The Heart crew

The Heart crew

We discovered The Heart Pirates two years ago on the Sabaody Archipelago when the Straw Hat Pirates landed there. This is a famous crew made up of medical pirates. Their captain is none other than  Trafalgar D. Water Law, a member of the Eleven Supernovae . As proof of their true potential, the vast majority of this crew were able to resist the effects of the Royal Fluid by Silvers Rayleigh aka Dark Lord.

The “fame” of this crew is well established if one takes into account only their total capture premium which amounted to more than 440,000,500 Berrys after the two years that the ellipse lasted. In addition, this premium has now risen to more than 500,000,500 Berrys with the further increase in the premium of Trafalgar Law. Find out all the details about this crew later in this article.

Captain Trafalgar D. Water Law

Captain Trafalgar D. Water Law

Trafalgar D. Water Law, commonly known as Law, is the captain of the Heart Pirates. It should be noted that this crew is mainly made up of doctors.  He is originally from Flevance, otherwise known as Ville Blanche, an island located in North Blue. As it was said before,  Law is part of the Eleven Supernovae, a group of pirates notorious for their crimes and whose capture bounty is quite high. Prior to the two-year ellipse, his Berrys personal bounty of 200,000,000 was the fifth highest of those eleven pirates.

During the ellipse, Trafalgar Law obtained the status of Captain Corsair under the orders of the World Government. On the other hand, after Navy Admiral Issho alias Fujitora learned that he had allied himself with the Mugiwaras, he took that title away from him. So, following the events that took place in the Dressrosa Arc, Law saw his premium go up to 500,000,000 Berrys. Let us briefly note that this character nourishes the dream of discovering the famous treasure of One Piece like many other pirates of this era.

Fearsome and shrewd pirate, Trafalgar D. Law is considered to be one of the most powerful of his generation. Moreover,  after the two-year ellipse, its power has grown so much that it is feared by all, even by the Navy officers of the G-5 naval base who are themselves renowned for their cruelty. . Note also that his capture bonus had at one time exceeded that of Luffy before he became Grand Corsair and brought back to the World Government a hundred pirate hearts.

Other proofs of his power: he defeated Vice-Admiral Smoker who holds a Logia-type Devil Fruit as well as the powerful Vergo fighter  , The Bamboo Demon  despite being beaten up. He was also able to ward off an attack launched by Navy Admiral Issho. He shows great courage, possesses incredible physical strength as well as great endurance.

Captain Trafalgar D. Water Law

In addition, Monkey D. Luffy had revealed that Law had mastered the Haki although it is still unknown to the extent of his abilities. However, he proved his mastery of Busoshoku no Haki when he used it to block Captain Corsair Don Quixote Doflamingo’s technique called Goshikito or Five Color Strings . He also used it to attack the latter after hardening his fist as well as his foot. He also appears to have used the Kenbunshoku no Haki or Observation Haki to avoid a Haki-infused arrow fired by an Amazon.

Trafalgar D. Law’s skills are not limited to what has been said above. His great medical expertise added to his incredible fighting skills have earned him the nickname of Surgeon of Death. He was notably able to heal and heal Luffy as well as Jinbe the Paladin of the Seas . The latter being a Pisces Man, we can therefore conclude that Law’s medical and surgical skills are not confined to human anatomy.

In addition to this, Law is also the owner of a Nodachi, a large two-handed sword. Bearing the name of Kikoku, this sword is cursed, but it is one of the 83 famous swords called the Meito . In addition, Trafalgar Law knows how to handle this blade with a formidable precision and it often happens to him to combine his techniques with the saber with the powers of his Fruit of the Devil. He is notably able to cut an entire mountain or even a meteorite with his Nodachi.

Devil Fruit Ope Ope no Mi

Devil Fruit Ope Ope no Mi

The Heart Pirates captain ate a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit, namely Ope Ope no Mi or Scalpel Fruit, which turns its user into a Male Modifier . Thanks to the power of this Devil Fruit, the user is able to establish around him a spherical zone of aura delimited and named “Room”. The latter is light blue and translucent and its size is defined by the user according to his needs. He has the power to manipulate anything in this area, be it objects (cannonballs, ships, etc.) or living beings.

