geheheh jimbe will find it on his journey chasing after luffy to join back up ;D
that devil fruit would suck!
it's salamander, there's no obvious battle advantage it can grant at all
i wouldn't touch it for th world
i think caesar will use it to bring a new batch of poison to life

I agree that them sailing around with orange trees would give them an unexpected orange DF one day when an orange DF user dies nearby
if oda planned that from the very start... wow
Actually that image with ussop as a lizard was a tad interesting. Of course, as an actual axolotl the fruit would be useless as that actually is an underwater animal however if oda mixes it up between an axolotl and a salamander it could be interesting. The fruit would indeed add up to ussops mobility (being able to climb to tricky locations and take even more damage) and it would suit the animal ussop is inspired on. While the fruit itself would not add to ussop as a sniper the extra mobility and the ability to climb to better locations would actually help him as a sniper. While interesting, I don't think this will happen though.
it could help zoro regenerate his eye though
if regeneration is a skill granted by this fruit, then it could be a fruit that's a slight inferior to the phoenix (slightly slower regen and no flight powers)
it could also just be standard lizard powers
it depends on what oda wants to grant this fruit
I'd love to vote in this poll, but it seems nobody isn't an option.
Well don't think anyone will end up with Smiley's DF. I actually hope that it gets destroyed in the poison cloud and reconstitutes as a poison Axoltol.. or turns to cheese.
I voted others cause I believe Caesar planted the fruit there on purpose and can recreate Smiley as many times as he likes.
It would be funny if Usopp takes it for further analysis and then when they meet Vegapunk He makes his slingshot a salamander :O
i wonder if sunny could benefit from it
as a boat, and commonly depicted by oda, more than half its surface is above the sea at all times anyway, so in boat form it shouldn't be affected by the seawater
then sunny could follow them onto land
franky's been missing since 1 chapter after the DF appeared right? that's a possibility
I don't think the idea of sunny at any time getting a fruit is reasonable. It does not even get to being practical. Sunny getting a fruit has the implication that a fruit user will be in constant contact with water. While water does not seem to actually take away abilities it does at least weaken them to a degree. Constant contact with water would result in sunny being constantly weakened. He would be a boat which would be at full power only when outside of the water. I guess it would be fun to see sunny getting legs and working as land ride but having issues with water would still make it useless.
Maybe the dragon will eat it?
It already look like a pretty funny dragon, funny enough to possibly become a new pet for the strawhat.
It's Vegapunk's personal dragon, so he's more important than the first dragon we saw, and he loves meat and looks totally stupid, so I'm sure Luffy would like him : http://www.mangahere.com/manga/one_p...0/c675/16.html
Look how stupid he looks on the low-right panel, lol : http://www.mangahere.com/manga/one_p...0/c678/10.html
So, if he becomes a pet of the crew, it's possible he could be the one to eat that DF.
Plus, if you look again, you'll see that the DF Apple is inside the Sled that he was pulling:
So, if it's his sled, he might return there.
Although, I don't see why a carnivore dragon would eat an apple
I'm not sure how a dragon would benefit from having a Salamander Zoan power, though
The only advantage would be for him to become smaller in his salamander form, I guess...

when the sunny is in the sea, only a tiny fraction is actualy immersed underwater, discounting the waves
now given how the axolotl has little frills around his head like the sunny, imagine a hybrid form where the sunny, looking like a lion/axolotl hybrid, fires the gaon cannon from its mouth
how cool is that.
Of course it does. To varying degrees but it certainly does. A boat which remains in some form or context in a perpetually weakened condition is less than practical, specially if said boat is also alive. Even if most of it is technically over water there will be a significant area constantly, endlessly, in contact with water. Its not like it is just a small area, the entire base of the ship is reasonably large. I think the sunny doing that would be less than practical. It already has a lion's mouth to shot from (which is far more dignified than an axolotl mouth even taking into consideration the sunny's lion head is basically a cartoon) and it would ruin the entire theme of the beat. I also doubt the strathats would be comfortable living in the organs of a lizard.
in its initial form, i highly doubt there will be lizard organs
when they reach the shore, they could just all get on deck and let the sunny transform into its hybrid form or fruit form and continue walking on land while they're mounted on top
and combat mode in hybrid form, not to mention self-regeneration of damage
the boat was inanimate to begin with, adding a fruit would only increase its useability

it would be far less creepy to see sunny, a horizontal boat to begin with, crawling around on all 4s than it is to see another human/humanoid doing so
True, in the boat's normal form there wouldn't be any organs but for the ship to fire from a lizard's mouth it would have to transform into either its animal (or hybrid?) forms. Wouldn't there be organs in that case?
Also, wouldn't sunny regenerating undermine franky's role as shipwright? I mean, the ship would not technically need him for repairs anymore as the ship would simply regenerate. How would upgrades work in that case for that matter? If he removes something then the ship would grow it back. Would something new be added to the ship in the same way as something which was already a part of it? And being half lizard would ultimately ruin the sunny's theme as a lion and king of beasts. I do still question to what extent it would benefit to have a boat (which is in constant contact with water) as a DF user. Wouldn't it be kinda cruel? The boat will actually feel the effects of water at all times.
