Boa Hancock, also commonly referred to as the Pirate Empress or the "Snake Princess" of Amazon Lily, is a major character in the One Piece franchise. She rules over the Kuja tribe with her two younger sisters, Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold, and is the captain of the Kuja Pirates. She is indisputably considered by many to be the most beautiful woman in the world. She is introduced in the series as a member of the Seven Warlords of the Sea before her dismissal.

Initially debuted as the main antagonist of the Amazon Lily Arc, she gradually fell in love with the series' main protagonist, Monkey D. Luffy. She eventually pledged both her love and loyalty to him, after she understood the story behind how he punched a Celestial Dragon and heard his declaration that he only despises the World Nobles, and not her who had to suffer through their egregious actions, leading to her becoming one of his most stalwart allies and closest friends. She was first mentioned by the Risky Brothers at the end of the Thriller Bark Arc when comparing her legendary beauty to the beauty of mermaids.

Following the abolishment of the Seven Warlords due to the sins of Crocodile and Donquixote Doflamingo, Hancock was once again deemed as a criminal, a fugitive and threat to the World Government as well not only had her bounty reinstated, but increased it tremendously too. She has a bounty of 1,659,000,000 berries, having been raised from 80,000,000 berries. This makes her one of the most wanted and dangerous female pirates (besides Big Mom and Nico Robin), as well having the 13th highest overall known bounty of any pirate and having the second highest bounty of female pirates (after Big Mom).

She is voiced by Kotono Mitsuishi in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Lydia Mackay in the English version of the anime.

Overview[]

19 years ago, at age 12, she and her sisters were sold and marked as slaves of the World Nobles which resulted in their hatred towards men and the World Government. They were subjected to the most horrendous actions thinkable by the World Nobles as well as forced fed devil fruits for entertainment by their so-called "masters" for 4 years. It was until a Fishman named Fisher Tiger whom came to the Marie Joa to free his fellow Fishmen who suffered as slaves that they were eventually freed as well, despite his personal hatred toward humans. After escaping from the World Nobles, she and her sisters met Silvers Rayleigh and Shakuyaku who contacted Gloriosa to send them back home. However, the marks on their backs could not be faded which led her to fabricate a lie to protect the dignities of her sisters.

At age 18, Hancock became the unequivocal Empress of Amazon Lily while her sisters became her seconds-in-command. She earned a bounty worth 80,000,000 berries after just one excursion, and was immediately invited to become a member of the Shichibukai. She eventually accepted the deal to not only defend her homeland and her fellow Kuja from the World Government, but to also allow her and her sisters to keep their secret clandestine as well.

After Luffy was sent flying to Amazon Lily by Bartholomew Kuma, she and the Kuja mistakenly thought he invaded their homeland and captured him for execution. He also walked in when she was bathing and it led to her being perplexed as to why he was immune to her Devil Fruit powers when she used it against him. In the interim, It was revealed that Hancock refused to accept the summon by the World Government to combat the Whitebeard Pirates. She made her decision clear by forcing Vice-admiral Momonga on his knees and petrifying his men into stone.

During Luffy's fight, Boa was surprised when Luffy covered up the mark on Sandersonia's back after he recognised the significance of it to them. To test Luffy's character, she asked for his choice to either save his petrified amazon friends or to save himself. To her astonishment, Luffy instantly asked for her to save his friends without any hints of self-preservation. Hancock then cancelled his execution to have a conversation with him after also freeing his friends.

After learning that Luffy caused an International incident at Sabaody Archipelago by punching a World Noble, she was impressed and in her words, that such a 'wonderful idiot' still exists in the world. She also recognized his level of dedication to his beliefs and friends without regarding his own personal safety similar to Fisher Tiger. She deemed Luffy to be trustworthy after his actions against the World Nobles and experiencing his personality first-hand. Hancock went on to promise that she will tell him everything he needs to know including the meaning behind Hatchan's mark on his forehead. She revealed her and her sisters' horrific pasts as former slaves of the World Nobles to the young Straw Hat captain and future Emperor. From then on, Luffy shown his sympathies for Hancock and her sisters when he finally understood how they ended up being coldhearted misandrists after being tortured, abused, mistreated and forced fed with devil fruits horribly by their heinous captors. Hancock asks Luffy if he hates her for being a slave like so many other people do, the Straw Hat captain replied that he doesn't hate her, but instead, he now loathes the Celestial Dragons for what they did.

After Luffy stated that he vehemently despise the World Nobles for their selfishness and horrible actions, Hancock felt relieved from her dark past and not only pardoned his previous actions, she also befriended and fell in love with him, which caused her to suffer from "Love Sickness", a real disease that previous empresses of Amazon Lily have caught, which eventually caused their deaths due to them rejecting their loves for their respective man. Luffy decided to keep her and her sisters' secret between them by never telling any of the Kujas (including Marguerite) that they were once slaves. She displayed the highest form of trust by displaying the logo that she was a product of the world nobles on her back. However, she was further surprised when Luffy nonchalantly disregarded it, and had no ill-will or prejudice against her. Out of all of the men she met, Luffy was undoubtedly someone she has never come across before.

Hancock made an unprecedented exception in their tradition and allowed Luffy to stay in Amazon Lily as a guest. Hancock also allowed Luffy to eat at their banquet, creating the first chance for many Kujas to interact with a man as they are enjoying to touch and stretch Luffy's rubbery skin. Initially he wanted to return to Sabaody to reunite with his crew but his plan changed after learning that his brother, Ace, was going to be executed within 6 days. Luffy decides to go rescue Ace alone as reuniting with them would take more than a week, which will be past his execution date. Hancock offers her assistance to help Luffy, which he gladly accepts.

After Luffy learned that his brother Ace is going to be executed during the war against Whitebeard, Hancock easily accepted his seemingly selfish and dangerous request to help save him, despite putting herself at mortal danger. This shows the extent of her first love, as they concocted a plan to help sneak him into the most dangerous prison Impel Down before Ace was escorted to Marineford. She also went through a myriad of embarrassing predicaments due to Luffy's antiques but never once did she have any disdain against him. She filtered out the disgusting comments made by the prisoners and told Ace that Luffy was attempting to save him. Before further chaos could erupt, she was escorted to Marineford as per the deal.

As the war of the strongest began, Hancock indiscriminately started attacking both the Marines and the Whitebeard Pirates after some pirates started targeting her. She then made it clear that she doesn't considers the Navy as her allies, but rather viewed all men as her enemies, except for just one. As Luffy and the others arrived at Marineford after breaking out of Impel Down, she felt relieved to see Luffy safe and started making her intention to aid him abundantly clear to those around him. As Sengoku revealed Luffy's father is none other than the Revolutionary Dragon, Hancock was unsurprised and remained undaunted in her statement that even if he was the son of Dragon the "devil", she would nevertheless love him unconditionally.

Hancock engaged with multiple enemies in the war including the likes of Smoker and multiple Pacifitas on Luffy's behalf. When Luffy was stabbed by Admiral Aokiji, she immediately ran to help although her assistance was unneeded as Marco knocked him away. Hancock also surprised Luffy when she reveals that she possessed the keys to Ace's cuffs. Luffy immediately ran and gave her a big hug, thanking her profusely and promising he would never forget what she done for him. His words and actions cause her to briefly collapse and fantasise about their future marriage before continuing on with the war. Hancock also surprised the Marine when she suddenly declared herself to be the granddaughter-in-law of the Hero of the Marines Garp before explaining further that it would be a by-product of her marriage to Luffy.

After Ace was murdered by Akainu in cold blood, Hancock continues to tirelessly defend Luffy while Jinbei carries him to safety. She was anxious for Luffy who was utterly destroyed and demolished by his brother's death, wishing she could had taken his place.

She then sought to escape Marineford with a Marine's battleship, by petrifying the Marine soldiers under the disguise of capturing Luffy. She eventually met up with Trafalgar Law and the Heart Pirates who were tending to Luffy's condition. She also made acquaintance with the an army commander of the Revolutionary Army, Emporio Ivankov and his fellow Newkamas who took the ship Hancock stole as they made their way back to her island separately. Hancock orders the Kuja Pirates to shelter the Heart Pirates for Luffy's safety from the World Government and Marines. However, this was rejected by the previous empress who declared it to be unprecedented for men to enter their sacrilegious island and that only Luffy could enter.

After a compromise was reached, Hancock was utterly devastated and refused to eat until Luffy had recovered as she secluded herself in her room. She was overjoyed when Luffy woke up and ordered her people to make a big feast for him, with her also helping. When Rayleigh offered to train Luffy, she allowed them to use one of their islands and also offered giving Luffy daily feasts to eat after he finishes a day's training. Luffy was ecstatic but Rayleigh rejected the proposal so as to not spoil Luffy. This causes the Pirate Empress to snap at the Dark King though they eventually compromised as it was for the good of Luffy.

