Master Chief Petty Officer Coby (コビー曹長 Kobī Sōchō?) is a Marine together with Helmeppo under Vice Admiral Garp. He was formerly a Cabin Boy for the Alvida Pirates until he was liberated by Monkey D. Luffy, and was one of the first people Luffy befriended on his travels. His current status is unknown.


In his first appearance, Coby was a small, timid, chubby boy with pink hair and round-frame glasses.

Due to the passage of time and Garp's training, Coby has grown thinner and taller, standing close to Luffy in height. He also has gained a cross-shaped scar above his right eye, presumably earned under Garp's heavy-handed tutelage. His hair has grown longer and shaggier since his growth spurt, but it has retained its pink color.

Coby wears standard-issue Marine jacket, pants, and neckerchief as well as a brightly patterned bandanna worn tied across his forehead. Coby's glasses are still present, but he has adopted the habit of wearing them pushed up on his forehead and has not been seen using them since his appearance in the Post-Enies Lobby Arc.

Coby's flashback

Coby getting on the wrong boat.

Coby had intended to board a ship for a fishing trip one day, but he found himself amid the dangerous crew of the pirate Alvida by mistake. To stay alive, he 'volunteered' to become a slave for this band of pirates, but secretly fostered hopes of escape and eventually joining the Marines.

Meeting LuffyEdit

Coby's fear of Alvida prevented him from leaving her crew on his own, but Luffy's arrival and triumph over the 'ugly old hag' (as Coby summoned the courage to call her) finally brought him hope.[2]

If I succeed, that's fine. If I die, that's fine also.
— Luffy's speech to Coby on death and fighting for ones dreams.

After helping Luffy and Zoro free a nearby Marine base from the grip of the tyrannical Axe-Hand Morgan, Coby was admitted into the Marines' ranks as a Chore Boy, alongside Morgan's disgraced son, Helmeppo.
