Luffy looks at Boa Hancock's back and notes that he has seen what was on it before. Hancock tries, but fails to turn him to stone with her powers when he mistakes her Mero Mero no Mi abilities for Foxy'sNoro Noro Beam. Luffy tries to escape, but gets captured by the Kuja pirates and is brought to the execution arena. Marguerite confesses to bringing him onto the island, and Hancock turns her along with her two companions to stone. Enraged at the Kuja's lack of empathy for Marguerite, Luffy knocks out Bacura, the panther sent to execute him. Hancock's two younger sisters, Boa Sandersonia and Boa Marigold, jump into the arena and, using their Devil Fruit powers, transform into snake-women to fight Luffy.
