The Beasts Pirates are an infamous and powerful pirate crew led by Kaido of the Yonko.
Similar with the Donquixote Pirates and the Big Mom Pirates, the Beasts Pirates’ hierarchy includes captain (dubbed “General”), executive officers, normal officers, and a bunch of rank-and-file members. The crew is massive in number with Kaido himself, several All-Stars, many Headliners, and an unknown number of Gifters and Pleasures, and over 500 SMILE users.
There are those in the Beasts Pirates with the rank known as the All-Stars who are the executive officers, having the highest authority, reverence, and fighting prowess second only to Kaido. Three of them are Kaido’s right-hand men known as the Disasters, consisting of Jack the Drought, Queen the Pague and King the Wildfire.
Both Jack and King each ate Ancient Zoan-type Devil Fruits which allow them to transform into a mammoth and a pteranodon respectively.
The Beasts Pirates have Headliners who are officers who answer to the All-Stars directly. The strongest Headliners in the crew are known as the Flying Six. Headliners are typically the highest crew authorities in Wano towns that high-class officials reside in (other than the Flower Capital), and so are usually the ones to address smaller-scale issues happening nearby.
Many of the Headliners have eaten Devil Fruits or SMILEs. Powerful people who join the crew may become Headliners in a very short amount of time, such as X Drake and Basil Hawkins. The strength of the Headliners seems to vary from individual to individual and depends on whom they are fighting. Sheepshead was easily blocked by Brook and taken out by a single strike from Sanji, and Dobon was easily defeated by Eustass Kid and Luffy despite the latter two wearing Seastone shackles. Basil Hawkins fought Roronoa Zoro and Luffy simultaneously on equal ground and easily clashed with Trafalgar Law.
The Gifters are the crew’s elite infantry, consisting of Artificial Devil Fruit users led by the Headliner Sheepshead. They were created through the use of SMILEs, which gives them the ability to transform some parts of their body, such as their arms or ears, into different parts of an animal’s body even some animals that live in the ocean. With the defeat of Doflamingo and Caesar’s capture, however, Kaido’s attempt at building up a giant army of Gifters was brought to an abrupt end.
The Pleasures are the crew’s foot soldiers who do not appear to have any animal traits. They serve as patrolling scouts in Wano Country.
The Waiters are the crew’s basic foot soldiers who also appear to lack animal traits. All of them appear to be shirtless. Their specific role in the crew is unknown; they appeared in the Prisoner Mine to fight Luffy and Hyogoro in a sumo match, and wielded various kinds of swords. However, none of them have notable strength or willpower as they were all knocked out by Luffy’s Haoshoku Haki.
