The Buta Buta no Mi, Model: Erimantian is a Mythical Zoan-Type Devil Fruit that allows its user to transform into an Erymanthian boar (a giant boar from Greek mythology) at will. It was eaten by Corinthus G. Yama, captain of the Wild Boar Pirates.
The Buta Buta no Mi, Model: Erimantian is a purple, carrot-shaped fruit with a stem sprouting out of the top. The typical devil fruit swirls cover the fruit as well.
Strengths and Weaknesses
The fruit's major strength is that it allows a person to become a giant boar capable of destroying massive structures with ease. A full transformation also gives the user immense durability against physical attacks similar to the durability of the Zou Zou no Mi, Model: Mammoth.
The user is extremely heavy and generally slow in this form, leaving them unable to dodge high-speed attacks. Additionally, when the user does attain high speeds through a charge, it is difficult for them to change direction or stop.
Additionally, the user has the standard weaknesses of a standard boar. The eyes, inside of the nose and mouth, and belly are all softer areas that can be wounded more easily. Even so, it still requires a tremendous amount of strength to damage one of these areas.
The user also suffers from standard Devil Fruit weaknesses.
The powers of the fruit have been used by Corinthus G. Yama
Awakening grants far greater strength, speed, and durability than unawakened powers. This also includes faster recovery time, which functions involuntarily, even when the user is unconscious. Additionally, the user's instincts are refined beyond normal animalistic capabilities.
Originally, the fruit was discovered in a pirate raid led by Corinthus G. Yama. After eating the devil fruit, he broke off from his former pirate group with a band of followers and founded the Wild Boar Pirates. He then used the fruit's power to accumulate strength and expand his influence on the seas, eventually becoming one of the biggest pirates in the New World.
There are no records to indicate if there was ever a previous user of this devil fruit or its origin.
