Fuga

Fuga

Fuga is a member of the Numbers in the Beasts Pirates, representing the number “two”.

Appearance

Like the other Numbers, Fuga is immensely tall, towering over even normal giants and being similar in size to an ancient giant, though while sitting Fuga appears to be a good deal shorter than his fellow Numbers Inbi and Zanki.

Fuga has a triangle-shaped face and possesses a broad square-shaped jaw with a prominent underbite, with very little visible neck. He has a pair of curved horns which point upward, and are significantly longer than those of his fellow Numbers. His mouth contains long pointed teeth, with two pairs of longer fangs on the top and bottom of his mouth respectively. He has very long, bushy light hair, wears no clothing on his upper body. On his left shoulder is a tattoo of the daiji 贰 (“two”).

Unlike the other Numbers, Fuga has a centaur body; everything from the waist down is the body of a horse. This is due to consuming one of the Beasts Pirates’ SMILE fruits.

Personality

Fuga is very headstrong; when he noticed Scratchmen Apoo pursuing Yamato, he immediately decided to chase after him as well and create significant collateral damage in the process. That being said, Fuga is not hostile to Yamato, instead appearing to be friendly and obedient towards him.

Like the other Numbers, Fuga possesses a unique laugh which plays off his name: “Fugagagagaga”.

Abilities and Powers

As an artificial giant, Fuga possesses immense physical power and can easily break through a thick stone wall.

Devil Fruit

Fuga is a Horse SMILE (ウマのSMILEスマイル, Uma no Sumairu?) user, giving him legs and abdomen of a horse.

Weapons

Like several of his fellow Numbers and Kaidou, Fuga wields a kanabo but has yet to be shown actually using it.

History

Past

Sometime in the past, Fuga was part of an experiment on Punk Hazard that attempted to artificially recreated the ancient giants. The experiment was deemed a failure, and Fuga and his fellow test subjects were eventually bought by Kaidou, becoming known as the Numbers and residing on Onigashima.

At some point, Fuga stole and ate a SMILE from Kaidou’s room while he was hungry. Furious, Kaidou had Fuga imprisoned, and the other Numbers began making fun of him because of the horse legs he gained after eating the fruit. However, Yamato disagreed and told him that his legs were really cool. The two then became good friends.

Wano Country Saga

Wano Country Arc

Five days before the Fire Festival, the Numbers arrived in Hakumai via Mogura Harbor and headed toward Onigashima with Scratchmen Apoo.

Fuga and fellow Numbers Inbi and Zanki were eating and drinking in a Skull Dome chamber together, and were not participating in the war that broke out between the Beasts Pirates and Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance. They were eventually joined in the room by Apoo and X Drake. Apoo and Drake’s meeting was suddenly interrupted by Yamato, and when Fuga saw Apoo trying to talk to Yamato before he quickly left the room, he proceeded to burst through the wall and chase after him. When Kazenbo was making its way downwards, Fuga felt Nico Robin and Brook fall into his hair, but continued running after Yamato, who requested his help.

Fuga and Yamato made their way down to the armory, where Rokki was sleeping while guarding the gate. Following Yamato’s orders, Fuga charged headlong into Rokki, breaking down the gate in the process, and then held Rokki down, so Yamato could continue down into the armory.

Trivia

  • Fuga’s name contains the kanji for “two” (?) and the kanji for “fang” (?)
  • Fuga is the only Number to have eaten a SMILE. He is also the only member of the Beasts Pirates who is not a Gifter or a Shinuchi to possess SMILE based powers.
