Born Vinsmoke Sanji, “Black Leg” Sanji is one of the Nine Senior Officers of the Straw Hat Grand Fleet and serves as the cook for the Straw Hat Pirates.

His real name is Vinsmoke Sanji. He is the fifth person to join the crew and the fourth person to do so after the Baratie Arc has concluded.

In spite of the fact that he was the third son and fourth child of the Vinsmoke Family, which made him a former prince of the Germa Kingdom, he rejected his family on two separate occasions: the first time when he was a child, and the second time after reuniting with them as an adult. After escaping from the Vinsmokes as a child, he was eventually taken in by Zeff as the sous chef of the Baratie. He would continue working there until he met Monkey D. Luffy, who encouraged him to join his crew.

His goal is to arrive at All Blue, the legendary heaven for chefs, which is said to be located at the point where East Blue, West Blue, North Blue, and South Blue all converge, bringing with them all of their respective fauna. Alongside Luffy and Zoro, he is considered to be one of the three best fighters in the Straw Hat Pirates.

Sanji’s Distinguishing Look In Red

Sanji is a lean man with a strong build and lengthy legs.

He has blonde hair that he wears in a side-swept fashion over one side of his face. Before the time jump, we were looking at the left side of the screen. Following the time jump of two years, he altered his hairdo so that it now covers the right side of his face. After the time jump, it seems that Sanji’s hair is no longer as straight and has more of a rumpled appearance.

One of the distinguishing features of Sanji’s appearance is the shape of his eyebrows. Both of these things form a spiral, but at opposite ends. The end of his right eyebrow is shaped like a spiral, whereas the end of his left eyebrow is shaped like a spiral.

His eyebrows arch in a clockwise manner, in contrast to those of his siblings, all of whom have eyebrows that arch in a counterclockwise way (i.e to the left side). Instead, Sanji’s eyebrows are arched in a manner counterclockwise (i.e to the right side).

Sanji’s Character Traits and Abilities

He is, much like Zoro, more insightful than he initially appears to be, and he frequently tells people what they need to hear rather than what they want to hear.

As a consequence of this, he is considered to be one of the more hardened members of the crew and, at times, can be just as terrifying as Zoro. However, in contrast to Zoro, he does not shy away from displaying his feelings when the occasion calls for them. He is fully capable of shedding tears or losing his rage, depending on the circumstances. Even though Sanji appears to be one of the more jaded members of the crew, he does not mind acting childishly excited in certain circumstances or dancing with the more immature members of the crew (Luffy, Usopp, Chopper, and Brook).

He also acknowledges that he is not perfect. Sanji does not object to acting foolishly on certain occasions. He is very amorous, constantly flirting with any attractive woman he sees, earning him the nickname “ero-cook.” Sanji is also able to think one step ahead (especially during dangerous situations) before anyone else does, making him quite clever. Sanji is also able to think one step ahead (especially during dangerous situations) before anyone else does.

Sanji often makes the comparison between himself and a prince from a fairytale because he believes he is gorgeous and charming. This quality has not yet been remarked upon by any of the other people. Those who are closer to him and are more cynical have a tendency to bring him down to earth with a thud (such as being called the “Prince of Dumb ass Kingdom” by Zoro, prompting Sanji to attack him).

A deep reverence for both the nourishment that comes from food and the work that goes into preparing it in the kitchen is one of Sanji’s most notable traits. Because of the vital function that food and other forms of sustenance play in the process of keeping a person alive, he is firm in the opinion that the work of a chef ought to be revered as though it were holy.
