Who is stronger Kaido or Shanks


Kaidoof the 100 beasts (jap. 百 獣 の カ イ ド ウ, Hyakujū no Kaidō) is one of the 4 emperors and is active in the New World.[2] He is the captain of the 100 Beasts Pirate Gang and holds the position of the Governor (jap. 総 督, Sōtoku).[3] According to Trafalgar Law, it is the "strongest creature"(jap. 最強 の 生物, Saikyō no Seibutsu)[4] He has a daughter named Yamato whom he calls his son.[5] Plagued by various mental ailments such as drunkenness and thoughts of suicide, he is currently putting together an armed force and preparing a war against the whole world.


Kaido 20 years ago without a goatee
Kaido 20 years ago without a goatee

Kaido is more than three times the size of an average person and has two similarly shaped horns on his head as Oz and Little Oz Jr. He has a muscular body that is also covered with numerous scars. There is a tattoo on his left arm, the pattern of which is reminiscent of scales and which also depicts a skull at the bottom. As clothing, he only wears a spiked bracelet on both sides and trousers that are held in place with a belt and attached to chains. Otherwise he was mostly seen shirtless. His black hair and mustache of the same color are noticeably long. He also has a small, multi-jagged goatee that he has grown over the last 20 years.


Kaido is a confident and cruel warrior who never misses an opportunity to make his plans come true. So he wanted to attack Whitebeard when he was busy saving Ace from the Navy. Nor did he hesitate to go into battle against Big Mom, an empress of equal skill. Contrary to all expectations, this ultimately resulted in an alliance between the two. Together they wanted to subjugate the world before they fight each other to the blood again.[6]

He also appears to be someone who knows no mercy and refuses to negotiate, which makes it very unwise to provoke, anger, or underestimate him. This was particularly evident when even Don Quixote de Flamingo, one of the Seven Samurai, feared Kaido's wrath when he was no longer able to fulfill his end of the bargain with him as Law held Caesar Crown hostage.[7] Another example of this is that he had Kouzuki Oden killed in a particularly cruel way because he did not want to share his secrets with him. He didn't stop at Momonosuke either, mocking him after Oden's death and leaving Momonosuke to the flames of the burning castle.[8]He also attacked O-Tama and Speed ​​without consideration, even though he was dealing with a child.[9]He does not even show mercy in front of his own child. As a child, he beat Yamato several times for wanting to be like Kouzuki Oden, set sail and go out to sea. To make sure that she did not leave Onigashima, he put exploding handcuffs on her at the age of 8 and made her a prisoner.[10] However, the relationship between the two does not seem to be entirely clear, as he called her a "son" despite her ambitions and also intended that she should rule New Onigashima as a shogun, against which she vehemently protests.[11][12]

Kaido shortly before his jump from the sky island.

Kaido is tired of being alive for so long and already regards suicide as a hobby. In fact, Kaido sees death as something that makes a person perfect in the first place. In his eyes, Roger and Whitebeard had done everything right. Therefore, he also praised the intransigence and determination of the samurai when Kikunojo did not mourn her lost arm but wanted to keep fighting.[13] Since he cannot find eternal rest, he now wants to destroy what he sees as a boring world in an ultimate war.[14] For this he planned to build a large army with warriors who were equipped with artificial devil fruits, the smiles. After De Flamingo's defeat, which resulted in the immediate stop of the Smile trade, Kaido mourned De Flamingo's weakness and his plan to further expand his Zoan army of poisons. His pirate gang does not only consist of Smile users, but also of all sorts of strong warriors who once went into battle against him and lost. The Emperor broke her will and forced her to sail under his flag, as he did with Basil Hawkins. In contrast, Eustass Kid and Luffy never intended to submit to Kaido. Instead of killing her, however, he had her taken to the Udon convict mine, where her will should be slowly broken. In general, he doesn't think much of the new generation and initially made fun of Luffy and Law, who would only play pirates.[15] In some ways, he doesn't take her seriously, but he still recognizes her strength. This is a trait he also displayed in the battle on the roof of Onigashima, when Jack was defeated by Nekomamushi and Inuarashi in their Su Long form. Jack apologized to Kaido for his failure, but Kaido did not blame Jack for losing it. He wasn't too weak, but his opponents were simply too strong.[16]

