~ Trafalgar Law to Donquixote Doflamingo.

Trafalgar D. Water Law, more commonly known as just Trafalgar Law, is a major character in One Piece. He is an infamous rookie pirate and the captain of the Heart Pirates crew that hails from the North Blue. He is part of the group of pirates known as the Worst Generation, and is a former member of the Shichibukai. He is as a supporting character in the Paramount War Saga, the deuteragonist of the Dressrosa Saga, and a major ally in the Yonko Saga.

He is a friendly rival towards Luffy and hostile towards Eustass Kid.

His first bounty was 200,000,000 Berries. His second bounty was 440,000,000 before he joined the Shichibukai. After he was expelled from the Shichibukai, His current bounty is 500,000,000 Berries.

He is voiced by Hiroshi Kamiya in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Matthew Mercer and Brittany Lauda as a child in the English version of the anime.


Trafalgar Law is a thin young man with tanned skin. He often wears a yellow and black sweatshirt with his crew's Jolly Rodger on his chest. His sleeves are always rolled up, revealing tribal tattoos on his arms. He also has the letters D,E,T, and H tattooed on his right fingers, spelling Death without the A. Law says he is from the North Sea, specifically the North Blue. He wears the traditional Northern hat, but his has an animal print on it, along with his jeans. He has light shadows under both of is eyes, and he is always smiling a small smile. The only time he frowns is when people tell him what to do.


Law is a very carefree young man before the time-skip, and can be almost always seen smiling. However, he gave another pirate the finger when he called Trafalgar rude, and casually asked another how many Marines he had killed. He also enjoys watching other people fight, as he thinks that other will battle over simple things. But, he is kind to other people, as shown when he offers Jean Bart a place on his crew because of him being an escaped slave. He is also respectful of Eustass Kidd, calling him "Mister Kidd" and helping him to take on a Pacifista. He is also reckless which makes him a more wanted target by the world government when in a fight. He is also blunt when comes to answering questions. When Jimbei asked what would happen to Luffy if he moved around to much when he gets to the island Law simply stated his wounds would open and he would die. He and Bepo are usually seen together and he sometimes has Bepo holding his long Japanese sword called a Nodachi.

Law has displayed a more competitive side about him in the anime where he, along with Kid and Luffy, got into a childish argument about who gets to take down the marines stationed just outside the Human Auctioning House when the three Supernovas came out to confront them. In contrast, he does not seem as eager to reach the New World as the other Supernova crews are, believing that One Piece will still be there regardless while the other crews fight among themselves, and that he needs to steal the throne "properly".

However, Law appears to have a sense of honor (or at least respect for those he sees as potential rivals in the future), which is seen when he appears at Marineford and claims he will help Luffy, because it would be too lame if his future enemy were to die. He was also appalled when he heard that Caesar subjected the kids on Punk Hazard to drugs. This is in stark contrast to what most people seemed to think about him, since Scratchmen Apoo claimed that Law was infamous for his cruelty, and one of Smoker's men claimed he cut out the hearts of one hundred pirates and sent them to the government in order to gain the position of Shichibukai. Law has displayed a cruel side, offering to strike Tashigi yet again after already vivisecting her body in half. He also suggested to leave the kids on Punk Hazard behind, as they were too much of a burden to deal with.

Abilities and Powers

Weaklings can't pick their way of death.
~ Law to Tashigi

Law is a fearsome pirate who, along with most of his crew, proved resistant to Rayleigh's burst of Haki that took out almost everyone in the Auction house. He has earned the nickname "Surgeon of Death" due to his medical prowess in addition to his formidable combat abilities.

Law is a skilled swordsman, and has knowledge in medical fields due to his study at medical school. He's eaten the Op-Op Devil Fruit transforming him into a free modify human. Allowing him to create a spherical territory, in which he can disassemble, reform, and telekinetically control matter.

