Sound of falling in love
“Pirate Empress” Boa Hancock [ 10 ] is the captain of the Kuja Pirates and was the only female Warlord of the Sea prior to the organization ‘s disbandment. She is the current empress, known as the “Snake Princess”, of Amazon Lily [ 3 ] and rules over the Kuja kin with her two younger Gorgon sisters, Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold. [ 3 ] She was first mentioned by the Risky Brothers at the end of the Thriller Bark Arc when comparing her fabled beauty to the smasher of mermaids. [ 11 ] She is the main antagonist of the Amazon Lily Arc, before befriend and falling in love with Monkey D. Luffy in the like discharge. She becomes his ally during the rest of the Summit War Saga, a well as the Return to Sabaody Arc. She besides acts as an ally of Luffy during the 3D2Y limited, the Cidre Guild filler Arc, and the movie One Piece: Stampede .
Hancock is considered the most beautiful woman in the populace. She has a well proportion figure compared to her abnormal and huge sisters. She is very grandiloquent and slender with farseeing black hair that extends past her waist with locks of hair that frame her front toss off to her kuki and shows off her high brow, black brown ( dark blue sky in the pre-time jump then changed to black after the time-skip ) eyes with hanker, voluminous eyelashes and pale bark. She has a narrow shank and very big breasts. Her three measurements are ( according to Sanji and series godhead Eiichiro Oda in supplementary fabric ) : B111-W61-H91 ( B 43.7 ” – W 24.02 ” – H 35.83 ” ), making her breasts a J-cup in Japan. Prior to the timeskip, they appeared to be much larger than Robin or Nami ‘s breasts, but after the timeskip, this was no long the case. [ 4 ] Her attire changes frequently. When first introduced, she wore a disclosure red blouse that showed much of her chest of drawers and a free sarong that exposed her long, slender legs with the green symbol of the Kuja adorned on it, along with a flannel cape sporting epaulettes more normally found on the jackets of high-level Marines, and crimson high heel pumps. She then wore a qipao with a hooded clothe which she used it to cover Luffy until they arrived at Impel Down and then took it off during the conflict against Whitebeard. During the Summit War of Marineford, she wore a purple preen with Kuja designs on it and imperial high heel pumps. Upon her return to Amazon Lily, she reverted to her original outfit ( with the exception of her cape ). In all her outfits, she has worn a match of golden earrings that resemble snakes and high-heeled shoes ; her attire is besides adorned with the emblem of the Kuja, with an exception of when Hancock fell ill due to her Love Sickness, during which she wore a crimson blouse. After the timeskip, her attire looks the same as when she was first introduced, except it is colored blue ( although it remains crimson in the anime ). Her extraordinary beauty is noted by many throughout the populace : one of the Risky Brothers claims that her smasher is in second base station of the mermaids, [ 11 ] while others like Marguerite and Hannyabal title she is the most beautiful woman in the universe. She is besides about always seen with Salome, her large Snake Weapon, which is normally seen smiling despite wearing a skull. even though Hancock normally looks either calmly beautiful or cute ( in an attack to “ apologize ” for her actions ), she can look very daunting and anger with her eyes bulging insanely and her teeth bared, as seen when Smoker attacked Luffy at Marineford. Before Hancock fell in sleep together with Luffy and when she is not around Luffy, her eyes tend to look emotionless, but when she is around Luffy, her eyes show much more emotion, making her look like a girlfriend in love. Along with her sisters, on her back is the slave set of the Celestial Dragon, something that she was indeed captive on keeping secret and was willing to petrify anyone ( other than her sisters and Elder Nyon ) who saw it. In order to make certain it was never seen, she and her sisters concocted a lie that what was in truth on the sisters ‘ backs were pairs of Gorgon eyes which would petrify anyone who sets eyes on them. Hancock uses this “ curse ” as an apology for her and her sisters ‘ Devil Fruit abilities. As a young child, she looked quite similar to how she does now, but the entirely deviation is that merely her side-locks went past her shoulders and were worn in beads. During her safety valve from Mary Geoise, she wore rags and her hair was tied in pigtails. [ 12 ] In SBS bulk 63, Oda drew the Seven Warlords as children. Hancock is shown wearing a small lace top with alien twirl patterns leaving her mid-riff queer. Her only other slice of clothing is a small loin fabric around her hips. [ 13 ] In the 3D2Y special, she wears a purple dress with gold trim, and a great light purple trope of her Jolly Roger at the bottom. During the Cidre Guild Arc and One Piece: Stampede, she wears a black dress with one of the sleeves and a half thorax sphere in white and with images of her Jolly Roger on the part of the hedge, in addition to a purple girdle at the shank, and a total darkness cape with a pink department of the interior and with golden shoulder pads .
