Whole Cake Island Saga

Whole Cake Island Arc

Basans attended the tea party and wedding for Charlotte Pudding and Sanji on the Whole Cake Chateau. When Sanji dodged the bullets meant to assassinate him, Basans consulted worriedly with his crewmates, wondering if they should continue the plan. Monkey D. Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates then broke into the venue in order to hatch the assassination plot against Big Mom with the Fire Tank Pirates. When Charlotte Perospero trapped the Vinsmoke Family with candy, Basans and other members of the Big Mom Pirates held them at gunpoint. However, Big Mom’s scream incapacitated them, allowing the Straw Hats to free the Vinsmokes.

Katakuri then created earplugs for everyone, and the Big Mom Pirates besieged Capone Bege. When Bege attempted to escape, Basans and his crew were seen shooting at him, but the shots were blocked by the Vinsmoke Family. Basans then clashed with Vinsmoke Yonji as Bege was flown away. The Big Mom Pirates eventually got the upper hand again against the enemy alliance, but the Tamatebako then fell to the base of the Chateau, tipping it over and sending the Big Mom Pirates plummeting to the ground below. However, their fall was broken when Streusen turned part of the Chateau into soft cake.
