The eighteen/[[TimeSkip twenty]]-year-old navigator of the Straw Hats, Nami was initially introduced as a thief who detested pirates and stole from them. Her years of thievery have given her a sly and wily personality, as she isn't above taking advantage of or blackmailing her own crew mates. Despite these greedy personality traits, she is still very loyal to the crew, [[OnlySaneWoman though they do get on her nerves from time to time]], and their journey would have been nigh impossible without her near-supernatural abilities to read the ocean currents and predict weather phenomena, leading some to wonder if she's actually a witch. She uses a weapon called the Clima-Tact, later upgraded to the Perfect Clima-Tact and currently the Sorcery Clima-Tact.

Her dream is to draw a map of the world, which she was unable to realize until Luffy managed to free her and her island from the tyrannical rule of the [[FishPeople Fishman]] pirate Arlong. She owes a great deal to the others and especially Luffy for this, and is often the only member of the crew other than Zoro to personally confront or remind him of the deep, gut-wrenching choices that he must face.

Her first bounty was 16,000,000 Berries and her current bounty is 66,000,000 berries.

Usopp serves
as the crew's sharpshooter, and previously served as the (barely competent) repairman for the ''Going Merry''. He had a thief reputation on his home island of being a serial liar who detested claimed that pirates and stole from them. Her years of thievery have given her a sly and wily personality, as she isn't above taking advantage of or blackmailing her own crew mates. Despite these greedy personality traits, she is still very loyal were attacking, which came back to the crew, [[OnlySaneWoman though they do get on her nerves from time to time]], and their journey would have been nigh impossible without her near-supernatural abilities to read the ocean currents and predict weather phenomena, leading some to wonder if she's haunt him when pirates ''[[CryingWolf actually attacked]]''. He's a witch. She uses rather boastful seventeen/[[TimeSkip nineteen]] year-old who likes to tell tall tales (several of which actually are or do come true, after a weapon fashion), though he's more prone to hiding behind the stronger crew members like Zoro when he gets into a fight. However, when push comes to shove he is very dependable. He specializes in the use of a slingshot, called the Clima-Tact, Galaxy Slingshot (''Ginga Pachinko''), which he replaced with the Kabuto and later upgraded to the Perfect Clima-Tact and currently the Sorcery Clima-Tact.

Her
Black Kabuto.

His
dream is to draw better himself and become a map of brave warrior like his father Yasopp, who serves alongside Shanks, Luffy's idol. According to Oda, he is the world, which she was unable to realize until Luffy managed to free her and her island from the tyrannical rule of the [[FishPeople Fishman]] pirate Arlong. She owes a great deal to the others and especially Luffy for this, and is often the only physically-weakest member of the crew other than Zoro crew, and his worries about [[CantCatchUp not being able to personally confront or remind keep up]] with the stronger members, with the resulting inner turmoil from that, put him at odds with Luffy during one story arc, and ultimately resulted in the creation of an alter ego dubbed Sogeking (a pun on "Sogeki" (Sniping) and "King", "Sniper King" in the English versions) which he uses to draw on his inner strength and courage.

His first bounty, as "Sogeking", was 30,000,000 berries. After the events
of the deep, gut-wrenching choices that he must face.

Her first bounty was 16,000,000 Berries
Dressrosa Arc, the government finally recognized Usopp himself by name and her gave him his current bounty is 66,000,000 berries.of 200,000,000 berries. In addition, he was given a new official epithet to go with his real name: "God" Usopp.



