Moda is a milk maiden[5] that Ace met during his cover story. She is the daughter of Koda and Kyuji.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Moda is a young girl with shoulder-length blonde hair (light brown in the manga), that is half covered by a white bandanna, and light blue eyes. She wears a long red and pink skirt decorated with an intricate pattern with a light blue shirt and dark blue boots.[1]

After the timeskip, she has notably grown, looking more like an adult woman with defined curves and her hair has become longer. However, her attire is similar to what she wore before the timeskip but has replaced her top with a long-sleeved blouse. Her bandana now has a cow pattern and has long brown boots. One of her teeth has also been chipped.[3]

Ace's Great Blackbeard Search[edit | edit source]

She saved Ace from the river after he was kicked into it by Doctor Black Beard, an angry chef Ace had skipped out on, and several others.[1] Ace later returned the favor by reuniting Moda with her parents who were working as cooks on one of the Marines' ships.[6][7]

Levely Arc[edit | edit source]

Moda batters Pinkbeard.

When Pinkbeard and his crew invaded Lulusia Kingdom, Moda begged him not to steal from them, as the only money they possess goes to the World Nobles as an offering. Pinkbeard struck her down and demanded she hand it over, but Moda was caught by Belo Betty. After Betty bolstered the townspeople using her abilities, Moda used her newfound strength to defeat Pinkbeard.[3]

Major Battles[edit | edit source]

Anime and Manga Differences[edit | edit source]

During the Pinkbeard Pirates' attack in the anime, Moda is trying to protect a jar of milk from them, which was not shown in the manga.[8] In the manga, Moda struck Pinkbead on the top of his head. In the anime, she struck him in the face.
