Crystal Skulls are needed to Super-Evolve a character. They belong to the Evolver Class.
WARNING: Be sure to understand the difference between skulls needed for 5+ Straw Hats and skulls needed for 6+ legends. They are NOT the same: legend skulls CAN NOT be used to evolve story Straw Hats and vice versa. You want to understand that before you make a costly mistake. Two common newbie mistakes is: buying a Red Legend Skull from the Bazaar and trying to use it on G2 (it won't work), or feeding skulls to characters through the power up menu (they are evolve materials, using them in the power up screen just wastes them!). Please read this guide and attached FAQ carefully.
A Crystal Skull being dropped has a special rainbow-blueish chest as shown in the screenshot below:
Crystal Skull LocationsEdit
Crystal Skulls can only be found in specific locations:
Straw Hats SkullsEdit
Germa 66 SkullsEdit
Skulls for evolving Judge and RR Germa units were made available in the limited time Germa Resurrection Plan in Oct'18. There will likely be available again one way or another, but it may be few more months before this happens.
- Note1: Legend skulls work for all legends of a given color, but only certain legends can be Super-Evolved. See the list below for who can be super evolved. If you don't see Legend X there, it may be months before they get this ability.
- Note2: You can obtain legend skulls from Invasions (rare drop) or from the Bazaar for 10,000 training points. Sometimes some skulls are discounted to 7,500 points.
Most legends require only one skull to be Super-Evolved, however, Monkey D. Luffy Gear Four: Bounceman needs both a QCK and a PSY skull.
Crimson Crystal Skull: Can be bought in Rayleigh's Bazaar for 10 000 points, or found during Ambushes. Needed for STR legends, such as:
Jade Crystal Skull: Can be bought in Rayleigh's Bazaar for 10 000 points, or found during Ambushes. Needed for DEX legends such as:
Azure Crystal Skull: Can be bought in Rayleigh's Bazaar for 10 000 points, or found during Ambushes. Needed for QCK legends such as:
Amber Crystal Skull: Can be bought in Rayleigh's Bazaar for 10 000 points, or found during Ambushes. Needed for PSY legends such as:
Onyx Crystal Skull: Can be bought in Rayleigh's Bazaar for 10 000 points, or found during Ambushes. Needed for INT legends such as:

Character specific skullsEdit
Since October 2018, non-Straw Hat characters began to require crystal skulls specific to that unit, which can be farmed on certain extra island events that drop those specific skulls.
Units with character specific Crystal SkullsEdit
Since October, 2018:
- legend Judge
- RR Ichiji
- RR Niji
- RR Yonji
- RR Reiju
- Q: What can I do with a duplicate skull?
- A: -If they're Strawhat Skulls, there is little to no use for them. It is possible that they will be given added functionality in the future
-If they're Legend Skulls (from ambushes), keep them in case you pull a Legend, since any given legend could receive a Super-Evolution in the future. Legend Skulls are color coded, so red skull will work for all legends that are STR when super-evolved (WB, Lucci, Akainu, Crocodile, etc.) when those legends get a 6+ Super Evolution.
- Q: What is the drop rate?
- A: If someone collects better data, this section will be updated (if you have better data, feel free to do it yourself!). For now, the guesstimate for story Straw Hat skull drops is 'similar to the story character' chance, which is unknown but estimated at <10% or (much) less. For ambushes, it seems that global drop rate is 10%, and Japan is said to be 20%. Ambush chances at 60 stamina are around 35%. Source
- Q: We have a choice of one free Strawhat-skull from a selection. Which should I chose?
- A: Whichever one works best for you. The general consensus is that of the 5+ straw hats, Luffy and Zoro see the most play (With Luffy being a great F2P captain), Brook, Usopp, Chopper and Sanji are ok, while Nami and Franky are considered the least useful.
- Q: Is a skull of a single color (ex. DEX'DEX') good for both Straw Hat and Legends?
- A: No, they are different. Straw Hats skulls drop at 3D2Y story island, are not obtainable from Bazaar, and work only for Straw Hats and not for Legends. And vice versa - Legend Skulls drop from Ambushes, are obtainable from Bazaar, don't work on Straw Hats but work on Legends. In other words, Green Skull for Legend Zoro is not the same as a Green Skull for Story Zoro.
- Q: My Legend X doesn't have a Super Evolve option. Why?
- A: SE is generally available for older legends. Just wait, your legend will be super evolvable in few months.
- Q: Are super evolutions always superior to base forms?
- A: Generally, yes, but sometimes they are a sidegrade. Ex. G4 and TS Luffy are both very solid and you should ideally have both of them. Read character notes to figure out if it is advisable to SE your character, and whether you should keep the pre-SE version as well.
