Design[edit | edit source]
It is a giant black motorcycle with three wheels and the armored head of a rhino. It is very powerful, capable of barreling through multiple enemies, and with sufficient momentum, it managed to topple Big Mom. It has the trademark star on the two back wheels. It is made of Wapometal and can "dock" with the Brachio Tank V to form the Iron Pirate General Franky.

History[edit | edit source]
Fish-Man Island Arc[edit | edit source]
When the New Fish-Man Pirates' Hyper Toxin Squadron tried to poison Nico Robin, Franky drove the motorcycle out to run down the squadron, having immunity from the pricks and poison. A giant fish-man tried to smash Franky and the bike with a giant flail, but was taken down by another new addition to the Soldier Dock, the Brachio Tank V. After both vehicles were caught in a pitfall made by Daruma, Franky took them both over, and "docked" them to form Iron Pirate General Franky.
Wano Country Arc[edit | edit source]
When the Straw Hats Pirates disembarked on Onigashima during the raid on Kaido, Franky drove the Kurosai FR-U IV with Brook riding on it. When the two later arrived on the Live State, Franky ran over Big Mom's face with the back wheel of the motorcycle.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The name FR-U means General Franky no Ude (フランキー将軍の腕 Furankī Shōgun no Ude?, literally meaning "General Franky's Arms").
