Daikoku is a ninja and a member of the Beasts Pirates. He previously was a member of the Orochi Oniwabanshu which served the shogun of Wano Country, Kurozumi Orochi.

Due to his actions and role, he is a minor antagonist in the Wano Country Arc.


Daikoku is a large man with a massive mane of light red hair that stretches down his back and chest. He wears a dark navy blue kimono, two large purple shoulder pauldrons, and a purple headpiece on his head that has horns resembling those of a bull.


Like the other members of the Orochi Oniwabanshu, Daikoku is loyal to the shogun Orochi to a fault, as he refused to take action against the shogun even when he was threatening his own allies in a mad rampage since he believes Orochi can do whatever he wants. He was also very intent on capturing the intruder Nico Robin upon finding her. He can be shaken by things he does not understand, as shown when he witnessed Robin’s and Brook’s Devil Fruit abilities.

Abilities and Powers

As a member of the Orochi Oniwabanshu, Daikoku is an extremely skilled ninja, being capable of stealthily sneaking up on Robin unnoticed along with the rest of the Oniwabanshu, as well as sneaking through a crowded banquet hall without drawing attention. He is acrobatic enough, as he was seen crawling on the ceiling when he spotted Robin in the banquet hall. He also appears to possess some degree of durability as he quickly recovered from a Gigantesco Mano attack. Daikoku has some authority in the Oniwabanshu as he ordered Fujin and Raijin to chase after Hiyori.

His specialty is “Transformation” (変化, Henge?).


Daikoku carries a large katana, but has not been shown using it.



20 years ago, he was present in the Flower Capital to witness Kozuki Oden’s execution. When Shinobu began telling the truth behind Oden’s foolish behavior, the Oniwabanshu appeared behind her and stopped her talking.

Wano Country Saga

Wano Country Arc

After seeing the geisha O-Robi suspiciously sneaking around Orochi Castle during Orochi’s banquet, Daikoku and the rest of the Orochi Oniwabanshu snuck up on her body double and cornered her in a room. Robin’s body double was given a chance to explain herself, and she claimed to be Ushimitsu Kozo, causing the Oniwabanshu to move to capture her as Daikoku revealed that Ushimitsu Kozo had already appeared in the capital that day. Robin’s body double then disappeared, and the Oniwabanshu spread out to Orochi’s banquet to look for her. When Robin ran away with the young girl Toko after the latter created an incident with Orochi, Daikoku spotted her and alerted his comrades.

Some of Orochi’s banquet guests asked Daikoku to stop the rampaging Orochi, but he refused, saying capturing the intruder was more important. Daikoku then watched as Brook overwhelmed Fujin and Raijin before he was overpowered by a giant hand created by Robin. He and some other ninja were then chased by Brook, and they eventually realized that the skeleton would not attack them, but then Nami attacked the room with a massive thunderclap.

Daikoku later stood guard at the prison in the Rasetsu District where Shimotsuki Yasuie was held and scheduled for execution, watching as the former daimyo was killed. After Roronoa Zoro attacked Orochi, Daikoku ordered the firing squad to shoot at the swordsman, but Franky blocked the bullets with his body. After the Straw Hat Pirates began a commotion, Daikoku ordered Fujin and Raijin to pursue a woman that was seen with Zoro. They were about to capture her but she was rescued by Zoro, confirming that she was an ally to Zoro.

On the day of the Fire Festival, Daikoku accompanied Orochi to Onigashima. After Kaidou disposed of Orochi, the Oniwabanshu pledged their loyalty to the Emperor.

As the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance waged war in Kaidou’s stronghold, the Oniwabanshu fought against the rebels. After Queen unleashed the Ice Oni virus, Daikoku and his allies found themselves under attack by those infected. They were surprised to see that Hyogoro’s infection had restored him to his former stature and strength. The legendary yakuza defeated most of the Oniwabanshu, including Daikoku and Kazekage, as well as the Mimawarigumi.
