One Piece “What If: Kaido Arrived at Marineford” – A fan manga by Ricky Acong Subroto (Chapters 1-2)

Hey everyone! Artur here. You may recall the name of Ricky Acong Subroto as one of the artists for one of the covers of Return to the Reverie. Well, this time he’s made an entire fan chapter of his own, a what if scenario of if Shanks had not been able to stop Kaido from going to Marineford! I had no involvement in this chapter aside from helping with translation and proofreading. The concept, story, and art were all done by Ricky Acong Subroto and all credit belongs to him. However, Ricky personally asked if his chapter could be featured on the Library of Ohara so that it could reach a larger audience, hence why you can find it available here. Enjoy!

Hi, this is Murders speaking to you (editor of the chapter). I’m happy to inform you that our project “Ricky Acong x Murders Comic” will be here in The Library of Ohara, thanks to Artur. We want to impress you with our work, without intimidating Oda-sensei’s One Piece original work. We support One Piece, and always will be. Therefore, this is the work of a One Piece fan. A “One Piece What If – Kaido Arrived at Marineford” story. Enjoy.

  3. The art is good. The story, I have to say, it’s very unlikely: Kaido seems Saitama. Akainu one-shotted when Teach, one who fled form Akainu, holds his ground, is just fantasy. And in all this Kaido had even already clashed with shanks.
    Also the fact that they repeat more than once that it is Teach who killed Newgate, when in reality we know very well that 90% of the work was done by the Navy, is quite alienating.
    If I can give you some advice, keep it up, but eliminate some of the exaggeration. I understand the love for a character, but that’s a little too much.

    • I could actually totally believe that might happen for this reason.

      Kaido is powerful sure… But he’s actually overrated currently. Why so? Well it’s as simple as Enel!

      Enel for the longest time was massively overrated, when people thought Haki would be way rarer then it actually turned out to be (Which was always kind of a foolish assumption to think Haki would be rare.), and when people thought a lot of characters couldn’t deal with his speed.

      Fact is Enel compared to the heavy hitters is a glass cannon, and people realize this now. He doesn’t suck, the fact he’d attain a bounty similar to Ace’s shows he’s far from weak. He’s got a great fruit, excellent mastery of it, and even has haki which synches with his fruit. And his fruit gives him a ton of firepower. Enel’d be a serious opponent for even many strong characters. Buuuut…

      He’s not the unstoppable god he fancies himself to be. Some people would wreck Enel.

      And Kaido is like Enel on steroids, and the reason he is is this; Kaido is NOT the final villain!

      Kaido is a guy with a very powerful ability, and maxed out durability and strength stats. But Kaido only has basic haki use. People wonder why he didn’t use Ryuou, and it’s quite likely that Kaido doesn’t HAVE that ability.

      And post Kaido there will be opponents that DO have that ability. Which means that sure… Akainu and Shanks are not actually as durable or physically strong as Kaido. But, they have more advanced and well developped use of Haki, so they are actually stronger.

      Not massively, gigantically stronger. Kaido COULD win a fight with either of them. But they are more likely to win that fight if it did happen. And both of them CAN hurt Kaido just fine.

      Let’s face it. Oden is pretty expllicitly shown to not be quite as strong as Whitebeard & Roger (strong enough that he’d probably put up a fight in a prolonged match, btu they were stronger.), but Oden was also heavily implied to have been able ot beat Kaido had he not been distracted by the shapeshifting hag.

      Therefor Kaido (And his rough equal Big Mom) are in fact the weakest of the emperors, they just both have the best physical stats.

      As for Kaido’s rep… Well rep in the OP world isn’t the golden unvarnished truth. Katakuri’s back was said never to touch the ground, yet this was bullshit. Why was this rep important? Because Kata can protect his family with it. If people think he cannot be beaten, they will not attack him. Thus this protects both him, and more importantly, his siblings (whom he loves), from attack.

      Kaido’s rep, that he’d win any one on one fight, as such is just that… it’s just a folk tale. Oden could have beaten him one on one. Roger or Whitebeard WOULD have beaten him more likely then not in a one on one had they wanted. And so could Shanks or Akainu (And probably Im for that matter.) Kaido could put up a real fight, but he’s weaker then them. Because… he’s not the final villain. What comes after will be tougher then he is.

      Of course Kaido won’t fall in a one on one. He’s going to fall to a gauntlet of enemies working together against him.
