|~ Hody Jones|
Hody Jones is the main antagonist of the Fishman Island Arc and a firm follower of the radical Fishman pirate Arlong. He is a great white shark Fishman who since his childhood was exposed and bathed in the hatred for the human race and grew to hold a massive disliking toward them, willing to go to extreme lengths to maintain the animosity between them.

Standard Equipment: His trident, many Energy Steroids
Intelligence: Above average (He managed to trick his entire community into believing humans are evil by framing someone else after killing the queen of Fishman Island and kept it secret for years. He nearly succeeded in overthrowing Neptune and would have if not for Luffy's intervention)
Standard Tactics: Hody is a fairly well-skilled Fishman Karate practitioner, and will prefer to use ranged water-based attacks if possible to snipe an opponent from afar before blitzing in for a kill. Almost always bloodlusted considering his Great White Shark heritage, Hody is exceptionally straightforward in fights. He will attempt to make it a water-based fight for his own advantage if possible, use human shields, bite his opponent with his powerful jaws, and all around try to out-bruteforce his foe with raw physicals.
Of special note, Hody will indulge in Energy Steroid quite frequently, a drug which amps the user's physicals by 2 multiplicatively.
Weaknesses: The Energy Steroids that he carries with him grant him a great amount of power, but as a drawback, it causes the body to advance far faster than normal. Less than a few days after losing to Luffy, Hody Jones aged and weakened to the point where fighting was impossible
Fishman Karate: A martial art practiced by the Fishmen which allowed them to manipulate water in various ways. They could send shock-waves with their punches and kicks, or throw powerful water droplets at their enemies.
Hody was a practitioner of Fish-Man Karate and he showcased it by his manipulation of water. He could hurl simple droplets of water and turn them into deadly bullets with extreme kinetic force. He could also punch the water to send a shockwave through the water and the victims body.
After overdosing on Energy Steroids, Hody appeared to drip with water even though he wasn't soaked, suggesting that he'd been secreting it. However, according to Jinbe, Hody's Fish-Man Karate was at an amateur level despite his great strength as shown when fighting Luffy, for while Jinbe could do noticeable damage to the rubber man, Hody's attacks were ineffective. After his body became old and frail, his Fish-Man Karate ability most likely decreased significantly.
- Rough Shark: Hody uses his tremendous strength and grip to crush large walls of stone.
- Arrow Military Shark: Hody first wets his arm, then he uses his massive strength to throw many drops of water, which are converted into deadly arrows through mere kinetic force. After his transformation on Energy Steroids, Hody secretes the water from his arm, rather than gathering it from an external source.
- Water Shot: The basic version of Yabusame, in which Hody throws a single drop of water like a bullet. After undergoing the transformation due to the Energy Steroids, the penetrative force of this attack has increased in an unbelievable way, to the point where it not only pierced through a fish-man, but also through several structures and rock formations behind him, moving a long distance away from the location from which it was fired, and only then returning to its original state of drop and falling in the water.
- Ocean Drum: Hody punches the water in front of him pushing it at his opponent and sending a shockwave through it. The shockwave hits the opponent dealing great damage and leaving a pressure mark on his body.
