The Paw-Paw Fruit (ニキュニキュ実, Nikyu Nikyu Mi) is a
Paramythia type Cursed Fruit that bestows its user the ability to repel everything they touch, and is physically represented as paws on the user's palm that seem to be permanently engraved into the user, making them a Paw Human (肉球人間, Nikukyū Ningen), as the user probably must wear gloves when his powers are not in use. The fruit's name, Nikyu, comes from the word "Nikukyuu" (肉球) which means "Paw" in Japanese. It was eaten by the Warlord Bartholomew Kuma.
Strengths and WeaknessesEdit
The first and foremost strength of the fruit, as demonstrated by Kuma, is that the user is able to push virtually anything they touch and send it flying at an extremely high speed. This includes both tangible materials such as people and objects, and intangible materials such as air and the sensation of physical pain. This power offers the user an incredible advantage in battle, allowing them to deflect any attack. They are also able to harness their abilities to perform offensive maneuvers, such as repelling the very air around them at very high speed. These attacks are so powerful that they can leave paw-shaped imprints in rock
One misconception about the powers of the Paw-Paw Fruit is that it gives its user the ability to transport at will. However, this assumption is incorrect. Rather than teleport, Kuma uses the incredible speed of his Cursed Fruit power to propel himself across certain distances, though he hasn't actually been seen pushing himself to another location.
While the user is able to deflect attacks, they can only do so by using their bare hands. If the user's hands are otherwise occupied, being caught off guard for instance, they will receive damage from an attack that could have been otherwise averted. In Kuma's case, however, this weakness is compensated by his transformation into a high-functioning, thick-armored cyborg.
Aside from this unique case, the user suffers the standard Cursed Fruit weaknesses.
