One Piece Wiki
With leg strength explosive enough to seemingly cause one's body to "disappear"...
— Blueno, CP9[1]

For Charlotte Linlin's Devil Fruit, see Soru Soru no Mi.

Soru is one of the six techniques of "Rokushiki" that allows superhuman speed.


Soru allows the users to move at extremely high speeds in order to avoid attacks, as well as to attack at higher speeds and with greater power. It was revealed that the principle of this move was to kick off the ground at least ten times in the blink of an eye.[3]

It appears that Soru is one of the easiest to learn, since most practitioners of Rokushiki can use it. Nero used it during his battle with Franky on top of the Puffing Tom, but because he lacked the complete training, his Soru is actually more of a swift run instead of the vanishing speed seen from other Soru users.[4] Koby on the other hand, was seen being able to use this move during his friendly fight with Luffy after the Enies Lobby Arc[5] and during the Marineford Arc, after only a few months training with Garp.

Monkey D. Luffy gains access to the Soru technique when he utilizes his Gear 2 mode, which pumps up his metabolism and allows him to move at disappearing speeds, which surpasses even Blueno's.[6]

Another thing that should be noted of this particular skill is that Kuro's "Shakushi" travels at roughly the same speed as CP9's Soru ability. The difference is that when Kuro uses that technique, he cannot see what he is attacking, or how far he is going, whereas CP9 have mastered this ability and therefore can.[7] The fact that other people, outside of CP9 membership have exhibited being able to imitate the skill (either by copying the move directly or developed their own version of it) suggests that Soru might be the most fundamental of Rokushiki. This is supported by the fact that Koby uses (and later masters) Soru, though he has not shown the ability to use any other Rokushiki techniques.

  • Kamisori (剃刀, Kamisori?, literally meaning "Razor"): Used by Lucci. A combination of Geppo and Soru, where Lucci uses Soru in a zigzag motion in midair, allowing extremely fast movements in three dimensions,[8] other CP9 agents have also shown to use this technique or a similar one allowing them to move through the air at great speed. In the Pirate Warriors series, Lucci can use Kamisori to cut through enemies while utilizing its high-speed movements, and he can use the attack in his Human Form in the third Pirate Warriors game (while ending it with a smashing dive). In One Piece: Burning Blood, it acts as Lucci's special movement in his Beast Form. In the VIZ manga and Funimation adaptations, this is called Razor.
  • Soru "Tekkai Dama" (剃「鉄塊玉」, Soru "Tekkai Dama"?, literally meaning "Shave: 'Iron Mass Ball'"): Used by Fukurou. In this attack, Fukurou spins his body at great speeds towards his opponent using Soru, then uses Tekkai to harden his spherical body.[9] This is called Shave Iron Ball in the VIZ manga and Iron Ball in the Funimation dub.
    • Cho Sokuten Tekkai Dama (超側転 鉄塊玉, Chō Sokuten Tekkai Dama?, literally meaning "Super Cartwheel: Iron Mass Ball"): A variation on the above technique used by Fukurou wherein he combines his usual Tekkai Dama movements with Geppo to use it in midair.[10] In the VIZ manga and Funimation dub, this is called Super Cartwheel Iron Ball.

Non-Canon Variations[]

  • Soru "Kokoken" (剃「硬鋼拳」, Soru "Kōkōken?, literally meaning "Shave: Stiff Steel Fist"): A non-canon variation. Lucci reappears after a Soru-dash forward with direct punch. Used as his dash attack in Gigant Battle 2.
