Hotei is the former captain of the Mimawarigumi, a samurai police force in Wano Country that served the shogun Kurozumi Orochi until he was deposed by Kaido.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Hotei is a man of above-average height with long puffy light hair that is gathered into a ponytail down his back. He wears a pair of sunglasses that cover his eyes, and has a small amount of beard stubble on his chin. He wears a light-colored kimono with dark circle patterns that leaves his hairy chest exposed, dark-colored bottoms, and a cloak with a dark jagged design on the bottom.

PersonalityEdit

While under the command of Kurozumi Orochi, Hotei served the shogun loyally, showing no disapproval at the corrupt administration. However, Hotei was not faithful to Orochi as an individual, as once the shogun was beheaded by Kaido, the Mimawarigumi captain unhesitatingly switched his allegiance to the latter, when given the option of submission or death, going against the standard samurai code of loyalty.[2] He seems to greatly enjoy the annual banquet held at Kaido's lair during the Fire Festival.[3]

Abilities and PowersEdit

As the captain of the Mimawarigumi, Hotei commanded a legion of 5000 powerful samurai until the group was disbanded following Orochi's deposition.[2]

WeaponsEdit

Hotei wields two swords, though has yet to be seen using them in combat.[1]

HistoryEdit

Four Emperors SagaEdit

Wano Country ArcEdit

After the Straw Hat Pirates escaped after instigating a fight in the Flower Capital during Shimotsuki Yasuie's execution, Hotei and the Mimawarigumi began patrolling the capital streets to protect Kurozumi Orochi and capture the pirates.[1]

A week later, the Mimawarigumi accompanied Orochi to Onigashima to party with Kaido and the Beasts Pirates during the Fire Festival. Before heading out, Fukurokuju told Hotei and the samurai to inform everyone that Kyoshiro would be looking over the Flower Capital during the event, and Hotei remarked that the yakuza boss was unlucky to have to miss out. Upon setting sail, Orochi decided to start drinking and Hotei advised him to wait until they got to Kaido's lair, but Orochi replied that Kaido was probably drinking already.[3]

While the Golden Kagura festivities were occurring, Hotei was seen drinking alongside Orochi.[4] Later, Kaido came to the Performance Stage to announce his "New Onigashima Project". When Orochi protested this project, Kaido beheaded him. He then gave the Mimawarigumi and Orochi Oniwabanshu the ultimatum to join his pirate crew or die, and Hotei pledged the Mimawarigumi's service to him.[2]

As the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance waged an all-out war in Kaido's stronghold, Hotei noticed Fukurokuju wandering off somewhere.[5]

TriviaEdit

  • Hotei is possibly named after one of the Seven Lucky Gods in Japanese mythology, much like several members of the Orochi Oniwabanshu including their leader Fukurokuju.
