One Piece is one of the animes best valued by users, and it is that it has not only managed to survive over time (something that is not usual), but it has also done so while maintaining its quality, and even improving it. The work of Eichiro Oda has managed to transcend, becoming one of the most important intellectual properties in the world, which has also spread to video games, and including “live action” films, like the one being prepared by Netflix.
Probably one of the things that stands out the most in this work is its intricate story, which has many surprises in store for us. Today, we are going to focus on one of them, and that is that during one of the first arcs, Nami, one of the first members of the Straw Hats, decides to betray them. This leads to a lot going on in the plot, culminating in one of the most spectacular fights in the beginning of One Piece.
Next, We are going to tell you why Nami decided to leave, and therefore betray, the Straw Hats, the crew that he had joined several chapters before. Of course, this article will contain spoilers about the plot of One Piece, although this happens practically at the beginning of this work.
He had a more important reason for betraying them
In the series and the manga we are given the superficial reason, and that is that the island where Nami lived was attacked by pirates, commanded by Arlong, a Fishman. The latter, took advantage of Nami’s abilities, and extorted her to get money, with which to pay for her freedom and all her people. As we are told, the reason Nami leaves them is to continue helping the Arlong pirates, since they were her real crew.
This earned Nami the immediate hatred of many fans, but the key is something that the play gives us to understand, but does not explain properly. At a certain point, Nami remembers his “real crew”, and that is that from the beginning he was part of the Arlong pirates. As soon as that happens, fear begins to invademainly fearing for his new friends, whom he initially used for his own interests, but whom he ended up appreciating.
Therefore, and although he probably also had an influence, the real reason for the betrayal was not his people or his own well-being, but that of his new companions. He feared that if he told them about his situation, they would end up being killed by Arlong, since he had already seen the fearsome strength of this character.
