- Kuri is short for Kurīmu (クリーム?), the Japanese word for cream.
Strengths and Weaknesses
Similar to other substance generation fruits, this fruit grants the user the ability to create and manipulate seemingly limitless amounts of cream. This allows them to perform both short and long-ranged attacks that cover a great area. The cream's sugar is also capable of inflicting chemical burns to anyone it comes in contact with, making the user difficult to approach in battle due to the risk in coming into contact with the cream.
Since it is a normal Paramecia and not a Logia, the fruit does not enable its user to transform into cream, meaning they cannot make their body invulnerable to normal attack. Otherwise, no weaknesses are known aside from the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
Opera keeps his fruit constantly active, as his body is always covered in cream, even in peaceable moments and when Big Mom pulled out his lifespan. He uses the fruit in combat, being shown to use area-affecting attacks to hit people with cream and burn them.
- Cream Monster (クリームモンスター Kurīmu Monsutā?): Opera covers his lower body with a large amount of cream and forms several tentacles out of it, giving him the overall appearance of a Kraken. He then attacks his opponent with the mass of cream, increasing the sweetness of the cream as he does so to burn them.
- The ability of his cream to burn is possibly a pun on "Crème brûlée", a French dessert, which literally means "burnt cream".
