As far as I know those are the only two Fruits of the same name/different models, however all the Zoan types have a model. I think this gives Oda the freedom to keep making animal characters without worrying about his own rules and having to keep renaming the fruits.

    And I assume nothing about the origins or rules of the Fruits other than what Oda has revealed, so it's my understanding that there exist only one of each.

    I want to believe that Roger never ate a fruit and had something else about him that made him great. I don't believe that raw strength or super natural abilities is what makes you the best, especially in the One Piece world.

    A lot of people are waiting to see what Shanks special power is or how unbelievably strong or skilled he is. Until that day comes, I hope Shanks true power is his personality, his charisma and his sense of "right". I think the government fears him so much because he has the ability to unite the people and change the world, for the better. I think these are the same qualities Roger had. He was executed because of his ideals and possibly for the information he possessed about the "true history".

    I've seen people use Bounties as the equivalent of power levels, similiar to Dragonball. Like my previous examples I didn't think that was the case and I'm very pleased to see that Oda has backed this up recently with Robin. Yes she's "powerful", but her true value was based on her knowledge.

    or it could be that oda noticed he made the "hero" characters insanely powerful but it was sorta late in the game to backtrack and make them a little bit weaker so he made characters that were slightly like them i.e. shanks, mihawk, etc. so that there are still levels above them without having the "hero" characters having to rise above and defeating them. eh all reminds me of dbz still... that anime for some reason ruined all anime's for me but w/e one piece has pirates.. and pirates kick all concievable ass =D
    yes im the alucard cerberus from narutofan if you didn\'t already know

    Could it be possible that he ate every single kind of Devil Fruit? ^^. Then when he died everyone else could start eating them again. Or maybe he found a "God fruit". Then he got himself killed by will to create the giant pirate era. Maybe that is the one piece treasure .

    Anyways

    Shanks could have eaten a devil fruit after he lost his arm. Because he must have done somthing for Mihawk to lose the will to fight him.

    Like losing an arm? Mihawk wouldn't fight someone with a handicap.
