Ordeals' Gates
Ordeals' gates
Ordeals (試練 Shiren?) are sacred and nearly impassable tests, run by the four priests serving under Enel. To enter the Ordeal, people must go to the Entrance of Ordeals. Whoever enters the Ordeal must fight a priest assigned to that territory. The chances of survival in the Ordeal are very slim but both the Straw Hat Pirates and the Shandia tribe managed to overcome the odds.

Ordeal of BallsEdit

Ordeal of Balls (玉の試練 Tama no Shiren?) is managed by the priest Satori of the wandering forest. The survival rate of this trial is 10%. This trial has many cloud spheres called "Surprise Balls", which hold random tricks such as snakes and explosions. The Milky Road is the only way to get out of there and only by using a boat. This trial ranged from chapter 246 to 250, this is the first of the two trials to have in-depth lore. In the English version of Pirates Carnival and FUNimation's edited-for-TV dub, it's called the I.Q. Orb Test, but in the FUNimation's uncut DVDs, it's called the Ordeal of Spheres. It first appeared in Chapter 246 and Episode 160.[1]

This trial was the first choice of Luffy when he, Usopp, Sanji went into the Upper Yard, searching for the others who were kidnapped.

The rule of this trial is that someone must stop the boat from leaving the forest and stopping it is not easy with Satori around.

Ordeal of IronEdit

Ordeal of Iron (鉄の試練 Tetsu no Shiren?) is run by Ohm. The survival rate was 0% but since Zoro passed, it gives him a powerful attribute. Ohm uses his sword to try to slash someone's heart. If it hits, the person will instantly die. In addition, he rigs his territory with Milky Dials full of iron cloud linked to pressure plates on the ground. If his victim accidentally steps on one of these plates, the dials shoot the iron cloud out in the form of barbed wire, shredding them. This was the last ordeal in Skypiea arc and only Chopper and later Zoro were involved in the game. In the English version of Pirates Carnival and FUNimation's edited-for-TV dub, it's called the I.Q. Iron Test, but in the FUNimation's uncut DVDs, it keeps its original name. It first appeared in Chapter 251 and Episode 164.[2]

This ordeal has a White-Barbed Iron Deathmatch (白荊デスマッチ Shiroibara Desumacchi?), a dome of iron cloud strands with thorns sticking out, creating a cage, stopping their victims from escaping. Zoro originally commented on how it was unnecessary, since he did not have any intentions to run away. It later showed that it was all barbwire, making it lethal to get stuck in it.

Ordeal of StringEdit

The Ordeal of String (紐の試練 Himo no Shiren?) is performed by Shura. The survival rate is 3%. In the English version of Pirates Carnival and FUNimation's edited-for-TV dub, it's called the I.Q. String Test, but in the FUNimation's uncut DVDs, it keeps its original name. It first appeared in Chapter 256 and Episode 164.[3]

Shura places long strands of String Cloud, an almost invisible, but very strong material, throughout a large area of forest. Travelers through the area are slowly entangled in the Cloud, and do not notice it until they can no longer move. Shura is then free to finish his victims off using his heat lance and Fuza's fire breath.

Wiper managed to avoid the clutches of the String clouds and defeat Shura with a Reject Dial.

This is the only ordeal that was not passed by one of the Straw Hats.

The Ordeal of Swamp (沼の試練 Numa no Shiren?) is lead by Gedatsu, and its survival rate is 50%.[4]

The only Straw Hat to come here was Chopper, who managed to defeat Gedatsu by taking advantage of his incompetence and weakness. In the English version of Pirates Carnival and FUNimation's edited-for-TV dub, it's called the I.Q. Swamp Test, but in the FUNimation's uncut DVDs, it keeps its original name. It first appeared in Chapter 251 and Episode 164,[5] and is fully seen in Chapter 262.

The area is filled with sinking clouds, making it difficult to navigate around. To make matters worse, Gedatsu creates purple clouds and tries to toss it on someone's head. The cloud can cause whoever is in it to drown, since no air exists inside of it. It is hard to get the cloud off the head because it is not solid, with every move one sinks into the clouds even more. He also uses Jet Dials to give a boost to his punches and Milky Dials on his shoes allow him to fly, as well as making him close to immune to sinking (unless he falls in head first).
