Taro's other outfit.

Taro is a young man of average height. He has chestnut-shaped light hair and a pair of goggles on his head. In his first outfit, he wore a pair of dark trousers and a light unbuttoned coat with popped collars.[3] In his second outfit, he wears a dark coat and underneath it a light shirt with his name, "TARO" written on it.[4]

PersonalityEdit

Taro is loyal to his captain and crew, as he charged into battle with them. Like many of his crewmates, he was initially cold towards Kozuki Oden when Roger brought him aboard, but quickly warmed up to him.[4]

Abilities and PowersEdit

WeaponsEdit

Taro wields a sword in combat.[3] He also possesses a knife which he held in his hand when the crew gave a hostile welcome to Oden.[4]

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

At some point, Taro joined the Roger Pirates. 27 years ago, he and his crew fought against the Golden Lion Pirates during the Battle of Edd War.[1]

A year later, on an island in Paradise, the Roger Pirates defeated a battalion of Marines when they spotted the Whitebeard Pirates approaching them.[5] When the Whitebeard Pirates arrived, the two crews battled each other for four days until the fight settled into a gift exchange.[3] Roger pleaded for Whitebeard to allow his subordinate Kozuki Oden to join the Roger Pirates and help them reach the final island.

When Oden and his family boarded the Oro Jackson, the crew initially treated Oden coldly, but they quickly warmed up to him as friends as they sailed to many destinations including Skypiea,[4][6] Water 7, Fish-Man Island, Wano Country, and Zou. They then made it to the final island and laughed when they saw the treasure left behind by Joy Boy.[7]

After departing from the island, named Laugh Tale by Roger, the crew had a party before tearfully bidding farewell to their captain. They then took Oden back to his home in Wano. As the crew approached Wano, Taro observed the wreckage of ships at the coastline with a pair of binoculars. After the crew tearfully said goodbye to Oden as well, the Roger Pirates disbanded, and it is unknown what became of Taro.[8]
