Kuro (クロ) is the cunning captain of the Black Cat Pirates. Years before the story, Kuro planned on renouncing his title as Captain Kuro because he had become a notorious pirate. It changed when Marine captain Morgan attacked his ship. In the battle, Kuro slaughtered all the marines, but spared the marine captain but not before breaking his jaw and cutting off his right hand. he then pretended to serve under Kaya's family in Syrup Village with the false name Khaladore.

Eventually, his harsh nature was discovered by Luffy's crew who were visiting the village. Kuro then issues plans to kill Kaya and renounce his Captain title. During his battle with Luffy, Kuro drove himself to attack his own crew in a rage. Despite his efforts to not let his plans be disrupted, Luffy finishes the pirate captain with the Gomu Gomu no Kane. After the battle, the Black Cat pirate crew took their captain away and they were never seen since.

He is first seen in One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 as a non-playable character.
