Well, SBS are canon anyway. In Marineford he was hurt by Kizaru and had to lay down for a while, I suppose you can just outdamage his ability.

Or you know, drown him.

>In Marineford he was hurt by Kizaru and had to lay down for a while

I don't remember that at all. But yeah you can outdamage his ability as Oda stated.

When he got handcuffed by Onigumo after WB had a stroke.
>>
>>154508890
Is that like how much he can regenerate at once. Like if hes taking a continuous attack?
Or that he has a flat amount he can regenerate since he got the power and after that he can only turn into the phoenix?

Yes, it's canon. But, no one should be excepted to remember everything from the SBS, and stating that the source is "the fucking manga" suggests there's a statement or scene showing that in the actual comic.
>>
>>154510934
Sabo and Garp don't have it because they for big organizations.

It's also why Zoro will never awaken it since his dream is to become the strongest swordman to support Luffy.

He heals so fast attacks seem to have no effect at all on him even pain. I think you are underestimating the fruits power.

That's a lot of assumptions dude. I don't think your headcanon about haoshoku haki is true. According to what you say, Don Chinjao should've lost it after Garp crushed his dream and even more now that Sai took his place. Rayleigh shouldn't have it.
>>
>>154511305
Not really. Everything (aside of obvious jokes) said in SBS is true to the manga and as such are valid in forming arguments, but for all intents and purposes it's just a trivia segment. One can read the whole manga without the SBS and generally not have a problem understanding it, You don't have to know the whole manga + SBS + interviews by heart to discuss it for cryiing out loud

Aokiji bleed because of Jozu and Kizaru din't damage Marco either.
>>
>>154512859
Magellan is niche and stronger than a lot of people, hence his job position. He's not equal to Luffy in strength though. I guess I would define strength as physical strength in this scenario.

>>154512971
Kuzan isn't even comparable as he's nowhere near equal to Luffy. Remember this is a spectrum, I'm certain Kuzan would still shit all over Luffy right now.
It would be interesting to see a Sentoumaru rematch.
>>
>>154512971
>Sentomaru
I really like him for some reason
>>
>>154513027
Marco was too busy screaming "POOOOOPS" and getting shot while Jozu was getting his arm frozen off. Overall the Whitebeard pirates made a terrible showing
>>
>>154513111
>Aokiji bleed because of Jozu
Yeah, I remember this one

> Kizaru din't damage Marco either.
Fair enough. I guess because both Whitebeard and Akainu took a lot of damage I kinda wanted some big named casualities.
>>

Probably like every other One Piece characters' feet; foul, sweaty and wash them once in a month
>>
>>154511534
Why didnt he hack his limbs off?
>>
>>154513188

I don't agree. For me Marco is easily as strong as Kizaru. I even believe he would win in a straight 1v1. Jozu and Ace were probably not as strong as an admiral but still close. Not possible to really judge Vista.
>>
>>154513321
Give him a few minutes.
>>
>>154513358
Ace was a faggot and only got commander title because of his 1) lineage and wbs history with Roger and 2) mera mera is super powerful. Wb was passively trying to groom Ace to be pk. Ace was weakest commander, probably.
>>
>>154513358
Marco got shot, handcuffed by a VA, shot again, and then left after failing to accomplish anything. His biggest achievement was the gay fireworks display he preformed at the start

Vista at least stood up to the world's greatest swordsman and Jozu is a bit forgivable since he spent half the fight tied by Doffy
>>
Post foreshadowing.

>>154512727
Wiper was a real nigga.

Did you forget Whitebeard had 16 commanders? By not instantly rolling over when Aokiji attacks he already proved himself better than at least some of them.

Yup, honestly Ace is underrated as fuck. Not saying he was admiral lvl but he wasn't that far off.
>>

Kizaru and Marco were equals during the Marineford war. I believe it would be decided on endurance. Marco is the one who's able to heal himself.

Is that why Kizaru destroyed him with lasers the entire war?

