|Hogo Hogo no Mi|
|English Name:||Charm-Charm Fruit|
|Power:||Protects the user from attacks and nullifies Devil Fruit powers|
The Hogo Hogo no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that allows the user to negate and deflect attacks. The fruit's ability allows the user to absorb then bounce back physical attacks back at the attacker and nullify any Devil Fruit attacks used on the user, making the person a Shield Human (シールド 人間 Shīrudo Ningen). "Hogo" is the Japanese word for protection which has been translated into "Charm" in English because amulet charms (お守り omamori) are said to provide protection against evil and bring good luck to its holder.
Strengths and Weaknesses
The main strength of this Devil Fruit power is that it can provide the user defense without having to apply any effort in doing so. Any physical matter that is hurled at the user (whether it is a mere punch, a thrown boulder/knife, or even a Marine soldier's bullets), the attack will be deflected back to the attacker once it makes contact with the user's body. This Devil Fruit power is automatic, making the user almost invincible to harm, as she will subconsciously absorb the kinetic energy from an attack then divert it back.
Furthermore, a side effect of this Devil Fruit is that the user's hands has a sea prism stone-like effect which drains Devil Fruit users of their energy when they come into direct contact with them.
The user requires physical contact in order to use her Devil Fruit powers, therefore, she is defenseless against indirect attacks and explosives. Unlike the physical negation, the user's Devil Fruit negation only applies to her hands, so any other part of her body may be vulnerable to Logia-type Devil Fruit attacks. Aside from that she is still helpless to the standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
