Captain Hina


Although featured with pink hair in the manga and pinkish-blonde hair in the Anime, originally Oda coloured her with golden blonde hair. She has dark brown eyes and always wears red lipstick, a dark pink suit with a white blouse underneath and dark brown boots. She puts on a pair of brown gloves for battle and wears a white, gold-trimmed marine coat over her shoulders when not in battle


She has received the nickname "Hina the Black Cage" (黒檻のヒナ Kuro-Ori no Hina) because of her Ori Ori no Mi (オリオリの実) ability, which allows her to form restraints on people by swiping her limbs through them. Hina has a tendency to speak in the third person, though this only seems to add to her attractiveness for her subordinates. It is usual for young children in Japan to refer to themselves by using their own name. This is seen as "cute". For her part, however, she coldly spurns any advances made towards her.


She is a long-time friend of Commodore Smoker, joining the Marines at the same time as him, and helping him getting out of situations where Smoker could have been fired.

She is usually followed around by her two admirers Jango and Fullbody. While she finds them a bother and coldly turns away all their efforts to win her affection (thinking of them somewhat as "dorks" more than anything), she still allows them to become her subordinates.

Abilities and Powers

Hina has eaten the Devil Fruit Ori Ori no Mi granting her the ability to let others pass through her body, in the process getting encaged in a ring of iron. She is also a skilled unarmed combatant, being able to best Mr 2 Bon Kurei in a one-on-one fight


Aside from being a tough Marine and a Devil Fruit user, Hina also has at her disposal the Black Cage Corps. So far only "Black Cage Corps: Black Spear Squadron" has been seen.

Past Story

Years ago, she was at the Marine academy training alongside Smoker. While she was a shining example student, Smoker was a troublemaker and Hina had to bail him out on several occasions.

Present Story

Hina is first seen in Jango's mini-series, when Jango and Fullbody spot her and become her followers. Hina is formally introduced during the attack on the Straw Hat Pirates at Arabasta as they try to leave. She is forced out of formation by Mr. 2 using his Mane Mane no Mi powers to trick her. Later she has no other choice but to give up chasing them after Luffy threw the spears the "Black Cage Corps: Black spear Squadron" had fired at them back in their direction, damaging the ships much to Hina's annoyance.

She is last seen in the Miss Goldenweek's "Operation: Meet Baroque Works" mini-series capturing Miss Valentine. She was once again tricked by Mr. 2's Mane Mane no mi powers when he disguised himself this time as Mr. 3.
