"Essence of a Mighty Sword! The Power to Cut Steel and the Breath of All Things" is the 119th episode of the One Piece anime.

Short SummaryEdit

Nami is victorious against Miss Doublefinger. Meawhile, Zoro is fighting Mr. 1 who has the ability to turn his body into steel. Zoro learns to cut through steel and finally defeats him.

Long SummaryEdit

Nami is seen defeating Ms. Doublefinger, using the Clima-Tact's Tornado Tempo which is powerful enough to send her opponent through two walls and is knocked out. Falling to the ground exhausted, Nami thanks Usopp for providing her with a weapon she can use.

Meanwhile, Roronoa Zoro is struggling in his fight against Mr. 1 due to his inability to cut through steel. After prolonged battle where Zoro displays a wide variety of techniques against the assassin, he thinks back back to when his old mentor said that a swordsman who can cut nothing can cut anything including steel. Still not understanding this idea, he is forced onto the defensive from Mr. 1's attacks which climax with the latter creating multiple spinning blades on his arm, landing a direct hit on the swordsman. Unable to defend against it Zoro falls against a pillar, and Mr. 1 delivers what he believes is the final blow that further wounds Zoro and destroying the pillar he was leaning on, causing the pillar and arch fall on top of him.

Mr. 1 begins to walk away, but quickly notices that Zoro has gotten up once again. Wondering out loud how Zoro was able to dodge all of the flying debris, the swordmsman claims that he did not dodge it all, and that he just was able to sense where no debris was falling and went there. Further elaborating to himself, Zoro notes that he can sense the rhythm of all things around him and can tell where his sword is, turning over a stone to finds it. Picking it up, he then turns and slashes at some leaves on a tree without cutting them, before then cutting a rock clean in half. Finally coming to an understanding of his teacher's words, he then attacks Mr. 1 anyway with only one sword. Zoro then proves he was finally able to cut Mr. 1 and defeats him, collapsing to the ground and wonders if everyone else is okay.
