The Hana Hana no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows the user to replicate and sprout pieces of their body from the surface of any object or living thing.[2] As further allusion to this, pinkish-white petal-like particles form at and then swirl away from where the parts sprout and vanish, as well as around the user itself. It was eaten by Nico Robin.

The power of the fruit was first demonstrated but not clearly seen before Luffy and crew when they first met Robin on the Going Merry.[1] The fruit's actual power was fully revealed during Robin and Pell's confrontation.[2]

Etymology

  • "Hana" (?) is the Japanese word for "Bloom" and "Flower", and reflects the nature of the user's power to sprout their body parts like a blooming flower.
  • The fruit keeps its original Japanese name in the 4Kids dub by calling it the Hana-Hana Fruit.
  • It is called the Flower-Flower Fruit in the VIZ Manga and FUNimation dub.

Appearance

The Hana Hana no Mi is a pink flower shaped fruit with a stem sprouting out of the top, with swirls that go in a curly "S" like-pattern on the petals. Its overall appearance greatly resembles a pink dahlia.[3]

Strengths and Weaknesses

I don't think you understand yet. Power, speed... they mean nothing to me.
— Robin explains to Pell about her power as she puts him into submission


Strengths

Robin manifesting extra limbs on her own body.

The fruit's major strength, as demonstrated by Nico Robin, is the ability to sprout multiple body parts on any surface (except Seastone), including the user's own body, without damaging so and then manipulate said body parts remotely, as if they were an extension of the user's own original limbs. Since the user is practically the only one who knows where their limbs will sprout out, they almost always have the element of surprise on their side, which, coupled with the fruit's long range and almost instantaneous speed of limb sprouting, turns Robin into a massive threat during combat situations, enough that enemies may find themselves in a very compromising position if they don't possess an ability that lets them somehow counter or escape from her myriad of summoned limbs.[4][5][6]

Through the Hana Hana no Mi, Robin can easily catch and restrain even the incredibly fast Hakuba.

As Robin claimed to Pell, speed and strength mean nothing to her as she can render almost any foe into submission with ease,[7] even those with superhuman speed such as Hakuba. Additionally, the fruit's powers are capable of affecting many opponents simultaneously,[1][8] displaying great offensive capabilities through grappling or stomping techniques.[9] For defense, Robin can conjure traps, shields or barriers to capture or repel incoming dangers with a multitude of her limbs.[10] By sprouting eyes or ears in strategic places, the fruit's powers can also be used for gathering intelligence.[11][12][13] The Hana Hana no Mi overall is incredibly versatile and permits multitasking for adventuring, battles or everyday activities.

Before the time skip, Robin was capable of sprouting up to one hundred arms at once.[14] At this apex of power, she could use each hand created to support each other and meld together, thereby allowing her to create larger hands out of many to take on more powerful and larger foes.[15] This aspect also makes Robin much more versatile as it allows her to form more intricate patterns with her sprouting limbs like "Cien Fleur: Wing" and "Big Tree". The only pattern to show any time limit was seen with the "Cien Fleur: Wing" as it required great effort to maintain altitude, resisting gravity and gaining forward momentum.[16]

After the timeskip, Robin's duplication ability has grown to the point of being able to sprout up to one thousand body parts at once, melding them into gigantic limbs.[17]

She has also gained the ability to create a full-body clone of herself. Unlike the rest of her abilities, her clone is also able to generate clothing, though this is an intentional discrepancy common to all Devil Fruits for obvious reasons.[18]

According to Oda, the user has a radius of 200 Hana Hanas in which they can extend parts of their body (although he did say this jokingly).[19]

Weaknesses

The user of the Hana Hana no Mi has the unique weaknesses of having any damage to the sprouted limbs transferred to their real body.[20][21] This not only includes injury or strain, but also effects from other Devil Fruits, meaning Robin is particularly vulnerable against other Devil Fruit users whose abilities manifest through simple touch, as no matter how distant she is from them, she will be affected if contact is made with her replicated limbs.[6]

The capabilities of each replicated appendage is no different to that of Robin's actual corresponding limbs, meaning they reflect her own physical strength. This means that if a specific enemy is too heavy, Robin may have trouble holding them down.[22]

The body parts are also bound to the surface they sprouted from and cannot move from their spot. Furthermore, the user cannot create limbs where there is not enough room. Another weakness of Robin’s Devil Fruit is that she needs to be able to see the object or what it looks like for her to effectively sprout her limbs. Therefore, she cannot attack, counter, or capture an enemy or object if she cannot see it or not within her range of view. This was shown in Jaya, where she could not capture the South Bird before because she did not know what it looked like, but after seeing it, she could easily capture the bird.


