Donquixote Doflamingo, also known as "Heavenly Yaksha," is the captain of the Donquixote Pirates. He was the most essential underworld broker known by the alias "Joker" before imprisonment. He was a former member of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. He is a member of the Donquixote Family, a former World Noble, who lived in Mary Geoise before giving up their royal status.
Doflamingo encountered Vergo, Trebol, Pica, and Diamante and demonstrated his ability with Haoshoku Haki by dislodging a mob that attempted to lynch him. Trebol was so moved that he thought Doflamingo had been hand-picked by god that he gave him the Ito Ito no Mi and a gun, enabling Doflamingo to kill anybody he wanted as revenge. Vergo, Trebol, Pica, and Diamante chose Doflamingo as their leader after they returned to North Blue from Mary Geoise and vowed to help him become the next Pirate King and never allow anything to get in his way.
Eight years before the commencement of the story, Doflamingo succeeded Riku Doldo III as ruler of Dressrosa. He ruled Dressrosa with tyranny until he was deposed from his role as king and Warlord of the Sea following his defeat by Monkey D. Luffy during the climax of the Dressrosa Arc. He was then taken into custody by Admiral Fujitora along with most of his crew and ultimately imprisoned at Impel Down.

Doflamingo is a very scornful, proud, and carefree individual. He appears to enjoy using theatrical language and tends to pose dramatically when making statements. He also seems to have very little fear of other people. However, he does not give in to prejudice from such baseless stories. He nonetheless resents it when others take rumors seriously and talk of them as truths.
Doflamingo has an inherent phobia for those with the middle initial "D" in their names, knowing that such people are the Celestial Dragon's natural enemies. Doflamingo is a former Celestial Dragon who remains a zealot regarding their related rights and history.
He is also inclined to perch himself in odd places, such as on the backs of chairs, tables, barrels, and even a pile of bodies in the center of a battle zone or atop a wall. In most circumstances, he is also entirely composed and level-headed. Doflamingo appears to adhere to the "might is right" proverb, claiming that only the powerful will be able to survive in the "New Age" and set the laws. He quickly loses interest in other things because he believes in this "New Age" movement.
He has a distinctive laugh, which is "Fuffuffuffu," or in characterized English, "Heh heh heh heh." However, unlike other antagonists in the series, Doflamingo's laughs still sound pretty normal.
Doflamingo is very self-assured and believes he can acquire and accomplish whatever he wants, even if the chances are against him because of his powers, heritage, and blackmailing of the World Government. He doesn't care who stands in his way or who he is up against because he is so confident in his Devil Fruit abilities. The veins in Doflamingo's head start to bulge when he gets angry. He frequently shoots his victims with a gun when he completely disregards them, as he did with his father, brother, and Law.
He enjoys playing nasty and brutal games with his adversaries and victims. Additionally, he has a rather murderous mentality. He also holds that all people, regardless of their personalities, have cruelty brought by the thrill of witnessing death and blood. Doflamingo also tends to lick his lips when anything that could result in bloodshed or when a chaotic situation is about to occur.
Doflamingo was completely fearless and doubtless before the time skip, even going so far as to steal the World Nobles' tributes to use them as leverage against the government. He hardly ever shows any other emotion than delight when something unexpected happens, regardless of who is affected. He rarely breaks out of his trademark smile. Doflamingo eventually lost control of Dressrosa and gave in to terror, hopelessness, and rage. He grew so irritated by everything that he decided to just laugh it off.
Reliving his early memories, which include being attacked by a mob at age 8 due to their hatred towards the Celestial Dragons, was the only genuine terror he expressed at the time. Doflamingo experienced agony and hunger for the first time in his life; as a result, even at 25, he had a nightmare about the suffering he had endured and awoke terrified and perspiring. He drank excessive amounts of alcohol to deal with it.
Doflamingo is highly proud of his flag and will allow people to sail under it, but he has high expectations of them and will not hesitate to get rid of them if they don't live up to them, seeing their weakness as a shame on his good name. He has little regard for those he perceives as weak, and he seeks to exclusively be associated with the strong, quickly shunning the weak. However, he appears to be interested in improving them if possible since he occasionally points out their shortcomings and offers them another chance to win his approval.
He has a strong sense of duty, loyalty, friendship, and compassion towards his long-standing subordinates. Additionally, he is far more understanding of his crewmates' mistakes. He can still be frustrated by his crew members' pranks despite his loyalty, compassion, duty, camaraderie, and devotion to them. He cares so much about his crew members that he refers to them as his true family. Though it appears that he genuinely cares about his new family, he won't think twice about ordering them to sacrifice any of them when he determines that it is necessary.
