CBR VIDEO OF THE DAY
10 Can Beat Sabo
The number 2 of the Revolutionary Army and the chief of staff is Monkey D. Luffy's brother, Sabo. He is a powerful and skilled fighter who proved himself worthy of his position within the Revolutionary Army. In the Dressrosa arc, Sabo’s power jumped significantly after eating the Flame-Flame Devil Fruit.
In a one-on-one fight against the beast Kaido, Sabo does not stand a chance. Not only that Kaido overpowers Sabo, but he is also as tough as a tank. This makes it hard for Sabo to penetrate Kaido’s armed body.
9 Cannot Beat Whitebeard
Edward Newgate was the most powerful human being before he died in the Paramount War. In fact, Whitebeard was the only one as strong as the Pirate King himself. His supremacy is well displayed in the Paramount War, where he fought against thousands of marines, although sick and barely standing.

His death marked a turning point for the narrative, which was the debut of many other series events. However, Kaido, the beast, couldn’t stand his death since he was the only one alive who could beat him fair and square.
8 Can Beat Marco the Phoenix
Following his pops' steps, Marco the Phoenix was the first commander of Whitebeard’s fleet and arguably the strongest subordinate of Edward Newgate. Marco spent most of his life in the sea, traveling with Whitebeard and visiting all the four seas. This gave Marco a tremendous experience and skill to stand up against the emperors of the sea.
However, Marco is one step behind the level of any Yonko. Therefore, he is weaker than Kaido, but he can still play a major role in Wano against the most powerful creature.
7 Cannot Beat Shanks
Red Head Shanks is the fourth emperor of the sea and the most mysterious one of the bunch. In terms of power, Shanks’ crew is by far the strongest among all emperors, although it is the smallest. Back to Shanks, though, his strength is beyond the rest of the emperors of the sea.

The proof here is that all he did to stop the Paramount War was merely showing up. Moreover, it has been said that Shanks stopped Kaido from going to the Marineford before showing up at the Paramount War. Therefore, it is safe to say to consider Red Head Shanks the strongest Yonko in One Piece.
6 Can Beat Blackbeard
After the death of Edward Newgate, Marshall D. Teach was considered the new Yonko who took Whitebeard’s place. For sure, having two Devil Fruits is absolutely enormous. However, the series has presented Blackbeard as a scumbag who reaches his goals only by using tricks.
When they confronted each other in the Impel Down, Luffy easily damaged the Blackbeard and without Haki. Therefore, even Blackbeard's thought of fighting Kaido is ridiculous because of the power gap between them. Kaido the beast can easily kill Marshall D. Teach without breaking a sweat.
5 Cannot Beat Monkey D. Garp
The hero of the marine and the strongest law enforcement guy that has been presented in this franchise is Monkey D. Garp. Throughout the story, fans discovered how overwhelming this character is. Oda himself announced that Garp is the only marineon par with the pirate king Gol D. Roger.
Garp is known for his slacking off, but he is best known for his iron fist that can break mountains, which made him win many fights against Roger. Therefore, it is hard to believe that Garp would lose a fight against Kaido.
4 Can Beat Akainu
Akainu, or Sakazuki, is the current Fleet Admiral who got promoted after the retirement of Sengoku. Akainu played a huge role in the Paramount War as an Admiral, where he gave Whitebeard two fatal hits that contributed to his death. Akainu, however, relies too much on his powerful Logia Devil Fruit that enables him to become a Magma Man.
Although his accomplishments and strict sense of justice, Sakazuki is for sure not invincible. All fans had witnessed how he froze with fear when the Whitebeard stood behind him and how badly he got hurt. For this reason, Kaido will surely wipe Akainu off the face of the earth in a one-on-one fight.
3 Cannot Beat Kozuki Oden
The legendary samurai who sailed aboard the two legendary ships, Moby Dick and Oro Jackson, is the great Kozuki Oden. The manga displayed his amazing backstory, which placed him directly into the fans’ hall of fame. By far, Oden is the type of character who makes you fall in love with at first glance.

However, this samurai is not a weakling; Kaido himself announced that Kozuki Oden is the strongest samurai/swordsman that the world has ever seen. In fact, the biggest scar on Kaido's body was inflicted on him by Oden. If it were not for preventing casualties, Oden would have never surrendered to Kaido.
2 Can Beat Katakuri
Charlotte Katakuri is another great character made from the same metal as that of legends. His charisma, power, silence, and eyes speak for him. By far, the narrative has shown that Katakuri has the most advanced Observational Haki in the whole series, an outstanding Haki that makes him see the near future.
RELATED:One Piece: 10 Strongest Moves of Charlotte Katakuri
Charlotte Katakuri is one of the most powerful characters in One Piece, thanks to his high control over his Devil Fruit and his strong Armament Haki. However, all of this power and skill mean nothing against Kaido’s armed body. After all, Kaido is the ultimate monster and the strongest creature on earth.
1 Cannot Beat Gol D. Roger
The Pirate King and the most powerful person who ruled all four seas is Gol D. Roger. This man earned it all; fame, power, wealth, and knowledge. Back in his days, Roger beat the mightiest pirates and marines of the world and learned all the secrets of the world. The only three people on par with him are Whitebeard, Garp, and Rocks D. Xebec.
Before becoming the Pirate King, Roger teamed up with Monkey D. Garp to defeat the Rocks Pirates, which consisted of Rocks D. Xebec, Whitebeard, Kaido, Big Mom, Shiki. Roger defeated Kaido alongside his entire Roks Pirate crew back in the day. Therefore, Kaido, the beast could never beat Roger in a fight at any given time.
