King is an extremely tall and large man, appearing to stand taller than the very large Jack. He wears mostly dark clothes that completely cover his body, including a mask over his face and a spiked hat with goggles on it. He wears a buttoned jacket studded with small circles that has skull designs on its collars, pants with studded rings around them, and gloves with small spikes at the forearm. The jacket also has medium spikes coming off the shoulders. He also has a pair of large dark wings on his back resembling angel wings. Flames also appear to be emitting from the back of his head.
Like Queen, King is extremely rude and critical of his crewmates, as he constantly derided the accomplishments of Queen and Jack. However, despite their rivalry, he and Queen seem to have a mutual sense of disdain towards Jack. According to Queen, King is a pervert who loves torture.
King is extremely rude toward his crewmates, but his subordinates are loyal to him.
As one of Kaido's three right hand men, Kaido has great trust in him and his powers. In turn, King is very loyal to Kaido and willing to execute missions that are given to him. When Big Mom and her children arrive at Wano Country, King attacked and knocked her ship into the sea because of Kaido's orders.
Despite being a fellow All-Star, King seems to view Jack as incompetent as is shown when he scolds him for the low offerings of the region he's in charge of.
Abilities and PowersEdit
As an All-Star of the Beasts Pirates, King has a great amount of authority over the crew, second only to Kaido the general. Befitting his epithet, King is able to produce fire, both in his human and pteranodon forms.
King ate the Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Pteranodon, an Ancient Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a pteranodon hybrid and full pteranodon at will. This fruit gives him the ability of flight, and he can perform extremely powerful aerial attacks from mid air as shown when he toppled the Queen Mama Chanter, a gigantic ship, with enough force to throw Big Mom off.
Wano Country ArcEdit
On Onigashima, King reprimanded his fellow All-Star Jack for what had happened with the low amount of offerings from Kuri, and then asked him if he knew where to go for their next trade deal now that they could not rely on Doflamingo. While discussing it, he pointed at Queen and mentioned how Queen was already incompetent, causing the two of them to engage in an argument.
When the Big Mom Pirates attempted to climb the waterfall around Wano Country on the Queen Mama Chanter and were just about to reach the top, King flew in and attacked, causing the ship to flip over and sending Big Mom into the sea below.
- Like his fellow All-Stars Queen and Jack, King is named after the playing card rank, fitting with the card-themed names of the Beasts Pirates.
- King's epithet along with his Devil Fruit might be based on the kaiju, Rodan, a pteranodon residing in a volcano.
