"The Supernovas Strike Back! The Mission to Tear Apart the Emperors" is the 1026th episode of the One Piece anime.
Orochi and Fukurokuju continue to burn down Onigashima. Orochi tells Fukurokuju to bring him to the explosive storage, which he agrees to, and Orochi continues to laugh about destroying the island and killing everybody on it. The remaining Nine Red Scabbards run through the hallways, worried about the fire, when they run into Orochi. Angry, they prepare to fight him, but Fukurokuju tells him to run, intending to fight them himself. However, Orochi refuses, and begins yelling at the Scabbards for chasing him down over 20 years. They reply that all they care about is defending Wano Country, and no longer care about his issues.
They instruct Orochi to let them pass, but he refuses, stating that he wants to kill them here. Preparing to fight, he transforms into his full Yamata no Orochi form, proudly calling himself the Shogun of Wano Country and stating that he's done nothing wrong. The fight begins, and the Scabbards quickly dispatch of Orochi, with Denjiro, Kikunojo, and Raizo dispatching of one head each, Kawamatsu dispatching of three, and Kin'emon cutting off Orochi's main head, all while Orochi yells about being in the right. As Orochi falls to the floor, the Scabbards continue down the hallway, leaving Raizo behind to battle Fukurokuju.
Meanwhile, Luffy and Kaidou continue to fight on the rooftop. They trade blows, neither getting a clean hit, and destroy the terrain around them. Eventually, Kaidou manages to hit Luffy and, though he blocks it, launches his across the rooftop, causing explosions in the floors below and knocking the Scabbards to their knees. With Luffy on the ground, Kaidou remarks that he's still not truly fighting seriously, and reminds the Worst Generation members that he threatened to take everything away from them. Big Mom agrees that they need to die, and resolves with Kaidou to defeat them all with the next attack. However, Luffy stands back up, surprising Kaidou, and announces that he'll show the Emperors how determined they truly are.
The Emperors launch simultaneous attacks on the Worst Generation, with Kaidou attacking Luffy and Big Mom attacking the rest, which manage to send Luffy and Trafalgar Law across the rooftop. Luffy tries to attack Big Mom from behind, but is blocked by Kaidou, and all the Worst Generation are knocked to the ground, injured and exhausted. Kaidou monologues about the worthless of determination and friendship as the Worst Generation members slowly stand back up, and Luffy manages to punch him back. The fighting resumes, and as Kaidou manages to pin down Luffy, the other Worst Generation members fight off Big Mom, trapping Zeus inside a box of Eustass Kid's creation. Roronoa Zoro then cuts Prometheus in half, causing Big Mom to fall and allowing Killer to relentlessly attack Napoleon. With Big Mom now separated from her Homies, Kid attacks her, launching her in the air. Law throws a rock into her, pushing her onto the edge of the island, and Zoro cuts off the ground under her, throwing her off the roof. However, without her Homies to help, she just falls off, unable to fly back up.
