Wiki / The Ship of Fools

Go To

Kishishishishishi!

The Ship of Fools is a Wikia for Fanfiction that are set within the world of One Piece. It distinguishes itself from other such wikia by its decision to keep its content within the confines of the canon material and the sheer amount of insanity that is displayed by its users.

It plays host to a number of characters, fighting styles, locations, groups, stories, and other material that are each original to the users whom made them. It is also a place of collaboration where users come together to create storylines as awesome as The Skyline War or the upcoming battle between the Shitennou and the No Beard Pirate Army.

The tropes here are meant to refer to the CREATIONS of the users and their creations alone; however, it should be noted that the characters that the users have adopted as their wikia identities so-to-speak are each considered to be one of their creations alongside their pages on the wikia. It should also be noted that events concerning this second class of creations, such as the FREAKING Madman War, are also opened to be troped upon.

Examples:

    open/close all folders 

     A to K 

  • A God Am I: In the canonical One Piece series, we had Enel. On Ship of Fools Wiki however, we have 2nd God (real name: Invictus D. Sol.) Like Enel, 2nd God is a Logia Devil Fruit user who ate the Hoshi Hoshi no Mi, making him a living star. As a result, he is by far one of the most potentially powerful characters on the wiki, with an ego to match. The very reason he's called 2nd God is because he believes there's already a 1st God in existence, whom he will replace after his human shell of a body has inevitably died.
  • Achievements in Ignorance: Played straight with Muchi. One of her more notable achievements is finding a key that was destroyed earlier.
  • Aerith and Bob: The sheer range of diversity in names can be pretty mind-boggling at times. Sometimes, you'll get a rather straight up, ordinary name, such as Leo D. Charlie. Other times, you'll get mixed results, like John Jango De Triezieme. Then there's those of the likes of Zero Hotaru, ????, M, and Guddo Rakku. And then there's Pretty Princess...
  • Affably Evil: Having been influenced by Blackbeard from the start, the creator of "No Beard" Sharp Francis made the guy become a bit of this and Faux Affably Evil (see below.) On the Affably Evil end, Francis is actually a rather pleasant guy to hang around with, so long as you aren't on his hit list of enemies or objectives. He doesn't act condescending in the slightest to his allies and subordinates, and even prefers to party alongside them as if they were equals. There's even a goofy quirk of his where he'll accidentally nick himself through scratching or picking his own nose, because of the razor blades under his fingers. And yet this is the same guy who believes in reveling in ruthlessness, is a hypocrite when it comes to loyalty, and is willing to let billions of innocent lives suffer to end his boredom. And of course, a majority of his underlings have picked up this habit too, making the whole No Beard Pirate crew filled with Affably Evil / Faux Affably Evil monsters.
  • Ain't No Rule: George Marley literally has this as his catchphrase. The devil fruit he ate apparently lets him create swords from willpower. "Sword" in this case seems to be just about anything with a handle and a sharp edge, and he takes delight in lampshading all the loopholes this leaves open.
  • All There in the Manual: Since it started as a fanon wiki, plenty of information that has yet to be revealed in any of the wiki's story lines can be found simply by looking up the characters.
  • Angst? What Angst?: Dimitri is amnesiac, and doesn't have any memories older than a month or so. He is apparently trying to figure out his past, but really doesn't seem to be too bothered by this otherwise.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Personified with Shanxus, the main antagonist of Grand Voyage. Tortured by his father in order to one day acquire the One Piece, after escaping and murdering his tormentors he now seeks to destroy the great treasure, in the hopes that doing so will rid him of the programmed desire to achieve it. Because of this, he views all other pirates as fools rushing to their deaths and has no sympathy when it comes to crushing them.
    • Later on, he expresses his beliefs that there is no good in the One Piece at all, and that all it is a magnet that draws people onto paths filled with misery and sadness. Granted, the main protagonists manage to reverse this opinion of his, but he still holds on to some elements of this.
      • He even views Dhahaka D. Knave as his 'rival', if only because Knave had both a somewhat similar and yet completely different backstory to him. Knave is in many ways his opposite, and yet in many ways his equal, and the two even become something close to friends in the final battle before Shanxus's death.
  • Arc Villain: Far too many to count. But we're going to try to do so anyway.
    • Fabricio el Tigre during the Tiger's Perch Arc of One Piece of Music
    • Power House CDXI, Fergus Drummond, and Typhos are the three members of the Big-Bad Ensemble which oppose the Pop Band Pirates during the Conscription Arc of One Piece of Music.
    • Pan, captain of the aptly named Four Legged Pirates, played the part of main antagonist for One Dream's Glory Arc.
    • One arc later, it was the bandit gang, the Kuro Lobos Gang, lead by Gray.
    • During the Hanuman Arc, the Arc Villain was a toss up between the slave traders whom previously kidnapped Hanuman and Chance, a Marine Commander.
  • Author Avatar: Word of God states this is how it all started for Jolly D. Chris. The guy was literally nothing but the author himself in the One Piece world. Over time however, the author began putting real thought into the character, until Chris eventually became the Nice Guy Idiot Hero pirate captain we see him as today.
  • Badass Cape: Rio owns one that has given him his famous nick name Red Wing.
  • Badass Crew: Many
  • Badass Family: The Blade family. The very utterance of the family's name draws attention to those who know of them.
  • Badass Grandpa: Galaxy Blade, full stop. Needless to say that if you're the head of the reigning, definitive Badass Family on Ship of ools Wiki, then you're very likely going to be a Badass Grandpa yourself.
  • Badass Normal: Just as common as the Devil Fruit wielding Badasses.
  • Bash Brothers: Dimitri Marcellus, George Marley, and Caden Byrn. Pick any two, and watch the fireworks.
  • Battle Couple: Piotr Mori and Samantha Grim. Apart from being an extremely formidable team in battle, they also have a happy relationship. Also doubles as an Odd Couple
  • Beast Man: Ship of Fools Wiki may very well be a zoo, given it has a collection of animal-esque beings inhabiting it. Ranging from the Wolf-Folk to the bigfeet, to the Nekojin, and even to the harpies.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: George Marley trips over his own feet, doesn't carry weapons even when he intends to fight, and altogether comes across as entirely none-threatening and laidback almost constantly. threaten anybody he cares about though, and he will break out some surprisingly aggressive swordplay in their defense. And despite his normal demeanor, he is extremely competent as a fighter.
