Moz (モズ Mozu) is one of the two strongest warriors in the Petrification Kingdom, with the other being Kirisame. He was the secondary antagonist of the Treasure Island Arc.

After Ibara's defeat, Moz was revived by the Kingdom of Science at the behest of Hyoga.

Appearance

Moz is a tall, muscular young man wearing pauldrons that appear to be made of stone. His stone guards were destroyed during his fight with Hyoga. He is shown to have replaced them while in America.

When posing as an invader, he wore a a black cloak and different outfit. [8]

He has dark dreadlocks that are tied into a low ponytail. He has facial markings of unknown origin that extend from the top of his eyebrows in a curl, to between his eyes, similar to Kirisame's.

Personality

Moz is a cocky, adventurous and easygoing man who enjoys the company of beautiful women, and strong people. He giddily looks forward to the harem selection every year, hoping for cute women to appear. He becomes fascinated with Kohaku upon meeting her, due to her combination of strength and beauty, two things he appreciates greatly.

He enjoys this fun to a fault, allowing Kohaku into the harem despite her nearly breaking Minister Ibara's hand. Even in the past, he lamented having to petrify the young escaping Amaryllis, recognizing how beautiful she could potentially be in the future. He also showed attraction to Luna, immediately commenting on her beauty.

Despite all this, he possesses a sharp instinct and is cunning, and it is hinted that he knows a lot more than he lets on. Another glimpse of this is when he reminded the enemy that they were shorthanded and it would be best for them to not kill him and his friends because they were needed. This caused the Perseus crew to note that while he is cruel, he is strangely intellectual about such a topic. Minami correctly describes him, as "selfish, strong as an ox, and calculating to boot" with Kirisame adding on that he is "the last person you'd want to make as an enemy, but a surprisingly reliable ally.[9]

In battle, he lives for the thrill, as seen when he fought against Hyoga who he found to be a worthy adversary. Even after being defeated, he showed himself to be a good sport and even asked his victorious opponent to give him lessons.[10] He will also show respect to fellow warriors, as seen when he complimented Matsukaze for holding off the grenades.

Abilities and Skills

Moz is a highly competent fighter, serving as one of the two greatest warriors of the Petrification Kingdom.

  • Enhanced Strength: He was able to easily throw aside five men (including Oarashi) with his strength alone, and was able to effortlessly overwhelm Kohaku with his skillful spearman-ship (Although she was not armed with her typical weapons at the time.) He also defeated Kinro, Magma, and Nikki in one blow each. He and Kirisame are noted to be the strongest warriors of the Kingdom of Petrification. The true depths of his strength are shown when he lasted very long against Hyoga before he was defeated. He could hunt and kill large American Alligators with help from the others.[11] Moz also defeated several members of Stanley's military unit, despite their years of intense training.[9]
  • Stealth Prowess: Moz was able to sneak up on Senku and his friends. Even with Ukyo's superlative hearing, he snuck up on them without detection.
  • Intelligence: Moz was able to deduce that Kohaku was one of the intruders, although he chose to withhold this information, due to his personal interests. He also knew that the military unit led by Stanley needed more people for the castle and reminded them of that as a way of stopping them from attacking.[9]
  • Spear Master: Moz is a spear-handling master, using his skill, he was able to defeat several warriors of the Petrification Kingdom, such as Oarashi. He was even able to overwhelm Hyoga until the latter was able to modify Kinro's spear into that of Kudayari spear, and defeat him with his Kan style. During the time in America, Moz has learned some of the Kan style and defeat some of Stanley's military unit with it. He noted on how far his skill got with actual training, describing it as incredible.[9]
