"Smoker" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.
Smoker the White Hunter is a Marine officer and the Commander of the G-5 Marine Base, following the treason of his former superior Vergo. He was first introduced as a captain in Loguetown, where he made it his mission to capture Luffy, and was later promoted to the rank of commodore, due to the events in Arabasta. At some point during the timeskip, he was promoted to the rank of vice admiral. He is also since his debut the superior of Tashigi, serving as her mentor as well.
He is a recurring adversary of Luffy. Due to his actions against Luffy at Loguetown, Smoker can be considered as the primary antagonist of Loguetown Arc, and acts as a minor antagonist during the Marineford Arc. Despite his rivalry with Luffy, for reasons of encountering common enemies they ended up helping each other during the Arabasta Arc, and forming a temporary alliance during the Punk Hazard Arc, returning after both events to their relationship as enemies.
Additionally, he also acts as an ally of Luffy and some of his friends and allies, also for reasons to face a common enemy, during the movie One Piece: Stampede.
Smoker is a muscular, white-haired (light blue-green in the pre-timeskip anime) and brown-eyed man, with a distinct trait of always being seen smoking two cigars at once. His eyes sometimes appear red, such as during the Punk Hazard arc. He wears a large thick white and blue specialist marine jacket which he keeps open, with greenish fur lining the neck, wrists, and hem. The jacket bears the kanji for "justice" (正義,Seigi?) written on the back of it. Many cigars are strapped to the jacket. He carries a Seastone-tipped jitte as his weapon, although it has been broken twice: once during the Summit War of Marineford by Boa Hancock, and once on Punk Hazard by Vergo. He also wears brown leather gloves, blue jeans with a brown belt, and large military-issue brown leather boots. Furthermore, during his time in Arabasta, he also sported goggles. The fact that he rides a custom made motorbike gives off the impression of a delinquent marine.
In the manga, his hair has a white tone and the fur on his coat was initially blue, later changed to dark green, and ultimately modified to follow the anime, albeit with a much lighter green tone, and with green zips as well.
During his stay on an unknown island of the Grand Line, he was seen without his jacket, which he had a subordinate carry for him. During this time, he was seen keeping his jitte strapped to his back via a series of belts. A scar was visible on the right side of his chest.
After the timeskip, his hair is now longer, slicked back, and the sides have been shaved. He now sports a pair of sunglasses. He has a scar that extends from his forehead to his right eye and tapers off to the side of his face. He also added the traditional Marines' military coat over his attire, draped over his shoulders like a cape with his jitte, which has either been replaced or repaired since the Summit War of Marineford, hanging on the back; he is one of the few high-ranking marines (more specifically, a vice admiral) to not wear a conventional suit.
As a child, he sported the same hairstyle as his pre-timeskip appearance. His face is depicted as being dirty, with a runny nose and a band-aid on his forehead, looking as if he just had a brawl with someone. He wore a plain blank white shirt and had a pair of goggles around his neck. He wore a pair of simple black pants and a pair of simple black boots. He also wore a pair of mittens or boxing gloves and carried around a baseball bat with nails in it, and was accompanied by an exhausted-looking dog.
During his time as a cadet, his hair was styled into a classic military buzz cut, and he was already smoking cigars, though only had one in his mouth at a time.
In One Piece: Stampede, he wears an unbuttoned white shirt, black pants with a pink sash tied around his waist, and brown boots. He also wears a black pirate captain jacket, with the red inside.