* AccidentalTickleTorture: In the English dub only, she screams "that tickles!" when Sanji hugs her at the conclusion of the Luffy's duel with Foxy.
* ActionGirl: [[ActionSurvivor Not at first]], but starts growing into the role after being given her Clima Tact. After the TimeSkip, she's finally a [[OneManArmy One Woman Army]] like the rest of the crew.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Her hair is yellow-orange in the manga, but veers toward reddish-orange in the anime. The Oda-directed ''Strong World'' and ''Film Z'' notably make it purely orange, similar to the way the former lightened Robin's skin before she became permanently light-skinned post-TimeSkip.
* AlmightyJanitor: While technically her position is only the navigator, her word is law on all matters related to sailing, finance and the day-to-day management of resources, thus making her the unofficial quartermaster. At this point, even ''she's'' quite a bit stronger than her mere (now rightfully updated) 16,000,000 bounty would imply thanks to the massive and dangerous upgrades she made to her Clima Tact.
* AntiHero: Starts off as not willing to kill, but fine with putting pirates in situations where they are certain to die due to her past.
* ArmorPiercingSlap:
** PlayedForLaughs. With just slaps, she's one of the few characters able to render Luffy a bruised and bloody mess. Creator/EiichiroOda says that it's because her blows are "emotionally and spiritually charged".
** It was tragically played seriously when she slaps [[spoiler:Sanji after he gives Luffy a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown during the former's BreakHisHeartToSaveHim gambit. It was probably the first time she actually gave up on a crewmate for real]]. Thankfully, they do make up later though once she learns his motives.
* ArtEvolution:
** In the anime, her eyes have been drawn lighter since the TimeSkip, going from dark brown to near orange. Furthermore, her eyes were originally drawn uniformly brown, with the irises only visible when she was showing strong emotion. Now, the irises are visible at all times (though the manga still generally follows the pre-TimeSkip design of "uniform brown unless emotional").
** Like all of the women from early One Piece (such as Tashigi or Vivi), Nami became curvier and significantly more well-endowed over time as Oda's art style evolved.
* AuthorAppeal: Oda is HappilyMarried to Chiaki Inaba, the actress who played Nami in the ''Jump Festa'' stage performances. Now Oda thinks his wife is incredibly sexy (and to be fair, she ''is'' very pretty), so he altered Nami's design so when she plays Nami in future performances he could show off her beauty to everybody...and because [[CovertPervert he really enjoys seeing his wife in the increasingly revealing outfits he comes up with]].
* BadassAdorable: She's a very cute young lady, and she knows it, but she's also far from helpless. She even sometimes lampshades it.
* BadassBookworm: Nami is a highly skilled navigator as well as a talented cartographer, to the point where Arlong considered her skills on par with the fishmen "superiority" since they were superior to any fishman's. When Luffy destroys her room at Arlong Park, maps of both bathymetric and geographic nature were seen, indicating Nami has a wide variety of cartographic skills. She is capable of formulating advanced equations in mere minutes to predict a precise course of action, although she usually needs to write the equations down on a physical medium when formulating them. She has the innate ability to sense changes in the weather, and can even predict the appearance of supposedly unpredictable cyclones in the Grand Line, even when running a high fever. The movie Strong World also shows that she performs better than a crew of scientists with some advanced equipment in predicting the weather.
* BadassNormal: She has no Devil Fruit powers, but the Clima-Tact more than makes up for it.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Averted. The front of her breast is clearly visible as she shows [[{{Sideboob}} sideboob]] in chapter 852, while it's hard to make out (most likely on purpose due to One Piece being a {{Shonen Jump}} manga), there is a line that forms part of a nipple. The rest can't be seen part because she's filthy, and partly due to the art style
* BareYourMidriff: A few of her outfits sport this, but her first timeskip design is the most evident case of this. Zou is actually the first post-TimeSkip arc in which she's not baring it, and she started the arc with a midriff-baring outfit before exchanging clothes with Wanda.
* BathingBeauty: Gets a few of these scenes occasionally.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Double-subverted. The serious damage she receives during her more intense fights does show, but as soon as the fights are over, in any of the more minor battles, and in the long run overall, her skin is absolutely flawless.
** The most ridiculous is probably the case of her shoulder; she ''stabbed'' it repeatedly during her epic FreakOut at Arlong Park, and it left a very large and visible scar (which you can see [[http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/File:Nami_Scar.png here]], above the [[FanService fan service]]) for the remainder of the arc. As soon as the arc was over? She got a new tattoo and her scar was nowhere to be seen. But deep stab-wound scars like that, in real life, are particularly nasty and never quite heal so completely.
*** In the manga, for some time the scar was still visible a bit under her new tatto the times she wore sleeveless shirts, but by the Whisky Peak arc it completely disappeared. Maybe Oda thought it was too much of a hassle to draw.
** Averted as far as [[WildTake Wild Takes]] go: she has the most out of anyone, ''and'' the goofiest. Being the OnlySaneWoman will do that to you.
* BecomingTheMask: Initially, she had only intended to use Luffy for all he was worth before leaving. But the longer she stayed with them, the more she grew to like being part of the Straw Hats (especially compared to her experiences with Arlong). Eventually, she betrayed them and cheerfully took off with Going Merry, but once she was on her own, she [[HeroicBSOD broke down and cried]]. When the Straw Hats eventually follow her, she is visibly upset while trying to keep them out of a fight she thought they couldn't win. Like with Robin later on, Luffy continues to think of Nami as part of his crew and confronts Arlong for her sake. The final nail in this was when Luffy told Nami to watch [[NiceHat his signature straw hat]], simultaneously a sign of his trust in her and a sign he was [[LetsGetDangerous about to kick some serious butt]]. By this time she is too shaken with emotion to even move, ultimately coming to the realization she ''wants'' to be a Straw Hat, leading to her ultimate decision to leave with them after Luffy defeats Arlong.
* BerserkButton: She has seven. Simply put, ''[[FieryRedhead don't try to piss Nami off]]''.
** Do not spend money without consulting her first.
** Do not steal anything from her, especially if she stole it first.
** Don't call her a witch.
** Don't insult her good looks.
** Never hurt her tangerine trees (a button she got from [[ParentalSubstitute Bell-mère]]).
** Don't argue with her.
** Hurting kids is a quick way to get on Nami's permanent shit list.
* BlackMagicianGirl: Nami has all the trimmings of this due to her Clima-Tact: she's the weakest of the crew in a physical fight, but she's able to control weather effects as though they're magic spells being cast from a staff (with lightning being her specialty, although she's more than proficient with heat, wind, cold, water, sea clouds, and illusory techniques as well). Some of her opponents have even referred to her as a witch in response to her fighting style.
* BlowYouAway: Since she can control the weather with her Clima-Tact, she can use this to attack. It's how she defeated Miss Doublefinger.
* BorrowedCatchPhrase: When she claims to be a crossdressing man to get Zombie!Lola off her case, she uses Bon Clay's "Not joking around!"
* BreakHisHeartToSaveHim: A platonic example. In the Arlong Park arc, Nami tries to make the Straw Hats leave Cocoyashi since she's so close to paying off her debt to Arlong and buying back her town's freedom, and she doesn't want the Straw Hats to get hurt. After she finds out Arlong broke his promise [[KickTheDog and confiscated her money]], she goes through a ''heartbreaking'' HeroicBSOD, and as a last resort she screams at Luffy to go away and leave her and her town alone. What follows is a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown as the Straw Hats completely thrash the Arlong Pirates.
* BrickJoke: Zoro still owes her money for that time he borrowed some from her in Loguetown to buy some new katana.
* BrokenBird: She is shown to have been spectacularly broken as a little girl in the Arlong arc (due to the brutal murder of her adoptive mother and her years in Arlong's crew). That was until Luffy defeated Arlong that she was no longer broken. However, while she warmed up to pirates thanks to the Straw Hats saving her and her town from captivity, it took her a while to feel she could start trusting Fishmen in general after the devilish impression she got from the Arlong Pirates, which Hatchan found out the hard way.
* BrokenTears: After Arlong [[KickTheDog decided to go back on his word and send corrupt Marines to confiscate the money Nami stole]], Nami completely breaks down, sobbing as she stabs at the shoulder tattoo Arlong gave her and screaming at Luffy to leave her and Cocoyashi behind to no avail. [[ThisIsUnforgivable Cue Luffy and the Straw Hats]] [[CurbStompBattle opening a can of whoop-ass]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown and bulldozing Arlong's crew]].
* ButtMonkey: One of the rare female versions and one of the biggest '''''[[UpToEleven ever.]]''''' She's more so known as [[FieryRedhead that one chick who blows up at her crew mates idiocy]], and [[{{Greed}} a greedy pirate girl]], but whenever something goes wrong, ([[PlayedForLaughs which is all the damn time,]]) she'd be no better than ''[[CowardlyLion Usopp]]''. Best exemplified in the [[HalloweenEpisode Thriller Bark Arc]], where after Enies Lobby is all said and done, you would think that nothing could faze her. [[{{Bathos}} Cue the ghosts and zombies.]]
