Notable Attacks/Techniques:

- Haki: There are normally two types of Haki regular people can tap into: the Kenbunshoku Haki which allows individuals to sense the presence of others, and Busōshoku Haki which allows individuals to create an invisible armor around them. There is however a third type of Haki, Haōshoku Haki, that only a few individuals can use. Ace is one of these people.

  • Haōshoku Haki (Color of the Conquering King): The ability to knock out someone else or a large group. While inexperienced users are restricted to intimidating one being or blindly knocking out any with weak wills around them, those with more expertise can pick out weak-willed individuals in a large group to knock out.


  • Busōshoku Haki (Color of Armaments): A form of Haki that allows the user to create an "invisible armor" around themselves. With that, they can protect themselves from attacks, and if trained well, use it to deliver stronger attacks. Besides the increase of strength, it is the only form of attack that doesn't involve Kairouseki that can hit any Devil Fruit user, being able to hit the user's original body even if it's a Logia user. It can also be used in weapons.


  • Kenbunshoku Haki (Color of Observation or Mantra): A form of Haki that allows the user to sense the presence of his opponents. A user of this type of Haki can predict an opponent's moves before he gets hit. This works by showing the user an image or brief "premonition" of what the opponent will do, manifested as a mental image in the user's mind's eye, and the damage the user will take if the attack "hit" for real. It appears that the more killer intent the enemy has the easier they are to predict, though more efficient users can predict future moves regardless of whether there are ambient murderous intents or not. Including the distance, location, and where the opponent may strike next.

Mera Mera no Mi (Flame Flame Fruit): A Logia-type Devil Fruit, this fruit allows the user to transform into fire at will as well as control it. The fruit's major strength like other Logia types allows the user to produce and become the element they control. In this case, Ace is able to create, control, and become fire. With this in mind, Ace is able to create fire-based attacks. The elemental state the ability to endow him with also allows him to avoid conventional attacks as they only disperse him. Turning into fire also has the added effect of burning an opponent depending should the attack be close range and such. Though the user is fire in the elemental state, they are weak against magma, which can consume flames and can be burned by it despite their dispersion, making it their natural enemy.

  • Hiken: Ace's apparent signature attack. Ace turns his fist into flames and launches it as a column of fire at his target.


  • Higan: Pointing the index and middle fingers of both hands at an opponent like guns, Ace turns his fingertips into flames and shoots bullets made of fire at them.


  • Shinka: Shiranui: Ace launches two long lances made of fire at his opponent's chest. The lances have the combined effect of simultaneously burning an opponent while piercing their chest.


  • Jūjika: Ace puts his index fingers together in a cross shape before launching a cross-shaped column of flame directly at his opponent.




  • Hotarubi Hidaruma: Ace creates many small fireballs that float around an enemy before flying into them all at once, burning them.


  • Kagerō: Ace shoots a stream of fire from the palm of his hand.


  • Enjōmō: Ace creates a circle of fire around a selected area, preventing anyone from entering or leaving it.


  • Kyokaen: Ace releases a large number of flames and forms in a firewall to defend against attacks.


  • Enkai: Ace conjures a large number of flames around his body in preparation for an attack.


    • Hibashira: Ace shoots the collected flames straight upward like a large fire pillar, destroying a target above him.

    • Daienkai: Entei: Ace's ultimate technique. Ace creates a gigantic fireball resembling the sun and hurls it at his opponent to try to obliterate them. It created a huge explosion strong enough to cover half of a rather large island.
