Fanfic / Nine Minutes

Go To

Nine Minutes is a One Piece Fan Fiction written by serpentguy on Fanfiction.net. It is currently the eighth most popular story in the One Piece fandom.

During the final fight with Crocodile, Luffy makes a mistake and ends up dead. His heart stops beating for over nine minutes, before he is finally resuscitated. Who knew what a difference those nine minutes would make?

A warning to any who would read it: not only is it a Luffy/Harem story, but "Darker and Edgier" barely begins to describe it; not even the sixth One Piece film, the darkest piece of work in the entire franchise, comes close to rivaling Nine Minutes. And it's a true testament to the author's skill that despite that, the fic is still faithful to One Piece and its characters.

Examples

  • A Father to His Men: Smoker's reasons for wanting to kill the Strawhats instead of capture them? It's the only way to save Tashigi from being charged with treason as a pirate sympathizer.
  • A God Am I: Enel.
  • Above Good and Evil: Mr Rumble claims to be, because he's lightning incarnate. Lightning isn't good or evil, lightning just wants to burn.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: Enel's last words are how he doesn't want to die.
  • Ambiguously Gay: According to Tashigi, Admiral Akainu. Telling him by Den Den Mushi, during her own trial for treason.
  • Actually a Doombot: The crew beat Doflaming after Skypiea only for him to be revealed as his Black Knight technique (which creates a clone out of string).
  • Apologetic Attacker: Pagaya, unsurprisingly.
  • Appliance Defenestration: The side story of chapter 33 ends with the engineers throwing their table through a window.
  • Advertisement:
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Wiper is asked by the former chief what he plans to do when the war is finally over. Wiper doesn't have an answer. Until he decides to join the Strawhats at the end of the arc.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: Isaac's ultimate use of his Devil Fruit leaves a person too confused to even remember what they're doing. It also gives him a massive migraine in seconds.
    • Infusing an inanimate object with any Devil Fruit that isn't a Zoan turns it completely passive. A sword is infused with a Devil Fruit that allows the user to disable a person's senses but which sense is chosen completely at random.
  • Axe-Crazy: Enel, Marcus (even his coworkers are terrified of him). Lucci applies too, if his thoughts in Chapter 34 are to be believed. As he says himself, he could have solved their mission in "half a day of blood, fire and enjoyment" by torturing Iceburg into releasing Pluton's plans, then pretty much killing everyone on the island - but Robin - before burning it to the ground and bringing the woman to Enies Lobby for her execution. He's just professional enough to hide it.

  • The Bad Guy Wins: Subverted. It begins like this, but Luffy ends up killing Crocodile.
  • Badass Boast: "I hunt Logias for a living."
    • Luffy's "I've got a god to kill" qualifies.
    • Hamilton's little line about being an Anti-Logia Devil Fruit user.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Hina, as in canon, as well as Isaac of the Devil Fruit Hunters.
    • Mr. Rumble, AKA the Rumble Rumble Fruit's human form.
  • Bait-and-Switch: Gan Fall and not Luffy eats the Metal Metal Fruit. Then after Gan Fall's death, Luffy refuses to eat the fruit and instead force feeds it to Enel.
  • Battle in the Centre of the Mind: Luffy is on the receiving end of a very quick beatdown from Mr Rumble.
  • Berserk Button: Mr. Rumble seems to enjoy pushing Luffy's. With a sledgehammer.
    • Luffy manages to accidentally punch both of his, before even knowing he exists, by forcing him to share a body with the Metal-Metal Demon whom he hates and taking residence in the remnants of the Gum-Gum Devil's "house", whom he hates even more.
  • BFG: Wiper's God Slayer. That thing is a massive bazooka filled with what appears to be hundreds of various Dials, making it a polyvalent and insanely dangerous weapon, although it is much bulkier than any other Shandian weapon.
    • When the ship is raided by Franky's 'family' Wiper brings out his bazooka, it is explicitly stated his is three times bigger than any of theirs.
    • Wiper asks for a big cannon in chapter 33's side story, the ship artist eventually draws what is described as a 'cannon with sails', Wiper says they now have an idea of how big he wants the cannon to be.
  • Big Eater: Despite no longer being a rubber man, Luffy maintains his appetite. Since he can't eat as much, he instead eats more often.
  • Blatant Lies: The Strawhats are blamed for everything Crocodile did in Alabasta while Crocodile is hailed as the "noble Warlord who tried to stop them".