He can also cause other people to switch places in his field, as shown when he puts a Marine in the path of a cannonball shot at Bepo. Law can even teleport himself around the space he has opened up at will, even being able to swap out with something else exchanging places. Anything within his area space of influence is his to control to a tee, Law often uses his sword as a makeshift scalpel to cleave people or the surroundings apart even from afar, while people being affected by this power are normally left unharmed and can easily be brought back together if their split parts have been properly realigned, however his 'Radio knife' technique severs appendages and leaves them unable to be reattached for several minutes. Furthermore, what is perhaps Law's most powerful attack is his 'Gamma Knife.' A gamma Knife is a form of radio surgery to treat brain tumors, however Law uses it in an offensive manner: he gathers energy and shapes it into a short blade which he then plunges into his enemies internal organs for to inflict fatal damage (Doflamingo would have died if not for his ability to stitch his organs back together)- The damages to the terrain within it are permanently altered and remain so long after the power has been diffused. The circles which form in his hands acts as an indicator to when he is activating his ROOM space as shown when he and Kid were fighting the Pacifista, or when Law fought against Smoker and his marines at Punk Hazard. While his territory is active law can accomplish other feats as well, including scanning the area similar to an X-ray, swap people's minds and bodies completely and indefinitely until canceled out - but still needing the proper proximity to and between hosts to reverse his doings, even boasting attacks and abilities operating without the necessity of his ROOM. Such as the removal of hearts from individual bodies converting them into cubic containers making them vulnerable to harm; a critical skill as any unprotected vital organ (E.I. the human heart) can cause extreme pain when tampered with or instant death if severely damaged. The second is a static shock like burst of energy applied when both hands are pressed together against an adversary knocking them out near instantly. He as the usual Devil Fruit users weakness of being unable to swim. Besides the standard faults, his DF power requires a lot of concentration and focus on his part to "operate" a draw back to his power is the fact that constant use of the Room Field drains his stamina with each conjuring, this makes both him and the effectiveness of the space's influence weaker with every usage. Law has little patience for people he sees as small minded; when Luffy cared more about the fact that Law had a talking bear as a crew mate then the thousands of Marines outside, he became angry, however he, like most people Luffy is affiliated with is drawn to Luffy and respects him after the Dressrosa arc.

Physical Abilities

The young supernova has been extensively trained by the Donquixote family's best martial artist, Lao G since the age of 10. His hand to hand skill was good enough to briefly go blow for blow against Doflamingo on top the palace plaza.

Law has vast superhuman strength easily exceeding the capacity to lift 100 tons. He has been strong enough to block and parry attacks from Smoker, who is strong enough to destroy boulders and overpower Monkey D. Luffy before the two year time-skip.

He has also casually punched through rock, punched Doflamingo hard enough to create shock waves as well as physically hold his own for a short time against the Warlord on top of the plaza in Dressrosa.

Law can also augment his striking power considerably with Busohoku Haki coating his limbs.

Trafalgar's perceptions, combat speed and travel speed (in short bursts) are high hypersonic based on his feats. He has calmly reacted to a falling meteorite from near point blank range and cut it in half and it should be noted these meteors have a faster velocity compared to real life, as Issho drags them down with gravity for attacks in combat.

Medical Expertise

He has earned the nickname "Surgeon of Death" due to his surgical skills in addition to his formidable combat abilities. He appears to be considerably skilled as a doctor, as he was able to treat Luffy and Jinbei right after both of them barely escaped a murderous Akainu that left them on the brink of death. The mere fact that he was able to stabilize Jinbe's condition strongly hints that Law's medical expertise is not limited to human anatomy alone (though human and fishmen share the same blood, so it is possible that they have similar anatomies). He later volunteers to find a cure for the children's condition at Punk Hazard, implying that he is also versed in pharmacology. The fact he was able to cure the children of Caesar's deadly NHC10 drug, though not completely, is a noteworthy feat, something Chopper was even amazed by.

Devil Fruit

Law is the user of a Devil Fruit called the Ope Ope no Mi which allows him to create a spherical territory of light blue aura. In this territory, he is capable of separating and spatially displacing anything and everything inside (including himself), referred to as that he can "operate" on anything within the spherical "operating room". Easily among the most versatile Devil Fruits around, with his powers, Law is easily capable of causing mass havoc within the area he controls. He can also use it for teleportation purposes. He has also demonstrated being able to apply his ability for medical purposes, as seen when he cured the giant children from their addiction brought by Caesar's drugs.

