"People always say if you fight one-on-one, Kaido will win. Because by land, air, or sea... he is the strongest creature alive!"
― Narrator (One Piece)
"Why, precisely, do you think I have served as Captain-Commander of the Gotei 13 for a thousand years? Because in all those thousand years, no Shinigami was born strong enough to challenge me."
― Genryūsai Yamamoto (Bleach)
"You could say he's pure to a frightful extent. A crystallization of martial skill."
― Shou Bun Kun on Hou Ken, the Bushin (Kingdom)
"There's no way some pen pusher who relies only on strategy would've been able to defeat General Ou Ki!! As I thought, You're...a True Monster with both Intellect and Fighting Skills."
― Ri Shin on Ri Boku of Zhao's Three Great Heavens (Kingdom)
"Hmph. Whether it be brains or brawn, I am no match for him. Truly a Monster."
― Duke Tegi's final thoughts on Shou Hei Kun (Kingdom)
"So you've caught my smell like the beast you are. Overcoming every hopeless fight I leave for you. My armies. My pets. Like a killer in a home, you cull my family one by one. And my pet. Oh... you'll pay for that. Feeding you legions in your flight. Like waves on rocks. Eroding you. You could have been part of this. I can only speculate what you were before this. Lonely outsider? Has society shunned you like it has us? If we had met under better circumstances, you could have been a shining acolyte. Now see these fools. Caging that which cannot be caged. They come to understand. You'll understand much the same. But you are a black hole. An atom bomb that walks like a man. You ravage this garden I have tended. This scale model of paradise."
― Jakob to Dusk Dude, in regards to his combat capabilities and potential. (DUSK Graphic Novel)
