How Old Is Luffy?
Right now, Luffy is 19 years old. He was born on May 5th, making him a Taurus. Since he was born on Children’s Day, Luffy has always had a very childish personality.
His blood type is F, and he currently has a 3 billion bounty on his head following the Wano arc. However, when compared to previous and current emperors, Luffy's current bounty is the lowest.
Luffy is 174 cm tall at 19 years old. But prior to the time jump, Luffy was only 17 years old and stood at 172 cm.
Luffy is also the youngest of the Four Emperors and the Worst Generation members.
However, Eiichiro Oda reveals that Luffy will be the fourth son of the Straw Hat Pirates if they ever become a real family.
When Luffy mistakenly consumed the Paramecia-like devil fruit Gomu Gomu no Mi, causing his body to turn rubbery, he was just 7 years old.
In SBS 89 (Shitsumon o Boshuu Suru), Eiichiro Oda talks about Luffy's potential appearances at 40 and 60 years old in other timelines.
How Old Is Zoro?
Roronoa Zoro, also known as Pirate Hunter Zoro, is 21 years old and has a 1,111,000,000 bounty on him after the time jump.
In contrast to Luffy, Zoro has blood type XF. Furthermore, Zoro is a Scorpio because he was born on November 11th.
Zoro encountered Luffy for the first time when he was just 19 years old and decided to join his crew.
Zoro's height increased from 178 cm at age 19 to 181 cm at age 21, with a chest measurement of roughly 110 cm, or 43 in.
According to Eiichiro Oda, Zoro would be regarded as the eldest son among all the Straw Hat Pirates.
In SBS 91, the One Piece creator also teased Zoro's potential appearances in two separate timelines at ages 40 and 60.
How Old Is Sanji?
As of writing, Sanji is 21 years old, with a bounty of 1,032,000,000 on his head after the Wano arc.
Sanji was born on March 2nd, making him a Pisces. His birthday can be deduced from his name because the number three in Japanese is 'San' and the number two is 'Ji'.
In addition, on March 2nd, Japan observes Hinamatsuri, also known as Girl's Day or Doll's Day, a direct reference to Sanji's love and passion for girls.
Sanji was 19 years old and stood at 177 cm before the time jump. At 21 years old, Sanji stands at 180 cm, making him shorter than Zoro.
Originally, Sanji's name would have been Naruto, and he would have looked like a gun-slinger like Gill Bastar, the main character of the one-shot manga Wanted!
Sanji is the Vinsmoke Family's third son. As a child, he was imprisoned and forced to wear an iron mask.
However, in the case of the Straw Hat Pirates, Eiichiro Oda identifies Sanji as the second son.
In SBS 98, Oda showed Sanji's possible appearances at ages 40 and 60 in different timelines.
How Old Is Usopp?
Usopp is currently 19 years old; the same age as Luffy. He was only 17 years old when he made his series debut.
Usopp has a 500 million bounty on his head following the Wano arc.
He was born on April 1st, also known as April Fool's Day around the world, which reflects Usopp's personality and behavior, as well as his ability to fool people.
Usopp was supposed to have a shorter nose and look more like his father, and he was also supposed to be a sniper on Luffy's crew.
Usopp is the third son of the Straw Hat Pirates, according to Eiichiro Oda.
Oda also depicted Usopp's possible appearances in different timelines at the ages of 40 and 60 in SBS 94.
How Old Is Nami?
Nami, also known as the Cat Burglar, is 20 years old after the time jump, but she was only 18 years old when she first appeared in the series.
She is a year older than Luffy and Usopp and a year younger than Sanji and Zoro. She currently has a 366 million bounty on her head.
Nami was born on July 3, which is also known as Tanabata or Star Festival in Japan. Her birthday is also derived from her name, as 7-3 is inferred from Na-mi.
Nami's height was 169 cm when she was 18 years old and 170 cm as a 20-year-old. She also has blood type X.
In her early concepts, Nami was originally going to be a battle axe user in a cyborg form.
If Nami had not been a pirate, she was going to be a childcare worker.
Among the members of the Straw Hat Pirates, Eiichiro Oda considers Nami the daughter of the crew.
Like the other members, Oda also showed her possible appearances at the ages of 40 and 60 in SBS 92.
How Old Is Tony Tony Chopper?
Next on the list is Tony Tony Chopper, who was born on December 24, Christmas Eve. He is currently 17 years old and has a 1,000 bounty on his head.
Prior to the time jump, Chopper debuted in the series at the age of 15.
He is the Straw Hat Pirates' doctor and the sixth member to join the crew, but he is the first to join after entering Grand Line.
According to One Piece Green: Secret Pieces, Chopper was supposed to have stripes on his body as part of his original concept.
Eiichiro Oda refers to Chopper as the Straw Hats' youngest son if they were a family because he is the crew's youngest member.
Moreover, Chopper was supposed to be an elementary school teacher if he hadn't become a pirate.
Chopper's possible appearance between the ages of 40 and 60 was also shown on SBS 97 by Eiichiro Oda.
How Old Is Nico Robin?
Nico Robin is one of the crew's elders, having reached the age of 30 after the time jump. However, Robin was only 28 years old when she first appeared in the series.
As of writing, Robin has a 930 million bounty on her head.
Robin was born on February 6, making her an Aquarius woman. She was born on the same day as her mother, Nico Olivia.
She is the fourth tallest member of the Straw Hat Pirates, standing at 188 cm and having a body measurement of B100-160-H90, according to SBS 69.
She was originally envisioned as a man who liked plants. This idea, however, was given to Usopp's character after the time jump.
Unlike the other crew members, Robin voluntarily joined Luffy's crew without a formal invitation.
Eiichiro Oda considers Robin to be the Straw Hat Pirates' mother, based on her age and personality.
Besides that, Eiichiro Oda has also shown Robin's possible faces at the ages of 40 and 60 in SBS 100.
How Old Is Franky?
After the time jump, Iron Man Franky is one of the crew's oldest members, at 36 years old. He was only 34 years old when he first appeared in the series.
Franky has a 394 million bounty on his head as of writing.
Franky was born on March 9th, making him a Pisces. His birthday is derived from the Japanese transcription of the first and last syllables of his first epithet.
At 34 years old, Franky stood at 225 cm, but after two years, he has grown significantly to 240 cm.
Furthermore, Franky and Zoro share the same blood type.
While Robin is the crew's mother, Eiichiro Oda believes that if the Straw Hats became a real family, Franky would be the father.
Eiichiro Oda illustrated Franky's possible appearances between the ages of 50 and 70 on SBS 101.
