The Straw Hats help Zenny out, hoping to make his last days good ones; they learn about Zenny's past as a money lender, and his dream of becoming a pirate. But Zoro realizes that Zenny has outlived Chopper's predictions and so the straw hats decide that, after helping him finish his pirate ship, they will leave the island.
Drum's number one doctor, also called \"Witch\". Is a lively old woman who lives in the royal castle. She adopted Chopper after Hiriluk's demise and taught him her medical knowledge. Ax-Crazy: The lengths she'll go to hurt you if you anger her are insane. Berserk Button: You better not call her \"old\", unless you want to get kicked across the room. The Bus Came Back: After a long absence from the main story, she reappears in the Whole Cake Island arc as Dalton is heading to the Reverie; she joins as his doctor, much to his shock. Butter Face: A Running Gag with her is that upon meeting her, people are often stunned by how beautiful her body looks. Then they see her face. Catchphrase: \"Ya happy\" Cool Old Lady: She's a world class doctor, and regards Chopper like a son (not that you'd know it) Cool Shades: Often wears shades in her cooler moments. Could Say It, But...: Her policy is that her patients are only allowed to leave after they have made a full recovery. After the Straw Hats have saved the island from Wapol and Nami's illness was on the mend though not fully cured, she continues to refuse to let Nami leave but explains that she now has to go take care of something and will be leaving the door unlocked. Dr. Jerk: God help you if you try to defy her medical orders. It's mostly in the interest of her patients. Mostly. Good is Not Nice: She's a genuinely terrific doctor and she ultimately is there to make sure her patients get better. But when gives medical orders, they are orders. Hammerspace: Where she gets the stuff she can chuck at people from. She can even throw chickens at them! Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Essentially this. She's genuinely interested in helping people, and willingly took on Chopper as a student when Hiriluk (whom she otherwise regarded as a quack) died. She cries when he leaves (in between chucking battleaxes at him) and is pleased to know he's doing well when he gets a wanted poster (though she hopes the 50 Beli is a mistake) Long-Lived: She's over a hundred years old. Never Mess with Granny: She may be an old woman but that doesn't stop her from going medieval on your ass if you piss her off. Non Action Girl: Invoked by herself. While she is more then capable of fighting herself, during the fight against Wapol's goons she states that she'll take part to the fight only if they need her help, which they ultimately don't. Ms. Exposition: Subverted. She was the first person in the series to mention the mysterious \"Will of D\", but she never elaborated it. Played straight in regards to Chopper's backstory, as she explains it to Nami and by extension the audience. Older Than They Look: She's actually 139 (141 after timeskip) years young. Parental Substitute: Kureha is the closest thing Chopper has to a mother figure. Running Gag: She often asks people if they want to know the secret for her age and young looks. Nobody is interested. More like interrupting any question as if THAT is what they wanted to ask. They quickly correct her, apparently fearing the answer. Another one is people mistaking her for a young woman until they see her Butter Face. Silver Fox: Despite being more than a century old, she's does not look all that bad except maybe the Butter Face. So Proud of You: Done very subtly. Her shirt when she shows up at Reverie has Chopper's bounty printed on it. Tap on the Head: Her preferred method of anesthesia: have Chopper give the patient a concussion. Tsundere: She cries when Chopper leaves the castle (after chasing him with knives and all, mind you). What the Hell, Hero: She scolds Chopper after his first use of Monster Point, calling him out on the destruction he wrought and saying that it is his responsibility as an aspiring doctor to be careful.
The leader, now king, of Drum Island. He was once a guard under Wapol and regretted every minute of it. He has eaten the Ox-Ox Fruit (Ushi Ushi no Mi) Model: Bison. The Atoner: He hated working under Wapol, and made sure to make up for it however possible, even before becoming King. The Beastmaster: After the Time Skip, it's shown in a cover story that he uses the Lapahns as troops, so he's definitely developing shades of this. Brought Down to Normal: For some reason, Movie 9 didn't include his Devil Fruit. The Bus Came Back: After a long absence from the main story, he cameos at the start of the Whole Cake Island arc as he and several other kings and royal families make their way to the Reverie, and makes a full return in the Reverie Arc itself. Commonality Connection: Rebecca, Shirahoshi, and the Tontatta dwarves are quick to bond with him over their shared friendship with Luffy. Elective Monarchy: After the Drum Kingdom is remade into the Sakura Kingdom, Dalton is elected as king, rather than being born into it like most royalty in the series. The Good King: Justified. In contrast to Wapol, Dalton cares for his people and wants the best for Drum, for this reason he's elected as the king for the newly-made Sakura Kingdom. Heroic Build: Tall and bulky, especially considering how Muscles Are Meaningless in this series. Heroic Self-Deprecation: He considers himself something of a failure over how long it took him to oppose Wapol and his lack of success when he does. The people of Drum, on the other hand, elect him king of the new Sakura Kingdom. Improbable Weapon User: A large spade. Manly Tears: Hiriluk's speech at Drum Castle brings him to tears as the doctor's words hammer home exactly how bad the country has become. Nice Guy: So nice, he'll tell you trivia about himself without you having to ask. Noble Top Enforcer: He's a noble warrior who served under Wapol's father and later Wapol. Wapol's cruelty led Dalton to defect and eventually lead the good people of the Drum Kingdom. Our Minotaurs Are Different: His hybrid-form from his bison devil fruit lends him an appearance like a minotaur. Overshadowed by Awesome: His Devil Fruit allows him to mop the floor with plain soldiers, but the flashback shows that Wapol's \"Ultimate Weapon\" form was too much for him. Royals Who Actually Do Something: To the point that he really prefers not being called a King at all. Shut Up, Hannibal!: In the Reverie Arc, Wapol tries taunting and insulting him again. Dalton's having none of it, and threateningly reminds his former king that they're now on equal footing. Taking the Bullet: He's willing to do this for the citizens of Drum, to the point that when they meet again Chess doesn't even try to fight him and just shoots at some ordinary people. Token Good Teammate: When Wapol was still king, he was only member of his troops who cared about the citizens of the kingdom.
