Vice Admiral Dalmatian[4][3] is one of the many Marine vice admirals to have participated in the Battle of Marineford.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

With his Devil Fruit powers active, Dalmatian takes the form of a muscular, bipedal dalmatian-human hybrid. The top part of his head from his nose up and his arms and legs are that of a dalmatian: a white dog with black spots all over the body. He also has a long tail. However, the bottom half of his face is human just like most of Zoan users, and he has a blonde-white beard on a wide chin. His torso and neck also seem to remain human. He has yet to be seen in his default human or full dalmatian forms.[citation needed]

As a marine recruit, he had a standard marine cap and his face only had stubble on his chin with his Devil Fruit powers active.[citation needed]

Like all other vice admirals and other high ranking officers, he wears a double breasted suit, dress shirt, and a tie, with a Marine jacket draped loosely over his shoulders like a cape. His suit, in particular, is dark green in color. He wears a light red shirt underneath, with a darker red tie.[citation needed]

Personality[edit | edit source]

As a Marine, Dalmatian has a strong sense of justice. It is unknown whether he believes in moral justice or absolute justice.[citation needed]

Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]

As a vice admiral, Dalmatian is capable of commanding a Buster Call alongside four other vice admirals. He also has command over lower-ranking subordinates.[citation needed]

Devil Fruit[edit | edit source]

Dalmatian has eaten an unnamed Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a dalmatian. Using this, he can increase his fighting abilities and physical strength greatly, and can combine it with his Rokushiki style.[citation needed]

Rokushiki[edit | edit source]

Dalmatian stabs Luffy using Shigan.

Dalmatian has access to the Rokushiki martial arts style and he has demonstrated the techniques Soru and Shigan, allowing him to move at incredible speed and pierce his opponents with his finger, respectively. The powers of his physical techniques are further enhanced by his Devil Fruit transformation. His Shigan has also been enhanced by the sharp nail point added to his finger, allowing him to pierce Luffy's rubber body.[5]

Haki[edit | edit source]

Further information: Haki

It was stated that all vice admirals possess Haki,[6] so Dalmatian can also use the ability.[citation needed]

Dalmatian vs. the Decalvan Brothers.

In Episode 476, he made an additional comment absent from the manga that Luffy being a mere rookie was the main reason why he could not defeat the vice admirals.

Also in the anime version of the Marineford Arc, he is seen fighting the Decalvan Brothers.
