Chapter 120 is titled "The Red Ogre Cried".
Without knowing that he was helped, Brogy cries tears of joy after his victory against Dorry, but his joy is shortened by Mr. 3's interruption. While celebrating the giant's feet are immobilized and he cannot move anymore.
Meanwhile, Luffy and Usopp are very upset by the situation and while they are wondering who is responsible, Mr. 5 and Miss Valentine make their appearance with an injured Carue. They tell Vivi that they were trying to use him as bait for capturing Vivi, but the duck did not betray his master. They also correctly assume that Usopp is a member of the Straw Hats despite not meeting him earlier at Whiskey Peak and decide to eliminate him as well. Usopp and Vivi try to get revenge for their friend but are no match against the Baroque Works agents who, unfortunately, capture the princess in order to take her to Mr. 3.
After defeating Dorry, Brogy is ecstatic, though Luffy knowing that the duel was rigged is angry and demands to know who the real culprit is. Mr.3 then reveals himself to Brogy and asks why he is crying, to which Brggy demands who he is, which prompts Mr. 3 to introduce himself and exclaims that he has captured Brogy. And when Brogy moves to take a step forward it is revealed that he has been immobilized by wax.
Meanwhile back at Dorry's camp, Mr. 5 and Miss Valentine arrive and Luffy realizes it was them that planted the bomb. They also reveal that they had captured Carue and intended to use him to separate Vivi from Luffy. Angered by their lack of morale, Vivi and Usopp attack the duo, only to be defeated easily.
Meanwhile, Mr. 3 has completely defeated Brogy and announces that he will make a masterpiece.
