One Piece: Who’s who in the Netflix show

The world of One Piece is coming to Netflix as a live-action adaptation of the much-loved manga. We recently got our first look at some of the series’ extended cast, along with concept art and show set. From Monkey D. Luffy to Red Hair, Alvida and beyond, the cast of the show appears to be huge.

So, whether you’re an established fan or just discovering One Piece for the first time, here’s everything you need to know about the Netflix show’s cast and characters.

The cast of One Piece from Netflix

Inaki Godoy plays Monkey D. Luffy, showing a wide range of excitement and energy in the behind-the-scenes footage that Netflix has released. For newcomers to the series, Luffy’s journey begins after he is accidentally turned into a rubber man by eating a magical devil fruit, granting him the power to stretch his body but cursing him with the inability to swim. in which we all found ourselves inside, I’m sure). He is a powerful fighter with an insatiable appetite for meat and a dream of someday becoming the pirate king.

Luffy’s friend and mentor, Red-Haired Shanks, is played by Peter Gadiot of Showtime’s Yellowjackets. While filming behind the scenes, we were offered a brief glimpse of his ship, the Red Force. Shanks is a legendary pirate captain, but known simply as Red Hair by his friends.

Ilia Isorelys Paulino plays Luffy’s first true antagonist, the pirate captain Alvida. In the original manga, she undergoes a notable visual transformation when the crew reaches Loguetown, the final port before the real adventure begins on the ocean route known as the Grand Line. It will be interesting to see if future episodes reformulate the role or some changes will be made to deviate from the source material. (And we’re just speculating, but there’s a chance the crew’s visit to Loguetown will be skipped entirely as casting for the Smoker character, who makes his first appearance there, has yet to be announced.)

Alvida’s ship, the Miss Love Duck, can be seen in great detail in the behind-the-scenes footage and is likely the setting for at least one early episode. In the manga and anime, Luffy first meets his friend Koby in Love Duck. Koby is portrayed in this series by Morgan Davies. The character doesn’t stay long in the manga, but plays a much bigger role in the series later on. Hopefully the show will last for a few seasons, so eventually we can see where Koby’s story goes.

The first real member of Luffy’s crew we meet is the legendary pirate hunter Roronoa Zoro, armed with three swords, played by the Japanese actor Mackenyu. The actor has previously embodied characters from other shonen hits such as JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Tokyo Ghoul, and Rurouni Kenshin, among many others.

Roronoa Zoro will face Aidan Scott, who plays the brat and spoiled Helmeppo, another character with an initially small part but whose influence grows in the future. Helmeppo’s father, the ax-handed Captain Morgan, is played by Langley Kirkwood in his second screen comic role after playing Judge Lex in 2012’s Dredd.
