Admiral Issho Fujitora

Admiral Issho Fujitora

Also known as Fujitora, Issho is a blind Marine who owns the post of Admiral. The first mention of him was made by Admiral Commander-in-Chief Sakazuki when he announced his plan for the alliance formed between the Straw Hat Pirate and Trafalgar D. Law. This plan includes sending Admiral Fujitora to Dressrosa to destroy this alliance and capture the two pirates. Issho is thus the second antagonist of the Dressrosa Arc after Doflamingo.

Even with his blindness, this Admiral possesses incredible power linked to his Devil Fruit. He is able to summon meteorites, to make hover objects or people and also to create black holes.  He is one of the quintessential opponents of Roronoa Zoro . We invite you to discover all the details about this character in the rest of this article.

Issho appearance

Issho appearance

The face of Admiral Fujitorahas an X-shaped scar on his forehead that crosses each of his two eyes. This man is also suffering from blindness and when he opens his eyes, we only see the white. Her hair is black in color and is cut short. He also wears a beard and mustache of the same color as his hair. Like the other Admirals, he is very tall. As for the outfit, he is dressed in a purple kimono and cinched at the waist with a black belt. Fujitora covers it all with a white coat decked out with the Navy logo on the back and gold epaulettes. He wears geta, the traditional Japanese sandals with wooden soles, on his feet, and he moves with a cane made of wood as well.

Fujitora Personality

Fujitora personality

A fairly reasonable person, Admiral Issho has a tendency to trust others to the point of being taken advantage of. Indeed, it happens to him to show a certain naivety as when the underlings of Captain Corsaire Don Quixote Doflamingo deceived him by making him believe that he was a loser in the game of roulette. His weakness could certainly be explained by the fact that he is blind. However, you should know that Fujitora himself made the choice to lose his sight because, for him, this infirmity is a blessing allowing him not to witness the corruption that reigns in the world. On the other hand, when Monkey D. Luffyhad told him of the deception of which he was the victim, he had no hesitation in taking revenge on the crooks in a ruthless manner. He formed a gigantic black hole into which were swallowed those who had slyly deceived him. Another point of his personality is that he does not shy away from his responsibilities. This was notably seen when he did not hesitate to reimburse the damage he caused in the restaurant because of his black hole.

It should be noted that this Navy officer prefers to stick to his own values ​​rather than necessarily complying with what Admiral Commander-in-Chief Sakazuki alias Akainu recommends , namely Absolute Justice. It also appears that he tends to worry more about people’s safety than to reprimand criminals. He does not endorse the actions of the World Government, which always seeks to conceal the truth from citizens. This attitude shows a certain integrity in Admiral Issho. As a result, he has no hesitation in asserting his opinions and opposing his hierarchy as during his muscular exchange with his superior Akainu. In addition, he absolutely refused thereafter to apologize to the latter when Sengoku the Buddha, the former Admiral Commander-in-Chief of the Navy advised him to do so. On the other hand, Issho is not a maverick, he has in particular respect for the law as when he saved the life of the scientist psychopath César Clown for his alliance with Don Quixote Doflamingo.

Admiral Issho is also distinguished by his modesty which he demonstrated by having little reaction after Trafalgar D. Law and Don Quixote Doflamingo had praised his great strength as well as his undeniable reputation. In addition to modesty, he is also a humble person as when he knelt before Riku Doldo III aka Ricky, the l’ancien king of Dressrosa , and his subjects. He had done it to apologize on behalf of the Navy for the fact that the latter had allowed Doflamingo to harm them for 10 long years without having intervened. Issho also has a calm and unruffled temperament. Even when a meteorite launched on the Thousand Sunnywas diverted to his ship, he didn’t worry any more and continued to enjoy his noodles quietly while all his soldiers were in total panic. However, despite his calm and seriousness, the Tiger Violet certainly does not lack humor. He likes to use funny expressions, and even exaggerate them. As an example of his sense of humor, the fact that Luffy announces his attacks ahead of time amused him a lot and he even laughed at a pushy and outspoken Luffy about his infirmity. In addition, he prefers to have fun playing roulette rather than chasing Luffy and Law as his job requires.

