Shioyaki is a salmon Fish-Man. He has pink skin, and a fin on the top of his head along with wavy brown hair. He has a black wave tattoo on his forehead. He wears a dark green shirt with a red flower design on it, a blue wrap around his lower body, tan pants, and brown sandals. He also has hair on his forearms.
Abilities and Powers
Being a Fish-Man, he has incredible mobility underwater as well as the ability to stay submerged for as long as he desires. Like all of his race, he is also much stronger than an average human being. Despite these advantages, he is weak in comparison to strong adversaries such as the Straw Hat Pirates, especially when he was swept aside easily when Luffy swung Momoo around.
Arlong Park Arc
When Pudding Pudding and his subordinates arrived at the Conomi Islands to arrest Arlong, Hatchan, Chew and Kuroobi offered to take care of them. Shioyaki and Take commented that the Marines would be surprised and overwhelmed by the three Officers. Their prediction was correct; the Officers quickly defeated the Marines and sunk their ship.
When Momoo arrived to fight to the Straw Hat Pirates per Hatchan’s command, Shioyaki, Kaneshiro and their fellow fish-man followed the sea cow’s lead, rushing to attack the pirates. They were defeated when Luffy grabbed and swung Momoo around by his horns, knocking them all out. After the battle, Shioyaki and the rest of the defeated fish-men were apprehended by the Marines to be imprisoned.
