Who is Yamato?

Everything you need to know about Yamato

Yamato is a recently introduced character. She is the daughter of Kaido and one of the strongest crew members. If you did not know Kaido is one of the (Yonko = “Yon” means Four and “Ko” means Emperor) Four Emperors and captain of The Beast Pirates. Yamato is a huge follower of Kozoko Oden. Even Yamato dress and behave like Kozoki Oden. And also known as Self-Styled Kozoki Oden.

Her first appearance in manga is chapter 971 and in anime in episode 972. Many people did not recognize her because her first appearance is just a few seconds long. I mean quite short.

What is Yamato’s gender?

There are lots of One Piece fans confuse about the gender of Yamato. Because when Yamato’s father Kaido addresses Yamato his son in from of Tobi Roppo. But Yamato’s appearance is more like a girl.

Well, now Yamato’s gender is confirmed in recent chapters. Yamato is female. As I said above she is a follower or fan of Kozuki Oden. That’s why she becomes the next Oden to keep his legacy alive.

She dresses, behaves, and even talks like Oden. That’s not it because Oden is a Man. So, She also becomes a man (Not biologically). Everyone around her recognizes as a male.

Will Yamato join straw hats?

Everything you need to know about Yamato

The next most asked question after knowing Yamato’s friendly behavior towards Luffu is will Yamato join straw hats? Well, there is nothing confirmed yet but there are some fan theories in the One Piece community.

Most One Piece fans think Yamato will be the next member of Strawhat’s. Below you get some possible reasons.

First, Luffy said at the start of the series is he want 10 members in his crew. Excluding Luffy, because he is the captain. There is only 9 member after joining Boss Jinbei.

Second, Same like Oden, she is restricted to live in Onigashima. Yamato wants to travel around the world on a ship. And Luffy’s crew is best in for achieving her dream

Third, In one chapter of the manga Yamato asked Luffy if she can join his crew. Her dialog is “As Kozuki Oden and since you are ace’s little brother I thought you would let me Board your ship”. And Luffy did not reject any crew member yet.

These reasons are more than enough. But it all depends on Eiichiro Oda – the author of One Piece.

Yamato’s devil fruit and strengths

Inu Inu no Mi

Yamato is one of the most powerful characters in the One Piece world. Also, she is the second strongest female character after Big Mom. But strong she is?

Devil fruit of Yamato is the same as other Beast Pirates. It’s Zoan-Type “Inu Inu no Mi” or the “Dog Dog Devil Fruit”. Her devil fruit mod is “Makmi”. But without her devil fruit, Yamato is quite a fighter.
She is a user of Advance Haki. And because have the blood of Kaido himself – She born with Superhuman strength, speed, and reflexes.

Why is Yamato fighting her father, Kaido in One Piece?

When One Piece fans ask this question then there is a big list of reasons. In short, Yamato hates her father, Kaido. That’s why she wants to get revenge. Let’s read the reason why she hates Kaido so much.

  • 1. Everything starts from the execution of Kozuki Oden. Yamato admires Oden from her childhood but Oden is executed by his father. That’s the biggest reason. She wants to avenge Kuzuki Oden.
  • 2. She gets beaten up by Kaido because she loves Oden. Kaido did not want his daughter to admire his enemy. Her past is filled with the brutal beating by her father.
  • 3. Last but not least, She is Imprisoned and Blackmail to stay in Onigashima. She is not allowed to leave Onigashima. For this reason, she has prison neck cuffs in her neck. Who would do it with their child?

Why does everyone like Yamato?

Everything you need to know about Yamato
