    In an alternate universe, Ace does not turn around to Akainu's taunts during the War of the Best. He gets out alive. Some years pass and Ace gains Haki abilities over time, and he continues to get much stronger. Marco decides he does not have the ambition of becoming captain. Ace takes the captain role and leads the Whitebeard pirates.

    Alternate Universe Yonkous:
    Ace (leading the WB Pirates)
    Luffy (leading the Straw Hat Grand Fleet)
    Sabo (leading the Revolutionary Army)
    Shanks (leading the Red Hair Pirates)

    How badass would this be? They could ally against any powerful enemy and no one else, including the World Government, would stand a chance.

    I think Ace not dying changes too many things in the timeline.

    Are we to assume that in your timeline, the aforementioned 4 are the current yonkous with the canon ones ( BB, BM , Kaidou ) somehow gone. Cos I don't think events would play out similarly as canon with the crucial death of Ace missing. For instance, Luffy probably wouldn't have the resolve to train under Rayleigh and postpone their meeting for 2 years while Sabo, wouldn't recall his brotherhood with the 2 of them as it was through reading about Ace's death that triggered his recollection of his memories.

    This, sadly, is probably the truth. No matter how much Ace improves, he's not winning against a Gura + Yami combo Blackbeard. Extra irony if after Blackbeard hands Ace his ass AGAIN, he hands Ace over to the marines a second time.

    They wouldn't even bother with an execution this time. Just send him straight to the chopping block :(

    Oh, also:
    Uh, did BM and Kaido just disappear or something? I mean, it's a nice dream and all, but I don't think they're just going to roll over like that. And why the hell would Sabo ever want to become a Yonko? He's a revolutionary, not a pirate. He's not strong enough either, if anybody from the Revos is becoming a Yonko it's gonna be Dragon.

    Not really feeling the concept. Luffy has to beat the Yonko to become Pirate King by his own plans. Shanks and Ace are the only ones he was really interested in surpassing.

    The Revolutionaries are not pirates so them being actually in the Yonko race is impossible.

    If you're gonna do this timeline, you have to go all the way back and have it so that Sabo got away from Jalmack Scott free and continued on to be a pirate as planned. Then we have to decide if Sabo is the one that got stranded on Sixis and found the Mera Mera no Mi?

    Ace may have developed his Haki earlier as a matter of necessity without his high level logia. Sabo also has his own fighting style and Haki so he doesn't really need the Mera Mera no Mi.

    Honestly minus Ace, what you're describing is more of a Luffy as Pirate King scenario, where the only people remaining on the field are people who are allied with him or those who he didn't go through on his way to Raftel.

    First off.. Ace long since had Haki.

    Second... if he survived the War either he'd take Teach's place during the timeskip (an extra top Commander Level dude can potentially turn the defeat into a victory) or if they still lose... then there is nothing saving there can only be four Emperors... if Luffy can do it with his crew than the Whitbeard Pirates can certainly be the 5th (or maybe teach will be the 5th).

    Hmm.... okay. I was thinking EOS timeline as opposed to immediately post-time-skip in terms of Luffy, Ace, Sabo, Shanks holding the Yonkou spots.

    Would there be Yonko at the end of the series?

    In that case, if at EOS and before defeating WG, we might be seeing potentially the end of brotherhood and the makings of family drama as there is only one prize and someone has to take the mantle of PK.

    Otherwise, it would be very much a happy,ever after end as no major antagonists would likely remain.

    The fight between WB pirates and BB pirates were no where close for ace to make any difference.
