5 ONE PIECE DETAILS YOU DIDN'T KNOW WERE ONLY CANON TO THE ANIME

The anime adaptation of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga has introduced new details to its anime canon over time, influencing the interpretation of some events throughout the plot to varying degrees. Numerous reasons explain why anime adaptations seldom mirror the events of the manga exactly. However, anime canon remains distinct from anime filler because the former has a basis in the source material, while the latter does not.
While some anime-only details are minor alterations to existing source material, others influence the narrative more significantly. Plot details may be changed in the anime to soften violent scenes for broadcast, depict events unseen in the manga, or alter the interpretation of a scene. Regardless of the motivation behind departing from the manga's presentation of events, anime canon can introduce exciting new details to the story that entertain viewers while deepening the lore of the One Piece franchise. For fans looking to celebrate these unique moments, there's a wealth of anime merchandise available.

1. The Davy Back Fight Is Longer With Even More Foxy Pirates & Straw Hats

One Piece's Long Ring Long Land Arc features numerous changes in the anime, making it feel more like filler than other arcs. However, the Davy Back fight between the Foxy Pirates and the Straw Hat Pirates qualifies as anime canon since the competition is included in the manga. The numerous changes to this arc prove it's never guaranteed that an anime adaptation will resemble its source material perfectly.

The Davy Back fight is a traditional pirate competition in which the winner may permanently steal any pirate from their opponent's crew. The high-stakes event is raised to new heights in the anime by including almost the entirety of both crews in a six-round ordeal instead of limiting the event to a smaller group of characters over three rounds as the manga does. The Davy Back's extended length and cast make the sequence more entertaining by introducing new dynamics to the chaotic affair.

2. Zoro & Sanji Are Captured Instead of Vanishing Mysteriously on Thriller Bark

One minor change to the One Piece anime adaptation of the Thriller Bark Arc removes the ambiguity surrounding the disappearance of two Straw Hat Pirates. Thriller Bark is a massive ship that belongs to former Warlord of the Sea, Gecko Moria, who lures in victims to take over their bodies with his Devil Fruit powers.

Straw Hat Pirates Roronoa Zoro and Vinsmoke Sanji roam Thriller Bark in search of other Straw Hat Pirates who have gone missing before disappearing themselves. Unlike the manga, which depicts the Straw Hat duo vanishing mysteriously, the anime sequence reveals zombified spider mice as their captors. The added detail helps the narrative flow more smoothly by reducing the ambiguity of their sudden disappearance without changing the understanding that they too have been captured.

3. The First Bomb Collar Explosion Gets a More Hopeful Ending

Numerous One Piece scenes are presented less violently in the anime adaptation by removing harsh elements, but adding new details can also influence the interpretation of events. The first bomb collar, a monitoring device for people enslaved by Celestial Dragons, explodes at Sabaody Archipelago in a scene that includes more details in the anime than in the manga.

During the Sabaody Archipelago Arc, an enslaved individual named Devil Dias attempts to escape enslavement, triggering the explosive device to detonate. Afterward, a Celestial Dragon kicks and shoots the victim of the collar explosion. In the anime adaptation, the sequence extends beyond the gunshot long enough for two people to arrive with a stretcher for the victim, giving the scene a slightly more uplifting feel with the hope that the victim might recover since he's being cared for.

4. The Straw Hat Pirates Take a Moment to React to the News of Marineford

During the Post-War Arc, several One Piece cover stories are animated into a brief sequence that captures a significant moment during the series from the perspectives of multiple characters. The Straw Hats, who were separated by Kuma at the end of the Thriller Bark Arc, are pictured reacting to the news that Monkey D. Luffy's brother, Fire Fist Ace, has been killed during the battle of Marineford.

Each member of the Straw Hat Crew takes a moment to respond to the news of Ace's death, and they are all united by their concern for Luffy, who witnessed the brutal murder firsthand. Expanding on these reaction cover stories in the anime gives an appropriate weight to the devastating toll of the Marineford news on the Straw Hat Pirates. This heartbreaking Post-War Arc sequence remains a memorable moment for Luffy's crew that reveals their genuinely deep connections to each other.

5. The Reverie Arc Doesn't Exclude Franky & Jinbe in the Anime

The One Piece anime maintains a streak of featuring every member of the Straw Hat Pirates at some point in each arc, but the same isn't true for the manga. However, the Reverie Arc would've been the first anime arc of the series to break this streak if it stayed true to the source material.

Franky and Jinbe, who aren't present alongside their crewmates, are the only Straw Hat Pirates not featured in the manga during this arc. The anime has flashbacks that include the two missing crewmates, keeping up the trend of featuring all Straw Hat Pirates in every arc. Altering this Reverie Arc sequence to include the full Straw Hat lineup is perhaps the most thoughtful detail added to the One Piece anime adaptation.
