After returning back to Enies Lobby, Spandam tells Kaku that he has a devil fruit for him. After he lets go of the remaining members of CP9 from the room, he gives him the Ushi Ushi no Mi, Model: Giraffe. Even though Jabra tells him not to eat it, he eats it anyway as Rob Lucci encourages him and thus, Kaku acquired the Ushi Ushi no Mi, Model: Giraffe.
The Ushi Ushi no Mi, Model: Giraffe is a red fruit shaped like a bunch of bananas with various swirls on it and a light green stem holding individual sections together. The inside of the fruit is yellow and it also has swirls.
The major strength of the fruit is that it gives the user more physical strength and longer reach in their hybrid form. People used to make fun of this devil fruit as a Giraffe is a harmless animal. This mockery was soon proved wrong to the people, when the fruit grants the user the abilities to transform into a Giraffe which increases the person’s size, strength and has a lot of durability.
They can run very fast and have powerful legs and hooves. They also have ossicones like horns and a long powerful neck with which they whip their enemies.
A weakness of this fruit is the long neck of the user which leaves them to be attacked from any side. Other than that they have the standard devil fruit weakness that is the inability to swim.
Kaku uses his devil fruit powers for combat and when he combines it with his Rokushiki skills and techniques, skills and Swordsmanship, he becomes stronger. At first, Kaku didn't know how to control his devil fruit powers but later on he started to get a hang of his powers.
He also used his devil fruit powers to help raise up medical bills for his CP9 member, Rob Lucci. He used his beast form to make a slide for kids to ride and collected money from them for that.
