Legacy of Usopp Chapter 1

This chapter was written by Flaming-Fist-Paul. I edited for him!

MAJOR WARNING! Character death ahead!


Luffy was in his spot at the front of the Thousand Sunny. He had a huge smile on his face. They were coming up to the last island on the Grand Line, Raftel. there One Piece was supposedly at. Luffy looked up to see one hell of a storm coming. Then came Nami’s voice ordering everyone around. They made it through in an hour or so. They landed onto Raftel afterwords.

“Where’s One Piece?” Luffy asked only to get knocked on the head by Zoro.

“Idiot,” Zoro said, “do you honestly think the pirate king would have hid it in plain view? We have to ether dig it up or find a cave or something.”

Luffy started looking at the ground.

“Now what are you looking for?” Zoro asked.

“An X,” Luffy answered.

This time Sanji kicked him.

“Like there would be a giant X on the ground,” he said.

“Hey guys!” Chopper yelled from a far, “I found a cave!”

Luffy raced over. His eyes sparked as he tried to enter it. Nami pulled him back and cleared her throat. She hold up a flash light and turned it on. She went in first.

“Try not to get lost Moss Head,” Sanji said to Zoro, “or we’ll never find you.”

Zoro’s eye twitched.

“I don’t get lost,” he stated.

“If he wants to believe that then go right a head,” Usopp said under his berth.

They all headed inside. They walked for what seem like hours before Robin stopped. She noticed some ind of picture on the wall.

“Nami do you mind shining that light on to this wall?” Robin asked.

“Yeah sure,” Nami said.

She moved the flash light to the wall. There was four images of strange looking humans pointing in different locations. There was, also, a skull and cross bones over a bunch of fruit images. There was four other fruits below the strange humans. Robin took a closer look.

“Hey I thought we were suppose to be finding One Piece,” said Luffy.

He was kicked by Sanji for being rude to his goddesses. Luffy dropped to the ground and looked at the wall. He blinked and took a closer look at the picture of a bunch of fruit.

“Hey the Gum Gum fruit is there!” he shouted.

Chopper came over to look.

“So is the one I ate,” he said.

Robin looked.

“So is the one I ate too,” she said.

She looked at the skull and cross bones.

“I see,” Robin said, “if a devil fruit user were to eat one of these four then they will die.”

Chopper swallowed. Zoro looked at the other picture.

“What exactly does these four fruits do?” he asked.

Robin looked over. One of the humans was a dark purple color like it’s fruit. It had strange looking wings and two shadows, which it was controlling. It was also pointing right.

“I think this one is a shadow fruit,” Robin said.

The one next to it was white like it’s fruit. It had angel like wings and it was shining some kind of light. Said light was burning two little imps. It was pointing up.

“This one is light,” said Robin.

The one next to that one had some kind of aura around and three circles of the same color as the human, magenta. It was pointing down. The fruit was the same color as well.

“This one is some kind of magic,” Robin said, “arcane I think.”

The last one was lavender like it’s fruit. It had some kind of sound lines coming from an eye on the forehead. Things were floating around it. It was, also, pointing to the left.

“And this one is psychic,” said Robin.

“I think the way they’re pointing is where they are in this place,” said Usopp.

Nami looked to the left of them. There was a cave in tunnel and pieces of a ladder in the rocks.

“Well it looks like the only way we can go is where the shadow one is pointing,” said Nami “the right.”

She lead the way for a while before stopping. She had a huge grin and sparkles in her eyes. Everyone else looked. The room was filled with gold, gems, and pearls. Everyone cheered and started running around, looking at it all Luffy looked up and blinked. At the top of a cliff was a marble table and on it was a round dark purple fruit.

“Hey!” Luffy shouted, “the shadow fruit!”

Everyone looked up to see it. Luffy made his way up and took the fruit. They soon started moving One Piece onto the ship with a little help from Franky. Brook made the job a bit lively with his jokes. Once everyone and everything was all on board they made an agreement. They were to keep a little of the treasure and re-hide the rest. Luffy kept the shadow fruit though. He looked at it.

Let’s see, he thought, Robin, Chopper, Brook, and I can’t eat it. So that would leave Zoro, Sanji, Franky, Nami, and Usopp.

Luffy scratched his head.

Zoro, Sanji, and Franky are strong already, he thought, so that would leave Nami and Usopp.

Luffy’s eyes sparkled as he pictured them in the shadow form like it was shown on the wall.

