Never forget that I have both the powers and the authority to execute you all right now!
~ Warden Magellan

Magellan is the former warden of Impel Down, a maximum security prison run by the World Government, and the main antagonist of the Impel Down Arc of One Piece.

After his failure during the prison escape, he sought to commit suicide which only puts him in the hospital. He is known for eating poison lunches which usually causes him to have diarrhea for the majority of the day. Later he was demoted to vice-warden as his former position as warden was given to Hannyabal. After Donquixote Doflamingo reached Impel Down, Magellan was assigned to guard Doflamingo from a social threat that would come and kill the former Shichibukai.

He is voiced by Mitsuaki Hoshino in the Japanese version of the anime, and Jeremy Inman in the English dubbed version.


Magellan is dedicated to protecting Impel Down and shows pride in being a top prison guard. Unlike Shiliew who was very corrupt and cared little about the lives of the prisoners, Magellan cared about the prisoners safety. However, when the prisoners get out of hand, he would take it upon himself to kill them himself through his poison without any warning. Magellan, however, does not care about the conditions the prisoners are put through as they are tortured in every level of Impel Down.

While Magellan takes his job at Impel Down and takes any threats in it seriously, he was also willing to commit suicide for failing to uphold its reputation.

He is also shown to have a weak will as he fell for the charms of Boa Hancock.


As the former Warden of Impel Down here full authority over the prison as well as the personnel staff. After the time skip, he lost such privileges now that Hannyabal is the new warden and Magellan was demoted to Vice-Warden.

His threat level to the escape of Impel Down was vouched for by Bon Kurei who stated Magellan has been known to silence powerful prisoners. Even former Warlords of the Sea Crocodile and Jinbe worried about his arrival.

Emporio Ivankov noted with Shiliew, Magellan kept the prison on high alert and that Luffy and Bon Kurei would never been able face both him of them. However with the delay from his diarrhea, Shiliew was more dangerous.

He easily dispatched the Blackbeard Pirates but Shiliew noted this was because Teach underestimated Magellan's strength because in their later confrontation they easily defeated him.

Physical Abilities

He is very powerful, even without his devil fruit. This was seen when he was able to pin down Portgas D. Ace with only one arm while the young pirate was unable to move.

Magellan has proven himself to be very resilient, taking many blows from Luffy while he was in Gear Second, a notable feat as Gear Second has been known to break through even strong defenses. He also blocked a waxed covered strike with little issue.

However the former warden was not even remotely fazed and stood up without a problem. It was also said that he took a very severe bleeding from some of the Level 6 inmates and was only near death, which is notable because they have been known to be very powerful.

He was also immune from the boiling temperatures of Levels 3 and 4, as well as the sub-temperatures of Level 5.

Devil Fruit

Magellan ate the Paramecia-type Venom-Venom Fruit which allows him to secrete poison from his own body. With this, he uses this poison to create a huge monster known as the Hydra. Also, anyone who is coated in his poison will only have 24 hours to live as seen with Luffy (though he survives later on).

He is also immune to poison, which can't kill him; so he uses it as a spice on his food, since it tastes better to him. However, this comes at the drawback of giving him diarrhea; a natural bodily reaction to removing poisons from the body. Despite this Magellan kept doing so, limiting his active hours and increasing the possibility of dying from dehydration.


In his childhood, he ate the poison-poison fruit and became immune to poison. This was showing a flower that he had intended to died due to his new power.

Magellan has been a prison guard at Impel Down for many years prior to his debut in the Impel Down Arc. He was eventually promoted to Warden of the Prison. At some point, he confronted Head Jailer Shiliew who constantly abused his rank as he would use it to ruthlessly murder many prisoners for his own entertainment. Because of the volume of his offense, Magellan stripped Shiliew of his position as Head Jailer and placed him under arrest. They fought and Shiliew was defeated before he was locked up in level six of Impel Down to be executed for his actions.

Impel Down Arc

After the events at Sabaody Archipelago, Luffy learned that his brother has been sent to Impel Down and is awaiting execution at Marineford. While Luffy was going through each level to get to the level where Ace was at, Magellan learned of Straw Hat's infiltration. In level four, Magellan confronted Luffy and Bentham. He promptly defeated Luffy who was already exhausted from going through all the levels and gravely poisoned him in the process.

Magellan had Luffy sent to Level five for his imprisonment. After the incident, Magellan tries to get things back in order. Unknown to Magellan, Luffy had recovered from his fatal poisoning thanks to Emporio Ivankov. Magellan had his men escort Ace out of the facility but the Blackbeard Pirates had arrived at Impel Down with the intent on recruiting new members. He confronted the Blackbeard Pirates and poisoned them. Magellan tried to also halt all prisoners from exiting Impel Down. He later learned that Bentham has assisted in the prisoners escape by playing the role as an impersonator of Magellan. Infuriated by Bentham's action, Magellan was about to fight him. It is unknown exactly what occurred but Magellan failed to kill his foe. It is implied that he was confronted by Blackbeard Pirates who severely injured Magellan in revenge for poisoning them. Either way Magellan was said to have beaten to near death.

Post War Arc

After the events of Marineford, Magellan was taken to a hospital for his injuries and while in bed he took responsibility for all the mishaps that occurred with the prisoners escaping from the prison and was ready to die. Sengoku told the marines guarding him to prevent this because he was too extreme.


After the time skip, it was revealed that Magellan had been demoted an Hannyabal has usurped his position as warden.

Reverie Arc

He was assigned to guard Donquixote Doflamingo and remained out of sight as the Ex-Shichibukai talked to him from within his cell.



  • Magellan is one of few characters in the series not to be defeated by Luffy at all in battle.
    • During the first fight, Magellan defeated Luffy.
    • During the second fight, Magellan shifted to his most deadly poison that forced Luffy to retreat.
  • Magellan is the first character to have a devilish appearance with the second being Caesar Clown.
  • Because of his fight with Luffy, the latter has developed a strong resistance to poison.
