Officers can be split between those present at Marine Headquarters and those who serve in a base. Those who are in the Headquarters are considered the Elites of the marine forces. Ranks that are "Lieutenant" and above are usually trained at Marine Headquarters, but of course, there are exceptions such as Axe-hand Morgan and Nezumi.

Clothing

Marine officers have variations in what they wear depending on their ranks. Also, all marines are allowed to wield any weapon of their choosing, or what their most comfortable with. However, there are uniform guidelines set for the marines:

  • All new recruits are given a standard uniform that consists of a white, short-sleeved shirt emblazoned with the Marine emblem; a simplified gull with the word "MARINE" underneath it, on the back; a blue neckerchief; dark blue trousers; and a baseball cap also with the word "MARINE" across the front. All marines from Seaman and below wear this uniform
  • Once a marine reaches the petty officer rank, he or she can choose from a multitude of uniforms, including their personal clothes. The more traditional uniform is still also an option.
  • A marine at the ensign rank and above are allowed to wear the famous "Justice" coat. The coat is usually worn like a cape, and note that the sleeves are usually longer than the arms.
  • After reaching lieutenant commander, the marine usually wears a suit underneath their "Justice" coat. Although a suit is preferred, it is not mandatory.

Note that there are some exceptions. If the commanding officer is lenient, then the marine may be able to wear something other than the standard uniform. One example would be Jango and Fullbody who can wear their own clothes despite being seamen recruits.

Commissioned Marine Officer

Commissioned Marine Officers are all eleven ranks from Fleet Admiral to Ensign.

Fleet Admiral

"Fleet Admiral" (元帥 Gensui) is the highest rank within the Marines. He or she is the commander of the entire organization. The Fleet Admiral rank is one rank above Admiral but also one below World Government Commander-in-chief and Goroseior 5-elders. The Fleet Admiral along with the Admirals are the only people who are legally capable of initiating a Buster Call and giving permission for lower ranks to initiate the call. The very same applies to the revocation of the Shichibukai title.

The uniform wore by the Fleet Admiral is heavily stylized although the coat remains practically the same. The coat has pure gold epaulets and white cuffs although, this can be changed.
