Meanwhile, Dalton guides Vivi and Usopp to Cocoa Weed, the village where Dr. Kureha was last seen. However, when they arrive she has already left. The bad news continue when a guard arrives in a shocked state. He tells Dalton that their former king, Wapol, has returned.
On the coast, Wapol defeated the village guards easily and is determined to return to his castle as soon as possible, but when he learns that the Going Merry is nearby and that the Straw Hats headed towards Bighorn village, he decides to take his revenge. Dalton, on his side, left Cocoa as soon as he heard the news, in order to stop the tyrant's return to his throne.
