The series begins with the execution of Gol D. Roger, a man known as the King of the Pirates. Before his death, he told the legend of his treasure, the One Piece. Roger's death caused a Great Pirate Era (大海賊時代 Dai Kaizoku Jidai?) as countless pirates set out to look for his treasure.
Twenty years have passed since Roger's execution, and Monkey D. Luffy, a young boy inspired by the pirate known as "Red-Haired" Shanks, sets off on a journey from the East Blue to succeed Roger and find the treasure. Along the way, he organizes and leads a crew named the Straw Hat Pirates. The crew consists of a swordsman named Roronoa Zoro; the navigator and thief Nami; the liar and cowardly sharpshooter Usopp; the womanizing chef Sanji; the doctor Tony Tony Chopper, an anthropomorphized deer; the archaeologist Nico Robin, a former villain; the cybernetic shipwright Franky; and a musician skeleton named Brook.
The crew crosses paths with diverse villains, such as the Seven Warlords of the Sea and the Marines, who place bounties on Luffy and Zoro's heads.
