The vast following of One Piece is abuzz with theories regarding Kaido’s death. Some believe Kaido died, while others believe he may have found a way to survive. Kaido’s current situation is unclear.

Is Kaido Dead?

Both Kaido and Big Mom were spotted landing in a pool of magma beneath the Wano Country towards the end of the battle. When One Piece Chapter 1050 revealed Luffy’s victory, viewers witnessed the erupting volcano where Big Mom and Kaido fell. The two most likely flew out of the Wano region because the eruption was so large that it darkened the air over the region. Pudding announces Big Mom’s death after being kidnapped by Blackbeard in chapter 1064.

As a result, while Kaido and Big Mom share the same fate, one of their deaths is confirmed, leading us to believe that Kaido did not survive either. This is one of the biggest speculations around the death of the characters because according to the creator of One Piece, Eiichiro Oda, he hates drawing death scenes and killing characters.

Eiichiro Oda Hates Hates Drawing Death Scenes and Killings

In an interview translation published by @Sandman_AP, Oda san remarked that his fondness for a post-battle meal keeps him from including too many depressing situations. However, if someone died, throwing a dinner soon afterward would be inappropriate. He said:

“The reason I don’t want to draw scenes where people die is because I want to draw a party after the battle. If someone dies, you can’t have an enjoyable party. A party is my ideal form of friendship. I want to end with One Piece with a *big party*.”

Oda intends for One Piece to end on a high note. He avoids the main character’s deaths in order to emphasize post-battle celebrations, emphasizing brotherhood and friendship. As a result, the series will undoubtedly conclude with the Straw Hats and their pals enjoying a large dinner after finishing their journey.
