Boa Hancock is a former member of the Shichibukai. She is also the current Empress and “Serpent Princess” of Amazon Lily and rules the Kuja Tribe with her two younger sisters, Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold. She is the main antagonist of the Amazon Arc Lily who fell in love with Monkey D. Luffy and swore loyalty to him .
She’s also one of the Marineford Arc tritagonists alongside Ivankov, the deuteragonist from the One Piece 3D2Y special .
She was first mentioned by the Risky brothers at the end of the Thriller Bark arc when comparing her legendary beauty to the beauty of mermaids . She is considered by many to be the most beautiful woman in the world . While employed with the Shichibukais, her love for Monkey D. Luffy led her to turn against the world government on several occasions, thus putting her status as Shichibukai in jeopardy until she lost her ability. status during reverie because of Crocodile and Doflamingo .
19 years ago, she and her sisters were sold and considered slaves to the nobles of the world , which resulted in their hatred towards men and the world government. They were tortured and force-fed on devil fruit by their so-called “masters” for 4 years, until a fisherman named Fisher Tiger came to Marie Joa to free his fellows who suffered as slaves and who nevertheless freed everyone, including Hancock and his sisters, despite his hatred of humans. After escaping from the nobles of the world, she and her sisters met Silvers Rayleigh and Shakuyaku and called on Gloriosa to send them home, but the marks on their backs cannot fade.
At 18, Hancock became Empress of Amazon Lily, and her sisters became her assistants. She earned a bounty of 80,000,000 berrys until she was accepted as a member of the Shichibukais, not only to defend her homeland and her fellow Kuja against the world government and male invaders, but also to enable her sisters and to herself to keep their secret. After Luffy flew to Amazon Lily, she and the Kuja mistakenly believed he had invaded their homeland and captured him to be executed after Hancock refused to accept the World Government’s summons against the hackers of white beard and petrified Momonga’s men in stone .
After Luffy covered the mark on Sandersonia’s back, Hancock called off his execution to have a conversation with him ☠. After learning that Luffy caused an incident on the Sabaody Archipelago by hitting a world nobleman, Hancock and his sisters will tell him everything he needs to know, including the meaning of his friend Hatchan’s mark on his forehead, since it is now worth trusting them. After Luffy declares that he only hated the Nobles of the World for their selfishness, Hancock feels relieved and not only does she forgive his previous acts and befriended him, she even falls in love with him, which makes him feel relieved. causes “love sickness” , a disease that comes into contact with the empresses of Amazon Lily and causes their own death because they reject their love for men.
When Luffy learned that his brother Ace was going to be executed during the war against Whitebearde, Hancock agreed to his request, thus accepting his love for him to help him sneak into Impel Down to save Ace until he was escorted to Marineford . At the start of the war, Hancock nevertheless attacks the Marines and the Whitebeard Pirates because she does not consider the Marines as her allies but considers them all as her enemies. As Luffy and the others arrive at Marineford after escaping Impel Down, she feels relieved at Luffy’s safety and ready to help him. As Sengoku ☸ revealed that Luffy’s father is none other than Dragon the leader of the Revolutionary army, Hancock shows no empathy by calling Dragon the “devil”. After Akainu’s murder of Ace,
After escaping from Marineford, she petrifies the Marines and clashes with Trafalgar Law and the crew of the Heart until Ivankov and his comrades Newkamas take charge of the ship Hancock stole. Hancock calls on the Kuja Pirates to shelter the Heart Pirates for Luffy’s safety against the World Government and the Marines.
After the two years of ellipse. As the Straw Hat Pirates prepare to travel to Fishman Island , Hancock and the Kuja Pirates prevent the Marines from getting in their way. After the Dressrosa incident, Hancock hung Luffy’s bounty photo in front of his palace , which greatly annoyed Gloriosa.
During reverie, Hancock and his companions lost all privileges and became once again wanted criminals and enemies of the world government . The Marines led by Coby arrived in an attempt to capture her. Boa Hancock is neither impressed nor scared as she will show the Marines the power of the Kujas and show no mercy. Many speculators believe Coby is no match for Hancock ⚔.
A horrible past
Hancock is one of the many characters seen twenty-four years before the main story commenting on the death of Gold Roger (or more precisely the Great Age of Pirates).
