Sir Crocodile is the leader of Baroque Works which he created to help him find the location of Pluton within the Kingdom of Alabasta. He was once was a member of the powerful Shichibukai, but lost his title soon after losing to Monkey D. Luffy. He was first introduced as a major enemy of Luffy's, however, the two later formed an uneasy alliance during their escape from Impel Down and the latter half of the Paramount War.
Sir Crocodile is an antagonist in the One Piece series that was created by Eiichiro Oda. The series first began serialization in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump on August 4, 1997. He first appeared during the Little Garden Arc that began in Volume 13.
His first appearance was in One Piece Volume 14 CH. 126 "Instinct", and his first anime appearance was in One Piece - Episode 76 "Time to Fight Back! Usopp's Quick Thinking and Fire Star!". His character in the Japanese series is voiced by Ryuzaburo Otomo, and the U.S. dub produced by FUNimation is performed by John Swasey.
After years of planning the agents soon met Crocodile and were given there final assignments. Although Crocodile fought and nearly killed Lufffy twice Crocodile chose to keep him alive.
Luffy caught up and a final battle commenced within the crumbling mausoleum. Despite using a poison hook and managing to hit Luffy with it, Luffy's determination to help Vivi kept him going. He finally defeated Crocodile with a super version of his Gatling, Gomu Gomu no Storm, or in the english version, Gum-Gum Storm. Throttling Crocodile severely, smashing him into and eventually through the bedrock of the mausoleum and into the air before he landed in the midst of the war he created. Soon thanks to Tagashi and Smoker the truth about Crocodile was known to the marines. Crocodile was stripped of all his titles and permissions he was granted.
Crocodile was soon sent to Impel Down. At first he refused to go and instead stayed behind enjoying one of his cigars smiling as he watches his former agents escape. On their way out, Miss Goldenweek uses her Rainbow Color Trap to transform his appearance based on his dream, making him appear as the Pirate King. Crocodile was then seen going into Impel Down smiling.
Later in Impel Down, he is serving his sentence within Level 6, from a cage not too far from Jinbei and Ace making sure to comment on how White beard's life would be in danger thanks to the incoming war between the World Government and him. He would love to take revenge of Gol D. Roger and Whitebeard. When Luffy, Inuzuma ,and Ivankov are stuck in Level 6. Crocodile offers to help them get out if they release him. Luffy is defiant at first, as he has yet to forgive Crocodile for what he's done to Vivi and her people. Crocodile countered in his usual unapologetic manner that he's no longer the least bit interested in Alabasta. Crocodile knew Luffy couldn't refuse but when he was freed he did not count on seeing Ivankov here. Apparently all he wants to do is kill Whitebeard. Iva says if he tries to betray them he will reveal Crocodile's weakness. After being released from his bonds, Jinbe warns Crocodile to lay off Whitebeard though Crocodile merely asks if Jinbe would just prefer to fight to the death immediately if that is the case. It is unlikely that Iva was referring to the Suna Suna no Mi's weakness, considering that Luffy also knew about it. After escaping from Level 6, he headed up all the way to Level 4, where he freed Daz Bones to provide him some backup, before he, along with Luffy and Jimbei, single-handedly defeated all of the demon guards. Later on
Crocodile picks him out as his successor in the Shichibukai, and ask him if he really is already giving up the title he so desired. Blackbeard comments that it is part of his plan although it's not going smoothly. He then retorts and ask Crocodile since when did he have to explain his plans to him which Crocodile responded that he really didn't care what he was planning. Crocodile later sates that soon Magellan would arrive. He is later seen making his way through level 2 with Luffy and Jinbe and comments on how vacant it is. A short while later in Level 1, Buggy literally runs into him while fleeing the demon guards. At first, Buggy starts telling him to watch where he is going, but upon seeing who he just ran into, Buggy screams in shock and fear along with Mr. 3. Crocodile asks Mr. 3 what a worthless piece of trash such as him is doing there, which causes Mr. 3 much fear and dread. However, Crocodile was quite impressed later as Mr. 3 saved everyone from Magellan's Hydra using his Candle Wall. Luffy and Mr 3 then work together to take on Magellan.
Crocodile, along with Jimbei, Buggy, Mr. 1, Mr. 2, and the other prisoners find their way out in order to get a ship. Although they awaited the Marine ships at the entrance, not a single ship was waiting in front of Impel Down. But as they noticed some of the Marine ships sailing away at a far end, Crocodile, Mr. 1 and Buggy were still able to make it to a Marine ship, thanks to Jimbei's fishman abilities. He and Mr 1 or Daz Bones
alone manage to defeat all the Marines on the battleship. A short while later he helps defend the ship from cannon fire by stopping the cannon balls with a sandstorm, he also suggest that they use their cannons fire back at the Marine's ship although Buggy takes credit for the idea.
When the escape ends he is seen talking to Jimbei
about how he summoned the whale sharks. He commented on how it seemed odd that Jinbei could summon whale sharks. Crocodile also talks about how the fish men were a violent race, with which Jinbei agreed. When the escape the marines find out. Crocodile tells the have 2 choices. They have to go to Enies Lobby. Buggy convinces Crocodile and the prisoners to join in the battle at Marineford. They approach Marineford and are alter seeing falling from the sky.
Crocodile attacks White beard immediately when he gets there in hopes of killing him. However Luffy stops him and says that he can't let him hurt Whitebeard cause Ace loves him. Crocodile takes no care for this however. He proceeds to fight many White beard pirates with the help of Daz Bones.
When everyone believes that Whitebeard has betrayed his allies in exchange for his own crew, Crocodile shouts against Whitebeard, claiming he's become much weaker since their last battle, much to Crocodile's disgust. Later on when Ace is about to be excuted Crocodile steps in because all though he wants to kill Whitebeard he doesn't want the marines to win either. In retaliation, Doflamingo cuts off his head with his powers, saying that Crocodile has some nerve for choosing to ally with Whitebeard, rather than him; Crocodile, however, states that he isn't on anyone's side, before he and Doflamingo engage in a fight. Crocodile also allows backup for Lufffy when he fight Miahwak by Daz Bones, but when he falls Crocodile steps in and fights Mihawk. When Whitebard is killed Crocodile stands lifeless and in despair about yet shocked. Crocodile repelled Akainu and launched Jinbei and Luffy into the air and out of the Admiral's reach to keep the Marines from having their way any longer. He is then seen standing alongside the Whitebeard Pirates and preparing to face off against Akainu. It is unknown what happened to him during the confrontation with Akainu, he does however appear later, unharmed when Shanks is calling for peace between the pirates and marines. He and Mr. 1 slip away from Marineford and escape when Fleet Admiral Sengoku called off the war.
When the war ends Crocodile is with Daz Bones reading about the war in a newspaper. Looking over the newspaper, he remarks that Luffy and Jinbe, right after having been saved, are committing foolish acts. Bones comments that they must have some sort of plan or they're just being crazy, and then states that Luffy suffered "wounds" that don't heal quickly. Crocodile disagrees and says his wounds are already healed. He then heads back to the New World. He offers Bones to join him and he does without hesitation.
In a mock-trailer in the anime series Gintama, a Crocodile lookalike of Kondou (the stalker) is seen charging towards one of the characters to fight. He is knocked away by a "Gomu Gomu Pistol" move pulled off by one of the characters.
He has his own action figure. He has been in "OP Anime Heroes" He has been in many games. He was been in the "Potrait of pirates" He has even been in
