** 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]].

** And of course, to ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. [[WordOfGod Oda himself]] declared Kishimoto [[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.

Something of a manga prodigy, he won several awards with his manga ''[[Manga/OnePieceWanted Wanted!]]'' at the age of seventeen. This landed him a job at Shonen Jump despite his young age, but he worked only as an assistant at first; it was five years before he began a series of his own, but even then he started ''One Piece'' at the ImprobableAge of 22. Despite having been in the industry for half his life, he is still known for having a fanboyish love of manga in general, especially ''Franchise/DragonBall''. His playful approach to his work has won him a lot of fans.

He often takes breaks after a couple of weeks, either because of research reasons or because of health issues, since it's known that he does not sleep very long a day. Those breaks last usually only a week, though.

Added DiffLines:
* ShipSinking: Oda could be an admiral himself with all the ships he sinks. Indeed, it seems he has a fondness for trolling the fanbase with false flags when it comes to any serious signs of romance, at least when it comes to the Straw Hats themsleves.

* 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. * ChekhovsGunman: HE SLEEPS WITH THEM!!! * CreatorBreakdown: It's speculated that his anxiety over his wife Chiaki's pregnancy was what inspired [[spoiler: the deal with Ace's MissingMom Rouge]].

* ThePerfectionist: Well, at least what his interviews give away. He wonít allow his assistants to draw anything that moves since it may result in an art shift. Check. He writes a movie script, and after that starts from scratch since he isnít satisfied with it and delays the whole production because of it. The end result? ''[[Anime/OnePieceStrongWorld Strong World.]]'' Check. Additionally, there are several breaks around the year when a new chapter won't appear in Jump and the explanation is always "The author doing research". * PromotedFanboy
