YMMV Thankfully, some members of the crew aren't this out of whack. This is the 75TH time! The Blazing Blade A character who has no idea where he's going, and tends to get lost easily. And not just the regular kind of lost either. They could get lost in a walk-in closet.
This person simply has No Sense Of Direction. A little like the Flying Dutchman , except that this character wanders not because of a curse but because he can't find where he's trying to go. Often becomes one of those Achievements in Ignorance when the character somehow arrives at the right place despite their utter inability to get there.
Also see Directionless Driver , when the character actively refuses navigation assistance. Contrast with The Navigator , someone who's skilled with directions. If the individual is lost because of the location itself being impossible to navigate, it may be a form of The Maze , Magical Mystery Doors , or an Eldritch Location.
Hilariously enough, it shows he didn't even know he had said bathroom. A series of radio commercials for a Southern California tire store had two characters trying to tour the world and constantly mixing up remote locations for more local ones — assuming they were in Ontario the Canadian province when they were actually in Ontario the California city , for example.
He's so predictably late that everyone schedules their meetings with him a week early to allow for a week of him finding his way. He's not only terrible at finding directions inside a single house, but also at knowing where to run towards in a race right at the starting point. This runs in his family and leads to Parental Abandonment as they can never manage to find their way home at the same time girl-Ranma was even able to claim she was a sister he had never met using this and a Wig, Dress, Accent.
Even one of his puppies suffers from this condition, although the dog mother doesn't seem to be affected for some reason. He seems to always either take the wrong direction when given the choice between three roads, one of which he's told is right and one of which he's told is wrong, he takes the third road , or take directions too literally when told to go "straight down the road" to the Seikan Tunnel from Hokkaido, he did just that — despite the fact the road curved and his route caused him to leap off of the road.
His absurd levels of stamina, which lets him run at top speed for literally hours or even days without stopping, as well as being able to plough right through everything in his path , makes this worse as he can cover distances far sooner than direction-givers might expect and, particularly after learning the Breaking Point , there's literally nothing that can force him to change directions.
Except that the signs were mistranslated, and written in Hiragana, it read "Nagasaki Kunchi", which is, according to Wiki, "the most famous festival in Nagasaki, Japan". In his first appearance, there's a snippet with people laughing when he says he walked to that location.
He's on a yacht. At one point, he goes the wrong direction immediately after being given directions. He once made a map describing how he found the item of the week. The map shows France, Africa, China, the dojo, and a red car. He even went the wrong direction from the starting line in a race. It was a three-legged race and he was tied to Ukyo who was going the right way. They still won by reaching the goal from the other side. He angsts a lot about being so far away from her, but the lyrics make it clear that while he thinks he's in the other end of Japan, he's probably in her backyard.
In the abridged chronicles , he's gone from having No Sense of Direction, to having No Sense of Direction and a stubborn refusal to ask for them. When he finally decides to ask, he thinks that "north" is "up. Numerous fanfics have him getting so badly lost he somehow manages to wander into other dimensions. Several of the Straw Hat pirates in One Piece , as pictured.
Roronoa Zoro pictured above, upper left , by far the worst, is prone to get lost easily. He'll take off in the opposite direction as soon as The Team sets out. When needing to go south, he once went in exactly the wrong direction despite being in the company of a bird whose head will only ever point to the south. When told to head north, he climbs the tallest building in the vicinity again, the "north is up" principle.
He can be quoted as having once said "It was on the right side of the map, so I just have to keep going right. Zoro gets lost in a situation where it should've been impossible like when Nami outright tells him to follow her in the CP9 arc , and often blames the others for "getting lost". Hilariously seen in a fan video.
To the tune of Yakety Sax , for added points. The absolute worst example has to be at Enies Lobby. He gets lost walking to a set of stairs 20 feet in front of him. He blames Nami's bad directions. Chopper pictured above, upper right responded by offering to make Zoro a cure for hopeless idiocy. Post-time skip, when the crew was reuniting on Sabaody Archipelago, Zoro was first one there and is incredibly smug about it though it was thanks to Perona's help. Though played straight back into position when he decides to go fishing and gets on a pirate ship as well.
He blames destiny and cuts the ship in half. He has, on the other hand, no trouble finding someone when he wants to get away from them, like in a post-Enies Lobby filler episode when he's wearing an embarrassing shirt he doesn't want to be seen in, and ends up running into everyone in the crew when trying to avoid them.
