Banshee of One Piece

Banshee was a member of the Spade pirate gang and was active there as a ship’s cook by necessity. After Whitebeard had defeated the gang, the complete crew was taken over by him.


Banshee is an older woman with long light hair. She wears a light-colored, short-sleeved blouse, a headscarf and dotted trousers that reach her knees. She is also wearing dark heeled shoes. At Port Chibaralta she was dressed as a mermaid.This information comes from One Piece novel A

Skills & Strength

Even though she served as cook aboard the Piece of Spadille, she can’t really cook very well. At least, the food didn’t taste good to any of the members. Her appearance, on the other hand, looks scary to Ace, similar to how straw hats often do with Nami. She fights with a gun.


Rise of the Spade Pirates

Nothing is known about Banshee’s life before the Spade pirate gang. She joined them on the first half of the Grand Line. Due to Ace’s rapid rise, bounty hunters and the Navy were always on their tail. After one such attack by bounty hunters, they spotted a naval fleet led by Isuka. A maneuver by Masked Deuce allowed them to escape, but Isuka swore to them that she would capture Ace one day. So she ended up chasing the pirates for the entire first half of the Grand Line, but was never able to apprehend them. After a three-day stay on Sabaody Archipelago to coat their ship, they dived to Fish-Man Island, but their destination was the New World, where Ace had it in for Whitebeard.

New World

In the New World, the Spade Pirates met up with Shanks and the Red Shirt Pirates because Ace wanted to thank him for Luffy. Bound together by Luffy, they then had a party.

Then, about three years ago, the Spade pirate gang docked at Kuri on Wano Country. The starving villagers including O-Tama overpowered them and stole their food. However, it turned out that Ace and his comrades had deliberately allowed themselves to be tied up in order to let the residents have their food. Alerted to Kaidou’s plight by the residents, they then went to Onigashima, where they met Yamato, but Kaidou was not there.

However, their goal was still Whitebeard and so they went into his territory, but they were first opposed by Jinbe, who wanted to prevent a fight with Whitebeard. After a five-day battle, Whitebeard then appeared in person and the Spade Pirates were defeated. They were taken to the Moby Dick.This information comes from One Piece novel A

While their captain did not really want to accept his defeat and always attacked Whitebeard, the members quickly arranged themselves aboard the Moby Dick. They lived by the code of earning their food. Eventually, even Ace got involved in earning his food and was given a job. On Port Chibaralta, they were to keep order since the chief Oliva did not follow Whitebeard’s guiding principles. Wallace, Banshee, Marshall D. Teach, and others accompanied him. Masked Deuce’s plan involved Banshee disguising herself as a mermaid, which would allow Ace to learn more about Oliva’s actions. Oliva instantly fell in love with her and Banshee played along. Once they learned enough, however, they went on the attack and won with ease. In doing so, they ended the slave trade on the island, among other things.

After several defeats, Ace finally accepted Whitebeard as his father and the Spade Pirates joined the Whitebeard Pirates.
