Kodama is an anime-only character that appeared in the Post-Alabasta Arc. She lives on Fireworks Island with her grandfather, Odama, whom she helps as best she can.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Kodama has black, short hair parted in the middle over a red, knotted headband. She has purplish-red kabuki makeup under her eyes. She also wears a blue robe with yellow spiked designs (possibly represents fireworks) at the edge of the sleeves, as well as near the bottom of the robe. Under her dress, she wears an orange shirt. She also has an obi tied around her waist. She wears brownish-white shorts and light-brown flip-flops.[1]

PersonalityEdit

She is an enthusiastic child that is not willing to give up on a dream, as she wanted to create the firework "Ball 205", despite knowing the risk of creating it. She would go against her grandfather's wishes in setting off the firework, and would trust a stranger like Usopp in distracting him. When her grandfather managed to convince the delivery team that setting off the firework was dangerous, Kodama expressed her sadness and ran off crying.

She is very confident in her ability to create fireworks, deeming herself as great as her own grandfather. When this opinion is expressed aloud, however, her grandfather hits her, and she begins crying when he orders her to work afterwards. Kodama believes that no firework is truly finished until it blooms in the night sky; for that reason, none of the fireworks in her house are "finished."[1]

Abilities and PowersEdit

She is a great fireworks expert and works with her grandfather in making them for the Fireworks Festival. She recreated a dangerous firework called the Ball 205, which her parents were working on until they died. By holding and observing Usopp's three-gauge shell up close, she determined it was pasted together a little loosely, though confirmed that it would still launch okay. Kodama is also quick enough to kick Usopp off his feet, resulting in the latter getting a bloody nose.[1]

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

Kodama's Family

Kodama and her family, working.

Kodama works as an apprentice to her grandfather, Odama, a maker of fireworks. Her parents wanted to create a dangerous firework named Ball 205, to continue a tradition long lost in their family. However, because of a malfunction of the firework, her parents died. Kodama visits their grave regularly, and despite their fate, she wanted to help realize their dream and finish the Ball 205.

Post-Alabasta ArcEdit

During the Firework Festival, a year after her parents' death, Kodama continues working for her grandfather, and was secretly planning to launch the Ball 205 on the festival. She had commissioned a delivery team to help carry it out when her grandfather wasn't looking.

On the day of the festival, Kodama met Usopp of the Straw Hat Pirates, who had come to her house for gunpowder. Kodama discovered the firework in his possession and took it to examine its craft. She thought Usopp was here to become an apprentice, but as Usopp was helping her load supplies, she was disappointed to hear this wasn't the case. Kodama confided Usopp in her secret plan to launch the Ball 205, and also told him of the fate regarding her parents. Usopp expressed concern for Kodama and wished to tell her grandfather, but Kodama kicks him off his feet, further expressing her desire to set the firework off. After wiping Usopp's bloody nose, she requests him to help distract her grandfather.[1]

When Odama convinces the delivery team not to help Kodama set off the firework, Kodama becomes angered at them, crying as she runs away to the graveyard. She sits before her parents' grave, questioning if they want her to set off the Ball 205, otherwise they won't let the rain stop. Usopp metaphorically speaks for her parents, telling Kodama that she was their dream, and they want her to continue their tradition. After the rain clears away, Kodama thanks Usopp (who calls himself an angel from Heaven) before running home. On the night of the festival, Kodama excitedly helps her grandfather set off fireworks. Kodama is awestruck when the Ball 205 is set off into the sky by Odama. Kodama internally wishes to create a firework just like that, and loudly expresses her thanks to her mother and father.
