Flashback!People: Aaaaaaghhhhh!! // Stop this, please, Your Majesty!! // Help~~~~~!! // We’ve given you our money, at least spare our lives...!! // What has happened to His Majesty?!! // The whole country is in a panic!!! // I thought he was acting strangely ever since he rushed out of the palace... / ...but I never dreamed he would do something like this!! // The situation has become too serious for us to handle alone... / I have contacted the Marines for help!!
Flashback!People: Captain Vergo has agreed... / ...to take care of everything!!
Flashback!Viola: Snow?! // Moné?! What are you doing over there?! // Why are you, a royal attendant, opening the gates of the Palace...?!!
Flashback!Moné: ...Ahahah... / Princess Viola... // Surely your “all-seeing eyes”... / ...must allow you to see all too clearly... // ...what is happening all across this country right now. // I am here... // ...to greet... // ...our new Royal Family.
Flashback!People: There are flames coming from the eastern tower!! // Pirates have invaded the Palace!! // Princess Viola has been taken hostage!!!
Flashback!SeñorPink: The view in this Palace is nice... I like it.
Flashback!Buffalo: Yeah, it’s pretty fine.
Flashback!Machvise: A fitting palace for the young master, oiiiiiing!!
Flashback!People: Hald, fiends!! // Were you sent by Doflamingo?! // Moné!! Release Princess Viola at once!!! // What have you fiends done to King Riku?!!!
Flashback!Jola: Now, it seems we have much to do!
Flashback!LaoG: Time to clean up a little in here, I think!!
Flashback!People: Why are you doing this~~~~?!!
Flashback!King: *pant* // *pant*
Flashback!People: Riku Royal Army!!! // Aaaaghhhh!!
Flashback!King: Please, stop...!! // If living means harming my own subjects... // I would rather die...!!! / Urghh...! // Please, somebody... // Just kill me~~~~!!!
Flashback!People: Why are you doing this, Your Majesty?! // Did we do something wrong? Something to offend you...?! // You have always been right and just!! // You are our King, the pride of this country!! // When you asked for our money... / We willingly gave everything we have! // Because you have always thought of us above all else...!! // Because you are our pride and joy!!! // Aaaghhhhh!!!
Flashback!People: Waaaaaahhhhhhh!! // ...King Riku has trampled all over our hearts...!! // He means to steal our money and our lives!!! // He only cares for himself... He’s treating us like nothing more than trash...!!! // Curse you, King Riku...!!! // I will never forgive you...!!! // You’re the scum... // ...of humanity~~~~~!!! // The Riku Royal Army are coming!!! // Hey!! Get away from there!!! Run!!! // ...............!! // *pant*...!! // H...Help me...!!
Flashback!People: ?!! // Ahhh! // ...............?! // Unghh!! // ...............?! // Who the heck...are you people...?!!
Flashback!Doflamingo: ...!! Fufufuffuffuffu!! // I’m here to save this country!!! // My name is Donquixote Doflamingo!!!
Flashback!People: H...He’s a pirate......!!! // But... // ...He’s defeating the Riku Royal Army for us...
Flashback!Doflamingo: (Fall to the darkness!! Worship my violence!!) // Trebol... / ...Pica... / ...Diamante...!!
Flashback!People: ...............!! // ..................
Flashback!Doflamingo: Go forth... // ...and clean up the mess of this country!!
Flashback!People: Doflamingo!! // Doflamingo!! // Doflamingo!!
OneLeg: In the space of a single night... // The country fell into Doflamingo’s hands.
Usopp: What an awful story... It’s like a nightmare!!!
Robin: What a cunning man...... // (...............!!)
Franky: Uuuu...unglrhh...!! D...Doflamingoooo!!! I’ll nebber forgibe you!!!
Gancho: At the time all this happened... / We too were fooled by King Riku’s terrible acts... / So we made contact with the new King, Doflamingo, and that is how we ended up in this state. // It is our shame that we were unable to trust in King Riku......!!
Usopp: Well, this is a nasty state of affairs... / The King who everyone loved and looked up to... // ...died a hated man, blamed for a crime he didn’t commit...!!
OneLeg: No... King Riku is still alive!!
OneLeg: Doflamingo had a passionate desire for the ability that the King’s daughter, Princess Viola, possessed. / So he offered her a bargain.
Flashback!Viola: If you promise you will not take my father’s life... // I will do anything you say!!
OneLeg: The Princess lives to this day as one of Doflamingo’s subordinates.........!!
OneLeg: She now calls herself “Violet”... // ...and holds a senior position within the Family.
Usopp: She’s a big shot in the Family?! Then thanks to her, King Riku must still be...
