Thriller Bark

Further information: Thriller Bark

Thriller Bark.

Thriller Bark was the ship that gave name to the Thriller Bark Pirates. It was an island that was transformed into a ship by Moria, and served as a ship for the crew until they defeat against the Straw Hat Pirates, although it seems to be later reclaimed by Moria who used it to travel to Pirate Island.

Escapee Ship

Thriller Bark's escapee ship.

After Gecko Moria’s defeat, Hogback and Absalom were seen escaping from Thriller Bark (along with the still unconscious shichibukai) in a smaller ship with black sails and a bat figurehead.[4]

At the beginning of the Dressrosa Arc, the ship was seen leaving the Kid Pirates’ base carrying two people.[5]


Flash Barrel

Thriller Bark's Flash Barrel fished out by the Straw Hats.

A Flash Barrel is a barrel that contains the red flare inside used to signal Thriller Bark. It floats on the ocean at the entrance of the Florian Triangle, waiting for any passing ships. Whenever opened it will shoot out a red flare after which Perona's Ghost Network will start spying on them. This was a clever trick to pull sailors to Thriller Bark.[6]

Purified Sea Salt

Purified Sea Salt is simply salt extracted from the sea, and purified. However, they play a crucial role in defeating the zombies on Thriller Bark. Since salt is an extract from the sea, it can be used to cancel the Kage Kage no Mi's shadow-extracting powers, and purify the zombies, rendering them a husk once again. The amount of salt needed to feed a zombie is proportional to its size, as Oars was immune to a small pellet of salt shot into his mouth.



Little is known about the crew's past. In the West Blue, Gecko Moria transformed the island Thriller Bark in a ship, and formed a crew reuniting to Absalom, Perona, and Hogback, that began to be called the "Mysterious Four".

Eventually, Moria became a Shichibukai, and in the Florian Triangle they began to gather shadows from the people to create an army of zombies.

Thriller Bark Arc

After the Straw Hat Pirates arrived at Thriller Bark, Moria stole the shadows of several of the members, and gave life to Oars thanks to Luffy's shadow. Finally, the Mysterious Four ended up being defeated, and the zombies returned to be lifeless bodies after the defeat of Moria.

While Perona was transported because of Kuma's abilities, Hogback and Absalom fled in the Escapee Ship with Moria unconscious.

After their defeat

After Kuma used his powers in her, Perona was in Kuraigana Island. While Moria was called to Marineford to fight in the war against Whitebeard. However, after the war he ended up being expelled from the Shichibukai.

During the Timeskip

At some point, Moria recovered Thriller Bark. While Absalom became a popular journalist under the nickname "Absa".

Wano Country Arc

After discovering news about Moria and her new army of zombies in the newspaper, Perona went on his search. In Pirate Island, Moria was looking for Teach, and when he met the Blackbeard Pirates, he discovered that Absalom was defeated by them.