Having nowhere to go, the sisters were eventually rescued by the Elder Nyon , Silvers Rayleigh and Shakuyaku, brought home, but the Flaming Dragon’s Hoof , the symbol of the Tenryubito, was burned deep in their flesh. Hancock chose to hide the mark and his Devil Fruit powers , and let his companion Kuja know that it was punishment for killing a gorgon. She, Marigold, and Sandersonia were collectively given the nickname “Gorgon Sisters”because if the truth is revealed, the three sisters will have nowhere to go.
When Hancock was twelve, she and her sisters were part of the crew of the pirate Kuja and were sailing their ship , when suddenly they were captured by slavers and sold to the Tenryubito. During her period of slavery, Hancock was fed the Mero Mero no Mi to entertain her captors. The three suffered the greatest horrors imaginable, until four years later a man by the name of Fisher Tiger et appeared and, although his goal was simply to free fish slaves, he freed as many as he did. he could without discrimination.
Unfortunately, despite her release, Hancock’s experiences corrupted her innocence, and she would later grow up and distrust everyone (except her sisters), especially men . She also particularly hates the world government , especially the Tenryubitos. Over the years, despite Nyon’s love and pity, Hancock grows cold, burying any feelings of warmth, kindness and sensitivity deep within her, and though she later becomes Empress of the Kuja , she is selfish and insensitive to her people.
At eighteen, Hancock became Empress of the Kuja and quickly gained a notorious reputation despite her young age, drawing the attention of Marines and even the World Government, who were frightened of her potential as she had earned a large bounty. in a short time. Hancock later chose to join the Shichibukais in order to protect his compatriots in the Kuja, making a treaty to protect their homeland from the government, preventing them from entering it.
Appearance of Boa Hancock
Compared to the unnatural and gigantic appearance of his sisters, Hancock has a well-proportioned figure. She is a very tall and very thin woman, with long black hair down to the waist, locks of hair that frame her face up to her chin, a big breast, a high forehead and light brown eyes (dark blue in anime) which have long voluminous eyelashes topping them 👁.
For the more curious among you, the measurements are according to Oda, creator of the series, a J cup breast, making them bigger than those of Nami or Robin.
Her dress changes frequently. When she arrived, she wore a revealing red blouse that showed a large part of her chest and a loose sarong that exposed her long, slender legs adorned with the green Kuja symbol , as well as a white cape with epaulettes that more often found on the jackets of high-ranking Marines, and red high-heeled pumps . She then wore a qipao with a hooded cloak which she used to cover Luffy until they arrived at Impel Down, then removed it during the battle against Whitebeard. During the war against Whitebeard, she wore a purple dress with Kuja patterns and purple high-heeled pumps.
Upon her return to Amazon Lily, she reverted to her original outfit (except for her cape). In all of her outfits, she wore a pair of gold earrings that look like snakes and high heel shoes; her outfit is also adorned with the emblem of the Kuja, except for the period when Hancock fell ill from her love-sickness, during which she wore a red blouse. After the time jump, her outfit is the same as when it was first shown except that it is colored blue .
Her beauty is noticed by many people all over the world: for one of the Risky brothers, her beauty is the second most beautiful after that of mermaids, while others like Marguerite and Hannyabal claim that she is the most beautiful. woman of the world. We also almost always see her with Salomé, her great serpent weapon , who, despite the skull she wears, is generally smiling.
Although Hancock is normally either pretty and calm, or cute (in an attempt to “apologize” for her actions), when she is angry she looks very intimidating, her eyes bulging wildly and her teeth bared. , as seen when Smokers nearly killed Luffy .
Before Hancock falls in love with Luffy, and when she’s not near Luffy, her eyes tend to look emotionless , but when she’s near Luffy, her eyes show a lot more emotion, making her look like a girl in love .
Along with her sisters, she wears the Tenryubito Slave Mark on her back, something she was so keen to keep a secret and was ready to petrify anyone (other than her sisters and the Elder Nyon) saw it. In order to ensure that she was never seen, she and her sisters concocted a lie that what was actually on the sisters’ backs were pairs of gorgon eyes that would petrify anyone who saw them. Hancock uses this “
Boa Hancock personality
Hancock is a very complex woman. At first glance, she seems to be selfish, pompous and spoiled and used to having her own way. She can also be arrogant and cruel, usually justifying her unadmirable deeds with her seemingly unmatched good looks, making her believe that she can get away with it because the world will forgive her (and with the exception of the hilt). able to resist him, she largely succeeds in this approach , suitors of both sexes happily forgiving her every transgression). She also gave the impression that she didn’t think much of the Kuja tribe by telling Elder Nyon that she didn’t care whether the island was destroyed or not ,
Due to her beauty and strength, she is used to seeing men and women, young and old, instantly fall in love with her . Therefore, people forgive her when she kindly apologizes or reminds them of her beauty. However, when Luffy arrived and showed complete immunity to her charms, she first felt that she couldn’t stand the existence of a person completely invulnerable to her powers , and that she was falling apart dramatically. every time we touched his ego.
