|Ahoy! This here is the 205th Featured Article.
"Eustass Kid" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.
During the timeskip, Kid lost one of his arms in a confrontation against one of the Four Emperors, Shanks,  and attempted to form an alliance with the On Air Pirates and Hawkins Pirates to challenge the Red Hair Pirates once more, but it was eventually disbanded due to an encounter with another Emperor, Kaidou.
One of the reasons his bounty was higher than Luffy's when they arrived at the Sabaody Archipelago was the huge numbers of civilian casualties that Kid and his crew caused in the course of their activities. Sometime during the timeskip, his bounty was raised from 315,000,000 to 470,000,000. Kid's bounty would eventually reach a massive value of 3,000,000,000 thanks to his direct contributions to the downfall of one of the Four Emperors, Big Mom.
Kid and his crew briefly join forces with the Straw Hat Pirates and Heart Pirates during the Sabaody Archipelago Arc. He also becomes an ally member of the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance during the Wano Country Arc.
Kid is a tall, muscular man with light skin and bright red hair, resembling flames. His nose has a particular shape, being quite pointed and having little protrusions on both sides. He has dark reddish purple colored lips and fingernails, red/orange eyes and no eyebrows.
He dresses in an extravagant attire consisting of black and yellow lizard-print pants with a red fringe, motorcycle boots, and a blue sash under a green belt fastened by a large circular buckle with a four-leaf clover-like pattern in the middle. He also has a slim bandolier, also with minuscule bolts that go diagonally over his right shoulder then ties to his waist, where he keeps a dagger with a Japanese-style hilt and what appears to be a flintlock gun. He also has gold bangles around both wrists.
He wears a pair of studded, square shaped goggles on his forehead, and a large fur captain's coat over his bare muscular torso. The dark brown coat is adorned with spikes on its shoulders lined in maroon. The collar of the coat is extremely flared and wide. He typically wears this coat with his right arm in its sleeve and his left arm under the coat itself.
In SBS Volume 64, Oda drew the Supernovas as children. Kid is shown with spikier and more spread-out hair, similar to a lion's mane. He also wore larger and rounder goggles and did not have dark lips. He was depicted tinkering with a toy robot with a wrench. His blue sleeveless shirt has a sewn patch, like his yellow striped pants, and has a patch.
After the timeskip, he is shown with slightly longer hair that appears to be pushed back. He also has a large scar that drags from the left side of his forehead, goes down his neck and another smaller one that goes through his left eye. There are two parallel scars on his lower right arm also. He lost his left arm to just above the elbow during the two-year timeskip in a battle against the Red Hair Pirates, and until his imprisonment by the Beasts Pirates, he replaced it with a mechanical one that is somehow connected to his nervous system, shown by the presence of several metallic wires embedded directly into his skin. The mechanical arm was damaged in his fight against Kaidou, and later stripped from him to disarm him and put him at further disadvantage if he rebelled against his captor. His attire consists of his trademark spotted pants, a black opened vest, held down by a belted war kilt. He also has a long dark red coat, worn over his shoulders. He appears to have become more muscular and also has scars on his right forearm, left pectoral, and on the left side of his abdomen. He no longer wears any impractical jewelry.
Eustass Kid comes off as a vicious, temperamental and bloodthirsty pirate, notorious for causing huge amounts of civilian casualties. When he feels that he is being mocked or insulted, even through a glance, he is quick to resort to violence. He also seems to be cruel even when not provoked, crucifying another defeated pirate crew just because he deemed them too weak to roam around in the New World. While Kid is capable of restraining his anger in certain situations, he will absolutely throw all caution to the wind when said situation involves someone who previously wronged him, going straight for revenge.
Kid is bold, cocky and fearless, known to run into danger regardless of the consequences. He does not hesitate to challenge the Four Emperors, having previously fought Kaidou and Shanks and destroyed two ships belonging to Big Mom. Kid rarely backs down from a battle, and may fight a powerful enemy until his last breath. The fact that he did not join the Beasts Pirates despite not standing a chance against Kaidou is a testament to Kid's disposition. Kid seems to believe that possessing the determination to achieve the impossible is necessary to survive in the New World, and that anyone who does not is as good as dead.
Kid has an inquisitive side, wanting to keep up-to-date with the events of the New World. Despite not being a broker, he watched the broadcast of Caesar Clown's experiment just to be informed, otherwise showing no real interest in the experiment itself. He seems to be rather prideful, not wanting to be the subject of false rumors. After overhearing Caribou talking to Luffy about how he had lost his arm, Kid was quick to clarify about it.
Kid is shown to be quite cynical about the World Government. He is not blind to the way the World Nobles act, remarking that, compared to them, pirates are almost humane in nature and honest about their faults, unlike the Nobles that justify their abuses of power through ancestry. After Camie got sold in the Human Auctioning House to Charlos, Kid declared that the whole affair was a "farce" and similarly held a similar point of view regarding the broadcast of the Summit War of Marineford, calling it a "charade". For this reason, he felt amusement and catharsis when the world noble Charlos was punched down by an irate Luffy.
|— Eustass Kid|
Kid has the same dream as Luffy: to find One Piece and become the new Pirate King. Because of this, and Luffy's recklessness, he seems to have a great deal of respect for him. However, while they often encounter the same problems, Kid deals with them in his own way, apparently slaughtering anyone and everyone who ever laughed at his ambition, in some ways being an antithesis to Luffy. Surprisingly, belying his rough attitude, Kid can be childishly competitive, especially when Luffy and [[Trafalgar D. Water Law|Law}} are involved.
