Bartholomew Kuma is a Shichibukai, formerly a Revolutionary with a bounty of 296,000,000. He was once feared as an extremely vicious pirate, earning himself the title, "Tyrant". He is a type of cyborg called "Pacifista" developed by Dr. Vegapunk. Once Vegapunk finished his modifications on Kuma, the Shichibukai was converted into the first complete Pacifista cyborg, with the serial PX-0, and figuratively died in the process.
Kuma is an enormous man, (22'6" tall). He is the tallest remaining Shichibukai (being one inch shorter than former member Gekko Moriah) and is usually seen carrying a Bible. His overall appearance resembles that of a bear, though there are a few key differences. His eyes are strangely covered by either a pair of glasses or clear-mirrored lenses. While initially he will give the impression of wearing glasses, it seems that, based on the Pacifistas that were destroyed, those are actually his own eyes.

Intelligence: Skilled and battle-hardened combatant, with extensive experience as Shichibukai, has mastered his own combat style. He has a vast Geographical knowledge, capable of accurately setting the destination of targets that he repels in order to send them to specific locations around the world. He should also have some extensive knowledge with science, due to his cybernetic enhancements, and his experience in being with Vegapunk--who is considered to be 500 years ahead the rest of the world by a technological stand-point. | After his brain was altered and he lost his sense of self, he is nothing more than a machine.
Weaknesses: Kuma literally cannot swim and becomes immobilized if more than half of his body is covered in water; he needs to use his hands to deflect attacks
- Nikyu Nikyu no Mi (Paw Pad Paw Pad Fruit): A Paramecia type Devil Fruit, this fruit allows the user to push anything they touch, and is physically represented as paw pads on the user's palm that seem to be permanently engraved into the user, as Kuma is always seen wearing gloves when his powers are not in use. The first and foremost strength of the fruit, as demonstrated by Kuma, is that the user is able to push practically anything they touch and send it flying at extremely high speeds. This includes both tangible materials such as people and objects, and intangible materials such as air, the ghosts generated by the Horo Horo no Mi user and the sensation of physical pain. This power offers the user an incredible advantage in battle, allowing them to deflect any physical attacks. They are also able to harness their abilities to perform offensive maneuvers, such as repelling the very air around them at the speed of light (Supposedly, Probably Hyperbole) One misconception about the powers of the Nikyu Nikyu no Mi is that it gives its user the ability to transport at will. This is incorrect, however. Rather than teleport, Kuma uses the awesome speed of his Devil Fruit power to propel himself across certain distances.
- Pado Hou: Kuma uses his Devil Fruit to push the air in front of his hands to send paw - shaped air bullets at enemies, that travel straight through them but still do damage. These attacks are said to move at the speed of light, but again that is often considered a hyperbole.
- Ursus Shock: Kuma gathers air with his palms and compresses it into a giant bubble which resembles a paw-print. Once the bubble is compact enough to fit within his hands, he releases the compressed air and sends it toward his opponent. The air quickly decompresses, causing a massive explosion in the form of a bear paw.
- Mouth Laser: Kuma fires a laser out of his mouth (Using cyborg technology based on Kizaru's Devil Fruit), the laser is powerful enough to melt steel.