    • Tashigi claims to be guilty of crimes she couldn't possibly have committed to mock the Marines' habit of using scapegoats to cover up their own failures.
    • Tsura "accidentally" disconnects all the transponders before Akainu can call for Tashigi's arrest.
  • Blood Knight: Wiper. So much so, he's disappointed when the war is over.
    • Mr. Rumble.
  • Bond One-Liner: Usopp gives one after shooting a mercenary with his own grenade launcher.
  • Boring, but Practical: Most of Luffy's requests for the new ship are rather simple overall: a cushion for his favorite seat, tables that can be bolted down, etc. Most.
  • Bothering by the Book: Smoker can't arrest Tashigi because he's currently been relieved of all authority.
  • Brick Joke: In an omake, Usopp experiments with the Devil Fruits they've captured and accidentally fuses a zoan fruit with their kettle. A few chapters later, Nami warns Tashigi not to open a barred door as it's where they keep the kettle.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Luffy; the near-death experience he had at the start was so close to "Dead" that it counted for the Gum-Gum Fruit, so it reincarnated and he's a Rubber Man no longer. As a result, he is weaker than most of the people he faces for the next arc, but he still retains his insane strength and resilience.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Three members of the Franky Family try to capture Luffy and Vivi, apparently not realizing that someone with bounties of 350 million and 100 million respectively would have earned them.
  • The Butcher: Luffy's new epithet is "The Devil".
  • Casual Danger Dialogue: When the Foxy Pirates try to rob them, the Revolutionaries talk about how ridiculous it is.
  • Chick Magnet: Luffy, obviously.
  • *Click* Hello: Usopp does this to one of the mercenaries with his own grenade launcher.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: Lets just say that Dan Marcus makes Zaraki Kenpachi look perfectly balanced and sane.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Vivi calls out Nami for taking advantage of the Skypieans worship of Luffy by telling them God demanded a new dress, a purse, some cute shoes, and tangerine scented perfume. Nami concedes and tells them the perfume doesn't have to be tangerine scented.
  • Confusion Fu: Nami realizes that if she doesn't know what the dials she's using do, then neither does Ohm when she attacks with them.
  • Continuity Nod: Even after losing his Devil Fruit, Luffy is still a rather poor swimmer as he ate it before learning how to swim properly.
  • Crapsack World: It's even worse than the original One Piece World
    • We have privateers who are basically "Pirates with a badge". So long as they don't commit obvious acts of piracy they're left alone
    • Smoker is more ruthless in this timeline than he originally was.
    • The revolutionaries aren't shown to be as clear cut good guys i.e. They work with Monet and Caesar Clown.
    • The Strawhats themselves. Remember in the manga where they didn't kill anyone? Well here they do.
    • CP 9 is shown to be much more ruthless instead of just stated being so.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Marcus wears a vest and underclothes made with fibers from a rare wood that's considered the most buoyant material in the world, just in case he falls into the ocean.
    • "Crazy Eyes" carries a Seastone dagger despite such a weapon's most likely horrendous cost. And keeps a smaller one, made of Seastone too, in his boot.
    • Gan Fall gathers up every grape on Skypiea so that the Metal-Metal Fruit will reincarnate into one of them when he dies.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Averted. Sanji declines the chance to eat a devil fruit as he thinks it's a bad idea to have too many people on the ship who can't swim.
  • Cut Himself Shaving: Aisa claims the mercenary Wiper had been fighting that's currently lying in a pool of blood "tripped and knocked herself out".
  • Darker and Edgier: It begins with Luffy dying, for Pete's sake.
  • Darkest Hour: It will be difficult to top Water Seven in sheer darkness: Usopp is almost dead, Franky -who was responsible for Usopp's injury- was killed by an out-of-control Luffy, Luffy lost control of his Devil Fruit, Robin breaks up with him, as a result of his depression so does Nami, Iceburg is about to be murdered...And the new ship is filled with A THOUSAND TONS OF SEASTONE-LACED HIGH-YIELD DYNAMITE that Lucci detonates while there's hundreds of people around it. And Robin is forced to watch.
  • Dating Catwoman: Inverted with Hina, a Marine, and Sanji have this sort of relationship.
  • David vs. Goliath: An almost literal example when Conis fights Yama.
  • Death by Adaptation: Crocodile, Gan Fall, Pagaya, Enel, the Foxy Pirates, and Franky.
