Um, didn't you make a mistake? You switched Shanks and Gildarts nicknames. :/

Why you label shanks as gildarts and gildarts as shanks?

Similarities:
Red Hair
Total Badass
Most fearsome of their series
Role model to the hero of their series
Missing an arm
And can Scare the crap out of you to the abyss and back

Way too similar! :icontuzkiflailplz:
And let's not also forget the resemblance of Gajeel and Monkey D. Dragon.
I watch both Fairy Tail and One Piece but I'm very much a bigger fan of OP, and seeing OP characters getting somehow "ripped off", makes me a bit frustrated. It would be better if Mashima-sensei kept his character basis at a minimum.

i know that the man that is doing the FT is the right hand of echiro oda the creator of the moste amazing anime that i have seen so they probabbly help each other and in other words the personallty of some characters from FT and OP have some similaritis like and they have that childis comedy both of them and its nice but still one piece ruls the only thing that was better in FT are the soundtraks they are really good

I saw this yesterday when I looked at a OP video and was like "What...? What is Gildarts doing in OP?" and then realized it wasn't him. xD

characters of one piece and fairy tail:
Luffy = Natsu
Nami = Lucy
Chopper = Happy
Franky = Elfman
Zoro = Erza (or Cana)
Sanji = Loke/Leo
Shanks = Guildarts
they are too alike...

I'm calling it:
One Piece and Fairy Tale happen in parallel worlds.

I don't really think so. The fairy tail world will break under the pressure the one piece world gives off.

Hiro Mashima uses the basic design of a few characters from other Manga. Loki for example looks a lot like Ichigo, before it was revealed he was a spirit of the zodiac. Gildarts looks a lot like Shanks. I'm sure there is more, but I just haven't connected them yet.

Still, it's only the basic design, cause there is still differences. For example, Shanks has wavy red hair, and is a lot more muscular, with a much bigger neck, while Gildarts has slicked back orange hair, and a smaller muscular structure, though not by much.

It's true both lost their left arms, but Gildarts also lost his left leg to the same creature he lost his arm too. So, while similar, they are different.

Personally, I love both One Piece and Fairy Tail, and have been a fan of One Piece for much longer then Fairy Tail, but I still don't see the big fuss about borrowing the basic designs for characters.

At least Gildarts doesn't have scars on his left eye. ^^ This is amazing and kinda shocking, I didn't even realise it until now. But they are both good (and handsome) characters.

Guildarts was made by Machima to look like shanks, its a "tribute" to the character. Its intentional that they look so similar, they both share red head, both have the same beard, both miss left arm, both in their early 40s. Everyone should know this.

Fairy Tail is a such a knock-off of One Piece..

my friend said that luffy is a ripp-off of natsu..

and i regret i didn't smack her face on the wall :pissedoff::pissedoff::pissedoff::pissedoff:

no no no..
tch tch my friend, FT was create and own by mashima hiro. while OP is eiichiro oda's.

oda is not mashimo and mashimo is not oda. hence they're completely two DIFFERENT people. :ahoy:

i read fairy tail waaay before one piece, hell i read bleach, naruto, fma, eyeshield 21 and lots other shounen manga before i tried reading/watching OP last year. got hooked since then.

i love fairy tail at the moment but somehow got bored with it. then my bro introduced me too OP. i thought that the mangaka 4 OP and FT was the same person coz the art was so alike and they also got these super power things too. then when i took a second look on them, i'm certain that FT is nothing OP got more originality in them. FT is not near enough.

i still read them tho', hoping it would somehow back to their epicness when i first hooked with it. hopefully..

aQiel Featured By Owner May 31, 2012
it is fun..i love erza when she showed up but the story got a little off with the whole nakama thing. and a bit too much fan-service (yep i got a little problem with that, don't ask me..)

we'll just wait and see 4 that moment of miracle to come..:ahoy:

Futuretabs Featured By Owner May 31, 2012
yeah thats right ._. they have power of ''friendship'' bull especially natsu.. and especially the osts, the fan service got a little crazy. but even in the recent episodes, mashima is making erza and lucy dress like sluts. honestly, im a little dissapointed...

Gildarts really resembles Shanks ~ when i first saw Gildarts, I only think of Shanks, lolz~
I love both of them and both manga/anime ~
however, to me, one Piece is the best ~ xD
