In the world of One Piece, Mythical Zoan Devil Fruits are exceptionally rare and immensely powerful, said to be even rarer than Logia-type Fruits. Unlike the other types of Zoan-type Devil Fruits, this subclass may be the only one considered impressive, due to its rarity and the powers it confers upon the user. They allow their users to transform into mythological creatures. In this article, we are going to rank the 11 known Mythical Zoan Devil Fruits (8 canon and 3 non-canon) by power so you know which one of them is the strongest. Enjoy!
11. Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Bake-danuki (non-canon)
Eaten by: Pato
The Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Bake-danuki, is a Mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to transform at will into a mythical raccoon named Tanuki. Inu means dog and it is one of the many designs in the Inu Inu no Mi series. This fruit was eaten by Pato, a pen, making him an object that ate a Devil Fruit. The main strength of this Fruit is that it allows Pato to transform into Tanuki, a kind of raccoon from Japanese mythology.
Being a Mythical Zoan-type Fruit, it allows you to transform into an authentic Tanuki, and therefore allows you to write on leaves to transform them into living objects or objects, such as a telescope, clones of Enel, Kuzan, or even cannons. This fruit also makes it possible to reproduce the powers of the Devil Fruits. As we can see in the final fight against Patrick Redfield.
This fruit, using the leaves, imitated the powers of Goro Goro no Mi, Hie Hie no Mi, and even Batto Batto no Mi, Model: Vampire. This fruit, therefore, makes it possible to create several objects without any difficulty since we see Red create a cannon of Marineford and this in a few seconds. The limitation of this fruit is unknown since at no time in the game is there any mention of limitation and weakness for this devil fruit.
This fruit does not seem to have any particular weaknesses apart from those common to Devil Fruits. Pato uses it to turn leaves into objects, such as a telescope, and Patrick Redfield used it to turn leaves into clones of existing people, like Enel or Kuzan. The Devil Fruits of these characters were also present. This fruit has also been used to replicate Devil Fruit attacks, to create islands, and to create items such as Marineford cannons.
10. Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Nue (non-canon)
Eaten by: Toratsugu
The Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Nue is a non-canon Mythic Zoan-type Devil Fruit allowing its user to transform into nue or a hybrid form at will. It was eaten by Toratsugu. This fruit can be divided into three parts according to its width. The widest part is the top and the narrowest the bottom. It is covered with spirals except at its top. A rod overhangs the whole, with a rounded end and a straight end.
In animal form, Toratsugu resembles a Japanese Nue, a fantastical creature from Japanese mythology that uses its fiery limbs to move from cloud to cloud like a dragon. Nue has the head of a monkey, the legs of a tiger, the body of a lion, and a tail in the shape of a giant serpent. This fruit’s greatest known ability is that it allows its user to fly.
In Nue form, its user can fight and cause destruction, which was shown when Toratsugu attacked Lark and Kikuhime’s wedding ceremony. Nue’s animal form is large enough to carry people on her back. We don’t know of any specific weaknesses to this fruit other than the standard Devil Fruit ones. Toratsugu uses this fruit to fight, he used it to fight first against Lark, then against Luffy. He also uses it to travel by flying and to escape. When living alone as an outlaw, he seemed to be in Nue form most if not all of the time.
9. Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Onyudo
Eaten by: Onimaru
The Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Onyudo is a mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to transform into an Onyudo (a great yokai monk) at will. It was consumed by Onimaru. This fruit gives the user the ability to transform into an onyudo, a mythical yokai that takes the form of a gigantic monk; this model of the Hito Hito no Mi gives the user human-like intelligence if eaten by a non-human, for example, an animal like Onimaru.
So far no specific weaknesses beyond the standard devil fruit weaknesses are known. Onimaru is able to transform into an onyudo, which is known as Gyukimaru. Like Gyukimaru, he is able to speak like a human. In keeping with his size, Gyukimaru has enormous strength, as he could match Zoro’s enormous physical strength.
He also has great speed, being able to match Zoro’s agility, though, in their next match, he was outmatched by Zoro, implying that he might have had the upper hand in the first match because he caught the swordsman off guard.
8. Batto Batto no Mi, Model: Vampire (non-canon)
Eaten by: Patrick Redfield
The Batto Batto no Mi, Model: Vampire, is a Mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to transform at will into a vampire or a hybrid form. This fruit was eaten by Patrick Redfield. The Batto Batto no Mi, Model: Vampire is a tomato-shaped purple-colored fruit with typical Devil Fruit swirl patterns and a curly green stem surrounded by smaller stems. The fruit is compact enough to be easily held in a human’s hand.
