Due to the fruit's fire elemental power, the user's fire powers would be negated by water. While it has not been exactly shown what water would do to Ace in the middle of a battle, it has been shown what it would do to him if Ace were thrown into water and how it would affect him to a degree on dry land.
- (Examples given were Ace fallen into the river like in the cover story...)
Let me just say... River = same effect as the sea. Its possible this is the weakness (like 100% like hell it is), but he needs to be hit out on land. Even Luffy would have been in a pickle there being thrown into the river. One-Winged Hawk 17:09, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
- The example that was given was to show that Ace's powers appeared to be negated after being thrown into the water and Ace was fished out. Being wet, it appeared that even if Ace had some sort of automatic unconscious defense he apparently didn't fry Mouda immediately who not only fished him out of the water but also apparently performed CPR to get the water out of his system. Basically what the line says is that Ace was physically touched by a person while being wet and they didn't get burn.Mugiwara Franky 03:54, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
- If any DF had been in the water long enough though... It would have been a simulair story. Water negates the effects of DF if they are completely submerged. I suppose in some respects that your are most likely right about after he was fished out. But any person DF or otherwise after swallowing a ton of water might need medical attention reguardless. And from the story if you catch a Logia off guard you can do them harm so I guess being down for the count Ace wouldn't react anyway.
- Hey I know this is correct because; fire=put out by water. Thats not the issue, its just the example we have isn't solid. And if Ace is dead I doubt we'll ever seen a solid example. One-Winged Hawk 08:05, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
Here's a new theory: if Ace uses intense heat of his flames, he might actually be strong enough to evaporate water being poured on him (rain, bucket full of water, etc). However, falling in a river or ocean will obviously put him out. However, what if Ace uses his intense heat to evaporate a huge of body of water, like Aokiji using "Ice Age" to freeze an entire ocean? Yatanogarasu 03:01 16 November 2008 (UTC)
- Theres a downside to that, he has to use his heat before the water stops his powers. Worth the risk...? :-O One-Winged Hawk 18:48, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
If Aokiji can freeze the ocean, then Ace should be able to epavorate the ocean as well.

Right writing? Edit
I just threw 炎帝 into Google to check up on something... And what I got wasn't "Entei" related at all.
Can someone investigate this further and find out if we have the right text here, if not we need the right one. One-Winged Hawk 22:20, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
- Okay did some rooting to find out what's going on. Ended up on bulbapedia (which incidentally has a better explanation up than we do on the name). It sort of makes sense now. But, we could really do with a better explanation here. One-Winged Hawk 22:37, April 6, 2010 (UTC)
Mera Mera no Mi's meaning! Edit
Much like a lot of other stuff in One Piece like the Logia fruits, that come from the ancient Greek word λόγια which means words, mera means μέρα aka day! Terroflames 20:17, 6 Νοεμβρίου 2010
- Mera mera is the Japanese onomatapoeia for the sound of fire crackling. It has nothing to do with Greek, you are right about Logia's origin, though.DancePowderer 20:23, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
- That could be just a coincidence though and not what Oda intended. As DancePowderer said, 'Mera mera' after all is the Japanese onomatopoeia for "being devoured by flames" or fire crackling. MasterDeva 20:42, November 6, 2010 (UTC)
Non-Canon Attacks Edit
I found a movelist of Ace in the the Wii game "Unlimited Cruise 2", where he had several canon moves, but a three hit combo called "Flare Fist" (Dashes forward with a right Straight on fire), "Flame Roundhouse" (Turns his left leg into fire and kicks the opponent in the head) & "Blistering Barrage" (Basically a fiery Gomu Gomu Gatling).
Since I saw Kizaru's monkey laser attack from Gigant Battle got added, should we add these three?(S.C. Amigo 18:18, December 22, 2010 (UTC))
I say go ahead and add them. Just be sure to include the Japanese translations and that they were only used in the game.DancePowderer 23:49, December 22, 2010 (UTC)
First appearance Edit
Can someone explains to me how "not snowing" is a demonstration of the fruit's powers? If you say it's a foreshadow, I can agree... but I disagree on this istance being the first appearance. Because the all the shichibukai appeared when Yosaku told Luffy about them, since they were foreshadowed.
89 23:02, 9 September, 2011 (UTC)
We should add it, when he demonstrated the powers. Not when Ace was introduced..
We should not since it would be speculation considering that before the first chapter it was seen for real, we had no idea he even had a DF, let alone talk about it appearing and proving its powers, we also have absolutly no idea if not snowing was really because of the DF, the weather on the grand line is unpredictable, this is simple speculation, lets go the jinbe way, until I see him on fire, his DF did not appear yet
"Not snowing" was a foreshadow... but that's a literary technique, not an evidence. For example an instance of "first appearance not clearly demonstrated" is the Suna Suna no Mi or the Hana Hana no Mi, in these cases the powers are shown but we couldn't tell how they worked... I'm fine with these, for example.