Another similarity Kid has to Luffy is a strong degree of affection for his crewmates. Kid will recklessly defend or rescue his subordinates if they are mocked or in danger. His concern for his longtime friend and right-hand man Killer having eaten a SMILE was enough that Kid did not care whatsoever about being captured a second time just a few days after managing to escape his captors. Kid is also rather gluttonous, not minding hard labor as long as he gets access to large amounts of food.
Unlike Luffy, however, Kid is rather unfriendly and mistrusting of others, rarely leaving his guard down. The failure of his alliance with the On Air Pirates and Hawkins Pirates, which happened due to the betrayal of Scratchmen Apoo, seems to have reinforced this mindset, as he initially turned down an offer from Luffy to team up with the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance. Kid would eventually change his mind, but still acts as a reluctant ally for the most part, only joining forces with Luffy for the sake of their rivalry.
Kid seems to have a good relationship with his crewmembers that have been revealed. Killer keeps his captain calm when he gets angered. Wire and Heat hold high respect and concern for their captain. According to Basil Hawkins, Kid's crew was forced to work under the Kurozumi Family and the Beasts Pirates, with the life of their captain being used as a bargaining chip.
After becoming Kaidou's prisoner, Kid was noticeably worried about what had happened to his crew and tried looking for them around the first time he escaped from the Prisoner Mine at Udon. Once he was freed for the second time thanks to Luffy's efforts, he still prioritized finding the rest of his crewmates and stated that he would only trust them from now on, as a result of Apoo and Hawkins' betrayal.
Both Kid and Killer grew up together, so they share a close bond that goes back to childhood. Kid refers to Killer as his partner and is aware that the latter is sensitive about his own strange laugh, which is why, despite being unaware about Killer having eaten a defective SMILE, he knew something was wrong with his subordinate. This was enough for Kid to attempt a reckless rescue of his friend, which led to his second capture from the Beasts Pirates after managing to escape the first time.
Killer has displayed immense loyalty for Kid multiple times; it was due to Kid's life being in danger that Killer ate a defective SMILE fruit and became a subordinate of Kurozumi Orochi, showcasing extreme loyalty for Kid. Another notable instance of this happened during the war against the Beasts Pirates at Onigashima, when Hawkins managed to link his life to Kid's, which forced Killer on the defensive so he would not accidentally kill his captain, even begging Hawkins to take his life instead as long as he left Kid's alone.
Killer usually acts as the voice of reason for his captain, making sure Kid stays focused and does not lose sight of his goals due to impulsiveness.
As a member of the Worst Generation, he sees the other 100,000,000+ bounty rookies he encountered in the Sabaody Archipelago as his rivals, specifically Law and Luffy.
Monkey D. Luffy
|— Kid after reading the article concerning Luffy's second visit to Marineford|
Kid sees Luffy as a prominent rival for the mantle of the next Pirate King, once declaring that they would become enemies in the New World. After the Whitebeard War, he stated that he was not generous enough to let Luffy run around as he pleased, showing intent to compete with him for notoriety. Regardless, Luffy has earned Kid's interest with his actions against the World Government prior to their first meeting, with Kid coming to respect Luffy for assaulting a World Noble and being the only Supernova to join the war. After the timeskip, he expressed amusement when he watched Luffy's capture on Punk Hazard.
After they met again in a prison at Wano Country, they became competitive with each other and would argue on who did more work. Despite this rivalry, they cooperated to defeat the deputy warden Dobon after he confronted them and tried to punish them for taking most of the prison's rations. Luffy also showed some concern for Kid when Queen threatened to drown him. After he was freed, Luffy offered an alliance to take down Kaidou, but Kid rejected the offer as he still felt bitter about being betrayed during his previous alliance with Apoo and Hawkins. However, he joined Luffy and Law in the battle against the Beasts Pirates, not wanting Luffy to get all the glory in defeating Kaidou. Afterwards, despite his bounty increase, Kid's rivalry with Luffy is reignited when Luffy is chosen for the position of one of the Four Emperors over him which Kid is angry about and has threatened to kill him.
Despite frequent denials about viewing Luffy as an ally, Kid seemingly trusts the Straw Hat captain's strength. While battling Big Mom by his lone self, Kid was visibly pleased upon learning that Luffy, even while knocked out, would not give up until he won against Kaidou, in spite of previous announcements that claimed he had died in combat against the Emperor.
Trafalgar D. Water Law
|— Kid about Law|
In the manga, Law gave Kid the finger when he (presumably) overheard Kid talking behind his back regarding rumors of how Law's manners appear to be rather lacking. Later on, when Kid volunteered to deal with the Marines amassing outside of the Auctioning House as a farewell gift to Rayleigh as well as the Straw Hats and the Heart Pirates, both Law and Luffy took Kid's cockiness as an insult and opted to follow him outside in order to compete with the fellow super rookie. When Kid insisted that he alone is sufficient enough for the task and orders the other two to step down, Law was the first to retaliate by stating he will take Kid out first should he order him about one more time. Nevertheless, he sided once again with Kid after the two crews were confronted by a Pacifista.
