"Kaidou's Trump Card - The Tobi Roppo Appear" is the 982nd episode of the One Piece anime.
The Straw Hat Pirates enter Onigashima's torii gate and defeat the guards there. Queen begins the Golden Kagura festivities, and the Tobi Roppo meet to hear their captain's request. The Straw Hats set up to toast Jinbe joining, but after the Nine Red Scabbards and their other allies advance on Onigashima, they decide to wait to celebrate with everyone after they defeat Kaidou, Orochi, and Big Mom.
Kin'emon, the other Scabbards, Law, Hyogoro, and Shishilian discuss how to enter Onigashima's heavily guarded torii gate when they notice that a ship has gone missing. They fear that the Straw Hat Pirates, who went ahead, are in danger, but they suddenly see a huge explosion. Law complains that they always do whatever they want. Luffy jumps from the smoke and crushes the guards with Gomu Gomu no Red Hawk. Zoro, Sanji, Robin, Franky, Brook, and Jinbe also fight off the guards while Nami, Usopp, and Chopper watch from the Thousand Sunny. They decide to have a toast to celebrate Jinbe's arrival. The Scabbards are impressed by their strength. Denjiro credits having such strong allies, and Kin'emon admires Luffy.
On Onigashima, a group of Waiters and Pleasures are partying when one of them crashes through a window with a bunch of liquid. One of them yells at a large creature for not being able to hold a barrel of liquor without crushing it. The creature smashes the barrel with its hands and drops debris. As the pirates try to run away, two women in the next room close the screen doors. In the room, Orochi is playing a game with some young women before catching them and telling them that mess that had been in his way had finally been cleaned up. The women don't understand that he meant the Scabbards being killed, but they laugh and continue to play with the shogun. Outside the room, Fukurokuju stands quietly, and Chome offers him alcohol.
In another room, Queen yells at a cook to bring him more red bean soup. The cook tells him that Big Mom also wants some, and Queen reminds him that he is in charge of the Golden Kagura celebrations and should get priority. Somewhere outside, a masked figure in chains is breaking boulders with their kanabo club. Inside, Kaidou orders one of his subordinates to find his son and make him appear at the party. The Tobiroppo arrive and enter to meet with Kaidou.
The Golden Kagura festivities begin. A crowd of Beasts Pirates cheers, and Queen starts the party with Apoo DJing. They introduce the Waiters, Pleasures, Gifters, and Shinuchi, but when they Tobiroppo fail to appear for their introduction, Queen jokes that they are too uptight to join in. He then introduces the Numbers, who get a little out of control, and he moves to introduce the Mimawarigumi and Orochi Oniwabanshu. The scene pulls back behind a pair of screen doors, where Orochi tells Fukurokuju that he should go out for his introduction. When the ninja reminds the shogun that he is there to protect him, Orochi suddenly gets angry and tells him that there is nothing to fear now that the Scabbards are dead. Kaidou appears, smiling at Orochi's thought. Queen then tells his subordinates that the Charlotte Family is on their way to the party.
The Tobiroppo are told to wait in a separate room from Kaidou. In the waiting room, Ulti complains about Queen mocking them, and Page One points out her new speaking quirk. The other members of the Tobiroppo talk about the reason why Kaidou summoned them, and Ulti asks if they are being dragged into another family issue, calling Kaidou an idiot to everyone's surprise and horror.
Outside at the torii gate, Luffy calls out to Kin'emon that they defeated the guards. Sanji gets annoyed when Zoro finds booze. The Straw Hat Pirates pour mugs of sake to toast Jinbe, but just before they do so, Kin'emon shouts to thank Luffy. The Scabbards and their allies sail forward to Onigashima, and Luffy stops. The Scabbards and Hyogoro comment on the crew being such dependable allies. Kin'emon turns to address the Kozuki's samurai and orders them to charge. They all scream and press onward, and the scene flashes to Oden marching forward, representing the continuation of his will.
Luffy slams his mug to the ground, deciding that he would rather wait to celebrate with everyone after defeating Kaidou, Orochi, and Big Mom. The crew is surprised but agrees, slamming their mugs to the ground as well. They set off behind the samurai in the Sunny, leaving their mugs behind.