That's just not true. Marco din't give a single fuck about Kizaru lasers.
>>
>>154514224
That's factually untrue
>>
>>154513972
Agreed. Important to remember that during childhood fights ace didn't lose to Luffy once.
Now obviously Luffy got a much bigger grasp on what he could do being a rubber man since then, but Ace got better as well.
Not to mention the power by default that comes with being a Logia.

The only film he was completely in charge of is Strong World, which was a story he gutted from the manga and can be seen as a "what-if" scenario. The characters are canon but that's the extent of it's weight in the main series.

This is such an arbitrary stance to take. We agree the characters are real, we agree the backstories are real, but the specific events of the film are non-canon because----? I guess because Oda didn't take time out to explicitly reference their events, because goodness knows we get flashback chapters referencing every previous fight the Strawhats have gone through at least once an arc.

For one, because outside of Strong World he didn't fucking write them. He concepted some characters, gave them to the anime team and let the take it from there. This is a thing he does with stuff beyond movies too, but you're not going to start arguing that the Bandai games or stage play characters are canon parts of the universe when they exist solely for spin-off material and merchandising shit. Are color spreads and omakes canon too, because Oda drew them?

They're "canon" to the TV series, because Toei Animation produced them for it. They are separate products from his manga, which is its own separate entity from the anime. Learn the difference.

Secondly, trying to argue things like Z and Gold are canon when they can't feasibly fit into the storyline under any circumstances is ridiculous. Being adaptions that don't adhere to the source material is the very definition of non-canon.

The things that are considered to the manga are the main volumes, chapter 0, anything serious mentioned in SBS, and Monsters. That's it.

Strong World logically has to take place between Thriller Bark and Sabaody, because the entire crew is there.

At Sabaody, Zoro's wounds from Kuma reopened. He wasn't injured in Strong World.

>In fiction, canon is the material accepted as officially part of the story in an individual universe of that story. It is often contrasted with, or used as the basis for, works of fan fiction. The alternative terms mythology, timeline, and continuity are often used, with the former being especially to refer to a richly detailed fictional canon requiring a large degree of suspension of disbelief (e.g. an entire imaginary world and history), while the latter two typically refer to a single arc WHERE ALL EVENTS ARE DIRECTLY CONNECTED CHRONOLOGICALLY. Other times, the word can mean "TO BE ACKNOLDGED BY THE CREATOR'S)."

The manga is the source material.

The films are spinoffs of an adaption of that source material. They are separate from the main story, neither referenced nor fitting into the ongoing continuity of the comic. They are written, directed, animated and scripted by people who are not the original author. Many key characters in said films aren't even designed by him, and in the case of earlier films may not have involved him at all.

Things that aren't official parts of the source material aren't canon. Trivia written in volumes between chapters, things mentioned directly by the author in interviews, these are things that can be considered official information on that source material. Anything not coming from his mouth or created by him is immediately assumed to not be official unless states otherwise, because that's the nature of canonicity. It's dismissed until proven.

We can argue about Strong World if you want. That film was overseen by author to the point he had them change Robin's eye colors to fit her manga colorization, and although it has some contradictions with the manga they're relatively minor compared to films like Film Gold and Island of Strange Animals where the characters are being featured in impossible circumstances. But that is an exception, one that's been debated for years and still doesn't have a clear statement from the author, not the rule. And regardless of whether its "canon" or not it will never be directly mentioned in the source material because he doesn't want to alienate readers who've only followed his comic, making the whole conversation fucking pointless to begin with.

You can't casually change the normal interpretations of words because they don't suit your stance. That's called shitposting.

the anime is sometimes canon and sometimes not, it's on and off really. there's a lot of supplemental scenery and character interaction that doesn't exist in the manga, whether that makes it canon or not is up for debate.

This is probably the first good argument. I see where you're coming from, and I suppose my only question is what the purpose of considering something to be canon is. As you've noted, Oda is unlikely to ever truly contradict or confirm whether or not Strong World is part of the canon, but for that state to continue he has to write the story as though it could have happened. If that's the case, why would I ignore it? Similarly, I think he maintains that balance with most of the films. If they all could be true, why shouldn't I treat them as true?
>>
>>154522365
you dense motherfucker. the definition of "non-canon" is anything that's not a part of the original source material. the manga is the original source material, therefore anything that's not in the manga is non-canon.

but...breed isn't canon...

