Due to his actions and role, he is a supporting antagonist in the Wano Country Arc.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Page One is a shortish young man (marginally shorter than his proclaimed elder sister) with purple hair in a sidecut, shaved off on the left side of his head while on the right kept long and swept down, reaching to his collarbone. He has sharp, angular eyes set under slightly heavy, hairless brow ridges. A tattoo of his name in block capitals (dark-cyan with light-green outlines) frontally occupies his upper body, in a right-to-left tilt upward: the "P" being on his right biceps, "AGE" across his chest, and "1" on his left deltopectoral groove.
Like his sister, Page One dons a mask over his lower face up to the nose, split down the middle into a white (right) and black (left) half, as well as a bucket hat with lateral, upward-curving horns, which is bicolored like the mask but with the left side dark-green instead of black. Otherwise, for clothes, the man sports a nearly ankle-length cape held closed by a single cord below its standup collar, colored light on its outside and dark on its inside. Under said cape, he wears a light-colored shirt with long, cuffed sleeves, a point collar, and a dark tie. His hands are kept in black, tight-fitting gloves that reach nearly to the elbows, mostly hidden by said sleeves. Above his waistline is a dark-blue abdominal wrap, frontally held together by brown, double-crisscrossed lacing. Below, connected with a pair of dark suspenders, Page One takes to wearing baggy, knee-length pants of a lighter blue tone. Tucked into them above is a half-skirt piece colored the same, hanging down over the upper backside of his legs, with a brown belt visible that bears a golden skull buckle. Lastly, of seemingly matching color as the pants is a pair of plain, high-shafted boots.

Personality[edit | edit source]
Around his peers and superiors, Page One tends to display a rather serious, if slightly meek disposition, driven to follow objectives with a single-minded and no-nonsense approach, and not rejoining to insults leveled at him by his fellow Tobiroppo. He is usually the first to be exasperated at his sister Ulti's quirky antics, especially so should they devolve into disrespect toward higher authorities, and is flustered by her childish displays of affection for him.
Yet when in combat, Page One shows himself fully confident in his power, if not disposed to arrogance, and has been seen with a wilder, more thuggish side to him. Believing that anyone rebelling against the administration of Wano should be made an example of, he has no qualms about a powerful pirate like him being sent to deal with such a matter. He was willing to use the hunt for a single defiant food vendor in Sanji as an excuse to destroy and devour the contents of multiple unrelated food stands in the Flower Capital, telling their owners to scream for the offender to show himself if they wanted the destruction to cease. Therewhile, the man exhibited a degree of gluttony, gorging on soba noodles from the shops he wrongly attacked and at one point deciding to attack a fruit shop just because he felt like snacking on fruit. When Sanji prepared the employ of his Raid Suit, Page One wondered if its container was canned food.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Ulti[edit | edit source]
It is unknown if Page One and Ulti are blood-related, but either one seems to acknowledge the other as their sibling. Page One specifically (being two years younger than Ulti) refers to her as "elder sister" (姉貴 aneki?, VIZ: "sis") while Ulti endearingly calls him "Pay-tan" (ペーたん Pē-tan?, VIZ: "Pay-Pay") — "-tan" being a more diminutive or "cute" version of the name suffix "-chan" (with a childish connotation, usually used by and to address children) — much to Page One's chagrin.
While Page One and Ulti seem very close, the former is often seen being exasperated by Ulti's fickle, childishly aggressive demeanor towards their crewmates, especially if constituting disrespect toward superiors, like Kaido himself. Page One is also not exempt from said belligerence on Ulti's part, like when he attempts to rein in her behavior, which makes Ulti snap at him for telling her what to do. Furthermore, due to Ulti being seemingly more attached to Page One than the other way around, he finds his sister's overly clingy, protective behavior towards him irritating, constantly rejecting her demands for affection. As a result, the siblings' relationship is rather volatile, as Ulti's mood towards her brother can range from supportive and affectionate to demanding, to abrasive and outright violent, usually escalating the more Page One tries to rebuff her.
In their search for Yamato, for instance, Ulti chased after her brother, even latching onto and forcing him to give her a piggyback ride at one point, ignoring his protests to leave him alone. Often, Ulti demands attention from her brother or his assistance amidst a battle even if she does not really need it, Page One usually ignoring her attention-seeking or simply telling her to help herself.
Still, in spite his vexation towards Ulti's behavior, Page One does care about his sister, showing concern when she was seemingly hurt during their fight against Luffy and worrying for her after she was struck down by Yamato, asking medics to tend to her.