** As of the TimeSkip, this seems to be [[InvertedTrope flipped:]] When her doppelgänger pointed a gun at her ''head,'' she didn't even flinch. Yes, Nami the [[{{Greed}} greedy]] [[FieryRedHead red head]], pulled a [[TheStoic Stoic.]] That goes thrown right out the window as soon as Luffy starts doing his usual antics because she doesn't have to put on a brave face anymore (and Nami didn't fear Chocolat one bit for pretending to be her and was actually rather annoyed), but Nami can still stare daggers when the moment counts.
* CallBack: Nami gets déjà vu when she and Luffy [[spoiler:manage to get out of Big Mom's book prison by burning it, which burns them and their clothes]]. It's a call back to Little Garden, where the same happened to get out of Mr. 3's Candle Set.
* CantCatchUp:
** Usopp somewhat fixes this problem for her. She's not quite as strong as her crewmates, but she's got a respectable record, taking out Miss Doublefinger from Baroque Works and Kalifa from [=CP9=].
** When Nami and Sanji get body-swapped in Punk Hazard, Sanji worries about using hers to perform his Black Leg techniques because her body isn't toned for physical combat. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when it turns out that she ''is'' strong enough to use several of the techniques though.
* CatFight: Gets into these all the time, but her fight with Kalifa in which Nami herself is scantily clad and getting rubbed all over [[FanService by the just-as-buxom, fishnet-fond Kalifa using her]] [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum "Slippery wet soap powers"]] takes the cake.
* CelibateHeroine: Her reason to not want to marry Absalom is (other than he's a creepy pervert) that she is way too young to get married and would rather go on adventures for the time being. Also, while she regularly flirts with others to get what she wants, she is one of the three crew members (along with Luffy and Zoro) to never show unambiguous attraction to anyone.
* CerebusRetcon: Initially played straight with Nami's [[MoneyFetish greed]] and distrust of pirates. In the Arlong Park Arc, we find out her hometown was taken over by pirates and she struck a deal with the leader to buy back the town from him if she gathered enough money. Ultimately subverted, when this arc was over, Nami is still obsessed with money and treasure. Even in the flashback to Nami's past, she was stealing things before Arlong showed up. It likely has more to do with her poor background.
* CharacterDevelopment: After the two year timeskip, she does not over-react, scold, or hit the crew as often for their rash actions anymore, like when she decides to take part in activities such as [[spoiler:demanding money when the crew holds Ryugu Kingdom "hostage".]] In fact she now appears quite calm in the most daunting of situations, most notably when Fake Nami held a gun to her head, implying she has become fairly confident in her abilities.
* CharacterTics: Playfully sticking her tongue out at someone she's robbed or just somehow screwed over. It also shows up fairly often in official artwork and merchandise.
* ChildProdigy: Nami was able to draw impressive maps by the time she was only ''ten''.
* ClassyCatBurglar: Nami definitely qualifies -- First, she is a master thief, being able to steal items off of her victims without them noticing. Second, her [[AnimalMotifs animal motif]] is a cat, the animal most associated with being sneaky like a thief. And thirdly, her main nickname is ''"Cat Burglar"'' Nami.
* CombatStilettos: She's most often seen wearing high-heeled sandals, though she doesn't fight physically.
* ConfusionFu: One of the Clima-tact's abilities is to create several fake Nami illusions. It also makes her look like any one of them, meaning it's not a good idea to rely on the fact that they all look different from her.
* TheConsigliere: While all the Straw Hats can fill this role for the very [[IdiotHero dense]] Luffy, Nami is the one who most often directs him in the right direction with her advice and insight (especially in regards to navigation. Whether or not he actually follows that advice is really up to his mood, however, which is why Nami tries to avoid letting him in on making decisions that would cause the crew problems.)
* CoolSword: One of her new techniques is to create a [[spoiler:wind sword]].
* CowardlyLion: Less than Chopper and Usopp, but she does not have the fear immunity that the rest of the crew have. This is justified out of pragmatism than anything else, since she is completely untrained in physical combat. After the TimeSkip, this is now no longer the case, [[spoiler:as noted when her doppelgänger pointed a gun at her ''head'', and]] she didn't even ''flinch.'' She's been going strong ever since.
** She's physically stronger than she gives herself credit for too. While her stamina is low, Sanji had no problems knocking out several of Caesar's thugs and a large shark with his usual kicks while stuck in Nami's body from a FreakyFridayFlip.
* CryCute: Despite the quite massive JerkassFacade she puts on for the first half of the Arlong arc, it's next to impossible not to gain sympathy with her when she breaks down crying due to Arlong's betrayal. She also has several moments in the Water 7/Enies Lobby arc, especially regarding Usopp.
* CynicismCatalyst: The death of Bell-mère at the hands of Arlong caused Nami to hate pirates with a passion. She ultimately gets over it after Luffy defeats Arlong.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: She wears short skirts two times in canon. The first was [[http://images.wikia.com/onepiece/images/6/6e/W7.jpg in the Water 7 arc]], when she didn't fight at all. The second was [[http://images.wikia.com/onepiece/images/a/a6/Nami_PerfectClimaTact.JPG in the Enies Lobby arc]], where she more than proved her worth as an ActionGirl. Her battle outfit in ''Film Z'' has one as well, though in that case it's partially justified: since she was turned into a kid, her outfit is child-sized, and thus looked a lot shorter when she returned to normal.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Nami had one of the worst upbringings among her crew. Her parents were killed in a war when she was a baby, and she and another girl, Nojiko, were ''de facto'' adopted by Bell-mère, a wild child-turned-Marine-turned-tangerine farmer, who brought them home. When Nami was 10, Bell-mère was murdered by Arlong when she used all the money she had to pay for the lives of her children instead of herself (she didn't even have to, since they weren't registered). She was then conscripted into Arlong's pirates for her mapmaking skills, then dicked around for a 100-million-beri bounty on the town's freedom that Arlong never intended to allow her to pay.
* ADayInTheLimelight: The special "Episode of Nami" TV Special that aired between episodes 560 and 561. A retelling of the Arlong Park Arc. Actually post TimeSkip Nami reminiscing while on their way to Fishman Island.
* DeadpanSnarker: In the Funimation dub. Luci Christian clearly enjoys making Nami as wry as possible.
* DefiantToTheEnd: Nami ends up siding with her fellow villagers to fight to the death towards the end of the Arlong arc.
* DefrostingIceQueen: At first, she claims to only want to work with the crew to accomplish her goals, and maintains that for a little while before she eventually betrays them to steal their money. But by that time, she had grown so comfortable with them that she didn't want to leave; even her own sister remarked that it had been a long time since she had seen Nami so emotional.
* DoesNotLikeSpam: According to [[WordOfGod Oda]], she hates orangeades (chocolate-coated oranges) and prefers the actual fruit.
* DopeSlap: Or rather, "Dope Punch". She applied it liberally whenever her crewmates (usually [[IdiotHero Luffy]]) act very stupid. She mellows out on it after the TimeSkip, though.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: She beats her crewmates up very often, but never do said crewmates respond in kind. She does lessen on the beatings after the TimeSkip, though.
* DudeMagnet: Many men who are attracted to her.
** [[WordOfGod Oda]] commented that she (and Robin) are considered very beautiful women InUniverse.
** [[ChivalrousPervert Sanji]] constantly flirts with her.
** [[InvisibleJerkass Absalom]] made ''creepy'' advances on her and attempted to ''marry'' her via force.
** [[spoiler:Ichiji, Niji, and Yonji]], who are [[spoiler:Sanji's]] brothers, are smitten with Nami when they first meet her.
* EarlyBirdCameo: In the manga, she first appears in chapter 8. In the anime, however, she makes an appearance in the very first episode, before Luffy himself.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness:
** When she stabbed herself in the arm to gouge out her old tattoo, it scarred up her flesh pretty badly. The new tattoo she got was not supposed to cover it up, as seen in a depiction of her [[FuroScene in a bath]] during the novelization of the Loguetown Arc. However, Oda must have decided that it looked unattractive for Nami to have a visible scar, so he made it so that her new tattoo really did cover it up completely.
** It's fairly common for Nami to beat up Luffy when she's EnragedByIdiocy despite his immunity to blunt force, yet when Luffy ignored her warnings to be careful with his straw hat after she sewed the tears from Buggy, she pokes him with the needle precisely because punching him wouldn't work.
* EverybodyKnewAlready: She asked Nojiko to keep her efforts to buy her village back from Arlong a secret, even after Genzo had her banished from the village for joining Arlong Pirates, knowing that the villagers struggled to pay the tribute. It turns out that Genzo, unwilling to believe she'd join the pirates willingly, got Nojiko to tell him the truth, but decided to keep it a secret from Nami so she could run away if she was unable to go on.
* EveryoneHasStandards: As greedy as she is, she's willing to give up treasure for the sake of her friends, such as giving some of Thriller Bark's treasure to her friend Lola as a gift, or being willing to spend all the treasure to buy Caimie and set her free (unfortunately, she gets preemptively outbid).
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: She grows her hair out during the TimeSkip.
