Hi and welcome back to another one piece theory, today we will be discussing Who is Kaido and how he is not a human..
First off, I would like to tell the different inter species that we have seen so far regarding species that can live in the sea or have relations to the fishman. We, first have the fishman alongside merfolk. After that we have 3 subcategories that are Wotans (Half fishman and half giant), half human and half fishman and the last inter species is half merfolk and half fishman.
The difference in the species are as follows: when fishmen and merfolk have children, they will either be fishmen or merfolk. Wotans are a hybrid species that have fishmen biological abilities with a huge body buy as noted by Robin they are normally smaller than an actual giant just like Big Pan from the Foxy Pirates and Sebastian the member of the World Pirates.
Now comes the interesting part, the half human, half giant hybrids. We already seen two characters in One Piece being of this kind one from the Donquixote Pirates, Dellinger the half human and half fighting fish fishman and the other one from way back to Loguetown when Sanji bought a rare species of Blue Finned Elephant Tuna from Sapi.
To those people who haven’t noticed yet, Jack the Drought is also a fishman, after he tried to kill Zunisha and bring down the island of Zou, Zunisha asked for permission to act. Zunisha started swinging its trunk and destroyed Jack’s ship and sinking him to the bottom of the sea.
As Zunisha dealt him the final blow his metallic jaw mask broke and you can clearly see his teeth aren’t human like but more like Arlong’s making him a fishman too. To further prove this point, he ended up on the bottom of the sea without being able to swim because of his devil fruit power but as he is a fishman he can at least breath under water and must wait for assistance.
Now it time for spoilers and a question in the end. The World Government changed the name of Gol D. Roger to Gold Roger, the same happen to Kai D Ō. The WG changed his name to Kaido. Kai in Japanese has many meanings but one of them is ocean, also in Japanese Ō can be written that way or Romanised as ou as it is a prolonged o and it means king.
With the D in the middle he is a Sea king with the will of D, making him the strongest creature and the King of the Beasts. His epithet is granted to him as he is the hybrid of the 2 most powerful species and filled with brute force the giants on land and fishman under water. Which brings me to the question: I would love it more if he was a hybrid between a sea king and a fishman to make him have a better biological background. Do you think that it would be possible to have a half sea king and half fishmen? Hope you enjoyed it, leave your comments below and see you on the next one.
