Noko is a young and short boy. He is seen with droopy eyes. He has lavender-colored hair with a yellow hat with teal stripes going through it. The hat resembles almost a bowl-like vase. He is usually seen wearing a dark purple cape and a purple shirt with the sleeves partially rolled up. He also has short, light-brown pants and dark-brown boots.
Noko seemed to be devious and cunning, and approached his victims in a friendly manner. He was also very excited about Luffy's various impressive achievements, not trying to hide it at all in front of Zoro. However, after being released from Tatsu's control, he had no memory at all of what he had done, and seemed to posses a certain child-based cowardice. He appears to love his mother as well.
Abilities and PowersEdit
He is capable of swimming despite having consumed a Devil Fruit. However, his Devil Fruit might not have existed in the anime.
- Further information: Nemu Nemu no Mi
In the game, Noko was shown to have eaten the Nemu Nemu no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit. This was not clearly shown nor stated in the anime. This fruit's power is to put his enemies into sleep. In order to activate this power, Noko must use his seahorse flute Tatsu.
Combining his Nemu Nemu no Mi's hypnotic effects with his seahorse flute's mysterious power to manipulate memories makes the fruit's power much more powerful. He was able to take his victim's memories and turn them against the owners.
Noko was manipulated by Tatsu to help him steal the memories of the people of his home-island. When the Straw Hats arrived, he helped stealing their memories as well, except for Robin's. He returned later to the Going Merry, but was chased away by the Straw Hats and was forced to return Luffy's memories to him.
Later, he also met Nami in his own home-village, had a short talk with her and then ran away.
After that, he manipulated Zoro into attacking Luffy. But when he ran into the rest of the Straw Hats, Sanji attacked him and separated him from Tatsu. He didn't seem to remember anything that had happened, was scared by the Straw Hats and ran home to his mother, who had regained her memory, and told her about the pirates that he had seen.
In the anime, it is the sea horse who steals dreams/memories in the attempt to make itself a dragon (Sennenryu, Thousand Year Dragon). The child is merely a tool it uses and when the Straw Hats defeat it, releasing all the stolen dreams/memories, the boy runs back to the village.
