Grand LineEdit

Island WhalesEdit

Just after the Straw hats entered the Grand Line, they met a gigantic whale called Laboon. After the time skip, they entered the second half of the Grand Line, and watched a gam of Laboon's kin.

Royal SquidEdit

Royal Squid

The Royal Squid that tried to attack the Straw Hats.

Royal Squid (大王イカ Daiō Ika?, Neptunian Squid in the Viz Manga and Great King Squid in the FUNimation dub) is a giant cephalopod that attacks any ship who travels the Grand Line. It tried to attack the Straw Hat Pirates, but was killed by Crocus. In real life, the giant squid's main predator is the sperm whale, and since it was found within Laboon's stomach, it can be inferred to be true in One Piece as well. It first appeared in Chapter 102 and Episode 62.

Kappa WhaleEdit

A Kappa Whale Following Smoker's Ship

A Kappa Whale following Smoker's ship

The Kappa Whale is a whale that resembles the legendary Japanese monster Kappa. It was seen traveling at sea while Smoker and Tashigi were on their way to Alabasta. It first appeared in Chapter 128 and Episode 79.

The kestias (romanized as keschia in the Viz Manga) is a type of tick that inhabits hot, humid jungles and carries deadly bacteria in its bite. Being an ectoparasite, this arachnid preys on the blood of mammals and birds, and it is through this hematophagy that diseases can be transferred through the kestia's proboscis. The phlebotomic action can infect the host species with blood-borne viruses, parasites and bacteria contained in the hematophagous organism. Once bitten, an infection forms and after five days the infection begins to spread, causing the victim to experience intense pain, known as the Five Day Disease. During this time, the victim’s temperature rises up to 40 °C causing myocarditis, arteritis and encephalitis. After the full five days of infection, the patient apparently dies. It takes ten days after treatment to recover from the disease. While the Straw Hat Pirates were at Little Garden, Nami was bitten by a kestia, causing her to become sick. Kestias were supposed to have become extinct one hundred years ago, but it survived on Little Garden because of its humid climate. Nami was bitten by the kestia off-panel in the manga; although she was bitten in the anime in Episode 77 due to having her stomach exposed for a short while when her shirt was burned off.

In the 4Kids Entertainment dub, the whole Little Garden Arc was removed, but they oddly kept the part about the kestia or "stingy-dingy bug". Initially, the disease passed on by the bug was referred to as "Grand Line Fever".[11]


Island Eater Anime Infobox

Island Eater, a giant goldfish.

The Goldfish is a species of fish first mentioned by Usopp in one of his lies.[12] A giant one known as Island Eater later appeared at the end of the Little Garden Arc.[13] Little is known about the regular specimens.

Giant DolphinEdit

Giant Dolphin

A Giant Dolphin.

The Giant Dolphin (巨大イルカ Kyodai Iruka?) is a dolphin that is hundreds of times its normal size. They existed since the dawn of time.[citation needed] One of them is seen near Little Garden. Another one can be seen during one of the opening themes in the anime. It first appeared in Chapter 115 and Episode 70.[14]

Drum IslandEdit


Chopper's Former Herd

Chopper's former herd.

Reindeer (トナカイ Tonakai?) are a species of deer that live on Drum Island. Reindeer in the real world live in incredibly cold climates and this holds true in One Piece as well. They travel in herds, and the ones in One Piece tend to shun any members of the herd they deem strange and in extreme cases, willing to kill the said odd member on sight, as was the case with Chopper (most likely inspired by the tale of Rudolph).[15]

Hiking BearEdit

A Hiking Bear. They pose no danger. Don't forget to bow. It's proper hiking manners.
— Dalton to the some of the Straw Hat Pirates, talking about Hiking Bears.[16]
Hiking Bear

A Hiking Bear.

A Hiking Bear (ハイキングベア Haikingu Bea?) is a giant white orthograde bear from Drum Island known as a mountain climber. It appears to be completely bipedal without outside aid, the walking stick seems to be just an accessory for its hiking activities. The accepted manner in dealing with one is to just bow to it as a respectable mountain climber and leave it be.[16] In the 4Kids dub, it was called a mountain climber since the bear ate the latest one. They first appeared in Chapter 133 and Episode 80. Hiking Bears are type "A" creatures, being "Big Friendly".[17]

When passing a Hiking Bear, one is to bow to it in the respectable mountain-climbing fashion. If one refrains from the gesture, they will be subjugated to sitting in the traditional Japanese position for one hour. People have experienced massive leg cramps while undergoing this torture.[18]


Lapahn (ラパーン Rapān?, name is based on the French word "lapin" (pronounced lah-pahn) which means rabbit; Lapins in the English versions) are big, white, carnivorous and intelligent snow rabbits from Drum Island. They are the most vicious species of animal on Drum Island and aggressively protect their territory. They appear to have nonretractable claws and favor plantigrade, bipedal motion, although they can also be seen on all fours, with their hind legs becoming digitigrade, likely for speed or extra spring in their jumps, making them a facultative quadruped. They first appeared in Chapter 134 and Episode 80. A lapahn with a scar near its eye is the leader of the lapahn pack.

