Kaido of the Hundred Beasts is a term that is currently on every One Piece anime fans minds. With the popular anime reaching Act two of its Wano Arc, Kaido has already shown what he is capable of.
Kaido who is one of the Four Emperors of the Sea in the One Piece anime already faced Luffy Gear 3rd and Luffy Bounce Man and did not even get a scratch on himself. Kaido then finished off our beloved Straw Hat with one blow and currently has him as a prisoner cuffed with sea prism stones.
No wonder the Yonko of the Sea is also known as the strongest creature in the world. In the new world, Kaido is the ruler of the Land of Wano along with his Animal Kingdom Pirates.
Kaido is a relatively new character in the One Piece world as he has not featured much in the top anime. That being said, he is the main villain in the Wano Arc which will reveal a lot more attributes of the Yonko but before that here are 10 things about Kaido that you should know before watching the Wano Arc.
Many of us would think that the emperor of the sea was first introduced in the One Piece world after the time-skip after Monkey D. Luffy and Trafalgar Law took down Donquixote Doflamingo in the Dressrosa arc. However, true One Piece fans will argue that the leader of the Beast Pirates was first introduced by Monkey D. Garp at Water 7 when he spoke about the Yonkos of the sea to his grandson Luffy.
In the anime, Kaido made his entrance in Chapter 795, whereas in the One Piece manga, the current ruler of the Wano Land first appeared in Chapter 739. Both one-piece chapters are titled Suicide in which the strongest creature of the world lands at Kid’s base after jumping from a sky island and getting up without a single scratch on his body.
If you wish to check out a list of one piece episodes or list of any anime episodes,I have written an entire article on where you will find the best results to stream your favorite episodes of any anime.
AFFILIATED WITH ROCK PIRATES
The strongest creature of the popular anime was once a member of the legendary pirate group Rocks Pirates who alone ruled over the seas for almost 40 years prior to the current storyline of One Piece. However, as the story goes, Roger and Garp, together allegedly took down the captain of the Rocks Pirates Rocks D. Xebec which ended the pirate group’s reign as the ruler of the seas.
However, back then Kaido was solely a member of Rocks D. Xebec’s crew, and he was not so strong as to fight against the prominent figures of that time. This is the same time period when Shanks and Buggy were also just apprentices on Gol D. Roger’s ship.
TRUE PIRATES NATURE
In the One Piece universe many pirates no matter how bad they are, fight with principles. However, Kaido is shrewd, cunning and does not abide by any such principles. He does not mind playing dirty tricks to get his work done. Something which was quite evident when he tried to intercept Whitebeard who was on his way to rescue Ace.
Kaido challenged the previous much-loved ruler of the Wano Country, Koden Oden who fought valiantly and got Kaido heavily injured, however, Kurozumi Higurashi laid a ploy and saved the strongest creature in One Piece. The two of them than planned a sneak attack on Oden Sama, catching him off guard and murdered the had him murdered.
Eiichiro Oda has yet not entirely revealed what makes Kaido invulnerable to damage. The Yonko has gotten so bored of living which has forced him to make several suicide attempts. It has got to such a point that the ruler of Wano land has made attempting to kill himself his favorite hobby.
Kaido has also on several occasions said that he aims to start the greatest war in the One Piece Universe. And with the captain of the Big Mom Pirates Charlotte Linlin making her way in the Land of Wana, as well as Eiichiro Oda announcing that the Wano Arc is set to be the best One Piece Arc yet, expect big things to happen in the next few weeks in the One Piece Anime.
I do not wish to give out any spoilers it would be best if you guys watch the popular anime for yourself, Luffy vs Kaido round 1 has already gone in Kaido’s favor and we cannot wait to see what’s next.
If you are looking for a platform to stream One Piece Anime, I have written an entire article of the best app which lets you watch almost the latest animes.
Right from Monkey D. Luffy’s “Shishishi,” to Whitebeard’s “Gurararara”, Eiichiro Oda surely knows how to give his popular anime characters a peal of unique laughter as per their characters.
Fans love this aspect and Oda did not disappoint while giving Kaido his unique laughter either.
Notably, the Yonko has two different laughters the “Worororo” which he uses often and the “Fuhihihi” which he uses while he is drunk.
DEVIL FRUIT USER
Many One Piece characters have said that Kaido is indeed a Devil Fruit user. And with him transforming into a dragon some may even argue that he is perhaps a Mythical Zoan Dragon Fruit user.
However, do not let the fact that Kaido can transform into a dragon implies that he is a Zoan Dragon Fruiteater. Even Momonusuke transformed into a dragon when he was scared of Kaido’s dragon breath. Both signs indicating that Kaido might be a dragon and his human form is some kind of Hito Hito no Mi Model. After all, he is called the strongest creature in the One Piece Universe.
One thing is for sure that Kaido is a devil fruit user however Oda is yet to reveal which devil fruit user us the leader of the beast pirates, who knows maybe it is a devil fruit which is maybe the strongest in the one Piece universe.
Yonko Kaido is a character in the One Piece universe who is said to be indestructible. The character had the audacity to jump from heaven to the ground and did not receive even a single scratch.
Luffy Gear fourth which defeated the likes of DoFlamingo and Charlotte Katakuri also could not even scratch Yonko’s skin and was beaten with a single blow.
The only time Kaido received a wound was from Oden Sama’s Ame no Habakiri and Enma.
The true reason for this near invincibility is yet a mystery fan theories around claim that it might be an advanced Ryuo usage form or Kaido’s devil fruit.
Perhaps, similar to Yonko Big Mom who has a physical ability of impenetrable, Yonko Kaido must have the same ability.
KAIDO’s LOSING STREAK
For being termed as the strongest creature in the world, it is quite surprising that Kaido has a losing streak. As a matter of fact, the Yonko has tasted defeat in battle seven times, in addition to which his rivals the Yonkos and Marines have captured the beast eighteen times.
Eiichiro Oda has also said that Kaido’s rivals have tried to execute him in 40 occasions and have tortured him on numerous occasions.
Notably, it is still a mystery as to why no one was successful in executing the Yonko and knowing Oda and his creativity, at the right time we may perhaps get an entire episode on Kaido’s history.
For a being of Kaido’s stature, it is natural that he has an extremely high bounty. To make things more interesting, Kaido’s bounty is currently the highest active bounty in the One Piece Universe.
Only WhiteBeard and Gol D. Roger are said to have a higher bounty that the Yonko who’s bounty is 4,611,100,000 berries as per Sengoku and Brannew.
HE CAN CONTROL THE WEATHER
Did you guys notice when Kaido first appeared as a dragon the weather also dramatically changed?
Oda also subtly gave an easter egg that Kaido can control the weather when Nami, the navigator of the “Mugiwaras” had a concerned face as the weather changed when Kaido appeared. It may be the power of Kaido’s mythical Zoan fruit or might have to do with the fact that he is not human.
Big Mom, another pirate Yonko can also control the weather through Zeus and Prometheus.
With the anime One Piece going into its Wano Arc, I hope I could brief you guys well enough with the Yonko Kaido.
