Tansui is a member of the Macro Pirates[1] and a former member of the Sun Pirates.[3] He is an arowana fish-man.[2]

Appearance

Tansui as a Sun Pirate.

As an arowana fish-man, Tansui has a very wide build. He has very pale pink skin and a large lower jaw. He has scales on the back of his head. He wears necklaces, a green fur cloak, a pair of swim briefs, and belt, which has written the word "Alowana" on it.[1] During his time as a Sun Pirate, he wore a vertically striped cloak.[3]

Personality

His talk is very open-minded, to the ire of Macro, and even to Duval himself. Unlike most other fish-men seen in the series, Tansui and the other Macro Pirates have no qualms selling other fish-men and merfolk to slavery.[4]

Abilities and Powers

As a fish-man, Tansui is ten times stronger than a human and twice that underwater. He can be considered rather weak as Hatchan defeated him as well as the other two Macro pirates easily.[5][6]

Fish-Man Karate

He is apparently able to use Fish-Man Karate; although his skills are never seen as he is beaten before he can use them.[6]

Weapons

During his time with the Sun Pirates, Tansui wielded a dagger.[3]

History

Past

Tansui was among the fish-men who joined the Sun Pirates and repeatedly attacked the Marines.[3] One day a former human slave named Koala boarded their ship to return to her home in Foolshout Island. During her time with the Sun Pirates, Tansui, Gyaro, and Macro got attached to the girl. When she finally returned to her home, the three fish-men emotionally cried during her farewell. After Koala returned to her family, the Sun Pirates were ambushed by the Marines. The fish-men lost their ship and Tiger was badly wounded during the battle. They managed to commandeer a Marine ship, but Tiger soon died from his injuries.[7]

After Arlong was later captured, the Sun Pirates was captained by Jinbe. When Jinbe accepted the World Government's offer to become a Warlord of the Sea, Arlong was released from prison and chose to form his own crew, and Macro, Gyaro, and Tansui did the same, forming the Macro Pirates.[8] The Macro Pirates turned to kidnapping[9] and participating in the slave market.[4]

Arabasta Saga

Hatchan's Sea-Floor Stroll

Several years later, the Macro Pirates reunited with Hatchan and gave him a treasure map in exchange for Camie.[10] However, due to Hatchan thinking the map was a fake, he returned to trash the crew's ship and rescue Camie, resulting in the crew holding a grudge against the octopus fish-man.[11]

Summit War Saga

Sabaody Archipelago Arc

Hatchan defeats the Macro Pirates again.

Working with Duval and the Flying Fish Riders, Tansui and his crew managed to capture Hatchan in order to lure Camie and the Straw Hat Pirates into the Flying Fish Riders' base.[12] When Camie and Pappag dove into the water, the Macro Pirates were waiting and caught them, but Monkey D. Luffy easily stole them back.[13] After Roronoa Zoro freed Hatchan, the octopus fish-man sent the Macro Pirates flying with one punch each.[14]
