One Piece ranks among one of the best manga series ever, and the introduction of Devil Fruit Users in the story allows its author the ability to expand its universe of characters and abilities. Below are 10 of the strongest One Piece Devil Fruit Users thus far.
Types of Devil Fruits
The most common class would be the Paramecia type Devil Fruit. Anyone who consumes this fruit will have the power to affect the surroundings, generate substances or alter their body.
Zoan Devil Fruit allows a person to turn into other species, mainly animals. While the rare Logia, the strongest of them all, grants power of natural elements such as ice, smoke, electricity, etc.
Even more unique than the Logia Fruit would be the Mythical Zoan type, a subset of the Zoan type, granting the Devil Fruit user a mixture of both Logia and Paramecia powers.
10 Most Powerful Devil Fruit Users
- Boa Hancock (Love-Love Fruit)
- Donquixote Donflamingo (String-String Fruit)
- Aokiji (Ice-Ice Fruit)
- Portgas D. Ace (Flame-Flame Fruit)
- Akainu (Magma-Magma Fruit)
- Kizaru (Glint-Glint Fruit)
- Marco (Phoenix Fruit)
- Eneru (Rumble-Rumble Fruit)
- Whitebeard (Quake-Quake Fruit)
- Blackbeard (Dark-Dark Fruit)
1. Boa Hancock (Love-Love Fruit)
The tag “Pirate Empress” says everything about her. A member of the fame Seven Warlords of the Sea (aka Shichibukai) as well as the leader of the Kuja Tribe, her fame as the most beautiful woman in the world is globally acknowledged. Her Medusa-like devil fruit power allows her to turn things into stone, and she has shown her capabilities when she took down a few Pacifistas on her own during the Summit War Saga.
It took the entire of Luffy’s crew at Sabaody Archipelago before the two years timeskip to take on one Pacifista. Couple with her Conqueror’s Haki makes Boa Hancock an extremely formidable queen of the pirates.
2. Donquixote Doflamingo (String-String Fruit)
An ex-world noble, king of Dressrosa, and a member of the Seven Warlords, Doflamingo ‘s string-string fruit allows him to control strings, which in turn manipulate others like puppets. A testimony to its strength was when he was able to halt “Diamond” Jozu, third fleet captain of White Beard, during the Summit War.
His strings can cut through objects easily as well, as was shown during the battle when he slashed up Admiral Fujitora’s meteorite into bits or cutting off the leg of Little Oars Jr, an abnormally large giant about twice the size of normal giants. “ The Joker,” Doflamingo’s underground nickname, took out fellow warlord cum ex-henchman Trafalgar Law as another sign of his immense power.
3. Aokiji (Ice-Ice Fruit)
Made Doflamingo retreat from the crime scene when he was about to butcher “White Hunter” Smoker at Punk Hazard and froze White Beard’s tsunami easily using his “Ice Age” technique during the Summit War.
He was able to go face to face with several of the most powerful pirates such as Marco “The Phoenix” and managed to freeze out “Diamond” Jozu, although only through Jozu’s distraction. His only defeat thus far was to Akainu after a ten-day battle for the position of Fleet Admiral.
4. Portgas D. Ace (Flame-Flame Fruit)
Blocked off Aokiji’s pursue at the Peak Battle, “Fire Fist” Ace is considered a legend by many of the pirates and marines in One Piece. The son of the now-deceased Pirate King Gol D.Roger, second fleet commander of the White Beard’s crew and sworn brother of main character Monkey D. Luffy, Ace has unfortunately died in battle. Ace’s fire punch can pierce through a chain of battleships while he was also able to easily fight off “White Hunter” Smoker as well as taking on the entire Black Beard’s crew alone.
5. Akainu (Magma-Magma Fruit)
Punched through Fire Fist Ace like melted cheese and defeated fellow Admiral Aokiji (now ex-Admiral) to succeed as Fleet Admiral, Akainu is one of the strongest fruit users there is. He comfortably took on Emporio Ivankov, an elite of the revolutionary army as well as Jimbei, ex-leader and member of the Seven Warlords. He managed to melt away half White Beard’s face before being beaten by the raging Yonko (“Four Emperors”) for killing Ace.
Akainu's Magma punch!
6. Kizaru (Glint-Glint Fruit)
Admiral Kizaru has the power to shape light to his liking due to his Glint-Glint Fruit. When he first appeared on Shabondy Archipelago, he blew up a giant tree with a kick and by himself took out four of the eleven supernovas of Basil Hawkins, X Drake, Urouge and Scratchmen Apoo, which each of them having a bounty of more than one billion Beri.
Lightning fast and powerful in both long and short-range attacks, Kizaru is probably the most under-rated Devil Fruit user due to his laid-back manner. In the manga series we know that Aokiji was beaten by Akainu, but can Akainu win Kizaru?
