The world of One Piece not only has a power system called Haki but a unique power in the form of devil fruits as well. There are numerous types of devil fruits in One Piece, and we have seen some of the strongest devil fruits in existence. But, Paramecia-type devil fruits are very different from Logia and Zoan types; plus they are the most common type among the three. Nevertheless, do not let this fool you from the fact there are various strongest paramecia devil fruits that can wreak havoc in the world. So, let’s look at the 15 best paramecia devil fruits in One Piece.
Spoiler Warning: This article contains spoilers about devil fruits and their types shown in the One Piece universe. We suggest you watch the anime or read the manga first to avoid ruining the intended experience.
1. Gura Gura no Mi
- English Name: Tremor-Tremor Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Whitebeard (Previously), Blackbeard (Currently)
Inarguably due to its utterly devastating abilities, the Gura Gura no Mi is regarded as the strongest Paramecia devil fruit of all time. As Marine Admiral Sengoku stated, this demon fruit indeed has the ability to end the planet, and its abilities are well-known worldwide. It is terrifying how capable this devil fruit can produce earthquakes or shockwaves that can travel through any medium.
Furthermore, in hand-to-hand combat, this devil fruit user can employ his seismic tactics to cause great damage. Thus, this paramecia-type devil fruit is one of the best devil fruits in existence as its offensive power is unmatched.
With this devil fruit, Whitebeard became known as the “Strongest Man in the World” and feared by all. Additionally, Whitebeard also attained levels and rivaled the Pirate King Roger, thanks to this devil fruit power and obviously Haki too. The ultimate powers of this devil fruit were demonstrated by our Oyaji, Whitebeard in the Marineford arc (one of the best arcs in One Piece).
But this devil fruit has ended up in the hands of Blackbeard, which we didn’t see it coming. Now we have to watch the wrecking powers of this devil fruit in his villainous hands.
2. Ope Ope no Mi
- English Name: Op-Op Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Trafalgar D. Water Law
Coming in second is Trafalgar Law’s Ope Ope no Mi, the most versatile devil fruit in the One Piece world. This devil fruit has a unique ability not found in any other devil fruit, that of granting another person everlasting youth in return for the devil fruit user’s own life. This fruit’s powers include the ability to construct a dome area called “Room” and to freely control everything or anybody inside of it like a surgeon. Furthermore, this user can pull off miracles and cure incurable illnesses with the powers of this devil fruit.
Trafalgar Law’s medical knowledge also benefited him in making the most of this devil fruit’s abilities in every situation. He has mastered its powers and succeeded in awakening this devil fruit’s true powers. And well, the Marines were after this devil fruit; even willing to give 5,000,000,000 Berries.
3. Nikyu Nikyu no Mi
- English Name: Paw-Paw Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Bartholomew Kuma
The latest revelations of Bartholomew Kuma’s Nikyu Nikyu no Mi in the manga have elevated its status as one of the greatest devil fruits ever. Thus, it is another destructive Paramecia-type devil fruit, and it can do devastation with just the user’s hands. With the help of this devil fruit, the user may repel “anything” with their hands. The user’s hands resemble a dog or cat paw but don’t get confused by the kawaii appearance, as it can obliterate anyone easily.
With the powers of this devil fruit, the more creative the user is, the more he can utilize it to pull off impossible feats. It can be useful in both attack and defense in an amazing way. Additionally, it can also be used to store any form of intangible things, like pain, memories, possibly devil fruit powers, and more, as they can be accessed by anyone. We hope you now understand the various powers of this devil fruit and why it’s one of the strongest paramecia devil fruits.
4. Zushi Zushi no Mi
- English Name: Press-Press Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Fujitora
One of the deadliest but underappreciated devil fruits is Fujitora’s Zushi Zushi no Mi. This devil fruit enables the user to create and control gravitational forces. For instance, the user can perform telekinetic-like actions such as pushing things or people front and back or levitating them up in midair at will. It is one of the most terrifying devil fruits as it has the capacity to destroy the world.
You just can’t imagine this devil fruit’s powers in the wrong hands. The ultimate move of this devil fruit is that it has the ability to summon meteors from the sky and utilize them to obliterate anyone in the user’s path. Though we are yet to see the true potential of this devil fruit’s powers, yet it is qualified to be one of the strongest paramecia devil fruits. We can’t wait to see more of this devil fruit in action soon.
5. Jiki Jiki no Mi
- English Name: Magnet-Magnet Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Eustass Kid
Jiki Jiki no Mi is a fascinating devil fruit that attracts everyone (pun intended). The user can generate and manage magnetic fields at will using this devil fruit. The user can then flawlessly attract and repel any metals surrounding them as they like. Since Kid has also achieved the awakening of this devil fruit, he can transform anything, including goods and living creatures, into a magnet. The power of attraction can be used in a variety of ways and can be very destructive.