Doflamingo is an extremely tall man with a tan complexion who stands at 10'. He has light blond hair and is very lean and muscular. He normally wears luxurious attire. His brilliantly colored outfits, especially his light pink feather cloak, are in keeping with his animal theme—the flamingo.
Doflamingo wears a pair of tiny, curved, white sunglasses with crimson or purple lenses that give the impression that they are his eyes. He also has an awkward, bow-legged waddle as he walks (though he does not always do so), which is another nod to the animal nature of his outfit. He wears a green belt, orange trousers with white stripes and a white shirt with red stripes. He also has a pair of fairly pointy black dress shoes.
Doflamingo originally wore a red shirt with black stripes, a purple belt, and black trousers with red stripes in the anime. His color scheme was changed to that of the manga version when he later returned during the events of Sabaody, with the exception of his glasses. He wears purple-tinted glasses in the anime (before the time skip) as opposed to orange-tinted ones in the manga. He frequently sparks a smile.
At age 10, he swapped his worn-out noble attire for a more straightforward but cleaner black shirt and white shorts. Doflamingo started to appear more dangerous after this. He ultimately adopted the look of a mob leader, sporting a black coat that resembled a cloak over a light lavender shirt with an open collar and bole-colored shorts. He changed his regular sunglasses for the signature pair he presently sports with spiral-shaped red lenses. His hair started to look spikey.
At 17, he had longer hair than he does now, two earrings in his left ear, and a pair of goggles on his forehead. Also, he wore sunglasses that looked much like the ones he does now, but with a different temple shape and his distinctive feathered mantle.
At 25 years old, he appeared to have misplaced the goggles but otherwise appeared to have kept his appearance; he was wearing a black dress shirt with a red tie and white trousers with a striking red design, with his trademark mantle covering it. He briefly wore a blood-red double-breasted suit with yellow-gold buttons when he was 28 years old, dress trousers, shoes, a pair of (dark green in the anime, black in the manga) gloves, and the sunglasses he is presently sporting.
Doflamingo's clothing is a little less decorated two years after the war; he wears a plain, open shirt with little, dark Jolly Rogers as cufflinks, a new belt and pink striped trousers. He nevertheless continues to wear formal shoes and his distinctive eyeglasses, which now have red rather than purple lenses. He wears his feathered coat over his shoulders instead of leaving his arms inside the sleeves after the timeskip, just like many high-ranking Marines and pirates. Additionally, he now has golden hoops on each ear. He donned a horizontally striped jail uniform following his defeat by Luffy.
Even as a youngster, Doflamingo wore sunglasses most of the time, albeit he had not yet developed his signature style. Doflamingo dressed in typical Celestial Dragon attire before leaving Mary Geoise, and his hair was styled similarly. His hair was changed to a bowl cut that was simply nice and tidy after the family left Mary Geoise. His outfit comprised basic, elegant pieces like a low-neck button-up shirt with black stripes and a frilly cravat.
Doflamingo is a powerful pirate who served as the captain of the Donquixote Pirates and was a former member of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. He had total control over the two thousand troops and eleven officers who made up his pirate crew. He participated in the New World's underworld brokering background (which included trafficking in drugs, weapons of mass destruction, slaves, and Devil Fruit). He was the most creative and powerful broker there was.
He also held the title of King of Dressrosa, giving him control over a kingdom. Doflamingo's kingship was revoked upon his defeat at the hands of Luffy. Anyone less than a World Noble would believe it impossible for Doflamingo to have fooled the entire globe into thinking he had resigned from the Seven Warlords, but since he was one, he had the freedom to act whenever he pleased on a global scale without worrying about the consequences.
He lost all the privileges when his father forcibly removed him from such a luxury lifestyle; however, he learned about the national treasure of Mary Geoise, which, when combined with the powers of the Ope Ope no Mi, could shake the very foundations of the world. He used this knowledge to threaten the Celestial Dragons when they failed to kill him, which allowed him to regain (to a limited extent) the privileges of a Celestial Dragon and mobilize CP0.
Ten years before the current plot, Doflamingo was able to extort the World Government by stealing monetary tributes intended for the World Nobles, giving him the title of Warlord. By that point, King Riku Doldo III had been sufficiently intimidated by him to try and collect a sizable sum of 10,000,000,000 Berries from the people of Dressrosa to avoid confronting him.
