The Pasa Pasa no Mi is a non-canon Logia-type Devil Fruit that allows the user to create, control, and transform into pieces of paper. It was eaten by Simon, the main antagonist of the video game One Piece: Great Hidden Treasure of the Nanatsu Islands.
- "Pasa pasa" is an onomatopoeia for rustling in Japanese, as of paper.
The Pasa Pasa no Mi is a small round fruit resembling an apple. Its surface is covered in swirls and the stem is helix-shaped like a corkscrew.
Strengths and Weaknesses
The major strength of the ability is that it allows the user to transform into sheets of paper to strike or evade attacks like other Logia-class Devil Fruits. The thin sheets of paper can be used to inflict cutting damage on enemies and launched as projectiles. Transforming into paper also enables the user to fly freely. In addition, by using strange symbols written on the pages of an ancient book, the user is able to produce various elemental and physiological effects.
Although paper would normally be weak against fire, the user can counter this weakness by using a symbol with the power to suppress fire. This was demonstrated when Simon was able to counter the flames of Usopp's Kaen Boshi. However, if the pages are splashed with paint, the symbols lose their power and fire becomes a substantial risk. Aside from this, it is also subject to the the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
Simon used his ability to fly by transforming into paper, which allowed him to travel between islands without a ship. In combat, he launched sheets of paper as projectiles and used the strange symbols on the pages to inflict various effects on his opponents. He also used his ability to heal his injuries and avoid attacks.

Decades ago, Ko discovered the fruit among the treasure he had obtained. When he was still a rookie mountain bandit, Ko made a mistake and seriously injured a young boy, Simon. In an attempt to save Simon's life, Ko impulsively fed him the Pasa Pasa no Mi, not fully comprehending why he did so. However, Ko was successful as Simon transformed into multiple pieces of paper, and when he reassembled, his injuries were gone.
However, Simon was unaware of this because he had lost consciousness. As he had no recollection of eating a Devil Fruit, he started to believe that he had been born with his ability and that he was a special being who surpasses ordinary humans. After Simon was eaten by Shushibaruba, the fruit likely returned to circulation.
- The names of Simon's techniques come from the Hebrew language and are named after books (seferim) from the Jewish Kabbalah. The names Sefer Yetzirah, Sefer HaBahir and Sefer HaZohar are based on existing books, while the other technique names are formed via analogy from the the names of the Four Worlds.
