Shanks, the man who one-handedly stopped The Marineford War, But how did he prevent Kaido from attending the War?
Kaido was stopped by Red Hair Shanks, a day before the Marineford War. Now, it is revealed that the two had a short encounter, and nothing significant happened. But, looking at Kaido’s character, do you actually think he’d let a rival leave without a fight?
There are some possible theories considering that around, so let’s examine some of them.
1. Shanks gave Kaido a powerful Devil Fruit
This could work to stop Kaido from going to Marineford, If and only if the fruit that Shanks gave to Kaido was an extremely Rare fruit.
Seriously, that Devil fruit has to be without a doubt a Zoan and extremely rare.
2. Shanks Gave Kaido a National Treasure
The thought of this came up after Big Mom dismissed Luffy’s Behavior on Fishman Island when she received the “Fishmens’ National Treasure.” I think Big Mom is the most mental of all the Yonkos, so if she forgave Luffy, I guess Kaido would call it ends if he received a national treasure.
3. Shanks gave Road Ponegylph to Kaido
Shanks managed to stop Kaido by making him an offer he couldn’t refuse. This was likely a Road Poneglyph. That’s right. Shanks gave his own Road Poneglyph to Kaido, which is why one of them is missing. Because it was a fair deal, Kaido backed down, and Shanks left to stop the war of Marineford.
And it would also help to give more understanding of why now did Kaido invade Wano Kuni in search of Oden – The only other known person who was alive recently who could read the Poneglyphs.
4. Shanks fought against Kaido
There are always Matches being drawn between Shanks and Luffy So it wouldn’t be fair for us to conclude that Shanks has powerful Characters within his fleet that could hold of Kaido and his crew to give Shanks and his team enough time to stop the Marineford War.
Kaido is a total monster, and there’s no way Shanks managed to beat him then and there. Most significant of all, it would have taken days for him to do that, even if he could.
Shanks was at Marineford the next day after the encounter.
Why Blackbeard Refused To Fight Shanks In Marineford
Why did Blackbeard refuse to fight with Shanks during the Marineford arc?
Most of us believed that Blackbeard who was so anxious to destroy the Marineford. He fought Whitebeard, Garp, and Sengoku without a single doubt but when Shanks single-handedly challenged everyone including Blackbeard, He denied and considered not competing as a better option that means Shanks is even more significant deal than Whitebeard.
But actually, that’s not the real reason Blackbeard denied fighting with Shanks.
There is a concept of the appropriate opponent in the one piece world.
Remember how dominant God Enel was on the sky island. According to his abilities, he was stronger than Moriah and even Lucci
But Luffy defeated him when he was weak compared to when he fought Lucci.
Luffy was the most appropriate opponent of Enel, or perhaps it was the only Luffy at that time could have defeated Enel.
Blackbeard stated that when it comes to fighting, he wasn’t perfect and he has to endure a lot of pain. His physicality and body are unique, so he planned himself to make the strongest Devil fruit user by attaining the strong logia Devil Fruit Yami Yami no Mi.
