The following accommodates spoilers for One Piece Chapter 1063, “My Only Family,” by Eiichiro Oda, Stephen Paul and Vanessa Satone, obtainable in English from Viz Media.
Back in One Piece Chapter 1047, “The Sky Over the Capital,” Kaidō made the daring declare that Haki may transcend all the pieces, together with Devil Fruit skills. To again his declare, he cited how Gol D. Roger grew to become King of the Pirates with out ever consuming a Devil Fruit. From what’s been seen all through the collection, he may be proper.
There are a number of cases of Haki getting used to assault and defend in opposition to Devil Fruit customers. Some have even been proven utterly overcoming the extra summary skills after they’ve already taken impact. From what’s been proven, there needs to be a number of extra Devil Fruit powers, each seen and unseen, that may theoretically be overwhelmed with Haki.
A standard software of Armament Haki is attacking Logia Devil Fruit customers. Normally, Logia customers’ amorphous our bodies are proof against bodily assaults. However, Armament Haki bypasses this intangibility and permits the consumer to strike the opponent anyway. It may even be used to assault Logia customers whose our bodies are product of a harmful substance like Caesar Clown’s poisonous gasoline. With Armament Haki, altering one’s type simply makes one an even bigger goal.
Even if a Devil Fruit makes a consumer harmful to the touch, one can mission their Haki outwards to assault the goal anyway. Luffy demonstrated this when he punched Kaidō after the Emperor set himself on fireplace. The Straw Hat captain may additionally have the ability to do that if he goes up in opposition to Akainu once more sooner or later. Since his assaults now not require bodily contact, he can technically punch anyone.
Armament Haki may also be used in opposition to different varieties of Devil Fruit Users who would usually have the ability to reduce direct assault harm. This has been proven quite a few instances with Luffy’s Gum-Gum Fruit, but it surely must also work in opposition to Alvida’s Slip-Slip Fruit and Jozu’s Twinkle-Twinkle Fruit. However a Devil Fruit could enhance the consumer’s defenses, a Haki consumer can assault them by means of these defenses.
Speaking of defenses, a powerful sufficient Haki consumer may push back the influences of a Devil Fruit energy used on them. This skill was first established throughout the Worst Generation’s battle with the Emperors on Onigashima; Law could not use his Op-Op powers to teleport Kaidō or Big Mom into the ocean due to their overwhelming Haki. Besides the Op-Op Fruit, there are a number of Devil Fruits that may have summary results on the opponent. Fruits like Foxy’s Slow-Slow Fruit, Bartholomew Kuma’s Paw-Paw Fruit, and Giolla’s Art-Art Fruit all make use of skills that immediately affect a goal’s state of being. As such, their powers can theoretically be defended in opposition to with sufficient Haki.
Haki can equally be used to beat the consequences of a Devil Fruit which have already taken maintain. In Chapter 1063, “My Only Family,” Law Demonstrated what he realized from the Emperors to beat a illness of Doc Q’s Sick-Sick Fruit. This wasn’t simply one thing easy like a cough, both; the Feminization Disease restructured Law’s anatomy and turned him into a girl. That Haki may very well be used to undo such a dramatic change reveals the usefulness of the method. It additionally reveals how a lot of what a Devil Fruit does is due to the flexibility itself relatively than antagonistic results. The extra these results are a results of the Devil Fruit, the extra possible that it may be overcome with Haki.
As with nullifying a Devil Fruit, undoing a Fruit’s affect to this diploma should have a number of extra functions. Besides beating the Sick-Sick Fruit, it would equally have the ability to undo the consequences of Magellan’s Venom-Venom Fruit and Emporio Ivankov’s Horm-Horm Fruit. If an individual can have their whole anatomy restructured by a Devil Fruit and nonetheless expel its influences, they have to have the ability to do the identical with skills which have much less dramatic results.
Of course, this nullification assumes that Devil Fruit have not taken an excessive amount of of a toll on them. For instance, if somebody have been turned partially to stone by Boa Hancock’s Love-Love Fruit, they may have the ability to undo that. However, these turned utterly to stone would lose consciousness and cognitive operate; at that time, they in all probability could not change themselves again irrespective of how a lot Haki that they had. Thus, related Fruits to be careful for could be Sugar’s Hobby-Hobby Fruit, Charlotte Smoothie’s Wring-Wring Fruit, and Tsuru’s Wash-Wash Fruit. Haki customers’ finest protection in opposition to these sorts of skills could be stopping them from taking impact within the first place.
If an individual has superior Haki management, something is feasible. This method offers them the means to take care of any sort of Devil Fruit energy each offensively and defensively. Even if these powers are one thing absurd that warp actuality and defy logic, sturdy sufficient Haki consumer can overcome it. In these regards, Kaidō was proper to say that Haki transcends all.