|— Hancock justifying her actions to Vice Admiral Momonga.|
Hancock is a very building complex woman. At first glance, she appears to be selfish, grandiloquent, spoiled, and used to having her own way. She can besides act arrogant and barbarous, normally justifying her less-than-admirable actions with her odd beauty, causing her to think that she can get away with anything because the world will forgive her ( and save for the handful able to resist she is largely successful in this border on, as elated suitors of both genders happily forgive her every transgression ). [ 15 ] She besides made it seem that she did not think much of the Kuja tribe either as she commented to Elder Nyon that she did not care if the island was destroyed or not, since everyone would forgive her anyhow because she is beautiful .
Because of her beauty and military capability, she is used to seeing men and women, young and old alike, fall instantaneously in love with her. As a result of this, people forgive her when she acts cunningly apologetic or reminds them of her beauty. however, when Luffy came along and displayed a complete immunity to her charms, she initially felt that she could not bear the being of person completely invulnerable to her powers, and would collapse dramatically whenever insulted. [ 16 ] This feel has eroded away, though, as she deeply loves Luffy in hurt of his immunity to her. tied after the two year timeskip, Hancock continues to be in love with Luffy american samoa much as before despite that the latter openly rejected a marry proposal from her. [ 17 ] flush though Luffy repeatedly turns down her marriage proposals, Hancock is not discouraged by this and with every rejection she apparently becomes more determined to marry him. It was revealed the reason for Hancock ‘s lies and position towards life was that because of her atrocious past, she did not want to ever show helplessness again to anyone. She harbored a great fear of getting close to anyone, other than her own sisters, and would even go as far to deceive all of the other Kuja. [ 18 ] This caused her foster mother, Elder Nyon, to fear that Hancock had sincerely turned arsenic cold as frost. It was n’t until Hancock confessed everything to Luffy that she finally showed emotion, breaking down in tears after reliving her painful memories .
Deep down, Hancock is a rather-sensitive and vulnerable woman who is afraid and concerned about how early people ( particularly the other Kuja ) might react to the truth of the black past that she and her sisters share. She is besides a lot more soft and feel for towards others when she opens up. That character of her was only first shown for the first time in respective years in movement of Monkey D. Luffy and she has not only befriended but more importantly fallen deeply in love with Luffy, even agreeing to venture to the land of her suffering, from her days of a slave, at his request for his buddy. [ 19 ] Hancock has besides shown to be very crafty and crafty when the site demands it. This was peculiarly apparent when she aided Monkey D. Luffy into discreetly breaking through Impel Down ‘s out defenses, american samoa well as manipulating the bang-up prison warden, Magellan, to her whims before relaying a secret message to Luffy ‘s brother Ace, whom Luffy was trying to rescue. She has besides proven to be a identical skilled liar who is excellent at fabricating stories, and her confidence leads her to never consider the consequences of her actions. An case of this is when she takes advantage of her smasher in Impel Down floor 6 to drive the prisoners mad, making them disrespect Magellan and causing adequate trouble to speak to Ace freely without anyone comment. Despite this, Hancock can be reasonably ignorant as she frequently mistakes many of Luffy ‘s actions as quixotic. All of her arrogance seems to vanish when Luffy is on her mind, though. Whenever he is in her presence, she is promptly to turn shy, barely able to meet him in the center and gleam over every action he takes. even when he is not nearby, merely thinking of him causes her to blush and truly smile in a way that the early Kuja have said is unusual of her. Despite the amour propre she shows to her enemies and the facade she puts on for her people, she does show genuine manage for people cheeseparing to her. This was seen when she flew into a fit of rage and kicked Smoker away from Luffy after he had tried to kill him. Ignoring the possible consequences of her actions, she openly and publicly declared Luffy to be her beloved, efficaciously choosing her love over her title ( and her people ‘s treaty ). During her craze, she showed none of her common steady arrogance. This is seen again, to a lesser extent, when she screams at Aokiji for stabbing Luffy with an Ice Saber. Her anger is enough to make even Jinbe to cower in fear, albeit