One Piece Wiki

Snake-Eyes Yatappe is a yakuza boss who was in charge of the Kibi region in Wano Country. He was imprisoned in Udon by the Beasts Pirates, but was freed when Luffy took over the prison.[1][2]


Yatappe is an average size man, with long dark purple wavy hair and thick sideburns. His mustache and beard form a circle around his mouth. He has thick lips, a thin nose, and a circular scar over his right eye.[1]

Being a yakuza boss, he had the respect of his followers from Kibi, as well as the other yakuza bosses of his time, being able to work alongside them.[2] He seems to highly respect Hyogoro, and would threaten those who offend the elder as well as obey his commands.[1]

Abilities and Powers

Physical Abilities

Yatappe seems to have enough strength to hold down a struggling Luffy while the latter is being punished for his rudeness.[1]


Yatappe wielded a katana during the Onigashima raid, so it can be assumed he's proficient with it.



At a certain point in his past, he became the yakuza boss of the Kibi region of Wano Country. After the Beasts Pirates took over the country, he opposed them and ended up in the Prisoner Mine in Udon.[1][2]

Four Emperors Saga

Wano Country Arc

After Monkey D. Luffy led a rebellion in the prison, Yatappe was freed with the rest of the prisoners. The yakuza bosses later approached Hyogoro to show him respect, and upon seeing Luffy's casual way of addressing Hyogoro, they tried to punish Luffy, only to be stopped by Hyogoro. The bosses then let Luffy go and left to recruit their followers from across Wano.[1]

Yatappe later joined up with the Rebel Command Squad in the Kibi region where he deciphered the meaning of Shimotsuki Yasuie's last message.[3] Two days before the raid on Onigashima, Yatappe and the other yakuza bosses contacted Kin'emon and informed him of the number of allies they had recruited.[4]

The rebels gathered at Habu Port, and on the day of the Fire Festival, they joined the Nine Red Scabbards at Tokage Port on a fleet of ships.[5]

After arriving at Onigashima, the rebels were given Beasts Pirates disguises by Kin'emon. Yatappe and his group later infiltrated the Live Floor. When the Scabbards and Izou launched a surprise attack on Kaidou, the rebels revealed themselves as the all-out war on the Beasts Pirates began.[6] As the battle at the Live Floor raged on, the yakuza bosses planned to go after the Tobiroppo.[7]

As Tony Tony Chopper began mass-producing the antidote for the Ice Oni virus, the yakuza bosses and X Drake volunteered to guard him.[8] During the struggle, Hyogoro got infected by the virus but physically returned to his prime self. After Hyogoro defeated the Mimawarigumi, he ordered Yatappe to end his life before he could completely transform into an ice oni.[9] Yatappe hesitated and, after composing himself, swung the blade down, but Chopper stopped it and administered the antidote to Hyogoro. As Chopper slapped Queen and exclaimed that he was not a "tanuki", Yatappe inwardly apologized for having called him such.[10]