“They would look so awesome,” he said in aw.

He then shivered when he thought of away Nami could use it as punishment to him. Luffy then noticed a ship in the distance.

“Who’s that?” he wondered.

“Marine ship on the right!” Zoro yelled.

“There’s another one on the left!” Brook shouted.

“Zoro!” Luffy shouted, “what about the one in front of us?!”

Zoro looked.

“It’s a pirate ship!” he shouted, “by the looks of it, it’s Black Beard’s!”


A marine looked at the ships with a pair of binoculars.

“Sir,” he said, “our fleet and Black Beard are now approaching the Straw Hats.”

“Good,” said the captain, “have our fleet test out the new seastone bullets on them.”

“Yes sir,” said the marine.


Nami got up to the wheel, only to see even more Marine ships coming to them. She, then, looked around them. They were surrounded. She swallowed. There was laughter. They looked toward the pirate ship. Black Beard smiled and had a pistol pointing at Luffy.

“Thanks for making it easy for me to get One Piece,” he said.

He fired. The bullets went past Luffy’s cheek. Luffy blinked and touched his cheek when he felt something wet start to run down it. Blood! Some how the bullet cut into Luffy.

“Fire!” a marine shouted.

Canons were shoot. A few missed, but others hit the ship. Nami tried to find a way out of the block aid. Guns started firing. Everyone tried their best to protect everyone else and the ship. A canon ball was fired and it landed next to Usopp. It exploded. The fire from it caught Usopp on the right side of his face. He screamed out and covered the nasty burn. Chopper looked over at him.

“Usopp!” he shouted.

He tried to make his way to him only to get stopped by gun shots. Franky knocked a canon ball out to sea, but he failed to see the one coming up behind him. It went right through him.

“Franky!” Luffy yelled.

Nami, then, spotted away out. She turned the ship. Guns fired and she fell to the ground, lifeless.

“Nami!” Luffy yelled.

Sanji was next to go, then Robin, then Zoro, then Chopper, and finally Brook. Luffy stood there.

They’re gone, he thought, they’re all gone…

Marines on one ship screamed as giant plants started to devour them. Luffy looked behind him. Though he was in a great deal of pain and half of his face was burnt, Usopp was still standing strong. This brought hope to Luffy. A bullet got Luffy in the leg. Luffy fell. He held his leg and herd something roll. He looked. It was the devil fruit! Usopp screamed when he got shot in the side. He fell as well. Luffy grabbed the fruit and crawled to Usopp.

“Usopp here,” said Luffy trying to give it to him, “eat it.”

Usopp looked at him before another gun fired. Luffy’s grip on the fruit lessen as the life within him left. Usopp was horrified. Tears fell down his cheeks. He looked at the shadow fruit. He reached for it.


The marine looked at the Thousand Sunny again from a far.

“Sir,” he said, “it looks like the Straw Hats have been eliminated.”

The captain turned his back from the Marine and the Thousand Sunny.

“Good,” he started, “Now we need to-”

A terrifying screech filled the air. The captain looked back at the Thousand Sunny. The Marine looked up at what look like some kind of dark purple death angel.

“What the hell is that thing?!” the Marine asked.

Strange small purple glowing balls surrounded the angel. The angel raised it’s hands and then did the hand command for fire. The balls hit the nearest ships. They exploded. The angel let out a victory roar. The captain swallowed. Then a shadow like smoke covered the Thousand Sunny. It was spreading.

“Get us out of here now!” shouted the captain.

A Marine turned the ship around. Another Marine looked at the cloud. Shadow wolves emerged from it and attacked one of the remaining ships. The Marine swallowed and tried not to think about it.


The angel looked around. All the ships were destroyed and bodies were floating in the water satisfied the angel landed next to the wheel. It looked at everyone and whimpered. It looked at it’s claw like hands. It did some kind of hand motion to try and turn back. Nothing. It did the motion several more times, getting the same results. The angel got so frustrated that it started scratching at it’s skin.

After a bit the form faded away to revile Usopp. Usopp groaned in pain as blood dripped from the new cuts that was all over his body. The one done to his neck was the worse. He panted and took the wheel.

Need to get out of here, he thought steering the ship away.


“The hell was that thing captain?” asked a Marine.

“I don’t know,” the captain answered.

“It whipped out an entire fleet without braking a sweat,” commented another Marine.

Another came up to the captain and handed him something. It was a photo of the death angel.

“Ah good work Marine!” the captain complemented before heading to contact HQ.

