Charlotte Nusstorte is the 12th son and 21st child of the Charlotte Family and the eldest triplet brother of Basskarte and Dosmarche. He is also an officer of the Big Mom Pirates and serves as Totto Land's Minister of Transport (運輸大臣 Un'yu Daijin?), governing over Package Island.
Nusstorte is a large man with a massive head compared to the rest of his body. He has a very thick mustache and wears a pair of sunglasses. He also wears a purple commodore jacket with gold and green epaulettes and a large indigo bicorne with a face that has an identical mustache. In comparison, his head and bicorne together are nearly the same height as the rest of his body. He is also seen with a brown tobacco pipe and carries his sword behind his back.
Since Nusstorte was willing to take part in Big Mom's plan to assassinate the Vinsmoke Family, he can be considered very loyal to his family and crew. Furthermore, this would display his brutal nature in that he had no qualms about killing others for the benefit of his family. Likewise, his invasion of the Germa Kingdom with his 10,000 men army shows that he is ruthless and willing to destroy all those that stand in the way of the Big Mom Pirates.
Abilities and Powers
Nusstorte is considerably powerful as an officer of an Emperor-led crew as he was entrusted to lead a 10,000 strong army to invade the Germa Kingdom and destroy its scientifically advanced military. Both Charlotte Mont-d'Or and Charlotte Oven were certain that Nusstorte would be successful in stealing their cloning technology, but, in reality, he was not strong enough to defeat the Vinsmoke Family.
Nusstorte generally wields a large cutlass.
In the anime, he was shown fighting with his cutlass with enough skill to temporarily clash with Sanji and Niji. The anime also revealed that his hat Homie can attack by blowing hard enough to create a tornado and spitting needles.
- Nusstorte Tokusei Tatsumaki Decoration (ヌストルテ特製竜巻デコレーション Nusutorute Tokusei Tatsumaki Dekorēshon?, literally meaning "Nusstorte Special Tornado Decoration"): Nusstorte's hat Homie blows out air with enough power to create a tornado that lifts up and traps his opponent, then spits out a barrage of needles at them. Nusstorte considers this attack his trump card.
Concludes non-canon section.
Four Emperors Saga
Whole Cake Island Arc
After the reports broke out that Straw Hat Luffy had supposedly escaped and was running amok, Nusstorte was summoned to Mont-d'Or's meeting regarding the current status of the Sanji Retrieval Team on Whole Cake Island.
Nusstorte later attended the Tea Party where he was seated next to Dosmarche. As the announcer announced the commencement of the wedding ceremony, Nusstorte watched as Sanji and Pudding made their entrance. However, the assassination failed to go as planned and, to Nusstorte's horror, several Luffys suddenly emerged from the wedding cake.
Afterwards, Nusstorte took part in the siege on the Big Father Castle activated by Bege, where the Straw Hats, the Germa 66, and the Fire Tank Pirates were hiding. He then looked on as Big Mom attacked the castle and when Bege deactivated his Big Father form, Nusstorte was among those who fired at the alliance before the Vinsmoke Family blocked their shots. Afterwards, he watched as Katakuri stopped Caesar in his path right before he was about to escape with Bege.
Just as their enemies were about to be defeated, the Tamatebako dropped to the base of Whole Cake Chateau and the bomb detonated, causing the entire castle to collapse with everyone on it. The Big Mom Pirates, however, were saved when Streusen used his ability to turn the whole castle into cake. The Big Mom Pirates then split up their forces to pursue their enemies, with Nusstorte, Dosmarche, and Basskarte leading a squad to chase after the Vinsmokes and invade the Germa Kingdom.
Ultimately, Nusstorte and his squad were defeated by the Vinsmokes. An unconscious Nusstorte was then held by the neck by Niji to impersonate his voice while reporting to Mont-d'Or about the "defeat" of the Germa. With the Big Mom Pirates deceived into believing that their army had won, Nusstorte and his siblings were then tossed into the sea. When the Germa Fleet appeared off Cacao Island, Mont-d'Or tried contacting Nusstorte to find out what had happened. However, there was no response from Nusstorte, who laid unconscious in the sea.

Anime and Manga Differences
Additional scenes involving Nusstorte were shown in the anime. Among those scenes were when the anime established that Nusstorte was engaging in battle with Sanji while some of his siblings prepared to kill the Germa 66. However, the manga never shows this and it remains unknown what Nusstorte was doing following the destruction of the wedding cake. Furthermore, Nusstorte's invasion of the Germa Kingdom is shown in the anime and he is seen fighting with Niji.
During the Big Mom Pirates' assault on Wano Country, Nusstorte is not seen in the manga accompanying his mother. He is only seen alongside his siblings in the anime.
- His name comes from Bündner Nusstorte or Engadiner Nusstorte, a nut filled pastry. That follows the Big Mom Pirates and Charlotte Family food themed names.
- His appearance may be modeled after the mascot of the Cap'n Crunch cereal brand.
