Kaido, also known as Kaido of the Beasts, is the main antagonist of the Wano Country Arc, and one of the main antagonists of the Yonkou Saga. He is the general of the Beast Pirates, the third of the Four Emperors to be mentioned, and the last one to make an appearance. Kaido is also considered to be The Strongest Creature in the World and has an army of 500 artificial devil fruit users in his crew of the Beasts Pirates and is greatly feared as he is so extremely hard to kill (he constantly attempts to commit suicide, but with no success each time). It was also revealed that he and Big Mom knew one another in the past, hinted that they were a part of the same crew sometime before Gol D. Roger was Pirate King and that he owes her a debt from back then. He appears to have eaten a powerful Zoan Devil Fruit which allows him to assume the form of a large serpentine dragon.
The first thing we learned about Kaido is that he’s the one who sent Gecko Moria over the deep end. As a testament to his strength, he tried to make a grab for power by attacking Whitebeard before he arrived at Marineford, but Shanks prevented him from doing so.
Following the Battle of Marineford, Kaido's has come into conflict with some younger pirates. X Drake attacked one of his favorite islands just after the war, while Law formed an alliance with Luffy in order to take him down.
Kaido has also been assembling an army of Zoan Users from the artificial SMILE fruits developed by Caesar Clown. Doflamingo, under the alias of Joker, was the one supplying the SMILE fruits to Kaido.
As of now, he's allied with Kurozumi Orochi, the shogun of the Wano Country, and resides in Onigashima, an island in the very same country. He is revered by the citizens of Wano to be a wise king who protects the country.
Like many people in One Piece, Kaido has a unique laughing style: “Worororo”. When he is drunk, it is “Fuhihihi”.
His current bounty is 4,611,100,000.
