As a child, Oda was inspired by Vikings and aspired to become a manga artist. As a child, he submitted a character named Pandaman for Yudetamago's classic wrestling manga Kinnikuman, who was not only used in a chapter of the manga but would later return as a recurring cameo character in Oda's own works. At the age of 17, he submitted his work "Wanted" and won several awards. At the age of 19, he worked as an assistant to Watsuki Nobuhiro on the manga Rurouni Kenshin. He has also worked under Kaitani Shinobu. During this time, he drew two pirate-themed one-shot stories, called "Romance Dawn". In 1997, One Piece appeared for the first time in the magazine Shonen Jump and promptly became one of the most popular manga in Japan. His biggest influence is Toriyama Akira, creator of Dragon Ball and Dr. Slump. They have also made a one-shot called Cross Epoch, a crossover containing characters from both Dragon Ball and One Piece. He is married to Chiaki Inaba, who had played Nami during Jump Festa One Piece stage performances.

Eiichiro Oda is friends with Shimabukuro Mitsutoshi, the author of Toriko.

EJIRI Tatsuma, ANDOU Ei and Ikezawa Haruto were his assistants.
