The Ori Ori no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows the user to bind their foes in iron shackles by having their foes pass either through the user's body or through the various metal bars the user can create. It was eaten by Hina.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
- Ori (檻?) means "cage" in Japanese.
- It is called the Bind-Bind Fruit in the Viz Manga.
- It is called the Cage-Cage Fruit in the 4Kids and FUNimation dubs.
Strengths and Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
Strengths[edit | edit source]
The major strength of the fruit, as demonstrated by Hina, is that it gives the ability to bind foes via two main means. The first is by having the foes simply pass through the user's body. The second is having the foes pass through the metal bars that the user can create.
Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
The fruit so far does not seem to have any specific weaknesses outside the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses. However, the user can unintentionally bind allies and prevent them from fighting.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Hina has used the fruit's bestowed powers so far mostly for the subduing of opponents. She can simply bind an opponent that passes through her, or be as complex as forming a cage from her arms to surround them. The named technique that is used by Hina that involves the Devil Fruit is as follows:
- Awase Baori (袷羽檻 Awase Baori?, literally meaning "Lined Kimono Feather Cage"): After surrounding an area with a fence-like cage of bars that come out of her arms, Hina closes the cage and binds anyone that is caught inside. This was first seen being used against Luffy at Marineford. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation subs and dub, this is called Kimono Sleeve Cage. The first part of the technique's name is based on the way the cage's bars come out of her arms, which resemble kimono sleeves. The second part of the technique's name is based on the fact that the bars vaguely resemble feathers. The pun in this technique is that the last two symbols of the technique are phonetically identical to that of the last two symbols of the word awase baori (袷羽織? "Lined Kimono"), which the last symbol was changed from "weave" (織?) to "cage" (檻?).
