Zou[edit | edit source]
Naitamie-Norida Elephant[edit | edit source]
Naitamie-Norida elephants (ナイタミエ・ノリダ象 Naitamie-Norida Zō?) are massive elephants whose legs stretch down to the ocean floor, allowing them to walk through oceans. The species have an immensely long lifespan and can live for more than 1000 years, and are distinguished by their disproportionately long legs which have two knee joints.
Wany[edit | edit source]
Wanies (ワーニー Wānī?) are species that looks like a hybrid of a crocodile and a boar. They are domesticated and used as transportation by the Mink Tribe. They have a stout build with a thick tail that curls up close and four legs that are rather thin compared to their bodies. They are convenient both on land, and for swimming during Eruption Rains. One was first seen being used by Sheepshead and Ginrummy when they were pursuing Tristan. The only known named one, Wany, is owned by Wanda.
Hot-Hot Sea[edit | edit source]
Armored Stonefish[edit | edit source]
Armored Stonefish (ヨロイオコゼ Yoroi Okoze?) live in the Hot-Hot Sea (熱々海 Netsu-netsu kai?) in the New World and are larger than average humans. They can be cooked and eaten except for their skin, which is very poisonous and in most cases causes instant death accompanied by a severe rash.
Luffy managed to catch one during the voyage to Whole Cake Island for the Sanji retrieval team to eat; however, he ate the skin and was brought to the brink of death. His built up resistance to poison saving him from instant death, it still caused his condition to worsen over a short span of time, and none of the antidote the Straw Hat Pirates tried worked on him. However, Vinsmoke Reiju sucked out the poison from Luffy via mouth-to-mouth, saving him with no ill-effects on her (and she even considered the poison to be a delicacy).
They may be based on real-life stonefish, one of the most venomous fish known. It is also edible when properly cooked and is considered a delicacy in many parts of Asia.
Totto Land[edit | edit source]
General[edit | edit source]
Territorial Sea Slug[edit | edit source]
Territorial Sea Slugs (ナワバリウミウシ Nawabari Umiushi?) are sea slugs which live in the waters of Totto Land. It emits "warning waves" whenever someone comes to alert them to where they are. The waves are picked up by any Den Den Mushis in the encroaching ship. They were shown to enjoy listening to Charlotte Praline's singing.
Giant Aquatic Centipede[edit | edit source]
These maritime creatures resemble very large centipedes (大ムカデ Ō-mukade?) with very sharp teeth and long tongues. One of these centipedes resided in the waters of Totto Land and attacked the Thousand Sunny.
Ants[edit | edit source]
There exists a colony of ants (蟻 Ari?) in the Sea of Mizuame who will attack ships they encounter and eat them until not a trace is left. Unlike in the real world, these ants are comparatively large, being about the size of small mammals.
Animal Homies[edit | edit source]
Many kinds of talking animals have been shown to inhabit Totto Land as citizens thanks to the power of Big Mom's Soru Soru no Mi which has turned them into anthropomorphic beings called Homies (ホーミーズ Hōmīzu?), allowing them to talk, stand upright and wear clothes like normal humans. At first glance, animal-type homies can be mistaken for members of the Mink Tribe, however the key difference is that they cannot use Electro. Another major difference is that while minks are limited to being based on mammalian animals, homies can be any kind of animal (or non-living object), ranging from reptiles, birds and amphibians. Animal Homies confirmed thus far include, crocodiles, cranes, frogs and rabbits.
Whole Cake Island[edit | edit source]
Sharks[edit | edit source]
A frenzy of purple sharks with pink polka-dots are located in the sea surrounding the north-eastern shore of Whole Cake Island, and have made said shore a popular place to dispose of the undesirables. They are so vicious that once they are done with a victim, not even a hair will remain.

Giraffe[edit | edit source]
Smoothie making drinks from a giraffe may be a reference to the Kirin Company, a Japanese beverages company. "Kirin" is the Japanese word for giraffe, although the company is named after a mythical creature of the same name.
Sea Tiger[edit | edit source]
While retrieving the Shark Submerge III, Chopper and Brook encountered a sea beast resembling a white tiger with glowing red eyes. In the manga, they merely went by it. In the anime, it appeared in front of them and tried to eat them. They ran away and manage to elude it by the next episode. The animal may be based on the shachihoko, a mythical creature with the body of a carp and the head of a tiger.
Germa Kingdom[edit | edit source]
Snails[edit | edit source]
The Germa Kingdom uses large snails as the base for their land, having built platforms on their shell that when connected makes the kingdom's territory. The snails appearance resemble the Den Den Mushi, but are notably larger, each appears to be at least three times as wide as the Thousand Sunny. Those snails are seemingly unaffected by the salty sea, and are strong enough to climb the Red Line.
The snails double as a ship, to create the kingdom's fleet. There are two masts at the top of each ship, which carry large black sails bearing the number "66". Their shell is modified, having docking knobs for when the ships reassemble the kingdom, that resembles two portholes on each side. When gathered together, these snail ships will either remain in their shells or socialize with one another.

