the Tremor-Tremor Fruit (トレムトレム実, Turamu Turamu Mi) is a
Paramythia-type Cursed Fruit that allows the user to create vibrations (or "quakes"), and turning them into a Quake Human (地震人間, Jishin Ningen). (トレム, Turamu) is short definiton for "tremor" (トレマー, Turemā). It was eaten by Ward Newgate, better known as Whitebeard. This fruit is fearsomely reputed to be able to destroy the world, and is considered to be the strongest Cursed Fruit within the Paramythia-class, having powers no weaker than that of a Logia.
Strengths and WeaknessesEdit
This fruit's major strength is that it allows the user to generate massive vibrations, or shock waves, which can travel though virtually any medium, including the ground, the seafloor, or even in the air. Because of this, Fleet Admiral Sengoku has stated that Whitebeard holds the power to destroy the world. However, though incredibly powerful, this almost seems to be an exaggerated description.
The fruit can easily devastate an entire island with ease, although its procautions and issues are noticeable: It needs repeated usages or stronger enough force to come close to destroying the Navy base at Navyford (although this happend when Whitebeard and Blackbeard clashed fists); the shock waves were blocked by the siege wall (albeit it was made from an especially strong metal superior to ordinary steel or sea-prism stone), and Admiral Aokiji was capable of stopping the tsunami.
Sengoku's claim may have referred to the aftereffects of the fruit, as they may indeed have "the power to destroy the world". It should also be noted that Vice Admiral Tsuru stated that, even if she retreated to the ends of the ocean, there would be no safe place left in the world. Both Sengoku and Tsuru are renowned as great tacticians, so it is very unlikely that they exaggerated their claims and they truly do believe the Tremor-Tremor Fruit holds the power to destroy the world.
This Cursed Fruit's powers are most noted to be a hazard to both friend and foe alike, as noted by the Whitebeard Pirates. This is largely because, although the user seems to be able to control both the magnitude of the shock wave and its point of impact, the quakes produced by said shock waves are indiscriminate in their effects. Because of this, allies of the user must be prepared for the impacts unless they want to become unintended victims of them.
This Cursed Fruit has no apparent weakness, aside from the standard Cursed Fruit weakness. However, the three Admirals were able to stop Whitebeard's shock waves from affecting Navyford's execution platform, possibly by combining their Busoshoku Haki. Also, the siege wall that Sengoku planted was composed of a material Whitebeard's shock waves could not shatter. And, as mentioned previously, due to the fact that Whitebeard's attacks were indiscriminate in who they could hit, his allies and crewmates had to fight a certain distance away from him, giving enemies far more room in attacking him.
