What Happened in One Piece Episode 1077?
In the previous episode, One Piece began with Kaido's defeat as he fell to the ground after Luffy's final attack. Kaido is propelled through the ground and he burrows through the earth and lands in Lava as the show adapts the immense power of Luffy's big final punch. Luffy falls toward the ground as Gear 5 powers down and is caught by Yamato. The people on Onigashima realize Luffy has won and they begin to celebrate as Chopper is overwhelmed by his medic duties.
The episode then shifts to the civilians and focuses on Otoko and Tenguyama as they discuss her father who chose to be captured in order to help Wano gain their freedom in the future. In a flashback, the audience is shown how Otoko consumed a smile fruit and how that began the continuous smile on her face. Her father realizes the situation and opts to eat the fruit to share in the suffering and to console his daughter.
As Wano enters an era without Kaido and Orochi, Momo tells Zunesha not to open the border in order for Wano to rebuild first. The Animal Kingdom continue their fight but an eruption begins undersea and Yamato barges in to stop them. Momonuske then heads towards the civilians and switches from his dragon form to reassure his people that Wano is free and he will lead them. The Akazaya samurai reveal themselves and Denjiro introduces himself as the new shogun and Momonosuke adult form is teased at the end of the episode.
