Usopp serves as the crew's sharpshooter, and previously served as the (barely competent) repairman for the ship. He 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 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.
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 dubbed Sogeking which he uses to draw on his inner strength and courage.
Sogeking has a bounty of 30 million Berries. Usopp was not personally wanted until the Dressrosa arc, where Donquixote Doflamingo sets an astounding 500 million Berries bounty for Usopp's head. "God" Usopp's current bounty is 200,000,000 berries.

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. There is however a third type of Haki, Haōshoku Haki, that only a few individuals can use. Usopp is not one of these individuals
- Kenbunshoku Haki: Usopp has only begun realizing his potential with this form of Haki. He was capable of sensing the presense of Luffy, Law, and Sugar from several kilometers away, but only with intense focus and determination.
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.
Hissatsu Kayaku Boshi: Usopp fires a highly explosive pellet filled with gunpowder. As Sogeking, this is called Sogeking Gunpowder Star.
Atlas Suisei: Usopp shoots four high speed Kayaku Boshi with smoke tails which converge together and hit a target. The arcs the four shots make resemble the horns of an Atlas Beetle.
Kaen Boshi: Usopp fires a pellet containing flammable substances, he sometimes throws bottles with flammable substances in them at the opponent just prior to this attack to increase the damage.
Hissatsu Fire Bird Star: Usopp fires what can be assumed to be a very strong Kaen Boshi in the shape of a massive phoenix, it also seems to summon a massive ring of fire once it makes contact.
Usopp Hammer: Using an ordinary work hammer, Usopp bashes his opponent on the head. Can be repeated many times for a stronger attack.
Usopp Pound: Usopp uses a massive and intimidating "5-Ton Hammer" to strike a target. Actually just two frying pans, a metal sheet and a stick – weighing 2 kg combined.
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.
Hissatsu Midoriboshi: Devil: Using Pop Greens, Usopp creates a large carnivorous plant which attacks his enemies.
