Over the course of the manga, Oda was often asked certain questions about the Straw Hats via the SBS sections. These questions were often about subtle information such as what colors represent the Straw Hats and other similar topics. The following are Oda's answers to such questions.

Miscellaneous InformationEdit

Animal ResemblancesEdit

In a SBS question, a fan asked what animals would they best resemble. When this question was first asked, the Straw Hats had 6 members. At a later SBS, Oda provided the other animals for the remaining crew members.Chapter 651's color spread depicts each Straw Hat as an animal post-timeskip as well. Some members' animals are changed, (Zoro is depicted as a tiger but according to the SBS he is a shark) but some stay the same (Luffy is drawn as a monkey).[2][3]

Specific NumbersEdit

In relation to a SBS question about a shirt Nami wore with the number 3 on it, Oda showed the specific numbers that he uses to represent the Straw Hats. The majority of these numbers are different from the order Luffy's crew joined him. They are instead numbers representing the order of the Straw Hats as a whole. When this question was first asked, the Straw Hats only had 6 members. At a later SBS, Oda provided the other numbers for the remaining crew members.[3][4] Note that the title of the chapter where a member joins is the ordinal number one less than the personal number; for example Zoro joins in Chapter 6, The First. Recently, each Straw Hat got another number, which determined by the order of who arrived at the Sabaody Archipelago.[5]

Specific ColorsEdit

In a SBS question, a fan asked if each of the Straw Hats have specific colors. Oda replied and revealed the specific colors for each member. When this question was first asked, the Straw Hats only had 6 members. At a later SBS, Oda provided the other colors for the remaining crew members.[3][6]

Specific SmellsEdit

In a SBS question, a fan asked Oda that since Chopper had such an amazing blue nose that allows him to identify his fellow crewmates, what do they all smell like. When this question was first asked, the Straw Hats only had 6 members. At a later SBS, Oda provided the other smells for the remaining crew members. All but Chopper's smell were identified as Chopper cannot tell what he himself smells like.[3][6]

Favorite Type of Island and SeasonEdit

In a SBS question, a fan asked which type of island do each of the Straw Hats like among the different seasonal types of islands in the Grand Line. It was also asked which season of that island do the Straw Hats like. When this question was first asked, the Straw Hats only had 7 members. At a later SBS, Oda provided the other islands and seasons for the remaining crew members.[3][7]

  • Monkey D. Luffy: Summer but considers snow to be great; ultimately anywhere where there's meat
  • Roronoa Zoro: Autumn on an Autumn Island
  • Nami: Summer on a Spring Island
  • Usopp: Summer on an Autumn Island
  • Sanji: Robin-chan on a Nami-san Island

Favorite FoodEdit

In a SBS question, a fan asked what each of the Straw Hats' favorite food were. Oda gave the following as a reply:[8]

  • Monkey D. Luffy: ALL KINDS OF MEAT.
  • Roronoa Zoro: White rice, sea king meat, and anything that complements ale.
  • Nami: Mainly tangerines as well as other kinds of fruit.
  • Usopp: Pike from an autumn island as well as other fish of the season, hates mushrooms.
  • Sanji: Spicy seafood pasta and food that complements black tea.
  • Tony Tony Chopper: Cotton candy, chocolate, and other sweet food and drinks.
  • Nico Robin: Sandwiches, cakes that aren't too sweet, and food that complements coffee.
  • Franky: Hamburgers, french fries, and food that complements cola.
  • Brook: Tea and takoyaki.

As a FamilyEdit

In a SBS question, a fan asked if the Straw Hats were a family, what family member would each one be. When this question was first asked, Brook wasn't a member at the time. At a later SBS, Oda provided the answer to which family member would Brook be.[3][9]

GenderswappedEdit

In a SBS question, a fan asks what would a genderswapped Straw Hat pirate crew be like, looking at Emporio Ivankov's powers. Oda replies with drawings and quotes for each genderswapped Straw Hat, all except for Brook who is just a skeleton and is unable to show any visible change.

[note: Except for Luffy (partly), Zoro and Sanji, they all say their own catchphrases, but modified to be extremely feminine/masculine.]

  • Monkey D. Luffy: "I'll eat salad and become Pirate Queen!"
  • Roronoa Zoro: "Three swords? I cannot, that'd break my teeth."
  • Nami: "I'm asking ya - who's the navigator on this ship?"
  • Usopp: "I think I'll die if I go to that island."
  • Sanji: "I only do sweets."

Least Favorite FoodEdit


Early One PieceEdit

In One Piece Green: Secret Pieces an early concept of the crew was revealed. No changes in particular are seen in Luffy, Zoro, and Nami aside from a few small ones; such as Zoro carrying a bottle of sake on his waist and wearing a dark shirt rather than a white one, and Nami's skirt being a little wavy rather than having straight cuts.

  • Sanji was supposed to have a somewhat thicker goatee from the beginning.
  • Usopp was supposed to be a vice captain/sniper that resembled his father more.
  • Chopper was supposed to be more of a "realistic-looking reindeer".
  • Robin replaced a man that was supposed to be more of a plant lover than a history lover.
  • Franky replaced the original midget carpenter.
  • Brook also was supposed to have a Cavalier hat hat instead of his trademark afro.

TriviaEdit

Straw Hat Bomb

The bomb in question.

  • In the manga series "Rurouni Kenshin", the Straw Hats' flag design was used on a bomb to start a vengeance hit on one of the main characters of the series. Before writing "One Piece", Oda worked as an assistant to Nobuhiro Watsuki, the creator of "Rurouni Kenshin".
  • In the "Scott Pilgrim" graphic novel series, the Straw Hats jolly roger appears on a painting of a ship at a party.
  • All of the crew members have lost someone whom they loved in the past: Zoro lost his rival and friend; Nami lost her adoptive mother; Usopp lost his mother; Sanji lost his old family at the cruise ship; Chopper lost his father figure; Robin lost her mother, her civilization, and Jaguar D. Saul; Franky lost his mentor; Brook lost his captain and later on his crew; and Luffy lost one of his brothers.
  • Although she no longer travels with them, the first six crew members (Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, and Chopper) consider Vivi as much of a crew member as any one of them.
  • Currently, they have at least Beli200,000,000 in their possession, which is the value of the treasure they got from Thriller Bark.[17]
  • So far they are the only known pirate crew where each member has a bounty on their head.
  • In the anime since the Post-War arc, all Luffy, Zoro, Usopp, and Robin's olive skin were changed to light skin (in Robin's case to very light skin, similar to Nami's and Sanji's) to match them as they are colored in the manga.
  • In the SBS Volume 51, Oda said that the Yojijukugo which would best represent the crew is "Unprecedented in history".
  • On Episode 587, the paper Monet was reading, instead of showing a picture of Sogeking, it showed a picture of Usopp after the 2 year timeskip.
