Robin is frozen by Aokiji and Luffy tells the others to escape with her. In the Going Merry, Usopp and Chopper begin to thaw her in the shower. Luffy challenges Aokiji to fight him and him alone right before Sanji and Zoro attack. Aokiji accepts, and Luffy gets completely frozen, but his life is spared as Aokiji believes he must repay the debt the marines incurred from Crocodile's defeat at Luffy's hands. Aokiji also realizes that he cannot go after the rest of the Straw Hats, due to his accepting Luffy's challenge. With the crew defrosted, they continue sailing as usual. Zoro spots the giant frog they heard about and they chase it to an island with a lighthouse, but it appears they'll sink before they get there.