A baby lapahn attacked Luffy and Sanji while they were bringing Nami, who was sick, to the only doctor on the island, and though they defeated it easily, its parent and other Lapahn showed up and gave Luffy and Sanji a hard time. They eventually caused an avalanche by hopping up and down, which not only buried Sanji, but the baby lapahn's parent as well. Luffy, while carrying both Sanji and Nami up the mountain, saw the baby lapahn trying to dig up its parent, and helped it out. The lapahn herd later returned the favor by holding off Wapol long enough for Luffy to get up the mountain. Wapol himself was surprised by this as it was believed that lapahn could not be tamed by humans. The lapahns now live in peace with the people on Drum Island.[19]

After the timeskip, Dalton has made some of the lapahns part of the peace-keeping troops.[20] Later, the Lapahn's pack leader was seen as part of the escort for Dalton and Kureha at the Levely.[21]

White WalkieEdit

The White Walkie (ホワイトウォーキー Howaito Wōkī?) is a species of fur-covered hippo found in the Drum Island area. This animal is well adapted to life in snowy mountains. In fact, it is overadapted. It is so comfortable in the snow that it does not even bother to stand up most of the time. Though they can move much faster with their legs fully extended, walkies can climb vertical surfaces with much greater ease with them withdrawn. They first appeared in Chapter 133 and Episode 80. They are classified as a type "A" creature "Big Friendly".[17]

Wapol had a White Walkie named Robson that he rode all over the Drum Kingdom. Wapol had more, who were Robson's brothers, but he killed them.[22] Robson was sent flying by Luffy and Sanji's Air Force Gomu Shot attack by mistake during the battle for Drum Castle. Luffy hit Wapol sending him crashing into Robson and flying into the sky. In the 9th movie, it is shown that Robson landed in a snow bank. [23]

Snow BirdsEdit

Snow Birds

Snow birds.

Snow Birds (雪鳥スノウバード Sunō Bādo?) are white birds that are found in Drum, mostly found in Drum Castle where they makes their nest on door frames and inside the Royal Drum Crown 7-Shot Bliking Cannon, which displeased Wapol and he tried to kill them but Luffy stopped him. They first appeared in Chapter 140 and Episode 84. They are classified as type "B" creatures "Small Friendly".[17]




A Bananawani.

Bananawani (バナナワニ? Banana Gators in the English versions) are giant crocodiles with banana-shaped growths on their heads. They are so fierce that they even prey on Sea Kings and are to date the Sea Kings only known natural predator. Despite their strength they were easily defeated by Sanji. Bananawani is a portmanteau of the Japanese word "wani" (which means alligator or crocodile) and the English word "banana". "Bananawani" is also the name of a Japanese park, where people can see plants, crocodiles and turtles. They first appeared in Chapter 127 and Episode 77. They are classified as type "C" creatures being "Big Savage".[17]

Crocodile had many Bananawani as pets in his old (now destroyed) casino in Rainbase. He could control them as they were often seen in the room with him and Nico Robin without any sort of aggressive attitude toward either of them. Crocodile seems to have had them well-trained as they would also follow his commands, such as eating Mr. 3 and the key he dropped into their den merely by looking at one. Their stomach acid is resisted by Mr. 3's wax.[24]



Miss All Sunday's F-Wani.

The F-Wani (F-ワニ? Accellegator in the Viz Manga) is a sub-type of Bananawani less ferocious than the usual breed, and capable of very high speeds in the Sandora Desert. It lives in Alabasta. Unlike their larger cousins, they have two banana-shaped growths, one on their tail and one on their nose. Miss All-Sunday had one for her personal transport.

They first appeared in Chapter 180 and Episode 111.

Its name (and speed) is an obvious pun on Formula One racing.

Kung-Fu DugongsEdit

The Kung-Fu Dugongs (クンフージュゴン Kunfū Jugon?, Kung-Fu Jugons in Viz Manga and 4Kids dub) are dugong-like creatures with turtle-like shells native to the Alabasta coast. Though small, they are renowned their martial art skills and strength. Their code of honor states that once they are defeated, a dugong must follow and aid the one who defeated them; this code extends to all prior 'disciples' of their master as well.

During their escort of Nefertari Vivi, the Straw Hat Pirates encountered a pack of Kung-Fu Dugongs on the banks of the Sandora River (a serious sign, according to Vivi, that the river was being overcome by seawater). The entire pack was quickly tamed by Luffy, and tried to follow him through the desert, forcing Tony Tony Chopper to bribe them off with half the crew's provisions. They later reappeared when the crew (sans Luffy, then occupied with Crocodile) tried to re-cross the Sandora; when the crew was attacked by a Sandora Catfish, the dugongs quickly beat it unconscious and used its body as a raft to tow their 'fellow disciples' across.