7. Marco (Phoenix Fruit)
Second to White Beard as his first division commander, Marco “The Phoenix” is a mythical zoan type fruit user. He has the ability to stopped Kizaru’s light attacks and no matter how you hit him, he will recover when blue flames surround his wounds. This may imply that besides using sea stone chains and Haki, there aren't many things that can stop him.
Not only can he recover from injuries, but Macro is also able to take flight when he transforms into a phoenix as well as the ability to alter parts, instead of the whole body, for the transformation, as in the scene when his arms were turned into phoenix wings but his legs remained to deliver those powerful kicks.
8. Eneru (Rumble-Rumble Fruit)
The nearest thing to a Thunder God, Eneru was unfortunate to have met with Luffy as Luffy’s Gomu Gomu rubber fruit made him a natural enemy. With the ability to generate electricity, Eneru can travel at lightning speed, pass through materials as well as being able to shape metal objects.
Eneru can generate electricity up to 2 billion volts, execute both short and long-range attacks (his thunder storms can easily level any city) while in the manga series he has also shown that he can use electric pulse to revive himself.
9. Whitebeard (Quake-Quake Fruit)
Did you see how Whitebeard caused a tsunami or shatter the marine fort with just a punch? The pirate with the fame and ability equal to the now decease pirate king Gol D.Roger, Whitebeard Edward Newgate is just pure power and a weapon of mass destruction. Besides Blackbeard, who has the ability to undo a fruit user’s ability by touching him, I doubt there is anyone else who can win him in hand-to-hand combat without using Haki.
At the summit war, Whitebeard was able to overpowered current marine fleet admiral Akainu with just a few punches. If not for the crew of Blackbeard and his greatly injured body, Whitebeard may have been able to defeat Blackbeard as well.
10. Blackbeard (Dark-Dark Fruit)
The ability of Blackbeard Marshall D. Teach to steal other devil fruit users’ ability is totally unprecedented and unique in the world of One Piece. This means that Black Beard can potentially house all the other top nine users’ power. His bare touch makes the ability of any other fruit user ineffective, making this is a power akin to sea stones. This allows Blackbeard to practically strip and steal powers from all fruit users, and anyone without the power of Haki will not be able to stop him.
These reasons make Blackbeard the number one user of the Devil Fruit users and worthy of the Four Emperors title.
As much as I try to rank these devil fruit users, it is by no means a definitive list as ability is nothing compared to the user’s ability and fighting skills to maximis]ze the fruit’s power.
I have also left out some of the most powerful characters in One Piece such as Luffy’s father, Monkey.D.Dragon, head of the revolutionary army, or the current marine Admiral Fujitora, due to the uncertainty of their devil fruit and its ability. Stay tuned for more updates as the story unfolds.
inu inu on April 20, 2020:
I dont personally agree with the list but i understand what he is thinking
the waffle on April 16, 2020:
this list is waffle firstly dark should be first because it the user can eat other fruits also wth is tremor on this list and love love isn't even that good if you don't love the user lamp like with the case of Luffy
Master Zephyr on February 19, 2020:
Why didn’t you guys add Luffy? Sure rubber is worst, but luffy is already good at using it........ He already has 4 gears and he combines buso haki with it..... Consider adding him
Buggy on February 11, 2020:
Most powerful is my fruit
fan luffy the straw hat on December 24, 2019:
the most powerful devil fruit is Mizu Mizu No Mi ( water fruit )
Luffy123 on October 22, 2019:
Luffy beat doflamingo. Luffy has a worse devil fruit but this was devil fruit USERS not devil fruits themselves.
One Piece Guru on September 27, 2019:
Blackbeard has no power to absorb devil fruit powers and someone who has devil fruit powers can only have one. When someone who has eaten a devil fruit dies, the devil fruit powers transfer to the nearest FRUIT. When Blackbeard supposedly "absorbed" Whitebeards power, there was a camara shot which focused on his rings, which means he was able to absorb the power with his ring, just like Zoro's sword which has absord the devil fruit power and allows you to use it..
Buddy on June 11, 2019:
Trafalgar Law’s fruit should be number 1 in my opinion. Not only can his fruit grant someone eternal youth but it can also cure incurable diseases like he did with the kids at punk hazard.
Jrpope23 on May 25, 2019:
A bit of confusion here. This is titled as a list of the top devil fruit USERS and appears to be a list of the best fruits. Enel/Eneru is among the worst devil fruit users in the series. He just has a kickass fruit. And luffy has a relatively useless devil fruit but just lool at how he uses it. Im just confused as to whether this is supposed to be a lit of fruits or users...
ALATEDDY@Yes.My on September 03, 2018:
I think Gomu Gomu no mi(Rubber Rubber fruit)is the strongest devil fruit ever
Enes on August 13, 2018:
I think you must putt Law to the list hes my favorite character and so strong
Vlad on May 20, 2018:
there is no proof blackbeard can take on a third devil fruit power.
