The 20 strongest Devil Fruits in ‘One Piece,’ ranked

It only took us almost 30 years to truly know Luffy's fruit.

Devil Fruits are some of the most iconic items in the Shonen genre, they’re the core power source in the One Piece universe, capable of giving anyone who consumes it a unique ability.

Recommended Videos

At the time of writing, there are over 150 Devil Fruits in the One Piece universe. Some are owned by lowly minions, while others have allowed some legendary pirates to dominate the high seas. Devil Fruits are so memorable because of the sheer variety of powers they bestow. While some give regular abilities like super-strength or increased endurance, others give the user unique abilities, ones not seen in any other show. 

In general, the fruits are placed under specific categories: Paramecia, Zoan, and Logia. Paramecia are the most common and diverse of types, Zoan users are capable of turning their body into a hybrid or fully shifting into an animal, and Logia devil fruits, on the other hand, are the rarest of the bunch and usually the most powerful. With that in mind, here are the strongest Devil Fruits in One Piece. 

20. Shadow-Shadow Fruit

The Shadow-Shadow fruit could be one of the strongest in the series – if only it were wielded by someone other than Moria, but I’m still adding it here. Essentially, the Shadow-Shadow Fruit bestows upon the user the ability to manifest and control shadows of living creatures as if they were tangible and physical beings. Moreover, the user can even create zombies by transferring shadows onto anybody.

The person whose shadow was stolen enters a two-day coma and also loses the ability to be in the sun, light, or even cast any reflection. Perhaps the fruit’s most significant weakness, however, is that salt immediately cancels out this power, as it is the natural element of the sea—the Devil Fruit users’ biggest counter.

19. Barrier-Barrier Fruit

During the Dressrosa arc, we encounter one of the most efficient and helpful Devil Fruits in the entire series: the Barrier-Barrier Fruit. Currently wielded by Bartolomeo, this Paramecia-type fruit grants the user the ability to create a nearly impenetrable barrier, boasting an extremely effective defensive power that was even able to protect Orochi from Oden at some point in history.

Surprisingly, it can also serve as an offensive tool by launching the barrier to generate an extremely powerful strike or even deflect attacks from others. However, it does have its weaknesses, as it cannot withstand attacks that surpass its capacity. Nonetheless, this remains one of the most powerful fruits in One Piece, with very few attacks able to tear the barrier.

18. Woods-Woods Fruit

Unsurprisingly, this list is comprised of quite a few admirals. Despite only appearing briefly, we were able to witness exactly how strong the Woods-Woods fruit truly is – especially when you consider the fact that it is wielded by Ryokugyu, who tends to flee from fights. But hey, he became an admiral and that’s likely due to possessing this exact devil fruit.

Ultimately, he can create, control and transform into flora with this Logia-type devil fruit. While it may not seem incredibly powerful, Ryokugyu can create large-scale attacks and even drain liquid from people’s bodies using roots. This fruit also has amazing regenerative abilities, able to heal the user and even protect itself against other logia-type fruits, including fire and ice.

17. Ice-Ice Fruit

It comes as no surprise that all the admirals possess unbelievably strong Devil Fruits, including Kuzan. The Ice-Ice Fruit is undoubtedly one of the most powerful in the entire One Piece universe, especially when wielded by someone as knowledgeable and powerful as Kuzan. This Logia-type fruit essentially allows its user to control, create, and transform into ice at will.

While it may seem obvious that it has some weaknesses, notably high temperatures, Kuzan’s solid ice state can easily withstand Ace’s Fire-Fire Fruit. However, it is ineffective against Akainu’s magma abilities, as the intense heat melts the ice. Nevertheless, due to Kuzan’s exceptional skills, he managed to be in a ten-day-long battle with Akainu, even though they are direct counterparts.

16. Isle-Isle Fruit

While the Isle-Isle fruit has not yet made its appearance in the anime, manga fans have already witnessed its unmistakable prowess. Currently wielded by Pizarro, one of the captains of the Blackbeard Pirates, the fruit grants him the ability to transform into an island. That’s right, he can essentially merge into an island’s environment and manipulate it, becoming an Island Human.

This power allows him to not only grow to an immense size but also to launch devastating attacks, obliterating opponents within the island along with its various components, including mountainsides, floors, and even plants. However, the biggest drawback is that as he fuses into an island, all the attacks and damage inflicted on the environment reflect on Pizarro’s body.

15. Rumble-Rumble Fruit

Used by Enel, this Logia-type Devil Fruit gives someone the ability to generate, control, and even turn into electricity. This means they can fire out 200 million volt bolts of electricity that can fry anything they touch. By turning into electricity, they can dodge attacks and quickly move from place to place by traveling through conductive materials, making them very hard to restrain. 

In and out of the One Piece universe, this fruit is considered dangerous, to say the least. At one point, Nico Robin described the power as invincible. Ultimately, the only reason behind Enel’s demise was Luffy’s rubber body being his natural opponent, capable of bringing down Enel.

