‘One Piece’ Chapter 998: Are Yamato, Kaido the ‘Ancient Species?’


One Piece Chapter 998 spoilers are now out, and it teases Yamato and Kaido are part of ancient species.

One Piece Chapter 998 will bear the title “Ancient Species,” and there are predictions that it can be about Kaido and Yamato. However, there are also theories that the breed talked about here is a new character coming.

Kaido, Yamato’s descent

It has been known that Kaido can transform into a massive dragon. However, it is yet to be confirmed if this ability is from a devil fruit.

In the new chapter, fans may know if Kaido is a real dragon that can turn into a human form and vice versa without the help of a devil fruit.

In the One Piece world, it is possible to transform into human-fish hybrids or human-animals hybrid, called Mink species.

There is also a human-dragon hybrid, which may be Kaido’s descent, BlockToro noted.

On the other hand, Yamato also showed her transformation in the previous chapter. She has horns like his father, and an image of her is also seen in One Piece Chapter 998.

This only confirms that Kaido and Yamato are human-dragon hybrids, and they don’t need devil fruit to turn into dragons. They both belong to ancient species that the new installment may be all about.

The fight between the Beast Pirates, Tobi Roppo members

Meanwhile, aside from Kaido and Yamato’s descent, One Piece Chapter 998 will also feature an epic battle.

The fight will be between the Straw Hat Pirates, composed of Jinbe, Vinsmoke Sanji, and Cyborg Franky, and Tobi Roppo’s Black Maria, Who’s Who, and Sasaki.

Inquisitr noted fans last saw Jinbe with Luffy, heading to the rooftop where Kaido was located. At the time, the Beast Pirates captain was going head-to-head with the Nine Red Scabbards.

In One Piece Chapter 998, Jinbe will be quite busy going against one of the strongest allies of the Beast Pirates. Who’s Who will suddenly show in front of Jinbe and Luffy, leaving the Knight of the Sea with no choice but to face him.

To let Luffy go for his goal to reach Kaido, Jinbe will have a one-on-one fight with Who’s Who.

As a user of Neko Neko no Mi model Sabertooth or Smilodon, will Jinbe win over Who’s Who?

Fans are about to witness a lot of intense turn of events in One Piece Chapter 998, which will be out on Sunday, Dec 13. It will be available for free on VIZ media, Shonen Jump, and MangaPlus’ official website and platforms.
