I am for the spider zoan fruit just as much as I am for the locking of this thread
We have an SBK thread for a reason folks…
I don't think there are any insect or bug fruit, zoan's are only animal devil fruits!
Zoan's allows the user to transform into a animal. This fruit provides three forms: the user's natural form, a full animal form, and a hybrid form, combining both original and animal form!
Two of three CP9 zoans were completely wasted. If you exchange Rucchi´s and Jabra´s abilities they would have used the absolutely same moves. There was nothing unique in their fighting style that is based on their DF.
Rucchi´s "Hyobi" (leopard tail) move was actually a Rankyaku variation, which means it was a kick with his leg, which means he could have performed the same thing if he was a wolf zoan. Jabra´s Lupus Four was also a Rankyaku variation, only that it was shaped like a wolf. Seeing that Rucchi could do a bird shaped Rankyaku, those variations are not dependand on the zoan type. Practically all they did were unique Rokushiki moves. They were cool and all but they could have performed them in human form too.
It´s actually ironic that of wolf, leopard and giraffe the latter was the best in terms of fleshing out the zoan ability. Bigan, Kilimanjaro and Anamedachi and even that silly Shikaku thing were all moves that could only be performed because of Kaku´s DF. Cool or uncool doesn´t matter here, he at least didn´t waste potential. What is even more ironic is that he had the least experience with his ability of the three.
So when it comes down to it, I personally find the CP9 Zoans disappointing. Those that looked cool didn´t serve any other purpose then adding the DBZ "if you power up, I´ll power up too" concept to OP. However that only counts for Rucchi. Jabra directly went beastman mode without ever busting a sweat as a human which is very disappointing for my taste.
Well, I didn't read the whole thing, but well, they needed those devil fruits to do the moves they needed to do, Lucchi needed his devil fruit to over power Luffy though-out their fight, same goes for the others, if they didn't need them, then why transform into them, the zoans helps increase their power, speed and strength, so they were not a waste at all!
OH, and I think Do Flamingo has like the puppet puppet fruit!
