Personality[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

Syrup Village Arc[edit | edit source]

Lionbuta was the first animal Luffy and Nami encountered on the Island of Rare Animals.[1] He was seen again with a group of animals when Gaimon waved goodbye to the departing Straw Hats.[4]

Buggy's Crew Adventure Chronicles[edit | edit source]

Lionbuta, Cocox, and Usagihebi were there to witness Buggy's crash-landing on the Island of Rare Animals and the subsequent battle between him and Gaimon.[5]

From the Decks of the World[edit | edit source]

Lionbuta was seen watching as the new inhabitant of the island, the barrel-woman Sarfunkel, fed Gaimon some food.[6]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Its name is a portmanteau between the words lion and buta (豚, Japanese for pig). This also corresponds to its appearance as a pig with a lion's mane.
