The memory thief, in the form of a seahorse, stole the villagers’ memories. Now he has Zoro in his power. He also wants to absorb his memory, and Luffy’s gang is also threatened by him. Visions from their past appear in fragments during the fight and confuse them. The seahorse becomes a dragon because he briefly manages to absorb the memories of the entire Straw Hat Pirates. Through Luffy’s victory over the dragon, the villagers get their memories back. But unfortunately, instead of seeing the pirate gang as heroes, they see them as the evildoers and drive them out of their village. The gang manages to get onto their ship and continue their search for the treasure.
