OK so Jewelry Bonney is my favorite OP character and my personal favorite to join the straw hat crew. With that said here is my Theory on her.
I believe that Bonney has a very traumatic past evolving the world government similar to Robin. I believe she knows something about the WG or is related to someone in the WG and something in the past caused her to flee. During her time on the run she was helped out by WB and this is why she was so devastated when he passed and vowed to kill Back Beard even though she was greatly out matched by him.
When Akainu comes to retrieve her from BB we see her hatred for him and it seems to be a deeper hatred than simply his role in WB's death and his words to her indicate he has know her for a very long time.
"Akainu coldly informed Bonney that he was truly frightened when she escaped from the World Government but was glad she was back under their control."
If a man such as Akainu fears Bonney she must be major threat to the WG however he choose to capture her rather than kill her Why is that? If she is that much of a threat and has escaped the WG before why not just kill her, but he doesn't do that and maybe its because he can't do that.
Now post time skip we get the the supernova timeskip picture and in that Bonney is cloaked by a hat and a coat pulled in a manner suggesting she is in hiding.
I believe given how her character is being setup over such a long period of time that she will be subject to a major arc in the future and that her crew interactions and ultimately the SH crew saving her will lead her to joining as the 3rd and final female crew member.
All of the Straw Hats have some sort of a painful past however Robin and Nami very traumatic pasts that only get resolved after joining with the SH crew. I believe that this will be true for Bonney as well. BUT BUT BUT Vivi, Shiriohoshi and Rebbeca are like that too. The main difference between them given what we know of Bonney is that Bonney doesn't have ties that keep her home. Bonney is already a pirate traveling the grand line, So if she was asked to join after her arc there would be no reason to refuse plus she would still be wanted by the WG. Also Luffy seems to be attracting people who are threats to the WG like Robin and Franky so Bonney would fit right in with them.
Well that's it for now I know its poorly written and needs improvement which I plan to do. Also let me know what you think of my theory and how I can improve it.
Well its not much of a theory so much as its obvious. The only bits your missing out on that everyone else is already theorizing is that her DF powers are possibly used to rejuvinate the 5 Elder Stars (Gorosei)...
Her powers seem quite a threat...
Apart from that the only other idea that might be the reason shes so dangerous is she might have information over one of the ancient weapons.
Would be a bit dull if she has the same setup like the other girls... some overly emotional traumatic childhood blah blah blah... Like seriously get over it, everyone has a hard life in OP! XD (Im just hoping for something... different)
I want Bonney to join as well I like the character… when I saw her in hiding I thought "maybe she will join", but we shall see… hope springs eternal :P
i think she's there for the gorosei too. but if she's really rejuvenating them, how old do you think the gorosei's really are? and how old is bonney really?
All of the female leads have similar back grounds even the ones who don't end up joining.
I like her too.
If someone tried to use her power that could be very very bad for pirates.
As BetaRule said they could use her to rejuvinate the 5 Elder Stars (Gorosei).
IMO they are probably strongest people there is.
What if there is some future arc where jewelry bonney turns the strawhats into older versions of themselves in their prime and we see them kicking all kinds of ass but they either choose to go back to their regular age or she dies and the power wears off
I actually love the idea of her joining the crew. However I am hoping she is more of a warrior then a strategist like Nami and Robin seem to be. I wouldn't mind Bonney being the female monster of the crew. Her devil fruit ability can't be her only technique. It's not much when faced with stronger opponents who being different in age could be a plus rather then a minus in battle, or simply opponents who an age change wouldn't effect them at all because they're just that strong.
As far as her back story is concerned all Straw-Hats have sad back stories however female characters seem to exceptionally tragic. I'm hoping Bonney has a not as tragic story as the other females. As well as us getting the story before she joins rather then her joining then later her past comes back to bite the rest of the crew in the ass the way both Robin and Nami's seemed to.
I think she's gonna apear in Reverie arc and want her to join like you said. Maybe we see Vivi too.
And vivi's role? Bonney can help in the ship in general like Zoro or something. She' s good infiltrating too, transforming herself into child or old woman.
When would that that major arc designated to her be? Right now it looks like dresrosa-Zou-WanoKuni/Yonkou. Also a new nakama should be there for a good part of the journey so she can't join too late. Now if she rejuvenated the Gorosei which she would tell or at least be shown to us as FB then it would spoil the surprise since many of us think they are end game material if they were rejuvenated.
If she knows something she shouldn't then why keep her alive?
Also to the rejuvenation thing. What if ever since the void century the gorosei get regularly rejuvenated by the current holder of Bonney's fruit?
