Sano formed his own crew in the South Blue, following a monk theme. Sano managed to gather quite a following, but comes to the Sabaody Archipelago with only his four strongest followers, Hearts, Ann, Zakat, and Lama. Sano has made a name for himself through lies and trickery amongst the marines, allowing him to gather a vast fortune which is an envy among the other rookies.
His crew has also made a name as the only crew to have never suffered a loss in battle due to their captain's devil fruit. His crew, through his trickster ways, has also caused numerous upstarts within the marine ranks causing panic and confusion.

|Holy Ring Pirates|
They are most known for dealing panic and destruction to marines and causing numerous marine casualities, though no records of civilian casualities have been known. Futhermore, the few who were at the achipelago were seemingly immune to the powerful Haki blast released by Doldred D. Swift, (Hearts suffered a severe nosebleed) a testament to their overall strength. In spite of their great potency, members seem to be over-confident as seen by Zakat, who was killed by marine forces.
They, like the other Big Time Rookies, were able to escape from the marine forces despite being badly injuried. After the year timeskip, it is evident that Duwong and his crew have risen their bounty, like most Big Time Rookies, and have established their own island in the New World.
Their ship seems to follow an angel theme. With the main mast resembling a giant cross, along with many decorations along the outside trim of the deck. There are three cannons on each side, each massive in size. There also seems to be decorative wings on the back. It has been coated with the Yarukiman resin, allowing it to submerge underwater by reducing it's bouyancy, and withstanding the water pressure of 10,000 meters.
- The Holy Ring Pirates are named after Duwong's signature staff, which has a ring on it.
- Each member resembles a holy figure in some way or another. Such as Zakat, resembling cats, who were considered gods in Egypt; Hearts having the prediction ability of angels, and Duwong of japanese priests, such as using sutras.
- Their ship is the only one of the Big Time Rookies that supposedly can also fly too.
