Official English Name:
Takotopus Pirates are a pirate crew led by  Karma. They were a subordinate crew of the Whitebeard Pirates prior to Whitebeard's death.
Thirty years ago, the Takotopus Pirates pursued
Amatsuki Toki on an island in the New World. After being scared off by the apperance of the swollen Kozuki Oden, they returned with their captain Karma. However, Karma was easily defeated by Whitebeard.
At some point, the Takotopus Pirates became a subordinate crew of the
Whitebeard Pirates, becoming part of the giant family that Edward Newgate treasured deeply.
As one of the 43 subordinate crews, the Takotopus Pirates set out with the Whitebeard Pirates to rescue
Portgas D. Ace from execution. They set out to Marineford to fight in what would be known as the Battle of Marineford.
"Takotopus" is combination of the Japanese word "tako" and the English word "octopus".