slenderly and in a comedic manner. due to her suffer as a slave and how the first gear homo she always saw painfully burned her rear with her slave marker, Hancock is very discriminating and judgmental towards men. She refused to listen to Luffy ‘s story about how he was sent to her island or give him any clemency even after Marguerite pleaded on his behalf. When she gave him the option to leave the island or help unpetrify Marguerite and her friends, Hancock believed he would act selfish to save himself and was speechless when he showed his altruistic nature. After falling in love with Luffy, Hancock seems to have lessened her judgmental nature towards men as she allowed Law and his crew to dock at the edge of her island and chose to lift her nation ‘s law to some extent and permitted Jinbe to wander on the island without watch. Because of the horrors she endured from the World Nobles, Hancock became a identical bitter and cold woman, caring nothing for others ( except her sisters ) and normally maintains a tough and aloof demeanor. She maintain this attitude due to her belief she should be potent for her people and out of fear of being taking advantage of again. After falling in sleep together with Luffy, she ‘s become a distribute more sympathetic and kind. She now smiles more frequently and has started to treat her fellow Kuja ‘s with a lot more kindness and obedience and has even decided to do work with them such as helping them make food for Luffy quite than merely order them around as usual. While referring to herself, Hancock uses “ warawa ” ( ワラワ, “warawa” ? ) —an antiquated pronoun that signifies nobility—instead of the more coarse “ watashi ” ( 私, “watashi” ? ) .
In cattiness of her arrogant demeanor, Hancock has several running gags. The first is that when she looks down on people, she leans backwards so she faces the ceiling ( or the flip ) above her, obviously looking down on people so a lot she ‘s looking up. [ 20 ] Another is that she appears to dislike small animals, in which she angrily asks who left the animal in front of where she ‘s walking before kicking it away, no matter how cunning it is. A Kuja responsibly apologizes, while the offended animal snarl at her, and Hancock advises her to be more careful in the future. [ 15 ] [ 21 ] She besides tends to lose her anneal whenever person tries to keep her from spend time with Luffy, such as when she glared angrily at Jinbe for trying to eat some of the food she made for Luffy and when Rayleigh forbid her from seeing Luffy during his discipline, which prompted her to angrily pinch his nose. last, she often thinks about Luffy and mistakenly thinks that they are married or engaged and despite ( or possibly because of ) repeatedly being told that they are not, Hancock is immediately very purpose on becoming Luffy ’ second wife .
Boa Marigold and Boa Sandersonia
- Further information: Gorgon Sisters
Hancock is very close to her sisters because they went through a lot together as slaves. The three of them have a strong bond and support each other ‘s actions. such was the font that when she became Empress, she allowed her sisters to rule alongside her, and entrusts them with her authority when she leaves for Impel Down. initially, when Luffy requested for Hancock to travel to Impel Down, Marigold and Sandersonia vehemently disagreed with the theme. however, when Hancock accepted his request, they respected her wishes, equally well as her love for Luffy, and wished the best of fortune for them. Given the way children are born on their island, in that women who have traveled overseas return key fraught, it is stranger if the three share the like father, or are even blood related ascribable to their different appearances, but it is assumed they contribution the lapp mother .
Hancock takes the role as a spoil terror to Gloriosa, even though Gloriosa helped her and her sisters get back to Amazon Lily. Gloriosa tried to convince Hancock to accept the summons but she refused. Hancock likes to make sure that Gloriosa remembers that she is considered a traitor to the Kuja and told her to stop bossing her around since Hancock is the current Empress of Amazon Lily. She then threw Gloriosa out of the window, despite the fact that had Gloriosa not been at sea at the fourth dimension, she and her sisters would have nowhere to go, and Gloriosa treated them as though they were her own daughters. even still, the relationship between the two is akin to a adolescent daughter and a mother, despite their differences. Regardless, Hancock does have a degree of regard for Gloriosa as she went to her to help her understand the confusion of her sudden feelings, something Hancock thanked her for. In restitution, Gloriosa supports and is gallant of Hancock ‘s decisiveness in helping the object of her beloved, alternatively of allowing it to consume and kill her .
