Delacuaji is an infamous New World pirate captain who allied with Whitebeard.


Delacuaji is a round and large man with an unusual body shape, mostly hidden by the chartreuse robe he wears, which has ruffled edges on the arms and seems to cover most of his upper body, even his head, leaving only his face and hands visible. He has a round face with dark colored lips and concentric circles around his eyes, a black goatee on his chin, and teeth quite spaced out one from another, similarly to Bluejam’s. His attire also includes a light blue scarf held up by a clasp made up of three linked jewels, an indument that looks like a brown vest, and a pirate captain’s hat matching his robe, with a little skull represented on it. He carries around a saber.


Not much is known about Delacuaji’s personality other than that he is very loyal to Whitebeard since he was willing to risk his own life trying to save Ace from execution instead of fleeing through the path he had cleared with his power. He is often seen smiling.

Anime and Manga Differences

In the manga version of Whitebeard and Ace’s funeral in Chapter 590, Delacuaji cannot be seen among those in attendance. However, the anime version of the exact same scene in Episode 505 explicitly shows Delacuaji alongside the other attendees. Although it can be assumed that Delacuaji was at the funeral, there is no visual evidence of his attendance in the manga to support this assumption and, as such, his attendance can only be considered non-canon.
