Despite nearly being vaporized, Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, Robin, and the Rolling regain their shadows at the last second along with the rest of Moriah's victims. As Hogback informs Absalom of their leader's defeat, the Straw Hats surround the still unconscious Luffy with Usopp worries that Luffy might hurt himself from facing stronger enemies in the future. As the Rolling Pirates offer to lead Nami to Moriah's treasure, she remembers Kuma before seeing him on the collapsed tower. Contacting his superiors via Transponder Snail, Kuma receives orders from the World Government to kill the Straw Hats and everyone else on Thriller Bark to prevent Moriah's defeat from becoming public. After taking out some of the Rolling Pirates with a strange move that sends several people flying backwards, Kuma turns his attention to Zoro.
