After Rob Lucci is knocked into his ship by Luffy's enlarged fist, Vice Admiral Doberman orders his men to stand down when they failed to recognize the CP9 Agent. Doberman proceeds to reveal to his men that fifteen years ago, a 13-year-old Rob Lucci is sent as an emissary of the world government to help a country at war with pirates. Prior to his arrival, five hundred of the country's soldiers were taken hostage with the pirates' captain using them to take the king's throne. But allowing himself to be captured, believing that the soldiers are "guilty of being weak", Lucci murdered all five hundred hostages before executing the pirate's captain to resolve the matter. Though Doberman's crew were shocked by Lucci's actions, the Vice Admiral voices that is the reason why he is not taking actions in securing Robin as Lucci is suitable for the task. By that time, Luffy makes it to Doberman's ship and proceeds to fight Lucci as Vice Admiral Onigumo orders the ships to redirect their cannons to the gradually damaged vessel.
