The Ape Ape Fruit, Model: Gorilla looks like a banana with a green peel and small brown spots near its top and bottom.
Strengths and WeaknessesEdit
As mentioned above, nearly every human capability is enhanced. Since this power is so limited on a human being, these are the onlt benefits worth listing. On the up side, if the user has already trained him/herself to become stronger and faster, then the combined strength of the user and his/her gorilla form will be greater than either of the two, as is standard with Zoans. Additionally, the nails and teeth of a gorilla are much sharper, making for great stabbing and slicing weapons when transformed. The user suffers from standard Devil Fruit weaknesses. Two other weaknesses are included. While the user is in his/her full gorilla form, s/he will be limited to walking on all fours. While s/he is still able to stand on his/her hind legs, his/her hips won't be able to support the weight for long, forcing the user to return to walking on his/her knuckles. This is considered a weakness due to the flaw of being unable to use one's hands as a gorilla. However, it's a rather useless weakness, since the user can still walk erect in his/her hybrid form, where his/her strength will be at its fullest.
The other weakness is the added weight while transformed. Gorillas are heavy creatures, so while the user won't suffer much with his/her speed, they will notice that s/he has become heavier, especially as a hybrid. In areas where weight is key, the user might find him/herself in a situation.
The main key factor to consider when a human eats this Devil Fruit is that humans and apes are genetically similiar. They both have opposable thumbs, for instance. So what use could someone get out of this power?
Well, for starters, gorillas are MUCH stronger than humans. So this fruit's power grants its user enhanced strength, speed, endurance, and stamina whenever he/she transforms into a full or hybrid gorilla. His/Her senses are also given a boost while in these states. Not much else is given, as this power is mainly meant for fighting, where such strength and speed is necessary.
