12 Things You Should Know About Scratchmen Apoo
Scratchmen Apoo is the first member of the Longarm Tribe to appear in the series. He is also the only known member of the Longarm Tribe to have eaten a Devil Fruit.
Apoo’s name was taken with 19th century real-life Chinese pirate Chui A-poo.
His surname, Scratchmen, might be a reference to the act of scratching, a DJ technique in which sounds are manipulated by moving a vinyl record upon a turntable.
Apoo’s birthday, March 19th, is known as ‘Day of music’ (音楽の日 Ongaku no Hi), a reference to his musical abilities.
Like many One Piece characters, Apoo has his own unique laugh, which is “Apapapapapapa”. His laughter also sounds like scratching a record on a turntable, fitting his character motifs.
In both episodes 628 and 629 of the anime, Apoo’s name is misspelled as “Scratcimen Apoo”. This contradicts the manga’s romanization of his name.
As kid, Apoo is shown with significantly shorter hair and a rounder face. His hair was also combed into a pompadour in the front, with his braid in the back. His attire was a less elaborate shirt and bow tie. His teeth also lacked the dark markings that make them resemble piano keys.

If One Piece was set in the real world, then Apoo would be from China.
If Apoo was not a pirate, then he would be a DJ (disc jockey).
