...well, I think this is an amusingly appropriate time to flip last strip's storytime on its head. Let's hear about times someone in your party rejected assistance/advice on an encounter, and it completely fucked them over in the end?

"Don't split the group!"

I thought I was being smart when I went against the common creed and kept myself from being captured alongside the rest of the part. Instead, the "boss" for the encounter decided to hunt me down himself. After a kick to the groin that - due to an in-game mechanic - was able to improbably break through his armor in that region, I ended up sacrificing this character so that my other character could take the kill shot.

Which in hindsight was excessive; at least before the kick, the GM might have just send my character to wherever the others were being held. For some reason, I had it in my head that it would get me killed to be captured. Oops. XP

"For some reason, I had it in my head that it would get me killed to be captured."

It's just PC mentality. HP 0 = Death. Even when it leads to a capture scene, which explicitly exist to give the PCs a chance to live, we would do anything to avoid that precious number dropping to 0.

Well, except this wasn't a D&D game so the mechanic was a bit different. Same difference; if you are incapacitated and the enemy should logically do you in, the GM has to either go through with it or undermine the element of risk in the campaign.

That's the thing i like about One Piece. and good Shonen in general. heck, i'd even say any good superpower show in general.
There is no useless power, only unimaginative characters (often a extension of a unimaginative writer). The awesome thing in OP is that character with a power that sound not really impressive like rubber, or mochi can make clever use of their power to make it damn useful and use it in combat to striking effect.
A show where a character have a obviousely cool power like telepathy, or shooting laser beam, and the change in it is how powerful a telepath is or how big the laser? that's one thing. But a show where the character exploit differents aspects of their power, find new way of making them more effective... That's what make it impressive (of course i don't say that power like telepathy or laser beam are not interesting, it depend on how the writer handle them).

That's my main problem with some comic book, tons of characters with suposedely lames powers, but you just kept thinking "SO MANY POSSIBILITY !!" but the writers kill the character unceremoniousely or change/remove the power whithout ever thinking of it.