After 2 years, it was revealed that Hancock offered Luffy with multiple marriage proposals however at the moment, he declined them. Although, he does clearly state that he would like to see her again in the new world. As the Straw Hat Pirates prepares to go to Fishman Island, Hancock and the Kuja Pirates prevented the Marines from getting in their way. After the Dressrosa Incident, Hancock hanged a picture of Luffy's new bounty photo in front of her palace much to the annoyance of Gloriosa.

During the Levely, Hancock and her fellows Warlords lost all their privileges and became wanted criminals and enemies to the World Government once more. The Marines led by Coby and another Vice-admiral Yamakaji were seen on a ship trying to capture her. Boa Hancock was neither impressed nor afraid as she reassured her people that she became a Shichibukai for a reason. She then commands them to show the Marines the might of the Kujas and to display no mercy. Most if not every speculators believes that Coby is no match for Hancock which turned out to be true.

When Koby offered Hancock a peace solution which she surrender herself and come with the Marines just so the World Government will spare her people, Hancock however, angrily refused Koby's offer (which is the worst peace solution he undertook) and declaring she will never become a prisoner to the World Government again. The Marines were unsurprisingly no match for Hancock because they are still too weak against her.

Hancock easily defeated Coby's superior namely Vice-Admiral Yamakaji and most of the fleets of marines sent after her (the exception being the weak and helpless Koby who was also at her mercy before Blackbeard saved him). At the same time, her island was also invaded by Blackbeard and his crew (who came to kill Hancock and steal her Mero Mero no Mi). She easily defeated Vasco Shot and Catarina Devon (former prisoners of Impel Down level 6 and now Blackbeard's top executives) but was apprehended by Blackbeard. It was only until Silvers Rayleigh and Shakuyaku whom came to Hancock's rescue that they were able to drive off both the Marines and the Blackbeard Pirates. Since her home nation is no longer safe anymore due to the Marines, who would invade her island again persistently to capture her, she felt compelled to leave so her sisters and subjects would remain safe.

In addition, the World Government deployed two Seraphims to capture Hancock, alongside their fleet of battleships. Their secret weapon potent enough to replace the Warlords were two Warlords Pacifistas augmented with Lunarian characteristics under orders to capture her. One of which looks like Hancock and the other reminiscent of Hawk-Eyes, the World Strongest Swordsman when they were children. Both of them were said to be without a scratch despite fighting Blackbeard and his crew head on in a one-on-one.

For the first time, the outside world invaded Amazon Lily and was able to reach near the epicentre of the island. She easily defeated most of the marines including Vice-Admiral Yamakaji, as well as two members of the Ten Titanic Captains of the Blackbeard Pirates, Vasco Shot and Catarina Devon. They were also infamous former Level 6 prisoners of Impel Down. She was caught off-guard by Blackbeard when she was about to finish off the injured Captain Coby and was hoisted from her neck. The Emperor praised the Pirate Empress for being true to her title and commented that she was too powerful for him to allow her to fall into the marines' hands.

Blackbeard confessed that if he didn’t maintain his grip, she would easily turn them all to stone himself included, as he proclaimed that no man in the world is immune to her powers. Blackbeard was fine with killing her even if it meant losing two valuable members of his crew, one of which is wielding an incredibly rare Mythical Zoan Nine-Tail fox fruit. He left empty-handed soon after due to Silvers Rayleigh's arrival, fearing that he isn’t powerful enough to stand up to the combined strength of the Dark King and Pirate Empress. Although the Marines were driven off momentarily, the Blackbeard Pirates had returned to Hachinosu, with Koby as their prisoner and went out to seek out the Road Poneglyph copies, Hancock felt that she could not stay in Amazon Lily any longer and was forced to relocate for the Kujas' safety. She then vows that she will find Luffy once again and reunite with him, believing that situation to be the most ideal for her own personal safety since Luffy is one of the Four Emperors now that both Big Mom and Kaido are gone.

After the battle, Hancock decided to leave her home, Amazon Lily under the care of Rayleigh and Shakky and relocate herself for her sisters and her subject's safety. She intends to search for Luffy in the New World and reunite with him due to the combined factors of protecting her kin, saving herself from any troubles of dealing with the marines regularly, and most importantly, satisfying her desire of seeing Luffy again just so he can protect her from the Government as well she intend to marry the new Emperor.

After her disqualification as a Warlord due to both Crocodile and Doflamingo, her current bounty is 1,659,000,000 berries, a substantial increase from her first bounty which was 80,000,000. Despite not being an immediate threat to the world government compared to the crews of the Four Emperors. her bounty is higher than most first commanders of a Yonko crew as well as initially being higher than her love interest Luffy's bounty after the events of whole cake island, but now she is lower than Luffy's bounty by almost twice after the raid on Onigashima. It is to be noted that this number is solely due to her own prestige and is unlike the Cross Guild who had three Warlords' pedigree and crews helping to supplement each other's bounty. Her strength, pedigree, and leadership capabilities contributed to this high number despite her being incredibly passive and never outright attacked or disrupted any World Government's operations, but the Government don't really care and still considered Hancock to be an extremely dangerous threat.

History[]

Horrific Past[]

At age 7, Hancock was one of the many seen twenty-four years before the main story commenting on Gold Roger's death (or more specifically on the Great Age of Pirates), and emphasising the need for them to grow stronger.

When Hancock was twelve years old, she and her sisters were included into the Kuja pirate crew and were sailing on their ship, when suddenly, they were captured by slavers and sold to the Tenryubito. During her time as a slave, Hancock was forced fed the Paramecia fruit Mero Mero no Mi as a form of entertainment by her captors. The three suffered the greatest horrors imaginable, until four years later, a man by the name of Fisher Tiger appeared, and while his goal was simply the liberation of the Fishman slaves, he freed as many as he could without discrimination.

At age 16, they were freed 15 years ago prior to the story with nowhere left to go. The sisters were eventually rescued by elder Nyon, Silvers Rayleigh and Shakuyaku, and brought home, but the Hoof of the Celestial Dragon, the symbol of the Tenryubito was burned deep into their flesh. Hancock chose to hide the mark and her Devil Fruit powers, and disseminated to the fellow Kuja that it was punishment for slaying a gorgon, with her, Marigold and Sandersonia collectively gaining the nickname: the Gorgon sisters, for if the truth is revealed, the three sisters would have nowhere to go.

Unfortunately, despite being freed, the experiences and trauma that Hancock went through corrupted her innocence, and she would later grow up to distrust everyone (with the exception of her sisters), men especially. She also especially hate the World Government, in particular the Tenryubito. Over the years, despite Elder Nyon's love, mercy and attempts to open her up, Hancock became extremely cold, burying any warm feelings of kindness and sensitivity deep within her. Although she would later become the Empress of the Kuja, she portrays herself as being selfish, and uncaring towards her people. However, deep down, she cares immensely for her people and would sacrifice much for them which they themselves knew full well. Her heart was eventually thawed by Luffy as she started showing public affection for her people more openly.

When Hancock was eighteen, she became the Empress of the Kuja and quickly gained a notorious reputation despite her young age, catching the attention of the Marines and even the World Government, who were frightened of her potential, as she had earned a large bounty after only one campaign. Hancock later accepted to join the Shichibukai in order to protect her fellow Kuja, by forming a treaty to protect their homeland from the government, preventing them from entering and having her bounty frozen.

Amazon Lily Arc[]

Hancock shown when bathing. When Luffy accidentally fall into her bathing room and saw her slave mark, she tries to petrify him but didn't work due to his lack of lust for women. She hit him with her "Pistol Kiss" though injured him but still not petrify him. She was called by the Marines to accept the summon against the Whitebeard Pirates. However, she petrify them (except Vice Admiral Momonga) instead. Gloriosa tries to force Hancock accept the summon, only for the Snake Princess to throw the former Empress out of the window.

When the Kujas finally captured Luffy, Hancock ordered his execution. She then petrified Marguerite, Sweet Pea and Aphelandra to continue her attempt to execute Luffy only for the Straw Hat Pirates' captain punched the executioner, Bacura. Hancock then ordered her sisters to execute Luffy but despite their efforts, Luffy proven to be too strong for them. When Luffy covered Sandersonia's back from her slave getting exposed, Hancock cancelled Luffy's execution and offer two things, his friends or use her ship to leave Amazon Lily. When seeing Luffy bowing to her, she decided to bring him to her castle for conversation. She shown her mark but he doesn't know it means. Hancock and her sisters shown shocked hearing the Sabaody incident when Luffy actually punched a Celestial Dragon and somehow escaped from their wraths. Hancock shown her true colour that she cannot believed a "wonderful idiot" still existed in this world when Luffy dared to assault the World Nobles and risked his own life similar to Fisher Tiger. Seeing Luffy is too trustworthy for his actions against the Celestial Dragons, Hancock will explain everything that he needs to know as the meaning of his friend, Hachi's mark. She and her sisters revealed their identity as the former slaves of the World Nobles, much of Luffy's shock. She tells Luffy of her horrible past and all the pain she and her sisters endured at the hands of their heinous "masters" as well force to eat Devil Fruit for their twisted entertainment until they were freed by Fisher Tiger. After hearing everything, the sympathized Luffy finally understand Hancock's reasons why she is being like this as well she declared to Luffy she will make any sacrifices to keep her secrets and will never let herself to be controlled again. Hancock asked Luffy if he is going to hate her for being a slave like many people does, the captain of Straw Hats declared he would never hate her but only despised the Celestial Dragons for what they have done to his friends (Hachi and Camie). Hearing his determination and kindness, Hancock declared to Luffy she likes him as well letting him to use her ship to get him back to Sabaody. Hancock made an exception for Luffy when allowing him to eat at the banquet as a guest. While she is holding a cup of alcohol, Hancock starting to developed her love for Luffy and collapsed due to "Love Sickness". When Luffy hears his brother, Ace is going to be executed, Luffy declared to go on a mission to rescue Ace alone with the help from Hancock. Hancock accepted her love for Luffy and decided to help him to rescue Ace as well accepting the summon to fight Whitebeard.

