Arlong the Saw is a Sawshark Fishman, older half-brother of Madam Shyarly and the captain of the Arlong Pirates, who is very prejudiced towards humans. He was a former member of the Sun Pirates, but after their captain Jinbe became one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea, he broke off, taking his former crew with him, and searched for easy targets in the relatively tame East Blue. There, he and his crew enslaved Nami's home island and forced her to work for them as a cartographer, after killing her surrogate mother Bellemere. With her cartography skills and his connections with the Marines allowing him to operate under the radar, Arlong's plan was to turn the East Blue into his own personal empire. He was the main antagonist of the Arlong Park arc.
Arlong and the rest of his crew were imprisoned after the Straw Hats put an end to his reign. Hatchan was the only one to escape. Prior to his capture, his bounty was 20,000,000 Berries, the highest bounty in the East Blue before being defeated by Monkey D. Luffy.
Like many other One Piece characters, he has his own unique laugh, which is "Shahahahaha".
