Yamato is easily one of the biggest new characters introduced to One Piece thanks to the Wano Arc. With the offspring of Kaido disobeying their father and throwing their allegiance behind Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates, one cosplayer has brought the Wano resident to life using spot-on Cosplay. One Piece's Final Arc is underway in the pages of the Shonen's manga and fans should expect Yamato to play a major role in the final journey of the Straw Hats.
Currently, the War For Wano has seen Yamato teaming up with Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates, attempting to not only defeat the Beast Pirates but also save the civilians of Wano Country who have been dragged into the titanic tussle. While the battle between the Straw Hats and the Beast Pirates has been heating up, the anime adaptation is planning to take a break from the proceedings to instead focus on an earlier tale that explores the relationship between Monkey and Uta, the daughter of Red-Haired Shanks who will be introduced in the fifteenth film of the franchise, One Piece: Red.
Instagram Cosplayer Shika Rakumi shared this brand new take on Yamato, who has easily become one of the biggest fan-favorites to arrive as a result of the Wano Arc as the offspring of Kaido has rebelled against their father while also joining Luffy on his journey to become the next king of the pirates:
Though Yamato has joined the Straw Hat Pirates following the conclusion of the War For Wano Arc, their presence in the fifteenth film of the franchise, One Piece: Red, is still a mystery as the Wano resident has yet to appear in any marketing material. With Yamato joining forces with the Straw Hats, it appears as though the brawler will have around three years of journeys left to experience as Eiichiro Oda confirmed that he was seeking to use that much amount of time for the final arc of the series. It will definitely be interesting to see the effect that Yamato has on the Straw Hats and whether or not the warrior from Wano will be the last member to join Luffy's crew.