Impel Down Arc[]

While reaching Impel Down, Hancock left Luffy off to wish him luck but when holding hands and finally hearing that Luffy said her name right, causing her love for Luffy to increase. When reaching to Ace, she informed him that his brother is coming for him before heading to Marineford to participate against Whitebeard.

Marineford Arc[]

Hancock shown with the other 4 Warlords. She discriminately attacked both the pirates and Marines (her falsely allies). She declared that all men are alike except for one (Luffy). When seeing Luffy finally arrived to help Whitebeard of saving Ace, Hancock shown relief of Luffy's safety and focus to helping him. When Sengoku revealed Luffy's identity as the son of the Revolutionary Army's supreme leader, Dragon, Hancock doesn't get bothered of Luffy is the son of the "devil" himself. When Smoker pins Luffy down, Hancock saves Luffy and kicked Smoker as well giving Luffy the key to Ace's Seastone cuffs. She was hugged by Luffy causing her to increasing her love for Luffy as she determined she wants to marry Luffy. When the Pacifista attempted to fire Luffy, Hancock protected him but also destroyed one of the Pacifistas for ruining her moment of thinking of Luffy. When the Marines attempted to fire at Luffy while confronted by his grandpa, Monkey D. Garp, Hancock intercepted the Marines and declared she will become Luffy's wife when calling Garp as "Grandfather". When Ace died at the hands of Sakazuki, Hancock is defending Jinbe while he is carrying the emotionally damaged Luffy out of Marines as well continue to destroy Pacifistas. Hancock stole a Marine Battleship when she charmed the Marines to follow Luffy and later petrified them when she has no longer any use of them.

Post-War Arc[]

When reaching the Heart Pirates, Hancock asked Trafalgar Law of Luffy's condition only for the "Surgeon of Death" to reply that he did everything he could, not knowing if he is going to wake up. Hearing Ivankov speech of Luffy, Hancock shed her tears when she loves Luffy. She used the Heart Pirates' Den Den Mushi to call the Kuja Pirates to shelter Luffy from the World Government after escaping from Marineford. She was shown worried of Luffy's conditions but when hearing Luffy woken up from his coma, Hancock felt relief and decided to bring food for Luffy. She soon reunion with Silvers Rayleigh (who sent her and her sisters home after escaping the Celestial Dragons). After Luffy, Jinbe and Rayleigh invade Marineford to ring the Ox Bell 16 times, Hancock had collapsed from too much heart fluttering. When Jinbe left to return to his home, Fishman Island, Hancock and the Kujas brought Luffy and Rayleigh to Rusukaina. She promise she will bring Luffy all the food he needs. But when Rayleigh said no women are allowed during Luffy's Haki training, Hancock pinched the "Dark King" at his nose until realized it was all for Luffy's sake.

Return to Sabaody Arc[]

After Luffy trained for Haki, Hancock offered many marriage proposals for Luffy countlessly times only for him to rejected them since he is still have things in his journey. Hancock told Luffy to get a low profile and don't get compromise. But when Luff got exposed despite of her recommendation, Hancock helped Luffy and his crew to escape to Fishman Island. Soon after, Hancock returns to Amazon Lily.

Wano Country Arc[]

Following the Levely, Hancock lost her title as a Warlord and was soon invaded by the Marines (who are attempting to arrest her). Hancock and the Kujas wage war against the Marines. When Koby offers Hancock to surrender herself and come with the Marines just so the Marines will spare her people, Hancock however, angrily rejected it and declared she will never go back as a prisoner to the World Government again. However, Hancock and the Kujas were also attacked by the Blackbeard Pirates (who were attempting to kill Hancock and steal her Devil Fruit). Hancock easily defeated almost all the Marines and most of the Blackbeard Pirates (including Vasco Shot and Catarina Devon). When she was about to attack the weakened Koby, Blackbeard appeared and caught Hancock, nullifying her abilities. While Blackbeard was about to kill Hancock by choking her, Rayleigh soon arrived and drove off both Marines and Blackbeard out of Amazon Lily, saving Hancock's life.

Egghead Arc[]

After her life was saved by Rayleigh, Shakky recommended Hancock that she must leave Amazon Lily since Calm Belt is no longer safe for her anymore due to Vegapunk's latest inventions the Seraphims (one of them who looks like Hancock and the other look like Mihawk). While realizing she is not safe on Amazon Lily due to Marines' nuisances, Hancock declared she is leaving Amazon Lily (as Shakky advised) under the protection of both Shakky and Rayleigh in Hancock's absence as well Hancock is going back for her reunion with Luffy just so he can protect her from the World Government.

Appearance[]

Compared to the abnormal and huge appearance of her sisters, Hancock has a well proportioned figure. She is a very tall, slender woman with long black hair past her waist with locks of hair that frame her face down to her chin, large breasts, a high forehead, and light brown (dark blue in the anime) eyes that have long, voluminous lashes.

Her 3 measurements are (according to Sanji and series creator Oda in supplemental material): B111-W61-H91 (B 43.7" - W 24.02" - H 35.83"), making her breasts a J-cup in Japan, and bigger than Nami's or Robin's breast.

Her attire changes frequently and displays her incredible fashion sense. When first introduced, she wore a revealing red blouse that showed much of her chest and a loose sarong that exposed her long, slender legs with the green symbol of the Kuja adorned on it, along with a white cape sporting epaulettes more commonly found on the jackets of high-ranking Marines, and red high heel pumps. She then wore a qipao with a hooded cloak which she used it to cover Luffy until they arrived at Impel Down and then took it off during the battle against Whitebeard. During the Whitebeard War, she wore a purple dress with Kuja designs on it and purple 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 pair of golden earrings that resemble snakes and high-heeled shoes; her attire is also 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 red blouse. After the time-skip, her attire looks the same as when she was first introduced, except it is colored blue.

Her beauty is noted by many throughout the world: to one of the Risky Brothers, her beauty is second only to that of the mermaids, while others like Marguerite and Vice-Warden Hannyabal proclaims that she is the most beautiful woman period in the world. She is also almost always seen with Salome, her large Snake Weapon, which, despite the skull it wears, is usually smiling.

Despite Hancock normally looking either calmly, beautiful or cute (in an attempt to "apologize" for her actions), whenever she is angered, she looks very intimidating, with her eyes bulging madly and her teeth bared, as seen when Smoker nearly killed Luffy, causing the attacker to stop his assault and sweat profusely.

Before Hancock fell in love with Luffy, and whenever 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 girl in love.

Along with her sisters, on her back is the slave mark of the Tenryubito, something that she was so intent on keeping secret and was willing to petrify anyone (other than her sisters and Elder Nyon) who saw it. In order to make sure it was never seen, she and her sisters concocted a lie that what was really on the sisters' backs were pairs of Gorgon eyes which would petrify anyone who sets eyes on them. Hancock uses this "curse" as an excuse for her and her sisters' Devil Fruit abilities.

Personality[]

Hancock is a very complex woman. At first glance, she appears to be selfish, pompous, spoiled and used to having her own way. She can also act arrogant and cruel, usually justifying her less-than-admirable actions with her unmatched 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 approach, with gleeful suitors of both genders happily forgiving her every transgression). She also 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 anyway because she is beautiful.

For her culture, it was believed that the most beautiful is the strongest of all. Thus, her unparalleled beauty is equated to her strength and is usually the meaning behind her large claims of forgiveness for beauty.

Because of her beauty and strength, she is used to seeing men and women, young and old alike, regardless of race, fall instantly in love and lust after her. As a result, people often forgive her instantly whenever she acts cutely while apologizing or after being reminded of her beauty. However, when Luffy came along and displayed complete immunity to her charms, she initially felt that she could not bear the existence of someone completely invulnerable to her powers, and would collapse dramatically whenever insulted.

