11 – BUGGY (Current)
Buggy the Star Clown is the captain of the Buggy Pirates and a former apprentice of the Roger Pirates. He accidentally consumed the Bara Bara no Mi, a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit which allows him to separate his body parts and control them independently of each other. The abilities gained from this fruit also make Buggy immune to slashing, cutting and cleaving attacks; any such attack just separates him into his component parts, allowing him to reform as needed. Because he is invulnerable to cutting attacks, he could be considered the natural enemy to even the most powerful swordsmen, as seen when he easily survived Mihawk’s extremely powerful slashing ability. In addition, most of his body is capable of flying through the air, with enough force to send a man flying through a wall – with the crucial exception of his feet having to stay grounded.
There are two major weaknesses of his Devil Fruit. The first is that his feet act as an anchor and must remain on the ground even when the rest of his body is airborne. Secondly, despite feeling them at all times, Buggy may lose pieces of his body if they leave his visual range, though once he can see them again he can easily guide them back.