There is full control over the placement and orientation of objects or people and can then separate or move them spatially. This ability allows the user to dismember his enemies from a distance using his sword, and without them suffering or dying. And, with that power, Trafalgar Law feels like being able to slice people into pieces in a flash. Note also that the user has the possibility of gathering the cut pieces as he wishes. As an example, Trafalgar Law once attached the head of a Marine to a barrel. The effect of this power remains active even after the user has removed their aura sphere. On the other hand,

Devil Fruit Ope Ope no Mi

Know that the powers of Ope Ope no Mi go even further. Indeed, the user can also lift and move the objects that are in the Room. He can thus move people inside the sphere and change their places. He can also use his Room to teleport himself. He also has the ability to exchange hearts of people with each other just like swapping their personalities through the technique called Shambles .

In the latter case, the user is the only one able to restore the inverted personalities, but on condition that the original bodies are present. It is important to note that if the user performs a Soul Swap, the abilities of targets linked to a Devil Fruit remain in their original body. On the other hand, other abilities such as Haki follow inverted souls. Sanji was notably seen using his Observation Haki via Nami’s body. The powers of this Devil Fruit have some weaknesses. Their effects are notably limited to the defined area of ​​the aura sphere. Not all people who are outside of this area or who manage to get out of it can be affected.

Another of its weaknesses is that its use is dangerous for the user because this Devil Fruit is grueling. Indeed, Traflagar Law mentioned that keeping the Room active all the time requires a lot of energy. In addition, if we are to believe Smoker, the inconsistency of a Logia-type Devil Fruit can offer some protection against the powers of Ope Ope no Mi. Smoker also says that a good mastery of a Haki can offer resistance to this Devil Fruit. However, Trafalgar Law managed to slice Vergo in half after he had used his Weapon Haki fully.

The members of the Heart crew

The members of the Heart crew

The Heart Pirates have a total of twenty members in addition to Trafalgar Law. This crew is distinguished by a specificity, namely that all its members are dressed in the same white suit, with the exception of its captain and the new recruit Jean Bart who had to opt for a black shirt. This jumpsuit displays the crew’s Jolly Roger  on the front. As for Bepo, he is also dressed in the same outfit with the difference that his costume is orange. Note that the members of this crew have not yet all been revealed but, among those which are known to us to date, we know that Bepo, Shachi and Penguin are experts in martial arts. Besides, it seems that these three characters have a rather similar fighting style.

Bepo

Bepo

Zepo’s little brother (killed by Big Mom on the Totto Land Archipelago), Bepo is a polar bear from the Minks Tribe and born on the island of Zô. His position with the Heart Pirates is a navigator and he must be quite proficient in this area since he was able to bring the crew to the New World. However, his mapping skills seem to be lacking in light of the Dressrosa Island map he made for Trafalgar Law. Its strength is substantial since it resisted  Silvers Rayleigh’s Fluid. With his martial arts skill and fighting style comparable to true experts like Bruce Lee, he possesses incredible agility and as Mink he certainly has the ability to manipulate electricity. We can’t wait to discover Bepo’s Sulong mode

Jean Bart

Jean Bart

Jean Bart was previously a formidable pirate captain (Trafalgar Law recognized him as such) who was later enslaved by the World Nobles. He was presented in the manga as a slave to Saint Roswald who collected pirate captains. He then joined the Heart Pirates after Trafalgar Law freed him from the Sky Dragons. Jean Bart has great physical strength as he was able to demolish a bridge with a single punch. Moreover, even after having endured all the suffering inflicted by the Roswald family, Bart remains a person of excellent stamina and incredible willpower. Additionally, Bart has been seen to use a fast moving technique which is similar to the Soru or Incision. As for his role in the crew, he is presented as the helmsman in the anime.

