Hundred Beast or Beasts

Can you change the name of this article to the "Hundred Beast Pirates", since that's this crew's actually? Alpha Omega Plus (talk) 17:42, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

Where did the "Beasts Pirates" come from?

Is the name of his crew the same as his epithet? KingCannon (talk) 18:26, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

It's definitely hundred beasts. (Shadoguardian (talk) 18:52, November 27, 2015 (UTC))

Kaido's original epithet is "百獣の王" (literally, King of a Hundred Beasts) but the english translation for that becomes simply "King of the Beasts" because that's essentially what it means. I still think we should use include the hundred in his crew name though. JapaneseOPfan :: Talk 19:16, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

What it matters is what's written in the infoboxes, not Kaido's epithet. So what is it? leviathan_89 21:16, 27 November, 2015 (UTC)

Oh my mistake, Kaido is just "Kaido of the Hundred Beasts". His crew is the "Hundred Beast Pirates". JapaneseOPfan :: Talk 21:31, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

Green light to move it then? Aurora[1] | Yes? 21:33, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

Since there is so much debate, and no definite answer to what the translation should be, I think it should remain "Hyakuju Pirates".Mbaruh (talk) 22:14, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

Actually in translations of the chapter 808 the crew name is the "Hundred Beast Pirates". Alpha Omega Plus (talk) 23:22, November 27, 2015 (UTC)

Klobis moved it to "Beasts Pirates", so I locked moving the page. His reasoning seems to be something like this. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 04:24, November 28, 2015 (UTC)

...but as I said before, Kaido's epithet is irrelevant. What it matters is the crew's name in the infoboxes of this chapter, so unless he has anything to say about that, Jopie confirmed it as "Hundred Beast Pirates". leviathan_89 04:29, 28 November, 2015 (UTC)

"Hundred Beast" is the literal translation for both Kaido's epithet and his crew. Just "Beasts" is a more of an idiomatic translation. Which we use is up to us, neither is 100% right or wrong. JapaneseOPfan :: Talk 05:46, November 28, 2015 (UTC)

How about we wait for the official release of this chapter to get a confirmation for the translation of the pirate crew's name? Alpha Omega Plus (talk) 07:42, November 28, 2015 (UTC)

I support "Hundred Beasts Pirates". The meaning gets across well in Kaido's epithet (since lion = "king of the beasts", which is what it was going for) but I think here if we just go with "Beasts Pirates" some meaning is lost and it sounds a bit generic. I doubt anyone will think that it literally means there's a hundred of them. Awaikage Talk 13:24, November 28, 2015 (UTC)

I do think "Beasts Pirates" sounds incomplete. KingCannon (talk) 14:14, November 28, 2015 (UTC)

If I have to choose, I'd prefer "hundred beasts". leviathan_89 17:04, 28 November, 2015 (UTC)

I'd prefer hundred beasts as well. Aurora[1] | Yes? 17:34, November 28, 2015 (UTC)

Would people please stop adding "Hundred" in front of the crew name before this talk is resolved? Yata Talk to me 19:40, November 28, 2015 (UTC)

I've blocked anon edits since they seemed the ones who keep changing stuff. You can also consider blocking the page to admin-level, but probably this discussion is going to be solved soon, so your choice. leviathan_89 19:45, 28 November, 2015 (UTC)

But is it Hundred Beast or Hundred Beasts? Kaido | Remnants of My Broken Sig 21:32, November 28, 2015 (UTC)

Probably plural, since it's "hundred". But hundred beasts can be misleading, since it's implying the crew has one hundred beastly members. Beasts pretty sums it up, since we're using plural, and even VIZ uses "King of the Beasts" for Kaido, not "Hundred Beasts Kaido", which shows they can accurately read up the "Hyakuju" translation, and modify it to suit their needs. Yata Talk to me 22:18, November 28, 2015 (UTC)

Hundred can also mean a large amount of stuff without specifying quantity.

"Hundreds of people".KingCannon (talk) 02:07, November 29, 2015 (UTC)

How bout somebody ask Oda, the author himself what it should be instead of deciding what we think it should be. The manga chapter released says "Hundred Beast Pirates" not Beasts Pirates. It's not really up for debate. But again, maybe someone should ask Oda. 06:15, November 29, 2015 (UTC)A Wikia Contributor

I'd say Hundred Beasts sounds better. Beasts Pirates sounds a bit awkward and doesn't convey as much meaning as Hundred Beasts. And AWC, the manga chapter said Hyakujū and we're trying to decide whether to translate it literally or idiomatically. The issue isn't what the name is, but how we should translate it for the wiki. Videogamep Talk 07:56, November 29, 2015 (UTC)

If we translate it literally, then Kaido's title would also have to change. Chidoriashi Hash is idiomatically meaning "Drunken Staggering Hash", but putting it literally, it means "Thousand Birds Leg Hash". Yata Talk to me 09:53, November 29, 2015 (UTC)

