Mohmoo lays dazzed and unconscious from Luffy's attack against a wall. The villagers can not believe that the battle is occurring as no human has even been strong enough to stand up against the fishmen. However, the Arlong Pirates do not appear to be worried. Chew asks Arlong to calm down and let his generals fight the Straw Hats. Hatchan attacks the Straw Hats with his Jet Ink. However, all of the Straw Hats dodge, leaving Luffy covered in the ink.
Zoro scolds Luffy for his carelessness and Usopp gives an astonished face due to Luffy's condition. Luffy after his windmill attack gets his legs stuck in the ground and he is unable to move or see. Meanwhile, Hatchan throws a large stone at Luffy. Sanji steps in and saves Luffy from it by kicking the rock and smashing it before it can harm him. Usopp attempts to remove Luffy's leg from the ground but his efforts are in vein.
Zoro faces Hatchan and Usopp is chased by Chew. Arlong takes advantage of Luffy's devil fruit-weakness of the sea, and pulls Luffy out of the ground, and throws him in the sea.
