Syrup Village Arc Arlong Park Arc

The Baratie Arc is the fourth story arc in the East Blue Saga of the manga and anime One Piece. The Straw Hats meet Johnny and Yosaku, who direct them to the restaurant ship Baratie, a sort of "floating oasis" in the middle of the ocean where they meet Sanji. However, a pirate admiral named Don Krieg sets his sights on the Baratie as a replacement for his devastated fleet, and the restaurant soon comes under siege.


Of Bounty Hunters, Cooks and PiratesEdit

The arc begins with the Straw Hats (Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami and the newly joined Usopp) checking out their new pirate ship as well as designing a Jolly Roger for it. As a test of the ship's capabilities, Luffy and Usopp test out one of the cannons on board by shooting at a rock formation. However, unbeknownst to them, two pirate hunters happen to be on said rock and one of them attacks the ship in retaliation. Luffy fights him, but Zoro points him out to be a friend of his. It is here the Straw Hat Pirates meet Johnny and Yosaku, who were on the rock that was shot at. After the Straw Hats apologize and Nami cures Yosaku of his scurvy, the crew realizes that they are going to need a cook for the ship to maintain the healthy quality of their food stores before they can go to the Grand Line. To repay the favor for helping them, Johnny and Yosaku tell the crew of a floating restaurant in the middle of the ocean where they might find a cook and then help navigate the crew to said restaurant, the Baratie.

Sanji Gives Gin Food

Sanji giving a starving Gin food.

As soon as they get there the group runs into trouble with a Marine Lieutenant, Fullbody. In the scuffle between the two, Luffy accidentally redirects a cannonball into the Baratie's roof. While Luffy tries to make a deal with the captain, head chef and owner of the ship, Zeff, to pay for the damages caused to the roof, we meet Sanji, the assistant chef. Sanji has an encounter with Fullbody as well, and almost kills Fullbody for insulting the Baratie's food. However, an even bigger incident occurs when a pirate named Gin, comes onto the ship demanding food (he was being detained by Fullbody, because he is a member of Don Krieg's armada). Although denied food, beaten and thrown out of the restaurant by the crew, Sanji secretly serves the man a savory meal, saving Gin from starvation. Despite this act of kindness, when Gin leaves and returns to his ship, he tells Don Krieg about the Baratie. After hearing about the ship, Don Krieg comes to believe that taking over the Baratie is a key step in resurrecting his fleet.

Eventually Krieg comes to the restaurant under the pretense that he will not hurt anyone if he receives some food. Of course, Krieg attacks the cooks onboard and claims the Baratie as his own, since his original ship and his entire fleet were destroyed seven days into the Grand Line by a mysterious figure. Just as important, his crew is on the verge of death from starvation. Surprisingly, Zeff gives a sack of food to Krieg and warns his cooks about the upcoming battle. The Baratie raises the battle fins, which protect the restaurant part of the Baratie, and the cooks and the Krieg Pirates begin to fight.

The Ultimate Armada and the Ultimate SwordsmanEdit

Mihawk Defeats Zoro

Mihawk defeats Zoro.

In the midst of the battle, Luffy (who has been working as "Chore Boy" to pay off the damages to the roof) and the other male Straw Hat members try to get the Going Merry away from the battle. Only then do they realize that Nami double crossed them and stole their ship and treasure. Usopp, Johnny and Yosaku prepare to go after her. However, their plans are brought to a halt when Krieg's galleon is suddenly sliced in half. Through the wreckage of the ship sails the mysterious figure that Zoro instantly recognizes as Dracule "Hawk-Eyes" Mihawk, one of the Shichibukai, and the best swordsman in the world. Zoro decides to try and defeat Mihawk to gain the title of best swordsman in the world, but is clearly outmatched by Mihawk's strength.

However, Zoro impresses Mihawk with his courage and honor. As a result, Mihawk spares Zoro's life (so that he can become a better swordsman and that they may battle again). After the loss, Zoro vows never to lose again before setting off with the other Straw Hats to go after Nami while Luffy stays behind to help the Baratie with Zeff accepting Luffy's request for his debt to be repaid as the reward for Luffy's assistance against the Krieg Pirates. With that Mihawk disappears and Krieg directs his attention back to the Baratie.

The Chef's Battles, the Chore Boy's BattlesEdit

Luffy Breaks Krieg's Armor

Luffy breaks Krieg's armor.

The cooks find that Krieg's pirates are not pushovers and the battle is not going well for the Baratie's cooks, at least until Sanji joins the fray. However, the tide turns back in Krieg's favor when his second mate, Iron Wall Pearl arrives. At first Sanji has the upper hand, but after Pearl almost burns down the ship, Gin is forced to hold Zeff at gunpoint to keep Sanji from fighting back and Pearl thrashes Sanji around. It is during this point we learn about Sanji's past. Surprisingly, Gin saves Sanji from Pearl, claiming he wanted to kill the cook. The two fight briefly, but with Sanji still injured from his fight with Pearl, Gin gains the upper hand. However, Gin cannot bring himself to kill Sanji, which makes Krieg furious. As a result, he tries to kill Gin with a poison gas grenade known as MH5. Gin barely survives. This act upsets Luffy, and he attacks Krieg. What follows is a long fight on the wreckage of Krieg's ship.

