Should have been Zoro tbh, he permanently defiled his body for the rest of his life. One of 2 people to ever accomplish that. Oda's Luffy wank knows no bounds.
but I will say kaido didnt respect the scar as much as I thought he would.
oden essentially did the same thing and he talks of oden as someone who could kill him .
I dont expect the same thing
but at least a bit more than was shown.
end of response to zen
he respects luffy more for obvious reasons
he's the strongest person in the alliance
he essentially didnt acknowledge the others till they landed a hit . ch 1000 they were all ignored.
5 people in front of kaido who does he acknowledge ?
to him defeating luffy is the same as defeating their chance of winning
not the same with zoro
if luffy was out of this equation tho, that would prob be zoro but he isnt so the answer to this question is obvious. do note the question is who does kaido respect more not who the fandom should respect more.
