Red appears as a tall old man dressed in gentlemanly garments. He has white and red hair in braids, a white goatee and strange circular eyebrows, similar to Sanji's. He also has a piercing in his lower lip connected to an earring in his left ear. When he temporarily regained his youth through his Devil Fruit Power, his hair turned crimson red.
Red's outfit is formed by a purple shirt with a ruffled neck and a red cloak with yellow and blue diamonds as inside theme. He also has a huge blue rose on the left side of his cloak.
Red comes off as a polite gentleman, but is a quite brutal and vicious pirate, since he beat through fleets of Marines and the Straw Hat Pirates without hesitance or care. He was also shown to hate forming alliances with others above all else and preferred keeping to himself, showcasing a very proud and independent mindset. He even displayed anger at others questioning his independence, enough to commit murder at even the slightest insinuation he wasn't his own man. As such he despised others who relied on others and bonds of friendship and camaraderie like that of the Roger Pirates, Straw Hat Pirates, and Whitebeard Pirates, being at odds with each for what he saw as weaknesses. He was also highly ambitious, and planned to become the Pirate King even if he had to give up sympathy, generosity, and even his humanity towards others to reach his dream.
Despite his sense of individualism, he still greatly valued his partner and old friend Pato, initially abandoning him so he wouldn't be caught in his path of carnage to become the Pirate King. He also deeply lamented his own aging, feeling it robbed him of his dreams and his strength, and longed to regain his youth to fulfill his ambitions. Red was also prone to bouts of forgetfulness which he lamently attributed to his age, as he tried to ask Nico Robin to join him after he already made an obedient copy of her to do his bidding.
Red cares greatly for Pato, despite abandoning him for a short amount of time. He regretted doing so and even warmed up to the Straw Hat Pirates. He also respects Luffy and thinks he will be the pirate king some day.
Pato is the friend and only crewmate of Patrick. They seem to be on very good terms of each other despite of Patrick's harsh treatment towards him during the events of Unlimited World Red. Patrick might consider Pato as his own son, as he gave him the name that used to be his own nickname in his Rookie days.
Brook and Redfield seem to have met prior to Patrick's imprisonment in Impel Down, as Red remembers Brook from before his skeleton days and Brook mentioned that Red was called Pato in the past. However, not much more is known about their relationship.
Straw Hat Pirates
Patrick and the crew are now on respectful terms, despite being former adversaries.
Abilities and Powers
According to Sengoku, Red was powerful enough to single-handedly rival the Pirate King Gold Roger and Emperor Edward Newgate during his prime. Even in old age where he claimed to have significantly weakened from senescence, he fought the Straw Hat Pirates, an extremely formidable crew, multiple times with little injury. He has impeccable speed and leg strength, dodging the crew's attacks and knocking Luffy unconscious with one kick. Despite his age, he was also exceptionally durable, withstanding a combined attack from the Straw Hat crew while only being slightly injured from the assault.
Red has an umbrella that he carries around that can turn into a polearm with a bat-shaped scythe on it. He also uses Pato in his pen form to create clones of various enemies from the Straw Hats' journey to fight against them.
Red is possibly a user of Kenbunshoku Haki, explaining his ability to dodge the attacks of the Straw Hat crew so quickly.
After eating the Mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit during the final confrontation of the game, he gains the power to make his teeth sharper to bite people's necks allowing him to suck their blood which causes them to quickly age, leaving them weakened with white hair and gray skin, while adding to his own power and granting him eternal youth.
Red has an unknown ability that allows him to create red shockwaves and attack with purple mist.
At some point in his youth, Red either found Pato or gave him a devil fruit, and they grew to become close friends when becoming pirates, with Red even giving Pato his name which was the same as the name he was given when starting piracy. Red built a name for himself as a powerful pirate on par with Gold Roger and Whitebeard, but failed to leave as much of an impact on the Great Pirate Era as they did. At one point, Red and Pato were separated and Red was captured by the Marines. He was sent to Impel Down and became imprisoned in Level 6. He later snuck out of Impel Down when Teach freed the prisoners before the Summit War of Marineford.
