Due to his actions and role, he is a minor antagonist in the Wano Country Arc.
Like the other Numbers, Hatcha is an enormous humanoid much larger than a typical giant, standing at a height of 66.8 meters. Like his fellow Numbers and most of the Beasts Pirates in general, Hatcha has a pair of horns atop his head. While some of the other Numbers appear to have more animal-like features based on their silhouettes, Hatcha looks very humanoid, having peach skin, a set of rounded teeth and indigo hair arranged in a bowl cut. On the left side of his abdomen is a tattoo of the daiji "捌", which means eight.
He wears a yellow track-jacket that remains unzipped, leaving his bare chest exposed, dark pants and light shoes with laces. He also possesses a pair of oval sunglasses.
Like the other Numbers, Hatcha likes to drink, and in his debut he was shown to be quite drunk. He seems to like fighting and quickly took the opportunity to attack Luffy, Zoro, Kid, and Killer when they broke into Kaidou's fortress, with his careless use of force resulting in collateral damage and members of his own crew going down. This recklessness caused his crewmates to try and stop him from attacking further, and Kid noted that they seemed to have trouble controlling him. Hatcha is attracted to the General Franky, seeming to view it as a toy and preferring to chase after it rather than fight his crew's enemies.
Abilities and Powers
Due to his large size, Hatcha is extremely powerful, wielding his club to strike heavy blows. After somewhat sobering up, Hatcha was able to lift his fellow Number Jaki over his head with ease.
Hatcha wields a massive, spiked club resembling a morning star, suiting his size. With casual swings he can easily crush, as well as blow large holes into thick layers of, stone and wooden floor.
Over 20 years ago, Hatcha was a subject in an experiment on Punk Hazard that attempted to recreate the ancient giants. The experiment was a failure, but Hatcha and his fellow test subjects were recruited by Kaidou. They began residing on Onigashima and joined Kaidou's crew, the Beasts Pirates, as a group called the Numbers.
Four Emperors Saga
Wano Country Arc
On the day of the Fire Festival, Hatcha and the Numbers took part in the Beasts Pirates' Golden Kagura festivities. Later, the enemy pirates Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Eustass Kid, and Killer were spotted and identified in the fortress, and when Queen gave the pirates permission to kill them, a drunken Hatcha stepped in and wildly attacked with his club, causing heavy collateral damage as his crewmates told him to stop.
After he sobered up, Hatcha began obsessively chasing after General Franky, as Franky immediately left to head outside the Skull Dome per Jinbe's instructions to draw Hatcha away. Hatcha chased Franky to where Yamato, Shinobu, Momonosuke, and Sasaki's Armored Corps were, and tried attacking Franky with his club, causing the floor to fall out from under them. However, Yamato unleashed a powerful long-range attack that struck Hatcha under the chin, knocking him out.
