Abilities and Powers

Snake is a Senior Officer of the Red Hair Pirates, giving him authority over lower-ranking members of the crew. Snake is a powerful individual himself, considering how Marine Commodore Brannew described the whole crew as having a high average of bounties. He fights using a swordsmanship style called Juggling Two Sword Style (ジャグリング二刀流, Jaguringu Nitōryū?) while using acrobatic moves and stomping kicks.


Snake wields two swords, which he juggles around while performing his acrobatic moves.
