Appearance[edit | edit source]
Brogy is a giant who dresses in a Viking costume, which consists of a red overall with golden button straps, fur linings, a leather strap around his right shoulder and another as a belt, yellow pants with black stripes and fur linings at the bottom, yellow shoes, and a red helmet with two horns. Brogy has a blond beard shaped like an axe's blade, beady eyes, a wide grin, and a pig-like nose.

Personality[edit | edit source]
Like Dorry, Brogy is a good natured giant, however, his pride can sometimes get the best of him. He is a firm believer of the customs of fighting from his homeland and follows them with much honor. He would follow these even if he were severely wounded. Despite seemingly defeating Dorry after so long, Brogy did not feel any happiness when he sensed something was wrong during their battle that Mr. 3 interfered with.
Brogy has his own unique laugh: "Gaba" (i.e. Gababababababa!).
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Dorry[edit | edit source]
Brogy is Dorry's best friend. However because of the argument they had 100 years ago, they were engaged in a life and death battle against each other as per their homeland's customs. Despite this however, they are still the best of friends and deeply respect each other. Dorry and Brogy's competitive relationship with one another is comparable to that of Zoro and Sanji.
Straw Hat Pirates[edit | edit source]
Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]
Brogy has a bounty of 100,000,000 on his head, an indication of his danger. Moreover, like other giants, he possesses superhuman strength and resistance. However, having been one of the two captains of the Giant Warrior Pirates, he was extremely strong even compared to the other individuals of his race and had authority over one of the strongest crews in the world. As a demonstration of his strength, he fought on a par with Dorry for a hundred years and together with the latter he managed to defeat such great creatures that not even the other giants of their crew would have been able to capture. The strength of the two giants is in fact such that Galdino, a member of Baroque Works who is capable of defeating a pirate with a bounty of 42,000,000, said he could in no way defeat them without resorting to deception, even with the help from Miss Golden Week, Mr. 5 and Miss Valentine.
Physical Abilities[edit | edit source]
Brogy is also capable of easily killing the dinosaurs of Little Garden, prey he hunts daily, even remaining virtually impassive to their bite. Together with Dorry he also managed to pierce the Island Eater, despite the great distance that separated them. Even Luffy, after seeing them perform this feat, stated that the two were monstrously powerful.
Weapons[edit | edit source]
In combat, Brogy used a shield and a battle axe called the Bruiser Axe. With it he can lauch a Flying Slash Attack, powerful enough to kill the Island Eater. However, after a hundred years of battle, the blade lost its sharpness and eventually broke.
History[edit | edit source]
Past[edit | edit source]
Brogy, along with Dorry, were once two of the most feared pirates in the world as no one could bring them down. One day on a hunting trip, each had slayed a massive Sea King. Then, while they were celebrating their great catches, a little girl asked them both which Sea King was bigger. They could not agree on which one was bigger, so, as per the rules of Elbaf, they started to duel on Little Garden.
Little Garden Arc[edit | edit source]
One hundred years passed and their Sea Kings' corpses had turned to bones. They continued the battle every time the volcano on the island exploded, the duel always ending in a draw.
One day the Straw Hat Pirates arrived on the island on their way to Alabasta with Vivi. After Luffy and Vivi went to explore, and Sanji and Zoro went to find food, Nami and Usopp were left on the Going Merry to fend for themselves. Meanwhile Brogy was exploring and came across the Going Merry and scared Nami and Usopp half to death. Nami and Usopp thought Brogy was going to eat them but he just wanted some alcohol, which they gave him. As a dinosaur stumbled upon them, Brogy sliced its head off, frightening Nami and Usopp further, who then played dead, only Brogy thought they had fainted.
He then brought them to his home and started cooking for himself. Usopp and Nami panicked and ran away when he was not looking and ended up being chased by other carnivorous animals. They were saved by Brogy, who in turn provided them a large amount of dinosaur meat, but Usopp and Nami, who were still scared, tried to wait it out until the Log Pose set but soon found out that it would take a whole year for the log to lock onto the next island.
After the volcano exploded, Brogy and Dorry went to fight each other. After yet another tie, the two giants returned to their camps to relax and recuperate. Elsewhere, Dorry was defeated due to the injuries he had suffered from a bomb explosion that was hidden in rum he was consuming. Brogy fought Dorry and defeated him. He rejoiced in victory after years of fighting. Mr. 3 appeared and called out to Brogy that he was the one who helped him to defeat Dorry. Brogy moved to attack Mr. 3 but was suddenly held captive by Mr. 3's wax, which had immobilized Brogy's feet.
Later, Brogy learned that Dorry had survived the fatal blow. Dorry believed that their weapons had grown old and weak over the years and were now unable to cause fatal blows. The duo was reminded of why they began their battle and headed to the ocean to bid their new friends, the Straw Hats, farewell. They warned the pirates to continue heading straight, no matter what as the crew disembarked from the isle with their newly obtained Log Pose for Alabasta.
From the Decks of the World[edit | edit source]
Brogy was still dueling it out with Dorry on Little Garden with no end in sight. Newspapers were flying in the background, suggesting that they have read about the Straw Hats' return.
Major Battles[edit | edit source]
- Brogy vs. Dorry (at least 73,467 times)
Translation and Dub Issues[edit | edit source]
So far, Oda has provided two versions of his name: Brogy was seen in the manga and later Burogy appeared in the databooks.
They are edited out in the English dub, by 4Kids Entertainment, along with the entire Little Garden story arc. However, in the made-for-U.S. game One Piece: Grand Adventure, Brogy replaced Big Pan in the Davy Back Fight stage, which was renamed to a generic pirate ship.

- Brogy's favorite foods are beer and Triceratops meat.
- Brogy's helmet resembles the Waterloo Helmet, an ornamental helm of Celtic design.