OneLeg: Indeed. He must be alive, somewhere in this country. // But the pain he has suffered over these past ten years must be unimaginable...!! / And Princess Viola must also be suffering terribly!! // Fear... Anger... Tears... // What can these ten years have been like for her...?
OneLeg: And the soldiers, too, who were controlled like King Riku that night... // How much pain must they feel, having harmed the people of this country with their own hands...?
Usopp: !! / Then King Riku’s soldiers weren’t all killed that night...?
OneLeg: Some were indeed killed... / But some bowed down before Doflamingo where they stood... / ...and live on today as his personal guards...!!
Franky: They betrayed their King?!!!
Flashback!Doflamingo: These men were only acting under the orders of the mad King Riku!! // I have forgiven their crimes, and agreed to accept them as my own subordinates!!!
OneLeg: I believe that they too submitted to him only because they had no other choice.
Franky: That’s too sad!! I can’t stop crying!! All that suffering... Uwaaaaaghhhh~~!!!
OneLeg: Some soldiers were killed, and some submitted to their enemy... / But these two groups combined make up only a fraction of the country’s army.
Franky: ?! / What does that mean?!
OneLeg: It means...that I too must have had some memories taken from me.
OneLeg: Fraland, I showed you the town just now, did I not?
OneLeg: We who have been turned into toys... / ...remember everything about our former human lives.
Flashback!Milo: My name is Milo... // ...not Wanpoco.
OneLeg: But the people around us, even our own families, have forgotten we ever existed. // They cannot even realise that they have forgotten their own loved ones. / This is the greatest tragedy of Dresrosa... / ...and it applies even to us toys ourselves.
Robin: ! // You mean, among the toys in the town, there could be former comrades that even you aren’t able to remember?
OneLeg: That is correct.
OneLeg: Furthermore, from the moment they were transformed into toys... / ...each one of them must surely have developed a fierce anger towards Doflamingo. // Certainly, Doflamingo buries all attempts at rebellion away in the darkness... / But at the same time, this serves as proof that there is a powerful desire for rebellion lurking in this country’s shadows!!
OneLeg: This sheer number of tragedies... / ...holds the key to the plan... // ...that we intend to execute today!!!
Franky: Oh, I get it!! So that’s why you’re so sure... / ...you have a real chance of winning!! // If the people here were all we had, taking on a Shichibukai would be pretty difficult... / But if we think of all the toys in this country as potential rebels, that’s quite the force we have behind us!!
Usopp: (Hold on, hold on, what are you saying?!!! / You’re not seriously planning to take down Doflamingo with these people, are you?!!! // Our goal is to destroy the factory, and that’s all!! / Once we’ve done that, we should get the hell out of here!!) // Isn’t that right, Robin?!!
Robin: I cannot forgive Doflamingo.
Leo: Today we face a battle that has been a long time coming!! / This morning’s incident was a challenge from our enemy!!! // It is no coincidence that our hero Usoland chose this day to appear before us!! / The heavens are telling us today is the day to fight!!!
Usopp: What’s this incident he’s talking about?
OneLeg: What else but the announcement that Doflamingo would abandon his throne?
Usopp: Oh, right... About that...
OneLeg: Can you imagine the joy we felt when we heard this news? Truly, we believed a miracle had come to pass. // But then the news emerged that the report was mistaken...!! Our joy was snatched from before us, and we were plunged once more into the depths of hell!! // Can you blame us, in our despair, for choosing this fateful day... // ...as the day of our final battle?
Usopp/Robin/Franky: !!! // (We’re really sorry~~~~!!!)
[Box: Beneath Dresrosa... / The Scrap Heap]
Riku: So...you, a retired man... / ...chose to sail to this island?
Chinjao: Indeed I did!! // I have nobody to succeed me as leader of the Happou Armada, you see. // Would that I had only had a grandson...
Riku: So even knaves like you... // ...suffer such struggles. // (Is it just my imagination? I feel as though I am missing something important... / I felt a similar sensation ten years ago...)
Boo: (Where the heck am I going?!! Gramps, come and save me!!)
Abdullah: (...?!! What has that fiend done to me, the lone wolf Abdullah?!!)
Jet: (You will pay for doing this to the lone warrior Jet!!)
[Box: The Corrida Colosseum]
Luffy: Zoro~~~~~~~~~~~!! // Kin’emon~~~~!!!
Zoro: Luffy!! Not so loud, you idiot!!!
Luffy: That rooster-head guy told me you were here!!
Zoro: Where is he, anyway?
Luffy: Well, he started foaming at the mouth while we were on the way...
Bellamy: .................. // I’ve finally found you......