  • Defiant to the End: Dan Marcus.
  • Defector from Decadence: Tashigi.
  • Determinator: Luffy, considering it is never mentioned in any chapter that he is fully healed, it's probably correct to assume Luffy has gone nearly two dozen chapters half dead, this after coming the closest thing to death there is but stopping just short.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Tashigi, it probably isn't a good idea to call Akainu gay.
  • Digging Yourself Deeper: Unconsciously done by Haraden through most of Chapter 31. Ultimately leads to Luffy killing him - though he intended to do so anyway.
  • Disability Superpower: Zoro's complete lack of direction helps against an enemy who messes with your sense of direction.
    • Later, having been robbed of most of his senses allows Zoro to fully awaken Observation Haki.
  • Disaster Dominoes: The explosion Lucci set off managed to damage part of Water 7's foundation. If part of it goes, the entire place will follow soon after.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Iceburg after Franky's death
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Rob Lucci is mentioned in chapter 27 as being Robin's first... pretty much everything. It's a huge consolation prize that her most recent is Luffy, who's pretty much the ultimate prize for the female crew members.
    • Monet appears in chapter 28.
    • The captain of the privateer ship the crew raids in chapters 30 and 31 turns out to be the man who sold the Boa sisters into slavery. The money made from that one sale was used to start his entire slave business; he still has their doll as a memento of his good fortune.
  • Epic Fail: Chopper tries to apply reindeer courtship to human relationships as part of being Sanji's wingman. Turns out, headbutting a girl doesn't help getting her interested in you.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: One of the mercenaries at Water 7 ate a Devil Fruit that lets her turn things into spinning disks, including herself.
  • Exact Words: One mercenary claims he hasn't eaten a Devil Fruit and he hasn't. His sword however has.
    • Said sword disables one sense each time it cuts someone. However, this applies to more than the five main senses. It also applies to things like hand-eye coordination, sense of pain, and timing.
  • Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: Iceburg is in the middle of talking about how impossible it is that the Galley La company misplaced a thousand tonnes of wood because of the people who check it when he realizes that those people (Kalifa, Kaku, and Lucci) must be traitors.
  • Extra Oredinary: Gan Fall after eating the Metal Metal Fruit.
  • Fatal Flaw: Greed for Isaac and Berrit. Usopp defeats them by throwing the Devil Fruits they had collected off their boat, leaving them too busy trying to catch them to protect themselves.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Isaac seems reasonable enough until he learns the fruit they wanted back was already consumed by Vivi.
  • For the Evulz: Enel's reason for destroying the Golden Bell is simply because he can.
  • Forced to Watch: Lucci waits to detonate a massive bomb until Robin is close enough to witness it.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Conis is very skilled at working with dials and Wiper is a genius when it comes to making weapons.
  • Good People Have Good Sex: Luffy and Robin.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: Wiper uses two enemies as nun-chucks at one point.
  • Heroic BSoD: Comedic example. In chapter 32, Sanji goes into an impressive level of denial when he learns that Luffy has three girlfriends. At the same time. And who are perfectly okay with the arrangement. He bangs head against the mast, faints, and then starts Jumping Off the Slippery Slope.
    • Iceburg enters a more serious one after Luffy kills Franky. He acknowledges that Franky was in the wrong but still wants someone to pay.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Luffy manages to stab Crocodile after the latter's sandstorm unleashes all the dance powder, causing a massive downpour.
  • Hollywood Healing: So very averted with Usopp. After being impaled, he has to be put on life support, might need a lung transplant and lost a kidney.
  • Honor Among Thieves: The Pirate's Laws act as rules of engagement.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Vivi spends some time first trying to figure out what her new powers are, then later learning how to use them.
  • I Just Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Robin plans on adding Nami to her and Luffy's relationship, to keep Luffy from missing her when she inevitably has to leave the crew. Fat chance.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: The engineers quickly upgrade from coffee to liquor when the Strawhat's tell them what they want on their ship.
  • Idiot Ball: Robin has it rolling in the palm of her hand (although to be fair she has plenty good reasons to have trust issues) for believing Luffy will simply either abandon or forget about her despite being his first...everything. And we do mean everything. Monkey "Die-before-I-let-my-friends-be-hurt" Luffy.
    • Sanji leads two women who clearly are interested in the crew's massive gold supply straight to it after they claim they've "always wanted to make love on a giant block of gold".
