Arlong the Saw is a sawshark fishman. He was the pirate captain of the all fishman crew the Arlong Pirates a former member of the Sun Pirates and the older brother of Madam Shyarly. He is known for being the main villain in the Arlong Arc and had the highest bounty in East Blue before being defeated by Monkey D. Luffy. Like many other One Piece characters he has his own unique laugh which is Shahahahaha. Arlong considers humans to be inferior beings and is very cruel to them. He is keen to separate his race from humans and is constantly stuck by this mentality that his people are superior to humans in every way. He thinks nothing of killing a town full of humans although he seems to prefer controlling people with money and deals like Nami and Nezumi. He has an eye for spotting exploitable talent that he can use for his goals and is an excellent planner. He spent eight years using Nami and her maps to plan his takeover of the East Blue. Nevertheless any promise about money he makes he keeps. The best example is when his crew urged him to keep Nami even if she brings the 100000000 Beli. However even though Arlong states he cant go back on his word he has no qualms about exploiting loopholes in his deals to unfairly get his way. He is rather easy to anger going berserk after he was attacked by Usopp and having to be dragged back to his base by his crew to prevent him from destroying the whole town. During his fight with Luffy the boys constant fighting back made Arlong mad to the point where it drove him into a deep anger.Arlong himself had expected Luffy to die quickly but his anger made him become reckless and destructive even seriously damaging his own HQ building while attacking Luffy. He has been illtempered since his younger years. However he wasnt always entirely brutal. During a battle with the Marines Arlong told Jinbe to leave the unconscious Marines alone. However it was later shown that he had grown more arrogant over time to the point that he completely had no sympathy for humans. Tigers death led to his hatred hitting rock bottom. He also failed to understand Fisher Tigers reason for letting humans that they attacked live. As a result when Arlong led his own crew and had committed murder humans came to view him as a monster. He was loathed for the actions of him and his crew. In the end he enslaved humans just as the humans once enslaved many fishmen. Though his opinions and his ideals were extreme he displayed a high level of brotherhood with his crew and even towards Nami despite her species divide. Arlong looked after his crew members and even though he betrayed Nami he did so because he didnt want to lose her talent. On top of this in the final moments of the battle with Luffy he stated that Nami was his crew member and would be forever and while he never displayed any regard for her as a friend he was prepared to fight to keep her in the crew. If humans insulted their group Arlong would react to the insult and due to the high level of concern amongst his officers they would attempt to keep his temper under control. When weaker members of his crew were hurt Arlong would seek out revenge on those who had committed the act against those crew members. Ironically Arlong is a hypocrite having accused Koala of being raised to look down on fishmen and think of humans as better than everyone else when Arlong looked down on humans and preached fishmen superiority himself making him no better than the humans. Surprisingly despite his hatred of humanity according to Hatchan Arlong would never harm his fellow fishmen no matter the circumstance. He cared for his crew to a level that when Luffy used one of them as a shield Arlong became extremely angry.