Redfield, using his power, stole Yadoya’s and Luffy’s vitality, leaving them in an advanced state of aging. Indeed, Luffy ends up with white hair and gray skin, and his body becomes unfit for combat. Redfield uses his fruit to launch powerful shockwaves that appear to be formed from blood. He can also cast a dark mist over a wide area in which his opponents are unable to see him (except his red eyes) and in which he moves with phenomenal speed. His Devil Fruit grants him great physical strength, which he uses to attack opponents with his claws and wings.
7. Hebi Hebi no Mi, Model: Yamata no Orochi
Eaten by: Kurozumi Orochi
The Hebi Hebi no Mi, Model: Yamata no Orochi is a mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that grants the power to partially or fully transform into the Yamata-no-Orochi. The last user of it was Kurozumi Orochi, and with his death, the fruit was reborn somewhere. The fruit is pineapple-shaped and has a bright fuchsia color. There are light green stem leaves on the top of the fruit with a round triangular shape at each end and scales around the fruit. The scales possess the swirling patterns typical of Devil Fruits.
This fruit grants its user eight serpent heads, each capable of speaking for itself. It appears that the user has some degree of control over the number of heads that can sprout at one time, with eight being the maximum limit. Interestingly, some of the features of Orochi’s human form, such as his crown and mustache, are only present on one of the heads.
Likewise, the consumer can vary the size and length of said heads, which may be no larger than a normal head or larger than a person and several meters long. In this form, the user can bite their enemies with considerable force and range, the latter due to the great length of the necks. The user also gains quite a bit of stamina in his transformed state, as Orochi was able to take damage from a collapsing roof on his head with minimal damage, as well as surviving thanks to a lightning bolt amplified by Zeus.
The fruit’s multiple heads also allow the user to survive decapitation, even in human form, being limited by the number of heads. Orochi uses this fruit primarily in combat, though he has also been seen using it to intimidate people, as shown when he met with the CP0 and when he confronted Komurasaki. Orochi has also been seen biting his subordinates. His ability allows him to survive decapitation, up to seven times, and he used this to his advantage to launch hidden counterattacks against his unsuspecting enemies.
6. Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Kyubi no Kitsune
Eaten by: Catarina Devon
The Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Kyubi no Kitsun is a Mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to transform into a dog, more precisely into a Nine-Tailed Fox, the Kyubi. It was eaten by Catarina Devon. The hybrid form shows Devon with nine equally sized wide tails. She retains her human arms and her face takes on some fox-like features.
The main strength of this Fruit is that it gives its user the ability to transform into Kyubi, a mythological creature. She can transform into a different person well enough to deceive acquaintances of that person. So far, this Fruit has no weaknesses except for those common to all Devil Fruits. However, it seems that Devon must first transform into a fox if she wants to return to her original appearance. Devon used this Fruit to transform into Absalom and trick Gecko Moria.
5. Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Okuchi no Makami
Eaten by: Yamato
The Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Okuchi no Makami is a mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to partially or fully turn into a wolf deity. It was consumed by Yamato. The fruit-shaped fruit resembles an oval persimmon of deep orange color, having only a few of the characteristic spirals sprouting from the center, where pale brown greenery is found. The stem is orange.
The fruit allows its user to transform into the okuchi no makami, a beast-human form of it, which is known in Wano Country as its guardian deity. In its full beast form, its user transforms into a large whitish wolf with very light fur. Transformed into his beast-human form, Yamato gains large whitish fur, as well as canine lower legs and much sharper teeth.
Being a carnivorous Zoan, the fruit gives Yamato a great increase in physical abilities, allowing him to stand up to Kaido. Like many mythical variants, the fruit grants its user special abilities, in this case being able to emit blasts of ice, which can rival a Seiryu’s dragon breath. Weaknesses other than standard ones are unknown.
Yamato uses the power of this fruit for combat. He has shown to be able, in his beast-human form, to fight almost equally against his father Kaido, while the latter was in his hybrid form, with Kaido praising his strength. In Yamato’s hybrid form, he prefers to wield his kanabo like he does in human form (similarly to Kaido), enhancing his hand-to-hand combat prowess.
4. Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix
Eaten by: Marco
The Tori Tori no Mi, Model: Phoenix is a mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to transform into a phoenix at will. It was consumed by Marco. Marco uses the fruit in combat. In his full phoenix form, he can transform his feet into the claws of a phoenix, which can be used to attack. During the Battle of Marineford, Marco displayed his aerial maneuverability by quickly traversing the battlefield and taking damage from the attack instead of Whitebeard.
