Hihimaru

Hihimaru is a baboon that was formerly a guard for the Beasts Pirates before being tamed by Tama.

Appearance

Hihimaru is an extremely large baboon that towers over average-sized humans. It has white fur.

Personality

Hihimaru is very ferocious and is eager to get into fights. It is difficult to tame, but Tama managed to tame it with her powers.

Abilities and Powers

Hihimaru possesses a great amount of strength, and is well-known for it by the residents of Kuri, being called the “raging baboon of the mountain”. It had developed a great reputation while serving the Beasts Pirates, and its keepers were concerned at it being tarnished when the komainu Komachiyo put up a fight against it. Its loss was seen as significant by the Beasts Pirates, and caused them to take an interest in Tama and her taming powers. Tama is confident enough that he can delay both Page One and Ulti at the same time for three minutes. In the anime, Hihimaru was struck by Page One’s ancient zoan form and continued to fight, implying great endurance.

Weapons

Hihimaru wields a very large katana.

History

Wano Country Saga

Wano Country Arc

A group of Beasts Pirates and Hihimaru threatened a young girl named Tama when she ended up mentioning the Kozuki Family, and the komainu Komachiyo attacked Hihimaru to protect her. The two fought viciously, and Hihimaru threw Komachiyo into the Thousand Sunny. The Beasts Pirates told Hihimaru to go after the nearby Monkey D. Luffy after Luffy attacked them, but Hihimaru quickly became subdued when facing Luffy. Tama then offered Hihimaru some kibi-dango, which tamed the baboon. Luffy and Tama then rode Hihimaru and Komachiyo to Amigasa Village, the home of Tama and her master. When Tama became sick from drinking contaminated water, Hihimaru remained in the village, while Luffy and Komachiyo carried Tama to a nearby town.

Hihimaru remained in the village after Tama, Kiku, Kozuki Momonosuke, and Tony Tony Chopper left the village to go for a walk to Kuri Beach. The baboon listened as Hitetsu spoke to them through a Smart Tanishi.

On the day before the raid on Onigashima, Hihimaru watched as Momonosuke and his group left Amigasa Village. The next day, Hihimaru boarded an enemy ship with Tama and Komachiyo and headed to Onigashima. Hihimaru followed the other two into the Skull Dome, and on Tama’s command, he attacked the Tobiroppo Page One and Ulti so that Tama and Komachiyo could flee with Usopp and Nami. The baboon was later defeated by the two Tobiroppo.
