Franky (フランキー), also known as "Iron Man" Franky, is the shipwright of the Straw Hat Pirates. He is the eighth member of the Straw Hat crew and the seventh to join Luffy's crew. He is one of the protagonists of One Piece.
As a direct result of the modifications that he conducted upon himself as well as the years spent as a ship dismantler, bounty hunter, and street thug in Water 7, Franky is a powerfully built man with a height of at least seven feet, making him the third-tallest member of the Straw Hat crew, after Jinbe and Brook. His forearms are relatively enormous while his biceps are comparably small. His chest is well-toned with large abs and pectoral muscles. He has brightly-colored blue hair and blue star tattoos on his forearms. Franky's eyebrows are rather long and stern, and he has three prominent lower Matsuge on each eye. His chin is very angular and tapers off in three pointed clefts. Franky has an equally angular prosthetic nose made of iron with several rivets and jagged edges, the only replacement part of his exterior body that is not covered in artificial skin.
Over the two years he was on his own, Franky used Vegapunk's blueprints to drastically reconfigure his body, repairing the damage he accidentally caused to himself and replacing some old functions his body used to have with better and more powerful implements. Franky's hair is now controllable, and can change different styles instantly by pushing his nose for more than three seconds. While he used to wear it up in a pompadour style, he now frequently changes his hairstyle, typically whenever he wears a new outfit. However, he reverts to his original pompadour style whenever he is inside General Franky.
He also has two stitch-mark scars on his torso running down from the back of his neck indicating that he had sewn his skin back on, and he appears to have made modifications to his eyes as well. What appears to be his eyes are actually lenses that resemble human eyes over a pair of robotic eyes underneath. His left eye was seen with inverse coloration and with a glowing red pupil after his battle with Senor Pink, after being knocked around so much it caused the lens over the eye to fall out. Once the fighting against the Donquixote Pirates had come to a close and Franky had some downtime to repair himself, he installed a replacement lens.
In Super Smash Flash 2
In Super Smash Flash 2, Franky appears as one of the numerous background characters on Thousand Sunny, along with Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Sanji, Nico Robin, Usopp, Brook, Tony Tony Chopper, and Jinbe. He appears on the upper-left side of the stage, standing on the deck and watching the fight. When a KO is scored, he reaches his arms up and poses with his star tattoo.