Unlimited World Red
Red ambushed and destroyed multiple Marine battleships by creating clones of Smoker and Kuzan to help him. When the Kuzan clone cornered a Marine officer, the Marine asked the admiral why he was attacking his ship mates. When Red heard, he renounced the man's idea and killed him. Immediately after, he realized he was missing his pen, Pato.
He later found the Straw Hat Pirates and Pato and created clones of Sanji, Usopp, and Robin. He used these clones to kidnap the other Straw Hats, save for their captain. He also created clones of Vegapunk's dragon and Caesar Clown. When they were defeated, he created a clone version of Crocodile. He did the same after Crocodile was defeated with the creation of a clone of Rob Lucci and, later, Hody Jones.
After the Straw Hats defeated Hody, Red arrived and personally destroyed the clone. The Straw Hats thought that he killed the fish-man, and Pato welcomed Red and ran to him immediately. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, and Sanji challenged Red to a fight, but Red defeated Luffy with one attack and Zoro and Sanji with another. He went to defeat the rest when Pato defended them. Red convinced Pato to change into his pen form, which he used to create a clone of Pato himself to use for his own purposes. He abandoned Pato and left, leaving a clone of Whitebeard to fight the Straw Hats.
Red created clones of Wapol, Blackbeard, and Enel, afterwards to keep the Straw Hats busy. Red and his clone Pato re-encountered the crew again at Skypiea. He asked Nico Robin to join him in search of his, at that point unidentified, Devil Fruit. Sanji charged Red alone out of anger, but, before he could hit him, Sanji was knocked away by an attack of a clone Robin created by Red.
Similarly with his other clones, Red created versions of Ace, Borsalino, Sakazuki and Hancock to fight against the Straw Hat crew. The crew returned to Trans Town where they, again, came across Red. This time, Red recreated all of his past clones to fight against the Straw Hat Pirates, including new clones of Nami, Zoro, Chopper, Franky, Brook and Luffy.
After a surprisingly easy battle, the crew finally confronted Red himself. Before they fought, Red consumed a devil fruit and kicked Pato into a building. Luffy charged him, but Red dodged his attack and sucked the life force out of Yadoya, leaving her in an aged state and transforming into a bat-human hybrid. The crew fought him for a while before Luffy decided to fight the pirate by himself.
Luffy and Red fought for a short time before the latter grabbed the young pirate and sucked the life force out of him at Luffy's request and turned him into an elderly state to show him the flaws of old age. Luffy struggled to fight back but eventually knocked Red off of his feet. When he goes to attack Red again, Pato runs to his aid and defends Red, who realizes that his friendship with Pato is more important than power. He also realized chasing his dreams by borrowing the youth of others was wrong and that he should pursue his dreams regardless of his age.
Red gives Luffy and Yadoya their life force back and transforms back to his regular form. He then fights the Straw Hat Pirates in a fair fight, not as much of a conflict as a duel of respect. Red isn't injured by the quarrel at all, and he and Pato wish the crew good luck on their journey. Brook and Red, more specifically, exchange a few words of respect and transcendence.
Red and Pato are later seen sitting on a dock in Trans Town where Pato apologized for doubting Red. Red apologized for abandoning him and says a few words in respect for the great former pirates Roger and Whitebeard, predicting that Luffy will follow in their footsteps.
- Red and clones of Kuzan and Smoker vs. the Marines
- Red vs. a clone of Hody Jones
- Red vs. Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Sanji
- Red vs. Pato
- Red vs. Monkey D. Luffy (alone)
- Red vs. the Straw Hat Pirates (after resolving their conflict)
- Redfield shares some similarities with other non-canon characters:
- He is an Impel Down Level 6 prisoner that escaped during Teach's assault, as Byrnndi World and Douglas Bullet.
- His intro is similar to Shiki, as both single-handedly attack Marineford as Garp and Sengoku observe it.
- As Douglas Bullet - and to some extent Byrnndi World - he doesn't entrust anyone and prefers to fight alone.
