- "Kuku" is short for Kukku (クック?), the Japanese pronunciation of "cook".
- In the official English translation, it is called the Cook-Cook Fruit.
Strengths and WeaknessesEdit
With this fruit, the user has easy access to food to feed themselves and others just by transforming an object into it. The user does not even need to cook the food. However, while the food created by the user can provide nourishment, it apparently tastes poorly, as Big Mom remarked. Other than that, the user is still affected by the standard Devil Fruit weakness.
Sixty-three years ago, Streusen was seen making meat out of a log by cutting it, and was immediately able to eat the meat. Streusen is very skilled in using his Devil Fruit, as he was able to transform an entire castle into food in an instant.
- Veränderung Gourmet (変化食(フェアエンデルングルメ) Feaenderun Gurume?, meaning "Transformation Food"): Streusen stabs his sword into an object and transforms it into food. It was first used to change the collapsing Whole Cake Chateau into a real sponge cake with whipped cream in order to save the people on it and the residents of Sweet City below from the debris. Veränderung is German for "change". This technique is called Gourmetamorphosis in the VIZ manga.
- This fruit bears similarity to several other Devil Fruits:
- Both this and the Ato Ato no Mi can transform everyday objects according to the user's imagination.
- The fruit is similar to Kanjuro's unnamed Devil Fruit as both can create foodstuffs that, while nourishing, have poor taste.
- The fruit can be considered an inverse of Tama's unnamed Devil Fruit, in that it instead produces food from the user's own body rather than from their surrounding environment and the food produced, while delicious, can apparently not be eaten by the user.
- This Devil Fruit's name is reminiscent of Streusen's signature laughter, "Kukukuku". He shares this attribute with Edward Newgate and his Gura Gura no Mi ("Gurararara") and Perona and her Horo Horo no Mi ("Horohorohoro").
- This is the first and so far only Devil Fruit with a name composed of a single katakana. In this case, Ku (ク?)