“Marine Head Quarters,” said a Marine from the other end.

“This is Captain Tarin from branch 32,” said Tarin, “I’m sending in a photo to be made into a wanted poster.”

The Marine looked at the photo.

“What is this thing?” the Marine asked.

“That thing killed and destroyed an entire fleet,” said Tarin, “now listen up. Here is what I want on the poster. Title – Shadow Angel, name – unknown, is the last member of the Straw Hat crew, and warning – is a devil fruit user who’s powers are still unknown.”

“Okay got it,” said the Marine, “but what do you mean by ‘last member of the Straw Hat crew’?”

“The others have been killed,” informed Tarin, “they had found and still have One Piece.”

The Marine’s eyes widen.

“I will inform the higher ups about this,” he said, “what should the starting bounty be?”

“Um…” said Captain Tarin, “Let’s see, I say about 500,000,000 Berries considering what it’s a member of and what it has done.”

“Alright,” said the Marine, “I have all of that written down.”

Tarin nodded and hanged up.


The sound of the Thousand Sunny crashing into land awoke Usopp. He had fallen asleep at the wheel. He blinked. There was a light on him. He looked up.

Lighthouse? He thought.

Who ever was up there had a spot light on him. Usopp jumped when a rock started scraping on the metal part of the ship. Lights turned on in the nearest buildings. People started coming out to investigate. Usopp could hear their voices talking and yelling before he closed his eyes. Then there was the distance sound of hooves. Usopp opened his eyes.

“Make room for Vice Admiral Coby!” someone yelled.

Coby…Marine… Usopp thought, Marine killed…not friendly!

Usopp’s eyes slitted and turn into a glowing purple for but a second.

“Get a ladder or walk board!” ordered Coby.

He looked back at the ship when some of the people started looking for what Coby wanted.

“Looks like it’s been in one hell of a fight,” he commented.

There was some giant holes in it’s side. There was one where you could see right through to the other side. One mass looked like it was leaning.

“Coby the flag,” said Helmeppo who came with him.

Coby looked up at the flag and his heart sank. The flag had the skull and cross bones with the straw hat of Luffy’s crew. It was all tattered like the sails. A board walk was found and slid into place. Coby and Helmeppo was the only ones to come up. Coby nearly gagged at the smell of rotting flesh. Coby looked. There, in what would be the shade if the sun was out, was the corpses of the Straw Hat crew. Coby wanted to cry, but couldn’t with so many people around.

Coby then noticed they were stacked up. He looked at the ground. There were lots of blood trails. Helmeppo felt eyes on him. He looked over at Usopp. Helmeppo took one of his blades and held it up. Usopp looked at it. Helmeppo moved from left to right. Usopp’s eyes followed it. Then Helmeppo watched as Usopp took a deep breath and let it out slowly. Helmeppo put his weapon away.

“That one is still alive,” he informed Coby.

Coby looked at Usopp before making his way over. He stopped when Usopp’s eyes flashed a glowing purple color. Coby took a deep breath and continued. The feeling of un want grew as he got closer. Coby raised his hands.

“I’m not going to hurt you,” he said, “I’m a friend of Luffy’s and Zoro’s.”

“Friend?” asked Usopp.

His voice was a bit quiet and horsed. Coby, then, noticed the cut on his throat.

“Yes friend,” Coby said, “I want to help you…”

“…” Usopp was silent for a bit, “then help…so tired…”

Coby nodded to Helmeppo for him to get a doctor and a wagon to carry the dead. Coby gently touched Usopp’s arm.

“Come,” said Coby, “let’s get a doctor to check you out and fix you up. Then you can rest.”

Usopp nodded. He let Coby lead him down and to the doctor that came with another wagon to carry him to the hospital.

Coby came by to check on Usopp the next day. He blinked when he saw that Usopp’s long nose was gone. Coby looked at the doctor, Doc. Sarvin.

“It was too burnt to save,” said Doc. Sarvin.

Coby nodded and entered the room. He closed the door. Usopp looked over at him. Coby smiled and sat next to his bed.

“Hey,” Coby said, “how are you feeling?”

“In pain,” answered Usopp, “what is this island?”

“This is Hope Island,” answered Coby, “here pirates and marines live here in peace.”

“That’s interesting,” said Usopp turning to look out the window.

“Usopp could you tell me what exactly happen,” Coby said.

Usopp remained silent. Coby sighed.

This is going to take a while, he thought.