    • The point when Jackson Livingstone started shooting holes in a brick wall using an outsize longbow evokes this.
  • Bi the Way: Thoosa; however, her tendency to kidnap anyone she takes a liking to (Read: '''EVERYONE''' but Zoan-type Devil Fruit Users) causes her to straddle the line between this trope and Depraved Bisexual.
  • Big Bad: There is a healthy number of Big Bads on the loose in the wiki. There are those who are a Big Bad for an entire story, and those who play the role for certain arcs. The known story encompassing Big Bads are:
  • Big Eater: Captain Swift. For the love of the cuteness of Baby Jesus himself, CAPTAIN SWIFT!!!
    • To be fair, Captain Swift's notorious appetite is a direct side-effect of his Devil Fruit.
    • One would be forgiven if they didn't see this coming; but Jolly D. Mona is one too. Despite always retaining her attractive figure, Mona is an avid fan of eating. The only reason we never see a Balloon Belly on her is because she uses Life Return to keep herself thin.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: The bigfeet race. 'Nuff said.
  • Blood Knight: There's a good number of these folk amongst the Ship of Fools Wiki, who'd love nothing more than a good old fashioned brawl with one another. One such person is "Ancient Fighter" Spike, who is of the In Harm's Way variety. The guy just isn't happy unless he has one foot in the grave.
    • Rio's lust and crave for battle has gotten him into some deep shit and his actual goal is to become the strongest pirate that ever lived.
    • On the villainous side, there's "Black Mage" Set. When not fighting, he tends to complain of how bored he is, and how he'd love to flex his muscles in combat. When in battle however, Set's inner Blood Knight really shows. Yes, he loves to fight, but there's a method to his madness (emphasis on madness.) You see, he also dips into the Ax-Crazy territory, since he justifies his love of fighting by stating his opponents are living punching bags he can use to hone his Fantastic Fighting Style, Enchantment on. Punctuated even further with his Verbal Tic, "crush" ("crushed," "crushing," etc.)
  • Bishōnen: Quite a few show up in the different stories that appear across the wiki. Some notable examples include Artemis.D.Falko, Scott.D.Rio, Tidus, Leon Spitman, Apollo, and Nova Blade.
  • Bottomless Magazines: Justified by loophole abuse in Dimitri's case; he can run out of ammunition, but he can just as easily make more of it and keep firing.
    • Like Dimitri, Wyatt of the Jolly Pirates is a Paramecia Devil Fruit user. Wyatt's power is known as the Yaku Yaku no Mi, which allows him to create ammunition out of anything he can get his hands on. As a result, Wyatt has never once been seen out of ammo in a fight. It could be contested that either Dimitri or Wyatt is the wiki's undisputed poster boy for this trope.
    • Also, Gage Yuy is capable of using weapons with limitless ammunition...but only if he creates each and every shot before it leaves the barrel. Combine this with his preference for Gatling Good weapons and it's a wonder how he does this.
  • Bungling Inventor: Zigzagged by Dimitri. His ship, the Second Wind, is entirely functional and works exactly as intended, but also makes it painfully obvious that he knows absolutely nothing about shipbuilding.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: The Demon Organization has a few members that come across as this; Gheist and Feral in particular. It's easy to forget that they're extremely dangerous mercenaries before they start fighting seriously.
  • Carnival of Killers: The Demon Organization again, effectively.
  • Cat Folk: The Nekojin. Among their people, "Catman Rinji" is particularly well known among the wiki.
  • Cherry Blossom Girl: Dracule Sakura, despite not seeming so at first glance, is indeed one. Firstly, there's the obvious fact of her first name being Sakura (which is Japanese for cherry blossom.) More subtle clues include her samurai theme, given she's the Jolly Pirates' expert swordsman. Then there's the fact that she was born on May 1st (which is during the Japanese cherry blossom festival, Hanami,) has all her air related sword techniques colored pink, and that one of them is even designed to look like a mass of flying cherry blossoms. Finally, there's her sword's name, "Momoran" (means Pink Storm in Japanese. It was a deliberate attempt on the author's part to invoke a cherry blossom image in the reader's head,) and her budding relationship with the Skyline Pirates' swordsman and first mate, Drake Lockheart.
  • Chunky Updraft: This is the effect of Knave's Hyper Mode transformation, similar to Luffy's steam or Chris's bubbles.
  • Coat Cape: Believe it or not, this is actually pretty rare. In spite of the fact that it's One Piece we're talking about here...
    • However, rare doesn't mean it isn't present. Captain Swift does this. It's why his crew is called the Black Coat Pirates.
    • Rackham Barnet has one as well, which thanks to his devil fruit power, is actually weaponised
  • Combat Pragmatist: In his first onscreen fight Byrn tries (unsuccessfully) to just shoot his opponent instead of fighting at close range. Dimitri later on does exactly the same thing, but not before punching his own foe in the face.
    • Many Marines have been asked Why Don't You Just Shoot Him? when it comes to their dealings with pirates and other criminals. Iroppoi is not one of those Marines. Because she does.
    • This is the whole point of Perikles' character.
  • Continuity Nod: A few times stories or chapters will take note of things that happened in canon, or in other people's work.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Notably averted with Thoosa. Even when she's kicking ass, Thoosa is still a massive perv. Though her level of competence may suddenly spike from time to time, her personality remains the same throughout it all.
    • The same can NOT be said for one Majestic T. Decaden, who plays this trope very straight. Most of the time he is a Dirty Coward of a Royal Brat with a talent for throwing all of his share of the pirating onto his fellow Pop Bands. However, endanger his livelihood and you're quickly find out why it's a bad idea to bother The Strategist who change all of you into People Puppets within the blink of an eye.
    • Another example from the Pop Band Pirates is Soraya Tigresa. Under normal circumstances, she is as much of a Yamato Nadeshiko as a Pop Band can get. But when trouble is afoot, she quickly becomes a Lady of War.
