    I don't know if it was the same for you guys but the way Luffy became stronger was unexpected. You just thought he was going there to try to save robin just like he always manages to win his other fights. but when he came out and did that gear thing, it really was unexpected. Like in other mangas/anime you can always tell when characters are about to get stronger. They give you a heads up by showing you the character going through training or some other thing. but Luffy it was different.

    I already know that Usopp is a smart dude so he will come up with a lot of gadgets and strategies to use them accordingly. Id Usopp,Nami and Chopper are on the same level, they are not really strong and they are not really weak.

    Luffy getting strong is both a given and rather boring, because in the end we know he's going to be stronger than everyone else.

    Usopp, however, has normally been cast as a weak character, with only hints of real strength and mostly unused smarts. To finally see him go all out from the beginning and see him use what looks like a weapon comparable with everyone else is going to be a real treat. He's the only character we've never seen get "serious"
    We did see him fight seriously when he faced luffy. I really think it'd be dissapointing if ussop wasn't fighting on at least Nami's level right now, he has the capabilities, he just need to fight seriously.
    Except now, he's got what appears a much more powerful weapon, a weapon that may put him on a pretty high level. Maybe not up to Sanji or Zoro, but certainly really close.

    The problem is, he may just as easily become the gag fight again, which is what I really fear.

    Never thought i'd say this, but usopp is tied for favourite character alongside zoro now I really hope he doesnt go back to the gag fight, especially not against cp9 when he has the sogeking personna.

    Maybe he'll return to being normal usopp after this arc, but when things get a bit hectic and tough, he'll bring out the sogeking personna so it'll be like a super hero thing, which obviously everyone will understand, except chopper and luffy.
    That's what I thought.. he can be his goofy self as ussop but he becomes sogeking when he wants to show his brave side

    Yeah I'd like it like that, that would work great.

    if it wasnt for him.. nami wouldnt be where she is at now heck she wouldnt even be alive
    But if it wasn't for other people, Lysopp would be dead too. Just like everybody else in the crew.

    Except Sanji.
    If Gin had't gone soft on him, he'd be dead before entering the strawhats.


    Maybe not up to Sanji or Zoro
    Maybe??



    For Lysopp. I wouldn't call it powers (the word bugs me). His fighting Style is only based on Tools.

    Visiting Skypia was really good for him. With his Dials he can do amazing things. That gives him the ability to fight every opponent, whatever his weak point may be (blades, fire etc).

    Isn't that a power?

    Zoros fighting is based on swords, Namis based on magic staff, and Sanjis based on his shoes. Neither of them has powers.

    I didn't say Nami has powers.

    I just said with Lysopp the word bugs me.
    In One Piece powers is used in terms of strenght or DF ability (e.g. you have power if you can defeat a sea-king)

    Lysopp (just like Nami) doesn't have any of that.
    You could say, they are human and not monsters.

    In a fight they use their brains and tools.
    Yes there is also brain-power, and they both have it.

    But in One Piece if you talk of powers, you think of strenght or DF abilitys, not the brains.


    But all that doesn't mean he isn't a strong fighter. He just doesn't need powers, because of his tools.


    You don't have to agree though.

He'll be like batman or something with a whole bunch of gadgets and one of those gadgets will be the impulse dial becaue when you think about it is a really powerful weapon. He also have that cape thing where he can glide but can't land. he also has a bigger sling shot.
    i disagree
    in my opinion, Luffy is the smartest.
    Ussop just has a hell lot of creativity and some knowledge but mostly i believe its a trial and error method that he uses to make his weapons.

    err... bro what r u on about? luffy the smartest?
    just what do u base that on? sure there were times where he showed that he WASN'T DUMB, but 2 go as far as 2 say that he is in fact the smartest of them all???
    r we talking about one piece here? or a different luffy from a different manga?

    It looks like smarts, but it's really Luffy's primal understanding of situtations and people, then taking the most straightforward action to solve whatever problems he encounters(even if they're completly insane).

    He's not so much intelligent as he is capable of understanding people, situtations, and places, no matter what.