A quack doctor from Drum island who plays a pivotal role in Chopper's life. Hiriluk spent a large portion of his life as a thief, until he was diagnosed with a terminal illness. While wandering in West Blue, he stumbled upon a grove of cherry trees he found incredibly beautiful, and was seemingly miraculously healed. Invigorated with a new belief that every disease can be cured, he returned to his home country with the mission to heal its ills by raising people's spirits; his ultimate goal is to cause a cherry tree blossom on the island, evoking the image of the cherry trees that healed him. Unfortunately, his lack of training means most of his medical interventions causes more harm than good, and you can't have a cherry tree blossom in a winter island... After finding Chopper abandoned by both humans and reindeer, Hiriluk brings him home and becomes his mentor and father figure. After his old disease returns, Chopper attempts to cure him with a mushroom soup, not knowing it's poisonous. Hiriluk realises this but drinks it anyway. He's then tricked by King Wapol into a lethal trap, but he decides to blow himself up with one of his own medicines after giving a last, touching speech that would spark an eventual revolution within the country. After Wapol is defeated, Kureha uses his final invention: a pink powder that turns the snow pink like cherry petals. This finally fulfils the old man's dreams of healing his birthplace, and the citizens of the Drum Kingdom are moved to renaming their country to \"Sakura Kingdom\" in celebration of their freedom. ...And That Little Boy Was Me: He explains his doctoring philosophy to Chopper through a familiar story about a life long thief who was diagnosed with an incurable terminal disease, and one day witnessed a cherry blossom bloom so beautiful it seemingly cured his disease on the spot. Of course, Dr. Kureha later reveals the criminal was Dr. Hiriluk and it didn't actually cure him, though it did seem to cause the disease to go into remission for decades. Back-Alley Doctor: The Drum Kingdom (later Sakura Kingdom) used to be renowned for having the best doctors in the entire One Piece World. Hiriluk is not among them and is a terrible doctor whose self-made medicines cause more harm than good, indeed, he's the only doctor to not have been captured by Wapol, besides Kureha. Justified as Hiriluk was a former theif with little to no medical training whatsoever. Better to Die than Be Killed: Rather than being killed by Chopper's poisonous mushroom (making Chopper guilty of his death) or being shot by Wapol's soldiers, Hiriluk drinks an explosive potion that blows him up. Break His Heart to Save Him: When Hiriluk's condition worsens and Kureha tells him he has only a few days left, he chases Chopper out of his home, to spare him from watching his surrogate father die of illness. Later, Chopper learns from Kureha about Hiriluk's condition and decides to help him. Chronic Hero Syndrome: Or Chronic Doctor Syndrome. After Wapol has forced all doctors to remain in his service, he continued to offer his services door-to-door. Unfortunately, since Hiriluk is a terrible doctor, no one wants any part of it. Comically Inept Healing: In One Piece fashion, his attempts to heal people with frog livers cause them to act like frogs. On a darker note, he would often give the wrong type of medicine that would either kill the person or have them fall victim to a weird side effect. Cool Old Guy: Hiruluk's starts Chopper's medical training and instills in him his generous and kind spirit, all in his older years. Doomed Moral Victor: Discussed in his last speech. While Wapol has Hiriluk at gunpoint, the latter comments that a man doesn't die from a terminal disease, eating a poisonous soup or a gunshot, but only when he's forgotten. Indeed, even after his death, Hiruluk's actions get the better over Wapol and his special powder heals the disease of the Drum Kingdom. Dying Moment of Awesome: After giving one of the most heartwarming speeches in the series, while held at gunpoint by a soldier squad, Hiriluk drinks an explosive potion so that he won't die from Chopper's poisonous Mushroom, and makes a toast to his surrogate son, thanking him for a wonderful life. Face Death with Dignity: After his legendary speech about \"a man never dies until he's forgotten\", Hiriluk smiles as he make a toast for his life and Chopper, and blows himself up. Foil: To Kureha. They're the last two doctors of the Drum kingdom after Wapol forces the remaining ones to live in his castle. Hiruluk is idealistic and altruistic but completely incompetent, while Kureha is highly