Kid seems to have retained an interest in Law in the New World and was pleased to see he was planning something and was not just a "Government Dog". Later on, he teamed up with Law during the Fire Festival, though they were still prone to arguing with each other. Kid seems to like mocking Law for his alliance with Luffy, especially since Law often follows Luffy's words.
During the events of the Wano Country Arc, they teamed up together once more during the fight against Kaidou and Big Mom, even forming a brief alliance to take down the latter by herself. Despite Kid's protests about Law seemingly getting in his way and their general bickering over trivial things, he was able to work alongside the Surgeon of Death to defeat the Emperor.
|— Eustass Kid, commenting on the World Nobles.|
As a pirate with a tremendously high bounty, he is an enemy of the Marines. Before the timeskip, his strict behavior against innocent civilians earned him a high bounty. He, along with Trafalgar Law and Monkey D. Luffy, fought against many marine units at Sabaody Archipelago, with their combined being acknowledged by many of the infantrymen there.
Kid also despises the World Nobles and their actions, finding the notion that they can just own whoever they wanted due to their untouchable status as as "farce". Apparently, Kid became a pirate himself with the intent of rebelling against what he considered the "scum" who ruled the world.
No direct interaction has been shown between the two, but Kid formed an alliance with fellow captains Basil Hawkins and Scratchmen Apoo to overthrow the Emperor, Red-Haired Shanks. Kid also confirmed that he lost his arm in an encounter with the Red Hair Pirates.
During the timeskip, Kid invaded Totto Land and injured one of Big Mom's Sweet Commanders before stealing something of value from the Emperor. He later sunk two of the Emperor's ships while having no concern if she retaliated. Despite this hostility, Kid stated that he has no interest in going after Big Mom.
Kid met Big Mom again at Onigashima, with Kid taking part in the group who faced the duo of Kaidou and Big Mom at the top of the Skull Dome. Kid was one of the Supernovas responsible for pushing Big Mom out of the Skull Dome's rooftop, which caused her to nearly drown into Wano Country's sea. When Big Mom made her way back into Onigashima, she specifically targeted Kid with her new homie Hera and angrily called out for him to reveal himself at her, still visibly furious about the stunt he had pulled that almost killed her.
Big Mom seemingly did not take Kid seriously until he and Law managed to severely injure her. The resulting damage was enough to impress the Emperor, who then started to acknowledge their threat, even going as far as sacrificing some of her own life to gain additional power so she could crush the two.
In the end, however, Big Mom's efforts were still not enough to take down Kid and Law, who both showed no fear at all towards her status as one of the Emperors, meaning they are immune to her Soul Pocus. Once Kid and Law managed to launch her down into a crater, Big Mom, confident that she would not die, swore that they would pay.
Kid encountered Kaidou when the latter fell out of the sky and landed at the Kid Pirates' hideout before coming face to face with the rookie pirate. Kid refused to submit to Kaidou and tried to fight him only to be defeated and captured. Kaidou then imprisoned Kid, hoping to eventually break his spirit.
During his imprisonment, Kid was shown to hold a strong grudge against Kaidou and firmly told Luffy that he would be the one to defeat the Emperor. However, after seeing what happened to Killer, Kid decided to prioritize finding the rest of his crew and rejected Luffy's offer for an alliance.
After getting his crew back, he joined Luffy and Law to take down Kaidou, but just for the glory of defeating him and getting back for what the Beasts Pirates had done to him and his crew, not for the Kozuki revolution. He took part in the confrontation against both Kaidou and Big Mom at the top of the Skull Dome.
Kid once got into a fight with Apoo at Sabaody Archipelago, but they both agreed to postpone their fight until after they entered the New World. During their meeting in the New World, Apoo wrecked Kid's hideout and beat up one of his crew members because of the possibility that Kid was hiding a sniper, enraging Kid and resulting in a scuffle. However, it was revealed shortly after that they in fact planned to form an alliance. Despite their differences, they came into an agreement.
Kid and Apoo seemed to have gotten on more amiable terms with each other as themselves and their crews were able to eat and party together. However, after the encounter with Kaidou, Apoo revealed himself to be a spy for the Beasts Pirates, having already joined Kaidou beforehand and letting the Emperor know about the location of their Pirate Alliance, leading to Kid distrusting other pirates except his own crew. Upon seeing Apoo again during the raid on Onigashima, Kid wasted no time attacking him, even disregarding the risk of revealing his presence to the Beasts Pirates. Apoo did not regret betraying Kid, as he himself looked down to the concept of alliances, thinking they never ended well.
Hawkins was another Worst Generation captain that Kid formed an alliance with, alongside Apoo. At first, Hawkins showed impatience regarding Kid and Apoo's animosity and nearly left the meeting but was convinced by Killer to stay. Kid and Hawkins eventually came into an agreement, with Hawkins' crew later being shown partying with the Kid and On Air Pirates.
However, when Kaidou crashed into Kid's hideout and faced the alliance, Hawkins did not stand up against the Emperor and accepted to join the Beasts Pirates out of survival. He did witness Kid and Killer fighting Kaidou to the end, and was aware that Kid would not submit himself to anyone.
Later at Onigashima, Hawkins confronted both Kid and Killer. Kid considered Hawkins a traitor, but the latter justified himself that he had been betrayed by Apoo as well and followed the only choice he had at the time.  Ultimately, Killer fought Hawkins on his own and was able to defeat him on Kid's behalf.
