Due to his actions and role, he is a major antagonist in the Wano Country Arc.
Queen is a massive, round-figured man (evidently obese but claiming otherwise) with light skin. At a towering 612 cm tall, he is a mere centimeter shorter than his fellow All-Star King. Similar to Jack, Queen is built top-heavy, with thick, tapering arms yet, compared to his upper self, smallish legs. After being defeated and drained of his fluids by Aramaki, he appeared to have become much skinnier.
His head is hunched, undistinguished from his neck due to its plumpness, with a small face. His eyes are hidden by sunglasses with blue lenses and gray, oval rims, which instead of having temples are strapped on by black tapes that go around his head in such a way as to form an X both on his forehead and occiput. Queen has no visible eyebrows, a small hook nose, and his small mouth, sporting navy lipstick, always smokes a big cigar. His hair is blond: a thick, queue-like braid through eight ties, with a stinger-shaped ending tuft, comes out the back of his head, which is otherwise bald. Additionally, he dons a Fu Manchu mustache whose tendrils widen as they droop to his chest. A stitched scar runs curvilinear from his right chest up to the shoulder. On Queen's upper right arm is a black (dark blue in the anime) tattoo consisting of his crew's Jolly Roger above his name in block capitals. Queen's left arm, up to the shoulder, is cybernetic in gray and golden color, composed of metallic rings, bolted plating, wiring, and even a small pressure gauge, with the corresponding hand covered in an orange glove, but was later destroyed by Sanji during the Raid on Onigashima.
Queen wears large, very high-waisted overalls that uniformly reach just below the chest, are thickly, vertically striped black-and-white, and held up by suspenders connecting with 8-shaped, golden clasps on the frontal top edge; a piece of cloth striped the same is integrated into his metal arm. As for footwear, Queen has simple, brown ankle boots.
20 years ago, he had a shorter, pencil-style mustache. At the time, his left arm had not yet been converted into a mechanical one.
Living up to his position as an All-Star, Queen prides himself as being a lively entertainer amongst the crew, including performing his signature funky songs and dances to rally his subordinates. Being extremely dramatic, he tends to treat his position as his own personal show, as seen when he told Babanuki to make an official ranking of the current issues at Udon. He can also be rather vain while performing, as he proudly proclaimed his fat as mere muscle and how he would be much more attractive if he was not voluntarily this large.
Queen is also extremely arrogant with immense pride in himself and his crew as he considered the Beasts Pirates to be the strongest and the Pleasure and Waiter members of his crew to be useless dead weight due to their lack of artificial Zoan Devil Fruit powers making them incapable of being actual use to the crew itself. He also despises people who criticizes him and his actions such as his fellow All Star King due to his ego as an All Star of the Beasts Pirates, as he took twisted pride in using his viruses to hurt people including his own subordinates. Queen also considered Chopper's actions of saving infected members of the Beasts Pirates to be unnecessary, and even tried to kill Chopper out of annoyance for lecturing him with his medical ethics.
Queen is extremely sadistic with an obsessive penchant for blood sports and execution games as a form of entertainment for himself and his crew, believing that the time it takes for a battle to conclude combined with the number of fighters is what determines the level of excitement in combat. To this end, Queen is fair to some extent, allowing Luffy to fight in the Great Sumo Inferno without being restricted by the Seastone cuffs. However, his execution games are nevertheless intended to be inescapable and unwinnable. He is also willing to add sadistic rules such as keeping Kid and Kamazo submerged in water until Luffy and Hyogoro die in the ring. He also has no qualms toying with the lives of his subordinates such as the Pleasures and Waiters for his own enjoyment.
Despite having an inflated ego, Queen has a habit of losing his composure in light of an urgent situation. This was seen on Onigashima, when the Nine Red Scabbards suddenly showed up on the Live Stage to attack Kaidou, with a shocked Queen wondering where they came from. He is also shown not to be fearless as he was terrified upon seeing the change in Big Mom once she regained her memory. After Big Mom abruptly fell asleep, Queen took extreme precautions to restrain the sleeping Emperor and escort her to Onigashima as quickly as possible. However, this caused him to overlook the fact that Luffy was free of his collar and of the threat he now represented to Udon. His cowardice is evident during Kaidou's brawl with Big Mom, when Queen told his subordinates not to cower only for them to accuse him of making excuses to leave Onigashima.
