    Re: Why does nobody want that Rebecca joins the Strawhat?

    And what will be Rebecca's reason for joining? And what will be her dream/goal?

    Luffy - Pirate King, Zoro - Best Swordsman, Nami - Map of the World etc.

    I don't think Luffy will invite her to the crew either.

    Re: Why does nobody want that Rebecca joins the Strawhat?

    Franky's dream was to build a ship that can sail around the world.... it'll only be fulfilled once Luffy reaches Raftel (officially) and maybe when he goes back to water 7 in the same ship (technically).

    If I remember right, Chopper's was to find the cure for all illnesses and be the best doctor; and Usopp wanted to be a brave warrior of the sea (might see more development out of him when he goes to Elbaf).

    Chopper wants to become a great doctor/possibly the world's greatest doctor, and Usopp's dream is to become a brave warrior of the sea. And Franky's dream isn't complete yet, he still has to sail his ship through the grandline to prove that it is the best.

    What goal does Rebecca have besides defeating Dofla? I would much rather see a dwarf join than a copy of a weak and boring character from Alabasta.

    Re: Why does nobody want that Rebecca joins the Strawhat?

    If she were to join, it would mean both king Riku and Soldier failed or died and she would have nothing left to do but run. Even then, I don't see how she would be ready to abandon her people and turn into a pirate.

    Heh

    Re: Why does nobody want that Rebecca joins the Strawhat?

    Although i dont mind rebecca joining, i Hope she doesent. She is more like shirahoshi from fishman arc rather than vivi. I dont think that violet will join either. Rebecca doesent have anything unique in her(well she doesnt have anything the strawhats dont). She is surely a good character and she is also brave and courageous, but i would rather see wicca join the crew than rebecca.

    Re: Why does nobody want that Rebecca joins the Strawhat?

    Because she is a boring character. We have the choice between Kinemon & Bartolomeo. Those two are far more interesting.
    My current guess for this arc is that Rebecca will eat the mera mera no mi & stay to protect her country.

Even the fact that she lacks strangeness or something to add to the crew (its not like they need a fodder level swordswoman) is secondary to that.

    I think he will. If he was willing to ask strange animals on Thriller Bark to join, he'll ask a useless character to join as long as he/she is a good person.

    Franky's dream is to sail around the world in Sunny, but he's also on the crew because he has a useful role. Almost everyone is on the crew because they fulfill some kind of role, whether it's Luffy's personal role (musician) or necessary role (shipwright). So far, Rebecca doesn't seem to be able to fulfill any role but skimpy clothes.

    Re: Why does nobody want that Rebecca joins the Strawhat?

    Up to now I don't see that a reason to really hate her. I don't llike her because she cries to much. I think there have been several very good reasons why she shouldn't join:

    - No dream that requires sailing around, if she can live with the toy soldier she will be happy.
    - No useful ability for the crew. With the mera mera no mi she would be a additional hammer. (And the fruit is wasted on a weak character that would be killed by the first haki user she meets.
    - Competition for the next nakama is strong, Kinemon and others have travelled with them for a while and would be useful. The only point for her is that she's a girl...

    LOL this question is absurd (no offense) but Rebecca can't hope to keep up with the strawhats' craziness!

    Re: Why does nobody want that Rebecca joins the Strawhat?

    I think she would only be useful when fighting invaders on Sunny. That way, she could make them fall into the sea.

    That could be her role in the crew. Bouncer

Add that to the fact that she doesn't have any obvious attachments to Dressrosa and she would seem like a more suitable candidate. Now of course, Violet's appearance and introduction, as an assassin, are somewhat similar to Robin's, but even so she would bring more to the crew than Rebecca, at least in my mind.
    I totally agree with you even nami who used to be in the weak trio she can totally stomp her easy with her weather technics the thing is r many ppl wants rebecca to join the crew because they want a chick to join the crew. I dont mind her to be a future ally and friend to the sh but to actual enter the crew thats a waste of a crew slot for me when there are so many ppl with more potential than rebecca for me even if oda will make her having haoushoku haki for a personal reason i still wont like rebecca as a character. You cant like all the characters there are in one piece can you?

    Re: Why does nobody want that Rebecca joins the Strawhat?

    What's all this nonsense of Rebecca wanting to stay on Dressrosa to help out "her" people? When has Rebecca given even the slightest indication that she gives a rat's ass about Dressrosa? Why would she give a rat's ass about a country that's treated her like shit for years? What, suddenly because it'll come to light that the people were deceived by Doflamingo she'll smile and say "lol, no big deal! lemme be princess!"? Chances are, yeah, she may want to do that. Maybe. If Oda wants to write a bad story. However, I haven't seen anything in the manga that points to this. It's plausible that she doesn't even know she's a princess to begin with!

    People who say she's a Vivi clone are out of their mind. Vivi was loved by her country and its inhabitants and she loved her country in return, to the point where she was willing to risk her life for it. The only thing Rebecca has in common with her is that they are of royal blood due to heritage. Rebecca is "princess" only in blood and heritage, but has she ever even been given the title? Does she even want it? Everybody just seems to be assuming here Rebecca even wants to be princess and rule Dressrosa at all. I can't see it. She hasn't given any indication of even caring about Dressrosa, she wants to beat Doflamingo so she can live with Toy Soldier, and that's it. Dressrosa doesn't even come into the equation.

    Way to simplify things. What about her gladiator buddies she's trying to save? She gives an impression of someone who is enduring everything for a chance to save her land. Remember this Soldier guy, who raised her and who is just talking how Dofla fucked up Riku in this last chapter? Don't you think he might have made Rebecca completely aware of past events? Especially since her only goal is to take down Dofla.

    And if she doesn't know she's a princess, then she's really a special kind of retarded - http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/721/20

    Yeah no, her only desire she has expressed so far is to live with Toy Soldier. Nowhere has she given ANY, not even the slightest, indication that she's fighting for Dressrosa. She fights for herself, for her own chance of happiness with Toy Soldier. Anything else is pure speculation on your part.

    Also, given how dangerous it was to be related to Riku, you don't think Toy Soldier would have thought it wise NOT to tell this to a young child who may reveal her lineage by accident to a populace that hates said lineage? We haven't been given any indication that Rebecca's even aware of her relationship to Riku before she wound up as a gladiator. Remember how she and her mother didn't live at the palace but in a small house somewhere in Dressrosa? Why would that be? It's clear Rebecca didn't live the princess life before Doflamingo came to Dressrosa. We aren't even sure what exactly Toy Soldier's relationship to Riku is. Is Rebecca related to Riku via Toy Soldier or via her mother? We don't know. Alson, despite knowing of her lineage now, she didn't give any sign of recognising Ricky, even if just him feeling or his voice sounding familiar as her grandfather? But nope, nothing. She clearly didn't know him.

    So no, her not knowing wouldn't be her being a retard, it would make sense given the circumstances she grew up with and what we know so far of her childhood. It's very possible that she learned of her lineage simply by the jeering of the masses in the coloseum, but not before that. Her entire life, after her mother died, was centered around Toy Soldier. That was made very clear. Rebecca fights for him, that she said so herself. Never, not even once, has she said "I wanna fight to make Dressrosa a better place!", not even given the indication that she was interested in that! If she did, it'd like to be shown where. Perhaps my memory is failing me. I tend to doubt it, though.