Though this feeling gradually eroded away, as she now loves Luffy despite his immunity or rather loves him more because of it, along with his attribute of viewing everyone equal, thus not judging her for her past as a slave - which is generally looked down upon - as well as his selflessness in protecting the Amazons who helped him, then ensuring her and her sisters' secrets aren't exposed to Amazon Lily, and his fearless declaration of disdain for the Celestial Dragons, including the ones that had caused suffering to her and her sisters. Hancock also willing to obey every orders that Luffy gives her just so she will strengthen her love for him as well she can never disobey any orders Luffy gives her due to her fiercely love for him. After getting a hug from Luffy by giving him the key to Ace's Seastone cuffs, Hancock increased her love for Luffy even further when she desired to marry Luffy. Each time Luffy calls out to her name, Hancock blushed even more as well she declared that she can "die happily" before she faints. Hancock has a hard time looking at Luffy as well she collapsed from too much heart fluttering whenever she looks at Luffy's eyes. Even after the two year time-skip, Hancock continues to be in love with Luffy as much as before, despite the latter openly rejecting multiple wedding proposals from her due to his pursuit for the One Piece and becoming the Pirate King. She is still determined to become Luffy's wife no matter what.

Hancock's love for Luffy is so powerful that it passed down to her clone, S-Snake when the Seraphim behaves just like the real Hancock when having her love for Luffy inside of the Seraphim making the "authority chip" to be rendered useless meaning that not even Vegapunk himself or the Five Elders would able to control S-Snake so long as Luffy is around and order the Seraphim just like Hancock, although Vegapunk didn't program S-Snake to act like the real Hancock. Anyone who hurts Luffy, Hancock will become an extremely angry when she make them suffer pain as they did to her beloved Luffy. Her love for Luffy is unconditionally when Hancock doesn't even care about Luffy's heritage such as being the son of Dragon (who she refers the World's Worst Criminal as the "devil") and grandson of Garp (who Hancock refer to the legendary Marine Hero as "grandfather").

While Hancock was effortlessly capable of seduction due to her overwhelming beauty and confidence, her knowledge of actual relationships is incredibly naïve, and essentially child-like. Luffy's habit of misremembering names caused him to call her "Hammock," numerous times, but upon his correct use of "Hancock," she interpreted it as a marriage proposal, which to her instantly meant they were already married; she would go on to keep tally of each subsequent time that he used her correct name, being elated each time. Yet later upon receiving Luffy's gratitude, Hancock decided that meant they were engaged, even though - as Lady Nyon sarcastically corrects her - that would be a reversal from the marriage Hancock imagined they had. Thus, showing her understanding of romance was surprisingly ignorant.

Mainly exclusive to the anime, Hancock became prone to fantasies about a romance with Luffy, which often cast him comically with a different art style, as a shojo manga love interest. While thinly veiling it as simply conversation, Hancock wished to learn more about Luffy, which eventually covered his crew; upon learning of Nami and Robin, she immediately thought they were romantic rivals, and became despondent on the thought of being discarded in favour of them. However, her resolve was so strong that she dismissed her feelings of jealousy, feeling confident that she and she alone would win Luffy's heart as well she will never give up on Luffy due to her love for Luffy is too powerful.

Even after Luffy leaves to travel the New World with his crew, Hancock continues to pine for him, still loving him deeply; evidently, and to the chagrin of Lady Nyon, Hancock would sigh aloud about her wish to be wed to Luffy at least once a day.

Due to her traumatic past, negative worldview, and narcissism she built as a defense mechanism, Hancock refused to be sympathetic to anyone, except her sisters, Marigold and Sandersonia. However, after Luffy opened her heart, she became capable of empathy for others beyond her sisters; while still largely focused on Luffy, she was able to understand his grief at losing Ace, and felt regret for being unable to do more, even though she already had did as much as she could have possibly done. Similarly, she became a moderately more compassionate leader to the Kuja, changing their fear and respect for her to just respect.

Ever since she lost her title as a Warlord as well her home was invaded by both the Marines and Blackbeard, Hancock finally made her decision of leaving Amazon Lily in her quest to reunite with Luffy because she missed him, as well as Hancock still intending to marry Luffy although it is unknown of Hancock is aware of Luffy's rise as one of the Four Emperors now that both Big Mom and Kaido are gone. Hancock nonetheless needs Luffy's help to protect her and her people from the World Government.

It was revealed the reason for Hancock's lies and attitude towards life was that because of her horrible past, she did not want to ever show weakness again to anyone. She harboured 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 Kujas. This caused her surrogate mother, Elder Nyon, to fear that Hancock had or will eventually truly turned as cold as ice. It wasn't until Hancock confessed everything to Luffy that she finally showed emotions, breaking down in tears after reliving her painful memories and finding someone who she could share her locked away emotions and burdens with, without being frown against. She was also heartened when Luffy told them not to force themselves to tell him their story if it was too painful.

Deep down, Hancock is a rather-sensitive and vulnerable woman who is afraid and concerned about how other people (especially the other Kuja) might react to the truth of the shameful past that she and her sisters share. She is also much more soft and compassionate towards others when she opens up. That part of her was only first shown for the first time in several years in front of Monkey D. Luffy since then, she has befriended and even fallen 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 brother.

Hancock has also shown to be very sly and crafty when the situation demands it. This was particularly evident when she aided Monkey D. Luffy into discreetly breaking through Impel Down's outer defenses, as well as manipulating the great prison warden, Magellan, to her whims before relaying a secret message to Luffy's brother Ace, whom Luffy was trying to rescue. She has also proven to be a very skilled liar who is excellent at fabricating stories, and her confidence leads her to minimize if not outright negate the potential consequences of her actions. An example of this is when she takes advantage of her beauty in Floor 6 of Impel that harbours the world's worst prisoners and turned them mad and lustful. It made them disrespect Magellan which in turn starting killing the impertinent inmates. This caused enough havoc for her to speak with Ace freely without anyone noticing.

She was able to easily feign a confident demeanor without any hints of trepidation when Vice Admiral Momonga suspected that she was hiding something underneath her cloak. This façade duped him into believing that she was innocent after she gave him permission to search her which he rejected. After being hounded by derogatory and lecherous comments by men and women alike for years, she was unperturbed by the rudeness of the worst criminals of level 6 Impel Down as she delivered her message to Ace. Luffy is the only one whom has continuously shattered her previously thought impervious façade.

She was completely unfazed when Blackbeard was strangling her, as she absolutely refused to give him even a hint of fear or submissiveness while shown her disgust towards him. Her conqueror's spirit was shown when she openly declared she won’t bow down to either the Marines or Blackbeard, and welcomed them to kill her before she would ever be another's captive. She also used her love for Luffy as strength, as she harshly rejected Blackbeard's crude invitations and threats, since she declared only Luffy is worthy of touching her while she (much like Luffy) developed an immensely hatred towards Blackbeard as well considered the Emperor to be her mortal enemy due to him being Luffy's arch-nemesis when Hancock hating Blackbeard worse than other men for choking her.

After the Blackbeard Pirates and Marines retreated, Hancock is shown worried that she is not safe on Amazon Lily anymore so long as she stays including she will endanger her sisters (Sandersonia and Marigold), her adoptive mother (Gloriosa), and the rest of the Kuja Tribe due to the Marines' persistence. Without any choice, Hancock resolved herself of leaving Amazon Lily under the protection of both Rayleigh and Shakky (one of her predecessors) for her reunion with Monkey D. Luffy (who Hancock always loves) just so she and the Kujas will be safe and for Hancock to avoid from getting captured by the World Government, due to Luffy's status as one of the Four Emperors now that both Big Mom and Kaido are gone.

Relationships[]

Family[]

Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold[]

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 case 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's assistance to travel to Impel Down, Marigold and Sandersonia vehemently disagreed with the idea. However, when Hancock accepted his request, they respected her wishes, as well as her infatuation with Luffy, and wished the best of luck for them.

Given the way little girls are born on their island, in that women who have traveled abroad return pregnant, it is unknown if the three share the same father, or are even blood related due to their different appearances, but it is assumed that they share the same mother.

After the invasion of the Marines and Blackbeard, Hancock would endanger her younger sisters' lives if she stays in Amazon Lily since she was disqualified as a Warlord. She has decided to leave Amazon Lily under both Shakky and Rayleigh's protection, for her reunion with Luffy just so her sisters Sonia and Mari, would be safe. Her little sisters aren't against Hancock's quest to reunite with Luffy as they need Luffy's help to protect their big sister.

Gloriosa[]

Before the time-skip, Hancock takes the role akin to that of an ungrateful brat to Gloriosa, even though Gloriosa helped her and her sisters get back to Amazon Lily. Gloriosa tried to convinced Hancock to accept the summon but she refused. Hancock then reminds Gloriosa that her previous actions is considered traitorous to the Kuja and told to stop bossing her around since Hancock is the current Empress of Amazon Lily. After which, she threw Gloriosa out of the window and called her as an "irritable old hag". Despite their previous interactions, Gloriosa still deeply cares for Hancock as though she was her daughter. In a similar vein, Hancock values Gloriosa's experience and sagacious insights. She especially appreciates Gloriosa's romantic advices and support for her relationship with Luffy.

She's aware that had Gloriosa not been at sea at the time, she and her sisters would have nowhere to go and probably be subjected to more suffering. Gloriosa treats the three sisters as though they were her own daughters. In many of their interactions, the relationship between the two is akin to a teenage daughter and a mother, further amplified by their differences and age. Regardless, Hancock does have a degree of respect for Gloriosa as she went to seek her wisdom so as to understand her sudden and first ever feeling of love, which Hancock later thanked her for. In return, Gloriosa actively supports and is proud of Hancock's decision in helping the object of her love, instead of allowing it to consume and kill her. She is glad to see a momentous and positive change in the Empress, understanding that she is pivotal to the prosperity of their people.

Gloriosa was annoyed by Hancock's antique when she hung a giant portrait of Luffy on the castle wall, defacing a historical site seemingly on a whim. That said, the poster remained there despite her vexation and she eventually accepted it.

After the Blackbeard Pirates and Marines had invaded, Hancock is deciding to leave Amazon Lily for the island's safety in her quest to reunite with Luffy, which Gloriosa isn’t against as Rayleigh and Shakky are residing there.

Salome[]

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 commonly seen next to her. Hancock seems to be close to Salome as the snake was visibly worried when Hancock suddenly became ill because of her love sickness. Salome has been seen assisting Hancock in many of her heated battles with strong adversaries. Her orders are absolute and she would willingly follow any of her master's commands.

During the Blackbeard Pirates and the Marines invading on Amazon Lily, Salome accompanied Hancock on her throne while refusing Koby's surrender to her and move forwards to the battlefield. Few weeks after Rayleigh saved Amazon Lily, Salome was nowhere to be seen as Hancock worries about her people and her sisters would continue to endanger as long as she's there; the Marines won't stop coming until resolving herself to leave the island to reunite with Luffy for the Kuja's safety and even herself. It is unknown what happened to Salome after Hancock's home island was in crisis by the Marines and the Blackbeard Pirates.

Kuja Tribe[]

Hancock has a complex relationship with her Kuja subjects, protecting them from the World Government, but refusing to continue protecting them by working with the latter. She also destroyed a clay statue of her, made by several little girls, simply because it was made from dirt, mud and clay, and petrified three Kuja warriors (Marguerite, Sweet Pea and Aphelandra) for allowing a man (Monkey D. Luffy) to enter the island and defending his crime. However, there has been no Kuja who does not love and admire Hancock. Her people wholeheartedly agrees with every decision she makes (apart from Elder Nyon, to an extent) as they know she has their best interest at heart.

Marguerite showed no hard feelings towards Hancock after she was un-petrified. Hancock likewise actually cares what they would think of her if they knew she was once a slave, even though she is now an Empress, and fears she would bring shame onto the tribe if they were aware of her past. So she's continuously lied to them to protect herself and her sisters. She even referred to them as her brethren, as opposed to her subjects.

Ever since Hancock fell in love with Luffy, she began to outwardly treat the Kuja warriors kindly. She sometimes goes as far as offering to personally help them prepare food for Luffy's recovery. On their end, the entire tribe is fiercely loyal to her and looks to her for guidance in times of need, supporting her every decision, including her love life. Hancock was willing to be the only person to have to leave their home if it meant they could remain safe. She was against being protected and fought on the front lines for weeks with her subjects to protect their home together.

After the invasion of both the Marines and Blackbeard Pirates, Hancock concluded that she would endanger the Kuja Tribe if she continues to stay in Amazon Lily since the Marines are too persistent. To provide a new safe haven for her people, she has decided to leave her home nation under the protection of Rayleigh and the two previous empresses, Shakky and Glorisa for Hancock's reunion with Luffy of needing his help to protect Hancock and her people from the World Government. Her people supports her decision and desires to reunite with Luffy, understanding it's the best decision she can undertake in order to ensure the safety of her people since Luffy is one of the Four Emperors.

Friends[]

Silvers Rayleigh[]

Silvers Rayleigh became very good friends with Boa Hancock and her sisters due to their long history of knowing one another. He is one of the two exceptions in regards to Boa Hancock's hatred towards men, as he helped her and her sisters escaped from the World Nobles. The other being Monkey D. Luffy (Hancock's love interest and the only man who was bold enough to punch a Celestial Dragon). They are on friendly terms as when Rayleigh told Hancock that no women are allowed during Luffy's training, Hancock scolded him by pinching his nose, but managed to calm her down because he reasoned it was all for Luffy's sake.

Initially he was perplexed as to how Luffy was able to infiltrate the infamous Impel Down though it eventually dawned on him that it was only possible through Hancock's assistance. After which, his theory was proven true when Shakky suggested that Hancock had fell in love with Luffy, overcoming her disdain for men. He was further astonished by her women's intuition after getting a good look at Hancock's and Luffy's close and apparent dynamic causing him to smile as he recalls his own relationship with Shakky.

After her status as a Warlord was stripped, Rayleigh immediately rushed to Amazon Lily to assist Hancock in protecting her island, inadvertently scaring off Blackbeard in the process with his advanced Conqueror's Haki as well saving Hancock's life from getting killed by Teach. He apologies to her for being late and frankly told Blackbeard that he despises him greatly for what he did to Hancock and the island. Rayleigh also brought along Shakky, the former Empress of Amazon Lily from 2 generations ago, and comforted Hancock, lending his knee to her after her ordeal when she could let her guard down again. He gave her a peace of mind that since they are now here, she can be more reassured and not have to take on this mantle alone. Rayleigh has shown to fulfil a father-like role to Hancock, while Shakky her predecessor of 2 generations is akin to a mother-like figure. Since Amazon Lily is no longer safe if she continues to stay, Hancock has decided to leave her home under Rayleigh's protection, intending to reunite with her love interest, Monkey D. Luffy just the Kuja will be safe.

Shakuyaku[]

The former empress Shakuyaku is Hancock's predecessors from 2 generation ago. Shakky provided shelter for the three sisters after they escaped from the Celestial Dragon at Mary Geoise and helped of sending them back to Amazon Lily. She has strong respect for Shakky unlike Gloriosa who at times becomes overly "naggy" and oppressive.

These two Empresses also shares a commonality whereby they fell in love with a man and chose to act upon their affection, not allowing their feelings to dictate their deaths. Thus, Shakky understands and supports Hancock's feelings for Luffy as she continues to experience the same affection but for Rayleigh. Shakky is like a role model and a mother figure to Hancock, both as a leader, and as someone who was able to have her love requited.

After Hancock had lost her status as a Warlord, Shakky immediately rushed to her old home and alongside Rayleigh, they were able to drive both the Marines and Blackbeard Pirates off, saving Hancock's life. Shakky then recommended Hancock that she must leave their home nation for her and their Kujas' safety since the Calm Belt (including Amazon Lily) is no longer safe for Hancock so long she stays when the Marines are being such nuisances. Without any choice due to the Marines' persistence, Hancock willingly obliged to her predecessor's advise and decided to leave Amazon Lily and the Kuja under Shakky's protection, when she intends for her reunion with Luffy just so the Kuja Tribe will be safe.

Monkey D. Luffy[]

Originally antagonistic towards him, Hancock saw Luffy as a man who, being immune to her charms despite seeing her naked, could not be allowed to exist. She refused to believe his story of being sent to the island by Bartholomew Kuma, and ordered his execution. She also thought he was just like all men in the world; selfish and arrogant, but was proven wrong and was even moved by his acts of selflessness. Luffy is quite possibly the only one (beside Rayleigh and Shakky), outside her family, that she truly considers a friend and ever opened her heart to.

She chose to befriend him after he covered the back of her sister even though they were fighting, just so nobody could see the Tenryuubito's slave mark on them. When given a choice to either save Marguerite, Sweet Pea, and Aphelandra or benefit himself, he unhesitatingly chose them. Moreover, he went as far as to strike one of the World Nobles, and harbored no hatred for Hancock for being their slave in the past. As such, due to Luffy's bravery, selflessness and kind heart, Hancock has fallen in love with Luffy, causing her to contract "Love Sickness", which was the cause of death of nearly all of the previous Empresses. However, Elder Nyon says that because most of the previous Empresses died because they tried to suppress their feelings by distancing themselves from their object of affection, Hancock will survive by accepting and being with Luffy. She also willing to obey every of Luffy's orders to strengthen her love for him.

Due to her feelings, Hancock has a hard time looking Luffy in the eye and tends to blush in his presence (much like a young girl with a crush). She is also prone to daydreams involving Luffy. She requested that Luffy call her Hancock, as opposed to her title, and nearly fainted the first time he called her by her given name correctly, given the fact that he had said it wrong a few times before, calling her "Hammock". Moments after, 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 tends to faint in joy whenever Luffy says her name right and apparently is keeping count of how many times he has said her name correctly. When Luffy hugged her during the Battle of Marineford and uttered many sentences of appreciation, she thought of it as his proposal of marriage. Later on, Nyon told her that it doesn’t count as such. As a result, Hancock is now set on the idea of marrying Luffy. Even though Luffy says that he is not going to marry Hancock since he is still in pursuit of his goal, she still loves him very much and is not deterred in the slightest by this.