Like King, Queen is extremely rude and critical of his crewmates, as he was quick to deride his fellow All-Stars and call them names. He and King seem to have a mutual sense of disdain for Jack, as they are quick to gang up on him when in the same room. He also used derogatory language when addressing his subordinates in Prisoner Mine.
As a scientist, Queen is extremely proud of his scientific talents, as he flaunts his personal cybernetic modifications, which he claims to be superior to Vegapunk's, in battle. He also enjoys proving his scientific superiority, as he demanded that Sanji use his Raid Suit against him to allow him to compete his own technology against Germa's.
Queen also has a fondness for beautiful women, as he was seen ogling a picture of Komurasaki, and he appears to frequent the Red-Light District for prostitutes. His subordinates believed that he would go berserk and take his anger out on them if he found out that Komurasaki was dead.
|— Queen to Big Mom|
Queen is a glutton who is extremely fond of oshiruko, claiming it is just as important to him as the air he breathes. He is adamant in his refusal to share with anyone. When Queen does not get his daily fill of oshiruko, he becomes easily irritable and even murderous. Queen's love for oshiruko is so immense, that he is willing to fight the Emperor Big Mom to prevent her from stealing his oshiruko.
Queen has interjected the word "Excite" (エキサイト Ekisaito?) into his sentences. The Japanese word for his epithet, "Plague", is "Ekisai" (疫災?). The Viz translation retains the pun, with Queen saying phrases like "I'm plagued with excitement!".
While Queen acts extremely obnoxious toward his crewmates, he is popularly received amongst the lower-ranking members, given his music-performing nature and penchant for execution games. In spite of that, Queen had faith that his subordinates could defeat Luffy in a rigged sumo tournament despite the fact that Luffy had a higher bounty than Queen himself. Also, his crew has a sense of fear whenever Queen becomes angry, especially when he is denied oshiruko, his favorite food.
|— Queen to the Pleasures and Waiters|
Nevertheless, Queen holds the Pleasures and Waiters in little regard, involving them in a sadistic tagging game of Ice Oni seemingly for his own amusement. Because those grunts are unable to gain SMILE abilities anymore, Queen developed the Ice Oni virus specifically to make them stronger footsoldiers for the Beasts Pirates at the cost of their own lives, admitting that he did not care whether those below the rank Gifters died or not since they were expendable and easy to replace. Feeling hurt and betrayed by this display of callousness from their superior, some of the Pleasures and Waiters decided to rebel against Queen and fight for the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance. Furthermore, he had no reservations in attacking Gifters who had been tamed by Tama's Kibi Dangos.
As one of Kaidou's three closest associates, Kaidou has a great deal of trust in Queen and his abilities. They appear to have a casual standing, as Queen addresses Kaidou by his name, rather than by title, such as "Sir" or "Boss". However, Queen is loyal to his general, as he attacked Big Mom for invading Wano.
Kaidou, though seeing Queen as one of his three confidants, did not hesitate in giving the lower ranking Tobiroppo a chance to challenge any All-Star of their choice to take their position, as the crew's hierarchy is determined by an individual's power. Kaidou also took joy to Queen's dismay when he told him of Komurasaki's "death", much to the latter's overwhelming sadness.
Queen has a rivalry with his fellow All-Star, King, as they both didn't hesitate to insult one another in front of their subordinates. However, they both share a mutual disdain toward their other fellow All-Star, Jack. After escorting Big Mom to Onigashima, Queen furiously blamed King for Big Mom's presence.
In spite of this mutual animosity, Queen knows how to work together with King when the situation demands it. Furthermore, Queen is shown to have more confidence in his fellow All-Star's abilities than he ordinarily admits, as shown when he gloated to Sanji that King's lunarian heritage would allow him to make quick work out of Zoro.
Despite both being All-Stars, Queen has an extreme amount of ridicule for Jack, as he joined King in ganging up on and insulting him when in the same room. Jack was silent at this verbal abuse and only replied in a respectful tone, despite his ruthless personality.
Given their shared music-loving personalities, Queen shares a close relationship with Scratchmen Apoo, to whom he refers as "brother" and shown when the two perform together at the Golden Kagura. Their close friendship did not stop Queen from putting Apoo in a sadistic game with all the others in a room infected with Ice Oni. He did, however, leave with him the only known antidote, albeit putting him in an even more dangerous situation. After Apoo was defeated by Zoro and the antidote was taken, Queen was disappointed and decided to infect Apoo with the virus, but Zoro destroyed the gun.
