"Before They Were Famous!" is a special Rare Recruit Rate Up event. In this event you have higher chances to recruit the "Notorius Trio" Luffy, Ace and Sabo event exclusive characters .

As usual, you can access this event through the Tavern.

This event lasts only 1 week and seems to come up once a year.

The event is widely considered to be one of Bandai's worst idea: few people care for those characters, either theme-wise, or ability (they are all relatively weak; only Kid Sabo has some niche utility). It is not recommended you spend any gems for the pulls, unless you really want them for your collection. Game-wise, they have very little utility.

Past event period:

Premiered: Aug.4 2015 (19:00) - Aug.11 2015 (18:59) PST

(during the premier event there was also a rate up for Straw Hat V1 5★ forms, Shanks and Ace)

2nd: May.10 2016 (19:00) - May.17 2016 (18:59) PST

During the 2nd event no other characters were affected by the rate up due to this event, though it coincided with the rate up for all QCK characters.

3rd: June.15 2017 (19:00) - June.19 2017 (18:59) PST

3rd event corresponded with rate up for Straw Hats, meaning that Luffy had a likely higher chance. Still no Kid Law

4th: Jan. 28 2018 (19:00) - Feb. 08 2018 (18:59) PST

The 4th event introduced kid versions of Boa Hancock, Rebecca, Law, Hina, Smoker and Tashigi.

Event Exclusive CharactersEdit

During this event you can recruit event exclusive characters, which you can't obtain in other ways. These exclusive characters are affected by rate up.
