Sanji has memories of his escape from the Germa Kingdom, meeting Zeff, and later joining the Straw Hats as his family heads to the Whole Cake Chateau. Luffy and Nami ride King Baum out of the Seducing Woods, and they contact Chopper and Carrot, who reveal where Sanji is headed as they are pursued by Brûlée. They manage to hide again, but Brûlée brings Randolph, his crane, and the Noble Croc into the world to help her hunt the duo down, and Chopper gets the idea to gain control of Brûlée's power. Back in the real world, Luffy and Nami reach Sanji, and Luffy reunites with his crewmate. However, Sanji kicks Luffy out of the carriage, claiming to have accepted his royal heritage and disowning Luffy.
