Top Ten Alabasta Rebels

The other side involved in Alabasta’s Civil War is none other than the rebels lead by Kohza and his childhood gang called the Sand Sand Clan.  Baroque Works of course had its members secretly involved in order to keep the chaos going, but I’ve made sure that none of them made this list.  It wasn’t easy to find many rebels that really stood out from the rest but let’s take a look at some that did.

1. Kohza: While Kohza has a history of fighting with and for the Royal family, he takes a stand against them for the sake of his home country which they rule.  Even as a child he was ready to confront the king when it seemed like he wasn’t doing enough for the country, which eventually lead to him getting beat up trained by Chaka in sword fighting.  He seems to be a decent guy, who doesn’t really want to fight but definitely will if he has to.

2. Kebi:  As one of the original Sand Sand Clan members Kebi seems to stick by Kohzas side alot.  I’m not sure if he’s actually 2nd in command but his simple design and loyalty to Kohza make him a good 2nd place for this list.

3.  “89“:  The mysterious man I call “89” seems to make more appearances than almost any other member of the Rebel Army but we don’t really know anything about him.  His identity is hidden pretty well by the hood scarf thing he wears and he doesn’t say any lines, but then again that mystery is what adds to his appeal.

4. Okame:  We see her in the flash back to find out that she is one of the original members of the Sand Sand Clan, but when it comes time for the war, she only appears once.  She isn’t even showed fighting at all, but she looks like she could, so it’s too bad she didn’t get more to do.  Her potential and the fact that she seems to be the only female fighter in the civil war who isn’t a pirate, Baroque Works agent or Marine, put her up at number 4.

5. Erik:  This guy seems kind of out of place among the rest of the ragtag rebels, with his tophat and sports coat covered in what appears to be medals of honor.  He contrasts the fancy clothes with long unkempt hair and a pair of ripped pants turned to shorts.  Depending on what his medals are for he might have made it further up this list but until then, he’ll stay at 5.

6. “Jack X“:  I have no real reason for giving this guy the name Jack X, but he just needed to be called something.  He’s only seen in this one picture but his simple design was good enough to put him the list, so here he is.

7. Farafra:  This guy was used as an example by kohza to demonstrate the kind of danger that lay ahead for anyone who wanted to join the rebels.  Farafra lost a large chunk of his right shoulder protecting Kohza from some kind of blast, which is very noble.  However his upside down hippo teeth prevent him from going higher on the list, because on here, looks matter.  

8. “Handy“:  If you pay careful attention to the chaotic fights in Alabasta, you just might see a big guy with a katana and the what appears to be the word “HANDY” written on his shirt.  He only shows up once from what I can tell but he sure looks like he could be handy in a fight.

9. “Snore“:  Standing bored during one of Kohza’s speeches is this young man, that I have called Snore.  He doesn’t show up for any fights and doesn’t really look like he cares about anything that’s happening.  Another thing that bothers me about this guy is that he reminds of Pauly Shore for some reason. Maybe because he voiced this guy from Goofy Movie. I don’t know, but I don’t like it.

10. “Roarsack“:  Seen atleast twice with the same hat and sleeves, but with a slightly different design on his shirt, is the man I call Roarsack.  It seems to me that Oda meant for this to be the same guy but just didn’t keep the logos consistent.  With so many characters introduced in this one arc alone, you really can’t hold it against him if he doesn’t draw each of the hundreds of characters exactly the same.  Keep up the coolness Oda.

11. Kappa (special mention):  Although too young to really join the rebels Kappa did try to fight for his country and later went on to reveal the identity of Mr. 2 who had taken the appearance of King Cobra.  The kid has proven himself to be brave enough to at least deserve a mention.
