Straw Hat Pirates

Straw Hat Pirates

From left to right: Nico Robin ; Usopp (as Sogeking) ; Roronoa Zoro ; Monkey D. Luffy ; Sanji ; Tony Tony Chopper ; Nami ; Franky


In the beginning of the manga, Luffy claimed that he wanted at least
10 people to join his crew before entering the Grand Line. This was
changed after Usopp told Luffy that after "the chef" joined them, they
would rescue Nami and go to the Grand Line with just 5 people. New
members have joined since then, but it has yet to be seen whether there
will be 10 or more in all. Luffy also claimed in the beginning of the
manga, that he will gather a crew strong enough to surpass his
childhood hero Red-Haired Shanks.
Luffy doesn't seem to mind if someone he wants to recruit has a
profession or not, asking anyone who is interesting or allowing anyone
who wants to join to become a crew member. He allows Usopp to join, and
later on names him the team's sniper, and considered Vivi a member even
though she has no profession. He also offered Gaimon
the chance to join his crew (which Gaimon tearfully turned down) when
Gaimon said he had to look after the island. He then asked Crocus at
Reverse Mountain to be the ship's doctor but declined the offer saying
he was too old to be chasing youngsters around. Luffy has also offered
a skeleton named Brook
to join the crew when they go into the Florian Triangle. Brook
eventually declined joining after initially accepting. Later in
Thriller Bark, Luffy offered a talking tree entry into his crew in
Chapter 447, though this is probably more of a gag (even though Luffy
was probably being serious).
When Luffy asks someone to join his crew, it is often met with
reluctance. People like Dr. Kureha declined, yet Luffy continued to
insist regardless. Zoro, Nami, Sanji, Chopper, and Franky were all
resistant to join the Straw Hat Crew but eventually changed their minds
and joined anyways.
A running theme seems to be that Luffy will ask someone to join his
crew due to their skills and in the end someone close to them will join
instead (Examples: Sanji's boss Zeff, Chopper's teacher Dr. Kureha and
Franky's old friend Iceburg)
Despite this, the people who eventually become Straw Hat members all
have their unique above-average fighting abilities and at least one
talent in which they are virtually perfect in.

Departure from Crew

If a Straw Hat crew member leaves the crew without Luffy's
permission, Luffy becomes adamant in getting them back. So far only
Robin, Nami, and Usopp have tried to leave the crew, but all eventually
came back and rejoined. Usopp was the only one to willingly leave while
Robin and Nami were blackmailed into doing so. Usopp was also the only
crew member to have Luffy's permission to leave, though that permission
came quite bitterly after a harsh fight between the two; he was allowed
back after a tearful apology to the Straw Hats.

Current Crew Members


"Straw Hat" Luffy currently holds a 300,000,000

Belli bounty on his head. He started out with a 30,000,000 Belli bounty
after beating Buggy, Don Krieg, and Arlong back in the East Blue Saga.
His bounty rose to 100,000,000 Belli after defeating Sir Crocodile of
the Shichibukai, in the Alabasta Arc. After defeating Rob Lucci of CP9 and declaring war on the World Government, his bounty tripled to become 300,000,000 Belli. He currently holds the third highest revealed bounty in the series: Gecko Moria and Donquixote Doflamingo have the two highest with 320,000,000 and 340,000,000, respectively. He is highly known by the Marines and is one of the most wanted criminals in the show.
Most of Luffy's enemies tend to be the leader of their enemies or the most powerful member, such as Arlong, Sir Crocodile, Rob Lucci, and most recently Gecko Moria.
Luffy's dream is to become the Pirate King by finding One
Piece, the ultimate treasure left behind by the late Gol D. Roger, and
raise a "super-crew" to back him up.

