The Kurosai FR-U IV ("Black Rhino FR-U IV") is one of the newest additions to the Thousand Sunny's Soldier Dock, residing in the previously unoccupied Dock 4.[1]

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.[1] It is made of Wapometal and can "dock" with the Brachio Tank V to form the Iron Pirate General Franky.[2]

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.[1] 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.[2]

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.[3] When the two later arrived on the Live State, Franky ran over Big Mom's face with the back wheel of the motorcycle.[4]

After Franky freed the Brachio Tank V from Jaki's grasp, he docked both vehicles to form General Franky.[5]

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").
