Brag Men is a famous book which contains many stories from the Grand Line. Due to the nature of these stories, many people mock them, and so the book was named to discredit their authors as "liars" (うそつき達 usotsuki-tachi?).[2] The book is labeled as "fiction romance".[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Creation of the Book[edit | edit source]

The only portion of Brag Men that has appeared in the series was written by the explorer Louis Arnote (ルイ・アーノート Rui Ānōto?, VIZ Media: Louis Arnot). It describes the island of Little Garden and reveals the origin of its name.[1] Due to Louis Arnote mentioning giants inhabiting the island, the book must have originally been published less than 100 years ago, as that is when Dorry and Brogy began living on Little Garden.

Ohara[edit | edit source]

Brag Men can be seen among the books saved from the Buster Call on Ohara.

Brag Men was one of the many books kept in the Tree of Knowledge located on the island of Ohara in the West Blue. Twenty-two years ago, it was among the books saved by the archaeologists of Ohara from the destruction caused by a Buster Call on the island.[3] It is suggested that, due to the efforts of these scholars, the book survived to be mass-produced at a later date.[2]

The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.

Spade Pirates[edit | edit source]

In One Piece episode A, while stranded on a desert island, Portgas D. Ace and Masked Deuce, the founding members of the Spade Pirates, bonded while talking about Brag Men as well as other tales.

Concludes non-canon section.

Straw Hat Pirates[edit | edit source]

Nami owns a copy of Brag Men. After the Straw Hat Pirates landed on Little Garden, she recalled previously having read about the island from the book. She then searched for her copy in her bedroom, and after finding it, rushed out to warn the crew about the island.[1] The Straw Hats' adventures are said to be a looking glass into these so-called "lies", allowing readers to decide for themselves whether the stories within Brag Men are true or not.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Louis Arnote's voice actor is Tomohisa Asō in Japanese and Joel McDonald in the Funimation English dub.
  • Louis Arnote's birthday is December 20th and he was born in the Grand Line.[4]