Despite his strength and arrogance, Kaido sometimes does not act irrationally and avoids conflict when the situation allows. Twenty years ago he stated that if Oden and Hyogoro form an alliance and take action against Kaido, he was concerned that he might end up in a losing battle. So he let Orochi enter into a peaceful trade in Oden, so that Kaido had time to build his army over the next five years.[17] Even when Big Moms appeared on Wa no Kuni, Kaido was furious that he would be drawn into an all-decisive war because she also had her children in tow and ordered his subordinates to do everything possible to prevent their intrusion.[18]

Kaido's mood swings under the influence of alcohol.

Kaido also has a certain sense of honor. Since the latter had only won his fight against Oden because Higurashi disguised himself as Momonosuke and distracted the samurai for a moment, he later killed her. When Oden was executed, he apologized to him for this circumstance.[19] Then he killed Oden with his weapon, because although he had won the bet against Orochi, he was already as good as dead from cooking in the kettle.[20] He also preferred a fair fight against Big Mom and had her handcuffs released after she was caught by Queen. Nevertheless, this does not stop him from lying for his own benefit and deceiving Oden, for example.[21]He also gets rid of his own allies when they have served their purpose, as in the case of Orochi, which he did not need for his New Onigashima project.[22]

Kaido's mood is heavily influenced by alcohol. In this way, traits reveal themselves in him that you would never expect from him, such as a very emotional side that makes him cry uncontrollably. But his mood can change unexpectedly after just a few sips, so that the same thing that brought tears to his eyes before makes him rage. In addition, in this state he seems to hate being said to be weak. Since, to his annoyance, he quickly sobered up again, Kaido is always willing to keep drinking.[23]

Skills and strength

As one of the Four Emperors, Kaido, along with Shanks, Blackbeard and Big Mom, is one of the four most powerful pirates in the world. With a bounty of 4,611,100,000 he currently has the highest active bounty, which is only surpassed by the now inactive bounties of Roger and Whitebeard. He once won Gecko Moria in a battle against the samurai of the seas and killed all of his crew.[24][25] Two years ago he dared to defeat Whitebeard,[26] and, according to the Five Wise Men, is one of the few people who can still stop Blackbeard.[27]

Kaido has gathered a considerable number of followers in his active years. His own pirate gang now has a total of 20,000 members. Among them are strong fighters whose will and ambitions Kaido has broken all to join his gang. As with other emperors, several islands are under his control. One of them is Wa no Kuni, the homeland of the samurai, where his gang is currently stationed. Long ago he formed an alliance with the island's current shogun, Kurozumi Orochi. With the help of Caesar and De Flamingo, he has also succeeded in building an army of over 500 devil power users, the so-called Gifters.[28][29] His so-called main representatives Jack, Queen and King are among his strongest fighters within his gang. Each of them has a bounty of at least a billion berries. Among them are the Flying Six, some of them even former pirate captains who have joined Kaido, such as Sasaki and Who's Who. Furthermore, X. Drake, Scratchmen Apoo and Basil Hawkins entered into an alliance with him. Eustass Kid, Killer and Monkey D. Luffy, however, were defeated and captured by him.

