Stronger is the name of the horse that Doc Q rides on. Because Doc Q is seemingly always sick, he rides on Stronger all the time, since the doctor tends to collapse if left unsupported for some time. However, Stronger is just as sick as he is. He is classified as a Type A creature, "Big Friendly".
Stronger is a pale blue horse with very long legs. He has a white mane that covers his eyes. His ears also stick up out of the unruly mane and he wears a thin brown bridle.
Stronger is very loyal to his rider, Doc Q, as he is always seen carrying him, whether during a fight with Ace or after being poisoned by Magellan. He, like his owner, seems to always be sick.
Abilities and Powers
Despite being a very sick horse, Stonger has the strength and stamina to carry around Doc Q for an extended period of time and only succumbed to exhaustion on an occasional basis. He can also gallop with extraordinary speed while carrying his master as shown in the anime when Teach ordered his crew to kill Whitebeard, Stronger enabled his master to land a hit on Whitebeard after Shiliew. Despite his sickly constitution, Stronger has great endurance, being completely submerged in Magellan's deadly venom and also took a shockwave attack from Sengoku.
