He is the fourth to join and the fifth member of the crew. He is considered one of the Monster Trio alongside Luffy and Roronoa Zoro. He is one of the main protagonists of the One Piece series.

Sanji is a slim, yet muscular, long-legged man with blond hair which he keeps brushed over one side of his face. Before the timeskip, this was the left side. After the timeskip, he switched his hairstyle so that it covers the right side. It also appears that Sanji's hair is less straight and scruffier after the timeskip.
Among Sanji's physical traits are his distinctive eyebrows. Both form a spiral but at different ends. His right eyebrow forms a spiral at the outer end, while his left eyebrow forms a spiral at the inner end. However, his eyebrows curled in the opposite direction from his siblings, which curls in a counterclockwise direction (i.e to left side). Sanji's eyebrows curled in a clockwise direction (i.e to right side).
While Sanji's eyes usually seem black, he was depicted with grey-blue eyes in the anime at the beginning of Thriller Bark Arc. This is shown again during the Punk Hazard Arc, when Trafalgar Law switched Sanji into Nami's body, and her usual brown eyes became grey-blue in color.
Sanji almost always wears a black, double-breasted suit with golden buttons and a tie together with a long-sleeved buttoned shirt of varying colors, usually orange, blue, turquoise, or black, with or without pinstripes. His outfit changes on a more frequent basis than most of the crew.
In Super Smash Flash 2
Sanji appears as a background character on Thousand Sunny alongside Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Franky, Nico Robin, Usopp, Tony Tony Chopper, Brook, and Jinbe. He appears on the upper-left side of the stage, standing on the deck below Franky and is smoking a cigarette. Just like all the other background characters except for Zoro, he strikes a pose after a character has been KO'd. Sanji's pose involves him kicking three times upwards.
