One Piece: Meaning Of All Devil Fruits In The Anime Series
Be it Monkey. D. Luffy, Robin, Buggy, or Portgas D. Ace, the abilities of every Devil Fruit made sure to leave anime fans stunned. Yes, one of the primary reasons for the success of One Piece, Devil-Fruit powers, has ensured that every anime spectator should ditch watching their favourite anime and switch to One Piece.
Every Devil Fruit has unique, mysterious abilities that grant special powers to its users; note: To be its user, you must consume it first. Eating Devil Fruits takes away the ability to swim from the user; this is what it costs to be a devil fruit user.
In the adventurous journey of One-Piece, we saw several types of Devil Fruit powers divided into three types; yes, you read it right. The Devil Fruit’s powers are divided into three main types, i.e. Paramecia, Zoan and Logia. We will dig deep into these three kinds further in the article.
Devil Fruits In The One Piece Anime Series
Paramecia Devil Fruits:
Paramecia Devil Fruits have the ability to grant various superhuman abilities to the characters. These abilities can be from manipulating the user’s body to affecting the surrounding environment.
For example, paramecia devil fruits like Gomu Gomu no Mi (Gomu Gomu Fruit), which was eaten by Monkey D. Luffy gave him the superpower to stretch his body like rubber.
Similarly, Bara Bara no Mi (Chop Chop Fruit) was eaten by Buggy, allowing him to break down his body into pieces at will.
Mera Mera no Mi (Flame Flame Fruit) gave Portgas D. Ace the ability to create, control, and transform into fire.
Zoan Devil Fruits:
The Zoan Devil Fruits in One Piece give the users the ability to transform into different animal forms. Besides, the users can also transform into hybrid combinations of their human and animal forms. The Zoan Devil fruit gives enhanced physical abilities.
For example we saw Tony Tony Chopper consume the Hito Hito no Mi (Human Human Fruit) which enabled him to transform into various forms of human and reindeer. Similarly, the Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Wolf (Dog Dog Fruit, Model: Wolf) consumed by Jabra, that allowed him to transform into a full wolf or a wolf-human hybrid.
Logia Devil Fruits:
Logia Devil Fruits grants the users the power to create, control, and transform into a specific element or substance. This effectively makes them intangible and almost immune to normal physical attacks.
For examples, the Moku Moku no Mi (Smoke Smoke Fruit) gave Smoker,the power to transform into and control smoke. And who can forget Goro Goro no Mi (Rumble Rumble Fruit) that was Eaten by Enel, granting him control over electricity and lightning.
These Devil Fruits play a considerable role in the world of One Piece anime series. Almost all characters seek these fruits for their unique powers. However, once a character consumes a Devil Fruit, they tend to lose the ability to swim and become susceptible to drowning. This is the only drawback of these Devil Fruits. In the series, there is a connection between the hunt for the ultimate treasure, the “One Piece,” and the puzzles involving the Devil Fruits and the Grand Line.
