How old is Kaidou in One Piece?
Kaidou’s age has been officially revealed in One Piece. On Card #0944 from the Vivre Card – One Piece Visual Dictionary, it was revealed that Kaidou is 59 years old in the current timeline of the One Piece anime. In the rest of this section, we are going to tell you a bit about Kaidou and his history, so you know who we’re talking about.
Kaido, nicknamed “Kaido of the Beasts” or the World’s Strongest Creature, is the governor-general of the Beast Pirates and one of the Four Emperors of the Sea who control the New World. He is also the father of Yamato. As a promising child soldier in the service of the Vodka Kingdom decades ago, Kaido was sold against his will to the Navy by his king, but managed to escape and start a career in piracy, starting as a pirate apprentice in the legendary crew of the Rocks Pirates where he ate the rare mythological fruit Zoan, the Uo Uo no Mi (Model Seiryu).
After the fall of the Rocks, Kaido formed his own crew and turned it into a powerful military force. From their base in Onigashima, Kaido and his crew have occupied Wano Country with the alliance of the country’s shogun, Kurozumi Orochi. She is currently forming an alliance with her former crewmate and also Yonkō, Big Mom.
Kaido was first mentioned by Monkey D. Garp during the post-Enies Lobby arc and directly mentioned by Gecko Moria during the Thriller Bark arc, with his status as Yonkō revealed after the defeat in Moria, at the hands of the Straw Hat Pirates.
Thus, Kaido is the third Yonkō mentioned and the last to appear. Before making his debut in person, his voice was heard in a flashback of Kozuki Momonosuke during the landing at Dressrosa. Due to his actions, he is the main antagonist of the Wano Country arc, as well as one of the main antagonists of the Yonkō Saga.
Gekko Moriah suffered a crushing defeat against Kaido in the Shin Sekai some time ago, during which the Yonkō kills all members of the Moriah Pirates. When Shirohige sets out to free Ace and save him from execution, Kaido sets out to stop the “strongest man alive,” as Shirohige is known. But he is prevented from doing so by Shanks.
Vice Admiral Momonga is briefed on the incident on his return from Impel Down in the presence of Boa Hancock. Kaido’s army of Zoan Devil Fruit users who ate from Doflamingo’s Smiles. Two years after the Battle of Marineford, Kaido obtains Smile, human-made artificial devil fruit, from Doflamingo. He uses these Devil Fruits so he can get new members for his gang, since his crew consists of Zoan-type users.
How old is Big Mom in One Piece?
Like Kaidou’s, Big Mom’s age has also been revealed in One Piece. On page 150 of Volume 85 of the One Piece manga, it was revealed that Big Mom is 68 years old in the current timeline of the One Piece anime. In the rest of this section, we are going to tell you a bit about Big Mom and her history, so you know who we’re talking about.
Charlotte Linlin, better known as “Big Mom”, is the captain of the Big Mom Pirates, a former member of the Rock Pirates and one of the Four Emperors of the Sea who rule the New World. She is the matriarch of the Charlotte Family, which forms the infrastructure of her crew, made up of herself and dozens of her children and husbands.
Also, from Cake Island, she rules the territory called Totto Land as queen, forming a utopian nation where all the races of the world coexist in equality, without any discrimination.
He was the last Yonkō to be named. His nickname was first mentioned just after the Battle of Marineford by the Eustass Kid and his real name was revealed in Pappag on Triton Island. Due to his actions he is the main antagonist of the Totto Land Arc, a secondary antagonist of the Wano Country Arc and therefore one of the central antagonists of the Yonkō saga.
Unlike the Yonkō Shanks and Kaido, Big Mom does not interfere with Shirohige’s attack on Marineford. Two years after the Battle of Marineford, Luffy and his friends see Big Moms Jolly Roger on Fishman Island, which is now under their protection after Shirohige’s death.
Charlotte is preparing her tea party on Whole Cake Island when her subordinates, Pekoms and Tamago-danshaku, head to Fishman Island to collect the agreed amount of candy – ten tons in total. However, Fishman Island cannot muster the crowds as the Daruma candy factory was damaged and Luffy ate the supplies at the celebration of defeating the Shin Gyojin pirate gang.
She receives a report from Bobbin, who comes from another island under her protection: he had the island burned down because the residents couldn’t fulfill the promised shipment of candy. Big Mom then calls Tamago-danshaku and Pekoms through Den Den Mushi, but Luffy picks up the phone and talks to her.
He apologizes for eating the candy alone and in exchange offers her the treasures Neptune gave him as a reward for defeating the Shin-Gyojin gang. Tamago-danshaku wants to appease Charlotte, especially since the Eustass Kid recently sank two of her ships. Big Mom doesn’t think so, however, and announces that she will destroy Fishman Island, after which Luffy declares war on her and declares the island his territory.
