Horo Horo no Mi
Strengths & WeaknessesEdit
The major strength of the fruit stems from the ability to manifest different types of ghosts, called Hollows. These Hollows can be used for a variety of reasons, granting the fruit a major market in the utility function of combat. These Hollows are immune to physical attacks, but some are able to physically be interacted with, depending on the type of Hollow used.
The power of the hollows are not able to be blocked as they pass through bodies, such as causing negative emotions to reign supreme over someone's mind. However, it should be noted that those whose innate nature are congruent to the Hollow being used that they are ineffective in their task.
The larger the ghost, the more powerful the effect, but the slower the ghost moves and vice versa.
The Nikyu Nikyu no Mi seems to be a foil to the Horo Horo no Mi, as the Nikyu Nikyu powers allow the user to push intangible things away, granting them defense from ghosts swarming them.
Other than that, the user is affected by the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
The fruit's bestowed powers, as used by Willow, have been for the purpose of combat, information gathering and other utility purposes. Utilizing Negative Hollows, Willow whittles down his enemy's will to fight, determining those of whom are truly willing to give up their lives for their convictions. Utilizing his family's divination and his powers, Willow often speaks to ghosts that he summons for the purpose of gathering information.
Aside from Negative Hollows, there are a variety of different uses that the ghots can have, some even being able to interact with the world physically as if an extension of Willow's body.
- "Horo" is the Japanese way of pronouncing the word "Hollow", referring to the user's ghost-like powers.
- In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, it is called the Hollow-Hollow Fruit.
