One Piece Chapter 1059, “The Captain Kobby Incident”, ends with Amazon Lily being ravaged by invaders in search of to seize her. Blackbeard’s assault and incoming Marine assaults made it clear that staying on the island was not an choice; so long as she was there, her individuals could be in peril. She thought of remarrying Monkey D Luffy, which may imply that his next transfer can be to hunt him out within the New World. For some Hancock followers, this gave hope that she would ultimately develop into a member of the Straw Hat Pirates.
Nevertheless, this opportunity for Hancock to affix Luffy’s crew comes with some debate. There’s no denying that she could be an important asset, a well-developed character, one other lady for the crew, and somebody who’s drawn to Luffy. Nevertheless, if Vivi and Yamato have confirmed something, even all of these items put collectively don’t qualify somebody to develop into a Straw Hat. With that in thoughts, there’s most likely more purpose for Hancock to keep away from Luffy’s ship than to board.
1. She has an excessive amount of hassle getting together with others.
Aside from Luffy, Hancock doesn’t have shut sufficient ties with the remainder of the crew, and doesn’t want to create any. Two of them are feminine and subsequently potential love rivals. Six others are weak, impolite and filthy males. She would possibly take a liking to Chopper, however solely as a result of she sees him more as a pet than a person.
Hancock’s condescending angle is an issue for his integration into the crew typically. The Straw Hats are supposed to be a pleasant bunch who can get together with nearly anybody they meet on their travels. Even Sanji is aware of the best way to be pleasant with individuals who aren’t girls. Except Hancock critically evolves and turns into more open to others, it’s laborious to think about him happening adventures with the crew.
2. She seems an excessive amount of like Nico Robin
Being one other lady really performs towards Hancock’s potential Straw Hat standing. As a result of same-face syndrome among the many girls of One Piece, the Pirate Empress seems a bit an excessive amount of like archaeologist Nico Robin from the Straw Hats. Each are lovely girls with lengthy black hair, of comparable construct, and over six ft tall. To not point out Robin’s pores and skin shade and facial options which have develop into more generic over time.
Usually this isn’t a giant deal in One Piece, particularly for girls. Nevertheless, the Straw Hats have all the time had distinct and instantly identifiable appearances. It’s simple to acknowledge any of them when grouped collectively, even with the manga’s black and white shade scheme. If Hancock and Robin swapped outfits or each dressed the identical, readers of the manga would wish a second to determine which is which.
3. His pet snake will should be accounted for
Most individuals overlook that Hancock is an entire. In addition to the Kuja Pirates, she can also be hip-bound to her Weapon-Serpent, Salome. If Hancock is to be thought of a contender for the Straw Hat title, comparable pondering should be utilized to Salome.
Every member of the Straw Hats should have a powerful character. They should have a character, background, pursuits, and many others. properly outlined. Few of those components appear to be relevant to Salome.
Alternatively, the bond between Hancock and Salome could possibly be seen as much like the connection between Nami and Zeus. This fashion, the snake wouldn’t need to be overgrown as a result of its bond with a crew member. Nevertheless, whereas Zeus is compact and suits completely with Nami’s Clima-Tact, Salome is a large snake which may show tough to accommodate aboard the Thousand Sunny.
4. His romantic insanity for Luffy has no place aboard the Thousand Sunny
One Piece is primarily a shonen fight series. Which means many of the story focuses on motion and journey to enchantment to youthful audiences. To that end, the romance on this story has been saved to a naked minimal. The Straw Hats are unlikely to type a critical relationship till the very end of the series. In accordance with Eiichiro Oda, they’re married to journey.
Hancock would introduce an excessive amount of pointless romantic pressure among the many crew. In addition to Sanji lusting after her, she would most likely attempt to type a romantic rivalry with Nami and Nico Robin for Luffy. This could possibly be some kind of Juvia Lockser state of affairs the place she tries to be one of the best candidate for Luffy’s affection regardless that nobody is , not even Luffy. This might develop into his solely character trait.
5. She owes an excessive amount of to the Kuja Pirates
Hancock’s place inside the Kuja Pirates is probably the largest purpose that retains him from becoming a member of the Straw Hat Pirates, or some other crew for that matter. On the one hand, she is nearly irreplaceable as a frontrunner. The solely attainable replacements are her sisters and Shakky, who was not too long ago revealed to be a former Empress of Amazon Lily; nonetheless, it’s laborious to think about any of them filling the massive void if Hancock left. Even when she left Amazon Lily, her individuals wouldn’t be protected. The world authorities considers all of them to be pirates. Leaving would solely diminish their fight energy. If Hancock ever sails underneath Luffy’s flag, it could possibly be as a member of the Straw Hat Grand Fleet. So she may proceed to be the chief the Kuja Pirates want whereas pursuing her nice love. It’s an attention-grabbing compromise for everybody’s pursuits.
