    Character Evolution

    Buggy's appearance has been through a few changes throughout the series. Although his clothing has never been changed, the design of his face-paint has underwent some modifications.

    First Appearance

    In his first appearance, he had two blue lines above both of his eyes and wore red lipstick. There were also crossbones going down the upper portion of his face, starting at the forehead and ending beneath his eyes.

    Second Appearance

    Buggy's look changed during later appearances. He retained his red lips, but instead of crossbones there was a greenish-blue cross in the middle of his forehead. He also had a crescent-like design beneath each of his eyes and a streak on the middle of his chin. The overall design resembled the shape of an anchor.

    Third Appearance

    When his face-paint changed again, the color of his lips became green, with a curvy line going down both sides of his face. Both eyes were encircled with green eyeliner, both sides of his head had two green dots, and there were four big green dots on the rim of his hat. The overall design resembled the shape of a paw-print.

    Fourth Appearance

    Afterwards, Buggy recovered his original look: red nose, red lips, and crossbones going down his face.

    • Capable fighter
    • High endurance and resilience
    • Adequate physical strength
    • Extraordinary luck
    • Formidable chemist
    • Power to separate his body parts and still control them. Since Buggy can do that when people cut off his body parts it doesn't matter and it won't effect him.
    • Good swordsman

    Buggy is a capable fighter, able to hold his ground during numerous battles with the Whitebeard Pirates. His Devil Fruit may have given him enhanced endurance and resilience, able to survive Muggy Ball explosions without any serious injuries. He is also adept in chemistry, capable of creating highly-explosive cannon balls. Buggy can lift heavy objects with one arm, proving to be stronger than an average human. In addition, he is extremely lucky, escaping life-threatening situations at the right moment and achieving victory from plain luck. Consumption of the Devil Fruit has given him the ability to split his body into separate pieces while maintaining control of them independent of each other. This makes him immune to slashing, cutting and cleaving attacks.


    • His arrogance and greed usually gets the best of him, preventing him from fighting at his fullest.
    • Buggy like everyone who has consumed a Devil Fruit cannot swim.
    • He cannot use a component part if it is restrained.
    • He may lose body parts if he lacks the direct eye sight to guide them back to him.