Aside from his outstanding combat abilities, Doflamingo was a notorious pirate and a Warlord with high authority. He and his operations served as a source of weapons for several countries at war. Many of them were forced to surrender after his loss and capture, which rendered them unable to feed themselves any longer. He was also known as Joker and the most powerful broker in the Underworld, working primarily with Kaidou of the Beasts, regarded as one of the Four Emperors. He had high authority over his crewmates and Bellamy Pirates to the point where they would be willing to die for him if necessary.
Additionally, Doflamingo was the proprietor of the once-famous Human Auctioning House at the Sabaody Archipelago, but he handed it to Disco after he grew disappointed with the slave trade and began to be more interested in the Summit War of Marineford, the SMILE business, and the New Age. The auction hall fell into ruin due to his abandoning it, highlighting the strength of his influence (and the repercussions of his absence). He appeared to have many contacts because he was able to get the reincarnated Mera Mera no Mi.
Doflamingo is incredibly strong physically, and he used this strength to create a shockwave that could swiftly destroy the three towers of Dressrosa's royal palace with a single swing. In addition, a vast portion of it collapsed by leaving the mountain he was deeply embedded in. His kicks have enough force to deflect blows from extremely powerful opponents.
Doflamingo has amazing reflexes, agility, and speed. He could jump over Oars Jr.'s enormous body and avoid most of the attacks from the younger Oars Jr. He moved quickly enough to escape unharmed through Crocodile's sandstorm. He is quick and can rapidly vanish from sight to dodge attacks.
Doflamingo has a massive amount of stamina, endurance, and pain tolerance. He had never been hurt or displayed signs of tiredness by any other character during a conflict over the length of the series up until the Dressrosa Arc. He endured the multiple tortures the mob put him through even as an 8-year-old who had just left the inner circle of the Celestial Dragons and was therefore still physically weak from being pampered. Instead of breaking in or pleading for help, he vowed to exact revenge. This refusal to submit to the suffering as Rosinante and Homing did is one of the reasons Rosinante views his brother as a monster.
Despite taking multiple strikes from Luffy, Doflamingo could still fight and even control his Haki and awakened Devil Fruit powers. Furthermore, despite being battered and hurt, Doflamingo exhibited very few signs of exhaustion and could take on dozens of strong gladiators and easily defeat them all. He also has a remarkable healing rate. Following his bloodstained fight with Luffy and Law, he rapidly recovered consciousness and was only left with a few bandages.
Doflamingo consumed the Ito Ito no Mi, a paramecia-type Devil Fruit that gives him the ability to produce and manipulate strings. His strings may cut, penetrate, block, bind, or batter his opponents because they are extremely strong and razor sharp. It is quite difficult to see the strings and steer clear of them because they are very thin, and some of them might even be invisible.
Doflamingo can easily slice off his opponent's body parts and disassemble weapons thanks to the fantastic cutting strength of the strings. He even could slice a massive asteroid into many pieces using his strings. Doflamingo can go as far as tearing an entire nation to ribbons, depending on how he uses his strength. He can also fire strings like bullets towards his opponent, giving them a powerful piercing ability.
He can make a thick rope by combining and compressing a lot of strings, which allows him to use blunt force in combat. He can also use strings to weave a solid defensive barrier that can stop heavy punches and flying debris in their tracks. Even though it is not considered true healing or regeneration, Doflamingo can use strings to repair his internal organs in an emergency to stop the worst consequences.
Doflamingo can tie strings to his opponents' bodies, allowing him to manipulate their movements with the flick of his fingertips. He mainly uses this power while he stands by and observes to force his allies to engage in battle (and sometimes even murder) against one another. His victims are entirely powerless due to their inability to fight off his puppeteering. He has shown that he can manage a large group of individuals at once.
By tying his threads to clouds, he is also able to fly. The only known restriction on his capacity to fly at this time is that he cannot use it in areas without clouds; in other words, if the sky is clear, he loses his power to fly.
Doflamingo has attained Devil Fruit Awakening, which allows him to turn inanimate objects in his environment into strings that he can control.
When Doflamingo was ten, Trebol gave him a flintlock pistol that was obsidian-black with opulent gold plating. Doflamingo used this pistol to kill his father and brother, indicating that it was obviously saved to use on those he greatly despised. Ten years ago, he was also seen wielding a sword when he came dangerously close to killing King Riku Doldo III.
Doflamingo can use all three types of Haki i.e. Haoshoku Haki, Kenbunshoku Haki, and Busoshoku Haki.
His Haoshoku Haki was awakened when he was just a child of around 10 years. He knocked out several people who were trying to lynch him and his family for their ancestry of being a World Noble.
He is skilled in psychological warfare, as he planned to use the Mera Mera no Mi as bait to sever Luffy and Law's alliance. Luffy entered the competition to attempt to win the fruit as soon as he learned that it was being given away as the main prize at the Corrida Colosseum. This demonstrates Doflamingo's excellent understanding of other individuals.
To set a trap for his enemies, he used his power to get the media to publish fake stories about his resignation from the Seven Warlords of the Sea.
Doflamingo demonstrated excellent strategic planning and adaptability, regaining control over Dressrosa when he turned everyone else against his opponents in exchange for prize money and the chance to survive.
Doflamingo also showed strong analytical abilities by recognizing the flaws in Law's Devil Fruit after seeing it multiple times and figuring out the advantages and abilities of Luffy's Gear 4 after it had been used against him.
Doflamingo has always despised his father after he decided to give up their World Nobles title and live with the commoners. After facing people’s rage and disgust against the Celestial Dragons, Doflamingo shot his father for subjecting their family to harsh living conditions. Doflamingo similarly despised and killed his younger brother Rosinante after finding out that he was secretly working with the Marines. He felt betrayed by both his father and brother.
Doflamingo had affection towards his mother, as seen when he brought her food after she fell sick, and grew concerned when her condition worsened. After she died, Doflamingo blamed his father for her death.
Doflamingo may be sadistically cruel and intolerant towards his enemies, but he has a genuine affection for the Donquixote Pirates, especially for the top officers, who have been his family since his birth clan sentenced him to a life of suffering. He would forgive any of them for any misgivings except betrayal.
The Donquixote Pirates, like the Straw Hat Pirates and the Big Mom Pirates, appear to have a vast and varied crew, in contrast to many crews that adhere to a specific theme, ranging from a young girl to old folks. Doflamingo is ready to overlook some of the members' personality flaws, such as Vergo's stupidity, Baby 5's incapacity to refuse any request, Trebol's tendency to come near people when speaking, and Diamante's repeated denial of flattery until it has been rejected.
When discreet, the officers may refer to Doflamingo as "Joker" or "Young Master" as a mark of respect. Like his father and brother, the executive officers Vergo, Diamante, Pica, and Trebol casually call him "Doffy".
Doflamingo takes pride in his flag. After Bellamy embarrassed it by losing to Monkey D. Luffy, he chastised him and fired the crew, saying that Bellamy is no longer needed under his rule. He gave Bellamy a second chance and formally enrolled him into the crew when he brought a golden pillar from Skypiea as a tribute. He even allowed him to advance to a high-ranking commander by winning the Corrida Colosseum.
Bellamy confronted Doflamingo about his treason while playing the "Bird Cage" game and was viciously attacked. Doflamingo brutally made fun of Bellamy's weakness, used him as a human shield against Luffy, and made his former lieutenant engage in battle with Luffy. Even after Bellamy had proven himself loyal, Doflamingo oppressed him and showed no mercy after Luffy had defeated him.
Caesar Clown was linked to Doflamingo, and Caesar wanted his permission before acting to avoid bringing attention to Punk Hazard. Still, Doflamingo mistrusted the scientist and had Monet spy on him. Due to Caesar's ability to manufacture the SAD, which the Warlord uses to generate the SMILE, Doflamingo greatly valued the disgraced scientist.
To prevent his supply of SAD from running out after Caesar's defeat, Doflamingo sent Buffalo and Baby 5 to rescue the scientist instead of firing him as he did with the Bellamy Pirates. He needed Caesar so badly that he deceived everyone into thinking he had resigned from the Seven Warlords of the Sea to lure Law into a trap and then capture the scientist.
As the king of Dressrosa, Doflamingo was respected and admired by all the citizens. However, he didn’t seem to care for them and overthrew King Riku and manipulated the citizens by portraying the former king as treacherous towards his nation. His actions of turning people into toys and wiping their memories further show his malice against the kingdom.
When Sugar passed out and her control over the kingdom was lost, her victims reverted to their previous states. They disclosed Doflamingo's true nature to the other residents. Doflamingo, having been exposed as a villain, used psychological tactics to subdue the crowd, regretting that he hadn't ruled them with tyranny from the start. In a cruel act, he forced everyone in Dressrosa to kill and hurt one another. He even remarked that he could always find another kingdom, demonstrating his lack of concern for the people of Dressrosa.
Disco: The Human Auctioning House at Grove 1 is run by Disco. After being shot, he dialed the shop's owner, Warlord Donquixote Doflamingo for assistance. Disco was informed by Doflamingo that he could have the store and never contact him again. Disco went poor and bankrupt after Doflamingo abandoned him.
