During the second nine tails attack on the leaf village, a young Kaido was separated from his parents who guided others to safety. The explosions and debris winded up being the reason for this separation and he was knocked out by the impending chaos around him which led to him drifting in and out of consciousness. The young boy awoke with a severe case of amnesia due to the blow he sustained during the fox’s rampage on the village and had no memory prior to waking up to where he was now.
Kaido has always been a difficult person to discern due to him always exercising great control over his expressions, emotions, and thoughts. Even as a child, he was incredibly flippant and mouth off to anyone. Making a joke out of everyone and everything to better help his mind cope with the lifestyle he was forced to live. This caused him to always sleep with his sword or weapons near him to be ready at a seconds notice. He made friends later on but due to his experience had little trust in them believing they would kill him at a minutes notice until later in his life.
Afterward, Kaido became extremely bold and has been shown in his pursuit of women he often flirts with using his looks and words to sweep women off their feet. Yet in turn Kaido still can be completely dense toward women being that he has no examples of a functional relationship in his life at that point. Kaido has adopted a somewhat true neutral lifestyle where he often does what best benefits the situation, claiming he is neither good nor evil. Another predominant trait about him is his lack of seriousness, Kaido has often made jokes out of the bleakest situations or circumstances always looking on the brighter side of things, he has become extremely optimistic and recommends people enjoy the finer things in life. Even when on Hokage Missions of the highest classification and importance, he only appears to be slightly more serious.
Kaido has shown to be as a skilled master in the art of wordplay and gift of gab. Using complex words and showing how the tongue can be sharper than any blade, frequently outmaneuver enemies with his words alone without ever having to use physical combat as a deterrent. Contrary to belief behind Kaido's easy going nature is a calculative, shrewd, and extremely cunning man. Often raising the question of whether Kaido acts the way he does by design or if that is him naturally. Though he can mouth off he never says more than he has to and always keep a calm but confident demeanor. Always giving off the impression makes it seems like he is prepared or always in control. Kaido often downplays the events of his past greatly softly stating he lived a "colorful childhood" or is from a colorful background. Mostly Kaido discloses info that has no place in the current conversation unless it is relevant to the topic at hand.
Despite his mostly neutral disposition, he can be a great ally or powerful enemy depending on the situation. However, he is always looking got for the next good time, which often comes at the expense of his enemies. He does, however, keep his word when he gives. He never answers questions directly he instead, talks around them using his gifted power of verbiage to hint the illusion he answered a question he has shown in gathering information as he learned in conversation people inadvertently give out more info than they needed to but don't realize it, something that has made Kaido an expert tracker. Kaido's antics and propensity for fighting have turned him away from the Path of the Sage. Instead, he was taken the mantle as being deemed as the Last Shadow. It has been noted many times that Kaido's natural alignment has been that of a true neutral with more of a personal touch. This has made gauging Kaido's actions and decisions increasingly difficult, he often states that he does things based on what best fits the situation, but because Kaido rarely discusses his intentions it makes outside influences trust in him shakily.
Kaido though willing to help out a friend often does not meddle or show much interest in the affairs of the shinobi world unless it pertains to his Hokage trials, or affects him personally. Has will always admit while he does help out there is always something he looks to gain behind the scenes for his involvement and usually carefully weighs the Costs and rewards of his actions before he takes them. Kaido often stresses that he has zero loyalty to villages and nations but rather to those he knows personally within them. This reason for Kaido's on the fence attitude has often earned him the name Wildcard due to his prior actions and motivations to wind up sometimes being perceived as the hero but sometimes the villain.
Before his capture by Orochimaru Kaido was considered above average by Uchiha standards he exhibited great versatility. At a young age, Kaido showed a great aptitude for understanding and learning. However after multiple years of being subjected to Project:Rebirth and the constant test and procedures that were run on him Kaido became far stronger than any child at his age. Orochimaru himself even stated the boy exhibited unnatural increases in speed and strength. Kaido's physical energy and vitality skyrocketed from the experiments though he often felt pain early on as he was still adjusting to learning how to contain his new powerful chakra within his body. Orochimaru spliced the DNA of Hashirama Senju and in order to force an evolution of the Rinnegan to produce from his body which failed. Kabuto years later after Orochimaru's fall spliced Madara Uchiha's DNA within him. After Kaido greatly excelled beyond all of the challenges that were hand picked by Orochimaru, he even was able to take out full-fledged shinobi and managed to kill them per Orochimaru's test requirements. Another reason for his high growth rate was the plethora of challenges Orochimaru placed him during field testing. Kaido was made to fight various other experiments in conditions that were warranted to life and death. Should Kaido fail he would be killed during the test. Should he win he would be granted the gift of life for yet another day. The conditions of these challenges kept Kaido physical prowess sharp molding him into an adaptive, powerful killing warrior before he even became a teen.
As he got older his versatility in combat and ability to turn any situation into his favor made him a very sought out man to fight. His battle skills transcended him to the upper echelon of the Ninja world. His rise to fame originated from the fact he would fight and create elaborate tactics along the way, outsmarting his opponents rather than overpowering them when he may have been able to. Due to his great hunger for knowledge and discovering the secrets behind the Rinnegan, he gained access and knowledge of the Naraka Realm to which he could not leave without understanding the cycle of reincarnation. For a time his lack of seriousness was the anchor that held him back but eventually he would become enlightened and unlock the secrets to Rinnegan.
Kaido is often dubbed as the greatest adaptive fighter within the shinobi world. Kaido is without a doubt extraordinarily powerful but due to his approach to battle Kaido has never been seen fighting serious or using his full power. Making it virtually impossible to fully measure how powerful Kaido actually is. Due to this his powers often go overestimated or underestimated. Though those who have seen his combat prowess say Kaido is far more skilled and powerful than he lets on and allows his opponents to get a false reading on him on by design. This also causes his enemies to believe that he is not taking them serious or as a joke which more often than not is usually right
Though he was very much behind in society he quickly adapted to learning how he should act and operate within the world around him.

Kaido frequently outmaneuvered enemies with his words but would not turn down a battle if he was interested enough.

Kaido succeeded and experienced little emotional conflict as he fought and won most challenges with little no to no difficulty. The drive to win the gift freedom often keeping him focused and his eyes on the prize. As time went forward and he understood this gift of freedom was just the gift to live to see the end of the day, the emotions he once held back slowly broke through the surface of an exterior he attempted to hide. However during the challenges where he was pushed close to death is when he began to exhibit signs and unlocked his Sharingan.
Though Kaido only wields the Sharingan in its base mature form. Kaido is highly advanced in making the most of its natural capabilities and implementing them in battle.
