    Wasted Devil Fruits?

    I feel like that throughout the series, there were a lot of potentially badass devil fruits that were wasted, and if you could rewrite the series, who would you give them to instead? I think baroque works in particular wasted a lot.

    I think Mr.5 Bomu Bomu no mi could've potentially been garp secret power, or could've been given to one of the strawhats such as Sanji.

    Also, Miss Valentine Kilo Kilo no mi had so much potential too, again given to a someone with hand to hand combat that jumps a lot, Sanji would've utilized it well.

    Even Miss Double Finger Toge Toge no mi had potential, for Sanji or another character as well.

    Then there's the marine captain Rust Rust fruit that were too perfect of a devil fruit that Oda wasted.

    Ideas?

    uh i disagree about the kilo kilo for someone who jumps a lot, yea that could be good whatever but the way she used it was for simpletons, things like punching and mid punch increasing the weight of your arm etc. or decreasing ur weight to increase ur speed or decreasing the weight of other things, similar to tsuchikages jutsu is how it should've been used.

    Everyone is saying they're hoping one of the strawhats get the fire fire fruit, I hope not. I like the balance of the strawhats with their fruits abilities and skills and what nots. It is a huge fan favorite and I'm sure oda will bring it back.

    Monet was a wasted fruit too, the snow snow fruit had as much potential to the ice ice as the fire fruits had in comparison to the magma.

    It still gives the same impact. Of course,

    Well, good for you guys that Oda simply has to kill a DF user to bring the fruit back. If he likes :P

    I think the fire fruit won't be seen as much in the future. We already saw nearly every possible attack.

    The one fruit i really like to see again is the bomb fruit. So cool. At the moment we see that much weird fruits i wish we could return to the basics again.

    Re: Wasted Devil Fruits?

    Well, to be fair just about any fruit could potentially be used better by someone who has superior physical capacities. The manga has made the point that a fruit is only as good as the user is so to speak. So yeah, the bomu bomu fruit and the kilo fruit could have potentially been given significantly better use than they were given had the characters in question been stronger.

    I would argue buggy's bara bara no mi is the most underused fruit though. It has endless applications at least. Buggy can attack from multiple angles, is invulnerable to sword slashes, has range and who knows what else. If he gets a little creative he can fly, look at multople angles at the same time, hear from two places at the same time.... His partial invulnerability is greatly downplayed by his incompetence. Heck, how about even rearranging his body for convenience? I am sure there would be combinations that could prove useful somehow.... Like changing his foot for a fist and punching with the strength of a kick or something. FISTKICK MOTHER*****R! Or some variation of swordsmanship where he changes his arms for legs with hands at the end so as to have longer arms when swordfighting.... Although range is not an issue to him to begin with.

    There was also the similar fruit that split that guy into balls or something.... that sounds like it could be useful somehow.

    Captain Very Good of the Marines. He got stomped by Rob Lucci though. Which is isn't so bad if you're at the Captain Level.
    But yeah he could probably use his fruit better.


    I remember now it was the Beri Beri no Mi that was eaten by Captain Very Good.

    I just hope we haven't seen the last of Virgo. Is his devil fruit ability even confirmed yet?

    There's the stuff sticking to his face, and Sanji saying he might be made out of metal. Aside from that he hasn't been seen using anything but Rokushiki and Haki (if I remember correctly).

    As far as we know vergo simply did not have a DF ability at all. Vergo did have remarkably powerful haki so I think sanji's comments were an allusion to that. Perhaps it was a combination of armor haki and tekkai though.

    Well what stuck to his face was a hamburger and a spoon, so that's probably just his bad tablemanners, I think he's simply a Haki-beast, combined with rokushiki

    Rokushiki? Which ones. It seems the Marines only ever use Finger Pistol, Geppo & Soru.
    We havent seen anybody outside of Cipher Pol use Kami-e, Ranyaku or Tekkai in the manga.

    Yeah Vergo-sans' finger-gun is quite lethal. I was thinking his defense was a combination of his beast-haki and some sort of tekkai.

    Hmm, Kami-e and Tekkai are both inferior to haki. Using Tekkai, once cannot move except in the case of Jabra. With the sort of skill like Vergo, he may as well tank attack while counter attack attack at the same time instead of dodging like Kami-e.

    As Devil Fruit goes, Foxy's fruit can be hax if some one more powerful using it. I meant if any of the top tier get a free hit in. It could very well determine the match.

    Re: Wasted Devil Fruits?

    i think luffy will hold on to the mera mera no mi as something "sacred" much in the same way goku cherished the 4 star dragonball.
    Besides, i dont see any of the current straw hats desiring it. zoro wouldnt take it out of sheer pride. sanji spends too much time bailing everyone else out of the water (literally), though i see him benefiting from its power, to be interested in its power. nami and usopp have fighting styles that would waste its power. and Franky is a mother fucking cyborg
