Big Mom has been a fearsome foe since the first mention of her name. While she is known for her massive appetite and short temper, not much was known about her before the Whole Cake Island arc. This guide will detail how Big Mom got her Devil Fruit in One Piece.
One Piece – How did Big Mom get her Devil Fruit?
Big Mom, also known as Charlotte Linlin, was one of the Four Emperors of the New World. Based on that, you can expect her to be incredibly powerful with her Devil Fruit Soru Soru no Mi (Soul Soul Fruit). But how did Big Mom come by this Devil Fruit, you may ask?
After Big Mom was abandoned on the island of Elbaf, she was taken in by Carmel and stayed at the Sheep’s House along with the other orphans. However, a year has passed since Big Mom arrived on the island, and Carmel and the other children held a sixth birthday party for her.
It was a tea party with croquembouche that all the children and Mother Carmel were invited to. Big Mom was overjoyed by the tasty treat she ate until she ate the tables and chairs. By the time she finished eating, all her friends and mother Carmel had disappeared. As you may have guessed, Big Mom ate everything in her path, including Mother Carmel. This is why Big Mom can now use the Soru Soru no Mi, although she only discovered this power later.
The Soru Soru no Mi is a Paramecia Class Devil Fruit that allows users to interact with and manipulate souls. To do this, the user will draw out the souls of those who feel fear. In doing so, will shorten the lifespan of the victim. The user can determine how much lifespan to draw.
