Keith[3] is a monkey mink and a member of the Guardians who protect the Mokomo Dukedom at night.[1]


Keith is an average-sized monkey mink with a curled tail and brown fur. He wears a black suit with a black tie, a light-colored shirt, black pants, and a black top hat on his head. He also wears a red ascot and two black paw gauntlets on his hands.[1]


Keith is extremely loyal to the Mokomo Dukedom and their allies, as shown by him willing to fight to the death against Jack and the Beasts Pirates.[1] Even when they were poisoned by the invading pirates, Keith still chose to remain silent and did not reveal the whereabouts of Raizo, further displaying his loyalty.

Abilities and Powers

As a mink, Keith is a natural-born warrior and is capable of using Electro. As a member of the Guardians, he likely possesses above-average combat skills for a mink.[1]



Pre-Zou Arc

When Jack and the Beasts Pirates invaded the Mokomo Dukedom looking for Raizo, Keith and the Guardians raced in as night fell to fight in relief of the Inuarashi Musketeer Squad.[1] The battle lasted five days, with the Guardians fighting during the night. Jack managed to defeat the minks by exposing them to the Koro gas, leaving the minks poisoned.[4] However, two days later, some of the Straw Hat Pirates arrived on Zou just in time to prevent them from succumbing to the poison.[5]

Yonko Saga

Zou Arc

Later, Keith announced to all the Guardians that Wanda had returned with the entire Straw Hat crew.[2] Afterwards, he partied alongside the Straw Hats during their feast.[7]

When it was time for the Sanji Retrieval Team to depart, Keith and everyone else that remained watched in surprise as Luffy suddenly wrapped their group in his arms and then jumped off Zou.[8]

Concludes non-canon section.

Wano Country Arc

Keith and the Guardians later accompanied Nekomamushi to Sphinx in order to recruit Marco to their alliance with the Straw Hats, the Heart Pirates, and the Kozuki Family.[9]

Major Battles

Anime and Manga Differences

The anime expands the number of instances that Keith is seen. He was only seen during flashbacks during the Beast Pirates' invasion and not the actual Zou Arc. Although he most likely did partake in the general events that also involved the Mink Tribe and the Guardians during the Zou Arc, his presence in these events were only seen in the anime.
