The battle between the rebels and royal guards is about to begin with each side getting ready to fight one another as the rebels are just 30 minutes away from Alubarna on horseback. Outside Alubarna, the Baroque Works' agents are waiting for Vivi, they have to kill her and the Straw Hats so that they would not be able to interpose on Crocodile's plan. Suddenly, Mr. 4 spots the 6 members of the Super Spot-Billed Duck Squad, unfortunately, the Straw Hats have disguised themselves and it is impossible to know who is who. At the same time, Mr. 2 notices that the rebels have almost reached the city, they have to do something quick so that Vivi does not meet up with Kohza. Mr. 4 fires at the Straw Hats but his bomb are ineffective against the ducks' speed, who start to split into small groups. Mr. 4 and Miss Merry Christmas chase after the pair who went south, Mr. 2 takes the pair in the southwest and Mr. 1 and Miss Doublefinger chase the pair in the west. Unfortunately, the agents are deceived, the six ducks who were rode by Zoro and Nami (who are facing Mr. 1 and Miss Doublefinger), Chopper and Sanji (who are facing Mr. 4 and Miss Merry Christmas), Usopp and Eyelashes (who are facing Mr. 2) were decoys. Vivi who had been hiding along side Carue was waiting for the path to be clear and with nobody left in their way they can now catch up with the rebels.
