Nangi is a member of the Numbers in the Beasts Pirates, representing the number "seven".[1]

Due to his actions and role, he is a minor antagonist in the Wano Country Arc.

Appearance

Nangi's full size as shown compared to that of Jack and his subordinates.

As one of the Numbers, Nangi's size seems to be large even by giant standards; in one instance he was shown to utterly dwarf the likes of Jack, who himself is over eight meters tall.

Nangi greatly resembles depictions of oni in traditional Japanese art. He is broadly built and bears a wide mouth full of sharp teeth, including a particularly big pair of upper canines. Nangi has round eyes, light skin, a wide nose, short, curly, green hair with a matching beard, and a small pair of horns on his head. On his lower body he dons an enormous tiger pelt, which in the anime is depicted as having been fashioned into a pair of shorts.[1]

Personality

Nangi is loyal to the Beasts Pirates, as he joined the forces that went out to confront Kaidou's attackers. He was shown laughing when the Mink Tribe forces activated their Sulong forms.

Nangi has a unique laughter that, like his fellow Numbers', is based off his name and the number seven: "Nagigigi" (ナギギギ?).[1]

Abilities and Powers

Thanks to his large size, Nangi has a great amount of physical power that eclipses a typical person's.

Weapons

Nangi wields a long, spiked metal club resembling Kaidou's kanabo.[1]

History

Past

Over 20 years ago, Nangi was a subject in an experiment on Punk Hazard that attempted to recreate the ancient giants. The experiment was a failure, but Nangi and his fellow test subjects were recruited by Kaidou.[3] They began residing on Onigashima and joined Kaidou's crew, the Beasts Pirates, as a group called the Numbers.

Four Emperors Saga

Wano Country Arc

Five days before the Fire Festival, the Numbers arrived in Hakumai via Mogura Harbor and headed toward Onigashima with Scratchmen Apoo.[4]

On the day of the Fire Festival, the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance invaded Onigashima to attack the Beasts Pirates. Nangi accompanied Jack and a large platoon of Beasts Pirates to the roof of the Skull Dome, where they joined Kaidou in confronting the Mink Tribe forces after they had transformed into their Sulong forms.[1] Following a fierce battle, Nangi was defeated by the minks.[5]

Anime and Manga Differences

In the manga, it is not clearly shown who defeated Nangi,[5] while in the anime, he is defeated by Shishilian.[6]

Trivia

  • His name contains the kanji "nana" (? meaning "seven"), and the kanji for "oni" (?).
