The second appear of the crew is after Luffy had defeated Arlong, Shanks and his crew were resting on an unknown island somewhere in the Grand Line.

When the Warlord of the Sea and greatest swordsman in the world, Dracule “Hawkeye” Mihawk paid Shanks a visit, much to the shock of a few of Shanks’ weaker crew members.

Later on, Shanks sent a message to Whitebeard that was delivered by their newest recruit, Rockstar.

Whitebeard refused to read it, since Shanks himself did not deliver it. The message’s contents were unknown, though Whitebeard assumed that it was about Portgas D. Ace and Blackbeard.

Shanks met with Whitebeard later to request him to call Ace back. Shanks revealed that it was Teach that gave him the scars on his face,

stating it was not because he was being careless. The World Government feared that the two crews may decide to form alliance with one another, but simply decided to observe their actions for now.

Later, in the Whitebeard War, they arrived at Marineford, as Shanks stopped Admiral Akainu from killing Koby,

and Beckman stopped Admiral Kizaru from shooting his light laser at Law’s submarine which Luffy was aboard.

Due to the presence of Shanks and his crew, the Marines chose not to challenge them as the Blackbeard Pirates left Marineford and Sengoku announced the end of war.
