    “ People often say "If it's one-on-one, Kaido will win." On land, sea, and air... among all living things, he is a pirate who is known as the "strongest creature"!!! ”
    — Ending narration of Kaido's introduction.


    Is this Oda overshadowing how the 'king of hundred beasts' can be taken down ? This is more of trying to 'read between the lines' than a theory per se.

    We have so little to go on and there are no detailed descriptions of how Kaido was defeated in the past. But we do know that he was defeated. Can we assume that he was defeated by the teams and not any individual? If we consider this assumption, Luffy might have to forfeit his way of handling the biggest baddie in the arc on his own and take help from his vice captain.

    Honestly as it stands right now, I don't think Luffy, Zoro and Law combined can defeat Kaido. He's just too strong. I think this because it took a drunk Kaido one hit and barely using his power to take down a Gear 4th Luffy.

    Hell, I doubt one Admiral could take him down (hence the quote if it's one-on-one). It would probably take 2 Yonko or 2 (possibly 3 depending on who) Admirals in my opinion.

    This bein in Kaido's Human Form (since his Dragon Form seems to have many easier hit spots)

    Omg hype if this is gonna be the case!! I would love a Zoro + Luffy collaboration in battle again! Even if he needs more help from others, as long as Zoro and Luffy get some screentime together, I'll be hyped :'D

    Yepp. It may not be in this arc. But even in distant future, I think Kaido will stand too strong for them to go mano e mano. Mainly i want to highlight the fact that he can't be taken down by any single known SH and SH-ally individual.

    Yuss. I'm thinking all the super novas declaring 'open Kaido season', all of them pitching in to take down this 'moby dick' of a Yonko.

    This arc, I think Zoro would take half an asswhooping followed by Luffy taking the other half. Law would try taking them away, but kaidou would be mad because he wasn't prepared to give out more than one asswhooping.

    If they go training and then come back. Luffy best be able to take Kaidou on one on one.

    A Luffy/Zoro team up would be nice. ^_^

    I foresee the remnants of the Whitebeards showing up to support Luffy and pitching in to help. Just because Marco’s not coming doesn’t mean the rest of them aren’t going to make an appearance to honor another of Ace’s promises perhaps. Or the message from Marco is Kaido’s weakness. Sorry that just popped into my head. It’s probably not the right place to post it though.

    Yes, WB pirates must have clashed with Kaido in the past so its logical to assume Marco knows a thing or two about how to take on the dragon emperor. Plus, he has scars on his body, one of them placed prominently just below his chest, so he CAN get injured.

    I hope not. That would be too much for Zoro's part to get involved with a fight against the Yonko. Besides, Zoro knows and respects his captain so much: that Luffy won't like to see his crew getting in trouble with someone very dangerous just because of him.

    Do you say that because it’s A yonko or THIS yonko? Because Brook, Jimbei, Nami and Sanji all attacked Big Mom directly.

    Edit: Also, Zoro respects Luffy but also will call him on his BS and put him in his place when needed.

    The Empress Big Mom attack is a separate case, in Wano, we have Luffy taking on Emperor Kaido.

    Hmm, I guess this would explain what I'm trying to say better, in a war where Luffy is going to fight any Yonko, I'm sure someone in the crew like Zoro will say: "Kaido fight is Luffy's fight."

    And it's another story if Zoro encounters Emperor Kaido or the latter is trying to kill him, like for instance, Zoro is around when Emperor Kaido attacked Okobore Town.

    Ah okay so it’ll be more like Luffy’s response to Zoro taking on Mihawk, in your opinion.
