    Have to admit though, this is kinda how Luffy got his 1st bounty. But I don't think this will happen to those two.
    Uh, Toy Soldier is currently involved in the battle with the Donquixote crew. Unlike the Franky Family, his battle can't be overlooked.

    Re: Why does nobody want Rebecca to join the Strawhats?

    i don't think Rebecca will not fit in the SH because we don't know what will be her position on the Sunny(ship) because all of the SH crew has their own job at the ship

    OMG TWO VILEPLUME

    100% sure that Zoro already surpassed mihawk! 10/06/10

    Do we know what Jinbe's post on the ship will be when he joins?

    Jimbei will be the helmsman or something. He will be some sort of safekeeper of the crew.

    Jinbe has never displayed inclination to be a helmsman, he was just briefly seen steering a marine battleship.

    I think it's quite obvious that Jinbe would be the First Mate, since none of the Strawhats have been addressed as such, and Jinbe has already been a captain. Not the mention that he is easily stronger than Zoro or Sanji, which would make it suitable for him to be the second in command.

    It was mentioned by bartolomeo that zoro was the first mate right? Anyways, jimbei could always be the "fishman" of the crew.

    Barto calls Zoro first mate, yes, but he says himself that's just his head canon. It's not a ship position any of the Strawhats have talked about. Strictly speaking first mate means second in command, and the Strawhats don't have a command structure aside from Luffy being captain, so it's not actually a position they need. The other role would be to take command in the absence of the captain, but as we've seen any number of times when Luffy isn't around the crew decide what to do by discussing it or doing the obvious without needing to be told, so again it's not a necessary position.

    He's not going to be the first mate. We don't know who's stronger, given Sanji took a punch from Luffy AND Jinbei and acted as if nothing happened afterwards. Zoro is likely the first mate as he is extremely strong and was the first to join the crew. Jinbei will most likely turn the Monster Trio into Monster Four.

    My point is that Luffy doesn't care about posts when he recruits new members (except for a musician). If Rebecca joins, her position on the ship will be revealed then.

    Re: Why does nobody want Rebecca to join the Strawhats?

    That's rarely the case, usually position is revealed way before the Straw Hat joins. I think Robin was/is the only exception, and possibly Jinbei. Otherwise we usually see what position the member fills before he joins. Swordsman and another powerful fighter, navigator, sniper and intermediate toolsman, cook and powerful fighter, doctor, archaeologist (?), shipwright, and musician swordsman.

    IIRC Luffy might have announced the need for a musican before meeting Broook, but he clearly invited him for a whole other reason.

    Showing a character steering the wheel with hundreds of characters on board who could do the same is an inclination that Jinbe is apt in being a helmsman.

    Zoro was adressed several times throughout the manga as the first mate/vice-captain of the crew.

    It's almost like the manga itself is arguing against you.

    So what about Usopp and Chopper who have been steering the wheel dozens of times?

    Besides Jinbe has already been a captain on his own and may be stronger than Luffy, wouldn't it be weird for him to join the Strawhats to fill a function that the crew is not exactly missing?

    These are all scanlation mistakes.

    Re: Why does nobody want Rebecca to join the Strawhats?

    It doesn't matter whether Jinbei is stronger than Luffy, is seen as such, or has higher bounty than Luffy. All that does is hype Luffy up even more for his enemies and allies because it says a lot about Luffy's power if an extremely powerful Fishman is under Luffy. Just as what observing Zoro's power did for Luffy (Water 7 and Enies Lobby, when Franky's family saw Zoro in action), Jinbei can have the same effect. The Straw Hats need more power anyway, given the level of opponents they will come across, and Rebecca isn't likely to fulfill the power role that the Straw Hats need, not better than Jinbei anyway.

    Jinbei doesn't need to be a helmsman, he can get other roles that suit him. So far though, Rebecca has not shown to be impressive or in any way an interesting character, unless you count showing skin. Pretty sure most boys only want her on the crew because she wears so little, not because of her character.
