Bonk Punch

Bonk Punch is one of the Senior Officers and musicians of the Red Hair Pirates.


Punch is a very tall, burly man with a bald head, a scar that goes down the left part of his face, neck and upper torso and dark rings around his eyes. He wears a basic shirt with a ruffled collar and rolled up sleeves, a pair of sandals and tends to have Monster perched over his shoulders. He is also shown wearing a backpack during the events of the From the Decks of the World: The 500,000,000 Man Arc.

In his first appearance in Luffy’s childhood, he was considerably slimmer and displayed a different attire, like a striped shirt and a sash.


Like many of his fellow Red Hair crew members, Punch enjoys partying, drinking, and the pirate life.