Kaido is considered "the strongest creature in the world"(こ の 世 に お け る 最強 生物, Kono Yo Ni Okeru Saikyō Seibutsu).[14] Already on Punk Hazard it was suggested that he could kill Don Quixote de Flamingo, a world-famous pirate and former samurai of the seas, without any problems. He is very afraid of Kaido and no price is too high for him not to have to draw his anger on himself. De Flamingo didn't even show any respect, let alone fear, to Whitebeard or the admirals at Naval Headquarters. Trafalgar Law also claimed that even in alliance with the Straw Hat gang, their chance of defeating Kaido was only 30 percent. It is also reported that Kaido always wins in a 1-on-1. That this fear is not unjustified is because nobody in the world seems to be able to kill him. According to stories, Kaido has been captured several times, but every attempt to execute him was unsuccessful because every blade broke on his body. Not even he can kill himself by throwing himself off a heavenly island 10,000 meters above sea level, which only gives him a headache. That's why he's been looking for a way to die for a long time and even considers suicide his hobby.[14]

Even Luffy's attacks in the Gear 4 with standard armor hooks could not harm him. Instead, Kaido initially put up with his attacks without much resistance, without suffering any visible injury. Only the sword "Enma" in the hands of Kouzuki Oden is considered to be the only weapon that could ever harm him. What kind of power this means can be seen from the fact that Kaido suffered a multitude of attacks against the nine red scabbards, including a Boro Breath turned against himself. Even Kinemon, Denjiro, Nekomamushi and Ashura Doji, who are strong samurai in their own right, did not manage to reopen Kaido's old wound from Oden in a combo. Although they managed to make the emperor bleed with their attack, Kaido stated that their attacks were far too weak compared to Odens' attack power. As with Big Mom, this speaks for an incredibly robust skin on the part of Kaidos.[30] Ultimately, Kaido was able to do all nine red scabbards single-handedly.

In combat, Kaido demonstrated tremendous physical strength. For Luffy, it only took one hit with his spiked club to defeat him.[31][32]Kaido's extremely advanced handling of Haki is responsible for this. He is one of the few people who can master all three forms - king, armor and observation haki - and uses them on a level that even Trafalgar Law cannot move around in his "room".[33] Another special feature is that he can pull his spiked club through with his king shaki. This ability, otherwise only shown by the most powerful fighters like Gol D. Roger and Whitebeard, makes his hits many times more devastating. During an exchange of blows with Charlotte Linlin, who can also release these forces, the sky split, just like when Shanks and Whitebeard met two years ago.[34] In this form, visible lightning effects also occur, which characterize these attacks. After Kaido and Big Mom had combined their forces and started a combo attack, a pressure wave emerged, which towered clearly above the already gigantic skull of Onigashima and left a trail of devastation.[35] In addition to his already brutal physique, his devil powers and his armor haki, this makes Kaido a force of nature that apparently trumps everything and can knock out even notorious pirates like Luffy completely in a few blows. Despite his large, muscular body, Kaido also sets an extremely fast pace in his attacks. He is so fast that he can even meet Luffy, although he looks into the future for a moment with his observation hookah.[36]

Kaido's dragon devil powers

That Kaido is known as the "strongest creature" in the world and Whitebeard the "strongest person"the world was, is already an indication of his zoan devil powers of the fish-fruit, model: blue dragon, with which he can transform into a giant snake-like dragon.[37] As such, it not only has hard scales that protect it like armor from enemy attacks, but it can also fly in the air by creating clouds on which it moves around.[38]With its so-called flame clouds, Kaido can even lift and transport entire islands such as Onigashima into the air.[39] In addition, he can not only emit a massive jet of fire from his mouth, but also lightning and cutting wind blades, with which he severed Kikunojo's arm, among other things.[40][41][42] Kaido can also combine the wind blades with a self-generated tornado. To do this, he rotates his long dragon body in a circle to create a hurricane strong enough to blow people up.[43]It can emit a massive jet of fire from its mouth.