Crew[edit | edit source]
Unlike Sasaki and Who's-Who, Page One does not seem to extend any particular hostility toward the All-Stars, nor the impertinence to ignore orders from them, though he did partake at least somewhat dedicatedly in the challenge raised by Kaido to gain the right to fight the All-Stars for their position. Even so, Page One's relationship with some of the aforementioned people appears to be strained by virtue of them looking down on him (at least in part because of his young age), with Sasaki denigrating his abilities at one point whilst mockingly using Ulti's nickname for him, and Who's-Who and King respectively calling both siblings brats.
Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]
As one of the strongest six Shinuchi, Page One is very formidable in terms of combat ability, despite his young age. He was able to hold his own against a Raid Suit-wearing Sanji for some time and, alongside Ulti, effortlessly defeated Nami and Usopp.
Devil Fruit[edit | edit source]
- Further information: Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Spinosaurus
Page One ate from the Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Spinosaurus, an Ancient Zoan-type Devil Fruit allowing him to transform into a spinosaurus or a human-spinosaurus hybrid at will. He boasts tremendous strength in his full-beast form, particularly in his jaws and tail, able to effortlessly wreck buildings using them. In his hybrid form, his arms become long enough to use offensively and hold great strength as well, being able to overpower a kick from a Raid Suit-empowered Sanji and send the Straw Hat cook crashing through several houses. As an Ancient Zoan type, Page One has a high amount of durability, able to recover quickly from strong attacks dealt to him by Sanji in his Raid Suit and a Gear Third-using Monkey D. Luffy.
History[edit | edit source]
Wano Country Arc[edit | edit source]
Page One's first appearance was with fellow Tobiroppo X Drake, after they had been dispatched to the Flower Capital by Queen to kill a soba stand owner named "Sangoro" (Sanji of the Straw Hats). Going on a rampage in his full spinosaurus form, Page One wrecked several soba stands in search of his target. This eventually coerced Sanji to come and attack him, causing Page One to call his comrades to their location.
As Page One faced the cook, Sanji donned his Raid Suit and, when the former attempted to catch him with a bite, turned invisible, next kicking Page One in the stomach. This made Page One transform into his hybrid form and assail Sanji with a powerful arm swipe, overpowering the latter's opposing kick and sending him crashing through several buildings. Thinking his foe was dead, Page One prepared to bring him to Kyoshiro, only for Sanji to unexpectedly drop down from above, assaulting him yet again in what caused a large explosion. Though ultimately, the fight's outcome was not shown, Sanji was able to escape the Flower Capital.
On the day of the latest Fire Festival, Page One arrived on Onigashima with the rest of the Tobiroppo. They sat down at Kaido's castle awaiting their meeting with the Governor-General, bickering amongst themselves. When Kaido then welcomed the six in his castle, he gave them the mission of finding his "son" Yamato, saying he would let them battle one of the All-Stars for their post should they succeed. While subsequently searching for Yamato inside the castle, Ulti tagged along with Page One and forced him to carry her when she grew tired. After tumbling down some stairs, they encountered Monkey D. Luffy.
The ensuing clash saw Page One transforming into his spinosaurus form before being struck in the lower maw by Luffy's Elephant Gun, with Ulti consequently being knocked unconscious by the suddenly-appearing Yamato. After recovering from the said scuffle, Page One tried to shake Ulti awake, asking for medics to tend to her. When she awoke and showed she was fine, Page One left her behind to chase after Yamato and Luffy.
Once the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance had fully begun waging war inside the Skull Dome, Page One and Ulti received a call from King informing the Tobiroppo that the challenge for an opportunity to fight the All-Stars was canceled and that they were to stop the enemy alliance from getting to the dome's roof where Kaido was fighting. Thereafter, Page One and Ulti reached the Live Floor of the Golden Kagura, with Page One befuddled as to why Drake had taken down a Number there. The siblings then attacked samurai who attempted to stop the pair from reaching Luffy, whom Page One exclaimed would not reach Kaido like he had before. When Usopp, hidden behind Nami, hit Page One with a Dokuro Bakuhatsu So, he and Ulti began chasing after the two Straw Hats.
Eventually, a fight ensued, and both Page One (yet again transformed) and Ulti had an easy time dealing with Usopp's Pop Green attacks. Both Usopp and Nami were subdued by the opposing siblings, but Ulti was suddenly stopped from dealing the finishing blow to Nami by a komainu, which Page One took note of. As Nami and Usopp were helped to escape on the komainu, Hihimaru began assaulting Page One and Ulti, with Page One biting onto the katana the beast was wielding. Soon after, the siblings had defeated the baboon, and the two broke through a wall of the Skull Dome to the outside, both as fully transformed dinosaurs, seeking to find the escaped Straw Hats.
