To make Zoro not look like complete ass in comparison to awakened Law/Kid, an current base Luffy. Since the feat happened, basically everybody been shown superior:
-Luffy attacks use ACoC, comparable to a Yonko. An actually excite Kaido. Ashrua something Kaido “literally not thought about since it happened”.
Laws attacks have the 2nd most durable character in the manga “literally scared shitless”. An are just overall, completely above pre CoC Zoro pay grade in Attack potency.
Kid 50/50, technically he got a Yonko to dodge, an unlike Zoro it’s not just a random throw away. Neither Kaido/Meme openly acknowledged Zoro offense as a real threat to them. Kaido dodges the one time meme suggested it. From then on, there’s no indication given Zoro attack power worth Kaido/Meme time. Hell the panel below all the proof u need lol
They weren’t wrong tho... Zoro fans hyped the dude as capable of killing Kaido. He doesn’t get anywhere that. His fandom the ones wrong. An instead of acknowledging that, y’all just move on to the next headcanon. Post CoC Zoro can kill Kaido
Oda showed that zoro is inferior to Oden by the inferior scar he gave to kaido.
Once again he should how zoro is inferior to oden when he couldn't control enma.(this were even admitted by zoro himself).
But when zoro got ACOC and controlled enma, he finally surpassed oden.
This will be shown when he beheads kaido.
I think zoro will take another mink medicine from chopper, this time it only lasts a minute or so and just enough for zkk to happen.
It was hinting at Zoro's conqueror's haki and the ability to coat Conqueror's into attacks. Kaido comes to that conclusion upon inspecting the wound Zoro left, and Luffy makes the exact same point/observation after he was struck by Kaido.