The Rocks pirate gang

The Rocks pirate gang

40 years ago Kaido joined the legendary Rocks pirates and their captain Rocks D. Xebec as an apprentice. Shiki, Whitebeard, Charlotte Linlin, and Captain John included. Two years later there was a fight between the Rocks pirates and Vice Admiral Monkey D. Garp on the island of God Valley, who was supported by the later pirate king Gol D. Roger. In what would later become known as the God Valley Incident, the Rocks pirates were defeated.[44]That day, Big Mom gave him the fish fruit, so he owes her a favor.[45][46]Kaido also owes Charlotte Linlin a favor from the old days.[45] 33 years ago, the former members began to found their own pirate gangs.[47] Since becoming a pirate, he has suffered 7 defeats, was captured 18 times by the navy or enemy ships and has been tortured countless times.[14] At an unknown point in time, Kaido managed to obtain one of four road porn glyphs that could be used to locate the island of Laugh Tale.[48]

Cast Wa no Kunis - Moria's nemesis

Kaido vs Moria

After Kurozumi Orochi had ruled Wa no Kuni, he made an alliance with him.[48] When Kouzuki Oden wanted to finish off the Shogun 25 years ago, Kaido stepped in and they made a deal with him. They would leave Wa no Kuni in peace, provided Oden publicly made a monkey out of himself for five years, to which he agreed. Kaido then enthroned in his dragon form over the capital and the hope of the population waned.[49][50]

23 years ago Gecko Moria turned up with his gang of pirates in Wa no Kuni and a fight broke out in the Kuri region. Although Moria was able to plunder Ryuma's grave,[49] but he lost devastatingly to Kaido. Moria was then afraid of the New World.[24][51]

Kaido vs Oden

Kaido receives his scar

When Oden and his followers then counterattacked 20 years ago, Kaido and his gang of pirates opposed them in Udon. There was a fight. Oden was able to give Kaido his huge scar and gained the upper hand, but in the end Kaido was able to win because Kurozumi Higurashi distracted Oden.[52] For this intervention, however, Kaido later killed Higurashi.[53] A few days later, Oden and his entourage were to be boiled alive, but Oden was able to negotiate a further deal. Whoever survived an hour would get freedom. Kaido agreed and so Oden took a wooden plank and let his followers step on it.[50] However, this agreement was also broken and so Kaido and Orochi decided, although Oden and his followers survived an hour, to shoot them all. While the Akazaya escaped, Kaido shot Oden himself.[53] Then Kaido went to Oden Castle and set it on fire to wipe out Oden's family. However, he did not kill Momonosuke, but left him to die. In the end, however, all of them either escaped or were sent off into the future by Toki.[54][55]

Ten years later, many of the men loyal to the Odes were so desperate that they could not wait another ten years for Kinemon and Co. to return and headed to Onigashima to fight. However, they were all defeated.[56] One day he also clashed with Ashura Doji alias Shutenmaru.[31] Within the last few years, Kaido and Orochi began to trade weapons that were made on Wa no Kuni for artificially produced devil fruits, the smiles. This with the aim of making his subordinates stronger and creating the most feared gang of pirates. He himself was involved in the gruesome naming.[57] Kaido and the Shogun are still allied with each other today.[48]

Attempted attack on Whitebeard

One day before the public execution of Puma D. Ace[58], the commander of the Whitebeard Gang's 2nd Division, attacked Kaido Edward Newgate. Kaido's plan was thwarted by Shanks, who stood in the way with his gang Kaido.[26] Whether it came to a real fight, however, is questionable, as Shanks later showed up unharmed in Marine Ford. It can therefore be assumed that Kaido turned back, since he could not take to the field against two other emperors at the same time.[59]


Kaidos winter island

Kaido's subordinates

Once in the New World, the RookieX landed. Drake on a winter island under Kaido's protection. The island itself was pretty dreary and covered with metal plates that flashed out of the snow everywhere.

