Oden was noble and selfless, as he sacrificed himself in order to allow his son and retainers to escape Wano Country.
He had somewhat of a disregard for rules, as he left Wano Country despite that being a crime.
Inuarashi and NekomamushiEdit
As retainers, Inuarashi and Nekomamushi are very loyal to Oden. However, when Momonosuke saw Inuarashi and Nekomamushi, he questioned whether Oden was the reason for their bitterness toward each other. Momonosuke claimed that his father would be saddened if he saw them fighting, a remark that caused the two to reconcile their feud, showing their respect toward his father. Alongside Momonosuke, Kin'emon, Kanjuro and Raizo, they too grieved at the mention of Oden's demise.
Kaido sought the Kozuki Family due to Oden having been to Raftel. Not wanting Kaido to get the information, Oden sacrificed himself to allow the rest of his family to escape. The Beasts Pirates were eager to kill him in sadistic ways.
Abilities and PowersEdit
As a member of the Kozuki Family, Oden possessed the ability to read poneglyphs and was the last member of the family with the skill. As daimyo, Oden had a large amount of power and influence over the area he ruled before his death. Nami deduced that given his position, he must have had a large amount of wealth. He also has the ability to hear the "Voice of All Things".
His clan formed a pact with Inuarashi and Nekomamushi and he traveled the seas together with them. For a time, they traveled on Whitebeard's ship and later with Gol D. Roger's crew on the Oro Jackson. Oden also had been on Raftel with Roger.