14. Press-Press Fruit

It was during the Dressrosa arc that we were introduced to Fujitora and his Paramecia-type Press-Press Fruit. Fujitora’s Devil Fruit power is one of the prime examples of an incredibly overpowered Paramecia fruit, as its wielder can generate gravitational forces of immense potency, effortlessly manipulating debris and massive ships, and controlling their movements at will.

While the power’s description might not initially seem as overpowering as some other abilities, the scope of its gravity manipulation extends even to outer space. This means that with sufficient mastery, Fujitora could hurl active meteors at his opponents or manipulate objects virtually anywhere. The ability to attract and repel objects of significant size underscores the formidable nature of this fruit, particularly when wielded by a skilled user.

13. Glint-Glint Fruit

Kizaru Borsalino One Piece

The Glint-Glint Fruit is used by Kizaru and classified as a Logia-type Devil Fruit. This fruit bestows upon him the ability to control, generate, and transform into light, affording him a range of distinctive capabilities. By harnessing the potential of the Glint-Glint Fruit, the admiral can emit laser beams from any part of his body, enabling a rapid succession of long-distance attacks.

Currently, we have yet to witness the complete extent of this power, but we’ve seen several of his mind-boggling attacks by now. Naturally, given its Logia classification and its wielder being an formidable admiral, one can readily deduce that the fruit itself wields tremendous destructive potential.

12. Human-Human Fruit, Model: Buddha

Sengoku One Piece

For a long time, I debated whether to add this power to the list or not, but its uniqueness and the wielder ultimately made the choice themselves. Consumed by Sengoku, this Mythical-Zoan type allows its user to transform their body into Daibutsu – also known as a Buddha. The user’s body turns into a giant, living, golden Buddha with an abnormally large body and oddly small legs.

Despite its goofy appearance, this power can certainly become quite a spectacle in the right hands. Unfortunately, we have yet to witness the full extent of this power, but we are aware that its user is capable of launching golden shockwaves by thrusting their hand forward. These shockwaves are potent enough to harm Luffy’s rubbery body and even the Blackbeard Pirates.

11. Soul-Soul Fruit

Big Mom One Piece
Image via Crunchyroll

The Soul-Soul Fruit, classified as a Paramecia type, gained renown through its user, Big Mom. This power enables the extraction of souls from those consumed by fear, a process that drains their life force. Its effectiveness is tightly tied to the wielder’s ability to instill fear in others, with Big Mom being a prime example of its true potential.

This fruit also grants the user the ability to infuse stolen souls into objects, turning them into sentient beings called “homies.” Homies range from plants to food to air, with their strength linked to the original soul’s power. Yet, a challenge lies in controlling potentially rebellious homies who can be harmed or destroyed in battles, and accidental soul-infusion must be avoided.

10. Venom-Venom Fruit

Magellan One Piece

An often underappreciated Devil Fruit of the Paramecia type is the Venom-Venom Fruit, a power currently wielded by Magellan. This fruit, though frequently overlooked, stands as one of the most hazardous abilities for both its possessor and adversaries alike. Its core ability lies in the generation and manipulation of an extensive array of poisons, spanning from mild irritants to highly corrosive and lethal toxins.

This fruit’s attributes are especially suited for individuals like Magellan, whose role as a guard in Impel Down is enhanced by its potency. However, even this remarkable power has its drawbacks. While the user is immune to the poison’s effects, consumption can lead to uncomfortable and agonizing bowel movements. Ironically, Magellan loves his food with a touch of poison.

9. Bird-Bird Fruit, Model: Phoenix

Marco One Piece

Overlooked by some, and overly hyped by others, Marco’s Bird-Bird Mythical Zoan fruit is one of the strongest in the series. This specific type of Bird-bird fruit grants the user the power to turn into a large mythical phoenix or a hybrid, bestowing him immense defensive and offensive power, allowing him to possess regenerative powers and mend even the most lethal of wounds in seconds.

While Zoan-type fruits, in general, offer a substantial enhancement in the user’s capabilities, the true power lies in more than just that. Akin to other Mythical-type fruits, this fruit bestows upon its user a unique ability—the “Blue Flame of Revival.” These azure flames enshroud the user but don’t deal him any harm. Instead, they inflict significant damage on those Marco is fighting with.

8. Fish-Fish Fruit, Model: Azure Dragon

To no one’s surprise, the Fish-Fish Fruit, Model: Azure Dragon fruit is one of the strongest fruits in this fictional world. It is a Mythical Zoan-type Devil Fruit that Kaidou consumed and it grants its user the ability to turn into a giant Eastern Dragon called an Azure Dragon, and consequently, to a hybrid form between a human and a dragon.

The fruit grants its user several supernatural abilities, including flame clouds that cause damage and allow a person to fly and lift heavy objects – including the entire island of Wano. Kaido is also able to control several elemental forces, including fire, lightning, and wind, aside from having skin so thick that hardly anything – or anyone – could cause him any harm.

