Nika is a legendary warrior, worshipped as the Sun God by the slaves of yore and certain tribes. This legend, told to us by Who’s-Who during his fight against Jinbei, was whispered to him while he was being held by a guard.

The man knew what he was talking about. And to make matters worse, Vegapunk, the brains behind so many wonders, confirms that Nika is a mystery hidden in the oldest books, erased from more recent archives. In other words, a ghost in the machine.

But wait, the story thickens. The Nika legend isn’t just an old tale to lull sailors to sleep. No, it’s been passed down through the ages among the Buccaneers, a race on the brink of extinction. Bartholomew Kuma, yes, the same one who was turned into a toy for the government, inherited this story from his father, a ray of hope in the darkness of slavery.

He then passed it on to Jewelry Bonney, his adopted daughter. A beacon of hope that refuses to be extinguished.
The twist? There’s a Mythical Zoan Devil Fruit, the Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika. This fruit confers Nika’s traits and powers on those who eat it.

And guess what? The World Government, in its usual paranoia, is going to great lengths to keep this fruit under the radar, even renaming it « Gomu Gomu no Mi » to cover its tracks. Even the Emperors and their crews don’t get wind of it. That’s the extent of the secret.

And the highlight of the show: Monkey D. Luffy holds the power of this fruit. Yes, our Luffy, christened Nika by the Five Elders themselves.

If that’s not epic, I don’t know what is. A legendary warrior, a demon fruit under heavy guard, and our hero at the center of this tornado.

One Piece never ceases to surprise, and I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes us.

What does Nika look like?


Let’s unravel the mystery of Nika, a character who intrigues as much as she inspires.

From what we’ve been able to catch a glimpse of, Nika sports a slender figure, almost like a warrior from ancient times, with limbs that look like they’re made of spaghetti and a flaming head of hair.

The spicy detail? He was wearing something on his thighs, but the rest is a mystery.

And Vegapunk, our Einstein of the seas, adds fuel to the fire by saying that Luffy’s awakened form is pure Nika as described in the old writings.

What is Nika’s personality?

But who was Nika really? From the echoes captured by Who’s-Who, we’re talking about a legendary hero, a good guy, a pal of the slaves who adored them.

Nika was hope incarnate, promising to free slaves from their chains and put smiles on every face, bringing joy like candy.

Imagine the picture: a liberator arriving to chase away the darkness, a real ray of sunshine in a world often too gray.

The important thing to remember is that Nika is not just a name or a silhouette in the fog of history.

he’s an idea, a symbol of freedom and joy, now embodied by Luffy.

Our straw-hatted captain doesn’t just follow in Nika’s footsteps; he walks with them, instilling hope and smiles, true to the legend.

How powerful is Nika?

Nika, this legendary warrior, wasn’t just a shadow in the night.

Imagine him, sword in one hand, spear in the other, ready to challenge the world. But that’s not all.

The real magic was this hallucinating power: a body with the composition of rubber.

Yes, you read that right. This signature trait is the key to his strength, enabling him to fight in a thousand and one ways, a veritable human Swiss army knife.

What weapon does Nika use?

Nika, with his sword and spear, already symbolized a warrior without equal.

But with Luffy, this legend takes on a whole new dimension. It’s not just a question of brute strength, but of the ability to adapt, overcome and innovate.

Luffy, in his battles, in his quest, embodies the spirit of Nika, pushing the limits of what is possible.

The legend of Nika is not frozen in the past; it lives and evolves with Luffy, promising even more twists and turns in the epic adventure that is One Piece.

A word about the devil fruit:

Imagine a fruit so coveted by the World Government that they erased all traces of it and rewrote its history, renaming it « Gomu Gomu no Mi » and classifying it as Paramecia.

A subterfuge worthy of the greatest thrillers, isn’t it? And yet, despite centuries of research, this fruit slipped through their fingers, mocking their efforts like an elusive ghost. Some even whisper that this fruit, endowed with a will of its own, seems to shun the World Government. Ironic, isn’t it?

The saga takes an even juicier turn when we discover how this fruit, after having escaped the clutches of the government for 800 years, ends up in the hands of the Pirates of Shanks the Red, only to be ingested by a 7-year-old Luffy, who mistakes it for a dessert.

Who would have thought that this sweet bite would write a new chapter in Nika’s legend?

But the twist of fate doesn’t stop there. After his defeat by Kaido, Luffy awakens the fruit’s powers, a feat unseen for centuries.

This awakening is more than just an increase in power. It’s an echo through time, connecting Luffy not only to the legend of Nika, but also to those who have carried on her legacy.

When does Nika first appear?


Nika first appears in chapter 1018 and episode 1040.

His legend:

Since the dawn of time, Nika has been revered by the slaves, who hold out the ardent hope that he will one day free them from their ordeal. But the true existence of this heroic figure remains shrouded in mystery.

However, Dr. Vegapunk has uncovered ancient writings that mention him, confirming that the legend of Nika is no mere mirage.

This legend, like an unquenchable flame, has been handed down from father to son within the Buccaneer race, spanning the generations. It depicts Nika as immaculate, with an elastic body that can stretch at will, fighting with absolute freedom and dancing to the rhythm of the Liberation Drums.