Following the Alabasta Arc, they have made several more cameos, usually in closer proximity to human society. Several of them - apparently female - patronized the women's baths on Ukkari Hot-Spring Island.[25] Another was seen inside Alubarna's royal palace, in the company of Igaram, Chaka, and Pell.[26]

They are classified as type "B" creatures, that is "Small Friendly".[17] They first appeared in Chapter 161 and Episode 82[27].

The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.

In ONE PIECE 3D! Trap Coaster, Kung-Fu Dugongs are seen employed as Marine soldiers. They serve under Captain Trap.[28]

In the anime-only Caesar Retrieval Arc, the leader of the Kung-Fu Dugongs from Alabasta returns to the story. Inspired by Luffy's speech about freedom, he decided to become a pirate himself and, after recruiting other animals in his crew, he managed to get stronger, learn how to utilize Busoshoku Haki, and enter the New World. There, he encountered Breed, who enslaved the Kung-Fu Dugong and his crew by using his ability. He first appears in Episode 626 and is voiced by Kazuya Nakai.[29]

Hasami, a Moving Crab.

The Moving Crab (ヒッコシクラブ Hikkoshi Kurabu?, Crab Mover in the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub of movie 8) is a giant decapod crustacean found in the deserts of Alabasta. They are purely terrestrial, having no interest in entering bodies of water, and walk sideways like typical crabs (the articulation of their legs makes sideways gait more efficient). "Hasami" was the only moving crab shown, and helped the Straw Hat Pirates move from Rainbase to Alubarna. He seems to have a liking of dancer girls and women in general. They are classified as type "A" creatures "Big Friendly".[17] They first appeared in Chapter 176 and Episode 110.

Sandora CatfishEdit

Warusagi Birds (ワルサギ? Evil Herons in the Viz Manga and Bilker Herons in the 4Kids dub) are a crane like species that is found in Sandora Desert. They lay on the ground, pretending to be dead but when the travelers pass by, they steal their belongings. They are known as "thief birds". They are classified as type "D" creatures being "Small Savage".[17] Waru means "bad" in Japanese, while sagi can mean either "heron" or "swindler". They first appeared in Chapter 162 and Episode 97.

Luffy found a few of them, thinking they were dead and ordered Chopper to help them, before Vivi could warn them. However it was too late, as the bags they were carrying had been stolen.[32]

Erimaki RunnersEdit

Lizard Runners

The Erimaki Runners.

Erimaki Runners (エリマキランナーズ Erimaki Rannāzu?, Lizard Runners in the English versions) are frilled lizards who delivers messages across the desert at an incredible speed. They appear to be facultative bipeds, much like the real life basilisk lizard, as a function of speed to charge across the desert- but it is unknown if they revert to quadrupeds when not running. Baroque Works used those kinds of animals. Comically in the manga, the one who wasn't carrying a message made a confused sound, as if indicating he was confused why he was running without a message. They are classified as type "B" creatures being "Small Friendly".[17] They first appeared in Chapter 161 and Episode 96.

Desert StrawberryEdit

The Desert Strawberry is a poisonous spider indigenous to the deserts of Alabasta that bears a strong resemblance to a strawberry.

Some desert travelers will come across this spider and, if they are hungry enough, will eat it, mistaking it for an actual strawberry. Upon eating it, the traveler will then become poisoned and then suddenly die within a few days. A few hours later, the corpse will then release further toxins poisoning anyone around them. The corpses of suspected victims of the desert strawberry are to be approached with extreme caution. It was never seen by the Straw Hat Pirates, only being mentioned by people in Nanohana who thought Ace had eaten one.[33]

Filler AnimalsEdit

Giant ScorpionEdit

Giant Scorpion

A Giant Scorpion.

Giant Scorpion is a scorpion of gigantic size that live in the Sandora Desert. It tried to attack Ace, but it was killed by Ace's Mera Mera no Mi powers. It appeared in Episode 98. Another scorpion appears in Episode 100. It hides in the sand and is provoked by Luffy. After it reveals itself, it tries to sting him, but it is defeated by him, Zoro, Sanji, and Chopper and is later cooked and eaten.

Giant GeckoEdit

Giant Gecko

A Giant Gecko.

Giant Gecko is a giant lizard that lives in the Sandora Desert. Ace used it as transportation in the Sandora Desert. Its most noticeable behavior is that it tries to imitate what it comes across, in this case, mirroring Ace's sidestep as the pirate tried to get around the lizard. In Ace's case he used the giant gecko as a mount. It appeared in Episode 98.

Giant Bug Edit


A Sandora Giant Bug rolling a dung boulder.

Sandora Giant Bugs are giant bugs that lives in the Sandora Desert. The Sandora Desert Bandits use them to attack the Barbar Pirates.

Rice Rice's Escar.

Escar is a type of sea snail that Rice Rice rides in when delivering products for the Den-Den Company. Its shell is large enough inside to house a tall man and a large amount of inventory, and it has a hatch door that Rice Rice uses to get in and out of the shell.

It is unknown if it is a breed of Den Den Mushi or just a kind of snail. It appeared in Episode 132.[34]
