Eiichiro Oda’s bestselling manga series of all time, ONE PIECE, is heading to Netflix Aug. 31 for its first-ever live-action adaptation. Get to know the Straw Hat Pirates and their sworn enemies of the East Blue below.
Iñaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy
Luffy is captain of the Straw Hat pirates and a big dreamer. As a child, Luffy ate the Devil Fruit known as the Gum-Gum Fruit, which granted him the ability to stretch his body like rubber. While the fruit gave him this extraordinary power, the sea can take it away and sink him.
Emily Rudd as Nami
Nami is a fiercely independent thief who never allows herself to get close to anyone. She’s an expert navigator and cartographer whose weapon of choice is a Bo Staff.
Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro
Known as the deadly “Pirate Hunter,” Roronoa Zoro dreams of one day becoming the world’s greatest swordsman wielding his signature trio of swords.
Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp
Usopp is a born storyteller, even if the tall tales he spins are of pirate adventures he hasn’t been on — yet.
Taz Skylar as Sanji
Sanji is a fashionable and talented chef who fuels his charm and flirtatious ways into his table service. When we meet him, he’s working at the restaurant Baratie under Chef Zeff. Sanji’s greatest dream is to find the All Blue, which is said to be the only place in the world where fish from all four seas — East Blue, West Blue, North Blue, and South Blue — can be found. For the record: He hates oregano and believes everyone in need should be provided with a meal.
Morgan Davies as Koby
Luffy meets Koby as an insecure and reluctant member of Alvida’s pirate crew on her ship, Miss Love Duck.
Even though it puts Luffy in direct conflict with his dream of becoming the King of the Pirates, he encourages Koby to pursue his dream of becoming part of the Marines (the organization that patrols the seas to rid them of pirates).
Aidan Scott as Helmeppo
Helmeppo is the vain, inept, and spoiled son of Captain “Axe Hand” Morgan.
Vincent Regan as Vice Admiral Garp
Vice Admiral Garp is legendary in the Marines — he’s the man who captured the notorious King of the Pirates, Gold Roger. Garp is very invested in trying to dissuade Luffy from chasing his pirate dreams and begins mentoring Koby through his journey as a Marine.
Langley Kirkwood as Captain “Axe Hand” Morgan
Captain “Axe Hand” Morgan is in charge of the Marine base. He has a metal prosthetic in place of his lower jaw and an axe for a hand. Every part of his body is a weapon and he uses it to create fear, especially in his son, Helmeppo.
Craig Fairbrass as Zeff
Chef Zeff is a former great and fearsome pirate known for the red stain of blood on his boots. He now runs Baratie, the floating restaurant in the sea. He is a surrogate father to Sanji.
Peter Gadiot as Shanks
Shanks is a mentor to Luffy and the beloved leader of the Red Haired crew of pirates. He taught Luffy that being a pirate is more than just fighting and taking.
Ilia Isorelýs Paulino as Alvida
Alvida is a fearsome pirate who is murderous, ruthless, and obsessed with her looks. She will do anything to increase her bounty and prove she is someone to be reckoned with.
Jeff Ward as Buggy The Clown
As a young pirate, Buggy ate the Devil Fruit known as the Chop-Chop Fruit, and can now dismantle his body into pieces. Like Luffy, he was given these powers after eating this fruit, but the sea can take them away. He’s unhinged, maniacal — and don’t talk to him about his nose.
Alexander Maniatis as Klahadore
We meet Klahadore when Usopp pays a visit to his old friend Kaya (Celeste Loots). Klahadore is Kaya’s butler, who’s looked after her since her parents died.
Mckinley BelcherIII as Arlong
Arlong is half-human, half-sawfish shark. He’s one of the most feared pirates of the East Blue. He hates humans and will do whatever it takes to find the One Piece.
Steven Ward as Dracule Mihawk
Dracule Mihawk is one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea and deadlier with a blade than anyone else on the high seas.
