Sex & Nudity



Episode 128 shows two of the male characters' buttocks from far away, slightly covered by steam.

Suggestive references and jokes throughout the series.

Nami sometimes offers to show her naked body to people (shown from behind, the view is always blocked) if they pay her money.

Lots of the characters can be perverted or make pervy comments. Two of the main characters, Sanji and Brook are total perverts. Sanji will frequently flirt with ladies only to be rejected, while Brook is more forward - asking women to show him their panties (he is always beaten up humorously afterwards).

Nami is shown in the shower in one episode. Her buttocks are shown through a veil of steam.

One of the main characters almost gets molested, but is saved.

Three girls are explained to have been molested and abused (the molestation is never shown). They are slaves, and are also beaten daily.

Cleavage is commonly seen later in the anime. Much later in the series Nami is shown always wearing a bikini top with jeans that show off her midriff.

One of the pirates later in the series is a drag queen, he has the power to change people into the opposite gender. This is later shown as a man is humorously transformed into a woman.

Violence & Gore


A surprisingly violent anime, despite it's "happy-go-lucky" approach.

Nami stabs the tattoo on her shoulder with a knife numerous times in an emotional and violent frenzy. The tattoo is a mark that was put on her when she was forced to join a pirate crew whose captain killed her mother. Blood pours out of the stab wound, and it's presented in a very intense manner.

Blood usually appears whenever characters fight (they get punched, shot, sliced, etc.), and there is usually a lot of it.

Violent, psychopathic and downright evil characters throughout the series (just what is expected of piracy), and all of them do horrible things. Such as: Slavery, killings, torture, bullying and fraud.

One of the main characters gets beaten badly. He survives all of these attacks, but is a total coward, which greatly amplifies the violence that is dealt to him. In one scene, he gets hit straight in the face by a 4-ton baseball bat. We see his broken nose later on. In another scene, he gets brutally beaten and stomped on by some men. These are of course one of the many beating scenes of this particular character, but he survives.

A pirate gets his arm twisted and broken by a violent pirate called when he is accused of cheating in a card game. He then gets shot many times in the chest and kicked out of a window and is then killed off-screen.

The main character called Luffy, suffers incredible physical and mental pain throughout the series.

Some people get electrified to the point where they are burned by a god, who has an electrical ability.

Lots of impalements (all graphic) and some cutting/beheading throughout. Blood is shown in copious amounts.

A pirate gets half his face torn off. Very bloody but partially obscured.

A main character is killed at one point by having another character punch through his chest as blood flies out.

Every kind of violent behavior, method or attack imaginable is shown in this anime. It's everywhere, because there's a lot of intense fighting over the course of over 600+ episodes. Bones break and blood flies everywhere.



A lot of profanity in this show.

A few strong curse words, such as: Shit, Bitch, Slut, Whore, Son of a Bitch, and one use of Fuck

Some milder profanities, such as Hell, Crap, Bastard, and Damn

Some name calling like moron and idiot.


Both alcohol and smoking occur VERY frequently. Many of the main characters smoke cigarette/cigars and drink alcohol.

Alcohol (especially beer and rum) is the typical thing with pirates, so expect to see a lot of it.

Sanji (one of the main characters) is a chain-smoker and is always seen with a cigarette in his mouth.

One character, Smoker, is always shown smoking two cigars at once.

Some fishmen use drugs called: Energy steroids, which make them stronger every time they consume one. Later a villain is shown eating hundreds of them and has violent drawbacks because of them.

Children, who are used as test subjects, are given highly addictive drugs in the form of candy and then suffer from withdrawl.


Nothing pops out or scares you, but some scenes in which people are on the brink of death or in an intense situation might scare some viewers. The light-hearted and very funny scenes can help recover from the intense stuff.

Some villains can be outright cruel and complete monsters without empathy and will kill and torture anyone who annoys them.

Lots and lots of emotional or just intense scenes throughout. Some characters' background stories are emotional and might upset some viewers, especially Nami and Brook's pasts.

A rather dark and sad anime at times, but a large majority is filled with lighthearted moments.
