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.
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.
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:
Nami/Catarina Devon ?
Choper/ doc Q ?
Franky /Sanjuan Wolf
Jinbei/??/Avalo Pizarro ?/Vasco Shot
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.

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 could see that happening, and a dwarf actually joining.Quote:
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.
Including captain and swabbie, there are 12 roles
