    I was thinking that there should be some kind of attempt to properly categorise Logia and Paramecia Devil Fruit abilities. I’m not going to do Zoan because Oda’s pretty much done it with the whole carnivorous, ancient, mythical etc. I didn't add pictures because they aren’t really necessary, and I’ve also added in non-canon DF users to show that they will also fit under the categories I make for them. The ultimate aim is to be able to place any Devil Fruit both present and future under at least one category that I make here.
    I’ll start with Paramecia because they are the most common and most diverse.

    PARAMECIA

    Paramecia Class A: The Physical Change

    This class of Paramecia is perhaps the only class out of the three major classes (Zoan, Logia, Paramecia) to be used on a solely unconscious level. These fruits will alter the actual body of its eater, giving it additional properties and/or changing certain capacities to mimic an item or substance that already exists, natural or artificial.
    Examples include (but are not limited to):

    · Monkey D. Luffy – permanently made of rubber

    · Daz Bones (Mr.1)* – Permanently made of steel

    *I believe that when we see him change colour to look like steel, this is just a visual aid that Oda has provided to make it easier to tell that he is made of steel, not an indication that he must turn manually turn into the substance to gain its effects.

    Paramecia Class B: Self-Manipulators

    These Devil Fruit eaters are able to extend or alter their bodies, or properties of their bodies in a particular way. This does not mean that certain extensions must originate from their user, although this is typically the case. These users often manipulate these extensions for alternate ends, but they cannot produce any substance from their bodies that is not a natural body part.
    People under this class can also change a certain feature or property of their bodies (such as growing larger, becoming invisible, increasing weight etc.), but are limited to altering their own bodies and nothing else.
    Examples include (but are not limited to):

    · Nico Robin –Create additional limbs

    · Miss Doublefinger – Extend herself to sharp points

    · Buffalo – Make parts of his body rotate freely like a propeller
    • Absalom - Can make himself invisible
    • Buggy - Can split his body into pieces without adverse effects
    • Eustass Kid - Can make certain parts of his body have an extremely strong magnetic field

    Paramecia Class C: World-Manipulators

    These abilities consist of some of the most random things that Oda can think of. This class covers the eaters who can alter their environment or aspects of their environment in any way. This is different from Class B because the effects of these fruits do (or are likely to) not depend on the survival of the user. Example would be that havoc is still wreaked from Whitebeard’s quake punch, and him dying would not repair what he's done. Miss Doublefinger on the other hand needs to be alive to extend those thorns. Examples include (but are not limited to):

    · Whitebeard/Edward Newgate – Can create tremors

    · Tsuru – Can hang things out like laundry

    · Inazuma – Can cut his environment to suit his needs

    Paramecia Class D: The Substance Makers

    This is possibly the most dangerous class of Paramecia (excluding the Gura Gura no Mi). These users are able to create any kind of substance or form that their ability will allow. Some of these will share properties of class C as well, but these are more specific in application. This class can also be broken down into two sub-classes: Semi-Logias and Alternate Abilities.
    Semi-Logias
    Semi-Logias are those which can create a particular substance with some variations just like a Logia, but lack the ability to transform into this substance and become intangible. They are often confused with actual Logia types and have potential to be as strong as Logia Types. Examples include (but are not limited to):

    · Magellan – Produces two types of poisons (Hydra and standard) in various ways. Likely the strongest in this class.

    · Mr.3 – Can produce wax from his body that can take on properties of steel

    · Doflamingo (debatable) – Can create razor and sturdy strings from his body

    · Trebol – Can create a flammable, sticky substance that has an high amount of grip. He is seen using it to counter gravity and walk on walls and a roof, and can use it to subdue foes in combat.

    Alternate Abilities
    The Alternate Abilities are quite peculiar. The substances that these users can create will serve more than one purpose, and are often useful in battle situations. More often than not, these substances will be intangible and not be combat-suitable in a physical sense. Examples include (but are not limited to):

    · Trafalgar Law – Can create a room in which he can freely manipulate anything inside. Living creatures are not harmed through any changes made by Law in this room.

    · Perona – Can create ghosts that offer a variety of uses, such as exploding and making enemies nigh-suicidal upon contact. Can also remove her spirit from her body

    · Foxy – Can create beams of light that heavily reduce the relative velocity of anything it hits.


    Some fruits might be a bit of two or even three of these classes put together, but my only defence is that Oda has a crazy imagination.

    LOGIA

    Now, onto Logias. It wasn't easy deciding which way to categorise these, but I chose the one I have because it seems to be the simplest and most reliable in catering for all the Fruits we have seen and could see in the future. There are only 12 Logia revealed so far, so it will not be as diverse as the Paramecia.

    Logia Class A: Gases

    These fruits are any that allow the eater to become and produce any substance that is in gas-form. These users are often middle to long range fighters, and in most cases can use their abilities to optimise travel speed. There are only 3 users in this class that I know of, and these are:

    · Caesar Clown – Can manipulate an extremely wide variety of gases (possibly any gas) he wills. The strongest in this class.

