However, as Monkey D. Luffy continuously defied Tesoro's authority, Tesoro came to hate the young pirate more and more, utilizing everything he had in an attempt to regain control.
Ultimately, Tesoro's constant claim that he would make the Straw Hats his property and gloating about becoming a god infuriated Luffy to no end, which led Luffy to overwhelm and defeat Tesoro. World Nobles Edit Due to the fact that a World Noble purchased Stella and abused her, leading to her death, Tesoro came to detest them.

Sunday, June 30th, Of course, the pirate in his tale was Hiruluk himself thus he made his jolly roger have cherry blossoms on it and he did create the method for his dream to come true, but his life was cut short by the corrupt government that controlled Drum Island before he could make it happen.
His death sparked a chain of events within the government that led the King's second Dalton to pull a coup on the king Wapol, believing in Hiruluk's final speech of how the country could return to its former glory. Cherry blossoms symbolize renewal, as it did to Hiriluk's health and Dalton's country. Chopper, upon seeing the "tree", burst into tears over how his father's dream had come true and that the country had been healed of its torment.
The Drum Island Arc is often overshadowed by the later Alabasta, Enies Lobby and Whitebeard War Arcs, but it manages to give one of the most satisfactory conclusion to a story in any form of media in recent years.
Best of all, after Enies Lobby, we find out the island has taken this powerful symbol to heart by renaming itself Sakura Cherry Blossom Kingdom. The final scene can be seen here.
We get to see some good brotherly bonding, including an arm wrestling match which ends with them crushing the water barrel they're holding it on. In particular, the part where Vivi sees Crocodile sent flying and remembers despite all her worries about Crocodile's manipulation of the country, Luffy with his usual enthusiasm simply says "So all I have to do to Crocodile, is kick his ass, right?
Then the True Companions pondering how the hell Crocodile was sent flying with Usopp replying with great joy that finally, Luffy won. Tashigi's batallion of marines had the Straw Hat Pirates, exhausted and mortally wounded after defeating Baroque Works, cornered and dead to rights.
Yet the young Marine is filled with so much respect for them having saved Alabasta from Crocodile's genocidal war that she ordered her men to stand down; sternly warning that anyone who dares to arrest them will personally answer to her.
Tashigi may hold a vendetta against pirates, yes, but the bravery and valor of the Straw Hats moved her so much that even she was able to see them for the heroes that they are. And this is no small leap of faith, either. What does he tell Tashigi after the whole mess is over? Basically, "You called it as you saw it. You have my support. These two have principles. And as a man and a father, I humbly kneel before you in gratitude for saving our country and my little girl.
Taking the fall proves his friendship which was previously suspect to the crew, and Luffy proclaims he won't ever forget him as he, Chopper and Usopp bawl their eyes out.
Even Sanji who is generally one of the more impassive crewmembers sheds some tears, keeping in line with him recognizing Bon as a worthy opponent earlier on.
Vivi telling the Straw Hats that she must stay behind and hoping that they will consider her a friend if they meet again. While they are unable to say yes for fear of her being labeled a criminal, in one of the most iconic moments of the series, they show her the "marks of friendship" on their arms, and she immediately understands and shows hers. While the moment could be a Tear Jerkerit is touching to see them acknowledge her as a friend.
The gang standing in a circle on the Going Merry with their left arm wing in case of Carue extended as a way of reinforcing their friendship. Even more so in the anime, when a heavily wounded Carue tries to save Vivi from Mr. This in turn gives him the willpower to actually fly towards the edge of the cliff, which was just out of reach. Sky Island Saga Jaya Arc After their first encounter with Bellamy, the big guy Luffy had a brief spat with assures Nami that, despite not fighting back, Luffy and Zoro won by refusing to rise to the bar's taunts.
