What’s your favourite laugh in One Piece? :-)

A curiosity in One Piece is represented by the strange laughters of the characters. These laughter patterns are often unique to individuals and may be based on their personalities or appearances.
Characters with a distinctive laugh may laugh in other ways as well; for example, Monkey D. Luffy has a distinctive “shishishi” chuckle, but when something is actually funny, he uses “hahaha” or similar instead.
Some characters with Devil Fruits have laughs similar to its name. For example, Edward Newgate’s laugh is “Gurararara”, after his Devil Fruit the Gura Gura no Mi.

How powerful are Sengoku and Garp in One Piece?

Monkey D. Garp and Sengoku are legendary marines, who were able to fight on par with the Pirate King, Gol D. Roger and his crew (including Dark King, Silvers Rayleigh). Seeing the fear and admiration that Rayleigh drew at Sabaody Archipelago, one can surmise that Roger was even more powerful. Garp and Sengoku were the only ones powerful enough to go head-to-head with Roger Pirates. They also stopped Shiki at Marineford while everybody else panicked. Garp defeated and nearly killed off Don Chinjao, whose bounty was worth around 500,000,000 Beli in his prime and was said to be able to split a continent with a headbutt. He claimed to have crushed eight mountains during his training to face Chinjao. They held Marco, Burgess and Blackbeard on equal footing. Sengoku actually held Garp down to prevent him from killing Akainu. So it goes to show that Garp can defeat Akainu.

Who cuts the Strawhats’ hair

D: The crew’s hair has to grow out on those long voyages, right? Does someone give the rest haircuts? Nami or Robin, perhaps? –I Want to be a Hairdresser

O: True, their hair does grow out. So who gives haircuts on the crew? Why, it’s Zoro. He turns on the rest and goes, “Tiger Trap!!” Just kidding!! What the hell, man?!! I’m gonnawhupyer behind!! Shuer yerpiehole!! Why, I oughtta!! The real answer is prolly Usopp or Robin. Maybe I should draw a heart-warmin’ picture of a haircut someday.

*The weird way in which Oda-sensei replied was because the previous reader asked him to speak in Kansai dialect

WHITEBEARD’S WOUNDS

Throughout the Battle of Marineford, Whitebeard received 267 sword wounds, 152 gunshot wounds and 46 wounds from cannonballs — adding up to a total of 465 injuries at the time of death. Despite this, there was not a single scar on Whitebeard’s back showing cowardice.

In manga, Whitebeard lost half of his face in the fight, but that wasn’t so in the anime.

The Gray Terminal

D: Good work everyday, sensei! Well a while ago, I was watching TV and thought, “maybe?!”, but is the “Gray Terminal”‘s model Smokey Mountain from the delinquent areas of Manila in the Philippines? by NN Brothers

O: Ah, so it was on TV. Yes, you are correct. Reality is something that has scenes that go beyond our imaginations, and “trash mountains burning with smoke rising up from them” is a scenery that actually exists. There, many people really actually live there. How it is displayed in the manga is only the outer looks, and in reality, there are things like diseases that spread, and it’s an everyday thing to find corpses lying around in real trash mountains. Even if you wanted to escape from that life, it doesn’t go as smoothly as manga. Even if I try to explain, it’s sort of not very detailed, so interested people, please look it up.

Zunisha Trivia

  • Zunisha is the oldest living creature introduced in the series, with its lifetime predating even the Void Century.
  • Zunisha’s design was based on the painting The Elephants by the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí;its species name read backward is “ダリノエミタイナ象”, which means “Zunisha is something like Dalí’s painting”. The Elephants are notorious for being quite gigantic elephants with buildings on their back and extremely long legs similar to those of the animals on Long Ring Long Land.
  • Zunisha’s species is named “Naitamie-Norida”. “Mie” and “Norida” together can mean “gone too far” in Japanese.
  • Zunisha may be based on the “World Elephant” Hindu concept, which is that a turtle supports elephants which carry the whole world on their backs – this could explain why Zunisha can roam around the sea.
  • “Zunisha” as a word may stem from “Ganesha”, the elephant-headed Hindu deity.
  • According to Miyagi , the Minks will one day have to leave Zunisha’s back and move elsewhere. He also suggested that Zunisha may not just be randomly walking the ocean, but is heading somewhere.

8 Things You Should Know About Killer

 

  • Killer and Zoro share a number of similarities, including their inclination towards killing/violence, status as the only non-captain Supernovas, lack of an apparent position in their crew, a fighting style that includes blades, and the only two who hold no apparent Devil Fruit abilities.
  • After the timeskip, Killer’s bounty has been raised from Beli162,000,000 to Beli200,000,000
  • In the 5th fan poll, Killer ranked 60th.
  • As stated in SBS, Killer eats with his mask on, and prefers food he can consume through the holes of his mask (stick-shaped or foods such as ramen). His meals have pasta as main every day and his favorite is Aglio e Olio. He also drinks alcohol through a straw. His stated preference for remaining masked while eating ascended from trivia to a known fact when he did just that in Chapter 793. In the picture below you can see Killer eating carrot and cucumber sticks.

 

  • Killers shares the same birthday with Vivi (February 2).
  • Oda said he picked the name “Killer” out of sheer laziness; thus the name holds little to no meaning. It means that he is the only Supernova introduced in the Sabaody Archipelago Arc whose name is not linked to a real life pirate or privateer and the only one of the group with no other meaning at all.
  • His favorite food is peperoncino, and his least favorite is curry udon.

Thatch Trivia

  • Seeing a resemblance between Thatch’s name and that of the real life pirate known as Blackbeard, Edward Thatch, a fan asked Oda in a SBS question if Thatch was based on the real life Blackbeard along with Edward Newgate and Marshall D. Teach.Oda replied to the fan that he indeed based Thatch’s name on the real life Blackbeard’s. However, the similarity is in name only.
  • Thatch was the only division commander known to be killed before the start of the story line.
  • During the war at Marineford, Whitebeard is seen with only fourteen division commanders, not including Ace, indicating that Thatch had not been replaced.
  • In Episode 476, a statue resembling Thatch can be seen after Hancock’s first attack.
  • Initially in the anime, he was given blonde hair spiking out rather than being arranged in a pompadour, had a white foulard, wore a blue shirt and gray pants with a sword on his right hip.Later in the anime, he was given a different color scheme; his hair was changed to orange brown, his foulard became yellow, and his entire uniform changed to a much lighter blue, with his shirt and pants the same color.
