Benn Beckman[5] is the first mate and an officer of the Red Hair Pirates.[6][7]


Beckman is a tall man, standing at a height of 206 cm.[3] His hair was jet light brown (black in the anime) and pulled back in a pony tail 12 years ago in Monkey D. Luffy's hometown;[1] in the current storyline, his hair has turned gray and is cut short. He is never seen without his rifle nearby or a cigarette in his mouth.[1] He also now has a large, X-shaped scar on his left temple.[8]

His outfit has changed very little over the years since his first appearance; he now wears a black, v-neck shirt with three quarter sleeves (whereas he is previously seen wearing a short-sleeved shirt of a similar color and design) along with loose pants (originally of a dark green color, but presently gray) with numerous pockets on them, tucked inside his buckled boots. Like most of the other Red Hair Pirates, he wears a sash around his waist, to which he attaches his rifle in a pistol-like fashion. The only thing added to his attire is his spiral-patterned cloak.[8]

Beckman appears to be a lot less fun-loving and a lot more relaxed than the other members of the crew are, acting as the level-headed member. He, Lucky Roux, and Yasopp are some of Shanks's most trusted crew members, as they are always seen when the Red Hair Pirates are featured, usually when something crucial happens.[1]

At times, Beckman seems amused at the actions of his captain, such as panicking when Luffy is taken[9] or getting even more drunk when he has already drunk a lot before and when Mihawk brings the news of Luffy's first bounty.[10] He is the first to speak out among the crew whenever they appear. He also seems to be the first to ask questions about the crew's situation, such as whether the World Government would try to stop them from seeing Whitebeard.[8]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Beckman has the highest IQ of anyone in the East Blue.[11] He is considered by the Marines to be one of the strongest members of the Red Haired Pirates, being one of Shanks's officers. During the Battle of Marineford, Admiral Kizaru chose not to fight him, even though he had just fought the First Commander of Whitebeard's crew and Whitebeard himself.[12] However, it should be noted that Kizaru did continue his attack on Luffy when Beckman came down to join the rest of the crew.[13]

Beckman also single-handedly defeated Higuma's crew of mountain bandits, afterwards telling Higuma to bring a warship as backup if he wanted to fight them.[14]

When the Red Hair Pirates arrived at Marineford to stop the war, Beckman was able to climb on to a Marine ship's mast and sit on it, all the while pointing his flintlock at Kizaru, a Kenbunshoku Haki user, without the latter noticing.[12]


Beckman carries a flintlock rifle with him, but he has yet to fire it, instead using it as a club on Higuma's men[14] and as a threat against Kizaru.[12]



He is originally from the North Blue.[3] How Beckman came to be a member of the Red Hair Pirates is unknown.

Romance DawnEdit

Red Hair Pirates at Foosha Village

The Red Hair Pirates in Foosha Village.

In Foosha Village, Beckman tried to explain Shanks's decision on refusing to take Monkey D. Luffy with him to sea. Unfortunately, he found that his captain left him in somewhat of an awkward situation, since he seemed to enjoy mocking the fact that Luffy could not swim, leaving Beckman to explain that Shanks really was not that happy all the time.[15] Later on, after the Higuma incident, Beckman and Lucky Roux took on Higuma's men. He shocked Higuma by taking out every last bandit, leaving only Higuma standing.[14]

East Blue SagaEdit

Loguetown ArcEdit

When Dracule Mihawk informed the crew about the up-and-coming Luffy, Beckman was surprised at this fact. With his crew, they celebrated and invited the Shichibukai to the party despite Shanks and his crew already being worn out from another party the night before.[10]

Since Vice Admiral Momonga mentioned that the Red Hair Pirates had intercepted Kaido, it can be assumed that Beckman helped in this interception.[17]

During the Battle of Marineford, Beckman prevented Admiral Kizaru from attacking Luffy and Trafalgar Law, telling Kizaru not to move a muscle while aiming his gun at him.[12] Later, the Red Hair Pirates left the battlefield peacefully, taking Ace's and Whitebeard's bodies with them.[18]

Beckman later attended Ace and Whitebeard's funeral somewhere in the New World.[19]