He then states that whatever Bellamy says, pirates will never stop dreaming. Before, he refused to fight Bellamy under Nami's promise, but once his new friends were harmed, all hell broke loose for Luffy. Skypiea Arc Everyone's reaction to hearing Luffy ring the Golden Bell for the first time in years. Montblanc Cricket's reaction to hearing Luffy ring the bell in Skypiea stands out the most.
Especially his response to the Saruyama Alliance, who are worried that their association is at an end. It was to tell Montblanc Cricket that the City of Gold he was searching for, the object of scandal that haunted his family for generations, was in the sky. Luffy knew that if he hadn't, the Saruyama Alliance would have continued to search the sea until they died!
Nola the giant snake was alive and still very small when she last heard the sound of the bell, which she grew to love. She cries when she finally hears it again after long years of waiting. It's also implied that her intense desire to hear the bell once more was the cause of her aggressiveness, as she can be seen happily spending time with Aisa, Laki and Conis in a Where Are They Now Cover and even working as a bungee jump attraction in Rubber Band Land after the Time Skip.
In the flashback from years ago, Calgara's people are furious with Noland for cutting down the trees that are supposed to house the spirits of their ancestors. But then, one of Noland's lieutenants patiently explains they cut the trees down because they contained The Plague that had been infecting Calgara's people; they did it to save their lives. When Noland and Calgara separately realize the truth, they each find a way to make amends: Made better when we see an image of Noland and Calgara together laughing, something that both had been denied when they died.
Episode of the anime, when Zoro goes out of his way to catch Robin from falling after she is blasted by Eneru's lightning. Standard practice, until you remember that Zoro was the only one of the crew that had remained leery of Robin's presence up to that point. Seeing the Straw Hats, Skypeians and Shandians have a party around a blazing fire.
Considering that all parties were in some way hostile to another, particularly the Shandians and the Skypeians who were at war for years, this is really heartwarming. Hell, Zoro had time to have a beer with Braham who he had previously foughtand Conis tended to a heavily injured Wiper. Wiper learns that since both the Shandians' and Skypieans' home islands were destroyed, the two peoples now have to live together.
He seems about ready to start fighting again, until Gan Fall points out that everyone on both sides is so tired they've all decided to call off the war and have a big party instead. When Eneru temporarily disposes of Luffy, he confronts Nami aboard his ship and offers her to join him to find gold or he'll kill her. Without hesitation, she tells him to shove it, stating that all the treasure in the world is worthless if her friends can't be there with her. While Nami's loyalty to the Straw Hats was no longer in doubt, especially at this point in the series, it was clear that she now considered them all True Companions.
Water 7 Saga Long Ring Long Land Arc After being bombed and hit relentlessly by Foxy in the Davy Jones Games, Luffy continually stood up again and again, shocking his opponent and the audience, leaving many wondering how he could still fight.
And Luffy tells them: To save my nakama I will fight to the death!!! For those who don't know, the winning team of the Davy Jones Games can select a member from the losing team to be their new teammate. Even the guys on Foxy's side thought it was this when they saw Luffy's determination to fight on.
And they had to be reminded by Foxy they're cheering for the wrong side. The countdown for Foxy to be sent flying after Luffy used a shard of mirror to reflect his own Noro Noro Beam on him and give him a few powerful wallops as he goes up to the helm of the ship. It starts with Zoro counting own the seconds until Foxy's beam wears out, then Sanji, then Usopp leads the crowd on Foxy's side to join in as Foxy slowly gives motion, and when it reaches zero, Foxy goes sky high as Luffy cheers his victory.
Made even better, after Luffy won and woke up, he was surrounded by all the Straw Hats, smiling at him gratefully. But Zoro's line was the one that made the most impact.
I thought about it. If I left this ship, I'd have no point in being a pirate anymore. A blink and you'll miss it moment comes up in episode with Zoro trying to teach Luffy how to skate. By the end of the episode he's able to stand up without falling down and everyone starts cheering for him, including the hundreds of enemies.
