Ace’s death was one of the most shocking events in One Piece. He was the adopted brother of Ace and they grew up to be very close to each other. They used to spend all of their time together roaming around, training to become strong pirates along with their third brother Sabo. They come to meet when Luffy’s Grandpa “Garp” who has been raising him uptil now gives him off to live with some mountain bandits on the to live with them as he says that he would visit them whenever he gets time. Along with the mountain bandits, there is another kid, named Ace, 3 years older than Luffy ( Whom we later find is the son of Gol D. Roger ). Luffy and Ace don’t get along at first but soon become friends
They also have another friend named Sabo as we just mentioned who belonged to a noble family but roamed around with them all day and night. The three of them went on hunting as well as other adventures together. They became very close friends and fought off quite a few battles together as kids. And one day they decided to make a pact of becoming brothers by drinking Sake which they did. They had heard that people who drank sake together become brothers. After that they actually thought of each others as brothers and kept on doing adventures
A Bit More About Luffy And Ace’s Childhood
While having their many adventures all of them decide to become pirates. But the pressure from the noble family of Sabo often led to him getting beat and running away. This led to him leaving the group to become a pirate and running away, but whilst he is running away to become a pirate alone without his 2 brothers due to the complications with his family. He is shot by a canon and his ship sinks and he apparently dies at that point ( We are only told later in the story that Sabo is still alive )
After hearing about the death of Sabo, both Ace and Luffy cry their hearts out and don’t know what to do, they promise to each other that they won’t be sad and would continue on to become pirates. They decided that both of them would leave to start their pirate journey at the age 17. They went on adventures and trained together till then. Ace being 2 years older than Luffy, became 17 when Luffy was 15 and left alone on a ship to start his pirate journey. This is where Luffy and Ace part ways, they promise each other that the next time they meat both of the would be pirates. Luffy stayed behind for 2 more years training himself to become strong and soon when he becomes 17, his pirate journey also starts.
After he goes on to a journey and is on his adventures, he meets ace for the first time in Alabasta whilst he is trying to find Blackbeard and Luffy is just out on one of his adventures. Down below is a video attached when Luffy and Ace finally unite after over 2 years
Ace was off finding blackbeard who had betrayed the whitebeaerad pirates. Later on he went on to fight him and lost in a drastic face off.
After he lost to Blackbeard he was given off to the marine by the Blackbeard pirate in an attempt for them to become shichbukai which they did. Ace being captured by the marine had caused quite a chaos all around as he was the 2nd decision commander of the whitebeard pirates who was considered the most strong pirate of the time and he was bound to do something to protect his subordinate ( or his son as he calls them ). It became necessary for the marines to execute Ace even further when the truth about his father being Gol. D Roger came out.
And hence, the battle known as the battle of marineford took place between the whitebeard pirates, their allies, and the marine. It was during this battle that dying after being freed by Luffy in an attempt to protect him from a punch of an admiral. Ace died in the arms of Luffy whilst protecting him and Luffy at that very moment realizing what had happened started profusely crying and lost his consciousness

“It’s no use, he fried my insides. I won’t last much longer I can tell My life is at an end probably wouldn’t have wanted to live… If it weren’t for that whole deal with Sabo And having an unruly brother like you. Oh, right if you ever see Dadan, then give her my regards. For some reason, now that I know I’m gonna die even her name sounds touching to me. I only have one regret. That, I couldn’t see you fulfill your dream. But I’m sure you can make it. You’re my little brother. On that day
Just like we promised on that day The way I lived my life I have no regrets about it. I’m not lying. what I truly wanted wasn’t fame or anything like that after all. Was it good that I was born? What I wanted… Was the answer to that question. I… Can’t speak loud enough for the others to hear it. Please… Pass on what I’m about to say. Old Man… Everyone… And you, Luffy… Even though… I’m so worthless… Even though… I carry the blood of a demon… Thank you… For loving me! “
