If you are a die-heart One Piece fan, you know there is a mystery that manga has been keeping for a long time. In OP, the concept of Kid’s Devil Fruit gets attention time and again. This is mainly because it is the Devil Fruit that provides powers to many characters. For example, Luffy gets his elastic body from a Devil Fruit. Likewise, the evil abilities of Kaido are also a result of consuming the Devil Fruit. However, what we do not know is the name of the Devil Fruit that Eustass Kid took to get his powers.
Now, that wait is finally over. The creator of the popular manga series has spoken up about the highly-speculated topic. Let’s take a detailed look at what he had to say.
Eiichiro Oda Reveals Kid’s Devil Fruit
One of the world’s longest-running anime and manga happens to be One Piece. The show has created a legacy for itself since the late 90s. Both the ongoing manga and the anime are performing wonders on various platforms. While the story goes through many ups and downs spontaneously, the series has kept Eustass Kid’s Devil Fruit a mystery for a long time.
It is a usual course for One Piece mangaka, Eiichiro Oda, to interact with fans online and answer their questions. In one such live QnA, Eiichiro was taking fan questions when the mystery of Kid’s Devil Fruit came into light. One fan commented to ask Eiichiro about the name of the Devil Fruit that gives Eustass magnetic powers. Even Oda was surprised to find that he had never revealed the name of the Devil Fruit.
Oda first took a few moments to joke about how ignorant he has been for the past thirteen years. He says that he thought everyone knew about Kid’s Devil Fruit already. Thus, he went on to talk in detail about Kid’s power abilities.
The Magnetic-Magnetic Fruit
The secret behind Kid’s powers is a Devil Fruit named Magnetic-Magnetic Fruit. This fruit helps him in striking electrical blows from his hands that are magnetic in nature. Thus, it seems fair that the fruit also resembles the properties of a magnet. Moreover, Eiichiro Oda also shares keen details about Kid’s powers. He says that there are many hidden abilities that come with the use of Magnetic-Magnetic Fruit.
One Piece will shortly explore all the dynamics hidden behind Kid’s strengths. Meanwhile, One Piece fans cannot stop wondering what more is to come in the upcoming story arcs. Kid is already powerful enough to battle Big Mom alone. What will happen when we unlock his fullest potential in the future?
