At this point, and considering the hype Oden is getting I'm just wondering 2 things:
1) How the hell did Oden even lose to Kaido?
2) Considering Oden did lose, how is Luffy supposed to defeat Kaido?
Oden is at most commander level. His biggest feat until now is beating a monster Luffy could probably CoC into submission. He wasn't even powerful enough to turn his blades black which IMO implies he's weaker than Mihawk.
Let's be honest here, Zoro effortlessly cut a mountain much bigger than that boar, and Oden was care free, but that was definitely not and effortless attack. I also got a sense that Hyougoru was prepared to handle the boar too
Kaidou on the other hand... One shot G4 Luffy effortlessly, destroyed an entire castle in one hit from miles away and fought BM for a few hours.
Their feats aren't even on the same league. And in terms of hype... "The strongest creature of the world"..."If it's one on one bet on Kaidou". Oden doesn't have anything close to it.
I very much doubt Oden was ever stronger than Luffy is currently. Hell, I doubt that he was ever stronger than Zoro will be at the end of the arc.
