Rosinante ate the Paramecia type Devil Fruit known as Nagi Nagi No Mi. The main ability of this fruit is that it grants its user to nullify sounds within a certain amount of area. He always used the power of this devil fruit to its full extent.

As he had the ability to silent voices, this fruit came very useful while working as an undercover marine officer. Despite not having any direct combat advantages, this devil fruit helped Rosinante conduct special undercover operations without making any sound. He also could hold private confidential discussions without the fear of being overheard.
