    Not everyone who the strawhats meet has what it takes to be in the crew.
    But when characters like Franky and Brook were introduced, it was very apparent that they would be joining, the only twist I feel was Robin joining after Alabasta.
    With all the talk about Carrot potentially joining as a full crew member soon, and with Jimbie's eventual return, I think it's a good time to ask what do you look for in a new Member of the Strawhat pirates?
    One of the big thinks I've noticed is when a female character enters the story people want them to join, even if other characters are not only better suited, but more developed and more interesting.
    We're 900 plus chapters into the story and at the point where characters need to either step up, or ship out.
    If the Strawhats do add one of two more characters what do we want from them?

    Nah kidding, I'm hoping they'll get someone a bit cunning and ruthless to balance out Jinbe's honourableness. Not that I totally dislike it (his honourableness) but it will get on my nerves so I want someone who will give me a break from it.

    A special capacity or knowledge. Something, when we'll see it, we'll all say "WE NEED THAT"

    It's very simple: an interest. If the character wants to travel with the Straw Hats, it will be a likely candidate. If not, it's absurd to even question it.

    A thirst for adventure or need to go out to sea to achieve a certain dream, chemistry with the crew and nothing/duty stopping said person from joining the crew and going out to sea.

    With regards to Carrot, she clearly has a thirst for adventure and has good chemistry with the crew, however, her dream is still unclear or maybe it is fulfilling Pedro's will and helping the strawhats in bringing a dawn to the world.

    A sad backstory, and a loved one who's dead. Apparently.

    Someone like Hibari from hitman reborn manga. Someone rude that operates by himself, that doesn't actually follow the lead of the captain and looks for strong opponents.

    Relationship with Luffy, relevance to the story, unique design, a dream to be accomplished on the crew, tragic backstory.

    Be accepted by Zoro.

    If it was just for Luffy now we would have a carefreee Usopp and maybe others, also a pletora of Thriller bark random dudes and the likes (homies?).

    Seriously at this point of the story I'm not even sure we will have new members. Nine is a perfect number, maybe Jinbe the tenth also his role as helmsman is nailed for the SH, yet I think there is the chance we are done there. Oda will keep teasing us with temporary members and maybe with Jinbe being on the point of joining another 2 or 3 times. Anyway note that in pre time skip we had somebody join every 1-2 arcs(?) and in a real time span of some years at best. Now how many years have passed since Brook joined?

    Also this could be left as a secret card if the franchise starts to sink.
