Sir Crocodile smokes a cigar and broods in a stunning One Piece cosplay.

Posted on Reddit by Akira, the Desert King costumes sees the former Warlord of the Sea leaning pensively against a tree with his golden hook propped up against his knee. The talented fan previously shared their take on another popular One Piece villain, Donquixote Doflamingo, in a cosplay that exudes pure arrogance and swagger.


About One Piece's Sir Crocodile

Sir Crocodile, initially introduced as the main antagonist during the Arabasta Saga in One Piece, poses a significant threat to Monkey D. Luffy and the Straw Hat crew, nearly causing the demise of the future Pirate King. However, he surprisingly becomes a major ally of Luffy during the "Impel Down" and "Marineford" arcs. In the most recent developments of One Piece's story, Sir Crocodile has joined forces with Dracule Mihawk and Buggy the Clown to form Cross Guild, a new pirate organization that fans speculate will recruit the remaining former Warlords.

Another intriguing aspect of Sir Crocodile's character revolves around a popular fan theory within the One Piece community. Many individuals believe that the Desert King is not only a transgender man but also the biological parent of Luffy, giving birth to the adventurous and food-loving pirate. Supporters of this theory point to various connections between Sir Crocodile and Emporio Ivankov, the leader of the Okama Kingdom, as well as Sir Crocodile's actions during the Summit War. While neither aspect of this theory has been definitively confirmed, the introduction of Sir Crocodile's Seraph-counterpart in Chapter 1086, "The Five Elders," may shed light on the character's transgender status.

One Piece, created by Eiichiro Oda, has been serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump since 1997 and currently holds the record as the best-selling manga of all time, with over 516 million copies in circulation worldwide. The series embraces gender diversity and inclusivity, featuring characters like the transgender swordswoman Kikunojo and the flamboyant Bon Clay, also known as Bentham the Wild.

Fans of One Piece have much to look forward to beyond fan-made content such as cosplay and theories. The annual celebration known as One Piece Day will occur in Tokyo and online on July 21 and 22, featuring a special screening of Film Red and an exciting surprise announcement. Additionally, Netflix's live-action adaptation of One Piece is set to debut in August, creating further anticipation among fans.
