For the One Piece Odyssey character, see Ikidaore Joseph.

Joseph is a masked agent of CP0 and a Longarm tribesman.

Due to his actions and role, he is a supporting antagonist during the Wano Country Arc.


Joseph is a tall, lanky agent. He appears to have double-jointed elbows, making him part of the Longarm Tribe. He wears a light colored mask with dark streaks running down its right side, darkened lips and nose, and framed with petal-like adornments. He also sports a vertically striped red and white top hat. Like most CP0 members, he wears a white suit and cape (a frilly one in his case).


Like most of CP0’s agents, Joseph is professional and prioritizes his missions above all else.

In spite of his emotionless disposition, Joseph appears to care for his fellow CP0 agents to an extent, having silently acknowledged and mourned the sacrifice of one of his peers.

Abilities and Powers

Joseph’s overall abilities remain mostly unseen. However, the fact he wears a mask puts him among the top operatives of CP0, according to Nico Robin. He appeared to be completely unharmed after being shot in the head by Kurozumi Orochi.


Main article: Rokushiki

Being an agent of CP0, the elite Cipher Pol agency, Joseph can be assumed to be a master assassin and user of Rokushiki. He was shown to have access to at least Geppo, which he used to escape from Onigashima.


Dressrosa Saga

Dressrosa Arc

The CP0 agents Joseph, Guernica, and Gismonda traveled to Dressrosa in order to dismiss the previously reported revocation of Donquixote Doflamingo from the Seven Warlords of the Sea as a printing mistake to the country’s population. They also insisted that the citizens remain quiet about this until the new report was published.

The three agents later wandered around the island and were spotted by Nico Robin, Trafalgar Law, Caesar Clown, and Usopp.

Wano Country Saga

The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.

One Piece: Stampede

He joined the other members of CP0 after the Pirates Festival, and watched as Lucci reported the incident after Douglas Bullet’s defeat.

Concludes non-canon section.

Wano Country Arc

In the Flower Capital, Joseph, Guernica, and Maha negotiated with Shogun Kurozumi Orochi about the new supply of weapons to the World Government after the arrest of Donquixote Doflamingo. Due to Orochi’s surreal demands, CP0 was unable to agree to his terms.

On the day of the Fire Festival, the three agents stayed in Onigashima’s guest room and used a Go board to track the forces during the raid on Onigashima, with Joseph in particular praising the planning and execution of the raid from the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance. Joseph also discussed Who’s-Who’s situation as a former Cipher Pol agent and how they should deal with him, although he did not think there was much harm in Who’s-Who’s survival due to his classified intel being relatively outdated.

After hearing about the events of the battle that took place and seeing how little by little the numbers of the rebels were assimilating those of their enemies, the agents received priority orders through Rob Lucci to capture Nico Robin, with Joseph staying behind to keep tabs on the raid as the other two went after her. After Guernica and Maha lost sight of Robin, Joseph called and informed them about the great defeats produced on Kaidou’s side, as well as the massive implications that a loss from the Four Emperors would mean to the current state of the world.

Later, after Izou confronted the two field CP0 agents, Joseph once more called Guernica and informed him about the new directives from the Five Elders to interfere in Luffy and Kaidou’s fight in order to prevent a certain awakening from occurring, acknowledging that it was essentially a suicide mission that his partner had to take. Once Guernica completed his objective to sabotage Luffy and brutally attacked by Kaidou, Joseph silently mourned him.

Using Geppo, Joseph eventually escaped from Onigashima and regrouped with the World Government fleet that was stationed right outside Wano. He contacted the Five Elders and informed them about the return of Nika, assuring his superiors that he would capture Nico Robin as previously ordered to. After that, someone hijacked his call and ordered Joseph and the fleet to remain in position until the mystery caller arrived.

Joseph’s contact with the Five Elders was eventually cut off due to a confrontation with the Big Mom Pirates.


  • His name may be derived from Geoges de La Tour’s oil painting Joseph the Carpenter, following the art-based naming theme of the CP0 agents.