Like other Zoan users, he can take a hybrid beast-human form. However, Marco’s control over his transformations seems to be the best of any Zoan user shown thus far, as unlike most other Zoan users (Laffitte, Chopper, and Onigumo possibly being the only exceptions known), Marco can transform selective parts of his body into the form of a phoenix without changing his entire appearance.
In his most commonly seen hybrid form, Marco only transforms his arms into phoenix wings (sometimes he chooses to keep his hands) so he can fly and attack with kicks. Marco also takes full advantage of the fruit’s regenerative properties during combat and uses it often. He has even been seen to recover using scattered flames and simultaneously turning into his human form.
Despite the fact that it cannot be used as an offensive weapon, he can still summon the blue flames around him, in his human form (possibly partially changing into his hybrid form or full phoenix form), as seen when he filled his arm of blue flames as he prepared to face Akainu. As flames can be used to heal others, he used them in his work as a doctor on Sphinx Island, as well as in the raid on Onigashima to heal victims of the ice oni virus.
3. Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Daibutsu
Eaten by: Sengoku
The Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Daibutsu is a mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that grants the power to turn a gigantic golden Buddha statue at will. It was consumed by the former admiral of the Marine fleet, Sengoku. Until now, Sengoku has been seen using this fruit mainly for combat purposes, to enhance the power of his fists, a power that was demonstrated when he made Luffy bleed and destroyed the execution platform.
Sengoku can launch shockwaves to deal heavy, widespread damage to a group of enemies, and are strong enough to damage Blackbeard Pirates level pirates. In the anime, these shockwaves have been shown to be powerful enough to collide with the waves created by Marshall D. Teach’s Gura Gura no Mi.
When Sengoku first used the powers of this fruit, in an attempt to execute both Luffy and Ace, a Marine pointed out that it was the first time he had seen Sengoku use his powers, suggesting that he rarely sees himself. transform. At the time of his transformation, all of Marineford was bathed in blinding golden light, highlighting the idea that Sengoku is an “enlightened one”.
2. Uo Uo no Mi, Model: Seiryu
Eaten by: Kaidou
The Uo Uo no Mi, Model: Seiryu is a mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that allows its user to fully or partially transform into an Eastern Dragon, specifically the Azure Dragon (Seiryu). It was consumed by Kaidou. The fruit is somewhat pointed and is made up of several pointed pieces similar to the scales of a dragon, being cyan in color with a darker interior, where the spirals are found. It has orange greenery at its base and, unlike the rest of the devil fruits, it has a double purple stem.
Kaidou uses this fruit frequently in combat. Unlike most Zoan-type fruit users seen so far, he normally starts battles in his full transformation and returns to his original form, as his base form seems more suited to close one-on-one combat. When he faces opponents in his full dragon form, Kaidou stands a considerable distance away from them in order to assault them with destructive elemental attacks launched from his mouth, usually using a fire blast. He has also been seen biting nearby opponents.
Outside of combat, Kaidou can create clouds, primarily using them as footholds to take flight; this way, he can easily travel between islands by crossing the open sea as he did between Onigashima and the main island of Wano. He can also levitate objects, even giants, by creating enough clouds, as shown when he sent the entire island of Onigashima aloft to continue his New Onigashima Project, lifting the island and directing it towards the Flower Capital of Wano Country.
1. Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika
Eaten by: Monkey D. Luffy
The Gomu Gomu no Mi, originally known as the Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika, is a mythical Zoan-type devil fruit that allows the user to transform into the incarnation of the legendary “Sun God” Nika and thus obtain a body with the properties of rubber. When renamed, it was also reclassified as a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that apparently transformed its user into a rubbery human.
Originally, it was a highly sought-after treasure of the World Government for 800 years until it was stolen by Shanks and his crew. It was accidentally consumed twelve years ago by Monkey D. Luffy. The awakening of this devil fruit allows its user to inherit the title of “Joy Boy”. The Gomu Gomu no Mi is a violet spherical fruit, with a stem sprouting from the top, with swirls going in a curly “S” shape. In general, it resembles a Yubari melon.
During his youth, Luffy had trouble controlling his own abilities. Even though he had an idea of how they would work, Luffy had trouble aiming at the target and timing his attacks; continually, his own techniques recoiled. However, he managed to counteract these weaknesses, training in a dangerous jungle in which he managed to control his ability in his youth. The fruit’s powers have been used by Luffy in a variety of ways. These range from simply moving from one place to another (in a rather reckless way), to attacking an enemy with a barrage of fast and powerful blows.
He has also developed various peculiar fighting methods over time, achieving new “forms” by manipulating his elastic body. The most prominent is his gears, which allow him to momentarily increase his speed or strength in combat. After the time skip, Luffy learned to control and harness his power much better, as well as how to combine it with Haki.
