Babanuki is a Headliner of the Beasts Pirates who serves as the warden of the Prisoner Mine in the Udon region of Wano Country.[2]

Appearance

Babanuki is an extremely large and muscular man with long dark hair and a large beard. Like many other SMILE users, he has two horns on the top of his head. He wears dotted metal plates on his arms, a belt with a large round buckle, and dark pants. Due to the consumption of a SMILE fruit, he has an elephant's head on his chest.[2]

Personality

That's right!! If you can't work then obediently starve to death like a man!!
— Babanuki agreeing with Daifugo about the Prison rules


As warden of the Prisoner Mine, Babanuki is quite cruel, telling Hyo that a real man should die if he cannot earn food by undergoing the prison's grueling work.[1] He is not sympathetic to the prisoners and will often blow off their actions as insignificant due to the immense power he and his subordinates hold over them.[3] He takes running the prison quite seriously, but he can also be slightly dim-witted, as he did not pay much mind to Luffy's attempted escape and he and his subordinates had to be spurred into action by Queen.[4] However, he can also be more reasonable and level-headed than his superior as he tried to remind Queen of how dangerous it is to get between Big Mom and her food after Queen insulted and threatened her[5] and later ordered his men to not shoot at Big Mom, knowing that it would only anger her.[6]

Like many other characters, he has a unique laugh: "Paopaopapapapa" (パオパオパパパパ?).[2]

Abilities and Powers

As warden over the Prisoner Mine and a Headliner, Babanuki has the greatest amount of authority among the people there, having power to give orders to other members of his crew and overseeing the subjugation of the prisoners.[2] So far, it only seems as though he answers to his general, Kaido, and the All-Stars, namely Queen.[4]

Devil Fruit

Babanuki ate an elephant SMILE, which caused an elephant's head to grow out of his chest. Unlike some other SMILE users, Babanuki appears to have full control over his elephant head, having been seen speaking through it.[1] The elephant head is capable of unleashing powerful explosive blasts of air out of its trunk.[7]

Attacks

  • Elephant Hakkushon (象の鼻息エレファントハックション Erefanto Hakkushon?, literally meaning "Elephant Nasal Breathing"): Babanuki's elephant unleashes a massive sneeze that can fly a great distance and create a powerful explosion upon impact. The explosion was strong enough to stun and slightly injure Luffy, albeit while he could not use Haki.[7] This is called Elephant's Marchoo in the Viz Manga. Hakkushon is the Japanese onomatopoeia for sneezing.

History

Wano Country Arc

Babanuki watched as Daifugo punished Hyo for possessing meal tickets he did not earn, and he told Hyo that he should die if he could not work for his food.[1] Babanuki then saw Monkey D. Luffy attack Daifugo, and he was stunned at how powerful the attack was despite Luffy being weakened with Seastone handcuffs. He moved to kill Luffy immediately, and hit him with an explosive elephant sneeze. Queen then arrived to talk with Babanuki, and Babanuki told him about the issues happening in the prison, including Luffy attempting to escape at that very moment. However, Luffy and Hyo were eventually caught and brought before Queen.[8]

Babanuki stood next to Queen while watching Luffy fight in the Sumo Inferno.[9] On the next day, Babanuki informed Queen that they brought Kamazo and the recaptured Eustass Kid.[10]

When Big Mom arrived at the Prisoner Mine, demanding oshiruko, Babanuki tried to reason with an angered Queen by telling his superior that it was not a good idea to fight against Big Mom simply over food.[5] After Big Mom overpowered Queen, Babanuki told Daifugo not to provoke her. He then asked for Kaido's orders only to learn that Udon's communications were disabled. He is later shocked when he sees Luffy remove his and  Hyogoro's collars.[6]

Trivia

  • Babanuki (ババ抜き?) is the Japanese name for the card game Old Maid, fitting with the card game-themed names of the Beasts Pirates Headliners.
