One Piece Chapter 1025 shows that Luffy and Momonosuke are ready to return to their greatness – that is, if Momo can figure out how to fly first.
One Piece Chapter # 1024 witnessed the Straw Hats scrambling to regroup and find Luffy, Momonosuke, and Shinobu. The castle is on fire, and the Animal Kingdom Pirates begin to flood the Performance Floor to escape the fire with Alliance members trying to stop them from interfering in the fight between Zoro, Sanji, the King, and the Queen.
Meanwhile, Yamato was still fighting Kaido at the top of the Skull Dome. Back in his childhood, Kaido deprived Yamato of food for calling himself Kozuki Oden, telling the child that he should die for this. During this time, it was discovered that Yamato could unintentionally use Conqueror’s Haki, although this did nothing to lessen the punishment Kaido inflicted on him. In the end, Kaido locked Yamato in a cave with a group of samurai, believing they would kill the boy for being his son. Instead, they sacrificed their lives to help Yamato survive. Back in the present day, Yamato explains to his father that he is not alone and asks why Kaido stole his and Wano’s freedom. The reaction that Kaido gave was an attack of the Eight Trigrams of Thunder.
Chapter #1025 finds Luffy and Momonosuke on their way back to Onigashima – at least, that’s what they’re trying to do. Despite being much older, Momonosuke has not yet fully mastered the art of flying and still suffers from a fear of heights. It is clear that an adult does not magically remove one’s fears. The two walked back and forth, Luffy emphasizing the need to hurry before Kaido destroys everyone on the island. Before we saw Momo take off, One Piece went back to the father-son battle.
After his father’s Bagua attack, Yamato revealed that he protected from the devastating attack with his “Mirror Mountain” technique. A bullet shell burst from around him, after suffering the aftermath of the collision. Yamato then counterattacked with a slash on the Hallowed Glacier, but Kaido knocked it down with little effect. He struck another blow at Yamato, still claiming that the samurai would never accept him. Kaido reminds him that yamato is always alone, but Yamato counters that he has friends, thinking back to the people he has met – including Ace. Kaido calls friendship a sham and says strength is the most important thing for a ruler. He then declares that Yamato never intended to be friends with humans and that that would be his fate.
Meanwhile, Momonosuke has finally figured out how to fly, happy to take advantage of it. He and Luffy pass Onigashima and aim for the roof. Unfortunately, Momo’s aim is slightly off track and instead, they rush into the Stage, shocking everyone. Momo, unable to stop her motives, crashes into the Second Floor and overcomes the fight between Kid, Law, and Big Mom. Luffy begs Momo to open his eyes, but the dragon replies that something is stuck in it.
One Piece Chapter # 1025 then moves back to the roof – Kaido thinks the commotion was caused by Big Mom, but Momo eventually makes it back into the air. Luffy sees Kaido and is ready to attack Gear Four, Snakeman: Gum-Gum White Serpent as soon as Yamato swings his arm at his father again, and the two attacks combine to send Kaido flying. Yamato was happy to see Luffy, who thanked him for keeping Kaido for both of them.
However, before they can celebrate their reunion, Kaido transforms into his dragon form and confronts Momonosuke, asking who he is. Yamato recognized him immediately due to his pink color. Before Momo could answer, Luffy declared that nothing Kaido would do to kill him and asserted that he would be the Pirate King. Momo then spoke up, giving her name and confidence that she would be Wano’s Shogun. Kaido just laughs at them, saying that the world doesn’t need two dragons.
The next chapter of One Piece will be released on Sunday, September 26.
