One Piece Wiki

"Even More Chaos! Blackbeard Teach Invades" is the 444th episode of the One Piece anime.

Short Summary

While Luffy and his allies continue fighting on Level 4 of Impel Down, Buggy and Mr. 3 reach Level 2 and release the prisoners there to cause a riot to cover their escape. Meanwhile, Blackbeard arrives at the prison and begins attacking the guards to force his way in. Hannyabal, en route to Level 4, is overwhelmed by these developments until Magellan reveals that he has suppressed the riot on Level 2 and is releasing Shiryu to deal with Blackbeard. Shiryu, immediately after being released and given his sword, kills all the guards sent to release him.

Long Summary

Buggy and Galdino are hiding from the guards at Level 2. After making sure that there are no guards left, they go around opening cells and letting prisoners free so that they can create a riot. At Level 4, New Kama citizens storm up the stairs. The escapees (Luffy, Jinbe, Crocodile, Ivankov, Inazuma, Bon Kurei and Daz Bonez) attack the guards, trying to get to Level 3. Ivankov and Luffy throw the guards in the lake of fire. In one of the jailer rooms, Hannyabal freaks out, losing his chances to be Chief Warden.

Meanwhile, Ace is taken into custody by Onigumo, getting his last chance to see the sky. Back at Level 4, the escapees throw more guards into the ocean of flames.

At the main entrance, the Blackbeard Pirates enter Impel Down; sucking down guards and gates, to enter the Great Prison. At Level 2, many of the rioters are being poisoned by Magellan. Magellan decides to let Shiryu out of his cell, to defeat Blackbeard and his crew, while Magellan himself gets rid of the escapees at Level 4.

Anime Notes

  • Buggy and Galdino, while not breaking the 4th wall, do reference that they were the comic relief hence implying that they know they are in an anime.
  • In the scene after Blackbeard's attacks, the Impel Down's flag is colored with different colors than the initial. This time, the center is colored with red.
