Chapter is titled "Arriving in Alabasta". Smoker moves to arrest Ace, when suddenly, a starving Luffy runs into the restaurant, propelling both Smoker and. In the anime/manga the first reveal of luffy and ace was during the alabasta arc when luffy was being hunted by Smoker and Ace just happens to be at the scene. Luffy grabs a lot of meat, but flees when Smoker stands back up and gives chase. Ace hops onto the ship and meets the crew, but does not stay long and gives.
Luffy learns about this as well as the fact that Ace is being sent for execution and comes up with a plan to break into Impel Down and save his brother. Only he had many obstacles, one of them being Blackbeard himself who entered the prison to recruit crew members for his own plans. This is the second time Luffy and Blackbeard meet, this time he realizes that this guy is the "Blackbeard" that Ace told him about back in Alabasta.
After a brief scuffle, Luffy and some others were able to escape the prison however they failed at breaking Ace out. Ace was already on his way to be executed at the Marine HQ - Marineford. The Marines gather their entire forces to defend their base as the public execution for Ace occurs. Then, the true reason for Ace's execution was revealed Ace is the son of the Pirate King. Roger had a child with a woman in the South Blue.
This woman carried the baby for nearly two years, after Roger's execution. The Marines didn't learn of Ace's heritage until recently from their version of the secret service called Cipher Pol. I'd like to clarify as well, I won't be delving too much into Whitebeard despite him being a major aspect of this arc.
A bit later after this Whitebeard crashes Marineford, and we're shown how Ace became a part of his crew. However he suddenly gets a phone call by a Mr.
Prince, recognized by the crew as Sanji, who starts off by imitating the phone call in Little Garden. Sanji makes Crocodile believe he got caught in front of the Rain Dinners and Crocodile goes to check out the situation in front of the casino.
Chopper acts as a decoy, using his powers to avoid Crocodile while Sanji destroys the bridge between the Rain Dinners and the rest of Rainbase to ensure that Crocodile can not return to Rain Dinners right away. With Smoker's suggestion, Sanji kicks the right Bananawani with the key, making it cough up both the key and a large wax ball. Sanji defeats a Bananawani. As it turns out, the wax ball was created by Mr.
However, Sanji forces him to make a copy of the key using his powers, and releases everyone. When Crocodile returns, he sees that everyone is gone, as they had escaped by going underwater with Sanji and Zoro carrying Luffy and Smoker through the water because of their Devil Fruit powers. Chopper picks up the crew with a Moving Crab named Hasamia friend of Matsuge. Smoker decides not to pursue the Straw Hats to repay the favor to them for saving his life and instead gives the order to have nearby Marine forces depart for Alabasta immediately, heading out to their ship and leaving Tashigi in charge.
As the Straw Hats run away, Crocodile tries to snatch Vivi from the crab, but she is saved by Luffy who lets himself get dragged off by the crab, promising to meet them in Alubarna.
Luffy is defeated by Crocodile for the first time. Crocodile says that he will humor Luffy for three minutes, but will finish him off once that time is up. Luffy attacks Crocodile, but discovers that he can not hit Crocodile as he just turns into sand thanks to the ability of his devil fruit, the Suna Suna no Mi.
Crocodile also shows off some attacks as well, one of which dries Luffy's arm out, but Luffy takes water from his small barrel to restore his strength.
Once the three minutes are up, Crocodile creates a sandstorm and sends it off to Yuba, where Toto is, and explains that he was the one who was sending storms there every day.
Luffy yells for him to stop it but Crocodile impales him with his hook during his distress. When Luffy proves he is still alive, Crocodile leaves him in quicksand to die. She then leaves Luffy in the hands of Pell, telling Pell that Luffy is responsible for the safe return of Vivi.
Edit The rest of the Straw Hat crew is on the way to Alubarna, only to discover that the Sandora River is in their path and that moving crabs can not swim. They try anyway, but they almost drown and are attacked by a Sandora Rare Catfish. However, the fish is defeated by the Kung-Fu Dugongs they met before.
The Dugongs bring them on the back of the fish to the other side of the river where they are met by Karoo and the Spot Billed Duck Troopsthe fastest animals on Alabasta.

They are forced to pursue them in a hasty decision trying to figure out which one is Vivi. Bon Kurei and Sanji fight. The real Vivi however hid behind a rock and waited for the Straw Hats to distract the officer agents to buy her time.
She tries to stop the rebel army, but a dust cloud caused by a Baroque Works agent under cover in the royal army prevents the Rebel Army from seeing her. She is covered by Karoo to not get trampled down by the rebel army. As she awakes she is greeted by Usopp, but she sees through Mr. Karoo runs off with her climbing the steep walls of Alubarna but still is pursued by Mr.

Crocodile does not take this form seriously and pays for it when Luffy fires a water bubble completely soaking Crocodile, and hits him with a Gomu Gomu no Bazooka. While the fight continues, Miss All Sunday takes the nails painfully out of Cobra's body and cuffs him with her powers to force the King to the location of Pluton.

Tashigi is later informed by one of her men that Miss All Sunday was originally known as " Nico Robin ", who received a bounty of 79, as a child because she was believed to have been responsible for the sinking of six warships.
As Tashigi struggles for her sword, Crocodile appears, calling her superior Smoker "cowardly" and mocking her and the Marines' ideals of " Justice " before departing again. Tashigi is left crying confused as to what action she should take, and angry she is not strong enough.
Right then Vivi thinks about the only place that would be useful for launching such an attack: Usopp calls all the crew mates to the clock tower, but they turn up on different levels the top can only be reached through a secret staircase at the baseand Pell is shot down by Miss Father's Daywho, alongside Mr.
The Straw Hats take advantage of being on different levels of the tower as Nami plans on flinging Vivi to the top level of the tower through multiple stations each assisted by a Straw Hats member.
She reaches the cannon and defeats Mr. Just when it seems everything for naught Pell shows up and carries the bomb off into the sky, allowing it to explode high and harmlessly above the city while sacrificing himself. However, despite the bomb's explosion knocking the soldiers over, they simply get up and continue the battle. Desperately, Vivi repeatedly yells for them to stop fighting, but her voice is not heard.
Crocodile soon arrives but does not get the information he wants from the stone. He turns his back on Nico Robin and attacks her while she tries an assassination attempt of her own but fails.
