Yamato One Piece: One Piece is looming the end of the Wano Country arc. The arc introduced several new characters. Some of these characters have powerful devil fruits, and one such character is Yamato, who is the son of Kaido. From the first day itself, Yamato has been favorite to his fan base and his fan base is rising. In recent polls where people ranked their favorite One Piece characters, Yamato became 11th in the rankings.
With a powerful Haki and his devil fruit, Yamato has shown to be a force to be reckoned with. One of the things people don’t know about Yamato’s devil fruit is that he ate the Dog Model Meat Mouth. The Inu Inu no Mi turns him into an Okuchi-Neko, which encompasses a lot of significance.
About the Appearance of Devil Fruit
Yamato’s Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Okuchi no Makami has a unique appearance. The devil fruit looks orange and has patterns that go half way down the surface of the fruit.
The appearance of the Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Okuchi no Makami is similar to that of a persimmon, a fruit grown in China.
What is the mystery Zoan type devil fruit?
This devil fruit is a mythical Zoan-type, unlike a regular type. There are only seven of these types in the series so far. These provide more strength and stamina than other types.
Mythical Zoans grant their users unique abilities. In Yamato’s case, the Inu Inu no Mi Model: Okuchi no Makami grants him the ability to create ice. Also, in his full beast form, Yamato can turn into a wolf who can run very fast.

Learn about the Special Ice ability
A Yamato’s special power is to generate ice. He can use this ability in various ways, with the most common one of freezing targets temporarily to immobilize them. The ice can also cover his weapon so that it inflicts more damage when attacking opponents. Yamato used his power to cover his weapon’s head with ice and attacked Kaido, which he was able to knock him to the ground with a single blow.
One way Yamato can benefit from this unique ability is by having an ice suit around his body. This helps him take the impact of attacks and not be hurt. The ice suit is so good that it looks like he doesn’t have it on at all, thus it’s both an offensive and defensive tool. However, his ability has its limits when fighting Kazenbo since the ice couldn’t freeze objects in a devil fruit’s chamber.
What Wano is like and the significant events happening
The devil fruit is very important in the story. Kaido says that, because of its guardianship, Yamato (the wolf) is influential to the story. Kaido’s son turned against him and formed an alliance with those who want to take him down.
After Luffy had a tough fight against Kaido, he fell from the rooftop. Yamato wrestled against his father. He managed to hold his own while fighting the “strongest creature in the world.”
Yamato Ate It Accidentally
The only reason Kaido did not want Yamato to eat the devil fruit for was because he had a hard time acquiring it. He never wanted Yamato to consume the fruit even though it has incredible power. With this power, Yamato lost his ability to swim which prevented him from leaving his island.
Both Oden and Yamato know what it’s like to dream of exploring the world; and while nothing is certain, many theorists speculate that Yamato might end up joining the Straw Hat Pirates, who currently have 11 members.
Did you know about Honshu Wolves?
The Makami, now extinct in Japan, is a wolf in the form of Yamato’s beast form. It was worshipped by many as a guardian deity and because they believed it could understand human language. It was widely accepted that the Makami safeguarded humans from misfortune and fire, amongst other things.
Currently, Yamato is actively protecting the Flower Capital from being destroyed. In the Wano Country arc, he was trying to stop it from being destroyed and in the Flower Capital, he’s trying to prevent fire from spreading to weapons storage, which could lead to a high casualty number.
It’s the second wolf model introduced in the Revenge of the Wolves series
There are two types of devil fruits based on wolf varieties, which were introduced in the Enies Lobby arc.
Jabra is able to change into a wolf and a wolf hybrid at will, but his devil fruit does not have any other special abilities. His Rokushiki combined with his devil fruit powers make him a tough opponent. Yamato’s devil fruit, on the other hand, increases his physical attributes as well as granting additional powers.
How the icons in this article compare to East Asian deities
Yamato’s hybrid form resembles something that is divine. His flames are most likely there as a reference to gods in Eastern religions.
Yamato’s role is to protect Makami, the god of fire, who is similar in appearance with a Fudō Myō-ō or Buddhist deity.
