He is an ally of the Straw Hat Pirates during the Syrup Village Arc.


Piiman is a boy with dark hair wearing a pepper-shaped hat. He wears a lightly green short sleeves shirt with the Usopp Pirates Jolly Roger on the front. He also wears a light blue sash, dark blue pants, and black shoes with grey laces, and grey on the bottom and very top.

After two years, he has grown taller. He wears round goggles, and a short sleeved dark colored shirt with the Usopp Pirates Jolly Roger on the left side of the chest. He wears a sash and light colored calve length pants, with light colored shoes.


He is very loyal to Usopp and is very brave, standing up to Jango in Kaya’s defense. His dream is to become a carpenter.

Abilities and Powers

Piiman uses a baseball bat as a weapon during his attack against the Black Cat Pirates.

He is shown to be very durable as he survived attacks from Jango.
