Sanji – Figuarts Zero – Diable Jambe Premier Haché
If you are a fanatikal One Piece follower then Sanji is no stranger to you. He is a pirate and the cook of the Straw Hat Pirates. He is known as ‘Black Leg’ Sanji and was born under the name Vinsmoke Sanji. He is the former sous Chef of Baratie, a restaurant on the ocean, a prince of the Germa Kingdom! He is the fifth member of Luffy’s crew, the fourth member to join. Born in North Blue, he was the first Straw Hat member not to originate from East Blue. As with all Straw Hat Pirates he has a dream: He wants to find the legendary All Blue, a piece of the ocean where East Blue, West Blue, North Blue and South Blue meet, a place that is a chef’s paradise because of the ingredients you can catch there. He also has a bounty of 77,000,000 Beli on his head, only valid if Sanji is captured alive, due to his father’s request.
He is one of the top three fighters of the Straw Hat Crew, the other two being Luffy and Zoro. Sanji also is the only member that does not use weapons or devil fruit abilities in combat; he rather relies on the martial arts combat style that centre on his leg. Even if he was trained in Martial arts as a prince of the Germa Kingdom, his fighting technique he learned under the tutelage of his mentor Zeff, the head chef and owner of Baratie.
He has incredible physical strength, enough to haul a dead Tyrannosaurus Rex through the Jungle and back to the Merry (Little Garden), he has immense endurance, almost superhuman speed, agility and reflexes. His speed rivals Chopper’s Jump Point and Luffy’s Second Gear.
The true gem of his abilities is his ‘Black Leg Style’ martial arts. With his legs and feet able to smash boulders and defeat enemies larger than himself he is someone most people would not want to take on. In the Enies Lobby Arc, he revealed a new ability, which is the focus of today’s figurine. He revealed the Diable Jambe, which is the power to heat his lower legs to a temperature so high that they glow bright red, by spinning rapidly I place, and this causes his attack to be a great deal more powerful. Diable means Devil in French, definitely proving in the name that Sanji has one hell of a kick.
