Did you see why I said the drinking could be necessary. If we assume that Devil Fruits can "go on a rampage", as we know from chopper, and that Zoans "have a spirit", the key to Zoan awakening, unlike Paramecia awakening, is "emptying the vessel", so to speak. Hence Luffy awakens at near death when his "voice" dies out, and Kaido gets wasted. It's not a "Ohh he's drunk, therefore awakeneing", it's "what does being drunk" and "what does being hit in the head really hard" and "being asleep" have in common?
So Luffy need be almost in near death situation to use G5 awakened power? Are you implying that a Yonkou can´t used awakening without being drunk?
Chopper need his rumble balls because he alone is not strong enough, but here we speak about a Yonkou who has so much knowledge about awakening and yet he can´t awake it on his own without being drunk?
Sry but this sound so nonsense, I get what you try to explain and I understand you point, but a Yonkou should be able to awake on his own without needing extra tools.
As example, why BM didn´t used awakening, she isn´t a zoan? Why Oda skip her awakening too? Both Yonkou who ruling the seas over 20years, who have so much experince and knowledge, simple didn´t used their df awakened power. I rather take a non awakening Kaido then to get a excuse to give Kaido a bad awakened power as what you show with the theory…
Let me ask you simple this question, how many awakened user we know so far?
Nine people knows awakening and how we get the info that they are awakened?
Yeah Oda confirmed it with a statement that these people been awakened df users, he did it for Doflamingo,Jailer Beasts,Katakuri,Luffy,Kid and Law.
So why he didn´t confirmed it for one of the most important characters? It is not like Oda was in hurry, for BM as example, she began her fight with Kid in chapter 1013 and she was defeated in chapter 1040 and you wanna tell me that Oda had never a single time to explain us(the readers) that BM was already using her awakened power?
People saying stuff like:"Oda probably forget that BM using awakening,probably for Kaido too", they make it sound like that Oda didn´t had the time and was in hurry so he forget it but that is kinda a false thought.
He has time for Law and Kid to drop the statement of them using awakening(multiple times) but the opponent who also face them, didn´t had any time to get a awakened df statement too?
Same for Kaido, he even fought like 60chapters, let say we forget all the part and count only the Bulky version vs Luffy, who was shown in chapter 1037 and other chapters, Kaido probably got defeated in 1049, Oda didn´t get anytime to drop a line of Kaido saying that he is also using awakening?
Sorry but that sound bullshit, I doubt that Oda forget to mentioned that Kaido and BM been already awakened, it more like they really been not awakened df user.
Or Oda really try to surprise us soon with revealing their true power(awakened df power). But outside of that it doesn´t make sense for Oda to not reveal Kaido using awakening during 1037-1048, hell Oda even had enough time to Kaido to speak about awakened df power and show his knowledge twice!! But he has not time to reveal that the two Yonkous had awakened df power?
Sorry but the theory sound very bad for me.
