On the front, Sugar is at the center of the background eating grapes, with Trebol on her left side and Senor Pink and his groupies on her right. In front of Sugar, Luffy runs on top of Pica, carrying Thunder Soldier with his right arm and Viola with his left. To the left of them is Usopp and to the right is Franky.
Sugar and Trebol are featured on the spine, and the skull on the spine is colored light purple. The title logo colorscheme uses the colors pink (fading from white), hot pink, and white.