No, you're retarded because no one else struggles with this. The only people who do are the people who ride the short bus, i.e (you).

Cannon in the case of a manga with a single author, is everything included in the source material. What is the source material? Anything created by author.

Does Oda wholly write the manga? Then the writings in it are cannon.

Are the designs of characters and places made by Oda? Then those are cannon.

Does Oda create the answers to SBS? Then those are cannon answers.

Does Oda write the cover stories? Then those cover stories are cannon.

Is Oda the sole credited creator of the Anime? Did he write and draw and storyboard the movies by himself (or is the only one credited as creating them)? No? Then those are not cannon unless he specifically states otherwise.

The reason someone like Shiki is cannon is because he appeared in the original source material.

Now go and choke on that paste you were eating before you got your computer privileges back you fucking mongoloid.
>>
>>154523125
Oda wrote Strong World
>>
>>154522431
>>154522616
If Strong World was canon Luffy's bounty would be sky high and Shiki would be mentioned more often. Also, for a legend who competed with the strongest of Roger's era to get smacked around by Gear Second is laughable in hindsight.

The character of Shiki and his backstory excluding the events that set Strong World in motion are what is canon.
>>
>>154522616
>If that's the case, why would I ignore it?
There's no reason to ignore it. I actually recommend Strong World to everyone I recommend the manga to, it's a good film that compliments the manga well and gives some needed screen time as crew members to Franky and Brook before the split-up at Sabaody. Likewise, I think Baron Omatsuri and the G-8 arc are better than many parts of the manga itself and a must-watch for people looking for more One Piece after catching up with the comic.

But just because they're good supplementary materials that doesn't mean they're official parts of the manga's ongoing story or universe. Oda himself would need to come out and tell us that they are for that to be true. Non-Canon is often treated as a bad thing, because it goes hand in hand with mediocre fillers and cash-in stuff, but it doesn't inherently have less value. Just don't expect Vice Admiral Johnathan to appear alongside the rest of the Vice Admirals during the finale war.

>Similarly, I think he maintains that balance with most of the films
The only films that can arguably fit into the manga's storyline at all are One Piece: The Movie, Dead End Adventure and Strong World. The rest have an absence of characters like Vivi, Robin or Law who should be there at that point in the story, have characters who shouldn't be there like Sanji in the most recent one, or take place between arcs that don't provide extra room for an adventure to happen like Skypeia and Long Ring Long Land.

You are being to stringent. If Oda had a direct hand in it or even approved it as part of the story it is canon.
No df is allowed to be used without Oda's approval so it doesn't conflict with the main story. And all the enemies usually die so the fruits are freed up for later use. Because of this I say its canon
>>
>>154523122
I can understand your first point but what do you mean examples for the second? Look at the sheer amount of post timeskip colourspreads with the Straw Hats hanging out with animals in different locations. When would this have happened? Since they arrived in the New World they have been on a very clear path through to the present. In fact, the crew has actually been separated longer than they have been together since they regrouped.

It's very clear that many of the colourspreads wouldn't fit anywhere in the story.
>>
>>154523282

Oda participating in it doesn't make it canon.

he was not the sole writer, nor was he the director or the artist or the storyboarder.

He needs to be in full creative control, with no other creative mind interfering.

Consider the media of One Piece in the context of "does Oda have sole creative influence of the final product?"

Manga? Yes.

Cover Stories? Yes.

SBS? Yes.

Color Spreads? Yes.

Anime? No. There are other writers and artists and directors and producers and companies involved in its creation. Same thing goes for:

Movies

Video Games

Fan Fiction

Strong World suffers the same chronology issues as the others. At this point, I suppose, I'm trying to work out what the value is in calling something canon vs non-canon.

That depends on what you mean by sole writer. Oda is credited as the sole writer on the story, meaning the entire plot was his idea. The only thing done by someone else was turning that story into a screenplay.

