Kyros appears to have killed Doflamingo in chapter 743. Is he really dead? I want Doflamingo to die, but he can't just die so quickly. There should be a fight between Doflamingo and Luffy.

    Knowing the series' track record for these sort of things, the odds are overwhelmingly in favor of Doflamingo being alive -- as for how, that's up for speculation, until the Chapter 744. We'll just have to wait and see.

  • If Doflamingo isn't dead, it's super, super exaggerating his power. Then, maybe 1000 buster call can't kill him with 1000 admirals.

  • @kapusanjay Doffy isn't dead, and tbh I don't think his power is exaggerated. He has many years of experience and is a pretty smart guy, so it makes sense for this 41yo guy to be at least this strong and have found ways to use his devil fruit to the max. Oct 30, 2014 at 17:23

Doflamingo-sama is alive and well, as expected.

In chapter 744, we can see his head saying

Fufufu... You guys really got me good. I'm head over heels in shock.

While in chapter 745, we can see that there are in fact two Doflamingos. The left one is the headless Doflamingo whose head Kyros severed, while the right one is (probably) the real Doflamingo.

Later in chapter 745, we can see Violet explaining what was going on.

It appears to be a marionette made of string!

Basically, since Doflamingo ate the String Fruit, he has become a string human. He can manipulate strings to the extent that he can create a marionette duplicate of himself and move it around as if it were him. It was this marionette that Kyros had severed the head of, not Doflamingo's real head. Therefore, he is still very much alive and completely unharmed

at that point at least.


It is now absolutely confirmed this attack didn't kill him, his head gives orders to his subordinates in the next chapter while Luffy shouts in surprise "Ah, Mingo is still alive!"

No explanation as to how he's alive though, should find out eventually.


People have come up with many theories of how Doflamingo was not killed by this attack. Here are the theories from Youtube. Some of them say that either Law used "Room", or maybe Doflamingo somehow reattached himself because of the Ito Ito no Mi's power. But as your question asks "Is Doflamingo really dead?", I will try to answer that.

Whenever a person is killed or dealt a severe blow, Oda always shows blood in that panel. In this case, we can clearly see that no blood has been spilled. Looking at the expression of Doflamingo's expression on the bottom panel, it doesn't look like he is dead. So we can assume that he is not dead.

On a sidenote, it would be very anti-climatic if Doflamingo died in just a single blow.

  • I was pretty sure that he was not dead . It has not been revealed how is he not dead but I think he can control his body with strings and attach himself back . But I don't knwo how that should work because he is a paramecia and not a logia . But we know Oda is known for some exceptions as in case of Blackbeard who has two devil fruits , maybe we don't know the full extent of ito ito no mi .

It's because his devil fruit Ito Ito no Mi can be used as a Marionette where he can create an exact clone of himself. I have just read the recent chapters, man, I love Oda!
