Standing in the middle of the path to Alubarna, Vivi is waiting to be seen by the rebellion leader Kohza so as to prevent the battle. But suddenly a cannon is fired in front of the rebel army that arrives at full speed. This creates a huge sand wall between Vivi and the rebels preventing them from seeing each other. This mischievous act is in fact the action of some Baroque Works minions who have infiltrated the Alabasta army.
In the tumult of the rebel army, Vivi tries to call her friend, without success and the battle between the royal guards and rebels begins. At the same time, Vivi becomes extremely vulnerable without defense in the middle of an army in motion. Carue is fortunately able to defend her, but is severely injured in the process. Suddenly Usopp comes to help, riding a camel.
Meanwhile, Sanji comes to rescue a second Usopp who had been beaten quite easily by Mr. 2. Sanji worries then for Vivi knowing that she will face an impostor. However, Vivi notices the fake-Usopp's strange behavior, acting uncaring about Carue. Asking for Usopp to prove their friendship, Mr.2-Usopp shows his bandage. But it does not appear to be the correct sign, Carue in an ultimate effort carries Vivi away while Mr. 2 reveals his true self.
