There are a few official positions that are in the series that arent occupied in the SH crew

  • 2nd Mate
Cabaji of Buggy's crew and Ideaman from the Kreig Pirates are two that come to mind immediately. They are 2nd in command after the Vice Captain, another name for this position is chief of Staff outside of pirate crews
  • Vice Captain
Some may argue that Zoro is the Vice Captain of the SH crew and i agree, but officially there is no one who has this position, but till Zoro is OFFICIALLY recognized in this position, it is vacant
  • Combatant Crewman
This is the position that Zoro currently occupies as the Fighter/Swordsman but if/once Zoro is officially the Vice Captain this position will be open, the only other person that we've seen to have this position is Killer from Kid's crew
  • Ship Guard
only been one crew that have had this and thats Captain Kuro's crew, the Nyaban Brothers, their main job is guarding the ship when docked or just in general
  • Cabin Boy/Apprentice
Shanks and Buggy on Roger's crew, Kaido on the Rocks and Marco in the Whitebeard crew
  • Assassin
Daz Bonez and Hyouzou on the fishman pirates, specialize in moving in and taking out specific targets
  • Advisor
the only person to have this position is Vito on Capone's crew and he gives advise to the captain when it seems it needed (think this is pretty much the vice captain's role or it only exists in crews where the captain doesnt value the crew's opinion)
  • Earner
Someone on the crew who sole job is to earn money or find jobs to make money for the crew (Ace invited Isuka to be an Earner as a bounty hunter in the Ace novel)


Honestly none of these positions are essential but this far in the series the new members are pretty much going join for story purposes or powerhouses to add to the battle strength so whoever joins after this arc might fall in one of these positions

Replace Tama with Momonosuke and drop Carrot with the return of Vivi and you got a solid lineup

Momonosuke has to stay and lead wano after this arc. I firmly believe the strawhats are going to have to rescue Vivi so she cant really join anytime soon.

Not Tama.
Don't get the obsession with Tama.
Tama wants to follow in Ace's footsteps and has a really useful devil fruit. Plus the cabin boy/girl role on the ship suits her.

This is my Crew Prediction come the end of Wano or the next transition arc
I think Vivi will make her way to the crew following the events of the reverie and possibly Cobra's death and her being a wanted criminal
Momonosuke travels as the apprentice of the crew to follow in his father steps to learn what its like to travel the world to be a better Shogun for his people (like his father)

And Though imo there isnt much backing for her, i think and want yamato to come along (though i have seen scenarios that seem more interesting)

I'm going to :catpuke: if that's going to happen. They have duties in their respective kingdoms so NO. They are more like Alliance-members plotwise.

Yamato has to join SH crew. He would fit so perfectly like for real
And make her/him do the poses, she/he got on your profile pics, like for real!

Luffy and the other members will certainly have all the justifications to reject Tama from joining. She is young, she doesn't have any value added to the crew, she has a purpose in Wano that is yet to be fulfilled - helping the people get back on their feet after the war, server the Shogun, etc. Plus.... Yamato shared the same dream with her, and that's a reason why Oda introduced someone who had also encountered Ace so that it will be justified why her dream will be passed on to someone who is more worthy and capable of being a pirate.

Well, lets look at pattern, not counting Vivi sinces he's at least for now is an honorary member, like jinbei was until recently.
East Blue:
  1. Male - Zoro
  2. Female - Name
  3. Male - Usopp
  4. Male - Sanji
Paradise:
  1. Male - Chopper
  2. Female - Robin
  3. Male - Franky
  4. Male - Brook
New World:
  1. Male - Jinbei
  2. Female -
  3. Male -
  4. Male -
Yamato can't be the second new world, since he's male. Could be 3 or 4 though.

Eh but Yamato is biologically female. So i think that still count him as one.. but considering he's male as Luffy branded him and as he brand herself, that only means that Carrot finds her slot as the NW female. Althouth, this ia not yet confirmed, she's been with the crew for 3 decent arcs and have done pretty much more exposure than Jimbei and vivi combined. I have my bets that she'd be later on confirmed at the end of the arc.
and if we go by the NW pattern, I bet after Yamato as.male aka Yama-o, we are only looking for a giant to complete the lineup.

How would a giant be able to fit onto the Sunny? It's not a very big ship lol

I don't hold much of it for the new World. It was a nice gimmick for the Grand line, but the story is going to come to an end very soon. I think, with Yamato and perhaps Carrot we will be completed.

I honestly think that this pattern is still the most reasonable and true to nature so far. So I think that an additional male will still make sense. I mean, in terms of number, the crew is still undermanned as compared to many other crews and it will only make sense if Luffy's desire to at least 10 mates is just.

I think it's just the people seeing patterns, where there are none... Putting Nami 2. is questionable and many thoughts happened until Strawhats joined, as for example even Zoro was not originally planned to be a Strawhat...

You're right, but those patterns and headcannons are what people use and prepare to draft their theories and speculations to something. And like I have said, amongst many other patters, the above cited one is still stands as the most logical and apparent way to conclude who the next one will be.

Yamato's a woman so she counts. She's a strong Oden fan and wants to emulate him. This is different from say Kiku openly saying she's a woman at heart.

I think Arthur's analysis of it is pretty good, and you have to remember that pronouns aren't used the same way in japanese as english, that's why often characters whose genders were ambigous were mistranslated. I still remember for example Deidara from naruto being referred to as a female. Regardless, this is hardly the thread for this discussion lol
