I wonder, how do people know which fruit to eat? I mean, is it possible to know what exact abilities are provided by a perticular fruit? Or you learn this only after you've eaten it?

One learns it only after eating it.
That's the most interestong thing about Devils Fruits. Else everyone would want the coolest powers.
BTW, that was explained in recent chapters. Kaku and Califa ate the fruits and they didn't know the names of those.

I think they just guessed it, because they just happened to have a fruit laying around, and his body suddently turned freaky. :p

Yeah, that makes sense. But then, another question. What happens if you eat a fruit and then another fruit? Do your powers change?

I've just checked it.....Shanks seems to know which fruit it was......but it's true that the name of the Fruit is called 1st time after luffy streches the first time.....[br]Posted at: May 03, 2006, 09:00:27 AM_________________________________________________

Well, i see Naruto as a well-rounded story, and One Piece's story isn't all that important, what makes it fun is the fact that Oda is just really good at depicting action scenes, has too much humor for a single person, and emotional scenes too, like Robin's "i want to live!" thing this very arc, in short, One Piece is great for getting to the readers feelings. Oda makes you hate a person from the depth of your soul, and then uses exactly what you want to happen to him. Not slice him up, nor capture him, but this one kind of pain only fists and faces can give you... bla, this post sucks, but everybody that knows one piece should know what i mean :p

feelings feelings , and ultra uba super cool dialogs and text throwing. The personality of the characters is so well exploited and showed. I'm just fond off. I even cryed watching the Anime. Me a freakin dinosaure cry to an anime? Gosh that was just too much to stand ( Arlong Parc arc ).

Hehe and the last thing i've just seen ...
Smoker : I have a message for those old geezers at the world government ...

Khal, yeah, you have a point there. There is a book by Gerard Jones, 'Killing Monsters', it's about psychology processes which make people watch violent movies and so on. Whan you've said is just what he talks about during the whole book, with lots of examples and explanations. =) Looks like Oda is an expert in mental matters 8)))

- and this he calles 'make-belief violence', which is essential for emotional relaxation 8)

Just because I dislike claiming things (even if they may be true) without proof:


There you go. Eat two and explode.

Also, if you expand on what's said there some, you'd see that they have scientists studying Devil Fruits, so its not that big of an assumption that there IS a way to find out what power they grant before they're eaten.

I have another question regarding devil fruits. How do the one who ate the fruit instantly know what the fruit will do? I guess with Luffy there was change in his body but what those zoan types and the lightning and fire types. Also how come Kalifa already knows the different applications of her powers. Based on the manga it didnt seem like they have enough time to learn and discover what their new powers where, the Straw Hats were right on their tails.

they don't know hwat they can and can't until they tried it.....

crokodile said that he was training like there's no tomorow...just to get new Attcks and abbilities.....

Kalifa and Kaku don't even now 10% of their new powers.....

that's why luffy is so damn strong....he fights all the time....so he get better.....and better....

SPOILER

for example.....he just let us see his new Gear 2/3 form.... how long is he able to do that.....nobody(just ODA) knows.....

but the important thing is...that he couldn't do it right from the start....

maybe later in the Manga we gonna see Kalifa again...because her powers are huge......if she tries and get praktice....

she could possible clean what ever she wants.....fire....water....pain.....damage....and so on......

Gear 2, he was able to do that only after the first part of his fight with Bruno. All gear 2 is, is Luffy's "flashy" name (you know how he REALLY like cool looking/sounding stuff) for being able to apply the movement the CP9 does (if forget the name of it, the hitting 10 times before moving thing) to everything he has, as well as making his combat moves not actually hit but letting air shockwaves (like the CP9 leg kick i forget its name again). Hence why he thanked Bruno for being able to encounter him first, confirming it was possible to move like that and to see exactly how he did it.

Gear 3 i dont know though, it could be a pre-existing form, or just an application of everything he learned from the CP9 movement and compression and such, not much is known bout how it actually functions enough to make guesses.

The speed is Soru and the leg kick is Rankyaku.

Gear 3 is a mystery at the moment...we know it strikes a powerful blow and he turns chibi...that's about all. We'll probably get an explaination about it when he uses it next time.

[kind of off topic:]
And here's a random question: Can a rubberman explode? If Luffy were to somehow eat (or tricked into eating...'cuz, c'mon, he's a moron and even accepts food from strangers) a 2nd Devil's Fruit, would he really die? "Explosion" is too vague a term I think. If its an explosion like, the body expands beyond the normal physical limits and therefore "boom", would Luffy actually die since he's rubber and as far as we know, he has no limit to his expansion? Or is it more like a reactor boom and everything blows?

I somehow see someone trying to off Luffy with a 2nd Devil's fruit...I kind of hope not though, since obviously he has to survive, and he'd become even more powerful.

He has a limit, Oda said 200 meters (or was it feet?)

However it isn't a kind of "BOOM" explosion, it's more of your apendix blew up, internal bleeding you die kind of thing.
Basically the two demons fighting tear up your body from the inside out, to create an explosion like death.
*edit or like the little cute alien that burst out of peoples chests in the movie series ironically titled "Alien"*

I don't think Gear 2 is just the 6 forms though... seems like Luffy physically changes and Vulcanizes/releases steam thus changing his own physical make up.
I dunno, I guess we'll have to watch the anime for more clarification.
