One Piece 4DEdit
One Piece 4D was an original 3D animation that featured different scenes from Fish-Man Island, Punk Hazard and Dressrosa Story Arcs. Because it was released before the end of the Dressrosa Arc, the movie ends with Luffy and Trafalgar Law confronting Doflamingo on the roof of Dressrosa's royal palace.
The animation made some modifications to the arcs' plots. In Punk Hazard, Caesar only blows up Luffy once with his Gastanettes, as opposed to twice in the manga. In Dressrosa, Luffy runs up Pica's arm by himself, as opposed to riding on Ucy with Zoro, Abdullah and Jeet.
The animation begins with the Straw Hat Pirates descending into the sea on the coated Thousand Sunny. The crew encounters the Kraken, and Luffy, Zoro and Sanji attack it. The scene then cuts to Gyoncorde Plaza where Neptune and his sons are being held for their executions. Hody Jones prepares to execute them, and Shirahoshi cries out, begging for them to be spared. Suddenly, Luffy jumps out from behind Shirahoshi and strikes Hody, knocking him into a wall. The scene transitions to Luffy and Hody's conflict in the waters outside of Noah, and Luffy defeats Hody with Gomu Gomu no Red Hawk.
Now on Punk Hazard, Mocha begs Nami and Sanji to rescue her and her friends. The scene changes to Caesar Clown, and then to Luffy and Trafalgar Law outside of Caesar's laboratory. Luffy fights Caesar but is bombarded by Smiley before he can finish his opponent off, and Caesar uses his Gastonette to cause a large explosion around Luffy. Luffy survives and faces Caesar again inside the laboratory, punching the scientist in the face.
On Dressrosa, Doflamingo has activated his Birdcage and announces his plans to destroy the island to its citizens. During the announcement, Luffy and Law stand and face Pica, who has merged with the King's Plateau. Pica punches the island's surface, destroying many buildings and creating a dust storm. Luffy jumps and runs up Pica's arm before hitting the officer in the face with Gomu Gomu no Grizzly Magnum. Luffy falls to the roof of Dressrosa's Royal Palace, where he and Law stand before a smiling Doflamingo. "To be Continued" flashes before the screen, indicating the animation's end.
