They come across a prison and Bully Koopa goes down on a rope to ask one of the prisoners if they are Crimewave Clyde. When the prisoner explains that he is indeed Crimewave Clyde, Bully tells him that his father is giving him a pardon and he takes Clyde and brings him onboard the Doomship.
Clyde does not know the Koopa's or their intentions with having him onboard but Bowser soon explains to him that he wants him to teach his koopalings the tactics he used to commit crimes. In exchange, Bowser offers him half of whatever they manage to steal. However, King Bowser really doesn't mean that. Clyde agrees and begins to teach the koopalings their first lesson; bank robbery.
