Not all the One Piece characters are tall. But the ones that are are freakin’ huge.

In the image below, which has circulated online in Japan for a while and recently popped up again, we can see a handful of One Piece characters compared to a sumo wrestler, an elephant, a giraffe, and even pole vaulting.


Boa Hancock, for instance, is 191cm (6’3”) and Dracule Mihawk is 198cm (6’6”). Both are pretty short compared to Crocodile, who clocks in at 253cm (8’3”) and Jinbe, who measures 301cm (9’8”).

Even those characters are’t the tallest in One Piece. Donquixote Doflamingo is 305 cm (10’0”) tall, Kuma is 686cm (22’6”) tall, and Gekko Moriah is 692cm (22’7”) tall.

Glad to see all these characters are able to find clothes that fit!
