One Piece Red: Grand Characters (ワンピース レッド グランド キャラクターズ Wan Pīsu Reddo Gurando Kyarakutāzu?) is the first One Piece databook. It was released on January 5, 2002 and covers material from Volume 1 to Volume 21, comprising all of the East Blue Saga and most of the Arabasta Saga.

As its subtitle suggests, One Piece Red is concerned almost solely with character data. Roughly half its content consists of in-depth profiles on each of the first six Straw Hat Pirates, with the rest mostly consisting of shorter write-ups on all the other pirate crews (and Marines) encountered thus far.[1] These are interspersed with several bonus stories, games, and the like.

The contents proper are preceded by the quasi-chapter One Piece Color, featuring several full-color illustrations:
