History

Fishman Island Arc

Hoe first appeared carrying Neptune to the front of Pappug's shop, so the king can invite the Straw Hat Pirates to Ryugu Palace.[1] He carried his king back to the palace while Megalo carried the Straw Hats.[4]

Later, when the New Fishman Pirates and Flying Pirates attacked Ryugu Kingdom in a coup d'etat, and Hody Jones flooded the entire palace by shattering the walls, Neptune could not move due to his strained back and performing a technique that made it worse. Hoe immediately came and took Neptune and the Straw Hats (Zoro, Usopp, and Brook). Before Hoe can carry them out of the palace, Hody grabbed Neptune by the tail, preventing Neptune and the Straw Hats' escape. This forced Hoe and the guards to leave without their king. They immediately fled to go look for prince Fukaboshi.[5]

Hoe Escape

Hoe carrying Neptune and his sons to safety.

Hoe later arrives at Gyoncorde Plaza with Franky and the Thousand Sunny (in blimp mode). After the Sunny fires its Gaon Cannon at the New Fishman Pirates, Hoe quickly retrieves Neptune and the princes and carries them away from the plaza.[6]

He was later seen somewhere in the island safe with Neptune and the princes, while the former was giving a short speech about Noah's importance.

After the battle for Fishman Island ended and the New Fishman Pirates defeated, Hoe carries Neptune back to the plaza to deal with the aftermath.

Trivia

  • His name comes from "hoēru" (ホエール?), the Japanese pronunciation of "whale", which seems to be all he can say.
