I think he gave him smiles,in exchange of having his allowance to make business in the NW,where the emperors rule.
Law might be Kaido's son and he gave him to Dofla for babby sitting him.. or left law with dofla to the elders we saw playing cards at Dressrosa like how garp left luffy with Ace to Dadaan..... So Kaido might be knowing Dofl's father..... That might be a reason for Law to strike Kaido ,,, He wants answers .... !!! ... or may be want to prove some point..

Please take care not to post spoilers from this weeks chapter. The 24 hour spoiler rule is still in effect, please do not discuss events from chapter 697 outside of the chapter discussion thread until Thursday.
ok,so now we have got it: they are no connected except that kaido is doflamingo's most important customer,in exchange (likely) of letting doflamingo make business in NW (where he would be crushed if he hadn't stuffs to change)
of course, I forgot what SAD is. I keep thinking it makes devil fruit. :\ If that's true, then I stick by with what I said.
And yes, eliminating smiles ensures Kaido can not get stronger. As long as he has access to smiles his army of devil fruit users can continue to grow exponentially. Law's plan has to do more than keep him from getting stronger though, it must also weaken him. Kaido is still a Yonkou, even if he can't get stronger, he's still more than Luffy and Law can handle as things are now. In a sense those who complain about power levels are correct. The Marine needed a war to defeat Whitebeard. The next phases of Law's plan must not only prevent Kaido from becoming stronger, but actively weaken his position. Eliminating allies, seizing territory. Something like that.
Wouldn't it be interesting if smiles only temporarily grant df powers? Maybe unlike real df, the powers are not absorbed into the dna (or w/e), and don't become permanent. Losing Smiles would be a real blow then. Not only could he not increase the size of his army, but without more fruit his troops will lose their powers. Probably not, but it would be an interesting twist.
Do you have other theories about Law weakening Kaidou? I like the idea about Smiles being a temporary power up but even if Kaidou loses his special Zoan corps, he should still be too much for Luffy and Law to handle. Kaidou seems to be a Yonkou for a long time which would mean that even without the Smiles, he had enough power to be in a stalemate with guys like WB or Shanks.
My guess right now is that the Smiles have some kind of switch integrated to them, similar to how Momo reacted to the words "get a hold of yourself", which could turn the Smile users against Kaidou. I think several hundred Zoan users could be a problem, even for Kaidou´s crew.
If smileys are the future, slaves are the past. An slave has to obey no matter what order they are required to follow. Maybe, smileys are the future because smileys users are much more obedient; and in addition their power is increased... It would be like a development in terms of eficiency in the field of having obedient and useful slaves. If that would be the case, Tenryubitos could also be potential buyers of the smiley. ... Nice, imo.
Law and Luffy most likely would have a difficult time handling Kaidou. Not sure if they'd get others to join, but those two beating Kaidou would say a lot about their power as it took Marine and Blackbeard crew to finally end Whitebeard.
I have a feeling Kaido and his officers have real devil fruit powers, some could also be haki users. The smile users could be lower ranking, foot soldiers in his army.

An interesting comment about smiles in this weeks chapter. Law said that as artificial fruit, there are side effects (risks in the Mangarule version). Very interesting. There is going to be more to this than preventing the continued growth of Kaido's army. That, of course, is one goal, and already stated by Law.
If the side effect of the artificial devil fruits allow to weaken Kaidou then there is no point in destroying the SAD and smiles production. I understand it more as a fact that real fruits are still better. I wouldn't be surprised if the risks in question were that you die in half of the case or something similar. But Kaidou doesn't seem to be someone who care much about such facts.
But it's clear that we miss something that would really weaken Kaidou at this stage of the plan.
Destroying SAD would also prevent more devil fruit users in his army as well.
Ultimately Law mentioned that there were side effects for a reason. It wasn't idle chatter, or trivia, but an important point, something that will effect how Kaido's army fights.Quote:
You're exactly right, the point of destroying the SAD facility, and the smile factory, is to prevent Kaido's army from growing even larger. Law's plan has just begun. It's not at the point yet where they can weaken Kaido. Right now they only want to ensure he can not get any stronger.