Issho’s allies

The World Government

The World Government

As an officer of the Navy, Admiral Issho must obey the orders of the World Government. However, he does not really carry this entity in his heart for the reason that the World Government often lies to the people, only tells them what they want and acts only in its own interest. This is the reason why he apologized on behalf of the World Government for not intervening in Dressrosa when the country had been martyred by Doflamingo for 10 years. For this, he even knelt at the feet of King Riku and hundreds of citizens. Having been filmed by the escarphones, called Den Den Mushi, and disseminated in several regions, this approach aroused the anger of his superior, Admiral Commander-in-Chief Sakazuki and that of the Council of Five Deans, otherwise known as The Five Elders or Gorosei, which is the Highest Authority of the World Government.

Since Issho is an Admiral of the Navy, he is entitled to the respect of all this military organization. Each member of the Navy with a lower rank than his owes him full obedience without asking or asking the slightest question. As for his relations with the Admiral Commander-in-Chief, they are complex. First of all, Admiral Issho has the confidence of Akainu since it is he whom the latter chose to send to the l’île island of Dressrosa to put an end to the alliance concluded between Monkey D. Luffy and Trafalgar D. Law.However, the fact that Fujitora apologized on behalf of the World Government for what happened in Dressrosa, without notifying anyone of his act, greatly pissed him off. Because of this, the latter imposed an ultimatum on Issho that he had to bring back the heads of Luffy in the Straw Hat and Law at World Government Headquarters to Mary Geoise or he would be fired. This threat did not impress the new Admiral much, but rather caused him irritation. Besides, he hardly seemed to intend to obey his superior.

On the side of the other senior officers of the Navy, he seems to have a good relationship with  Vice Admiral Smoker, the White Hunter . It turns out that these two officers have the same vision about Justice, but also about the 7 Captain Corsairs: They hate them. For both, the agreement of the World Government with these pirates should be abrogated, especially in view of the infamous acts of Sir Crocodile alias Mr. 0in Alabasta and those of Don Quixote Doflamingo in Dressrosa. Indeed, these two characters deceived the respective inhabitants of these kingdoms by pretending to act like heroes in order to gain their trust while in parallel, they carried out their Machiavellian plan in the shadows. Note that Smoker had related to Issho during an exchange between the two characters the events that took place in Alabasta and had declared that he too wanted to destroy the order of the 7 Captain Corsairs.

The Grand Corsairs

The Grand Corsairs

Although he is allied with the 7 Captain Corsairs as a Navy officer, Admiral Fujitora does not trust them in any way. For him, they are simply pirates who benefit greatly from their alliance with the World Government and the privileges that flow from it, as was the case with the abuses of Doflamingo during his reign in Dressrosa. In truth, he feels a great contempt for the 7 Grand Corsairs and he joined the Navy during the ellipse which lasted two years with the aim of putting an end to this alliance and to dismantle, even eradicate, this organization.

Fujitora skills

Fujitora skills

First of all, the fact that Fujitora is an Admiral is proof of his undeniable power given that Admiral is the highest rank in the Navy and just preceded by the Admiral Commander-in-Chief. Thus, this rank is not given to just anyone, especially not to a person whose potency is less or has not been proven. And, by virtue of his position as Admiral, the thousands of soldiers who make up the Navy are under his authority. Another privilege due to his high rank is that he can command a Buster Call, the Navy’s ultimate military attack force in an operation of mass destruction., on any island he thought was a threat. He also has the authority to revoke the title of one of the 7 Grand Corsairs as he did for Trafalgar D. Law. And, in terms of fighting strength, Fujitora is seen as one of the most powerful members of the Navy.

In addition to this, it turns out that Admiral Fujitora possesses mastery over two types of Haki, namely the Armament Haki and the Observation Haki . He notably used the Busoshoku no Haki to impregnate his sword ⚔️ in order to stop the Birdcage of Doflamingo with the help of Roronoa Zoro, Kurozumi Kanjuro and Kinemon alias The Fire Fox. As for his mastery of Kenbunshoku no Haki, it is at a high stage and manifests in the form of an aura, which allows him to visualize what is in the surroundings even though he is blind. Moreover, his mastery of Sensitive Fluid is such that even when he uses it, he is still able to fulfill his duties as an Admiral. Another proof of Fujitora’s strength and power is that during the events of Dressrosa and his many clashes, he came through without any injuries or even visible scratches. Let’s not forget that Issho still fought Law and Doflamingo who are Captain Corsairs, Luffy and Zoro who are part of those we nickname the Supernovae (just like Law by the way) as well as Sabo who is the second most important member of the military organization of the Revolutionary Army.

