So yeah, I created this to answer ANY question about OP, whether it's about the manga or the anime, so as long as it is objective. If it's subjective questions like what I think of Luffy's face or if Chopper looks cute to guys, I suggest creating a thread about that.

The reason why I made this is to stop random threads from popping up all the time, like should I get into One Piece blah blah. If you're asking about background music, please specify the episode, the part where the music starts, and where you watched the episode (as in provide a damn link).

If a mod would edit this I would be happy, I'm not good at organizing shit like this.

Anime







Manga








Characters







Fighting Styles









Devil Fruit





Common BGM


-played during Arlong Arc
- popularized during Enies Lobby Arc
- plays during the Celestial Dragon punch
- when the crew wins a fight collectively
- when Shanks invited Mihawk to drink
- Supernova introduction theme
- filler fights, or the infamous bar fight in Movie 4
- Shanks stops the war
- Shanks theme
- Impel Down's "... in the previous episode, Luffy .."
- Crocodile's defeat
- CP9 fights
- One Piece in 6 Minutes song (I know it's not really One Piece but when someone asks you the music of the OP 6 min AMV just get this link)

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Does Luffy ever reach his goal?
A: We're halfway through the story dear. So obviously, no.

Q: Romance?
A: Oda mentioned that he wouldn't be doing romance, like in-depth Boy x Girl relationships. There are a few canon relationships in the manga though, and more than a few hints in the anime. But if you're talking about a man's romance, there are plenty!

Q: Should I skip Skypeia?
A: Why would you do that to yourself? Do not skip anything canon.

Q: Filler episodes I should know about?
A: Look at the top of this page and click Episode Guide. You should be set for life.

Q: Why is Vivi called Bebe in the manga?
A: Around 2004-5 when the manga was first scanned, scanlation groups didn't know the correct romanization of the names. Until Oda came out with 'Vivi', the groups used Bebe, Bibi, BB. Same goes for Loofy, Roofy.

Q: Early scans aren't high quality!
A: Go ask yourself why you're so ignorant.

Q: Fairy Tail looks too much like One Piece!
A: Here's the thing. One Piece came MUCH earlier, the authors AREN'T the same, and NO Hiro Mashima isn't Oda's understudy.

Q: Where can I find the episodes?
A: If you're North American or Canadian, watch at onepieceofficial.com but if you aren't, watchop.com.

Q: Luffy looks lame with his gum gum nonsense.
A: An orange jumpsuit-wearing ninja isn't?

Q: They don't act like pirates. Real pirates act like the ones on POTC.
A: Newsflash, we only see the Strawhats. There are millions of other pirates out there.

Q: How will they get back from Raftel?
A: Hell should I know.

Q: Is One Piece good?
A: It's not good, it's great. You need to be reading/watching it NOW.​

All the other unimportant facts, you just ask.

Hmm, why does it seem like no one dies in One Piece, except of course for Ace and Whitebeard...even the bird guy survived, like wtf how?
Oda mentioned in an SBS addressing exactly that. I don't recall everything word for word, but he said that losing your dream is far more agonizing and painful than losing your life. In death, you escape responsibility. In having your dreams shattered, you are alive to see your dreams, your hard work crumble with your own eyes.

Or something like that.

Weren't you paying attention to any of the main characters past? Olvia, Bellemere, Saul, Rouge, Kuina, Banchina, Hiluluk... just what the hell are you talking about? And what do you think Tom went to do to Enies Lobby? Drink tea? What about Brook's crew? And Moria's old crew? And Sabo?

Ohara civilians and random nameless marines count as people too, go see Akainu for that... Also, newsflash! Bellamy died, in case you couldn't tell! So, people die in One Piece. Got it? :D

Chill, he mean't that no villains or current characters have been confirmed dead(excluding Ace, WB, Kaku and Oars). And Luffy didn't kill Bellamy, just knocked him into next year. Enel didn't even die, and Arlong and Lucci are probably still out there to. As said above, the fact that they all got pwned by Luffy is Oda's substitution for death.

I am sorry if I got this wrong, but when and where did Kaku die?? Ain't Kaku the CP9 giraffe guy from Eneis Lobby??

Well then again, him dying wasn't confirmed either, but do you honestly think he survived Zoro's Asura Ichibugin? I don't think Zoro would have said "sorry" if he knew Kaku was still alive.

I have my doubts regarding that. Reading manga made me feel that Oda just wanted to end few characters (mostly opponents) by silencing them into sleep rather than making sure that they are dead. It leaves a thin scope of probability for the character to reappear at another time.

But that's the way I feel about Oda and the way he completes an arc. Correct me if I am wrong!! But the only main antagonist who is still in running after the end of an arc is ENEL so far. But we know last that he went for the moon which leaves a possibility of him not coming back.
