One Piece Wiki

The Usopp Pirates was a group of children who pretended to be pirates in Syrup Village. It was formerly led by Usopp until he chose to join the Straw Hat Pirates.[1]

Jolly Roger

The group's Jolly Roger was like any other in the world of One Piece, except that instead of a proper jaw with teeth, the skull has an open mouth that is elongated vertically.

The Usopp Pirates were formed five years before the start of the story. They joined Usopp in telling lies to the people of their hometown, Syrup Village, during that time.[1]

They later assist Kaya in her escape when Captain Kuro planned to kill her. They did this mainly by running and hiding from Jango, whom Kuro sent to make Kaya leave everything to him in her will. The pirates had a tearful disbandment when Usopp decided to leave and become a real pirate. The trio announced their goals to their life, and Usopp suggested that they don't let the fire of their ambitions burn out. The children decided to continue Usopp's lies of "Pirates are coming" to their town.[2]

  • The 4Kids version of the three younger crew members' names is a reference to the vegetable theme apparent in the crew members' original names and appearances (carrot, onion, and pepper).
  • Though they have a proper flag, the three younger crew members are a group that never set sail and only played pirates, so they are not enemies of the World Government.
    • However, according to Saint Jalmack, just raising a black flag would automatically make one a criminal.