During the Battle of Marineford, Hancock states that all men, both Marine and pirate alike, are her enemies, Luffy standing as the sole exception. Even after finding out the truth about Luffy's heritage of being the son of the Revolutionary Dragon, she cast it aside and did not care even if he is the son of the devil. She is also extremely protective of Luffy, going so far as to attack Commodore Smoker for restraining Luffy, much to the shock of the Marines watching them. She even openly declared Luffy as her beloved. Hancock also cast Luffy's relation with Garp aside when she calls the Marine Hero as "grandfather".

In fact, ever since Luffy's arrival at Marineford, all Hancock could do was focus her attention on Luffy's well-being, bursting out in anger whenever he was attacked and shivering in fear whenever he was attacked. Upon reaching Luffy after the war and receiving information about his critical condition from Trafalgar Law, Hancock expressed her desire to be the one who should have taken all the suffering in Luffy's place. She cares so much for Luffy that she barely ate any food upon her return to Amazon Lily until she was sure that Luffy was all right, and even then commanded that as much food as possible be given to him so that he may recover.

While at this point Luffy does not have the same romantic feelings towards Hancock that she feels towards him, he has shown that he genuinely cares for and appreciates her after everything that she has done for him. Luffy viewed Hancock as his close friend and trusted ally. After realizing all the pain and suffering she endured in her past, Luffy immediately forgiven Hancock of her actions as well as he has kept her secret between them by never telling anyone (including the Kuja and Marguerite) of her identity as a former slave of the Celestial Dragons. During his fight 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 afterward that she had saved him twice, both in helping him break into Impel Down and giving him the key to Ace's Seastone handcuffs.

After the time-skip, he willingly listened to her advice and dons the disguise she manufactured for him. Furthermore, he thanked her for all the logistics she prepared for him. He later laments that he had to removed his disguise. They then made a promise to meet again in the new world as he wants to "see her again" and vows to "never say goodbye".

Hancock regularly keeps tracks of all of Luffy's escapades and frequently thinks about him as she leads her people.

After losing her status as a Warlord and her home nation being frequently threatened by the Marines and Blackbeard Pirates due to her presence, Hancock made her decision of leaving her home and the Kuja Tribe under the care of Rayleigh and Shakky as she travelling and relocating elsewhere so they wouldn’t be targeted or chased by the World Government. The best and only safest option that came to her mind was to find Luffy and being by his side, as she reiterates that she still wants to marry the new Emperor although it is unknown if Hancock is aware of Luffy's rise as one of the Four Emperors after the downfalls of both Big Mom and Kaido, assumed it doesn't matter to Hancock anyways because she still desired to be with Luffy just so he can protect her from the Marines' persistently attempts of arresting her.

In Egghead, Luffy mistook S-Snake for the original Hancock. He demanded the Seraphim to undo her petrification on Franky, Usopp and Lilith. Amazingly, she granted his request due to S-Snake contained Hancock's romantic feelings for Luffy. Luffy thanked her as well S-Snake (like the real Hancock) believed Luffy said "I love you" instead of "Thank you". Hancock's love is so powerful that made S-Snake's "authority chip" to be rendered useless (not even Vegapunk or the Five Elders could order the Seraphim herself) so long as Luffy is around.

Former Warlords[]

Jinbe[]

Hancock has shown to be very distrusting towards Jinbe when they first met, but because he helped save Luffy, she allowed him to seek refuge on her island until he was fully healed. In fact, Hancock has shown to have grown respect for Jinbe protecting Luffy and even allowed him to explore her island to watch over a heart-broken Luffy, making Jinbe the second man to have ever been allowed in her country, showing Hancock has come to trust Jinbe greatly. Jinbe has shown to have a great fear of crossing her after she made her refusal clear of not letting him eat more than required of "Luffy's food" (that she prepared for Luffy only). Despite their questionable relationship, they are allies against the World Government. They also share a connected past against slavery where Jinbe's captain liberated a number of slaves with Hancock and her sisters being among them. It is unknown if Hancock is aware that Jinbe was close friends with Fisher Tiger or was a member of his crew.

Jinbe considered S-Snake to be nicer than the real Hancock. When realizing S-Snake contained Hancock's love for Luffy, Jinbe shown praised as well considered S-Snake to be a perfect clone of Hancock due to her love for Luffy.

Trafalgar D. Water Law[]

Because of Law's willingness to help Luffy during his time of need, Hancock put much of her faith in him and thanked him for saving Luffy, making Law one of the few men she's come to respect or at least endure the presence of aside from Luffy, Rayleigh, and Jinbe. She provided Law and his crew with food and shelter on her island under the terms they did not enter her city. Law also has shown to be among the few men who have has no interest in her beauty but the same could not be said about his crew. To ensure Luffy's safety she did not tell the Marines anything of their private meeting.

Enemies[]

World Government and Marines[]

Despite used to be one of the Shichibukai, 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 as a Shichibukai (before its abolishment), she would never willingly take orders from the World Government or answers their summons, despite having an obligation to do so. This was evidenced when she lied about her agreement to wage war against the Whitebeard Pirates so as to simply get them off her back temporarily. She does not think twice about attacking her falsely allies in the Marines. In some cases, her friction with the World Government has reached dangerous levels, which even Elder Nyon criticizes.

She accepted to fight Whitebeard only because this allowed Monkey D. Luffy to rescue the important prisoner Portgas D. Ace (yet unknown to the World Government). Even though she agreed to fight against Whitebeard, she made it clear that the Marines are not her allies, after she started attacking without any distinction against both pirates and Marines alike during the war. Her continuous support of Luffy during the war has put further strain on her status as a Shichibukai. The upper echelons is shown to have great respect for her prowess and agreed that her assistance is pivotal if they ever hoped to defeat Whitebeard and his crew.

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. She also grew extremely angry at Aokiji when he stabbed Luffy with an icicle blade. After the events of the reverie, Marine Captain Koby and an entire fleet of ships (led by Vice-Admiral Yamakaji) was sent out to capture the now most wanted Pirate Empress, though she was less than impressed by the ongoing events as well she truly doesn't even care about her former title anymore. Fleet Admiral Sakazuki was against making the Shichibukais their enemies, but had to obey the decision of the nations. On the other hand, Admiral Fujitora was happy that they were abolished as they now had to rely on the Marine's top secret SSG. Koby offered Hancock a peace solution to surrender herself and come with the Marines just so the World Government will spare her people. However, Hancock angrily refused to submit and declared she will never become a prisoner to the World Government again (due to her being a former slave of the Celestial Dragons).

Even with the Seraphims, the Marines and Koby were unsurprisingly no match for Hancock (because they're just too weak against her) as she easily defeated and petrified Vice-Admiral Yamakaji and almost all of the Marines to stones instantly, leaving Koby himself to be totally defenseless and weak. She later restored them back, forcing the Marines to retreat thanks in part to both Silvers Rayleigh and former empress Shakuyaku making sure they enforce their part of the bargain. That said, the Marines are still persistently nuisances as they won't stop trying to invade Amazon Lily as long as she stays there, wanting to secure her Devil Fruit at all cost. Thus, she resolves herself to leave her home and reunite with Luffy, her beloved Emperor and the future Pirate King who has blatantly fought against the World Government countless times and the Government always failed to secure Luffy's Devil Fruit (Hito-Hito no Mi, Model: Nika under the fake name as "Gomu Gomu no Mi") just so the Government won't be able to get to Hancock or Luffy.

Men[]

Due to her hellish experience with every man she ever saw, the one who painfully burned the Hoof of the Soaring Dragon onto her back, Hancock has a bitter hatred towards all men (the only exceptions being Luffy, her love interest, and Rayleigh, who helped her and her sisters after they escaped from slavery). She felt no loyalty as she indiscriminately attacked pirates and Marine soldiers alike during the war as she states all men are the same except for Luffy.

What she thinks of Ace is unknown, as he is Luffy's brother (though she was slightly surprised to find out they were not blood-related,). She did not show much antagonism towards him during their first meeting, and she even stole the key to his shackles to give to Luffy before the war. She felt grief for Ace as he was mercilessly killed by Akainu right in front of Luffy, finding it a traumatic experience for anyone to have to go through, wishing instead that she was the one that was there. She then hoped to relive Luffy of his pain as she shared it with him, wanting to lighten it as much as possible.

Hancock also declare she follows no man's orders except that she is only follows one man's orders.

She also made exceptions for the Heart Pirates for saving Luffy, with Jinbe receiving similar treatment. This could be due to his actions in protecting Luffy during the war which resulted in him ending up as a fellow patient of the Heart Pirates alongside Luffy, or the possibility of her cathartic rescue by Fisher Tiger which resulted in her having a better impression of Fishmen. Of course, it may also be due to the fact that Jinbe is a member and the current leader of Fisher Tiger's crew, the Sun Pirates.

Marshall D. Teach[]

Get your hand off me. Disgusting.
~ Hancock developing her hatred towards Blackbeard when he is choking her.