    • George Marley from the Obsidian Pirates. outside of fighting he comes across as clumsy and perhaps a bit too laidback. In the combat tournament at Whisky Peak, however, he fought against a pirate captain and won, arguably fairing better than Byrn did against said captain's right hand man. Later on, Livingstone from the same crew qualifies.
    • Aimi Sora counts as well. Usually the weakest member of her crew, and the least useful in a fight, if you threaten her captain she'll reveal what she's really like.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Right after Jessica first sees Dimitri's devil fruit power, she comments on a loophole in the way it works. Two chapters later, said loophole allows him to replenish his lost ammunition in a fight. In fact, almost everything the Obsidian pirates used to fight in that story was hinted at in the first chapter, even including Jessica's bottle of Sake.
  • Chick Magnet: Rio has (unintentionally) attracted eight females who are without a doubt madly in love with him. We've got Angela Maybel, Alidia Kosaka, Isabella, Akira, Mingo Kosaka, Scott.Valma, Misaki Miyora, and Liliana. The author The BlackDuelist has even stated that this is a reference to how popular Rio's original character was in the manga/anime known as Negima.
  • Child Prodigy: Timber, shipwright for the Jolly Pirates, seems to fit the bill. Intuitional craftsmanship? Check. Reverse engineering skills? Check. Improbable Age? Check. Created remote control technology and the world's first seen battery? Check. Became a foreman for Dock Six of Galley-La at a young age? Check. The fact he's known back home as the Prodigy? Check.
    • Scott.D.Ren qualifies for this trope as well, becoming a Marine Captain at the age of fifteen years old. You gotta give the kid some credit.
  • Climbing the Cliffs of Insanity: Jolly D. Chris does this after defeating the half giant, half bigfoot pirate captain, Yeren. It's probably one of his more badass feats, seeing as he just defeated a powerful opponent who's left him physically exhausted and he now has to cross the Red Line to reach the New World. Problem here is, his crew is miles underwater while he's up on dry land. So what is Chris' brilliant solution? He decides to scale the entire Red Line alone, so that he can meet up with his crew on the other side. Let it never be said Chris isn't a true Determinator.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Jackson Livingstone has this in spades. even when he is being relatively sane he managed to convince himself that he was a figment of somebody else's imagination, and told them they were hallucinating him. They'd be forgiven for believing him, given that he literally has a tree growing out of his head.
    • Also, Aimi Sora can be this following her Heel–Face Turn.
    • It's safe to say there's quite a few of these guys running around. Timber of the Jolly Pirates is another good example of this trope, seeing as he follows in the footsteps of the eccentric Franky from the canon series.
  • Confusion Fu: Jolly D Chris has no definite fighting style, but his clay body can assume just about any shape, or produce almost any weapon. With a bit of improvisation and creativity, he often defeats opponents simply because they do not know what is coming.
    • George Marley from the Obsidian pirates practically runs on this. For starters, he doesn't carry normal swords, despite being a swordsman. Then, when he does draw his weapons and start fighting he uses some seriously weird counterattacks, such as flipping over his opponent's head or dodging in ways that look a lot like breakdancing. In one case, he even defeated an opponent by abandoning his weapons entire and sweeping their legs with a sliding tackle
    • more generally, Jester Kenpo is a martial art based around this. Along with it's resemblance to circus skills, it inverts many common practices in a fight in favor of random movements and deliberate misdirection and loud distractions.
  • Cool Mask: A Demon Organization signature, in order to keep them Shrouded in Myth.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: This happens a lot, often to exploit the Worf Effect.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Dhahaka D. Spade is the most prominent person to suffer from this trope, having lost all will to oppose the World Government after the infamous Yama Massacre that lead to his wife being slaughtered. However, after meeting with his son, Knave, after the Strong War, he slowly begins to pull himself out of this and is even contemplating going back into action permanently after the timeskip
  • Detect Evil: Captain Swift can do this by instinct.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: The whole principle of the Sexy Style. Fortunately, or the other thing, only two people practice it.
  • Doomed Hometown: Kai de Avalon's people met a bad end.
  • Drop the Hammer: Dimitri vs Nelson ends this way.
  • Elemental Powers: As in the original source material, Logia Devil Fruit give this to the user. However, many of the elements are somewhat stranger than the ones seen in One Piece, such as clay, photoreactive particles, and time
  • Emotionless Girl: Every so often, one of these will appear on the wiki, depending on the writer. One that's gained a strong following is Dracule Sakura, the swordsman of the Jolly Pirates. In her case, she's completely unaware of her stoicism, and as a result, will make attempts to act more lively if this is ever addressed to her. Another notable example is Alidia Kosaka, the assassin of the Red Wing Pirates. Interestingly, both authors admitted to one another that their respective Emotionless Girls were based on the same fictional character, Shigure Kosaka.
    • Not So Stoic: This applies to Dracule Sakura. Every once in a while, we'll see Sakura manage to crack a warm smile, cry a river of tears or even unleash her unbridled rage, if she's provoked enough.
  • Everything's Deader with Zombies: The wiki sometimes manages to produce a character that would do Gekko Moria proud. Among them is Tombstone Grim, a man who ate the Human Human Fruit, Model: Zombie. His main powers include shifting between being alive and undead, and infecting others with a zombie virus to in turn, zombify them as well. Grim can even revive others from the dead ad infinitum. Needless to say, this makes him an imposing threat amongst the wiki. And then there's the Marine base he was ordered to lead; G-6. It's essentially a Marine version of Thriller Bark.
  • Exact Words: the Wham Line in The Legacy of Captain Havoc; Captain Wrath had told Darstan that Someone would carry on the family. He'd never said who that someone was.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Having been influenced by Blackbeard from the start, the creator of "No Beard" Sharp Francis made the guy become a bit of this and Affably Evil (see above.) On the Faux Affably Evil end, No Beard plays the role of a sociable, charismatic captain to his crew, which naturally extends to his entire army of criminals. And yet, despite telling them traitors are scum, No Beard actively lies through his teeth whenever he can get away with it and doesn't mind backstabbing others. To make matters worse, he indulges in public shows of executing anyone who crosses him; even once killing off a traitor's family and destroying his home with a good ol' Slasher Smile on his face. All too enforce obedience amongst his crew. Naturally, his crew follows their captain's example, and isn't above acting kind to hide their truly nasty personalities.