A group of island guards, led by Cyborg Scotch, got in the way of Drake's pirate gang and as a result issued an explicit warning against the emperor. It was also announced that the island was one of Kaido's favorites. X. Drake ignored the warnings and immediately attacked the island guards. The exact background for his actions is not yet known, but it can be assumed that he wanted to attract Kaido's attention in this way.[60]

Doing business with Smile

Caesar's smile fruits

As it turned out shortly after the arrival of the straw hats in the New World, Kaido worked closely with Don Quixote de Flamingo and his subordinate Caesar Crown. The latter produced for him, under the protection and secrecy of De Flamingos, on the actually closed island Punk HazardSAD, from which artificial devil fruits, called Smile, can be produced. This again happened in a special factory on Dress Rosa, the Kingdom of De Flamingos. After arriving at Punk Hazard, Luffy and Co. met Trafalgar Law, whose main goal was to overthrow Flamingo and Kaido. To do this, Crown had to be defeated and the SAD tank destroyed, which was finally achieved through the alliance of the Straw Hat Gang and Law.[61] With Caesar as a hostage, everyone went to Dress Rosa to blackmail Don Quixote and force him to resign, since he would incur the wrath of Kaido without his scientist.[62] However, the samurai lied about his resignation and instead of a hostage handover, a fight broke out on the neighboring island of Green Bit.[63] Law revealed that he had taken the risk of dying there from the beginning as long as the straw hats can destroy the smile factory, so that Flamingo is destroyed by Kaido, who without the smile cannot maintain his army of Zoan users.[64][65] After De Flamingo's defeat, Kaido’s crew found themselves on a winter island. His subordinates had read up on the latest happenings on Dress Rosa in the newspaper. While looking for her boss, a pirate screams and announces that Joker has been defeated and the deal with Smile has been ended.

Unexpected confrontation

Kaido faces the alliance

Meanwhile, Kaido was looking for a place to die on the sky island Ballon Terminal, where Urouge was staying with his gang at the same time, recovering from a strenuous fight. With the aim of killing himself, he jumped off the island and landed at the current base of the alliance of the Kid, Hawkins and Apoo. He survived the fall and only had a few headaches to complain about. He then vowed to take revenge on Joker and start the war of the century, even if he destroyed the world in the process.[66] However, the members of the Worst Generation were no match for the emperor and were crushed. Eustass Kid was locked in a dungeon by Kaido as a symbol of triumph. Apoo and his crew as well as Hawkins, however, have already integrated into his gang. Even after Jack's defeat on Zou, the long-sleeved man contacted him to report to the emperor that all contact with the commanding officer had been broken off.[67]

An alliance between two emperors?

After the devastating events on Whole Cake Island, the successful escape of the Straw Hat gang and his appointment as fifth emperor by Morgans, Kaido was seen angrily poring over the newspaper and wondering what the Straw Hat was doing in Big Mom's territory.[68] Big Mom later even contacted him personally to forge plans for revenge on the straw hat. With reference to their common past and a favor that he still owed her, the Empress therefore proposed an alliance between the two large calibers. Kaido threatened to kill her if she set foot on Wa no Kuni.[45]

Appeared in Kuri - Luffy vs. Kaido

Kaido defeats Luffy

After Luffy defeatedHoldem and while Jack dueled Shutenmaru, the sky darkened and Kaido appeared in his dragon form in Kuri and ordered his subordinate to bring both Law and Luffy to him.[69] As he was about to cause massive damage in Okobore due to his drunkenness, Hawkins lured him away by telling Kaido that Luffy and Law were in the ruins of Oden Castle. Kaido went straight to the ruins and destroyed them with his fire-breath.

Suddenly Luffy appeared over him and attacked the emperor's head with an elephant gun.[31] However, this recovered very quickly from Luffy's blow, reverting back to his human form. Shortly after he got up he was attacked again by Luffy, who in turn assumed his Gear 4 form and released a Gum-Gum-Kong organ on Kaido. He was hit by the force of the blow on the ground, but also recovered very quickly here and got up with a sigh. Unimpressed by Luffy's attacks and with a scowl, the Emperor attacked Luffy with a single, lightning-fast blow, whereupon he fell to the ground.[32] But even when Luffy was lying on the ground and was mocked by Kaido's subordinates, Kaido found that he was not only alive, but was staring at him with an angry look. Shortly afterwards this "unconsciousness" turned out to be his king shaki, which made everyone except Kaido unconscious. Surprised by the fact that Luffy has the same ability as Kid, Kaido ordered his subordinates to put Luffy in a cell in hopes of breaking his will and adding him to his army. As a result, Kaido found that he was starting to sober up and decided to leave to continue drinking.[70]

