Short SummaryEdit

While Brogy is trying to escape from his wax handcuffs, Mr. 3 stabs him by using his wax sword which pierces his hands and feet. He wants his future wax statues to express distress and pain. Nami and Vivi have more and more trouble moving while the wax covering them is increasing. Deciding not to die in such a stupid way, Zoro starts to cut off his own legs. Everyone is astonished by such a stupid idea except Brogy who finds new hope in an act of proof of a real warrior. Fortunately for Zoro's legs, Luffy, Usopp, and Carue make their apparition, deciding to avenge the giants.

Long SummaryEdit

While Brogy tries to get back up, Mr. 3 realizes he needs to use more force to keep him down and stabs him with wax swords in his hands and his feet, immobilizing him completely. He then increase the speed of his candle technique and explains that the Straw Hats will be turned into a group of wax statues, preserving the look of horror on their faces forever. Brogy then tries to get up once more but fails, and Zoro inspired by his attempt, resolves to cut off his own legs to escape, and his resolve inspires Brogy to try one last time to get up. Fortunately Luffy, Carue and Usopp arrive before they go through with it and vow to defeat the baroque works agents, with Zoro asking Luffy to destroy the candle to which he agrees, but Mr. 3 saying that he will not let him.