The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.


As seen in One Piece Film: Z, it is implied that a user's ability to manifest extra limbs on a moving target depends on their reaction time and field of vision, and a faster opponent may dodge their attempts if they manage to move out of either one in time. This is demonstrated when Binz managed to outpace Robin and dodge her attacks by moving quickly out of sight.

Other than that, the user is also affected by the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.

Usage

Before the Timeskip

The powers of the fruit have been used by Robin for a variety of ways. She has been using them as far back as when she was a child.[23] She most notably uses the powers for combat, however, she has been known to use them for other purposes (such as tickling Luffy and Chopper). When Robin uses her power in battle, she uses a submission and grappling style (and later wrestling) where she replicates her arms at specific locations on her opponent's body and puts them in painful holds to prevent them from moving, or to disarm them by knocking away any weapon or tools that they may have in their possession.

Arms

An example of the Hana Hana no Mi's use in battle when Robin stops Tashigi.

Robin mostly uses the fruit's powers to replicate her arms in order to do a variety of things. The named techniques that Robin uses for her arms all follow a pattern. First, she says the number of arms she will sprout in Spanish followed by the word "Fleur", which means "Flower" in French. From there, depending on where she sprouted her arms, she can do a number of things. If the thing she will do next is an attack, she will state the name of the attack in English.[24] An example of this pattern is the technique, Treinta Fleur: Strangle, wherein she sprouts thirty arms and then strangles her opponents. In the 4Kids dub, this pattern is different: she will instead state the whole technique in English and replace the "Fleur" with "Floret". In the VIZ manga and FUNimation dub, the names of her techniques are the same as the original Japanese version.

The named techniques that involve her using the Devil Fruit to replicate and sprout her arms are as follows:

  • Grab (グラップ Gurappu?): A technique that uses two arms that Robin has sprouted. This has so far been used to persuade Franky to join the Straw Hats when he initially declined to join them. With her two arms sprouting from his legs, she grasped and crushed his "treasure" in a hilarious scene in order to change his mind. The pain inflicted by her using this technique was obviously unbearable and brought Franky to his knees in agony. In a response to a fan, Oda stated that Robin pretty much felt what she was touching at the time. This was first used against Franky.[21]
  • Clutch (クラッチ Kuracchi?): Robin sprouts two hands to cover the opponent's mouth, then bends them backward with bone-breaking results.

  • Calendula (金盞花カンデュラ Kandyura?, literally meaning "Marigold"): A technique that uses twenty arms that Robin has sprouted. By spreading about the ten new arms out of each her two original arms, Robin can create a shield of sorts that can block attacks. This technique; however, is not exactly defensive for Robin herself as she still receives wounds from the attack and is used more to defend something else near Robin. This was first seen being used by Robin to defend some ancient text from Yama's attack.[35] This move was seen again when facing Moria, however, this time her hand can spin around, hitting any objects away when it comes too close. And used once again against Moria's Brick Bat, with little effect.[citation needed] Calendula refers to "Calendula officinalis", the scientific name for the Pot Marigold or Scotch Marigold flower.

This was first used against Moria.[citation needed]
  • Clutch (クラッチ Kuracchi?): A technique that uses four huge arms, combined from eighty regular-sized arms, that Robin has sprouted. It is basically the same move like the other versions of Clutch where Robin snaps an opponent with her arms.

This was first seen being used against Gecko Moria in an attempt to defeat him.[5]

Cuatro Manos: Shock.

  • Shock (ショック Shokku?): A technique that uses four huge arms combined from eighty regular sized arms that Robin has sprouted.