Abilities and Powers
As the captain of the Kid Pirates, Eustass Kid has complete authority over the crew. During the timeskip, the Kid Pirates continued to rise in infamy, as evidenced by Kid and Killer's bounties increasing, and their willingness to attack Big Mom's ships.
Prior to the timeskip, Kid and his crew were known for dealing major destruction and civilian casualties along their route through the Grand Line and towards the New World. Kid is a fearsome pirate who, along with the rest of his crew, showed flawless resistance to the Haki pulse emitted by Silvers Rayleigh at the Human Auctioning House and effortlessly defeated a large group of Marines alongside Monkey D. Luffy and Trafalgar Law. He along with his crew also managed to escape from Admiral Kizaru's attack.
After the timeskip, Kid appears to have become much bolder and more powerful, challenging the Red Haired Pirates to a battle and wounding one of Big Mom's Sweet Commanders, as well as later destroying two ships belonging to her. His bounty rose to 470,000,000. During the raid on Onigashima, he has shown to be powerful enough to fight against the two Emperors, Kaidou and Big Mom, dealing damage to them despite their near-impenetrable defenses.
In his confrontation against Big Mom, soon with Law's help, Kid could still put up a fight against her, who received insignificant damage, struggling at first from unknowingly receiving Hawkins' damage. From their joint efforts, the two Supernovas, often using their awakened powers managed to push Big Mom towards her limits and landing a devastating blow against the feared Emperor, resulting in her eventual defeat. Having defeated the former Emperor, Big Mom, Kid gained a bounty of 3,000,000,000, making him one of the most dangerous pirates in the world; surpassing the current Emperor, Blackbeard.
Kid has a strong will, remaining defiant towards Kaidou despite the torture he had to endure for so long during his imprisonment.
Kid possesses immense physical strength and resilience. While being cuffed with Seastone, which depletes the energy of Devil Fruit users, he was able to match Luffy's speed in carrying and delivering large stone blocks bigger than him even with only one arm. He was also able to endure the torture of his imprisonment by the Beasts Pirates. More impressively, Kid has enough power to clash with a member of the Four Emperors head on, being able to withstand or even overpower direct attacks from the monstrously strong Big Mom.
Kid has an extraordinary recovery rate, as one of the prison guards said that his body could heal in a few days. Similar to Luffy, Kid has an incredible metabolism where he can eat large amounts of food, to the point where he becomes fat and round, but instantly burns all the calories to replenish his stamina.
Kid is also an extremely skilled hand-to-hand combatant. While bound by Seastone cuffs and with only one arm, he managed to defeat Dobon, a Shinuchi of the Beast Pirates, alongside Luffy. Kid also managed to escape the Udon Prisoner Mine, while still cuffed in Seastone shackles.
Kid ate the Jiki Jiki no Mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows him to manipulate magnetic forces. He can attract and/or repel metal objects as he pleases, and he can also create magnetic fields that allow him to arrange metal objects into various configurations and constructs.
Kid can arrange the metal objects stuck to his body into a variety of shapes, with his most common technique being to form a gigantic metal arm to unleash powerful attacks with. In addition to covering his real arms with metal, Kid was also shown using his magnetism to form a rough replacement left arm after his cybernetic left arm was removed by the Beasts Pirates.
This power makes Kid a very dangerous opponent against fighters who use metal weapons, since he can either repel metal projectiles, such as cannonballs and bullets, or attract his enemies' blades and guns towards himself to use as building material for his own attacks.
Kid has achieved Devil Fruit Awakening, allowing him to bestow magnetic properties onto things other than his own body. By his own admission, he has not fully mastered his awakened powers and it takes a serious toll on his stamina.
Kid is one of the very few people in the world who is capable of using all three forms of Haki.
Kid carries around a flintlock pistol and a dagger. While he was on the verge of unsheathing the latter in various occasions, he never actually used it in combat. Sometime during the timeskip his left arm was replaced with a mechanical one, making him a cyborg.
Not much is known about Kid's early life, other than he is originally from the South Blue and has known Killer since childhood. While they were kids, they ate curry udon with their first love, Shiruton Doruyanaika. They laughed when she spilled curry broth all over herself while eating it, causing her to beat them up. This caused curry udon to become their least favorite food.
In their young adult years, Kid and Killer formed their own crew, the Kid Pirates, with Kid as the captain and Killer as his right-hand man. They were noted to have been responsible for a great deal of damage and had caused many civilian casualties for the slightest provocations along their journey. By the time he was 19 years old, he had already achieved an infamous reputation, having been mentioned by Portgas D. Ace four years ago as having caused a significant impact in the sea.
They eventually entered the Grand Line in search of the One Piece. After a long voyage following one of the Log Pose routes of the Grand Line, Kid and his crew arrived at the Sabaody Archipelago to prepare themselves for the New World. By that time, Kid had earned himself a staggering bounty of 315,000,000, making him a member of the as-of-yet named Worst Generation alongside Killer.
Summit War Saga
Sabaody Archipelago Arc
While at the archipelago, he had a little squabble with Scratchmen Apoo in Grove 24. Before their battle could escalate further, Apoo asked Kid to postpone it until they went to the New World. Knowing what would happen if an incident were to happen, Kid agreed to Apoo's terms.
