Gyogyo is a member of the Bonney Pirates. He was once a resident of the Sorbet Kingdom, having been a friend of Bartholomew Kuma and Ginny since childhood.

After the Summit War of Marineford, he was arrested by Admiral Akainu following his crew’s defeat against the Blackbeard Pirates.


Gyogyo is an overweight man with large lips, freckles, a bulbous nose and a full beard. He has tribal tattoos on his biceps.

Gyogyo wears a tank top with the phrase “GREAT MAN” printed on it, trousers with a pair of suspenders, and a cowboy hat.


As a child, Gyogyo was once somewhat of a bully, throwing rocks at Kuma because he thought the boy was lying about his age. However, after Kuma used his powers to heal Gyogyo from Ginny’s assault, they became friends.

Gyogyo was attracted to Ginny like many of the boys in Sorbet. He was also fiercely loyal to Kuma, starting riots at the kingdom’s Castle Town after Kuma was unjustly imprisoned for protesting the enslavement of citizens.

Abilities and Powers

Gyogyo’s overall abilities are unknown, but Conney stated that he was quite formidable in a fight, saying that other pirates and sea beasts would run at the sight of his strength. He has been seen fighting with a rope twirled like a lasso, but it is unknown how skilled he is with it. Despite this, however, he is clearly no match for the strength of the Blackbeard Pirates.



Gyogyo grew up in the Sorbet Kingdom. As a child, he and another boy threw rocks at Bartholomew Kuma because they did not believe the unusually large boy was really nine years old. The boys were subsequently heavily beaten up by Ginny. However, Kuma showed compassion towards them and pushed away their pain. Afterwards, Gyogyo and the other boy befriended Kuma and Ginny and helped them carry wood to sell it.

25 years ago, Gyogyo was smitten with Ginny and once brought fish to Kuma’s church to gift to her. 22 years ago, Gyogyo and other men joined Ginny in an attempt to free Kuma from jail, but the group was defeated and arrested. They were freed when Monkey D. Dragon and the Freedom Fighters overthrew the corrupt king Bekori.

Over 7 years ago, while visiting Kuma in his now light-proofed church, Gyogyo learned that Ginny’s daughter, Bonney, had started developing Sapphire Scales symptoms. He then started looking for doctors around the kingdom that could help in identifying and treating it.

6 years ago, Gyogyo witnessed Bonney using her Toshi Toshi no Mi for the first time and tried to help her figure out how to control her aging. He also received the news about Bekori’s possible return and the false propaganda he was spreading about Kuma’s reign, complaining that the ousted king was distorting the facts to blame Kuma for his own atrocities.

3 and a half years ago, Gyogyo welcomed Bonney back to the kingdom after her six-month treatment at Egghead. Half a year later, Gyogyo celebrated Bonney’s 9th birthday party alongside her other friends. During this time, Gyogyo would sometimes keep Bonney’s company by playing Jenga or having sparring matches with her.

At some point following this, he was asked by Conney to accompany Bonney on her escape from the World Government’s “protection” of her. After remodelling their fishing ship into a pirate ship, Gyogyo and the other fishermen of Sorbet waited for Bonney at a port and quickly set sail when she arrived. Soon after, they witnessed Bonney taking down a pursuing Alpha and cheered for her.

When Bonney began crying after Squard attacked Whitebeard, Gyogyo tried to calm her down, only to be rejected.

After the war, Bonney renewed her quest for vengance, and the crew headed to the New World. The Bonney Pirates made it to the New World, where they encountered the Blackbeard Pirates and were subsequently defeated and tied up. They were then arrested by Admiral Akainu and the Marines.
