The Pillar Man, Santana, Part 3 (「柱の男・サンタナ」 その③, 'Hashira no Otoko Santana' Sono 3), originally Santana Disappears (消えたサンタナ, Kieta Santana) in the WSJ and tankobon releases, is the twelfth chapter of Battle Tendency and the fifty-sixth chapter of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.


Joseph learns from Donovan that Speedwagon is still alive and being held in a secure Nazi base. Joseph sheds tears of joy, then notices Donovan trying to escape and ties him to a cactus.

At the Nazi base, Joseph attempts to sneak in by cross-dressing as a girl. He walks up to the guards at the gate with two bottles of tequila during a body check. Due to his musclebound stature, he is immediately discovered and held at gunpoint. Joseph quickly uses the Ripple on the tequila bottles, causing the corks to pop out and hit a palm tree nearby. The coconuts in the tree fall down and hit the guards on the head. Joseph uses this moment to kick them in the face and knock them out, after which he quickly puts on one of their uniforms.

Back in the Nazi base, Santana has suddenly vanished from the room he was being secured in. Confused, Stroheim orders them to stop the oxygen flow into the room and play their recording of the events. On the film, they see Santana running towards the wall and suddenly begin shape-shifting his bones and muscles. He manages to squeeze himself through a metal grate and starts traveling through the Nazi base in the air ducts.