Penguin

Penguin

Next is Penguin, a member of the Heart Equige. He grew up as an orphan with Shachi and lived with the latter’s uncle and aunt, but both were treated like slaves, which prompted them to run away. So they lived alone in a cabin in a forest on Smallow Island in the North Blue region. This is how Penguin and Shachi met Bepo when they wanted to tackle the latter, but Law intervened to rescue the polar bear and defeated them both. Like Bepo, he has great agility due to his skills in martial arts. 

His fighting style is also very close to that of true martial arts experts. His hand-to-hand combat techniques are quite effective. He also displayed a lot of willpower when he was able to resist the Haki of the Kings of Silvers Rayleigh on the Sabaody Archipelago in the Slave Auction House when most of the other characters present were knocked out. It should be noted that Penguin was also seen with a spear when Drought Jack, a Man-Fish from the Giant Grouper race , and his men attacked the Isle of Zô. We can therefore advance the idea that Penguin must know how to handle spears.

Shachi

Shachi

Another member of the Heart Pirates, Shachi grew up with Penguin as an orphan when the two lost their respective parents. The two joined the crew of Trafalgar Law together after the latter treated them for their wounds received when they were attacked by a boar. Note that Shachi and Penguin adore women. Besides, they are both nice characters and they have great loyalty to their captain.

Like Bepo and Penguin, Shachi is very good at martial arts with a style that also resembles that of true martial arts experts. And like the other two, he also has excellent agility. He is also very effective with his hand-to-hand fighting techniques. Despite revealing that he was almost knocked out by  Silvers Rayleigh’s Haoshoku no Haki , he was still able to resist it, which demonstrates the great strength of his will. When Drought Jack and his pirates attacked the Isle of Zô, Shachi was seen wielding a katana. It seems obvious that he also knows how to handle the sword.

Law’s Allies

The Straw Hat Pirates

The Straw Hat Pirates

It was in the Punk Hazard Arc that it was revealed to us that Trafalgar Law had made an alliance with the Mugiwara. The goal of this alliance is to dethrone the Yonkô Kaido . You should know that Law and Luffy had already allied a first time, with Eustass Kid another Supernovae, when they were on the Archipelago Sabaody. Law has already saved Luffy’s life during the war from Marine Ford after he was fatally injured.

In addition, several of Law’s crew were delighted to learn that their captain had allied with the Straw Hat Pirates. This was notably the case with Penguin and Shachi. It was finally in Arc Zo in Whale Forest that the Heart pirates got to know Luffy and his crew. They partied with them as well as with the Minks even though they hated Luffy’s bad tendency to always cut them off in the middle of a discussion. It was at this point that Jack and his entire fleet landed on the Isle of Zo to attack them. A battle ensued that lasted five days and ended in their defeat.

Minks

Minks

The Mink Tribe is allied not only with the Kozuki Family, but also with the Heart Pirates. We know in particular in a flashback relating to the attack of Jack the Drought on the island of Zô that the pirates of the Heart came to the aid of the Minks. They were at their side during the five days of the battle. They were ultimately beaten after Jack unleashed Extermin, a gas engineered by scientist Caesar Clown. This gas had poisoned and severely weakened the Minks as well as the members of the Heart Pirates. These were saved by Sanji and his group. Recall that one of the crew members is precisely from the Mink Tribe, namely Bepo.

Kozuki family

Kozuki family

In order to defeat and dethrone Kurozumi Orochi, the incumbent Shogun in Wanland, the Kozuki clan has established an alliance with the Straw Hat Pirates and the Heart Pirates. The other objective of this triple alliance is also to defeat Kaido, one of the Four Emperors, who is rightly allied with  Kurozumi Orochi. After the battle which took place on the island of Zô, the Crew of the Heart embarked for the Country of Wah in the company of the Samurai forming the 9 Red Scabbards of the Kozuki clan, the rescue group led by Sanji as well as the Minks. . It’s all these beautiful people then joined by Luffy and Zoro who faced Kaido and the Pirates of the Hundred Beasts Pirates in the Wano Kuni Arc.