That's the problem.
You're taking an "innocent until proven guilty" approach to it. Anything not directly stated to be unofficial material by the creator is free game, no matter how loosely involved he was or the nature of the media.

But the general consensus, not just for One Piece but practically every work of fiction on the planet, is the opposite. Until the creators given his word on something with a shaky status we assume it's not.

Hirohiko Uesaka is credited as a script writer for Strong World.

And again, unless Oda was also the Director, producer, and storyboard artist for the movie, then it is not cannon. And even if he was all of those (he wasn't), then there would still be an issue of not being the sole animator as well.

Also, see pic for writing credits
>>
>>154523420
No, it has to be explicitly stated as cannon, or needs to appear in full in the source material to be considered cannon.

Something cannot be cannon only because it has not been denied otherwise. Cannon is a membership to a club, not a inherent right of any content.

>>154523700
Being an official part of the IP is an implicit declaration of canon
>>
>>154523644
Canon isn't really the correct term to describe color spreads, they're just official drawings and not some tumblr fan art.
>>
>>154523692
Of course Oda has assistants, but they aren't credited and do not have any input into the creation of the story. Assistants serve to lessen the menial art workload, like with backgrounds.

Editors have input in the beginning of a manga, but they are setting guidelines and suggestions, and not generally actively creating material.

An editor edits existing material, they do not create new material.
>>
>>154523756
No, being part of the source material or being outright stated as canon by the author makes it canon.
>>
>>154523820
Oda's editor is the reason the Supernovas exist at all.
>>
>>154523692

By your logic. If one day Oda writes the story for a movie about a Rabbit named Jacko who lives on the planet Earth-19587 and doesn't clearly states it's not in the same universe as One Piece universe i can consider it canon?

I've also been arguing it has to be a part of the IP to be canon.
>>
>>154523575
It's just a way to distinguish the core material of an IP from various spinoffs and adaptions. It makes conversation easier when there's a common agreement with in what content has priority in discussion.

It's become a huge fucking problem in the Dragon Ball fanbase, for instance. There's so many alternate versions of Dragon Ball between the manga, anime, various sequels to the anime, fan comics, videogames, abridged series' and liberal dubs, many of which outright contradict one another on a regular basis. When you have people asking why a character from the anime isn't appearing or referenced by the manga, when information from an MMO is being used as fact, or people coming off of GT and wondering why Super is completely different, it's important to categorize shit to keep everything straight.

It's important to have an agreement on what does and doesn't classify as universal information in a franchise that's massive and spans across dozens of different formats.
>>
>>154523884

We just have one single sentence from the editor. He said "i told Oda i wanted more characters for sabaondy and he came back x hours after with the supernovaes". Doesn't mean they weren't going to happen in the story anyway.

Unless my memory is serving me wrong, the Cover pages are only not cannon if they interfere interfere with the story, which to my knowledge none on them do. Like, say there was a cover page of Whitebeard battling Akainu on some island. That doesn't conflict unless it implies that it occurs post Whitebeard's death, like if Akinu had his facial scar. It could have happened at some indeterminate point in the past.

He suggested more characters. he did not have any input as to what those characters looked like, acted or what their abilities were.

Again, the editor can make suggestions, but they do not create content.
>>
>>154523884
Not really. The editors suggested that Sabaody be "spiced up" and Oda brought up the idea of introducing a bunch of new characters, which he then designed all of them and added them to the chapter draft in like 5 hours.

Sure, canon is a method used to distinguish what materials is useful for speculation and extrapolation.

I think it's useful to view the scene between Lucci and Sabo as actually having occurred. The manga won't contradict it, and it allows us to extrapolate more about the relationship between these two characters.
>>
>>154523413
Except that doesn't make any sense post timeskip if you applied a tiny bit of brain power

Whatever, it's not like story events are displayed in the cover pages, I was just pointing out that most wouldn't fit in the timeline. Pre-timeskip had plenty of places that would work however, at least before they meet Camie.

