Official English Name:
Pumpkin Pirates were an anime-only group of children who pretended to be pirates that lived on Ruluka island 50 years ago.
They were allies of the
Straw Hat Pirates during the Ruluka Island Arc.
See also the associated category: Pumpkin Pirates.
One day, their home village was attacked by
Wetton and his pirate crew. The Pumpkin Pirates managed to foil the pirate's plan, but only to be sucked in the Rainbow Mist and ending up in Ape's Concert. Only Henzo managed to escape, sacrificing himself to save his friends from Wetton. The rest of the Pumpkin Pirates have been living in Ape's Concert ever since and managed to survive. Until they meet up with Luffy, Zoro, Usopp, Robin and a grown-up Henzo in which they help them stop Wetton's scheme and were returned home earlier in the timeline.
Ontological Paradox, they become the very Marines that chased the Straw Hat Pirates to Ruluka Island in the first place.
The Pumpkin Pirates are similar to the
Usopp Pirates, as they are both groups of children who acted as pirate crews. Rapanui is the only member that has a surname. He also is the only one to have a known Marine rank, being a
Lieutenant Commander. All of them became Marines except for Henzo, who became a scientist.
They became Marines during the times when pirate legends such as
Roger and Whitebeard were just rookies, making them some of the oldest known Marine veterans. They are the only known pirate crew to join the Marines.
One Piece Anime — Episode 140, The Pumpkin Pirates make their debut.