* FanServicePack: Over the course of a few hundred chapters/episodes, Nami's physique changed greatly. Her breasts have gradually increased in size, from modest B's to full-blown F's. It's enough to make you think that the story hasn't been in ComicBookTime, but apparently she's just prone to growth spurts. At the ages of 18 and 20. Every other week of her life. And the [[PerverseSexualLust fans]] [[RuleThirtyFour rejoiced]].
** Well, technically G-cup to I-cup to J-cup, according to Eiichiro Oda, but the same logic applies. (note that Japanese bra cup sizes scale differently than American ones; translated, her breast size is still absurd, but not impossible)
** And keep in mind, this is the same universe where pathetic-looking runts (Coby) turn into outright [[{{Bishonen}} bishonens]] in less than a year (albeit with training), and where ordinary-sized children grow into 22-foot-tall monstrosities (Moriah). And both are human.
** There is also her upbringing to take into account. Under Bell-mère, her life was PerpetualPoverty, with a constant struggle to get enough to eat, books on cartography being a ''luxury''. For the eight years in Arlong's captivity, she was not fed ''at all,'' and she had to steal food from other pirates as well as valuables, with valuables taking a higher priority. Once she became a pupil of the weather mages, her nutritional needs were much better met, allowing her to realistically grow a larger bust. In addition, while with the Straw Hats Sanji is able to feed her far better than she had been before, hence her growth in the Grand Line.
%%* FauxActionGirl: At least, in early chapters.
* FieryRedhead: One of the more [[{{Tsundere}} emotional]] members of the crew. "True to her looks, she's so bold!"
* FireIceLightning: The [[WeatherControlMachine Clima-Tact's]] most basic function is to create three types of air bubbles named the Heat Ball, Cool Ball, and Thunder Ball. It used to be a slight subversion in that with the first version of the Clima-Tact, the Heat and Cool Balls were useless as attacks, and tended to be used for weather manipulation only. Once it got upgraded, the Heat and Cool Balls became strong enough to inflict damage to enemies (albeit relatively minor damage) in their base form.
* FlowerMotifs: According to Yuriko Yamaguchi (Robin's voice actress), Nami's flower is the sunflower, which are Chinese symbols of vitality and intelligence. She is a beautiful woman and, as stated by Oda, one of few people who are the most intelligent in ''One Piece'' (the other being Benn Beckam, Shank's First Mate).
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The rash, thieving Foolish to Nojiko's level-headed, straight-lace Responsible. To top it off, [[RedOniBlueOni Nami has red-orange hair while Nojiko has blue hair]].
* ForcedToWatch: She and Nojiko are forced to watch Arlong kill Bell-mère before their eyes.
* FormFittingWardrobe: She wears tight clothes every now and then, but mostly in the anime, which likes to exaggerate the original designs. Take [[http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/File:Nami%27s_Zou_Departure_Outfit.png this polo shirt]], for example.
* FreudianExcuse: Her greed and kleptomaniac tendencies started wit her living in poverty, even though she and her adoptive sister Nojiko were raised well by Bell-mère. Her hatred of pirates started when Arlong killed Bell-mère in front of her, though she got over it when Luffy and the Straw Hats defeated the Arlong Pirates and freed her hometown.
* {{Gainaxing}}: In the 7th movie, sometimes they bounce wildly when she moves very little.
** It's also the case in the 12th movie. Though you could argue this is compensating for the fact that she spends most of the movie as a kid.
%%* GoGoEnslavement
* {{Greed}}: One of her main traits. If there's money to be made, count her in!
* GuileHero: "Heroine" in her case. To compensate for her lack of Devil Fruit powers (Robin, Brook, Chopper), [[{{Cyborg}} technological enhancements]] (Franky), and [[LightningBruiser monstrous physical/Haki skills]] (Luffy, Zoro, Sanji), her usual approach is the tactical one; when she first meets Luffy, she calls him [[HilariousInHindsight "Boss"]] to [[LetsYouAndHimFight get the guys chasing her off her tail]]. In the Totto Land arc, she manages to defeat [[BadBoss Charlotte Cracker]] this way - [[spoiler:using her Clima-Tact to soften up his Biscuit Soldiers so Luffy can eat through Cracker's defenses and gain a more powerful form]]
* HappilyAdopted: After losing their parents in a war, she and her non-blood sister Nojiko were taken in and raised by Bell-mère, who was a good mother to them both. [[CynicismCatalyst Then Arlong had to kill her in front of her daughters]]...
* HeroicBSOD: Two:
** As a child, she goes into a brief one when Arlong murders Bell-mère.
** In the Arlong arc, Nami goes into a major one when Arlong steals her fortune to buy her village's freedom and turns on her. She collapses in front of Luffy and starts crying BrokenTears, stabbing at the shoulder where Arlong tattooed her and screaming at Luffy for his crew to leave her and her town alone. She seemed intent on giving up on escaping pirate captivity altogether but Luffy snaps her out of it.
* HotWitch: Given her weather control capabilities and seductive nature, Nami's often called a witch, which is her BerserkButton.
* HowDoIShotWeb: When she first got her Clima-tact, she had no idea what it would do, and spent some time doing party tricks built into it by Usopp.
* HypocriticalHumor:
** Nami doesn't trust Robin when she first joins, and calls Luffy, Chopper, and Sanji idiots for being easily swayed by Robin to allow her to join up despite her history with Crocodile. She then goes to tell Robin that she herself won't be as easily swayed as she doesn't trust her. However, as soon as Robin casually offers up a bag of gems, Nami does a complete 180 and gets easily swayed. She even called her [[CoolBigSis "Sis"]].
** Nami likes to charge her crewmates for ridiculous reasons, but when one of them tries to do the same to her, she runs off.
* IconicOutfit: 3 of them; Her very first (the white shirt and orange skirt), her Enies Lobby outfit (the [[FanService infamous]] cuttoff brown blouse and blue skirt) and her first TimeSkip outfit, the bikini top and jeans. She's also always seen wearing a Log Pose on her wrist like a watch.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: While Eiichiro Oda did state there will not be any romance in the series, it's worth noting that the baby that Luffy is holding (in a, granted non-canon, page) that represent's Oda's daughter looks like Nami.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: Had one as early as the Alabasta arc, but it's much more defined after the TimeSkip.
* {{Irony}}: Her original hometown and adopted mother were destroyed and killed, respectively, because of pirates. And now, she is a pirate.
* JerkassFacade: Acted like this during the Arlong arc to try to prevent the Straw Hats from interfering in her business with Arlong, but it came [[TearJerker crumbling down]] along with her attempts to resolve the situation herself. Luffy doesn't take what Arlong did to her very well at all.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Emphasizing the "Jerk", at first. She can be selfish, manipulating [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and rude]], but there's no doubt she cares about her friends. She gradually [[TookALevelInKindness outgrows this behavior]] [[CharacterDevelopment over the course]] of the series. By the time the TimeSkip rolls around, she rarely acts like a jerk anymore (towards her friends, at least) unless they're asking for it.
* TheLadette: She skirts the edge of this trope. She's very feminine in her dress, cute in her mannerisms (when she wants something) and knows how to manipulate men (Sanji, not that that takes much) with her looks. On the other hand, she can out-drink Zoro, who is a bit of an alcoholic, drops the sweet talk when she isn't trying to scam you out of your money going for insults instead, and shows no fear playing hardball with men much stronger than her (even if she's just doing the negotiations, and intends to step back and let the stronger crew members do the actual beating). Of all the pirates, she probably come the closest to "raping pillaging and stealing." Zoro often comments that Sanji's attentions to her (and Robin, but whatever) are even more pathetic taking into account that Nami is more of a man than the cook himself. Even if she does like to look pretty.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAkJBs7il2U Nami Eyecatcher.]]
* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine: Usually the light to Robin's dark. Can be zigzagged though, as while Nami is more bubbly and girly than Robin, she is much less [[ProperLady ladylike]], and she even has her moments where she is cold and aloof while Robin shows curiosity and childish imagination.
* LittleMissBadass: In the twelfth movie, after [[FountainOfYouth she was temporarily turned into a kid]] by Ain. She was also this when she actually was a kid; she started tricking and stealing from pirates at merely 10 years old.
* LittleMissConArtist: She takes advantage of that to trick some Marine soldiers into giving her info about Z.
* LongHairIsFeminine: Post-TimeSkip, she now Has RapunzelHair and is still as girly as ever.
* LovableRogue: While not a villain, Nami is known for being a thief, but she's still a lovable person.
* MagicStaff: Her Clima-Tact, her main weapon. [[WeatherControlMachine It even creates small-scale weather effects]].
* MamaBear: When faced with the imprisoned children of Punk Hazard begging to be taken back to their families, the rest of the crew (Sanji in particular) remain indifferent to their plight (though Chopper and Franky did want to go back too, they considered it too reckless). Nami however, is the ''first'' to take a stand for them, and her fervor in protecting Caesar Clown's young victims eventually inspires and awakens the dormant conscience of her friends. She's also this to her friends. Considering her [[MissingMom backstory]], it's very understandable.
-->'''Sanji:''' Hey, what the hell do you mean, Nami? They're not our problem! We're not Samaritans who go around saving people!\\
