Kaido plans to move his base to the Flower Capital, transform Wano into a pirate nation rechristened as New Onigashima, and have his "son", Yamato, replace Kurozumi Orochi as shogun. All citizens of Wano, including those of the capital, would be converted into slavery in order to provide additional labor for further industrialization of the country. Kaido, together with Big Mom, also plan to find the Ancient Weapons and One Piece, starting the "final war" against the World Government and its new power.
Kaido announced this project during the annual Fire Festival held at Onigashima as Kozuki Momonosuke was about to be executed. As Orochi objected to the declaration of his territory being annexed, which is a violation of the terms of their alliance, Kaido swiftly beheaded him, effectively ending their twenty-five years of partnership. Kaido then threatened Orochi's subordinates, offering them a chance to join the Beasts Pirates or risk being punished with death, which they quickly swore loyalty to Kaido.
