"McGuy" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.

"Thunder Lord" McGuy is an infamous New World pirate who allied with Whitebeard.[1]


McGuy has a long face with a big nose and prominent chin, wavy blonde hair reaching to his waist, and a black mustache shaped like a lightning bolt. He sports a blue shirt with loose sleeves and ruffled edges under a black vest. Due to his legs not being visible enough in the manga, in the anime he was given dark bermuda shorts and an orange sash decorated by a silver colored ornament with a red jewel in it.

Though little can be said regarding McGuy's personality in the manga, he is shown having huge respect towards Whitebeard. In the anime, he was shown to be perceptive enough to see through Sengoku's tactic to lure the pirates in for the Pacifista to attack. McGuy cried tragically after the death of Whitebeard.

Abilities and Powers

McGuy has managed to make himself an infamous reputation in the New World, becoming a subordinate of Whitebeard. Also, he was very observant, as he managed to understand why Whitebeard ordered his subordinates to split up in order to avoid being trapped by the Pacifista. He also avoided injuries from the war.

McGuy is a swordsman, although his exact level of ability remains unknown, however it is presumed quite high. His weapon of choice is a saber. He was somehow able to channel electricity through his blade, increasing the damage done; how he accomplishes this has yet to be explained, but it is likely the source for his alias. In the anime, his skill as a swordsman was enough for him to fight on equal grounds against Vice Admiral Doberman to stall him.


Summit War Saga

Marineford Arc

McGuy and other New World captains support Luffy and Ivankov.

McGuy and his crew were first seen, along with a fleet of 42 other infamous pirate crews under the Whitebeard Pirates, attacking Marineford to save Portgas D. Ace from his execution. When Squard stabbed Whitebeard due to being deceived by Admiral Akainu, McGuy was shocked.[3] On Whitebeard's orders, McGuy and the other allied New World captains backed up Luffy and Ivankov as they made their way toward the execution platform.[4]

McGuy cried when the Blackbeard Pirates killed Whitebeard.[5] When the Red Force arrived at Marineford, McGuy was shocked to see that the Emperor Shanks and his crew were there.[6] After Shanks called for a ceasefire, McGuy and the other pirates left the battlefield.[7]

Anime and Manga Differences

McGuy vs Doberman.

In the anime, McGuy was given an additional scene of fighting against Vice Admiral Doberman when Whitebeard ordered his subordinates to backup Luffy; this extra fight was not shown in the manga.

In the manga version of Whitebeard and Ace's funeral in Chapter 590, McGuy cannot be seen among those in attendance. However, the anime version of the exact same scene in Episode 505 explicitly shows McGuy alongside the other attendees.[8] Although it can be assumed that McGuy was at the funeral, there is no visual evidence of his attendance in the manga to support this assumption and, as such, his attendance can only be considered non-canon.
