Myth: In her eating frenzy, a 6-year-old Big Mom accidentally ate Carmel and the other residents of the Sheep’s House, and gained Carmel’s Soru Soru no Mi this way.
In the flashbacks of Big Mom’s past, Mother Caramel and all of Linlin’s friends “disappear” after her food rampage. In the background we see Streusen, and he is obviously terrified by what happened. Big Mom herself has no memories about the event.
Fact: The reason for Carmel’s disappearance has been left unspecified. We only know for sure that she died, given that her Devil Fruit was passed to Big Mom.
Is it a coincidence that Big Mom has the exact same devil fruit ability as Mother Caramel? Or could it be the case that Mother Carmel was eaten by Big Mom?
If we assume to be true, can we also assume that eating Devil Fruit Users will give a person the ability of the fruit?
If so, is it required to eat the entire devil fruit user, or would the person need “only a bite”, like how only a bite is enough to attain the abilities from the fruits?
If we assume to be true, can this help in answering how Blackbeard stole Whitebeards Gura Gura no Mi devil fruit abilities?
In an SBS, a fan asked Oda if he could acquire Luffy’s Gomu Gomu no Mi by eating him, and Oda replied that he would get food poisoning (not necessarily denying the possibility of a fruit transfer).