Devil Fruit: Zushi Zushi no Mi

Devil Fruit: Zushi Zushi no Mi

Admiral Issho first unveiled the mighty power of his Devil Fruit at the restaurant in Acacia, the port city of the Kingdom of Dressrosa. It was in this place that he showed his ability to master gravity by creating a huge black hole there, into which he knocked all those who conned him into gambling because of his blindness. During this event, the scammers were first seen pulled violently towards the ground, which demonstrates the impressive force of gravity aroused by this Devil Fruit. Paramecia type, this Devil Fruit is known as Zushi Zushi no Mi. The latter offers Issho the possibility of achieving several feats through the mastery of gravity. In particular, it can affect objects, make meteorites fall from the sky and form gravitational barriers of circular shape which are used to protect itself from the attacks of its adversaries. Admiral Fujitora notably uses his cane notamment to channel his various skills.

Thus, Fujitora has been seen summoning meteorites from the sky to drop them on Trafalgar D. Law as well as Don Quixote Doflamingo. He also has the ability to immobilize his opponents on the ground thanks to the gravity he manipulates through his saber. And, as for Shiki the Golden Lion with the Fuwa Fuwa no Mi de or Trafalgar D. Law with the Ope Ope no Mi, Issho is able to levitate objects of any size with his Devil Fruit. He has notably been seen to hover a warship in the air as well as the debris of an island, demonstrating the enormous potential of the powers of Zushi Zushi no Mi. Even Doflamingo admits that his power is out of proportion. In addition, Issho does not need to touch the objects he wants to levitate at all, unlike Shiki’s Fuwa Fuwa no Mi. However, Zushi Zushi no Mi has weaknesses other than those common to Devil Fruits. For one thing, it turns out that its user’s gravity-related powers can be disrupted if the opponent directly attacks Fujitori. This is precisely what Roronoa Zoro had using a remote notch to escape the gravitational pin in which Fujitora had trapped him. On the other hand, both people and objects that are strong enough to hold their position are able to withstand the gravity exerted by this Devil Fruit. 👿

Weapon: Shikomizue

Weapon: Shikomizue

The wooden cane Admiral Fujitori moves with is not a simple cane, it actually conceals a sword. This kind of weapon is what is called in the Land of the Rising Sun a Shikomizue, which literally means a sword cane.. Issho uses this weapon in connection with his mysterious abilities related to his Devil Fruit. Even if this link between his Shikomizue and his powers has not yet been clarified to this day, we know that the weapon allows Issho to manifest a strange force. In addition, Fujitori’s level as a fencer has not yet been revealed but it can be argued that he must be an expert, despite being blind. Indeed, even if his blindness forces him to use this cane to move when he is not fighting, this infirmity does not handicap him in any way when he faces opponents.

Issho history

Issho history

Admiral Fujitora’s past has yet to be revealed other than the fact that at some point in his life he made the decision to deprive himself of his sight.  According to his own words, this choice was motivated by his disappointment and disgust with evil as well as the corruption that reigns in this world. During the implementation of the World Military Project during the ellipse, Fujitora as well as his colleague Ryokugyû were both elevated to the rank of Admiral. It is also during this period that we discover that Issho’s ultimate goal to enter the Navy is to put an end to the system of the 7 Captain Corsairs because he does not believe in it. It also seems that it was during this period that Admiral Issho first met Smoker, the White Hunter.

We then find Fujitora in Dressrosa when he was sent there by his superior Akainu who tasked him with dealing with the problem Luffy and Law who made an alliance. Instead of settling the matter as quickly as he should in obedience to his Commander-in-Chief, Fujitora instead starts looking for a casino then playing roulette in a restaurant in Acacia town. This is where he meets Monkey D. Luffywhile the latter defends him against subordinates of Doflamingo who scam him by taking advantage of his blindness. This is also when the Admiral demonstrates the power of his Devil Fruit when he takes revenge on the crooks who abused him after thanking Luffy for his frankness. After unsheathing a sword from his cane, he creates a large black hole in the restaurant floor and lures his con artists into it to knock them all down. Everyone who witnessed the scene was in awe of its power and might. Luffy even asks him his identity, which he refuses to reveal to her while laughing and leaving the restaurant.

