Considering the three types of Devil Fruits that has been explained are
1. Paramecia Type - where the user can get super human abilities and change their body parts into weapons, etc.
2. Zoan type - where the use can turn into a particular animal and inherit its abilities
3. Logia Type - where the user's body inherits a particular element and the body becomes like air which cannot be touched or damaged by non Haki users.

So what exactly is the type of Gomu Gomu no Mi?
It cannot be Zoan or Logia.
It's very close to a Paramecia but still doesn't have a logical explanation to be of Paramecia type!
So is it some special type of Devil Fruit?

  • How do you know that it can't be a logia? Maybe it's possible for logia to be based off of tangible elements too. – Sam I am says Reinstate Monica Oct 7 '13 at 18:29

    Gomu Gomu? The rubber one? That changes body parts? Also, wasn't it explicitly said several times that it was Paramecia? – Madara's Ghost Oct 7 '13 at 18:47

From the wiki.

The Gomu Gomu no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that enables the user's body to stretch like rubber, making the user a Rubber Human.

You further ask..

It's very close to a Paramecia but still doesn't have a logical explanation to be of Paramecia type!

Again from the wiki.

Paramecia is one of the three Devil Fruit types. These fruits give the users a power that can affect their body, manipulate the environment, or produce substances. In general, Paramecia Devil Fruits are fruits that give their users powers other than transforming into elements, like Logias, or transforming into animals, like Zoans.

I see the classifications as this:

Logia: Turns your body into some sort of energy

Zoan: Transforms you into an animal/legendary thing

Paramecia: THE REST

So is it Logia? NO. Is it Zoan? NO. Then it is a Paramecia.

  • oh and the wiki says it is a paramecia as iKlsR pointed out so yeah – Keale Oct 18 '13 at 5:52

It is mentioned on other websites then the wiki that it could be considered Logia. One of these examples is that Paramecia types can turn on and off, allowing changes of a person. The Gomu Gomu no Mi is a Devil Fruit which makes one like a rubber, permanently. You can not stop being rubber after congesting it. Meaning, it has traits of a Logia. It also comes along with the benefits that rubber has which is stretching, no blunt damage (without Haki), and no damage from electricity, and you could consider rubber an element.

  • Gomu Gomu no Mi is confirmed to be Paramecia by the author, discussions on any other forum (or wiki, for that matter) doesn't matter. – Masked Man Nov 29 '13 at 5:17
  • then we could say the same about buggy the clown , his ability is always active and can be sliced always then that means, he is logia too? NO still paramecia – xerido Jun 15 '15 at 7:43
  • It is the exact oposit. Logia can be turned on and off at will while Paramecia bring their own rules. E.g. Alvida can't turn off her Sube Sube no Mi either but Blackbeard can be fully human but (unlike every other Logia) not fully darkness. – hajef Jun 21 '17 at 9:24