This was first seen being used against a Pacifista before it could fire its mouth beam at Nami. Having forced the Pacifista's mouth closed with the blows before it could fire, it caused the beam to go off inside its mouth.[39]
  • Cien Fleur (百花繚乱シエンフルール Shien Furūru?, literally meaning "Hundred Flower"; kanji meaning "Many Flowers Blooming in Profusion"): Robin sprouts one hundred arms. This number of arms being used as a named technique was first seen being used against Yama with Delphinium.[14] In the 4Kids adaptation, this is called Hundred Floret. The Japanese word, "Hyakka Ryōran", literally means "Many Flowers Blooming in Profusion".
  • Delphinium (大飛燕草デルフィニウム Derufiniumu?, literally meaning "Large Rocket Larkspur"): A technique that uses a hundred arms that Robin has sprouted. By creating a path with the arms, she can systematically roll or lift both opponents and allies alike. This was first seen being used on Yama to roll him off a cliff. She then used a Clutch move with the use of apparently twelve arms wrapped around his body to finish him off as he fell.[14] The word "Delphinium" is the name of a particular type of flower.

Cien Fleur: Wing

  • Wing (ウイング Uingu?): A technique that uses a hundred arms that Robin has sprouted. By sprouting her arms from her back, by the shoulder blades, and having them hold each other tightly in a certain way, Robin is able to create two giant makeshift wings made from fifty of her arms per wing. Robin is then able to briefly fly in mid-air for five seconds, even if she is carrying another person with her. This technique was first seen being used to carry Franky and herself after Franky destroyed the bridge they were standing on in Thriller Bark.[16] And was later used to parachute herself safely down to the Human Auction House after being escorted there by the Flying Fish-Man Riders in the Sabaody Archipelago.[citation needed]

Robin uses Spider Net to catch Law.

  • Spider Net (蜘蛛の華スパイダーネット Supaidā Netto?, literally meaning "Spider Flower"): A technique that uses a hundred arms that Robin has sprouted.

This was first seen being used to save Zoro from falling after Oars kicked him from high up into the air.[40]
  • Big Tree (大樹ビッグツリー Biggu Tsurī?): A technique that uses a hundred arms that Robin has sprouted. By sprouting her arms all together in one area, Robin can create a mass of hands that resembles a giant tree. This was first seen being used to bind Oars' massive left arm after Zoro knocked it backwards. While Robin immediately grabbed Oars' arm with this technique without stating any other technique in the manga, the anime extended this technique a bit. In the anime, after Robin created the Big Tree, she moved the entire mass like one gigantic arm, grabbed Oars' arm, and performed a Clutch move on Oars' arm with it.[41] In Unlimited Cruise, Robin uses this move to produce a mass of arms somewhere close to where she is and bludgeon all enemies around her at close range using a wide sweeping motion.


The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.


  • Flip (フリプ Furipu?): A technique that uses a hundred arms that Robin has sprouted. This is apparently an anime-only technique. This was first seen being used on several Marine captains to flip them as they were running down the steps to the evacuation ship in Enies Lobby.[42]
  • Defense (ディフェンス Difensu?): A technique that uses a hundred arms that Robin has sprouted. This is an anime-only technique.

Though the cannonballs hit Robin's arms directly, she apparently did not show any signs of pain. This technique was first seen being used in the anime to protect the Going Merry from cannonballs fired at the ship during the Straw Hats escape from Enies Lobby. The cannonballs after being blocked were then thrown back by Franky.[43]

  • Slalom Vine (回転蔓スラロームバイン Surarōmu Bain?, literally meaning "Turning Vine"): A propelling technique wherein Robin uses an unspecified number of arms one after another like a chord and winds it around somebody else's (whose bodies had been parallel to the ground) torso before pulling it. This results in a spinning vertical top-like effect that lasts even while in mid-air. This was first seen being used together with Brook, Usopp, and Nami.[44] In One Piece: Burning Blood, Robin uses Slalom Vine like a whip to attack enemies.
  • Dos Manos (二本樹ドス・マーノス Dosu Mānosu?, literally meaning "Two Hands"; kanji meaning "Two Trees"): A technique in which she sprouts an unspecified number of arms to create two large arms. This was first seen being used against a Flying Fish Rider. Depending on her Cuatro Manos performed from Ochenta Fleur, we can judge the number of this skill.[45] This technique literally means Two Hands.
  • Clutch (クラッチ Kuracchi?): A technique that uses the two huge arms that Robin created. She basically grabs an opponent with these two and breaks him. This was first seen being used against a Flying Fish Rider while he was riding on his giant flying fish in an attack.[citation needed]

Other Body Parts

Robin replicating her feet to carry Zoro.

