Kaido | The king of the beasts
Part I: Introduction
Kaido of the beasts is the Governor-General of the Beast Pirates and one of the five Yonkou of the sea. Originally beginning his life as a pirate as an apprentice aboard the crew of Rocks D. Xebec, Kaido grows to become one of the most feared pirates of the world, having fought legends of the past such as Garp, Gol D Roger, and Oden in his younger years to the like of Shanks in his recent years. Kaido has one of if not the best raw stats resumes in One piece I will try my best to show what he is capable of.
Other than his raw stats, Kaido is a versatile fighter with multiple elemental abilities and great mastery of Haki, so I will be presenting Kaido as more than just a raw stats brute who doesn't do anything else other than punching and kicking. Also, I will be using a lot of raw distance feats cuz I think a special friend needs some.
Part II: Striking Strength
First I want to establish Kaido as a casual country buster, And at his most casual, he easily capable of one-shotting Gear 4 Luffy, And Luffy has stayed conscious from pretty insane stuff, such as taking a beating from Katakuri that lasted nearly 3 hours and that despite Katakuri that stated to be his everything superior, Which includes Gear 4 where Luffy punches were casually smacked away by Katakuri. And Gear 4 Luffy has shown being able to casually flex out of Doflamingo's strings without any issue:
While Jozu a guy who was completely Immobilize by a pre-time-skip Doflamingo was able to stop a slash from Mihawk, who even at his most casual can accidentally slash through at least 1 km worth of Aokiji's Ice, And Aokiji even at casual can easily freeze post-Skypiea Luffy rendering him completely defenseless and immobile, and Skypiea Luffy while carrying a huge Golden ball on his hand punched away the clouds in skypiea which was revealed in later panels to have completely clear the sky of Skypiea, making a huge place like upper yard look like nothing, a place which would have taken Luffy and his crew about 4 hours to travel from Jaya to around where the knock-up stream was located (which is also around where Upper Yard was hit by it). Ships in the 1700s had a max speed of 20 knots which would about 92 miles or 148 km in 4 hours pretty insane stuff. To put this in simple words:
A casual Kaido one-shot Gear 4 Luffy who can take a beating from a character stronger than him and Gear 4 Luffy is a character who can flex out of attack that held a character who can stop an energy attack from a character that accidentally slash through Ice that held a character who busted clouds far past a 92 miles or 148 km size Island.
Our next feat comes much earlier in Kaido's career when he one-shotted Oden with a nameless attack, And Oden is durable enough to take slashes from Roger without any visible injury on his body, as you can already see in the scan Roger is basically WB's equal, meaning that slash would be more or less equal to WB's swings. And We know that Whitebeard's Swings are more or less equal to his Quake, shown by Shanks who matched his slash having no problem blocking punches from Akainu that matched his Quakes. So Yea basically taking a slash from Roger would be more or less equivalent to taking a Quake from Prime WB. Before moving to how strong WB's Quakes are, I will first start by pointing out that you should keep in mind that Prime WB is so much stronger than Old WB that he was passively doing things Old WB needed entire move set for:
Getting that out the way, We first have BB barely being able to control his Quake was capable of trowing an attack large enough to reach Shabody, And We know it takes a Pirate ship about a week to travel the distance between Amazon lily and Impel down, as I already showed Ships in the 1700s had a max speed of 20 knots, In a week that would about 3864 miles or 6218 km. Eyeballing that distance, I would say it about six times bigger than the distance between Marineford and Shabody, which would make the distance between Marineford and Shabody around 644 miles or 1036 km, doubling that distance since the Quake also went the opposite way, which would be around 1288 miles or 2072 km, keep in mind that this feat can be replicated passively by Prime Beard, making a Young Kaido an at least solid Large country if not more buster.
Part III: Durability
Unlike strength, Kaido's durability external durability is pretty unknown since every time he has shown being hurt was either due to Ryou or Eternal attacks. First, we will start with Kaido being completely unscratched by a full assault from Luffy:
And as you saw I already establish Luffy as a character who can flex out of attack that held a character who can stop an energy attack from a character that accidentally slash through Ice that held a character who busted clouds far past a 92 miles or 148 km size island.
Our Next feat comes when a young Kaido took a Ryou slash from Oden, and as you already know Oden can match non-Haki Prime Bread, and as I already establish that would make him more or less equal to at least a casual attack from Prime Beard, A character that can passively replicate BB's Marineford feat. Then we also have him easily taking a full power Ryou Ashura from Zoro who was also strong enough to momentarily block a combined attack from Hybrid Kaido and Big mom:
This should tell you that Kaido has no problem taking Internal attacks that are around his own lvl of striking, making his external durability at worst miles ahead of his Internal durability.
Part IV: Combat Speed
As you already know Kaido is pretty fast and I won't really waste anyone's time about this, casually blitzing Gear 4 in Base, then will go on to bliz him again and that despite Luffy seeing the future, as you already know Luffy while equipped with a far less power Haki called light beam from Pacifista too slow and Light beam from Pacifista are stated to be the exact same as Kizaru's laser, and Kizaru attacks are confirmed to be Lightspeed by the databook.
Part V: Elementals Abilities
