Jango kneels beside the fallen pirates and starts to hypnotize them. Once the hypnotism takes effect", the pirates became wild and ravenous, and foaming at their mouths, they charge at the Straw Hats. One pounds down a cliff with his fist. Zoro says that he and Luffy will handle it, but Luffy was also hypnotized, becoming a wild animal himself. Luffy charges down the slope and uses his Gum Gum Gatling technique to plow through the pirates with ease. Luffy keeps charging, and soon runs past the pirates," causing Jango to fear that he will be the next target. Luffy takes the bow of Kuro's ship in an attempt to kill him", but Jango hypnotizes Luffy, and so Luffy falls asleep, the bow falling on top of him and squishing him as he does this. With Luffy out of the way, Jango prepares for the next attack. Seeing the pirates are defeated, he calls for Sham and Buchi and orders them to attack. They turn out to be cowards, but after some heavy persuasion they charge for Zoro. Zoro blocks their claws with his sword," and engages in a great fight with the two Nyaban Brothers. Zoro slashes Buchi through the lowersection", but finds out Butchie has a very thin waist. He sits on top of Zoro and Sham leaps down, but Zoro manages to avoid the bone-crushing attack that leaves a crater. Buchi then uses his cat-like abilities to steal Zoro's two swords, and throws them away. Zoro has no chance to grab them and faces another assault by the Nyaban Brothers. Usopp decides to help and fires at the brothers, but Zoro blocks it with his back, yelling at Nami and Usopp to not get themselves killed. Nami then runs for Zoro's swords, picking them up, but Jango reacts swiftly and slashes her in the shoulder with his chakram. Just as Jango and the others are about to kill the Straw Hats, Kuro appears," and is not happy at all that his plan is foiled.