Aside from her arms, Robin can also replicate other parts of her body. These enable her to do a variety of things from giving her extra insight into other places with her eyes sprouting on certain objects,[11] to transporting fallen comrades with her legs sprouting from out of their bodies.[48]

The other body parts she can replicate usually include parts of her body that enable her to do things that her arms cannot do. These thus include Robin sprouting either eyes or ears to enable her to see or hear things that would otherwise be too inaccessible for her to get any closer.[12][13]

The named techniques that involve her using the Devil Fruit to replicate and sprout other body parts aside from arms are as follows.

  • Ojos Fleur (目抜咲きオッホスフルール Ohhosu Furūru?, literally meaning "Eyes Flower"; kanji meaning "Profusely Blooming Rockfish"): Robin sprouts eyes so that she can see things at a distance. This was first seen as a named technique being used to help locate Usopp after he swam through the clouds by sprouting them from Luffy's arm as he stretches it downwards the White Sea.[11]
  • Pierna Fleur (脚場輪咲きピエルナフルール Pieruna Furūru?, literally meaning "Leg Flower"; kanji meaning "Profusely Blooming Legs"): Robin sprouts several feet. This was first seen as a named technique being used to help Chopper perform a combo technique with Robin.[49] By sprouting her legs one after another from under Chopper's feet, she increased the height for which Chopper could perform a suplex move. She later used this move to form footholds on the exterior of Thriller Bark's main mast for Brook (who was carrying Luffy) to continuously leap on by having the legs crossed together in pairs, supporting the weight of the two Devil Fruit users.[citation needed]
  • Robi-Cho Suplex (ロビッチョスープレックス Robi Cho Sūpurekkusu?): A technique that can be done by Robin and Chopper that involves several of Robin's legs. After Chopper grabs an opponent in Heavy Point, Robin sprouts leg after leg under Chopper's feet. When a desired height is achieved, Chopper would jump off his "stilts" and crush the opponent's head in a suplex. This was first seen being used against Hogback.[49]


The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.


  • Oreja Fleur (オレッハフルール Orehha Furūru?, literally meaning "Ear Flower"): Robin sprouts an ear to listen on conversations. Though not yet openly stated as a named technique in the manga, Robin has stated a named technique involving her ears in the anime known as Oreja Fleur. In the anime episode in which she uses it, Robin first sprouts two lines of connected multiple arms from a distance. At the very end of each line, in the palm of each hand, is an ear. She used this technique to listen in on a conversation between two Marines safely from a distance.[12][13]


Concludes non-canon section.


After the Timeskip

After the two year timeskip Robin has acquired a new level of skill with using her ability, as she has shown to be able to grow one thousand arms at once, along with learning to create a replica of her entire body with clothing, having one appear in between Luffy and Jinbe when they were fighting.[citation needed]

She has also changed the name of her technique Manos to Mano. It was shown the first time when she used Gigantesco Mano, and later shown in other techniques.[citation needed]

Limbs

  • Cien Fleur (百花繚乱シエンフルール Shien Furūru?, literally meaning "Hundred Flower"; kanji meaning "Many Flowers Blooming in Profusion"): Robin sprouts a hundred arms. This number of arms was first used as a named move against a centaur with the lower half of a giraffe.[citation needed]

It was first used against rampaging children in order to hold them back on Punk Hazard.[51] The size of these arms are much bigger than the previous Dos Manos, but it is unknown if pre-timeskip Dos Manos is made from Cien Fleur or Cuarenta Fleur.
  • Mil Fleur (千紫万紅ミル・フルール Miru Furūru?, literally meaning "Thousand Flower"; kanji meaning "Multitude of Colors"): Robin sprouts a thousand arms. This number of arms being used as a named technique was first seen being used to create two huge hands to push the Thousand Sunny away from an underwater mountain so it did not crash.[17]

Mil Fleur: Gigantesco Mano.

