Does Ussop Need A Serious Revamp?

If you’ve been following One Piece for a long time, you might have noticed some of the Straw Hats, especially Usopp, lagging behind in terms of usefulness and strength. This made me wonder, “Does Ussop Need A Serious Revamp?”

Before diving into Usopp’s situation, let’s briefly discuss some other Straw Hat members and their roles. As of Episode 1106, Nami, Robin, and Brook seem to be seriously lacking in fighting ability.

Nami, the navigator, doesn’t have much to offer beyond her navigational skills. In case of emergencies, her ability to fight is severely lacking. To be more useful to the crew, she should at least reach the pre-training level of Sanji. The power levels of their enemies are increasing with each arc, and she can’t stay at her current level. Nami needs either a new piece of equipment to enhance her abilities or another companion like Zeus to provide her with a significant power-up.

Robin, as an archaeologist and fighter, has a slight edge over Nami. Unlike Nami, she had a proper 1v1 fight and won. However, she should aim to reach the post-training level of Zoro, enabling her to face admirals and members of Blackbeard’s crew. This is likely to happen in the near future, but even now, she is much more useful than Usopp.

Brook hasn’t had a significant fight in a long time. Even in the Wano Arc, he played a minimal role, supporting Robin rather than shining as a lead character. Brook seems to be getting less useful over time, and in recent episodes, Zoro has taken the spotlight. In my opinion, Brook should have been the one to defeat Lucci and Kaku. What do you think?

Now, let’s talk about the most underwhelming member of the Straw Hat crew: Usopp. From the beginning, Usopp lacked courage. While every other Straw Hat member has gone through character development and conquered their weaknesses, Oda has made Usopp a joke. He still lacks the courage and valor needed at this point in the series. By now, Usopp should have developed his own charisma and dominance.

Instead, Usopp is nowhere near the level I imagined him to be. He is becoming more and more useless as the episodes progress. He had a pivotal role during the Dressrosa Arc, but that was a brief moment. In the Wano Arc, he was utterly useless, crying all the time. Even Nami was far more useful than Usopp throughout the Wano Arc. Chopper, being a doctor, contributed twice as much as Nami and Usopp combined.

For example, during Wano, Chopper played many roles, but the most important was when he fought the Queen to protect their forces and found the antidote to the Queen’s virus, changing the course of the war. In the Egghead Arc, he continues to contribute by being cute and playful.

All of this makes me think that Usopp seriously needs a revamp, whether it be his character, role, or fighting ability. From top to bottom, he needs an overhaul.

Would you agree with me? Let me know what you think about these points. I would love to read your thoughts in the comments section.
