Dracule Mihawk in One Piece




Dracule Mihawk, better known as “Hawk Eyes” Mihawk is a pirate renowned as the “Strongest Swordsman in the World.” He was a former member of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. Mihawk is seen by Zoro as the greatest barrier to achieving his goal of being the strongest swordsman in the world due to his position and title.


In the past, Mihawk was referred to as the "Marine Hunter" and was thought to be Shanks, one of the Four Emperors' rivals. He lived in Kuraigana Island, where he also served as Roronoa Zoro's instructor for swordsmanship during the two-year time skip. The Cross Guild was founded by Mihawk, Crocodile, and Buggy of the Four Emperors, with Buggy serving as the organization's symbolic leader.

Mihawk’s Personality


Mihawk is a serious, calm, and contained man. He is rarely seen smiling and speaks only when necessary. Even when something unexpected occurs, he never shows emotions on the battlefield needlessly. He is not mean or ambitious because he is a notorious pirate, and his only ambition is to lose to a better swordsman.


Mihawk has a distinctive laugh, curiously having two sounds: "Wahhahhahha/Kukukuku," like many other characters. Mihawk has a passion for farming; he began cultivating the Kuraigana Island's war-torn landscape and persuaded even the Humandrills, usually afraid of him, to help him.


He demonstrates honor by acknowledging and respecting the swordsman's discipline. He even gave Roronoa Zoro the luxury of training under his guidance in appreciation for his commitment and selflessness. He also freely uses the title "Strongest Swordsman in the World'' with respect to himself, demonstrating his self-confidence. He takes great pleasure in his swordsmanship and sees a nick on the sword as a stain on his honor.


Mihawk is assured of his strength but keeps his feet on the ground. Despite his cynicism about other swordsmen's skills due to fighting so many weaker foes, he can still spot brilliance. In fact, after seeing Zoro's immense will and determination during their combat, he wants to see Zoro surpass him. Despite having grown bored of competing against weaker opponents, Mihawk expressed enthusiasm at the prospect of once more being pursued as a pirate after the abolition of the Seven Warlords system.


When carrying out his responsibilities as a Warlord of the Sea, Mihawk is picky and irrational, as seen by his history of being absent from Warlord summons and his preference for some pirates over others when choosing to chase and harass them. Mihawk can often come across as relatively abrupt and cold, although he generally displays passivity when interacting with others.


Mihawk is content to keep company with others despite spending the majority of his time alone. He is capable of compassion and concern even in the face of his cold-blooded behavior. Additionally, Mihawk shows interest in the targets of his attacks. As a result, Mihawk is very analytical about other people's skills and can spot their abilities.


Mihawk’s Appearance


Mihawk has black hair, a short beard, a mustache, and upward-pointing sideburns. He is a tall, muscular man with lean muscles. His oddly colored red eyes—yellow in the anime—resemble a hawk's eyes, which are the source of his moniker. Mihawk has the impression of a Spanish swordsman because of his elaborate black and crimson attire, including a crucifix pendant that covers a tiny knife.

He wears a long, open, black coat with red velvet inside and no shirt underneath, a wide-brimmed, black hat with a giant plume on top, and red, floral-patterned sleeves and a collar. He is dressed in white (light purple in the anime) trousers fastened by a decorative belt and tucked into disproportionately enormous boots for his leg size.


Mihawk's sword Yoru.


When not in use, Mihawk carries his sword Yoru on his back and wears a kogatana around his neck, which appears as a golden cross-shaped necklace and is a dagger that resembles its larger counterpart Yoru. After the time skip, Mihawk develops a few wrinkles around his eyes. When Gol D. Roger was executed twenty-four years ago, Mihawk didn't have a beard, didn't wear a cap, and his hair was messier and shorter. He was wearing what appeared to be a flower-patterned jacket and already had his crucifix pendant.


Mihawk’s Relationships


Friends

Shanks: In the past, Mihawk competed with Shanks, one of the most feared pirates in the world. But when Shanks lost his left arm, Mihawk lost interest in him. He continues to have a neutral, albeit friendly, relationship with Shanks and can find him if necessary. Despite having very different personalities, he and Shanks get along well.


Perona: Perona remained with Mihawk and Zoro in Kuraigana Island during the two year timeskip. She returned to Kuraigana and resides with Mihawk, indicating a good status between them, after following Zoro to the Sabaody Archipelago and returning to Thriller Bark to retrieve Kumashi's body. After the Seven Warlords system was dissolved, he was worried for Perona's safety. He advised her to leave the island for her own good.


Humandrills: The Humandrills, who originated on Kuraigana Island, are allies of Mihawk. After Mihawk began farming, the Humandrills were quickly persuaded and assisted Mihawk in his efforts.


