One Piece is so amazing!
More amazing than One Piece is the creator of the series Eiichiro Oda!
Most commonly known inspiration which Oda had for his series are like:
 -Dr. Kureha coming down riding a sleigh: Santa clause Grin
 -In the first arc, Alvida asking Coby who is the most beautiful lady on all seas: Snow white's step mother 
 -Usopp's long nose: Pinocchio
 - Crocodile: Captain Hook
 -Brook: The tale of "The Singing Bones"
 -Water 7 island: Venice
 
And much much more...
Here is a n incomplete list is found through little surfing on the net:
- Monkey D. Luffy characterized as Gokuh, being a "monkey" both in name and behavior.
- Usopp (in Kuro arc) also representing the tale of The Shepherd's boy and the Wolf.
- Brook also as Michael Jackson. (Black man becoming white. Zombie. The 45º move.)
- Fishmen and merfolk play the role of black people. Notice that no character is black. Not even the ones with "afro hair".
- The Davy Back Fight is reference to Davy Jones.
- Kizaru represents the corruption of justice. Chasing after something for unrighteous resons but

justifying it oficially as though it is a threat for people. Seen in his attitude of lying, saying that
something is terrifying and playing scared.
- Arabasta represents the Ancient Egypt.
- Whiskey Peak has architectonics of Caribbean small towns in the colonial period. Maybe due to the Grand Line representing The Caribbean Sea, and Whiskey Peak being the first island seen there.
- The Kuja Pirates, consisting of females exclusively, seem to have many similarities with the Greek Amazons.
- King Neptune is also named after the Roman god of the sea.
-There are three ancient weapons named after three mythical gods: Pluton, Poseidon, and Uranus. 

And there is a lot and lot of more stuffs! Huh
