Gaimon – Oda’s favourite character

Eiichiro Oda stated that Gaimon was his favorite character in an interview from One Piece Color Walk 1 (published in 2001).

Gaimon has a green afro hairstyle, a black beard, a chubby face and a big mouth. He has been stuck inside a treasure chest for twenty-two years, and his body’s shape has grown accustomed to it overtime, making it virtually impossible for him to get out.
