One Piece Wiki

For the resort island, see Ukkari Hot-Spring Island.

Seaman Recruit Ukkari[3] is a Marine soldier who serves at the Shells Town Marine Base.[1]


Ukkari is a short man. He wears the standard Marine uniform: a white sleeveless shirt and hat.[1]


Like all other Marines in Shells Town, Ukkari hated and feared Captain Morgan. Ukkari became very happy when Luffy defeated Morgan.[citation needed]


East Blue Saga

Romance Dawn Arc

He lightly scratched Morgan's statue as he was raising it up. Morgan decided to kill him for the scratch, but before Morgan was able to do so, Luffy showed up on the roof and accidentally destroyed the statue.[4]

When Morgan was defeated, Ukkari cheered alongside his fellow Marines.[5]

Translation and Dub Issues

His name is a katakana rendition of the Japanese term for "careless" (浮かり Ukari?, lit. "floaty"). Viz Media's official One Piece translator Stephen Paul informally translated this as "Carelesso"[6], which was later adopted by Shueisha's official website for the 7th popularity poll.[7]


  • The manga would later use a pure-hiragana rendition of "Ukkari" (うっかり?) as Gedatsu's catchphrase, referencing both his fighting style and his bizarre personality. This, in turn, led to the naming of Ukkari Hot-Spring Island.
