- She spent time training karate with Koala during the two-year time skip and thanks to this, she was able to win fights against Black Maria.
- She is the youngest paleontologist and a skilled archaeologist, giving her a vast knowledge of history and culture. Became a skilled archeologist, she was also the only one who could read language written on Poneglyph tablets.
- Because of her Devil Fruit Hana Hana no Mi, she has the ability to spread her body parts on any surface including her own body, and is able to create copies on them. With this power, she can carry her friends using her feet and hands when they hurt.
- Beyond her Devil Fruit powers, she has no superhuman abilities. But from the battle, she was seen that she was much stronger than people expected. She is able to take direct hits from Yama’s drop kicks and punches and is still able to effectively retaliate after maneuvering.

- Her ability to sprout also depends on her physical strength, which means if the opponent is too heavy, she might have trouble holding them.
- Her Devil Fruit also limits to objects that she can see clearly for her ability to sprout her limb on them, if she can’t see the object, she can’t capture the enemy, attack, or even counter the attack.

“When you have a hard time, just laugh”

“There is no such thing as being born into the world to be alone”
“Sometimes the only thing you have to doubt is your own common sense”
