In One Piece season 1 on Netflix, young pirate Monkey D. Luffy makes it his mission to find the legendary treasure, One Piece, and finally become the King of the Pirates. But he can’t go on this high-seas adventure alone. First, he has to assemble a pirate crew. The first person he manages to convince to join his crew is Roronoa Zoro.

Zoro is known as the Demon Pirate Hunter. He’s the most feared pirate hunter in the East Blue, and his goal is to become the world’s greatest swordsman, a goal stemming from a promise he made to his deceased childhood friend. But in order to achieve this goal, he has to defeat the person who already holds the prestigious title, Dracule Mihawk.

Spoilers ahead from One Piece season 1.

Although we see a young Mihawk in the first episode of the season, we’re not officially introduced to him until the fifth episode, and he’s much older then. After Vice-Admiral Garp gives Mihawk the task of capturing Luffy, Mihawk travels to the Baratie, an ocean-going restaurant, on a mission to find him. But before he can find Luffy, he runs into Luffy’s pirate crew. Zoro immediately recognizes who Mihawk is and challenges him to a duel to the death. Mihawk agrees to the duel, and their fight begins the next day.

But unfortunately for Zoro, he loses the battle and is left critically injured when Mihawk slices him in the chest with his sword. While Zoro lies on the ground, his deep wound bleeds out. But before passing out, he makes a promise to himself that he will never lose again. Does Zoro end up succumbing to his injuries? Find out below.

Does Zoro die in One Piece season 1 on Netflix?

No, Zoro does not die in the first season. If you read the manga the live-action series is based on, you’d already know that he lives. Luffy and the rest of the gang bring an unconscious Zoro back into the Baratie to get help. Chef Zeff stitches up Zoro’s wounds and uses an old seaman’s trick where he uses fish skin to stop the flow of blood from the wounds. This helps Zoro heal faster.

But Zeff isn’t completely sure that Zoro would make it. He tells the Straw Hat Pirates that Zoro lost a lot of blood, so it might still be too late for him even with the patching up. He continues on and tells them that the best thing they can do at the moment is continue to be there for Zoro while he’s unconscious. This is exactly what the Straw Hat Pirates do, and one day, Zoro finally wakes up. Now the Straw Hat Pirates have to go rescue Nami from out of Arlong’s clutches.