Salome is Hancock ‘s personal snake weapon. Salome is typically used as a throne for her to sit on and as a weapon for battle. No matter where Hancock is, Salome is adjacent to her. Hancock seems to be near to Salome as the snake was worried when Hancock was ill because of her love illness and assists Hancock in any of her battles .
Hancock has a building complex kinship with her Kuja subjects, protecting them from the World Government, but refusing to continue protecting them by working with the latter. She besides destroyed a clay statue of her, made by several little girls, plainly because it was made from crap, mud and mud, and petrified three Kuja warriors ( Marguerite, Sweet Pea and Aphelandra ) for allowing a valet ( Monkey D. Luffy ) to enter the island and defending his crime. however, there has been no Kuja who does not love and admire Hancock, and agrees with every decision she makes ( apart from Elder Nyon, to an extent ). even Marguerite showed no hard feelings towards Hancock after she was unpetrified. Hancock likewise actually cares what they would think of her if they knew she was once a slave, flush though she is now an empress, and fears she will bring shame onto the tribe if they were mindful of her past. So she ‘s endlessly lied to them to protect herself and her sisters. She even referred to them as her buddy, as opposed to her subjects. ever since Hancock fell in love with Luffy, she has started to treat the Kuja warriors very nicely. She sometimes goes angstrom far as offering to help them prepare food for Luffy ‘s convalescence .
Silvers Rayleigh became very good friends with Boa Hancock and her sisters. He is one of the two exceptions from Boa Hancock ‘s hate towards men for helping her and her sisters after they escaped from the World Nobles, the early one is Monkey D. Luffy ( Hancock ‘s love interest and the alone valet who actually punched a Celestial Dragon ). When Rayleigh told Hancock that no women are allowed during Luffy ‘s train, Hancock scolded him by pinching his nose, but he managed to calm her down because it was all for Luffy ‘s benefits .
Monkey D. Luffy
originally antagonistic towards him, Hancock saw Luffy as a homo who, being immune to her charms despite seeing her naked, could not be allowed to exist. She refused to believe his fib of being sent to the island by Bartholomew Kuma, and ordered his performance. She besides thought he was barely like all men in the earth, selfish and arrogant, but was proven amiss and was even moved by his acts of altruism ( soon afterwards he became her love interest ). Luffy is actually possibly the merely one ( beside Rayleigh and Shakky ) outside her family that she truly considers a friend. She quickly befriended him when he covered the back of her sister when he was fighting sol as cipher could see the Celestial Dragon ‘s slave commemorate on her, when given a choice, chose to save Marguerite, Sweet Pea, and Aphelandra preferably than benefit himself, and that he went arsenic far as to strike one of the World Nobles, and harbored no hate for Hancock for being a slave in the past. As such, due to Luffy ‘s fearlessness, selflessness and kind heart, Hancock has fallen in sexual love with Luffy, causing her to have “ Love Sickness “, which was the causal agent of death of closely all of the previous Empresses. however, Elder Nyon says that all of the former Empresses died because they tried to suppress their feelings by distancing themselves from their object of desire, whereas Hancock will survive by going with Luffy. due to her feelings, Hancock has a heavily time looking Luffy in the center and tends to blush in his presence ( much like a young girl with a squash ). She is besides prone to daydreams involving Luffy. She requested that Luffy call her Hancock, as opposed to her title, and closely fainted the first time he called her by her given list correctly, given the fact that he had said it wrong a few times before, calling her “ Hammock ”. Moments by and by, she actually did faint after believing that Luffy said “ I love you ” ( 愛してる。, aishiteru ? ) when he actually said “ Thank you ” ( ありがとう, arigatou ? ). She continues to tend to faint in rejoice whenever Luffy says her list veracious and obviously is keeping reckon of how many times he has said her name correctly. When Luffy hugged her during the Summit War of Marineford, she thought of it as a marriage proposal of marriage. Later though, Nyon told her that she was n’t married. As a result, Hancock is now set on the mind of marrying Luffy. even though Luffy says that he is not going to marry Hancock, she still loves him very much and is not deterred in the slender by this. During the Summit War of Marineford, Hancock states that all men, both Marine and plagiarist alike, are her enemies, Luffy standing as the alone exception. [ 22 ] tied after finding out the truth about Luffy ‘s heritage, she cast it away and did not care evening if he is the son of the devil. [ 23 ] She is besides highly protective of Luffy, going thus far as to attack Commodore Smoker for restraining Luffy, much to the shock of the Marines watching them. She evening openly declared Luffy as her beloved. [ 24 ] In fact, ever since Luffy ‘s arrival at Marineford, all Hancock could do was focus her attention on Luffy ‘s wellbeing, bursting out in anger whenever he was attacked and shivering in fear whenever she could not tell if he was all right. Upon reaching Luffy after the war and receiving information about his critical discipline from Trafalgar Law, Hancock expressed her desire to be the one to have taken all the suffer in Luffy ‘s place. She cares thus much for Luffy that she barely ate any food on her fall to Amazon Lily until she was certain that Luffy was all right, and evening then commanded that equally much food as possible be given to him so that he may recover .
