Added DiffLines:

* Any time Luffy says "Gum-Gum..." when [[CallingYourAttacks calling out his attacks]], especially when facing powerful opponents. It just sounds plain silly next to awesome attack names like "Kong Gun" and "Jet Gatling".

Added DiffLines:

* Hodi defeating an entire pirate crew by himself while his hands are shackled is supposed to make him look like a credible BigBad. Unfortunately a few things get in the way. First, the captain of said crew only has a bounty of 73 million (well below New World average of 100 million). Second, Hodi had just taken ''three'' Steroid Pills, making him eight times stronger than normal. The result is like seeing Bruce Lee beat an untrained thug with one hand behind his back; it's not impressive, but embarrassing. Though it does help that Hodi was actually a case of NormalFishInATinyPond.

* Kaku. Just Kaku. Between his Devil Fruit, his use of outdated slang, and his English dub voice, YMMV if Funimation's dub of Water Seven/Enies Lobby will be taken seriously or not. However, for the vast majority of the intended audience, he is a successful instance of NarmCharm, and at times the most popular villain or former villain in the entire series.

* In the anime, whenever Ace is visibly shocked or disturbed by the goings-on throughout the Marineford Arc, he utters a bizarre "kkkkgkkkgk" grunt. And come the Marineford Arc, when [spoiler: he dies]] in the anime, he [[spoiler: goes splat on the ground]].

* As of chapter 574, someone has apparently '''finally''' broken the famed "no main character dies in ''OnePiece''". That person was [[spoiler: Luffy's (adoptive) brother Ace]]... and what face does [[spoiler: Luffy]] make to convey this tragic loss? [[http://read.mangashare.com/One-Piece/chapter-574/page015.html A passed out Pac-Man]]. (Warning: '''spoileriffic link!''') Not exactly the death of the ''Going Merry''.
** Also doubles as NightmareFuel. It's like his jaw is detached...

* The Arc of the Strawhat Crew trying to save Robin at Water 7 was, no doubt, very emotional. But this just breaks when you hear Luffy's hoarse, and god-so-loud voice of "ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNN!" after he defeats [[spoiler: Rob Lucci.]] It's just... wow.

* Editing in the 4Kids dub removed any drama and tension from any scenes involving guns, one of the biggest examples being very early in the series, when Helmeppo held Coby hostage with...

]] It's just... wow.{{Inverted}} to hell with the Creator/{{Funimation}} dub. Not only did they ''not'' edit any of the scenes, the dialog is arguably ''[[UpToEleven more]]'' risque than the ''subtitled'' version.

* When Usopp duels [[spoiler:Luffy over the Going Merry]], one of the most tragic moments in the series, he gives every indication that, despite being the weakest member of the crew, he knows how he fights and is going to put everything he has into the duel. He then makes his first moves... boasting about having 8,000 followers and using "Usopp Spell" to make [[spoiler:Luffy]] imagine himself in terrible pain. Granted, many of Usopp's techniques (especially those used in the duel) are used to make the enemy underestimate him while hiding their true effect, but the comically unbelievable lies felt out of place.
** The bit about the followers is an IronicEcho of their first meeting; viewers who didn't ''see'' their first meeting, however, will still be amused.

** In the same episodes, upon realizing that [[spoiler:he failed to save any of his Nakama]], Luffy proceeds to bang his head on the ground and kick his feet in the air like a little boy being denied a lollipop.

* [[InelegantBlubbering The depictions of crying, shouting or shocked people in One Piece]] are this. For the first, the characters usually have lots of snot running out their noses when they cry. Though it ruins the usual "romantic" depiction in fiction of a crying person, especially a woman, it's realistic, except that real people don't have so much snot running. But the Narm line was crossed when the characters were drawn drooling when they cry. That's sometimes too nasty to make the scene sad.
** Usopp being accepted back into the crew is probably the worst crying scene. It really ruins the drama when Usopp and Luffy are both bawling like a bunch of five-year-olds.
* The pirate Caribou had a mysterious Logia Devil Fruit that resembled mud. We learned the Japanese name for it is the [[spoiler: Numa Numa Fruit]]. Probably easier to call it the [[spoiler: Swamp Swamp Fruit]]
* Some parts of the Viz translation of the manga drop into narm because of following some of the more questionable name choices from the 4Kids CutAndPasteTranslation. For example, the Bird Bird Fruit and Dog Dog Fruit are called the "Tweet Tweet" and "Mutt Mutt" fruits, respectively. Not only does "Mutt Mutt" make no sense (the dog forms are very much exact breeds, not mixed "mutts"), it severely cheapens the {{Badass}} factor when both of Alabasta's guardian "spirits" proudly declare that they've eaten these ridiculous-sounding fruits.
** Plus, Viz's refusal to use breezy language removes the drama from some scenes.

** Plus, Viz's
fruits. The Finnish translation of the manga sees your "Tweet Tweet" and "Mutt Mutt", and raises you "Kisukisu-marja" (roughly, "Kitty Kitty Fruit"). Yeah, that's the official name for the Leopard fruit eaten by ''Rob Lucci'', one of the most vicious characters in the series. Made especially baffling because they could just as easily have gone with plain old "kissa", which simply means cat.

refusal to use breezy language removes the drama from some scenes.
