Tatsu Tatsu no Mi
|Translation||Dragon Dragon Fruit|
|English Name||Dragon Dragon Fruit|
|Story / Creator||Viva la Vida by Cyberweasel89|
The fruit looks like a green raspberry with blue leaves, swirls covering the fruit and leaves.
The major strength of the fruit is that transformation into a dragon or dragon-human hybrid gives the user access to wings, fire breath, claws, sharp teeth, and protective scales. Normally, the full dragon would also grant the user an increase in size, but Muramasa is a Giant, so he actually decreases in size slightly.
The major weakness of the fruit is that the user will become vulnerable to a dragon's natural weakness: Tigers.
As Muramasa is peaceful, he rarely uses his Devil Fruit for combat. He mostly relies on his fire breath in hybrid form to help him with his smithing and forging. As he cannot fit inside the Outlaw Pirates's ship, he uses his full dragon form to fly above it, only coming down when needed (he keeps a Den Den Mushi with him so the rest of the crew can call him while's he's flying). The Outlaw Pirates's second ship has a special area modeled that can fit him, but he mostly flies above while the crew has their first ship.
However, in the few times that Muramasa has been forced into combat, he has shown that his Devil Fruit can make him an even more capable fighter than the average Giant. With his razor-sharp claws and immense strength, he can shred and tear through strong defenses. His sharp teeth can bite apart any weapon or structure. With his wings, he can generate winds to blow groups of enemies away. And with his fire breath, he can set an entire area ablaze. His powerful tail is also capable of sweeping down armies and knocking down buildings.
- This Devil Fruit is not to be confused with the Ryu Ryu no Mi.
- "Ryu" and "Tatsu" are both two different Japanese words that both mean "dragon".
- Cyberweasel89 is thinking of having the Ryu Ryu no Mi and Tatsu Tatsu no Mi classified under the same series of "Dragon Models", a model series detailing different types of dragons. Dragons in the model series could include Western Dragons, Eastern Dragons, Wyverns, Wyrms, Ice Dragons, Swamp Dragons, Dream Dragons, Hydras, etc.
