll, Urouge is ranked as the 48th most popular character in One Piece. Coincidentally, he shares this position with Enel, a fellow Sky Islander.
  • Oda said that Urouge's weapon is an oversized pencil.[29]
  • Urouge's favorite foods are azuki beans and pork, and his least favorite is vegetables.[30]
  • Urouge's hobbies are drinking liquor, engaging in love affairs, and climbing mountains.[31]