Kid and his crew then ventured deeper into the mangrove and entered the Human Auctioning House. As Kid waited for the auction to begin, he made a number of remarks to his crew, claiming that the World Nobles make pirates seem humane by comparison and bemoaning the twisted nature of the world order, before noting that he might actually join in on the slave auction. Kid later caught a glimpse of Trafalgar Law, who was already sitting for the auction, and was flipped off by the pirate doctor. As the auction began, Kid noticed some members of the Straw Hat Pirates coming in and was disappointed to find the captain was not with them at the time, noting that he wished to see just how big an idiot and how crazy Monkey D. Luffy is supposed to be, as depicted in the newspapers.
Kid watched through most of the auction, until the World Noble Saint Charlos made an outrageously high 500,000,000 bid for the mermaid, Camie, which completely shut out the other participants in the auction. Seeing the noble went unchallenged, Kid decided to leave the auction house, considering it another example of what is wrong with the world. However, before he and his crew left the building, Luffy and Roronoa Zoro crashed through the wall right next to them. What followed next then was a ruckus caused by Luffy that caught Kid's eye. As the events unraveled, Kid, along with the rest of the crowd, watched in shock as Luffy punched Charlos out of anger for shooting his fish-man ally, Hatchan. While most of everyone in the auction house started panicking at this turn of events, Kid, as well as Trafalgar Law, simply smiled approvingly at what happened.
Just as Kid was watching the ensuing chaos, he noticed that someone suddenly came out of the back of the auction house's stage, along with a giant. He then witnessed the person knocking out nearly everyone in the place except for the Straw Hats and their allies with Haki. Having taken the blast and survived through it, Kid realized that this person was none other than Gol D. Roger's first mate, Silvers Rayleigh. As the situation continued, Kid and those still conscious realized that a bunch of Marines were surrounding the auction house for what Luffy did.
Though happy at seeing how crazy Luffy is as the rumors stated, Kid decided not to stick around to fight a Marine Admiral. Seeing as how the Marines were treating Kid's and Law's crews as if they were accomplices to the Straw Hats, Kid told Luffy and Law that he would go on ahead and clear a way for them so that they would not have to worry themselves. However, Luffy and Law were insulted by Kid's remarks, and instead decided to go face the Marines along with him. Together, the three captains began to fight the Marines outside the auction house with their respective Devil Fruit powers. Luffy noted that both Kid and Law have crazy powers, with Kid responding that Luffy had the weirdest.
After beating back the first wave of Marine attacks and scattering them, Kid noted that their plan of attack was utterly demolished. He bid Luffy farewell and stated that it was nice meeting him, but promised that the next time they meet, he would not be so merciful. Luffy unconcernedly replied that he would be the one to find One Piece. Both Kid and Law stared at Luffy and were even distracted from the attacking Marines. Killer defended Kid and scolded him for not paying attention. Kid reflected to Luffy that on his voyage, people had laughed when he made the same claim and he killed everyone who laughed at him. He also stated that from this point, anyone without the nerve to claim One Piece would die on the seas. He invited both Luffy and Law to meet up with him in the New World before departing with his crew.
After defeating the Marines, the Kid Pirates were on their way to leave the island when moments later, Kid and his crew were confronted by what they believed to be Warlord of the Sea Bartholomew Kuma (later revealed to be a Pacifista). It surprised both Kid and the pirates when it fired a laser from its mouth which hit Kid's left leg. Law and his crew happened to encounter them while escaping as well and, despite Kid telling Law to stay back (which is met once again by Law's earlier threat), they both prepared to fight against the Pacifista.
Kid and his crew managed to escape capture by the Pacifista and later returned to Sabaody Archipelago. They watched the live broadcast of the execution of Portgas D. Ace up until it was cut off by the Marines. After this, Kid told his men they were departing.
The Kid Pirates then approached Marineford and watched the war unfold from a safe distance on board of their ship. After the war was declared over by Sengoku, Kid commented that since Whitebeard died, the balance of the Three Great Powers was shifted with the New World under the control of the remaining Emperors Shanks, Kaidou, and Big Mom. Kid went on saying that the New Age, the likes of which no one has ever seen before, had begun.
Kid and his crew later arrived in the New World. He was reading aloud from the newspaper article about Luffy going to Marineford a second time. After Killer's explanation about the Ox Bell, Kid thought Luffy's message meant a declaration of creating the new age himself. Kid found this amusing and acknowledged Luffy's boldness, but, at the same time, he was not generous enough to let Luffy stay ahead of him much longer. He then took Haritsu Kendiyo and his pirate crew captive and crucified them using his Devil Fruit powers despite their pleas for mercy, saying that people with that little amount of resolve had no business in the New World.
During the Timeskip
Sometime during the two-year timeskip, as Kid got very involved in many conflicts, he lost his left forearm in battle against the Red Hair Pirates. He later replaced it with a large metal one.
At some point after this, Kid and his crew went to Big Mom's territory and injured one of Big Mom's Sweet Commanders, as well as plundering something. However, they were quickly forced to flee afterwards.
Punk Hazard Arc
A few days after sinking two of the Big Mom Pirates' ships, Kid watched Caesar Clown's broadcast of his new weapon of mass destruction via a video Den Den Mushi. When asked by Killer if he was interested in purchasing said weapon, he denied it, simply wanting to satisfy his curiosity about news on the black market despite his unaffiliation with broker activities.
