7 reasons why the Goro Goro no Mi is the strongest devil fruit and the 1 reason why is not

In my honest opinion I see the Goro Goro no Mi devil fruit as the most powerful in the One Piece universe. The only one I can honestly see easily defeating this devil fruit power is no other than the Gomu Gomu no mi user (Luffy). All other contenders will have zero chance (even with Busoshoku Haki) against the millions of volts generated from the Goro Goro no Mi fruit. Here are 7 reasons I believe makes this fruit the most powerful (read until the end because this fruit has one massive flaw). Let’s start with the most important point.

1. Opponents will not be able to withstand the entirety of the fight

This is the main reason why I mentioned that opponents with Busoshoku Haki have no chance against this fruit. Is known that the more Haki is used, the faster it will deplete. If you combine that with having to receive constant million volts electric attacks, the Haki will surely deplete faster, if the opponent manages to keep standing. Another reason is because of the main drawback of Busoshoku Haki:

“When two opponents using Busoshoku Haki clash, the one with the stronger Busoshoku Haki is more likely to be victorious. This can make it difficult to overcome an opponent's Haki in a brute force battle.”

This means that if the Goro Goro no Mi user combines Busoshoku Haki with electric attacks the chances of the opponent to win are nearly zero. It doesn’t matter if their Haki is stronger, all the Goro Goro no Mi user needs to do is continue to attack with electricity and discharge it every time their opponent touch them.

2. Can move and attack at the speed of lightning

This fruit allows the user to move incredibly fast and even merge with solid matter for traveling purposes. If the fruit user were to be constantly on the move, merging with solid matter to perform flanking maneuvers, and at the same time attacking from both short and long range, the opponent will have a really tough fight in their hands (if they manage to withstand it. See point 1). This alone guarantees the Goro Goro no Mi user victory against any opponent (other than Luffy of course).

3. Can melt gold (hence other materials) and create weapons

Gold melting point is 1,948 °F, meanwhile a  bolt of lightning can reach 53,540 °F. The Goro Goro no Mi user has more than enough of a heat source to put nearly anything in flames or melt it down, as long as is flammable or conducts electricity. From what we seen so far the gold was melted by touching it, so with that in mind the Goro Goro no Mi user will be even more deadly in close quarter combat.

Also the user will be able to create any type of melee weapons they want with gold, meaning they can be experts in several weapons, making it even more difficult to defeat them. Another thing is that with the gold weapon they will be able transmit electric discharges in every attack without their opponent ever touching their physical bodies.

4. Can transform into “giant” form (Amaru)

For anyone (other than Luffy) fighting against the Amaru transformation is basically a death sentence. No one will be able to even touch the Goro Goro no Mi user in this state since 200,000,000 volts of pure electricity are involved. How many attacks in this form will the opponent will be able to withstand and more importantly for how long?

5. Can listen to electrical sound waves

Not only is this user deadly in short and long range combat, it also has the ability to listen to sound waves that traverse the air. This allows to analyze their surrounding with options to attack with either stealth or from insanely far away. The Goro Goru no Mi user will even be able to determine battle movements of entire armies and attack/defend accordingly.

6. Has a “Nuclear Weapon” attack

The Raigo attack is strong enough to destroy an entire island in a couple of seconds. The downside is it takes way too much time to create and it needs a source to create the thunder clouds, but once is created and launched the target will be completely destroyed.

7. Can jump start heart

If the opponent manages to win after a long battle the Goru Goru no Mi user can jump start their heart and continue fighting. At this point the opponent will most likely be unable to carry on the fight, let alone continue to withstand more electric attacks.

Now the one reason why the Goro Goru ni Mi fruit is not the strongest fruit is because of this guy

YES the actual Goro Goro no Mi user is the biggest problem this devil fruit has. Eneru is insane in so many levels is absurd. He sees himself as an invincible divine god, ruler of everything, and because of this he doesn’t even care about his battles, hardly being serious, mostly absorbing attacks and humiliating weaker targets. But when he does not prevail (as it happened with Luffy) he gets completely overwhelmed by fear, cowardliness and in the case of Luffy he started to avoid him to keep his delusional “invincible” status he self proclaimed as having. Also his lifestyle is a huge problem, he spent it sleeping or eating in his residence while attending his so called “godly duties”. Of course he will see himself as a god of all, he his governing weak people with no challenge or immediate threat. He also doesn’t care about anyone other than himself and has no pity against his own subordinates. His only ambition is being the ruler of everything, returning to where god should be (apparently the moon). Because of these reasons the Goro Goro no Mi is completely wasted in Eneru.

That’s why I didn’t mention Eneru even once in the 7 reasons why the Goro Goro no Mi is the most powerful devil fruit. If someone else were to have that devil fruit and that person had a strong conviction to help others, defend their comrades with her life and have a very friendly/social nature (no god-complex whatsoever), she will be completely unstoppable. No one will be able to beat her since she will not fight just for herself. She will have a bigger purpose to keep going and being friendly will be a massive plus.

To sum up the Goru Goru no Mi devil fruit is in my opinion the most powerful fruit, but is completely wasted in Eneru. The fruit fit’s the character very well in the One Piece universe, but I can see him being defeated by many tough contenders no problem, even when he has the most powerful devil fruit and Mantra.

