In One Piece, there are a few free-thinking Marines who, for various reasons, would have been better-suited sailing under their own Jolly Roger.

While Monkey D. Luffy's journey to becoming King of the Pirates is undoubtedly the primary launch of One Piece, the constant struggle between the show's Marines and pirates takes a close second place. With over 1,000 total episodes and counting, there has been plenty of opportunity for author Eiichiro Oda to introduce fans to individuals belonging to both parties.

One Piece's original trilogy of Marine Admirals — Akainu, Aokiji, and Kizaru — each embody a different approach to their positions.

Assessing the headspace of the Pika Pika no Mi-user is a bit difficult, as One Piece hasn't provided much insight into his character's goals or motivations. However, if what he desires is to simply act on orders, he could have easily earned a spot as a top-tier commander for one of the Yonko found across the Grand Line.
