One Piece is a highly regarded anime series that has been praised for its captivating story and immersive world-building. However, not all anime fans are fans of One Piece, and some viewers have been turned off by certain characters that they feel make a bad first impression. Some characters in One Piece get such negative reactions from some viewers because of their personalities, actions, or even their looks. Some characters can be perceived as annoying, or simply unlikeable. Others may be seen as too overpowered, which may be a turn-off for some viewers.
To find out which One Piece characters are the most disliked among fans, we consulted the “unpopularity ranking” of the Japanese website Suki Kira. This site receives over 7 million visitors per month and allows users to vote for their favorite and least favorite characters, including both real people (who worked on the series) and fictional characters from popular anime series such as Chainsaw Man and Naruto. By consulting this list, we can get a sense of which One Piece characters might be the most unpopular among fans.
Note: The Suki Kira website caters primarily to Japanese anime fans, so while it may not accurately reflect the global popularity of One Piece characters, it does provide interesting insight into the preferences of Japanese fans.
Here are the 10 most disliked One Piece characters according to Japan.
10. Nefertari Vivi
Vivi is the princess of Alabasta and one of the most beloved members of the Straw Hat crew. She was first introduced as an antagonist and part of Crocodile’s crew. In the last arc, Vivis’ father died and she disappeared.
Many fans of One Piece have expressed dislike for Vivi due to her perceived weak personality. While she is passionate about combat, she lacks the ability to contribute effectively in combat situations. In addition, Vivi is known for making impulsive decisions, which often lead to less than desirable outcomes.
9. Kenji Kamiki
As we said at the start, on the Suki Kira website, you can even vote for real people associated with the series. Kenji Kamiki is a One Piece superfan and is appreciated by the One Piece staff. He is an ordinary office worker and regularly reads One Piece and Shounen Jump Magazine. Kenji has made comments on many Otaku culture topics and One Piece topics, which are published in his manga “A Big Fan of One Piece”, which was written by Semimaro Aburakohji.
The reason fans dislike Kanji is because of the attention he gets. Every fan wants to be noticed by their favorite writer, and what Kenji got made many fans jealous, which is fair enough. Kenji’s manga was also a thing that added fuel to the fire, and this may be why most people dislike him.
Yamato is the son (daughter) of Kaida and the person who was expected by most fans as a member of the Straw Hats. He rebelled against his father when he followed the ideology of his father’s greatest enemy, Oden. Yamato instantly became a fan of Luffy as he wanted to free the nation of Wano, just like Oden, and both allied themselves to free Wano from the clutches of Kaido.
Yamato is disliked by some of the fans due to his overwhelming power scaling. It was strange to most fans when a strong character on the same scale as Sanji and Zoro appeared out of nowhere and wanted to be a part of the Straw Hats. Also, his stubbornness was a negative factor in his character, making him less appealing.
Tama is the first character introduced in the Wano Arc and she helps Luffy when he is hungry in Wano Land. She has the Milet-Milet devil fruit, which allows her to make millet dumplings from her cheeks, and whoever eats this dumpling becomes her follower. She has used this ability often in the fight against Kaido.
Fans do not dislike Tama, but her habit of crying in every situation makes her character unappealing to some fans. Her devil fruit is powerful if used with care, but despite that she is a crybaby, which makes her dislike her.

6. Rob Lucci
Rob Lucci was introduced as a member of CP9, a secret government organization. He later became a CP0 agent after losing to Luffy in the Water Seven Arc. He has the Cat-Cat Fruit (Model: Leopard), which gives Lucci the ability to gain the physical skills of a leopard.
Rob Lucci is one of the show’s main antagonists, so there’s no need to tell you why he’s disliked. He has been hunting for Nico Robin, a prominent part of the Straw Hats, since the start of the series, which is why he is disliked. He is currently fighting Luffy in the Wano Arc as he is still at large chasing Nico Robin.
5. Boa Hancock
Boa Hancock is the Kuja Pirates’ captain and the ruler of Amazon Island. She has the Love-Love Devil Fruit, which turns anyone attracted to her to stone. Hancock was a Celestian Dragon servant in her past and the memory is quite sensitive in her mind.
The only reason a section of the fandom dislikes Boa Hancock is her unconditional love for Luffy. She has only met Luffy, and just because of a comment he made in favor of her, Hancock feels head over heels for Luffy, making her character unappealing, despite being the most beautiful character in the franchise.
Carrot is a Mink Tribe member who was a candidate to join the Straw Hats. She is a rabbit mink and has the power to wake up when the full moon appears. Pedro, another member of the mink tribe, trained her, and she still carries his will, when Pedro died during the Whole Cake Island Arc.
Carrot is disliked due to her average character and unimpressive personality. She was expected by most of the fandoms to become part of the Straw Hats, which earned her downvotes from fans who want Yamato to join the Straw Hat crew, instead of Carrot or anyone else.

3. Charlotte Linlin
Charlotte Linlin is the Big Mom Pirates’ captain and Whole Cake Island, ruler. She has 43 husbands and 85 children as she keeps changing husbands after having children with them. She has a Soul-Soul Devil Fruit that allows her to control the souls of people frightened by her aura and transfer this aura to any other living or non-living being.
Linlin is a highly controversial character in the One Piece series, with many fans finding her annoying due to her questionable personality and actions. She is driven by a thirst for power and will go to great lengths to achieve it, showing little respect for others. In addition, Linlin shows favoritism towards certain children, which speaks to her questionable character.
2. Eiichiro Oda
Eiichiro Oda is the original author of One Piece, who started this manga in 1997. Since then, this manga has been a universal phenomenon and has even broken a world record. Oda is known for drawing incredible world-building and hiding references in ordinary manga scenes.
Eiichiro Oda’s inclusion on this list may come as a surprise to some, as he is the creator of the wildly popular One Piece manga series. However, it is worth noting that the preferences and opinions of Japanese anime fans can be unpredictable. A potential reason for Oda’s inclusion on this list is his decision to continue the series beyond the previously announced end point. Despite this, there doesn’t seem to be any legitimate reason to hate the man who has brought so much joy to readers through his work.
Uta is the adopted daughter of Shanks and the main antagonist of One Piece Film Red. She was the musician for the Red Hair Pirates when she was a little girl and later left the crew to follow her dream. She has the Sing-Sing devil fruit, which captivates anyone who hears her voice.
Despite having limited screen time in One Piece, Uta has managed to garner a significant amount of fan backlash, even earning the top spot on this list. There are two primary reasons for this. First, her portrayal in the One Piece: Red movie was met with disappointment by many viewers. Second, the choice to have controversial Japanese singer Ado perform her song in the film was met with criticism, leading Japanese fans to rank Uta as the most disliked character in the series.
The ranking continues as follows:
|14th place||Captain Kuro|
|16th place||Yes good|
|20th place||Marshall D. Teech|
