For a full synopsis of what happened during the Raid on Onigashima, see Wano Country Arc.

The Raid on Onigashima was a battle that took place on the island of Onigashima in Wano Country during that year's Fire Festival. The invading forces were led by the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance, with the objective of defeating the Beasts Pirates, led by Kaidou of the Four Emperors and his allies, including Shogun Kurozumi Orochi and recent ally, fellow Emperor Big Mom.[1]

Crucial Battles in the Raid

  • Despite being infected by the man-made virus Ice Oni, the former yakuza boss Hyogoro manages to defeat all the members of the Orochi Oniwabanshu and the Mimawarigumi, being cured shortly afterwards by Doctor Chopper.[2]
  • Kurozumi Kanjuro, after being exposed as the spy, tormented his former comrades using his paint powers to create a fake Kozuki Oden, resulting in the death of Ashura Doji, but he was critically injured by Kin'emon.[3]
    • Before passing out, Kanjuro painted a fiery creature called Kazenbo that was sent to detonate all the explosives in the Skull Dome's basement.[4] However, this plot was foiled thanks to the interference of Yamato, the son of Kaidou.[5]
  • Both Page One and Ulti are severally wounded by a rampaging Big Mom, the former being defeated, but Ulti gets back up and attacks Usopp, Tama, and Nami, however Nami is able to knock out Ulti after Zeus permanently fused with her weather controlling staff, giving her the extra power she needed to defeat her.[6]
  • The Tobiroppo member and highly skilled former CP9 agent Who's-Who, despite all his strength and ferocity, was ultimately defeated by the former Warlord and the new helmsman of the Straw Hat Pirates, "Knight of the Sea" Jinbe.[7]
  • Sasaki proved to be a worthy adversary for "Iron Man" Franky and even managed to heavily damage the powerful Exo-Armor General Franky, but in the end, Franky emerged victorious when he fired a beam at Sasaki's major weak spot: his large belly.[8]
  • Black Maria underestimated "Devil Child" Nico Robin and it cost her dearly, as Robin saw through all of Black Maria's tricks, penetrated her defenses and after using new fighting techniques she learned from her friends in the Revolutionary Army, she eventually wore Black Maria down then finished her opponent off with Grand Jacuzzi Clutch.[9]
    • Brook did his share by defeating all of Black Maria's subordinates and help kept CP0 from capturing Robin.[10]
  • Marco, the former 1st Division Commander of the Whitebeard Pirates fought bravely, but even he had a hard time fight two All-Stars at once. Marco then decided it was about time to let the next generation of pirates take the stage, so he let two Straw Hats take his place while went to protect his other allies.[11]
  • Just when it seems all hope is lost for Inuarashi and Nekomamushi, the clouds cleared up due to a Haoshoku Clash between Kaidou and Luffy, and the full moon allowed them to transform into their Sulong forms once more, allowing them to simultaneously defeat the All- Star Jack and the Charlotte Family's eldest son, Perospero.[12]
  • Thanks to a miscalculation of his opponent, Killer is able to defeat Basil Hawkins as revenge for his earlier betrayal, slicing off his left arm in the process.[13]
  • The All-Star Queen is a brilliant scientist and highly capable cybernetically-enhanced warrior who ate a Devil Fruit that grants him the abilities of a brachiosaurus. However, Queen met his match in "Black Leg" Sanji, after he fully awakened the same genetically-modified abilities as his super-powered siblings by wearing his Raid Suit multiple times. Combining his massively increased strength, new exoskeleton, and Busoshoku Haki to create a powerful new technique called Ifrit Jambe, Sanji was able to overwhelm Queen and send him flying off of Onigashima.[14]
  • King, the strongest All-Star and Kaidou's right-hand man, proved to be a formidable opponent for "Pirate Hunter" Roronoa Zoro due to his Pteranodon Devil Fruit and the fire controlling abilities and the legendary immense sturdiness and vitality provided by his lunarian heritage. However, thanks to the properties of the legendary Haki-powered sword Enma and his recently discovered Haoshoku Haki, Zoro was finally able to defeat King with his newly developed King of Hell Three Sword Style, and cut off his right wing in the process, causing the All-Star to fall off Onigashima.[15]
  • Izou, the former 16th Division Commander of the Whitebeard Pirates, and Maha, an elite agent of CP0, engaged in a dual which ended in a double knockout, causing the former's death, and causing CP0 to fail at capturing Robin.[16]
  • Raizo wins his duel against fellow ninja veteran Fukurokuju through his great endurance. Despite being exhausted by the fight, he recruited the help of Jinbe and mustered enough strength to flood Onigashima with water through the power of his scroll-based Devil Fruit ability, which prevented the deaths of their allies by extinguishing the fire.[17]
  • X Drake managed to deal serious damage to a CPO agent but was then incapacitated by a Shigan while Scratchmen Apoo realized he was no match against the might of two CPO agents and retreated.[18]
  • In a final attempt to take his revenge, Kurozumi Orochi attacked Kozuki Oden's daughter, Kozuki Hiyori, but was stopped by the timely arrival of Denjiro, who sliced off Orochi's last remaining head.[19]
  • After lengthy and difficult battles, against all odds, what was thought to be impossible happened; two of the Four Emperors, Kaidou and Big Mom, are defeated by three pirate captains of the Worst Generation, all of whom achieved Devil Fruit awakening.[20][21]
    • Eustass Kid and Trafalgar Law had to push themselves to their limits to do battle with the queen of Totto Land, but they found a way to exploit the weakness of her Soru Soru no Mi and attacked Big Mom with every ounce of power they had left to send her crashing into the ground with tremendous force.[22]
    • Monkey D. Luffy was able to chip away at Kaidou's legendary durability and, despite all of Kaidou's powerful unrelenting attacks, he was finally able to land a mighty punch with his giant fist causing Kaidou to fall so hard the collision made a massive crater leading into an underground chamber filled with magma,[23] which is where both Kaidou and Big Mom’s unconscious bodies ended up, which in turn caused a volcanic eruption.[24]


