One Piece manga series offers a wide range of devil fruit types, and one of the most remarkable ones is Zoan. This type of devil fruit enables the user to transform into any animal species they choose, both in their pure animal form or hybrid form, combining their features with the animal’s ones. Here, we will take a closer look at the interesting facts about Zoan devil fruits in One Piece.
According to the One Piece Fandom page, Zoan is one of three devil fruit types in the One Piece comic series. This devil fruit type gives its user the ability to transform into any animal species they desire, whether pure animal form or hybrid form. The term Zoan was first used when the Dalton devil fruit was used to attack Wapol in the Drum Island Arc.
Unlike Paramecia and Logia devil fruits, Zoan devil fruits are said to have a ‘will of their own,’ even before they are consumed. When Kaku received his devil fruit, he felt an unusual power from another world emanating from it, comparing it to gravity.
Zoan devil fruits offer three basic forms for the user:
– Human Form (人型, Hito-gata?): The user’s natural form before consuming the fruit.
– Hybrid Form (人獣型, Jinjū-gata?): A hybrid form that combines the user’s natural species and the animal species given by the fruit into an unusual form (usually in a strange way where the size is exaggerated).
– Animal Form (獣型, Kemono-gata?): A form in which the user transforms completely into the animal species granted by the fruit.
Most Zoan devil fruits come in different groups known as ‘series,’ distinguished by a specific species classification, known as ‘models.’ These groups are divided based on different animal variations; for example, Wolf, Dachshund, and Jackal are included in the Ino Ino (Dog) series.
Therefore, if you are a One Piece anime fan and wonder about the different forms and variations of Zoan devil fruits, this article has introduced you to the fascinating world of Zoan. It is exciting to see how the creator of One Piece, Eiichiro Oda, has developed the idea of Zoan devil fruits and how he has integrated it seamlessly into the storyline.
