It's the final showdown with the metallic King Wapol! He wants his castle back and he's not taking "no" for an answer. Well, Luffy, Sanji and their newfound friend Tony Tony Chopper aren't giving up so easily! But our heroes have their hands full--especially with Wapol's ability to modify his body depending on what he eats! Meanwhile, down the mountain in Big Horn village the people are devastated as their beloved leader lies in the snow, badly injured. But all is not lost when Wapol's deadly 20 Doctors make an unbelievable announcement!
