* PromotedFanboy: A fan of shonen fighting manga is now one of the biggest names in the business.



* ShrugOfGod: {{Inverted|Trope}}. It doesn't matter what the question is, Oda has an answer. No matter how crazy it seems. Or [[PowerPerversionPotential how perverted the question is]].



* ToughActToFollow: {{Averted|Trope}} as Oda has said that once One Piece is finished, he won't be doing anymore mangas to avoid this.

* NamesTheSame: Why he's apparently a fan of UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga.
* OneOfUs: A huge fan of ''Franchise/DragonBall'', ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'', Creator/TimBurton and {{Eminem}}? Not to mention marrying a super fine CosplayOtakuGirl, which must be the dream of every geek. He's also a fan of Creator/QuentinTarantino? His fannishness winds up in his manga, too: the Admirals are each based on a Japanese actor, Ivankov is based on [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Dr. Frank-N-Furter]], and of course ''[[Music/MichaelJackson Thriller]]'' Bark. As for main crew members, Brook is based heavily on Michael Jackson and [[Music/GunsNRoses Saul "Slash" Hudson]], and Franky was originally inspired by JimCarrey, especially as Film/AceVentura.

* CreatorBreakdown:
** It's speculated that his anxiety over his wife Chiaki's pregnancy was what inspired [[spoiler: the deal with Ace's MissingMom Rouge]].
** On a more humorous note, it's been joked (and outright stated) by the anime staff that the reason the amount of FanService spiked upward was because of Oda getting married and being horny for his ''very attractive'' wife (a well-known ex-CosplayOtakuGirl) all the time, to the displeasure of fans who liked the general lack of such things in the manga early on. For a guy who prefers not emphasizing romance that's not an obvious huge joke in his stories, he sure is a massive softie for his family.

** [[FunnyAfro Af]][[AfroAsskicker ros.]]
** Sunglasses are possibly a new appeal of his. Several characters suddenly wear sunglasses in their post-TimeSkip design (Robin, Smoker, Pappug), and the same goes for unusually many of the recently introduced characters (though several of the "older" characters also have sunglasses). However, a reason for this may also be that the characters are drawn with sunglasses because it hides their eyes, and if he doesn't have to think of new types of eyes for every new character design, the CastOfSnowflakes tendency is easier to retain (or at least he can trick the readers into thinking it is always retained).

* CastOfSnowflakes: Indisputably a master of this trope, especially as ''One Piece'' went into its later years. He ''may'' be starting to slack a bit off on this tendency recently by drawing sunglasses on the characters (check the entry of AuthorAppeal above), but even if he is, he is still much better than most of his mangaka peers.

** And of course, to ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. [[WordOfGod Oda himself]] declared Creator/MasashiKishimoto [[WorthyOpponent his friend and rival]] and thanked him for his hard work over fifteen years. In a recent interview, Oda states that Kishimoto called Oda "Sensei"( According to Kishimoto, it was because when they met, Oda was in Jump for two years already and made quite a name for himself while Kishimoto was still fairly new at the time.), which Oda answered :"Please, never call me like that again." He also states that ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' had, in a sense, drived him to make of ''Manga/OnePiece'' an even better story.

** Crossdressers. In the character design notes for ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', NobuhiroWatsuki says that Kamatari, a crossdressing character, was inspired by one of his assistants suggesting a character based on the pun, an "okama with a kama", or a "crossdresser with a scythe". Although the assistant is not named, because of this trope, everybody guessed that this assistant was Eiichiro Oda. In a later interview, Nobuhiro Watsuki confirmed that [[IKnewIt this guess was true]]. Watsuki explains that the original concept for Kamatari was a masculine looking crossdresser with effeminate mannerisms like the crossdressers in ''One Piece'' (Mr. 2 anyone?), but Watsuki had trouble drawing such a character and ended up making Kamatari [[DudeLooksLikeALady a pretty crossdresser]].
