Normally people tend to choose characters like Luffy, Zoro, Sanji or Nico Robin when it comes to “his favorite mugiwaras”. However, I know perfectly well that there are many fans of one piece out there they have Usopp in very high esteem, and I find it most understandable, since he is an individual who more than once starred in truly vibrant scenes.
As with his peers, Usopp is a member of the Straw Hat Gang who is surrounded by fun facts.. I am convinced that most people do not know this information about him, and that is why I think it may be interesting to share some of its most fascinating details. Let’s go there!
A classic in the ‘Wanted’ posters
Usopp it was younot one of the first mugiwara to appear on a ‘Wanted’ poster, however his true face did not appear until well after the famous timeskip. This character debuted in first luffy poster (walking out backwards) and then in the zoro’s first (protruding his nose and a hook that he used to imitate Crocodile).
He did not star in his own reward until after Water Seven, although he did do so under the identity of Sogeking and in the photograph he appears with his classic mask. Usopp’s real face was not seen on a billboard until the end of the Dressrosa arc, when he got a large bounty in the name of GOD USOPP.
Mom and Dad
Throughout One Piece we have been told the past of all the members of the straw hat gang, and in almost all of them the maternal and paternal figures played a crucial role. Did you know that Usopp and Sanji are the only people whose biological parents we know?
In the case of Usopp it was revealed to us very quickly that his father is Yasopp (Shanks’ gang shooter) and that his mother, banchinaShe died after falling seriously ill.
the only african
At the time Eiichiro Oda, the author of One Piece, revealed the nationalities that the mugiwaras would present if they existed in the real world. Zoro would be Japanese, Nami Swedish, Luffy Brazilian, but what about Usopp?
To the surprise of many Oda-sensei indicated that it would be an African character, and many fans believe that the specific country would be South Africa (or at least that’s what I’ve read somewhere). What do you think?
lies that come true
Do you remember that at the beginning of One Piece Usopp used to tell him all kinds of lies and made up stories to her friend Kaya? Well, it turns out that over time almost all of them have ended up becoming real.
- Usopp said that he defeated a giant mole: later beat miss merry christmas in Alabasta ✅
- Usopp commented that he saw a dragon and a cerberus: years later a Cerberus was found in Thriller Bank and a Dragon in Punk Hazard✅
- Usopp claimed that he had 8,000 subordinates: in Dressrosa he gets thousands of pirates (those who were turned into toys) to follow him✅
a liar’s name
Another curious fact about Usopp is found directly in his own name. Japanese artists often use many puns when naming their characters. If we remove the double pe from the Usopp term, we are left with “Use“, a word that in Japanese means “Lie“.
In Spain we converted him to Islam
When making a dubbing it is not at all strange that from time to time they commit localization/translation errors, but with Usopp something quite striking happened. In the Spanish version of the anime (Spanish from Spain), Usopp is called Usuff, has an Arabic accent and even uses Islamic expressions What “I do not believe in any other God than Allah, he is great and merciful”.
Usopp and his “similarity” to Sandshrew
No, I’m not crazy. It makes sense to compare Usopp to the Pokemon Sandshrew for two very simple reasons. Once Oda was asked what animals represent each and every one of the Straw Hats, and interestingly, Usopp got the armadillo.
In addition to this, it was revealed that the color that represents it is the yellow. Armadillo and yellow? Aren’t those the colors of Sandshrew? Curious…
I wouldn’t want to smell like him
Oda-sensei also commented in due course that Usopp sometimes gives off a body odor reminiscent of gunpowder and rust. This is because he is always messing around with metallic materials to create new gadgets that he can use in battle or give to his partner Nami.
Let us remember that Usopp was in charge of creating the powerful weapons of the navigator.
I hope you found these curiosities interesting. Do you know any that I have left in the inkwell?
