The Tama Tama no Mi is an unclassified Devil Fruit that turns the user's body composition into that of an egg, which if cracked open will cause the user to regenerate into a stronger body that features more and more chicken-like features each time. It was eaten by Tamago.
- "Tama" is short for "Tamago" (卵), the Japanese word for egg.
- In the English dub, it is called the Egg-Egg Fruit.
Strengths and Weaknesses
The greatest strength the fruit gives is the ability to regenerate from severe injuries that would normally kill a person by evolving from an egg to a chicken. The new forms the user gains also drastically increase their fighting ability, to the point where the second transformation makes the user a "true knight".
However, the user is left defenseless while regenerating, and if attacked in the midst of the evolution, it may result in the user's death. The fact that Baron Tamago's underlings are familiar with his different evolutions would suggest that they have already witnessed them before, which implies that he does revert to his egg form at some point after his evolution to Count Niwatori, although the conditions for this to happen has not been revealed. Otherwise, the user is affected by the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
With this fruit, Tamago's body takes on the shape and composition of an egg, giving him the name Baron Tamago. When his body is cracked open, a dark yolk emerges, and after a short amount of time, he evolves into his next stage from the yolk. He first transforms into Viscount Hiyoko, and then Count Niwatori after Viscount Hiyoko is defeated.
Baron Tamago (タマゴ男爵 Tamago Danshaku?) is Tamago's first and main form. In this form, he gains an eggshell around his waist, and wields a shikomizue. He is also very proficient in rapid kicking attacks and wears tights that protect him from Electro. In this form, he often adds French words to his speech. It was first seen used when Tamago first appeared.
Viscount Hiyoko (ヒヨコ子爵 Hiyoko Shishaku?) is Tamago's second form. Tamago gains a beak and a pair of small wings, as well as two knives. Tamago is stated to be strengthened in this form, but any further abilities of this form have not been seen, as it was quickly destroyed by Pedro in its only seen use. In this form, he often adds "Peep" (ピヨ Piyo?) to the end of his sentences. "Hiyoko" means "chick" in Japanese.
Count Niwatori (ニワトリ伯爵 Niwatori Hakushaku?) is Tamago's third form. This form looks like an oversized rooster with complete wings, wattle, and comb, while retaining his mustache like in his previous form. It is stated to be a "true knight", but its abilities have not been shown. He is supposedly extremely resilient since he escaped seemingly unscathed after being engulfed by the explosion caused by Pedro at point blank range. In this form, he often adds "cluck" (コケ Koke?) to his speech. "Niwatori" means "chicken" in Japanese.
