The One Piece universe is filled with 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 show, then you’d already be familiar with the different types of Devil Fruits, categorized as Paramecia, Logia and Zoan.
Some of these fruits bestow ridiculously overpowered abilities to the users, while some of them are hilariously useless but 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. The people who have eaten devil fruits can’t swim and have their energy sucked by just staying in the ocean 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.
That being said, there are some really powerful devil fruits in One Piece, some grant the ability to create earthquakes or black holes while some transform the bodies of their users into various elements like fire, magma, ice, rubber and more and also give them the abilities of said elements! In this article, we will have a look at the strongest and most powerful Devil Fruits introduced in the story so far!
The Strongest Devil Fruits in One Piece (2022)
21. Bari Bari no Mi
The Bari Bari no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit which grants its user the ability to erect a strong barrier that cannot be penetrated once activated. It makes its user a “Barrier Human.”
It was first used by Kurozumi Semimaru, and its current user is Bartolomeo the Cannibal, a super rookie and the captain of the Barto Club who also doubles as the captain of the second ship of the Straw Hat Grand Fleet.
The Bari Bari no Mi ability is activated by crossing fingers together. It has been shown to be indestructible so far, withstanding attacks from individuals like King Elizabello II, Bellamy, and Hack. This devil fruit ranks among the strongest because it is not only used for defense but can also be used in a number of versatile ways depending on the creativity of its user.
20. Gasu Gasu no Mi
The Gasu Gasu no Mi is a Logia type Devil Fruit that allows its user to create, manipulate, and transform into gas at will, making its user a “Gas Human.” The devil fruit’s current user is Caesar Clown.
This devil fruit is on the list of the strongest devil fruits because of the versatile number of ways it can be put to use. In addition to being able to control gas in any location and use it to his advantage, it gives the user the ability to poison their opponents at will without themselves being affected by the poison.
Also, the Gasu Gasu no Mi allows Caesar to remove the oxygen in the atmosphere. This means that while fighting, he can prevent his opponents from breathing and can protect himself from fire combustion simply by taking out the oxygen in the atmosphere.
19. Ito Ito no Mi
The Ito Ito no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that grants its user control over white strings, making the person a “String Human.” It was eaten by one of the former Shichibukai, Donquixote Doflamingo.
The razor sharp strings of the Ito Ito no Mi are advantageous both on offense and defense and are therefore qualified to be among the strongest devil fruits in the One Piece world.
On offense, the strings can be attached to anything from a building to a cloud in the sky, and because the strings are so small, they cannot be detected. This makes it easy for the user, Doflamingo to control people without anyone knowing it is his doing, as was the case with the King of Dressrosa.
On defense, the strings can be used to form a protective wall keeping him shielded from attacks, as well as used to repair any injuries sustained in the course of fighting. Also, the strings can be imbued with Busoshoku Haki, making it easy for the strings to penetrate defense-based devil fruit abilities like Smoker’s Moku Moku no Mi.
18. Mero Mero no Mi
The Mero Mero no Mi is a devil fruit that preys on the lusts of other people. Its current user is Boa Hancock, one of the former Shichibukai, and self-proclaimed lover of Luffy.
The devil fruit preys on human lust and petrifies people who are focused on lusting after Boa Hancock who is said to be the most beautiful woman in the world of One Piece.
The petrification caused by the devil fruit lasts until Hancock decides to undo it. As such, as long as a person lusts after her beauty, and lacks the will power to control their lust, they, irrespective of who they are or how strong they are, are subject to her power. This devil fruit makes true the statement that strength and weakness are of the heart.
17. Gomu Gomu no Mi
The Gomu Gomu no Mi is perhaps the most popular devil fruit in the One piece world because it is currently being used by Monkey D. Luffy, the main protagonist of the show. It is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that gives its user’s body the properties of rubber making it possible for its user to stretch freely and reshape their body as the need arises.
The devil fruit’s abilities are well classed in both offense and defense. Offensively its abilities continue to evolve in every battle. Thanks to the flexibility of the ability and Luffy’s own creative mind, the ability continues to develop new forms with great offensive output, going toe-to-toe with dangerous pirates from all around the world.
Defensively, bullets, cannons, and weapons bounce off his body easily. Also, because the devil fruit is constantly activated unlike most paramecia types, he is always defended. This makes this particular devil fruit one of the strongest!
16. Doku Doku no Mi
The Doku Doku no Mi is a Paramecia-type devil fruit that grants the user control over all kinds of poison while making him resistant to poison as well. It was eaten by Magellan, a warden at Impel Down, the maximum security prison of the marines and one of the strongest villains in the series so far.
This devil fruit is one of the strongest devil fruits in the anime because of the wide range of attacks and effects it grants to its user. From slightly effective poisons to very lethal ones, all are subject to the user’s control, making it easy for Magellan to produce both liquid and gaseous poisons, based on his perception of his opponent’s strength.
“Kinjite” is considered the most powerful poison that can be produced by this ability. In Magellan’s words, the poison has the ability to destroy even Impel Down which is a prison considered to be indestructible and impenetrable.