'''Nami:''' I know we're not! But when little kids are begging and crying for you to help them, you CAN'T just leave them and do nothing!
* MeaningfulName: Her name means "wave", and she is, after all, a navigator on a ship...
* MarsAndVenusGenderContrast: Nami proves to be an archetypal character for this trope. As the series unfolds, it's clear Nami simply doesn't get men's way of thinking, whatever it is values, attitudes, behaviors, codes, intentions, decisions or actions. Specifically, she doesn't understand the tacit communication between Luffy and Zoro (as seen in Buggy arc), is the only character who hates to be in a Wanted poster (in contrast with general cheerfulness male characters react to publications and updates of those posters) and her opinions and advices are usually disregarded in topics like adventures, honor or discipline and respect, who are important for men (like her permission for Luffy and Zoro to fight Bellamy in Jaya arc, her attempt to ruin Luffy's adventure in Skypiea and her refusal to have a campfire in Upper Yard, the whole Usopp affair in Water 7, or the "Monster Trio" accepting or supporting the "Davy Back Fight" challenge against the Fox Pirates). Even after the {{Time Skip}}, that situation doesn't change at all, as seen in [[spoiler: Punk Hazard arc]] or the [[spoiler: Whole Cake Island arc, where Nami decided to cut bonds with Sanji, only to see how Luffy, unlike her, shows totally loyal with him, overriding Nami decision in the process]].
* {{Meganekko}}: Sometimes when she's at work.
* MetaGal: Spends a lot of her early appearances reacting to Luffy and Zoro's inhuman abilities. Actually, almost everyone falls into this role when introduced to the wackiness of the Straw Hat Crew, but the more human members (like Nami) keep it up longer. Like most of the other characters, she now reacts to how strange the people that the Straw Hats meet are instead.
* MissingMom: [[ParentalSubstitute Bellemere]] died saving her and her adoptive sister by being shot by Arlong himself. [[ForcedtoWatch Nami saw the whole thing]]. Her birth mom, on the other hand, is likely a casualty of war.
* MoneyFetish: She's such a classic case that she's the current image for that page. See [[MrViceGuy Ms. Vice Girl]] below.
* MsFanservice: Most conventional in the world, as she's… stacked, [[{{Gainaxing}} bouncy]], [[TheTease flirtatious]], and [[BareYourMidriff rarely covers her stomach]]. After the time skip we have… [[WalkingSwimsuitScene bikini top]], low-riding pants that expose her hips and upper crotch-lines, high heels, and [[LongHairIsFeminine much longer and free-flowing hair]]. Taken up to eleven in the "Glorious Island" movie tie-in; most of the focus is on Nami bouncing around in a tiny bikini, with her breasts larger than ever before. Her wardrobe seems to shrink for each story arc as she's down to the bikini top and [[WhoWearsShortShorts short shorts]] in the Dressrosa storyline.
* MsViceGirl: She is obsessed with money and often cons other characters (including her own crewmates) out of their hard-earned cash. Despite this, her good qualities still outweigh her greed. In the Arlong Park arc, it's shown exactly why she's so fixated on getting rich. The habit doesn't exactly die after the fact, but she slowly gets better about it, at least.
* MundaneUtility: Weather control makes a great weapon. It also makes showering anywhere a lot easier.
* TheNavigator: She's good at drawing maps, and has an innate gift to detect extremely subtle changes in the weather that foreshadow storms, making her a very valuable navigator.
* NeverGetsDrunk: Nami can hold her liquor just fine. She out-drinks fifteen people and goes on like it was nothing. She may even be better than Zoro, as she actually outdrank more than him, and although she had to fake passing out to trick her enemies' attention in Whiskey Peak, she said she could go on even longer. She actually does get a little tipsy in the Fishman Island arc, but not outright drunk.
* NiceGirl: Post-timeskip, while still prone to comedic outbursts, Nami is more kinder; See TookALevelInKindness below.
* NiceShoes: As a thief, she went with practical and rather plain boots, but when she put that life behind her, she traded them for a preference toward wearing glamorous-looking high-heeled sandals, a holdover from her days of wearing sandals in a tropical environment growing up, along with her adoptive mother and sister and practically the rest of the islanders. However, she'll mix it up every so often with some other fancy footwear, including boots.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Gets her fair share of this. She can be just as goofy as the rest of the crew.
** She sometimes uses Luffy's off-the-wall nicknames for people, i.e. "Weird Knight" for Gan Fall and "Tra-guy" for Trafalgar Law.
** Not to mention her ButtMonkey status. [[Creator/EiichiroOda Oda]] had a field day with Thriller Bark.
* OneWomanArmy: Nami has ''more'' than earned her place as this. She was already fairly powerful, but in the climax of the Totland Arc, she and Luffy alone were able to take down half of Big Mom's personal PraetorianGuard -- the only reason they even lost was due to the enemy having such superior numbers (and Charotte Galette [[NoSell no-selling]] her powers, without which she's just an athletic but overall weak human).
* OnlyOneName: Although several other characters, including some of the Straw Hats, also count, she's especially notable in that she ''literally'' has only one name. Being orphaned when she was a baby, it was her adoptive mom Bellemere who named her Nami, and her surname has been lost to history, as has her birth-given name. Bell-mère also had only one name, so no adoptive surname exists for her, either.
* OnlySaneWoman: Has bemoaned how their crew always seems to attract the weird ones. She actually ''cries tears of joy'' when [[TheStoic Robin]] joins.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness:
** Her running into Luffy's arms and crying over [[spoiler:Sanji's fate in Zou]] proves that the situation is serious.
** If Nami decides to cook, she'll charge anyone who wants to eat. [[spoiler:In the Totland Arc, when Luffy's [[LethalChef cooking skills]] depletes the Straw Hats' entire food supply and blows a hole in the roof of the kitchen, she decides to cook for free so it won't happen again (because she knows the consequences of letting him have free of reign of it again), earning a BigWhat from Luffy.]]
** Normally, Nami reacts very loudly and expressively to imminent threats or things that scare her. [[spoiler: However, when stuck with nowhere to go on the Sunny and with Big Mom about to drop an ''enormous'' tsunami over their heads, she quietly and calmly apologizes to Luffy over the "phone" (not really; long story short, [[ItMakesSenseInContext it's a mirror shard that acts like facetime]]) and simply says that she thinks they're done for while tearing up a bit. It seems that she ''actually'' believes they're about to die this time, and it's utterly heartbreaking]].
* OutOfFocus: Her dream as a child was to draw maps of all places she visited, and eventually a World Map itself; Arlong made her dream a nightmare, but when Nami parted ways with her village to join Luffy's crew, she expressed again her dream to draw maps; since then however, Nami isn't seen drawing maps of any kind – though one may assume that she's doing so ''off-screen'', because the map-making in itself (as opposed to achieving the goal of a ''complete'' World Map) is not necessary to move the plot forward. That said, she can be seen drawing maps in anime filler multiple times, as well as some of the openings and endings.
** She, Chopper, Sanji, and Brook during the second half of the Dressrosa Arc. They were absent from the story for more than a year and a half in the real world before reappearing (from December 2013 to July 2015).
* ParentalAbandonment: Nami's birth parents were never seen, but her and Nojiko being the only survivors of their hometown leaves no doubt about their parents' fate.
* PhantomThief: Nami can steal practically anything without anyone noticing (as seen in the Drum arc). However, she prefers to brag.
* PirateGirl: She wasn't ''at all'' proud to work with Luffy at the start of the series due to watching a pirate kill her mother and being enslaved by that same pirate at the start of the series. Thanks to Luffy intervening, however, she now embraces her role as a pirate, as it has brought her many great friends and ''lots'' of [[MoneyFetish money]].
* ProtectiveCharm: The Vivre Card that Lola gave Nami in Thriller Bark arc [[ChekhovsGun turns out to be this]] in the Totto Land arc. [[spoiler:Lola says that it's actually her mother's card - that is, Big Mom's, who ate the Soul-Soul Fruit; as Vivre Cards are representations of someone's soul, Big Mom's naturally have a profound effect when it comes to the "[[AnimateInanimateObject Homies]]" animated by Big Mom putting people's souls into them. Namely, they don't want to attack Nami because they feel Big Mom's aura around her.]]
* ProudBeauty: She's attractive, she knows it, and knows how to use it to her advantage.
* RedOniBlueOni: When compared to Robin, she's far more likely to raise her voice and express emotions (anger and frustration, but occasionally sorrow) or otherwise breakdown. Also, compare the visual aesthetic of the FieryRedhead Nami to the AloofDarkHairedGirl Robin.
* SandInMyEyes: When she's captured at Weatheria and put in jail for trying to steal meteorological equipment, she reads about Ace's death in the newspaper and breaks down crying, causing her captors to freak out and release her. She quickly reveals that it was just an act, and she makes off with the equipment she stole, along with one of the meteorologists, who notes that she still hasn't stopped crying.
* ScienceHero: Meteorological science, to be exact. She takes some issue with Sanji who dislikes the idea of [[spoiler:using a raid suit gifted to him from his family before they parted ways]] in part because it is science-based.
* ScreamingWoman: Though it's more so because she's only one (other than Usopp) perceptive enough to realize just how bad things are, Nami's shrieks of terror are a regular occurrence.
