"The Emperor's Daughter — Sanji's Fiancée Pudding" is the 787th episode of the One Piece anime.
In Pudding's cafe on Cacao Island, Pudding and the Sanji Retrieval Team recognize each other. Together, they discuss the Charlotte Family and the upcoming wedding, and Pudding offers to secretly help the team retrieve Sanji. Meanwhile, an agitated Sanji arrives at the Germa Kingdom. Another section of Germa 66, led by his two elder brothers, arrive at the war-torn Broc Coli Island and confer with one of its sides. Back on the Thousand Sunny, the Sanji Retrieval Team discover that Pekoms is missing, and find a warning scrawled in the bathroom. An excited Luffy nonetheless declares that they will push on.
Pudding asks the Straw Hats to introduce themselves in which Luffy shouts his name and proclaims to be the future pirate king. Nami gets mad and covers Luffy’s mouth. Pudding later blushes and realizes that Luffy looks familiar. A while later, Pudding realizes that the Straw Hats are Sanji’s comrades. The Straw Hats say Pudding’s name to recall the memories as the name sounded familiar. Brook later ask Pudding if she is a member of the Charlotte family to which she says yes. Luffy asks Pudding if she is Big Mom’s daughter, pressed into marrying Sanji to which she agrees. Brook later screams in jealousy of Sanji due to him having such a sweet wife. Pudding later freaks out about how the Straw Hats bypassed the security into Big Mom’s territory and points a knife at them, only for Pedro to hold a sword on her. Pedro asks the Straw Hats on what they should do in which Luffy replies for the release of Pudding. Pudding reveals information that her family is big. This surprises the Straw Hats. Pudding tells the Straw Hats about how she is forced to marry Sanji. She later tells that while Sanji loves her, he doesn’t want to marry her and wants to return to the crew. The crew is shocked upon hearing that Sanji refused to marry such a pretty girl. Pudding later draws a map for the Straw Hats to go to Whole Cake Island, the place where Big Mom resides. The Straw Hats thank Pudding and leaves. Before leaving, Brook asks to see Pudding’s panties again, only to be hit by Nami. After returning to the Sunny, the Straw Hats are shocked to see that Pekoms was missing.
