Doru Doru no Mi in One Piece


The Doru Doru no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that transforms its user into a Candle Human, allowing them to create a huge amount of candle wax from their body and manipulate it. It was consumed by Galdino, better known as Mr. 3.


The fruit’s abilities were first demonstrated during the Little Garden Arc, and later were shown in combination with Luffy’s techniques during the Impel Down Arc.

History and Appearance of the Doru Doru no Mi


History


At some point in the past, Mr. 3 consumed the Doru Doru no Mi (Wax-Wax) Devil Fruit. It is unknown whether he ate it before he joined the Baroque Works or after.


Appearance



The Doru Doru no Mi is a white pear-shaped fruit with a top that resembles a candle that has melted. It has the traditional Devil Fruit swirl designs all over and a green stem at the top with one droplet-shaped extrusion on each end that makes it look like wax in pouring.


Strengths and Weaknesses of the Doru Doru no Mi


Strengths



The main ability of this fruit is that it allows the user to generate candle wax from their body and shape it anyway they like. The wax becomes as robust as steel once it has hardened. Also, the wax is resistant to some acids. When the power of this fruit is awakened, the user’s hair ignites, giving the appearance of a candle. However, the user is not harmed by the flames.


Weaknesses


When one piece of solid wax strikes another piece of hardened wax, both pieces of wax break and fall to the ground. Regardless of its density, wax will still melt if it is in contact with heat or flames such as the fire burning on Mr. 3’s head. Also, because of the fruit’s abilities, the user is a “candle-man,” and being in a hot environment can significantly weaken them as a result.



Apart from these, the user is vulnerable to the standard Devil Fruit flaws.


Usage and Techniques of the Doru Doru no Mi


Mr. 3 has mainly used the fruit’s bestowed powers in ways that are consistent with his sense of artistic expression. These include enormous wax cakes with flickering candles and wax figurines that closely resemble real people in every way. Among these methods, Mr. 3’s use of the fruit’s abilities to encase his opponents in wax and transform them into living wax statues stands out.



Mr. 3 is also capable of making keys out of wax, which has come in very handy for escaping Seastone-built shackles and prison cells. It is unclear how Mr. 3 is able to completely replicate the key’s exact structure from memory, as well as the internal workings of the locks that it was intended to open. It could be him putting his fingers inside the keyhole while they are covered with wax, or that he produces a master key of some form. His specific method is not known, but he also uses his powers to power his ship, much like certain Logia-class users do.


Techniques


Mr. 3 has demonstrated the following techniques using his Devil Fruit powers:


Candle Lock



In this technique, Mr. 3 uses a big candle-shaped restraint to immobilize his opponents by producing wax and covering an opponent’s limbs in it.


Tokudai Candle Service Set



In this technique, Mr. 3 builds a huge wax birthday cake arrangement, placing a pillar on top of the lower “floors” of the cake, and then builds a rotating half-dome with blazing candles on top of it. The targets he has caught are then placed on the cake, and they gradually start to cover in wax mist while the candles burn, thus turning them into wax statues. The target suffocates if left unchecked for an extended period of time.


Candle Jacket

In this technique, Mr. 3 ties his opponents to the ground.


Doru Doru Arts “Ken” (Wax Wax Sculpture: Sword)

In this technique, Mr. 3 creates a large sword out of wax. In the anime, this technique was censored with Mr. 3 covering his opponent’s hand in wax and pinning their giant hands with wax stakes. This technique enables him to stop his opponent from escaping.


Doru Doru Arts “Mori” (Wax Wax Sculpture: Harpoon)

In this technique, Mr. 3 creates a wax harpoon and uses it to spear an opponent.


Candle Wall



In this technique, Mr. 3 builds a wax wall to protect himself from an attacking enemy. This is durable enough to withstand most blunt attacks. The wall can also withstand some poisonous acids up to a limit.


Candle Champion



In this technique, Mr. 3 creates a gigantic battle suit that resembles a giant robotic boxer by covering himself in wax. His physical strength and defenses are significantly increased by the outfit. The suit is strong enough for Mr. 3 to defeat strong opponents. Also, the suit is usually white in color, however, if Mr. 3 has a subordinate with painting abilities, they can change the color of the suit.


Champ Fight “Oraga Hatake” (Champ Fight: Plowing the Field)

In this technique, Mr. 3 charges towards an enemy while wearing his Candle Champion invention and using boxing gloves.


Doru Doru no Yakata (Wax Wax Mansion)



In this technique, Mr. 3 creates many wax replicas of himself in order to hide his true body and execute a deadly surprise dagger attack on the target. He cannot use his clones, though, if his body is harmed. The technique works best if Mr. 3 has a subordinate with painting abilities.


Doru Doru Ball (Wax Wax Ball)

In this technique, Mr. 3 wraps himself in order to defend himself from an enemy attack.


