After fighting Lucci in Gear Third for a minute, Luffy is left to cope with the technique's side effect of his body shrinking to a fraction of its original size for around the same time. At the other end of the Bridge of Hesitation, Franky takes on Funkfreed, Spandam's sword infused with the powers of a devil fruit, which allow it to partly or completely turn into an elephant. At the islands entry, the two giants arrive, carrying the Galley-La foremen and the Franky Family on their shoulders. Instead of finding a means of escape, however, they are greeted by the cannon muzzles of three of the Buster Call's battleships. Equally desperate is the situation in the underground passage, where the group has been caught in the flooding-in water. Just as they are about to give up hope, a mermaid comes to their rescue.
