The Zou Zou no Mi is a Zoan-type Devil Fruit that grants its user the ability to transform into an elephant hybrid or a full elephant at will. It was “consumed” by Spandam’s sword, Funkfreed, via a process developed by Vegapunk. The fruit’s abilities were demonstrated during the Enies Lobby Arc.

At some point in the past, Spandam’s sword “consumed” the Zou Zou no Mi (Elephant-Elephant) Devil Fruit. The fruit bestowed life to a non-living creature, turning it into an Elephant.
The fruit’s appearance is unknown.
The fruit’s most basic strength is that it grants its owner elephant-like qualities, such as increased size and sheer strength. The fruit’s most significant strength in the case of Spandam’s sword is that it has given life to an otherwise inanimate thing. Spandam now has a one-of-a-kind weapon, which he can use to fight.
So far, the fruit doesn’t have any specific weaknesses apart from the standard Devil Fruit flaws.
However, considering the circumstances surrounding it, the animal created from this fruit has a little weakness with it. While the fruit gave Spandam’s sword the power and intelligence of an elephant, it also gave the sword some common sense when it came to fearing bodily pain and death. While the sword was not alive to begin with, it gets terrified of being slain in the same way that a real elephant would. In other words, the power of the fruit placed in the sword a fear of being killed.
Spandam’s sword Funkfreed has demonstrated the following techniques under his master’s command:
It is a non-lethal attack Funkfreed employs to disable its opponent by extending its body rapidly to deliver a strong headbutt. Another possibility for this technique is that if the trunk were a sword, it will trap and slice the target.
Funkfreed transforms into his elephant-sword hybrid form and rushes forward to spear an opponent with his sword-trunk as Spandam swings the sword over his head.
