One Piece: 15 Strongest Zoan Devil Fruits (Ranked)

Zoan devil fruits are a unique type of devil fruit in One Piece and have three different sub-types. Each and every Zoan devil fruit has its own characteristics and is extremely powerful. For example, Mythical Zoan devil fruits are mentioned to be the rarest type of devil one could get their hands on. Furthermore, some of them own the top rankings in our list of strongest devil fruits in existence. Having said that, we have compiled a list of the strongest Zoan devil fruits in One Piece to showcase to you the true monstrous powers of these devil fruits.

Spoiler Warning: This article contains spoilers about the Zoan devil fruits and their powers. We suggest you watch the anime or read the manga first to avoid ruining your experience.

We have already covered the strongest logia devil fruits and strongest paramecia devil fruits separately. Now, it’s time to learn all about the strongest zoan devil fruits:

1. Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika

One Piece: 15 Strongest Zoan Devil Fruits (Ranked)
  • English Name: Human-Human Fruit, Model: Nika
  • Devil Fruit User: Monkey D. Luffy
  • Type: Mythical Zoan

It was not a long time ago when the fans rated Luffy’s devil fruit rather low in the rankings. But times have since changed, and we were all tricked by Oda sensei with this devil fruit. Previously, it was believed that Luffy ate the Gomu Gomu no Mi, a paramecia-type devil fruit, as shown in the initial episodes. But that isn’t the case, as Luffy’s devil fruit is called the “Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika,” a Mythical Zoan devil fruit.

Now, after its glorious reveal in the long-running Wano Country arc, it has been termed as not only the strongest Zoan devil fruit of all time but also the strongest devil fruit currently in the One Piece world.

This devil fruit gave birth to Luffy’s complete gears system, which is still Luffy’s key power (combining devil fruit powers as well as Haki in some forms). Recently, after awakening his devil fruit, Luffy was able to showcase a godly new Gear 5 technique. Currently, Luffy’s powers are in their pinnacle form, and he is rising to become the strongest character in One Piece. Let’s see what more Luffy has up his sleeve and can achieve with his rubbery and god-like powers.

2. Uo Uo no Mi, Model: Seiryu

  • English Name: Fish-Fish Fruit, Model: Azure Dragon
  • Devil Fruit User: Kaido
  • Type: Mythical Zoan

Harnessing the abilities of the Uo Uo no mi, Model: Seiryu devil fruit has allowed Kaido to claim the title of “Strongest creature in the world” in the One Piece anime series. With the use of this devil fruit, a user can fully transform into an azure dragon or keep their hybrid form as desired. This giant dragon’s powerful abilities are a force not to be taken lightly.

Until Luffy’s Hito Hito no Mi, Model Nika was brought to light, Kaido’s Uo Uo no Mi, Model: Seiryu was regarded to be the strongest Zoan devil fruit in the series. With the use of his dragon abilities, Kaido can shatter anything and breathe highly potent fire strikes. Only the most powerful haki users are able to leave a mark on the dragon’s skin, making it nearly indestructible. Kaido showcased the demolishing powers of this devil fruit in the Wano Country arc (which is currently one of the best arcs in One Piece).

3. Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix

  • English Name: Bird-Bird Fruit, Model: Phoenix
  • Devil Fruit User: Marco The Phoenix
  • Type: Mythical Zoan

Marco earned the moniker “Marco The Phoenix” after the glorious powers he received after eating the Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix devil fruit. With the aid of this devil fruit, he can transform into the fabled Phoenix (a mythical creature) — fully or in a hybrid form, both of which are useful in combat. As a result, consuming this Zoan devil fruit makes the user an all-rounder in all aspects.

The term “Rise Like A Phoenix From The Ashes” must be familiar to you. True to that, Marco has a special capability that comes with this devil fruit. It is the flames surrounding Marco that can be used to heal him and also the allies around him. The user also gets the gift of superior strength and incredible flying speed like a phoenix. Therefore, Marco can fly faster, thanks to his wings, which he can also employ in battle.

4. Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Daibutsu

  • English Name: Human-Human Fruit, Model: Buddha
  • Devil Fruit User: Sengoku
  • Type: Mythical Zoan

Sengoku was regarded as being formidable by Monkey D. Garp and pirate king Gol D. Roger during his time period, thanks to his Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Daibutsu devil fruit. With the use of these devil fruit abilities, the user can instantly transform into a huge golden Buddha. At the time, this devil fruit was regarded as the most potent Zoan devil fruit on the entire planet, yet once again, we only saw a small portion of its potential.

Right now, what we know about this devil fruit’s powers is that the user can produce strong shockwaves that can severely hurt a large number of adversaries over a larger area. The strongest physical attacks are produced by combining these shockwave powers with physical strikes, leaving the enemies completely obliterated. This is what makes Sengoku one of the strongest marine admirals in One Piece.

5. Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Okuchi no Makami

  • English Name: Dog-Dog Fruit, Model: Okuchi-no-Makami
  • Devil Fruit User: Yamato
  • Type: Mythical Zoan

Yamato consumed a Mythical Zoan-type devil fruit, which turns him into a revered and prehistoric Japanese gray wolf who served as the “Guardian Deity of Wano Country.” According to recent revelations, the user of this devil fruit can either entirely shift or maintain a hybrid form. Hence, one could question what makes this devil fruit so unique.

The user inherits all of the wolf’s best features such as its canine teeth and claws. The user also has a special ability to make ice, which they may employ to cover themselves or weapons (like Armament Haki) with it or release as a devastating blast from their mouth or even make defensive walls out of ice.

During the battle with his father Kaidou, Yamato demonstrated his devil fruit abilities to their full extent. With the help of these abilities, he was able to square up against an emperor of the sea and outduel him. Even the mighty Kaido acknowledged that it was challenging for him to fight this devil fruit, which speaks volumes about its power.

6. Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Pteranodon

  • English Name: Dragon-Dragon Fruit, Pteranodon Model
  • Devil Fruit User: King
  • Type: Ancient Zoan

Kaido’s right-hand man King ate the Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Pteranodon, which alters the user into a Pteranodon; one of the biggest flying reptiles ever known to exist in the world. The user has the option to transform into a massive Pteranodon or a hybrid one, the same as the other users. The user gains an astounding flying speed and a harder, more rigid physique by becoming a bigger flying reptile.

As you might know, King is one of the strongest swordsmen in One Piece, thus, he uses his swords in tandem with his devil fruit powers in the show. Kaido recognized his true powers in his youth, which is why he recruited King as his right-hand man. With the devil fruit powers of Pteranodon, he is currently dominating Zoro in terms of power. Without a doubt, this Ancient Zoan devil fruit is one of the best we have seen in One Piece to date.

7. Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Brachiosaurus

  • English Name: Dragon-Dragon Fruit, Model: Brachiosaurus
  • Devil Fruit User: Queen
  • Type: Ancient Zoan

Queen of the Beast Pirates ate the Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Brachiosaurus. It allows him to turn into a Brachiosaurus. Don’t get confused by brachiosaurus dinosaurs, as they are kinder herbivores in reality. Queen, on the other hand, uses the devil fruit’s gigantic powers coupled with cybernetic enhancements to cause absolute mayhem. He thoroughly made use of this long and strong body with cybernetics to come up with super special attacks.

One can easily find out that the hard skin of the dinosaur blesses the user with incredible durability against any attack. Initially, Sanji had a tough time against Queen but came out as the winner in the end. Queen made this devil fruit so special with his cybernetics, and that is the reason why it ranks as one of the strongest Zoan devil fruits.

8. Neko Neko no Mi, Model: Leopard

  • English Name: Cat-Cat Fruit, Model: Leopard
  • Devil Fruit User: Rob Lucci
  • Type: Carnivorous Zoan

The Neko Neko no Mi, Model: Leopard was consumed by the ex-CP9 and current CP0 member Rob Lucci. He was considered a prodigy even before he ate this devil fruit, which significantly boosted his potential. This devil fruit allows its user to turn into a leopard or a hybrid form of a human x leopard. Rob Lucci, a master of the Rokushiki technique, made full use of his devil fruit powers, elevating his martial art techniques to the next level.