After seeing his fellow Supernovas Luffy and Law captured, Kid then left the broadcast at the urging of Killer to meet up with some apparent guests they had summoned beforehand. Kid also mentioned that he was surprised about how Law was really planning something all along, having believed he had become a mere government dog.
Opening the door to the meeting room of his hideout, it was revealed that the guests were none other than Scratchman Apoo and Basil Hawkins. Apoo, standing amongst a wrecked room and over one of Kid's badly beaten subordinates, started taunting Kid, leading him to instantly become enraged at the Longarm due to the damage he had caused. As the two challenged each other, Hawkins declared how foolish the meeting was and that he was leaving. Killer asked him to wait as he stepped between Kid and Apoo, reminding them that the three crews came together to try and form an alliance and asked that they at least try to discuss it.
A newspaper later revealed that the three captains came to an agreement and formed an alliance.
Kid, Hawkins, and Apoo were dining together when they heard the news of Donquixote Doflamingo's defeat. They figured that Luffy and Law were after Kaidou since Doflamingo was connected to him. They were pleased that Luffy and Law were not after the same Emperor as them, Shanks.
Some time later, Kid and the others were alerted by what seemed to be an earthquake. Kid instructed his men to have their weapons drawn and drew closer to investigate. The source of the commotion was a large crater on the ground in the shape of a human. Kid was enraged and demanded an answer as to what person was behind this occurrence. He was answered by another explosion in the direction of the crater. It was then revealed that the man who had caused the explosion was Kaidou. At that time, Kid, Killer, and Hawkins discovered that Apoo was already working for Kaidou with the intention of setting them up to join him as his subordinates. While Hawkins joined Kaidou, Kid and Killer refused to submit to the Emperor and tried to fight him, only to be defeated.
Four Emperors Saga
After the confrontation with Kaidou, Kid was severely beaten and imprisoned by the Emperor and his crew somewhere at Onigashima as Kaidou commented on Luffy's actions at Dressrosa. At some point, Kid was relocated to the Prisoner Mine in order to have his spirit broken.
One Piece: Stampede
Kid and his crew attended the Pirates Festival on Delta Island. He participated in the main event, the Treasure Race, safely sailing up the Knock Up Stream and landing on the central Treasure Island, where all the pirates raced for Gol D. Roger's treasure, all the while battling other Worst Generation members. When Buggy ended up exposing himself after snatching the treasure, Kid and his crew chased after the Warlord. However, the Treasure Race was cut short, when someone threw a galleon at the island, destroying it, and sending everything plummeting back to the surface. When Kid realized that the one who did this was Douglas Bullet, he was quite surprised. In the end, he gave into Bullet's taunting, and together with the other Worst Generation members (except for Zoro and Law) attacked the Demon Heir. At first the Worst Generation pirates managed to deal a few good blows on the veteran, but when the opponent revealed his Gasha Gasha no Mi powers, the battle quickly ended in their defeat.
Later, after Bullet was defeated, his crew along with the other Worst Generation pirates and several other crews attempted to breakthrough the Marines encirclement surrounding the island. They were able to successfully escape thanks to Sabo and Ann creating a blazing barrier to protect them.
Concludes non-canon section.
Wano Country Arc
In the Udon region of Wano Country, Kid was sitting in a cell of the Prisoner Mine when Luffy was thrown next to him. Both Kid and Luffy swore payback against Kaidou before they noticed each other. A few days later, both of them were competing over who could do more work at the mine. Dobon then confronted the two over the amount of kibi dango rations they acquired. He prepared to discipline them by putting them both into his hippo's mouth. However, Kid and Luffy quickly knocked out Dobon and his hippo.
Later, Kid overheard Caribou telling Luffy a rumor about how Kid's arm got cut off, and he interjected to correct the story. Kid and Luffy then argued over which one of them would take down Kaidou. At a later point, Kid somehow escaped from the prisoner mine.
Kid later spotted Killer being escorted to the Prisoner Mines. He attempted to attack the escort only to be subdued and recaptured. After returning to the prison, Kid questioned Killer on what Kaidou had done to him and the fate of their crew, but Killer could not answer through his laughter and tears. Queen then subjugated them both to water torture and threatened to keep them submerged until Luffy and Hyogoro die in the Sumo Inferno. When Big Mom was swinging Queen around, Kid and Killer were saved from drowning when Queen crashed into the contraption holding them and knocked them out of the water.
As Luffy and his allies from the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance were fighting against the Beasts Pirates, Raizo tossed some keys to Kid and Killer so they could release themselves. Kid sat there and watched as the chaos unfolded. After the prison takeover was complete, Luffy offered Kid an alliance to defeat Kaidou. Kid rejected Luffy's offer, feeling betrayed by Apoo and Hawkins. He then took Killer with him and left the Prisoner Mines to find his other crewmates.
On the day of the Fire Festival, the Kid Pirates joined the Straw Hats and Heart Pirates in battling the Beasts Pirates' ships at Tokage Port. According to Kid, he met many ships and samurais on the other port that he found it difficult to set sail. After rescuing Kin'emon's group, Kid and his crew were shocked to hear that Kaidou had formed an alliance with the Big Mom Pirates. Undeterred, Kid, Law, and Luffy destroyed a Beasts Pirates' ship together. While dealing with the last enemy ship, he was surprised to see Jinbe's arrival and learned about the fish-man's joining with the Straw Hats.