    · Portgas D. Ace/Sabo – Can create any amount of fire to burn enemies and use this in a variety of ways.

    · Smoker – Can transform into, manipulate and create large amounts of smoke.

    Logia Class B: Energy

    These Devil Fruits do not refer to any substance that has mass or specific form, but rather some kind of mass-less energy. Only three people have one of these fruits, and two of them specialise in extremely quick movement:

    · Kizaru (Borsalino) – Light man that can travel at the speed of light and concentrate photons to become highly destructive laser beams.

    · Enel – Said to have the fruit that grants the user invincibility, he can create, manipulate and move at the speed of lightning. (A thing I noticed that isolates Enel from other Logias is that when casting lightning, it does not seem to need to come out of Enel himself. Every other user must produce their substances from themselves or in extremely close range of their bodies. We have seen Enel make lightning fall on his victim from the sky rather than himself.)

    · Blackbeard/Marshall D. Teach – Can create an unknown black substance (stated to be ‘darkness’) that has its own gravitational pull, and can absorb anything that makes direct contact with it. He can then release, or ‘liberate’ whatever was absorbed in his darkness. He can also temporarily nullify other Devil Fruit abilities with physical contact with his skin. Only Logia to not become intangible. (I will not go into theories on how he obtained Whitebeard’s fruit)

    Logia Class C: Solids
    This is the most common category of fruit that we have seen. The abilities granted by this fruit enable the production of a specific solid or powder, and the user will be immune to any adverse effects that these may provide to ordinary people. As they are so common, I have also broken them down into sub-categories – Temperature based, and Ability Based.
    Temperature Based
    The temperature based solids are all about exposing your opponent to extremes in temperature:

    · Aokiji – Can flash-freeze anything around him, and can use this ability rapidly over an intense range, as seen when he freezes the ocean to let the stranded people cross to an island, the bay of Marineford, and the tsunami waves that WB’s uses to declare war. He can also manipulate the shape and intensity of his ice to create a variety of weapons, and when he freezes things, they always become encased with ice as though they were sculptures.

    · Akainu – Can create any amount of extremely hot magma and can manipulate the shape that it takes. He often uses his abilities at long range (Volcano Eruption) and close range, when he coats his fists in magma to increase the damage of his attacks

    · Monet – Can create snow with different properties and densities. Also has the ability to make it snow temporarily in a certain area, and once she commences making it snow, does not seem to exert any strength to continue its falling. She has been favouring close range tactics in which she uses dense snow to optimise her biting capabilities.

    Ability Based
    The ability based solids are those whose substance is more diverse. Only two people so far fit under this category, and one of them is non-canon anyway. The fruits and the powers they grant often seem quite useless on immediate consideration, but they will normally have many redeeming qualities. The people with ability bases are:

    · Crocodile – Can create and manipulate seemingly ordinary sand. He also has the peculiar ability to make twisters which are based on sand, and also the power to remove moisture from anything he touches with his hand. He can concentrate the sand to become weapons, and also uses his abilities to hover off the ground.

    · Simon – Curious abilities which allows him to create and manipulate paper. Him being a Gameboy Game exclusive character, I don’t know much about him, so I won’t really elaborate.

    Logia Class D: Liquids

    These users very simply are and produce any different liquid respective to their DF abilities. These liquids may vary greatly in properties and are appropriate in many different circumstances. Often we will see these users overwhelm an opponent in a large amount of their substance, or subdue them by encasing them or trapping key joints. These users are:


    · Caribou – Can form a mud-like substance which he can use to store items within himself. His mud can take on the properties of quick-sand, but will rather make those it captures be stored inside of Caribou than simply sink down. It is actually quite similar to the Darkness fruit because of this.

    · Honey Queen – Non-canon user who can create some unknown liquid and manipulate it freely. It does not have any particular qualities apart from it seems to have a similar texture to goo.

    · Gasparde – Non-canon user who can transform into a sticky candy syrup and create and manipulate it freely.


    So, there are my categories for Paramecia and Logia-type Devil Fruits. I suppose I’ve always classed the users in some way subconsciously, but I wanted something concrete to refer to and I figured I might as well share it with you guys. There's still a bit of room for elaboration, and I might sound a bit confusing or unclear at times, so just ask for clarification. This might be one of the longest posts ever, but it was fun to make and I hope you liked it. Feel free to discuss.

    Nice classifications. By the way, how about Plasma? I believe electricity is a plasma (not sure though).

    I'll have to see how it's used, and then it'll probably fall under 'gas' or 'energy'. I wouldn't name a whole category under it, because as far as I know there is only one kind of plasma - plasma. Given it's the fourth state of matter yada yada, I don't think it'll warrant a whole category named after it, even if it would be technically incorrect to place it otherwise. If it goes under energy, I would just alter its description to include plasma :P

    So where do you place Sugar on your scale? Two seemingly unrelated abilities from one fruit.

