Poker is a Shinuchi in the Beasts Pirates. During the raid on Onigashima, he was tamed by the power of the Kibi Kibi no Mi and joined the side of the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance.


Poker is a rather big man with extremely long light blue hair that reaches down to the floor and drapes over his eyes. He has a pair of bull-like horns on his head and his tongue, due to his Devil Fruit transformation, is forked and also appeared to have two bumps on his chin possibly the appearance of the rattlesnakes’ rattle. The only items of clothing he wears are a small, open waistcoat, a loincloth with a belt, and spiked wristbands on both arms and also appears to have a tattoo on his right upper arm that is covered with a bandage into a shape of an X. His legs are transformed into the beginning and end parts of a rattlesnake due to his SMILE transformation, with the middle part spanning over his head between the shoulders.


Poker cares greatly about his position in the Beasts Pirates, wanting to maintain a good reputation by stopping their opponents and even hoping to be promoted to the Tobiroppo by defeating powerful enemies. After he becomes tamed by Tama’s Devil Fruit powers, he becomes a loyal fighter for her and the alliance and willingly helps out Jinbe by fighting Who’s-Who’s men.

Abilities and Powers

As a Shinuchi, Poker has authority over lower-ranking members of the Beasts Pirates.

Devil Fruit

Poker ate a Rattlesnake SMILE (ガラガラヘビのSMILEスマイル, Garagarahebi no Sumairu?), which transformed various parts of his body into parts of a rattlesnake. His left leg became the start of the snake, complete with a sentient head, while his right leg turned into the snake’s tail including the rattler at the end. The middle part of the snake starts at his left shoulder and arcs over his head before ending at his right shoulder. Additionally, his own tongue became forked, and his chin resembles a rattler.

In combat, Poker has been shown using his left leg’s snake head foot to bite opponents. In the Anime, he was able to withstand being punched by Eustass Kid, showing some degree of durability.



Poker was stationed on Onigashima when Portgas D. Ace invaded the island four years ago. He, along with Babanuki and Briscola, watched in horror as Yamato broke the dragon statue that symbolized Kaidou’s power.

Wano Country Arc

When the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance invaded Onigashima on the day of the Fire Festival, Poker and Mizerka were stationed on the third level at the base of the stairs to the fourth level. Although Eustass Kid managed to get by them, the duo received a report that Monkey D. Luffy and his group were headed their way. Poker looked forward to taking on Luffy to keep his reputation intact and to be promoted to the Tobiroppo. To their surprise, Luffy never arrived as his allies had built a ladder to the fourth level elsewhere.

Later, Daifugo forced Poker to eat one of Kurozumi Tama’s kibi dangos. Poker was on the fourth floor near where Jinbe and Who’s-Who were fighting when Tama ordered the tamed Gifters to take down Kaidou’s forces, and Poker began attacking his former comrades around him so Jinbe could focus on Who’s-Who.
