The Meta Meta no Mi is a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit that allows the user to copy the opponent's abilities other than physical appearances. Meta is a prefix (μετά), meaning "to encompass all." The fruit was eaten by Ditto, one of the Revolutionary Army's commanders.
The fruit is mainly used, in battle to easily catch up with the opponent's powers when overpowered (though it was stated by Hody Jones that if one can't learn how to use the granted strengths properly, the mimicry becomes useless). It can also be used to gain certain attributes or conditions for a period of time.
By touching the victim whom possesses the desired strengths, Ditto can gain their powers. Any fighting skills/styles (ie. Rokushiki, Black Leg Style, Fishman Karate, etc.), physical strengths/weaknesses, and drug effects (ie. Rumble Ball, Energy Steroids, KYP, etc.) are directly granted to Ditto, for up to 24 hours, in addition to his own skills. A victim's Devil Fruit ability can be, though limited, utilized normally, in addition to reusing the Meta Meta no Mi.
Despite the great potential of this fruit, it has a few major weaknesses. First of all, Ditto needs to, like the Mane Mane no Mi, actually touch the victim to acquire the desired powers. This can be dangerous as some of the more powerful figures are Logia users, like Smoker, Borsalino, Kuzan, Sakazuki, and Ceasar Clown. Even if not a Logia user, or a even a Devil Fruit user, it can still be a pain to touch the opponent, though any physical contact works. And unlike the Mane Mane no Mi, the fruit cannot remember the abilities of people, and require constant contact to switch between abilities.
Second of all, as aforementioned above, even weaknesses and side effects are copied over. Weaknesses like health issues (ie. Whitebeard) and mental disorders/syndromes (ie. ADHD, Walking Corpse Syndrome), and drugs' side effects (ie. Energy Steroids) are directly granted to Ditto. This was seen when Ditto mimiced Hody's Energy Steroid boosts, but was immobilized and unable to fight Blitz.
Finally, Ditto needs to learn how to make use of his copied powers. For example, even though he mimiced Hody's steroid enhanced Fishman Karate, his skills and proficiency with it was still behind Hody's. It was even pointed out by the racist fishman that Ditto wasn't invincible just because he could mimic others' powers.
- This fruit is similar to the Mane Mane no Mi, both can copy or imitate something from someone else.
- This fruit is also similar to the Kopi Kopi no Mi, though the fruit is filler, while this fruit is fanon.
