Appearance[edit | edit source]
As their name suggests, they are a race of very long-legged individuals and because of this, they are very tall and outsize the average human greatly (although they are nowhere near as tall as giants). Their legs are very long in comparison to their upper bodies.

Inter-species Relationships[edit | edit source]
Longlegs and longarms appear to maintain hostile relations, spanning a conflict that has been going on for over a thousand years. However, not all longlegs and longarms are antagonistic with each other. Examples of interracial cooperation include the Longlimb Humans and Ideo Pirates, which includes both a longarm and a longleg.
Biology[edit | edit source]
Aside from their long legs, they are otherwise similar to normal humans.
Hybrids[edit | edit source]
A longleg tribe member can breed with other races in the One Piece world, such as humans and long arms.
Hybrids between humans and longlegs look indistinguishable from full-blooded longlegs, and they can make full use of their fighting styles and advantages.
- A Longleg-Human hybrid, such as Charlotte Smoothie, Charlotte Citron, and Charlotte Cinnamon.
- A Longleg-Longarm hybrid, better known as Longlimb Humans.
Overall Strength[edit | edit source]
The incredible long legs of the Longleg tribe endows them with not only height but incredible leg strength as well, and those that are hit by the legs of a longleg fighter consider them to be like metal whips.
As acknowledged by fighters in the Corrida Colosseum, the legs are the most important part of the tribe's fighting form. Therefore, aiming for them seems to be their most vulnerable weakness. However, due to the speed a trained longleg fighter can move their legs at, landing just a single blow is not always possible to do.
As seen with giants and tall humans, weapons wielded by members of their tribe are often scaled to their long leg proportions.
Beliefs[edit | edit source]
According to Oda, Longleg Tribe members have self-confidence in their beautiful and long legs. Over time, they have taken to exposing their long legs to show off the tattoos they often adorn their long legs with. However, Tamago does not abide by this fashion.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- They appear to be based on Japanese legendary creature called a Ashinaga-jin (足長人?), whose most notable characteristic is their long legs. They are half of a pair called Ashinaga-tenaga (足長手長? "Long Legs Long Arms"), the other being the Tenaga-jin (手長人?), which the Longarm Tribe is based on.
- Unlike their counterpart, the Longarm Tribe, the Longleg Tribe only has one joint in its characteristic long limbs.
