The Charlotte Decuplets are the 36-40th sons and 30-34th daughters of the Charlotte Family, making up the 65-74th children in the family, and are all officers of the Big Mom Pirates. They are the largest group of Big Mom's children born in a single birth.

They all possess purple hair that goes down to their necks, although each of their hairstyles is marginally different. They have small beady eyes, and a button noses. They all wear pink suits over red shirts, and a colored bowler hats. These hats are red (Newichi), yellow (Newji), green (Newsan), lilac (Newshi), and blue (Newgo)(originally there was another yellow). Four of them also wear yellow ties.

Personalities[edit | edit source]
The decuplets are all loyal to their family and crew, as they have been seen joining Big Mom's army to avenge their fallen crewmate and brother Cracker, going to crew meetings, and joining Oven's force on Cacao Island to take down the Straw Hats.
The male decuplets seem to be more business-minded, as Newshi showed his reservations about gathering excessive amounts of strength to take on the Straw Hat Pirates. In contrast, the sisters seem to be more jovial, as they delighted in the atmosphere during the occupation of Cacao Island and anticipated having fun while standing guard. They idolize Katakuri, but one of the brothers was also open to the possibility of Monkey D. Luffy defeating Katakuri, prompting Allmeg to hit him on the head. They all became vengeful when they learned that Luffy defeated their brother and tried to attack the former.
Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]
As officers of the Big Mom Pirates, the Decuplets have authority over lower-ranking members of their crew. The sisters' capabilities are unknown, but they are presumably strong as they are officers of an Emperor-led crew.
Rokushiki[edit | edit source]
Weapons[edit | edit source]
Each decuplet carries a scythe with two spikes at the end of the blade, and one of the brothers managed to shatter the ground when he slammed his scythe into it. One of the male decuplets was also seen using a gun when shooting at the Vinsmoke Family. In the anime, the male decuplets are shown using bazookas to try to shoot Sanji down.
Anime Only Attacks[edit | edit source]
- Ichi! Ji! San! Shi! Go! (一 二 三 四 五 Ichi! Ni! San! Shi! Gō!?, literally meaning "One! Two! Three! Four! Five!"): Each of the male decuplets take a turn attacking an enemy with a weapon of some kind, striking in their birth order. This attack pattern has only been seen in the anime.
Devil Fruit[edit | edit source]
- Further information: Gocha Gocha no Mi
Charlotte Newshi ate the Gocha Gocha no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit which allows him to fuse with his nine decuplet siblings and transform into a giant lanky figure with an enlarged scythe.
History[edit | edit source]
Past[edit | edit source]
Eighteen years ago, the decuplets were born to Big Mom, setting the record for her largest single birth.
Whole Cake Island Arc[edit | edit source]
After Charlotte Cracker was defeated by Monkey D. Luffy, at least two of the male decuplets joined Big Mom's enraged army to take out Luffy and Nami. After the two were captured, one of the decuplets watched as Amande acquired Lola's Vivre Card from Nami.
Concludes non-canon section.
The next night, the decuplets reported to Cacao Island along with many of their siblings and crewmates to join Oven's battalion in preparation to ambush Luffy and the Straw Hats. While the brothers remarked on the ridiculous size of their forces, the sisters were looking forward to what was going to happen, and Nutmeg hugged Oven. As the arranged time for the Straw Hats to arrive drew near, the decuplets brought out their scythes, and one of the brothers wondered if Luffy would defeat Katakuri. This caused Allmeg to hit him with her scythe as Oven scoffed at the idea. The pirates discussed how Luffy would escape and noted that Charlotte Brûlée would likely get captured, with Allmeg calling her clumsy. With five minutes to go, the Big Mom Pirates prepared to ambush Luffy.
Pekoms came out of the mirror with a captive Brûlée, but the Big Mom Pirates quickly discovered that he was hiding Luffy, and one of the brothers decuplets raced to attack Luffy with his crewmates. When Luffy took to the air and Sanji saved him from Raisin, Fuyumeg was surprised when her brother was defeated. Shortly after, three of the brothers accompanied their brother Yuen into the sky to confront Luffy and Sanji, while Newshi helped his crewmates attack Pekoms. However, the skirmish was interrupted when Germa 66 arrived at Cacao Island. As Sanji and Luffy made their escape with Germa's assistance, the decuplets were in utter shock once they heard about Katakuri's defeat at Luffy's hands.

Anime and Manga Differences[edit | edit source]
In the manga, one of the male decuplets was seen attacking Pekoms while the latter was restrained. Meanwhile, some of the other brothers attacked Sanji and Luffy together with Yuen. In the anime, the brothers attack Sanji and Luffy without Yuen until Pekoms fends them off. The sisters then fight Pekoms but are beaten back as well.
The decuplets merging together is shown onscreen in the anime and their clash with the Vinsmoke siblings is shown as well.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In keeping with the Charlotte Family's food-themed names, Nutmeg is named after the spice of the same name, whilst Newshi takes his name from the Japanese word for Butterfat (乳脂肪 Nyūshibō?). The remaining decuplets derive their names from puns on the name of these two siblings:
- Nutmeg is read as natsumegu in Japanese romaji, and natsu is the Japanese word for "summer". The prefixes of the other daughters' names come from the words for the three other seasons (aki is "autumn", fuyu is "winter" and haru is "spring"), as well as "all" for all of the seasons.
- The suffixes of the sons' names follow a numeric theme (ichi for "one", ji for "two", san for "three", shi for "four", and go for "five") that matches their birth order.
- Allmeg may also be a portmanteau of the spice Allspice and nutmeg.
- Newgo was ranked by his older siblings as their second-favorite younger brother, behind only Anglais.
- Taking into account the visuals of the Decuplets in One Piece Magazine Vol.5, the anime misidentifies Newsan and Newshi.
- The anime mistakenly identifies Newshi, the fourth male decuplet, as Newsan, his third twin brother, and vice-versa.
