Gazelleman is a Gifter in the Beasts Pirates. After being tamed by Tama, he became an ally of the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance.


Gazelleman is a tall, muscular man with wide shoulders, a large chest, a thick neck, and a square jaw. He wears a skin tight dark shirt with a light colored stylized “G” with the letter’s leg resembling a “z”, with light colored long sleeves with a dark line through them. He also wears light colored gloves, a Gifter’s cape and cowl, and fishnet stockings over his gazelle like legs.


Gazelleman is somewhat cheerful, especially when he brags about his speed. He has no remorse when kidnapping a child.

After he was tamed by Tama, he became loyal and supportive to her, aiding her in turning the other Gifters into allies of the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance.

Like many other people, he has a distinct laugh: “Hohohoho”.

Gazelleman ate a Gazelle SMILE (ガゼルのSMILEスマイル, Gazeru no Sumairu?), which grants him the ability to transform his legs into that of a gazelle, enabling him to run at a great speed. He claims that he can go 200 kilometers in an hour. He appears to be lacking in stamina as he was wheezing with exhaustion after delivering Tama to Holed’em.

Gazelleman and Batman were tasked with hunting down thieves when they came across Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Tsuru, Kikunojo, and Tama at Okobore Town. While Batman shot arrows at Tsuru and the others after hearing Tsuru speak ill of Shogun Orochi, Gazelleman kidnapped Tama. He then reported to Holed’em that he had captured the girl who tamed their baboon, and Holed’em ordered Gazelleman to bring Tama to him. Gazelleman later brought Tama to Holed’em as instructed, but he was extremely exhausted after the run.
