|“||There comes a time when a man has to stand and fight. That time is when his friends or dreams are laughed at.||„|
|“||You dare to slander my own Captain to my face? Sure, if he was the type to betray us... things might have been easier! We might wanna tuck our tails and run but he never, ever fails to believe in our strength as a group until it breaks our own backs! Which means we step up and meet his hopes for as long as our lives hold out!||„|
Usopp serves as the crew's sharpshooter, and previously served as the (barely competent) repairman for the ship. He's the son of Yasopp, a sharpshooter serving under Shanks, and comes from the East Blue. Usopp had a reputation on his home island of being a serial liar who claimed that pirates were attacking, which came back to haunt him when real pirates actually attacked. He's a rather boastful seventeen/nineteen year-old who likes to tell tall tales (several of which actually do come true, after a fashion), though he's more prone to hiding behind the stronger crew members such as Zoro when he actually gets into a fight. However, when push comes to shove he is very dependable. He specializes in the use of a slingshot, called the Galaxy Slingshot (Ginga Pachinko), which he replaced with the Kabuto and later the Black Kabuto. These slingshot, coupled with his talent in tricking enemies, and his absurd sniping skills, make him a redoubtable sniper able to intervene at a very long range.
His dream is to better himself and become a brave warrior like his father Yasopp, who serves on board the ship captained by Shanks, Luffy’s idol. According to Word of God, he is the physically-weakest member of the crew, and his worries about not being able to keep up with the stronger members and resulting inner turmoil put him at odds with Luffy during one story arc, and ultimately resulted in the creation of an alter ego named Sogeking which he uses to draw on his inner strength and courage.
When the crew went their separate ways, he sought the teachings of Heracles on Bowin Island, spending the next two years in a treacherous forest. The experience earned him new weapons and made him a fighter that no longer turns tail at the first sight of enemies.
His first bounty, as "Sogeking", was 30,000,000 berries. Usopp was not personally wanted until after the events of Dressrosa, the government finally recognized Usopp himself by name and gave him his current bounty of 200,000,000 berries. In addition, he was given a new official epithet to go with his real name: "God" Usopp.

Hissatsu Shuriken Ryuu Seigun: Usopp fires a chain of several attached Shuriken which, when fired, separate into a large spread of shuriken to cover a wider radius.
Hissatsu Sakuretsu Saboten Boshi: Usopp fires a green pellet that explodes on impact and showers the victim with quills.

Usopp Golden Pound: A technique in which Usopp uses a "10-Ton Hammer". The hammer is almost identical to the five-ton hammer in appearance, but it is much larger. While the hammer looks intimidating, it is actually a giant balloon on a stick.
Impact Dial: A Dial that absorbs any blows directed to it and can release them back at the attacker. Usopp can thus use this to absorb a powerful blow such as Luffy's Gomu Gomu no Bazooka and release it back at the original source or any other opponent. The downside is that the recoil from the released energy is akin to the original blow.
Haki: There are normally two types of Haki regular people can tap into: the Kenbunshoku Haki which allows individuals to sense the presence of others, and Busōshoku Haki which allows individuals to create an invisible armor around them.
