One Piece Filler List

Most accurate One Piece Filler List to skip according to One Piece Fandom and Reddit!

Looking for a list of One Piece fillers? You’ve come to the right place! In this guide, we will provide you with a comprehensive list of all the One Piece filler & canon episodes from every arc.

The “One Piece” series is all about Monkey D. Luffy, a young boy who dreams of becoming the King of the Pirates. He and his Straw Hat Pirates travel the world in search of the legendary treasure known as One Piece. Along the way, they make new friends and enemies, and discover the secrets of the Grand Line. The series has been going on for over 20 years, and is still ongoing.

The creator, Eiichiro Oda, has said that he plans to end the series when Luffy finally becomes the Pirate King. So far, the series has been a huge success, both in Japan and overseas. It is one of the most popular manga series of all time, and has sold over 430 million copies.

Why does One Piece contain fillers?

The animation for One Piece is based on the manga chapters. Sometimes there are delays in the manga chapter, or the anime series is catching up too quickly, in those cases the producer Toei Animation can fill in the gap with non-canon (non manga related) animation. Unfortunately fillers are essential to keep the anime running. 

In comparison with Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, One Piece has a very low percentage of fillers. There’s no denying that Naruto has a lot more filler episodes than One Piece. In fact, according to one estimate, Naruto has nearly triple the amount of filler episodes as One Piece. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as some of the filler episodes are actually quite good. However, it does mean that if you’re trying to marathon Naruto, you’re going to have to sit through a lot more filler than you would with One Piece.

We have created a comprehensive guide to list which episodes are from the manga (canon) and which episodes are made up to fill the gap (filler episodes). Research has been done for every single episode and arc, by using reliable sources from Reddit and One Piece Fandom. According to Reddit users it was very hard to find a complete list with the right information, because for example is wrongly labeling some episodes as filler instead of canon.

For every arc/season we have added a percentage of fillers, so you can decide if you want to watch or skip the episodes within that arc.

Canon episodes

Before we go in-depth for each separate arcs, the canon episodes of “One Piece” are Episode(s): 1-49, 52-55, 61-97, 100, 103-135, 144-195, 207-212, 217-219, 226-290, 293-302, 304-316, 320-325, 337-381, 385-405, 408-425, 430-491, 493-496, 500-505, 507-541, 543-574, 579-589, 591-625, 629-747, 751-774, 783-894, 897-906, 908 up to 1020

The above episode numbers are taken directly from the manga and are all written by the One Piece author. The anime has adapted these episodes into its own continuity, so there are some differences between the two versions. For example, in the manga, the Straw Hats visit Sky Island before going to Water 7, while in the anime they visit Sky Island after Water 7.

The story of One Piece is centered around a young pirate named Monkey D. Luffy who dreams of becoming the King of the Pirates. One day, he eats a Devil Fruit which gives him the power to stretch like rubber. This power makes him unable to swim, but he is determined to find the legendary treasure, One Piece, and become the King of the Pirates. Along the way, he meets many friends and enemies, and together they go on many adventures.