When the Straw Hats took over the port in front of Onigashima, Kid once again promised to be the one who would defeat Kaidou. After disembarking on Onigashima, the Kid Pirates received Beasts Pirates disguises from Kin'emon. As the alliance began their raid, the Kid Pirates went ahead of the Straw Hats, with Luffy and Zoro following after them.
While sneaking through Skull Dome's Live Floor, Kid was surprised when Luffy and Zoro began causing a commotion. At first, he tried to ignore them in order to not bring unwanted attention to himself and his crew, but when he spotted Apoo, Kid decided to start fighting as well. As Apoo was distracted with attacking the two Straw Hats, Kid attacked Apoo for revenge. Apoo quickly recovered and retaliated, forcing Kid back. The situation became more chaotic as Hatcha, one of the Numbers, entered the fray. As Kid, Killer, Luffy, and Zoro ran to the castle, they were able to defend against Apoo's next attack by covering their ears.
Inside the castle, Kid and Killer got separated from their allies and found themselves fighting against several Gifters. As the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance began their all-out war on the Beasts Pirates, Kid and Killer were aided by some of the rebels. In preparation for the fight with Kaidou, Kid began using his magnetic powers to collect all the loose metallic objects on his way to the roof. As Kid and Killer reached the third level of the castle, the pile of metal had grown to fill the whole corridor.
The two later reached the roof, where they were soon joined by Law, Zoro, and Luffy as they prepared to fight against Kaidou and Big Mom. Kid was briefly surprised when he saw Luffy hurt Kaidou. After Law sent the Red Scabbards and Izou to safety, Kid scoffed at the Surgeon of Death for being subservient to Luffy (since Law only acted after Luffy asked) though Law insisted that he planned to help them either way. When Luffy challenged Kid and Law to a game of chicken in the face of Big Mom's attack, the two initially refused. However, after a small taunt from the Straw Hat captain, the two took up his challenge, with all of them ending up taking the full brunt of the attack. They quickly recovered, and the five members of the Worst Generation took a strike at Kaidou. However, Kaidou transformed into his dragon form and joined Big Mom in the sky, preparing to battle.
Kaidou used a roar to unleash wind blades at his opponents. Kid's metal golem armor was struck but Kid remained unharmed. With his metal armor, Kid grabbed Kaidou and slammed him into the roof. Later, Big Mom unleashed a lightning storm at the five Supernovas. Kid managed to block some of her thunderbolts but was caught off guard by a lightning homie. After Luffy pummeled Kaidou with Gomu Gomu no Kong Gatling, Kid and Killer tried to continue on the offensive, but Kaidou stopped them by creating some twisters. Zoro managed to slice through Kaidou's scales, but Kaidou responded by launching wind blades at the five Supernovas.
Kid and the other Supernovas eventually agreed that they had to split up Big Mom and Kaidou somehow, otherwise they had no chance of winning. After surviving a combined attack from both Emperors thanks to Zoro's effort, Kid and Law elaborated a plan to separate Big Mom's special homies from her person. Kid used his powers to form a metal box so Law could teleport Zeus inside, while Zoro and Killer dealt with Prometheus and Napoleon respectively. Once Big Mom was fully disarmed, Kid shot metal spears at Big Mom, but was punched down into the ground by the Emperor in return. He, however, took the opportunity to grip Big Mom's arm with his own prosthetic arm, allowing him to Repel her up in the sky, from where Law managed to hit her with a boulder, throwing her off Onigashima.
Once Prometheus and Napoleon left Onigashima to rescue Big Mom, Kid and Killer followed after them to the edge of the island. There, Kid noticed something strange happening to the clouds in the sky. It turned out to be Big Mom creating a new homie, Hera, whose power she tested out on Kid and Killer as she headed back to Onigashima on Prometheus. Kid and Killer tried to avoid the way of Big Mom's Fulgora attack, but were hit and sent flying back inside the Skull Dome, in the third floor of Kaidou's Castle. Kid and Killer survived with few injuries and noticed that Big Mom was searching for them somewhere in the floor below. Kid ran off after her, but was stopped by Hawkins, his former ally and whom Kid considered a traitor. Killer told Kid to keep going while he stayed behind to keep Hawkins busy, which Kid complied.
Once Kid reached the second floor, he noticed some of Kaidou's grunts alerting each other about Big Mom's location and headed towards the ruckus. Kid eventually found Big Mom as she was about to strike down Nami, Usopp and Tama, using his Punk Gibson technique to block Big Mom's sword and then slam her down to the floor. Kid told the Straw Hats to leave Big Mom to him, as the latter recovered herself from the attack. As Kid fought Big Mom, Bao Huang announced that Luffy had died against Kaidou. Kid professed indifference to Luffy's fate, but smiled when Momonosuke confirmed the opposite in an announcement of his own.
Shortly after, Law made his way to the site of Kid's fight with Big Mom and proposed a temporary alliance with Kid to hold the Emperor back together. During the fight, Kid was thrown off when he suddenly started receiving injuries and feeling pain thanks to Hawkins' interference (who was fighting Killer in the floor above and using Kid's life to protect himself), allowing Big Mom to take advantage of the situation and strike Kid down. Killer eventually defeated Hawkins, disrupting the link between the latter and Kid, who got up ready to try Big Mom once more.
