Lunarians[3] are a race of people from the Red Line capable of creating fire from their body.[2] The race is commonly thought to be extinct, with King as the only known survivor.[4]

Appearance

The only known lunarian, King, is a towering humanoid who possesses a pair of large, black-feathered wings on his back. It is unknown whether his tall stature or his wings are lunarian traits.

Inter-species Relationships

Lunarians are one of only three races that are not present in the nation of Totto Land, where various races of the world unite.[4]

Biology

Lunarians possess the ability to "ignite" (発火 hakka?) their body and manipulate the fire they create.[2]

Overall Strength

Lunarians have the ability to create and manipulate fire, which can be weaponized for a multitude of fiery attacks, and their flames can also be used to enhance the power of their melee attacks.[5]

Trivia

  • Lunaria is Latin for "moon-like". In fiction, the term "lunarian" is sometimes used to describe inhabitants of the moon.
  • When Marco was pondering on King's background as part of the lunarian race, due to it originating from the Red Line, he remembered the late Whitebeard once telling him about a "Kingdom of Gods" (神の国 Kami no Kuni?) that had existed on the Red Line long before Mary Geoise was ever there.[6] The possible meaning of that in relation to the lunarians has yet to be explained.
  • The lunarians' ability to create and control fire is similar to the minks' natural ability to conjure electricity from their bodies, as well as the abilities of fish-men and merfolk to manipulate another element, water, via Fish-Man Karate and Merman Combat.