Why was the picture changed? Edit
I seem to recall that we once used this for the page - why the change? If the new picture were really good I could understand it, but it's not. The new picture feels like there's too much, too many flames, not enough focus on Ace and the fact that Luffy is on it really doesn't help when you are trying to depict his brothers DF abilities. 184.108.40.206 15:20, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
There was a discussion about using animated gifs in infoboxes (you can look it up here), with the results being the removal of all gifs from infoboxes. 15:26, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
That's not the point. The question is: Why this new image, instead of a version of the old one that wasn't a gif? 220.127.116.11 20:30, September 10, 2011 (UTC)
I guess its because people were too lazy to get a picture of the Mera mera no Mi like that and upload it then post it there, guess I'll do it.
Damn, I can't get a good shot at it, the quality is horrible, guess I'll leaev this to Levi
Instead of asking "what's the problem", why don't you just read what I wrote in the beginning where I explain what my problems are? It would be as I would now ask "Do you think the picture is fine?" But if you really want me to repeat it: I don't like that the focus isn't as much on Ace as it was on this picture (or this one), I don't like that the picture is cluttered with flames, I don't like that Luffy is on the picture (he has nothing to do with the Mera Mera no Mi) and I don't like that Ace is so small on it. Just compare it to the new picture for the Suna Suna no Mi (is it really that difficult to find non-gif versions of old ones) - Crocodile takes up twice as much space as Ace, it's only him and he's not hidden behind a wall of sand. 18.104.22.168 08:07, September 12, 2011 (UTC)
You're more than welcome to change it for a better picture..10:08, September 12, 2011 (UTC)
I was asking Ricizubi, since he said "I can't get a good shot", I read your post. As you know we decided to not use gif in the infoboxes, then for the mera mera we have two choice: use a static version of the previous gif (the gif was pointless anyway) or find another shot. We should look in the recent episodes since after Skypiea arc the anime is in HQ, the current one looks fine to me because it shows the "fire powers" very well. If you have any other suggestion, tell us the episode and the moment, we will look for it since you can't upload images if you are not registered (maybe you can register too?).
89 10:12, 12 September, 2011 (UTC)
I don't see anything wrong with the current image. SeaTerror 20:06, September 12, 2011 (UTC)
Maybe you have noticed, but I reupload the image in this file, before the first version was used, I uploaded both in the same file so you can discuss in its talk page which version use (or upload another one).

Fruit image vs. Power imageEdit
Okay, this is something I'd like to settle.
I understand that for some pages, the image for the fruit's page is the fruit itself, rather than its power. However, this isn't consistent. So I want to ask, should fruits where we know what it looks like have their page image be the fruit itself, or should we always focus on the power itself? The Pope 17:12, March 1, 2013 (UTC)
IF the fruit has been shown, we show that in the infobox obviously, since the infobox is for the fruit (no Mi = fruit of...). I don't think it's really up to discussion since it feels kind of obvious, and it isn't inconsistent at all. Currently all of the fruits that has been shown is in their corresponding infoboxes as they should be. Sewil 17:19, March 1 - 2013
I believe the policy is to always display the fruit when possible in the infobox. However, the switch template has been working out quite well for us recently, so why not use both? Talk | 17:20, March 1, 2013 (UTC)
Since the ability of the fruit has it's own headline, which is "Usage". Sewil 17:21, March 1 - 2013
We show the abilities in other images further down anyway. The only way for it to be consistent is for every fruit user to die and have their fruits appear next to their corpses. The switch template is a bad idea for this.18:05, March 1, 2013 (UTC)
Actually, from how the Sara Sara no Mi, Model: Axolotl was shown, apparently fruits become Devil Fruits when the user dies, right? The DF doesn't just grow out of nowhere. This would mean there are multiple forms a Devil Fruit can take. If we see a Mera-Mera user die again, we'll see the fruit respawn in a different form. So wouldn't it be better to have the infobox image be the power, as the fruit never has a definite form?
Adding my two cents a year later.02:19, March 26, 2014 (UTC)
I hate to plug an old blog of mine, but my piece Metaphysical Horticulture already proved that fruits respawn in the same fruit that it was eaten.04:16, March 26, 2014 (UTC)
Well then...I guess that settles it then.04:40, March 26, 2014 (UTC)
BB said he learned what the Yami looked like from a book. That book could only have any bearing if the fruit stayed consistent.08:03, March 26, 2014 (UTC)
The section on the fruit's strengths and weaknesses is very weak. It fails to describe the power of the fruit in any useful way. It basically just states that the fruit is a logia and it does things like other logias. It fails to mention that the fruit's unique element of fire differentiates it from other logias. There is a huge difference between being able to become Mud like Caribou or some sticky substance like Trebol and being able to become fire. The Mera Mera no Mi has been said to have the power to level cities. It has been shown to cause massive explosions destroying multiple battleships at once. Some reference should be made to the fruit's abnormal destrucutive potential.
22.214.171.124 23:55, March 25, 2014 (UTC)
I was kind of hoping it would've been eaten by Luffy instead.
