One Piece Chapter 1048 Spoilers Teases Kaido's Fire Dragon Form

The chapter will come out next week.

May 2, 2022

One Piece manga is still a few days away from getting Chapter 1048, but some spoilers of the next chapter have surfaced online. So, we have a brief idea of what to expect from the upcoming chapter.

Eiichiro Oda has given us some of the most remarkable One Piece chapters in 2022 so far. The community still can’t stop thinking about Luffy’s Gear 5 and the abilities that come with this new level. The Straw Hat Pirates captain isn’t ready to give up against Kaido just yet. Luffy has unleashed his giant form to defeat his opponent; he even used lightning in the fight, which was a topic of discussion for the community for several weeks. Then, in the previous chapter, Luffy created a fist that was big enough to destroy the entire island. Luffy’s fist isn’t far away from reaching Kaido, but there’s one little problem.


Apparently, Luffy is ready to punch Kaido right through Onigashima. So, the attack could very well destroy the island, killing several people on it. Luffy is very well aware of the situation, so he asks Momonosuke to move the island away. However, Momo isn’t sure if he can do what Luffy is asking.

Spoilers of One Piece Chapter 1048 are out

We’ll have to wait a few more days to get some detailed spoilers for the next One Piece chapter. However, some early leaks regarding chapter 1048 surfaced on the internet. These spoilers state that Momonosuke will keep pushing Onigashima to prevent Luffy’s attack from destroying the island.

Also, it looks like that Kaido will survive Luffy’s new attack, as the ruler of the seas will reveal his new “Fire Dragon” form. In his new form, Kaido will melt Onigashima’s horn simply by touching it. To continue fighting, Luffy will launch his new attack called “Monkey God Gun,” and Kaido will reply with his “Shoryu: Kaen Hakke.”

Interestingly, the next chapter’s cover confirms that Ichiji and Reiju are intruders. Similar to the previous chapter, we’ll see small flashbacks in Ch 1048 around Momo. The flashback will take us 20 years back to when Kaido first learns about Oden’s son. The Wanokuni Daimyo band members who met Yamato in the cave will fight against Kaido and Orochi, but they’ll get defeated. After this, the entire country will fall apart.

Talking about Momonosuke, Oden’s son will try to create some fire clouds in the present. Finally, the spoilers also reveal that Denjiro, one of the former Nine Red Scabbards, will return in Chapter 1048. It will begin with Orochi still being on fire, and Denjiro will chop off Orochi’s head, which is definitely surprising for fans.

Of course, this doesn’t confirm if Orochi will actually die in the next chapter, but it would definitely be interesting to see Denjiro back in the manga after almost a year. Finally, the chapter ends with Luffy and Kaido getting ready to face each other’s attack.

So, these are the only One Piece Chapter 1048 spoilers that have appeared as of yet. Of course, these leaks don’t give us the whole experience of the chapter, so make sure to read the next installment when it officially releases this week.
