Sanjuan Wolf[5] is an enormous giant, known as "Colossal Battleship" for his size, and was originally one of the legendary criminals who was given a life sentence in Level 6 of Impel Down, as his crimes were so atrocious they had to effectively be erased from history itself. He was initially mentioned briefly by Emporio Ivankov.[6]

He was eventually freed from prison by Marshall D. Teach, and since then has become a member of the Blackbeard Pirates. He is currently one of the Ten Titanic Captains, and the captain of the Seventh Ship of the Blackbeard Pirates.[2]


Thanks at least in part to his Devil Fruit, Wolf is a giant of extraordinary size, as high at 180m at least[2] towering over even the largest beings known to date like Oars or Little Oars Jr., as well as being so big that he appears to be roughly the same size as the Marine Headquarters at Marineford. The shape of his head and the disposition of his brown beard resemble a chestnut, making his spiky, round and beige hair resemble a chestnut shell. His facial features include round eyes with dark lines around them, along with eyelash-like marks, similar to those found on Franky's face, that point downward. He wears his prison uniform from Impel Down and he is always barefoot. [7]

Although known for committing crimes that caused his existence to be erased from history,[8] he seems to have a playful attitude, as seen when commenting that he was found when he was trying to hide behind Marine Headquarters.[1] He is also quite shy, as he acts scared when people realize who he is and continued hiding while the rest of the crew fought Whitebeard. In fact, he was the only person there who did not fight in the war. He is also prone to complaining, as shown when the Blackbeard Pirates headed to the New World. Despite his complaining and lack of participation, he is shown to be very loyal to Blackbeard.

Abilities and Powers

Wolf's abilities have not yet been shown, but he was powerful enough to be contained in Level 6 of Impel Down when caught by the World Government. As a giant, he shares their attributes, including immense strength, though to what degree is unknown.[8] Another testament to his power is the fact that when Blackbeard recruited the Level 6 prisoners, he was one of the people that survived the battle royale, making him one of the strongest prisoners. As one of the Ten Titanic Captains of the Blackbeard Pirates, Wolf has authority over their Seventh Ship and everyone on it.

Despite his tremendous size, he was somehow able to reach Marineford without being detected until he was right behind the Marine Headquarters building.[1]

Devil Fruit

Wolf ate a currently unnamed Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that makes him much bigger than normal giants.[2] Despite being weak against water, he was tall enough to stand in the ocean, though Wolf did mention that doing so was exhausting to him.[9]



Imprisonment in Impel Down

Wolf was born in the West Blue. At some time, he ate a Devil Fruit that gave him the size he is known for.[2] He became one of the most feared criminals in the world, and is noted to be the only known giant of his size, but was eventually caught by the World Government and sentenced to life in Impel Down, Level 6, where he was effectively erased from history. Only a few people such as Emporio Ivankov knew who he was.

When Blackbeard and his crew came to Impel Down, he was liberated from his prison cell by them along with Catarina Devon, Vasco Shot, and Avalo Pizarro after fighting to the death in their own cells and emerging victorious. He and his fellow prisoners were then recruited into the Blackbeard Pirates and went to Marineford.

Summit War Saga

Marineford Arc

The Blackbeard Pirates arrived to the Summit War of Marineford. Wolf hid behind the Marine Headquarters, and was amused when the Marines spotted him[1] and recognized him.[8] Wolf did not participate in his crew's murdering of Whitebeard, and departed with them after Shanks arrived to end the war.[10]

Post-War Arc

The Blackbeard Pirates went on to the New World, but thanks at least in part to Wolf, their log raft was damaged. They defeated Jewelry Bonney and her crew on a burning island, intending to trade Bonney to the Marines for a Marine battleship. Wolf stood in the ocean near its coast and complained about the heat, losing strength and being bitten by a fish, but Blackbeard told him to stop complaining. The Blackbeard Pirates then had to flee the island after spotting Admiral Akainu on the oncoming Marine battleship, believing he would not make the deal with them.[9]

During the Timeskip

One year after the war at Marineford, the Blackbeard Pirates fought against the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates and ultimately won.[11]

At some point, the Blackbeard Pirates expanded and Wolf became one of the Ten Titanic Captains, leading the seventh ship of the fleet.[2]

The Blackbeard Pirates used their captain's knowledge of Whitebeard's former territory to conquer it. With Blackbeard now an Emperor, the crew began hunting powerful Devil Fruit users for their fruits.

Four Emperors Saga

Zou Arc

The Blackbeard Pirates later attacked Baltigo, the Revolutionary Army's headquarters. Baltigo was destroyed by the time the Marines and Cipher Pol arrived, but the Revolutionary Army was able to escape. However, the Blackbeard Pirates fled after briefly clashing with Cipher Pol.[12][13]
