Hīrōbites – Crocodile, the sand manipulator

Hīrōbites – Crocodile, the sand manipulator

Let’s celebrate Crocodile’s birthday

Crocodile’s debut was in Chapter 126 of the One Piece Manga and Episode 76 of the anime. If you are familiar with this antagonist you will know that he is the former president of the mysterious crime syndicate Baroque Works, a group of underworld bounty hunters, and he was the main villain of the Alabasta Saga Arc in One Piece. He was the first of Luffy’s enemies that defeated him completely; in fact, Crocodile is one of two enemies that defeated Luffy twice. He used to be one of the Shichibukai but was stripped of that title because of his attempt to take control of the desert kingdom Alabasta. The world government, for that crime, imprisoned him but thanks to Luffy he escaped from the prison Impel Down and went to Marineford to participate in the war.

Crocodile’s ability to become, generate and manipulate sand is due to the fact that he ate the Logia Devil Fruit, Suna Suna no Mi. He mastered his abilities to perfection and can turn into sand in an instant when attacked. His ability gives him the power to create huge sandstorms, making bladed weapons out of the sand and to create quicksand. He can suck all the moisture out of any living or non-living object by touching them with his right hand, it is an ability that can allow him to utterly destroy his surroundings, literally give them death by dehydration.
