Cover and Volume Illustration[edit | edit source]
The colored cover has a reddish pink background, and the author's name is written in dark blue.
On the front, the SMILE Factory destruction team (from right to left: Luffy, Zoro, Franky, Sanji, and Kin'emon) are lined up in their disguises. In the background are portraits of the colosseum gladiators. The portraits from right to left, top to bottom are as follows: Bellamy, Cavendish, Sai, Bartolomeo, Elizabello II, Jesus Burgess (in his Mr. Store disguise), Rebecca, Boo, and Chinjao. Suleiman and Dagama are shown, but are obscured. At the top is the statue of Kyros.
Bellamy's portrait is used for the spine, and the skull on the spine is colored reddish-orange. The title logo colorscheme uses the colors solid orange, blue, and purple.
For the volume illustration on page 3, Luffy happily munches on a large rice ball with his legs crossed and a fist in the air.
