    How the DF are created?

    do you think oda will show how the DF is created, or where the tree rsides that grows them, or are normal fruits 'poisoned'? and where are they found, do the lie around randomly or grow randomly on trees? (poison theory)

    (or has he already?)

    Re: where does the DF grow?

    I personally believe that Devil Fruits were created by the individuals in the Blank Century.

    Part of some kind of hidden technology that created powerful fruits.

    Aren't the DFs just regular fruits "influenced" by the "Sea Devil"? Therefore, they don't grow anywhere.

    even if they are so, it'd be nice if oda could explain their existance further. they are one of the main stuff in the manga.
    as to why did sea devil influenced them, or are there other stuff the sea devil has to do with.

    maybe we'll hear of the sea devil in the mermaid arc

    Well, the "Sea Devil" is like a "divine" being, so they probably won't go into more detail about him...

    It's like going into to detail about God in D. Gray-man or something.

    i always prefer the original, anime generally suck if they are based on mangas (cowboy bebop= great, DBZ=suckness)

    anyway, i just read that the Davy Fight does base on Dave Jones. so such a thing like Davy Jones can (and probably does) exists (well even skypia exists so why not davy?)

    But Skypia wasn't heaven or paradise like people imagine it. Skypia was "just" a place above the ordinary seas and countries populated by ordinary people. It wasn't in any way religious or supernatural. it wasn't explained how people came up there and how they can live up in the sky but these matters were not of importance. The only extra-ordinary things up there was a guy with an extreme powerful DF and the inhabitants who had wings on their backs. But these were plot-devices / cultural references and therefore not supernatural either.

    People in the world of One Piece seems to be kind of superstitious but none of their beliefs turned out to be real (e.g. "God" was a Devil Fruit-User).
    For that reason I tend to believe that we will get a "rational" (I mean logical in the world and history of the story itself) for the Dfs. Possibly a weapon invented by the ancient kingdom maybe the source of the DFs is the One Piece itself. We don't know it. Yet.

    It was more or less speculated that the Skypians actually came from the moon (if you want, look at all of Enel's great speace journey, and see the people with wings there).

    I assume so.

    There are many things "supernatural" in One Piece, but most of them are based on logical stuffs or this world's "fairy tells". The Klabauterman is actually a real-world sailors belief that the ship actually have a spirit, and that's why they made all kinds of traditions and what not.

    My assumption is that the devil fruits grow on a special ancient tree, that's probably in Raftel or near it. A tree so big that his roots stretch down to the ocean's bottom itself. Or something of that sorts. And because its roots are in the sea water, that's why the fruits gets those effects and weakness to sea water (or something like that.. :P).


    Luffy: Sanji, prepare the lunch-box!
    Sanji: Lunch-box?
    Luffy: Yes. A pirate's lunch-box!
    *Pirate's lunch-box is for increasing one's power, so there will be no vegetables.

    That's what I intended to say.

    I totally agree and I want to add that maybe fruits blossom pretty high at this huge tree and they fell down in the water. Streams can now transport the fruit in any corner of the planet. So that's why anywhere seems to be one or two Devil Fruit Users.
    And I also go with the thought that if someone eat a Df then no other fruit with the same power will exist until the current user dies. So you can possibly figure out which fruit offers which power (BlackBeard's DF-catalogue).

    Re: How the DF are created?

    so how did someone write a DF catalogue. did asked the ppl how they looked like (quite unlikly) or did you saw the source of them. if the 2nd is really true, then we might see the DF source after all. nothing in this manga is mentioned without a later explanation.
