His steel armor equipped with various artillery
Don Krieg (首領・クリーク, Don Kuriiku) is the strongest pirate in East Blue who is notorious for his nickname, "Foul Play". He and his crew tried to search for the legendary treasure, One Piece, but met failure when they were discovered by Mihawk. With one ship remaining, they barely managed to sail back to East Blue.
His first mate, Gin, had been saved from hunger by Sanji's cooking. To help his captain, Gin then brings a starving Krieg aboard the restaurant Baratie for nourishment. Unlike Gin, who peacefully left in gratitude, Krieg sees the value of stealing the harmless looking restaurant as a ploy for his pirate crew. A rejuvenated Krieg tries to take the Baratie by force through any means necessary. After an arduous battle between the invaders and defenders, Krieg ultimately fails and the Baratie ship remains independent. His crew respectfully withdraw after Krieg's defeat.
Krieg lives up to his nickname. He is treacherous and maleficent, willing to use any underhanded tactic in his arsenal. Victory is all that matters to him; the method of obtaining it has little to no consideration for him. He rules his crew with draconian might and expects utter obedience for his overbearing demands.
