One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 Roster Expands with Warlords and Royalty

Three Warlords of the Sea and one miraculous queen make their way to the ever-growing pirate musou roster.

It's Friday, and that means more One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 roster additions. This time around, we've got three of the seven Warlords of the Sea, plus some royalty making their way to the pirate musou spinoff.

Boa Hancock

First up is Boa Hancock, the Amazon Lily and Empress of the Isle of Women. Boa draws her power from the Love-Love Fruit, which, among other things, gives her the ability to change those with impure hearts to stone.

Her powers make Boa a versatile fighter. She can use Heart skills to attack enemies at a distance. Up close, Boa makes use of powerful kick attacks. Enemies Boa petrifies also receive extra damage.


Buggy is another Warlord of the Sea, eater of the Chop-Chop Fruit (hence the knives). He's head of a pirate mercenary organization offering pirates for hire, but he's also known as "The Genius Jester." Despite the title, he's rather self-conscious about his nose.

Buggy's Chop-Chop powers let him detach his hands and independently attack enemies with them, before ending things with the Chop-Chop Buzzsaw special move.

Dracule Mihawk

Mihawk is another Warlord of the Sea, regarded as the strongest swordsman around. He once completely destroyed a ship from the inside out just because he was bored.

Mihawk is a power character, pulling off non-stop attacks with his dreaded black blade.

Emporio Ivankov

Ivankov is queen of the Kamabakka Queendom on Peachy Island, known as the Miracle Person for his role in liberating countries and saving people across the world.

Ivankov ate the Horm-Horm Fruit and can manipulate people's hormones, debilitating them from the inside. That, combined with his mastery of New Kama Karate, make him a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.


That's it for this week's character additions. If you're just now catching up, we've got plenty more new One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 character news for you, including navy admirals and an eclectic collection of other fighters.

It might seem overwhelming with all these characters, but it's good fuel for the exclusive online content available with Pirate Warriors 4 when it launches on March 27 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

We might not have chowed down on News-News Fruit, but we'll be keeping our eyes on this one nonetheless. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 news as it develops.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