The following is a list of status updates provided by CP0 with the help of the Mary network.

Status Raid Forces Enemy Forces Total Forces Notes
#1 5,400 30,000 35,400 The initial numbers at the start of the battle.[25] On the side of the raid forces were, the Nine Red Scabbards, 3,500 former prisoners of the Udon Prisoner Mine, 200 members of the Yakuza, 200 members from the Kyoshiro Family, 200 minks from the Inuarashi Musketeer Squad, 280 members of the Mt.

#2 5,000 27,000 32,000 First status update after the battle commenced. 3,000 of the enemy forces and 400 of the raid forces were defeated, with the raid forces benefiting from the element of surprise.[25]

In the end, the raid was a total victory with Orochi being dethroned and presumably deceased, meanwhile the Beasts Pirates had lost all their power in Wano, causing many of them to flee, and CP0 agent Guernica also retreated via Geppo so he could report to the World Government everything that happened during the battle. Kaidou's precious New Onigashima Project that he had been working on for decades was now totally in shambles and Onigashima itself had landed near the Flower Capital instead of on top of the city as Kaidou intended thanks to the power of Dr. Vegapunk's Artificial Devil Fruit and Kaidou's once mighty fortress, the Skull Dome was now in ruins. With all enemy forces vanquished, the rightful heir of Wano, Kozuki Momonosuke became the new shogun and the people of Wano rejoiced at their regained freedom.[29]

Kaidou's son Yamato, who had defected from the Beasts Pirates desires to join the Straw Hat Pirates.[30]

Days later, the children of Wano receive new school teachers who told them the true heroic tales of Kozuki Oden, everyone in Wano heard about of the warrior Joy Boy and the tale of how he defeated Kaidou (As Luffy asked Momonosuke to not give his name to the people of Wano) with the citizens compering his heroism to Shimotsuki Ryuma, shrines were planned to be built so that Oden could finally be laid to rest, along with the members of the alliance that gave their lives for the rebellion, including Shimotsuki Yasuie, Ashura Doji and Izou. Everyone in Wano also soon learned of Komurasaki and Kyoshiro's true identities as Kozuki Hiyori and Denjiro.

Naturally, news of Kaidou and Big Mom's defeat soon spread across the seas; it was then before the banquet to celebrate the alliance's victory that Scratchmen Apoo arrived and showed those present the newspaper, which named the new Emperors of the Sea as well as an update on everyone's new bounties.[31] It was announced to the whole world that "Straw Hat" Luffy and Buggy the "Star Clown" had replaced Big Mom and Kaidou as Emperors. Additionally, Luffy, Law and Kid had been assigned bounties of Beli.png3,000,000,000 each. To the dismay of the Five Elders, Luffy also got a new picture in his bounty poster showing the whole world his awakened form.[32]
