What Happened to Kaido in the God Valley Incident!


Chapter 1049 confirmed some new information and here’s what I’ve got laid out for what happened to Kaido during the God Valley Incident. Kaido’s been heavily foreshadowed to have something major happened to him which caused Big Mom to call Kaido that “thing” which implies Big Mom is afraid of Kaido.


With the latest chapter, it’s basically confirmed that Big Mom never saw Kaido again after the God Valley Incident until he had basically become a Yonko.


The God Valley incident gave Kaido him the epithet of the “Embodiment of Brutality” which later on in the chapter explains Kaido’s brutality as full on anarchy and survival of the fittest.


The God Valley incident was also the incident where Big Mom gave Kaido his Mythical Devil Fruit, the Azure Dragon, which Big Mom stated that Kaido owed her a life long debt because of it. It possibly saved Kaido’s life somehow in the God Valley incident?


Here’s the thing, Kaido and Big Mom seemingly hate each other despite Big Mom saying that she still thinks of him as a little brother. So there’s alot of mixed messages we are getting and it is 100% tied to the God Valley Incident. But there are some questions.

What caused Kaido to avoid or dislike Big Mom now?

Why did Big Mom call Kaido, that thing, in response to Luffy saying he will defeat Kaido?

Why did Big Mom say Kaido owed her a life long debt for the Azure Dragon fruit? Big Mom saw Kaido transform and did not blink an eye or act afraid when Kaido showed his full Zoan form or hybrid form.

  1. I think Kaido being the “Embodiment of Brutality” is tied to these and what he did at God Valley.
  2. All these are tied to the “true” power of the Azure Dragon fruit.
  3. This true power caused a rift between Kaido and Big Mom where Big Mom feared that power and possibly betraying Kaido by running away which ties to Kaido’s views on betrayal.

Another plot thread mentioned that might be proof of this is Vegapunk’s artificial devil fruit which Momonosuke now has.

We know that Vegapunk is a super genius and despite his artificial fruit being deemed a failure, the fruit is almost an exact 1:1 version of Kaido’s devil fruit. But that leads to another problem. Why was it deemed a failure? Why was the Bowler CP0 agent glad that it was a failure?

For one, we already know that the World Government is trying to recreate artificial dragons back in Punk Hazard and that they existed in one of Ryuma’s legend. Ryuma’s legend solidified Wano from getting attacked by the World Government completely likely due to Ryuma’s legend.

So, how does this tie back to Kaido? Momonosuke’s Devil fruit is 100% a failure. Why? It is because Vegapunk’s artificial devil fruit could not achieve an ability that Kaido’s DF truly has. Vegapunk is trying to replicate the true power of Kaido’s Devil Fruit which is activated during Kaido’s Awakening(?).

Momonosuke’s fruit as far as we know works almost exactly the same as Kaido’s, but Momonosuke is simply not trained or experienced enough to know how to use all its normal abilities like weather manipulation. As we see later on when Momonosuke properly ages up, his Dragon looks closer to Kaido’s and can even create the flame clouds. It is likely that Momonosuke could do the same things as Kaido when he properly trains up.

Thus, the logical conclusion is that the only relevant ability in Kaido’s arsenal that Vegapunk and the World Government could possibly want to replicate is its Awakened state. Otherwise, we don’t know why Vegapunk or the World Government considered it a failure as Kaido’s weather manipulation isn’t seen as all that crazy when nearly every major character can do it in some form or another. The only other possible ability would be Awakening.

And the only time Kaido could have possibly awakened the Devil Fruit for the World Government to learn about it so much would be during the God Valley Incident which involved many Celestial Dragons. It all ties to the God Valley Incident.

It all makes sense why Big Mom calls Kaido that thing, why Vegapunk’s artificial dragon fruit was a failure, and how Kaido got his epithet as the Embodiment of Brutality/possibly his future epithet as the Strongest Creature. They’re all tied to Kaido’s Awakening.