15. Mera Mera no Mi
The Mera Mera no Mi is another devil fruit made popular by its two users who are both related to Luffy – Portgas D. Ace and Sabo. It is a Logia-type devil fruit considered to be one of the strongest devil fruits in the One Piece world.
This fruit grants the user the ability to control and create flames at will making its destructive offensive power very great. It makes its user a “Flame Human.” In addition, it makes for a very good defensive ability as the user easily turns to fire to avoid physical attacks.
Also, the flames can be used to accelerate the speed of physical attacks in a battle and thereby make their impact a lot stronger than mere direct hits.
14. Nikyu Nikyu no Mi
The Nikyu Nikyu no Mi is a Paramecia-type of devil fruit that grants its user the power to repel everything they touch. It is physically presented as paws on the user’s palm, making the user a “Paw Human.” It was eaten and is used by Bartholomew Kuma.
This devil fruit is strong for its defensive capabilities as it easily allows its user to deflect or redirect any attack coming at him. Also, the ability to repel covers both physical and intangible things like the sensation of pain. Thus, Kuma is able to send shockwaves of pain into his victims’ bodies.
The devil fruit also creates the impression that Kuma is capable of teleportation. However, what it does is that it speeds up the air around him, giving him instantaneous movement.
13. Goro Goro no Mi
The Goro Goro no Mi is a Logia-type devil fruit which gives its user the ability to create, control, and transform into lightning. This literally makes the user a “Kaminari ningen” – a lightning human!
It was eaten by Enel, the main villain of the Skypeia Arc of the One Piece Saga. According to Nico Robin, the powers of the Goro Goro no Mi are so tremendous that it is one of the few devil fruits that can boast of being invincible.
It provides a very strong advantage because most attacks not imbued with Haki pass through the user while the user’s own attacks connect easily with most of his opponents. At the same time, it allows the user travel undetected through conductors of electricity such as a pole or precious metals like gold.
12. Suna Suna no Mi
The Suna Suna no Mi is another devil fruit that showed tremendous potential, especially in the early stages of the anime. It is a Logia-type devil fruit that grants the user control over sand which he can manipulate at will. What makes this devil fruit so dangerous and brings it into the league of the strongest devil fruits is the different ways it can creatively be adapted to battle.
Its user, the former Shichibukai, Crocodile, also known as Mr. 0, showed the abilities of the devil fruit with his ability to cause dryness wherever he went. During a conversation with Sanji, he dried up a flower with ease. Also, while fighting against Luffy, he uses the sand to dry up his insides.
Imagine the potential destruction he can wreck against a group of people when he uses his powers the right way! Scary stuff! Notably, he gets even stronger in the desert!
11. Hie Hie no Mi
The Hie Hie no Mi is another Logia-type devil fruit responsible for the creation of a “Hyōketsu Ningen” – a freezing human being. It was eaten by former Navy Admiral, Aokiji!
Popularly known as Kuzan, Aokiji walks us through the abilities of the devil fruit through his numerous engagements with different people. Notably, although ice is meant to be weak to fire, he fought toe to toe with Admiral Akainu and his Magma abilities for 10 days straight, as well as cancelled out Ace’s fire when they clashed.
Another reason why the Hie Hie no Mi is one of the strongest devil fruits is that it provides a natural solution to the water problem all devil fruit users face. Aokiji doesn’t need to swim to get across water… he simply freezes the water around him and stands on it!
10. Magu Magu no Mi
Every true fan of the One Piece franchise knows and most likely dislikes the Magu Magu no Mi and its user. It is a Logia-type devil fruit that grants its user control over magma, which he can use at will as he pleases. It was eaten by the new Fleet Admiral, Sakazuki, more popularly known as Admiral Akainu.
The Magu Magu no Mi is said to possess one of the strongest offensive powers in the entire One Piece world. Currently, there are no known elemental weaknesses of this devil fruit, and so it is difficult to see how Fleet Admiral Sakazuki can be defeated.
Also, the heat from his magma is so intense that it easily burned past Ace’s Mera Mera no Mi abilities, causing serious damage to Ace even though he was also using a Logia-type devil fruit that should have made him invulnerable to attacks not imbued with Busoshoku Haki.
9. Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix
The Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix is a Mythical Zoan-type devil fruit and another one of the strongest Devil Fruits in the One Piece world!
The Phoenix model of the Tori Tori no Mi grants the user the ability to change into a phoenix or a phoenix hybrid. This fruit is deemed as one of the strongest because of the regenerative abilities it possesses. It is eaten by Marco, the former First Division Commander of the Whitebeard Pirates.
With his blue flames, he regenerates from any damage inflicted, like a phoenix reborn from ashes. He withstood attacks from Admiral Kizaru and even stopped magma-based attacks from Fleet Admiral Sakazuki.
8. Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Daibutsu
The Hito Hito no Mi is a Mythical Zoan-type devil fruit which transforms its user into a Daibutsu, a Giant Buddha. The devil fruit is eaten by the former Fleet Admiral of the Marines, Sengoku.
