The Ito Ito no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that grants the user the ability to create and manipulate strings, making the user a String Human (糸人間, Ito Ningen). It was found and eaten by Nogitsu on the Treasure Island Annunaki a few years after he left Zou.
- Ito (糸?) means "string" or "thread" in Japanese.
- In the FUNimation subs, it is called the String-String Fruit.
The Ito Ito no Mi is a gourd-shaped, pale lilac-colored fruit with the swirl pattern typical of Devil Fruits embedded all over it and a curly, fuchsia stem on its top.
The user is bestowed with the power to generate and control white, wafer-thin, razor sharp strings attachable to seemingly any surface (even non-solid targets such as clouds from seemingly any part of the own body (even the innards), though mostly seen protruding from the palms and fingertips, for many diverse purposes, such as manipulating people's movements in a way reminiscent of how puppeteers control puppets by connecting the strings to their spines, swiping the strings to slice through things like body parts and weapons similar to piano wire or monomolecular wire, attaching them to clouds for aerial transportation, and creating masses of bundled-up, compressed strings for various constructs such as ropes usable as whips, bullets, clones, a humongous cage-like force field or a massive spider web defense. Generally, it is unknown if there is a limit to the length and quantity of the strings producible.This Devil Fruit powers has been called highly versatile due to it's amazing ability to perform an emergency stitching of the user's internal organs.
The strings possess such enormous durability and tensile strength that extremely few things and people can cut, tear or otherwise damage them; At the same time, the strings' thinness makes it almost impossible to see them with the unaided eye, making it extremely difficult to avoid their path; most people who do not know of fruits power become completely unaware of how their bodies are moving against their will. Additionally, if "awoken", the Ito Ito no Mi's power also allows the consumer to transmute parts of the surrounding area like the ground and buildings into strings as well.
The strings are incapable of cutting Seastone (a nigh indestructible material that nullifies Devil Fruit powers) or anything made from the substance. Busoshoku Haki also helps others with preventing the strings to cut them. Also, the strings will disappear into thin air if the user loses consciousness. Besides that, the user is still affected by the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