No it wouldn't. We can choose the best fitting translation case-by-case here. Kaido's title works perfectly as is because it's based on a term used to refer to the lion in real life: "hyakujū no ō", the english equivalent of which is "king of the beasts". Awaikage Talk 12:14, November 29, 2015 (UTC)

There's also an option of using the literal translation (Hundred Beast[s]) but then explaining that it doesn't necessarily mean actually 100 beasts but rather "all kinds of beasts" within the article. JapaneseOPfan :: Talk 04:52, November 30, 2015 (UTC)

Well, all kinds of beasts is a more satisfying and accurate description of the crew. Yata Talk to me 05:44, November 30, 2015 (UTC)

Can someone add the Viz name? It's the Animal Kingdom Pirates. 20:12, November 30, 2015 (UTC)

Okay, VIZ just put a massive out-of-place in translations. Yata Talk to me 02:25, December 1, 2015 (UTC)

It's definitely Hundred Beasts. Hyakujū literally translates to Hundred Beasts. It's the same as Redhaired Shanks's crew. It's named after Kaido's epithet, unless you think it's not Hundred Beast Kaido, Kaido of the Hundred Beasts, but Beast Kaido, or Kaido of the Beasts? Kambetal1 (talk) 09:02, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

Seems to me like JOP's most recent post has the best option: Hundred Beasts, with an explanation in the article. I think there's enough posts to say Hundred Beasts by now. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 17:27, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

Yep, closing this and renaming. The explanation thing is obvious since we do that for Kaido as well. Awaikage Talk 20:36, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

Don't be ridiculous. What is Talk page decision? How foolish the "Hyakuju = Hundred Beasts" theory is. You must say kaizoku = 海+賊 = sea thief so it is Hundred Beasts Sea Thieves. --Klobis (talk) 07:04, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

"kaizoku" is a term, and terms have direct translations. "hyakuju no o" is an idiom. Idioms are more open to interpretation, and are subject to contain puns or concepts that can become lost in translation. We have a proper explaination within the article, so I think it's fine. JapaneseOPfan :: Talk 15:45, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

Just like Kaizoku, Hyakuju is a term, not an idiom. 【百獣】多くのけもの。すべてのけだもの。(三省堂 大辞林). You say lion is King of Hundred Beasts? This means Luffy is Barley Straw Luffy, Zoro is Sea Thieves Hunt, Nami is Mud Stick Cat. You must insist on Barley Straw Crew, not Straw Hat Crew, since you ignored what the word means. --Klobis (talk) 05:50, December 14, 2015 (UTC)

Ohh, I see your point. So Hyakuju no O is an idiom, but just Hyakuju alone is a term written as "100 beasts" and defined as "many or all beasts", much like how Dorobo is written as "Mud stick" but defined as "burglar". Sorry about that, guys! In that case, "Beasts Pirates" is probably slightly more accurate, even though, unlike Japanese, once the "beasts" is taken out of the "King of Beasts" context in English, it just means "more than one beast" (how many beasts? 2? 3? 80? 50,000?).

In fact, the only real "correct translation" would be "Many Beasts Pirates", "All Beasts Pirates", or even "Hundreds of Beasts Pirates", but I think having that explained within the article is more than enough, since we have a rather unique case here. I actually wouldn't mind Hyakuju Pirates, kind of like how we just left Kuja untranslated, but that might just end up unnecessarily confusing a lot of people, so Beasts Pirates would be my next choice to go along with Kaido's epithet. JapaneseOPfan :: Talk 06:04, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

I support the change back to "Beasts Pirates". Can we please just make sure this section is filled out with all the important information from this discussion? JustSomeDude...  Talk | 15:14, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

Filled. JapaneseOPfan :: Talk 02:08, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

So we're cleared? Beasts Pirates? Yata Talk to me 05:47, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for understanding. Can I move this to Beasts Pirates? --Klobis (talk) 00:34, December 18, 2015 (UTC)

Moved it, now we just need to change all the associate links. Yata Talk to me 00:41, December 18, 2015 (UTC)

Jolly Roger

I'm not sure if anyone's noticed, but in the background of the jolly roger, behind the skull and crossbones, there are two thick outward curving bars. Now, I'm not literate in kanji or katakana, but perhaps those bars, maybe together with the skull and/or crossbones, may form a Japanese character, possibly a word? Can anyone check?(Shadoguardian (talk) 09:08, March 8, 2016 (UTC))

Shogun of Wano

I think it has been said that the "Shogun of Wano" is an ally to Kaido. Shouldn't he appear in the "Allies and Affiliates" part under Crew Members? Or does he need a name reveal first or something? Captain of the Thousand Beasts - Kaidovich9X (talk) 10:15, March 12, 2016 (UTC)

The latter. Aurora[1] | Yes? 10:21, March 12, 2016 (UTC)


Some Pleasures wear helmets with two horns. I think it is a kind of ranking system but that part is speculation. We should change the article.Zeckopacho (talk) 16:16, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

Where is your proof? Kaido King of the Beasts (talk) 16:32, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

Actually, I have tons of them. Pasting them here: Zeckopacho (talk) 17:24, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

Or they could just wear horns because Kaido has horns and it's a thing with his crew. It's speculation and stays off the page.

