My question is two-fold:

  1. How did Trafalgar Law and the other "Worst Generation" pirates get to Marineford? I thought you had to go through the tri-currents? Or is that the tri-currents are just a faster way but you can come any other way since Marineford is not in the calm belt?

  2. How did Trafalgar Law leave the tri-currents? This especially puzzled me. I am thinking now that it might be because of their submarine. My assumption is that it can move freely, does not depend on currents, but I am not sure.

I would appreciate answers that are based on more than just speculation.

  1. Ya they took the current because they wouldn't have made it in time otherwise, there's no indication that you can't get there any other way.

  2. Considering white beard's entire fleet got there underwater I assume that you're able to maneuver freely.


Tri Currents has nothing to do with getting to and leaving Marine Ford. It only helps if you are trying to go to and fro from Ennis Lobby, Impel Down or Marine Ford. It does not mean that this is the only way to get to Marine Ford. It is just one of the way.

Tri currents is a marine exclusive current between Impel Down, Ennis Lobby and Marine Ford. Using this way will increase the speed of travel between these places.

You can get to Marine Ford from Sabaody archipelago in half an hour without using the currents. Marines and Celestial Dragons travel regularly between the two.

Only problems for Pirates and other criminals to use this way would be the heavy patrols. But is they can get past the patrols like WB, Law and Luffy(when he rang the Ox Bell), you can get there.

Since Law never entered the currents, he never had to leave it.

On a side note, Luffy, Jinbei, Crocodile, and Co would have been trapped the Tri Currents if not for Black Beard, when they escaped Impel Down through the Tri Currents.

  • Tri-currents obviously has to do with getting to and from Marineford... It might not be the only way though, which I am guessing you're trying to say. That answers 1. But Law obviously entered the currents to leave Marineford, maybe you should check what actually happened before making such claims. This is why I said I wanted more than just speculation. – Akaisteph7 Jan 27 '19 at 23:23
  • Where did he enter tri currents? He just went underwater and escaped. Exactly when did Law enter the Tri Currents? – Ashray Jan 30 '19 at 11:29
  • Before they leave, I think Bepo says to hurry because the gates of justice are about to close. They don't actually show them entering the currents but why would they mention that if they don't pass through the gates?.. It's in Chapter 580. – Akaisteph7 Jan 30 '19 at 20:14
  • Ok, my bad. I did not see that part. I don't know Law used the Tri Currents. – Ashray Feb 4 '19 at 12:23
  • I don't know the exact answer as to how he got out. But one way could be that he got under the currents since it was a submarmine and got out. Or since Hancock was following them, she could have asked the marines to open the gate when they reached Ennis Lobby or Impel Down. – Ashray Feb 4 '19 at 12:26
