Minatomo is a legendary carpenter in Wano Country and the leader of a guild that Franky joined to get access to the blueprints of Kaido's fortress. He is related to another person, whose name is also Minatomo, who is a descendant of someone who traveled from Wano to East Blue.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Minatomo is a short, elderly man with tanned skin, dark gray hair, and a stern look on his face. He also has a scar on his left cheek. He wears working clothes in varying shades of blue and has a rope tied around his forehead (a nejiri-hachimaki).
Personality[edit | edit source]
He appreciates talented carpenters as he praised Franky for his superior craftsmanship, albeit in a rude and grumpy manner, much to the latter's annoyance.
Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]
Minatomo is an extremely skilled carpenter, having been the one who built Kaido's residence on Onigashima. Furthermore, he owns his own carpenter guild, of which Franky was temporarily a member, and as such, has an entire guild of carpenters that follow his orders.

Past[edit | edit source]
Wano Country Arc[edit | edit source]
Sometime later when Franky discussed with him about letting him see the blueprints of Kaido's fortress, Minatomo revealed that he just remembered that he had sold the blueprints to a pawn shop ten years ago. Furious, Franky lashed out at Minatomo, who then fired Franky.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- As "Minatomo" appears to be a family name, as evidenced by the other Minatomo, this suggests that Minatomo has a given name which remains unknown.
- Unlike the Minatomo of East Blue, this Minatomo's name is written in kanji, as opposed to hiragana.
