* LostInTranslation: The rhymes about the treasure makes sense only in Japanese. Rather than substituting the riddles for English equivalents or adding translation notes, the official UK release opts to [[TooLongDidntDub translate them literally]], rendering the riddle answers nonsense.

** Nami gives another one to Luffy after hearing from Maji that the whole "Golden Crown" treasure was just a folktale, meaning the Straw Hats were duped into traveling to Mecha Island.
* DelinquentHair: Maji's hair is styled into a mohawk.
* DisappearedDad: Ratchet's father died when he was a child, which turned him into an eccentric obsessed with machines as an adult.



* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Although he treats his mother like crap, in the beginning he swooped down and rescued her from the Straw Hats (who he assumed to be evil pirates kidnapping his mother).
* EvilLaugh: [[spoiler:Ratchet indulges in this after setting his plans of world conquest into motion]].
* FacePalm: Nami does this in the beginning when Ratchet's mother explains how she ended up in the treasure chest, which included throwing the original treasure that was in the chest into the sea.

* FreakOut: Chopper has quite a scare when a maid's head falls off while serving him drinks. Thankfully, the maid was robotic.

** While Nami and Robin are pondering the legend of the Golden Crown, in the foreground Usopp chases Luffy (and Chopper) for eating his food during dinner.
* GadgeteerGenius: Ratchet. Most of Mecha Island's contraptions can be contributed to him. [[spoiler:Too bad he decides to squander his talents on trying to take over the world]].



* HearingVoices: Chopper continuously hears strange voices out of nowhere. [[spoiler:The voices come from the island's giant turtle]].
* HuddleShot: The Straw Hats get into a group huddle to discuss what to do with Ratchet's mother. There's a significant gap between Robin and Sanji that allows the viewer(s) to look at the rest of the crew.



* HurricaneOfPuns: The poem is rifled with japanese double entendres (not the sexual ones). For example, the first part mention the serpent's head ( a weird-looking rock) and the "two moons" (futatsu no tsuki). Tsuki can also mean "punch, strike", and the poem meant that.

* JawDrop: Nami does this after Luffy figures out the "two moons" riddle by accident.



* LighterAndSofter: '''Considerably''' after both [[Anime/TheCursedHolySword fifth]] and '''ESPECIALLY''' [[Anime/BaronOmatsuriAndTheSecretIsland the sixth]] provided very dark images to associate with OnePiece; the latter having some of the most disturbing images so in the franchise. The villain was also very harmless and not nearly as threatening as the previous ones.

* MeaningfulName: Meka Island. [[spoiler: Read Backwards it becomes Shimagame, "Island Turtle".]]

to:

* LamePunReaction: This is Nami's reaction every time a riddle is solved and it turns out to be a pun.
* MassOhCrap: While exploring the cave found for the "two moons" riddle, the Straw Hats (Ratchet, Honki, and Maji included) find their boat heading for a waterfall. This trope was their reaction.
* MeaningfulName: Meka Island. At first it seems like a NonIndicativeName due to its relatively peaceful environment, but we learn it gets its name from its well-hidden defense system Ratchet built. [[spoiler: Read Backwards backwards, it becomes Shimagame, "Island Turtle".]]
** A ratchet is a wrench-like device that helps turn cogs and wheels. Ratchet is a GadgeteerGenius.
* MetaphoricallyTrue: Ratchet's mother mentions a legend about the Golden Crown, which was said to be worn by the King of the Sea. Nami thinks it's total BS. [[spoiler:Turns out the legend was true, except the King of the Sea refers to a giant turtle, while the Golden Crown is actually the shells of the eggs the turtle lays, which are literally made of gold.
]]



* NonIndicativeName: There's a Karakuri Island, but no Giant Mechanical Soldier.
* NotSoStoic: Played for laughs near the end: After escaping from a cave in, Luffy and Nami freaks out over the [[spoiler: now freed Giant Turtle.]] Suddenly Zoro, unfazed burst out from the nearby rubble, coolly berates them with a stern look on his face... [[spoiler: then freaks out over the Giant Turtle.]]

to:

* NonIndicativeName: NervousFlopSweat: When the Straw Hats find a cave as part of the "two moons" riddle, Luffy proposes going into it. Usopp's response is to sweat generously.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Maji uses a giant electric fan to get the Straw Hats to leave the island (by blowing them away). Unfortunately the fan was put in front of the island's arrow defense system, causing its backside to suck up parts into it and shoot out debris that tear up the sails of the Straw Hats' ship, so now they ''can't'' leave.
* NonIndicativeName:
** The movie title.
There's a Karakuri Island, but no Giant Mechanical Soldier.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by the Straw Hats after they are led to a place called "Mecha Island", commenting on how rural and peaceful it looks.
* NotSoStoic: Played for laughs near the end: After end - after escaping from a cave in, Luffy and Nami freaks out over the [[spoiler: now freed Giant Turtle.]] Suddenly Zoro, unfazed burst out from the nearby rubble, coolly berates them with a stern look on his face... [[spoiler: then freaks out over the Giant Turtle.]]



* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Ratchet is called "Skinny Glasses" by Luffy through the entire movie.



* RainOfArrows: Occurs in the beginning of the movie when Maji activates the island's defense system. A bunch of mechanical puppets pop out and shoot numerous arrows at the Going Merry. Zoro deflects them all in one blow.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Subverted. Ratchet wears a scarf, but never physically engages the Straw Hats once (considering how powerful they are, physical engagement wouldn't be a good idea), so he fights them using a HumongousMecha.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Ratchet at times, due to wearing glasses. [[spoiler:Especially when he reveals his true goal of using the turtle to rule the world]].
* SpannerIntheWorks: [[spoiler:Ratchet's butler, who overhears his plans of world conquest and helps free the Straw Hats after they are imprisoned, allowing them to stop Ratchet]].



* TakeOverTheWorld: [[spoiler:Ratchet plans to enslave the turtle island with giant black cables coming out of his castle and use it to take over the known world. Hilariously (and much to his dismay), ''none'' of the Strawhats take him seriously after hearing his plans.]]

to:

* TakeOverTheWorld: [[spoiler:Ratchet believes that his genius makes him fit to rule the world, so he plans to enslave the turtle island with giant black cables coming out of his castle and use it as a weapon to take over conquer the known world. Hilariously (and much to his dismay), ''none'' of the Strawhats Straw Hats take him seriously after hearing his plans.]]



* TrapDoor:
** Ratchet drops his mother into one [[spoiler:when she tries confronting him about his plans]]. She comes back quickly, though.
** [[spoiler:Later, the Straw Hats fall into one when it is activated by Maji, causing them to fall into a garbage chute]].



* UsedToBeASweetKid: Ratchet loved building machines even as a child, but his father's early death made him eccentric and turned his love for machines into an unhealthy obsession.



* VictoriasSecretCompartment: After revealing that she wrote down the poem on a piece of paper, Robin pulls said paper from her cleavage. [[{{Gainaxing}} Bounce included.]]

* WalkingShirtlessScene: Ratchet wears no upper garments underneath his overalls.
* WingdingEyes: Happens a few times, especially when it's done in awe of Ratchet's machines.
* When Maji reveals the Fan King (a giant electrical fan that will blow their ship away), Luffy sports these eyes.
* WildTake: Maji does this in the beginning when he sees Ratchet's mother with the Straw Hats (whom he assumed to be evil pirates).
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Ratchet tries to kill the Straw Hats after they help him solve the riddle and awaken the turtle Shimagame by dropping bombs on them before escaping. They survive, unfortunately for him]].

* CelebrityVoiceActor: Goro Inagaki as Ratchet. His delivery is... too understated for the role, which is a shame, because [=SMAP=] are a fantastic comedy troupe (if below-average singers).

Upon reaching the island, they learn of a special poem which contains a code leading to the famed Golden Crown, however they're also antagonized by Ratchet, the ruler of the island and son of the elderly lady, who send his henchmen to chase away the pirates. However, when Luffy accidentally solves part of the riddle, he decides to ally with them in order to find the treasure of the island.
