    Chopper was shitting his pants but Usopp insisted they charge forward towards the danger area having heard Momonosuke was in danger.

    "Have faith in Franky's machine!"

    This is the Usopp we want to see.

    Usopp always had brave moments to be honest. yes, he is most of the time into "typical Usopp", but his brave side shines when needed

    He was brave back syrup village. The last 20 years is basically oda placating some racist editor or something. You don't go from firstmate taller than Sanji and Zoro and the only other hat wearing member to cowardice hotsauce carrying no father having moron.

    Agree with OP, that was a nice Usopp moment.

    Somehow feel that Oda might be springing a further surprising development with Usopp if that giant comment in the same panel is of any note. If referring to the Numbers and if this goes by with Usopp's extensive history and luck with other races like the dwarves/giantkind in several arcs(Little Garden/Enies Lobby/Dressrosa), God Usopp might actually sway them over to his side. Maybe those Numbers are also more members of the original Giant Warrior Pirates :hm

    Alright, looking good so far Usopp... now... all we need Oda to do is NOT REVERT HIM back to flailing around and sobbing like an idiot.

    Can we do that? Give him some dignity like he should be getting since it's his dream to become a warrior that's taken seriously?

    Please? :cry

    He's always brave. Him running is just a gag at this point or if you wanna go with some other folks headcannon it's just him getting distance so he can fight properly. He is the sniper after all :catdefeat

    Ussop has been as he should be for the entirety of Wano.
    Oda making a mockery of his character in Dressrosa seems to have paid off as he hasn't been a chicken or had snot dribbling out his nose all arc long. He's been cool and competent. He should have been this way since the skip but whatever, I'll take what I can get.
    Honestly one of the top funny moments in OP for me.
    I disagree. We thought that nonsense was a gag post skip but no, Oda proved in Dressrosa,that he really, had regressed Ussops development for no reason.

    Oda made it his EoS objective to be brave, so he regresses him every now and then, because of course can't have any Strawhat meet his goal until Raftel because reasons.
    :gglife

    But because he already actually had this character development multiple times, it can be a bit inconsistent.
    In any case whenever truly necessary he steps up.

    Hopefully Usopp builds up on this and Oda leaves the cowardice to Nami and Chopper. I never understood how Usopp could have a dad like Yasopp and be the way he was, genetically speaking, he should have been born a badass.

    Tbf Chopper is the only one who should somewhat get away with being a coward but even Nami shouldn't be so anymore.

    The big secret of Usopp is that he has always been both coward AND brave.

    And neither is gonna change anytime soon, if ever.

    He did not regress.

    Dressrosa was the first time Usopp had to prove his bravery to help strangers. Before then, he only had to do so for his crewmates or people like Kaya. He ran away because he was ready to die for his crewmates but not for strangers.

    Every arc forces Usopp to prove his bravery in a different context. That's why it seems he is regressing, but he is actually reaching new heights of bravery every arc.

    But he will never stop being a coward, because bravery is not about being fearless, it's about facing your fears.

    Wano will probably put Usopp in another situation he is not prepared to face so he flees again, only to find yet another type of bravery.

    Usopp's story is not of a fearless badass, it's about a weak and coward dude who needs to push himself to face progressively harder scenarios every arc.

    Here's hoping that he ends up proving himself in an epic battle against some of the Numbers, they'd be the perfect opponents for him since they're probably big and dumb so he could showcase his strategic thinking and have a cool hit and run battle with them. Would defs give him a great time-skip showing that he desperately needs.

    Stop reading 2 piece Mark.

    Dude is living cowardice from the start. Him being brave 3 times in 1000 chapters is the gag, not the opposite.

    He's not even funny anymore as he used to be pre TS.

    Him and Sanji are now just a gag. But at least Sanji has some epic panels.

    Let him rest in peace.
