Top Ten Buggy Pirates part 2

In the last article I looked at the “Top Ten” coolest/best pirates in the Buggy crew that we knew something about.  This time I’d like to focus some attention on the “Notable Nobodys” who just basically fill space or serve some minor role.  We don’t know much about these guys but if you have ideas for them why not leave a suggestion in the comments.

Crescent

Crescent

  1. Crescent: My name for this guy is Crescent because of the crescent shaped tatto on his face.  This guy reminds me of a pirate who would have fit into the Crescent Moon Pirates from an earlier version of One Piece called Romance Dawn.
    PopeyePopeye
  2. Popeye:  Although he doesn’t have the famous Popeye forearms he does have the chin for it.  If this guy just ate his spinach I’d like to see he show up again sometime.

    Snake Eyes

  3. Snake-Eyes: This guy just looks creepy to me.  I wish he was an actual character.  He seems like he could be rather sly.

    Big Lips

  4. Big Lips: With big painted lips like this guy it’s appropriate that he is on a circus or clown crew but there is potential for controversy if he is supposed to be a “Black Face”.  This would be why 4Kids specifically changed his skin tone to help avoid potential trouble.

    Chimp-Chump

  5. Chimp-Chump:  Buggy’s crew has a bunch of guys with some kind of animal theme to them but this is the only guy I know of who actually has a monkey face.  Seriously it’s a monkey wearing a flower print shirt. That’s just awesome.

    Hippo Face

  6. Hippo Face: You see this is more like the animal theme I mentioned earlier.  With his big hippo teeth this guy is personally killed by Buggy using his devil fruit ability and a cannon blast.  Good Riddance.

    Snake-Hat

    Snake-Hat

  7. Snake Hat:  It appears to me that this guy is slowly being swallowed by a large snake.  Slowly of course because the guy has a ridiculously large head.  Hopefully the snake finishes the job and get’s rid of this guy.

    Nerdy the Clown

  8. Nerdy the Clown:  It would be forgivable if you read One Piece and never noticed this Steve Erkel looking villian since he hides in a crowd pretty well.  Once you’ve seen him you have to ask yourself what could this guy possibly do on a pirate ship?  Accounting would be my guess. Perhaps he’s really good at getting wedgies.

    frenches

    French-Stache

  9. French-Stache:  Nearing the bottom of the list is French-Stache who is a pretty basic pirate grunt but with little antennae and a terrible mustache.  However I believe the look on his face is the same you will have after seeing number 10 on this list.

    Special Mention

    Domo-kun

  10. Domo-kun: I know it’s hard to make out from the small picture but it must have been done on purpose.  Really just analyze his picture for a bit.  Imagine that as Luffy walks up to Buggy to punch him out or as Zolo pulls out his swords to finish off Cabaji that one of them looks over to the sidelines and actually sees “that” in the crowd.  They actually exist in the same world at the same time.  I don’t have a nickname for him but I am guessing that he has some relation to Gatherine the waitress from Enies Lobby.  Very rarely would you find something so hideous in a comic or any other work for that matter but just as Oda has absolutely amazing designs like you won’t find anywhere else he can also plumb the depths of horrendous designs and sneak them in as well.  You have to admire that about him.  EDIT :  It seems this guy isn’t just a notable nobody but actually a hidden character that has made previous appearances in Oda’s work.  Check out this SBS to learn more.

    The Acrobatic Fuwas

    The Acrobatic Fuwas

  11. Special Mention: The Acrobatic Fuwas are not in and of themselves crappy designs but I would like to point them out as being good examples of Buggy’s general crew.  With jester caps, neck frills and animal caps these guys are stereotypical grunts that you’ll see filling the background over and again.  Later when we see Buggy’s crew these will be their general look with just an updated drawing style.