While Luffy does not have the same romantic feelings towards Hancock that she feels towards him, he has shown that he authentically cares for and appreciates her. During his battle with Magellan, when the warden stated that he would have Luffy tell him how he managed to break into Impel Down, Luffy protected Hancock by declaring he would not tell Magellan even if it killed him. He later showed his gratitude by hugging her and remarking subsequently that she had saved him twice, both in helping him break into Impel Down and giving him the key to Ace ‘s Seastone handcuffs .
universe Government and Marines
even when she was one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea, Hancock considered the World Government to be her enemy and, much like Nico Robin, she has stated that she hates the World Government and those in their complete obedience. much of this comes from her past with the Celestial Dragons, who tortured her and her sisters from a young age, until they were rescued by Fisher Tiger. even though she became a Warlord to protect her people, she refuses to take orders from the World Government, despite claiming agreement with carrying them out, evidenced as when she lied about her agreement to wage war with Whitebeard just to get them off her back temporarily. In some cases, her clash with the World Government has reached dangerous levels, which even Elder Nyon criticizes. True enough, she has causal agent severe frictions with the government. She accepted to fight Whitebeard merely because this allowed Monkey D. Luffy to rescue the authoritative prisoner Portgas D. Ace ( even unknown to the World Government ), and due to her actions bringing Luffy to Impel Down, she is indirectly responsible for the aggregate break of respective prisoners anterior to the war. She defended Luffy in front of several Marines and Smoker while proclaiming Luffy as her beloved and destroy respective Pacifistas to assist in Luffy and Jinbe ‘s miss. She subsequently held of Marines to assist the Straw Hats escape to Fish-Man Island. Despite being allied with the Marines, she refuses to call them allies, as she did not think twice about attacking her alleged “ allies ” in the Marines. evening though she agreed to fight against Whitebeard, she has made it clear that the Marines are not her allies by attacking without any differentiation both pirates and Marines alike during the war. Her continuous support of Luffy during the war has put far strain on her condition as a Warlord. As for the Marines, Hancock considers Smoker a personal enemy after he pinned down and attempted to kill Luffy. Hancock swore to rip him to shreds and feed him to beasts. [ 24 ] She besides grew angry at Aokiji when he stabbed Luffy with an icicle blade. [ 25 ] With the Seven Warlords organization now abolished, she is an enemy with the politics once again as Captain Koby and his forces waste no time trying to arrest her. Hancock, on the early hand, is not afraid and prepared to show the Marines the might of the Kuja Tribe .
|— Hancock stating her reason for attacking the Marines.|
ascribable to her beastly experience with the beginning homo she ever saw, the one who painfully burned the Hoof of the Soaring Dragon onto her back, Hancock has a biting hatred towards all men ( the entirely exceptions being Luffy, her love interest, and Rayleigh, who helped her and her sisters after they escaped from bondage ), that caused her to promiscuously attack pirates and Marine soldiers alike during the war. [ 22 ] What she thinks of Ace is unknown, as he is Luffy ‘s brother ( though she was surprised to find out they were not akin, [ 26 ] ) but she did not show much antagonism towards him during their converge, and she stole the keystone to his shackles during the war. She made exceptions for the Heart Pirates for saving Luffy, and Jinbe received alike treatment, either due to his actions in protecting Luffy during the war resulting in him ending up as a chap patient of the Heart Pirates alongside Luffy, or the probable possibility her cathartic rescue by Fisher Tiger ingrained in her a better impression of Fish-Men than her awful beginning interaction with men. Of course, it may besides be due to the fact that Jinbe is a member and the current leader of Fisher Tiger ‘s gang, the Sun Pirates.