7. Hobby-Hobby Fruit

Sugar One Piece

Sugar’s Hobby-Hobby Fruit is a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit that only gets more disturbing the longer you think about it. Whoever eats this fruit gets eternal youth, which seems fantastic on its own, but its secondary ability is even better. Anyone who eats the Hobby-Hobby Fruit gets the ability to turn anyone they touch into a toy, creating a contract that bounds them to her for life. Everyone else also forgets about that person’s existence.

However, if Sugar falls unconscious, then all of this is undone, and the toy is no longer bound to Sugar. Also, if she fails to immediately make a contract with a toy, it keeps its free will and, some toys have been able to use contractual loopholes to get around Sugar’s control. This makes the Hobby-Hobby fruit extremely powerful but prone to backfiring. 

6. Magma-Magma Fruit

There are quite a few magma-fire abilities and fruits in the series, but few are as powerful as the Magma-Magma Logia fruit wielded by Akainu. The user is capable of turning into molten rock and molding magma and rock at will. Aside from that, this fruit’s power lies in its offense, becoming a nearly undefeated version of Ace and Sabo’s Fire-Fire fruit and Charlotte Oven’s Heat-Heat fruit.

Much like many of the entries on this list, this devil fruit also grants its user with incredible regenerative power. Even after Whitebeard’s fatal attack, Akainu managed to survive by molding his body back by using his magma power. It has one of the highest offense techniques out of all the fruits, aside from not having any discernible weaknesses.

5. Human-Human Fruit, Model: Sun God Nika

Luffy Gear 5 One Piece

While it was believed for almost three decades that Luffy’s fruit was the Paramecia Gum-Gum fruit, the truth turned out to be even better than anyone could’ve expected. The fruit Luffy consumed as a child was none other than the Mythical-Zoan Human-Human Fruit, Model: Sun God Nika. Simply put, these fruits’ powers are bounded solely by the user’s imagination.

When wielded by capable hands, this fruit becomes profoundly unpredictable. The user can transform their surroundings into rubber or plastic, summon lightning, fire, and ice, and even alter their size at will. Paired with Luffy’s strength and genius in battle, he becomes almost invincible – until he runs out of stamina, that is.

4. Dark-Dark Fruit

Blackbeard One Piece

Although we have hardly seen it in use, Blackbeard’s Dark-Dark Logia fruit is undeniably one of the most destructive abilities anyone could have. Described as the most “evil” of fruits in the series, it bestows upon its user the ability to control darkness and its unique properties of gravity. It creates a giant vortex similar to that of a black hole that is completely void, devouring everything in its way.

Perhaps, one of its strongest abilities, however, lies in the power to nullify other Devil Fruit wielders’ powers. Almost reminiscent of seastone, a simple touch can completely stop one’s powers in an instant. However, unlike many Logia-type fruits, the Dark-Dark does not give its user a regenerative ability, meaning that in the end, if it does absorb an attack, the wielder is undeniably hurt by its potency.

3. Paw-Paw Fruit

The Nikyu Nikyu no Mi, also known as the Paw-Paw Fruit, is used by Bartholomew Kuma and is classified as a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit. This fruit grants Kuma the ability to create cat-like paw pads on his hands, which can repel or store anything they touch. Through this power, he can send items flying at high speeds, allowing him to throw opponents and deflect attacks and projectiles.

While the fruit is indeed powerful, the idea of sending opponents to the other side of the planet within seconds is truly what made him terrifying. He can also propel himself at high speeds using this ability, which might give the illusion of teleportation due to his rapid movements. Despite its undeniable power, like all Devil Fruits, the Paw-Paw fruit still has its limitations and weaknesses, but it is almost a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to the Devil Fruit arsenal.

2. Quake-Quake Fruit 

Whitebeard One Piece

Used by the late Whitebeard, this Paramecia-type Devil Fruit is said to be the mightiest Paramecia type and that it has the power to end the world, which should explain why it is so high up the list. This fruit lets the user create massive vibrations and shockwaves. These shockwaves can be used to trigger earthquakes and tsunamis, which can utterly devastate whole islands and sink any ship unfortunate enough to come into contact with them.

However, the big downside of the Quake-Quake fruit is that the effects of these shockwaves can’t be controlled or aimed, meaning that Whitebeard could have destroyed his ships or killed his men if he used it at the wrong time. Nonetheless, this fruit has the highest destructive capacity of all, albeit it may not necessarily be as dangerous as the Dark-Dark Fruit. Too bad they both belong to Blackbeard now.

1. Op-Op Fruit

The most powerful fruit in the One Piece universe – thus far – is definitely the OP-OP fruit. This Paramecia-type fruit allows its owner to conjure a white space called a ROOM. When the ROOM is created, the fruit’s user can manipulate anything caught within it in a surgical manner. This includes moving and teleporting things around and even bloodlessly separating people limb from limb and rejoining them in any combination.

However, the most impressive ability of the OP-OP Fruit is that it lets them swap people’s hearts, effectively moving their souls from body to body. If the OP-OP users are willing to sacrifice their own lives, they may give another being eternal youth via a technique called Perpetual Youth Surgery, by far the most coveted and sought-out ability in One Piece.
