Yasopp, known as "Chaser", is the sniper and an officer of the Red Hair Pirates. He is also the father of Usopp and the widower of Banchina.


His appearance is very similar to his son, Usopp. However, he does not share the same long nose and has blond hair, the former being a hereditary trait of Usopp's mother, as well as her darker shade of hair. Twenty years ago, Yasopp had the same tight curls and black hair as Usopp, and in Romance Dawn, his hair was styled in loose waves, but later appearances show him with it in dreadlocks. In addition to that, his body was slimmer while in his latest appearance, it seems to have become more muscular.

His name was written on his headband, while in his latest appearance, he has no headband and his name is written on his upper right arm. During his time in Foosha Village, he wore a dark-blue shirt, dark-green pants reaching down to his calves, and blue shoes with buckles on them. He donned his headband at this time. At Marineford, he sports a dark A-shirt, short pants, standard boots, and a large belt with a bag attached to it. There is also a little necklace around his neck. He retains his trademark star-patterned cape, and he has his rifle attached to his back via a band. 


He shares many personality traits with his son, including being able to encourage the rest of his crew to join in with his fun. He is very proud of his son, Usopp, to the point where he would often talk about his son over and over again to Luffy, which led Luffy to recognize Usopp on sight from Yasopp's stories alone. During his time in Luffy's village, Yasopp felt close to Luffy because he is the same age as his son whom he left at home.


Usopp is Yasopp's son. Usopp does not know much about his father, only that he is a member of Shanks's pirate crew, a fact that he takes great pride in. It is said by Merry back at Syrup Village that Usopp started lying that pirates were coming to the village, hoping that his father would come back when his mother fell ill. While the Red-Haired Pirates were docked at Windmill Village, Yasopp often spoke fondly of his son to a young Monkey D. Luffy. Usopp greatly respects his father and has inherited his phenomenal marksmanship.

It was later revealed that Yasopp now knows about his son being a member of the Straw Hat Pirates to the point where he is nervous about reuniting with him.


Banchina was Yasopp's wife. Banchina was the one who persuaded her husband to leave home and fulfill his dream to become a pirate. He did so and left her and their son to join Shanks twelve years ago. Banchina was proud of her husband and admired his courage.
