Kaioku vs. Chougaryuu

Both Kai Oku and Chou Ga Ryuu have almost similar stats when compared to each other. The only thing that’s separating both of them is the experience that they possess on the battlefield.

If we consider a situation for Kaioku vs Chougaryuu in a battle with their armies, we can be sure that Chou Ga Ryuu will easily win this. However, if we only consider a 1v1 strategic battle between Kaioku vs Chougaryuu, we can expect Kaikoku to take the win.

Kaioku indeed has fewer feats and achievements when compared to Chou Ga Ryuu. But, his strategic skills are even recognized by Shou Hei Kun, and Kai Oku is also a lecturer at the Strategist Academy.

Chou Ga Ryuu had a lot of feats to his name, but he was still easily defeated in his battle against Shin. Chou Ga Ryuu had to face off against Shin in a 1v1, and he could only hold off against Shin for a few moments.

1) Based on Intelligence

This is a tie for both of them. Both Kai Oku and Chou Ga Ryuu have a 93/100 stat when it comes to intelligence. This shows that neither of them is above the other when it comes to a battle of wits and intelligence.

2) Based on Leadership Skills

Kai Oku had proven to be a better leader, even when mostly he was teaching students at the Strategic Academy in Qin. It only took him a single event in a war, to show off his leadership skills.

Chou Ga Ryuu does have a good amount of leadership skills too, which was shown numerous times, but he still falls short of Kai Oku in the statistics, when it comes to leadership skills.

3) Based on Experience

This is a win for Chou Ga Ryuu. Chou Ga Ryuu faced more opponents, waged more wars, and had more tactical showdowns compared to Kai Oku. Chou Ga Ryuu being the deputy of Rin Shou Jo, also helped him a lot in this aspect.

Kai Oku’s strategical mind suffers a bit, due to the lack of experience. Despite being a famed lecturer at the Strategist Academy, he has never had experience in war and battles, barring for one time.

4) Based on Loyalty 

This is a win for Kai Oku. We saw the measures Kai Oku took to convince the King of Han. In this recent arc, we also saw how desperate he was, to complete Shou Hei Kun’s mission of bringing Kanpishi to Qin.

Chou Ga Ryuu also has unwavering loyalty to Rin Shou Jo, but that couldn’t save his master or himself from death. It is also said that Kai Oku has 99/100 loyalty to Shou Hei Kun.

5) Based on Overall Ability

Coming to an overall comparison of Kaioku vs Chougaryuu, we can say that Kaioku wins over Chougaryuu. Kai Oku is a very capable man, and the only problem about him, is we know a bit less about him.

Indeed, he doesn’t have feats like Chou Ga Ryuu does, but Kai Oku can still hold off on his own. Despite being evenly matched in many areas, Kai Oku has not participated in wars much, compared to Chou Ga Ryuu.