Due to him being Luffy's arch-nemesis who is responsible for the Summit War at Marineford, Blackbeard is a mortal enemy of Boa Hancock. He came to Amazon Lily looking for Hancock to kill her and steal her Mero Mero no Mi. He tells his crewmates that they can do what they want with her after he steals her power (like Devon wants to add Hancock's head to her collection of the severed heads of the most beautiful women and Vasco Shot pleaded Blackbeard and Devon to keep Hancock alive to make her as their "friend" due to his dark perversion nature). He was able to catch her off-guard with the assistance of Coby though he was impressed and shared that she is deserving of the title of Empress. A high praised considering how he did not acknowledge Luffy in becoming the fifth emperor after the events of Whole Cake Island and defeat of Cracker & Katakuri. Hancock went on to tell the Yonko to get his filthy hands off her, showing her disdain for him (similar to Luffy's own hatred towards Blackbeard). He shares how he admires her power and admitted having an eye on her powers for a while, similar to the Yami-Yami & Gura-Gura fruits as well later Ope Ope no Mi.

She went on to tell him that her beauty is the only reason her powers work and that even if he kills her and inherits her fruit, her powers won't bring his executives back to normal and that he will never be able restore them. Blackbeard shown no concern for his crew (when he always refers to them as "idiots") and replies that it was a sacrifice he was willing to make. He reprimands Coby for falling for her sugar talk as Coby pleaded for them to listen to her.

He asserts how there is no guarantee that he could incapacitate her again and that if he wasn’t using his Yami Yami No Mi on her, they would all be easily turned to stone and be killed by her. She tells him that she will undo his crew's petrification if he leaves but Blackbeard was still adamant in killing her as she was too dangerous. His attempt was foiled when Rayleigh arrived to drive Blackbeard off, causing the Yonko to leave for fear of facing the wrath of the Pirate Empress and Dark King at the same time.

After the invasion on Amazon Lily, Blackbeard's actions (along with the Marines) has caused Hancock to leave her home forcefully, in the Snake Princess' quest to reunite with her love interest and Blackbeard's arch-nemesis, Luffy just to provide her safety.

Other[]

Fisher Tiger[]

Fisher Tiger freed Hancock and her sisters, along with many other slaves, during his rampage at Mariejois. Having met (or at least seen) him only once, she was shocked by his recklessness, and terrified of the brutality with which he fought. However, she has stated she owes him a debt which can never be repaid after he passed away.

Straw Hat Pirates[]

It is unknown how Hancock feels towards the Straw Hat crew, as Luffy is the captain of the crew. She seems to care about them (due to her love for Luffy), as she willingly protected them from the Marines and helped them set sail to Fishman Island. The Straw Hats appreciates what she did for them, as Brook and Sanji have already fallen for the Pirate Empress's beauty (with Sanji turning to stone just looking at her & Brook fainting after seeing her winked at Luffy). Usopp was also smitten by her and referred to her as the most beautiful woman he had ever seen in addition to calling her a Goddess. As for Robin, she cheerfully explains Hancock's renowned name and beauty across the world to the crew and is shown to respect her. Nami was greatly surprised to see that Luffy met such a prominent Shichibukai, also made Sanji angrily jealous upon learning his relationship to Hancock, to the point he laments about he is in "hell" while Luffy was in "heaven."

In the anime, when Luffy told Hancock about his crew, she became incredibly jealous of Nami and Robin, thinking they were her love rivals. She became determined and vows not to lose against them even though unbeknownst to her, their relationships to their captain is purely platonic.

Abilities and Powers[]

Hancock is widely considered to be extremely powerful by friend and foe alike. Ruling beside her sisters, Hancock has power over Amazon Lily and the rest of the Kuja tribe. As the empress and captain of the tribe, she is most likely the strongest Kuja warrior. The Kuja believe that "strength is beauty", and since all members of the tribe state that she is the most beautiful in the world, they unanimously believe that she is the most powerful, and the strongest among their entire tribe. It is to be noted that only the strongest Kuja warriors are allowed in the country's pirate crew, Hancock and her sisters were strong enough to be there when they were small children, although it is possible though unlikely that they were just apprentices like Shanks and Buggy when they were in the Future Pirate King's crew.

Her strength is so great that it has even been acknowledged by the Fleet Admiral of the time, Sengoku of the Marines. Even former Admiral Kuzan commented on her skills, stating she's not to be underestimated. Most recently, Emperor of the Sea Marshall D. Teach praised her prowess and of all devil fruits he could had gotten when the big powers were distracted with one another, he decided to attain Hancock's fruit.

Further testament to her strength is how she was one of three Shichibukais who managed to leave the war without sustaining any injuries. The fact that she can earn a 80,000,000 bounty after her first campaign 13 years ago as a pirate further supports her capabilities.

This is shown when she had managed to destroy an army of Pacifistas single handedly (by petrifying beforehand the incredibly tough alloy of which they are composed of) without showing signs of exhaustion or injury, where it took the whole Straw Hat crew (before their two-year training) to take down just one, which left them severely worn out. While it is true that the Pacifistas were programmed not to attack their allies, to destroy so many of them is a difficult task regardless. She was even fast enough to destroy the heads of the Pacifistas when they were still shooting lasers made of Light at Luffy, before they could even disengage.

Hancock is quite skilled in the arts of subterfuge and deception, managing to disguise Monkey D. Luffy inside her coat without eliciting much suspicion across an entire boat voyage and even inside the heavily fortified Impel Down. She was incredibly astute and prudent, as she proposed spreading the tale of the "Gorgon curse" so as to prevent her subordinates from discovering the humiliating brand of enslavement on their backs. Hancock is also very intelligent, sly, and crafty when the situation demands it, being able to buy Luffy time using her charms, after overhearing Chief Warden Magellan's plan to halt his infiltration. She effortlessly managed to manipulate the events at Level Six of Impel Down by creating a commotion between the residing prisoners and a "protective" Magellan to speak to Portgas D. Ace in private and not attract any attention. Additionally, she successfully stole the key to Ace's handcuffs for Luffy prior to his arrival, knowing it would be useful.

She has been shown to be very adept in hand-to-hand combat, often in tandem with her Devil Fruit abilities. She was able to fight through many of the New World pirates effortlessly. Similar to Sanji's fighting style, Hancock seems to prefer kicking-based attacks, whether from kicking in-the-way cute animals or her enemies. Though she's stronger in short-range combat, Hancock is also adept and proficient in long-range attacks and is capable of using her Devil Fruit powers to strike her enemies from a long distance.

Even as a child amongst adults who were all trained elite fighters, her prodigious and innate talents could not be ignored as she swiftly rose up the ranks to become the island Empress. She is shown to be perspicacious and sagacious, knowing how to keep a sense of unflappability even in the most dreadful of situations such as when she was accosted with repugnant comments from the level 6 prisoners of Impel down. She has a wealth of experience leading an army of strong fighters for more than a decade with her reputation spanning far and wide amongst all, possibly tantamount to even an Emperor of the sea.

Boa Hancock also has high pain tolerance and mental fortitude due to the innumerable amounts of stressful circumstances and battles she has faced since childhood which is the main reason of Hancock hating men and the World Government for all the pain and suffering she endured by the World Nobles.

She has a powerful willpower as seen when she was completely unfazed by Luffy's and Rayleigh's Haoshoku Haki, the latter causing Blackbeard and Coby to be intimidated by the Advanced version of his Haki. Due to her strong will, she refused to submit to the likes of her enemies, as seen when she rejected Koby's peace solution to surrender herself. She refuses to relegate herself as a prisoner to the World Government or anyone else again, especially after her traumatic ordeal at the hands of the World Nobles in her early years. She also refused to submitted herself to Blackbeard even though he was choking her initially.

Her 1,659,000,000 berries bounty is a testament to her powers. Despite no longer being a Warlord, she is still considered to be an extremely dangerous threat to the World Government's operations.

Physical Abilities[]

Her raw strength is immense, showing obvious signs of super-human strength as she can easily break stone (in the form of petrified opponents) with a single kick, capable of breaking several modified Pacifistas without breaking a sweat (while Sanji nearly broke his leg attempting the same task, though she used her Mero Mero no Mi powers to turn them into stone first) and being able to kick Smoker in his smoke state with her Haki; although with all those examples, she could have been using Busoshoku Haki to strengthen her kicks. She is also extremely fast, being capable of blitzing Douglas Bullet in his giant form, despite the latter being fast enough to push back Gear 4 Luffy in that state.

She easily defeated Vice-Admiral Yamakaji (one of the five leaders of the Buster Call) and both Vasco Shot and Catalina Devon (two executives of the Blackbeard Pirates who were prisoners of Impel Down Level 6). She is shown to be far too powerful that even Koby would handle. Despite her abilities, she was apprehended by Blackbeard with a surprise attack after she was distracted by Coby. This combined with the physical and mental exhaustion while also having to protect her tribe from all the invaders for weeks, caused her to lose her focus momentarily. That said, Blackbeard did not allow himself to let down his guard unlike when he did with Magellan, knowing full well that she could kill him at any moment if he was unfocused.

