In Straw Hat Pirates, Usopp is the sniper and the third member to join the crew. His parents are Yasopp of Red-Hair Pirates and Banchina. Luffy asked Usopp to join his crew when he met him at Syrup Village in Gecko Island. Usopp has curly hair and a long nose. He is a slim-frame teenager with tan skin. He grew obese during the Straw Hat Separation arc.
Usopp’s Life Before Joining Straw Hat Pirates
After Yasopp left and joined Red-Hair Pirates, Usopp and his mother were alone in the village. Banchina gradually became sick. Usopp started to tell lies to his mother saying that pirates were coming to keep up her hopes. Every day he would tell her that his father was coming back in hopes of encouraging her spirits.
His mother died but his lies never stopped. He continued to lie because he was all alone after having lost both parents. Just like he was cheering his mother, he used lies to cheer Kaya, a young girl of a noble family. Kaya was sick and had to stay in her room all day long. Usopp started to hang out with her and tell her stories about his adventures. He also had his crew of three kids, Ninjin, Tamanegi, and Piiman.
When Luffy, Zoro, and Nami came to Syrup Island in search of a ship they met Usopp. They helped Usopp to save Kaya from Kuro, a pirate posed as Kaya’s butler. After saving Kaya she gifted the Straw Hat Pirates their first Pirate Ship “Going Merry”. Usopp joined the crew to become a strong and fearless pirate and to go on adventures.
With Straw hat Pirates
In One Piece, Usopp may not have been the bravest person in the crew of monsters, Luffy, Sanji, and Zoro. But, he is a kind-hearted person who wouldn’t tolerate anyone making fun of his friends. In Arabasta Arc, Miss Merry Christmas tells Usopp and Chopper that Luffy has died. Usopp tells her that it is a lie because Luffy will become the pirate king. Miss Merry Christmas laughs at that and Usopp tells Chopper that a real man needs to fight hard especially when his friend’s dreams are laughed at.
Usopp and Chopper defeat Miss Merry Christmas and Mr. 4.
He, despite all his good memories and great friendship with the crew, decided to leave the crew in the Water 7 Arc of the One piece. The crew had to choose a new ship “Sunny Go” because Going Merry was beyond repair. Usopp believed that by leaving Going Merry they have forsaken the dignity of their first pirate ship.
He declared he was leaving the crew but challenged Luffy to a duel. The duel was the first he had ever fought so hard. No worries because he rejoined the crew at the end of Enies Lobby Arc having finally accepted that Going Merry was not capable of sailing any longer.
Usopp’s personal Jolly Roger before timeskip had his long nose, bandanna, a star, and his slingshot as one of the cross-bone. After timeskip, the Jolly Roger has his skull face left with his new hat, headphone, hair tied back. His Kuro Kabuto is in the background. He has photo-bombed both Luffy and Zoro on their first wanted poster.
