In chapter 1044, One Piece revealed its most ridiculous fruit. But the fun part is that we saw this fruit in the first chapter. Author Eiichiro Oda has kept the information hidden for 1000+ chapters. Yes, Luffy’s Gomu Gomu no Mi’s original name is Hito Hito no Mi Model Nika (Human Human Fruit Model Sun God Nika). So, what is the Hito Hito no Mi devil fruit?


Basic Information about Devil Fruits

3 type of Devil fruit

Originally there are 3 types of Devil Fruits. 

First, Logia-type fruits give the user the ability of different natural elements. Also, the user gains the ability to transform into that element making them almost invincible without Haki. 

The second is Zoan-type fruits. This type of fruit turns the users into different animals. However, there are two variations to this rule. One, sometimes the fruit can turn animals into humans too. The other one is Mythical Zoans. This variant is the rarest Devil Fruit and turns the user into a Mythical being. 

The third type of Devil fruit is Paramecia type Devil Fruit. This can give the users different abilities. The powers depend on the fruit and don’t fall into the last two categories. This is the very basic information related to the fruits. Now, let’s dive deep into the details of our topic.

The Hito Hito no Mi in English is called “Human Human Fruit”. This fruit has different models and users throughout the series. The fruit is a mythical Zoan-type devil fruit.

  • Like other Zoan-type fruits, it has a will of its own. As Gorosei said for 800 years the fruit might have rejected them. That is why the Government never got the Devil Fruit.
  • Most possibly this was the fruit of Joyboy. In Wano, Zunesha said he had heard the Drums 800 years ago. So Joyboy might be the last person to awaken the Hito Hito no Mi; Model- Nika. As Zunesha was a friend of Joyboy it may be the truth that he heard it then.

This fruit gives Chopper many special powerups. First of all, Chopper has created 7 points to fight. These forms are almost like Luffy’s Gears but they are triggered by eating Rumble balls. The strongest point is Monster point. 



Our next Hito Hito no Mi user is Sengoku, the ex-fleet Admiral. His fruits name is Hito Hito no Mi; Model- Daibutsu. This is a Mythical Zoan fruit which is even rare than normal Zoan fruits. Sengoku because of his Devil Fruit ability was called Buddha Sengoku. So that fruit specifically gives Sengoku the Godlike qualities of Buddha.

While using this fruit’s power Sengoku turns into a gigantic  Golden Buddha. He can throw strong shockwaves through his palms. As we have seen during Marineford those shockwaves were able to match the shockwaves of Whiteebeard’s Devil Fruit. Not much is revealed about the fruit yet still.

So far any special moves or attacks are not specified. However, this makes Onimaru a big human who can fight really well. He defeated many strong samurai and stole their weapons. Also, he fought Zoro for a bit too. So he has also many hidden potentials.
