Added DiffLines:

* BackupBluff: Usopp does this all the time, claiming to have thousands of followers waiting just out of sight (it's one of the first lies he's shown telling after his introduction), but since it's usually BlatantLies, half the time they see right through him.


* BadassesWearBandannas: Prior to the time skip, Usopp wore a bandanna and while he was a coward, he still had his badass moments when the chips were down.

* DropTheHammer: The few attacks that don't involve his slingshots seem to be this; a slight subversion in that two of his hammers are anything but deadly. Although both of them seem to have some sort of psychological effect on the target.

* NiceHat: After the timeskip, Usopp begins wearing a yellowish hat. He also wore one in the pre-timeskip movie ''Anime/BaronOmatsuriAndTheSecretIsland'', which was nice enough to make DJ Kappa want to steal it for his own.
* NightmareFace: [[spoiler:In the Dressrosa arc, Sugar feeds him a grape covered in [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce Tatabasco sauce]] that was actually meant for her. It made Usopp do such a horrific WildTake that Sugar was scared into unconsciousness, which rendered her [[RetGone toy powers]] useless, allowing everyone to remember and breaking Doflamingo's hold over Dressrosa.

Subverted when he abandons them and they still put all of their faith in him, believing that Usopp is planning to sneak on Trebol and Sugar, which causes [[DoubleSubversion Usopp to mature and confess for the first time of bein a liar]], while gathering all of his courage to fight Trebol and Sugar.

Added DiffLines:

* TheTrickster: He's not above using WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes style tricks to fool his opponents. Maybe the most outrageous of them all was the ''10 ton hammer'' he used on Perona. [[spoiler: It was actually a balloon, but he sold the "heft" of its "weight" so well that she legitimately though she was going to be crushed to death and passed out in fear.]]


Added DiffLines:

* UnderestimatingBadassery: He gets underestimated by enemies ''a lot'' due to his status as the weakest of the Straw Hats but well, ''he's the weakest of'' ''[[BadassCrew the Straw Hats]]''


* SmokeOut: One of his more common gadgets pre-Timeskip, and at least moderately useful all the way up to the CP9 saga. Strangely enough, his own crewmates are prone to dissing it, with Sanji even claiming it only took CP9 by surprise because of how cliché it is.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: A RunningGag of his to haul ass while things are getting good, and has done so at least once an arc. When he comes back though, he makes it count. Saving Robin before Spandam can take her through the Gates of Justice and beating Choo during the fight against Arlong's crew are just a few examples.

* TeamNormal: Along with Nami. It's more played in his case though, since he lacks any supernatural abilities or talents [[spoiler: (until he gets Observation Haki)]] and has easily the most mundane backstory. It causes some self-worth issues at one point, but he eventually gets over it and becomes an ever-increasingly BadassNormal.
* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: He tends to fight some of the trickier enemies, ones where even Luffy and the Monster Trio's usual fighting style and demeanor would be unsuited for. Some examples include Miss Goldenweek, Perona, and Sugar.

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: He unknowingly played a part in the "death" of the Straw Hats' old ship, the ''Going Merry'' - he spotted her Klabautermann, the living personification of a ship that was beloved and well-cared for. Spotting a Klabautermann meant that the ship it personified will be doomed. While the injuries the ''Going Merry'' sustained from the Straw Hats' adventures - specifically, [[WoundThatWillNotHeal her cracked keel]], it was Usopp that led to her getting those injuries in the first place, and led to his famous fight with Luffy over whether they should keep Merry or not.

** Physically the weakest of the crew (WordOfGod says he always will be, no matter what), but he's able to come out on top through a wide array of tools, gadgets and clever tactics. At this point, "weakest of the crew" just means he couldn't beat them in a straight-up fight... which is the one thing ''he wouldn't do anyway''.
** The best example of this for Sogeking would be sniping soldiers on top of the tower at Enies Lobby... where the wind was against him and not even guns can fire accurately. At a range guns can't even reach!
** An even better example is how the guy actually held his own against ''Luffy'', the inhuman powerhouse, for a respectable amount of time in their duel using only his intimate knowledge of his captain's fighting techniques and one day to get CrazyPrepared.
** His tools and gadgets now include summoning man-eating plants. Not to mention he's actually pretty buff now.
** Later, Usopp picked up on [[spoiler:[[AwesomenessIsAForce Observational Haki]]. Not only that but he's so good at it that he can accurately find and shoot a target from ''across a country''. Most people only use it to predict an opponent's moves in close combat]].