Straw Hat Pirates
Monkey D. Luffy
|— Queen and Luffy|
Queen has genuine respect for Luffy due to his strength and reputation as a member of the Worst Generation, repeatedly trying to convince the Straw Hat to join the Beasts Pirates, and stating that he would personally ask his captain to pardon him for his crimes if he did, in spite of Luffy's openly rebellious attitude towards Kaidou and his crew. Queen was impressed that Luffy was able to use Haoshoku Haki.
Regardless, Queen still looks down on Luffy to an extent and made sure to reiterate to the Straw Hat captain that, as long as he was his prisoner, his situation was hopeless. The All-Star also noticed that Luffy cared for Eustass Kid's well-being as a fellow rival of the Worst Generation, taking advantage of this to motivate Luffy into losing his Sumo Inferno game by continuously torturing Kid after the latter got recaptured into Udon.
Luffy has his own personal nickname for Queen: "Balloon".
Tony Tony Chopper
Queen seemingly has a very low opinion on Chopper, viewing the reindeer as nothing more than a lowly ship's doctor and questioning his ability to counter his viral weapons. In addition, as a pirate used to treacherous practices, Queen thought Chopper was lying to the victims of the Ice Oni disease about developing a possible cure to save them, having expected the Straw Hat to have fled away despite his promises. When Chopper managed to prove him wrong and did in fact cure all victims, Queen became angry and tried to shoot the reindeer dead.
Chopper, who is a follower of medical ethics, opposes everything Queen stands for regarding the weaponization of viruses, as the reindeer doctor believes those cannot be properly controlled by humans. As is the case with many other characters, Chopper is referred to as a tanuki by Queen. Chopper, predictably angry about this, clarified to Queen that he was in fact, a reindeer, while slapping the All-Star in the face when given the opportunity.
Unfortunately for Chopper, Queen turned out to be too much for him to handle, as the All-Star admitted he was merely playing around with the reindeer before attempting to finish him off, having decided to humor Chopper for his insolent behavior beforehand. Fortunately though, Chopper was able to hold off Queen long enough for Sanji to arrive and take over the fight.
Queen is aware of Sanji's lineage to his old lab partner, Vinsmoke Judge, constantly referring to him as "Judge's son", which irritated Sanji due to his hatred for his blood-father. He also assumed that Sanji's flaming kick was a result of Judge's modifications to all his children.
He completely ignored Sanji's refusals about using the Raid Suit, as Queen was more thrilled about seeing the Germa science in reality than having to deal with Sanji's hatred for his family. When Sanji makes the choice to destroy the Raid Suit, Queen was disappointed that he would never be able to see Sanji transform into it, as he wanted to test it against the abilities of the Vinsmoke brothers that he duplicated to prove he was a superior scientist to Judge, much to Sanji's ire who doesn't care about this rivalry.
When Sanji later found out that Queen was the one who was actually responsible for injuring the geisha Some instead of him, for making him doubt himself, an enraged Sanji unleashed a new ability called Ifrit Jambe to assault Queen with a chain of attacks, with Sanji ordering Queen to never say the names of his father and brothers in his presence, which resulted in Queen's defeat.
Queen is familiar with Hyogoro as the legendary yakuza boss of the Flower Capital. After they first met, Queen mocked Hyogoro for his miserable plight and also sentenced him to the Great Sumo Inferno as a death sentence. Nevertheless, he was impressed by the latter's strength.
Later, during the Onigashima raid, Queen witnessed Hyogoro regaining the strength of his prime thanks to the Ice Oni disease and wiping out a large number of Kaidou's forces at the Live Stage. This led the All-Star to acknowledge the old yakuza boss as a significant threat, enough to target him.
Because of his role as a traitor who freed Trafalgar Law while the latter was captive under the Beasts Pirates, Queen obviously despises Drake and intended to kill him during the Golden Kagura. Queen and Who's-Who both orchestrated an ambush in order to catch Drake off-guard and proceeded to interrogate him about his true allegiance. Later on, when Drake escaped into the Live Stage, Queen stated that there was no escape for the former Tobiroppo before starting the Ice Oni outbreak.