Rob Lucci was strong back in the Ennies Lobby arc, with the power and swiftness of a leopard. Over time, he continued to grow stronger and has now awakened his devil fruit. He improved his physical stamina, quickness, and rate of recovery as a result; much like the other awakened users. Yet later in the Egghead arc, Luffy used his Gear 5 technique to completely vanquish him once more. As Rob Lucci and Luffy are working together for the time being, we will get to witness more of his abilities very soon.

9. Zou Zou no Mi, Model: Mammoth

  • English Name: Eleph-Eleph Fruit Ancient Zoan Model Mammoth
  • Devil Fruit User: Jack
  • Type: Ancient Zoan

Jack of the Beast Pirates is the one who consumed the Zou Zou no Mi, Model: Mammoth devil fruit, which allows him to become, well, a Mammoth. For the uninitiated, mammoths were deemed to be larger and heavier than elephants that exist on Earth. So, you can imagine the enormous power and resilience of these giants, and that’s exactly what this devil fruit bestows on its user.

With this behemoth of a power, Jack became an All-Star of the Beast Pirates. He was a formidable character who was fearsome when he was introduced in the Zou arc. Furthermore, even with these powers, he was defeated by the Minks and we don’t know if we will ever see him again. But within a short time, Jack proved the destructive powers of his devil fruit.

10. Ushi Ushi no Mi, Model: Giraffe

  • English Name: Ox-Ox Fruit, Model: Giraffe
  • Devil Fruit User: Kaku
  • Type: Zoan

Kaku is now a CP0 member who ate the Ushi Ushi no Mi, Model: Giraffe devil fruit when he was a CP9 member. This devil fruit enables him to turn into a giraffe or maintain a hybrid form. The giraffe’s powers give him a longer neck and limbs, enhancing his overall strength and resilience. Kaku also uses his swords in his hybrid form, making him a formidable swordsman in One Piece.

Now, in the ongoing Egghead arc, it is confirmed that Kaku has successfully achieved the awakening of his devil fruit. This resulted in him developing a more dangerous form, which is super powerful. Kaku was struggling with his powers at first but now he has even managed to awaken it and become stronger with this Zoan devil fruit powers. We can confirm that we will see more of his powers in the Eggheard Arc manga chapters soon.

11. Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Kyubi no Kitsune

  • English Name: Dog-Dog Fruit, Model: Nine-Tailed Fox
  • Devil Fruit User: Catarina Devon
  • Type: Mythical Zoan

The Crescent Moon Hunter, Catarina Devon of the Blackbeard Pirates, was considered to be the vicious female pirate to be locked inside the Impel Down Prison. This menacing pirate now has one of the terrifying devil fruit powers in her possession. She ate the Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Kyubi no Kitsune fruit, which gives her the powers of the nine-tailed fox. Yes, you heard that right! We don’t know if she holds the same powers as Naruto’s Kurama yet.

We know very little about her powers at the moment. She can turn into a nine-tailed fox in a hybrid form or a complete form. One of the scariest powers of the nine-tailed fox is the ability to disguise herself as any other person in this world. That’s a frightening ability, especially in the hands of the evil Blackbeard pirates member.

12. Neko Neko no Mi, Model: Saber Tiger

  • English Name: Cat-Cat Fruit, Saber-Toothed Tiger Model
  • Devil Fruit User: Who’s-Who
  • Type: Ancient Zoan

Who’s who is an ex-CP9 member in One Piece who turned into a pirate after the failure of his mission. He then started his own pirate crew and joined Kaido’s Beast Pirates. Finally, Who’s who went on to become the strongest member of the Tobiroppo. He has consumed the Neko Neko no Mi, Model: Saber Tiger devil fruit, which allows him to become a ferocious and gigantic saber tiger. He can transform into one or maintain a hybrid form like all the other users.

The physical attributes of Who’s Who were greatly increased by his devil fruit powers. The predatory abilities of a saber-tiger can deliver some serious damage to opponents. Moreover, as he is an ex-CP9 member, Who’s Who is an expert in the Rokushiki technique, which he uses in tandem with his devil fruit powers in battle. With these powers, Who’s Who was considered to be a prodigy like Rob Lucci by the agency.

