Vasco Shot,[5] known as the "Heavy Drinker", was one of the legendary criminals who was given a life sentence in Level 6 of Impel Down.[6] He was freed by Marshall D. Teach and is currently a member of his crew.[7]

He is currently one of the Ten Titanic Captains, and the captain of the Eighth Ship of the Blackbeard Pirates.[8]


Vasco Shot Anime Concept Art

Vasco Shot's concept art from the anime

Vasco Shot is a very large, round man. Of all the Blackbeard Pirates, his size is second only to Sanjuan Wolf. He is first seen wearing the said prison's standard inmate attire of white and black horizontal stripes. He has a very long nose and smiles drunkenly with his tongue sticking out. Strangely, it appears his nose is placed higher on his face than his eyes. He also has a rather large forehead and what appears to be a jester's hat on his head. On the sides of his neck, he has two sets of three ring piercings.

True to his moniker, he is also seen chugging on a large gourd of liquor upon his introduction, has a drunken appearance from it, and wanted to invade a town simply because they were low on alcohol. He seems to wear the gourd on his back. It has the kanji "sake" (?) on the bottom section.


He appears to have a very vicious personality as he asked Blackbeard for permission to kill all the people at Marineford regardless of their strength. As his epithet suggests, he is a drunk, and loves to drink all the time, to the point of complaining that they should invade a town only to get more alcohol. It is unknown how much of his drunkenness influences his sober personality. Like many characters in One Piece he has a unique laughter style: "Toputoputoputopu...".

Abilities and PowersEdit

His abilities have not yet been shown, but he was powerful enough to be contained in Level 6 of Impel Down when caught by the World Government.[6] Another testament to his power is the fact that when Blackbeard recruited the Level 6 prisoners, he only chose the strongest ones that could survive when pitted against everyone else in a free-for-all battle. Vasco Shot is shown to have good endurance where he endured a Gura Gura no Mi shock wave from Whitebeard (albeit not a direct hit),[9] and a shock wave from Sengoku in his Daibutsu Form and recovered quickly enough to assist the other Blackbeard Pirates.[10]


He was seen using dual pistols to shoot Whitebeard.[11]



Vasco Shot was once one of the most feared criminals in the world, but was eventually caught by the World Government and was given a life sentence in level 6 of Impel Down where he was effectively erased from history.[6]

Summit War SagaEdit

Impel Down ArcEdit

Shot was mentioned briefly by Emporio Ivankov as part of an explanation of Level 6's true horror to Bentham.[6] Later, under Marshall D. Teach's orders, Shot fought to the death with the inmates of his cell, and being victorious, was given freedom and was recruited into the Blackbeard Pirates.[12]

Marineford ArcEdit

Whitebeard vs Blackbeard Pirates

The Blackbeard Pirates dealing the death blow to Edward Newgate.

He was seen alongside the Blackbeard Pirates and fellow criminals, all of whom were recruited into the crew, and were at Marineford to watch Whitebeard die.[13] He joined the rest of the crew in assaulting Whitebeard, and attacked him with a barrage of bullets.[14]

After Whitebeard dies, Vasco Shot assists his fellow crewmates in covering Whitebeard's body in a black cloth and guards Blackbeard as he starts to demonstrate his powers.[15] He is then, along with the rest of his crew, attacked by a shockwave caused by Sengoku in his Buddha form.[16] After Shanks intervened in the war and ended it, Shot left with his crewmates.[17]

Post-War ArcEdit

The crew makes their move in the New World, taking out Jewelry Bonney in the process.[18] When the crew is seen bickering amongst each other, Shot is complaining that he is running out of alcohol, and that they should next travel to an island with a town. The Blackbeard Pirates' raft was brought close to the point of destruction due to Sanjuan Wolf's size, and they seemingly got in contact with the Marines to trade Jewelry Bonney for a battleship. Van Augur alerts Teach that the battle ship has arrived, but not for trade because Akainu is on board. Knowing that the deal will not happen, the Blackbeard Pirates flee, leaving Bonney and her crew behind to be arrested.[19]

During the TimeskipEdit

One year after the war at Marineford, the Blackbeard Pirates fought against the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates and ultimately won.[20]

The Blackbeard Pirates used their captain's knowledge of Whitebeard's former territory to conquer it. Now that Blackbeard has become a Yonko, the Blackbeard Pirates are hunting down powerful Devil Fruit users in order to absorb their abilities.[21]

Yonko SagaEdit

Zou ArcEdit

The Blackbeard Pirates later attacked Baltigo, the Revolutionary Army's headquarters. Baltigo was destroyed by the time the Marines and Cipher Pol arrived, but the Revolutionary Army was able to escape. However, the Blackbeard Pirates fled after briefly clashing with Cipher Pol.[22][23]