Cross Guild

Together with Crocodile, Mihawk established the bounty-hunting business Cross Guild, employing Buggy as a mascot to deflect all negative attention from themselves. Due to their excellent performances at Karai Bari Island, when they sank the whole Marine fleet sent after Buggy, both men are highly regarded by Buggy's followers.


Enemies

Roronoa Zoro: He has a rivalry with Zoro now that he has defeated Shanks, and he is willing to wait as long as it takes for Zoro to grow strong enough to defeat him. When he served as Zoro's swordmaster during the two-year time gap, Mihawk was a strict instructor. He prevented Zoro from drinking until he fully mastered infusing his swords with Busoshoku Haki when teaching him how to use Haki.


Monkey D. Luffy: Mihawk senses and is aware of Luffy's potential. He tells himself during the battle at Marineford that Luffy possesses the most dangerous skill on the seas—the power to turn anyone in his vicinity into an ally, including former enemies. The fact that Luffy is the son of the world's most dangerous criminal surprised few people, but not him.


World Government: Mihawk was a Warlord of the Sea and an ally of the World Government. He doesn't give a damn about their objectives, though. Mihawk only appears obedient to the World Government when he travels to Marineford to battle Whitebeard. He became the government's enemy again after the Seven Warlords system was abolished, and the Marines wasted no time trying to capture him.


Krieg: Don Krieg was turned against by Mihawk, who wiped out his whole fleet as he tried to take over the Grand Line. For his part, Mihawk didn't even see Krieg as a danger.


Mihawk’s Abilities


Mihawk is one of the strongest pirates in the world, claiming to be the "Strongest Swordsman in the World" in name and deed. He acquired fame even before the Great Age of Pirates by stopping ever-more-powerful enemies until he had no worthy rivals left. He now holds the title of world's strongest swordmaster.

Mihawk's bounty was increased to 3,590,000,000 Berries when the Seven Warlords of the Sea were disbanded, one of the biggest bounties in the world that even surpasses two of the current Four Emperors: Monkey D. Luffy and Buggy, is a real tribute to his incredible strength. He used to go by the name "Marine Hunter."


In addition to his skills in battle, Mihawk is a skilled cook who has spent the last two years preparing meals for himself and Perona. He is shown in the anime using his swordsmanship to cut vegetables with fantastic speed and accuracy while cooking.


In addition to his exceptional physical power, Mihawk also has blade mastery. He used a single knife that he clutched in his one hand to stop Zoro, a great swordsman with substantial physical strength. Mihawk can jump and leap great heights and distances, showing his incredible agility. He also has exceptional reflexes.


Swordsmanship

Because of his unmatched sword proficiency, Mihawk is called the "Strongest Swordsman in the World". Even his former rival, Shanks, one of the Four Emperors of the Sea, cannot match his extensive command of the sword. He used a single knife to easily defeat the famed swordsman Zoro, known across East Blue.

Mihawk's swordsmanship is incredibly versatile; he can use the "Strong Blade" swordsmanship to produce powerful compressed air slashes that can destroy enormous ships and icebergs from great distances. He can use the "Gentle Blade" swordsmanship to deflect the course of bullets with expert and refined precision.


Zoro significantly improved during his two years of training with Mihawk, which is more than the dojo had taught him throughout the many years he had learned there, demonstrating Mihawk's skill as a teacher. Further demonstrating Mihawk's expertise in battle and fighting, Zoro acknowledged that he still lacks his swordsmanship ability even after training with Mihawk.


Weapons

Mihawk's primary weapon is the "Black Blade" Yoru, one of the 12 Supreme Blades. Yoru is a curved, single-edged, black blade in the form of a latin cross. Its golden metal crossguard is embellished with red cabochons (blue and green ones appear in the anime). The hilt is covered in bandages with a huge cabochon at the end. He only uses this blade when accepting challenges for his title; otherwise, his Kogatana is sufficient. He reserves its use for those with the courage to command Mihawk's respect or the strength to pose a threat.

Additionally, Kogatana, a cross-shaped knife, is a pendant that Mihawk keeps around his neck. He is shown using it as a tool for eating, but when coupled with his exceptional sword abilities, it transforms into a devastating weapon that can take down even a great swordsman during combat. It is the tiniest blade he owns.


Haki

Mihawk has mastery over using Haki. He has taught Zoro; thus he is also a persuasive instructor. He is incredibly skilled at Kenbunshoku Haki, and he is capable of using Busoshoku Haki. He demonstrated how to use this kind of Haki to Zoro so that he could shield his swords from harm.
