* EpicFail: ''Every'' time Shepherd tries to use his high-tech bazooka gun. The first time, he shoots it ''backwards'', into a crowd of Marines. Then, Robin uses her powers to make him repeatedly shoot it wrong direction. Later, when he tries to shoot the Straw Hats and the ''Merry'' with it when they make their escape, he misses and accidentally takes out the very cannon that was about to shoot them down.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking:
-->'''Shepherd''': I've been subjected to humiliation, and incarceration, and being called "Condoriano"!
* BigNo: Usopp's response when he realizes that he's the one who's going to have to fire the Impact Dial (which really hurts the user) in order for the Straw Hats to escape.



* DelayedReaction[=/=]DoubleTake: The rest of the Straw Hats after Luffy reveals that he still has the octopus balloon.
-->'''Luffy''': I have it.\\
'''Everyone''': "He has it." "He says he's got it." "He has it?" "He's got it."\\
'''Luffy''': Yup, sure do.\\
'''Everyone else except Robin''': [[BigWhat WHAT?!]] Where?
* DressingAsTheEnemy: All of the Straw Hats except for Zoro do this at some point during the arc, in order to blend in: Luffy and Sanji as cooks, Nami as a janitor and later a nurse, Chopper as a doctor, Usopp as a Marine grunt, and Robin as Inspector Shepherd.

* OhCrap: Usopp's reaction when, after he wonders aloud who should be the one to fire the Impact Dial, the rest of the Straw Hats give him evil grins and GlowingEyesOfDoom before unanimously deciding that Usopp ''himself'' should be the one to do so. His response is a BigNo.



* StormingTheCastle: Luffy and Sanji do a mild version when they charge into the brig (despite knowing that there's a giant squadron of Marines waiting for them) to rescue Zoro and Usopp.



* WoundedGazelleGambit: Nami while dressed as a nurse pretends that the "invading pirates" had attacked her and threw off suspicion from her.

to:

* UseYourHead: Zoro knocks "Condoriano" (Shepherd) unconscious this way (to keep him from spoiling Usopp's ruse), since he was handcuffed at the time.

** When the Straw Hats are attempting to make their escape on the ''Going Merry'', they are surrounded by about a gazillion guns and swords. Dr. Kobato, and Nami soon after, pretend to be Chopper's hostages in order to help the crew get to the deck safely. The others quickly play along (with [[IdiotHero Luffy even thinking that Chopper's being serious]]).

Added DiffLines:

* IndyPloy: The Straw Hats make use of several of these throughout the first half of the arc when they're trying to avoid being caught by the Marines. Most of these plots involve disguise and infiltration.
** When Usopp realizes that the Marines think the real Shepherd is one of them (since Robin is currently pretending to be Shepherd), he successfully manages to convince the Marines that Shepherd is their comrade "Condoriano", with Zoro helping the ruse.

* ButtMonkey / HumiliationConga: Poor Shepherd.



* HumiliationConga: Poor Shepherd.


Added DiffLines:

* LetsGetDangerous: A downplayed and subtle example with Luffy, but it's there. During the first confrontation between Luffy and Jonathan in the latter's office, Luffy spends most of it grinning and cheerfully munching on Jonathan's food, entirely unconcerned as usual about being found out. However, once Jonathan informs Luffy that [[NumberTwo Zoro]] was captured, Luffy ''immediately'' stops laughing and becomes deadly serious, gets his [[TranquilFury dangerous blank expression]] on, and prepares to fight Jonathan (towards whom, until then, he'd been quite amiable).

* FacePalm: Jonathan does ** Whether or not this was intentional, this was the first mention of the G bases the World Government uses, as it involves Marines who have pride of their base and different personalities, and a Vice Admiral to lead said base.
