Marshall D. Teach, better known as Blackbeard, is the captain of the Blackbeard Pirates and is one of the primary antagonists in One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2. He was once a member of the Whitebeard Pirates' second division, but defected after murdering a fellow crew member for his Devil Fruit, the Dark-Dark Fruit. Like most characters in One Piece, he has a distinctive laughter pattern ("Zehahahaha!").
The Straw Hat Pirates first encounter Blackbeard at Mock Town when he hears that the Sky Islands exist and boasts how the pirate's dreams will never cease. He then tries to capture Luffy at Mock Town, but is driven out.
Later, after a brutal fight, Blackbeard is made a Warlord of the Sea after for defeating and capturing Portgas D. Ace.
Players can unlock him in the third game's Dream Log Mode.
Blackbeard's personality seems to be a strange mix of courage and cowardice; strategy, and stupidity. While at times his character looks strong and fearsome, in others he will seem weak and ridiculous. He is apparently very deceptive, joining the Shichibukai in an elaborate and convoluted fashion for the sole reason of gaining access to Impel Down in order to find new crew mates and later resigning from it in front of the fleet admiral himself saying that he does not need it anymore. He is also exceedingly power-hungry and greedy, aiming to become the next Pirate King.
Perhaps because of his strong belief in fate, Blackbeard is highly amoral. He believes that there is no inherent "good" nor "evil" in the world. He is also patient and conniving, having spent decades on Whitebeard's ship just to get his hands on the Devil Fruit he wanted, before killing his crew mate and leaving the crew.

- R1 (Special Skill):
Even without his Devil Fruit, Teach proves to be a very competent fighter, utilizing the three flintlock pistols at his belt along with his great physical strength. His Devil Fruit ability gives him the ability to manipulate gravity, giving him the ability to suck in and hold an infinitive amount of items in a dark void and expel them out. These include other Devil Fruit powers, effectively nullifying other Devil Fruits with his touch. It also seems to have been this power which allowed him to steal Whitebeard's Quake-Quake Fruit powers and use them for himself later on. It is this quality which makes him the only character in Pirate Warriors 2 aside from the Straw Hat Pirates to have two playable incarnations; one with only the Dark-Dark Fruit powers, and the other with both the Dark-Dark and Quake-Quake Fruit powers.