  • Flash Step: Like in canon, there are characters who move so fast, it's hard to track them with the naked eye. The vast majority of characters use Soru, though there are those who use more inventive methods. And then there are those few who manage to go even faster than that. Nova Blade became known as the Blur for this very reason.
  • Gass Hole: Jolly D. Chris is a prime example of this. He's rather (in)famously known as "Stinky Chris" by the Marines, simply because of his freakish bowels. Unfortunately for those around him, not only does Chris have trouble containing his belches and farts, but he's also highly embarrassed about his problem too. Needless to say, not only is this blatant toilet humor on the part of the author, but it also serves as an easily accessible Berserk Button on Chris' part. Mention his gaseous odors at your own risk.
  • Gorgeous Gorgon: The Cyclops Marine, Medusa, fits the bill nicely. Legends regarding G-6 and its hordes of monsters refer to a dragon that guards the fortress. Her name? Medusa of course. As to be expected of this trope, despite her cyclops heritage and being half snake due to her Zoan powers, Medusa isn't exactly ugly.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Drunken Devil Monroe. Notable in that it is never the same language twice, and is deliberately invoked; Word of God says that his speech was run through an online translator even when the writer knew the language well enough to do a better job. Including when his speech was in English. Possibly Justified, given that he was almost certainly drunk for his entire onscreen time so far, but mainly just Rule of Funny
  • Hidden Depths: Without a shadow of a doubt, Thoosa qualifies for this. She comes of as being nothing more than a Loveable Sex Maniac of a Starving Artist - that is until she uses either her Cyclops' Specials to become more muscular than you'll ever be or her Devilish Concerts to inflict a VERY bad case of Explosive Decompression onto you.
    • The Legacy Of Captain Havoc is more or less built on this. After establishing the Captain himself as a ruthless killer, the rest of the story progressively adds context and reveals more about his past and character.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Jessica only starts to figure out how to use her Devil Fruit four chapters after she first eats it (in universe, nearly a week). It isn't clear whether she simply tried not to think about it or literally had no clue how to activate it, and there is evidence both ways.
    • Jolly D. Chris also struggled through the same problem in his youth. After eating the Nendo Nendo no Mi at the age of 8, Chris had no idea how to properly use its powers, let alone use them at all. He spent the next 10 years developing his powers from simply transforming into clay and flailing about wildly, to creating clay weapons. Albeit, his case wasn't anything like Jessica's; seeing as he clearly didn't have a clue in regards to his Devil Fruit powers.
    • Jonathan D. Swift also fell prey to this trope shortly after eating his Soku Soku no Mi. Clueless as to how it works, all he could do was run around belligerently in a confused state.
  • Hollywood Cyborg: Dimitri Marcellus is a prominent example of this, although it's not uncommon elsewhere
    • The World Government affiliated cyborgs, the Guardrones (of which those like Forge Mary, Dracule Miraak, Kurenai Sora and Via were turned into,) also qualify.
    • And then there's Isaac Giovanni, who's only organic feature is his brain, a la Dr. Gero from Dragon Ball Z.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: Perhaps the greatest offender of this trope is Iyaga, the 3rd division commander of the Colossal Pirates. Word of God says Iyaga was intended to be as bad as Absalom was in canon. It shows, given Iyaga has kidnapped quite a few women he's fancied over time, managed to brainwash them into serving him in his division, and even sees them as his harem of wives. If that isn't enough to drive the point home, the author gave him the alias of "Disgusting Iyaga." He later attempts this very method on Rose Glory shortly after the time skip, only to get his ass soundly kicked by her and X Aphro afterward. And bonus points go to having a Devil Fruit power that works well at restraining and binding others.
  • Implacable Man: Logia Devil Fruit users, as in the main canon.
    • Piotr Mori deserves a mention here simply because of how far he takes this trope; Apart from having a logia power, he also wears armor that can withstand attacks, and block out the usual logia weaknesses if you hit it, assuming he doesn't just block normally. If you damage the armor, it absorbs his logia element to repair itself. And before you even get a clear shot at him, you have to go through his partner, Samantha. Her ability? A near perfect defense. Which she can recover by absorbing extra bits of Piotr's armor. No surprise that they're basically The Dreaded
  • Implausible Fencing Powers: The various swordsmen of Ship of Fools Wiki are truly a sight to behold when in battle. They can perform flying slashes made out of compressed air, make paper-thin cuts into even the most durable of materials, fight at such speeds that even the human eye can't follow, and much more. One of them, Drake Lockheart, even has a sword fighting style revolved around materializing his willpower into a Battle Aura.
  • In Harm's Way: Spike of the Jolly Pirates lives and breathes this trope. He gets into fights with any dangerous person he can find, just because it's the easiest way to endanger his life; not to mention he purposefully limits himself to make it far more challenging for him. Then there's the fact he's aiming to become Pirate King because the journey along the way is considered almost suicidal by many within the One Piece world; something which only delights the adrenaline junkie.
  • Intangibility: While Logia Devil Fruit powers roughly work in the same way, the most definitive power seen on the wiki is that of the Feizu Feizu no Mi, eaten by Chiyome Lys. With it, she makes for an overly effective spy and assassin, and a very dangerous foe in battle.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Gage Yuy towards the Black Legacy Pirates.
  • The Juggernaut: The Demon Organization have a fighter literally codenamed Juggernaut, who is apparently capable of taking on an entire army singlehandedly.

     L to Z 
  • Large Ham: Jackson Livingstone, almost constantly.
    • Isaac Giovanni of the No Beard Pirates seems to be this too. Says a lot about the guy that he named his cyborg body, "Mr. Monster," simply on the grounds that every self respecting mad scientist needs a monster. Then there's his overly dramatic mannerisms and speech; such as shouting "FOR SCIENCE!"
