#6 – Both Kaido and Charlotte Linlin shared some similarities with one another:

-Both dreamed of creating something through the power of science, through dealing with the scientist Caesar Clown (Kaido dreamed of creating a crew composed entirely of Zoan-type Devil Fruit users, via Caesar’s Artificial Devil Fruits; Linlin dreamed of dining with her diverse family at eye-level, via Caesar’s falsely promised Gigantification-drugs).

#8 – Three of the Yonko are known to have dealt with Gol D. Roger in their past:

Shanks was an apprentice on Roger’s ship and inherited his straw hat.

Edward Newgate and Roger were fierce rivals in the past but held respect for one another with Roger telling him about the meaning of Will of the D.
