Nami, Usopp and Chopper are in Dr. Hogback’s laboratory. The latter calls in the samurai zombie Ryuma after Nami says that they know from a newspaper article that Cindry died 10 years ago. The samurai doesn’t take long to ask Nami to show him her panties, to which she of course reacts angrily, but also very surprised since Brook asked her the exact same thing. Also, Ryuma possesses the same laugh as Brook, which is “Yohoho”. Hogback introduces him as a zombie general from the land of Wano in the New World, who, according to legend, killed a dragon.
Samurai Ryuma now slowly walks past Nami, Usopp and Chopper, who look after him in amazement, thinking he was going to attack them. Usopp finally snaps the other two out of their amazement and they try to flee. But suddenly, out of nowhere, they are attacked and fall to the ground unconscious.
Luffy’s squad has arrived at Dr. Hogback’s castle in the dining room. Again, the castle zombies are trying to spread terror and capture them. Luffy is impressed by the strange creatures of the Thriller Bark. Immediately, the Straw Hats begin their battle and finish off the Castle Zombies in no time. Oinkchuck, who has not been touched, tells them that Nami, Chopper, and Usopp are sleeping in their bedrooms, which Luffy & Co. refuse to believe, but they notice that Sanji has disappeared. The defeated castle zombies are acting suspicious and the Straw Hats want to take Oinkchuck as a tour guide.
While the zombies dance and sing outside the castle with a disco ball, Absalom heads to the morgue and wakes up the rest of the zombie generals, who are getting ready to attack the pirates.
