One Piece Wiki

Vice Admiral Balzac is a Marine officer and the leader of the Prisoner Unit (囚人部隊 Shūjin Butai?). He is the primary antagonist of One Piece Premier Show 2019.[1]


Balzac is a man with long, smooth black hair and blue eyeshadow. He wears a high collared Marines cape that has the words "完璧正義" (Kanpeki seigi, meaning "perfect justice") written in place of the word "justice" that is normally seen on Marine coats. Under his cape, he wears an long and extravagant jacket with shiny light blue, dark blue, and gold designs that expose his chest underneath. The insides and the cuffs of the jacket are white. He also wears blue pants and tall tan boots, as well as a blue collar around his neck. He holds his sword on his left side.[1]


Balzac is obsessed with his appearance and has his subordinates comb his hair and hold a mirror for him. This would go in line with his motto of "perfect justice", which would involve him being obsessed with making anything, even his appearance, perfect. Balzac has a habit of striking poses as if he is a model being photographed.[1]

Balzac created the Prisoner Unit using prisoners and guards from Impel Down and devised a strategy to destroy the Straw Hat Pirates. He and his subordinates Comb and Glass went to set a trap for the Straw Hat Pirates on Maze Island as they were traveling to the Pirates Festival. They called Admiral Kizaru to relay their plan before confronting the pirate crew. Balzac led his subordinates and the Prisoner Unit in battle against them, but he was defeated by Luffy when the young pirate activated Gear 4: Boundman and hit him with Gomu Gomu no King Kong Gun.[1]