Hancock has a large decree of durability as shown she was able to remain conscious when Blackbeard initially was choking the life out of her (before he spared her due to Rayleigh).

Devil Fruit[]

Feh!! My beauty is what makes this power formidable!! If you kill me, your little friends will remain statues forever!! Whoever inherited my power won't be able to release them!!
~ Hancock when revealing her Mero Mero no Mi's power and weaknesses to Blackbeard and Koby

More than 15 years ago, Hancock ate the Mero Mero no Mi (Love Love), a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit given by the World Nobles who enslaved her as a form of sick entertainment.

Those who fall in love with Hancock by seduction are susceptible to a range of techniques used by the Devil Fruit which can turn people into stone, from short to long-range attacks. Anyone with "dirty thoughts" or lusts after her will also be turned into stone, even if it was by stealing just one glance at her. A possible escape route comes in the form of extreme emotions like fear, pain, or simply out of ignorance. Other than that, she has the same standard weaknesses as all Devil Fruit users. There are hints that her powers may be awakened as she was able to turn inanimate objects and those who harbour no feelings into stone. Mysteriously, her powers could also completely and easily destroy a Sea Prism Weapon wielded by Smoker which was suppose to render her powers obsolete.

Whether old or young, dead or alive, inanimate or animate, creatures of all races and genders are susceptible to her attacks and can be turned to stone even if she isn’t focused on them.

As part of the secret to keep the shame on her and her sisters back secret, Hancock made the Kuja tribe believe that the power to turn people to stone was a curse given to her by killing a Gorgon monster.

According to her, the Mero Mero no Mi only became formidable due in part to her innate beauty, something that can’t be replicated. Regardless of a target's orientation or species, most are susceptible to her beauty. If Hancock dies, those who she turned to stone by her will remain petrified forever, meaning that her petrifying victims will die. Anyone who would inherits her powers, won't be able to turn those who were already petrified by Hancock back to normal as she is the only person able to do it. She claims only a woman who is par to her beauty can make this power works generally and it will be useless for anyone who is ugly and deformed (such as Blackbeard due to him being fat and gross when even Hancock calls him filthy).

The basic Love Love Beam appears to be a series of pink outlines of hearts (associated with love and romance), which was similar enough to Foxy's Slow-Slow Beam that projects yellow rings, thus initially startled Luffy due to his bad experiences of being slowed.

Haki[]

Like Silvers Rayleigh and her love interest, Monkey D. Luffy, Hancock is one of the rare people who has demonstrated proficiency in all three types of Haki: Busoshoku Haki, which uses her spiritual energy to augment her offensive and defensive capabilities similar to an invisible armour, Haoshoku Haki, an unlearnable ability that only one in several million people can use, and Kenbunshoku Haki, which allows users to sense other's intents and feelings, as well as precognition and enhanced sensory abilities. Among the Kuja, their Haki was said to be special even amongst high level marines, with Hancock possessing the strongest of them all.

Busoshoku Haki[]

She is shown using her Busoshoku Haki to kick a Logia fruit user such as Smoker and damage him when he had Luffy pinned to the ground. In the One Piece movie Stampede, she was able to single-handedly push back awakened Douglas Bullet with just one kick, though she admitted that his body was tough. The same feat required Gear 4 Boundman Luffy to accomplish. She is expected to be able to use the advance application of it in the form of projection as her sister once used it.

Haoshoku Haki[]

As she possesses Haoshoku Haki, it can be assumed that she can knock out a large number of individuals (with the exception of strong-willed people) with a massive burst. She also has an indomitable will, being completely unaffected by Luffy's burst of Haoshoku Haki in Marineford despite many high ranking marines immediately falling unconscious. She was also uninfluenced by Rayleigh's domineering burst of Haki which intimidated both Blackbeard and Coby, causing them to withdraw without a fight. Her exact level of mastery has yet to be demonstrated, but in tandem with her beauty, it is indubitably a formidable duo. Both of her epithets has royal status in them, fitting the mould that those given are blessed by heaven.

Kenbunshoku Haki[]

Hancock possesses the ability to use Kenbunshoku Haki as revealed in her vivre card. She was able to locate and pinpoint the large number of marines targeting her, and accurately incapacitated them after one attack.

Culinary Skill[]

Initially, Hancock was very bad at cooking, but now she became very good at cooking particularly meat which is Luffy's favourite food as revealed by her Vivre card. She would help out with her chefs in preparing meals, hoping to satisfy Luffy's appetite who would unfailingly always compliment her.

Weaknesses[]

  • Beauty Immunity: Though most beings are infatuated with a just glimpse of her due to uncontrollable emotions, pure hearted individuals such as Luffy are immune to a branch of her powers. Some can momentarily closed off their hearts by inflicting pain such as Momonga, who gained temporary immunity to Hancock's petrification abilities while the pain was active. (Though also putting themselves at a disadvantage and opening themselves to her other attacks). Blind people are also immune to Hancock's charms because of their inability to see such as Sebastian and Admiral Fujitora.
  • Inability to Swim: Like other Devil Fruit users, Hancock is unable to swim and could potentially drown.
  • Seastone: Like other Devil Fruit users, Hancock is 'vulnerable' to Seastone due to its nature of draining devil fruit powers. (Though this weakness may not be applicable or could be negated since she was able to destroy Smoker's Seastone weapon with a kick; also, when cuffed during her tour of Impel Down, she displayed no indication of weakness or fatigue that usually afflict those vulnerable to Seastone).
  • Love Sickness: Like the Previous Empresses of Amazon Lily, Hancock is subjected to Love Sickness (a disease that has killed the Previous Amazon Lily Empresses due to them declining their love for their man resulting in their deaths. Only applicable to Luffy). However, Hancock has since accepted her love for Luffy allowing her to survive.
  • The Claw of Celestial Dragons: Like her sisters, Boa Hancock's greatest weakness is the mark of the Celestial Dragons when she was enslaved. If revealed, she and her sisters might have to leave Amazon Lily to preserve the sanctity of her people despite their high ranks as rulers. However, due to Luffy's efforts of punching a Celestial Dragon, this not only relieved Hancock from her dark past, she also fell in love with Luffy as a result. This is not necessarily a physical impediment but rather a psychological one.
  • Yami Yami no Mi's Power Nullification: Like Portgas D. Ace (Luffy's brother) and her love interest Luffy, Hancock is vulnerable to Blackbeard's "Kurouzu" leaving her Mero Mero no Mi powerless, as long as they are in physical contact. However, this weakness can be circumvented if Blackbeard is not in contact with her, with her deadly counter attack being fast enough to make Blackbeard fearful of letting her go.
  • Indomitable Will: Like her love interest, Monkey D. Luffy, Hancock prideful nature can be a detriment as she would carry every burden alone if she has to, and even if the odds are stacked heavily against her, she would never back down. When she charged up to Koby, she did not factor in the fact that Blackbeard would capitalise on her blind spot, causing her to be apprehended by Blackbeard, who thanked Coby for his assistance.
  • Amazon Lily: After the Marines and Blackbeard Pirates invaded the island after she was no longer a Warlord, much devastation had been caused due to the Seraphims (one looks like Hancock herself and the other Dracule Mihawk) and Blackbeard himself. The things most precious to Hancock like her home, her sisters and finally her subjects would continue to be endangered as long as she stays at Amazon Lily, since the Marines persistently wants her at all cost. With this potentially being a hostage situation that could be used against her, she decided to leave Amazon Lily under both Rayleigh and Shakky's protection and relocated herself as Hancock's safest and best option left is to reunite with her love interest who is now an Emperor, Monkey D. Luffy who has the prestige, pedigree and understanding to resolve all these conundrums, just so the Marines won't be able to get to Hancock or Luffy.
  • Her love for Luffy: Due to her love for him, Hancock's precious weakness is Luffy for never hating her when he only despised the Celestial Dragons. As it demonstrated, Hancock will never try to attack or betray Luffy as she always obey every of his orders that Luffy gives her and can never disobey them due to her fiercely love and loyalty towards him. In Marineford, she let herself to be "easily defeated" by Luffy when he hugged her for giving him the key for Ace's handcuffs. According to Ran, Hancock has collapsed from her too much heart-fluttering for few seconds due to her love for Luffy. Her love for Luffy is proved to be an amazing weakness when Hancock's Seraphim clone, S-Snake granted Luffy's order to undo her petrification on Usopp, Franky and Lilith even earn the praise from Jinbe and Vegapunk (although he didn't program it to S-Snake) for Hancock's love for Luffy, making S-Snake's "authority chip" to be render useless (not even Vegapunk himself or the Five Elders can order the Seraphim) so long as Luffy is around and orders S-Snake just like to the real Hancock due to her love for Luffy to be very powerful.

    • Hancock was ranked 10th twice but later slightly increased to 7th.
    • Hancock is the 5th most popular Non-Straw Hat character.
  • When asked about the hardest character to draw, Hancock's name was put forth by Oda.