  • Leeroy Jenkins: A textbook example in the first chapter of Obsidian Voyage; Byrn and George spend nearly a paragraph discussing who should fight who in order to allow Dimitri to save his strength. They come up with a plan just in time for Dimitri to ignore it completely and take out the first opponent on his own.
    • Scott.D.Rio and Riku are two of the greatest offenders of this trope. After carefully calculating a plan that would give them advantage, the Red Wing Pirates, The Saiza Bounty Hunters, and Queen Akira's subordinates weren't expecting them to do that.
    • There's also Jolly D. Chris. No matter how sound or logical the plan, Chris always seems to impulsively forget it at the last second and go on doing as he pleases. Needless to say, it's gotten him and his friends in danger numerous times.
  • Light 'em Up: One Piece gave us Admiral Kizaru. Ship of Fools Wiki responded in kind with the World's Fastest Pirate, Nova Blade.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: And that's just counting the characters that have appeared in anyone's storyline. The number of pages is downright insane.
  • Loveable Sex Maniac: Perhaps due to the popularity of characters such as Sanji and Brook from the canonical series, Ship of Fools Wiki has a good number of these types of folk on the loose as well. Among them are:
    • Thoosa, perhaps the greatest recent example on the wiki, due to her bisexuality and lack of proper impulse control.
    • There's also Leo Osiris, of the Skyline Pirates; acting as their definitive ladies' man.
    • The Jolly Pirates have two of them, much like the Straw Hats do. One is X Aphro, (pronounced "Cross Afro,") who fills the role of the ship's doctor, while also going about life as a cross dresser. Due to his Ambiguous Gender, Aphro is either a heterosexual man or a homosexual woman. The other is Drazil, who would be considered a Horny Devil in every sense of the word if he were literally demonic (he belongs to a race of subterranean islanders known as Hellpieans; humans with demonic features.) Unlike Aphro, who first tries to romantically woo the object of his affections before moving on to step 2, Drazil is blunt and straightforward (not a euphemism, we promise.) Drazil will be more than happy to grope any breast he sees and invite any shapely figure to his quarters for the night.
    • Playing for the heterosexual women's side is Euthemia; a Marine well known as the "Manhunter" for various reasons. In this case, it's pretty obvious why she's chasing down men. In fact, she became a Marine just so that she could come into regular contact with good looking male pirates (her favorite kind of guy, mind you.)
  • Made of Iron: Dimitri Marcellus, quite literally.
    • Knave has incredible endurance and strength, most notably taking a canon blast for Stormy Buchanan and later taking a whole Pacifista blast to protect his crew.
  • Magnetic Hero: Rio has the ability of gathering allies just like Luffy does, which in turn has allowed him to have powerful allies ready to follow his command. Even his own crew are fiercely loyal to him, especially the females who are all madly in love with him and there's also the relationship he has with his first mate, Ike who has taken an interest in him.
  • Manchild: This is one of two fundamental concepts that helped to create Jolly D. Chris. The other being the fact he originally started off as an Author Avatar. However, Word of God has stated that Chris' man child tendencies were a result of his status as an Author Avatar anyway, since the author admits to being a man child himself.
    • This may describe the Jolly family as a whole. Chris' older cousin, Kris, also has a playful and immature attitude; and while she denies this is the case, Mona, Chris' own mother, has at times acted rather childishly herself. She even pointed out one time that her son seems to take after his father.
    • Knave's predominant trait. Knave is a man-child in every sense of the world, having the brattiness and stubbornness of a young boy. This is usually attributed to him having technically no formal schooling as a child.
    • Dimitri has shades of this quite often. Given that he's amnesiac it's at least partially justified.
  • Meaningful Name: While various authors of the Ship of Fools Wiki will at times add special meaning to the names they choose for their pages, it should be noted that the author of One Dream makes frequent use of this trope; almost absurdly so. This doesn't stop at characters either. He even puts untold thought into the names of locations, vehicles, the title of his story, its chapters, weapons and even fighting techniques. One may even wonder if his (ab)use of meaningful names is justified or not.
  • Mentor Ocupational Hazard: Urufu, Spike's adoptive father, met with this before the story started. Similarly, Caspian's own mentor, Gally, died fighting a group of pirates.
  • Mistaken for Racist: Hilariously inverted by Perikles when he was exposed to Fabricio el Tigre's bigotry. From his actions, Perikles assumed that El Tigre was a bigot. He wasn't wrong about this. But he was wrong about whom El Tigre was being a bigot towards.
    • "Assuming that I'm the supposedly misguided sympathiser you spoke of, are you trying to tell me that you're going to spare their lives - but kill me - BECAUSE you look down upon them but see me as an equal? Oh that's some prejudicious bullshit! Why do these bastards get to live when they're doing the exact same thing I'm going to die for? Women and slaves deserve to die just as much as men do damn it!" - Perikles, One Piece of Music Chapter 8
  • Monster Mash: The Demon Organization's motif; Vampire, Witch, Werewolf, Mummy and ghost themed characters are all in attendance, along with a steampunk devil/Frankenstein's monster, a cloaked sorceror type, and a Giant Marshmallow Man
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Marine Commander Chance, hands down. Living on an island-ship hybrid based off of the Las Vegas strip doesn't help any either. The guy tends to fall easy prey to three key vices; gambling, alcoholism and a love for the ladies. And yet, if you aren't a pirate or other form of criminal, he's a pretty nice guy all around.
  • Mundane Utility: Dimitri infamously used a flamethrower to cook breakfast early in his storyline.
    • Remember Ship of Fools sailors; in case you're ever stuck in the Calm Belt, you can use your emergency Rose Glory as a propulsion device via her Shandian Jujitsu.
  • Musical Assassin: There are a few musicians aboard Ship of Fools Wiki that kick quite a bit of butt with just sound alone. Jean Reis being one of them. Heck, there's even a whole fighting style based around the concept, called Symphonia.
    • That said, weaponized sound is Thoosa's Berserk Button. More than one combatant has learned this the hard way.
  • My Kung Fu Is Stronger Thanyours: Pretty much Rio's entire goal in life is to become the strongest fighter that sails the seas. Also, he's awaiting the day when he can fight his father one on one in the New World.