Kuma on May 02, 2018:
where is sugar's devil fruit,the hobby hobby fruit
Anonymous on April 05, 2018:
Whitebeard is stronger than blackbeard, whitebeard was just weakened by the marines and then blackbeard striked when he was weakened by them. blackbeard is a piece of poop.
fab on January 15, 2018:
the strongest power is the light power...at a certain level the powers sort of fight each other, they are no longer attack based..you can see that in the fight between ace and blackbeard...naturally for every fruit theres some kind of contra like reflecting or what ever but in mater of strength kizaru is a logia and blackbeard is not...physically theres nothing ,,smaller" than light...so it can attack on a smaller scale than molecular level yet theres no power than can attack it in the same way...and blackbeard has a great power in the sense of he can take powers away...but the strongest power..is that of light...on a logical basis..in the series naturally it all depends on the fantasy of oda...and what he WANTS to be the most powerfull fruit...i mean in the end the gum gum fruit will prevail...against all these fruits...completly abstruse ..yet we all know it will happen this way
Megatsim on December 09, 2017:
Jozu fruit might be stronger than kizaru and Enel since he can reflect light
karan khadka on June 28, 2017:
luffy had defeated eneru so luffy must be in 3rd position...
BlondCuivrer on June 10, 2016:
1.Darkness ( cuz no DF can beat it...only Haki or strategy)
2.Quake ( its stated that it has the power 2 destroy the world)
3. Light ( Kizaru is too chill 4 this fruit... somoene with more ambition... nuff said
4. Deflect :can push anything, even pain and stress,,, too OP , we wont see Kuma till the end of the serie...
5. Magma ( cant push this until Logia awakening his explained but I bet he could destroy east blue with a shit load of volcanoes
(6/7/8 not sure)- Lightning ( Lightning speed and strenght ,.. super large perception haki cuz of electromagnetic waves
- Gravity dsont know much about it but awesome range ... meteorites are very far in space amd could be a pain 2 fight under more gravity
-Ice freeze almost everything awakened probably could frose all east blue
9 Slow Foxy is a weakling+stupid if somoene really strong like Lucci had that fruit he would OP as fuck... not even thinking about awakening
10- Law fruit.... nuff said ( sure later in the story its going 2 be more insane but for know its number 10)
Tre' Lawson on May 13, 2015:
Luffy's power should be on number 4 but why not there? He has different gears.....that make him more invulnerable to all devil fruit, correct?
Alicua on November 18, 2014:
Trafalgars devil fruit because after the new manga its the source for infinte live.
But good list
Buggy on November 15, 2014:
buggy's fruit is a great one as well as he can divide his body into a million pieces but he just sucks at using it...the author of one piece said that buggy's ability is one of the best but buggy just doesn't know how to use it properly!
:) on October 01, 2014:
Why is not Sengoku here?
.... on October 01, 2014:
Sengoku's devil fruit is more powerful than the three admiral devil fruits,when Sengoku was fleet admiral Kizaru,Akainu and aokiji was just admirals that is a good fact,and the dark-dark fruit is not more powerful than the quake-quake fruit that is very stupid thing, the quake- quake fruit make whitebeard one of the fuor emperors,dark dark fruit make blackbeard just shichibukai, the Enel's devil fruit is strong but Enel is not stronger than the admirals and Marco too,i like his devil fruit but he is not as well as admiral's devil fruits, and look the ace's devil fruit more powerful than the akoiji's devil fruit i think that is not true the admirals are the great power of navy they can't be defeat by one 550 berry pirate (that's what i think)
PirateKing on September 12, 2014:
Nah, if only Luffy had Enel's power, a rubber man wouldn't have defeated him by now. Luffy has got the haki sense, and is uberfast. Moreover as a thunder he most likely would have been even faster.
During the LuffyVSEnel fight Oda had to let Luffy win to make the manga proceed ;)
Juliane Maala on August 03, 2014:
It's surprising and great to find an article regarding the devil's fruits. :) However, I really did expect Law to be one of the top 10. Nonetheless, good job :)
Luffy on July 22, 2014:
If luffy had enel's devil fruit then whoever the rubber man is would easily defeat him
the philwild on July 18, 2014:
Put shanks in life list :)
Lex Neal (author) on June 25, 2014:
Thks for the interest shanks. Shanks is a great character in the world of One piece. For this article I would be adding only devil fruit users to the list. =)
shanks on June 22, 2014:
Add shanks!! because he has the strongest haki and to me he can defeat mihawk and whitebeard and lackbeard usin only his haki!!
Herpi on June 19, 2014:
Sorry but, Eneru's fruit is the strongest in one piece... If Luffy had it, he'd be pirate king by now.
Alex on June 18, 2014:
I'd swap Boa's power for trafalgar's.
opc1 on April 28, 2014:
Hey, nice post here! While the show continues you will have to update this hub with even stronger characters like Sabo,Shanks or Monkey D. Dragon.
