3. Chopper doesn’t know what he is

6. Chopper has the lowest bounty among the Topi Jerami
Chopper has the lowest bounty in the entire One Piece series, with only 50 Beli before timeskip and 100 Berry after timeskip. It is because people regarded him as a pet rather than a full-fledged member of the Topi Jerami.
