It can't be personal, Pirate King title isn't going to change just to make it more personal or special title, it's merely a title to indicate who an individual that's distinct from the rest is. Just the title alone is special.One reason I think Kaido got a different title is that it seems more personal. What I mean is that if Kaido got the title of WSM, it wouldn't seem as special seeing as WB already had it. While his current title is unique to him, and suits him more imo.
Another option is that he did in fact have this same title before WB died, and it still held true after WB died of him being the strongest non-human. While being the strongest individual as well.
The main reason I believe Kaido is currently the strongest though is that apparently the Japanese word they use for "creature" apparently also means living thing/organism, which would include humans as well. Which is why I think he got the title after WB died.
And the word Creature is descriptive, it's not quantitative.
If I asked you what kind of Creature you were, you'd say Human.
How do you identify the creature "Human"?
- They have hair
- They walk on 2 legs.
- Greatest level of intelligence.
- Can't breathe under water.
- Among many other common feature.
That's simply all Creature refers to, it's not referring to anyone specifically.
In fact, Arlong has made mention of this, he said Humans are inferior to Fishmen despite the fact that people like Mihawk, Shanks and Whitebeard exist, it's still true nonetheless, why? Humans are naturally weaker than Fishmen, their teeth don't grow stronger after breaking, they can't breathe under water among many other flaws.
In fact, type fastest Creature on Land/ fastest Animal on Land/ fastest Species on Land, and you'll get the same answer: Cheetah. And not the Cheetah called Stephen, it's just a generalization.
So, when we're told Kaido is the strongest creature, it's a generalizatoin. Creture is never a word that identifies an individual, but the entirety.
