The CP9 Mission Report, Part 14: “He Woke Up”. Rob Lucci has finally woken up and is sitting on his bed. He looks quite frazzled and pensive. At the open window next to the bed, Hattori sits and rejoices.
Sabaody Archipelago, Grove 1: Pirate captains Luffy, Eustass Kid, and Trafalgar Law continue to fight side-by-side against the Navy. Luffy admires the others’ crazy devil powers, while the Kid notes that Luffy’s is the weirdest.
The Marine soldiers see themselves as clearly outmatched, but want to hold out until Admiral Kizaru arrives. Law doesn’t want to wait that long, though. He throws the Marine soldier’s head, which he switched with a cannonball, back to the Marine soldiers. The latter complains of pain on his body (so he seems to still be connected to it) and warns of the circle Law is drawing. Law, however, reacts more quickly, reinstating his “Room” and cutting the Marine soldiers in half.
Meanwhile, Luffy has changed into Gear 3 and pumped the air into his left arm, which is now giant size. The Marine now wants to go for the weapons, but they are magnetically attracted to Eustass Kid. Kid forms a giant metal arm out of it. The three captains now attack the navy.
Everyone’s crews are now showing up. Sanji notes that they probably all have devil powers. Brook can’t believe his eyes, which is probably because he doesn’t have any. Meanwhile, Rayleigh is amused by how the Supernovae are doing.
The Navy interprets the scene to mean that with the crews now on the scene, the pirates are to begin their escape. The three World Nobles have been rescued, the order goes out for the mortars to fire on anything that doesn’t have devil fruit. The navy rallies once more.
In a final conversation before they split up, Luffy says he’s going to be the Pirate King, to which Law and the Kid bristle. Until now, they have always been laughed at for such statements. They agree to meet again in the New World.
Meanwhile, the captains’ crews fight the navy. Killer, Bepo and Sanji clear out the navy. Kid orders that it’s time to go.
Handsome … uh … Duval now draws attention to himself, and goes to pick up the Straw Hats. Luffy runs towards the Tobiuo Riders, right into Brook’s lullaby. Sanji’s kick wakes Luffy back up, though. Meanwhile, the marine soldiers threaten Duval. Robin saves Duval and crew via Nueve Fleurs, Twist. Rayleigh (loaded with Hatchan) and Franky (with Camie and Pappag) are sent ahead, while Usopp and Zoro keep the others at bay. Nami’s Thunder Tempo eventually defeats a bunch of Marine soldiers.
The slave of Rosward, the giant Jean Bart, is recruited by Trafalgar Law for his crew. He accepts the offer because Law saved him from the Tenryuubito. Law, however, honestly points out that half of the thanks goes to Luffy.
The Kid and his crew have already moved a good distance away from the battle and now give the signal to leave. Out of nowhere, however, Kid is attacked by a white ray, but it misses him. His crew is horrified, while Kid wonders what the Samurai of the Seas is doing here! Standing before him is Bartholomew Kuma!
