Charlotte Kanten

Charlotte Kanten

Charlotte Kanten is the 27th son and 48th child of the Charlotte Family and the eldest triplet brother of Kato and Montb. He is also an officer of the Big Mom Pirates and serves as Totto Land’s Minister of Agar (寒天大臣, Kanten Daijin?), governing over Jelly Island.


Kanten is a very obese man with a wide head and no neck. The top of his head is longer and shaft-shaped, and is covered by bandages that also cover his right eye. His mouth contains only a few teeth that are spaced widely apart. He has extremely long and curly dark green hair that reaches to the small of his back and is wider than his body. He does not wear a shirt, only wearing black pants with an X-shaped belt that resembles caution tape, as well as bandages around his arms.


Not much is known about Kanten’s personality. Having taken part in Big Mom’s plan to assassinate the Vinsmoke Family, he can be considered to be very loyal to his family and crew.

As the Minister of Agar, Kanten has authority over Jelly Island, and as an officer of the Big Mom Pirates, Kanten has authority over lower-ranking members of his crew.

Physical Abilities

Kanten has at least decent physical strength, as he was briefly able to hold his own in a clash with Vinsmoke Ichiji, a powerful superhuman fighter who had his Raid Suit on.


He appeared to wield a rapier while confronting Ichiji.

In the anime, he was shown shooting liquid substances to Nami, Chopper, and Carrot.


Whole Cake Island Saga

Whole Cake Island Arc

Kanten attended the Tea Party and wedding between Sanji and Charlotte Pudding, where he took part in Big Mom’s plan to assassinate the Vinsmoke Family. He was confused by Pudding’s actions at the altar.

As the alliance’s plan backfired, Kanten witnessed Capone Bege using his Big Father form, before Big Mom attacked the traitor. He confronted Vinsmoke Ichiji while Caesar Clown carried Bege away, before losing his balance as the Whole Cake Chateau shook.