Reddit Discussion

Good discussion on One Piece sub-reddit. I found interesting the arguments regarding the Ope Ope no Mi fruit as the best fruit.

    what would happen if Enel could survive long enough against kaido to use the Raigo. and if he did go down he could resart his heart so he could keep going. but would the Raigo be strong enough to take down kaido.

    Rubber isnt the only insulator. Diamond has carbon-carbon bonds that are covalent in nature, meaning they’re shared specifically between two carbon atoms. They are not free to move about the solid. This is why diamond is an electrical insulator, meaning whoever has eaten the diamond fruit would also be immune to Enels attacks and would be aven better than rubber as using heat and physical atttacks would be even less effective.

    • Anonymous on July 29, 2021 at 03:09

      Actually diamond has a melting point of 7,280° Fahrenheit.
      A lightning bolt can reach 53,540° Fahrenheit meaning they would melt instantly with just a touch.
      The only thing stopping this devil fruit is the user no one else

    the question is can enel hurt kaido

    • Anonymous on April 13, 2021 at 10:09

      Maybe because like the dude said enel wasted the fruits potential

    There is a loophole in oda’s theory, one can melt gold using electricity due to heat but how can he turn it in a weapon when blacksmith use hammers to give shape to it put the element in water to cool it and make it hard. If enel were to use hotness to melt gold and use it as a weapon it should have been like us throwing bucket of water at holi. One can easily escape his attack by jiggle. At best he can just throw melted elements at you if he were to melt things and use it as weapon. To summarize, enel melting elements and using it as weapon is just useful to escape

    These are solid arguments, I’ll give you that. But let’s be real, many logia type Devil Fruit users could fight the Goro Goro no Mi to a draw. Logia fruit users’ bodies become whatever element the fruit is. A perfect example is Firefist Ace. He cannot be shot or physically hurt because his body is literally fire. That being said it was shown that Akainu could hurt him because his magma powers burned hotter than Ace’s flame powers. So it definitely does depend on the devil fruit ability match up. But here is my next argument. Marshall D. Teach. He has the Yami Yami no Mi, which is a completely unique Logia type that can nullify the abilities of other Devil Fruits. He can create a black hole with any part of his body. So he can literally just absorb any lightning bolts flung at him. Not to mention Oda explicitly states in the series that the Yami Yami no Mi is the strongest Devil Fruit. Another person I think would fight any Goro Goro no Mi user to a draw is Marco the Phoenix. He literally can’t die unless you nullify his Devil Fruit.

    • VigneshRM on April 8, 2020 at 00:31

      Oda never said that Yami is the strongest. If so, show me source. Lightning is far hotter than fire or magma, so he should easily be able to hurt ace. The Yami Yami no mi makes the user take even more dmg because it sucks everything in, enel can just fucking bombard Blackbeard with lightning bolts which should kill him. Yami can only nullify devil fruits if they touch the user. But I agree that Marco’s fruit might be able to defeat goro, in my opinion marco’s fruit is the strongest.

        The goro gori my is based of voltage. Just voltage

        • Rudolf on October 14, 2020 at 14:45

          He only said the voltage but we could se that amps was present he literally fried people.

    • Anonymous on April 13, 2021 at 10:11

      i agree with you

    • Anonymous on July 6, 2021 at 01:46

      Akainu defeat Ace because of his magma power and also his haki.

  6. Nebbus on February 27, 2019 at 17:05

    And the temperature you can create with the Pika Pika no Mi is (scientifically) several millions of times hotter than the core of the sun…

  7. PsyKoPat on August 25, 2018 at 18:36

    There is luffy , but what about the mink tribe ? They can conduct electricity…
    And what if another devil fruit that is resistant to electricity appears ?
    (Magma is part stone and fire, so this should be able to counter thunder…
    Or a new devil fruit like wood or just immortality…)

    • Luan on October 8, 2018 at 22:25

      Lightning is hotter than Magma.

  8. FunTownGanes on July 16, 2018 at 15:57

    (SPOILER ALERT) imagine luffy gets eneru’s devil fruit after he dies and eats it like blackbeard, he would be nearly unstoppable.

    • CXG on March 28, 2019 at 07:43

      I agree with all but the weapons master one. Its true that gold can be manipulated because he can melt it..but a true devil fruit user should explore and adventure around the world. You cant be a weapons master just by having the weapon..gotta find a teacher. And the whole “gold” thing should be thrown out..because any conductive metal will do. Silver is actually the most conductive metal so that would be a better choice for weapons (even as the core of the weapon if they want to have stronger more durable outer layer, then on the handle he has contact points he can pass electricity through, and then along the blade). You also still need a master of weapons to train you in all those weapons. Or pick one you can master and just dont fuck up!

  9. Tristan on March 30, 2018 at 04:38

    What about earth based logias should be able to run off the lighting and ground it or even certain msytic zoan could beat it or a haki user from a distance

    • Rudolf on October 14, 2020 at 14:49

      Which mystic zoans. If u can’t fly u can’t beat him. He can attack from miles above you. U won’t even know what hits u.

  10. Eneru on December 13, 2017 at 15:43

    Eh the fruit is not weak because of enel. Its mostly that he never met somebody like Luffy. Enel was proficient in his combat skills. Having so many attacks, can use mantra, and is smart aswell. These 3 alone combined make him a fearful opponent.
    Enel is a very skilled warrior. And he probably is even more skilled now after the timeskip.
