A running gag in One Piece is that Usopp's lies eventually turn out to be true (with some minor modifications such as his age). For instance, he discovered giant goldfish, pirates came (though they don't find out), and the existence of an island of dwarves. I fully expect every significant lie he says from the beginning of the story to come true in some (likely absurd) way at some point in the story.

I want to know the lies which are yet to come true. Currently, I am only aware that he lied about a medicine that can cure any disease. His claims to be captain could potentially count, but he has been acknowledged by the title "Captain Usopp".

What other lies are left that have not yet come true?

    Potential other lies: Ussop is related to Norland, the existance of sniper island, and he can wield a 5Ton Hammer.

I'm using the youtube link OP provided in one of the comments to answer this question.

Basically the lies that haven't come true according to this video are:

  • (Conqueror's) Haki.
  • Having 8000 followers.
  • Medicine that cures all diseases
  • Brave warrior of the sea
  • King usopp from hell
  • Beating ten giant shadows
  • Assisting in bringing down a bombman
  • Descendant of Noland
  • Being born on sniper island.

Personally I believe three of them have been verified in recent chapters though.

- Haki could be considered as truth as he indeed unlocked (Observation) Haki and he will most likely not discover Conqueror's Haki.
- Law's DF could be considered the medicine that cures all diseases as he could cure fatal diseases as lead poisoning and could even cure the terminal illness called death...
- Assisting in bringing down a bombman is probably referring to the fact that he sniped Sugar the second time bringing down the giant toys that were aiding.

For completeness, here are the lies that have been confirmed according to the same video:

  • Pirates came to Syrup village (Black Cat Pirates)
  • Saved a whale from North Blue (Laboon)
  • Fought a huge goldfish with poop as large as islands (The goldfish at Little Garden killed by Brogy and Dorry. The same goldfish had pooped the island called nanimonai)
  • "Honestly, I know I'm a man amoung men, but you can't fall in love with me, girl. Not my fault if you get burned." (Basically what Sanji told the Okama)
  • A big condor, flying through the skies (The big condors Chopper met during the time-skip. Usopp rode one during the reunion)
  • Abominable snowman (Rock and Scotch, the Yeti Cool brothers)
  • A beautiful female swordmaster that brought a lot of meat (Rebecca buying Luffy three bentos at the Colosseum)
  • A huge mole inside the mansion (Miss Merry Christmas from Barocque Works)
  • During Syrup village arc, they pretend to chase "Cerberus", while chasing a regular dog (Usopp met a real Cerberus at Thriller Bark)
  • They also pretend to capture a dragon (The Straw Hat Pirates actually capture (eat) a dragon on Punk Hazard)
  • Country of dwarves (Tontatta country)
  • Legendary hero Usoland (God Usopp)

    Doesn't "God Usopp" command ~8000 followers to destroy the factory behind him? (perhaps if you include the Tontattas in the count as well) Feb 15, 2015 at 6:06

    @user2813274 Well they all turned on him after he got his 500 mio bounty though. So during that one chapter it could be considered true, but I left it out cos I believr thr Straw Hat divisions are about to be formed after this arc ends and then he will truly have many loyal followers.

  • This isn't relevant anymore but Ussop makes a "snow queen" (beautiful snow woman) all they way back in Whiskey Peak which comes true in Punk Hazard.

  • Usopp will soon command 8,000 followers considering that after Dreadrossa Arc they got 5,000+ new allies under their wing and as the story continues more will be added.

None, you got that all right.
There's korean website which I just checked for you, and the person who studies one piece whole time, said that those are the ones which are yet to come.


  • Ussop always says he comes from Sniper Island, that might just be genuine lie, or maybe, he is from Sniper Island?

    There is a point - whatever the language the site is from, it shows that there is a source for what you are claiming. And it's still possible to track back the image to the Japanese/English release.

I remember one during the Thriller Bark arc. Where he tries to wake Luffy, Zoro and Sanji up by yelling that there is a beautiful lady swordsman with a ton of meat.

I think that one would be good to see if it comes true.

  • Would that really be a significant lie? it would be like Luffy getting Nami to wake up by yelling to her that there's a pile of treasure infront of her and people are taking it

  • @Memor-X So how would you define a significant lie from not? The question does not specifically say how a lie can be significant.

  • The Question gives examples however i only just seen as far as Robin join the crew after Crocodile's defeat so i am unsure of what lies Ussop has said but ones which involve a large group of people ie. "Pirates are coming" affects the island he lived on or "I am the Captain" affects the entire Straw Hat Crew.

    I'm not sure about this one - after all, in Dressrosa, Rebecca feeds Luffy... (and I'm anticipating a feast in a few more episodes) Feb 3, 2015 at 11:16

    The bento rebecca bought Luffy most likely contained meat. Luffy wouldn't be scuffing down free samples of vegetables. Feb 14, 2015 at 23:51

There is one more lie. Ussop said "First, for the giant cat, I used a cattail plant" back in episode 9 )22:12. This kinda happened later on in ep 765, where he stands beside Robin who uses a cattail plant to calm Nekomamushi.


This lie has turned to truth - "Assisting in bringing down a bombman." On little guarden when Zoro, Nami and Vivi was stuck in the candle he fought against Mr.5 and Miss Valentine (Mr.5 is a bombman, he said so him self on whisky peak) and won by freeing Zoro so he could beat Mr.5.