First Mate/Swordsman

"Pirate Hunter" Roronoa Zoro currently holds a 120,000,000
Belli bounty, for his aid in the destruction of Enies Lobby. Before
that, he had a 60,000,000 Belli bounty on his head for defeating about
100 bounty hunters at Whisky Peak, and for defeating the Baroque Works
agent Mr. 1 (a.k.a. Das Bones).
Zoro was the first of Luffy's pirates and takes his role of first
mate very seriously. He will bolster Luffy when his captain wavers and
challenges him if he believes Luffy is making a decision that will hurt
his position as captain, his dream, or the crew. One example of this is
when he threatens to leave the crew if Luffy accepts Usopp back without
an apology being given after the sharpshooter abandoned them. Usopp had
defied Luffy's authority as captain and simply allowing him back
without acknowledging this would have undermined Luffy's authority and
caused the crew to doubt his ability to lead.
Zoro's dream, shared with Kuina, is to become the world's greatest swordsman.[2]
To fulfill this dream, he must surpass every swordsman in the world,
and intends to defeat the world's current greatest swordsman Mihawk.


"Catburglar" Nami currently holds a 16,000,000
Belli bounty for aiding in the assault on Enies Lobby. She was the only
Straw Hat to complain about getting a bounty, though she said, "At
least my picture is cute." It is also revealed that the photographer
for her picture said he was a W7 reporter and they would pay her,
causing her to willingly pose for the photo.
Nami's enemies, shown so far, have mainly been females, like Ms.
Doublefinger and, most recently, Kalifa. They commonly do not take her
seriously, allowing her to outwit and defeat them.
Nami's dream is to draw a map of the entire world.[3]
She has already mapped all the areas that she has traveled, and it is
possible that she will create a world map once the story is over.


"King of Snipers" Sogeking, otherwise known under his real name of Usopp, currently holds a 30,000,000
Belli bounty (the same as Luffy's first bounty). His bounty was
recorded as "Sogeking" because Usopp did not use his real name during
the assault on Enies Lobby, although his disguise was obvious enough
that anyone (except Luffy and Chopper) who had seen him before knew
that he was Sogeking. His bounty is for participating in the attack on
Enies Lobby, shooting the World Government flag, and sniping CP9's
Spandam and his group of Marine footsoldiers while he tried to drag
Robin to Impel Down. Usopp's marksman skills were clearly shown here,
as he was sniping Marines on the Bridge of Hesitation from farther than
any of their weapons could reach.
Though having only a few number of important fights, his enemies tend to have a projectile-based theme, like Choo or the Mr. 4 team as well as Perona.
His fights also tend to have Usopp moving around a lot, including
spending a small portion of his fight with Choo running, Ms.
MerryChristmas dragging Usopp around with her "Molehill Highway" attack
and chasing after Perona when she tried to flee their battle.
Usopp will also almost say or do something honourable or brave. This
includes continuing to fight Choo even after Choo thought he was dead,
giving a speech about Luffy even while enduring the "Molehill Highway"
attack and continuing to fight Perona because he is the only one who
can, despite how scared he is of her powers.
Usopp's dream is to become a brave warrior of the sea like his father, Yasopp,[4] who is a member of Shanks' Red Haired Pirate Crew. After the Little Garden arc, he also developed a secondary dream to visit Elbaf and see the warrior giants he idolizes.[5]


"Black Leg" Sanji currently holds a 77,000,000
Belli bounty for participating in the attack on Enies Lobby. On a side
note, the Marines failed to take a proper photo (the photographer
forgot to remove the lens cap on the camera) and had to use an ugly
composite sketch of him, continuing the running gag of him not being
Sanji's enemies are usually those with a unique style of martial arts, such as Kuroobi with his Fishman Karate, Mr. 2 with his Okama Kenpo, Wanze with his Ramen Kenpo, and Jyabura
with his Tekkai Kenpo. His enemies are typically almost on par with
Zoro's in terms of power, though in most cases they are considered
lower than Zoro's.
Sanji's dream, shared with Zeff, is to find the All Blue, a legendary ocean.[6] It is assumed to be in the Grand Line,
and waters from all over the four seas gather there, bringing fish from
all over the globe, ideal for chefs who wish to gather ingredients.
When he found out that Kokoro
was a mermaid, he felt anguish that his dream of meeting beautiful
mermaids was ruined. He was recently revealed to have the dream of
consuming the Suke Suke no Mi (invisibility fruit), though this dream
was ended by Absalom's eating the fruit. He has, however, stated that he no longer has a connection to that dream, due to Absalom's cowardice.