skilled but cynical. They also serve as mentors for Chopper, with Hiriluk passing on his ideals, and Kureha passing on her medical skills. Heroic Suicide: After Chopper goes through a lot of trouble and danger to bring Hiriluk a mushroom to make a soup for his terminal illness, not knowing it's actually a poisonous one, Hiriluk recognizes the mushroom but eats the soup anyway rather than telling his surrogate son that all of his troubles were for nothing. The poisoned amiudake mushroom hastens his demise, then he falls into a trap after hearing that the 20 Doctors are ill and Hiriluk drinks his failed potion to die on his terms. The explosion completely obliterates him, leaving nothing behind but his hat, which blows down to Chopper and allows him to realize that Hiriluk had died. High Hopes, Zero Talent: Despite his passion for medicine, his treatments generally do more harm than good. His pink powder, however, does heal the hearts of the former Drum Kingdom's inhabitants, inspiring them to rename it the Sakura Kingdom. I Regret Nothing: Before drinking a potion that blows him up, Hiriluk says he lived a wonderful life and thanks Chopper for it. Immortality Through Memory: Right before committing his Heroic Suicide, Hiriluk declared his belief that a man only truly dies when they are forgotten, rather than when they are physically killed. Indeed, Hiriluk's ideals live in Chopper and his actions \"heal\" the Drum Kingdom years after his death, thanks to Kureha who realizes his dream. Improbable Hairstyle: His hair is shaped like a medical cross as a visual clue to him being a doctor. Interspecies Adoption: Hiriluk is a human and adopts Chopper (a reindeer with a Devil Fruit) as his son after finding him injured and treating his wounds. Lured Into a Trap: Shortly after eating Chopper's mushroom, Hiriluk hears that the twenty Doctors are ill and rushes to help. It's a lie made by Wapol to lure out the two rogue doctors, and Hiriluk ends up facing off against a squad of soldiers ready to execute him. However, Hiriluk laughs it off and claims that he's happy to find out that the doctors are actually fine. Mad Scientist: Unlike most examples, Hiriluk is actually benevolent, but he's a terrible doctor and his medicines make people even more sick. Most of his chemical experiments tend to end with a huge explosion, and he recycles them to make actual explosives. Made of Explodium: A lot of his failed concoctions tends to blow up and, while naturally useless as medicines, Hiriluk uses them as bombs. As his last act, Hiriluk prepares an explosive drink to blow himself up, so that he won't be killed by Chopper's poisonous mushroom or Wapol's soldiers. Mentor Occupational Hazard: Hiriluk is Chopper's first mentor and father figure, and blows himself up in front of Wapol. His death brings Chopper under Kureha's wing, where he learns all that he knows about medicine. Nudity Equals Honesty: When he finds an injured Chopper in the storm, Hiriluk tries to help him. Chopper doesn't trust him, so Hiriluk strips all his clothing in the freezing cold to show the reindeer that he has nothing to conceal, he only wants to help. Parental Substitute: Hiriluk is a father figure to Chopper, having adopted him after finding him in a blizzard, and teaches the reindeer his own moral code. Posthumous Character: Hiriluk is dead for years by the time the Straw Hats reach Drum Island, but his wishes are inherited by Chopper and motivate him to fight Wapol and eventually join the Straw Hats. Rasputinian Death: He was inflicted with a terminal illness that would kill him within days, then ate a soup made of amiudake mushroom, a lethal poison, but still lived long enough to blow himself up. Reformed Criminal: Hiriluk used to be a thief, until he got ill and was cured by a wonderful sight of cherry blossoms. Since that day, Hiriluk dedicated his life to healing people. Signature Laugh: Hiruluk's laugh is Eh eh eh!' Chopper later mimics his laugh. Unwanted Assistance: The people of the Drum Kingdom don't like his help as he usually makes their ailments worse. Vitriolic Best Buds: With Kureha. She regards him as a quack, but also give him medicine to prolong his life and, after he dies, takes his special powder and Chopper under her wing. Your Days Are Numbered: Suffered from a terminal illness that returns shortly after adopting Chopper, and Kureha diagnoses him with a few days to live. Chopper learns of this and tries to heal it with a mushroom soup, not knowing the mushroom is poisonous. Hiriluk willingly eats the soup, further shortening his remaining time, to thank Chopper for his care. 59ce067264
