Boa Hancock’s Mero Mero no Mi Devil Fruit officially revealed
There’s a lot of stuff that has yet to be revealed in the world of One Piece mainly because we tend to follow Monkey D. Luffy and the Strawhat pirates including little bits and pieces of other characters like Boa Hancock.
Thankfully thanks to new updates from Shuesha we’re getting new stuff like a good look at Boa Hancock’s Devil Fruit known as the Mero Mero No Mi.
Check out what it looks like down below:
So what’s the story behind the Mero Mero no Mi fruit?
The Mero Mero no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows a range of attacks which use emotions of lust or perversion to transform opponents into stone. It was eaten by the former Warlord Boa Hancock, who was force-fed it by a World Noble. The major strength of the fruit, as demonstrated by Boa Hancock, is that the user is able to transform those who lust or love after the user into stone in varying degrees by using their “dirty thoughts”. Victims that have been completely turned to stone are incapable of consciousness and susceptible to physical damage unless the user de-petrifies them. Petrification can also be achieved through physically striking an opponent, although the only area that is turned to stone is the contacted area, as opposed to the entire body. The power also extends to nonliving objects, including Pacifistas.
The powers of the fruit can cause any victim(s), regardless of gender, with feelings of lust to fall for the fruit’s petrification effects. Since Hancock possesses near unparalleled beauty, enticing men with her powers takes very little effort while with women she will use more flirtatious and “cutesy” behavior.
Apparently, once the petrification takes effect, the victim or victims experience a state of suspended animation where their subjective sense of time is completely halted by the fruit’s power, effectively making it look to them as though time itself has stopped from the victim’s point of perspective, and will last this way unless Hancock chooses to relinquish their petrified states.