He's been called a fantasista roughly, calling someone a "daydreamer" in a derogatory fashion twice. Not to mention the fact that in the G8 filler arc, the marines have set up an ambush at one end of a straight hallway and it doesn't have any offshoots from it. Zoro was leading the crew down that hallway towards the end where the marines set up the ambush, but they were being followed by a separate bunch of marines. Somehow the marines that were chasing Zoro and the crew got to the ambush before the Straw Hats did.
It is this event that proves Zoro can get lost in a straight hallway. Subverted in one instance. Yes, Zoro did get lost, but on this occasion it was not the fault of his poor sense of direction. The miniature islands of the Shabaody Archipelago have numbers on giant trees to act as a guide.
Zoro recognized this and assumed he wouldn't get lost so long as he remembered to look for tree number 1. The number was actually 41, but his view of it was obscured. Luffy pictured above, bottom of image , thinks the best way to find "south" is to head in the direction it's warmest. It's so bad that in the anime version, even the narrator gives up on them. Chopper, who is also on the page picture, does not have a bad sense of direction per se his is probably quite average.
He is just very fearful, and as the forest the four characters were traversing was full of dangerous enemies, he got so scared that he just ran off without noticing where he was going. In Anne Happy , Hibiki has one of the worst senses of direction ever. On several occasions people have pointed out a destination that's in her sight, and she thanks them, turns around and runs in the opposite direction; she then later blames the people who gave her directions for getting her lost.
She always gives herself at least three hours to get to school on account of this. In B Gata H Kei , Miyano Mayu's lack of a sense of direction has reached impossible levels, to the point that at one point Kanejo opens a secret room protected by numerous barriers which only she can open, and Mayu walks out from inside this room no one could even know about crying and wondering how she got so lost.
Ran Mouri in Detective Conan. Combine that with some bad luck , and the kid often ends up in trouble. Dominic from Eureka Seven has a working sense of direction, but he can't read a map for the life of him. He'll find his intended destination if he isn't relying on a map at all. Shou's mother from Father and Son is known for getting lost quite a bit.
She apparently has no way of knowing where she is or how to get back. When he meets his uncle his mother's brother , he learns that getting lost runs in the family. Hatsuharu in Fruits Basket gets lost a great deal.
So much that whenever he has to go to the Sohma main estate for any parties, the family delivers him the invitation days before they do the same to the others so he won't arrive late.
In the anime adaptation of Granblue Fantasy , Gran gets the party lost repeatedly on their way to ruins in episode 8. Vyrn explains that he's always been like this and even occasionally got lost in Zinkenstill. In Is the Order a Rabbit?
She gets so lost in fact that when Rize is walking straight to her school, Cocoa somehow walks past her several times heading in the opposite direction at a leisurely pace. After the third time she finds Cocoa in front of her still heading the other way, Rize starts to wonder if she's in some sort of loop. He never seems to mind, even sleeping outside or under bridges without complaint when he can't find his way to lodging. There is also Sendo Takeshi, who seems to get lost despite being from Japan admittedly a different region from Ippo.
He relies on cats to tell him where to go and sometimes just wanders until he finds what he is looking for. At one point he ran right past a boxing gym he had been to on several occasions. Hayate the Combat Butler Isumi seems to be magnetized towards Nagi's house when she's not lost altogether. Once she ended up trying to take a train to Rio de Janeiro and somehow wound up on DenLiner.
She also once left her house in Tokyo and ended up in Greece Then she actually broke down in tears when she arrived somewhere on time for about the first time ever. Nagi also has this, although the normal version, rather then epic levels like Isumi.
It's even on her character sheet! However, between Hayate, Maria and the SP's If she is left alone, she gets lost in short order. In the beginning of the Sinnoh arc, Dawn has no clue how to get to the Sandgem Town lab and so she runs into Professor Rowan by complete accident. Her Piplup is even worse, though it may run in its evolution line Team Twerp cannot help but get completely lost on too many occasions to count.
It gets ridiculous when you realize that at some point in their journey throughout the Advanced Generation series, and halfway through the Diamond and Pearl series , they even had their universe's equivalent of a GPS. In a later episode, she arrives to their meeting several minutes late because she got lost too.
She's nowhere as bad as Kintarou, though.
