The real name of this Devil Fruit is Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika. This Devil Fruit seems to be one of the things that scares the Gorosei. The reason is, they say that this Devil Fruit has the strongest power in the world, so they need to change it. However, there may be another Devil Fruit that Gorosei is also afraid of.
Yami Yami Devil Fruit terrifies Gorosei
Of course, geeks already knew about the Yami Yami Devil Fruit. This is a Logia-type Devil Fruit where the user can control darkness. Marshall D Teach aka Blackbeard is the owner of this devil fruit. He obtained it after killing his teammate, Thatch, who got it first. So far, it is not very likely that the word Yami Yami is shown in the One Piece story.
However, there are several other possibilities that users have presented. An example is the Black Vortex technique, where he will create a black vortex capable of pulling his enemies towards Blackbeard. During Blackbeard’s battle with Ace, Ace was unable to do anything as he was injured using this technique.
Blackbeard can also “neutralize” an enemy’s Devil Fruit powers by absorbing it into the dark. And what’s extraordinary is that the Black Hole technique is capable of sucking anything into the black hole it creates. Although Oda Sensei rarely lets Blackbeard use this technique, that doesn’t mean his Devil Fruit isn’t dangerous.
We have seen how extraordinary Nika’s Devil Fruit awakening is. Granted, we still don’t know if Blackbeard has awakened his powers. However, when he succeeded in doing so, there was a lot of speculation among fans saying that the immense power of the Yami Yami Devil Fruit could pose a big threat to Gorosei. In fact, not only for the Gorosei, the threat could be for the whole world.
In this case, the horror of Yami Yami’s dark power that could engulf or destroy the entire earth would be terrible. This may also be why Blackbeard later became Im’s target, alongside Luffy, Shirahoshi, and Vivi. I probably know what Yami Yami’s great potential is and why he becomes a threat then.
Become Nika’s equal opponent
Fans have long raised suspicions that Blackbeard will be the last opponent that Monkey D Luffy faces in the One Piece story. Blackbeard is also known to have a desire to go to Laugh Tale and claim the title of pirate king. That’s why he then started stealing Trafalgar Law’s Road Poneglyphs.
There is an interesting speculation that Blackbeard could make it difficult for Luffy in his fight. What difficulty means in his speculation? Blackbeard is said to be able to stop Luffy’s Nika fruit powers, thanks to the power of the Yami Yami no Mi Devil Fruit he has. Furthermore, Yami Yami has the ability to absorb the opponent’s Devil Fruit power
Nika’s Devil Fruit may be the most powerful in the world, as revealed by Gorosei. However, with the Yami Yami no Mi fruit’s ability to neutralize or absorb the Devil Fruit power, of course this will make Luffy difficult to face Blackbeard. With Blackbeard reportedly succeeding in nullifying Luffy’s Hito Hito no Mi powers, Model: Nika, this means that Luffy has to fight even harder against Blackbeard.
This fight against Blackbeard could be the biggest in One Piece history, beating both the time when Roger and Whitebeard fought or the events in the Valley of the Gods. Luffy is forced to use all his powers, including his Devil Fruit powers. In fact, it’s possible we’ll see the use of Gear 5 and even Gear 6 that many fans talk about.
Nika Can “Delete” Yami Yami
Nika’s Devil Fruit also seems to be the only Devil Fruit that can match the tremendous power of Yami Yami. And what’s interesting is that there was a theory that popped up among fans a while ago. In theory, it is explained that Nika’s Devil Fruit will have an ability similar to Yami Yami’s, namely “erasing” the opponent’s Devil Fruit powers.
The theory explains that this comes from the Japanese word “Gomu” which means rubber. Rubber itself, as he explains it, is “a material made from latex taken from the rubber tree, rich in elasticity. Sulfur is also added and used together with rubber for various industrial and everyday uses. Now there are also synthetic rubber made from petroleum.”
An interesting keyword is ‘sulphur’, this may be why Oda always gives Luffy more fire in each attack when he is in the New World. The reason is, in the real world Sulfur is often identified with fire. An example is Red Hawk, part of Gear 4 Luffy aka Red Roc technique.
Rubber is also often used as a material to make erasers and this is also part of the theory that Luffy can “erase” the power of Yami Yami in the fight against Blackbeard. So if Blackbeard can absorb Luffy’s power then Luffy will be able to erase Blackbeard’s power.
While the theory may sound strange, this isn’t the first time the One Piece Devil Fruit has had strange powers. For example, Kalifa’s Devil Fruit has the ability to “cleanse” or “wash” humans, just like Tsuru. Or Doflamingo’s ability to control things using his subject matter. Of course, it would be interesting if in the final battle, Luffy and Blackbeard used their best to fight each other without any Devil Fruit powers. What do you think of?