>>154524147
Don't know. Oda may have already had the idea in his head and only decided to add it in when the editors suggested the arc be more interesting, but that's just specultion.

This is a good example of why it's good to distinguish if the anime is canon or not.

In the manga when wanda said this is wasn't too ominous, though a little suspicious. This scene made it blatantly obvious that something is going on with the minks and the full moon, and we know because oda oversees the production of the anime that this scene doesn't contradict his ideas of plans.

So do we consider supplemental embellishment like this scene canon, or non canon?
>>
>>154524151
>The manga won't contradict it
But the manga does contradict it. The events of Film Gold happen directly after Dressrosa, yet somehow has the entire crew together without any of their current allies or guests. If the circumstances of their meeting contradict the manga then naturally they couldn't have occured in the main storyline, hence they aren't canon.

That doesn't mean we can't extrapolate information on certain character dynamics from material that isn't directly canon. It's why what-if scenarios exist in the first place. However, we should clarify if that information has any bearing on the main story or not, and it does not. Lucci and Sabo haven't officially met as of this point, and neither has the crew encountered Kuzan since he's affiliated himself with the Blackbeard Pirates despite his role in Film Z. When those things inevitably happen in the manga they'll likely play out differently.

the general rule is non-canon until proven canon, but for the anime it should be the opposite. we should assume the anime is canon until something actually contradicts the manga. sort of the same way the cover stories give us veritable imagery to extrapolate theories and speculation from

The anime fucks with the manga all the time and its production is a fucking mess.
You're overselling how much Oda actually has his hand in it.
>>
>>154524308
It's non cannon until it is shown in the manga that the full moon does cause some effect on the minks, at which point this scene could been seen as an allusion to it.

We as fans can treat it as a potential hint, but taking it as cannon at this point would be getting ahead of ourselves.
>>
>>154524376
Well it has to because of the medium

A lot of in-betweens that would be cut out in the manga are necessary to make the anime cohesive and not have jarring cuts all over

>the general rule is non-canon until proven canon, but for the anime it should be the opposite. we should assume the anime is canon until something actually contradicts the manga.

No, the anime also follows the general rule you mentioned.

The thing about cannon is that anything can be made into cannon by the creator, but once something is cannon, making it not so is a retcon and looked at poorly.

As such, until something from the manga or an SBS supports something from the anime, it should be considered non canon.

I think it is a bridge too far to say that you have to assume they are cannon.

They are scenes that give potential hints at future developments in the cannon. However, since they are not confirmed yet in the source material, they shouldn't be treated as cannon.

Something not being cannon does not prohibit it from becoming cannon. But assuming something is cannon when it isn't in the source material can lead to improper assumptions and expectations.

>>154525184
The thing with the anime is that it's less about throwing in foreshadowing that wasn't in the manga and more embellishing things that already were. And getting caught up in their adaptions take on things can lead to assuming something means more than it really does.

People are doing this with Carrot right now, taking her filler scenes where she's talking with Luffy as a way to hype her join the crew, when in actuality they're padding out the episode time with stuff that'll tie back into things already confirmed in the manga (her sneaking aboard the Sunny). They gave this same treatment to Marguerite in Amazon Lily too, adding extensively to the scenes of her and Luffy together in a way that might lead you to misread her importance as a character.

When they do create foreshadowing from scratch its usually to explain something in retrospect, like Luffy supposedly discovering Gear 2 in Movie 7 after Gear 2 was a thing. That or they introduce elements that end up completely off-base, like the focus on dragons in the Ocean's Dream and Warship Island arcs in comparison to how dragons are treated in Punk Hazard, or Jonathan being Akainu's protege despite the two having nothing in common when it comes to their sense of justice or how they go about running their respective branches of the Marines.

Going back to your example, the thing with the full moon influencing Minks always already in the manga, the anime just has a lot less nuance about it.

Back when she was first introduced I was totally convinced she'd become a major ally or new crewmate. Her design stood out more than other female characters initially, nobody expected Hancock to turn out the way she did, and I didn't think the series would actually commit to a big timeskip so I figured Luffy would need someone to teach him Haki throughout the adventure.

