Chopper questions (Warning: might contain spoilers)

Not sure if anything in here might end up being a spoiler, so you've been warned.

What I'm wondering is about several things dealing with Chopper.

1. First off, his hat. That's a felt hat, right? If not, what is it? Well, besides a red tophat.
2. If he was to replace it, what kind of hat would it be?
3. His horn will eventually heal itself so that he doesn't need that metal brace, right?
4. He's still technically a "young" reindeer, so being young, how long till he's considered an adult reindeer and can grow up bigger? Or has his devil's fruit kinda put the kabosh on that happening?
5. How big will the "Adult" chopper be?
6. If his main form is as a reindeer, why does he slip so readily into that half reindeer, half human form so easily? Every time I've seen him in trouble and he gets knocked out or looses his transformation he falls back to that one every time?
7. Why the blue nose?

These may sound like stupid questions, but chopper is my favorite reindeer and I didn't see any of these answered in any of the FAQ threads (at least not directly that I found). Any info would be welcome. I'm sure I'll have more questions later.

Let me take a crack at it.
1. Don't know what felt hat is. Just know it's A gift from Dr. hiluluk. That's why it's special to Chopper
2. It's special to Chopper so he won't replace it. Like Luffy hat, if damage ask Nami to fix it.
3.It been 1-2 yr and it haven't heal. SO best bet is it won't. And the metal brace make him look more unique and wicked.
4.Chopper did grow up bigger in his reindeer form. You could tell from the flashback and the reindeer Chopper in Arabasta.
5.His adult form will be like another reindeer.
6.Whoever eat a Zoan type, retain most of their original form while taking in few change from the fruit. Therefore, Chopper is a reindeer so his appear remain a reindeer while he could talk human language and walk on 2 leg. So, that is why his main form won't be a reindeer on 4 legs. Don't know why his main form remain small.
7.B/c Rudolph took the color red already.

Confusing. Yes I know.

I think he slips into the half reindeer-half human form so easily because it allows him two advatages: One, his size. In a battle, he can be easily missed/underestimated because he is so small. Two, his brains. It isnt called Brain Point because he is dyslexic. Or perhaps he feels that he could not fit in as a reindeer nor as a man, so he wants to take the best of both qualities or something.

maybe because in that form he can be a better doctor. ud have to be gentle, but u're gonna need arms right? Also, it's probably based on wat they feel the most comfortable in. Zoan fruit users tat is. Some may feel more comfortable in a different form, etc.

blue nose? he probably got the idea from adolf, i mean rudolf. (oooo bad joke)

Blue noses are not normal at all. He was an outcast from other Reindeer for having a blue nose, don't forget. It's freakish!! Somehow! Which is news to me, since I didn't think Reindeer were naturally cognitave enough to be exclusive due to a blue nose. =)

Ya know, something has been in the back of my mind ever since they first introduced Chopper as a fighter and I've left it alone for a while but with recent occurances in the manga I gotta wonder, will any other Zoan users eat a Rumble Ball?

I know, it doesn't seem that big an issue, but it's something Oda has been priming us with ever since the idea was brought up. Hell, you could set an entire mini-story around the idea...

I doubt it, the rumble ball is Chopper's invention. For someone else to obtain it, they'd more than likely have to steal it, or the formula to make it from Chopper.

But if you're asking if someone else will acquire different forms with their zoan ability like Chopper then that's entirely possible. Afterall, we've already seen it happen with Rob Lucci.

Maybe Kuma may have sent Chopper to a place of unknown narcotic plants to experiment with.

yeah he needs new forms or a way to make the effect longer. or maybe achieve control of his massive beast form.
but then that might lose the dramatic effect of don't eat too many balls

Chopper seems very resolved to get stronger and to advance his medical knowledge last time we saw him, and I was thinking of ways he could improve.

A new, advanced Rumble Ball might be what most expect, but I think it'd be pretty cool if he'd master the Life Return technique he saw Kumadori use. Both Lucci and Kumadori only used Life Return to alter their bulk but perhaps with higher proficiency with the technique, one can increase/decrease more drastically in size...
Combining that with controlling his Awakaned Zoan form (if Monster Point indeed is his awakaned form) and he'd be a good match for Sanjuan Wolf.

Probably strong enough to bring down tougher opponents than Kumadori if he could control it, which will probably happen. His Rumble Balls will likely last longer, too.

There's no telling how it would affect a non-Zoan.

Just started watching the anime and I have to say that Chopper is the DAMN CUTEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN. (Is he played by the same VA as Konohamaru kun in Naruto?) Seriously, he needs his own spinoff series.

Chopper is not as young as he looks. His full human form is that of a full grown jock and his reindeer form is that of a full grown reindeer. He's supposed to be 15 but he looks like a linebacker.
