In One Piece Odyssey, the characters will have distinct attributes. This way, short and long-range attack strategies will be free for players to choose from. Luffy will rely on physical hits as he throws his punches, while Nami and Usopp will use their ranged weapons to deliver damage to opponents.

In the middle of the action, dramatic scenes can occur that deliver a powerful buff to the members present. When the pirates are low on HP, an aid to recover their health will appear as an option. Members can also use Bond Arts, which are combination attacks among them.
