The '''Toge Toge no Mi''' is a [[Paramecia]]-type [[Devil Fruit]] that allows the user to grow spikes on any part of his or her body, and turn any body part entirely into a spike, making the user a {{Nihongo|'''Spike Human'''|棘人間|''Toge Ningen''}}.{{qref|name=Spikewoman|chap=190|ep=117|page=16|Miss Doublefinger explains her Devil Fruit ability.}} "Toge" (棘) means "spike". In the [[Viz]] Manga and [[4Kids]] and [[FUNimation]] dubs, it is called the '''Spike-Spike Fruit'''. It was eaten by [[Paula]], better known by her [[Baroque Works]] alias Miss Doublefinger.{{qref|name=Spikewoman}}
 
 
==Strengths and Weaknesses==
 
All the spikes are capable of going through rock walls. The user can also somehow utilize "Toge doping" to greatly increase their muscle mass.{{qref|name=Toge doping|chap=192|ep=118|Miss Doublefinger shows "something interesting" to Nami.}} Furthermore the user can walk on walls and ceilings, by producing spikes on the feet and stepping into the surface, gaining hold that way. Paula was also able to increase her speed by spawning long spikes on the soles of her shoes, allowing her to make greater steps more quickly. The Toge Toge no Mi also grants great defensive powers, especially on close range, as struggling against the spikes will usually result in injuries. Nami injured her foot when she tried to force Paula back at the end of her fight.
 
 
Their spikes could possibly get them stuck into the rocks they have plunged, leaving them open for an attack.{{qref|chap=191|ep=117|Miss Doublefinger gets entangled in Nami's mantle.}} Nami also demonstrated that it's possible to hinder a Toge Toge no Mi user by getting them tangled into cloth or something similar, as the spikes will be stuck and can be forced away.
 
 
Other than that, the user is also affected by the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
 
 
==Usage==
 
The main usage of this fruit's ability is for combat. Miss Doublefinger's attacks mainly involve the use of her Toge Toge no Mi powers to stab her enemies. Apart from that, the fruit allows her to greatly increase her foothold by extending the spikes into the ground.{{qref|chap=191|Miss Doublefinger uses her Devil Fruit powers to ambush Nami by standing on the back of a bridge.}}
 
 
Below is a list of her named techniques:
 
 
* {{Nihongo|'''Double Stinger'''|ダブルスティンガー|Daburu Sutingā}}: Miss Doublefinger turns her hands into spikes and uses them in a rapid-fire stabbing barrage. In the anime the attack was not named.{{qref|name=Toge attacks|''One Piece Manga and Anime'' — Vol. 21 [[Chapter 191|Chapters 191]]–[[Chapter 193|193]] and [[Episode 117|Episodes 117]]–[[Episode 118|118]], Miss Doublefinger uses her Devil Fruit powers against Nami.}}
 
 
* {{Nihongo|'''Stinger Finger'''|スティンガーフィンガー|Sutingā Fingā}}: Miss Doublefinger turns her fingers into long spikes and either stabs or slashes her opponent with them. This is called '''Finger Stinger''' in the Viz Manga and 4Kids and FUNimation dub.{{qref|name=Toge attacks}}
 
 
[[File:Stinger Hedgehog.png|thumb|210px|Miss Doublefinger attacking with Stinger Hedgehog.]]
 
* {{Nihongo|'''Stinger Hedgehog'''|スティンガーヘッジホッグ|Sutingā Hejjihoggu}}: One of her more destructive attacks, she first rolls her body into a ball, then sprouts spikes in all directions giving her the appearance of a sea urchin. In this mode she can attack by either dropping straight down on top of her opponent or by rolling along the ground and leveling everything in her path. In the Viz Manga and 4Kids and FUNimation dubs, this is called '''Hedgehog Stinger'''.{{qref|name=Toge attacks}}
 
