Making their Mark
Kotatsu was a freak show animal who was captured by poachers. Ace freed him from the poacher's trap, and Kotatsu joined the Spade Pirates to travel with Ace as he made a name for himself. He helped fight off a group of bounty hunters, and, when Isuka infiltrated the crew's ship, he surrounded the Marine Ensign alongside his crewmates. However, she easily fended them off. After the confrontation, the crew reached Sabaody Archipelago. While they waited for their ship to be coated, Kotatsu and his crewmates explored the island and secretly read Deuce's adventure diary. Unlike the rest of his crewmates, he did not laugh at his poor writing skills.
After Ace and Jinbe tied, Kotatsu and the other Spade Pirates defended their captain against Edward Newgate and were easily defeated. They were then taken into the Whitebeard Pirates like their captain. Kotatsu has not been seen since his joining.
