For a while now, fans of One Piece have been aware that two of its formidable villains, Enel and Perona, possess extraordinary powers bestowed upon them by Devil Fruits. These enigmatic fruits grant users extraordinary and unconventional abilities, becoming central elements in the anime and manga’s narrative. Enel wields dominion over lightning, while Perona commands the summoning and manipulation of ghosts. Based on their powers alone, it’s relatively easy to discern which fruit corresponds to each antagonist.
Indeed, the fruit bearing a resemblance to a mango, with its exterior etched in the likeness of lightning bolts, is known as the Goro Goro no Mi, which granted Enel his formidable lightning-based abilities. Conversely, the fruit that mirrors a cluster of bananas, complete with watchful eyes, is named the Horo Horo no Mi. This fruit bestowed upon Perona the ability to command the very ghosts she wields in battle.
While these antagonists’ consumption of the Devil Fruits is not recent news in the One Piece universe, the actual appearance of these fruits remained a mystery until very recently. Creator Eiichiro Oda exclusively unveiled their designs in One Piece Magazine volume 17, as reported by ComicBook.
Even after more than two decades since its inception, both the manga and the anime continue to captivate audiences with the pirate-filled world of One Piece. This is exemplified by the Netflix live-action adaptation of One Piece, which has retained its position at the forefront of the streaming service’s Top 10 list in the TV category for three weeks following its highly acclaimed debut. The enduring popularity of One Piece stands as a testament to its enduring appeal and the enduring legacy it holds in the realm of entertainment.
