* ''Manga/OnePiece'' is a series that is about dreams and freedom,, expressed through piracy. This is especially apparent with the [[MagneticHero transformative qualities of the protagonist]]. Of course, for ''major'' characters, this seems to translate to "leave whatever the hell you're doing and [[RuleOfCool do something unexpected]]". The emphasis on dreams goes both ways: with villains, the protagonist doesn't kill them, but leaves them alive [[AFateWorseThanDeath to watch their hopes and dreams crumble around them.]]
