    Mini Mini no Mi

    Post by Victor Prowler on Fri Nov 02, 2012 12:42 pm

    Devilfruit Name Mini Mini no Mi

    Type: Paramecia

    Description: The user of this fruit is capable of shrinking down to a smaller size, making it easier for him to interact with humans and smaller creatures, as well as gain flexibility in terms of avoiding attacks. It also seems that the users clothes along with their currently equipped weapons change size to match the effectiveness of the ability, thus they grow larger when the user turns into their normal forms. At its base they can go from their original size into the size of an Ant. The fruit itself has a fixed rate of change, allowing the user to change their form at faster rates with the higher amount of Devil Fruit Points they have. It is as followed typically.

    Devil Fruit Level 0-2: The user can change into any desired form in a total of a minutes time.
    Devil Fruit Level 2-4: The user can change into any desired form in a total of thirty seconds.
    Devil Fruit Level 5: Instant change of form, swapping from small to large in a single second.

    While this is a simple fruit, you'll have some detailing and rephrasing to do yet.
    For one thing, please reform it into a general description not particularly tailored unto this specific character - we're working under the assumption and possibility that someone else might be getting/taking the fruit in the future if e.G. you picked up a new character instead of this or simply aren't with us anymore.
    It also makes differentiating it's abilities and such easier.

    Second, there needs to be some more aforementioned detailing. Such as how long it takes to change size, how small is the limit etc. some of that might also be coupled to attributes such as concentration or your fruit-expertise, to open it up for improvement.

    I know there are only two fruits so far that give any examples at all, but i believe they should hold a couple of pointers for you if you are unsure. (Fruits @ the Inventory)

    Two main things, yes.

    For one thing, "posts" is a terrible measure of time. A post can span half a second or multiple days. This is more then spongy to make it the scale for ability durations o.s. Just put actual times in minutes, seconds, moments, something like that. In the end, how long it takes depends mostly on how it's played out, so we can afford to be a little bit liberal with that.

    Also, "The fruits ability to compress size is not limited to simply aesthetic appeal, it has effects on both speed and strength the more condensed the user becomes." seems a bit unclear to me. I can guess what it's supposed to be, but guessing won't do. We'll need clear-cut explanations, so no room for sudden change of effects and capabilities is left. While i'm never expecting people to powerplay, it's always more desirable to rule it out in the first place - if nothing else, then at least to be fair towards all old, current and future applicants.

    Its stated in a manner specific to say what can and can't be allowed through the use of techniques. I can and shall add more detail on what that is. Also, I also found posts to be a horrible measure of time, however in terms of actual minutes and hours that could end up being quite disabiling. If you would be so kind could you suggest a minimum and maximum amount of time it would take? The reason for this is due to my inability to clearly see how it would be allowed without being instant. In terms of how its used in the game its instant. So I don't know. xD

    For times, a noteable couple of seconds for starters will be fine, and from there on out up to ultimate mastery it would be pretty much instant.
    I can't recall saying instant is not viable at some point. It's mostly a point to be clear on in case of actual competitive situations where things are actually happening very fast and it could actually make a difference.

    As for "I can and shall add more detail on what that is." Depending on criteria such as "does it directly link to the core ability of the fruit or is is just a use of said effect" it may or may not be very much necessary to add more information in the description. or none at all, as techniques have no place in describing the fruit base ability.
    Long-ish rant:
    For example, luffys rubber fruit. The description would contain information such as that the user is able to stretch or be streched, maybe how far or with how much force and speed the body retracts into it's original form. Maybe also that this condition immunizes the user towards certain things such as cannon balls or such. This would be the fruit base ability.
    Everything else, pistol, rifle, axe, gears, you name it is nothing else but the use of these abilities in a certain way to get a certain effect or certain attributes as result. They have no place at all in the fruit base ability description. Another example would be Kizaru with his light fruit. He can turn to light and such, that's his fruit base ability, but being able to shoot lasers with it, or moving at light speed etcpp is techniques that are results of the fruit core ability being used in a certain way, so they are not mentioned in the description of the general ability.
    Whether or not this should be mentioned is thus a matter of what you want it to be. If it's a fancy use of the ability, no. That's technique. If it's something the fruit bestows upon the user, yes. Though, remember every fruit grants exactly one ability, so it should be hand-in-hand with the fruit ability so far.

    As per your rants info, this info is now correct. I just need you to see if the times fit your liking. Also, as for the omissions of the techniques stated such as gears and all that, then this is all the fruit needs to state. The Compression ability was more like a technique. My bad.

    This looks good now. Times are acceptable as is. Though remember it's not a hard stairs system regarding abilities, expertises and attributes, but a seamless sliding scale. So if anything, the times will be guidelines, the exact capabilities and such will be subject to situation in game, style of play and your personal discretion with ability use (just like most other things regarding fair interpretation of attributes etc).

    As such, i'll put my first approval onto this. Approved.
    Though you need a second opinion - i'm sure it's not much of a problem.

    Alright, I see nothing wrong with this fruit, creative use for a large bloke, but regardless, I hereby bestow upon thee APPROVAL. You may pat yourself on the back for getting a dolphin's approval. Dolphins NEVER give their approvals.