Not finding any progress in causing major damage to Big Mom, Kid convinced Law to try utilizing their awakenings in order to change the tide of the fight. Kid was caught by a lightning blast from Big Mom that sent him back to the the Live Floor in a freefall, with the Emperor following after Kid in order to finish him off in midair. Law, however, took the opportunity to activate his awakening and strike Big Mom from behind with Shock Wille, significantly injuring and distracting her long enough for Kid to initiate his own awakening and use Punk Clash to bury the Emperor underneath a multitude of steel beams ripped out from the framework of Kaido's Castle.
This was, however, not sufficient to finish Big Mom off. Now truly angered, the Emperor stole the souls of several of Kaido's minions in the Live Floor to power up her own special Homies and create new ones from the steel beams that previously crushed her. Having acknowledged Kid and Law's power, Big Mom sacrificed one year from her own lifespan in order to grow in size and power, all while daring the Worst Generation pirates to try and take her down. Not intimidated by Big Mom's new form, Kid declared that he would take the Emperor down no matter the cost.
Soon thereafter, Big Mom once again regained the upper hand, beating them up while mocking them about their crew's pleas to spare their lives. After Big Mom punished their crews for pleading to her, she started to make her move towards the roof, viewing their fight as over. This would, however, give Law an advantage, as he was not defeated yet and exploited her ascension towards the roof, coating Kikoku with K-Room and stabbing her from right arm up to her face. He then unleashed Shock Wille onto her again, noticing she could not have been unharmed by this attack before. Right before he was about to be attacked by her newly created steel homies, they were attached towards Kid, who also rose up. After assimilating both the homies and surrounding metal, he confidently told Big Mom that nothing was impervious to damage before charging at Big Mom with Punk Corna Dio, ramming her into a wall. Both then once again assured Big Mom that they would not let her reach the roof, even if they died in the battle.
Kid then started arguing with Law as Big Mom recovered from their attacks. Law told Kid to prepare himself as the former would spend his last remaining stamina in a final attack. Kid took the opportunity to attack Big Mom once more, sticking her to one of the Live Floor's towers through his awakening. Big Mom, however, countered his maneuver and summoned a new homie, Misery, to burn Kid down. Kid was able to able to survive the attack and observed as Law pulled his final move. Taking advantage of the hole Law had produced with his awakening, Kid created an enormous railgun and fired a powerful projectile directly on Big Mom's stomach.
That, however, was not enough to finish off Big Mom, who activated her Soul Pocus in order to steal the souls of Kid and Law's crewmates. The technique, however, ended up being ineffective on both captains, who held no fear towards the Emperor. They then proceeded to silence and launch Big Mom out of Onigashima and directly into the crater Law had formed beforehand. With Big Mom falling victim to an explosion down below, a massively spent Kid and Law were heavily celebrated by their crews for the win.
With only Luffy's fight left to finish, Kid waited for the battle to conclude, considering the possibility of Kaidou emerging as the winner. Once Kaidou descended from the rooftop and announced his victory over the Straw Hat captain, Kid lamented the outcome, but also declared that he would not go down without a fight as he prepared himself for combat once more. He was targeted by Kaidou's forces, but his crew protected him.
Kid then noticed that Luffy was still alive through his Kenbunshoku and, after that, witnessed a gigantic arm descending from the ceiling and pulling Kaidou back to the rooftop, much to his shock. He also saw the samurai resigning themselves to a possible death, but kept waiting for the final outcome of the fight  and rejoiced alongside Killer when Kaidou's defeat was finally confirmed.
After a week, Kid and his crew oversaw the repairs of the Victoria Punk, Thousand Sunny and Polar Tang alongside Usopp, Franky and the Heart Pirates, with Kid trying to disencourage his subordinates from getting too friendly with the Straw Hats. Apoo then arrived with a newspaper showing Kid's new bounty as well as the new members of the Four Emperors. Angry about the contents of the paper, Kid rushed to the Flower Capital to confront Luffy about the news, but ended up forced into taking part in the festival's fireworks showcase against his will. Brushing off Luffy's attempts to socialize with him, Kid then showed the Straw Hat Captain the article about the new status the latter had been branded with.

Anime and Manga Differences
When Kid, Law, and their respective crews encountered a Pacifista, it is currently not specified whether this one was Kuma or not in the manga and are left with a cliffhanger. In the anime, this one was a regular Pacifista and the pirates were given some scenes fighting it. When it seemed that they defeated the Pacifista, it got back up and resumed its attack, essentially leaving the same cliffhanger as in the manga.
Translation and Dub Issues
Even though the correct romanization for his name was shown in his introduction, the "d" in "Kid" was cut off, leading many people to believe that there was more of his name, and used "Kidd" for his name, basing it on the pirate William Kidd, the confirmed basis for the name. Eventually, in Chapter 594, it was confirmed to be "Kid".

However, unlike Shanks, Kid's scars are more extreme, stretching down his chest, and he has also obtained a prosthetic replacement for his missing arm, while Shanks appears to have done nothing to fix his handicap. Fittingly, it was in battle with the Red Hair Pirates that Kid sustained his injuries.
