Although Uta’s corpse was not shown, the end of the One Piece Film: Red, despite being ambiguous, strongly implies that Uta is dead. Through the mournful expressions of Shanks, Luffy, and the entire crew as they gathered around without Uta, including the presence of a casket with a flag aboard the Red Force, it is safe to say that Uta died in One Piece: Red.
Following its release in Japan on August 6, 2022, One Piece Film: Red has been widely praised by fans as the best movie in the franchise. The film features several beloved characters and has been heavily promoted in the manga and anime by Oda himself, leading to its international recognition.
With the movie now available to a wider audience, more and more fans enjoy this epic addition to the franchise and share their glowing reviews online, from professional review sites like RottenTomatoes to social media platforms such as Twitter and Reddit.
Despite the overall satisfaction with One Piece Film: Red, some fans have expressed confusion over the ambiguous fate of Uta at the end of the film. While her story does come to a definitive conclusion in the final moments, the fact that her body is not shown has led to speculation among fans that she might still be alive or in a coma.
What Happened to Uta One Piece?
In the One Piece Film: Red, Uta sacrifices herself by refusing Shanks’s medicine, choosing instead to stay awake to free citizens from her virtual world and escape the influence of Tot Musica. She dies in the end due to the mushroom she ate to stay awake.
The movie revolves around Uta, who is introduced as a popular singer and is eventually revealed to be Luffy’s childhood friend and Shanks’s daughter. She becomes the antagonist after realizing Luffy’s association with a pirate crew and traps him and other pirates in a fictional reality created by her Sing-Sing Fruit.
Uta’s plan involves eating Wake-shrooms, which allows one to stay awake indefinitely but comes at the cost of their life once they stop eating them. Shanks offers her medicine to nullify the cost, but she rejects it to sing and free everyone from the Sing-Sing Fruit’s world. In the end, Uta dies, as confirmed by the screenwriter but not necessarily by the manga creator Eiichiro Oda. However, since the One Piece franchise often fakes deaths, Uta’s fate remains uncertain until a dead body is seen.
The ambiguity surrounding Uta’s fate at the end of the movie has sparked discussions and theories among fans, with some hoping for her eventual return in the franchise. However, without concrete evidence or confirmation from Oda, it remains unclear whether she will make a comeback.
Who Is Uta In One Piece?
Uta is the main antagonist in the One Piece Film: Red, as well as a supporting character in Uta’s Past Arc of the anime. She is known as the world’s most famous Diva and a beloved pop idol with an otherworldly voice in the One Piece universe. As a child, she was friends with Luffy in Foosha Village before she was dropped off at Elegia, where she was partially raised by Gordon.
Despite being revealed to be the daughter of Red-Haired Shanks, Uta is not blood-related to him, as Shanks and his crew found her as an infant inside a treasure chest. Shanks chooses to raise her as his own daughter, and he makes it clear throughout the movie that he considers Uta to be his daughter, regardless of blood.
Uta possesses the Uta Uta no Mi, or the Sing-Sing Fruit, which allows her to transport other people’s consciousness into a different world through the use of a song. However, it also renders her unable to swim, which is a common side effect of Devil Fruits.
