One Piece: 10 Filler Episodes That Are Still Awesome
There is always something new in the field of A play, and recently the series tackled a particular mystery of what’s to come with “The Road to Laugh Tale.” Eichiro Oda, creator of A play, will include some of his notes and sketches covering some of the biggest secrets fans have been waiting for (per Screen Rant). And with any secrecy planned for the series, the anime will be sure to include it.
The manga series has over 1000 chapters and the anime has 1022 episodes. Given this volume, some of the episodes of the anime are considered filler episodes. Many fans prefer to stick with the main storyline and avoid filler episodes, but some appreciate the extra content.
ten Episode 215: Screaming Quick Service! Pirate dodgeball!
Generally, no one would expect dodgeballs and pirates to mix. In the world of One Piece, anything is possible, and a dodgeball fight between pirate crews is one of them.
There are many humorous moments in A play, and the filler episode of Luffy and crew beating Foxy and crew to dodgeball is one of those moments. All because Foxy said there should be no draws in the pirate world and demanded a three piece rematch. This, of course, didn’t work in Foxy’s favor.
9 Episode 807: A Heartbreaking Duel – Luffy vs. Sanji – Part 1
“A Heartbreaking Duel” was the perfect name for this episode. Not only does Sanji fight one of his closest friends, but the audience gets to see the family who abused Sanji.
The battle between Sanji and Luffy in this particular episode is considered one of the most tragic fights in manga and anime. Seeing the two friends in such a state has fans glued to their screens watching this filler episode. The story and fights made for great content, making the filler episode a fan favorite.
8 Episode 197: Sanji the Cook! Show her true worth at the Navy Dining Hall!
In the G-8 arc, the iconic friendship of this shonen anime finds itself in a precarious situation as Luffy and Sanji impersonate two famous cooks. Many hilarious moments take place in this ark and Sanji’s skills are displayed.
The filler episode is a great example of great storytelling and entertainment A play can get. This episode shows both Sanji’s great skills in cooking and flirting with beautiful women.
seven Episode 220: Have You Lost Your Memory? Was it taken? Who are you
Some, if not most, fans appreciate the flashbacks to the characters’ pasts and see how much the cast of characters has grown. The Ocean’s Dream Arc has a great episode to introduce the main characters and their pasts.
After hearing the music from the seahorse-shaped instrument, the crew loses their memory. Seeing the crew waking up not knowing where they are, how they got there, and who the others are around them makes for great storytelling as they try to put the pieces back together.
6 Episode 384: Brook’s Hard Fight – The Hard Way to Become a True Comrade?
Brook had lost everything and was brought back from the dead by his Devil Fruit, eventually finding the Strawhats. Also, after reading a journal about some of the Straw Hat Pirates’ adventures, he tries his best to help everyone and get on their level.
Fans love the episode because of how Brook is as a person and how hard he tries. After failing in his attempts to help others, Robin reassures him that he is just as much part of the crew as anyone else. It’s both humorous and heartwarming, making it a great filler episode.
5 Episode 135: The Infamous Pirate Hunter! Zoro the Wandering Swordsman
Known to be one of the best swordsmen in A play, Zoro didn’t win this title overnight and had plenty going on before joining the Straw Hats. In this filler episode, Zore has a flashback to one of those moments.
As part of the filler episode, Zoro’s flashback begins with his first encounter with Johnny and Yosaku. Zoro would later leave to confront the Dick Bandits and their leader. It’s a good filler episode to see Zoro in action and some of his past before the Straw Hats.
4 Episode 780: A Hungry Front – Luffy and the Marine Recruits!
As the main character, and one of the best characters in A play, Luffy is known to be a glutton. Its gluttonous need for food has been demonstrated time and time again. Filler Episode 780 shows viewers what happens when Luffy has no food.
When food is scarce and everyone is trying to find what they can for the crew, Luffy’s hunger gets the better of him, and poor Chopper finds himself in the crosshairs of the very hungry pirate who begins to chew on Chopper’s arm. Luckily, Brook was there to try to help, but not before the audience laughed at seeing Luffy act like that.
3 Episode 61: Angry Finale! Cross the red line!
There are plenty of filler episodes that not only introduce new characters, but also new experiences for the crew. In Episode 61, the Straw Hats encounter another Devil Fruit user and dragons.
The crew deals with Erik the Whirlwind and him wanting to offer the dragons a deal by sharing the Ryuukotsu rather than killing them. His plan wouldn’t work out the way he planned, but at least the audience got to enjoy the sight of Luffy shaking Erick.
2 Episode 136: Zenny of Goat Island and the Pirate Ship in the Mountains!
There’s a filler episode that many fans appreciate just for the simple but humorous addition of an island of goats. However, sad news accompanies the pretty goats.
When the crew escapes from several Navy ships, they land on the uncharted island filled with goats and meet the old man named Zenny. During the episode, Chopper discovers that Zenny has at most three days to live. Although he doesn’t die when the crew leaves, he still doesn’t have long to live, a bittersweet ending to a goat-filled episode.
1 Episode 206: See You, Marine Base! The final battle for freedom
For this filler episode, the Straw Hats prove themselves to be worthy opponents of the Marines and prove just how cunning they can be. And it’s all shown by the pirates escaping from the G-8.
The great thing about this filler episode is how Jonathan explains why he’s not upset about the breakout and admits the Pirates won this game. He explains that meeting the Straw Hats was a bonding experience for the Marines. After the antics the crew had to fire to stay undercover and fight their way, the crew deserved the win.
