Layout and Locations
The most notable landmark of Onigashima, the Skull Dome, is a large rock formation resembling a skull with horns that faces south-east. This mountain is easily visible from a great distance. During the battle atop the Skull Dome, Roronoa Zoro sliced off one of the skull's horns with Enma. Big Mom also caused further damage to the mountain while testing her new homie Hera, creating a three-level wide hole to the right side of the mountain's face.
Thanks to its enormous size, the dome's summit can act as a battlefield for numerous fighters, including even Kaidou in his gigantic dragon form. The top of the dome can be accessed from Kaidou's Castle through a huge set of doors, which allows even the Numbers to go and come as they please.
Most of Onigashima's buildings appear to be directly connected to the Skull Dome, making this landmark central to the Beasts Pirates' operations. The inside of the dome consists of various buildings lining the walls of the right and left side, with the castle being at the furthest wall.
Kaidou resides in a towering castle within the Skull Dome, built by Minatomo. It is located at the very rear of the dome, at its northern-most point. The interior resembles a traditional Japanese castle, with sliding doors, paper lanterns and even bonsai tree arrangements. It consists of seven floors in total, specifically five regular ones leading to the dome's summit and two basements, the latter being each split over two further levels.
The castle appears to occupy a considerable portion of the skull's interior and can accommodate even the largest members of the Beasts Pirates with ease. Still, the place is not optimal for fights as during Luffy's battle against two of the Tobiroppo, concern was expressed over the castle's ability to withstand their attacks without suffering serious structural damage. Specific rooms within the castle include a prison cell which was once occupied by Eustass Kid, a room Kaidou uses for meetings with his top subordinates. and a room decorated with several bonsai trees and a Japanese armor set.
According to Yamato, each floor has an attic space in-between it and the upper floors.
- The Treasure Repository (宝物殿 Hōmotsuden?) is where the Nine Red Scabbards rested after their fight against Kaidou. It is located in the Castle Exterior (?), an open garden area that is seemingly directly beneath the Skull Dome's roof.
- The Banquet Hall (宴会場 Enkaijō?), where Black Maria and many of her direct, yōkai-themed subordinates sought refuge during the Onigashima raid. Black Maria booby trapped the place with her spider webs, which allowed her to capture Sanji and hold him prisoner inside.
- The Nekoka-fé (ネコ科フェ Nekoka-fe?, literally meaning "feline café"), seemingly run and occupied by Who's-Who and his feline subordinates. Themed after a Cat Café, the large open area features several grossly oversized cat trees.
- The Guest Parlor (来賓の間 Raihin no Ma?) is a private room located somewhere in Kaidou's Castle designated to accommodate guests from outside Wano. It is where the members of CP-0 stayed during the Golden Kagura, observing and receiving reports from the ongoings of the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance's raid.
According to the blueprints Kin'emon acquired from Ashura Doji, Kaidou's castle has a rear entrance accessible only from the back of the Skull Dome, at the north of Onigashima. There are in fact two entrances, one in an upper level and another in a lower one to its left, both being part of an structure resembling an ancient Japanese shrine on top a rocky staircase. Each entrance is represented with a torii of its own.
It is an enormous banquet hall that can house most of Kaidou's forces, including the gigantic Numbers. It has many multi-level towers and private rooms. There is also a DJ station set up here, from where Scratchmen Apoo plays music.
Situated in front of the Live Floor is the Live Stage (ライブステージ Raibu Sutēji?, VIZ: Performance Stage), the balcony of Kaidou's castle that oversees the banquet hall from above. During the Golden Kagura, Queen held his live performances here.
The Right Brain Tower (右脳塔 Unō-tō?) is a building located in the Live Floor to the west, connecting it to the outside of the Skull Dome, at Onigashima's southernmost point. It primarily consists of a pathway decorated with wisteria flowers.
After rescuing Kozuki Momonosuke from the Beasts Pirates with Sanji's help, Shinobu fled here with her master while being pursued by a protective Yamato. At the end of the tower's path, Sasaki ambushed Shinobu with his Armored Division and confronted Yamato and, later, Franky.
At the end of this floor, there is a set of stairs that leads to the upper Live Floor.
The Beasts' Bath (百獣の湯 Hyakujū no Yu?) is a bathhouse in the Forehead Floor, to the west.
The Forbidden Storeroom (開かずの倉庫 Akazu no Sōko?) is an old building within the Skull Dome where discarded objects and junk are kept. Yamato took refuge with Kozuki Momonosuke and Shinobu here once Onigashima took off to the sky. It is located next to the stairway that leads into the Skull Dome's Forehead Floor. The storeroom itself appears to be closed off and in a state of decay, with some Beasts Pirates considering it a "cursed" place that no one dared to enter anymore. Because of this, Yamato thought the building was a great spot to hide from Kaidou's forces until a mouse mary detected them.
A destroyed dragon statue is one of the few objects worth of notice found there. It was originally located near the entrance of Onigashima, but was broken by Yamato as a sign of rebellion towards her father. Portgas D. Ace, in a sign of support, melted the statue in order to take responsibility for Yamato's deed and to send a warning to Kaidou.