    She's a world-manipulator with the side effect of things returning to normal when she loses consciousness. That isn't necessarily a loophole so much as a disadvantage of the Fruit specifically, though it's an interesting case.

    Oh right, nearly forgot about that. As I said at the start, though, a Devil Fruit will need to fit under at least one category, not only one category to cater for Oda's crazy imagination.

    That seems to be lazy but works just fine though. But I don't really get the one kind of plasma thing.

    Trebol isn't a Logia user, he uses his powers to create a "coat" which makes him quite invulnerable, very much like Magellan.

    Good post. As always.

    I agree with most of what you have said. Not that I disagree with any either.
    Paramecia's are just too broad to classify in my eyes.

    My biggest debate is the Logia Solids category. The only way I justified Luffy as a Paramecia (even though I strongly feel he should be a Logia), is that Logia's can only be a LIQUID or a GASEOUS.

    For arguments sake (because I actually do like how you listed everything). You could class the following as something else;
    AKAINU > LIQUID: He is basically liquid earth.

    AOKIJI > GAS: His fruit is officiall HIE HIE NO MI. Which actually translates to 'CHILLING EXPOSURE' accoridng to Google. Which means it is the cooling, right? *shrugs to self*

    MONET is where it screws up for me too. SNOW is technically a SOLID form of Water aswell (ICE is a definitely).

    You're right and it IS kind of lazy, but it'll be so exclusive I just can't see it warranting an entire category for its own.

    The one kind of plasma thing is pretty simple, I'm just bad at explaining things. There are four states of matter that we know - solids, liquids, gases and plasma. We have plenty of different solids: Metals (minus mercury), wood, plastic, body parts and the list goes on are all different kinds of solids. Same story with liquids: We have water, juice, paint, blood and a host of liquids. And also gases: Oxygen, nitrogen, methane, carbon dioxide and another horde of gases.
    But with plasma, as far as I understand there's only one kind - plasma. It's just ionised gas. I don't believe there are any different kinds of plasma that we can discern like we can distinguish oxygen and methane. And researching it, the different kinds of plasma only seem to be based on their temperature, but those aren't so much different kinds of plasma so much as different conditions of plasma. If you don't get what I'm saying, don't worry, it's not really important anyway.

    Goddammit I keep forgetting to change that every time I do this post (It's saved on my laptop from about a year ago). Thanks for the reminder.

    Wait, so how do you feel about the energy types?
    I'm very curious to know why you have this impression of Logias. Aokiji is a perfect example of a typical, solid Logia (though I'll address him later), but even without Akainu, what do you say about Crocodile? There is no way to work around the fact that Sand is solid, and that is exactly what Crocodile is.
    I think I can see your point, though, and I feel like I should tell you that classing the Logias was a massive headache for me. One of the 'beta' forms of this list had it categorised such that 'Powder Logias' were originally one of the classes, and Monet and Crocodile fell under that, but that list didn't accommodate Aokiji, so I thought about it a but and opted for the Solids one, because technically powders are solids too.
    I got into a mad argument with some guy on another forum about this point, so you can take or leave this argument. Theoretically, yes, Akainu's Fruit indicates that he can create melting rocks, however he has shown that he can also make solid rocks coated in magma (Meteor Volcano), hence solids. So practically he can fit under either solid or liquid, but from the way I view him, he shares a lot more properties with a Solid Class of Logia than a Liquid Class.
    Who cares about what the Fruit's name says? I mean, if it was our only thing to go off, sure, but we've seen what Aokiji can do. He can create ice to coat the land around him and freeze people (Punk Hazard). He can create ice in certain forms to be used as weapons (Marineford). When he is struck he breaks as though he is a block of ice (Luffy's attack before Water 7). Every single thing about him screams Solid Logia. The name of the Fruit is not definitive evidence to defend a point, especially when we have much more concrete data available.
    And if it was a 'Cooling Fruit', it would be an energy form, as one such cooling power would remove heat energy from the environment, and not be a gas.

    Comes down to if Magellan has Haki. He's the kind of character who imo should have Haki, but since he debuted after the introduction of Haki and hasn't shown it, we can only assume that he does not have Haki. Thus, Caesar will be able to easily manoeuvre around Magellan's slower poison attacks and nullify most things that hit him, and win with his plethora of offensive attacks.

    Mr. 1 ate the Supa Supa no Mi (Blade Blade Fruit) so he is a Blademan. I think that Magellan primarily doesn't have 2 types of poison. That red poison of his is probably his awakened fruit ability, like with Katakuri and Doflamingo.

    I mean that's the name of his Fruit and it's true it does do more than turn him into steel, but it still has a permanent aspect to it. For that reason I'll leave him in that category.
    As for Magellan, whether it's awakening or not it's still 2 kinds of poison lol.
