Kaido, also known as 'Kaido of the Beasts' and the 'Strongest Creature', is the Governor General of the Beast Pirates. He was also one of the Four Emperors of the Sea and ruled over the New World. He also is Yamato's father and is the main antagonist of the Wano City Arc as well.
His bounty was considered the highest in the series after Gol D. Roger. Even when he started out as a pirate he was quite formidable and he grew stronger each day and became one of the strongest creatures on the Grand Line.
The second time when Luffy and Kaido clashed, Luffy remembered all the cruelties and problems that were faced by the people of Wano and got very angry. He vented out by powering his attack with his Busoshoku Haki, and then he attacked Kaido and caused damage. He then told Kaido that he'll surpass him and become the next King of the Pirates. Kaido retaliated by attacking Luffy but Luffy dodged the attack and hit back at Kaido which made his nose bleed.
Kaido was surprised at how Luffy could land an attack on him and was impressed with how Luffy didn't give up easily. When Big Mom was attacking Luffy, Kaodo launched another attack at him but Law managed to teleport Luffy just in time. Law and the other Pirates of the Worst Generation tried to attack Kaido but he transformed into his Dragon form and flew high up in the sky to join Big Mom.
Luffy then walked up to Kaido and hit him with his Gomu Gomu no Kong rifle and managed to injure Kaido. Kaido retaliated but was again surprised that Luffy was not injured one bit. Luffy revealed that it was his guts that saved him and then hit Kaido with his Gomu Gomu no Gatling. After being a bit beaten by Kaido, Law and Killer tried to attack Kaido but he defended himself against them by creating tornados. When he and Luffy clashed again, their battle got heated and serious. Luffy eventually found out how Kaido infused his Haoshoku Haki in his attacks and he even pointed out that only a few people could do it including himself. He then tried to hit Luffy with his kanabo but Luffy blocked it. Luffy then repeatedly started hitting Kaido without touching him and finally managed to knock him down.
Kaido noticed that Luffy's smile kept increasing as the fight became riskier and he started to think of Luffy as Joy Boy. Despite Luffy's new ability, Kaido was able to beat him and throw him off the roof. As he was fighting his daughter Yamato, Luffy activated his Snakeman to attack Kaido. Kaido then decided that he should transform into his full form to fight Luffy and eventually Yamato left so that Luffy and Kaido could fight alone. Throughout the fight, Kaido was losing a lot of strength and he began to drink so that he could enter his aggressive fighting form. Despite this, Luffy managed to block and dodge Kaido's attacks. Suddenly in the middle of their fight a CP0 agent intervened in the fight and seemingly killed Luffy. Kaido declared Luffy dead.
Luffy wasn't really dead, his heartbeat was spreading around the whole castle and his crew rejoiced at the fact that he was still alive. On the other hand, in the Holy Land of Mary Geoise, the Five Elders wonder if the agent they sacrificed was the right option and this makes Kaido very angry. The Elders then reveal that the World Government has been looking for the Gomu Gomu devil fruit for almost 800 years, but it somehow manages to avoid them.
This is when the real truth is revealed, that the Gomu Gomu fruit is in reality a Mythical Zoan Devil Fruit called the Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika. This devil fruit gives the user the properties of rubber in combat, but in reality, it is said that it helps strengthen their rubbery body exponentially and grants them more freedom to a God-like level, which makes this devil fruit the most powerful one out there. In another part, Yamato and Zunesha tell Momonosuke that Luffy is Joy Boy.
As the fight continues on the rooftop, Luffy says that he can go on longer and then declares his new form 'Gear 5'. With this new form, Luffy releases a lot of Haoshoku Haki and easily knocks out many Beast Pirates before extending his enlarged hand and grabbing Kaido (who is in his dragon form) and dragging him back to the rooftop.
He then tightly wrapped his arm around him and swung him, slamming him into the surface back and forth. Kaido admits that he's happy that Luffy is still alive before firing his Bolo Breath at him. Luffy then transforms into rubber and defects the fire back at him. Kaido recovers from his attacks and Luffy gets ready to finish off his fight with Kaido once and for all.
