The Suke Suke no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that gives its user the ability to turn himself and anything he touches invisible, making the user an Invisible Human (透明人間 Tōmei Ningen?).[2] The invisibility effect can extend to objects like portable hand-strapped cannons[3] and small ships used for evacuation.[4] It was eaten by Absalom.[2]

EtymologyEdit

  • "Suke suke" means invisibility or transparency in Japanese.
  • *The "suke" in the fruit's name can also refer to "sukebe" (助け平?), which means "pervert" in Japanese (a motive for the current user).
  • "Suke" is an anagram for the word "kesu", which means "to erase" (as in the user's visual appearance).
  • In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, it is called the Clear-Clear Fruit.

Strengths and WeaknessesEdit

The Suke Suke no Mi's primary ability is to make the user invisible, but the user can also selectively turn anything they are in contact with invisible as well.[5] Because of this ability, the user can spy on conversations and people without being detected[6] as well as abduct people with no chance of being tracked.[7] This also allows them to carry hidden weapons to attack with, such as bazookas.[3] They can even turn entire ships invisible in order to make a concealed getaway.[4]

The main flaw of this ability is that the user's presence can be briefly revealed if they are covered by something, such as water,[8] salt,[9] or blood,[10] giving their opponent a chance to notice them.[9][10] Another weakness is that if the user gets too close to an opponent, they might get struck if the opponent gets in a lucky hit.[11] Also, the opponent may resort to other senses (such as hearing[12] or smelling[11]) in order to detect the invisible user. Additionally, invisible objects will instantly become visible once they are no longer in contact with the user.[3] The fruit's ability will also wear off for a few seconds if the user is hit by a powerful blow.[13] Other than that, the user suffers from the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.

UsageEdit

Absalom uses the ability to turn invisible to aid him in combat; he claimed that his powers only serve as a supplementary to the modifications made to his body.[14] He also uses his invisibility to peep on and sexually harass women.[15][16]

Named TechniquesEdit

  • Skating (透明化(スケーティング) Sukētingu?, literally meaning "Transparent Form"): Absalom turns his entire body invisible. In combat, this is primarily used as in preparation for performing other techniques. This technique was first used against several of the Straw Hats on the Thousand Sunny,[1] but was first named against Sanji.[17] The name of this technique is a pun on the term "Suke". This is called Invisiskating in the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub.
  • Shisha no Te (死者の手 Shisha no Te?, literally meaning "Dead Man's Hand"): Absalom aims one or both of his arms at an enemy and fires the bazookas on his arms; however, since the bazookas and their ammunition are invisible, the resulting attack appears to be some sort of concussive blast as the ammunition flies forward without being seen. This technique was first used against Sanji's zombie, Inuppe,[18] but was named[19] and explained[20] during Absalom's battle against Sanji. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Hands of the Dead.
  • Kaijin no Te (怪人の手 Kaijin no Te?, literally meaning "Mysterious Person's Hands"): While invisible, Absalom punches his opponent multiple times. This was first used against Sanji.[21] In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Mystery Man Handler, doubling as a pun referring to his earlier molestations of Robin and Nami.
  • Kaijin no Ashi (怪人の足 Kaijin no Ashi?, literally meaning "Mysterious Person's Legs"): While invisible, Absalom kicks his opponent multiple times. This was first used against Sanji.[21] In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, this is called Mystery Man Kicker.

TriviaEdit

  • Sanji claimed that he wanted to eat the Suke Suke no Mi because he wanted to be a super hero (though in reality, he just wanted to peek at women's baths).[22] Sanji hated Absalom even more because he ate the Suke Suke no Mi.[23] However, though this was the only Devil Fruit that Sanji was ever interested in, he lost interest in the fruit after his fight with Absalom, deciding that he shall just have to peek on women anyway without it.[24]
