Franky is knocked unconscious after a failed attempt to fire himself at Oars with a giant slingshot known as Kuwagata and shoot him at point-blank range with Weapons Left. Nami arrives and joins the battle, but Oars demonstrates that he can somehow stretch his limbs, which the crew realizes is Moriah's Devil Fruit powers. Elsewhere, Luffy meets up with the Rolling pirates and their captain Lola the Proposer, whose shadows have been stolen by Moria. Lola has her crew plant all the shadows they captured into him in order to multiply his fighting strength and grant him new skills so that he can defeat Moria. The result is a monstrous version of Luffy, called Nightmare Luffy, that proceeds to reach his crew and take out Moria before the shadows leave his body after ten minutes' time. show less

As Brook takes Luffy to the stop of the main mast, Nami uses her Rain Tempo to drench the zombie to be frozen in place by the low-temp air cannon Franky and Usopp built.
