Mikazuki is the captain and only named member of the Big Helmet Pirates. He has a bounty of 36,000,000.


He wears a large spherical helmet similar to Kokoro’s, apart from the fact that it has a crescent moon on it. He also has large canine teeth resembling a demon. His facial appearance is that of a middle aged man and his hair color is white.


He was shown to be arrogant, demanding and ungrateful when he refused to pay for his ship repairs, because of the length of time it took to repair it. He tried to threaten the shipwrights with brute force when they tried to make him pay.

Abilities and Powers

With a bounty of 36,000,000 and having made it through the Grand Line to Water 7, Mikazuki is a considerable pirate by the first half of the Grand Line’s standards. However, he stood no chance whatsoever against the workers of Galley-La.


Mikazuki used a sword to threaten Paulie.


Water 7 Arc

Mikazuki first appeared at Galley-La Dock 1 when the company had finished their work on his ship. Although he said that he was grateful that they had repaired his ship, he claimed that the repairs were overpriced, and as such, refused to pay the fees. He then threatened Paulie with his sword and thanked him for the free repairs. Paulie then warned him that he should be careful of who he was threatening, and the shipwrights swiftly knocked Mikazuki and his crew out.

Post-Enies Lobby Arc

Although he had been defeated by Galley-La, Mikazuki was not handed over to the authorities to collect the bounty for the repair fees. Instead, he was forced to work under the loansharks to earn enough money to pay for the repairs. As such, when the loansharks encountered Zoro during their first attempt to collect money from the orphanage’s Aunt, they hired Mikazuki to act as their fighter in case they would encounter him again.

During the loansharks second attempt, Mikazuki was ordered to threaten Aunt and make her pay. He and Aunt engaged in a battle, but were then interrupted by Zoro. Seeing the swordsman, Mikazuki attempted to attack him, but was easily blown away by Zoro’s Nanajuni Pound Ho.
