The Straw Hat Pirates’ powerful archaeologist, Nico Robin, shows off her unique Devil Fruit abilities in a stunning post-time skip One Piece cosplay.
Nico Robin and her Hana Hana no Mi Devil Fruit come to life in a stunning One Piece cosplay.
Created and uploaded on Reddit by SkylineStars, the Devil Child costume recreates the Straw Hat Pirates’ archaeologist’s look from after the story’s two-year time skip. Multiple arms spring forth from the cosplayer’s shoulders and sides, reflecting Robin’s powerful ability to manifest additional limbs. SkylineStars has also crafted equally impressive cosplay for other popular anime icons like Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop and Ryūko Matoi from Kill la Kill.
Robin isn’t the only character from Eiichiro Oda’s masterpiece that has recently inspired the imaginations of master costume makers; in fact, the archaeologist’s former boss, Sir Crocodile, is a common focus of fan-made content. For example, fellow Reddit user Akira shared their broody take on the Desert King, and another fan posted a cosplay of the former Warlord of the Sea with the title “Crocodile aka Luffy’s Mom.” The title is a reference to a prominent fan theory that asserts that not only is the Desert King a transgender man but also the other biological parent of One Piece‘s battle-and-food-obsessed protagonist, Monkey D. Luffy.

There have been other exciting developments for the One Piece franchise beyond instances of incredible cosplay. Notably, the English dub of Toei Animation’s anime adaptation has finally arrived at Crunchyroll in the United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The first batch of episodes hit the streaming platform on July 5 and the rest will be rolled out in waves. Eventually, Crunchyroll will have all the dubbed episodes from the East Blue Saga to the “Wano Country” arc.
Furthermore, Netflix’s live-action version of One Piece will make its debut at the end of August. The company has dumped an astonishing amount of money into the show’s production as each episode has a budget of $18 million. According to Jacob Romero Gibson, the actor who portrays Usopp, the money has been well spent; he praised the project’s special effects team in a promotional interview.
