Since the time it appeared, theories about Kaido’s death have been popping up continuously. Most rely on an important detail in the conversation between Kaido and Kinemon when the two encounter each other in an abandoned warehouse. However, there is a contradictory detail that no theory can explain, but only conjecture, which is who will kill Kaido? Or he will commit suicide.
Many theories suggest that Zoro will be the one to kill Kaido after his statement before the battle, however this is unlikely as Luffy wanted to fight Kaido 1 vs 1 and Zoro will definitely respect that. . Finally, the answer to this question probably appears in chapter 1036, in King’s flashback to Kaido.
Before we get to the main point, let’s go back to Kaido. What is Kaido’s current dream? It is very clear that he is trying to start an unprecedented war, to find One Piece, to become the Pirate King and if he dies, to die gloriously, just like the way Whitebeard went. during the battle at Marine Ford. This has never been hidden by Kaido and he often repeats it.
However, besides that dream, Kaido also often finds ways to kill himself and often appears sad, even drinking alcohol to relieve his sadness. This begs the question, what was Kaido’s previous dream? The answer may have appeared in chapter 1036, in King’s flashback, he once wanted to become a Joy Boy to change the world but perhaps failed, in the end, he decided to go to Wano to station and wait for the real Joy Boy to appear. When he saw Luffy and dropped Luffy into the sea, Kaido was disappointed and assumed that Luffy was “also” not a Joy Boy, like him.
So, how will Kaido die?
Naturally, Luffy never kills his opponent. For Luffy, defeating his enemies and letting them live to see their dreams come true is scarier than death. In SBS episode 30 Oda explained that Luffy and Luffy’s opponents consider victory more important than life or death. Therefore, with Kaido’s dream of “glorious death”, Luffy will not be able to kill Kaido, but only defeat him.
Thus, Kaido definitely will not die at Luffy’s hands, but only has 2 possibilities: someone kill him after he is defeated by Luffy, or he will kill himself. The first case is unlikely because everyone in the allied group will respect Luffy’s decision. For the second case, we can immediately think of the conversation between Kaido and Kinemon, he was puzzled when the Kinemon group was still trying to get up after being defeated by him, because according to him a martial artist You really need to know how to accept defeat and kill yourself.
Thus, Kaido’s death in the future can be summed up as follows: many years ago at some point in the past, occurring after the events in God’s valley, Kaido rescued King and heard. the story of “Joy Boy” will appear to change this world. He used to call himself Joy Boy but it turned out he wasn’t. That made him become disappointed in himself and began to borrow alcohol to relieve depression and commit suicide for entertainment.
Then, thanks to the process of learning history, Kaido knew that Joy Boy might appear in Wano in the future, so he chose this place as a base until now. In the near future, Kaido will most likely be defeated by Luffy, after which he will end himself in exactly what he worships: dying gloriously and killing himself when defeated.