As Big Mom is his general's rival, Queen is familiar with her. He was very shocked to see her at the Prison Mines, as he heard that her ship was sunk by King. Nevertheless, Queen and Big Mom came to blows when she demanded oshiruko, something Queen favored too. Despite her status as an Emperor, Queen prepared to fight her by transforming into a brachiosaurus only to be slammed by her. After devising a new strategy against Big Mom, Queen used his Brachio Bomber technique on her only to be shocked when Big Mom did not fall and became terrified when Big Mom suddenly regained her memory and recognized him though she suddenly fell asleep afterward. Queen then chose not to underestimate Big Mom by imprisoning her using 100% pure Seastone chains, along with 100 injections of beast tranquilizers before quickly transporting her to Onigashima with tight security as escorts. Despite his fear towards her, Queen still showed her disrespect, calling her an "old hag".
Queen is immensely infatuated with Komurasaki, believing that her beauty is wasted on the Shogun Orochi and even carrying around her picture to ogle at in his free time. Queen's adoration for Komurasaki is so great that his subordinates are terrified of reporting her death to Queen in fear that he will kill them in a fit of rage. When Queen found out about her "death", he started crying and begging for it to be a lie.
However, Some held no interest in Queen at all and frequently made up excuses to avoid servicing him. This angered Queen, who saw through the excuses and was prompted to attack her when he had the opportunity while invisible. Queen then attempted another attack when he saw Some still lively searching for Chuji, her pet rat. This proved to be a mistake though, as it led Queen to get distracted and defeated by Sanji.
Queen and Vinsmoke Judge were former colleagues in MADS, a research team from long ago. As such, Queen is familiar with Judge's children, including Sanji, whom he frequently refers to as "Judge's son".
Queen has displayed immense interest on Judge's research on Modified Humans, due to remembering a conversation in the past about how the Germa king intended to make perfect, emotionless warriors. He has a strong desire to prove himself a more superior scientist to Judge, and to this end shows notable curiosity over Sanji's Raid Suit, inciting him to equip it several times during their fight so that he can prove that his own bodily modifications are superior.
Abilities and Powers
As an All-Star of the Beasts Pirates, Queen has great authority over his crew just below his Governor-General. He formerly had the highest authority over Udon, a region in Wano Country, and oversaw the proceedings of the Prisoner Mine, where all the Headliners who maintained the facility reported directly to him. In terms of battle prowess, Queen is one of the Beasts Pirates' strongest warriors, implied to be the strongest after Kaidou and King, holding a bounty of 1,320,000,000 that illustrates his fearsome reputation. Queen is a veteran pirate, having been part of the Beasts Pirates for at least 20 years and was already considered among its strongest members even then. Like the other All-Stars, he is hailed as a "calamity" for his destructiveness, having earned the moniker of "The Plague" due to his use of extremely potent manufactured viruses. In fact, had it not been for the efforts of Tony Tony Chopper, the doctor of the Straw Hat Pirates, the thousands of warriors fighting on the Live Floor of the Skull Dome would have all been wiped out after being infected by just one of his artificial viruses.
In the midst of combat, Queen exhibits extraordinary fighting skills, as he (alongside King), was able to battle Marco the Phoenix, the former right hand of the Emperor Whitebeard, until the point of the latter's exhaustion, and emerged from the fight with only slight injuries, recovering quickly and then engaging a large assortment of enemies. As a further testament to his power, Chopper, in his strongest form, the Monster Point, was utterly helpless before Queen, being quickly overwhelmed when the All-Star decided to take the fight seriously, and being unable to inflict any substantial damage on him during a timespan of at least twenty minutes.
Queen has demonstrated incredible fighting skills by combining his vast physical strength with his cybernetics, being capable of easily blocking one of Luffy's punches with his hand and throwing the pirate to the ground with his mechanical arm. He could fight and overwhelm Sanji, an extremely powerful martial arts master, slamming him through multiple reinforced stone walls with a single hand. However, Queen's fighting prowess has limits, as he was completely unable to track Sanji's newly-acquired high speed movement after his genetic enhancements were fully awakened, which he initially mistook for invisibility, and was quickly defeated by his barrage of Ifrit Jambe-enhanced techniques.
Queen is an extremely talented scientist, inventor, and mechanic who specializes in the creation of biological weaponry. Queen is skilled at developing brutal torture methods to break the spirits of the Beasts Pirates' enemies and get them to reveal information, an ability of which he is very proud of.