* SelfHarm: During the Arlong arc, after a [[DirtyCop corrupt Marine]] in league with Arlong "confiscates" the ransom money Nami had spent eight years collecting on his orders, Nami freaks out and starts repeatedly stabbing the Arlong tattoo on her arm with a knife, not stopping until Luffy makes her do so.
* SexyBacklessOutfit: She's given a fancy, backless dress as a thank-you present from Wanda for helping save the country of Zou. [[ChivalrousPervert Sanji]] was visibly pleased with it... which, in short, helped earn him a MegatonPunch.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: She isn't ashamed to show her body to others as long as they pay her afterwards.
* ShesGotLegs: Most of her outfits pre- and post-TimeSkip consist of short skirts and shorts that emphasize her legs, so they're often the first thing people see. It helps that [[WordOfGod Oda]]'s wife is Chiaki Inaba, the ''incredibly'' attractive actress who once played as Nami, so Oda based her character on her as a tribute. Her legs are PlayedForLaughs in the gag comic "Mugiwara Theatre - Red-Hair of Class 3-Sea Time", where she's depicted as a school bully who would wear a DangerouslyShortSkirt and charge anyone who saw her legs 100,000 belli.
* ShockAndAwe:
** Her Perfect Clima Tact, essentially a super-taser on a stick, can create lightning strikes and other electrical discharges under the right conditions. It has other weather related functions, as well.
** After the TimeSkip, she gets a substantial upgrade in the form of the Sorcery Clima Tact. She can now produce electricity that visually looks about as powerful as [[PsychoElectro Enel's]] 30,000,000 volt vari, which is a huge upgrade.
** After the Whole Cake Island arc, [[spoiler:she now controls Zeus, Big Mom's cloud homie, who can discharge very strong electrical attacks]].
* ShouldntYouStopStealing: For some time after her reason for stealing (i.e freeing her village) ceases, she still keeps her stealing habit.
* ShowSomeLeg: Nami tends to use her charm in this form to her advantage.
* SoBeautifulItsACurse: She brings this very trope into question during the Davy Back Fight, believing she'll be the one picked to leave the crew because of how attractive she is.
* SoleSurvivor: Along with Nojiko, who was a toddler at the time, they're the only survivors from their initial hometown after a pirate attack.
* SquishyWizard: While she is not gifted with superhuman speed, strength or toughness, in fact, she's probably the weakest (physically) character in the crew after Usopp, she's still manages to keep up in fights because her Climatact and all it's variations allow her a wide-variety of extremely versatile and powerful effects. She can emulate the powers of multiple Devil Fruits, and she can usually avoid getting hit by crafting illusions or just making herself invisible.
* StrongerThanTheyLook: While she's not a powerhouse like most of her crewmates, she's ''much'' stronger than she looks; [[https://youtu.be/Qee4mrP3Ajs?t=80 Sanji actually proved that she's strong enough to knock out a large shark with one kick]] while he was trapped in her body from a FreakyFridayFlip. Furthermore, her leg muscles are also strong enough to sustain his Blue Walk technique for several seconds.
* SurroundedByIdiots: Just before the crew entered the Grand Line, Oda was asked who had the highest and lowest IQ of all the characters introduced so far; he replied that Shanks's first mate, Benn Beckman, and Nami were the smartest (in that order), but he couldn't decide which characters were the dumbest because almost every other character is an idiot or a [[CloudCuckooLander space case]].
* TattooedCrook: Very important to her backstory, and how. She has a black tattoo (blue in the anime) on her left shoulder, which represents tangerines and pinwheels (a homage to [[GoodParents Bell-mère]] & [[CoolBigSis Nojiko,]] and [[ParentalSubstitute Genzo,]] respectively), where she used to have a tattoo for being a member of Arlong's crew.
* TheTease: She flirts with random villains to get information or to provide a distraction. Though as the show is NoHuggingNoKissing, her flirtations are rarely more than a wink and some tame compliments of the mark.
* TelescopingStaff: After the events of Zou, Ussop upgrades her staff with his Pop Greens, allowing it to extend to great lengths just by putting pressure on the handle.
* TeenGenius: When we are first introduced to her, she is eighteen and knows the ins-and-outs of sailing various kinds of ships, an almost entirely instinctive knowledge of climatology and meteorology, and an incredible knack at cartography that she had been refining since she was only ten years old. Eiichiro Oda states she was the third smartest character introduced in the East Blue Saga. The other two were pirates with years of experience, one being the first-mate of one of the most powerful men in the world. So yeah, she's smart.
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Used this on Sanji [[spoiler:to verbally wound him for being a FakeDefector in the Whole Cake Island arc]].
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Vivi's Girly Girl, though it's all relative as neither is very tomboyish or girly (Vivi's girliness came out once she returned to Alabasta).
** Also the more [[HotBlooded passionate]] and [[{{Tomboy}} headstrong]] of the two ladies aboard the Thousand Sunny, although her hobbies are much more girly than Robin's, which are just... [[NightmareFetishist ''weird'']].
* TookALevelInBadass:
** Nami's childhood flashback showed she was completely inept in stealing. As an adult, she is now at {{Kaitou}}-level when it comes to performing thefts.
** Every time she gets a new Clima Tact (i.e. in Alabasta, Enies Lobby, and after the timeskip), but special mention needs to go to her after the timeskip, where she electrocutes ''a whole bar'', takes down Fishman soldiers (who are 10 times stronger than normal humans, mind you) like they were nothing, and displays the ability to make herself invisible with mirages to steal a very important document from Fishmen on power-increasing steroids. Also, she is far less easily scared than before: for example, she doesn't even flinch when having a gun pointed against her temple.
** And then in the Whole Cake Island arc, she manages to [[spoiler:recruit Zeus, one of Big Mom's top homies, to her side as her slave/familiar]].
* TookALevelInIdealism: She used to be a shameless ClassyCatBurglar with a visceral hatred for all pirates as a result of a very traumatic childhood, where she was exploited by the pirate who killed her mother. After seeing the lengths to which Luffy, a young pirate, goes to protect and avenge her, she learns to trust the world again.
* TookALevelInKindness: Slowly as the series has gone on, but particularly after the timeskip. From forgiving Hatchi, [[spoiler:to hugging Usopp and Chopper when they reunite, to even immediately forgiving Jimbei for letting Arlong loose on East Blue,]] she's come a pretty long way from the JerkassFacade she started out with.
** Not to mention, she hits her crewmates far less often after the timeskip.
** Even before the timeskip she showed signs of this. When Robin was rescued and returned to the crew during Enies Lobby, Nami's immediate reaction was to {{glomp}} her.
* TragicBigot: Downplayed. Her experience with the Arlong Pirates left her not outright racist, but with the impression that all Fishmen are violent and oppressive toward humans, which made her initially reluctant to go to Fishman Island. Then the Saboady Archipelago arc shows her that Fishmen actually suffer far more prejudice from humans than vice versa, and Hachi, one of the less malevolent members of the Arlong Pirates, pulls a HeelFaceTurn.
* {{Tsundere}}: Gets pissed at the idiotic nature of her crew despite being very close to them; [[OnlySaneWoman completely]] [[SurroundedByIdiots understandable]], of course.
* {{Underboobs}}: Episode 560 conspicuously shrinks her bikini top to show them off.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Where she can keep several things, depending on the situation. Oda even jokingly calls it "the hidden Nami valley"!
* WalkingSwimsuitScene: Post TimeSkip, until the Zou arc, her outfits almost always included a bikini top. Kin'emon initially believes that she's been stripped (not that he's really complaining).
* WeakButSkilled: Her knowledge of the weather and her tools have gotten her out of tight spots more than once. Note the "weak" here is only in correlation to her crew, the strongest of whom can ''punch an entire city into two''.
* WeaponOfChoice: Her [[WeatherControlMachine Clima Tact and later Perfect Clima Tact]]. Even later, the Sorcery Clima Tact. Before those she used a normal wooden quarterstaff.
* WeatherControlMachine: Her Clima Tact, to an extent.
* WhoWearsShortShorts: Quite a few of her [[TheFashionista many, many,]] ''many'' different outfits feature a pair of these.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: She can't ''stand'' spiders or insects. When trying to get the South Bird, she understandably has an OhCrap moment when she sees them.
* WildTake: While hers aren't as often or expressive as [[CowardlyLion Usopp's]], there's only two situations that make her do this - 1) when she's scared, and 2) when her crewmates are being idiots.
* WingdingEyes: Whenever anything related to cash is mentioned.
* WomenAreWiser: Along with Robin, she often has to express common sense since few of her male crewmembers, especially her captain Luffy, possess it. On the other hand, Nami has her own blind spots (such as the promise of wealth) and has to be reeled in by the others in turn.
* YouAreNotAlone: Upon learning Arlong backstabbed her and stole her fortune she would have used to buy her village's freedom, she starts crying and begs Luffy for help. He simply puts his hat on her head and moves Zoro, Sanji, and Usopp to attack Arlong for making her cry.
* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious: Nami usually refers to Sanji as "Sanji-kun". [[spoiler:In Chapter 844, after Sanji puts on a JerkassFacade to protect both her and Luffy from being killed by his family and Big Mom, Nami (who's unaware of his true reasons) gives him an ArmorPiercingSlap and disowns him while calling him "Sanji". It's after this that Sanji sheds BrokenTears]].
* YouKilledMyMother: Her hatred over Arlong is because the pirate murdered her foster mother, Bell-mère.

