Before Luffy rose to fame as captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, his older brother Ace built a notable reputation throughout the One Piece seas. One of the main reasons for this popularity is a memorable battle with one of the Shichibukai. Unfortunately, fans will probably never have the chance to witness this event.
However, references to Ace’s adventures after he left Dawn Island were mentioned briefly in the anime and manga. In particular, deeper details about these feats are explored in the novel “Ace’s Story” by Sho Hinata. In the past, Ace had a violent clash with Jinbe, during five days of non-stop fighting, until both were too exhausted to continue.
Additionally, the recent chapter 1100 of the One Piece manga also highlights how he upsets the balance of the pirate world. It turns out that the fight with Jinbe wasn’t Ace’s only important battle with Shichibukai.
The story takes an interesting turn with the mention of Ace defeating one of the Shichibukai, leading to Kuma being appointed to the position. Ace’s victory over an unknown member of the Shichibukai organization is an intriguing mystery in the One Piece universe. It hints at an epic battle that fans will likely never witness.
Ace’s defeat of Shichibukai caused significant changes in the world of One Piece. Because the Shichibukai are considered extremely powerful pirates, used by the World Government to maintain peace and balance the balance between the three powerful powers at sea.
Kuma’s rise to this position, following Ace’s victory, was an attempt to keep the Government’s image intact before the public and other Shichibukai. This decision has profound implications, including Kuma’s important role in rescuing Luffy and the Straw Hats on the Sabaody Archipelago.
Kuma’s inclusion as Shichibukai had a domino effect, leading to his confrontation with Luffy on Thriller Bark and the subsequent rescue of the Straw Hats. This chain of events can be traced back to Ace’s battle, significantly influencing Luffy’s subsequent journey and story.
Although Ace did not survive to see the consequences of his actions, his actions were instrumental in paving the way for Luffy to become Pirate King. Even after his death, Ace’s impact on the world of One Piece continues to resonate.