"Cotton Candy Lover" Tony Tony Chopper currently holds a 50
Belli bounty because he was mistaken to be the Straw Hats' "pet" rather
than an actual crew member and fighter. Chopper was upset when he saw
his wanted poster, shouting that he fought like a man during Enies
Lobby and deserved to be treated as such. This is the smallest bounty
ever seen in the series, with the second smallest (Alvida's) being one
hundred thousand times that amount at 5 million.
Most of Chopper's fights have him going against physically big enemies who also use their amazing talents as weapons, like Chessmarimo
who had phenomenal archery skills, Kumadori, who could control every
part of his body, or Dr. Hogback, who uses the zombies he created to
fight for him.
Chopper's dream is to travel across the world, exploring with his friends and expanding his horizons. He also has an ambition to create/find a Panacea and become a doctor who can cure any disease - even the one held by an entire country.


"Demon Child" Nico Robin currently has an 80,000,000
Belli bounty. She previously held a 79,000,000 Belli bounty from over
20 years ago, when she was eight. The World Government claimed the
bounty was because she had sunk 6 Marine ships, yet in the Enies Lobby
arc it is revealed as nothing more than a lie from the government, and
the real reason behind her bounty is because of her ability to read
Poneglyphs. The 6 ships she was accused of destroying were actually
destroyed by Jaguar D. Saulo
during the Buster Call on Ohara while he was trying to protect her. Her
extremely small, and seemingly unneeded bounty raise (From 79,000,000
to 80,000,000) was so the World Government would have an excuse to
update her wanted poster picture which, until the raise, was still of
her 8-year old self.
So far, Robin has yet to have shown a true pattern in the enemies
she faces, though those she has fought have greatly underestimated her
and her powers. Several of her opponents are generally huge
monster-like beings such as enforcer Yama and the massive spider-monkey
Robin's dream is to find the Rio Poneglyph which tells the True History, continuing the research of her mother, Nico Olvia, and her old teacher and mentor, Professor Clover.
She nearly did so when she found Shandora in the upper yard, but it
turned out that Gol D. Roger and his crew had already taken it 20 years
ago. She thinks it is at Raftel, the location of One Piece.


"Cyborg" Franky currently holds a 44,000,000
Belli bounty. Franky received the bounty for helping the Straw Hats at
Enies Lobby, as well as destroying the blueprints to the ancient
weapon, Pluton.
As shown so far in the Enies Lobby arc, Franky's opponents (Nero and
Fukuro), used superior speed to get the upper hand on him. Thus Franky
had to grapple his speedy opponents and finish them with a powerful
blow. One of Franky's more recent enemies was hokkeyru, who used
superior speed as well.
Franky's dream is to create and travel on a dream ship that
would experience countless battles and overcome extreme hardships to
reach the end of the Grand Line. He has created the ship, named Thousand Sunny,
and is sailing on it with the Straw Hats. It's his task to keep it in
good condition. Another dream (or goal) he had was to get back at Spandam
for framing his mentor Tom and having Tom executed. And with the help
of the Straw Hats, Franky was able to do this by crushing Spandam with
his own pet elephant Funk Freed.

everything about one piece

One Piece (ワンピース, Wan Pīsu?) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda with an anime adaptation. The series focuses on a ragtag crew of heroic pirates called the Straw Hat Pirates, formed and led by a captain named Monkey D. Luffy. Luffy's greatest ambition is to obtain the world's ultimate treasure, One Piece, and become the Pirate King.