That feeling has faded, however, as she loves Luffy despite her immunity to him . Even after the two-year suspension, Hancock continues to be in love with Luffy as much as before, despite the latter’s openly rejecting a marriage proposal from him.
It was revealed that the reason for Hancock’s lies and attitude towards life was due to her horrific past, she never wanted to show weakness to anyone again.. She had a great fear of getting close to anyone other than her own sisters and even went so far as to cheat on all the other Kuja, which made her surrogate mother, Nyon, fear that Hancock had really become so cold. than ice . It wasn’t until Hancock confessed everything to Luffy that she finally showed emotion, starting to cry after reliving her painful memories.
Deep down, Hancock is a rather sensitive and vulnerable woman who is afraid and worried about how other people (especially other Kuja) might react to the truth about the inglorious past that she shares with her sisters. She is also much more gentle and compassionate to others when she opens up. This part of her was only shown for the first time in several years in front of Monkey D. Luffy and since then she has befriended (and even fallen in love) with Luffy, even agreeing to be to venture into the land of his suffering , of his slave days, at the request of his brother.
Hancock was also very devious and cunning when the situation called for it. This is what she particularly demonstrated when she helped Monkey D. Luffy quietly pierce Impel Down’s outer defenses, as well as manipulate the great prison guard, Magellan , to her whim before passing on a secret message to Ace , Luffy’s brother, whom the latter was trying to save. She’s also proven to be a very skillful liar who is good at story-making, and her self-confidence leads her to never consider the consequences of her actions. An example of this is when she takes advantage of her beauty on floor 6 of Impel Down to drive the prisoners crazy,talk freely to Ace without anyone noticing .
Relations of Empress Boa Hancock
Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold
Hancock is very close to his sisters because they have been through a lot together as slaves . They all have a strong bond and support each other in their actions. This is how when she became Empress, she allowed her sisters to rule alongside her and entrusted them with her authority when she left for Impel Down. Initially, when Luffy asked Hancock to go to Impel Down, Marigold and Sandersonia vehemently rejected the idea . However, when Hancock agreed to his request, they respected his wishes, as well as his infatuation with Luffy, and wished them good luck .
Given the way little girls are born on their island, as women who have traveled overseas come back pregnant it is not known if the three share the same father , or even if they are related by blood. due to their different appearances, but it is assumed that they share the same mother.
Hancock plays the role of the ungrateful little Gloriosa, even though Gloriosa has helped her and her sisters find Amazon Lily. Gloriosa tried to convince Hancock to accept the summons, but she refused. Hancock likes to make sure Gloriosa remembers that she is considered a Kuja Traitor and is told to stop commanding her since Hancock is the current Empress of Amazon Lily and she threw Gloriosa by. the window. Despite the fact that if Gloriosa hadn’t been at sea by then, she and her sisters would have nowhere to go, and Gloriosa treated them like they were her own daughters . And yet, the relationship between the two is akin to that of a teenage girl and a mother, despite their differences. Regardless, Hancock has some respect for Gloriosa, as she went to see her to help him understand the confusion of her sudden feelings, for which Hancock thanked her. In return, Gloriosa supports and is proud of Hancock’s decision to help the object of his love, instead of letting it consume and kill her .
Salome is Hancock’s snake weapon ⚔. Salome is generally used as a throne on which she can sit and as a weapon of combat. No matter where Hancock is, Salome is next to her. Hancock appears to be close to Salome, as the serpent worries when Hancock is ill from his love illness and assists Hancock in all of his battles.
Hancock has a complex relationship with his Kuja subjects, protecting them from the world government but refusing to continue to protect them by working with the latter. She also destroyed a clay statue of her, made by several little girls, simply because it was made of earth, mud and clay, and petrified three Kuja warriors (Marguerite, Pois de Senteur and Aphelandra ) for allowing a man (Monkey D. Luffy) to enter the island and defend his crime. However, there hasn’t been a Kuja who doesn’t like and admire Hancock, and who doesn’t approve of every decision she makes (with the exception of Elder Nyon, to some extent) .
Even Marguerite did not show a grudge against Hancock after being devoid of any mercy. Likewise, Hancock cares what they would think of her if they knew she was a slave, even though she is now Empress, and worries that she would shame the tribe if they were aware of his past. So she continually lied to them to protect herself .
