Minozebra is one of the five Jailer Beasts of Impel Down. He is an “awakened” Zoan Devil Fruit user that ate a fruit that allows him to turn into a zebra.

Due to his actions, he can be considered a supporting antagonist of the Impel Down Arc.


Stuck in his Zoan form, Minozebra is a large bipedal zebra with a human abdomen, in pants. He has a runny nose and large lips like every other Jailer Beast. Also he has long elegant hair. Unlike the other Jailer Beasts, Minozebra has bored looking eyes instead of cutesy ones. He wields a long spiked ball mace.


Minozebra is described as very shy, although he is a brutal beast who regularly tortures the prisoners of Impel Down.

He acknowledges Sadi’s superiority in battle, even fearing her when she got angry over his failure.

Abilities and Powers

As one of the Jailer Beasts of Impel Down under Sadi, Minozebra is in charge of torturing and maintaining various prisoners.


He fights with a mace with spikes all around the iron ball at the end of the rod.

Devil Fruit

He has eaten an as-of-yet unnamed Zoan type Devil Fruit that allows him to become a zebra. Because he is an “Awakened Zoan”, he is able to recover rapidly even after suffering high amounts of damage. However, his Awakening is also a failure, and he has succumbed fully into an animalistic mindset.


Summit War Saga

Impel Down Arc

After knocking several prisoners in the boiling blood pot of Level 4, Minozebra joined Minorhinoceros, Minokoala, and Sadi for a meeting of the Impel Down staff regarding Monkey D. Luffy’s infiltration of the prison. Magellan ordered Sadi to take the Jailer Beasts and guard the stairway down to Level 5.

After Luffy was captured, Sadi whipped the three Jailer Beasts while they searched Level 3 for Mr. 2 Bon Kurei who had evaded capture.

During the breakout, Sadi and the three Jailer Beasts returned to Level 4 and attempted to stop the rioting. However, Crocodile put an end to Minozebra’s rampage by sending him flying with a Sables attack. After Sadi recovered from her fight with Emporio Ivankov, she whipped Minozebra and the three Jailer Beasts and ordered them to go to Level 1. They arrived in time to attack Buggy’s group, but were later defeated again by Luffy and Jinbe.
