Hongo is the doctor and an officer of the Red Hair Pirates.


Hongo is a lean man with dirty blonde hair, which is tied up into a small ponytail. He has a stitched scar on the left side of his forehead. His outfit consists of an open coat showing his torso.

In his first appearance in Luffy's childhood, Hongo looked pretty similar to his current self, but seemingly lacked a few teeth despite having a full set of them in the present.


Like many of his fellow Red Hair crew members, Hongo enjoys partying, drinking, and the pirate life. However, at the Summit War of Marineford, he looked considerably more serious.

Abilities and Powers

Hongo is an officer of the Red Hair Pirates, giving him authority over lower-ranking members of the crew. Hongo is a powerful individual himself, considering how Marine commodore Brannew described the whole crew as having a high average of bounties.

As a doctor, Hongo has great knowledge of medical practices. He is also very familiar with weapons and can dismantle them near instantaneously.


Hongo appears to wield an as of yet unidentified polearm as his weapon. In the anime, this appears to be a quarterstaff.

He was also shown wielding a saber in the past.



Hongo was already part of the Red Hair Pirates 12 years ago. He could be seen partying with his crew and talking to Luffy about the joys of pirate life.

A week after the raid on Onigashima, the Red Hair Pirates were sailing outside Wano. Some of the crew were excitedly discussing the prospect of seeing Luffy again. When Shanks refused and instead decided to look after his territories, Hongo was the one to remind his captain about Bartolomeo, who had been causing trouble on some of their islands.
