Franchise / One Piece

Go To

In a world of endless oceans and exotic islands, a Golden Age of Piracy has arisen following the execution of the infamous "Pirate King", Gold Roger. With his last words, Roger announced that he had stockpiled every piece of his treasure in a single location, and challenged the world to find and claim his hidden treasury for themselves.

Following this, aspiring pirates and treasure hunters from across the globe set out for the Grand Line, the most dangerous and unpredictable stretch of ocean in the entire world. There, they hope to find Roger's ultimate cache, which would come to be known as the "One Piece".

One Piece, a ridiculously popular manga by Eiichiro Oda, has also been adapted into an anime, movies, image songs and so on; THE most popular manga in Japan known for its universal appeal with stories of entire families reading it. Among the most popular manga ever created and busting multiple sales records and with over 345 million volumes in circulation worldwide, over 1000 chapters have been published since the series' beginning in 1997, and the anime adaptation, which started in 1999, is reaching 900 episodes and counting.


The works in this franchise so far are:

Anime and manga


  • Chopper Man: First humorous Spin-Off which sees Chopper as a superhero.
  • Chin Piece (2018-present): A humorous Spin-Off about a group of village kids led by Kusopp, who aspire to be great pirates like the Straw Hat Pirates.
  • One Piece Party (2014-present): Another humorous Spin-Off, with Super-Deformed characters and a Denser and Wackier brand of humor, not unlike Chopperman. The Straw Hats meet characters new and old, and have outlandish adventures with them.
  • One Piece Kobiyama Who Looks Like Koby Two Piece In A Pod (2018-2019): A series about Kobiyama, a middle school student who heavily resembles a younger Koby
  • Advertisement:
  • One Piece In Love (2018-present): A series about a One Piece fan club whose adventures parody stories they read from the manga.
  • One Piece: Youth: A series of ads by Nissin depicting the Straw Hats and other characters in a High School A.U.. Though it's part of the greater Hungry Days series, they collectively make up the second season of ads instead of being oneshots like the first season.
  • Shokugeki no Sanji: a handful of oneshots made by the writer-artist duo behind Food Wars!, focusing on Sanji and his cooking expertise.

Animated movies:

  • One Piece The Movie (March 4, 2000): First movie, only half an hour long. Takes place before the crew meet Sanji. The Straw Hats pursue the hoard of a legendary captain said to have plundered a third of the world's gold.
  • Clockwork Island Adventure (March 3, 2001): Another half-hour movie. Set in East Blue. The Straw Hat's ship is stolen. While in pursuit, Nami is kidnapped, which leads the crew to a island under oppression from her kidnappers, leading the crew to mount a rescue attempt.
  • Chopper's Kingdom on the Island of Strange Animals (March 2, 2002): Yet another short film. Rides on the large popularity of Chopper, and contains many a Green Aesop.
  • Dead End Adventure (March 1, 2003): First full length movie in the series. The Straw Hats participate in a boat race.
  • The Cursed Holy Sword (March 6, 2004): Focuses heavily on Zoro. The Straw Hats get involved in a mystical quarrel involving a cursed ancient artifact.
  • Baron Omatsuri and the Secret Island (March 5, 2005): The Straw Hats come to a secret resort island but all isn't as it seems. Differs widely in art style from the other movies, is much darker.
  • The Giant Mechanical Soldier of Karakuri Castle (March 4, 2006): The crew wind up in yet another treasure hunt, this time on an island governed by an eccentric clockwork inventor. Notable for having a different voice for Chopper at the time (due to Ikue Otani being on maternity leave) and gratuitous amounts of Gainaxing.
  • The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventures in Alabasta (March 3, 2007): This is a retelling of the Alabasta Arc, compressing it down to about an hour and a half, starting the action where Luffy first directly meets Crocodile. It is noteworthy for being the first part of the franchise to be dubbed and released by Funimation, coming out just a couple months after the 4Kids-dubbed Alabasta episodes aired.
  • Episode of Chopper Plus Bloom in the Winter Miracle Sakura (March 1, 2008): Like the last movie, it's a retelling of a story arc – this time, Drum Island. Only it's set in an alternate universe where all subsequent arcs from Alabasta to Post-Enies Lobby have already occurred. In other words, Robin and Franky are on the crew instead of Vivi, and they're sailing on the Sunny instead of the Merry.
  • One Piece Film: Strong World (December 12, 2010): The tenth movie, written by Oda himself. It takes place between the Thriller Bark saga and the Sabaody Archipelago arc. The crew run afoul of a pirate from Gold Roger's era who seeks to destroy East Blue. This is the second movie to be dubbed by Funimation, and is currently the only movie considered canon.
  • One Piece 3D: Straw Hat Chase (March 19, 2011): The first 3D movie, albeit only half an hour long. An eagle steals Luffy's hat and Luffy goes after it to get it back. Tries out some interesting 3D action choreography that would be hard to do in the regular Anime series.
  • One Piece Film: Z (December 15, 2012): Takes place between the Fishman Island arc and Punk Hazard arc, and is the first One Piece movie to be set after the Time Skip. The crew deal with a rogue Marine Vice-Admiral who wants to kill all pirates by any means necessary. Unlike the tenth, Oda took the position of producer, not writer. It was initially planned to be canon, but after too many inconsistencies with the Manga were noted, Oda decided to declare it non-canon instead. The third movie to be dubbed by Funimation.
  • One Piece Film: Gold (July 23, 2016): The crew visit a casino themed ship but the owner of it targets them for nefarious purposes. Once again, Oda serves as executive producer, and contributed for the movie. The movie also marks the first time it was released internationally to various countries (albeit limited releases) following its original run, some with the original language and some dubbed over. The United States showcase was be dubbed, thus making this the fourth dubbed One Piece film by Funimation.
  • One Piece Stampede (August 9, 2019): The crew participates in a treasure hunting festival of sorts and end up clashing against one of Gold Roger's crewmates. Announced in August 2018 at the end of the Episode of Skypeia special. Like Gold, Stampede was given international releases. An English version was released around October of the same year, becoming the fifth movie to be dubbed.
