The "Alabasta Saga" (アラバスタ編,Arabasuta-hen?) (usually referred to as the "Baroque Works Saga") is the second saga in the manga and anime, One Piece. It follows the Straw Hat Pirates and their efforts to help Princess Nefertari Vivi try to reach her homeland before a massive war breaks out. However, an evil organization called Baroque Works will stop at nothing to keep the crew from reaching Alabasta. This saga is made up of five story arcs.
The Straw Hat Pirates finally enter the Grand Line, only to be targeted by the criminal organization Baroque Works. They meet Nefertari Vivi, and decide to help save her country, Alabasta. Making their way across the Grand Line, they fend off Baroque Works' assassination attempts while meeting Luffy's older brother, Portgas D. Ace, as well as a pair of giants named Dorry and Brogy, and gaining a new crew member: Tony Tony Chopper.
With the fate of Alabasta hanging in the balance, the saga climaxes with a full-out confrontation between the Straw Hats and Baroque Works, led by Mr. 0, aka Crocodile, a Shichibukai. After Baroque Works is defeated, Luffy and Zoro earn a bounty of 100,000,000, and 60,000,000, respectively.
