Gin always sacrificed himself to save Krieg an he did anything to win, that's why people called him "Demon".
Meanwhile, Luffy attempts to stop Krieg, but fails. Luffy takes back his step and announces he will save Gin from Krieg. But Gin still believes in Krieg as his commander and throws away his mask as he was commanded. Krieg shoots the MH5.
