Trivia

Roronoa Zoro was originally planned to be introduced as Buggy the Clown's bodyguard.
The three admirals of the Marines: Kizaru, Aokiji amd Akainu are based on the animals that accompanied Momotaro (a Japanese folklore hero). The animals they resemble are a monkey, pheasant and a dog respectively.
The reason why Zoro dislike Sanji is because he treats women differently than he treats men, and ever since Kuina complained about being a girl, Zoro is set on the idea that gender should not decide how you treat a person.
Sanjis name was originally going to be Naruto until Masashi Kishimoto's manga Naruto was released.
Admiral Kizaru, Aokiji and Akainu are also based on actual Japanese actors. They were modeled after Kunie Tanaka, Yûsaku Matsuda and Bunta Sugawara respectively.
Nami was the first main character to appear on screen in the anime before Luffy's famous debut.
In a Manga collaboration with Dragon ball, Luffy was able to ride Goku's cloud which means Luffy had a pure heart.
Episodes from 207 onwards have been broadcast in high-definition at 720p resolution, in addition to standard definition.
In the 4kids version, the name of Captain Smoker is changed to Chaser, to avoid any relation with cigars (one of the many items that were censored in the series). While in the Funimation version, his name is changed back to Smoker and his cigars aren't censored out.
The name of the character Roronoa Zoro is derived from the famous Caribbean pirate Jean David Nau, who nicknamed himself ''L'ollonais''.
4Kids was the second dubbing company to dub One Piece. However, many fans of the original Japanese version detested the editing many episodes and scenes in 4Kids's translations received (editing out all mentions of death, getting rid of cigarettes or replacing them with lollipops, cutting out entire arcs, adding unnecessary jokes and puns in the heavily edited dialog and more). FUNimation eventually acquired rights to dub the series from episode 144 onwards, and eventually obtained the rights to episodes 1-143. The 143 episodes which 4Kids did edit were edited so heavily that they had been cut down to 104 episodes.
Part of the names of Sanji's attacks are in French. Part of Nico Robin's are in Spanish
Luffy was the first anime character to appear in a fashion magazine (Non no).

As Zoro practised Swordplay when he young, he would get his ears pierced, whenever he mastered a sword style. That's why he has three earrings, one for each sword style.
