The Maki Maki no Mi[3] is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows the user to create and control scrolls at will, which have special properties including storing objects and generating drawings. It was eaten by Raizo.[4]

Etymology

  • "Maki" is short for Makimono (巻物?), the Japanese word for "scroll". "Makimaki" is also a common onomatopoeia for a piece of paper or tape rolling up or wrapping around something.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Raizo releases Kaidou's sealed attack from a scroll after wrapping it around his body.

With this power, the user can manifest and telekinetically control scrolls. These scrolls can change size as the user wills, being capable of growing big enough to dwarf people in size and extending long enough to wrap around Kaidou's extremely long dragon body. Scrolls can be summoned and unrolled almost instantaneously.

The scrolls possess the special ability of storing objects inside them, allowing them to intercept and capture any attacks performed by the user's opponents, even energy attacks like Kaidou's fire breath. On the user's command, the attack can be released from the scroll at any time, potentially allowing the user to turn their opponent's attack directly against them. With the scroll being able to fully wrap around anyone, this gives the user the opportunity to hit their opponent's entire body with the attack.[4]

It also appears as though the user can summon drawings from scrolls and manifest them into lifelike objects. This is shown with Raizo's clone jutsu, in which he generates duplicates of himself after unrolling scrolls below him. The exact nature and composition of the manifested drawings is currently unknown.[5]

No weaknesses of this power are currently known aside from the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.

Usage

Raizo first used this power in open combat against Kaidou, using a scroll to capture the Emperor's fire breath and redirect it at him. Since he lacks knowledge of Devil Fruits and their properties, he refers to this power as a "jutsu", considering it one of his ninjutsu techniques.[4]

Techniques

  • Ninpo: Bunshin no Jutsu (忍法 分身の術 Ninpō: Bunshin no Jutsu?, literally meaning "Ninja Art: Clone Technique"): Raizo unrolls multiple scrolls on the ground below him, and drawings of himself manifest from the scrolls, becoming lifelike clones which move around him and thus confuse opponents as to where the real Raizo is. The technique was first used on Zou as part of a demonstration of Raizo's ninja abilities,[2] though it was not shown to be a scroll-based technique at the time. The usage of the scrolls was first seen when Raizo used this technique during his battle with Fukurokuju.[5]
  • Ninpo: Maki Maki no Jutsu (忍法 巻々マキマキの術 Ninpō: Maki Maki no Jutsu?, literally meaning "Ninja Art: Scroll-Scroll Technique"): Raizo manifests a scroll from thin air that can capture and store an enemy's attack inside of it. The scroll starts out normal-sized but can rapidly grow in size to intercept any attack. It was first used to intercept Kaidou's Bolo Breath attack.[4] It is called Ninpo: Scroll-Scroll Jutsu in the Viz Manga.
    • Hokan (奉還 Hōkan?, literally meaning "Restoration"): After using a scroll to intercept his opponent's attack and wrapping the scroll around his opponent's body, Raizo releases their attack from the scroll to strike them across their whole body. Before unleashing this attack, Raizo says "Return" (お返しいたす Okaeshi itasu?) followed by the name of the opponent's attack. It was first used against Kaidou to redirect his Bolo Breath attack back at him.[4] An alternate version of this technique exists in which Raizo releases the contents of the scroll without wrapping it around anything. It was first used to release a massive deluge of water collected from Zou so that Jinbe could use it to put out the fires on Onigashima.[6]

Trivia

  • This power is quite similar to that of the Buku Buku no Mi, as both give the users special control over a specific kind of written medium (books in the latter's case), including using that medium to store objects.
  • This power can replicate the abilities of a few other Paramecia powers, such as:
    • The Hana Hana no Mi, as the user can create clones of themselves.
    • The Fude Fude no Mi, as the user's clones are drawings stored in the scrolls that are animated.
    • The Poke Poke no Mi, as the user can store objects regardless of quantity.
    • The Mira Mira no Mi, as the user can reflect attacks back at their opponents.