Queen employs several cybernetic augmentations of his body that greatly assist him in battle. He claims to be a cyborg (
In full brachiosaurus form, he has a double-barreled Gatling gun, artificial fangs and a laser beam cannon equipped at the end of his brachiosaurus tail and hair braid, as well as inside of his mouth, with the latter in particular being an extremely advanced form of technology that has only been replicated by master engineers like Franky and Vegapunk, a testament to Queen's own genius. Moreover, his neck area is modified with an in-built mechanical cable that allows him to extend his already long brachiosaurus neck beyond its normal range. He also has retractable needles in his teeth and voice activated rocket launchers in his sides.
Queen's hybrid form displays a different set of modifications, such as clawed tentacle appendages located on his tail and braided hair, which is also capable of firing lasers. His prosthetic left arm also changes shape, sporting a claw similar to the aforementioned appendages. His left arm was later destroyed by Sanji during the raid on Onigashima.
Notably, Queen has done significant research on Germa 66's technology, with the intent of surpassing it through his own cybernetic replications. As such, Queen has access to most of the special powers held by the Vinsmoke siblings in their Raid Suits, such as Ichiji's optic beams, Niji's lighting shocks, Sanji's invisibility and Yonji's extendable metal arm.
- Black Coffee (ブラック
光火Burakku Kōhī?, literally meaning "Black Light Flame"): In his Full Beast Form, Queen fires a laser beam from his mouth or tail, while in his human-beast form he can fire it (individually or simultaneously) from either his mouth, mechanical arm, hair, or tail. The beam works similarly to the ones used by the Pacifista and Franky's "Radical Beam", generating an explosion after hitting a surface. The beam is depicted as purple and black in the 24th opening of the anime. Queen first attempted to use this move against Hyogoro, but he was interrupted by Marco before he could fire it, causing Queen to target the Whitebeard pirate with this move instead. However, the technique was not named until Queen used it against Chopper. This technique's name is a pun on the fact that the kanji characters for "Light Flame" (光火) can be read as kō hi, which resembles the Japanese pronunciation of "coffee" (コーヒー kōhī?). The pronunciation of "black" (burakku) is also similar to the "brachio" (burakio) prefix that is consistent with Queen's brachiosaur theme. In the Viz translation, this is called Black Coffee Beam, which is possibly a pun on "coffee bean".
- Bridal Grapper (ブライダル
熱拳Buraidaru Gurappā?, literally meaning "Bridal Heat Fist"): While in Human-Beast Form, Queen heats up his mechanical hair claw and attempts to grab a target while burning them with it. This move was first attempted on Roronoa Zoro, but Sanji intervened and countered the move with his own Diable Jambe. The pronunciation of "bridal" (buraidaru) is similar to the "brachio" (burakio) prefix that is consistent with Queen's brachiosaur theme. In the Viz translation, this is called Bridal Grabber.
- Bry Pan (
風来拳Burai Pan?, literally meaning "Erratic Fist"): While in Human-Beast Form, Queen rapidly punches with his hair claw, tail claw, and left arm claw. This was first used against Sanji. The name of the technique is a pun on "fry pan", with the initial syllable altered to mimic the pronunciation of "brachio" (burakio). In addition, the kanji characters for "erratic" (風来) would normally be read as fūrai, resembling the Japanese pronunciation of "fry" (フライ furai?). In the Viz translation, this is called Flying Pan.
- Brachio Launcher (ブラキオランチャー Burakio Ranchā?): While in Beast Form, Queen activates rocket launchers equipped to his torso via a voice command. This was first used against Sanji, though Queen accidentally also hit himself by mentioning the "Brachio Launchers", which activated the voice recognition.
- Sparking Queen (
火花 QUEENSupākingu Kuīn?, literally meaning "Spark Queen"): Queen's variant of Germa 66's Sparking Red, Queen fires beams from his eyes.
- Henry Queen (
起電 QUEENHenrī Kuīn?, literally meaning "Electromotive Queen"): Queen's variant of Germa 66's Dengeki Blue, Queen electrifies his body and then extends his mechanized neck in order to bite and electrocute his enemy.
- Winch Queen (
巻力 QUEENUinchi Kuīn?, literally meaning "Winding Power Queen"): Queen's variant of Germa 66's Winch Green, Queen extends his mechanical left arm, grabs his opponent, and swings them around, slamming them into various walls.
Befitting his epithet of "The Plague", Queen is a genius virologist. He has invented abnormal and deadly viruses and weaponized them through ammunition known as Excite Bullets, which instantly spread the disease upon striking their victims. Two of Queen's viruses have been seen so far, and both of them are able to easily spread through physical contact, meaning Queen and anyone with Excite Bullets can quickly infect an entire closed-off group of enemies with only a few hits. He has shown sufficient medical expertise to develop an antidote for one of his deadliest viruses as a safety measure.
