Oz stands in front of the defeated Straw Hats, wondering who is missing. It’s Luffy, Nami, and Usopp, who he can’t identify as Sogeking on his wanted posters. However, he has no idea where they are located. So he sets out to find them.
Meanwhile, back at the castle, Perona has come to. She is still confused from the fight with Usopp, so she tells them to take the hammer away and explains that she hates cockroaches. The other zombies are confused and explain to her that there are no cockroaches here at all. Confused, Perona asks where she is and then runs away, though the zombies try to explain to her that her opponent is long gone. Seeing a huge hole in the ground in front of her, she stops in astonishment and asks the zombies who ran after her why the house resembles a ruin and if the pirates were to blame. One zombie has to deny this, though the Straw Hats are also running around freely, as the destruction was caused by Oars. Further, she is told that Oars has even defeated all the zombie generals. Perona asks if Oars has gotten out of control or something. But before she can get an explanation from the rest of the zombies, a giant fist shatters the wall of the castle, catching the zombies in the process. A little later, Oars sticks his head through the wall and asks if the girl is around. Everyone is startled and one zombie remarks that Oars should have even trampled Dr. Hogback. When Perona hears the word girl, she immediately thinks she’s meant, and decides to leave the Thriller Bark on the Straw Hats’ ship with some food and the treasures, since the Bark will soon be destroyed anyway, thanks to Oars and the pirates.
In the Thriller Chapel, which is already in ruins, the wedding ceremony is about to end. Just as Absalom is about to give Nami the kiss, she wakes up and is just able to prevent it. Of course, she definitely doesn’t want to marry Absalom and is able to escape his kisses time and time again. Finally, Lola comes bursting in. She is furious with Nami, thinking Nami lied to her and wanted to marry Absalom herself, even more so where she is wearing a wedding dress, and calls her a traitor. However, the Straw Hat Pirate tries to explain to her that she was unconscious until recently and everything happened against her will. However, Lola is unstoppable in her rage. Absalom orders Lola to leave as she would ruin his wedding and also attack his bride. But Lola ignores his order and tells him that he should marry her, which he refuses. Furthermore, she wants to tell Absalom the truth about Nami, namely that she is really a man. Absalom can’t believe it, after all he had seen her naked in the bathroom. At the same time, Lola pretends to attack Nami, but in reality she wants to help her escape from Absalom.
Nami takes her chance and runs away, while Lola tries to kiss Absalom. But Absalom has finally had enough of Lola and hurls her into the nearest wall with his corpse hands. Nami is stunned, Lola was her friend after all. She stops running away and now picks up her climatic baton. With a Thunder Charge: Swing Arm, she defeats Absalom, though she thought he wouldn’t go down right away from that one attack. However, he was already badly weakened from the fight with Sanji, so Nami had it very easy. Right after that, the pirate runs to Lola, who survived Absalom’s attack and is only slightly injured. She thanks her for her help, which Lola takes for granted since they are friends. Nami also confesses to her that she’s not a man at all and only said that out of fear of her, but Lola already knows about that. Now that Absalom is lying unconscious on the floor, Lola sees her chance: she finally wants to marry him and throws herself at him.
Outside, Oars is still searching for the remaining three Straw Hats, so far without success. In the process, he throws a destroyed piece of building into the forest, almost hitting Luffy, who is still chasing Moria. As a result, Luffy has lost the Shadow Master. In order to find him again, the Straw Hat uses the gum-gum whip to mow down the trees for a better view. When he finally finds him again, the chase continues. Two humans emerge from the forest, wondering what that was all about, since Luffy was heading to the castle to defeat Moria. Behind the two, Gecko Moria himself suddenly appears and it turns out that Luffy is merely chasing the shadow of him, Doppelmann. Moria laughs maliciously and says the Straw Hat could never defeat him. He calmly continues on his way. Meanwhile, the other Straw Hat pirates have come around and want to take on Oars again. They give him to understand that he should not underestimate them.
