"Coming to the Desert Kingdom! The Rain-Calling Powder and the Rebel Army" is the 93rd episode of the One Piece anime.
As the Straw Hat Pirate crew arrive in Alabasta, Nami expected everyone to be on their best behavior. However Luffy immediately ran off to get food separating him from his crew. The crew then notices that Mr. 3's ship is docked nearby and Vivi remembers that the ship moves by the means of Mr. 3's Doru Doru no Mi. Vivi says that she and Carue cannot go onto the streets since most of the citizens would immediately recognize her so Usopp came up with an idea to walk through the streets while hiding under a blanket. After walking through the streets being concealed under a blanket they manage to get to a safe place. Vivi says that she plans on going to Yuba where the rebel's base is but the only way for them to travel is crossing the desert so they decided to stock up on supplies. Sanji and Chopper are the only ones who Mr. 3 don't recognize so they go off to buy the supplies.
In the middle of the desert shows Luffy finding himself lost but then sees a smoke in the distance and thinks that the smoke is coming from a restaurant. Sanji and Chopper are buying the supplies they need but Chopper notices a strange smell which makes him feel uncomfortable and Sanji tells him that it is called perfume. Sanji is distracted by the beautiful women in Alabasta and Chopper can't bear the aroma so Sanji tells him that he would take care of the shopping and runs off yelling for the woman. Chopper is exhausted by the boiling heat so he decided to rest in a truck with enough shade to cool down. Little did he know that the truck he was resting in was supposed to be for travelling weapons and food for the rebels. The truck then starts to travel to the a certain location with Chopper inside.
Luffy stands in front of the building that had smoke coming out but much to his disappointment he thought that it looked nothing like a restaurant. Luffy sees a pile of bag filled with green powder and said that it tasted awful so he put all the bags into the incinerator. When the bags are being burnt, Luffy notices the smoke coming out of the chimney turning into a faded green color then dark clouds started to appear. Then rain started falling from the clouds and a man inside the building realized the rain and rushed outside. The man starts to become depressed since it was his great ambition. Luffy apologizes and says that he could simply buy it again but the man says that it is very difficult and accidentally reveals that the sale is prohibited making Luffy realize the old man is a criminal.
When Chopper came to he was confused and panicked why the truck was moving then the truck then arrived where Kohza was. Inside a room shows a man coming to Kohza having a short talk and Kohza says that he and the rebel army will change Alabasta. While Chopper is in a bit of dilemma, it is revealed that a camel helped Chopper escape. Chopper asked the camel why he helped him escape where the camel replied saying that it makes him look cool. Chopper thinks that the camel is weird but a fun guy. Chopper then goes back to Nanohana by following the aroma of perfume.
It shows Luffy and the man with a beaten face. Luffy asks the man what the powder was for and he replies that the green powder is called Dance Powder also known as Rain-Calling Powder where it goes through a complicated process to artificially make rainfall. He then goes on saying that Alabasta has fought against drought since ancient times but they weren't able to use Dance Powder since it is prohibited by the World Government and that the rebellion is an outcome of the drought.
Sanji and Chopper come back from shopping and they now plan on going to Yuba. Vivi says that this will be a scorching, hot journey and they put all their strenghths into the journey. However, they suddenly realize that a person is missing and cannot leave without him, that person would be Luffy.
