Episode Summary

Proud, Tall Warriors! Dramatic Battle of Sanji and Usopp!
Kuroobi viciously attacks Sanji underwater but Sanji manages to free himself and get to the surface by covering Kuroobi's gills. They continue the fight on land and Sanji shows just what he is made of. Usopp meanwhile finds his courage even though he is ready to pretend that he is defeated. He fights on and even manages to take out the merman Chew with some quick thinking and clever tactics. However, back at Arlong Park, Zoro and Sanji are having less luck with Arlong.moreless

  • The manly Usopp...wins a fight?

    The fight between Sanji and Haroobi was pretty average in that really, nothing special happened. Sanji gets beat around when he tries first freeing Luffy from his stone feet cage, but once he gets onto land it was a clear cut win for Sanji who returns the favour. Surprisingly even though it wasn't really much at all, Usopp had a pretty good and entertaining fight. What makes Nami and Usopp's fights so interesting is that since they are the weakest in the group, they have to strategize their plans or else they'll easily be killed. Even though it took a lot of balls for Usopp to stand up again, he actually thought up a pretty good plan to defeat Chew.moreless
  • Sanji and Usopp finally win a fight.

    Zoro had defeated Hachi, and is about to go save Luffy who was trapped underwater. Sanji decides to save Luffy instead since Zoro was injured from his previous battle. However Sanji is viciously attacked by Kuroobi. Sanji is no match since mermen are stronger underwater. Sanji tries to escape for air, but is continuesly stopped by Kuroobi who uses some deadly attacks on him. Sanji bites his gills to force him on land, and at that point, Kuroobi gets the beating of his life and is defeated. Usopp meanwhile has his own problems with Chu, but summons up enough courage to fight the merman. Usopp eventually manages to take out Chu with quick thinking and smart tactics proving that he too can be a brave warrior of the sea. However, at Arlong Park, Zoro and Sanji are having less luck as they try to hold off Arlong until Luffy is revived.moreless