- Mummy causes a high fever and constant bleeding. Not long after, its victims become shriveled and dehydrated and suffer everlasting pain.
- Ice Oni covers its victims' skin in ice, which alters some parts of their bodies to make them look like oni. It also enhances their physical abilities. Victims are left freezing and seem to turn savage. The frost combined with the strength boost causes its victims to die after roughly one hour.
- Further information: Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Brachiosaurus
Queen ate the Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Brachiosaurus, an Ancient Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows him to transform into a full brachiosaurus and a human-brachiosaurus hybrid at will. When fully transformed, Queen becomes much bigger and towers over even large humans like Big Mom, who stands over 8 meters tall.
As a Zoan, he gains a significant boost to his physical abilities, and as an Ancient Zoan, this attribute is magnified several times over due to the immense toughness of his dinosaur hide. He has tremendous durability in this state, as he has been able to shrug off powerful attacks, including: Diable Jambe kicks from Sanji, strikes from Chopper in Monster Point, Perospero's candy arrows, his own rocket launchers misfiring on him twice, and he was even able to quickly recover after taking two hits from the Emperor Big Mom, one of the most powerful combatants in the world.
He can use the signature long neck of a brachiosaurus in combat, such as by swinging his head at his opponents, or using his long neck to reach targets that are further than he can normally reach or in mid-air, a skill that can be enhanced due to his extendable, cybernetic neck. Additionally, his body weight is drastically increased in his dinosaur form and he can use this immense weight to his advantage, as very little will be able to withstand the crushing pressure of his massive transformed body. In his Human-Beast form, Queen favours the usage of his cybernetic enchantments and swordsmanship, but can truly employ the power and weight of his extremely dense dinosaur body in his full Beast form.
In full Beast form, Queen also possesses the abnormal ability to detach his neck and tail from his torso, effectively allowing him to transform into a large snake with a powerful coil that he claims can crush the bones and innards of even the most skilled users of Busoshoku Haki.
Queen carries two dao swords on his hips, which are proportionate to his body but rival the size of normal people. He was first shown using one of them to strike X Drake. One of them was shattered by Sanji when Queen attempted to strike him. Twenty years ago during the battle against Oden and the Nine Red Scabbards, Queen used a torch as a club.
At Onigashima, Queen used a Gatling gun to attack the rebels of the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance. The gun is loaded with Excite Bullets carrying Ice Oni, Queen's masterpiece virus according to himself. The gun was eventually destroyed by Zoro. He was also shown carrying a large pistol when going to confront Marco but was unable to use it due to Marco's counterattack.
Twenty years ago when Kozuki Oden and the Nine Red Scabbards were on their way to Onigashima, the Beasts Pirates confronted them in the Udon region. In the ensuing battle, Queen fought Kanjuro and Denjiro. In the end, Oden and his allies were overwhelmed.
Four Emperors Saga
Wano Country Arc
Several days later, Queen came to the Prisoner Mine and gave a performance for the staff there. The warden Babanuki briefed him about multiple tumultuous events, culminating in them witnessing the pirate Monkey D. Luffy trying to escape. Queen had Luffy brought before him along with the old yakuza leader Hyogoro, and with the two of them refusing to submit, Queen initiated his "Sumo Inferno" in which the duo would be forced to battle the Beasts Pirates in a ring until they were forced out, which would cause the collars around their necks to activate and kill them. To make things more fair, he released Luffy from his Seastone handcuffs.
Luffy and Hyogoro lasted into the night, and Queen suspended the event until the next morning. That morning, Queen woke up to a call from Kaidou revealing that the oiran Komurasaki, whom he fancied, was dead, leaving him devastated. Before the match resumed, the pirates and prisoners watched a broadcast of Shimotsuki Yasuie's execution, and Queen expressed approval at Orochi's cruelty. The guards then brought in Eustass Kid, who they had recaptured after escaping from the prison, as well as his crewmate Killer. To add a new element to the game, Queen had their faces submerged in a tub of water and said they would only be freed once Luffy and Hyogoro died. Luffy tried to attack Queen, but the All-Star brushed aside his punch with ease.