Hancock and her sisters were once enslaved by the World Nobles. For four years, she suffered greatly and wished for nothing but death everyday. Despite being freed by Fisher Tiger, Hancock still maintains a boastfully academic degree of trauma from them, shivering and crying from telling Luffy her tragic past. She was even left speechless after learning Luffy assaulted one, being amazed that there was person foolish and brave adequate to do thus. even still, Hancock ‘s behavior was sternly warped by the torture she endured until she met Luffy and puts up a bang-up deal of effort to ensure no matchless will know of her past .
Fisher Tiger freed Hancock and her sisters, along with many early slaves, during his rampage at Mary Geoise. Having met ( or at least seen ) him only once, she was shocked by his recklessness, and terrified of the ferociousness with which he fought. however, she has stated she owes him a debt which can never be repaid .
Straw Hat Pirates
It is obscure how Hancock feels towards the Straw Hat crew, as Luffy is the captain of the gang. She seems to care about them ( due to her love for Luffy ), as she willingly protected them from the Marines and helped them set cruise to Fish-Man Island. The Straw Hats seems to appreciate what she did for them, as Brook and Sanji have already fallen for the Pirate Empress ‘s beauty ( with Sanji turning to stone barely looking at her ). Usopp besides referred to her as the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. In the anime, when Luffy told Hancock about his crowd, she became fabulously covetous of Nami and Robin, thinking they were beloved rivals. She besides became determined not to lose against them .
Hancock has shown to be very distrust towards Jinbe when they inaugural met, [ 27 ] but because he helped save Luffy, she let him seek recourse on her island until he was amply healed. In fact, Hancock has grown to respect Jinbe for protecting Luffy and flush allowed him to explore her island to watch over a injure Luffy, making Jinbe the second gear homo to have ever been allowed in her nation, showing Hancock has come to trust Jinbe greatly. Jinbe has shown to have a fear of crossing her when he wanted to have some of Luffy ‘s food ( that she prepared for Luffy entirely ) and despite their precarious relationship, they are allies against the World Government. They besides share a connected past of slavery where Jinbe ‘s captain liberated a number of slaves with Hancock and her sisters among them .
Trafalgar D. Water Law
Because of Law ‘s willingness to help Luffy during his time of need, Hancock put a lot of her faith in him and thanked him for saving Luffy, making Law one of the few men she ‘s come to respect aside from Luffy, Rayleigh, and Jinbe. She provided Law and his crowd with food and shelter on her island under the terms they did not enter her city. Law besides has shown to be among the few men who have had no interest in her beauty. To ensure Luffy ‘s safety, she did not tell the Marines anything of their private meeting .
Abilities and Powers
Hancock is widely considered to be highly mighty by supporter and enemy alike. Ruling beside her sisters, Hancock has might over Amazon Lily and the rest of the Kuja tribe. As the empress and master of the kin, Hancock is the strongest Kuja warrior. The Kuja believe that “ military capability is beauty ”, and since all members of the tribe submit that she is the most beautiful in the world, they believe she is vastly brawny, and the strongest among the entire tribe. It is to be noted that only the strongest Kuja warriors are allowed in the state ‘s pirate crowd, Hancock and her sisters were strong adequate to be there when they were small children, although it is possible they were equitable apprentices like Shanks and Buggy. Her military capability is so big that it has flush been acknowledged by the Fleet Admiral of the time, Sengoku of the Marines. [ 21 ] Gloriosa believed that there was little gamble for Boa Hancock to die in the Marineford War because of her bang-up forte. even former Admiral Kuzan commented on her skills, stating she is not to be underestimated. Further testament to her strength is how she was one of the three Warlords who managed to leave the war without sustaining any injuries. The fact that she can earn a 80,000,000 amplitude after her first crusade as a plagiarist far supports her capabilities .
