Although Nami and Usopp have been part of the weakest trio for quite some time, fans hoped that was just how Oda set them up for something amazing in the latest arc.
However, the title of episode 1008 being “Nami surrenders?! Ulti’s Fierce Headbutt! these hopes were quickly dashed. Even though Nami and Usopp fought as best they could, they were no match for the powerful sibling duo.
Fortunately, Tama and Komachiyo came to save the day after the Straw Hats took heavy damage from Ulti’s headbutts.
However, now that the siblings are out for blood and Tama has put herself in danger, they have to work twice to prevent the worst from happening to them all.
But can they defeat Page One and Ulti in their current state? Will they make it out alive?
This page contains One Piece (anime and manga) spoilers.
Usopp and Nami will manage to defeat the Tobiroppo duo in later episodes, while Chapters 1011, 1012, 1013 and 1016 see them defeating Page One and Ulti with the help of an unlikely ally – Big Mom!
Why does Big Mom fight against the Tobiroppo duo?
Big Mom’s hatred of the Straw Hats has been festering ever since the whole Whole Cake arc fiasco. So why would she fight Page One and Ulti when she has a chance of crushing Nami and Usopp?
Since her goal was always to get rid of the Three Emperors and claim the title of “Pirate King”, her stab in the back could indicate the start of her real plan to help Kaiduo get the One Piece.
However, his encounter with the runaway trio of Nami, Usopp, and Tama revealed the real reason. While she was hostile to the first two, she was delighted to find the second.
Although Prometheus attributed this to his maternal mode for children under 10, she actually considered Tama a friend for taking her to Okobore Town, where the Pirate Emperor was treated when she had amnesia.
But when Tama tearfully explained that Kaiduo’s minions set the city on fire When the townspeople took the blame for the scabbard’s raid on their food supplies, Big Mom saw red.
Enraged that the callousness and brutality of Kaiduo’s men had cost her the town she was grateful for, she went after the closest Tobiroppo she could find – a rampaging Page One.
However, this triggered Ulti, which only made matters worse when she targeted Tama, earning Big Mom’s ire, who resolved to shoot him.
Who beats Ulti and Page One in the end?
Chapter 1011 sees Page One knocked out with a single Haoshoku-infused punch from Big Mom. However, taking down Ulti spanned three chapters and required the combined strengths of Big Mom and Nami.
be the fearless and overprotective sister Ulti charged Big Mom with intent to kill after seeing his younger brother get knocked to the ground.
As the lying Beast Pirates advised to go against the Pirate Emperor, the short fuse already triggered by Ulti blocked any sense of reason as avenging his brother was the only thing on his mind.
While it started as a 1v1 between her and Linlin, Ulti made the fatal mistake of bringing Tama into the fray.
After preventing the trio’s second escape attempt by headbutting Komachiyo, she slapped the girl when she was annoyed by her pleas to stop hurting the komainu.
Seeing Tama’s mistreatment, Big Mom and Nami turned their fury on her. Even though Nami unleashed a barrage of attacks, Tobiroppo’s agility and impervious skin of his Zoan form countered them all.
But since she was concerned about the burglar cat, Big Mom and her homies unleashed their deadliest combo – the Maser Ho, which pierced through her and seemingly took her out.
However, she was back when the trio reached Marys stage. Suddenly launching a surprise attack, she headbutted Usopp and then strangled Tama, blaming her for turning Big Mom against the Beast Pirates.
Luckily for Nami, Zeus’ soul successfully fused with his Clima-Tact after her sacrifice stops Big Mom from killing them while Ulti is temporarily out of place.
After Homie revealed that Ulti could not withstand another lightning due to its severe internal damage, Usopp separated Tama from the Tobiroppo by unleashing his special Sargassum attack which entangled her in seaweed.
After getting a clear shot, Nami delivered the final blow – a manageable bolt of lightning that Zeus aimed to hit Ulti, ultimately knocking her down.
