A correspondence between Rici and DP in Neo's blog (656 - Samurai Buggy) caught my attention, an excerption from the blog below:
Rici: ... Croc's (DF ability) was able to dry everything and it was the sand fruit, not the dry fruit.
DP: A secondary ability of the Suna Suna no Mi is to absorb moisture. The Gomu Gomu no Mi isn't the Gear 2 Fruit now, is it? A lot of Devil Fruits have secondary abilities that don't have anything to do with their name.As explained above, Gomu Gomu no Mi, being a rubber fruit, has the potential to do Gear 2nd and 3rd, thanks to Luffy's (or rather Oda's) creativity and the explaination behind the development is logical too.
Same thing with Suna Suna no Mi in absorb moisture.
And another one that I can remember is Goro Goro no Mi being able to enhance his Mantra ability to greater heights due to "Because of the powers, he (Enel) is able to listen to the electrical sound waves that traverse the very air itself. Combined with his Mantra ability, it gives him a radar like sense of everything around him that makes it seem like he is omniscient like an actual god."
* Please correct if wrong *
Its an interesting observation how a DF ability can have a unique secondary ability. With this in mind, I am seeking to know more of any other fruits and its secondary ability. Do you know of any to add onto this knowledge? Mind to share?
Lastly before I pen off, if you can come up with a secondary ability for a fruit which has yet exists (NOT CREATE A NEW FRUIT, but a SECONDARY ABILITY for an existing fruit), feel free to share your creative idea(s) with the community.
Post your comment with 1) what devil fruit 2) what is the secondary ability 3) logical explaination for the secondary ability.