Candle House

This is a highly effective defensive technique in which Mr. 3 builds a large box with numerous tiny openings so he can see what is happening on the outside. The technique has proved to be extremely useful when it comes to defending himself.


Doru Doru Kaijo (Wax Wax Removal)

In this technique, the wax that Mr. 3 creates becomes liquid once more after it has hardened.


Combination Techniques with Luffy


While Mr. 3 has been the only one to intentionally use the Doru Doru no Mi’s powers, Luffy has also done so. Luffy uses the solidified substance in combination with his own Devil Fruit powers to deliver assaults boosted by Mr. 3’s wax, which he discovered when Mr. 3 wrapped his feet in wax. These tactics have only been used when wax has been accidentally placed on Luffy's limbs by Mr. 3. The techniques are temporary as the impact left by it splits the wax.



The abilities of this fruit were purposely used by Luffy when Mr. 3 collaborated with him during the breakout of Impel Down. One of the most noticeable is a pair of gloves and boots that resembles Mr. 3’s Candle Champion for use in battle against Magellan, the warden of Impel Down, and his Doku Doku no Mi abilities. In order to stop Luffy from becoming infected as well, Mr. 3’s Doru Doru Kaijo’s armor components melted after Magellan’s Kinjite poison had infected them.


Following are the methods that Luffy uses when the Doru Doru no Mi’s powers are used on him:


Gomu Gomu no Tonkachi (Rubber Rubber Hammer)

This is a technique in which Luffy uses wax on his limbs to act as big hammers.


Gomu Gomu no Tonkachi Rifle (Rubber Rubber Hammer Spinning Bullet)

Luffy developed this method when he joined forces with Mr. 3. After having Mr. 3 use Candle Lock on Luffy’s arm, he launches an attack that resembles his Gomu Gomu no Rifle technique.


Doru Doru Candle Armor (Wax Wax Candle Armour)

In this technique, Mr. 3 covers Luffy’s arms and legs in wax armor that has the appearance of a big set of boxing gloves and lengthy robotic legs. He used this to make his blows more powerful and protect himself from poisonous acid.


Gomu Gomu no Champion Rifle (Rubber Rubber Champion Spinning Bullet)

Luffy launches a strike imitating his rifle technique after having his arms covered in wax. He is able to use this attack without getting poisoned thanks to the wax covering his arm. This attack’s name is a mashup of Mr. 3’s Candle Champion move and Luffy’s rifle technique.


Gomu Gomu no Champion Stamp (Rubber Rubber Champion Stamp)

This is a technique in which Luffy uses his standard stamp attack but with the assistance of Mr. 3’s wax to avoid being poisoned. This attack’s name is a mashup of Mr. 3’s Candle Champion move and Luffy’s stomp attack. This technique is referred to as Gomu Gomu no Stamp in the manga.


Gomu Gomu no Champion Bazooka (Rubber Rubber Champion Bazooka)

This is an Anime-only technique. Following the application of wax on his arms, Luffy launches an attack imitating his bazooka move. Luffy can perform this technique without being poisoned because of the wax covering his arms. The name of this attack comes from combining Mr. 3’s Candle Champion attack and Luffy’s bazooka.


Gomu Gomu no Champion Gatling (Rubber Rubber Champion Gatling)

This technique is similar to Champion Bazooka in which Luffy is able to use a Gatling technique to attack his opponent while having his arms covered in wax. The attack’s name comes from combining Mr. 3’s Candle Champion technique and Luffy’s Gatling technique.


Tokudai Service: Candle Wall (Oversized Gift: Candle Wall)

In this technique, Mr. 3 creates a massive Candle Wall with spike protrusions on the side, facing the enemy. However, the wall cannot withstand strong poisonous acids.


Anime-Exclusive Techniques


Doru Doru Arts “Tejo” (Wax Wax Sculptures: Handcuffs)

In this technique, Mr. 3 creates wax handcuffs that can hold a target that is the size of a giant’s hands to the ground.


Candle Shield

In this technique, Mr. 3 uses his wax abilities to construct a primitive shield that is similar to Candle Wall.


Candle Coating

In this technique, Mr. 3 makes a wax barrier to protect himself and his pals from harmful things, much like Candle Wall does.


Video Game Exclusive Techniques


Doru Doru Arts “Ono” ( Wax Wax Sculpture: Ax)

This technique has been demonstrated in Pirate Warriors 3. In this technique, Mr. 3 creates a battle ax out of wax and attacks enemies with it.


Doru Doru Arts “Taiho” (Wax Wax Sculpture: Cannon)

This technique has been demonstrated in Pirate Warriors 3. In this technique, Mr. 3 builds a wax gun and shoots an enemy with it.


Other Techniques


Super Candle: Ultimate Champion

In this technique, Mr. 3 makes Candle Champion armor for Mikita, Gem, Marianne, and himself. Then, the four of them dock together to form a huge Candle Champion.
