By being completely irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
The most important thing about Kaido is the Road Poneglyph.
His backstory didn't add shit.
In his defense, that's because Oda decided to leave the good stuff for Oden and completely forgot to develop Kaido beyond "hurr durr me stronk".
Anyone thinking Oda will shit on Admirals is a glorified moron. They nitpick some random line about akainu "being scared" of the samurais as if we, as readers, also didn't fall for Oda's bait that the samurais and the beast pirates were hot shit.
Buddy, if the readers fall for the fake...
Salty for what?
I love Big Mom's concept. What I hate is how Oda treated her character throughout Wano.
Shanks inspired Luffy to become a Pirate. Has some sort of relationship with the Gorosei, and trying to make people see the danger of BB.
Teach has been built up ever since Drum Island. Wanna...
We should collectively stop calling these "one night" battles as "wars".
Even Marineford wasn't a fucking "war".
Freaking random offscreen battles between top tiers last longer than "wars" in One Piece.
In the end, both BM and Kaido actually only got 1 arc each.
We had 0 development for them outside WCI and Wano.
Dropping Kaido's name in PH and waiting until 140+ chapters into Wano itself to give him a half baked flashback is most definitely not "build-up".
Don't get me wrong. I don't like it...
The only real important thing about Kaido and BM in the grand scheme of the narrative, is the fact that each of them holds a Road Poneglyph.
Shanks exists from the beginning and Im had BB's bounty alongside Luffy's.
These two are way, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more important than kaido and BM.
I knew Kaido and BM were the filler Yonkos, but even I did not expect Oda to just delete them like that.
:ihaha: Kinda curious to see the BMP and what BM's vivre card is looking like right now.
It's over. We can be at peace now.
Still need to deal with the WG fleet that is lurking about waiting to take down the remaining victors with 1 hp left.
Not saying they are gonna be a real threat, since Momo is just gonna tell Zunisha to wreck them, but it's still required to be dealt with.