Ever since Hancock fell in love with Luffy, she began to treat the Kuja Warriors very nicely. She sometimes goes so far as to offer to help them prepare the food for Luffy’s recovery.
Silvers Rayleigh has become very good friends with Boa Hancock and her sisters . He is one of two exceptions to Boa Hancock’s hatred of men for helping her and her sisters after escaping the world nobility. The other is Monkey D. Luffy (Hancock’s love interest and the only man who hit a celestial dragon ). When Rayleigh told Hancock that no women were allowed during Luffy’s training, Hancock scolded him while pinching his nose , but he managed to calm her down because it was all to the advantage. by Luffy.
Monkey D. Luffy
Originally antagonistic to him, Hancock saw Luffy as a man who, being immune to her charms despite seeing her naked, could not be allowed to exist. She refused to believe his story of being sent to the island by Bartholomew Kuma , and ordered his execution . She also thought he was like all men in the world, selfish and arrogant, but she was wrong and was even moved by his acts of selflessness . Luffy is perhaps the only one (after Rayleigh and Shakky), apart from her family, that she truly considers a friend .
She quickly befriended him when he covered her sister’s back while he was fighting, so that no one could see the Tenryuubito’s slave mark on her . When given the choice, she chose to save Marguerite, Pois de Senteur and Aphelandra rather than use them to her advantage, and that he went so far as to strike one of the world nobles , and did not feel contempt for Hancock for having been a slave in the past. So, due to Luffy’s bravery, selflessness and good heart, Hancock fell in love with Luffy, causing him the “love sickness,” which was the cause of the death of nearly all of the previous Empresses. However, Elder Nyon says all previous Empresses died because they tried to suppress their feelings by moving away from their object of desire, while Hancock will survive by going with Luffy .
Due to his feelings, Hancock finds it difficult to look Luffy in the eye and tends to blush in his presence (much like a young girl with a crush). She also tends to daydream around Luffy. She asked Luffy to call her Hancock, as opposed to her title, and almost passed out the first time he called her correctly by her first name, given he’d been wrong a few times before. by calling it “Hammock” . Moments later, she actually passed out after believing that Luffy had said “I love you” (愛 し て る。 aishiteru) when he actually said “Thank you” (あ り が が う arigatou) .
She continues to faint with joy every time Luffy pronounces her name correctly and, apparently, counts the number of times he has said her name correctly. When Luffy hugged her during the Battle of Marineford, she thought it was a proposal. But later, Nyon told her that she was not married. As a result, Hancock is now determined to marry Luffy. Even though Luffy says he is not going to marry Hancock, she still loves him very much and is not at all dissuaded from it.
During the Battle of Marineford, Hancock declares that all men, whether sailors or pirates , are his enemies, with Luffy being the only exception. Even after finding out the truth about Luffy’s legacy, she puts it aside and doesn’teven though he is the son of the devil . She is also extremely protective of Luffy, going so far as to attack Commodore Smoker for restraining Luffy, much to the chagrin of the Marines watching over them. She even openly declared that Luffy was her beloved one.
In fact, since Luffy’s arrival at Marineford all Hancock could do was focus his attention on Luffy’s well-being, erupting in anger whenever he was attacked and shivering with fear each time. that she couldn’t tell if he was okay. Arriving at Luffy’s side after the war and receiving information about her critical condition from Trafalgar Law , Hancock expressed her desire to be the one to take all the pain in Luffy’s place.. She cares about Luffy so much that she ate next to nothing when she returned to her island, until she was sure Luffy was okay, and even then she ordered that she be given the most. of food possible so that he can recover .
Although Luffy doesn’t have the same romantic feelings towards Hancock as she does towards him, he has shown that he really cares and appreciates her. During his argument with Magellan, when the Headmaster said he would ask Luffy to tell him how he got into Impel Down, Luffy protected Hancock by stating that he would not tell Magellan even though. it was killing him . He then showed her his gratitude by kissing her and pointing out that she had “saved his skin” twice, helping her break into Impel Down and giving her the key to the handcuffs by Ace marine granite.
