    It's going to be a pop green. Luffy is going to leave the fruit near to Ussop's bag before they go to the bed and Baam!!! Ussop will have a powerful kabuto from that moment on.

    I'm thinking that the fruit will be eaten by whoever joins the Straw Hats after Jinbe.

    I'd say it might be one of those:

    - Luffy
    He could be stupid enough to eat it, and he might survive since we still don't know why Blackbeard was able to have two DF.
    If it's because he's a D, that would mean that Luffy can too, since he's also a D.

    - Sanji
    He's a cook, his element is clearly fire, and he's been falling behind in the Monster Trio, so he's a good candidate.
    My only points against it is that he's the best swimmer, and his "dream" is to find All Blue...

    - Momo
    I'll be honest, I'm not sure why, but I think that Momo might do it.
    Being a kid, he could be stupid like Luffy was when he was a kid, and he could try to eat that DF.

    He would then become a "Fire Dragon", or something like that...
    He might be able to survive thanks to the fact that the "Dragon DF" he has was manufactured, and wasn't a real one... who knows...


    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    He currently is holding hostage Caesar Clown. Caesar has enough expertise about devil fruit to implant them in inanimate objects, and extract them when desired. He also is the only person in the world capable of creating SAD, the key ingredient in making artificial devil fruit. The Strawhats are looking for the factory where those artificial devil fruit are produced. There is someone there to either extract the gomu gomu no mi from Luffy, or "safely" implant a second devil fruit power, and they are headed to a facility potentially containing supplies and equipment Caesar would need to do this. The plot has converged for Luffy to either swap powers, or gain a second, without the normal risk.

    Personally, if he does get the fruit, I'd rather he lose gomu gomu no mi. Two abilities seems like overkill. My actual inclination though is that Luffy will become the second, and last, character with two devil fruit abilities. This balances out Blackbeard, probably Luffy's last adversary before he reaching Raftel. Teach wields a darkness (yami yami no mi) that will shake (gura gura no mi) the world. Luffy will counter with a passion and determination (mera mera no mi) tempered by flexibility (gura gura no mi).

    Mera mera no mi is one of the stronger known devil fruit, comparable to Kuzan's hie hie no mi, if used to it's fullest potential. I can't imagine Luffy's third in command gaining a fruit that powerful. Sanji then would be arguably the strongest Strawhat, by a fairly wide margin, with the mera mera no mi, armament haki, observation haki, powering Sanji's "black leg" to almost obscene levels. The same could also be said about Zoro. Add mera mera no mi to his swordsmanship and haki, and he arguably is the strongest Strawhat, if not the strongest over all character.

    At this stage in the story he still wouldn't be. Later down the line.
    Considering there are Shanks and his crew etc. various others who are probably not scared of Luffy in power.

    If Sanji gets the mera mera no mi then his kicks would be reinforced with armament haki, wreathed in pillars of flame. He also would be a logia user, only other haki users would be able to defeat him. Giving Sanji (or Zoro) so much raw power would be an ass pull of epic proportions. The combination of his martial arts ability, haki, and fire logia would give him the potential to be an admiral level character. It is early enough in the story that Sanji would have the time to gain experience, hone his ability, and meet that potential. The only thing capable of stopping him would be plot convenience. I have to doubt Oda would take that route.

WB, Aokiji, Akainu, Kizaru are batshit strong with just one DF and Haki... Why Luffy needs to have two DF ? I don't get this obsession

    Again, BB's body is special, hence why he was able to handle two DF, we don't know the details, but Marco clearly said that BB is different from the others
    I think that the only reason Blackbeard was able to have 2 DF was because he is a D.
    And Luffy is also a D, so he has the VERY SPECIAL power of being able to have more than 1 DF.

    That would be very bad, if the main character is 1 out of a million with a special power and that he doesn't use it.
    So, I think that, if it's revealed that indeed it's because BB was D that he could get multiple DF, there's no way Luffy won't get a second one as well.

    Marco outright said that it's because of his body, never mentioned anything about the D, but about his body, and it kinda makes sense since that punk could tank some serious blow like it was nothing, while Luffy's tanking abilities are mainly due to his Gomu Gomu no Mi

    Well, maybe he has the body of a D, which Luffy would have too.
    Who knows?

    I was under the impression Teach did not have the will of D. I may have misinterpreted Whitebeard's speech, but that is a possible implication of saying Teach is not the one, a page after Roger explained D. I have always thought he meant that Teach may be D in name, but does not have the "Will of D", as Roger explained it.

    Considering we still do not nearly enough about what WB heard from Roger, it is a bit hard to specify it but i guess WB was always under the impression that Blackbeard could be one of those who could carry Roger´s will and the 800 years history on his back but i guess he understood that BB, despite having the initial D, is not befitting because of his deviousness, his cowardice and so forth. That still does not change the fact that BB is still a D.

    What's wrong with the idea of Luffy saving the fruit for someone he thinks is good enough to eat it and join the Straw Hats?

    That's about what I think too; he is a D, but does not necessarily inherit the Will of D. Kind of a tangent on my part, I'm not sure how much D. factors into this discussion. It may, it may not. We all know so little it is hard to reach any conclusions. As far as I can remember there are not even any hints about D, only that it exists, and holds meaning.

    There is meaning in passing on Ace's fruit. Whether big or small, it was part of Ace's identity. The mera mera no mi is an heirloom of his brother, a remembrance of his legacy as a pirate. Passing on such an heirloom symbolically will represent Luffy passing his brother's memory on to someone else. The mera mera no mi could also be taken as Ace's will, the fire of his resolve. Passing that to someone else would be a very meaningful thing. It seems rather unlikely that Luffy would do something with such great symbolic meaning for an as of yet unknown character.

    There is meaning in Ace's ability respawning, just like there was meaning in Teach gaining Whitebeard's ability. What that meaning is will depend, in the end, on what actually happens to the mera mera no mi. Teach seizing the gura gura no mi was more than a power up. The Whitebeard Pirates were a family, Edward Newgate was the father. Teach was the prodigal son; disgraced, exiled, and pursued by his brethren. A son killing his father, and seizing his power, is a common archetype in many creation myths. Teach filled that archetype by killing Whitebeard, stealing his ability, and seizing his territory. Hopefully whatever happens to the mera mera no mi can also has some meaning, rather than just a power up for one of the supporting characters.