13. Kumo Kumo no Mi, Model: Rosamygale Grauvogeli

  • English Name: Spider-Spider Fruit, Model: Rosamygale Grauvogeli
  • Devil Fruit User: Black Maria
  • Type: Ancient Zoan

Black Maria of the Beast Pirates is also one of the strongest members of the Tobiroppo. It was mentioned that her powers boosted her potential to become an All-Star member of the Beast Pirate. She ate the Kumo Kumo no Mi, Model: Rosamygale Grauvogeli devil fruit, which gives her the ability to transform into a predatory spider (or a hybrid form). Since she inherits the properties of a spider, one can even call her the Spiderwoman of the One Piece universe.

She can crawl on walls, shoot sticky and flammable webs, has spider claws in her spider legs, etc. These spider powers are really powerful and showcased against Nico Robin. It is said that she used a drug to enhance her devil fruit powers like how Chopper uses Rumble Ball to develop more serious powers. Furthermore, it’s highly doubtful if we will ever see the powers of this devil fruit again in the series.

14. Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Pachycephalosaurus

  • English Name: Dragon-Dragon Fruit, Model: Pachycephalosaurus
  • Devil Fruit User: Ulti
  • Type: Ancient Zoan

Ulti was one of the recent addition to the antagonists in the Wano country arc. She is recognized as one of the strongest members of the Tobiroppo. She managed to achieve this feat thanks to her brutal devil fruit powers. Her ancient Zoan devil fruit allows her to turn into a Pachycephalosaurus (thick-headed dinosaur) at will. She can maintain a hybrid form or completely transform into a dinosaur too. Thus, this enables Ulti to get incredible sturdiness and strength.

Ulti has shown how durable she was after recovering from the mighty blows of Yamato and even Big Mom. Her thick head greatly helps in her signature “Headbutt” attacks, which can crush anyone. Ulti’s speed has also got a significant upgrade, and it was seen in the battle. All these powers with her attitude made her one of the most popular female characters in One Piece.

15. Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Allosaurus

  • English Name: Dragon-Dragon Fruit, Model: Allosaurus
  • Devil Fruit User: X- Drake
  • Type: Ancient Zoan

X-Drake, the undercover pirate and the captain of SWORD ate the Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Allosaurus devil fruit. This gave him the power to become an Allosaurus. He can become an Allosaurus in an instant, boasting razor-sharp teeth and a giant tail. Like the big carnivorous dinosaurs from the classic Jurassic Park movies, X-Drake can catch and excruciate anyone with his jaws.

This significantly boosted his strength and toughness, which he proved recently during the raid in One Piece. X-Drake is going to be one of the important characters in the endgame as he is the captain of SWORD and lots of its new members were revealed recently. He’ll certainly put the powers of his zoan devil fruits to use soon.

Bonus: Artificial Zoan Devil Fruit

  • English Name: Fish-Fish Fruit, Model: Azure Dragon
  • Devil Fruit User: Momonosuke
  • Type: Mythical Zoan (Artificial)

We were introduced to the concept of artificial devil fruits back in the Punk Hazard arc in One Piece. And that’s when we saw Momonosuke with the powers of a dragon, like Kaido. It was later confirmed that this artificial devil fruit was made by Dr. Vegapunk based on Kaido’s Uo Uo no Mi, Model: Seiryu. It was deemed a failure by Dr. Vegapunk as he didn’t get the color right. But all thanks to these devil fruit powers, Momonosuke played a pivotal role during the raid on Onigashima.

It retains all the powers of the Uo Uo no Mi, Model: Seiryu devil fruit but Momonosuke is still in his learning phase. He was able to fly and make flame clouds and saved the Wano country. Moreover, during Aramaki’s arrival after the raid, Momo was able to successfully recreate one of the strongest attacks of Kaido named Bolo Breath and blasted the admiral (who is currently one of the strongest marine admirals in One Piece). Momo has the potential to become a great Zoan devil fruit user in the future.