    • While he hasn't given up on his dream, he has found another dream that he considers equally important which is protecting his crew.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Amongst the Loads and Loads of Characters, there are some notable individuals with rather intimidating names. Examples include:
    • "Demon Eyes" Static Dyson, AKA "The Demon of the World."
    • Tombstone Grim. Named after grave headstones and the GRIM FREAKING REAPER. (Also helps that he has zombie powers and is an amoral bastard.)
    • Akuma. Doesn't get much worse than someone named after the devil himself.
    • Manson. Just... Manson. Ya know, named after Charles Manson. The cult leader. Who lead his cult in killing innocent people. And attempted to start a race war.
    • If Yomi's face doesn't scare you, then his name should. It's derived from the Japanese underworld. Plus, there's the fact he's known as the Lunatic.
    • Piotr Mori. Knight of the Dead. nuff said.
  • Nice Hat: Dimitri sports a very nice black tricorn, and is apparently rather protective of it.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: As to be expected from a fanon wiki, there are a LOT of these.
    • Power House CDXI is a Half-Human, Half-Birkan, Puppet Cyborg Bandit-turned Pirate. To make matters worse, during the Davy Back Fight of Nal-mosic he is rumored to be a zombie - alongside a number of other things - due to the fact he is incapable of being "killed" as a result of the nature of his Devil Fruit Power. To make the matter the worst of all cases, the author intends on making him a freaking NINJA of all things at a later date.
      • To make a long story short. Power House CDXI is a Half-Human and Half-Birkan Ninja, Pirate, Zombie, Robot, Bandit, Puppet, Cyborg!
  • No Name Given: The Messenger and The Hunter are known by title only.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Thorstein Weiss is gradually shown to be extremely dangerous by his fight against a tavern full of drunken pirates and Bounty hunters. All that is shown are the results; the brawlers are soundly beaten and concussed, Weiss turns out to be entirely unscathed, and the Taven is literally upside down
  • Prophecy Twist: Of a sort, in the Legacy Of Captain Havoc. Captain Wrath's last words to Darstan, that somebody would continue the family, add completely different context to his letter to Havoc, revealing that his last and most valuable treasure is actually his hidden son. On the flipside, Darstan, who never saw the letter, believed Wrath was simply talking about Havoc, making it a prophecy twist for both of them.
    • On a more hilarious note, near the start of Legend Of The Godsend John Jango lists every single thing he does during the story, in order, down to the fine details. Because he's seeing it in a different order to everyone else, it sounds like utter nonsense on first viewing.
  • Red Baron: As with One Piece, anyone with a bounty has one.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: A few examples. The Obsidian Pirates have Caden Byrn and George Marley, although oddly they swap around. Byrn is normally the blue, being reserved and moody compared to Marley's outgoing and carefree. But in a situation Byrn is the quickest to act, usually with a blunt and aggressive solution, while Marley is more passive, and on more than one occasion has to reign Byrn in.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: Though they aren't the only clothes he wears, Knave's two main "adventure/battle" outfits throughout the series all include a very long scarf, which is VERY prone to flowing in the wind.
    • Caden Byrn of the Obsidian pirates sports one, but tends to pull it up over the lower half of his face. With his sunglasses as well, he almost becomes a heavily downplayed case of The Faceless.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: An odd variant occurs in Legend of the Godsend. Deccaden prevents the Bad Future the story is set in from ever happening. Not by travelling through time himself, but by eliminating every possible good outcome for the person responsible, who, being capable of seeing the future, therefore abandoned their plan before it was even put in motion.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: It's this trope which Jolly D. Mona tends to be remembered for, despite the fact she's more obsessed over age than with nudity. Thing is though, because she retains a nigh-eternal appearance of youthfulness, she came to the logical conclusion that if you look good, then you should share your beauty with the world. ...By randomly stripping down to your underwear in public.
    • Now while Alidia does not like perverted acts towards her from people like Tidus, she has absolutely no qualms about wearing nothing but a revealing bikini on her ship. In fact, she even asked Tidus if it would make Rio happy to which he said it probably would. Guess what she decided to do next.
  • Sherlock Scan: Dimitri does this quite a bit.
  • Shock and Awe: Enel isn't the only one with shocking Devil Fruit powers. There are a few other characters on Ship of Fools Wiki who can harness electric current in one way or another.
    • Dieu-le-Veut Veronica, captain of the Valkyrie Pirates, ate the Banrai Banrai no Mi. This allows her to control a fictional form of particle known as Zueton particles. Among other abilities, these particles unleash electric discharge, which Veronica can mold into various attacks.
    • Timber managed to get a hold of some Zueton particles himself; and after the two year time skip, he revealed a series of new weapons that can electrocute foes, amongst other things.
    • Fabricio el Tigre ate the Pari Pari no Mi, which essentially makes him a living superconductor. It grants him immunity to electricity, improves his nervous system and allows him to conduct electricity throughout his body.
    • Ignis D. Hiro ate the Denchi Denchi no Mi, which turns him into a human battery. This allows him to produce electricity, and is immune to it as a byproduct.
  • Shapeshifter Weapon: Dimitri's power; he can transform parts of himself into any inanimate object he has touched, with exceptions. He mainly uses this to produce a lot of random weapons while fighting.
    • Many Logia powers also do this. Jolly D Chris's clay weapons are the most distinctive.
  • Shout-Out: Many, many references, all over the place.
    • To Doctor Who. John Jango de Triezieme can use time manipulation to apparently heal himself. the technique he uses is literally called "regeneration".
    • The Creeper is fairly obviously based off the explosive enemy from Minecraft, and also has an appearance based off the Creeparka meme.
    • Legend of the Godsend alludes to Bioshock Infinite. It even opens with the protagonist in a boat being rowed towards a lighthouse by mysterious ferrymen.
    • Played for Nightmare Retardant with Juggernaut, who turns into marshmallow as a reference to Ghostbusters.
  • Simple Staff: Dimitri carries one around, but doesn't seem to use it much.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Believe it or not, Thoosa is smarter than she looks. A LOT smarter. Jolly D. Chris is also rather famous for this.
