Japanese Name: バリバリの実
Romanized Name: Bari Bari no Mi
Official English Name: Barrier-Barrier Fruit
Meaning: Barrier
Usage Debut: Chapter 708; Episode 637[1]
Type: Paramecia
Current User: Bartolomeo[2]

The Bari Bari no Mi is a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit that allows the user to generate barriers for defending or striking at will, turning the user into a Barrier Human (バリア人間 Baria Ningen?).[2] Bari comes from baria, the Japanese way of pronouncing the word "barrier". In the Viz Manga and FUNimation subs, it is called the Barrier-Barrier Fruit. It was eaten by Bartolomeo.

Strengths and WeaknessesEdit

Bartolomeo Power

Bartolomeo's invisible barrier breaking Hack's hand.

The main strength of this fruit is that it allows the user to form invisible barriers, though they can be solidified to become visibly transparent, resembling a pane of glass. This protects the user from attacks from either front or back. The barriers are strong enough to defend against even a fishman's punch that can shatter 4000 tiles, which injured said fishman's hand in return.[1] Even the shock wave produced from Elizabello II's punch, which could allegedly take down an entire fortress, could not breach the shield, nor the area behind it. Bartolomeo has a high estimation of his barriers' strength, as he was confident that they were "unbreakable" and could stop the Birdcage.[3] The shield can also be used for offensive purposes by launching it forward to create powerful forces to strike the targets, or to deflect forces sent by enemies right back at them. According to Bartolomeo, he can create his barriers by crossing his fingers.[2]

Another strength of this fruit is that Bartolomeo can form solid constructs out of his barriers, such as stairs which people can stand on, making this fruit useful for getting to hard-to-reach places.[4]

According to Oda, the barriers created can cover a range of 50,000 Bari Baris.[5]

It is unknown if the barriers have a damage limit, but so far the ability appears to react depending on the strength of incoming force, as Bellamy was able to injure Bartolomeo with an outstretched hand, rather than with a strike.[2] Bartolomeo has also stated that the barriers are not soundproof.[6] An additional limitation is that he can only produce one barrier at a time[7], and there is a maximum total surface area of that Bartolomeo can produce at once[4]; examples of the hazardousness of this weakness include being unable to completely block Pica's giant stone fist[8], as well as being incapable of producing more barriers after crafting a staircase out of them.[4] The barriers are also not entirely immovable by outside forces, as seen when Bartolomeo tried to block the Birdcage.[3] Besides these weaknesses, it shares the standard weaknesses of Devil Fruits.

UsageEdit

Bartolomeo uses the fruit's power to protect himself in combat, sitting idly by while his unsuspecting foes attack him and injure themselves.[1] He can also use the shields offensively to strike down and repel his targets,[2] or even as walls to immobilize and crush his victims.[9]

The barriers can also be used for supplementary purposes, such as foothold, and Bartolomeo can form them into stairways to reach higher areas.[4]

TechniquesEdit

Barrier Crash

Barrier Crash.

  • Barrier (バリア Baria?): Bartolomeo activates his fruit's ability by crossing his fingers, causing a transparent barrier to appear which can protect him from attacks. So far, two shapes for his barrier have been seen, a rectangular barrier and a semi-spherical barrier.[10]
    • Barrier Crash (バリアクラッシュ Baria Kurasshu?): Bartolomeo forms a transparent barrier in front of himself and sends it towards the enemy at high speed, smashing it against them. The attack is powerful enough to defeat Elizabello II and create a shock wave. It was first shown being used against Elizabello in Corrida Colosseum right after it shielded Bartolomeo from the King Punch.[2]
    • Barrier Bulls (バリア突進牛(ブルズ) Baria Buruzu?, literally meaning "Barrier Charging Bull"): Bartolomeo forms a curved transparent rectangular barrier in front of himself and moves forward along with the created barrier, knocking and mowing everything on his path like a bulldozer. First shown against Gladius and some of Doflamingo's soldiers, as well as Cavendish who was in the way.[11]
  • Barrierbility (流動防壁(バリアビリティ) Bariabiriti?, literally meaning "Flux Barrier"): Bartolomeo activates this fruit's ability by squeezing his hands while crossing his fingers to change the shape of barrier into various forms while keeping the barriers' hardness.
    • Stairs (階段(ステアーズ) Suteāzu?): He changes the shape of his barriers into a flight of stairs, allowing him or his allies to move freely in the air while protecting them from attacks coming from below. It was first shown being used to help Luffy and Law reach the fourth level of the King's Plateau.[4]
    • Racket (ラケット Raketto?): He changes the shape of his barriers into a large racket. He can extend this barrier to protect somebody or something with this ability. It was first shown being used to protect Nico Robin from Gladius' Catapult Punc attack.[11]
  • Barrier Ball (バリアボール Baria Bōru?): Bartolomeo creates a spherical barrier, preventing whatever is inside from exiting and whatever is outside from penetrating. It was first shown being used in an attempt to contain Gladius' attacks.[7]
Bartolomeo Defeats Gladius

Bari Bari no Pistol.

  • Homage Shinken: Bari Bari no Pistol (オマージュ神拳 バリバリの銃(ピストル) Omāju Shinken: Bari Bari no Pisutoru?, literally meaning "Homage God's Fist: Bari Bari Pistol"): Bartolomeo forms a small barrier around his fist and then punches an opponent, using the barrier to amplify the strength of the punch. It was first seen being used to finish off Gladius.[7] It is an obvious and intentional homage to Luffy's Gomu Gomu no Pistol.

Anime and manga DifferencesEdit

  • In the anime, Bartolomeo claims he's unable to deploy barriers if he can't cross his fingers,[12] contradicting to when he encased his fist to strike down Gladius.

TriviaEdit

  • It can be considered ironic that Bartolomeo has this Devil Fruit because while his behavior is generally provoking, this Devil Fruit is defensive by nature.
  • The sign Bartolomeo performs with his fingers when summoning his barrier is commonly known in Japan as either to repel "bad things" or provoke others by saying they are being repelled as they said "bad things".
