In today’s post you will know the real meaning of what D stands for in One Piece.
It has been bugging me all these years every time I hear the D. I have tried and tried on researching what it means until I re-watched the Dressrosa Arc and the final phase of the battle between Luffy and Doflamingo.
Either Oda hid it well in the scenes or I was too focused on the battle that I missed it for so long. As we all know Doflamingo is a former World Noble of the Donquixote Family. He used to reside in Mariejois but when his late father Donquixote Homing decided he wanted his family to live a normal life out of Mariejois, Homing wanting a modest lifestyle, were forbidden to ever step foot on Mariejois.
18 remaining Royal families residing on the Holy Land where considered gods, they founded the World Government and is believed by Doflamingo that they hold a national treasure somewhere in Mariejois. Doflamingo was seen once saying that with the Ope Ope no Mi df, the one eaten by Trafalgar D. Water Law if combined with this treasure, one could conquer the world. The World Nobles hates those pirates with the D as they are considered as demons or devils.
Also Jaguar D. Soul once said that all his family carries the initial D. implying that the D. is inherited down in generations just like Monkey D. Garp, Monkey D. Dragon and Monkey D. Luffy. Making them inherit the devil just like the World Noble believe they are gods and superior to the rest of the world.
After Monkey D. Luffy and Doflamingo dealt their last attack with his King Kong Gun for Luffy and Doflamingo’s Sixteen Holy Bullet God Thread in mid-air, Doflamingo fell down breaking the remaining of Dressrosa and the words of Donquixote Rosinante came to Doflamingo’s mind saying, “In some places, there are people who call the Family of D…” “Sworn enemy of the gods”!
What does this mean? Who are the sworn enemy of the gods? It is a simple guess D stands for D(evil) or demons. The D can’t stand for Donkeys or whatever D word comes to mind. It has always been God vs Devil, Angels vs Demons. In summation, it is fairly understandable that the D stands for D(evil) as they are the only sworn enemies of the gods.

11 One Piece Characters Who Has Awakened Devil Fruits
On my last post, I explained the Awakening and how it might affect different devil fruit types and talked about One Piece characters who officially had an awakening. Today I will be discussing 11 Devil Fruit Users who had an awakening. We all know how Oda like to foreshadow and leave small hints to upcoming events.
So here are the top characters who probably achieved Awakening for their Devil Fruits:
Awakened Zoan types can withstand huge amount of damage dealt to them. Even after they seem to have been dealt with and dead, Zoans can almost revive from huge attacks just like the Awakened Jailer Beasts. 2 Character that might have succeeded in achieving Awakening are:
Having a dumb looking face, he is quite ferocious in his attacks. He ate an unknown devil fruit that makes him turn into a cow.
Like all Mino he is one of the 5 Jailer Beasts. He also ate an unknown devil like the rest that makes hin turn into a rhino.
Like the rest of the Jailer Beasts, this guy can recover quite fast while having a snot nose and the same uncontrollable blood lust to torture inmates.
With his luscious hair and shy personality, he is one fearsome and brutal opponent. He ate an unknown devil fruit that turns him into a zebra, the Jailer Beasts fear Sadi for their failure to capture Luffy and the others.
As this guy appeared just after the timeskip, we do not know for certain that he is awakened but as the rest of the Jailer Beasts share the same characteristic he may also be awakened. He uses his rope to hang and torture prisoners.
There was a ticking time bomb that will obliterate Alabasta but in the last seconds Pell grabbed it and took off in the air. After the bomb detonated, we thought he is done for but at the end he survived and seen his own grave.
Yeah, I know this might seem crazy. His original devil fruit allows him to have 3 transformations but with the help of the rumble ball he could access 7 forms pre-time skip. After the time skip he only uses the rumble ball for Monster point. The rumble ball is a mean to achieve awakening faster. My guess, he will achieve full awakening when he doesn’t need the rumble ball and a time limit for his Monster Point.
In the category of Paramecia, we know of Donquixote Doflamingo achieving Awakening. The Awakening of Paramecia is achieved when the can affect their surrounding area by the type of devil fruit they have, DD turned buildings into string to fight Luffy’s Gear 4.7
Magellan’s awakening power is different from DD. Instead of turning buildings in venom he can produce access venom and finally turning it into a venom demon that he can control by the movements he makes and possibly by mentally controlling it. When Luffy was fighting Magellan with the help of Mr. 3’s wax wax fruit he could fight without being poisoned from the venom but as Magellan was preparing the Venom Demon the wax from Champion Stamp got affected by the venom so my guess is that this final form of Venom Demon is his awakened state.
