Publisher NGames has revealed some of the most powerful – and utterly ridiculous looking – characters that players can discover and recruit in One Piece browser-based adventure MMO, Pockie Pirates.

With the recent release of "Chapter 5 – The Straw Hats", the vast world of One Piece browser-based MMO, Pockie Pirates is teeming with crew members desperate to join a ship. But don't let their appearances fool you. Sometimes, the silliest looking characters can also be the most powerful.

Take Luffy's close ally, Buggy for example. A bumbling bad guy with a big red nose who's comedic exploits and pathetic history often mask his potential. Buggy is actually a very strong pirate, capable of unleashing wicked spinning dart attacks that can turn any battle in his crews favour. Plus he looks like a clown, which is always creepy. Shudder.

Then there's Hatchen, an A-rank Swordsman recruitable at Lvl. 50. So what if he's a bumbling, slow, and ridiculous looking octopus fisherman – anybody who gets in the way of his Six-Sword Waltz attack will soon be sorry they stopped to point and laugh at him.

Mr.5 is often ridiculed for looking like a drop out rock star. But beneath his spiky hair and Mick Jagger lips lay some extremely powerful attacks – none more so than his Silent Bomb ability, which can stun and inflict 150% physical damage on anybody it targets. He can do a moonwalk too.

Pirates should step carefully around Magellan. The venom dripping Venom-Venom Fruit user may look like he's in need of a good shower, but get too close and his Poison Dragon attack can drain his enemies health for days on end. Captains looking to form a perfectly balanced crew would do well to match Megallan up with some speedy pirates.

There are tons of well known anime characters awaiting players in Pockie Pirates' world. Pirates should never forget that even the most ridiculous looking characters could be a great addition to their crew. So get recruiting!
