One Piece filler episodes: Full list of every episode you can skip

Nearly all new fans want a list of One Piece filler episodes to know which episodes to skip. The idea of an anime that has run for over 1100 episodes is incomprehensible to most new-gen viewers, who are more used to seasonal anime. However, One Piece is one of the most popular manga in the world, and more importantly, it is still ongoing.

Since the anime closely follows the manga, it will at least have over 1300 episodes by the time the series ends. However, not every episode can be canon to the manga if the anime aims to keep pace with the plot. For people looking to skip to the good part, here is a comprehensive One Piece filler list. All these episodes can be skipped if the fans wish to since they are not very important for the manga-canon storyline.

The One Piece filler list would be incomplete, however, without listing individual episodes that exist outside of any specific arc.

Episode numberEpisode name
98"Here Come the Desert Pirates! The Men Who Live Free"
99"Spirit of the Fakes! Heart of the Rebel Army, Camus!"
102"Ruins and Lost Ways! Vivi, Her Friends, and the Country's Form!"
303"The Criminal is Boss Luffy? Chase the Vanished Great Sakura Tree"
336"Chopper Man Departs! Protect the TV Station by the Shore"
492"The Strongest Tag Team! Luffy and Toriko's Hard Struggle!"
542"Team Formation! Save Chopper"
590"History's Strongest Collaboration vs. Glutton of the Sea"
907"Romance Dawn"
1084"Time to Depart - The Land of Wano and the Straw Hats"

One interesting fact about the series is that only 10 percent of the show is filler. This means someone new to the anime will still have to watch over 900 episodes to catch up with the weekly release. Unlike other long-running shows that are saturated with fillers, however, the fillers in One Piece enjoy widespread appreciation from fans and should not be missed.

However, one must remember that One Piece is currently over 1110 episodes long, while there are only 1114 chapters. To maintain that chapter-to-episode ratio, at least 20% of every episode needs to be anime original. The series is notorious for its slow pacing and stretched-out content.

However, that only makes the anime that much more distinct from the manga. Unlike Boruto, however, One Piece fillers don't introduce concepts that completely change the existing power system in the manga.

It does, however, introduce characters like Shanks's daughter, Uta, for the sake of tying the movies to the ongoing series. Nearly all of the movies belong on the One Piece filler list, with only a few receiving canon validation after release via official art from author and illustrator Eiichiro Oda.


The most recent One Piece filler was a treat for fans

The most recent standalone filler was episode 1084 titled Time to Depart - The Land of Wano and the Straw Hats. The episode features the Straw Hats and the Nine Red Scabbards visiting the Kuri Castle to say their final goodbyes. The highlights of the episode were Luffy bidding farewell to Oden, and Zoro visiting Pedro and Yasuie at their graves with alcohol.

This took place as an off-screen moment in the manga chapter 1056 but the audience greatly loved its addition to the anime. The Straw Hats giving a proper farewell to those who sacrificed their lives for Wano was a fitting showcase of what sets them apart from other pirates. The episode easily becomes one of the well-loved One Piece filler episode.


One Piece synopsis

In the series, Gol D. Roger was known as the Pirate King who had sailed the “Grand Line”. When he was captured by the World Government, he revealed certain details that gave rise to the Golden Age of Pirates. He said that “One Piece” is the world’s greatest treasure and it embodies everything that the world has to offer. Anyone who would end up getting their hands on the treasure would have all the riches in the world and would enjoy a level of freedom that no one else can.

Monkey D. Luffy is a teenager who wants to get his hands on this treasure simply because it would be the most exciting adventure he could have. In an attempt to follow the footsteps of his hero, Luffy gathers a crew and sets sail into the Grand Line, hoping he can find the most coveted treasure the world has to offer.


Final thoughts

Unlike other Shonen series which tire fans out with fillers, One Piece sets itself apart with minimal filler content. Thus, fans can continue enjoying the series without major breaks or skipping considerable anime-only content. The current season has entered into the final arc of One Piece and doesn't have any filler episodes yet.

However. there are still many mixed canon/filler and anime canon episodes which would confuse those who watch the anime after reading the manga. These episodes don't deviate too much from the original content; they simply give extra context or add new scenes to flesh out the series. They are also important to balance the chapter-to-episode ratio since One Piece is an ongoing series.
