Yamato is the typical strawhat recruit. she has a sad past , she has her dream , and she has her quirks as well.
and she was a friend of Ace so I see her would like to take a revenge on BB on his behalf just like Luffy, and we know sooner or later the strawhats will fight the BBPs

I was wondering if the strawhat grand fleet members were supposed to mirror the strawhats crew there are many similarities.
Barto has green hair like Zoro and has an ability that makes him basically can tank any attack.
Cavandish is a prince and blond just like Sanji and he damn fast just like Sanji.
Sai has a particular martial art that create shock waves just like Jinbe
Ideo has a explosives attacks just like Franky

I have the feeling that the grand fleet will be fighting alongside the straw hats in their fight against the BB pirates as each BB pirate is a captain of his own ship so theres gonna have to be a lot of fodder controlv
 
So, in episdoe 982, I noticed that Yamato's first appearance in the anime was storyboarded as a direct parallel to Oden's running and the delaying of Jinbe's toast for joining the crew. I edited them together here:
This was a bit nebulous, as I was connecting the two scenes based on how they were presented... but then in episode 990, they reused the running scene from before the toast to lead directly into Yamato running through the castle. Again, edited together:
You can obviously just say that this is spice added by the Toei, and that nothing in the anime matters, which is fair. However, while putting the second video together, I noticed the following: Jinbe's toast is delayed in Chapter 977. Luffy says "Let's do it with them! The feast and the toast!" This chapter is also the very first time Yamato is mentioned, with Kaido saying "My son should make an appearance! It's a feast!" Viz translates Luffy's line as "party", but in both cases it's 宴/うたげ, or feast/banquet. This seems like pretty obvious foreshadowing to me.

I wouldn't put to much stock into this to be honest. It seems like a bit of a stretch.
 
what i didn't like with jinbe
carrot & yamato if they joined.

is how they are not developed with most of the SHs .
jinbe ( only with nami sanji )
carrot (only with chooper nami sanji brook)

yamato with no one yet.
 
Interesting theory that's been going around about Momotaro. This reddit post brings it all together. I originally thought that Marco was the pheasant but based on his condition and essentially bowing out in recent chapters I'd been having a lot of doubts. Hiyori makes a ton of sense. Her playing a role in the final battle was foreshadowed, and if she's gonna do something then it should be worthwhile. If she really does have a mythical bird fruit then that will seal the deal.

You'd have Luffy fighting alongside:

Hiyori, daughter of Oden and the princess of Wano,
Yamao, daughter of Kaido and the princess of Onigashima
Momo, son of Oden + Kaido's DNA and is the prince of Wano

You can see based on her early designs that Oda also considered the typical OP princess appearance for Yamao.

The Amaterasu/Susanoo/Tsukuyomi parallels seem very logical and the other parallels to Alabastan guardian deities are particularly interesting. Pell/Chaka - Hiyori/Yamao

If Hiyori really is the pheasant then all this further links Yamao to Wano as being a part of a guardian trio of Wano royals fighting along the MC to free their country. This would be Oda forming yet another new dynamic between Yamao and Wano characters, whilst still having absolutely nothing with the straw hats.

We've seen this happen time and time again in OP and we should know by now that the princesses never actually join the crew in the end. Also notable that while Luffy is similarly like a guardian deity, his is based on a wisdom king and acts as the guardian to the world and travels around saving many different nations, whilst Yamao's is Oguchi no Makami a deity that's specifically the guardian of Wano.

Oda always has the future nakama interact with the crew well before they join but he gives each future straw hat a couple of members whom they're closer to before they join.

Chopper: Nami and Sanji
Robin: No one initially for narrative reasons but at EL she had Franky and Usopp
Franky: Robin and Usopp
Brook: Franky and Zoro
Jinbe: Nami and Sanji
Carrot?? : Nami and Chopper
