At the Courthouse Plaza, the marines defeat Oimo and Kāshī and capture the Straw Hats' allies in the courthouse. Almost on the Bridge of Hesitation, which leads through the Gates of Justice, Spandam tries to contact the CP9 members at the tower to know what is going on with the pirates. But he learns too late that he accidentally invoked a Buster Call, causing ten battleships and five vice-admirals to be dispatched to Enies Lobby from the nearby navy headquarters. As Robin attempts to reason with him of what will happen to Enies Lobby once the Buster Call is invoked, Spandam makes another mistake by informing the whole island of the coming threat while admitting that he does not care if the 10,000 navy soldiers under him are obliterated in process. This causes the navy soldiers to leave their prisoners and flee to the coast. With the Buster Call underway, the CP9 operatives decide to end their respective matches quickly while Luffy begins his fight against Lucci.
