    • Conis' introduction has changed to her being chased by Sky Beasts and rescued by Gan Fall and the Straw Hats.
    • Nami test driving the Waver is shortened, and she does not travel to Upper Yard and witness the priests' judgment.

    • The Ordeal of Swamp and Ordeal of Iron are only briefly seen instead of being major fights for Chopper and Zoro respectively.
    • Since Conis remained on the Going Merry when Enel attacked, she learns about Enel's plot here, instead of later on due to the removal of her father Pagaya and Enel's former soldier who warned them in the original storyline from the special.
