With his giant fist, Luffy has managed to catapult his opponent through the walls of the bridge pier straight towards the sea. However, Lucci fortunately lands on one of the navy ships in the process. The marines stationed there are confused at first.
Secret tunnel to the Bridge of Hesitation: Zoro and Sanji run with the injured Sogeking towards the Bridge of Hesitation. The gunner hears water and imagines the horrible scenario when the tunnel floods. The other two actually think it’s strange, but run on anyway and are swept away by the water with Nami, Granny Kokoro with Chopper, Chimney and Gonbe running from a massive mass of water ahead of them. Zoro still tries to create a way out with a sword blow against the wall, but the tunnel walls are extremely strong to withstand the water pressure from outside.
Main Island of Enies Lobby: The marines and agents of the World Government continue to try to flee the island to escape the Buster Call, but there’s a problem: the sea train seems to be broken.
On a navy ship, a soldier asks Vice Admiral Doberman what they should do to recapture Nico Robin. However, the latter only replies that they don’t need to do anything, since this was Lucci’s mission and they would surely only hinder him. Their only mission, he says, is to destroy everything but the Bridge of Hesitation. Meanwhile, Lucci gets back up on the navy ship he landed on after Luffy’s attack. When the soldiers learn from their captain that he is Rob Lucci of the CP9, they are visibly surprised.
Shortly after, Doberman begins to tell of Lucci’s past. More than 15 years ago, 500 soldiers of a country were captured by pirates. The captain of the pirates demanded the throne of the country in exchange for the lives of their soldiers. However, only one boy had been sent by the world government to mingle with the pirates and go to the captured soldiers. However, contrary to his expectations, he did not save them, but unceremoniously killed them all, as they were responsible for the kingdom’s crisis in his eyes. The captain of the pirates was furious and horrified at the boy’s actions. The pirates attacked him, but the boy withstood all the attacks and took the captain’s head. The riot was ended by a 13-year-old CP9 agent who has five scars on his back in the shape of the World Government flag, Rob Lucci!
Using a gum-gum missile – still in Gear 3 – Luffy transports himself to the navy ship Lucci is on. The marines fire at the approaching Luffy, who doesn’t let it stop him and directs the air he previously directed into his stomach into his foot. This, like his hand just now, becomes huge and Luffy splits the naval ship with a gum-gum giant axe.
Lucci is able to dodge the strong attack by jumping on the mast and immediately sends a Rankyaku to Luffy, who however is able to avoid it as well. Without hesitation, the CP9 agent jumps off the mast, turns into a leopard and bites Luffy in the shoulder. The latter cries out in pain and fends off his adversary by directing the air from his foot into his stomach. Lucci jumps back onto the mast, but is immediately forced to jump off as Luffy attacks with a giant whip, destroying the mast. Lucci transforms back into a leopard man and again uses his Tobu Shigan “Bachi” attack, which Luffy is unable to dodge. Immediately after, he pops up behind Luffy, noting that his speed has decreased as his strength has increased, slams him into the already heavily damaged naval ship, and sends a Rankyaku Gaichou after him, splitting the ship once again. He himself subsequently keeps himself in the air with Geppou.
A marine informs Vice Admiral Onigumo on another ship that Rob Lucci of the CP9 and Straw Hat Luffy are having a tough fight. The latter wants to help the CP9 member and fire the ship they are fighting on. A soldier who wants to protest against this, since there are also some of their people on the ship, is shot down by Onigumo without hesitation and the ship is sunk shortly after.
