Wapol's Omnivorous Hurrah is the fifth cover story created as a side story on the title pages of each One Piece chapter. The story can be set between the events of Drum Island Arc and the timeskip.

Short Summary

Having been propelled onto an unknown island by Luffy, Wapol experiences life as a homeless man for the first time. Eventually, he uses his Baku Baku powers to create unique toys by fusing different objects together and begins to work his way back up the social ladder by selling these toys to children. In the end, he opened his own shop and married Kinderella.

Long Summary

On an unknown island, the landscape has been marred by someone taking bites out of it. That person is revealed to be Wapol, who landed there after being sent flying by Luffy from Drum Island and regained his original figure after eating so much. He surprises a local man by sporting a tree head after eating one. Then he eats a gas lamp, annoying the nocturnal animals at night, and then a bench, scaring away unsuspecting people trying to sit on him. Finally, Wapol snaps and starts eating an entire town for dessert, which results in his arrest by the Marines.

Meanwhile, Dalton becomes the new king of Drum Island, with the kingdom now called the Sakura Kingdom.

Wapol manages to escape arrest and ends up in a dump with a dog named Hakowan that constantly pees on him. Upon which, he sadly realizes that his days as a privileged king were officially over. During the cold season, Wapol tries to make money by selling matches to people, but nobody wanted to get near him. To curb his hunger and sorrow, Wapol ends up eating broken toys under a bridge. However, while munching on the junk, he ends up using his Baku Baku Factory technique to combine the toy parts into new, bigger toys. He also ends up eating Hakowan too, turning his head into a box with lens for eyes. The island children see and fall in love with Wapol's new toy creations, so he began selling them for a profit. He makes enough money to build his own toy booth, which booms in popularity. Hakowan also apparently becomes his pet, who constantly follows him.

One of the children brings his new toy and shows it to his scientist father, who discovers that the toy is made out of an unidentified, powerful alloy. Wapol was then thrust into the limelight for this invention, which he dubbed "Wapometal." With this new metal, Wapol became rich enough to build massive toy shop, and then an entire factory, and even an entire conglomerate. He then ends up marrying a beautiful and apparently well-known woman by the name of Kinderella, otherwise known as “Miss Universe”. With her and Hakowan at his side, Wapol revels at the fact that he had become more rich and powerful than he ever was as a king.

Aftermath

During the timeskip, Wapol and Miss Universe founded their own kingdom. In addition, during the time skip, Franky was able to use Wapometal to advance his own technology. Perona acquired one of Wapol's toys and had Hogback create a zombie based off of it.

Trivia

  • This is the fourth cover story to be animated. It is also the first to be told in a flashback and the first to be seen after the timeskip.
  • The part where Dalton is seen as king isn't shown in the anime.
  • In the anime, Wapol suggested having his tale of climbing back up the social ladder be published as "Wapol's Great Memoirs".
  • At 23 installments, this is (discounting the disparate pieces of stories such as the Straw Hat's Separation Serial) currently the shortest cover story.
