    We know that the Straw hats are a pirate crew with unique abilities so I don't believe Zoro himself will ever physically eat a devil fruit and it's probably not Zoro's style to depend on anything but his physical abilties and the power of his swords. Nevertheless, Zoro is interested in obtaining powerful swords or swords with devil fruit powers. Zoro has actually expressed interest in a fire sword here:

    [img=370x530]http://i8.mangareader.net/one-piece/604/one-piece-1519555.jpg[/img]
    "I always wanted a fire sword" he says to Luffy. This could then be foreshadowing a devil fruit powered swords that Zoro currently has or will obtain.


    People forget that Zoro's ambition is to be the worlds strongest swordsman and thus by extension his goal must be to obtain the worlds strongest swords. We have seen Zoro taking ownership of new swords throughout his journeys on the grand line. Unfortunately, Mihawk currently holds the worlds strongest sword: Kotuo Yoru. I don't believe Kotuo Yoru is designed for Zoro, first and foremost it's 7 feet in length which makes it impossible for Zoro to use his 3 sword style techniques. I know a swordsman must be able to adapt to the their new swords but a sword of that length cannot be used with 3 swords style as it will look ridiculous; besides, Zoro can only obtain Mihawk's sword only after he defeats Mihawk, which won't happen any time soon. While Mihawk has the strongest sword in the world, that doesn't mean Zoro cannot get a sword equally powerful or make one that is far more powerful.

    So that's a simplified theory: I have established Zoro's interest in a fire sword, I have established Zoro's interest in gathering the strongest swords, I have established the fact that Kotuo Yoru would be ridiculous to use with 3 sword style. Now, I'll wait and see what Zoro does.

    I think if Kiru kiru no mi *cut cut fruits* exist, it would be a perfect match for Zoro...
    I mean, with that devil fruit's ability he could cut everything...

    Or, maybe zoro will inherit kinnemon's Flame sword

    I believe Kinnemon doesn't have a flame sword, just his style of sword techniques allows him to cut through flames and produce them.

    And it seems other then zoan type fruits inanimate objects haven't been shown with devil fruit powers, with that being said I'm not sure if any of his swords would be able to take in the mera mera no mi.

    I think what makes him so interesting is his ability to be strong without the need of a devil fruit. Just like Sanji, pure determination, strength and will power make them seem much more strong, considering they have the balls to go up against someone with devil fruits.

    I would like to see him strive strong without the use of a devil fruit, however, his generally him and sanji are the ones to save Luffy from the ocean and water when he falls in. Straw hat needs them to be devilfruit-less for his sake xD

    What if one his swords 'eats' the mera mera no mi? We've seen weapons with DF abilities before.

    For the record, there is a reason we've only seen objects with Zoan abilities so far; the alternative would be utterly pointless in most cases. The thing about Devil Fruit abilities, like any abilities, is that they are controlled by their user; an item or weapon has no consciousness and thus can only work as a Zoan-type, which gives it one. How can a sword will itself to ignite or shoot fireballs when it has no will? There are probably some worthwhile ones amongst the Paramecia branch(ie, abilities similar to Gomu Gomu, that change the eaters constitution), but it'd have to be something more useful than a rubber sword, and something that couldn't be made any other way, or the result would be a waste of a DF. I guess you could say the same of Logia powers, but my understanding of the defensive change into ones Logia substance is that it require an awareness of the incoming attack, or at least general alertness. Besides, you need your sword to block, not dematerialise when struck.

    I certainly think it would be cool if Zoro managed to get a Dragon Sword; so the blade could move at will and surprise an opponent at any point, by slashing them in irregular ways, as well as breath fire. I don't think he would like it though, simply because it would mean the sword itself was fighting for him to some extent, and that would wound his pride. I can imagine him telling it to stay still like he does to Sogeking when they're chained together and Zoro tries to use Usopp like a sword.

    Anyway, I think giving objects/weapons is by far the best use of regular Zoan fruits, as it gives you a loyal pet with the same power you would otherwise have gained and you don't become a hammer, or can eat a Paramecia/Logia when you get the chance.

    As for what Zoro will do about his swords, I think he will replace Sandai Kitetsu for Shodai Kitetsu or another Supreme Grade Sword. He currently has 2 Great Grade Swords, and Shusui is shown to have greatly influence his attacks, so if he gets a katana in the same tier as Mihawk's Yoru then he should be well-equipped enough to have an equal footing with Mihawk(when he's skilled enough).

    I don't agree with you. The Zoan types are also just DF. They also are controlled by their user. Spandam had a sword which turned into an elephant on HIS command. Also, when Zoro obtained Sandai Kitetsu, he tried it out in Whiskey Peak. He said 'a sword should kill when his owner wants to' I think he meant this sword had it's own will. Or maybe that's just because it's cursed. But I do think a katana has a 'will'.

    I know about Funkfreed the Elephant-sword... Please read things throughly before making assumptions. I said the Zoan type gives them a will, which is why it works on objects; as taking on the attributes of an given animal means being able to think like said animal. Funkfreed actually makes its own decisions; it follows Spandam's orders like any pet would, but when Filgreed gets threatened by Franky he acts under his own will against Spandam commanding otherwise. Spandom does not control Funkfreed, he just tells it what to do.

    Well i guess zoro's sword could obtain a DF if Franky had taken some time to look through everything in Vegapunk's lab... Maybe there was something about transferring DF into a sword without it having to be a zoan type?

    Zoro has the ability to use ''Kyutoryu'' by activating the technique Kiki Kyutoryu: Asura.According to this ability a good idea for a devil fruit will be Hito Hito no mi : Asura.As a result he could manifest himself into a demon-human hybrid easier.Just like sengoku.

    Zoro don't need sea stone anymore cause he already got haki so he can get his opponent a solid attack.

    haki is only useful to a level that your spirit is stronger then them so if he goes against like shanks (imagine he had DV) it won't work as shanks has stronger haki than him plus it will be cool to have sea stone like smoker he has haki but he still has sea stone tip.
