A self proclaimed brilliant strategist, Mr. 3 prides himself that his plans are supposedly flawless, and was ordered to kill the Straw Hat Pirates and decided to claim the bounty on the giants Dorry and Broggy. Mr. 3 ate the Doru Doru no Mi (Wax Wax Fruit in the English), giving him the power to produce molten wax from any part of his body. However, he can't turn himself into wax. He sabotages a sacred battle between the two giants and then captures Vivi, Nami, and Zoro creating a huge, spinning wax cake he made with his devil fruit abilities to rain wax down upon them, the desired effect being that the three will slowly be encased in wax, and suffocate to death. This would also give Mr. 3 human wax statues, as he admits he has trouble making perfect human wax figures himself. Mr. 3 was defeated at the end along with three other Baroque Works Officer Agents, Miss Goldenweek, Mr. 5, and Miss Valentines Day.
After the defeat, he is then send to the impel down, to be held captives in the second level of Impel down. When Luffy attempt to save Ace, Luffy met him after Buggy the clown on the way to level 5 where Ace is held. Luffy freed him thinking naively he is going to help him save Ace with him.
But Mr. 3 had other plans; his escape plan with Buggy prioritizes more than Luffy's mission after all. He also deems Luffy's mission impossible.