This ability makes it to the list of the strongest because although Sengoku does not fight much, the few times he does, the impact is tremendous. He successfully injured Luffy’s inflated body with a punch that destroyed the scaffolding on which they were.
Also, he was able to counter the shockwaves created by Blackbeard with an impact wave of his own. This is a laudable feat as Blackbeard was using Whitebeard’s Gura Gura no Mi at the time.
7. Zushi Zushi no Mi
The Zushi Zushi no Mi is a Paramecia-type devil fruit that translates to “Press-Press Fruit,” and it allows the user to create and make use of gravitational forces. Working like gravity, the user can increase or reduce the density of everything around him, including the air, making people fall down under the weight of his energy.
Controlling gravity around him, makes its user, Admiral Fujitora, one of the strongest people in the anime, and by extension, makes the devil fruit one of the most powerful devil fruits. This is easily seen when he uses the wide attack range of his ability to pull down meteors from outer space!
6. Uo Uo no Mi, Model: Seiryu
The Seiryu model of the Uo Uo no Mi is a Mythical Zoan-type devil fruit that grants the user the ability to transform into a hybrid as well as a full version Azure dragon. It was eaten by Kaidou, Governor General of the Beasts Pirates, and one of the Four Emperors ruling over the seas in the New world.
Kaidou has been nicknamed, “The World’s Strongest Creature,” and this is a testament to the strength of this devil fruit. It gives him almost unparalleled strength, making fights with him unfair for his opponents.
In his beast form, he is the largest Zoan type seen so far, and is hardly damaged by attacks from his foes. Only few people have been able to pierce his skin in his dragon form.
5. Ope Ope no Mi
The Ope Ope no Mi is a Paramecia-type devil fruit that allows its user to create a special circumference of air over which he has absolute control. In this “room,” everything is subject to the user’s whims.
It was eaten by Trafalgar D. Law, nicknamed the “Surgeon of Death.” This devil fruit is one of the most powerful devil fruits in One Piece because of the control it gives the user over his opponents.
Using his devil fruit abilities, Law has removed vital organs like the heart or even severed heads from bodies as he deemed fit. Once in possession of his opponent’s organs, their lives are literally in his hands.
4. Soru Soru no Mi
The Soru Soru no Mi is a Paramecia-type devil fruit that allows the user to interact with other human souls. Its current user is Charlotte Linlin, more popularly known as Big Mom and one of the Four Emperors!
This devil fruit is one of the strongest because it not only reacts to the fear of other people, giving Big Mom the ability to steal their life force just because they are afraid of her, but it also gives her the ability to animate things and bring them to life. This means that fighting Big Mom can literally mean fighting the whole world, as every object around her can become her loyal weapon.
3. Pika Pika no Mi
The Pika Pika no Mi is a Logia-type devil fruit which gives its user control over Light. Yes, light! He can turn into light or shoot light beams out of his hands at will. It was eaten by Admiral Kizaru.
One major advantage of this devil fruit is the speed it grants its user. Also, it is intangible to most opponents, making him a difficult enemy to face. The user can also use the devil fruit powers to cause massive explosions and is extremely accurate in his targeting making Kizaru one of the strongest characters in One Piece and Pika Pika no Mi one of the strongest devil fruits!
2. Yami Yami no Mi
The Yami Yami no Mi is one of the most terrifying devil fruits in the world of One Piece. It is a Logia-type of devil fruit that allows its user to create and control darkness as he pleases.
This devil fruit comes at a terrible cost to others. Just like sea water and sea prism stone, it can nullify the abilities of other devil fruit users, giving its user an unfair advantage in every fight he engages in. This is the main reason why Ace lost his battle against Marshall D. Teach, a.k.a. Blackbeard, the current user of the Devil Fruit. Also, it gives its user control of gravity as Blackbeard says that even light cannot escape it.
1. Gura Gura no Mi
The Gura Gura no Mi is perhaps the strongest devil fruit in One Piece as it can literally destroy the entire world. It is a Paramecia-type devil fruit that grants its user the ability to create quakes by punching the air around him.
It was eaten by Edward Newgate, a.k.a. Whitebeard, and after his death, was taken by Marshall D. Teach, a.k.a. Blackbeard, who is currently the only known pirate to have eaten two devil fruits.
In the words of former Fleet Admiral Sengoku, who was deemed to be one of the strongest marine at the time, the devil fruit holds the ability to destroy the world!! That more than anything else is a testament to the strength of the devil fruit. Using it, Whitebeard was able to easily create two tsunamis during the battle at Marineford!
This was the complete list featuring all the powerful devil fruits that we’ve seen so far in One Piece. I made this list based on the destructive capabilities of said devil fruits as well as the creative ways their users make use of these abilities. Earlier, the list was small and didn’t mention all the powerful fruits, so I expanded the list and added more information to make it a list that you’ll love to read.
But, in case you are disappointed because you didn’t see you favorite devil fruit here, then do let me know. I’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions that will help me create an even better list featuring the strongest devil fruits in One Piece!