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Usopp ends up impaled with a chisel after Franky's jackhammer explodes.
  • Improvised Weapon: After Luffy steals his jitte, Smoker uses a baton with a pair of seastone handcuffs attached to the end.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: The first time Mr. Rumble shows true approval of Luffy is after the latter electrocutes Franky.
  • Irony: When Vivi decides to join the Strawhats, Cobra offers her an unknown Devil Fruit he just bought (explaining how the Falcon and Jackal fruits have been used by their strongest fighters for generations). It turns out to be Crocodile's Sand-Sand Fruit.
    • Haraden (to Luffy): Any pirate that went there (i.e., betray the Pirate Laws) would be no better than a goddamn Revolutionary.
    • After years of drought, Alabasta faces rainfall so heavy it's in danger of flooding.
  • It Only Works Once: While falling off Skypiea, Conis activates a device to make the Going Merry fly but remarks that because of the unique circumstances, they'll never be able to do it again.
  • Kangaroo Court: The tribunal for Smoker, Tashigi, and Hina is blatantly unfair from the start such as them not being allowed attorneys or even speaking in their defense.
  • Kick the Dog: Enel reduces the Golden Bell to a lump of molten gold. Right after it rung for the first time in 400 years.
  • Killed Off for Real: Oh boy. Contrary to the original work, people die in Nine Minutes. Crocodile, Enel, all 3 of the Devil Hunters (see Rasputinian Death for Marcus), Haraden the five-eighths giant... Being on the opposite side from the Straw Hats is a BAD idea in this story. Good guys like Gan Fall and Pagaya aren't safe, either.
    • It is also very likely that none of the Foxy Pirates survived their encounter with Hamilton. Chapter 34 reveals that at least Porsche survived.
    • Franky is electrocuted and impaled for nearly killing Usopp.
  • Knife Nut: Luffy temporarily takes to using knives after losing his Devil Fruit powers.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: Smoker realizes at one point he no longer has any hope of beating Luffy in a fight and simply lets him go.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Luffy's suggestions to the shipwrights for the crew's new ship are mostly simple practical ideas: a cushion for his favorite seat on the figurehead, tables that can be bolted down in storms, hammocks with adjustable heights, and he wants the ship to fly.
  • Let Us Never Speak of This Again: The ending of the first omake in chapter 32 after Zoro sees Sanji trying on Luffy's clothes, after finding out their captain is dating Nami, Vivi, and Robin.
    • Zoro has this reaction when he has to be led by the hand out of a swamp by Chopper.
  • Love Triangle: Luffy is unaware he's caught in one with Vivi and Nami. They are both aware of the other's attraction for him, which badly sours their relationship, but they didn't know he was already in a secret relationship with Robin. Nami took it badly.
  • Marry Them All: A variation. Luffy has three women on his crew who have feelings for him. Knowing full well that he'll end his relationship with her if he realizes it's hurting his other two friends Robin quickly engineers a solution — he dates all of them at the same time.
  • Mugging the Monster: The Franky family tries to rob some members of the Strawhat crew that don't have bounties. It doesn't end well for them.
    • The Revolutionaries' reaction to the Foxy Pirates trying to raid them is an amused, "That's adorable."
  • Mundane Utility: The Soap Soap Fruit gets fused to a mop to make cleaning easier.
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: Gan Fall's death is part of a complex plan to defeat Enel.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Franky stares in horror after Usopp is impaled when Franky's jackhammer explodes.
  • Mythology Gag: One of the fruits the Devil Fruit hunters have captured is the Samu Samu Fruit, a gag fruit Oda made up that causes the user to only speak in puns.
    • The existence of Mr. Rumble is based off a canon rumor that Devil Fruits contain demons that fight if they're in close proximity.
  • Neck Snap: Luffy to Bellamy. Though the latter survived, barely, due to his Devil Fruit.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Luffy's "fight" against the Franky Family after they nearly kill Usopp.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Luffy is developing this mentality. When Bellamy insulted Nami, Luffy didn't punch him out, he snapped Bellamy's neck.
  • No Place for Me There: Wiper leaves Skypiea because he can't stand all the peace and wants to engage in more war.
  • No-Sell: Marcus' Shred Shred Fruit protects him from most harm by tearing to shred anything that comes close to him. It even works on energy attacks, somehow.
    • It doesn't technically 'work' on energy attacks, he just weakens their effects on him by shredding the atoms the energy is traveling through, doesn't work properly though.
