Orochi's backstory is kind of a boring repeat of Doflamingo's but not as exciting

    Yeah basically, but theae types of blood feud vendettas are a thing throughout the history of storytelling.

    Do you not see how he was hunted down because people hated his family, which is a high ranking noble family, constantly pursuing him though he and his parents did nothing, killing them off and making him hate them and want to kill everyone ?

    It's literally the exact same backstory.

    DD's father gave up his CD's status iirc, while Orochi's grandfather killed ppl to have a status.

    DD was a borned asshole, while Orochi wasn't.

    Orochi wants to avenge his clan, not DD, who just doens't care.

    Nothing similar.

    Yes, very very similar.

    Let’s like you driving a red BMW and your friend drives a blue one of the same make.

    DD's father gave up his status.

    Orochi's grandfather killed ppl to get one.

    Big difference imo.

    Besides DD was portrayed as a borned asshole, not Orochi, who has been "manipulated" by the old hag.

    They are similar in their overall premise, but have different circumstances and different results. Orochi's "backstory" is also rather barebones.

    You can't expect Oda to not "recycle" some story structures for villains' backstories over the span of almost 1000 chapters. This premise doesn't necessarily make the in-depth storyunoriginal.

    Doflamingo and Orochi also turned out rather different, other than being evil. I'd say Orochi is not necessarily rotten to his core like Doflamingo is.

    Orochi said he only became shogun to purposefully destroy the entire country, and to make the entire population suffer.

    How is that not being rotten to the core ? :lmao

    I'm just saying the persecution aspect made it a tiiinsy bit too similar is all XD

    We don't know how he used to be. Doflamingo was rotten from the very beginning and looked down on everyone since he was a mere child. He thought he was worthy of being an overlord and use humans as if they were mere toys. Doflamingo's behavior and goals didn't necessarily or only stem from the will to exact vengeance upon those who hurt him, but rather from the belief he was born far superior to humans.

    All we know about Orochi is that he was pushed to the edge and became an evil manaic consumed by the will to avenge his family..

    Big Mom stays the most original NW backstory tbh. Everything else is Paradise 2.0

    I don't really dislike it that much tho.

    We got whole arcs, powers and peoples motivations being similar to one another its not a big deal for characters backstories to be similar either.

    Orochi's backstory shows how messed up people are to persecuted someone because of their family name no matter if he/she did something wrong or not. The people who killed Orochi's parents were wrong but that's no excuse for Orochi to treat his homeland and his fellow citizens badly as he's doing.
