Edward Newgate, better known as "Whitebeard", is one of the playable allies from the One Piece game series. He was the captain of the Whitebeard Pirates and once one of the Four Emperors. He is regarded as the world's strongest man and the only one to have rivaling and matched the King of the Pirates Gol D. Roger himself in combat.
He considers all of his crewmen as his sons and protects them with all his might. Eventually, after being badly wounded while fighting to save Ace from execution, he is killed by the traitor Blackbeard and his own pirate crew, the Blackbeard Pirates.
He is a very large and burly old man who fights with a very large naginata called Murakumogiri as his weapon and uses the ability of the Paramecia-type Devil Fruit: the "Tremor-Tremor Fruit" to create vibrations and quakes, allowing him to produce massive shockwaves powerful enough to cause earthquakes and tsunamis.
After Roger's death, he became one of the Four Emperors, and placed islands, like Fish-Man Island, under his protection. He considers all of his crewmen as his sons and protects them with all his might. After one of his subordinates, Ace, was captured and sentenced to death, Whitebeard came to save him and fought against in the Marines at their headquarters, Marineford.
Eventually, after being badly wounded while fighting to save Ace from execution, he is killed by the Blackbeard Pirates in the following Battle of Marineford.
