Except for the usual obvious suspects, Luffy Zorro and Roger Riley (I also love Kid-Killer a lot), is there a better duo than these two?
Kaido and King have an incredible bond, they truly are a great duo of Captain and Right Hand Man. They share a tremendous amount of similarities that make them unique to Beasts Pirates.
Oda making Kaido’s strongest move and King’s strongest move is a stark reference to the other. The visual similarity speaks for itself. They both have the same giant magma avatar in the form of a dragon, only Kaido has more range and power than King.
Kaido, the captain of the pirates of the beasts, lost to Luffy, the captain of the Straw Hats and the future pirate king. The king, Kaido’s right hand, was defeated by Zoro, Luffy’s right hand and the world’s most powerful swordsman in the future.
With Zoro being the right hand very close to his captain, Zoro also fought against Kaido, gaining crazy feats and using his power to protect Luffy, saving his captain’s life many times. Zoro’s attacks even threaten Kaido’s life, and she manages to injure the Yonkou to the point of inflicting a scar on him.
Later, to defeat Kaido, Luffy will have to prove himself as a “king”, unlocking the advanced conqueror Haki. Later, to defeat the king, Zoro will have to prove himself as a “king”, and conquer the advanced conqueror Haki.
Advanced Conqueror Haki, the power of higher levels, the strength that “only a handful of the strongest can” were required for both Kaido and King.
When Luffy defeated Kaido, he thought of the King. When King was defeated by Zoro, he thought of Kaido.
Kaido is known for his toughness as a dragon, the king is very cruel, as a dinosaur with the power of the lunar, he is even stronger than Kaido. His defense is exceptional, even stronger than that of Kaido’s scales.
Guide: Tatsumaki Zoro. Oda creates a straightforward comparison for readers to understand, makes Zoro use the same move, with very different results, and makes it clear that King is something superior, in this respect, to both dragons and dinosaurs.
Oh, let’s remember that King was officially announced and confirmed as the Captain of All Stars, and the second most powerful underrated player after Kaido.
Alber was literally chosen by Kaido to be his right-hand man simply because Kaido admired his immense strength, and bestowed the name King (King > Queen > Jack) because of that super strength.
I really liked the dynamics of Kaido and Kings from the flashbacks we got.
