The Straw Hats are a notorious pirate crew led by One Piece’s main protagonist, Monkey D. Luffy. The crew consists of powerful swashbucklers who all have bounties on their heads, earned through both noble — and not so noble — deeds.

This crew is known for enlisting bizarre members from all across the world, each with their own talents and strengths. Because of this, there are many characters across anime series who would fit in extraordinarily well with Luffy and the other members of the Straw Hat Crew, if given the chance.
10 Narancia Ghirga Is Prone To Slacking Off And Violent Outbursts Like Luffy (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
Narancia Ghirga, a member of Team Bucciarati from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, is an odd mixture of rough and tough, and childish and immature. Since he never got a proper education, he’s not book-smart. However, when it comes to fighting, his skills are nothing short of extraordinary. In some ways, he is much like Luffy.
Prone to random outbursts, childlike behavior, and the most likely to slack off, Narancia would fit in very well among the Straw Hat Crew.
9 Baki Hanma Has A Dark Background And Is Willing To Fight For His Loved Ones (Baki The Grappler)
Known as the Champion of the Underground Arena, the main protagonist in Baki the Grappler franchise Baki Hanma is an amazing fighter. Baki trains incredibly hard in order to defeat his father, called the strongest man in the world, but otherwise, he is very laidback and carefree.
He’s intelligent, strong-willed, and because of his dark background, he will do anything for those that he loves and cherishes — a common trait within the Straw Hat Crew.
8 Alucard Is A Formidable Opponent And His Blood Manipulation Abilities Would Make Him Another Bizarre Addition To The Crew (Hellsing)
As the greatest warrior of the Hellsing Organization and the most powerful vampire alive, Alucard is the type that anyone would want on their side. He’s a twisted and ferocious fighter, but underneath this, there’s a side of him that loves and cherishes those he holds dear.

Alucard is a formidable opponent with superhuman strength, speed, endurance, and perception, and his bizarre blood manipulation abilities would make him an interesting member of the Straw Hat Crew, sure to obtain a hefty bounty in no time at all.
7 Ichigo Kurosaki Has An Odd Sense Of Honor And Many Traits Similar To The Strongest Members Of The Crew (Bleach)
Ichigo is the type of character who would fit in with the Straw Hat Crew almost immediately. He’s impulsive, rash, strong-willed, and ridiculously strong, so he’d get along well with the toughest fighters in the crew. His battle sense is also superb, but he has an odd sense of honor as he believes in exacting revenge fairly and legitimately.
Like the Straw Hat Pirates, Ichigo cares deeply for those he’s close with and will do anything to help them to the point that he feels guilty, depressed, and hates himself when he loses a fight or lets his friends down.
6 Meliodas Shares Many Qualities With The Straw Hat Pirates — And Has A Large Collection Of Alcohol (The Seven Deadly Sins)
Meliodas, the Sin of Wrath, is the protagonist of The Seven Deadly Sins series and the captain of the titular unit. He’s known for his courage and his blunt attitude, but he believes in justice and helping those in need. Many of these traits are common within the members of the Straw Hat Crew.
He also owns the Boar Hat, a traveling bar where he likes to drink and enjoy himself. As a bar owner, Meliodas has access to a broad range of alcohol, which would surely please the members of the Straw Hat Crew.
5 Minoru Mineta Is An Oddball With An Even More Bizarre Quirk (My Hero Academia)
Seeing as the Straw Hat Crew are known for having some of the most bizarre members, someone like Minoru Mineta would be a perfect fit. Mineta is often doing things that embarrass his classmates and himself and is regarded as quite weird by almost everyone.

What makes this character so interesting is his Quirk, called Pop Off. This superhuman ability allows him to detach the balls from his head, which can stick to any surface, for offensive and defensive use. He’s an unusual character who would make for an interesting member of the Straw Hat Crew.
4 Natsu Dragneel Has Unique Dragon Slayer Magic And Relies On Brute Strength And Friendship To Succeed (Fairy Tail)
Natsu Dragneel is a mage and one of the five Dragon Slayers that were sent to the future to defeat the Dragon King. Like many members of the Straw Hat Crew, Natsu is rash, reckless, and carefree. He loves the members of his guild and treats them like family.
His strength of character and willingness to do what’s right sometimes comes at the cost of destroying towns and villages, which is why Natsu is disliked by the Magic Council in Fairy Tail and why he would earn himself a respectably hefty bounty in the world of One Piece.
3 Asta Is An Anti-Magic User With A Personality Akin To Many Members Of The Straw Hat Pirates (Black Clover)
As he has no mana and is therefore unable to wield magic, Asta is one of the most unique and interesting characters in the Black Clover universe. He is also demon-possessed, which allows him to use Anti Magic and handle swords with various abilities.
Given his past, Asta grew to be tenacious, strong, and brave, despite not having any magic. With his brash and cheerful attitude, he’d make for a wonderful member of the Straw Hat Crew and would fit right in with his unique abilities and brute strength.
2 Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo Is A Contradictory Mesh Of Personality Traits And Has An Interesting Ability That Would Benefit The Crew (Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo)
Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo, protagonist of his self-named series, is an unusual character with a personality that’s almost a combination of every member of the Straw Hat Crew. He can be serious, stern, and unpredictable, but he can also be sensitive and eccentric.
He is also incredibly powerful and boasts several unique abilities. One of these is Hajike, which he can use to take on any form he can think of. Having such an ability would surely earn him a sizable bounty, considering the shenanigans that the Straw Hat Crew get up to.
1 Majin Buu Is A Powerful Pink Genie-Like Being From Outer Space (Dragon Ball)
If the Straw Hat Crew is filled with unusual and bizarre characters from across the world, then Majin Buu would make a wonderful addition. With his large, pink, genie-like appearance, and the fact that he’s from outer space, he would definitely be one of the strangest crewmates aboard.
Majin Buu is friendly, curious, adventurous, and very lazy. But he is powerful and has a body that severely reduces the damage that he takes; due to this flexibility, he can dodge a lot of attacks.
