"Time for some ham!"

In the core concept of DnD, its about role playing. Acting out characters, taking on their mannerisms, figuring out what they would say in a situation instead of what YOU would say, and so on. Sometimes these fall flat.

And other times, they actually turn out to be amazing points in the game. Either through superb acting, amazing improv, a impassioned speech, or even just something said or done that cracks everybody at the table up, most players can remember one time where the RP of a game was just as epic as the Natural 20's. Tell a story of a memorable point of Role Playing that you'll never forget, good or bad.

"Story time"

To make a very long story short-ish, for about 2 years (real time) the party in my game was accompanied by an NPC tank/comic relief character named Bravo- think a medieval frat boy.

Near the end of Bravo's run, he had something of an emotional breakdown that revealed much sadder elements of his back story. DM even managed to cry while doing so. Session ended on a super somber note, but the players all agreed it was about the finest RP the game had ever seen (though to be fair we're a much more action-oriented group).

Flash forward a few months (in-game and out), Bravo more-or-less betrayed the party, and attempted to kill one of the PCs (who, it should be noted, was secretly a semi-reformed terrorist, and even besides that Bravo's motives were pretty sympathetic). A brutal battle followed between two guys who, up until then, had been best friends. Finally, the PC won, and Bravo died. And yet, the consensus of the group was that the PC should have died instead, karmically speaking. Yup, Bravo was so beloved that the group (including the victorious PC's player) agreed it would have been morally better for the traitor to have triumphed.

Then why didn't you throw the battle? Cared way more about winning than anything else? Didn't take time to think?

Nobody wants to die. The Traitor is still going to have that survival instinct, and if they're playing with proper separation of character and player, the Character isn't going to say "Yep, my motivations are less than his, and so I should suicide by Bravo.

Fishman Karate Stance might've given Zorro Fast Healing, but something tells me that Arlong's got Regeneration.

Actually that's an exaggerated version of what sharks already do. They constantly loose and regrow teeth. To the point that they have multiple rows of back up teeth.

As Thud said, sharks regrow their teeth like it's nothing. But to be fair, Luke is insanely pumped so it'll be fun to see how he actually gets around that. I admittedly don't watch One Piece, and only ever saw a few episodes. From the few I've seen, I like the tabletop version better. Way more funny for me, so I genuinely don't know how he wins.

"Pretty Epically"

I can't say for sure how Luffy/Luke will win since they're changing things up from the anime a bit, obviously. But you can bet the RP is gonna be AMAZING

Oh I so want to say what happens next! You're gonna love it. So instead, I give you the Three Rules of One Piece Fighting:
1 - Anything worth exaggerating gets exaggerated to 11 (or over 9,000, depending on your meme preferences).
2 - It can always get worse.
3 - It's not over until there are Tears and Boogers, One Hit Point Left, or an Afro.

4 - No one really dies in One Piece.
4.1 - Except when they do. Expect to cry like a child in these instances. Don't be ashamed, we all have been through it.

"He gets an idea on how to get around it..."

...not a good idea, but an idea nontheless.

A bit of roleplaying can always help you out a little. And against Arlong, you don't say know to some help.

Also a good justification as to how Luffy grabbed sword in the first place. since in-character he had'nt seen arlong using is two defense to counter Zoro's blade and had'nt experienced them himself.