Kid successfully mastered his devil fruit’s powers and was able to defeat Big Mom alongside Law. He has grown considerably in terms of power and even challenged Shanks recently. Even though he got one shot by Shanks, the red hair pirate remarked that Kid’s attack could have resulted in the total destruction of the people if he hadn’t defeated him. That’s how powerful Kid is but his present situation is a big question mark. We hope he can recover from this defeat and rise up again.
6. Ito Ito no Mi
- English Name: String-String Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Donquixote Doflamingo
Doflamingo, the most malevolent character in the One Piece universe, seems to be created for the Ito Ito no Mi devil fruit. He gains the ability to construct and use strings at will with this devil fruit. The resulting threads are razor-sharp; such that they can even sever meteorites, buildings, and even people. If you are wondering what they can do to human flesh, they can easily inflict serious injuries and you don’t want to imagine that as it can get bloody and gory.
Using this devil fruit’s powers, Doflamingo becomes a puppet master and controls people with his strings. He can also attach these strings to clouds (like how Spiderman can shoot his webs) and fly across the seas. His evilness was reflected well with this devil fruit power, but it has been a while since we have seen him in action. Just let the man out!
7. Hobi Hobi no Mi
- English Name: Hobby-Hobby Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Sugar
Hobi Hobi no Mi, Sugar’s devil fruit, is successful despite missing offensive combat powers. It boasts the ability to instantly transform someone into a toy; automatically making them a slave to the user. This is exactly why it is one of the strongest paramecia devil fruits ever. The memory of the people who become toys is also removed from the brains of those who knew them, so you are forgettable. Now, you know why this demon fruit has powers akin to curses.
The user can take over a whole island by turning everyone into toys and brainwashing the people there. Just when we thought this devil fruit’s powers couldn’t get more powerful, this fact will blow your minds. This devil fruit gives its users immortality and the gift of youth. Yeah, although you can’t use these powers greatly in battle, they come in handy in defensive situations.
8. Soru Soru no Mi
- English Name: Soul-Soul Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Carmel (Previous User). Charlotte Linlin (Current User)
Are you ready to learn about another terrifying devil fruit, it is Big Mom’s Soru Soru no Mi. The user of this devil fruit has the capacity to seize the souls of those who are fearful. The user alone determines how many souls they steal since they can take decades of lifespan, a few years, or even only a few minutes. Further, it is easy to conclude that individuals who are fearless can render this ability useless. But, there are several other powers offered by this devil fruit.
The souls that have been stolen can be utilized to give life to both living and non-living things. That’s how Big Mom created Homies, including her sword Napolean, Zeus, Queen Mama Chanter pirate ship in One Piece, etc. With this fearsome power, Big Mom commanded the oceans and rose to the position of Emperor of the Seas. She can even create an army with these powers, which clearly indicates that one shouldn’t mess with her.
9. Doku Doku no Mi
- English Name: Venom-Venom Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Magellan
The Doku Doku no Mi has toxic powers that have the potential to instantly end anyone’s life. The user of this devil fruit has the ability to produce and control any kind of poison found on the entire planet. It is another devil fruit with poisonous powers that shouldn’t be messed with.
If the opponent doesn’t an antidote, it’s game over for them. The user can quickly destroy and kill all enemies in his way with the power of poison. And that’s why it is one of the best paramecia devil fruits.
These powers appear to be that of a logia-type devil fruit in One Piece, so many people easily get confused. But it’s a paramecia devil fruit. Magellan rose up to be one of the powerful characters in The Impel Down with these powers. Furthermore, the user is also immune to all kinds of poison, so one can’t pull off a “reverse uno card” moment against them.
10. Kage Kage no Mi
- English Name: Shadow-Shadow Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Gecko Moria
Kage Kage no Mi is a devil fruit with spooky powers as the user can create and control shadows of living beings. This may sound ridiculous at first, but let me explain. The user is known as the “Ruler of Shadows” (similar to Jinwoo in Solo Leveling) as they can even steal the shadows of anyone and plant them inside a dead person; creating zombies. They can do so to an alive person too.
The people whose shadows were stolen have to remain in the dark because they will instantly vaporize and die if they are exposed to the sun. The zombies created from the shadows get all the powers and abilities of the owners, and a little bit of their personality as well. Only the user of this devil fruit can return the shadows, making it overpowered.
And well, that’s not all. There’s more in store. The user can collect all the shadows and create a giant shadow form of their own. The major negative is that if the zombie gets defeated, the owners get back their shadows without needing to worry about getting them back from the devil fruit user.
