If you wanted to fight us, bring a warship.
~ Benn Beckman

Benn Beckman is a male character in the anime and manga series One Piece. He's the first mate in the Red Haired Pirates, one of the four emperors pirate crews, serving under "Red Haired" Shanks, and alongside Yasopp, Rockstar, and Lucky Roo, and several other members who are, as of yet, unnamed.  

In the Japanese version, he was voiced by formerly Kazuyuki Sogabe after he retirement, Kenichi Ono in One Piece: Grand Rand Battle! Rush! and currently Aruno Tahara. In an alternate English dub by Odex, he was voiced by Joseph Murray. In the English dub version of the One Piece anime by 4Kids Entertainment, he was voiced by Andrew Paull. And in the Funimation English dubbed version, he was voiced by Sean Hennigan.


Beckman is a tall man standing at least a foot taller than Shanks. His hair was jet black and pulled back in a pony tail 12 years ago in Luffy's hometown; in the current storyline, his hair has turned gray and is cut short. He is never seen without his rifle nearby or a cigarette in his mouth. He also now has a large X-shaped scar on his left temple.

His outfit has changed very little over the years since his first appearance; he now wears a black, v-neck shirt with three quarter sleeves (whereas he is previously seen wearing a short-sleeved shirt of a similar color and design) along with loose pants (originally of a dark green color, but presently gray) with numerous pockets on them, tucked inside his buckled boots. Like most of the other Red Hair Pirates, he wears a sash around his waist, to which he attaches his rifle in a pistol-like fashion. The only thing added to his attire is his spiral-patterned cloak.


Beckman appears to be a lot less fun-loving than the other members of the crew and a lot more relaxed, acting as the level-headed member. He, along with Lucky Roo and Yasopp, is one of Shanks's most trusted crew members as he is always seen when the Red Hair Pirates are featured, usually when something crucial happens.

At times, Beckman seems amazed at the actions of his captain, such as panicking when Luffy is taken or getting even more drunk when he has already drunk a lot before and when Mihawk brings the news of Luffy's first bounty. He is the first to speak out amongst the crew whenever they appear. He also seems to be the first to ask questions about the crew's situation, such as whether the World Government would try to stop them from seeing Whitebeard.

Abilities and Powers

According to Eiichiro Oda, Beckman has the highest IQ of all the characters introduced in the East Blue saga. Since he is a first mate to a Yonko, he presumably possesses a great deal of strength. During the Battle of Marineford, Admiral Kizaru chose not to fight him, even though he had just fought the First Commander of Whitebeard's crew and Whitebeard himself. It should be noted that Kizaru did, however, when Beckman came down to join the rest of the crew, continue his attack on Luffy.

Beckman also single-handedly defeated Higuma's crew of mountain bandits, telling Higuma to bring a warship as backup if he wanted to fight them.


Beckman carries a flintlock rifle with him, but he has yet to fire it, instead using it as a club on Higuma's men and as a threat against Kizaru.  


  • When Oda gave his name, Oda joked on how he is called "Shofukutei Nezumi" because he looks a little like a mouse. However according to Oda, that was Usopp lying.
  • Beckman's favorite food is kamaboko.
