Charlotte Smoothie is one of the Three Sweet Commanders of the Big Mom Pirates and serves as Totto Land’s Minister of Juice. As one of Big Mom’s most powerful subordinates, defeating Charlotte Smoothie is no easy feat. However, in the Whole Cake Island Arc of the One Piece manga, Charlotte Smoothie was defeated by a combination of efforts from the Straw Hat Pirates, Fire Tank Pirates, and Germa 66.
Charlotte Smoothie’s Strengths
As a Sweet Commander, Charlotte Smoothie possesses tremendous physical strength and Devil Fruit abilities. Her bounty of 932,000,000 berries reflects her threat level. Some of Charlotte Smoothie’s key strengths include:
- Immense physical strength – She can squeeze juice out of objects and living beings with her bare hands
- Devil Fruit powers – She ate the Shibo Shibo no Mi, allowing her to “wring out” anything she touches and drain liquid from it
- Towering size – She stands at around 492cm (16’1″), making her an intimidating giant
- Observation Haki proficiency – She can sense the presence and movements of others
- Powerful swordplay – She wields a large saber in combat
- Command over her fleet – As a Sweet Commander, she leads a massive fleet of ships and crew
With these powers and abilities, Charlotte Smoothie is certainly one of the strongest combatants in Totto Land. Taking her down requires ample strength, skill, and strategy.
The Alliance Forces
During the Whole Cake Island Arc, the Straw Hat Pirates formed an alliance with the Fire Tank Pirates led by Capone Bege, and the Germa 66 forces led by Vinsmoke Judge. Together, these factions formed a formidable allied force that could challenge Big Mom and her crew. The key players who contributed to defeating Charlotte Smoothie included:
The Straw Hat Pirates
- Monkey D. Luffy – The captain with tremendous physical strength and Haki abilities
- Nami – The navigator who can manipulate weather with her Clima-Tact
- Brook – The musician who wields a powerful soul sword
- Pedro – The mink who sacrificed himself with a massive suicidal explosion
The Fire Tank Pirates
- Capone Bege – The cunning captain with strategic castle powers
- Vito – A crewmate skilled in marksmanship
- Gotty – A crewmate capable of discharging electricity
- Vinsmoke Judge – The technology-empowered commander
- Vinsmoke Ichiji – Judge’s powerful eldest son
- Vinsmoke Niji – Judge’s electrifying second son
- Vinsmoke Yonji – Judge’s strong youngest son
Together, these crews formed a formidable alliance to take on the forces of Totto Land.
The Defeat of Charlotte Smoothie
Throughout the events in Totto Land during the Whole Cake Island Arc, Charlotte Smoothie was defeated through the combined efforts of the alliance forces:
Nami defeats Smoothie’s fleet
When the Straw Hats first arrived in Totto Land, Smoothie led a massive fleet to intercept them. However, Nami utilized her weather-manipulating abilities to summon a massive lightning storm. The lightning struck Smoothie’s fleet, decimating the ships with thunderbolts.
This disabled Smoothie’s naval forces, allowing the Straw Hats to slip into Totto Land’s waters undeterred. Smoothie’s fleet and naval power were effectively neutralized.
Brook shatters Smoothie’s picture
Later, when Brook infiltrated Big Mom’s room in the Whole Cake Chateau, he came across Smoothie’s portrait. Knowing she could see through it, Brook slashed the picture with his sword – cutting off Smoothie’s visual surveillance into Mama’s room.
This prevented Smoothie from monitoring the alliance’s activities and movements through the portrait. It kept their plans hidden from her sight.
Pedro’s sacrifice blocks Smoothie
When the alliance began their escape, Smoothie attempted to stop them by squeezing the corridor walls to block their path. However, Pedro leapt towards Smoothie and triggered a massive explosion, sacrificing himself.
This blew Smoothie away from the corridor and cleared the path for the alliance to press forward. Pedro’s suicidal blast saved the alliance from being trapped by Smoothie’s powers.
Teamwork defeats Smoothie
In a combined effort, the alliance managed to bring Smoothie down during their escape:
- Nami struck Smoothie with a massive thunderbolt
- Brook froze her in place with his ice powers
- Chopper knocked her off the ledge
- Judge struck her with his spear
- Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji battered her with projectiles
- Vito and Gotty riddled her with bullets
- The Straw Hats and Fire Tank Pirates blasted her with heavy cannon fire
Assaulted from all sides, Smoothie was unable to counter the full force of the entire alliance. Their teamwork and combination attacks overwhelmed her and took her out of the fight.
Following these defeats, Smoothie was unable to continue pursuing the alliance as they made their escape from Totto Land. While she was not fully incapacitated, the damage she sustained prevented her from capturing the escaping forces.
By weathering Smoothie’s naval fleet, cutting off her surveillance, blocking her with a suicidal blast, and finally overpowering her with their combined might, the alliance managed to defeat one of Big Mom’s mighty Sweet Commanders through proper teamwork and strategy.
This goes to show that even Charlotte Smoothie’s tremendous liquid-draining powers and physical strength are not invincible. With the right abilities, teamwork, and tactics, she can be overcome and beaten back.
Charlotte Smoothie’s defeat can be summarized by these key points:
- Nami disabled Smoothie’s naval fleet with thunderstorms
- Brook cut off her surveillance by destroying her portrait
- Pedro halted her advance with a suicidal explosion
- The alliance overpowered her with teamwork and combination attacks
- Smoothie was unable to stop the alliance’s escape from Totto Land
- With strategy and teamwork, even Big Mom’s top officers can be defeated
In the Whole Cake Island Arc, Charlotte Smoothie served as a major antagonist and obstacle as part of Big Mom’s forces. However, through careful planning, sacrifice, and combined might, the alliance of the Straw Hats, Fire Tanks, and Germa 66 managed to overwhelm her.
This just goes to show that when working together and playing to their strengths, Luffy’s ragtag band of pirates and allies can topple even the most fearsome Sweet Commanders of the Big Mom Pirates. Charlotte Smoothie ultimately fell victim to the sheer firepower and tactical coordination of the alliance forces.