But I was also like 14 and had only recently caught up with the manga after sticking to the dub and anime for so many years, so I was itching for actual crewmate speculation given how blatant Franky and Brook joining was. I'm sure older and more intelligent fans immediately recognized her to be the arcs Conis.
>>
>>154526950

Son, back in the day nobody was expecting Franky to join. Paulie was the best bet.
>>
>>154527006
By the time I was on board with the sub it was already well into Enies Lobby.
Only the most diehard Paulie supporters were still vouching for him after the Fukuro fight and that Vs. CP9 color spread.

I actually was around for the Brook vs. Perona shit during Thriller Bark but that was as fucking stupid as the current Monet discussion.
>>
>>154523158
No he didn't. He designed characters and gave them to the movie team.

Chapter 0 is canon sure, but if you honestly believe that PRE-TIMESKIP Luffy can beat someone on the level of Roger, Whitebeard, Garp and Sengoku then you are a fool.
>>
>>154527101
>Only the most diehard Paulie supporters were still vouching for him after the Fukuro fight and that Vs. CP9 color spread.

HAHHAHHAHAHHAHA

What fucking interaction? Their meeting was absolutely pointless. All they did was skrimish for two seconds purely for fan service. It served no purpose what so ever and is not canon.
>>
More then Paulie joining, I thought he should have just had a rope devil fruit to explain what he could do. I know there are all kinds of weird non-devil fruit abilities but the amount of rope he used to save everyone from falling at Enies Lobby was so ridiculous that just explaining it with "rope power" would have been fine.

It's not like anything would be different about him besides not being able to swim, and he doesn't swim during the events of that saga

The midget with a hammer was the original carpenter before Franky.

Robin is the one character missing from all the early drafts, which I'm guessing means he didn't originally conceive the poneglyphs until later on.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if Wano dived deeper into Zoro's past to explain how he ended up at the dojo and what his family was like.

Franky doesn't either, to be honest, but his dad specifically being a pirate makes me expect that plot point to come back in the future. Most One Piece parents are never mentioned or dead, so that sticks out like a sore thumb.

I totally expect some info about Brook's time as a soldier in West Blue too. I'm still an advocate of the theory that he and Lafitte come from the same kingdom.

>>154529664
And yet Shanks tried to stop Ace from going after Blackbeard, Kaido from going after Whitebeard and then showed up at Marineford to end the whole mess.
He's obviously trying to keep the peace.
>>154529711
Brook vs Lafitte cane-sword duel?
>>
>>154529598
Before Zou, I fought he might pick the interest of Kaido with his rumble balls, maybe even temporary joining him (likely to save the crew or something), but now that we've got Sanji rescue plot it would feel dumb.

The thing is, while Chopper has no "blank period" in his past, Hiluluk has. Maybe the miracle sakura, that originally cured him was on Wano. Mabybe we can meet someone knowing him there.

It would make sense for cherry blossoms to be in the Japan analogue, that's a nice theory.

Foretelling disaster before it happened

He knew it was going to shake the world and he also knew what Blackbeard was like. He even mentions how Blackbeard might come for Whitebeard's seat one day.

Also Chopper should show up as just a regular reindeer more. Gay as shit how they're making him run around as Kung-fu point in Punk Hazard lol when his fucking regular body would be faster.

Chopper has already developed in terms of wanting to become a monster just for Luffy, when he used to be a pussy and feared becoming a monster.

He is also hugely developed as a doctor now.
>>
>>154530886
>He is also hugely developed as a doctor now.
Chopper's role as a doctor has diminished over the years more than anything.
Ever since Law's introduction he's practically replaced him in the role.
>>
>>154529564
Usopp developed immensely in Dressrosa.

Yeah he's still a coward but that's a core character trait. He will become more brave as end of story Usopp as that is his dream.

He developed on Dressrosa in terms of being true to himself. He didn't lie against Trebol and Sugar, he loudly proclaimed he is "Usopp! Sniper of the Strawhat Pirates."