This is shown when she had managed to take down several Pacifistas single handedly without much feat, where it took the wholly Straw Hat crew ( before their biennial aim ) to take down just one, which left them greatly worn out .
Noted as the the strongest warrior of the ill-famed Kuja Tribe, Hancock has immense forcible military capability. She could perform inordinately powerful kicks of super-human strength that can well break stone ( in the form of petrify opponents ) equally well as take down numerous mighty Marine officers and New World pirates with incredible ease, and knock away Smoker, an highly strong and herculean Marine, with a single Haki enhanced kick. [ 24 ] Her persuasiveness is supplemented with frightful accelerate and agility, able to land an extremely fast barrage of herculean kicks on numerous Marines and New World pirates at once before they could respond. In Stampede, Hancock had enough forcible world power to deal a blow to the awaken form of Douglas Bullet, that while left him differently unharmed, it was strong enough to be felt. She has enormous skills in hand-to-hand combat, supplemented with her Devil Fruit abilities. She could easily take down numerous herculean and skilled Marine officers vitamin a well as herculean pirates from the New World. exchangeable to Sanji ‘s contend style, Hancock ‘s crusade style seems to personally emphasis on mighty and versatile kicks, whether from kicking in-the-way cute animals or her enemies. Her kicks supplemented with her Devil Fruit powers allow Hancock to destroy several Pacifistas at once single-handed.
deception, Trickery, and Charisma
Hancock is highly skilled in the arts of subterfuge and deception, managing to disguise Luffy inside her coat without eliciting much suspicion across an entire gravy boat voyage and inside Impel Down, angstrom well as being the sister to propose spreading the fib of the “ Gorgon excommunicate ” to prevent her subordinates from discovering the humiliating brand of enslavement on their backs over a period of decades. Hancock is besides highly intelligent, crafty, and crafty when the situation demands it, being able to buy Luffy time, using her charms, after overhearing Magellan ‘s design to halt his infiltration and managed to manipulate events on Level Six of Impel Down by creating a whirl between the residing prisoners and a “ protective ” magellan to speak to Portgas D. Ace in individual and not attract any care, a well as stealing the winder to Ace ‘s handcuffs for Luffy prior to his arrival, knowing it would be useful. Hancock is besides a overcome seductress, she could use her beauty and capture to get whatever she wants. With merely Luffy as an exception, both men and women have been shown to be susceptible to her charms which consequently allows her to manipulate people as she desires. Though it might be a junior-grade effect of her Devil Fruit ability, Hancock is fabulously charismatic, to the steer where her claims that she ‘s able to get away with anything because she is beautiful has so far been shown to be truthful, with her antagonistic actions during the Marineford war apparently unnoticed despite her openly attack Marines and declaring her love for Luffy. She even convinced Marine officers to give her all their provisions, which they were prepared to happily do. In Impel Down, she used her charms to convince Magellan to take her down to Level 6 in order to buy Luffy more time, and at Level 6, she used her charms once more to cause a commotion in order to pass a message to Ace .
prior to the timeskip, Hancock was bad at fudge, but became skilled in cooking kernel which is Luffy ‘s darling dish over the course of two years. [ 28 ]
Hancock is besides adept in long-range fight and is capable of using her Devil Fruit powers to strike her enemies from a long distance. She has shown bang-up accuracy in using Pistol Kiss in which she accurately shot Luffy who jumped from the Kuja Palace from a very far distance. With the Slave Arrow, she shot down multiple New World Pirates at once, petrifying them in the work .

During her time as a slave, Hancock and her sisters were force out fed Devil Fruits by their celestial Dragon owners as a shape of sick entertainment. Hancock ate the Mero Mero no Mi, a Paramecia -type Devil Fruit that allows her lapidify people into pit statues, so long as they feel attraction for her. She can turn people to stone by hitting them with any of a variety of cordate long-range attacks, a well as by striking them physically. She can besides return her victims to normal if she chooses. A would be victim is immune to her power if they block out their “ dirty thoughts ”, such as by feeling strong fear or pain, or if they simply aren ’ thymine attracted to her, such as a blind man not knowing how beautiful she is.

It has the ability to track and sense things on the ocean floor, which was shown when it was able to sense Whitebeard ‘s earthquake before it arrived and when it helped Hancock follow Trafalgar Law ‘s submarine .
