- This article is about the town NPC. For the enemies that spawn during the Pirate Invasion, see Pirates.
The Pirate is an NPC. If you have defeated a Pirate Invasion once and there is a vacant house, the Pirate will move in. This will even work in a non-hardmode world, provided you have a Pirate Map with you.
Once the Pirate has moved into a house, he will sell the following:
|Pirate Hat||5||Always available.|
|Pirate Shirt||5||Always available.|
|Pirate Pants||5||Always available.|
|Parrot Cracker||3 75||Must be in Ocean biome|
|Bunny Cannon||50||When Party Girl is present, world is in hardmode and one mech boss is defeated.|
The pirate can have the following names:
- Stay off me booty, ya scallywag!
- I'm no landlubber, but it's better to have lubbed and lost than never to have lubbed at all. (Reference to "It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all" from Alfred Tennyson's In Memoriam A.H.H.)
- YAR! Funny ye should be mentionin' parrots b'cause...um... What t'were we talkin' 'bout?
- "Yarr Blarr Harrdarr" (May be drunken speech)
- What in blazes are ye talkin' about? Moby Dick is mine!
- Yo ho ho and a bottle of....blinkroots!
If the player is female
- "[Name of Player], Ye be one o' the finest lookin' lassies this here captain's seen in many a fortnight!
