|~ Vinsmoke Judge to Sanji|
Vinsmoke Judge (ヴィンスモーク・ジャッジ Vinsumōku Jajji) is the king of the Germa Kingdom, patriarch of the Vinsmoke Family and supreme commander of its military branch and underworld army known as Germa 66 (pronounced Germa double six). He is the father of Sanji, one of the main characters and a member of the Straw Hat Pirates. He, along with his family and organization, is one of the main antagonists of the Totto Land arc from the Yonko saga.
Judge is a tall middle-aged man who has long light-colored hair and dark colored pointed mustache. He wears dark colored robe with the numbers 66 on it with a cape gloves, light-colored pants, and boots.
Vinsmoke Judge is adamant in re-conquering North Blue. He values gaining power over the territory under his powerful army, Germa 66. He is willing to kill his own men without hesitation because they were meant to lay their lives for the Vinsmoke Family. He has confidence in all of his sons' talents and abilities with the exception of Sanji who he views as weak. Unlike his sons and his daughter, Reiju, Judge views Sanji as a disposable pawn to further his goals caring little for his safety as he had Reiju place exploding bracelets on his wrists to keep him under his control.
In the past, Vinsmoke Judge wanted to conquer the North Blue. At some point, Sanji left his family at a young age. Vinsmoke Judge decided to track him down throughout the years. Vinsmoke Judge also manipulated Sanji's bounty to change it to "Only Alive" as a way to retrieve him safely. Vinsmoke Judge masterminded a plan to get Sanji to marry into Big Mom's family in order to get enough power from her so that he could conquer the North Blue.
While Sanji was having a conversation with Reiju in the Germa Kingdom, Vinsmoke Judge appeared. Sanji told him immediately that he does not want anything to with the upcoming wedding or him as he does not consider him his father. Vinsmoke Judge decided that he would fight Sanji so that they could end their issues. While fighting Sanji, Judge eventually won using one of his men as a shield to deflect one of Sanji's attack. After the battle, Reiju placed explosive bracelets on Sanji's wrists informing him that he will be going through with the marriage regardless of his own intentions. Judge warned him that if he tries to escape the wedding that his hands will blow up.
When Ichiji and Niji returned from their mission on Broc Coli island, they whole family reunited in the Germa 66 base. Sanji and Niji got into an argument over Niji's behavior and Sanji exclaimed his disdain for his entire family. Judge warned Sanji to not act defiant because if he does he will have his men assassinate Red Leg Zeff (the man Sanji looks up to).