After that, Issho heads with his whole fleet to the uninhabited island of Green Bit north of Dressrosa where Trafalgar D. Law and Doflamingo have set up a meeting for the exchange of scientist Caesar Clown. After Law admitted that he had entered into an alliance with the Straw Hat Pirates, Admiral Fujitora loudly declared that his status as Grand Corsair had now been revoked. He then began to attack it by summoning gigantic meteorites which crashed to the ground creating a huge crater. Fortunately, Law was able to survive unscathed, as were everyone present. Subsequently, Issho succeeded in immobilizing Law thanks to his mastery of gravity, but the latter managed to escape by taking advantage of which was in the area. The Admiral and Doflamingo then started chasing the Mugiwara who were on board their ship.  It was there that he showed another of his Devil Fruit’s powers by flying his warships in pursuit of the Thousand Sunny.

Arriving on the Dressrosa riverside, Issho witnesses Law’s “death” after Doflamingo shot him three times in the chest. Subsequently, he will help pirates and gladiators protect the population of Dressrosa against Doflamingo’s plan and his Operation Birdcage.. He will even call in the Armament Haki to attempt to stop the Birdcage and give Luffy time to defeat the Celestial Demon. After the Straw Hat Pirate defeated Doflamingo, Issho knelt before King Riku and his citizens to publicly ask their forgiveness for Doflamingo’s hideous deeds and the non-intervention of the World Government. His act earned him the wrath of his superior who forced him to bring back the heads of Luffy and Law. It was after this that Luffy and Issho clashed until the latter was stopped by the inhabitants of Dressrosa wanting to protect Luffy and his companions. He then understood that they had only good intentions and protected them against pirates in the ankle with Doflamingo.

Fujitora vs Zoro

Fujitora vs Zoro

These two characters first met in the back alleys of Acacia town as Admiral Fujitora asked the suspicious swashbuckler if he knew the location of a casino nearby. Afterwards, the two had a first clash which was quite brief when Roronoa Zorowanted to attack Doflamingo and that Issho intervened to block his attack. It was then that Zoro recognized the Navy Admiral in front of him as the old blind gambler who had asked him about the location of a casino and who had created a gigantic black hole in the restaurant. The Admiral at the same time made a black hole appear under Zoro’s feet with formidable force according to Zoro himself. He threw Zoro at it and held him firmly to the ground with his force of gravity. However, Zoro managed to escape by launching a lightning ranged attack on Fujitora, an attack the latter found dangerous. Fujitora and Doflamingo then left the scene of the fight, levitating with the inert body of Law, to go to the Royal Palace of Dressrosa.

Zoro crossed swords again with Admiral Issho in episode 683 of the series when the latter stood in the way of Luffy and the swashbuckler who were running to bring down Doflamingo. Note that, in the manga, only Zoro faced Fujitora while, in the anime, it is first Luffy who attacks the blind Admiral first and then Zoro. During this fight, the Admiral manages without difficulty to parry the numerous attacks of Zoro. However, their duel was also interrupted by Pica appearing suddenly and with a crash from the underground after taking the form of a titanic golem. There was another fight between Admiral Fujitora and Zoro, but it took place in One Piece Stampede, the fourteenth film inspired by the series and released in 2019 in celebration of the 20 years of the anime. This clash took place on Delta Island on the occasion of the Pirates Festival organized by Buena Festa who is famous for being the Master of Festivities. Admiral Fujitora was sent there by Navy HQ with a fleet of Buster Calls, the ultimate military strike force capable of destroying anything in its path. As soon as this attacking force approached the island, Fujitora rushed to fight Zoro by flying from his ship towards the beach. The two swordsmen engaged in an epic duel with their respective devastating techniques until Grand Corsair Dracule Mihawk aka Hawk Eyealso landed. Issho then put an end to the duel by invoking a gigantic meteorite as a farewell gift.
