"Kuma's Nikyu Nikyu Power That Deflect Everything" is the 376th episode of the One Piece anime.
Zoro attempts to fight Kuma, yet all of his attacks are effortlessly repelled. Kuma reveals that he has eaten the Nikyu Nikyu no Mi, which enables him to repel attacks and air at very high speed. He then proves his power by easily shrugging off Sanji's Concasse attack and taking out Franky and Usopp with barely any effort. Finally, he compresses air to form a pressure bomb before delivering an ultimatum: He'll spare everyone if they hand over Luffy, only to be met with defiance. Kuma mentions that it's a shame before detonating Thriller Bark with his Ursus Shock attack.
Bartholomew Kuma towers over everyone as some of them wonder what powers does he have to cause that much destruction. Lola is upset as she and the rest of the Rolling Pirates had just finished suffering through the nightmare of Gekko Moriah, and they now have to suffer through another one in Kuma. The other members of the Rolling Pirates decide to fight as the Straw Hat Pirates already went through a lot to defeat Moriah. Zoro suddenly speaks up saying Kuma challenged him intending to take down the Shichibukai himself. Kuma suddenly starts to speak rather highly about the Straw Hats on how they quickly became infamous. However, Kuma states that they must be taken out and Zoro prepares his swords. Usopp tries to talk Zoro out of it but Zoro intends to fight anyway even if it leads to his demise.
As a first attack, Zoro uses Nitoryu Iai: Rashomon but Kuma quickly moves out of the way of the attack. Kuma is suddenly above Zoro and tries to attack him but Zoro manages to dodge the attack at the last second. Zoro comments on how fast Kuma is and Kuma sends another paw-shaped air attack that manages to slightly graze Zoro. Everyone then notices the paw on Kuma's hand as Zoro gets up again. Zoro uses Sanjuroku Pound Ho but Kuma deflects the attack away that crashes near some of the Rolling Pirates. Chopper wonders how Kuma is able to deflect the attack with his bare hands and Zoro says he figured out what Kuma's ability is. Kuma then reveals that he ate the Nikyu Nikyu no Mi that allows him to deflect anything. The other Straw Hats question the name and appearance of Kuma's Devil Fruit and, as Franky says he doesn't think it's not a serious devil fruit, Kuma sends an air blast at Franky knocking the cyborg down. Everyone is shocked on how Franky, a cyborg, got knocked down so easily and Robin says that Kuma is deflecting the air itself. Kuma calls the technique the Pad Ho as he is able to deflect the air itself into a high-speed, damaging attack.
Kuma now assumes a sumo-like position and fires off multiple air shots known as Tsuppari Pad Ho at Zoro. Zoro manages to evade the attack using Toro Nagashi but, as he connects with the attack on Kuma, Kuma deflects the attack away with his paw pads. Zoro is sent flying backwards and Kuma quickly moves closer to him. Some of the Rolling Pirates comment that Zoro is too worn out from fighting Oars and, as Usopp calls out, Kuma is suddenly behind Zoro preparing for another attack. Sanji suddenly rushes in and kicks Kuma in the face halting the attack. Zoro angrily tells Sanji not to butt in but notices Sanji falling down after kicking Kuma. Sanji screams in pain as Kuma recognizes him due to his kicking style. Sanji wonders if Kuma's face is made of steel and Usopp fires a Hi no Tori Boshi/Fire Bird Star at Kuma. Kuma simply deflects the attack back Usopp damaging him and the Straw Hats are clearly having trouble fighting the Shichibukai.
After a bit of silence, Kuma speaks saying how boring it is to fight against the injured Straw Hats. Kuma admits it isn't a fair fight as the Straw Hats already fought against Moriah and Oars but Kuma says he must follow orders even if he doesn't agree with them. Kuma then suddenly starts to compress a large amount of air. Nami notices that Kuma is deflecting a giant air mass into a ball and Robin says he plans on compressing it down and releasing it into a bomb. After a little while, Kuma appears to have finished but, before he releases the attack, he has a proposal for everyone. Kuma says he will spare everyone's lives if they hand Luffy over to him. The Straw Hats and the Rolling Pirates all decline the proposal and Kuma releases his attack, Ursus Shock upon everyone resulting in a massive explosion resulting in the destruction of Thriller Bark.
