@FenixmMarco The Harpy Lady from Punk Hazard, stabbed to death accidentally by CC. A lot of people wanted her to join because she seemed nice and was one of the most powerful females seen yet in One piece.
True, but you don't really believe Scotch is going to simply allow them to go unpunished at the end of this, do you?

Alas, it has thus far not been meant to be.
^ i wonder how big SH crew would be, if Jinbe joined, there would be 4 power houses.
if Teach is the final villain for him then it 10 vs 10.
but we have so many characters coming, and quite a few will attract luffy.
Rebecca with Ace's DF would be a good addition to the strawhat crew, would be fun to see Sanji swoon over her. However I don't think it'll happen. If and when Doflamingo is defeated she'll stay on Dressrosa to protect it or maybe even rule it. I definitely think Luffy will want her to have Ace's DF but I just hope there'll be enough might leftover on Dressrosa after Luffy's crew leaves because that ratbastard Blackbeard could very easily come to that island later on with his whole crew and hunt down whoever has the mera mera no mi. Even if there are other logia of comparable power and quality that he can hunt for this one would upset Luffy the most when his crew inevitably battles Luffy's.
@aggeroff Oh her yeah now I remember her, if I forgot about her means she isn't viable for the crew :P Next SH will stand out I'm sure of it. Most likely a female is joining as well. I don't think we are getting someone this arc.
yeah i find it hopeful and interesting that all the possible new crew members have a crew or something like that with them already. ie jinbe has sun pirates/merflok, rebecca has the gladiator prisoners, miyn has his grandon's happousi army, bartolomeo is a slum lord/probable captain in his own right, law another guy in an alliance with luffy, etc.
odas not going for simple folk any more, hes going for leaders to be in luffy's armada!
captain luffy? no way commodore luffy
With the exception of Zoro and Chopper, all the Straw Hat's where leaders before they joined Luffy.

Vivi(honorable mention): Numbered officer of Baroque Works and Acting Ruler of Alabasta
And with all of them except Zoro and Chopper, they were either forced out of their group(Sanji, Franky) or their group disbanded(Nami, Usopp, Robin, Franky(his is both), Brook). Plus all of them can be considered outcasts.
^ the same goes to Jinbe, sun pirates is no more, it's left only hatchan. he will joined after he is ready.
the same possibility goes to violet (being their group disbanded) and bartolomeo (joined with his own free will).
i guess teach would made some addition to his crew, so no more 10 vs 10, but 12 vs 12.
Luffy vs teach
Zorro vs shiryuu
Sanji vs burgess
Ussopp vs auger
Jinbe vs san juan
Franky vs pizzaro
Chopper vs Doc Q
Nami vs laffitte
Robin vs catarina
Brook vs vasco
Bartolomeo vs ????
Violet vs ????
btw, Teach is heard discussing the possibility of recruiting Kuzan to join their crew with Jesus Burgess via Den Den Mushi, to which Burgess asserted that Aokiji could not be trusted.
There is no way Bartolomeo or Violet are joining, and let's not start with Jinbe. Bartolomeo is going to go insane (more so than he already is) when Luffy fails to live up to his expectations/give him attention. Classic serial killer-stalker mentality of "if I can't have him/her, then no one can." He's going to be crushed by Luffy, which very well may reinstate his passion towards him. But never going to join. As for Violet I have a suspicion that she'll turn out like the mermaids on FI, infatuated by Sanji but ultimately remain on Dressrosa. I actually see her through some crazy occurrence stabbing Sanji in the back, not only figuratively, and him still being in love with her. Again, however, she won't join.