[[caption-width-right:350:[[labelnote:Click here to see his Pre-Time Skip appearance]][[quoteright:239:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/usopp2_0.png]][[/labelnote]]]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''"The captain is a man who can change lies into the truth!!"'']]

->Voiced by: Creator/KappeiYamaguchi (JP), Creator/SonnyStrait (EN, Funi), Creator/JasonGriffith (EN, 4Kids) , Aldo Lugo (Latin American Spanish), Creator/PepeCarabias (SP)

-->''"I am the Great Captain Usopp!"''

Usopp serves as the crew's sharpshooter, and previously served as the (barely competent) repairman for the ''Going Merry''. He had a reputation on his home island of being a serial liar who claimed that pirates were attacking, which came back to haunt him when pirates ''[[CryingWolf actually attacked]]''. He's a rather boastful seventeen/[[TimeSkip nineteen]] year-old who likes to tell tall tales (several of which actually are or do come true, after a fashion), though he's more prone to hiding behind the stronger crew members like Zoro when he gets into a fight. However, when push comes to shove he is very dependable. He specializes in the use of a slingshot, called the Galaxy Slingshot (''Ginga Pachinko''), which he replaced with the Kabuto and later the Black Kabuto.

His dream is to better himself and become a brave warrior like his father Yasopp, who serves alongside Shanks, Luffy's idol. According to Oda, he is the physically-weakest member of the crew, and his worries about [[CantCatchUp not being able to keep up]] with the stronger members, with the resulting inner turmoil from that, put him at odds with Luffy during one story arc, and ultimately resulted in the creation of an alter ego dubbed Sogeking (a pun on "Sogeki" (Sniping) and "King", "Sniper King" in the English versions) which he uses to draw on his inner strength and courage.