When Chopper is picked by the Foxy Pirates Chopper: I went out to sea because of you! I went out to sea because you asked me to! I wont go with these guys! I'm the doctor of the Straw Hat Pirates Robin comforting a crying Chopper after they were taken in the rematch pretty much showcases how much of a Cool Big Sis Robin is to Chopper. Every time Luffy insults Foxy, the Davy Back pirates are quick to comfort their boss, and call Luffy out.
After defeating the Davy Back pirates and stealing their flag, Luffy decides to make them a new one, so they can continue being pirates. Foxy is really thankful for this, right until the part when the flag looks messed up due to Luffy's abyssal painting skills. Incidentally, this scene creates a Brick Joke going back over episodes when Luffy tries to paint the Straw Hats' original jolly roger.
Same situation as before: She also yells at the onlookers to quit gawking, clearly aware of how much Usopp's pride is hurt. It doesn't hinder any of the terrible things to come, but it shows all the best sides of Nami. Franky's flashback to his mentor Tom: He convinced the judge to postpone the sentence by building a Sea Train. And so the judge did by ten years. At the time, Water 7 was very poor because it was too remote for anyone to travel to, along with the Sea Kings in the ocean.
It took ten years, but Tom successfully built the Sea Train, dubbed the "Puffing Tom" and the rail system along with it. The response to the Puffing Tom's launch was incredible, and even the stoic Iceburg was brought to tears out of pride and at the sheer joy it gave its citizens.
One Piece, Volume The Eleven Supernovas by Eiichiro Oda
Perhaps Tom's greatest accomplishment wasn't building a ship that could cross the ends of the Grand Line, but saving his dying city, and making it thrive.
The worst part is that the world will never acknowledge that over building a ship the Pirate King used. In the end, both of his apprentices inherited key traits from Tom: Franky was taught to always be proud of his work; this motivated him to ultimately build the Thousand Sunny. And Iceburg, like Tom, wanted to see Water 7 thrive. One of the last things we see from him is a plan no less ambitious than Puffing Tom: These are probably two of the greatest maritime architects the world has ever seen, and they're also in their own ways two of the most compassionate men ever seen as well.
While also sad given that he's being manipulated by Spandamthe fact that Tom unhesitatingly uses a pardon that would have saved him from a death sentence to protect Franky instead. After four years of believing that Franky was dead, Iceburg and Franky had a little, bitter reunion. Franky had heard the news of Iceburg accepting a job from the World Government, even though they captured and dragged their father-like figure Tom to Impel Down, and was understandably furious.
However, Iceburg calmly argued that it was Franky's fault for making the weapons that allowed the Government to capture Tom in the first place. Then curiously, he gave Franky the blueprints for the ancient weapon Pluton and told him to leave the island, letting the Government believe that Iceburg had the blueprints and would come after him instead. As Iceburg walked away, he told Franky that though he would never forgive him, he was also glad that Franky was alive, to the point of tears.
In the same scene, Franky gives it right back to Iceburg, declaring that he wouldn't leave the island and leave Iceburg to face the Government on his own. In a sense, Franky's attempts to force Usopp to confront the Going Merry's oncoming death may be seen as a brutal attempt to save his life, out of respect for a man who's willing to go so far for his ship, but too stubborn to realize that she's doomed. Additionally, Franky's demeanor changes considerably when he discovers that Usopp saw the Merry's Klabautermann; he sound genuinely impressed of the love between Usopp and the Merry, and goes from trying to convince Usopp that what he is doing is suicidal to trying to make him understand that what he's doing will hurt Merry's heart.
The previous becomes even more meaningful after we discover that Tom, Franky's boss, regarded all the ships he ever made as his children, and became very upset after Franky disowned the battleships he made after they were used to attack Water 7 - something that Franky regrets doing.
