Devil fruit is a powerful source of power introduced by Eiichiro Oda in the One Piece series, where many people are trying to get that power. By eating a devil fruit, one will be awarded epic and extraordinary powers. A vivid example of this is Monkey D. Luffy who is the protagonist of the series.
However, even though the devil fruit is able to give tremendous power to those who eat it, it turns out that there is something else that devil fruit can also do, which is to create a new race. There are several devil fruits whose power is able to make the user create a new race. Anything?
Kage Kage No Mi
Gecko Moria is the former ruler of Thriller Bark, and is a former Shichibukai. As one of the Shichibukai, his strength cannot be underestimated. However, when compared to other Shichibukai, Moria’s strength is actually not that significant. In fact, you could say he is the weakest Shichibukai compared to the others.
Moria often uses his devil fruit, the Kage Kage no Mi, to steal other people’s shadows and put them into the zombies he has prepared. Zombies are a new race created by this Paramecia type devil fruit, because they can’t live in the sun. Zombies are certainly different from ordinary humans, that’s why this devil fruit creates a new race that is none other than zombies.
Hobby Hobby No Mi
The Hobi Hobi no Mi is a Paramecia-type devil fruit that gives the user the ability to turn a person or living thing into a toy, by touching it. When someone has turned into a toy, that figure will no longer be remembered by others because their memories of that figure have been erased.
This devil fruit is owned by Sugar, who is one of the commanders of the Donquixote pirate group. Toys become another new race in the world of One Piece besides the zombies introduced in the story. Toys created from the Hobby Hobby devil fruit can only be controlled by Sugar alone, and no other power can stop the awesomeness of this devil fruit, not even Haki. Making Sugar faint is the only way to stop her devil fruit effect.
Soru Soru No Mi
The Soru Soru no Mi is a Paramecia-type devil fruit, where the user can control and manipulate a soul. Initially this devil fruit was eaten by Mother Carmel, who is a “mother” figure for Big Mom, but the ability was later transferred to Big Mom after Mother Carmel died. Soru Soru no Mi can also be said to be a very terrible devil fruit.
This devil fruit is able to create a new race called the Homies. Homies themselves are a race where almost all inanimate objects can be made like living things, because Big Mom puts souls into these inanimate objects. Examples of this are Zeus, Prometheus, and Hera which are clouds created by Big Mom. Or Napoleon which is the mainstay of Big Mom’s sword. All objects in Whole Cake Island are also Homies created by Big Mom.
The power of the devil fruit turns out to be very powerful, where in addition to being able to provide extraordinary improvements to the user, the devil fruit is also able to create a new race in the world of One Piece. This is of course another uniqueness of the devil fruit which is one of the interesting elements of the series.
