As we have seen in Chapter 1016, in the visitor’s reception room, CP-0 continues to observe the battle, noting that despite supposedly losing Luffy, the alliance is still fighting. The boss says that an additional total of 5,000 soldiers have been incapacitated, leaving the Beasts Pirates with 24,000 soldiers and the alliance with 3,000.
However, due to the Pleasures and Waiters on the Live Stage having turned on Queen, the Beasts Pirates now have 20,000 and the alliance 7,000. CP-0 are amazed by how the disparity in manpower was shrinking and how the tide of the battle constantly changes with new information.
+ The White side represents the Alliance (7,000)
+ The Black side represents the Enemy (20,000)
Now guess what the black side is entouring the white side which appears to be like what? A cross.
And guess who has a cross theme before this chapter?
Yeah Oda made a cross theme about Zoro which represents the Alliance side.