  • Gigantesco Mano (巨大樹ヒガンテスコ・マーノ Higantesuko Māno?, literally meaning "Gigantic Hand"; kanji meaning "Gigantic Tree"): Robin creates two giant limbs, sprouting from potentially anywhere. They have great physical power, even when used underwater, and were able to push the Thousand Sunny away from an underwater mountain in their first use.[17] Oddly enough, even though this attack's name literally means "Gigantic Hand", it can be used to create legs.[9]
  • Stomp (ストンプ Sutonpu?): Using two giant legs created by Mil Fleur: Gigantesco Mano, Robin stomps down upon her opponents. It was first used during the battle at Gyoncorde Plaza against some of the New Fish-Man Pirates.[9]
  • Spank (スパンク Supanku?): Using two giant arms created by Mil Fleur: Gigantesco Mano, Robin strikes with her palms open. It was first used against a group of Fighting Fish on the way to Green Bit. It was powerful enough to keep them off the bridge.[52]

This was used when the two were protecting Brook from a rain of arrows launched at him via a trap in the Heart of Gold special. In the FUNimation subs, it is called Chopper and Robin's Vortex.


Concludes non-canon section.


  • Campo de Flores (花畑カンポ・デ・フローレス Kanpo de Furōresu?, literally meaning "Flowers Field"; kanji meaning "Flower Garden"): Robin sprouts a thousand arms across a large area to capture any enemy in it. This was first seen being used to restrain the seemingly invisible creatures on Green Bit, who Robin theorized to be dwarves thanks to this technique.[53] "Campo de Flores" is Portuguese and Spanish for "Field of Flowers".

Mil Fleur: Moth Orchid.

  • Kochoran (胡蝶蘭 Kochōran?, literally meaning "Moth Orchid"): Robin creates hundreds of pairs of hands, linked together with interlocking thumbs into a moth-like appearance, which creates a gust used to divert an attack, and after the attack has been deflected, Robin can sprout more limbs to further block it. This was first used against Diamante to defend Rebecca from his fluttering sword. This is the first time that Robin has sprouted body parts out of the air rather than off of a solid surface.[54] In the anime, however, the hands were seen sprouting from floating sunflower petals.[55] The "Moth Orchid" is a genus of orchids.

Hanagasa.

  • Hanagasa (花傘 Hanagasa?, literally meaning "Flower Umbrella"): Robin creates two giant hands, then several smaller hands growing from that. The hands were used to uproot the flowers in the Flower Field, so the flowers would protect anyone under it from projectiles. The flowers are not the strongest shields, however, and Diamante's Spiky Iron Balls came close to penetrating them.[10]


The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.


  • Hariko (針子 Hariko?, literally meaning "Seamstress"): A non-canon, utility technique. When making Zunesha's bandages, Robin had the Mink Tribe hold several large sheets edge-to-edge with each other. She then sprouted arms both above and below the sheets and have them quickly stitch all the sheets together simultaneously to form one long bandage.[56]


Concludes non-canon section.

  • Cuarenta Fleur (四十輪咲きクワレンタ・フルール Kuwarenta Furūru?, literally meaning "Forty Flower"; kanji meaning "Forty Profusely Blooming Flowers"): Robin sprouts forty arms. This number of arms was first used as a named move against a small dragon on Punk Hazard.[58]
  • Cuatro Mano (四本樹クワトロ・マーノ Kuwatoro Māno?, literally meaning "Four Hands"; kanji meaning "Four Trees"): Robin combines the forty arms she sprouted to form four gigantic hands. This was first used against a small dragon on Punk Hazard.[58]
  • Hold (ホールド Hōrudo?): A technique that uses four huge arms, combined from forty regular sized arms that Robin has sprouted. With these four huge arms, Robin sprouts them from a large enemy's body and holds them down with them in a fashion similar to the way she would normally hold a normal-sized man. This was first used against a small dragon on Punk Hazard.[58]


The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.


  • Clutch (クラッチ Kuracchi?): This technique is used by Robin after performing Cuatro Mano "Hold" in One Piece: Burning Blood. After grabbing the opponent with Cuarenta Fleur: Cuatro Mano Hold, Robin will sprout four arms on the opponents upper body to "clutch" the opponent.


