Portgas D Ace was the former 2nd division commander of the Whitebeard Pirates, and adoptive brother of Monkey D. Luffy. Son of the Pirate King Gol D. Roger.

Ace holds the powers of the Flame-Flame Fruit (メラメラの実, Mera Mera no Mi). This is one of the powerful logia-type devil fruits. This has altered the make up of his body into a living flame. This also makes him immune to physical based attacks. Punches, swords, and even gunshots will pass through his body leaving him completely unharmed.

  • Sun Flare: The Sun Flare (陽炎, Kagerō) technique is used when Ace first clashed against Smoker. A stream of flames pored from his hands and enveloped Smoker’s cloud. The two attacks canceled each other out. The FUNimation dub called this attack Heat Haze.
  • Fire Fist: The Fire Fist (火拳, Hiken) attack is one of Ace’s more favored techniques, and is the source of his nickname “Fire Fist Ace”. With this technique, Ace fires a giant column of pure fire from his fist. It’s powerful enough to destroy several giant ships in a single strike.
  • Fire Gun: The Fire Gun (火銃, Higan) attack is use when Ace holds out his hand like a gun, the tip of him finger becomes a flame, and he shoots out a bullet made of fire.
  • Flame Commandment: The Flame Commandment (炎戒, Enkai) is a technique Ace uses to summon large amounts of fire in preparation for a powerful attack. One of these is the Fire Pillar (火柱, Hibashira) attack. It creates a destructive pillar of fire that can be fired straight up or down.
  • Firefly: The Firefly (蛍火, Hotarubi) technique is another preparation skill for another attack. Ace creates numerous, small glowing orbs of fire that silently surround his opponent. Their greenish glow makes them look like fireflies. However, when Ace then triggers the Fiery Doll (火達磨, Hidaruma) attack with this technique. These balls of super hot flame converge on the target and set their body instantly aflame.


    Haki (覇気, Haki) is a power that is possessed by all people, but few can actually use it. It’s often unique to those with a strong enough will to control. This power is even strong enough to cancel out the powers of Devil Fruit users, but even they can use this skill. There are three basic forms of Haki, and Ace has only been seen to be able to use one.

    • Conqueror’s Haki: The skill known as Conqueror’s Haki (覇王色, Haoushoku Haki) is one of the rarest forms of Haki.It’s an intimidation tactic that is not to be abused, because it will effect all that surround. When used it an cause people surrounding the user to pass out or even control the person’s will for a short time. Ace was completely unaware he had this power, and he only used it once as a young boy to stop Bluejam from killing Luffy.
