    The anime of Treasure Island (Takarajima) is great. That final scene with Silver is perfect:

    One of the more famous pirate stories, written by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1880.

    It was the origin of Long John Silver and Jim Hawkins, and the popularizing of a lot of things, suchs as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders.

    It's had countless adaptations, including one by the Muppets. one by Hayao Miyazaki, and the Disney version in space.

    Someone saying that he never heard of Treasure's Island feels like the same as someone who never heard of A Christmas Carol.

    Oh I watched that on TV when I was a kid. Then it stopped airing mid story. Never knew if it got canned or our lazy ass TV just never bought more episodes.Not sure if I first watched an older movie or the one with Christian Bale and Charlton Heston.

    Treasure Island is the quintessential piece of pirate fiction. Pretty much every single popular modern perception of what a pirate is- often drunk, violent, roguish outsiders with great lust for treasure and equally quick to spend it, and pirate captains being cunning, and well-spoken (and perhaps well-educated) gentlemen that are seem a class above their crew and therefore somewhat out of place- and elements associated with them like treasure maps where X marks the spot, parrots, pirate songs, tropical islands, quite a bit of the pirate lingo like "shiver my timbers" is due to Robert Louis Stevenson's book. Only Peter Pan (which itself was influenced by and even contains references to Treasure Island) comes close to having as much an impact.

    Ooh, we talking about Treasure Island? I was in a stage version of that a long time ago! Yeah, for anyone who's really interested in seeing some of the inspiration behind One Piece, I would easily consider that book to be required reading. A lot of the early look of OP feels very Treasure Island-like, for sure, and the book more or less defined the kind of idealized notion of piracy that One Piece is just drenched in. That's not even mentioning the more direct parallels. On top of what others have mentioned, Captain Flint from the book can be seen as a proto-Gold Roger, for example. I recommend at least trying it out!

    Long John Silver from Treasure Island gave rise to the parrot-rearing-single-legged pirate stereotype, along with the X on a treasure map and the 'Pirates set sail upon the high seas to reach an island full of buried treasure' pirate tale plot line, while Captain Hook made the... well, hook popular, and planted the false notion that pirates make their victims walk the plank.

    Now I am wondering, where did the peg leg (Long John Silver actually used a boring crutch), and the Flying Dutchman tale came from?

    The Flying Dutchman is an old seafaring legend, so it's hard to pin down an exact source. There are many variations of the tale, but several of them do name "Van der Decken" as the ship's captain, so One Piece is accurate in that regard... but pretty much only in that regard. It really only because a specifically pirate-related legend AFTER the increase in popularity of pirate fiction, though, the versions that came before it were more open to interpretation. As for peglegs, they were an actual replacement for missing limbs before modern prosthetics, and even for some time after. They only really became associated with pirates because of how dangerous sailing could be, and so many seafarers went around with missing limbs. Though for a specific literary example of peglegs being associated with sailors, Captain Ahab from Moby-Dick is a really well known pegleg wearer. He wasn't a pirate, but he did help solidify the "salty captain" stereotype that pervades a great deal of nautical fiction. Also, I have to take some issue with your comment about Long John Silver's "boring crutch" considering at one point in the novel he uses it to break a man's spine by throwing it at him. That's pretty rad if you ask me.

    Treasure planet was awesome. A pity Disney dumped it before it was even in theatres. I also remember some old Anime about treasure Island. Silver was blonde there iirc.

    I feel like the final villain is either the Gorosei or Teach. Depends on which way Oda decides to take it of course but I think he'll go with the Gorosei. One Piece feels more like it's about changing the World Structure rather than beating One Man.
