After the Impel Down arc in One Piece, the concept of fruit awakening has become quite relevant in the show. We saw the first instance of what true awakening looks like when Doflamingo encircled the entirety of Dressrosa and almost destroyed it. Law and Kid’s Fruit Awakening in Wano has also become an interesting topic of discussion and we will be discussing it.
One Piece is an ongoing manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda that has been running for over 2 decades. It is the highest-selling manga series in history as well as 2nd highest-selling comic in the world, only behind Superman. One Piece’s story revolves around a young energetic pirate called Luffy who wants to become King of the Pirates.
What is Fruit Awakening?
What is Fruit Awakening? Well, if you’ve followed One Piece closely, you might have a good idea of what exactly the fruit awakening is. People who eat devil fruits are able to awaken their fruit and extract its fullest potential to use. However, it’s not as easy as it sounds.
Fruit awakening is a pretty rare phenomenon and only a few of the devil fruit users are able to achieve this. So far, we only know about Impel Down jail guards, Doflamingo, Kid and Law recently in Wano who are known to have awakened their fruit. But there are possibly other people as well who just haven’t confirmed yet.
In Fruit Awakening, the devil fruit user can have their ability affect their surroundings. One of the best examples of this is Doflamingo’s dome of string that came from above and surrounding the whole country. It was so strong that even swordsmen like Fujitora and Zoro were unable to break it. With Fruit Awakening, users can become stronger by multi-folds.
Law’s Fruit Awakening
Trafalgar D. Law has awakened his devil fruit in the recent chapter, however, there’s still an air of uncertainty about its effect. There’s a common belief among the One Piece community that Law’s fruit awakening can perform miracle surgery, however, it seems like that’s not the case.
After his fruit awakening, we saw Law using an only couple of major attacks. One of them even pierced through the head of Big Mom and Law become the first person to pierce blade through the skin of Big Mom. So it could be an effect of his fruit awakening, however, we believe there has to be something else.
If we go by the logic of “Awakened Fruits Affect Environment”, Law’s ability may allow him to use his room ability on a greater scale. Who knows, he might be able to relocate the entire Flower Capital to prevent Onigashima from falling over it. It’s all assumption but it will certainly become clear in the next chapter.
Kid’s Fruit Awakening
Like Law, Kid to has awakened his fruit. However, we still don’t know its full capability. So far, Kid has used Electromagnetic Cannon to blast Big Mo away after his awakening. So it’s possible that it could be a result of the devil fruit. But there’s also the possibility of something else.
Earlier, Law asked Kid about his secret weapon to which Kid replied that he wouldn’t tell him. He certainly has something up his sleeve that he will be using in the decisive moments against Big Mom. As for speculations, we have some of it.
It is a general assumption that Kid’s awakening will allow him to turn anything into a magnetic material. Which means that he would be able to control that thing as per his will. It could have an even bigger impact as it could allow him to change the properties of the islands as well.
