The Ishi Ishi no Mi is a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that grants its user the ability to merge with and manipulate stone, transforming the user into a Stone Assimilation Human. It was consumed by Pica. The fruit’s abilities were demonstrated during the Dressrosa Arc.
This Devil Fruit is often confused to be a Logia-type, but the user cannot change their body parts into stone or create it from their own body.

At some point in the past, Pica consumed the Ishi Ishi no Mi (Stone-Stone) Devil Fruit.
The fruit’s appearance hasn’t yet been revealed.
The main ability of this Devil Fruit is that it gives its user the power to fuse and assimilate with any type of stone. This enables the user to take control of anything made of stone which they come into contact with. The stone gains a remarkable level of flexibility and dexterity when under the user’s control, as witnessed by Pica’s ability to stretch and mold it in an unexpected number of ways. Because the Dressrosa palace is entirely built of stone, Pica may command it as if it were an extension of his own body. The strength of this particular fruit appears to be directly proportionate to the amount of stone in the user’s surroundings. As a result, in sufficient amounts, the person can tolerate having sections of their “body” destroyed indefinitely.
One limitation of the fruit is that the user must be fused with the stone in order to control it, as seen when the stone giant’s body stopped moving when Pica’s real body emerged from it. Because this is not a Logia, the user’s body does not convert into stone, but rather resides within it, making them as vulnerable as any normal person.
The damage done to the stone doesn’t inflict on the user themselves as long as their body is not affected. Also, if the user assimilates with stone and then loses contact with the earth (for example, by being thrown into midair), the main body is unable to assimilate any stone from the surrounding environment. In that case, the user has no choice but to emerge with his own body if the airborne stone containing the body is further chopped into small pieces.
Aside from its increased flexibility, the stone under the user’s control is no stronger or harder than regular stone. As a result, a powerful enough opponent or weapon can simply destroy it. The user is likewise exposed to the normal Devil Fruit flaws.
Pica can use this power to emerge with any stone creation, concealing himself and gaining total control of the region as if it were an extension of his own body. He had complete control of Doflamingo’s entire palace because it is entirely composed of stone, forcing the passageways to close together and the walls to shift.
Because he can assimilate with the castle’s stone, he can repeatedly let his bodily parts be destroyed without receiving any damage, and simply regenerate by assimilating with new stone in seconds. It also allows him to move fast through the stone, from one location to another in a short length of time. Pica can expand his arms’ reach with the absorbed stone, which allows him to wield his massive katana at long range.
Pica used his ability to take control of the entire island’s layout after Sugar fainted and the entirety of Dressrosa rebelled, as the Kingdom is on top of a rocky terrain, which allowed him to transform the landscape by moving the entire palace, shifting the elevation of the SMILE Factory, and increasing the height of the Flower Hill at the expense of other regions. He can even fuse with the stone of the entire island to gain a massive body that dwarfs ancient giants like Oars or even Sanjuan Wolf.
Pica has demonstrated the following techniques using his fruit’s powers:
Pica produces tentacles out of the stone after merging with a massive chunk of stone and sends them towards the victim in an attempt to crush them.
Pica, after absorbing a large stone area, causes a swarm of massive stone spikes to explode from it.
Pica creates two horizontal stone pillars with spiked ends that he rams together around an opponent, crushing and stabbing them.
Pica creates a stone duplicate of his head and uses it to bite an opponent.
