Strengths and Weaknesses

The main strength of this fruit is that it allows the user to transform into a rhinoceros beetle, giving them wings, a second pair of arms, and a horn.[1]

This fruit has no known weaknesses, aside from the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.


Kabu uses the wings granted by his form to fly.[1] Kabu's speed also increases dramatically while he is in hybrid form.[2]


  • Beetle Upper (ビートルアッパー Bītoru Appā?): By increasing his speed to the highest levels, Kabu rushes towards his targets while spinning to headbutt his enemies. The momentum is powerful enough to send four executives of the Doflamingo Pirates flying. It was first used against the unconscious Machvise, Lao G, Dellinger, and Sugar to prevent Giolla from healing them with Mansherry's ability.[3] In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, it is called Beetle Uppercut.
