: Nico Robin (Miss Sunday)
Epithet : Miss All Sunday
Age : 28
Birthday : February 6th
Height : 188 cm (6' 2")
First Appearance : Manga Chapter #114, Anime Episode #67
Species : Human
Bounty : 80,000,000

Robin has had a bounty of 79 million berries on her head since she was eight years old, during an incident in which she supposedly destroyed six buster call ships through the use of the powers she gained by the eating the Hana Hana Fruit (Hana Hana no Mi), but this was proven wrong in her flashback. The fruit's power enables her to conjure up multiple replicas of her body parts (most often her arms) upon any surface she is able to see. She is very powerful and dextrous as a result.

She is infamous in the public eye, the World Government is afraid of her because she can decipher poneglyphs, which some believe contain details capable of reviving ancient weapons that have the power to destroy the world. In reality, Robin has stated that she does not care about ancient weapons. During the Water 7 arc, the famous shipbuilder Tom is revealed to have spoken of her ability as a danger to the world. He gave the blueprints of one of the ancient weapons, the warship Pluton, to Franky and Iceburg in an attempt to protect it from Robin. Her ability to read Poneglyphs is the true reason for her bounty; "sinking six ships" is a lie from the World Government.

RobinRobin is a mysterious and serious person who appears quiet and reclusive. She was thought by those around her to be cold and mean, but it was proven that she is actually a kind person who always thinks before she acts. She oftentimes only speaks when something interesting or important has happened. She loves to study history, and joins the Straw Hat pirates for comfort and freedom to study and read. She also has a bit of a macabre touch, as she is quick to point out gross or morbid events or facts, often creeping out Nami or Usopp.

Robin often tries to distance herself from other people, even her friends, as she knows that she is bound to leave them sooner or later. For that she rarely calls her comrades by name, and instead uses titles, such as Miss Navigator (K¨­kaishi-san, i.e. Nami), Mr. Swordsman (i.e. Zoro), Long Nose (Nagahana-kun, i.e. Usopp), etc. However, she calls Luffy by name. There may be changes to this behavior after finishing the Enies Lobby.

Robin is the only crewmember who never shows any goofiness or 'silly faces' like Nami, Zoro and Sanji. She is the only crewmember who is normal-themed and emotionally reserved, and the only time she ever acted a bit silly is when she acted in a play once (One Piece TV Special 3, which is not considered canon by many fans). However she's not the only character in One Piece who behaves like this. There are similar characters, like Kohza, Captain Kuro, Sir Crocodile, Lucci, Olvia, Wiper, etc.

Robin's personality was influenced by three people in her past: Jaguar D. Saulo, her mother Nico Olvia and Professor Clover. It was professor Clover that made her an archaeologist, it was his research on poneglyphs that sparked her interest in True History. Also, Clover allowed her to read books in his library which sparked her interest in them. It was Olvia who encouraged Robin to flee and live to chase her dreams. It was Jaguar D. Saulo who was Robin's first friend, encouraging Robin to search for her friends, and taught Robin to laugh even if it hurt, which fortified her quiet, shy nature and pleasant smile.

RobinShe is in search of the True History Text, which contains the details of an unrecorded period in her world's history. This text is believed to have been brought to the last island of The Grand Line, Raftel, by Gold Roger.

Robin first appears as "Miss All-Sunday" ("Miss Sunday" in the English anime), agent and vice-president of the Baroque Works organization, at the end of the Whiskey Peak arc.

She was responsible for blowing up Igaram's decoy ship, though Igaram survived, which apparently was her intention. She met the Straw Hat Pirates and offered them an Eternal Pose to Nanimonai Island (which is just short of Alabasta); however, Luffy broke it, saying that he would not allow her to decide their destination. Princess Vivi revealed that it was Miss All-Sunday who allowed her to discover the identity of Baroque Works' president, Sir Crocodile.

Throughout the Baroque Works Saga, it becomes apparent that Robin does not care about Baroque Works, as she continually and discreetly helps Luffy and his crew succeed in defeating Crocodile. In one instance she saves Luffy's life and gets Pell (whom she earlier attacked) to help him. In the end she betrays Crocodile by lying to him about the poneglyphs he wanted her to decipher for him. She fails to assassinate him, and is in turn stabbed by Crocodile. She is left for dead, only to be saved (against her will) by Luffy.

Robin then stows away on the Going Merry, much to the surprise of the Straw Hats when they return to their ship. Robin tells Luffy that since he saved her life when she wanted to die, he has to let her join him on his ship.

After the Davy Back Fight, she is confronted by Aokiji, one of the three Chief Admirals. Aokiji frightens Robin as he reveals to the crew a little of Nico Robin's dark past: that any organization she joins is always wiped out, with her the only survivor. He then freezes her with his Hie Hie (Ice Ice) Devil's Fruit powers, and Chopper has to save her.

RobinLater in the Water 7 arc Robin disappears in the city. It then turns out that she is working with a government organization called CP9, and had betrayed the Straw Hat Pirates. Under CP9's orders, she attempts to assassinate the mayor of Water 7, Iceburg, framing Luffy and the others for the crime. However, her "betrayal" was actually part of a deal she made with CP9: they promised to leave the Straw Hats alone if she willingly turned herself over to the government and helped to resurrect the fabled ancient ship, Pluton. Luffy and the others find out about this, however, and the current storyline sees them mounting a rescue attempt, at first on the sea trains leaving Water 7 and later on the government island of Enies Lobby.

In response, Luffy ordered Sogeking to burn the World Government flag. This is Luffy's way of showing Robin that he and the Straw Hats would never abandon her and since the World Government is her enemy, then they are the Straw Hat's enemy too. Luffy then encouraged Robin to say she wants to live which she did, Robin shouted that she wanted to go to sea with them again.

Spandam and the soldiers accompanying him were shot by Sogeking from the Tower of Justice. At that point, Franky finally caught up and released Robin with the number 5 key. In response to Spandam's "courtesy", Robin used Seis Fleur Slap on him, slapping him numerous time. With the help of Franky, they managed to secure Spandam's escape ship, and the other crewmembers, sans Luffy, managed to reach it. However, they were attacked by over 200 Marine captains and lieutenants from Buster Call ships, though this time around Robin has joined in on the fight.

Currently, Robin is celebrating at Water 7 with her friends and those who helped her escape Enies Lobby. While standing alone and smiling, away from the celebration, she is greeted by a familiar voice. It is Aokiji, who is hiding behind the wall she is leaning against. He tells her that he let her go 20 years ago only because Saulo had been his friend and that this whole Enies Lobby event was to end everything after seeing her still floating in the world like a timebomb waiting to go off. Then Aokiji asks if she has found a home with the Straw Hats, and after she says that she has, he left saying that Ohara isn't fully destroyed yet, presumably meaning that the memory and purpose of Ohara lives on within her.

According to the recently released Chapter 435, Robin's bounty is increased to 80 Million, with a new picture. The increase is very small in comparison to the rest of the crew (with the exception of Chopper). In chapter 437, Robin uses her powers to help 'persuade' Franky to join the crew. This rather painful display of her abilities shocks even the other Straw Hats (so much that Luffy said he wants Franky to join as a man). She just smiles and says that they are pirates, and when they find a large treasure, they grab onto it and don't let go.
