Merveille, also known as the "Hidden Land in the Clouds", is a hidden archipelago of floating isles in Paradise and served as the base of operations for the Golden Lion Pirates. It is where Shiki and his doctor, Indigo, created many mutated animals in the hopes of having an army to overthrow the world. Of these animals shown 22 years ago is a land-walking squid, giraffes as tall as skyscrapers, and a giant turtle-like creature.[1]

Not only does it contain Shiki's army, it also contains people who have feathers on their arms that enable flight. The island is also home to the rare IQ plant, in which Indigo used as a basis for his SIQ drugs for creating the mutant army, as well as the Daft Green.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

When it was under the Fuwa Fuwa No Mi's influence, Merveille comprised of several floating islands suspended in the air, each with its own flora and ecosystem. It even housed several bodies of water, notably the falls.

Citizens[edit | edit source]

Many of Merveille's human citizens have been mutated to a small degree, likely due to exposure to SIQ, which has caused them to grow feathers underneath their arms and give them the ability to fly.

History[edit | edit source]

The island was turned into a floating sky fortress with Shiki's levitating abilities, and an ancient Japanese-stylized palace in the center of it. After a grueling battle between Shiki and Monkey D. Luffy, when the latter destroyed by Luffy's attack. Shiki's flying powers over the little islands around Merveille was deactivated, and came crashing down into the sea where the land mass contracted, trapping the mutated beasts within, freeing them from Shiki's control but still remaining secluded from the rest of the world.

Translation and Dub Issues[edit | edit source]

  • Its name was incorrectly spelled on the Eternal Pose shown in Shiki's mess hall, which indicates "Merville".