This is what lead to him developing haki imo. As he normally lies, or hides behind the mask of Sogeking. Rayleigh stated the power of haki is the act of not doubting. Sogeking's mask is a form of doubt for Usopp. We won't be seeing Sogeking ever again imo.

Also Luffy gained the grand fleet due to Usopp telling the truth as well.

Theory time

The devil fruits are the fragments of a deity that was banished to earth due to stuff mainly supporting ningen. The curse of the ocean is due to other deities wishing to eternally torment this deity with boredum by leaving it on a landmass. Originally there were more continents in One Piece but the deities destroyed them leaving behind islands that is how humans exist in impossible to evolve locations like the New World. The banished deity spent its time creating a gigantic organism called the devil tree that would fire the mystic fruit across the world. Those that consume this fruit gain one of the powers of the banished deity but also suffer from its curse of the ocean. Once a fruit user dies the tree produces a copy of the fruit then fires it again.

How devil fruits work?

A devil fruit is two things

A physical form of matter and a metaphysical devil. The devil is the source of the power while the matter is simply a way to enter a organism. Once consumed the devil becomes ome with the very soul of the user making the devil's traits including the curse of the ocean absolutely dominant also meaning devil fruits powers are impossible to remove using human science since they go far beyond genetics. In addition it means devil fruit powers cannot be passed down. As for how the devil creates the power, each devil has a random string of characters that determine its power, so the formation of devil fruits is random chance however once a devil is made another like that cannot thus there are never multiple devil fruits of the same kind. It also means you cannot copy a devil fruit no matter what you do. In addition you cannot make devil fruits that will never exist. Example the Ito Ito no mi is the manipulation of strings but what about a logia version? Nope doesnt exist thus will never exist.

How it works?

Gomu Gomu no mi

The devil overwrites Luffy's molecular structure to expand and multiply without killing him due to being metaphysical the devil can overwrite the laws of reality for its user for its powers to become possible.

Zoans simply have devils that interact with your DNA mutating you

Logia devils overwrite reality to allow their users to not die the instant they turn their brain into an element

A more pure form of this is the Nikyu Nikyu no mi. The devil in this fruit can repel and overwrite reality to make tgis repel anything. As such the Nikyu cando imposdible things like materialize an abstract concept like pain or stamina.

The Hobe Hobe contains a devil that overwrites the reality of whoever the user touchs this is why the toys dont instantly die the moment they become toys.

Excuse my autism but it looks like I have to make up a new law of reality to make sense of devil fruit powers, they cant work with even shonen physics.

Though you have to change so many physical constants to make sense of them all.

For example Luffy's entire body would be a new form of very elastic matter not just flesh with a rubbery property because thats fucking nonsense.

Ms.Valentine would need to a way to explain how she can control her weight without changing her mass. So you need to introduce a new attractive force to make sense of this.

Kuma is what is this I dont even.
>>
>>154534268
That's because you try to explain them with physic or science anon. But devil power work on a more conceptual level. BB didn't become a blackhole, he become Darkness, as in the concept of Darkness: mysterious, terryfing and able to devour everything, even the strongest and greatest man.

>spewing all that bullshit fanfic

Most likely explanation comin through:

>900 years ago a Great Kingdom shows technological and scientific prowess and making huge discoveries such as the lineage factor (a.k.a. DNA)
>The Great Kingdom is threatened by the 20 Kingdom conspiracy and weaponizes their discoveries (Uranus Pluton Poseidon AND Devil Fruits)
>Having decyphered the lineage factor they decide to enhance/give abilities to their soldiers
>They do it using a substance - the original that the S.A.D. sythesised by Caesar tried to copy.
>For the power not to be lost once the user dies, some bright mind makes it a self-replicant system by which the substance is stored on a fruit until consumption, and goes back to the nearest fruit once the user dies.
>Devil fruits are born
>>
Ok imagine a devil fruit that gives you the power to shoot lasers from your hands.

How would it work? Well first we need a way to explain how the fuck you are creating energy from nowhere so