Kaido and Charlotte Linlin

A devastating alliance

Some time after his argument with Luffy and the placement of Luffy in his prison, Kaido received the news that Big Mom, her crew and their ship were on their way to Wa no Kuni and that they had climbed the waterfall with the giant carp. Beside himself and full of anger, Kaido ordered his troops to shoot the "old witch" and her ship and her crew and sink them in the ocean. However, all attempts came to nothing and the crew reached Wa no Kuni unscathed, but shortly afterwards, to Kaido's relief, was rammed by one of the "catastrophes", King, and the ship, including Big Mom and her crew, was carried towards the ocean.[71] He later watched the broadcast of the execution of Tonoyasu, once known as Shimotsuki Yasuie.[72]

When Big Mom was brought to Onigashima by the Queen, Kaido ordered his subordinates to free her from her sea stone chains. Their guns collided and the sky over the island split.[34] But they ended their fight and announced that the Pirate Gang of 100 and the Big Mom Pirate Gang had formed an alliance to take over the world.[6]

The fire festival

Kaido defeats the Akazaya

On the day of the fire festival, he asked about his son and when he met the Flying Six, they were assigned to find Yamato.[12] While Kaido was then partying in the company of Black Maria, Orochi and others, Kanjuro appeared and brought Momonosuke to them. However, they were also informed that the rebels have not yet been defeated.[73]Shortly thereafter, Kaido gave a speech to his subordinates, announcing the New Onigashima Project and world domination in alliance with Charlotte Linlin, before executing Orochi and giving his subordinates the choice of joining him or dying.[74] He turned to Momonosuke and gave him a chance to live if he would deny his origin, but he introduced himself as Kouzuki Momonosuke. Before Kaido could react, the Akazaya and Izou crashed through the wall and surprised him. To Kaido's amazement, they fell off the stage with him and could harm him.[75] He changed into his dragon form and flew with them to the top, where more Minks were already waiting, but Jack and his entourage also appeared. After these two parties had switched off, Kaido and the Akazaya finally faced each other.[76] They were able to stand up to the emperor and land a few hits, even bring him to the ground, but picked up again, he unleashed a wind attack and severed Kikunojo's left arm.[77] Back in his human form, Kaido was then able to defeat his opponents.[78]

Battle of Onigashima

Old generation versus new generation
He then raised the entire island and began his plan to make Onigashima the flower capital.[79] A little later, Charlotte Linlin appeared at his place and they swore again to their plan to find the One Piece.[46] However, Killer, Kid, Law, Zorro and Luffy had also made their way to the top and faced the two emperors a little later. While Kaido made sure of victory with Luffy whether he still wanted to become the pirate king, he went to Kinemon and promised that he would win. When Kaido attacked him, the straw hat dodged and gave him a gum-gum-red roc.[80] Then the rest of them intervened and after Kaido was attacked by the three pirate captains, he returned to his dragon form. The emperor then took many hits, but the two emperors seemed invincible together, which is why the supernovae tried to separate them from each other.[81] They succeeded and the Kid and Killer took on Big Mom, so that only Luffy, Law and Zorro, lying on the ground, faced the Emperor Kaido. But although Zorro Kaido was able to inflict a wound, both were attacked by the same person afterwards, whereupon Luffy got up again. Luffy, now sure to have understood Kaido's power, then ordered Law to disappear with Zorro, as he wanted to take over the fight alone.[82] They did not touch in their subsequent attacks.[83]