 
* {{Nihongo|'''Sewing Stinger'''|ソーイングスティンガー|Sōingu Sutingā}}: Miss Doublefinger sprouts one long spike from the bottom of each foot then runs along the ground using the spikes as stilts to trample and shred anything in her path. The way she walks makes the spikes look like needles on a sewing machine hence the name. In the 4Kids dub, this is called '''Stilleto Stinger'''.{{qref|name=Toge attacks}}
 
 
* {{Nihongo|'''Stinger Step'''|スティンガーステップ|Sutingā Suteppu}}: Miss Doublefinger sprouts tons of spikes on the bottom of her foot and stomps her opponent with them. This is called '''Stinger Stomp''' in the Viz Manga and 4Kids dub.{{qref|name=Toge attacks}}
 
 
* {{Nihongo|'''Sea Urchin Stinger'''|シー・アーチンスティンガー|Shī Āchan Sutingā}}: Similar in nature to the '''Stinger Hedgehog''', but this time she turns only her hair into a sea urchin-like spike ball and charges her opponent.{{qref|name=Toge attacks}}
 
 
[[File:Stinger Flail.png|thumb|210px|Miss Doublefinger using Stinger Flail after 'doping'.]]
 
* {{Nihongo|'''Toge Toge Doping'''|トゲトゲ針治療(ドーピング)|Toge Toge Dōpingu|literally meaning "Spike Spike Acupuncture"}}: Apparently some form of acupuncture technique where Miss Doublefinger turns her fingers on both hands into spikes, then stabs herself in the shoulders. This causes her arms to enlarge and become extremely muscular, like some kind of doping. This is called '''Spike-U-Puncture''' in the Viz Manga and 4Kids dub and '''Spike-Spike Doping''' in the FUNimation dub. In the 4Kids dub, the scene where she stabs herself is cut out, and her arms just bulk up for no apparent reason.{{qref|name=Toge doping}}{{qref|name=Toge attacks}}
 
 
:* {{Nihongo|'''Stinger Flail'''|スティンガーフレイル|Sutingā Furail}}: Using her enlarged arms from the '''Toge Toge Doping''' technique she sprouts small spikes all along her arms and uses them as lethal clubs. This is called '''Stinger Rampage''' in the Viz Manga and 4Kids dub.{{qref|name=Toge attacks}}
 
 
==Trivia==
 
* In a response to a fan, Oda explained why Miss Doublefinger's powers look like they were coming from her clothes. He replied that if the spikes that she produced had ripped through her clothes like they could, the story would become unnecessarily "erotic".{{qref|sbs=24|fan question: How is it that the spikes from Miss Doublefinger's "Toge Toge no Mi" powers come out of her clothes?}}
 
*Her ''Stinger Hedgehog'' technique is similar to [http://wikipedia.com/wiki/Sonic_the_Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog]'s spin dash technique.

==Strengths and Weaknesses==
The Ito Ito no Mi provides the user the ability to manipulate people with strings, as well as use the strings as means to cut through matter such as body parts or weapons. The strings can also be used to connect to clouds, thus providing air transportation.{{Qref|name=c724}} The maximum length of these strings is unknown, but is long enough to reach from Green Bit to Dressrosa, as well as connect to the clouds. The strings can be compressed in bundles for various constructions.{{Qref|name=c724}}

The strength of these strings is such that the victims are unable to resist Doflamingo hijacking their mobility, while sharp enough to cut through the flesh and bones of [[Little Oars Jr.]]{{qref|name=Cut|chap=555|ep=464|page=17|Doflamingo severs Little Oars Jr.'s leg with his ability.}} and firearms with ease. Every one of his victims being controlled was unable to resist his powers and therefore was rendered completely helpless. This ability is even powerful enough to stop the physically strong "Diamond" [[Jozu]] in his tracks, preventing him from further attacking [[Crocodile]].{{qref|name=Control|chap=560|chap2=561|ep=469|ep2=470|page=17-18 + 7|Doflamingo controls Jozu.}}

As stated by Law, one of this ability's weaknesses is that if there are no clouds in the sky, Doflamingo has nothing to attach his threads to, which in turn prevents him from being able to travel in mid-air.{{Qref|name=c724}} Besides that, the user is still affected by the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
