History (One Piece manga)Edit
Five Worlds War: Fairy Tail CampaignEdit
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
As one of the officers of the Donquixote Pirates and a member of the Coalition Bomb Squad, Gladius is a powerful fighter. In Dressrosa, he demonstrated his skill as he was able to hold his own in a fight against both Cavendish and Bartolomeo, each of whom has a bounty of over 100 million, for a long period of time. He able to face off against a multiple number of foes, such as when he faced off against a over a dozen of Hyuga Clan members, including the Clan Head, Hiashi Hyuga, and one of Fairy Tail wizard Levy McGarden, simultaneously, and even emerging victorious. He was able to fight on par with one of Fairy Tail's Dragon Slayer, Gajeel Redfox and, with his Devil Fruit, in the process able to blow off both of Gajeel arms.
Devil Fruit Edit
Gladius ate a Paramecia-class Devil Fruit, the Pop Pop Fruit, which allows him to make any inorganic object he touches rupture and explode by causing the object to swell until it bursts. Using this power creates a grenade-like effect that sends pieces of the ruptured object flying in all directions like shrapnel. In Dressrosa, although the toys are transformed people, they are considered inorganic in toy form, thus enabling him to kill them with his ability. This also includes to people who are able to turn the own body part to something inorganic, such as with the Iron Dragon Slayer Gajeel Redfox, who was is able to turn his limbs to weapons, such as clubs, through his Dragon Slayer magic.
Gladius uses this ability for combat. He can cause his own arms to swell up and explode while grabbing onto his opponents, causing explosive damage, or grab onto an object and cause it to work as a grenade by launching shrapnel with the explosion injuring his opponents. Due to his Devil Fruit, Hiashi theorized he was worst type of opponent for the Hyuga clansmen, as his Devil Fruit works within a long range, and is therby dangerous for any close-combat fighters, such as the Hyuga clansmen, who specialized in the Gentle Fist style, and the worst type of opponent for Gajeel who could turn his limbs into inorganic weapons, through his Iron Dragon Slayer magic.