    • Dimitri Marcellus seemingly inverts this trope; his introductory scene sees him pull a Sherlock Scan on a "person of interest" he'd only just seen, and guess three quarters of her backstory long before it was fully revealed. Moments later he undermines his apparent status as The Smart Guy in a comical fashion.
    • Because she acts like a complete airhead most of the time, Jean Reis has a tendency of pulling this off too.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: On Livingstone's island, even some of the trees are explosive.
    • They will be if Creeper has her way.
  • The Spook: The Hunter. Apart from the title, and their distorted metallic voice, we know next to nothing about them, not even what they look like clearly.
    • The Demon Organization has shades of this, but ultimately are more Shrouded in Myth than anything. However, Juggernaut stands out for being completely unexplained among the entire group; no real name, no backstory, not even a voice to give hints about personality.
    • The World Government apparently employs a few agents of this type who only go by codenames. The Messenger is the most noteworthy example.
  • Stealth Prequel: The Legacy of Captain Havoc is a stand alone story for the most part, but the ending leads into the start of Obsidian Voyage, with Weiss gaining a devil fruit and hatching a plan to find a worthy opponent. In addition, Captain Havoc is revealed to be Caspian's uncle, expanding further on his backstory in Obsidian Voyage.
  • Super Mode: Quite a few characters have this, depending on what their powers are.
  • Supernaturally Young Parent:
    • Jolly D. Mona cheats the Grim Reaper by using Life Return to physically force her body to look young for far longer than it should. In fact, this is all because Mona has an irrational obsession over being young. Thus, being called old or anything of the sort is a definite Berserk Button for her.
    • Destiny Blade, mother of Nova Blade. Like Mona, she uses Life Return to maintain her youthful appearance. Unlike Mona however, Destiny takes it a step farther by applying her amazing intellect and the use of her laboratory to support her Life Return abilities. Thus, if Mona has this trope in spades, then Destiny clearly takes it Up to Eleven.
  • Super Speed: SO many characters have this. So many...
    • Special mentioned goes to Jonathan D. Swift who has this as his Devil Fruit power. Needless to say, he kicks LOTS of ass with it. Sometimes literally.
  • The Ditz: Blade D. Kris in a nutshell. In fact, this was partly the inspiration behind the character, as her author noticed he didn't have a genuinely stupid character in his story at the time; and so he designed Kris to fill the role as One Dream's resident dunce. Bonus points go to the fact that the trope is literally Kris' nickname.
  • The Dragon: Much like how there are multiple Big Bads on the wiki, there are also numerous Dragons working for them. Among them are:
    • Medusa, Nos Bram and faux Psychopomp Nephthys of G-6. They are all Marine Rear Admirals who are each given an entire unit of Marines to command as per their Vice Admiral's orders. This makes the three of them active Co-Dragons in this case. The Vice Admiral in question being none other than the amoral, loathsome and creepy Tombstone Grim. This only lasted throughout the G-6 arc however, as Grim would later be expelled from the Marines after the time skip, and join forces with the No Beard Pirates later. Bonus points go to Medusa however. Due to rumors and horror stories from those who know of G-6, Medusa has become pegged as the "Dragon of G-6."
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: As to be expected from a One Piece fan wiki, much like the Straw Hat Pirates, there are numerous cases of crews of pirate protagonists who wouldn't hurt a fly (unless you manage to piss them off, that is.) Even still though, this trope gets zig zagged often, as one minute, you'll have peaceful pirates going on adventures, and the next minute, you'll come across a band of ruthless cut-throats who're out for blood. Really, it all depends on the whim of the writer in question.
    • Lampshaded in Obsidian Voyage, with Byrn outright questioning whether the Obsidian Pirates can even call themselves pirates after a particularly selfless decision led to them being celebrated as heroes by a town.
  • Time Master: John Jango de Triezieme does not merely control time. He literally becomes time.
  • Time To Unlock More True Pottential; Inexplicably enforced. The Time Skip from the canon is mirrored on the wiki, with the vast majority of characters simply stopping and going to train during this time. It has literally reached the point where later writers end up following the trend just so they can stay concurrent with everyone else. Quite strange, given that in canon only the Straw Hat Pirates did anything of the sort while the world as a whole moved on.
  • To Be a Master: Like in the original canon, there are those aiming to become the world's best something. Mostly Pirate King and world's greatest swordsman, as to be expected. But there are those like Wyatt of the Jolly Pirates who aim to be the world's first recorded master at something; in Wyatt's case, the world's greatest marksman. In order to achieve this goal, he aims to defeat the Skyline Pirates' pro sharpshooter, Primo Afro.
    • Scott.D.Rio qualifies for this to the extreme. In fact, it's one of his main drives to be the best and that his dream is to be the strongest pirate in the world which pretty much means he's going to have to fight the best of the best. Not that he has any problems with it.
    • Ignis D. Hiro is aiming to be the strongest person in the world, this means above everyone whether you are Pirate, Marine, or Revolutionary.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Jessica Diabolous Capricorn is a fairly prominent example; in her first appearance she had no weapons and apparently no powers. As of the most recent chapters of Obsidian Voyage, she is a quick thinking Guile Hero who is quite capable of defeating skilled fighters, And just about everything she uses to do so are skills she acquired onscreen. Word of God confirms that she is picking up a lot from her nakama.
  • Tranquil Fury: Threaten anyone's Nakama, and you'll be faced with this. And a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown.
    • Special mention goes to Dhahaka D. Knave of all people. Who manages to pull this during the Episode of Knave Special. During said Special, Knave remains remarkably quiet and mature, and even goes straight for the kill in the final fight, which is very unlike him.
  • Trickster Mentor: John Jango has shades of this in Legend of the Godsend. However, his refusal to give a clear direct answer to anything, as well as calmly talking to himself while Deccaden fights for his life turns him into something of an epic troll as well.
  • True Companions: This trope could be seen coming a mile away. Like in One Piece, the stories and pages on Ship of Fools Wiki are saturated in this theme.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Just about no one has this like Ruriko Fujitani does. In spite of the fact that she has one of the quickest Super Speed-based Devil Fruits on the wikia, it's her anger and her anger alone that's considered to be her greatest weapon. It's to the point where the Pop Band Pirates consider pissing her off to be a Dangerous Forbidden Technique in of itself.
