nihongo|Franky|フランキー|Furankī is a fictional character from the anime and manga series "One Piece" by Eichiro Oda. He is the seventh member to join and the Shipwright of the Straw Hat Pirates.

Creation and conception

Franky was created by Oda with Kazuki Yao's voice in mind because of his portrayals as Jango and Mr. 2 Bon Clay.Fact|date=September 2008

Character outline


His dream is to build a ship capable of sailing to the end of the Grand Line. He partially accomplished this when he constructed the Straw Hat pirates' second ship, the "Thousand Sunny". He is currently sailing with the crew to completely fulfill his dream.

Franky appears to be something of a perfectionist. When building stairs for the crew to cross on Thriller Bark instead of creating a simple crossing (Which would have been amazing in itself) he builds an ornate walkway which he tells them not to cross because he still wasn't quite happy with the detailing.


Franky is very talented carpenter and shipwright. But apparently not limited to those fields, as he was able to turn his own body into that of a cyborg.

As such, Franky's artificial parts grant him incredible strength, as well as making him practically invulnerable to most frontal attacks, leaving his back his only weak point, as he couldn't reach it during construction. His fighting style focuses on projectile attacks, including an extendable right bionic arm "strong right" and cannons in his left arm, "weapons left". He also can use his Cola Engine to fire bursts of wind, "Coup de Vent".

Franky's hair style and attitude are affected by the type of drink he uses for fuel, seen when Chopper accidentally hands him vegetable juice and tea."One Piece Manga" - Vol.42 - Chapter 404 ((JP) ISBN 4-08-874127-7 )] Franky's strength and weapons are much more powerful when he is fueled by cola, and some of his attacks can not be used without it. His hair acts as a kind of meter to the amount of cola in his stomach, being tall if he is full and sagging if empty. Franky's stomach compartment can hold up to three bottles of cola.

Plot overview

Franky (known originally as Cutty Flam) was born the son of a pirate in South Blue and crossed into the Grand Line when he was four years old ["One Piece" Manga - Chapter 490] . After being abandoned at 10 years old, he became the apprentice of the master shipwright Tom, who built Gold Roger's ship, the "Oro Jackson". He and Iceburg helped Tom construct the sea train after Spandam, leader of CP5 at that time, brought charges against Tom in order to pressure him into surrendering the blueprints to the superweapon, "Pluton". After completing the sea train, Tom refused to give up the blueprints of the ancient warship "Pluton", resulting in Spandam using Cutty Flam's fleet of warships to attack Water 7. In order to protect Cutty, Tom takes the blame for the attack and is sentenced to the Marine prison Impel Down. Cutty Flam tries to stop the sea train as it is taking Tom away, but is run over by the charging engine. Nearly dead, he awakens on a scrapped vessel and uses the nearby parts to create his cyborg body. Cutty Flam later returns to Water 7 under the name Franky, where he rounds up the lowlifes of the city to form the Franky Family.

Franky makes his first appearance in the city of Water 7 as the founder and leader of the Franky Family, a group of ship dismantlers and delinquents. Even though he is not technically part of the crew during the Water 7 Arc he joins with the Straw Hat crew to fight the World Government and CP9. With Nico Robin they are both held by CP9 who holds him for Tom's work on the Gold Roger's ship. With the help of the Straw Hat pirates, Franky defeats Spandam and helps the pirates escape from the marines. With their escape he is reluctant to join the crew because he doesn't want to leave his friends and home behind.
