Detamaruka and Jaiya ran from the Birdcage as Donquixote Doflamingo began closing it. Suddenly, Detamaruka fell and was unable to get back up. She told Jaiya to leave her and keep going, but Jaiya refused. They then listened to their former king, Riku Doldo III, encouraging everyone to keep staying alive and that there was hope, which caused Detamaruka to get back up and started running at a very fast pace, much to the joy of her granddaughter.
