Franky the Cyborg Shipwright

Franky the Cyborg Shipwright

Let’s meet Franky

In One Piece there is a strange, almost bohemian 36-year old cyborg shipwright named Franky that became the eighth member of the Strawhat Pirates. We met him in the Water7 Arc where Franky was the leader of Franky’s Boys, a group of ship dismantlers. Franky’s Boys were initially antagonists working against the Strawhat Pirates but circumstances forced them to become allies. Monkey D. Luffy took a shine to Franky and invited him into the pirate group but Franky refused.

Franky’s friends urged him to join, for they wanted Franky to reach for his dream, knowing that his current life is holding him back. Eventually, Franky joined the Strawhat Pirates to fulfill his dream if creating and riding a ship capable of conquering the oceans, a ship that is like none before, a ship capable of a journey to the ends of the world. He is the creator/designer and builder of the Strawhat Pirate’s current ship, the Thousand Sunny.

Franky is perhaps the most emotional member of the Strawhat Pirates. He weeps easily when hearing a sad tale, but he is known to act tough and to anger quickly. He is most well known for his flamboyant attitude. His likes to shout ‘SUPER’ when happy or excited or add it to his speech. He will defend the people he care about without hesitation and also makes friends pretty easily.

(Please note that in some media Franky’s name is spelled as ‘Frankie’.)
