Wano Country ArcEdit
The group was surprised to see Kaido, and Shinobu was shocked to see Momonosuke in dragon form. After Monkey D. Luffy rushed off with Law following him and Kin'emon and Kiku left to rescue Tsuru, the rest tried to escape as Kaido approached the castle and destroyed it with a heat breath.
She used her powers to save the remaining people in the castle from Kaido's attack by creating a hole underneath the castle. Kiku later returned to the ruined castle and informed the group about what happened to Luffy.
Sometime after Luffy was taken by the Beasts Pirates, Shinobu and Nami infiltrated a house and spied on government officials in charge of weapon shipments from the ceiling. One of the officials spotted Nami's looking glass and jabbed a blade into the ceiling. Nami and Shinobu were forced to run away from his attacks, and Shinobu started screaming, tipping the officials off to the presence of humans. However, the duo managed to escape, and Shinobu used ninjutsu to glide through the air. Nami revealed that she found out when and where the weapons shipment was leaving, and Shinobu admitted that she is afraid of sharp objects, much to Nami's chagrin.
Shinobu and Nami later infiltrated Orochi's castle. While they were hiding in the attic, Nico Robin contacted them through Den Den Mushi and informed them that she had been discovered by the Orochi Oniwabanshu. While peeking into the banquet hall from the space above the ceiling, Shinobu and Nami were confronted by Hanzo. He correctly identified Shinobu at first, but then doubted it was her, causing Shinobu to get mad and throw a projectile into his groin, which incapacitated him. Shinobu then collapsed the ceiling, causing it to fall on Kurozumi Orochi. Amidst the chaos in the banquet hall, Shinobu was shocked to witness Kyoshiro striking down Komurasaki. As the shogun pursued Robin and Toko, Shinobu ran past Nami as the latter unleashed Zeus' lightning on Orochi.
After escaping Orochi's palace, Shinobu, Nami, Brook, and Robin dropped Toko off in the red light district before meeting up with Kanjuro at the Northern Graveyards in the Ringo region. Shinobu, Nami, and Robin later went to a bathhouse. While bathing, Shinobu explained to Nami and Robin about Hyogoro and her past as Fukurokuju's subordinate. A Beasts Pirates squad led by Hawkins and Drake arrived at the bathhouse to look for people with the Kozuki Family's crescent moon symbol on their ankles. Shinobu told Nami to hide behind her, but Hawkins noticed her and tried to fish her out, causing her to disrobe and Sanji to reveal his presence. Drake then came into the bathhouse and fainted from seeing naked women. While Hawkins was distracted, Shinobu's group took the opportunity to escape. Sanji carried them and flew away from the bathhouse. While flying, Sanji informed them that Law's crew were captured.
- Shinobu means "to endure" or "to conceal oneself" and is a variant word for "shinobi".
