so you're saying that Ace was adopted meaning no, he's not really Luffy's brotherOriginally Posted by check0r
my guess is half-brothers..same mother different father.. Ace's father died killed by Dragon and so was his wife for not being faithful then Dragon hands them over to old Garp who gives them to Whoop Slap(just a guess)
Efreet ....this is manga la...u think Soap Opera meh....
Errmmm....maybe u could be right also.....OP is full of suprises...
I think they are actual brothers.
Ace is 3 years older than Luffy, isn't he? He could have known about the issue with Dragon if he was of on Revolutionary activities and the like when Ace was younger, and before Luffy was born. Ace didn't want to get tangled up in the mess, so he changed his name. He also never told Luffy about their father, because by then, Dragon was only known by that--Just "Dragon"--so there was no need to change his name.
If that makes any sense...well...whatever. XD That's just what I think, anyway.
yeah but that would not make sense
I mean Ace is a pirate not a marine meaning no need to be ashamed of his name...
he is luffy's brother completely..................said it himself the name does not matter since he change it for any reason like not wanting people take him as dragon's son
Well, I thought he would have changed his name, anyway. If he was somehow connected to Dragon, then wouldn't the Marines want him all the more?
Well, whatever. Ace + Luffy = Brothers. XD
yeah but what could be the reason for Ace changing his name that would be so greatOriginally Posted by NinjAngel
I mean ...
wait a minute if Ace did change his name how come Luffy didn't say anything about his name when they saw each other last time so that is in fact his name, meaning that they maybe are not brothers or that Portgas might be their mother's name or they might just not be realted.....by blood......
I am, officially, confused.
For now, there are just so many holes in whatever theory we come up with. I'm content to just say they are brothers, and wait for Oda to tell us the difference. XD
i like mugen theories that luffy took dragons name and ace there moms name same parents just different last names and they are blodd related
Hm...I wonder why they would have done that, though. Or, if there was a reason for that, like, some kind of custom in their family. *is probably thinking too hard on this one*
yeah i know it was just an idea idkif it would work out like that
yeah if ace isn't luffy's brother why he want to go all out because of luffy??
man i just hate the fact that Eiichiro had to make Ace a subordinate
I mean Ace is just too cool to be a subordinate and worse he's not even in Shanks crew...
he's in Whitebeards a once great pirate..
and still not a cool one
and worse he tried to invite his bro to that crew..
Ace's name can not just go without meaning ..
i mean it is another mystery..
but I think that Oda just did it cuz Monkey D. Ace sounds lame