Growth and popularity

The One Piece manga began its serial run in issue #34 of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on August 4, 1997, while the anime adaptation produced by Toei Animation premiered on Fuji TV on October 20, 1999.

Eiichiro Oda originally planned One Piece to last five years,
and he had already planned out the ending, but he found himself
enjoying the story too much to end it in that amount of time, and now
has no idea how long it will take to reach that point.[1] Nevertheless, the author states (as of July 2007)
that the ending is still the one he had decided on from the beginning,
and he is committed to seeing it through to the end, no matter how many
years it takes.[2]

One Piece is the third highest selling manga in the history of Weekly Shonen Jump,[3] (behind Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo [Kochi Kame] and Dragon Ball) and is currently their most acclaimed and all-time third-best-selling title in Japan. The manga is so well-liked that it is the first to increase the sales of Weekly Shonen Jump in eleven years.[4] Volume 25 of One Piece
holds a manga sales record in Japan, with 2,630,000 units sold in its
first printing alone; as of Volume 46, the series has sold over
140,000,000 copies domestically, and is the fastest manga to reach
sales of 100,000,000.[2]

Viz translation

The One Piece manga, written and illustrated Eiichiro Oda, is originally published by Shueisha in Japanese for sale in Japan. In the west, the English adaptation is published and distributed for sale in North America and Australia by VIZ Media in both the form of the American Shonen Jump magazine and graphic novels. The first artbook, Color Walk 1 has also been released in English. The second and third books have yet to be released in North America.


As the success of One Piece rose within its serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump,
it would soon reach an even larger audience through the medium of
television, being adapted into an animated series. That television
series (a largely faithful adaptation of the manga) debuted in 1999,
but animated One Piece actually had its origins one year earlier with an OVA.
It was translated into English and brought over the pacific in 2004,
when it debuted on 4Kids TV. Since then, it has migrated to Cartoon
Network's Toonami block.


Main article: List of One Piece episodes

As of January 13, 2008, One Piece has had a total of 338 TV episodes. Episodes from 207 onwards have been broadcast in high-definition at 720p resolution, in addition to standard definition.

Though most anime series air a new episode every week, the most recent One Piece episodes air at an average of four episodes a month or, in some cases, air as several back-to-back episodes followed by a break of several weeks.

In the fall of 2006, Toei Animation
produced a series of five recap episodes, retelling the back stories of
each of the Straw Hat crew members using clips from old episodes, tied
into the current storyline by framing the recaps as flashbacks each of
the characters were having just before storming the Tower of Justice.
The recaps also marked a change in the series' time slot.


Since the debut of the series on television, Toei Animation has also produced nine One Piece feature films, released each spring since the year 2000.
In typical fashion for movies based on serialized manga, the films
feature self-contained, completely original plots with animation of
higher quality than what the weekly anime allows for. Additionally,
three of these movies have had special features, showcasing the
characters engaged in various activities unrelated to the series
(specifically dancing, playing soccer, and playing baseball. These
movies, and their attached features, are as follows:

    Every year or two, a one-hour special episode is aired in place of a normal episode.

    1. 'Adventure in the Ocean's Navel (aired after Episode 53) -
      The Straw Hats encounter a city in the middle of a whirlpool, called
      the Ocean's Navel, that is being destroyed by giant monsters. These
      monsters supposedly protect a treasure capable of granting wishes, but
      in the process of defeating these guardians, the crew ends up releasing
      another evil.
    2. Open Upon the Great Sea! A Father's Huge, HUGE Dream! (aired
      after Episode 149) - The crew comes across three children and two

