    While the majority, all characters but the strawhats, has not. We got so many characters like that even in this arc: Cavendish, Bartolomeo or Don Chinjao, any named plot important character could potentially join, but that's beside the point.

    Alright. Just answer me this: How did the other members of the crew stick out differently than Rebecca before Luffy recruited them?

    I would say that it is they filled a position in the crew. Now that no position need has been expressed the choice is less obvious.

    But there are other hints that make a good candidate, a quirky personality, an original fighting style. So far Rebecca does not seem to fill this.

    At least ten members (Jinbei could make up the last member), but he never said he wanted Rebecca. Luffy also stated what kind of roles he wanted on his crew, and I think he fulfilled all of them and some extras. He got his musician, cook, navigator, sniper, shipwright, protector/supporting fighter, doctor, a known "criminal," and likely one of the shichibukai. What role would Rebecca fill? I honestly see Bartomoleo or even Bellamy joining more than Rebecca.

    Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama... - 2nd edition

    Well, as for now I don't see Rebecca joining for many reasons:
    1. She is quite weak as of now. Unless she shows something special, she just doesn't fit. Luffy already has Nami and Usopp who are quite weak even for Grand Line standards and wouldn't have survived in a serious fight without being a part of the crew. So to get another one like this... It just doesn't feel necessary.
    2. I don't feel it would be good for Luffy to give her his brother's DF out of the blue. I feel it would be great if he gives it to someone who joins the crew. At the same time for Rebecca to join just because Luffy gives her DF would be strange, since without it she seems quite weak.
    3. After the last chapter we know that she is Dressrosa's princess, so after defeating Dofla she will become a part of the country's government or maybe will become a new queen if Toy Soldier isn't her father or grandfather. So I don't think such a person would go with Luffy, because it will endanger the country.

    At the same time it would be funny to see if Luffy will want to make a dwarf join his crew.

    hmmm this is a very good point. But what make you think that BB crew won't grow larger ? We know that Aokiji was somehow recruited, so why no others ?

    Btw trying to match the members of each crew would be a nice way to guess who would join the SH next. I have been trying, but couldn't relate every members. Here's my list:
    Luffy/BB
    Zorro/Shyriu
    Sanji/Jesus Burgess
    Usopp/Van Augur
    Nami/Catarina Devon ?
    Brook/Laffitte ?
    Choper/ doc Q ?
    Franky /Sanjuan Wolf
    Robin/?
    Jinbei/??/Avalo Pizarro ?/Vasco Shot

    Re: The Search for Straw Hat's New Nakama... - 2nd edition

    For now I will subscribe to the idea that luffy's voyage in the new world won't be about crewmembers but rather it will be about allies. Basically we won't see random people joining him anymore, rather we will see him getting dangerous allied crews to fight for him at his command. Fishman island will be the first to bare the strawhat flag proudly when the time comes and that comes with the allegiance of jinbe and the fishman pirates. Then we have all the allies luffy is making in the tournament. Chinjao himself is a damn powerful ally and with his head back he is now more dangerous that he was before. And now the same chinjao wants to put his army at the service of luffy which is a HUGE development as now luffy has an army to use as he damn pleases. Bartholomeo is pretty strong himself but more important is the fact that he was once a mafia kingping. He is friends with law which is quite significant in itself and once shit gets real at the tournament he is bound to make even more allies. Luffy might walk out of the current arc with just about enough strength to make a yonko think twice about messing with him. It won't be just luffy and the 8 brats, it will be luffy with his actual damn powerful allies willing to give up every bit of blood they have for him. The rest of the new world will likely be like that. Kinemon will be a link to the samurai. If the samurai break their neutrality and start wearing the strawhat flag then even the yonko themselves are likely to shit their pants, the development alone might put luffy on par with the yonko as far as influence goes.

    Right now I can only see kinemon permanently joining the crew but that depends on what exactly mononosuke really is.

    Not sure this is a new world specificity, I always thought the people Luffy have met during his journey would reappear in the last arcs to help him.

    First off, he meant ten members not counting himself. Second, there are lots of other roles on the ship that need fulfillment. I don't know what they are, but there are usually more members on a crew than what Luffy has.

    When you write that there are lots of roles to be filled, but can't name a single position, your argument starts to sounds untrue.^^

    A helmsmen [hopefully Jinbe]
    a dancer [who's not Violet, she wants to see Doffy lose too, so she likely will remain on DR]
    a cabin boy[Sanji seems to be in this position for the women for a long time now haha]
    a rigger[Zoro and others do this all the time]
    a powder monkey[not needed on the ship, Franky does all that]
    a swabbie[no one has to specially invited for this]

    I think this is a very common theory on how things will turn out at the end of the manga or else showing all those people in the Time Skip cover stories would be kind of a waste, showing how they have developed when they won't appear again.

    Thank you for providing a list. I knew there were other positions, but I didn't know what.

    Nami and Usopp are weak, but they survived because of their own abilities. Usopp has managed to persevere and find ways to win, as did Nami with their weapons and all. They contribute a lot combat-wise.

    I could see that happening, and a dwarf actually joining.

    I know that, but there are nine members already with possible ten if Jinbei joins. Or rather, I miscounted, and JInbei would be the 9th member. But what other roles are there? The Strawhats have not pointed out they needed someone to fulfill a role at this point. Luffy wanted Zoro on his team, so he got Zoro. They needed a navigator, which is a role Nami fulfilled. Usopp's sniping was useful, and Luffy invited him. They needed a cook, so Sanji came aboard. Chopper joined because he was a doctor and was needed, along with wanting to be with Luffy. Robin asked Luffy to join. Franky is a shipwright who knew how to build, repair, and keep ships in top shape, especially considering the shape of Going Merry. Brook is a musician, and he's strange with corny jokes that made Luffy want him to join.

    So far, they have gotten along just well with the current crew with no problem. Rebecca would have to offer a new or unique role where she'd contribute tremendously for her to be a part of the crew.

    Yes, Jinbe will be the 9th member. That means that at least one more will be recruited.

    Didn't you see Schabrak's last post? There are a few more positions to fill.
