"The Blue-Nosed Reindeer! Chopper's Secret" is the 84th episode of the One Piece anime.
Nami asks Chopper to join the crew, but he claims he is not interested. Kureha tells Nami some of what was Chopper's background. After realizing the abilities that Chopper has, Luffy is eager to make him join the crew.
At the beginning, Nami finds herself surprised, as the strange creature she met when she woke up is able to talk. It appears to be worried about her health, but acts scared and clumsy. As Dr. Kureha enters, she calls it Chopper. She informs Nami, whose fever has gone down a bit, that her sickness was caused by a poisonous bug-bite and would have killed her in two more days. Because of the severity of her sickness, Dr. Kureha tells Nami she has to stay for at least three more days in order to recover.
In the meantime, Chopper looks after Luffy and Sanji in another room. He remembers their arrival at the top of the mountain. Sanji had several injuries and Luffy, wearing his normal clothes, suffered from the cold. As Dr. Kureha inspected Nami, Luffy grabbed her arm, telling her, she had to save his friends.
While Chopper is lost in this memory, Luffy awakes, hungry as usual. Chopper, who thinks Luffy wants to eat him, gets scared again, waking up Sanji, who scares Chopper even more. Both Straw Hat Pirates chase after him, stopping for a moment when they see Nami. When they continue hunting for Chopper, Nami questions Dr. Kureha about him, who tells her that Chopper is “just a reindeer with a blue nose” who ate a devil fruit (human-human-fruit), enabling him to speak and walk around like a human. In the meantime, we can see that Chopper is also able to change his form, when he transforms into a bigger, more muscular version of himself, in order to lose his pursuers. Dr. Kureha also mentions that she taught Chopper everything about medicine.
At the foot of the mountain, Wapol and his two followers are still on the search for Luffy to get their revenge. In the village, which was buried by the avalanche, everyone except Zoro digs in the snow for Dalton. When they find him, he appears to be dead. Luffy and Sanji, who lost track of Chopper, unsuccessfully try to convince Dr. Kureha to join their crew, as they still need a doctor on board. After another attempt of hunting down Chopper, both of them are being chased away by Dr. Kureha and discover that the castle is filled with snow. Chopper stays with Nami, who asks him to be the crew's doctor. Later on, Dr. Kureha gives Nami her approval, should Chopper decide to come with them. She explains that Chopper had a difficult past, because he was born with a blue nose. After he had eaten the devil fruit, he became even more different than the other reindeer. Being hated and feared by both reindeer and humans, he was left alone all by himself.
When Luffy and Sanji want to close the gate in order to prevent more snow from entering the castle, Chopper transforms into his muscular form again to stop them, because there is a birds nest which would be destroyed if the gate was to be closed. They stop without a fight, but call Chopper a monster because of his abilities and appearance. This causes the reindeer to become very sad. Nevertheless, Luffy likes Chopper’s strangeness and wants him on his team.
