One Piece 698

Doflammingo arrives at Punk Hazard, while the Straw Hats and Law discuss their plan.

Punk Hazard is suddenly a popular destination.

Back at Punk Hazard, the G5 Marines have donned the gas suits of Ceasar's underlings to rescue their petrified comrades, and Baby 5 and Buffalo's bodies have been left behind. Suddenly, Doflammingo arrives from the sky and returns Baby 5 and Buffalo's heads to their bodies. Finding that the pirates are gone, Doflammingo attacks Smoker and his marines.

Out on the sea, Law and the Straw Hats plan out their next move. The ship is headed to Dressrosa to destroy Doflammingo's Smile factory in order to weaken Kaidou's forces. It also so happens that Kinemon has a friend that is being held at Dressrosa.

Back a Punk Hazard, Doflammingo is beating up Smoker trying to find out where the Straw Hats are headed, but suddenly Kuzan (formerly Admiral Aokiji) appears behind Doflammingo telling him to get off of Smoker.


Doflammingo makes it to Punk Hazard, but he is too late to catch Law and the Straw Hats. Doflammingo ends up letting out steam on Smoker and the G5 Marines, but thankfully Kuzan shows up. As many have pointed out, Kuzan was the mystery man traveling on the water towards Punk Hazard. We don't know why Kuzan is heading back to the island where he lost to the battle to Sakazuki, but he's on Smoker's side and I don't know how smart it would be for Doflammingo to take on a former admiral. Doflammingo will likely retreat given that he needs to locate Ceasar and the Straw Hat-Law alliance to save his own behind. Doflammingo is probably going to be the main villain of the next story arc seeing how the Straw Hats and Law are heading to Dressrosa to destroy the Smile factory.


  1. Doflamingo made Jozu, who fought Kuzan evenly for a while, his bitch. Doflamingo can hold (in theory) his ground against an admiral, but little he could gain from it and would be a really tough battle so he will just retreat, maybe a little clash but nothing big.

    Doflamingo has conqueror's haki... Wow.

    One Piece has been on fire these weeks, this chapter was pure gold (Seeing Law interact wit hthe crew is really amusing). Don't you agree?

    1. We don't know who is stronger, but agreed that fighting Kuzan is probably not the best thing for Doflammingo to be doing at the moment.

      I remember someone from Doflammingo's crew mentioned that he was going to be the Pirate King? Given his reputation and power, I actually wasn't that surprised that he had Conquerer's haki.

      One Piece has been picking up after the Punk Hazard arc. Hopefully the Dressrosa arc will build up to be something epic.

  2. Is it just me or Kinnemon is becoming the "new Vivi"?

    1. He's becoming a travelling companion, so in that sense yes.
