Bonney’s potential as a personality needs to be on par with at the very least certainly one of her friends. To work out how in style she might turn into, it is essential to contemplate how everybody else has fared on this division.
At the highest of the totem pole are Luffy and Zoro. As members of the primary forged, they’ve the best quantity of characterization within the story by far; the remainder of the Worst Generation can hardly scratch them on this regard. Even if Bonney have been to in some way turn into a Straw Hat herself, it is unlikely that she’d ever come near their degree of recognition.
As far as a supporting forged goes, Trafalgar Law makes for a significantly better gold customary for the Worst Generation. Next to Luffy and Zoro, he is had probably the most time for followers to get to know and love him; his persona, backstory, and character arc have all been totally explored because the Straw Hats entered the New World. At the peak of his recognition, he was recurrently featured in merchandise together with the likes of Luffy, Chopper, and even Ace. In a really perfect world, the Worst Generation would all attain this degree of recognition by the top of the sequence.
Just under Law are a pair extra Worst Generation Members who might be contenders for his degree of recognition. Eustass Kid has been introduced as somebody who can stand on equal footing with the likes of Law and Luffy; he obtained some characterization in Wano, however his actual second to shine might be but to return. Blackbeard has lengthy been arrange as certainly one of Luffy’s final enemies; by the top of the sequence, he is prone to utterly usurp each Kid and Law by his notoriety. Killer might additionally turn into extra in style by his connection to Kid, not that he’d essentially be at his captain’s degree.

A mid-level character among the many Worst Generation can be somebody like Capone Bege. He could have had a giant position to play within the Whole Cake Island Arc, however he did not go away a lot of an impression past this. It’s additionally troublesome to think about him figuring again into the story in a significant manner; he definitely would not look like he’d be a rival for Luffy within the seek for One Piece like Kid, Law, or Blackbeard are. He is likely to be preferred by some readers, however he isn’t prone to turn into a fan favourite.
Below Bege are the likes of Scratchmen Apoo, Basil Hawkins, and X Drake. It’s definitely troublesome to root for traitors like these three, particularly Apoo and Hawkins. Drake, nonetheless, continues to be respectable sufficient in his morals and convictions to probably earn some respect; moreover, he is a member of the mysterious SWORD, so he ought to ultimately get extra probabilities to show himself. For now, nonetheless, these characters have not performed sufficient good issues within the story to warrant a following.
As for Bonney herself, she’s been holding a reasonably low profile. Most of what she’s been proven doing within the sequence to date has concerned reacting to what different members of the Worst Generation have performed. This upcoming arc might be meant to be the place she really exhibits what she’s fabricated from.
Assuming Bonney has a big position to play within the subsequent arc, she might find yourself someplace between Kid and Bege when it comes to recognition; she may even rank greater than Killer. It all will depend on what her position within the arc might be and the way large of an affect she’ll have on the story going ahead.
