[5]

Relationships

Allies

Kozuki Family

Tama has great faith in the Kozuki Family, as she used their name as a threat to those who upset her.[6]

Tenguyama Hitetsu

​​As Tama's master, he cares for her very much to the point that he attacked Luffy when he thought Luffy had stolen one of the only two rice meals she has every year.[7] He was also angry at Luffy for revealing Ace's death, which made Tama sad.[8]

Friends

Komachiyo

Komachiyo is very loyal to Tama, as he tried to fight the Beasts Pirates to protect her from them.[6]

Hihimaru

While initially antagonistic, Hihimaru befriended Tama after she fed it some dango and joined her as the group headed toward Tama's home.[1]

Monkey D. Luffy

Luffy inadvertently rescued Tama when her kidnappers attacked him. Because of this, she has immense gratitude and refers to Luffy with a "big brother" honorific. She even went as far as to give him the rice she was meant to have, even though it is the most she eats all year.[1] However, Tama became furious when Luffy reported Ace's death to her.[9] After she was abducted by Gazelleman and brought to Holdem, Tama hoped for Luffy to save her, showing her faith in him.[10]

Portgas D. Ace

When Ace visited Wano, Tama formed a bond with and had faith in him due to his promise he would return to visit her. When Luffy informed her of Ace's death, Tama was deeply upset and refused to believe him.[11]

Enemies

Beasts Pirates

As an ally of the Kozuki Family, Tama defies everything the Beasts Pirates stand for and was kidnapped as a result. While being tied up in a sack, the Beasts Pirates planned to either sell her in the Red Light District or turn her in until Luffy interfered.[6]

Abilities and Powers

Weapons

Tama was shown using a club against a member of the Beasts Pirates, and had enough strength to knock him out with it.[12]

Devil Fruit

Tama's Devil Fruit Ability

Tama makes a dango from her cheek.

Tama has eaten an unnamed Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows her to create food from her body. The food is capable of taming animals,[1][13] but is unable to quel Tama's hunger and cannot be forcefully taken from her body.[14][15]

Techniques

  • Kibi Dango (きびだんご Kibi dango?): By forming a circle with her thumb and index finger and pinching her cheek, Tama creates a small dumpling, which seems to have a pacifying effect on animals that eat it, making them tame and friendly. It was first used to tame Hihimaru.[16] Kibi dango are a traditional Japanese confectionery made from millet grain.

Other Abilities

Tama has some experience with cooking rice.[17] She is also capable of weaving kasa from bamboo.[2]

History

Past

At some point around three to four years ago, Portgas D. Ace and his crew visited Wano Country, and Tama formed a bond with him. Tama wanted to go out to sea with Ace, but he told her that she was too young at the time. He promised that he would take her with him if she became a kunoichi by the time he returned and Tama waited for him since.[18][11]

On her eighth birthday, Tama went to the marketplace to buy some rice. However, she was confronted by some Beasts Pirates scouts and their baboon Hihimaru. Komachiyo came to protect her from Hihimaru, but the scouts took her belongings and she mentioned the Kozuki Family to threaten them, causing them to capture her.[6]

Wano Country Arc

Tama was tied up in a sack and begging to be free. The scouts went to confront Monkey D. Luffy, who had arrived in the country illegally. However, Luffy easily overwhelmed them, allowing Tama to free herself out of the sack and knock out one of the scouts.

Tama Takes Luffy to Her House

Tama takes Luffy to her master's house.

Afterward, Tama formally introduced herself to Luffy and tamed Hihimaru by giving it some Kibi Dango. She offered to make food for Luffy out of gratitude and helped him put the Sunny in a safe alcove on the coast. They went to her house, where she made rice confections for him before going to drink from the river to quell her hunger. She came back to find her master angered at Luffy for eating the rice, but she told him what had happened. However, she then fell ill due to drinking the contaminated river water polluted by Kaido's factories.[1]

After Hitetsu revealed that Tama was waiting for Ace, Luffy informed them of Ace's death. Tama was distraught at the news and passed out. Luffy then decided to take her to a doctor and as Komachiyo gave them a ride through the bamboo forest, Tama accused Luffy of lying and explained about the promise Ace made to her. They later entered a wasteland and Tama explained about the terrible environment created by the Beasts Pirates before falling unconscious again.[19]

Tama Eats Tsuru's Food

Tama eats some real food as she recovers from her illness.

Tama remained unconscious as Luffy reunited with Zoro after the latter saved a woman from Kaido's thugs. After Komachiyo dragged Luffy and Zoro away from a battle with Basil Hawkins and his men, the woman that Zoro saved, Tsuru, told the two Straw Hats to bring Tama to her tea shop. They later arrived at Okobore Town.[20]

Tama felt better after receiving some medicine and she reluctantly ate delicious food that Tsuru made for her. She then took a nap until Tsuru was attacked by the Gifter Batman. During the confusion, Tama was abducted by another Gifter, Gazelleman, and taken to Bakura Town.[21] Tama was later taken to Holdem, who took an interest in her after hearing that she tamed Hihimaru, and planned to force her to use her ability.[22]

Holdem pulled on Tama's cheek, but was unable to get anything out of her. He continued torturing Tama until Urashima was sent flying into his house by Luffy. Holdem then confronted Luffy, putting Tama into his lion's mouth and threatening to crush her.[23]

Trivia

  • Tama speaks with an Edo and a Tōhoku dialect.
  • Her Devil Fruit power seems to be based on Momotarō of Japanese folklore, who also used kibi dango to recruit his three beastly retainers: a dog, a monkey, and a pheasant. So far, Tama is known to have befriended two of the same three types of animals that Momotarō has; only the pheasant is missing.
  • The way Tama uses her Devil Fruit is reminiscent of the old Japanese tale Lump-removing Old Man, a tale in which an old man befriends ogres who then removes a lump on his right cheek.
  • Her unnamed Devil Fruit bears similarity to Streusen's Kuku Kuku no Mi, as they both are capable of creating food. However, while Tama's food is delicious, it doesn't alleviate hunger while Streusen can eat his own food but it has a foul flavor.
  • Tama has a tanuki-shaped tea kettle, which may be a reference to the folktale Bunbuku Chagama.[17]
