sorry I'm a bit late, but I had to add to the usopp love. I've always been a fan of Usopp because he's easy to relate to personally
You’re not late!!! It’s never late to join the Usopp Love ♥
You’re right ^^ I think we have enough characters without flawless or that are always right. And then you have Usopp, a “coward” who always lies and have to make stupid treats to his enemies. But that’s not something that we would do?
I mean, if I have to fight against a creature which definitely is more strong than me… of course I would be scared.
We know that Straw Hats have their own style to fight, this style is based on what they’re good at or they know how to do. Nami has her Clima Tact, Franky have his weapons, Brook sometimes use his music, Chopper use his knowledges of medicine/anatomy to defeat the enemy, etc.
Usopp, is good to make new inventions, artifacts, is an excellent sniper and well, he’s good to lie.
Sanji said “I’ll do what you can’t and you go do what I can’t”.
The Monster Trio is known because of their monstrous force, unfortunately many people love more those characters because they are strong, they aren’t afraid and they can’t be defeated, and when you meet a character like Usopp, well is hard to like the character. He’s not strong and he’s afraid.
And we forgot or we don’t see Usopp as a person. A normal person like us. Can we put on his shoes? And think about all his fights? Because… wow, how did he not die?
All he used was his abilities, sure some of them were dirty tricks or lies, but is what he knew to do. Is what he is capable to do. And we have to learn a lot about him.
It’s ok being afraid and that you’re not strong. But do whatever you’re capable of to help. To help your nakama. And all the fights he has won were for helping his nakama. And without know it, he has become stronger and brave.
Now, all I can say is that the Usopp we knew is just the before of the Usopp we know now, who is no far away to become a brave warrior.
