The Mira Mira no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows the user to create mirrors which can reflect attacks or appearances, making the user a Mirror Human (鏡人間 Kagami Ningen?). It was eaten by Charlotte Brûlée.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
- Mirā (ミラー?) means "mirror" in Japanese.
- In the English dub, it is called the Mirror-Mirror Fruit.
Strengths and Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
Strengths[edit | edit source]
The foremost strength of the fruit is that it allows the user to create multiple mirrors in their own vicinity with their own hands. These mirrors can be used as a shield against enemy attacks, absorbing them and reflecting them back at the attacker, turning their own power against them.
These mirrors can also be used as portals into what appears to be a pocket dimension within the mirrors known as Mirro-World (
The mirrors appear to have some form of sentience, as they can be asked questions, such as their locations or whether they have seen certain people. The mirrors can even ask questions back to specify the results. However, the mirrors answer everyone, not just the user of the Devil Fruit, allowing them to take advantage of the user's power.
The user can also transform themselves into mirror images of certain individuals, but also imitate their actions completely. The user is also able to manipulate the target by initiating actions themselves, forcing the person they are reflecting to do the action as well. The reflection can be reverted back partially too. This effect can be applied on other beings in order to provide distractions and generate confusion.
Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
The ability to become someone's reflection does have some weaknesses. The user will look like the mirror image of the target, so their physical traits may not correctly match up in the case of asymetrical features. For example, when Brûlée mirrors Luffy, the scar under his right eye will be present on the left side of her face. As a reflection, the user is also forced to do and say anything the target does, which can compromise things they may do. However, the user is also capable of doing the same to the target.
Additionally, when the user puts a mirror up to a target, it is possible for them to accidentally transform any nearby animal into a copy of the intended target due to the reflection of light from the mirror. The user cannot immediately differentiate between mirror images and the actual target once the spell is done, meaning the user can be tricked by their own ability.
Even if the user shatters a mirror, it does not actually shatter the individuals trapped within it, leaving them unharmed, and they can still contact people on the other side through the shards. The mirrors can be shattered by sounds of sufficient pitch and force, which may negatively affect the user as not even they can pass through shattered mirrors. Also, if a person breaks a mirror inside the Mirro-World, its real-world counterpart will also break. Anyone put inside the mirror realm is still free to move around inside it should the user not take direct action, giving them access to all the mirrors in Whole Cake Island.
Like many other Devil Fruits, at least some of the user's powers will deactivate upon the user being knocked unconscious. However, the Mirro-World is always present, and if one keeps contact with the unconscious body of the user, they can travel in and out of the mirrors at will.
Other than those particularities, the user is affected by the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Brûlée's primary usage of this fruit's power is to misdirect and entrap her targets, whether in the form of counterattacks or preventing them from escaping. She also uses the Mirro-World to travel across Totto Land and nearby ships in secret.
Techniques[edit | edit source]
- Reflection (
反射Rifurekushon?): Brûlée uses her mirror to stop an opponent's attack, which is then reflected back at them.
- Mirro-World (
鏡世界Miro Wārudo?, literally meaning "Mirror World"): Brûlée lets her opponent phase through her mirror, trapping them inside. Even if the mirror breaks, the trapped person remains trapped in the broken pieces, although they suffer no harm. The mirrors that are scattered around the dimension can communicate about what is reflected in their real world counterparts.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This fruit is similar to the Doa Doa no Mi, as both enable the user to access a parallel world. Those abilities gives the user a way to move undetected by traveling in that world. It also resembles the Yami Yami no Mi and the Numa Numa no Mi, as it lets the user trap people in a pocket dimension.
- Unlike the Doa Doa no Mi, this fruit affects the object it is based on, mirrors.
- This fruit is also similar to the Mane Mane no Mi, as the user can copy the appearance and voice of another person. However, the user can also use the target's Devil Fruit abilities themselves, making it more like the Kopi Kopi no Mi, gains their clothing and does not need to touch their target to mimic them. Conversely, though, they are limited to appearing as a reflection rather than a perfect clone.