It's recommended to throw away socks after a year 17:26, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

I don't know this two horns business signify anything if it does at all but in the page it is stated that all pleasures wear one horned hats. It is clearly wrong and should be changed. Zeckopacho (talk) 17:32, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

Only one link works, btw. Aurora[1] | Yes? 17:58, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

Sorry. I thought they were properly pasted. You can still copy-paste the individual links though. They work that way. Zeckopacho (talk) 18:00, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah I see what went wrong now, you pasted a whole bunch of them without spaces inbetween. But it looks like you're right. Anyone else opposes? Aurora[1] | Yes? 18:06, October 25, 2016 (UTC)

So... we are not changing it I guess? Zeckopacho (talk) 02:35, November 10, 2016 (UTC)

All Star vs Disaster

Shouldn't All Star be a section for the members template instead of Disaster? 15:07, October 27, 2018 (UTC)

No because that is not the correct title. SeaTerror (talk) 17:31, October 27, 2018 (UTC)

All-Star is a completely correct title. However we don't know who it applies to besides Jack, or how the Disaster title relates to it. Kaido King of the Beasts (talk) 17:48, October 27, 2018 (UTC)

It's equivalent to calling the best player of a sports team the all star. SeaTerror (talk) 17:56, October 27, 2018 (UTC)

All Star was used in Jack's infobox while Disaster was just stated by Sheepshead though. 20:36, October 27, 2018 (UTC)

Correct, and more accurately, in both chapters 808 and 921, Jack was introduced in his introduction box as Beasts Pirates All-Star (百獣海賊団大看板 Hyakujū Kaizokudan Ōkanban?), similarly how both Sheepshead and Hawkins were introduced as Beasts Pirates Headliner (百獣海賊団真打ち Hyakujū Kaizokudan Shin'uchi?).

What's more interesting is that there's connecting theme behind shin'uchi and ōkanban:

  • 真打ち, Shin'uchi(literally meaning "true hit") is person with highest rank in Rakugo, a traditional Japanese solo performing art.
  • 大看板, Ōkanban(literal meaning "great signboard) is generally first-rate influential performer (theatre, film, etc.), leading star, draw, attraction

Now, while it would be wise to wait for introduction of another "Disaster", it is very lkely that Kaidō's right hand men are both "All-Stars" and "Disasters", former being actual rank and latter being additional nickname.JouXIII (talk)

Trivia - Japanese Threate

As some have already mentioned, Oda seems be developing a theme when it comes the names of certain positions within the crew. I was hoping that someone might be willing to add the below section to the page's trivia, if people think this would be useful. 02:32, January 4, 2019 (UTC)

  • In keeping with the crew’s association with Wano Country, a country inspired by Feudal Japan, many senior positions within the crew take their names from traditional Japanese performing arts or types of theatre.
    • All-Stars take their name from the word Ōkanban (大看板? lit. “large signboard”), which has come to denote a first-rate influential performer or leading star of theatre/film, due to the custom of writing such a person’s name larger than those of other performers on billboards and other signage.
    • Headliner is derived from Shin'uchi (真打? lit. “true hit”), a term used to describe a person of the highest ability or popularity in Rakugo, a traditional Japanese solo performing art.
      • The strongest of the Headliners, the Flying Six, are named after a form of dramatic exit in Kabuki called Roppō (六方? lit. “six directions”) that involves exaggerated movements of the performer’s hands and feet towards north, west, south and east, as well as up and down. Tobiroppō (飛び六方? lit. “flying six directions”) is a particularly famous variation from the play “Kanjinchō” performed by one of the lead characters, the warrior Benkei.

Flying Six

Can I assume from the "Flying Six" that "branches" can go up to more than four?--Rgilbert27 (talk) 20:57, March 10, 2019 (UTC)

What branches? Kaido King of the Beasts (talk) 21:03, March 10, 2019 (UTC)

The "branches" on the Contents table, it's the same problem I had with Relationships.--Rgilbert27 (talk) 21:20, March 10, 2019 (UTC)

Oh, you mean subheaders. Subheaders can go up to five, but need to be four or fewer, otherwise they can't be edited. Kaido King of the Beasts (talk) 21:26, March 10, 2019 (UTC)

Soooo the Flying Six "subheader" is fine?--Rgilbert27 (talk) 21:39, March 10, 2019 (UTC)

Crew Strength

As mentioned in Chapter 943, is Kaido's main goal for the Beasts Pirates to become the strongest pirate crew in the world, or did they already became the strongest pirate crew?Mohammedabri2312 (talk) 10:51, May 24, 2019 (UTC)
