Luffy finally clashes with Kaidou! How will this match end? Let's find out! Credit goes to AP's Redon for the info:

-Chapter title is "Yonkou Kaidou vs. Luffy". Splash features Luffy and his brothers Ace and Sabo as kids.

-Kaidou is knocked to the ground by Luffy's strike from the previous chapter. The rubber man then takes this opportunity to check on his friends' safety at the castle, but on the way there, he encounters the headliner Speed.... who's been beaten up. She explains that Kaidou attacked her during her trip to Tama's house, which resulted in her failing in her mission to protect the girl. Luffy is regretful that he didn't escort the girl home himself....

-Law suggests they escape while Kaidou is still drunk, but Luffy refuses. He says that if he can take Kaidou down now, they can end this conflict immediately! Plus, they're still unaware of the state of their friends. He then calls out to Kaidou, announcing himself as the future Pirate King! The dragon then unleashes his Boro (heat) Breath on Luffy, which the rubber man dodges, but suddenly the emperor reverts back to his human form and passes out....

-Despite this, Luffy doesn't hold back. He goes into Gear 4 mode, and unleashes a relentless assault on the emperor! Soon, he becomes exhausted from the constant attacking, and it's at this point that Kaidou, now sober, rises to his feet. He brings out his weapon (a giant spiked club), and unleashes his counterattack on the rubber man, called Raimei Hakke (something like "thunder divination/augury"), which instantly takes down Luffy!!! As our hero gets knocked out, Kaidou mockingly asks him what sort of king he intends to become......!!!!!

Literally a "One-Punch Man" from Kaidou, defeating Luffy in one hit.

We all knew Luffy would get his butt handed to him, but a OHKO in gear 4? Ouch. Kaido has shown the emperors really are on a whole other level.

More than weak is stupid just to jump a yonkou like that, but this is luffy we are talking about, like someone say before they can take a yonkou if all the mugiwaras fight together like a team, like when they fought against oars in thriller bark.

I knew there'd be a gap, but I didn't expect it to be THAT huge. His attacks apparently did zero damage to a sleeping Kaidou and he was taken out in one hit. How do you take down a monster like that? I suggested a team battle last week but I doubt even that would work now. Numbers don't matter if you can't even scratch your opponent.

I think like maybe this time Oda could make a "Concentrated" attack. When someone strike at the same spot consecutively, surely something will happen.

In playing Devilís Advocate, I am impressed how Kaidou makes himself look like an Oni with that spiked club of his.

No wonder Oda said he had no idea how he would go about Kaidou's defeat; he made the guy pretty much unbeatable for the Straw Hats.

On the bright side, at least Luffy was able to sober up Kaido, I think?

Hey, maybe he will be the first enemy, that won't be defeated by force, but instead by words.

Luffy really could have used that observation haki that he built up against Katakuri in this fight... although it would have course just delayed the inevitable beatdown

That divine thunder and that horn. Somehow, Kaidou reminds me of Bael or Baal with Yagrush club.

When does he say this?



How Kaido even caught by the Marin?

I wonder if anyone here truly believes that Luffy will gain enough power in two weeks to beat Kaidou at the festival, because I don't. Not unless Oda weakens Kaidou to near fodder levels at any rate. Plus I doubt anyone would accept that kind of victory.