The proceedings were then interrupted by the arrival of an amnesiac Big Mom, who expressed a desire for oshiruko. Queen immediately became defensive over his favorite food and transformed into his brachiosaurus form to confront Big Mom; however, she then jumped into the air and slammed Queen's head into the ground before spinning him around by the tail and throwing him into a rock wall, knocking him out. However, Queen quickly regained consciousness and formed a strategy to attack Big Mom. After climbing up atop the rock wall, he transformed again and jumped down headfirst into Big Mom, crashing against her head with his immense dinosaur weight. The attack not only failed to take down Big Mom, but caused her to regain her memories. However, shortly after Big Mom took notice of Queen, she proceeded to fall asleep. Queen immediately ordered for her to be chained up with Seastone and sedated as he prepared a convoy to take her to Onigashima as quickly as possible. Queen set sail with this convoy, leaving the Prisoner Mine in the hands of Babanuki and a small portion of the guards.
Upon arriving at Onigashima, Queen rejoined the other All-Stars as they watched their underlings work to feed Big Mom. Kaidou then arrived and ordered for Big Mom's handcuffs to be removed as the two Emperors proceeded to clash. With their battle threatening the entire island, Queen tried to find an excuse to go back to Udon. However, Babanuki then called him to report that everything was in order at the Prisoner Mine, and Queen believed this, not knowing that the prisoners had actually overthrown it and subjugated the warden. A few days later, Kaidou and Big Mom had ceased fighting and were partying together in preparation for the Fire Festival; revealing to the shock of Queen and everyone else that they had formed an alliance for the purpose of taking over the world.
Five days later, the day of the Fire Festival arrived and the Beasts Pirates' Golden Kagura festivities began; Queen gave a performance on the Live Stage to get things started. However, not too long afterward, a ruckus broke out on the Live Floor as Queen saw Luffy, who had in fact broken out of the Prisoner Mine, as well as his crewmate Roronoa Zoro start attacking the Beasts Pirates. To have them disposed of, Queen said he would grant a Tobiroppo position to the person who could kill the duo. Eustass Kid then showed himself, leaving an aghast Queen wondering what had happened at the prison after he left. Later, Queen, King, and Jack accompanied Kaidou to the Live Stage as they interrupted Orochi's planned execution of Kozuki Momonosuke to unveil Kaidou's "New Onigashima Project". Kaidou executed Orochi as part of his plan to put Wano under the Beasts Pirates' full control, but as he prepared to execute Momonosuke, the Nine Red Scabbards suddenly broke into the building and ambushed Kaidou.
Kaidou and the samurai moved up to the dome roof as thousands of the Scabbards' allies commenced an invasion, and Queen watched as Sanji arrived to free Momonosuke, which King dealt with. Staying on the Live Stage, Queen spotted Luffy and Zoro trying to get up to the roof, and stopped them by grabbing them with his brachiosaurus mouth before spitting them back onto the Live Floor. Queen then had the Tobiroppo Who's-Who take Tobiroppo X Drake up to him, as he was aware that Drake was involved in treacherous activity. Once Drake arrived, Queen attacked him and prepared to coerce him into revealing his true allegiance. Drake was able to escape by creating an explosion, but as he joined the enemy fighters' side on the Live Floor, Queen used a Gatling gun to fire bullets containing his Ice Oni virus into the crowd.
As the infection spread among comrade and enemy alike, turning them into zombie-like berserkers, Queen had all the exits by the floor closed off. Some Pleasures asked why Queen infected them as well, and he responded that the virus would make them more useful than they were currently. Queen then decided to play another game, and announced that he had given the lone sample of Ice Oni antibodies to his crewmate Scratchmen Apoo, resulting in more chaos erupting as everyone on the floor immediately began to pursue him. Zoro eventually cut down Apoo and got the antibodies to his crewmate Tony Tony Chopper, who announced he would make a cure for everyone on the floor. Queen tried shooting Chopper with his Gatling gun, but the gun was then destroyed by a flying sword slash from Zoro.
