Shanba’s intelligence allows him to use advanced weapons, such as the rocket spears that he and his tribe mates are seen using. He seems to be quite proficient in using them.
Straw Hat Separation
When Chopper landed on Torino Kingdom, Shanba was one of the inhabitants who suggested making the reindeer into stew and was seen chasing him. Afterward, he, along with a few others, engaged in a fight with the Torino birds. Later, Shanba and the other natives befriended Chopper, who eventually resolved the conflict between them and the Torino birds. They bid Chopper farewell when he left to return to Luffy. Shanba was seen again with the rest of his tribe when Chopper returned, and said that his disguise wasn't working.
