Chapter 91 is titled "Darts".
Luffy attempts to use Arlong's teeth against him, but does not have the strength to use them like the fish-man can. Arlong then starts overwhelming Luffy with his teeth and nose, but Luffy does not back down and swears to destroy his nose.
Arlong gets angry at Luffy for using his crewmate as a shield, but Luffy replies that the fish-man did the same to his enemies. Johnny and Yosaku state that Luffy said he had an idea for beating Arlong, and they and Sanji wonder what it is. Arlong attacks Luffy by snapping the teeth in his hands, but Luffy avoids his lunge and kicks him in the jaw, sending another set of his teeth flying out. As Arlong grows another set, Luffy places the fish-man's teeth into his own mouth, and Johnny and Yosaku are appalled that this is his idea. An insulted Arlong manages to give Luffy a small bite in the shoulder, and Johnny and Yosaku tell Luffy to stop playing around, but Luffy denies their accusation. He then blocks Arlong's strike with a large piece of rock, but Arlong's strength sends Luffy tumbling backwards. Arlong then bites Luffy right in the chest, but quickly responds by biting Arlong's shoulder with the fish-man's own teeth.
The two combatants separate from each other, and Luffy laughs at what he did as Arlong's teeth pop out of his mouth. However, Arlong says that Luffy's jaw is too weak to replicate a shark's bite, and he tries to demonstrate the power of a shark's jaw as he bites into Luffy's right arm at the elbow. Luffy manages to respond by throwing Arlong into the ground, allowing him to loosen the fish-man's jaw and free his arm while keeping it intact. Genzo states that Luffy could have lost his arm had he been trapped for even a second longer. Arlong gets up from the ground, and in the blink of an eye he hits Luffy as he dives into the sea. Usopp tells Luffy where the fish-man went, and Arlong says that no one can compare to his speed underwater as he leaps out of the water like a missile, hitting Luffy and injuring him before sending him spinning away. Arlong crashes through the tower wall, while Luffy tumbles to the ground. He then uses the same attack again, and Luffy dodges him, causing his nose to plant itself in the ground. Sanji is shocked at how strong his nose is, and Arlong uses the attack twice more, successfully hitting Luffy both times before going back underwater. Sanji tells Luffy to get away before Arlong can attack him again, but Luffy stands in front of the pool, declaring that he will catch Arlong and destroy his nose.