  • Not Quite Flight: The Going Merry uses its dials to glide down from Skypiea to the ocean.
  • Official Couple: Luffy will have a harem, as indicated by the story summary, and so far it seems to consist of Robin, Nami, and Vivi, who all have feelings for him. By chapter 31, he's dating all three at the same time. Also, judging by his conversation with the captain of the West Viper Brigade, it's fairly clear that Boa Hancock is going to be joining them.
    • Sanji is implied to have had a tryst with Hina, though it's unknown if anything will come out of it.
    • Zoro fully admits to having a thing for Tashigi. They end up more-or-less a couple in the Skypiea arc, and this along with her disillusionment with the Marines ultimately causes her to defect to the Straw Hats after the events of the tribunal.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Enel has one when Luffy force-feeds him a second Devil Fruit.
    • Smoker has one in chapter 22 after realizing that that he can't beat Luffy anymore, since the latter has not only eaten the Rumble Rumble Fruit, but has also mastered his haki.
    • Robin has a borderline Freak Out! in chapter 33 when she meets Lucci again.
  • One-Man Army: During the first part of the battle royale on Skypiea, Luffy's fight is simply "Luffy vs. Everyone".
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Everybody is stunned when Vivi suggests that they kill the West Viper Brigade crew.
  • Papa Wolf: Pagaya.
  • Pet the Dog: Underplayed with Lucci, towards Iceburg. He actually likes the man and seems to somewhat regret having to betray him. He's still manipulating the Galley-La's stock holders into commanding his murder at the exact same time he reflects on it. But hey, it's the thought that counts.
  • Poisonous Person: Or duck rather.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Luffy's "When I say it's over...Then it's over." to Marcus before pretty much vaporizing his skull.
  • Psychic Static: During the climax of her fight with Ohm, Nami thinks about her crew to keep him from realizing she's creating a tornado.
  • Psycho for Hire: Dan Marcus, the Devil Fruit Hunter. He even admits to have chosen this career because it allowed him to kill people without getting in trouble with the Marines.
  • Rasputinian Death: Marcus, OH SO MUCH. It took several chapters, and massive blows from Wiper, Enel, Luffy, Vivi, Pagaya and Luffy again to do him in - surviving millions of volts, brutal beatings, being torn to shreds by a sandstorm and even losing half of his body to six Reject Dials, an attack that vaporized everything else around him. Even reduced to little more than a head and heart, he's still raving about murdering everyone around him.
    • While he dies with a single attack, Haraden the five-eighth giant captain of the Mary Elisabeth, takes an unholy amount of punishment from the whole crew (minus Luffy) before the latter ends up knocking him up with an attack with "the power of an apocalypse". Before that, he was ground with sand, bathed in Carue's acidic breath, cut, kicked, shot in the eyes, shot with a bazooka, electrocuted by the Clima-Sword...
  • Red Baron: After the Skypiea arc, several of the crew get new bounties and new epithets.
    • Monkey D. Luffy "The Devil"
    • Roronoa Zoro "The Demon Hunter"
    • Nefertari Vivi "Desert Princess"
    • "Renegade" Tashigi
    • "Weather Witch" Nami
    • "Monster" Usopp.
  • Refuge in Audacity: During Smoker's, Hina's, and Tashigi's tribunal, Tashigi boldly (and falsely) claims to have been a spy for the Strawhat crew for the last five years, all the while sabotaging anyone who tried to stand against them.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Luffy unleashing the power of the Rumble-Rumble Fruit after the Franky Family almost kills Usopp on accident.
    • The rest of the Straw Hats relentlessly hunt them down in the days following.
  • Sapient Ship: The Going Merry has a water spirit inhabiting it. It's later revealed to look just like a young Kaya.
  • Schmuck Bait: Aisa claims this about leaving her alone in a room full of Devil Fruits she was told not to touch.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Tashigi's reasons for both saving the Strawhats at Alabasta along with ordering medical attention for them and later letting Zoro go. In both cases, she insists they're good people who don't deserve to die.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Several Members of the Franky Family flee Water 7 after the disastrous attempt to rob the Straw Hats.
  • Seen It All: While not quite to that point yet, Nami points out what it says about her life that a giant toad carrying a giant duck isn't even that weird anymore.
