|“||Well now, what have we here? Who is this little fellow whispering behind a rock because he looks like a Navy soldier? And, my goodness! What is this? You're weren't looking to crush our harmless party, were you? No... NO! That's not very civil at all! 'Cause if you were calling your friends for backup, that would not end well, seeing as they weren't invited. [...] That is good to hear—and I say that for your sake too, keeheeheehee! Because if your friends did show up, this grove will be covered in blood. Their blood... and your blood!||„|
|~ Caribou to the Marines Scout.|
Caribou is a recurring antagonist in One Piece. He is a homicidal pirate who enjoys killing Marines. He first appeared in the Return to Saboady Arc. After his own cover story arc, Caribou set aside his psychopathic tendencies for a more honorable mindset, and has even become an ally of the Straw Hat Pirates during the Wano Arc.
He is voiced by Masaki Terasoma in the original Japanese version of the anime, and Andrew Kasten in the FUNimation English dubbed version.
Caribou is very sadistic and violent. He is known well for being very violent like his brother, Coribou. He dislikes the Marines and sees them as hypocrites. He feels justified for murdering them and thinks that his god will atone him for his actions. Caribou is manipulative and sees his opportunity to kill anyone and benefit from them like Demaro Black's pirate crew and the Straw Hat Pirates.
When he was left stranded on the Straw Hat's ship, Caribou pleaded for his safety and to spare him despite his previous intentions to destroy them. Even after staying with the crew, he still had the desire to murder them. However, they tend to realize that they are lying to them when he acts openly suspicious. He is also a greedy man, as he saw an opportunity to benefit from getting a lot of money by selling the mermaids on the black market.
Despite his lack of morals, Caribou does have care for the woman who saved him on one of Kaido's islands. He was willing to protect her from some dangers such as a house fire and Kaido's men. He was willing to risk his life to protect her and keep the island under the inhabitant's control instead of Kaido's control.
Not much is known about Caribou's past but he was depressed when his grandmother passed away. She did tell him to always stay together and love one another. At some point, Caribou obtained the Numa Numa no Mi and formed a pirate crew by the name of the Caribou pirates. As a pirate, Caribou was responsible for killing many Marines and earned a bounty of 210,000,000 bellies.
Caribou first appeared on Sabaody Arc, he was planning on allying with Demaro Black's team. He spotted a Marine spying on them and stabbed him with a spear. He ordered his brother to bury him alive. Demaro began his speech about setting an example of Luffy for attacking him. He wanted Caribou make the captured Marine a hostage but the pirate ignored him. He also began attacking some of Demaro's crew members ruthlessly and ordered his men to bury them alive. As the Pacifista and Marines began storming the area and capturing the pirates, Caribou and his team manage to escape from the island.
They appeared underwater with the Straw Hat crew. Caribou wanted to kill them but his crew was overwhelmed by the Straw Hats and they were separated. Caribou was left stranded on the ship by himself with the Straw Hats and pleaded for his safety.