No wonder why he deeply respected Usopp for how much he cares for his ship. Later on, while the crew is directed towards Eines Lobby, Iceburg finds the Merry, and sees for himself the cracked keel. Remember, Iceburg said to Luffy, in no uncertain terms, that he wouldn't have repaired the Merry because it would have been pointless; but when he hears the Merry speak about how she wants to go with the Straw Hats one last time, he fixes her as best as he can.
No questions, no hesitation, nothing; he just helps the ship to return to her family. A small moment from Mayor Iceberg, dovetailing with Moment of Awesome: Then he told the story to Nami, which proved to be the turning point, as they finally understood Robin's motives.
From then on, the Straw Hats dedicated themselves to rescuing Robin. The marines coming to rescue T-Bone. Enies Lobby Arc Specific examples are below, but the whole arc is one, really: Assemble a makeshift army, declare war on the world without hesitation, and defeat an as of then undefeatable squad of superhuman killers. If that isn't the definition of selfless love, then there isn't one.
That scene in the Enies Lobby arc. You know, the one where the Straw Hats face Robin after she ran away from them and willingly gave herself over to the government for their safety.
She yells, almost on the verge of tears, that no matter what, no matter how much they care for her, they'll eventually see her as a burden and abandon her.
At which point Luffy proves how far they'd go for her when he orders Sogeking to shoot down the World Government flag, effectively declaring war on the entire world. This triggers some of the most heartwarming dialogue of the series. I still haven't heard it from your mouth! I thought wishing for it was forbidden Nobody would allow me that If I'm allowed to declare my wish Keep in mind that the Straw Hats saved her out of sheer apathy for her past.
It wasn't "We love you despite your burden. They never even bothered to ask her what it was! They simply chose to make her burden their burden. Their actions up to this point so clearly resemble those when Nami officially joined the crew during the Arlong Park Arc. This is also the scene where Robin realized she had found the friends that Saul said she would, and that, after twenty years, she had finally found her place in life. Right after Robin lays out just how vast the danger of associating with her is, and Spandam outlines just how many nations are against them, Luffy's response is wonderful.
I understand exactly who Robin's enemy is. Shoot down that flag. Franky's moved reaction to Luffy and Robin's exchange, which doubles as a funny moment, could also qualify.
He even sobs "I love you guys! An absurdly touching scene takes place between Usopp and Sanji. Usopp, having left the crew out of fear that they will eventually leave him behind because he's so weak, is saved from Jabra by Sanji, who informs him that he'll take over the fight. He then tells Usopp "There are certain things I can do that you can't.
Just like there are certain things YOU can do that I can't!
One Piece, Volume 51: The Eleven Supernovas
The scene after Luffy manages to defeat Lucci. Luffy lies on the ground, so exhausted he can't even move. He breathes in deeply After his fight with Lucci, Luffy lies on the ground unable to move an inch.
Usopp cheers him on to keep trying even taking off his Sogeking mask! Fridge Logic also doubles this up as a heartwarming moment for Luffy: Near the end of the Enies Lobby arc, when the Straw Hats jump into the ocean to find that the Going Merry miraculously appeared to help them escape.
Back to the sea of adventure again!! I came to take you home!! Let's not forget the funeral of the Going Merry. Seriously, the scene made you cry over a freakin' ship. But I was happy. You always treated me well All because of you! The scene where Robin is first inducted as an archaeologist. They actually had a celebration for her.
This is beautiful because Robin at that point had no friends, and her aunt would always mistreat her. To see that there those on the island that actually care for her shows that even she wasn't completely unloved. When Robin first meets her mother and holds her hand despite the entire island of Ohara going straight to hell, she says: I've wanted to do this for a long time.
Saul, a Marine deserter who purposed himself to make sure Robin survives, carries Robin explaining that they can't turn back due to the Marine warships on that side. Despite her home being targeted for destruction, despite her being torn from her mother again, and despite the fact that those alone are a damn traumatic thing for an 8-year old child to experience, Saul gives this heartwarming gem, even if she's too young to understand the full implications of what that means: Your mother is great!
