One Piece Wiki

For the bird from Treasure Wars, see Karasu (Non-Canon).

Karasu is the commander of the North Army in the Revolutionary Army.[2]


Karasu is a tall, muscular, and bald man who wears half of a plague doctor mask on his face that acts as a loudspeaker. He wears an open dark feather coat similar to those worn by the Beast Pirates that leaves his chest exposed, dark pants, and a sash around his neck. His overall attire gives him a crow-like theme and appearance.[2]

Karasu is an honorable man who despises those who attack the weak. He's also very quiet and usually talks through inaudible mumbling, thus he needs his loudspeaker mask to be heard by others. He does not appear to take kindly to people who react negatively to his mumbling, as veins bulged on his forehead in anger when Peachbeard pointed it out. However, he also tends to be forgetful at times as he forgot to turn on his speaker, resulting in his mumbling.[4]

Abilities and Powers

As an executive of the Revolutionary Army, Karasu holds a powerful position within the organization. As the commander of the North Army, he has full control over all the soldiers in it.[2]

Devil Fruit

Karasu transforming into a number of crows.

Karasu has eaten a Devil Fruit of an unknown type that allows him to turn his body and clothes into a murder of crows. In this form, he is capable of performing actions over a wide area, as shown when he stole all of the Peachbeard Pirates' swords at once. Each crow is capable of carrying an average-sized person on its back, and they are also used to deliver newspapers.[1] Karasu is also capable of talking as a crow.[5][6]

Four Emperors Saga

Levely Arc

Karasu and his fellow executives Lindbergh, Belo Betty, and Morley went to Lulusia Kingdom to protect it from the pillaging Peachbeard Pirates. When Peachbeard wondered what Karasu was saying, the executive got mad,[2] and Betty told him and Lindbergh to back up the citizens that she had encouraged into taking action.[7] Karasu transformed into crows and stole the pirates' swords, and the pirates were quickly defeated.[6] The executives then headed to Momoiro Island to meet with the rest of the army about their upcoming declaration of war on the World Nobles, and Karasu noted that he had forgotten to turn on his loudspeaker.[4]

Lindbergh and his companions hidden in Mary Geoise, ready to rescue Kuma.

After the meeting at Momoiro Island, Karasu accompanied Sabo, Lindbergh, and Morley to Red Port. There, they secretly advanced toward Mary Geoise along with several royals heading to the Levely.[8] While hiding underground, the executives discussed about saving Kuma from his enslavement to the World Nobles.[9]
