Ukon is a samurai who allied with the Kozuki Family. After waiting 20 years for the return of the Nine Red Scabbards, he affiliated with the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance to raid Onigashima.
Ukon is a tall, fair-skinned man who is almost twice Usopp's height. He has blonde puffy hair tie up in a chonmage, sideburns that extend down to his jawline, a pointed nose, slim eyes, and black eyebrows. He wears a grey kimono with a slate-colored square pattern on it, and a light green cloak with a darker green, blotchy patterns on the sleeves and bottom of the cape. He also wears geta with a dark-colored strap and has a reverse crescent moon tattoo on his ankle.
Ukon was caught off guard when a slip of paper appeared in his cloak and was surprised further by the message on it. He is loyal to the Kozuki Family, and he was delighted with the opportunity to fight alongside his comrades again. He was terrified of Big Mom's power, with his jaw dropped and eyes bulging out in disbelief, but due to his isolation on Wano Country, he did not know who she was.
