One Piece Devil Fruits & Its Types – All You Need To Know

The world of One Piece is filled with a variety of mysterious, magical fruits called Devil Fruits.

These fruits grant their eaters amazing powers and abilities, but also come with a hefty price—they make the eater unable to swim in water!

In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the different types of Devil Fruits, as well as some of their characteristics.

Types of Devil Fruits

Types of Devil Fruits

What makes this concept of DF amazing is the attention given to it and its powers. Instead of having just one type of fruit, there are multiple types in One Piece.

This makes them very interesting and amusing.

There are a total of three main categories of Devil Fruit in One Piece:

  • Paramecia
  • Logia
  • Zoan

Each type has its own unique properties and powers. There is no way to differentiate between the fruits before it is consumed as all DFs have different shape and colors.

The only way to categorize it is to consume it and identify its powers. By doing so, the people in the world of One Piece have identified three different types.

Paramecia Type Devil Fruits


Paramecia Fruits grant users varities of supernatural and superhuman physical abilities such as superhuman strength or speed, or the ability to manipulate elements such as fire or lightning.

Examples include Luffy’s Gum-Gum Fruit, Buggy’s Chop-Chop Fruit, and Robin’s Flower-Flower Fruit.

These are the most common type of devil fruits in the One Piece series. However, even though they are not rare, they provide pretty impressive and unimaginable powers to the ones who eat them.

For example, certain devil fruit allows its user to turn people into toys. While another Paramecia fruit allows its user to generate loads of deadly poison from their body.

To put it in simple terms, the Paramecia fruits provide any ability that is not transformation based. This is why the Paramecia are one of the most powerful devil fruit types.

Zoan Type Devil Fruits


Zoan Fruits are one of the rarest type of Devil Fruit; they allow users to transform into animals or hybrid animals/humans.

Examples include Chopper’s Hito Hito no Mi (Human) and Orochi’s Hebi Hebi no Mi (Snake).

The Zoan type has three sub-types which are as follows:

  • Ancient
  • Mythical
  • Artificial

Ancient Zoan

The ancient Zoan type devil fruits grants its users the power to transform into ancient animals like dinasours and mammoths that have gone extinct.

The people with Ancient Zoan abilities are usually completely restricted to superhuman physical strength and endurance.

Other than strength, stamina and endurance, these type do not provide any supernatural powers.

Characters with Ancient Zoan DF: King (Pteranodon), Queen (Brachiosaurus), Jack (Mammoth).

Mythical Zoan

The mythical Zoan fruits allow its users to transform into mythical beings. This includes dragons, gods and phoenix. These are very rare and are the most powerful devil fruit there is.

It grants its user several powerful attacks and other abilities such as healing and flame generation.

We only know a handful of Mythical Zoan Devil Fruit users, and every one of them are insanely powerful.

Characters with Mythical Zoan DF: Marco (Phoenix), Kaido (Azure Dragon), Sengoku (Buddha).

Artificial Zoan

The S.M.I.L.E fruits are the artificial zoan fruits that Casear Clown developed. While it is even capable of mimicing a mythical zoan type, their success rate is very low.

Only 10% of the people who consume it will gain powers and abilities. The other 90% are doomed to loose their ability to show emotions other than laughing. They also won’t be able to swim even though they never got an ability.

What makes these fearsome is that the people who consume it can transform into different types of animals that are in existence and use its powers.

For example, a person who can transform into a scorpion will gain the ability to poison people.

Characters with Artificial Zoan DF: Momonosuke (Azure Dragon), Speed (Horse), Gazelleman (gazelle).

Logia Type Devil Fruits


Logia Fruits allow users to transform into an element such as fire, smoke, ice or darkness. These transformations can be used for both offensive and defensive purposes.

Examples include Akainu’s Magu Magu no Mi (Magma) and Kizaru’s Pika Pika no Mi (Light), Smoker’s Moku Moku no Mi (Smoke).

The logia type was introduced as the rarest devil fruits in One Piece. However, the introduction of mythical zoan type meant that the logia had to become the second rarest.

They were also supposed to be the strongest type that allowed users to be immune to any type of physical damage. But, the introduction of Haki pretty much nullified this unfair advantage and made them pretty normal.

Regardless, the people who have logia powers are impossible to defeat without haki, which is still kind of overpowered.

Characteristics of Devil Fruits

Devil fruits are very unique concept in the world of One Piece. There can only be one fruit of a type. For example, there is only one Gum-Gum fruit in the entire world.

However, if a DF user dies, the fruit reincarnates again randomly somewhere on the world.

Additionally, their powers also affect the user’s clothes. This is evident when we see Smoker turning into smoke among with his clothes.

Lastly, all DF have one thing in common: if you try to swim while eating one you will sink like a stone!


Devil Fruits from One Piece offer some truly incredible powers—but not without a price! Eating a devil fruit makes swimming impossible for its user forevermore.

But despite this downside, many characters have chosen to consume them anyway in order to gain access to their awesome abilities!

Hopefully this blog post has helped give you a basic overview on the different types and characteristics of these mysterious fruits so that you can better understand them when you watch One Piece!
