The Gecko Pirates were the former pirate crew of Gecko Moria.[1]

Crew Strength

My subordinates were known far and wide, so why did I lose them all?! I lost my crew because they were all alive!
— Moria[2]

According to Moria, his subordinates were greatly renowned and skilled.[2] Moria himself was said to have been powerful enough to compete against Kaidou.[3] However, the crew eventually suffered a complete defeat at the hands of Kaidou and his crew.[4] Moria later came to blame the loss on his crew's mortality.[2]



Twenty-four years ago, Gecko Moria was present at the execution of Pirate King Gold Roger and witnessed the opening of the Great Age of Pirates.[5]

One year later, the Gecko Pirates had made it to the New World and clashed with the Beasts Pirates in the Ringo region of Wano Country.[1]


Ultimately, this conflict ended with the a vast majority of the crew being killed, with Moria himself being the only known survivor. The traumatic nature of this incident would drastically change Moria's outlook on piracy, and played a major role in his decision to mainly comprise his next crew of zombies with no real sentimental value to him.[2]
