What is your favorite non-Straw Hat female in the One Piece world and why?
Because I like her personality
Nawh, I really think her design is badass and I hope to see her more in the story!
See... her design and her personality are why I wanted to cosplay her! She’s so awesome!! And definitely super high on my list.

If I'm giving a plot based answer, the mother figures like Bellemere and Nico Olivia take the cake because of the emotional impact in just a few chapters.
More good stuff right there! Hard to argue with those and, again, those designs were nothing to shake a stick at either. Bellemere is one of my favorites.
That being said, Komurasaki kind of has a special place in my heart. I know she’s really the Kozuki girl and all that but the character design and the way she antagonized Orochi still makes me all a flutter.
Boa Hancock is actually a good example of trauma bonding and unhealthy relationship patterns. The lengths to which she’s willing to go to support her feelings for the first kindness and decency she’s received from a male is unhealthy in the extreme. The fact that she’s incapable of distinguishing healthy interactions and subsumed her normal protective instincts and behaviors so entirely in such an utter about face when dealt the simplest of basic human kindness shows how utterly broken she was and easy to manipulate. The idea that strong women love by moving heaven and earth, bending over backwards to do anything for their partners is actually a bit toxic—especially in this circumstance where there’s an unrequited love by an abuse survivor.
I’m not refuting anything that you’ve brought up. I just thought that I’d make a few points that came to mind on the topic. ^_^
