MR. 8
Mr. 8 is the head agent at Whiskey Peaks and is in charge of the entire island. He attempts to trick the Strawhats and capture them to get Luffy's bounty in order to buy food for the town. His attacks are strange in that he uses his saxophone and his hair to shoot bullets . His look with the curled hair and fancy dress are also different as compared to how many villains appear in One Piece. And while he is strong fighter and tactician he is no match for the Strawhats and would rank low on the all time villains list of One Piece. Once again he turns out to be only an agent of Baroque works in the fact he is undercover to find out who their leader is. He was originally the head of the guard of Alabasta and a protector of Vivi( Ms. Wednesday) . So he truly is not even a villain in the grand scheme of things and after this is revealed pretty much becomes an ally of Luffy as do most of the Baroque agents do eventually. After being chased off he decoys himself as Vivi and sets sail for home using a different course, but his ship explodes and he is presumed dead. Although we find out later he is still alive as he reaches Alabasta towards the very end of the fighting. His villainous nature is very small because in reality he is only playing a role and not really a villain. He has redeeming qualities in that he cares for Vivi and his kingdom more than anything and is willing to sacrifice himself in order for them to remain safe. Which is a great quality in a person but not really a villain. That's why even though his villain status is short lived he really is not much of one form the start. After Mr. 8 we will finally start getting into the tougher villains in the Baroque Works group, because all the top five members will have special talents with most of them being devil fruit users. While as a villain Mr. 8 is lacking his true identity has qualities that make him unforgettable and very good character in the One Piece universe. Next blog will then commence the top five Baroque agent pairs, although one of them really is not a pair.
