"Monsters Appear! Don't Touch the Whitebeard Pirates" is the 145th episode of the One Piece anime.
A turtle-like Sea King surfaces near Nami and her crew. The Masira Pirates are also frightened and scream for their captain, who is underwater confronting Luffy. Robin finds that the air hoses of the crew's diving suit were in the monster's mouth, and deduces that Luffy, Sanji and Zoro were eaten by the monster. The monster pulls the Going Merry via its air hoses and tries to pull it underwater, and Nami was about to cut the hoses to free the ship, but the sky suddenly changes to night.
The Masira Pirates fear that the sudden change of the time of day was a bad omen, and that they should reel their captain in immediately. Luffy surfaces unconscious, and Zoro and Sanji both surface soon later. They all suggest to set sail and leave immediately, but Masira hops on their ship and prevents them from leaving. However, one of the Masira Pirates points out that, to the horror of the Straw Hat Pirates, the sudden night was caused by giangantic creatures blocking the sun. The Straw Hat Pirates flee.
Later, Masira is seen briefly on the ship before the Straw Hat Pirates kick him off. Nami is disappointed that Luffy, Zoro and Sanji did not find any clues about Skypiea during the salvage. Sanji points out that the ship looks as if it were attacked, or it had been destroyed by battle. Then, Robin reveals that she had taken an Eternal Pose from the Masira Pirates to Jaya. So, Luffy commands his crew to turn the ship to Jaya to ask others about Skypiea. They soon realize, however, that they cannot stay in Jaya for too long or else the Log Pose will adapt and point elsewhere.
Meanwhile, Mohji and Cabaji are in an island resembling a skull. They are searching for the treasure of Captain John. However, they fail to find any treasure. Back on the ship, Buggy reveals a plan that involves waiting for Luffy to gain a reputation on the Grand Line so Buggy can receive a greater reputation by defeating him.
Portgas D. Ace appears on Buggy's ship, intimidating Cabaji. Ace suddenly falls asleep, and Mohji suggests taking Ace out while he is asleep, but Buggy refuses to harm Ace out of fear of what Ace's boss, Whitebeard, will do in retaliation. Ace wakes up soon and starts a party on Buggy's ship. Meanwhile, the Straw Hat Pirates continue travelling towards Jaya.
