The Gasha Gasha no Mi is a non-canon Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows the user to create things by combining inanimate objects at will, making them an Assimilation Human (合体人間 Gattai Ningen?, FUNimation: "Combinable Human"). It was eaten by Douglas Bullet.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
- "Gashagasha" (ガシャガシャ/がしゃがしゃ?) is a Japanese onomatopoeia that refers to pieces of metal, etc. hitting each other noisily (i.e. "clatter", "clank", "rattle"), or can simply mean cluttered/disordered/messy.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The Gasha Gasha no Mi is a round, blue fruit with a crooked stem. It is dotted with a variety of bumps in multiple defined shapes, ranging from circles to hexagons. Each of these bumps has a noticeable spiral on them.
Strengths and Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
With the fruit's power, the user is capable of creating large mechanical structures and vessels, including submarines and robot suits that increase their fighting prowess and transportation capabilities. As with all Devil Fruits, this one has the potential to be "awakened", which allows the user to disassemble and reformat objects from a much greater range, even the environment itself.
Aside from the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses, this fruit is entirely dependent on the resources the user has at their disposal and their own efficiency. The user must also know what they are making, meaning one needs a large amount mechanical knowledge.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Bullet uses his fruit to form a large variety of mechanical creations, most notably creating giant exoskeletons to significantly augment his physical power.
As an awakened Devil Fruit user, Bullet can disassemble objects from a greater range and also essentially restructure the landscape of entire islands by disassembling and reassembling their features as he sees fit.
Bullet can also alter himself to enter a powered state combining his powers and Busoshoku Haki, similar to Luffy's Gear Fourth. In this state, Bullet's body turns shining blue with red eyes and his arms are expanded and compressed as if they were formed by tyres. In this form, his strength and speed are further enhanced by his Haki as well as his offensive power.
Techniques[edit | edit source]
- Union Armado (
鎧合体Union Arumādo?, literally translated as "Armor Assimilation"): Bullet first touches the two round spears on his submarine filled with swords, cannons, and firearms and then activates his Devil Fruit powers. He combined his submarine and the weapons to form into a giant mech and controls it from the inside of it to fight his opponents. It was first used against the Supernovas as they tried to fight Bullet. This is known as Union Armada in the Funimation dub. Armado is Spanish for "armored".
- Ultimate Faust (ウルティメイト・ファウスト Arutimeito Fausuto?, literally meaning “Ultimate Fist”): After assimilating his mech and becoming a island size golem, Bullet first assimilated a giant arm and coat it with Busoshoku Haki before punching his opponents. It was first used to split all of Delta Island into pieces with a single blow as a show of force by Bullet. It was again used against Luffy but was unsuccessful and his giant arm cracked and crumbled. “Faust” is German for “fist”. This attack retains its name in the Funimation dub.
- Det Sterkeste Strike (
最強の一撃Dē Steikuste Sutoraiku?, literally meaning "The Strike of the Strongest"): In his powered state Bullet punches his opponent repeatedly. It was first seen used against Luffy's Gomu Gomu no King Kong Gatling. "Det Sterkeste" is Norwegian for "the strongest". This attack also retains its name in the Funimation dub.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The fruit's power is slightly similar to Eustass Kid's unnamed fruit which allows him to manipulate magnetic forces, as it has been used to fashion new objects out of metal parts. Its power of combining objects is also similar to the power of the Gocha Gocha no Mi, although the latter focuses mainly on combining living things, while the former focuses on inanimate things.
- The required knowledge of mechanics to make full use of this fruit is similar to the Ope Ope no Mi's in terms of medical knowledge.