11. Mochi Mochi no Mi
- English Name: Mochi-Mochi Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Charlotte Katakuri
The Mochi Mochi no Mi devil fruit enables the user to entirely transform into Mochi (Japanese rice cake) and manufacture it at will. This devil fruit power may not seem to be as potent on paper, but Katakuri made the most out of it and expertly displayed the capabilities you get with this special devil fruit. It is a paramecia devil fruit but the powers are definitely logia-like; which is why it is considered to be the only special paramecia devil fruit in One Piece.
The mochi powers are super useful in creating walls, traps, etc., and they can be hardened with Haki. The user can come up with different strategies for attacking with the help of mochi. Katakuri has already awakened this devil fruit and managed to give Straw Hat Pirate leader Luffy a tough time. He remained undefeated before meeting Luffy, which tells us a lot about his usage of this devil fruit’s powers.
12. Hana Hana no Mi
- English Name: Flower-Flower Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Nico Robin
By using the powers of the Hana Hana no Mi devil fruit, the user can create clones of the parts of their own body and start growing them from any surface. According to Robin, “speed and strength mean nothing to her as she can render almost any foe into submission with ease” with her powers. This devil fruit comes up with creative powers and a smart person like Nico Robin could use it skillfully from the day we met her.
The user can create and sprout clones of their body parts as well as clone their complete body. Nico Robin came up with versatile powerful attacks as well trapped her enemies into submission with her Flower-Flower devil fruit. Although it leaves the user’s main body vulnerable at times, it is totally up to the user to end the fight before the enemies can even touch them. So yeah, this is a devastating paramecia-type devil fruit that should not be overlooked.
13. Mero Mero no Mi
- English Name: Love-Love Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Boa Hancock
Mero Mero no Mi devil fruit presents us with Medusa-like (Greek Mythology) powers in the One Piece universe. This devil fruit allows the user to transform their opponent into stone (petrify) if they are struck with a feeling of love or lust toward the user. The enemies are also turned into stone by a physical attack from the user. Therefore, the concept of petrification varies and can be only undone by the user. Even if the current user is killed and a new user comes up, they can’t undo them. Thus, petrification powers are surely scary enough to not mess with.
Boa Hancock is one of the most popular female characters in One Piece and has a godly beauty. Thus, it makes things easier for her to use these devil fruit powers as anyone can easily fall for her (just ask the fans). Boa also has a wide variety of attacks in her arsenal. Therefore, Mero Mero no Mi is a clear winner and deserves to be on this list.
14. Bari Bari no Mi
- English Name: Barrier-Barrier Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Bartolomeo
The Bari Bari no Mi enables the user to become a barrier human. The user can create barriers that can be invisible or transparent as the user likes. These barriers are super durable and can withstand many powerful blows and slashes. It is naturally seen as a defensive ability but its powers can also contribute to attacks. For example, the user can use the same barrier to push or shatter against enemies.
The user can create barriers of any form or shape, and we don’t know about its limit for now. The Straw Hat’s biggest fan, Bartolomeo is the current user of this devil fruit powers, and we got to see its powers in the Dressrosa arc.
15. Bara Bara no Mi
- English Name: Chop-Chop Fruit
- Devil Fruit User: Buggy
Bara Bara no Mi is the first paramecia-type devil fruit we were introduced to in the anime and manga. Although it may appear to be an odd devil fruit with hilarious abilities, it is definitely one of the strongest Paramecia devil fruits in One Piece. The user of this devil fruit has the ability to cut or split their body into parts, which they can control at will. Thus, this power makes the user immune to most physical attacks like slicing and cutting.
Let’s say Buggy is able to awaken his devil fruit. Then, it might instantly turn into a dangerous one as the user will gain the ability to cut the surroundings into whatever shape they like. For now, Buggy is like a comic-relief character, thus, the powers of this devil fruit are seen that way. But imagine this power in the hands of a serious foe, as you will see why it’s a powerful devil fruit.
Bonus: Nomi Nomi no Mi
One Piece manga chapter 1067’s major revelations eventually shed some light on Dr. Vegapunk’s devil fruit. Even though Dr. Vegapunk was born with exceptional intelligence, he ate the Nomi Nomi no Mi devil fruit nonetheless. This devil fruit gave him the ability to acquire and preserve knowledge indefinitely in the brain. Thus, this devil fruit makes him the wisest person in the One Piece universe; almost like a walking Encyclopedia.
You are utterly mistaken if you believe that this devil fruit user does not have any offensive or defensive abilities. The abilities of this devil fruit may be used to produce thousands of Pacifistas or Seraphims for combat, as well as a wide range of defensive innovations. As a result, they can easily use their troops to conquer the entire planet or islands. We are yet to see more of this devil fruit’s powers, so we are keeping it as a bonus for now.
