One Piece Wiki

Vice Admiral Stainless[3] is a Marine officer who participated in the Summit War of Marineford. In the anime, his name was said to be Kaizeruhige (カイゼルヒゲ Kaizeruhige?).[4]


Stainless is a tall man standing at a similar height to Momonga, who is 8'3 or 251 cm, he is also a well built individual. His most distinctive feature is his handlebar mustache. His hair is black and combed back with a scalp lock, but by the time at the meeting in Mary Geoise, it was more straightly combed.

He dresses in the typical garb of many high-ranking Marines: when discussing about Luffy and later Crocodile's replacement, he wore a purple suit (which was striped during the first meeting, but not during the second), but during Marineford, he changes to a yellow and black striped suit over a dark red shirt with an orange tie. He wears a marine coat hanging from his shoulders like a cape.

As a Marine, Stainless has a strong sense of justice. He does not like Doflamingo and his actions, as the pirate manipulated his associate to attack him, causing both vice admirals to become panicked and confused. It is unknown whether he believes in moral justice or absolute justice.

Abilities and Powers

As a vice admiral, Stainless is capable of commanding a Buster Call alongside four other vice admirals. He also has command over lower-ranking subordinates.


He carries a katana during the battle of Marineford, like most of the vice admirals. His exact level of swordsmanship remains unknown; however, it is presumably quite high, with him being a vice admiral.


It was stated that all vice admirals possess Haki,[5] so Stainless can also use the ability.

Stainless attended a meeting in Mary Geoise to determine a new Warlord of the Sea after Crocodile's dismissal. Vice Admiral Mozambia was then manipulated by Donquixote Doflamingo to attempt to strangle Stainless. He struggled against the officer, not knowing that it was Doflamingo's doing.

He also drew out a sword later on to prevent another officer (who was also manipulated by Doflamingo) from attacking him. The quarrel was stopped by Sengoku's arrival.[2]

  • Kaizeruhige is Japanese for "kaiser mustache", which in turn means "handlebar mustache", which made him the fourth character nicknamed after his facial hair.
