After fighting Lucci in Gear Third for a minute, barely escaping cannon fire in time, Luffy is left to cope with the technique's side effect of his body shrinking to a fraction of its original size for around the same time. Luffy attempts to hide from Lucci, but is found and pinned with the CP9 agent about to kill him. Luckily, the damage Luffy's initial punch while in Third Gear takes its toll on Lucci's legs with the agent stopping in his tracks as Luffy regains his usual size. At the other end of the Bridge of Hesitation, Spandam makes an attempt on Robin's life with Funkfreed, only for Franky to stop the blade and force him to assume his elephant form. After explaining his reasons to support the Straw Hats, Franky cripples Spandam under Funkfreed's weight before he and Robin, who regained her composure, decide to take the convoy ship. Meanwhile, having reached the entry point of Enies Lobby, the Galley-La foremen, the Franky Family, and the giants are forced to watch the fleeing marines allowed into three Buster Call's battleships that soon drift out into position. In the underground passage, the drowning group of Nami, Zoro, Ussop, Sanji, Chopper, Chimeney, and Gonbe are about to lose hope when they are saved by a mermaid: revealed to be Kokoro.
