While Luffy was watching Sanji’s fight against Pearl , Krieg treacherously attacked Luffy. Luffy was tossed into the back of Pearl's head, forcing Pearl to smash his face against his own armor.  In order to stop a berserk Pearl from destroying the ship he was after, Krieg threw a knob toward Sanji and Pearl but Luffy was able to deflect it. The knob instead destroyed Krieg's ship mast which, by falling, knocked out Pearl. However, the Krieg Pirates had not said their last word. While they were fighting, Gin took Zeff down and was threatening his life with a gun.
