Even if I had allowed you to continue peacefully on your voyage... At your level, death is all you would have found... You're nowhere near ready for the "New World"...!!! Though it would appear you have gathered yourself quite a fine crew....You would only lose it all!!![...] My words...come from experience. My subordinates... They were famed, far and wide... Why did I have to lose them all...?!!! My friends were lost to me precisely because they were still alive!!! If they had all been zombies, dead from the start, I would have lost nothing!!! For zombies are invulnerable!! Eternal warriors; even if they are purified, a replacement can be found!!!

Gecko Moria is a villain from One Piece and was a member of the Shichibukai who resided on the largest ship in the world, Thriller Bark. His powers can manipulate shadows. His former bounty is 320,000,000 Beli. He is also the main antagonist of the Thriller Bark Arc who stole Brook's and various other beings' shadows with the use of the Kage Kage no Mi. He took part in the Battle of Marineford and sided with the Marines, along with most of the other Shichibukai.

Speed: Massively Hypersonic+ (His Doppleman could easily react to Luffy’s Gatling Gun and block it. Moria himself could easily outrun Luffy long enough for the the rubber boy to get tired.

Intelligence: Skilled combatant with extensive experience with fighting many opponents including a Yonko (he lost, though), cunning planner, good leader, good battle tactician (outsmarted Nico Robin)

Weaknesses: Standard Devil Fruit users weaknesses. Overconfident and lazy, Shadow Asgard form is temporary and can lose power if hit by even a weaker opponent, zombies still have the personality of the person their shadow was taken from and take a while to come under his control if they have a lot of power, no special powers such as Devil Fruit abilities are transferred to the zombie with the shadow, only the original owner's personality (which subsides after a while), physical stats, and skills, if the original owner dies the zombie with his/her shadow will die too, zombies can have their shadows ejected from them and returned to their original owner if they eat salt (an amount proportional to their body size), shadows will return to their owner if the zombie body they are in is completely destroyed, shadows stolen by Moria that have been ejected from a zombie can be used by anyone inside of their body and give them a power boost, but it only lasts for 10 minutes at most, but only people with strong spirits can survive having more than a few shadows in them at once. Can be reckless at times.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Kage Kage no Mi (Shadow Shadow Fruit): A Paramecia type Devil Fruit, this fruit allows the user to manifest and control shadows as a tangible physical form. With this power, the user is able to grab hold of their victim's shadow. They are then able to cut it with a pair of scissors as if it were a cloth. With the shadow, they are then able to place it into a lifeless corpse in order to create a zombie minion. The minion that is created retains the mannerisms and abilities of the victim. The minion, however, is only as strong as the body it is composed of. As for the original owner of the shadow, they will enter a two day coma once their shadow is separated from them. The Devil Fruit user can use this effect to their advantage in battle as the original owner is completely defenseless until they wake up from their coma or are woken up. The original owner of the shadow is then forced to remain in darkness as they will vaporize if hit by sunlight. Being unable to exist in light, the original owner is also unable to cast any sort of reflection and is also unable to be photographed.

  • Doppelman: Moria's shadow fights for him, it hits like a solid being but has logia-like intangibility and shapeshifting powers (it can become a swarm of bats, for example) - Moria can switch positions with Doppelman instantly.
  • Kage Kakumei: Moria implants his shadow in the shadow of a victim. With it inside, it is able to manipulate the shadow shape of the victim. When the shape of the shadow is changed, the victim's body will also be changed. Moria is able to do this because of the general rule about shadows. It is common knowledge that the shade will conform to the body. Because of this, the shadow and the body always remain in the same form. By changing the shape of the body shadow with the powers of Moria, the body is forced to match the shape of the shadow.

  • Brick Bat: Moria transforms his Doppelman, into a several. These balls then turn into a swarm of bats that can attack an opponent. Once it has been used, the bats can fuse again to reform Doppelman. These bats have a kind of invulnerability and always heal after being hit.
  • Black Box: In Shadow Asgard form, Moria creates several shadow bats that merge to form a box to trap an opponent, allowing him to then physically attack said opponent.
  • Tsuno Tokage: Similar to Black Box, Moria manipulates Brick Bats to create a giant shadow spear roughly 20 meters in length and 5 meters in width, it can easily pierce through a giant able to withstand cannon fire from Marine Headquarters.
Shadow Asgard: Moria summons all the shadows that belong to his zombies and absorbs them into his body, growing to giant size and morphing a bit to be like a lizard (hence his name). This gives him a massive strength boost, but it only lasts for a limited amount of time and he loses shadows when hit by a strong enough attack, and his speed is greatly decreased.