The old Shichibukai
Hancock was very suspicious of Jinbe when they first met, but since he helped save Luffy, she let him take refuge on his island until he was completely healed . In fact, Hancock showed increased respect for Jinbe by protecting Luffy and even allowed him to explore his island. making Jinbe the second man to be allowed into his country, which shows that Hancock has come to trust Jinbe greatly. Jinbe has shown that she is afraid of crossing paths with her because she refuses to take some of Luffy’s food (which she only cooks for Luffy) and despite their unstable relationship, they are allies against the World Government. They also share a past of slavery tied to that of Jinbe, whose captain freed a number of slaves, including Hancock and his sisters. It is not known whether Hancock knows that Jinbe was a close friend of Fisher Tiger or was part of his crew.
Trafalgar D. Water Law
Law’s willingness to help Luffy through hard times caused Hancock to put his trust in him and thank him for saving Luffy , making Law one of the few men she respects aside from Luffy, Rayleigh and Jinbe. She provided Law and his crew with food and shelter on her island, provided they did not enter her town. Law has also shown that she is one of the few men who are not interested in her beauty. To ensure Luffy’s safety, she didn’t tell the Marines about their private meeting .
The world government and the navies
Despite being one of the Shichibukai, Hancock sees the world government as her enemyand, just like Nico Robin, she declared that she hated the world government and those who obey it. Much of this comes from her past with the Heavenly Dragons , who tortured her and her sisters from an early age until they were saved by Fisher Tiger. Even as Shichibukai, she will never take orders from the world government, although she claimed to be okay with carrying them out, such as when she lied about her agreement to wage war on Whitebeard just for them. temporarily remove him. She doesn’t think twice about attacking her so-called “allies” in the Marines. In some cases, his friction with the world government has reached dangerous levels, which even the
She agreed to fight Whitebeard only because it allowed Monkey D. Luffy to save her prisoner brother Portgas D. Ace (still unknown to the world government). Even though she agreed to fight Whitebeard, she made it clear that the Marines are not her allies by indiscriminately attacking pirates and Marines during war. His continued support for Luffy during the war further tested his status as Shichibukai. As for the Marines, Hancock views Smoker as a personal enemy after he cornered and attempted to kill Luffy. Hancock has sworn to tear it to pieces and feed it to the beasts . She also got angry with Aokiji when he stabbed Luffy with an ice cube blade.
Due to her hellish experience with the first man she saw, the one who painfully left her mark on her, Hancock feels a bitter hatred towards all men (the only exceptions being Luffy, his interest in love, and Rayleigh. , who helped her and her sisters after they escaped slavery), which led her to indiscriminately attack pirates and Marines during the war. It is not known what she thinks of Ace , as he is Luffy’s brother (although she was surprised to find that they weren’t related by blood), but she didn’t show much. antagonism towards him when they met, and she stole the key to his chains during the war.
She also made exceptions for the Heart Pirates for saving Luffy, and Jinbe received similar treatment, either because of his actions to protect Luffy during the war, which made him a patient of the Heart Pirates in sides of Luffy, either because of the probable possibility that his cathartic rescue by Fisher Tiger gave him a better impression of the Fishmen than his first horrific interaction with the Men. Of course, that could also be because Jinbe is a member and current leader of the Fisher Tiger crew, the Sun Pirates .
Fisher Tiger freed Hancock and his sisters, as well as many other slaves, during his rampage in Mariejois. Having only met (or at least seen) him once, she was shocked at his recklessness, and terrified by the brutality with which he fought. However, she said she owed him a debt that can never be repaid .
Straw Hat Pirates
It’s unclear how Hancock feels about the Mugiwaras crew, as Luffy is the crew captain. She seems to care about them (due to her love for Luffy), as she willingly protected them from the Marines and helped them set sail for Fishman Island. The Straw Hats seem to enjoy what she’s done for them, as Brook and Sanji have already fallen in love with the beauty of the Pirate Empress (Sanji turning to stone just by looking at her). Usopp also described her as the most beautiful woman he has ever seen .
In the anime, when Luffy told Hancock about his crew, she became incredibly jealous of Nami and Robin., thinking they were rivals. She also became determined not to lose to them.
Abilities and Powers of the Pirate Empress
Hancock is considered extremely powerful by his friends and enemies. Ruling alongside his sisters, Hancock has power over Amazon Lily and the rest of the Kuja Tribe. As the empress and captain of the tribe, she is quite possibly the most powerful of the Kuja warriors . The Kuja believe that “strength is beauty”, and since all the members of the tribe declare that she is the most beautiful in the world, they believe that she is very powerful, and the strongest of the whole tribe. It should be noted that only the strongest Kuja warriors are allowed to be part of the nation’s pirate crew. Hancock and his sisters were strong enough to be there when they were little, although it is possible that they were just apprentices like Shanks and Buggy.
