Usopp (ウソップ, Usoppu), aka King of Snipers Usopp (狙撃の王ウソップ, Sogeki no Ō Usoppu) was born in Syrup Village. He is the sniper of the Straw Hat Pirates and former Captain of the Usopp Pirates. When Usopp was first introduced, he was often (comically) labeled as the "Liar" of the Straw Hat Pirates, due to the "Uso" (うそ) in his name meaning "lie" or "falsehood". He was first mentioned by Yasopp. He is the fourth member of the crew, the third to join, and, including Nami, also the third to rejoin, doing so at the end of the Post-Enies Lobby Arc. He is known with a bounty of 30,000,000 berries on his head by his alias and alter-ego "Sogeking" (そげキング, Sogekingu).
Since first introduced, Usopp has been cowardly, known to constantly lie and enjoys telling tall tales to both friends and strangers alike. He is generally seen as the comic relief of the Straw Hats as well as the weakest member of the crew. Despite his cowardly disposition, he is unselfish, compassionate, and strives to become a great pirate as well as better himself. He also works hard to keep the crew safe and help his fellow crew members accomplish their own dreams as well as his own. Usopp is one of the more sentimental Straw Hat Pirates, and cries or loses his temper in moments of emotional stress. At the start of the series, Usopp was an easily frightened, anxious, insecure, compulsive liar. Unlike Nami (whose cowardice is linked to just wanting to stay alive), Usopp's cowardice was the result of his fear and insecurity, especially when faced with uncertainty. Usopp is able to put aside his fear during more desperate times: despite being afraid, he faces those fears for the sake of his friends and people he barely knows.
Animas Extravaganza Edit
Usopp and the Straw Hats were sailing through the ocean, when they were suddenly attacked by the marines. They captured Robin, Franky, and Brook, leaving Luffy, Usopp, Chopper, Zoro, Nami, and Sanji remaining. A big wave came and hit the group of six. Luffy, Usopp and Chopper find themselves in a snow-covered town known as South Park. After saving Kenny's life with Chopper's medical skills, Cartman decides to let the trio stay at his house temporarily. During their stay in South Park, the group of 3, along with Cartman and his friends, just simply relaxed in Cartman's room, watching YouTube or playing games, similar to what Alex, Mordecai, and Rigby do at home. Eventually, they meet Willy, who takes the group of 3 head to Milford, where they reunite with Nami, Zoro, and Sanji. They have been spending the holidays with the Connellys before parting ways.
Road to Omniverse Edit
Usopp had his memory erased by Eon and was sent to an alternate timeline where he, along with the rest of the crew, had never joined Luffy's crew, and instead joined the marines. Luffy and his group visit said timeline and recover his memory by showing him a YouTube video they watched together when under the care of Eric Cartman. After recovering the other crew-members' memories, they all escape while battling with Tord. Upon escaping, Usopp helps the gang take down Eon before parting ways.
Usopp is a slim tan-skinned teenager with medium-length black woolly hair, prominent lips and a long nose, which is apparently an allusion to Pinocchio (a wooden boy from a story of the same name who possessed a nose that would stretch after he lied). Usopp inherited his famous nose from his mother, while the rest of his face closely resembles his father's.
Like the rest of the males of the crew he wore one outfit for the majority of the series before wearing different clothing by the end of the Paradise. Usopp usually wore an olive green plaid bandanna, a blue and white striped armband on his left arm, along with special sniper goggles (he also has a pair of clear rectangular goggles that he sometimes wears in situations where he does not have his sniper goggles, like when he first met the Straw Hat Pirates or when his sniper goggles were stolen by Mr. 2), brown overalls with a white sash and no shirt underneath, and olive green boots. He also carries with him a yellow satchel, which he stores all his tools and gadgets in.
After the two year timeskip, Usopp has become much more muscular than before and has grown his hair out. He has become "manlier" and is slightly taller than before.
Usopp now has a new pair of goggles around his neck (his sniper goggles weren't shown) and has some headphones or ear protectors on. He also now has a little goatee along with a new white suncap he wears on his head. He also has a new pair of rolled-up yellow pants with red suspenders, and a new pair of olive-green boots.
His trademark yellow satchel has been replaced with a red one, but he still has his blue and white striped wrist band on his left arm.
Road to Omniverse Edit
In Road to the Omniverse, Usopp wears an outfit that combines 3 of his main outfits together: his Pre-Timeskip outfit, his Sabaody Archipelago outfit, and his Post-Timeskip outfit. On his head, he wears his orange sniper goggles with red lenses, which rest on a teal hat with yellow flowers, which is the same shape as the Post-Timeskip hat, and the same color scheme as his shorts from Sabaody Archipelago. He keeps the brown overalls, white sash, and blue and white striped armband from his Pre-Timeskip outfit, but underneath the overalls, he wears a yellow t-shirt in the same design as the yellow pants he wore after the timeskip. His red statchel is worn the same way Diego wears his Rescue Pack. On his feet, he wears a bronze pair of boots with silver soles and straps.