Normal-sized mice could also be found around the kingdom. Back when Sanji was a child, he was known to cook for stray mice, something that angered his father and brothers due to the attitude being seen as unfit of a royal.
South Blue[edit | edit source]
Gryphons[edit | edit source]

Koi[edit | edit source]
Gigantic Koi (鯉 Koi?) are known to inhabit Wano Country's seas despite being freshwater fish, swimming into the land by following the inward sea currents of the country. Once they arrive at the waterfall that brings the country's freshwater to the sea, the koi attempt to climb it by swimming up the stream. The Straw Hats were able to use these koi to reach the top of the waterfall through Luffy's Gomu Gomu no Mi, arriving at the Wano Country shortly after.
Baboon[edit | edit source]
A large Baboon (狒々 Hihi?) was encountered by Luffy right after arriving at Wano Country. It towers over an average-sized person and it seems capable of wielding a katana. It was later named Hihimaru after being tamed by Luffy and Tama.
Lizard Mounts[edit | edit source]
Raptor-like Lizards with a snake-like head are used by members of the Beasts Pirates as mounts. When two members of the Beasts Pirates and their mount attacked, Luffy easily defeated one of the two and then punched their mount which caused one of the riders to accidentally shoot his own beast in the head which caused an explosion, knocking out the mount followed with the remaining rider by Tama. Members of the Hawkins Pirates also ride these animals.
Tigers[edit | edit source]
Large Tigers (?) reside in Wano's wasteland and are unique in that they have flame-like eyebrows. One was seen hunting a wild boar while the tiger itself was being hunted by a Wanizame. Another was later used by Franky, Nami and Kanjuro as a mode of transport with Franky adding a saddle and strapping handlebars to its head. In the anime, it had a tuff of fur on each leg and a bushy tail that all resemble flames.

A Wanizame (ワニザメ Wanizame?) was seen by Luffy as it was chasing a tiger and a wild boar. It is a giant sea monster resembling a crocodile crossed with a shark with several dorsal fins on its back. Jack also used a Wanizame as his personal mount when he confronted Shutenmaru in Okobore Town.
It is based on the legendary Japanese sea dragon which was described as resembling a shark and a crocodile.

Onimaru is able to shapeshift into a human form, in which he takes the name Gyukimaru. It is unknown if this is a natural ability of komagitsune or if Onimaru gained it through other means.
Komauma[edit | edit source]
Tanishi[edit | edit source]
The Tanishi (タニシ Tanishi?, literally meaning "River Snail") is Wano Country's equivalent to the Den Den Mushi. Unlike the Den Den Mushi that are based on land snails, the Tanishi's shell spirals out like tower shell sea snails.
Smart Tanishi[edit | edit source]
The Smart Tanishi (スマートタニシ Sumāto Tanishi?, literally meaning "Smart River Snail") or Smashi (スマシ Sumashi?) for short, is a small Tanishi used as a mobile and compact communication tool.

Fruit Footballfish[edit | edit source]
Fruit Footballfish (フルーツチョウチンアンコウ Furūtsu Chōchin-ankō?) are fish that resemble giant fruit, allowing them to lure hungry prey. Their fanged faces blend in with their bodies, unseen until they attack. They live in the Mixed Juice Current of Totto Land, where seas of peach, orange, and watermelon juice mix together. There is a variant of fruit footballfish for each sea.
Luffy was seen catching a watermelon variant. It tried to eat him but he was able to stick a leg out its forehead and split it in half with a version of "Gomu Gomu no Axe" called "Gomu Gomu no Watermelon Splitting". He then caught an orange and a peach variant off-screen that were cut up into slices along with the watermelon one. Afterward Luffy, Chopper, and Carrot began eating the watermelon, peach, and orange variant respectively. Although Pedro said they were not poisonous, Nami was against eating them.
Their name may be based on real-life footballfish.
