Gol D. Roger also known as Gold Roger, was a posthumous protagonist of the series One Piece. He was the captain of the Roger Pirates. He was executed in his hometown Logue Town leaving the reason he is willing to be executed because of his illness (which cannot be cured). His bounty was 5,564,800,000. According to Brannew His and his arch foe, Whitebeard's bounties were unsurpassed.

He is voiced by the late Chikao Ohtsuka and Masane Tsukayama in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Sean Hennigan in the English version of the anime.


Roger was born in Logue Town in East Blue. He met Rayleigh and traveled together as pirates.

40 years ago, Roger formed an alliance with Monkey D. Garp to fight and kill Roger's first rival and the most dangerous of all pirates, Rocks D. Xebec. Years after Xebec's death, Roger fought against Edward Newgate countless times and Garp many times. In the Gold Pirates Era, Roger stolen the blueprints of Road Poneglyph from Big Mom (which caused her enraged). Roger has suffered an illness (which cannot be cured) as he is dying. Roger surrendered to the Government to be executed in his hometown Logue Town. Before the time of his execution, Roger entrusted Garp to look after his son although Garp would decline.

Before the moments of his execution, Roger told in public to go search of his treasure, One Piece which caused many pirates to go in catastrophe although Roger was executed as he died smiling as the member of the D,'s family.
