Jobo

Jobo

Jobo is a citizen of Mock Town.

Appearance

He is a normal sized man, with stubble on his chin and upper lip. He has a large nose, and longish black hair. He wears a hat with a bandana underneath, and has a small scar under his right eye. Evidently a drunkard, his face is often flushed and lethargic-looking.

Personality

Jobo is apparently a heavy drinker, and will sometimes do his business out in public at night.

He claims to be tired of seeing more and more pirates coming to Jaya, but appears to respect Bellamy and his crew, because he warned them about the bounties on Luffy and Zoro.

History

Jaya Arc

Jobo was first formally seen urinating by the port and thanking the “god of Booze”, but was actually among those who joined in with the Bellamy Pirates when they taunted Luffy, Zoro, and Nami in the bar.

He later receives a bundle of wanted posters delivered by a sea gull flying overhead. After initially mistaking it for newspapers, he realized what they actually were and started to inspect them, eventually coming across Luffy and Zoro’s new bounties. At first, he thought that he had drunken too much when he tried to count Luffy’s bounty, but eventually realized it was no mistake and his bounty was indeed 100,000,000. Shaken to the core, he immediately ran back to Bellamy to report this recent development.

Although Bellamy concluded that the new bounties were fakes, Jobo remained cautious of the possibility that they were not. His conjectures were later proven to be true when Luffy beat the over confident captain to the ground with a single punch.

Trivia

  • Jobo is the Japanese sound effect of pouring liquid.
  • In the manga, when Jobo is greatly shocked by the new bounty on Luffy’s head, the stubble completely disappears from his face.
