Lionbuta is an animal who lives on the Island of Rare Animals. Like all the animals on the island, he is protected by Gaimon.
Lionbuta is a mixture of a lion and a pig, with a pink pig body and brown lion mane.

Syrup Village Arc
Lionbuta was the first animal Luffy and Nami encountered on the Island of Rare Animals. He was seen again with a group of animals when Gaimon waved goodbye to the departing Straw Hats.
Buggy's Crew Adventure Chronicles
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.
From the Decks of the World
Lionbuta was seen watching as the new inhabitant of the island, the barrel-woman Sarfunkel, fed Gaimon some food.
- 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.