The Jolly Roger of the Heart crew

The Jolly Roger of the Heart crew

Like many other pirate crews from North Blue, the Heart Pirates did not wish to display a skull as Jolly Roger. Trafalgar Law and his pirates have instead opted for a kind of Smiley instead. The latter looks a lot like a virus, which is an appropriate choice given the position occupied by its captain and his epithet, namely “Surgeon of Death”. This Jolly Roger can be found on the outfits of each member of the crew as well as on the side of their ship.

Law’s Crew Ship

Law's Crew Ship

Members of the Heart Pirates move primarily through a submarine which was first seen in Episode 487 of Chapter 578 titled Into the New Era . This yellow-colored submarine was named Polar Tang, which was revealed in the SBS (Everyone’s Questions) Book 82. Unlike other pirate ships that move in the wind, the Polar Tang has a motor and moves with the help of sea currents. However, even though it is a submarine, it was designed as a ship with two large masts in the bow and stern as well as kinds of street lights.  The upper decks are made of wood and several small round windows have been installed at the level of the upper part.

In addition, we find on the side the Jolly Roger of the crew accompanied by the word death in reference to the tattoos of Trafalgar Law on his hands and his nickname “The Surgeon of Death”. Remember that this crew is mainly made up of doctors, so it is normal to see this submarine equipped with medical devices as well as life support systems placed in the infirmary. When underwater, this submarine shows excellent maneuverability and very good speed of movement. We could see this in particular when the ship was able to get ahead of the huge wave of ice caused by Admiral Kuzan alias Aokiji thanks to its Devil Fruit, the Hie Hie no Mi or Givro-Fruit. This was also the case when the crew were able to escape the destructive beams of light launched by Borsalino aka Admiral Kizaru through his Devil Fruit, the Pika Pika no Mi. As can be seen in the picture, this submarine has cannons.

Heart crew strength

Heart crew strength

This crew seems to possess undeniable power for several reasons. The first is that they have managed to get to the Sabaody Archipelago and the Seonce and that they have one of the Eleven Supernovae as their captain. In addition, the Pirates of the Heart have undoubtedly improved their strength with the arrival of a newcomer in the person of Jean Bart, a legendary former pirate captain. As proof of the power of this crew, we can especially talk about the resistance shown by each member during the explosion of the Haki of the Kings of Silvers Rayleigh. We can also cite their ability to escape from the Sabaody Archipelago like the other Supernovae when Admiral Kizaru landed there. Another of the great strengths of this crew concerns their skills in the medical field. Indeed, they have within their submarine what could be considered a complete operating room. In addition, their captain Trafalgar Law was able to hand overMonkey D. Luffy on his feet when the latter was on the verge of death.

As seen earlier, the main members of Law’s crew known to date are all true martial arts experts, like Bepo, Penguin, and Shachi. Added to this, the new member Jean bart brings with him his great physical strength. However, their captain remains what makes the great strength of this crew. In addition to being one of the Eleven Supernovae, he was also designated to be part of the Seven Great Corsairs after the two-year ellipse. He only lost this title because Navy Admiral Fujitora discovered he had entered into an alliance with the Straw Hat Pirates.. As a demonstration of his power, Trafalgar Law was able to defeat a troop of the Navy, but also Vice Admiral Smoker, the White Hunter as he ate the Moku Moku no Mi, a Devil Fruit type Logia. It is important to note that here Law did not call upon the powers of his Haki as he managed to rip Smoker’s heart out.

Join the Heart crew too

Join the Heart crew

The fame of the Pirates of the Heart is well established, especially with the presence in their midst of one of the famous Eleven Supernovae, Trafalgar Law who turns out to be their captain. Additionally, each member is powerful enough to withstand Silvers Rayleigh’s Royal Fluid and this crew has been a great help to Luffy, the Minks as well as the Kozuki Family.
