"Hody's Attack - The Beginning of the Vengeful Plan" is the 535th episode of the One Piece anime.
Luffy is still on his way to the Sea Forest with Shirahoshi, when he notices something going to the Ryugu Palace, which is revealed to be Hody and Vander Decken IX. Meanwhile, Robin waits for the Sea Bus, when many Ammo Knights appear and tell her that she needs to go with them. Robin then incapacitates her attackers and leaves aboard the Sea Bus.
Franky finds the Thousand Sunny with the help of his former master's brother, Den. Franky sees Jinbe and he asks Den why he is here and Den replies that he is waiting for someone. Hody and Decken enter the palace after one of the human pirates opened the gate. When they realize Shirahoshi is not there, Decken leaves and heads after her.
