Yes, Yamato will join the Straw Hats in the future. There have been hints throughout the arc that suggest she will become a member. Yamato has been on the island for the past 20 years and is feeling frustrated and eager to leave.
In future Yamato will embark on a new adventure with the Straw Hats, and together, they might journey to Laugh Tale to complete the missing pages of Oden’s diary. Joining the crew would allow Yamato to start a fresh chapter in her life and leave Wano behind for new horizons.
Why Yamato Didn’t Join The Straw Hat Pirates, Explained
Yamato, the guardian deity of Wano and self-proclaimed Oden, had the desire to explore the world and break free from the island’s constraints. After being freed by Luffy during the events of the Wano country arc, Yamato expressed a strong intention to join the Straw Hat crew. However, in the end, Yamato decided to stay in Wano, inspired by the journey of the legendary Oden. The main reason for this decision was to follow in Oden’s footsteps and explore Wano before setting sail with the Straw Hats.
Another factor that influenced Yamato’s choice was she is the guardian deity of Wano. Yamato’s current priority is to protect Momo and others in the country. Therefore, she will not join the Straw Hat crew at this moment. However, there are strong indications that once she sheds her role as the guardian deity and takes on the persona of Oden, she will definitely join the crew
Why Yamato wants to join Straw Hats?
Yamato always had been a character who was imprisoned. Now as the story progressed and we saw her flashback we came to know her dream After meeting Ace she always wanted to be a part of Ace’s crew and travel through the Grand Line. However, Ace’s death made her suffer a lot. Since then she had been waiting for Luffy, the kid brother who was supposed to be the king of the pirates and the strongest pirate of that era.
Now after a long time, she meets him. Her hidden dream of traveling again strived for her. Now, she wants to be a part of Luffy’s crew. The chapter ended in a way that hints toward another Vivi situation. So there is still a chance left that Yamato might be left. So the fan base is quite puzzled by this cliffhanger.
Soon in the next chapter, this might be the main focus as Yamato joins the straw hats and has her first bounty as part of Luffy’s crew.
Yamato is the child of Kaidou, originally born as Kaidou’s daughter and raised to be his successor. However, Yamato developed a deep admiration for the legendary samurai, Kozuki Oden. In honor of Oden, Yamato decided to take on his identity, impersonating him and presenting as Kaidou’s son. This choice has led to conflicts with Kaidou, resulting in Yamato spending much of their life imprisoned on Onigashima.
During Yamato’s time on the island, she formed a friendship with Portgas D. Ace, and upon learning of Ace’s death, eagerly awaited the arrival of his sworn brother, Monkey D. Luffy. Throughout the Wano Country War Arc, Yamato becomes a significant ally of the Straw Hat Pirates, playing a crucial role in the events unfolding in Wano.
