Difficulty In One Piece Odyssey [Explained]

Learn all about One Piece Odyssey's difficulty & how you can increase it.

One Piece Odyssey is a pretty easy game, too easy, in fact. This has players wondering if there is any difficulty setting in One Piece Odyssey. The short answer is no; there is no difficulty setting in this game.

Key Highlights
  • One Piece Odyssey is very easy as there is no difficulty setting.
  • Since the game is very generous with experience points through Dramatic Scenes Battles, players can be very overpowered.
  • To make the game artificially harder, players can avoid the Dramatic Scenes Battles to gain fewer experience points.
  • They can also completely ignore the powerful equipment and accessories to nerf themselves further.
  • This is the only way to “increase” the difficulty in One Piece Odyssey.

Difficulty In One Piece Odyssey

Since One Piece Odyssey has no difficulty setting, players can steamroll through most of the game. If you want to make the game even easier for yourself, we recommend completing the conditions in Dramatic Scenes Battles. These battles give you a specific condition, such as killing the enemy in 1 turn.

When this condition is met, players will receive up to 10x more experience than usual. This can make your characters very overpowered. Combine that with good skills and powerful equipment, and you got yourself a smooth and clean run through the game.

Exploration also nets you money, powerful accessories, and experience points called Cube Fragments. All of these things ensure players have an easy time in this game.

Artificially Increasing Difficulty

While the easy difficulty is disappointing the diehard turn-based RPG fans, they can somewhat increase the difficulty by avoiding the conditions in Dramatic Scenes Battles. This will, in turn, give them fewer experience points and keep their levels a little bit normalized.

Using weaker skills for your characters and avoiding the accessories/equipment altogether can make the game harder for you. It is more of a challenge run, but other than this, there is no other way to increase the difficulty.

One Piece Odyssey was designed with complete accessibility in mind so any player can enjoy the world and characters of One Piece. It is more of a relaxing experience than a hardcore challenging game and should be enjoyed as such.
