Nico Robin

Nico Robin, also known by her epithet "Devil Child" and the "Light of the Revolution", is the archaeologist of the Straw Hat Pirates. She is the seventh member of the crew and the sixth to join, doing so at the end of the Arabasta Arc. She temporarily left the crew during the Water 7 Arc, but rejoined during the Enies Lobby Arc.

Robin ate the Hana Hana no Mi at a young age, giving her the power to reproduce her body parts (or her entire body) on any surface at will. As the sole survivor of the destroyed West Blue island Ohara, she is currently one of only two people in the world known to have the ability to read and decipher Poneglyphs, a skill which is considered forbidden and threatening to the World Government.

She acted as the vice president of Baroque Works as "Miss All Sunday", serving and partnering herself directly with the organization's president; the ex-Warlord: Crocodile, who operated under the codename "Mr. 0". She was a secondary antagonist of the Arabasta Saga, before joining the Straw Hats. Her dream is to find the Rio Poneglyph which tells the true history of the world, specifically the Void Century.

She gain a bounty of 79,000,000 at the age of 8 due to her ability to read poneglyphs after the the destruction of Ohara, it later increased to 80,000,000 after the Straw Hat invade Enies Lobby to rescue her and escape and currently has a bounty of 130,000,000.


Nico Robin is a tall, slender young woman with shoulder-length black hair and eyes that have dark, wide pupils (her eyes are depicted to be brown in manga as well as the tenth and twelfth movies; while in the anime, her eyes are depicted to be blue). She also has a long, thin and defined nose. In the anime, Robin's skin tone has a slightly darker tan unlike in manga colored artworks where it is lighter. Robin also resembles her mother greatly, with the exception of her hair color and style as well as having slightly darker skin tone than her. Robin's limbs are very long, especially her legs, contributing greatly to both her fighting capabilities (given the nature of her powers) and overall height.

Before the Timeskip

She has no trademark looks like the others, though her all-purple cowgirl look from when she was first introduced is often associated as her trademark look. Like Nami, Robin seems to be fond of revealing outfits as she is frequently wearing clothing that are either dark in color (often black or purple) or consists of leather (sometimes both). She is also fond of high heels and they do not seem to affect the way she walks or her speed.

After the Timeskip

From the Return to Sabaody Arc to near the end of the Fish-Man Island Arc, Robin's black hair (also lightened in color) has grown longer, which reaches to her lower back and it is pulled back so it reveals more of her forehead and ears. After the timeskip, her outfit now is a long salmon sarong skirt with a partially-zipped short sleeved navy blue (sometimes purple in manga and some other media) leather vest with a V-neck line similar to Boa Hancock's and an image of her Devil Fruit or of an actual Chrysanthemum morifolium is printed on the left breast near the shoulder that exposed her stomach, pink high heeled pumps, and a pink backpack. She wears orange sunglasses (black in the manga) which she hangs on her forehead and is seen wearing them during the battle with the New Fish-Man Pirates in the Gyoncorde Plaza.
