- The fight between Luffy and Kaido will finally end this chapter.

Spoilers ahead of the latest One piece chapter
One piece Reddit chapter 1049 spoilers are out, which means it’s time to take a look at how the acclaimed manga will progress as we approach the climax of the Wano arc. The battle between Luffy and Kaido has been going on for several chapters and is just beginning in the anime, but since Luffy achieved his Gear 5 transformation, it is clear that the battle was coming to an end. One piece 1049 is that conclusion, thankfully.
‘One Piece’ 1049 spoilers reveal part of Kaido’s backstory
the fans waited One piece author Eiichiro Oda to include the backstory of the most menacing antagonist in history for years at this point. Flashbacks have been a staple of Oda’s storytelling since the early days of the One piece manga, and is known for including tragic stories to accentuate the clash of ideals in key battles. Examples of this include Luffy’s battle against Rob Lucci, as well as his most recent battle against Charlotte Katakuri.
In it One piece 1049 spoilers, we see that Kaido’s flashback goes back to the early days. He grew up in the Vodka Kingdom, which is hilariously appropriate given Kaido’s character trait of getting violently drunk no matter what the occasion. In the Vodka Kingdom, he meets Whitebeard, who alerts him to the fact that the legendary pirate Rocks wants to meet him.
Rocks D. Xebec is famous for being the pirate who was able to bring Whitebeard, Big Mom, and Kaido together as part of the same pirate crew. These characters became the strongest pirates of the next generation (besides, of course, the King of the Pirates: Gol D. Roger, who we just learned didn’t have devil fruit powers).
More details will surely be included when the chapter officially launches on Sunday, but this is a good preview to give us some details, thanks to Etenboy from WG Forums.
Luffy vs. Kaido is finally finished
Where chapter 1048 ended, Luffy menacingly raised his incredibly large fist above Kaido’s head and the entire floating Onigashima. In fact, that’s how chapter 1047 ended, leading fans to draw comparisons to the iconic “five minutes until the planet explodes” moment from the Namek Saga. Dragon Ball.
This time, Oda will not leave fans with just a sneak peek. The One piece Spoilers for 1049 reveal that Luffy’s huge punch will connect with Kaido, leaving him defeated as Onigashima moves out of the way. This is preceded by a speech from Luffy in which he says, more or less, that his goal is to create a world where none of his friends starve. Luffy’s punch sends Kaido flying into the Flower Capitol, where the citizens of Wano are celebrating.
This may make you wonder: how will Onigashima stay afloat if Kaido is defeated? There is a brief note that Momonosuke is finally able to create a cloud of flames so he can get the castle and island out of the way.
At the end of the spoilers, Kaido has another flashback where he remembers telling his right-hand man King that Joy Boy will be the man to defeat him. Luffy is the heir to Hito Hito no Mi: Model Nika makes this a self-fulfilling prophecy as he lies defeated by the “next Joy Boy”.
There’s a break next week, according to ‘One Piece’ spoilers post 1049
Unfortunately, after One piece 1049 pitches, there will be a break next week. This follows the usual cadence of three chapters followed by a pause. The only reason the cadence was broken was because of Golden Week which delayed chapter 1048.
With the One piece 1049 spoilers confirming that Kaido’s backstory won’t last more than half a chapter, it will be interesting to see what Oda does with a milestone One piece chapter 1050. The story may focus on the aftermath of Kaido’s defeat. Maybe there will be reactions from the others on the island, although all of Kaido and Big Mom’s top lieutenants have already been defeated. A more likely outcome is for Oda to focus on how Momonsuke will land on the floating island of Onigashima. After Big Mom’s defeat, there is a conveniently located crater that might be a better place to land than on top of the citizens in the Flower Capitol.
Still, there is a possibility of a return to flashbacks. Since the end of the chapter has Kaido recalling his thoughts on Joy Boy, maybe we’ll see more of that. The Wano arc has been going on since chapter 909, so maybe Oda is ready to finally land this plane.
Until chapter 1050 is released, we will only have to abide by the One piece 1049 spoilers. More detailed spoilers should be released in the next 24 hours, with the leaked chapter likely to arrive on Thursday or Friday. You can read the official chapter on Sunday at 11am ET on the Shonen Jump app.