His first bounty, as "Sogeking", was 30,000,000 berries. After the events of the Dressrosa Arc, the government finally recognized Usopp himself by name and gave him his current bounty of 200,000,000 berries. In addition, he was given a new official epithet to go with his real name: "God" Usopp.

Added DiffLines:

* FriendlySniper: He fits the trope to a T. Usopp is very personable and cheerful, always hanging with Luffy to have some fun together, and he has a knack for making friends at the right moment which has saved the day more than once. He can still snipe you from kilometers away far above the range of most guns.

** Averted as of after the Dressrosa arc, the World Government has caught up with his presence and real identity and has given him a 177 million Berries bounty, which increases further to 330 million Berries after the raid on Totto Land, currently making him the crew member with the third highest bounty after Luffy and Jimbei, but before Zoro.

** Every time she gets a new Clima Tact (i.e. in Alabasta, Enies Lobby, and after the timeskip), but special mention needs to go to her after the timeskip, where she electrocutes ''a whole bar'', takes down Fishman soldiers (who are 10 times stronger than normal humans, mind you) like they were nothing, and displays the ability to make herself invisible with mirages to steal a very important document from Fishmen on power-increasing steroids. Also, she is far less of a coward than before: for example, she doesn't even flinch when having a gun pointed against her temple.

* CantCatchUp: Usopp somewhat fixes this problem for her. She's not quite as strong as her crewmates, but she's got a respectable record, taking out Miss Doublefinger from Baroque Works and Kalifa from [=CP9=].

His first bounty was 77,000,000 Berries. He was, however, frequently unrecognized since his old wanted poster was a poorly-drawn composite sketch. His second bounty was 177,000,000 berries, and he finally gained an actual picture for his poster (albeit a goofy take of him with his typical "heart" eyes). Oddly, he is wanted alive, unlike the other Straw Hats and every other known criminal (who are all "dead or alive"). His current bounty is 330,000,000 berries, and with his family matters resolved, he is once again wanted dead or alive.