Law appears to have mastered his power to such a great extent, that he can even cut through someone who completely imbued their body in Haki.

The weakness of the technique seems to be the concentration required to use it; Law must gesture with his hands to centralize the effects upon its victims, which can allow an opening for a fast enough opponent, such as Vergo. His abilities also depletes his strength the more he uses them. The full extent of this ability remains unknown at this time. Other than that, he has the same standard weaknesses as all Devil Fruit users.


Trafalgar Law was born in North Blue to wealthy parents in the 'White City' of Flevance. He had a younger sister called Lami and the young man studied hard to follow in his Father's footsteps to become a doctor. Flevance was a prosperous nation mainly due to it being home to Amber Lead, an expensive mineral that was mined there. However, unbeknownst to the people of Flevance, Amber Lead was a poisonous substance, symptoms include white blotches appearing on the skin and drowsiness leading to eventual death. The World Government knew of Amber Lead poisoning but did not notify the citizens of the White City because they saw how much money was being made trading it.

Unfortunately, soon Flevance saw a large majority of their population falling victim to Amber Lead poisoning, including Law's sister who rapidly entered an advanced stage of the disease. What made things worse was the fact that no doctor could cure or treat the disease, even Law's father-the best doctor in the country, couldn't do anything to stop Amber Lead poisoning.

Neighboring countries feared that the disease was contagious (It wasn't) and started to panic so the World Government deployed Marines to Flevance to massacre the diseased.

Law's sister was in hospital and refused a Nun's offer to sneak him along with other children, including his class mates, off the island. Law couldn't bring himself to leave his sister. The Marines killed the Nun and Law's classmates, shot Law's parents and burned down the hospital where Law's sister was. Law then suffered a mental break down, crying uncontrollably.

But he still managed to evade capture by hiding under a pile of dead bodies the Marines were stacking outside of the country's walls.

Law entire nature changed dramatically from this tragedy: he became cruel and nihilistic, wanting only to kill as many people as he could before dying from Amber Lead poisoning.

Not too long after this event, Law arrived at Spider Miles, which was a port town the Donquixote pirates were temporarily staying in. He approached Donquixote Doflamingo with bombs strapped to his body and asked him to let him join his crew. He informed the pirate Captain that he only had three years left to live and wanted to inflict as much pain and suffering on others as he could. Doflamingo was curious to know if there were any survivors to which Law told him he didn't know. Doflamingo's younger brother, Corazon then entered the room and unceremoniously threw Law out the window where the young boy landed on junk metal. Law survived this and angrily demanded to know why it had happened. He was then told by the family that Corazon hated kids. But was warned that their was a stead fast rule in place which meant you couldn't harm a member of the family. Law swore his revenge on Corazon anyway and a few days later he stabbed him with a sword. Unfortunately he was seen by Buffalo, but Law managed to bribe him to not tell Doflamingo by buying him ice cream.

Law was paranoid that Buffalo would still tell Doflamingo so he attempted to flee but was caught by Jora and Machvise. They took him to Doflamingo in their dining room where Law noticed that Corazon didn't die from his stab wound. Doflamingo decided to welcome Law into the family and the Captain was informed by Corazon that his injury was by the hands of an enemy. Law reinforced the fact that he only had three years to live, to which Doflamingo replied by saying his Underworld business would lead him to the Ope Ope ni Mi Devil Fruit, the 'Ultimate Devil Fruit' said to be able to cure any disease. He told Law that if he found a way to survive longer than three years, he'd be awarded the position of the Heart seat in the family and become his right hand man in a decade.

For the next few years, Law accompanied the Donquixote pirates on various acts of piracy on multiple islands. During this time he was taught swordsmanship by Diamante, gunnery by Gladius and martial arts by Lao G.

Corazon, Doflamingo's younger brother, apparently hated kids booted Law out the window and into rubble, remembering this, Law promised to kill him later as revenge. At a meal, Law was informed of the family's blood-oath, where killing another member would result in torture and death, however Law didn't care as he went on to sneak up behind Corazon and stab him in the back.
