Portgas D. Ace (ポートガス・D・エース, Pōtogasu D. Ēsu), also known as "Fire Fist" Ace (火拳のエース, Hiken no Ēsu), is commander of the 2nd division of the Whitebeard Pirates and the adopted elder brother of Monkey D. Luffy. He was later revealed to be the son of the Pirate King Gol D. Roger, named Gol D. Ace (ゴール・D・エース, Gōru D. Ēsu), and took his mother's surname Portgas after the death of his father.
When one of his subordinates, Marshall D. Teach, killed another crew member, Ace swore to hunt him down only to lose track of him and was eventually handed to the World Government after losing to Teach in a duel. Ace was sentenced to death which resulted in the Marineford War, an event that took the lives of both Ace and Whitebeard. Players can unlock him in the third game's Dream Log Mode.
Ace is an intelligent but sometimes impatient young man who always treasures his friends. He treats Whitebeard as his father and the Whitebeard Pirates as his family. He also cares about Luffy to a great extent. He is also somewhat narcoleptic, a trait that became one of the many running gags of the series.

Ace ate the Flame-Flame Fruit, a Logia-type Devil Fruit which allows him to become the embodiment of the element of fire. He can turn his body into fire, as well produce a limitless amount of fire and manipulate it. By turning into fire, Ace can avoid harm from conventional physical attacks, as they will simply just pass through his intangible fiery body. He greatly mastered his fruit's powers and became very skillful at it. Ace has a very explosive and fast-paced fighting style, as most of his attacks have a large area of effect from the fiery explosions. Some of his attack finishers can be enhanced by charging the attack. Charging the attack is done by refraining from pressing the button for the finisher until the very last moment. This is accompanied by a visual cue, where Ace will start to charge up and develop a fiery aura around his body. He also possesses Haoshoku Haki.
