Charlotte Katakuri ate the Mochi Mochi no Mi, a special Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that lets him create, control, and transform into mochi at will.
He frequently uses these abilities in hand-to-hand combat, sprouting several tendrils of mochi on his body to act as extra fists or legs; he can imbue these tendrils with Haki to deliver hard punches and kicks. By concentrating mochi into a single fist, Katakuri is capable of delivering punches of devastating power.
His powers have been shown to be analogous to a Logia in many respects, although mochi is a man-made substance. Katakuri has been shown transforming into mochi to block off bullets from Bege and has even survived being torn apart by Vinsmoke Ichiji’s attacks.
Katakuri has also awakened his Devil Fruit powers, enabling him to transform inorganic material into mochi, enhancing the range of his attacks and capture field.
Supplemented with his Devil Fruit powers, he uses a fighting style similar to Luffy’s Gomu Gomu no Mi techniques, and he can counter Luffy’s Red Hawk without any effort. With his own version of Luffy’s Elephant Gun, he overpowered and badly injured Luffy in a tremendous clash of strength.
Katakuri wields a trident named Mogura in battle. He was first seen wielding it during Vinsmoke Sanji and Charlotte Pudding’s wedding ceremony. When not in use, he seems to keep the trident inside his mochi body. Katakuri is extremely skilled in wielding his trident Mogura. He uses it in conjunction with his Devil Fruit powers and physical prowess to perform devastating thrusts.
Katakuri can utilize and has shown mastery over two types of Haki.
Katakuri has extraordinary mastery of Kenbunshoku Haki, having trained to such a degree that he can see slightly ahead into the future.
Katakuri is also extremely skilled at using Busoshoku Haki, as shown when he imbued his mochi leg with it in order to bludgeon and injure Luffy. He can also harden his arm, as shown when he countered Luffy’s attack. His Haki enhanced strikes are powerful enough to counter and overpower Luffy’s own Haki enhanced attacks.