Marco of the Whitebeard Pirates then arrived to aid in the cure effort and take Zoro up to the roof, so Queen ordered his subordinates to stop Marco. Queen transformed and shot at Marco with a built-in gun in his mouth, but the attack did no damage as Marco was able to restrain Queen and King and launch Zoro onto the roof. Queen then began battling Marco alongside King, with Marco landing some big hits on the All-Stars. Queen's subordinates made another plea for him to save them before they died from the Ice Oni, but Queen responded that they were expendable soldiers who would never get the chance to gain a SMILE power and become stronger. Queen also claimed to the samurai that since Chopper was a pirate, he would not help cure them. However, Chopper then unveiled his countervirus Chopperphage, which spread through the air and cured everyone of the Ice Oni. A shocked Queen prepared to try and attack Chopper again, but his subordinates rose up to protect the Straw Hat doctor, having decided to defect due to Queen's mistreatment of them. Marco was then able to restrain Queen by the neck, allowing Chopper to activate his Monster Point form and deliver a strike to Queen's face which drew blood.
Chopper was able to physically overpower Queen, but the reindeer's attacks only inflicted superficial damage. Big Mom's son Charlotte Perospero aided Queen by assaulting the Live Floor with candy arrows, allowing Queen to overwhelm Chopper. Before he could deal a finishing blow, however, he was struck in the neck by a flaming kick from Sanji. Sanji followed through with the kick to send Queen's neck spinning in circles, resulting in him unwittingly intercepting a volley of Perospero's arrows and sending Perospero himself flying. Queen then watched as a little girl named Tama came on the Live Stage and ordered the Gifters to turn against their crew, which they did. Queen tried to fire a laser at Tama, but was stopped once again by Sanji. Recognizing Sanji as Judge's son, Queen transformed into his human-beast form and activated many of his cyborg implants. King eventually rejoined Queen in the fight, and the two of them overwhelmed both Sanji and Marco before waging an assault on the defected Beasts Pirates. However, Sanji and Marco returned to the battlefield to stall Queen and King just long enough to allow a heavily injured Zoro to recover with a special drug, and Sanji and Zoro proceeded to unleash simultaneous attacks on the two All-Stars that knocked them to the ground.
The duo quickly got back up and resumed battling the two Straw Hats, and when Sanji ignited his leg with Diable Jambe, Queen wondered if such a power came from Judge's modifications, a quandary that Sanji quickly denied. Queen tried to goad Sanji into putting on his Germa Raid Suit like he did when he rescued Momonosuke, but Sanji refused; however, Sanji's powerful kicks were only able to inflict superficial damage on Queen's tough Ancient Zoan body. Queen then decided to show his fruit's "true power", and his neck and tail exited his main body in the form of a serpent. He then wrapped around Sanji, crushing him with a force so great that not even the strongest Busoshoku Haki user could withstand. However, while trying to talk about the explosive gunnery installed in his empty torso, Queen triggered them by mistake and ended up shooting himself, allowing Sanji to get free. Sanji somehow managed to stay standing, and when Queen tried attacking him with a giant sword, the sword shattered on contact with him, leaving the All-Star stunned. Sanji was stunned as well and grew fearful about what was happening to him, causing him to run away with Queen in pursuit.
Queen chased Sanji to the Pleasure Hall, where he saw a geisha named Some that he was pining for but who had continually rejected him. Angered upon seeing her, Queen turned invisible and attacked her before confronting Sanji again. Sanji decided to destroy his Raid Suit, leaving Queen disappointed. The two resumed battling, and Queen revealed that he had obtained the same special abilities that Judge had given to Sanji and his brothers as he demonstrated all of them, although Sanji landed some strikes which pushed Queen further toward his limit. Queen then emulated Sanji's given power of invisibility, but Sanji countered by moving faster than the eye could see. Queen then saw Some come back out, and went to attack her again. However, Sanji then struck him with Ifrit Jambe, a form of Diable Jambe made hotter and more powerful by his new modifications. Sanji pummeled Queen with devastating kicks, culminating in the attack Bœuf Burst which defeated Queen and sent him flying off of Onigashima.
Following the alliance's victory, Queen was imprisoned in the former Prisoner Mine along with King and many other captured crew members. A week later, Marine Admiral Ryokugyu came and attacked the complex, impaling Queen with a tree branch which rapidly dehydrated him and made him shrink considerably. Ryokugyu then brutally stomped on Queen multiple times.

- Like his fellow All-Stars King and Jack, Queen is named after the playing card rank, fitting with the card-themed names of the Beasts Pirates.
- Given that King's name was bestowed on him by Kaidou, it is possible that Queen was born with a different name before having it changed.
- Queen's appearance is reminiscent of the character Heart from Fist of the North Star.
- He also seems to take some visual cues from Obelix, a character from the Franco-Belgian comic The Adventures of Asterix.