    3. Protect it! The Last Great Performance (aired after Episode
      174) - It is the last performance of a great actor and playwright, but
      several actors suddenly quit. The Straw Hats offer to take their
      places. The quitting actors turns out to be more than a coincidence
      when they meet a Marine with a grudge against the playwright.
    4. The Detective Memoirs of Chief Straw Hat Luffy (aired after Episode 253) - In an alternate reality world that resembles Edo Period
      Japan, Luffy acts as a member of the police. This is made up of two
      adventures: in the first, Buggy makes trouble in the town; in the
      second, a mysterious girl named Vivi appears. This special contains
      several cameos from characters throughout the entire series.
    5. Boss Luffy Returns! A Dream or Reality Lottery Trouble (Although it continues the story of Special #4, isn't considered as Special #5, but instead Episode 291 by the official count)

    7. The Criminal is Boss Luffy? Chase the Vanished Great Sakura Tree
      (Considered as Special #5, although this is episode 303 with the
      addition of Jpop singers "Tackey and Tsubasa" in the opening theme
      song.) Similar to Detective Memoirs of Straw Hat Luffy, this takes
      place in an alternate reality in feudal Japan with cameos of previous
      characters. Luffy and the others are samurai living in a feudal
      Japanese town. The town's giant Sakura tree is stolen, and Luffy goes
      to search for it.
    8. Chopperman Departs! Protect the TV Station by the Shore - Continuing from the Chopperman side comic, the reindeer hero fights against Usodabada after he takes over a local TV station.

    English adaptations

    Odex English version

    In Singapore, the anime is licensed by Odex,
    which produces its English dub. It contains fewer edits to names and
    animation with most if not all reference to blood, violence and death
    being left unedited. However, Luffy and Sanji's names are pronounced
    incorrectly; Luffy's is pronounced similarly to the word "fluffy"
    (which sounds like "La-fee" as opposed to "Loof-y"), and Sanji's name
    is pronounced with the "an" sounding similar to how it would be used in
    the word "sand" ("San-gee" as opposed to "Sahn-ji").

    4Kids English version

    The anime was adapted by 4Kids Entertainment and previously shown on Cartoon Network's Toonami, and "reruns" are airing on their online broadband service Toonami Jetstream in the United States and on networks in many other English-speaking countries around the world. The 4Kids version debuted in the US on the Fox network as part of the Fox Box block (now called 4Kids TV) on September 18, 2004. This version of the show varied considerably from the original Japanese series.[1]
    In an attempt to appeal to their target audience, 4kids editted the
    series considerably to make it more appropriate for children's
    television. 4Kids announced in December 2006 that they had cancelled
    production of their dub.
    As of September 2006, 104 English-dubbed episodes have been produced from the first 143 Japanese episodes of One Piece;[2] and a variety of sources explain that 4Kids had dropped the license afterwards, such as Anime Newtype Magazine.[5] The anime's naming conventions are used in One Piece-related media in North America, such as the English version of the fighting game One Piece Grand Battle for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Gamecube.

    FUNimation English version

    On April 12, 2007, FUNimation Entertainment announced it had acquired the license of One Piece and is currently producing the English version from episodes 144 onward, which premiered on Cartoon Network on September 29, 2007.
    FUNimation will also distribute the series in unedited bilingual DVD box sets, which will retail for US$49.98
    and contain 13 episodes each. The DVD box sets will also feature
    unedited video & English audio track. The unedited English language
    track will restore character and objects renamed in the dub to their
    original names. These changes were not made in the TV edit to allow
    continuity in the English broadcast of the TV series.
    At Anime Expo 2007, FUNimation announced that the DVDs will be officially released starting at episode 144 sometime in 2008.
    FUNimation also eventually plans to redub the first 143 episodes of the
    series and release them to DVD, however, currently, Viz still owns the
    distribution rights to them. [3]
    FUNimation has also said that they will release Movie 8 on DVD on
    February 19, 2008. They have also announced that they are working on
    the English Version of One Piece Unlimited Adventure (which will
    include all original playable characters and power ups as the Japanese
    version) and will be released on January 22nd, 2008.
