Will They Join Soon? Anticipation Grows for Characters Who Didn’t Become Straw Hat Pirates in “One Piece”

One Piece

“Who will be the tenth?” Speculation abounds over the next member of the Straw Hat Pirates in “One Piece.” With Jinbei becoming the ninth member, the fan community was abuzz with predictions. However, there were characters who, despite strong indications, did not join. Will they eventually unite with the Straw Hat crew?

First, let’s consider Mr. 2 Bon Clay (Bentham), a character deeply admired for his empathy and popularity among fans. Initially an enemy as part of Crocodile’s Baroque Works, he develops a friendship with the Straw Hats during the events in Alabasta and Impel Down. His sacrifice for the crew, especially in Alabasta where he confronts Navy Rear Admiral Hina to aid their escape, is a memorable and often-discussed scene among fans. Although separated in Impel Down and not currently a crew member, fans hope for his return and potential joining.

Next is Princess Nefertari Vivi of the Alabasta Kingdom. She traveled with the Straw Hats for a time but chose her duties as a princess over joining them. Despite this, her emotional farewell and the crew’s display of the “mark of the comrades” led many fans to consider her an honorary member, with speculation about her future rejoining.

Lastly, we have Yamato from the Wano Country arc. Yamato expressed a wish to sail with the crew but chose to stay in Wano. Fans were disappointed but hold out hope for Yamato’s future involvement.

Throughout, the article emphasizes fan theories and expectations for these characters, reflecting the strong community engagement with the series.
