Largo is an anime-only character. He is the captain of the Amigo Pirates, a crew specialized in capturing and trapping creatures. He was offered to become the leader of the 51st division of Shiki's pirate crew, but he needed to first capture a rogue creation of Indigo's.
Largo is a tall, stereotypical Mexican-looking man. He has brown hair and a thin mustache. His chin and nose are quite long as well. He's always seen with a rather sleepy look on his face, and is seen wearing little pale green earrings on each of his ears. He wears a purple poncho with colored edges and a extra-wide brimmed sombrero, and carries a guitar with him, either in his hands or hanging from his back. He is basically dressed like a mariachi: he sports an unbuttoned jacket with matching pants, looser near the end, held up by a simple belt, pointed boots, and a light-red foulard around his neck.
|— Largo's cruelty.|
Largo is a Mexican stereotype who laments while playing his guitar. He often uses Hispanic terms such as "amor" (Spanish for "love") and "señor" (Spanish for "mister") to men and "señorita" (Spanish for "miss") to women in his speech. He also has a habit of taking siestas randomly at the most inappropriate of times. Despite this being an inconvenience to the rest of the Amigo Pirates, he is said to get really angry if he is awoken from any of his untimely siestas. He is also cruel and sadistic, as shown when he threatened to exterminate all the people in Little East Blue if they did not hand Boss over, and showed disappointment when the latter joined the fight.
Like many other characters, Largo has his own unique laughter style, shik-shik-shik, that almost sounds like sobbing.
Largo seems to have an amiable relationship with his crew. His second-in-command, Corto, seems to be apologetic in taking the initiative of making an opening speech. However, Largo does tend to take an unexpected siesta at times, to which annoys the crew and at the same time incite fear, as the members had to stop Corto from waking up their captain, knowing full well of his wrath. Largo felt genuinely sad when Corto was defeated.
Largo deeply respects Shiki as a strong and influential pirate. Because of this respect, Largo wants to join Shiki's crew and become division commander. He decides to capture Boss, an escaped specimen created by Indigo, to please the pirate captain and claim his spot in the crew. On the other hand, Shiki saw Largo's defeat and arrest as nothing that would hinder his master plan.
Straw Hat Pirates
Largo originally thought that the Straw Hats were weak prey and found their desire to help Boss amusing. After he caught Luffy, Zoro, and Sanji, he insulted their strength and found their resistance annoying. When Luffy was fighting him and beating him, he became very angry at the young pirate and felt that his pride was injured.
Abilities and Powers
Even without his Devil Fruit, Largo is still a formidable fighter. He's very resistant and resilient, as he handled getting hit by a combo attack of Sanji and Gear Second Luffy, acting like it never happened. He's also incredibly fast and agile, enough to avoid Luffy's Gear Second attacks, known for the amazing speed at which they are performed. He's also quite adept at playing his guitar and singing. He can also summon his ship merely by whistling.
- Further information: Ami Ami no Mi
Largo ate the Ami Ami no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows him to create nets. The nets he creates are made of a very sticky material. They are also very durable and have high tensile strength. With this power, Largo claims that he can capture anything with a success rate of 120%.
He can give his nets the properties of different materials by ingesting said materials. This includes materials such as metal, allowing him to create cage-like nets and barbed wire nets. He can also create nets by swallowing boiling water, and even fire, allowing him to attack with nets made from these dangerous elements.
In addition to creating nets, he can transform his body into a net. This, allows him to soften blunt force attacks by displacing the physical force evenly throughout his body, rendering them useless. Furthermore, by transforming himself into a net, he is able to trap a person inside his body.
Summit War Saga
Little East Blue Arc
Largo was first seen on board the Amigo Pirates' submarine, lamenting the state of the world's future. The crew then receives a call from one of Gold Lion Shiki's men, offering the pirates a spot in Shiki's fleet as the 51st division, but only if they could complete a task first: the capture of the giant beetle Boss, which had fled from Shiki's hideout.
The crew lands on the shores of the settlement Little East Blue, where Boss is located. Unfortunately, Largo decides to take a siesta, which he hates being woken up from, so his younger brother Corto leads the expedition to capture Boss. The crew menace the islanders, but the Straw Hat Pirates happen to be visiting, and fight back. However, Largo awakens from his siesta and reveals his Devil Fruit power, capturing Luffy, Zoro, and Sanji, and almost capturing Boss before Luffy manages to free himself.
While the other Straw Hats help the villagers fight back against Corto and the Amigo Pirates, Luffy fights Largo one-on-one on the island's beach. During their fight, Largo manages to capture Luffy again and intends to turn him in for his bounty, but Luffy manages to free himself and finishes their fight by smashing Largo into his own ship with Gear Third.
After all of the commotion finally settles down, Largo is seen incarcerated by the citizens along with the rest of the Amigo Pirates.