Kaidou: Kaidou was once assisted by Doflamingo, who gave him SMILE Devil Fruits. Kaidou's immense influence and authority were why Doflamingo held Caesar in the highest regard.
Doflamingo once sided with the World Government, although he didn't give them much thought. To force the authorities to allow him to join right away, Doflamingo blackmailed them. Law also revealed that he is an underground broker, which the Government was unaware of. Doflamingo was finally apprehended after his defeat at Dressrosa. His Warlord status was revoked, and he was reduced to a common felon.
Doflamingo is a World Noble because he is a member of the Donquixote Family, descended from one of the twenty kings who established the World Government 800 years ago. Doflamingo lost all the benefits and wealth that came with his family's title as World Nobles when his father abandoned it. He swore to destroy the globe that they ruled over because they refused to reinstate him. Ironically, Doflamingo still holds on to his heritage and considers himself on par with or even better than the Celestial Dragons.
Trafalgar Law was formerly a subordinate of Doflamingo. Doflamingo's alter ego as the shady underworld broker "Joker" is known to Law. Doflamingo announced his goal to make Law his right-hand man in the future after recognizing his talent. He was also once seen by Doflamingo as his younger brother. Doflamingo's goal changed to using Law's newly discovered power to grant himself immortality after learning that the young Law had consumed the Ope Ope no Mi, even if that meant brainwashing Law into surrendering his life.
Doflamingo was shocked and even scared to learn that Law's name begins with the letter "D." Despite fiercely trying to hide his fear behind a false front, he grew more reckless to eliminate his natural enemy. Even when Doflamingo gave Law one last ultimatum, Law used it to make fun of him which made Doflamingo shoot the young pirate repeatedly in a rage.
At first, Doflamingo did not hold any animosity towards Luffy or his crew. However, it changed after the events in Punk Hazard when Luffy and Law aligned together and took Caesar Clown as a hostage.
Doflamingo, assisted by his disciples, prepared a trap for the Straw Hats at Dressrosa after "resigning" from the Warlords. He lured Luffy to the Corrida Colosseum using the Mera Mera no Mi, knowing he would not let anyone else have the fruit. Doflamingo did not take Luffy seriously when he first met him because he had easily defeated the pirate in their previous confrontation. He enjoyed using sneaky methods to incite Luffy, including manipulating Bellamy.
He approached their fight casually, believing Luffy was too weak to beat him. Doflamingo attempted to kill Luffy in their final encounter by using his most powerful offensive and defensive strategies, even going so far as to destroy what was left of Dressrosa. However, Luffy finally triumphed.
To take over as king of Dressrosa, Doflamingo devised a cunning scheme to eliminate the Riku Family by first making Riku Doldo III do a terrible act and turn him into a villain in the eyes of the populace. He also disgraced the entire Riku bloodline in the process. Doldo (as Ricky), who lost the Colosseum combat royale, professed his disgust for Doflamingo. Viola became a member of Doflamingo's crew to preserve her father's life. She urged Sanji to assist her in killing him, even though the crew revered and trusted her.
Later, Rebecca and Viola faced Doflamingo to buy Luffy sometime. Doflamingo, who had no pity for his former officer, immobilized them both and then gleefully forced Rebecca to assault Viola.
The Donquixote Family first started tormenting the Dwarves nine hundred years ago. They enslaved 500 dwarfs during the rule of Doflamingo and forced them to labor in Dressrosa's Dark Factory.
The Thunder Soldier served as the commander of the dwarves' Riku Royal Army, an anti-Doflamingo force. He also abducted and held the dwarf Princess Mansherry and tricked his abducted slaves into thinking that she was ill and that SMILEs were the only treatment. To overthrow Doflamingo, save their friends, and free Dressrosa from his oppressive tyranny, the dwarves ultimately allied with the Straw Hat Pirates.
Crocodile: Doflamingo and Crocodile appeared to be acquainted. Doflamingo offered a partnership even though Crocodile threatened to murder him for interfering with his business and making fun of him. He also understands his strength because, after learning of his defeat at Arabasta, Doflamingo didn't think Crocodile would be defeated by a Marine captain.
Bartholomew Kuma: Doflamingo seems to know Kuma because during the Paramount War, he gave Emporio Ivankov and Monkey D. Luffy crucial information concerning his life. He told them that Vegapunk had finished Kuma's last adjustments. Doflamingo acknowledged that he was unaware of the deal Kuma struck with the government and claimed to be unaware that Kuma was linked to the Revolutionaries.