  • Serial Escalation: The crew's specifications for their ship get increasingly outrageous with each crew member that visits the customer care team, driving them into a drunken stupor. Then, in the morning, Luffy appears and his requests are far more reasonable. Just when the engineers are about to cry in relief, Luffy admits there is one thing he wants for the ship to do: fly.
  • Shock and Awe: Enel, obviously. Luffy too, after the former dies and he eats the regrown Rumble-Rumble Fruit.
    • Mr. Rumble, the spirit of the Rumble Rumble Fruit.
  • Slasher Smile: Mr. Rumble's is described as showing nothing but teeth.
  • Smug Snake: Enel again, Isaac of the Devil Fruit Hunters too.
  • Stealth Pun: Vivi gains the epithet of Desert Princess. While it does fit with her new devil fruit, she also is a princess of a desert kingdom.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Chopper has this reaction when he and Zoro have to find their way out of a maze-like swamp.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Everyone. Luffy, learning all three Colors of Haki, and figuring out Moon Step, through sheer force of will and eating the Rumble-Rumble Fruit. Vivi, eating and slowly mastering the Sand-Sand Fruit along with awakening Conqueror's Haki. Nami, training in swordsmanship under Zoro and stealing Ohm's sword. Usopp, eating the Toad Toad Fruit (a poisonous model), Carue eating a devil fruit...
    • Luffy actually takes so many that at the end of the Skypiea arc, despite being so injured he needs a crutch and Robin's help to get around, Smoker acknowledges he no longer has a chance against Luffy.
    • Special mention goes to Pagaya, who nearly becomes a Memetic Badass despite being a minor character in canon.
    • More recently Zoro has awakened Observation Haki and Aisa ate a Devil Fruit.
  • To the Pain: Hamilton is very descriptive of what he will do to Foxy after they have finished shooting him, with his friends offering areas to shoot because they know it won't take.
  • Training from Hell: Zoro is a bad teacher and Nami is a bad student so her training is mostly them sparring (read: Zoro kicking her ass until Nami figures out what to do).
  • Tranquil Fury: When hearing Haraden speak about his slavery business, Luffy is completely and utterly calm, even when he uses his powers to paralyze the man and push him overboard.
  • Twin Threesome Fantasy: Sanji, in his desperate need to prove to himself that he can outdo Luffy, ends up revealing the warehouse holding the massive amount of gold held by the crew to the Franky Family after meeting Mozu and Kiwi.
  • Unkempt Beauty: Luffy notes multiple times that a woman isn't wearing makeup, looks an awful mess, and is the most beautiful he's ever seen them.
  • Up to Eleven: What happens whenever someones Devil 'awakens' from sleep after they were eaten. Mr Rumble himself states they are in a whole new league from normal ones.
    • Luffy has awakened the Rumble Rumble Fruit, a fruit that when unawakened is called one of the invincibles, now it's awakened all other unawakened Logia's might as well bend over and kiss their asses goodbye.
    • In Chapter 30 Luffy uses an amount of power equivalent to the apocalypse. Mr Rumbles response?
    "Well, it's a start."
  • Villainous Breakdown: Enel's begins while facing Gan Fall after the latter ate the Metal-Metal Fruit. It goes downhill from here.
  • Walking Spoiler: Mr. Rumble.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Most of the Water 7 mercenaries are (relatively) weak but make up for it with group tactics and utilizing enemy weaknesses.
  • Wham Episode: Chapter 35 big time.
  • Wham Line:
    • Chapter 30:
    Vivi: We kill them.
    • The receipt was for over a thousand tons of high quality dynamite. Bought and paid for by the Galley-La company.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Berrit ate the Stomp Stomp Fruit. He stomps things.
    • Conis ate the Call Call Fruit, she calls animals from wherever, it's currently limited to birds right now though.
      • Conis also called a really big wolf in chapter 30.
  • Worf Had the Flu: During Water 7, most of the Straw Hat's were badly injured by a massive bomb Lucci had detonated.
  • Worthy Opponent: Crocodile ends up respecting Luffy's determination. He even offers to let Luffy leave because it'd been so long since he had such a great battle and thought killing a half-dead Luffy would be a shame.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Lucci singles out Aisa as his first victim (of many) if Robin reveals who he actually is.
    • One of the Water 7 mercenaries threatens to kill Aisa. Then later reveals she's getting paid to kill her anyway.
  • Wrench Wench: Conis is a rather skilled dial mechanic.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: Sanji pulls one when several mercenaries try to kill Usopp who's still in Intensive Care.
