The One Piece universe is full of powerful pirates and admirals who wield all kinds of special abilities thanks to the Devil Fruits. If you’ve been a long time fan of the manga, then you’d already be familiar with the different kinds of Devil Fruits, categorized as Paramecia, Logia and Zoan, that appear in the story. Some of these fruits bestow ridiculous power to the users, while some of them are hilariously useless and it also depends on the user and how they chose to use it.
The origin of Devil Fruits is a mystery as some believe that they are the reincarnations of the Sea Devils, which is why people with Devil Fruit powers are hated by the oceans. They can’t swim and have their energy sucked by just staying in the ocean water for too long. But that may not be true because of the variety of fruits appearing in the show. In fact in SBS Volume 48, Oda Sensei has clearly said that the workings of the Devil Fruits will be explained once a certain professor makes his appearance in the story! This means that what we know about the Devil Fruits may not be the reality.
For the moment, let’s forget about the origins and the secrets of the fruits and focus on which of them are the strongest Devil Fruits. In this article, we have listed down the strongest fruits based on their destructive capabilities and not just how the user chooses to use them!
The Strongest Devil Fruits in One Piece
13. Mera Mera no Mi
The Mera Mera no Mi is a Logia-type Devil Fruit and first appeared in the story when Ace made his debut. It gives its users the power to turn their body into fire allowing them to perform all kinds of things. The users can shoot flames out of their body making it one of the strongest fruits in the show. Currently, the Sabo is the owner of the Mera Mera no Mi!
12. Ito Ito no Mi
The Ito Ito ni Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to create and manipulate strings. The fruit has been currently eaten by Donquixote Doflamingo and we already know how deadly its powers are. Doflamingo has been shown to use the fruit to its fullest power – from controlling people and their actions, to flying by using strings on the clouds and to create a birdcage on the entire island strong enough to cut through anything in its way.
11. Gomu Gomu no Mi
The Gomu Gomu no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit which is currently eaten by the protagonist of the show, Monkey D. Luffy. The fruit gives the users’ body the properties of rubber, essentially transforming them into rubber human. On surface this doesn’t look that strong, but due to the creativity of Luffy and the moves and attacks that he came up with, the Devil Fruit’s power has increased drastically as he was able to punch and destroy the entire island of Dressrosa. Moreover, the second, third and fourth gears of Luffy are only possible due to the capabilities of his Devil Fruit.
10. Goro Goro no Mi
The Goro Goro no Mi is a Logia-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to create, control and transform into lightning at will. The fruit is eaten by Enel, the former God of Skypiea and is mentioned as one of the strongest Devil Fruits based on its destructive capabilities. Rubber is the only weakness of the fruit and if you think that Haki will be a good defense, then you should consider how Enel passed judgement on people by throwing huge bolts of lightning from far away, so he doesn’t have to be in close range to do so! Even Nico Robin stated that it was one of the few fruits considered to be invincible.
9. Magu Magu no Mi
The Magu Magu no Mi is a Logia-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to create, control and transform into Magma at will. The fruit is eaten by Fleet Admiral Sakazuki and we have already seen its destructive capabilities in action as it was able to transform the weather of half of the island to a blazing inferno. The fruit is naturally stronger than Mera Mera no Mi and has no known weaknesses, other than the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses and Armament Haki.
8. Tori Tori no Mi – Model Phoenix
The Tori Tori no Mi – Model Phoenix is a Mytical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that are immensely powerful and extremely rare. The fruit gives its user the ability to transform into a Phoenix and also grants additional powers like regeneration and blue flames that resembles the properties of Logia fruits. It is currently eaten by Marco and is considered as one of the strongest Devil Fruits thanks to its awesome power!
7. Fujitora’s Devil Fruit (Name Unknown)
The Devil Fruit eaten by Admiral Fujitora has not been named yet, but we all know what it can do. It allows its user to manipulate gravity at a chosen location at will. Fujitora used his power to summon a meteorite to fall from the sky, can pin people to the ground by increasing the gravitational force in that particular area and even use reverse gravity to repel attacks or lift rubble at will.
6. Hito Hito no Mi – Model Daibutsu
The Hito Hito no Mi: Model Daibutsu is a Mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that gives the user the ability to transform into a giant Buddha statue at will. It enhances the combat power of the user to a great deal and also gives the ability to unleash shockwaves to take out or injure a large group of enemies.
5. Ope Ope no Mi
The Ope Ope no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that grants its user the power to create a spherical room in which they have complete control over the placement and the orientation of the objects, and the humans, inside. The fruit is currently eaten by Trafalgar D. Water Law and grants him the power to manipulate humans and objects, perform spatial telekinesis, swap-teleportation, telapathy and even allows him the take out people’s hearts or swap people’s souls as long as they are within his room (or operating area).
The fruit is one of the strongest Devil Fruits in One Piece and the most valuable as well due to its medical properties. It can help the user perform surgeries, cure any kind of illness and even grant eternal youth (immortality) at the expense of the current fruit user’s life.
4. Soru Soru no Mi
The Soru Soru no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to freely interact and manipulate souls at will. The Emperor, Charlotte Linlin is the one who has the ability at the moment. The fruit allows the user to extract a person’s soul from their body, effectively reducing the lifespan of that person. Moreover, it also allows the user to transplant the souls into inanimate objects to give them life and a personality.
3. Pika Pika no Mi
The Pika Pika no Mi is a Logia-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to create, control or transform into light at will. The fruit is currently eaten by Admiral Kizaru and gives him the ability to move at the speed of light, transport himself by means of reflection and use light-based attacks like shooting laser beams from hands, fingers and feet. Moreover, it allows partial transform that enables users to throw physical attacks at light speed causing devastating damage.
2. Yami Yami no Mi
The Yami Yami no Mi is a Logia-type Devil Fruit that grants its user the ability to create, control and transform into darkness at will. The fruit is currently eaten by Marshall D. Teach (or Blackbeard) and is one of the strongest Devil Fruits in One Piece. With the fruit’s power, Blackbeard is able to create a black hole, or a dark vortex, that is capable of sucking in objects, attacks and even humans and destroying them or wounding them to a heavy degree. The most frightening property of the fruit is that its able to completely nullify other Devil Fruit powers.
1. Gura Gura no Mi
The Gura Gura no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to create vibrations or quakes at will. The fruit was eaten by Edward Newgate a.k.a. Whitebeard, but was later stolen by Blackbeard upon his death. The fruit is considered to be one of the strongest, if not the strongest, as it can literally create earthquakes and is strong enough the destroy the entire world.
