  • Kaku's animal theme is the giraffe
  • He is one of the two only characters seen eating a devils fruit on screen that wasn't in a flashback
  • We have never seen Kaku without a cap on! Which is a shame, I bet he has cute hair underneath.
  • He's the only CP9 member to show some regret leaving Water 7.
  • He speaks using the Japanese suffix "-ja" which is commonley used by old men. This confuses Luffy and prompts him to ask how old Kaku is (chapter 325).
  • Many of the strawhats mistake Kaku for Ussop on account of their similar noses. Although, as Nami points out, Kaku's nose is square.
  • In fact, Kaku's unique nose is carried over in his giraffe/human form! (And he is made fun of because of this, LOL!)
  • As revieled in Volume 44 SBS, Kaku as a child liked to build model ships.
  • We are lead to believe that Kaku has curls under that hat of his ;)
  • Kaku is considered to be the second strongest CP9 Agent, following Rob Lucci by a difference of 1,800 Douriki.
  • Kaku is the one that woar the skull mask during the Water 7 arc.
  • Kaku's rivals are considered to be Jyabura and Roronoa Zoro.
  • During the CP9 Chapter Cover Mini Story, Kaku is seen in his full giraffe form acting as a slide to make money to pay for Lucci's operation.
  • His current attire consists of a beanie cap, striped polo shirt, and long dark pants.
  • He is the most prominent swordsman of CP9.
  • Kaku seems to enjoy figting as he is seen shouting, "This is fun!" during his encounter with Zoro in Enies Loby.