Krieg uses everything in his armor's arsenal to kill Luffy. However, Luffy counters and powers though each weapon, finally finishing off Krieg by slamming him into the side of the Baratie with his legs (although Krieg would not stay down until a final punch in the gut by Gin stops him in his tracks). However, Krieg's final attack with his iron net sends Luffy into the ocean. Sanji saves Luffy from the ocean and Gin and the rest of Krieg's pirates sail away on a small dingy.

Sanji Thanks Zeff

Sanji tearfully thanking Zeff as he leaves with Luffy.

In the final act of the arc, Zeff and his cooks try to persuade Sanji to leave by telling him a soup he cooked tasted awful. Sanji almost falls for it but then over hears them when they actually say it taste delicious. Although he remembers his dream of the All Blue and finally agrees to join Luffy's crew. Just as he makes his decision, Yosaku comes back (traveling on a panda shark) and warns Luffy that Nami headed towards a dangerous island. Zeff and the Baratie cooks all give Sanji a tearful send off before he, Luffy, and Yosaku head out to catch up with the others.

Anime and Manga DifferencesEdit

  • In the manga, when Mihawk was mentioned by Gin and Zeff, the chefs had a recollection of a customer they once had called Drunk Eyes (chapter 49), which turns out to not be the "Hawk-Eyes" that Johnny was referring to earlier (chapter 42). This confusion wasn't mentioned in the anime, and Drunk Eyes was left out.
  • In the manga, when Fullbody noticed that Johnny and Yosaku were on the ship and insulted them, Johnny and Yosaku attempted to attack him but got beaten up instead, with Johnny's wanted posters falling on the Going Merry's deck. In the anime, Johnny got angry at the insult and simply threw out some wanted posters on the deck.[1]
  • In the manga when the Straw Hats were fired upon by the marines, Luffy deflected it with a simple Gomu Gomu no Balloon. In the anime, he invented a new technique called the Gomu Gomu no Pachinko.
  • In the manga, Lines the marine is not shown after being shot by Gin, and is presumed to be dead. In the anime, he can be seen crawling out of the Baratie alongside Fullbody.
  • In the manga, Gin accepts Sanji's fried rice almost immediately. In the anime, he initially rejects it out of pride, and Sanji has to convince him to eat it.
  • In the manga, Luffy stays "employed" at the Baratie for two days before Don Krieg arrives. In the anime, it is four days.
  • In the manga, when Sanji announces his intention to cook for the rest of Don Krieg's men, the rest of the Baratie's cooks point pistols at him. In the anime, the cooks instead point enormous kitchen utensils, such as forks and knives, at Sanji.[2]
  • During the battle against Don Krieg, in the manga Krieg at first feinted using the MH5 by using a shuriken bomb instead. This was not shown in the anime.
  • In the manga, during the battle against Don Krieg, when Gin subdued Zeff, he did it by breaking the peg leg and pointing a gun at him. In the anime, Gin simply knocked over Zeff and pointed the gun at him.
  • In the flashback in the manga, Zeff lost his leg by eating it. In the anime, he lost his leg by cutting it off when he was caught in some sinking ship debris.[3]
  • The amount of time Sanji and Zeff stay shipwrecked on the island is shorter in the anime which is marked with a chalk for 47 days instead of the caption, stating it was 85 days. Also in the manga, a passing ship's crew fails to hear Sanji's cries the first time it came around before coming back several months later. This is skipped in the anime and instead they are immediately rescued when it comes by on the same day Sanji learned that Zeff lost his leg (which was 15 days earlier in the manga).[4]
  • Once Zeff and Sanji start the Baratie, Sanji picks up smoking and claims that "he's a man now". This was cut out of the anime as not to tell viewers smoking equals maturity.
  • In the manga, just as Zoro is preparing to battle Mihawk, at the scene with the Going Merry, Nami sadly hopes that she will get to see her new friends again and is happy that she will soon be free before she sadly calls out to Bell-mère. In the anime, this scene is instead moved to after Luffy defeated Don Krieg.[5]

4Kids EditsEdit

  • Sanji is given a Brooklyn accent, and his cigarettes are changed permanently throughout the series into red lollipops.
  • Don Krieg's nail gun is changed to poison suction cups. All blood is also removed from the fight.
  • Pearl is given a stereotypical surfer voice.
  • Kuina's death was changed to her being hurt and unable to fight with a sword again.
  • Mihawk's sword hilt is shortened because it looks too much like a cross, the same goes for his knife.

Story ImpactEdit

  • Fullbody is introduced, as well as Johnny and Yosaku.
  • Usopp's cannon wielding earns him his role as sniper.
  • Nami's betrayal shows her hidden nature and greater hint toward her past and her relationship to the fishman pirate Arlong and his crew. Her obsession with looking over Johnny and Yosaku's copy of Arlong's wanted poster would help the two suspect a connection between Nami and Arlong, which allowed them to successfully predict Nami's destination.
  • Most importantly the crew gets their cook Sanji, who is considered their third strongest fighter.
  • Mihawk is also introduced, as well as the Shichibukai as a group (mentioned, but no individual information). Zoro loses his duel and vows never to lose again, leaving him with his first permanent battle scar and his two unnamed swords are destroyed, which would lead him to buy new ones two story arcs later in the Loguetown Arc.