Concludes non-canon section.


Cuatro Mano: Spank.

  • Spank (スパンク Supanku?): A technique where Robin sprouts four huge arms that strike with an open palm. It was first used by sprouting the arms from Nami's body, and attacking in all four directions, to shatter Monet's monster form and free Nami from her hold.[59]
  • Diez Fleur (十輪咲きヂィエスフルール Diesu Furūru?, literally meaning "Ten Flower"; kanji meaning "Ten Profusely Blooming Flowers"): Robin sprouts ten arms. This number of arms was first seen when she restrained Gladius.[60]
  • Cinco Mano (五本樹シンコ・マーノ Shinko Māno?, literally meaning "Five Hands"; kanji meaning "Five Trees"): Robin sprouts an unspecified number of arms to create five giant arms.[61]
  • Spank (スパンク Supanku?): Identical to Cuatro Mano: Spank, but with five hands instead of four. This was first seen when Robin used it against a Nutcracker that was trying to attack Bartolomeo.[61]

Other Body Parts

  • Cuerpo Fleur (体咲きクエルポフルール Kuerupo Furūru?, literally meaning "Body Flower"; kanji meaning "Profusely Blooming Body"): Robin sprouts a copy of her whole body anywhere she likes it, be it on her opponent's body or on land; this clone is capable of moving on its own like a real person and can dissipate into petals just as quickly. She can also sprout extra limbs on these duplicated bodies to use some attacks more effectively. This was first seen (but not named) when Robin used a decoy of herself to stop Luffy and Jinbe from fighting each other. Unlike her ordinary attacks, Robin can sprout her clothes alongside the clone.[citation needed]

Doble Clutch.

  • Doble Clutch (Wドーブレ・クラッチ Dōbure Kuracchi?, literally meaning "Double Clutch"): Robin sprouts one clone of herself with 2 pairs of extra arms using Cuerpo Fleur, which she uses to grab her opponent's head. While she herself grabs her opponent's legs, after also sprouting 2 pairs of extra arms on her own arms. She then performs Clutch simultaneously on both of the opponent's legs and head, breaking both of the opponent's lower back and neck with "U" shape. This is first used against Hammond to break his back.[62] In the FUNimation dub, this is called Double Clutch.

History

Past

At or before 8 years old, Robin ate the Hana Hana no Mi, thus gaining its powers. As a result, she had been ostracized by many citizens of Ohara for being a freak, which is a typical response in regards to a Devil Fruit user.[citation needed]

Trivia

  • Similar to the Noro Noro no Mi, Robin tends to make accompanying gestures when using her powers, pointing to the spot from which to sprout appendages as a child and crossing her arms with her palms facing up as an adult. However, she has been seen activating her powers without them and is likely not required to.[63]
    • Robin most likely crosses her arms to help her concentrate, as she feels the strain of each individual arm.
  • Occasionally, when Robin uses or de-spell her techniques, Chrysanthemum petals are formed in the air.

SBS Trivia

Oda's drawing of what if a hairy person ate the fruit.

  • According to Oda, in response to a fan, if the Hana Hana no Mi were eaten by a person with hairy arms, the arms that would be sprouted would also be hairy.[64]
  • Another SBS question asked if Robin could sprout breasts. Oda simply stated he was sure she could.[65]

Rejected technique Face Fleur

  • In One Piece Color Walk 4 Eagle, there was concept art of Chopper with Robin's face on the back of his head, labeled "Face Fleur" (フェイス・フルール Feisu Furūru?).[66] Oda noted that he planned for Robin to use the move in Skypiea, but due to how creepy it looked, the idea was rejected instantly.[67]
  • One more SBS question asked if a male user of the Hana Hana no Mi could bloom a penis to pee from a distance. Oda confirmed and jestingly called it "Dick Fleur".[68]
  • Oda revealed the flower blossoms that appear when Robin is using her powers are "Fuwa Flowers" (フワッフラワー Fuwaffurawā?).[69] Fuwa is a word used to describe fluffy things.
  • Some of Robin’s skills are named after plants, particularly some variety of different flowers (Delphinium, Moth Orchid, etc.)