  • A Kaidō is a historical travel route in Japan, e.g. B. historical roads or sea routes.
  • Kaido owns a distinctive pool that comes out Uo and several ros exists, so Uorororo (in the English VIZ version Worororo). On the other hand, he laughs drunk Fuhihihi.[84]
  • In Kaido's bounty 4.611.100.000 is the number sequence 110, or in Japanese Hyakujuu - Kaido's nickname and the name of his gang of pirates.
  • Kaido's appearance is obviously based on demons from Japanese mythology - Oni (鬼), ogre-like creatures with horns and wild hair, armed with a kanabō, an iron club. Appropriately, his base is on Onigashima. The island occurs with the same name in Japanese mythology, on which the Onis live and is traveled by the hero figure Momotarō. Kouzuki Momonosuke, on the other hand, is a reference to Momotarō.
  • Kaido could be based on the well-known Japanese mythical figure Shuten-dōji (酒 天 童子, although there are other spellings). Shuten-dōji (translated the name means something like "sake drinking boy / lad" or "little drunkard") is an Oni and leader of a group of other Oni and Yōkai. There are different versions of Shuten-dōji's story. Among other things, he is born as an ordinary person to a normal woman and the giant snake Yamata no Orochi. Even as a boy he was extraordinarily strong, which is why he was regarded by everyone as scary and "monster / demon child" (怪 童, Kaido ~ the characters can also stand for "unusually large child endowed with supernatural powers"). Eventually Shuten-dōji turns into an oni and becomes the leader of a group of yōkai. At some point he and his subordinates settle in a large accommodation on Mount Ōe (or Ibuki, depending on the version). From there he regularly terrorizes the people of Kyoto in an alcohol frenzy. He shares this quality with Kaido, who is also a great drunkard. On Kaido's pumpkin bottle, from which he drinks his alcohol, there is also the character for "heaven" (天), which can also be found in Shuten-dōji's name.
    • Another reference to Japanese folklore could be Kintaro. Another name of this hero is Sakata Kaidōmaru (坂 田 怪 童 丸). In addition, Kintarō is the one who captures Shuten-dōji and then becomes a loyal follower of Minamoto no Yorimitsu - the man who ultimately kills Shuten-dōji. Regarding Kaido's devil powers, it should be mentioned that there is a picture of Utagawa Kuniyoshi in which Kintarō is fighting with a large koi carp under a waterfall.
  • Kaido's dragon shape is reminiscent of the wish-fulfilling dragon Shenlong from Dragon Ball.
  • In China, the blue dragon is one of four symbols of the Chinese star constellations. He is one of the dragon gods and represents the east and spring. The blue dragon has also been adopted in other Asian countries, so it is in Japan Seiryu called. Here he is one of the four guardian spirits of the cities and is supposed to protect the city of Kyoto in the east.
  • Kaido has the official reputation of the "protective deity" on Wa no Kuni (Japanese 明王, Myōō) who protects the land. This is an allusion to the Wisdom Kings, who are considered the protective deities of Buddhism in Vajrayana.
  • Kaido has eaten from the fish fruit (Uo Uo no Mi), but cannot turn into a fish, but into a dragon. The origin behind it is probably in a Chinese legend, in which Koi carp swim up a river every year, at the end of which there is a waterfall. The koi carp then climb the waterfall. If you make it and reach the so-called dragon gate, which is located on top of the waterfall, you transform yourself into a dragon as a reward. However, only a few koi carp make it. This is how the saying "The carp passes the dragon gate" originated in China - it means that something has finally been achieved after a great deal of effort. This is appropriate in that Wa no Kuni is a mountain-like island with waterfalls flowing from it, which are flooded by giant koi fish. There were the following indications before the unveiling:
    • On May 1st, Kaido's birthday, Japan celebrates Koi Day (鯉 の 日, Koi No Hi).[85] Coincidentally, episode 739, in which Kaido appears for the first time, was also broadcast in Japan that day.
    • Uorororo can be found in Kaido's prominent pool Uo, the Japanese word for "fish" (魚).