    • While he may not be as infamous for it as Ruriko Fujitani is, Knave has shown this to a considerable degree. It's to the point where he nearly manages to one-shot a giant in order to protect his ship.
  • Valley Girl: Essentially how one can sum up Jean Reis of the Valkyrie Pirates. She talks the talk and even has an interest in shopping. Plus, there's the fact that she's usually clueless and absent-minded half the time. She downplays this though, because while she is ditzy and aiming to become a pop star, she actually manages to make a complete 180 during certain circumstances, such as playing music.
  • Verbal Tic: There's a good number of characters on the wiki who have this; be it the usual One Piece signature laugh, or a genuine Verbal Tic all on its own. Examples include:
    • Timber, who has modeled himself after his idol, Franky, so much that he even developed a similar verbal tic to match Franky's. While Franky himself says SUPER on an often enough basis, Timber went and attempted to one up the cyborg with his own Catchphrase, "ULTRA!"
    • Jackson Livingstone often repeats words many times in quick succession, and just as often launches into long drawn out scenery chewing shouts
    • Jean Reis, like, totally talks, like, a Valley Girl, ya know? But seriously, she, like, says like a lot more than the other words in her limited vocabulary. Like, fer sure, this is totally legit.
    • Set of the No Beard Pirates habitually throws in the word "crush" into his sentences, and variations of it, such as "crushing" and "crushed."
    • X Aphro tends to address anyone, be it man or woman, old or young, friend or foe, and so on as "dear" or "dearie." Aphro sometimes changes this up by saying "my dear" as well.
    • Drago Angelica of the Mafia Pirates, as befitting the mobster theme of her crew, has a habit of ending her sentences with "capiche."
  • The Voiceless: Juggernaut never makes a sound at any point, except various thuds from hitting things.
    "I've had less one sided conversations with a brick wall!"
  • Villainous BSoD: Shanxus suffers from this in the conclusion of Grand Voyage, which leads to his ultimate fate.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Much like Zoro and Sanji from the One Piece canon, there are some pairs of characters on this wiki who just don't get along with each other, and yet when the chips are down, will take a bullet for the other guy in a heartbeat.
    • Representing the Skyline Pirates is Drake Lockheart and Leo Osiris. This was most commonly seen early on in New Horizon!, where Leo would enjoy pranking Drake for laughs, while Drake would either snark back at Leo or return the favor with violence. Later on however, the two begin to act much more friendly with one another.
    • The Jolly Pirates have had two reoccurring cases of this thus far. The first one to be seen was Rose Glory and Mut Mizu's relationship. On Glory's end, she saw Mizu as a selfish, spoiled brat (which she was) who needed to be taught a lesson about real life. Meanwhile, Mizu had contempt for Glory's Tsundere behavior, and believed Glory to be too bitchy and demanding. In the end though, Mizu did at times try to support Glory, and Glory did continue to try and help Mizu save her people; though neither one was willing to admit it. Later on in One Dream, Spike gets into this sort of relationship with the crew's resident Jerkass, Lys. For Spike, Lys has an insufferable attitude (which, like Mizu, is justified because she does.) For Lys, she just sees Spike as Dumb Muscle; let alone a constant nuisance who seems to always be out for her. Though like Glory and Mizu, the two can show some surprising levels of kindness and loyalty towards one another.
  • What Could Have Been: Originally, the Ika Bounty Hunters' alias, the "Rebel Pirates," was to be called the "Arma Pirates" (short for the "Armageddon Pirates.") Likewise, every member was to be given the epithet of "Demon" while under disguise, and had codenames related to well known demons in demonology. Ika was "Akuma" (the devil,) Anne was "Lilith," Tora was "Behemoth" and an as of yet unmade doctor named Endo was called "Belial." After looking back and seeing the names again after so many years, the author rejected the demon theme because he felt it was too malevolent and unnecessarily evil. And so he is in the process of renaming their epithets to fit the characters more precisely. As of now, Ika is known as "Hassan the Rebel."
    • Inevitably, trying to stay in the same Canon as One Piece meant some Devil Fruit ideas never get off the ground. Monet's snow abilities and Pica's ability to merge into stone were both considered on the wiki before hand, and had to be Dummied Out by their creators.
  • Winged Humanoid: The Shandian Exiles, although normally their wings are useless for flight.
  • Word of God: Played for laughs in Grand Voyage, where the author often directly interacts with his characters in an attempt to control their actions (the author is personified as a "Voice from the Heavens"). However, his characters usually rebuff, insult, or disregard him completely, thus causing fictional bouts of depression and therefor, absence from the story itself.
  • World of Badass: Inevitable, given just how many spectacularly powerful individuals there are.
  • Worthy Opponent: There are numerous characters who consider other characters their worthiest opponents. Captain/Vice-Admiral Baruma, for example, is in no rush to actually capture Hig D. Connor as it reduces their chances of ever fighting again.
    • Thorstein Weiss in Obsidian Voyage started his entire combat tournament looking for one. His last lines suggest that he is expecting Dimitri to become one given time, and is waiting for then.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Commander Chance of the Marines. He combines this with his Busoshoku Haki and Shuuchuu Shuuchuu no Mi to devastating effect.
  • Yandere: Aimi Sora shows shades of being a Type I, previously (though briefly) a Type II towards Hig. D Connor.
  • You Already Changed the Past: In Legend Of the Godsend, John Jango de Triezieme lampshades this, by explaining that what he was hired for isn't what he's seemingly attempting, but what he will end up doing when that plan is derailed He even discusses the exact order of events with his past self. Turns into a complete Mind Screw later when it turns out the Entire story was engineered retroactively by him and Deccaden to ensure they accompished the outcome they had just seen happen. Decaden's mysterious employer was exactly the same as Jango's; himself.
  • You No Take Candle: At first glance, it seems the bigfeet race as a whole speak this way. They then subvert this trope entirely, since only Hanuman appears to talk like this. It's attributed to him having grown up in the jungles of Ape Island alone.
