"When the Kingdom's Rule is Over! The Flag of Conviction Lasts Forever" is the 89th episode of the One Piece anime.
Inside the castle, Nami gets a coat and prepares to escape while Kureha's occupied, wanting to get back on the sea and get Vivi back to Alabasta. She walks out of the treatment room only to catch sight of Wapol, who immediately identifies her as one of Luffy's crew. He chases her on her ledge, but gets stuck in a stairway. He uses Baku Baku Factory: Slim-Up Wapol to eat himself and become skinny. The moment he tackles Nami to consume her, however, he gets a foot to the face from Luffy. Nami conks him over the head for damaging her jacket; it cost her 28,800 after bargaining. She insists he pay her 100,000 for it.
Wapol interrupts from the doorway to the castle armory, which only he has a key for. His plan is to eat all the weapons with Baku Baku Factory to become a human weapon. But when he reaches for his key, he finds it gone, and runs up the column stairway with Luffy following. Nami is disappointed; she swiped that key hoping it opened the treasury. Sanji, still debilitated by his re-injured back, crawls back to Nami. Wapol is determined to re-take his kindgom and get his revenge. He gets to the top dome of the castle and uncovers his ultimate weapon: the Royal Drum Crown Seven-Shot Bliking Cannon. Luffy arrives, and Wapol fires the cannon at him. It makes some motions, but shoots nothing. Wapol tries the trigger lever a couple times, but it would appear the cannon is empty. All are come out are snowbirds that were nesting inside.
As Chopper waits outside for the battle's final outcome, villagers have assembled at the base of the Drum Ropeway, which is also Dr. Kureha's house. A gondola is taking some soldiers along with Zoro, Usopp, Vivi and Dalton. Usopp wonders if Dalton should've come at all, since he's still recovering from his injuries and hypothermia. But he is determined to see Wapol defeated and his kingdom destroyed. Back at the castle, Luffy grabs Wapol, saying the battle is over. What he is doesn't matter, since he is a pirate. Wapol says assaulting him is a crime against the World Government, which Drum Kingdom is a part of. He opens his mouth wide to eat Luffy, but Luffy's rubber fingers stretch around it. Wapol turns his tongue into Gero Cannon to shoot luffy.
On the Drum Ropeway, Dalton remembers how Wapol captured most of Drum's doctors, and his ministers claimed government didn't need to be good to its people. Dr. Hiluluk changed that opinion for him. He reveals he has dynamite, and will destroy the castle when they get there. Dr. Kureha asks Chopper if he's worried about Luffy. Chopper responds he doesn't need to, since he's a pirate. Sure enough, Luffy is unharmed by Wapol's cannon, and uses Gomu Gomu no Bowgun to fire Wapol upward, getting him stuck in the top of the dome. He sees Dr. Hiluluk's jolly roger on another spire of the castle where Luffy re-planted it after he tried to shoot it down. Dr. Kureha tells Chopper the end of Drum Kingdom has finally come.
As Chopper remembers Dr. Hiluluk, Luffy tells Wapol not to mess with the jolly roger if he's not prepared to take the consequences. Ignoring pleas by Wapol, including giving him title, Luffy uses Gomu Gomu no Bazooka to launch Wapol off the island and out of sight as everyone watches. The Drum Ropeway gondola arrives at the castle. Luffy pounces Zoro and Usopp from the top of the castle, at first thinking Zoro was one of Wapol's men because he was wearing one of their coats. He tells Vivi that Nami and Sanji are fine. As Dalton makes his way off the gondola, Luffy says he was "beating up a king". Dalton realizes Wapol has been defeated. He adds "the reindeer" beat up Wapol's ministers. Dalton notices Chopper, who is "hiding" behind a tree, and remembers him from the ambush on Dr. Hiluluk. Realizing Chopper has always been fighting for them, he bows to the reindeer, thanking him, and vowing he will rebuild the country.
The other villagers arrive, and identify Chopper as the island's monster. Dalton tries to stop their fear as Usopp also cries out that he's a monster, but more out of excitement. Luffy says not to call Chopper a monster: he's their new crewmate! Chopper runs off, and Luffy gives chase. As he runs, Chopper wonders if this is how his own adventure is going to begin.
