Giovanni[2][3] is a zebra mink and one of the Three Inuarashi Musketeers leading the squad.


Giovanni is a tall Zebra mink with black and white patterned fur, a long neck, a long snout, and shoulder-length blond hair. He wears the Inuarashi Musketeer Squad uniform of a purple cape lined with red, a black hat with a pink plume, and brown boots. He also wears black pants, a white shirt with a frilly edge at the bottom, black gloves, a black belt with a golden buckle, an orange scarf, and a sword over his left shoulder.

Giovanni is rather stoic and far less expressive than his comrades Shishilian and Concelot.[1]

Like the other minks of the Mokomo Dukedom, Giovanni is loyal to the Kozuki Family. He is also very grateful, having volunteered to accompany the Sanji Retrieval Team.[4]

Abilities and Powers

As one of the Three Inuarashi Musketeers, Giovanni has authority over the rest of the Musketeers.

Like all minks, Giovanni is a natural-born warrior.[5] He can use Electro[6] and, during the full moon, activate a Sulong transformation.[7] As a Musketeer, Giovanni is a very powerful warrior even among the minks.[5]


Giovanni wields a rapier, which he can channel Electro through.[6]



When the Beasts Pirates, led by Jack, invaded Zou in search of Raizo, Giovanni and the rest of the Inuarashi Musketeer Squad fought against them. When dusk fell, Giovanni and the musketeers fell back to allow Nekomamushi and the Guardians to take over the battle.

The battle against the Beast Pirates lasted for five days. On the fifth day of the battle, Jack lost his patience and unleashed Caesar Clown's Koro gas, which left the Mink Tribe poisoned and drastically weakened. Giovanni, Shishilian and Concelot were among the minks crucified and tortured. The following day, Jack left Zou after hearing about Donquixote Doflamingo's defeat and capture,[8] and the minks were later saved when Sanji and his group came to Zou.[9]

Four Emperors Saga

Zou Arc

When Bariete rang the bell and spoke of the arrival of samurai, Giovanni and the rest of the minks rushed to Kurau City. When Kin'emon and Kanjuro revealed themselves, Giovanni and the minks welcomed them and revealed that Raizo was on Zou before standing proudly at having kept his presence a secret.[10] Kin'emon showed Giovanni and the other minks the crest of the Kozuki Family on his back to confirm his allegiance. When Inuarashi and Nekomamushi reluctantly called a truce for the sake of Kozuki Momonosuke, whom they recognized as their lord, Giovanni and the rest of the minks were overjoyed.[11]

When Inuarashi, Nekomamushi, the samurai, and the pirates returned from the Whale Tree with Raizo, Zou began shaking as Zunesha started crying out, throwing Giovanni and the others into a state of panic.[12] Jack had returned and was attempting to destroy Zou by killing Zunesha, who retaliated on Momonosuke's command and sank Jack's fleet with one blow, calming down Giovanni and the others in the process.[13]

Later on, Shishilian requested to accompany the Sanji retrieval team to Whole Cake Island along with Giovanni and Concelot, but was told to stay behind on Zou by Nekomamushi.[4]

Wano Country Arc

Giovanni later went with Inuarashi to Wano Country.[14]

While having a discussion with Nami, Robin, Wanda, and Carrot in Amigasa Village two days before the raid on Onigashima, the Three Inuarashi Musketeers talked about how the weather conditions could affect their chances in battle. Giovanni mentioned that the full moon would be useless if it is blocked by clouds.[15]

On the day of the Fire Festival, Giovanni joined the Straw Hats on the Thousand Sunny as they entered the battle with the Beasts Pirates.[16] After disembarking on Onigashima, Giovanni joined the group led by Kin'emon. The group reached the Pleasure Hall owned by Black Maria. As they traversed through the area, they quickly hid themselves underwater when Big Mom looked outside from one of the nearby buildings.[17] As Big Mom chased after the Brachio Tank V, Kin'emon led the rest of the force onward.[18]

After the all-out war began, the minks waiting on the roof of the Skull Dome until Kaido arrived there with the Scabbards. When Jack and a platoon arrived, the minks then transformed into their Sulong forms[7] and began decimating Jack's forces.[19]

After a fierce battle, most of the minks were wounded from their fight against Jack.[20] As Kaido created wind scythes with a roar, the wounded minks fled from the roof.[21]

Giovanni and his fellow minks later went to the fifth floor of the castle and cleared a path for Luffy, enabling him to reach the roof unhindered.[22]
