The Devil Fruit is special in the One Piece universe, which grants supernatural abilities to anyone who eats them. In return, when someone eats them, they lose their ability to swim.

So which is the strongest Devil Fruit of all time?

Devil Fruits are divided into three types: Paramecia, Zoan, and Logia. Paramecia grants its users the ability to transform the body or control certain matter, while Logia allows users to control natural elements such as fire, water, ice, light, thunder, lava, and steam.

Additionally, Devil Fruit users of the Logia type can also transform into elements to avoid being attacked by enemies.

The Zoan-type Devil Fruit allows its users to flexibly transform between human and animal forms. At the same time, it also brings out the unique powers and abilities of certain beasts.

The ranking of Devil Fruits based on their powers has long been a topic of debate among One Piece fans. In this article, we present our list of the top five most powerful Devil Fruits in the anime.

Gura Gura no Mi or Tremor-Tremor Fruit is one of the strongest Devil Fruits in the One Piece universe. Thanks to the power of Gura Gura no Mi, Whitebeard has gradually become “the strongest man in the world”.

This Devil Fruit belongs to the Paramecia family, allowing the user to control and create earthquakes and tsunamis, and impact and destroy surrounding objects.

Gura Gura no Mi users also can affect the environment, change the terrain, and shake up a large area, as Whitebeard once did when he destroyed Marineford.

Hito Hito no Mi Model: Nika is one of the most interesting and notable Devil Fruits in One Piece. For the longest time, fans believed that the protagonist, Monkey D. Luffy, only possesses the power of Gomu Gomu no Mi, or Gum-Gum Fruit.

Gomu Gomu no Mi’s baseline state transforms users’ bodies into rubber, granting them elasticity and great flexibility.

After reaching its Awakened state, users of this Devil Fruit can freely do anything with their body and their environment, turning things into rubber. Users also undergo transformation where their hair and clothing turn white, similar to the form of the legendary sun god, Nika.

Type: Logia
Devil Fruit users: Isaac Judas, Marshall D. Teach, Onikami Roxy

Yami Yami no Mi is a Logia-type Devil Fruit that allows users to manipulate darkness, a void that consumes everything. Users are also able to absorb physical matter and attacks of any type by engulfing it in the darkness.

One of the most notable characteristics of this Devil Fruit is its ability to absorb or cancel the effects of other people’s Devil Fruits, as demonstrated by Marshall D. Teach, also known as Blackbeard.

While Yami Yami no Mi seems like it’s the strongest Devil Fruit in the One Piece universe, it also has its limitations.

The fruit’s darkness does not protect its user from attacks, which means they’re just as vulnerable as any other normal human being.

Ope Ope no Mi (Op-Op Fruit)

Type: Paramecia
Devil Fruit users: Trafalgar D. Water Law

Ope Ope no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that enables users to create a powerful, spherical space. In this space, they have full control of the orientation, movements, and physical arrangement of anyone and anything. The fruit also enables its users to become capable of surgeries and cure all kinds of diseases.

Users of this Devil Fruit can cut, split, and control space, allowing them to perform complex medical surgeries either on themselves or on others. They can also teleport objects or separate any part of their opponent’s body.

What is the One Piece?

Dubbed the “Ultimate Devil Fruit,” Ope Ope no Mi also has a unique ability to grant another person eternal youth in exchange for the user’s own life.

Is this the strongest Devil Fruit in the anime or what?

Uo Uo no Mi Model: Seiryu (Fish-Fish Fruit, Model: Azure Dragon)

Type: Mythical Zoan
Devil Fruit users: Kaido, Kozuki Momonosuke (artificial)

Uo Uo no Mi Model: Seiryu belongs to the Mythical Zoan family, which lets users transform into a blue dragon named Seiryu (Azure Dragon), one of the four Divine Dragons in Japanese mythology.

The Governor-General of the Beasts Pirates, Kaido, holds the power of this Devil Fruit. Thanks to the power of Uo Uo no Mi Model: Seiryu, he became one of the Four Emperors, considered the most powerful captains in the One Piece world.

In his dragon state, Kaido gains strength, speed, and stamina. At the same time, he can also attack opponents by spitting fire from his mouth. Before the Wano Country arc began, Kaido was nearly impossible to defeat or even injure because of his Devil Fruit powers.

Uo Uo no Mi Model: Seiryu was once cloned by Dr. Vegapunk, the leading scientist of the Special Science Group of the Marines. The artificial copy of the Devil Fruit was eaten by Kozuki Momonosuke, the shogun of Wano Country.

However, instead of transforming into a blue dragon, Kozuki turned into a pink dragon, which meant that Dr. Vegapunk’s copy was faulty compared to the original.
