In One Piece Treasure Cruise, most characters have a special move that can be activated after a certain cooldown. Unfortunately, for some units, it can take 25 turns or more for the special move to charge up. This is why it is crucial to power up specials in OPTC, as specials can now be used more often.
In One Piece Treasure Cruise, Manuals are an in-game item, which increases a specials level with a 12.5% chance. Each character in One Piece Treasure Cruise has its own Manual, so Manuals from other characters don’t increase the characters’ special level. Manuals can be obtained inside of story stages, Clashes, and Colosseums.
Besides regular Manuals (aka Skillbooks), a player can also obtain Almighty Manuals. This specific type of manual is universal, so it can be used on any character, making it quite valuable. Use Almighty Manuals only on characters who are hard to acquire regular character copies/manuals for (limited & legend characters).

To get the most out of each Manual in OPTC, it is highly recommended to save up all obtained manuals until the 2x Special Up event appears. Usually, this event drops once per month and lasts for a few days, so all players get the chance to level their character’s specials. PS: Manuals also give a little amount of Exp, but there are faster ways to level up characters in OPTC.