Its strength is so great that it was even recognized by the then Chief Admiral Sengoku ☸ of the Marines. Even former Admiral Kuzan commented on her skills, saying she shouldn’t be underestimated. Another testament to her strength is the fact that she was one of three Shichibukai who managed to leave the war unharmed . The fact that she can earn an 80,000,000 bounty after her first campaign as a pirate further strengthens her abilities.
This is what we can see when she managed to destroy several Pacifista on her own. (by pre-petrifying the incredibly tough alloy they are made of) without showing any signs of exhaustion or injury, where it took the entire Straw Hat crew (before their two-year training) to bring one down alone, which left them very tired. While it is true that the Pacifistas were programmed not to attack their allies, the fact remains that destroying so many of them is a difficult task.
Hancock is very skilled in the art of subterfuge and deception. She managed to disguise Monkey D. Luffy in her cloak without arousing much suspicion during an entire boat trip and inside Impel Down, andshe was the sister who proposed to spread the story of the “curse of the gorgons” to prevent her subordinates from discovering the humiliating mark of slavery on their backs for decades. Hancock is also very smart, devious and cunning when the situation calls for it, being able to save Luffy time, using his charms, after hearing Magellan’s plan to stop his infiltration and successfully manipulating events at the level. six of Impel Down by creating a commotion between the resident prisoners and a “protective” Magellan for speaking to Portgas D. Ace in private and without attracting attention, as well as stealing the key 🗝 from Ace’s handcuffs for Luffy before her arrival, knowing that she would be useful.She has shown herself to be very skilled in hand-to-hand combat, often in tandem with her Devil Fruit . She was able to fight effortlessly against many New World pirates. Like Sanji, Hancock seems to prefer kicking attacks . While she is stronger at close range combat, Hancock is also adept at long range combat and is able to use her Devil Fruit powers to strike enemies from long range.
Boa Hancock also has great tolerance thanks to the pain caused by all the tortures of the world nobles .
Boa Hancock’s physical abilities
Her raw strength is immense, clearly showing signs of superhuman strength as she can easily shatter stone (in the form of petrified opponents) with a single kick, able to smash multiple Pacifists without shedding sweat (while Sanji almost broke his leg trying the same task, although she used her Mero Mero no Mi powers to turn them to stone first) and being able to kick Smoker in a smoky state with his Haki; although with all of these examples, she could have used the Busoshoku Haki to strengthen her kicks.
Hancock ate the Mero Mero no Mi a Paramecia-type Fruit forcibly by the world nobles who enslaved her, as a form of sadistic entertainment .
As part of the lie to keep the Mark a secret on his back, Hancock made the Kuja Tribe believe that the power to turn people to stone was a curse given to him by killing a Gorgon monster .
Haki from the Pirate Empress
Much like Silvers Rayleigh, Monkey D. Luffy, Hancock demonstrated the three types of Haki: Busoshoku Haki, one of the most common types of Haki used in the series, Haoshoku Haki, an ability that only one person in one million can use , and the Kenbunshoku Haki, which can sense the feelings of animals and people and dodge attacks from enemies at their own speed.
She is shown using her Busoshoku Haki to kick Smoker and injure him when he pinned Luffy to the ground.
Snake Princess Cooking Skills
At one time, Hancock was a very bad cook , but now she has become very good at cooking meat, Luffy’s favorite dish.
Weaknesses of Boa Hancock
Inability to swim: Like other Devil Fruit users, Hancock is unable to swim and leaves her to drown .
Sea Granite: Like other Devil Fruit users, Hancock is vulnerable to Sea Granite due to its ability to drain powers from fruits.
The Sickness of Love: Like the previous Empresses of Amazon Lily, Hancock is vulnerable to the Sickness of Love (an illness that killed previous Empresses due to their denied love). However, Hancock accepted his love for Luffy in order to counter this “curse” .
The Claw of the Heavenly Dragons: Like her sisters, Boa Hancock’s greatest weakness is the mark of the Heavenly Dragons during her slavery.
Famine: According to Gloriosa, Hancock would have starved to death if Gloriosa had not brought her home with her sisters .
Torture and Abuse: Along with his sisters, Hancock suffers pain and agony through all sources of torture. During her slavery, she was marked by the Heavenly Dragons on her back at the age of 12 . She was tortured and mistreated by the Heavenly Dragons for 4 years and was also forced to eat Mero Mero no MI by her so-called “masters”. Although she escaped the Heavenly Dragons, the sufferings and torments of the nobles of the world continue to drive her and her sisters away.
