Quotes[edit | edit source]
- "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.) (can sometimes be said by Party Girl)
- "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!"
- "And then Unit 492-8 said, "Who do you think I am, Unit 472-6?" HA HA HA" (A Cyborg quote, a glitch in the mobile version)
If the player is female/Any gender
- "[Name of Player], Ye be one o' the finest lookin' lassies this here captain's seen in many a fortnight!"
During a Party
- "After all that cake, you might have to call me White Beard for a while."
Notes[edit | edit source]
- In the housing menu, he has a description saying "I think he lost his boat".
- The pirate looks exactly like the Pirate Captain in the Pirate Invasion.
- Like the Steampunker, the pirate's spawn requirements do not necessarily require the world to be in Hardmode, though you will need to have at least one other Hardmode world to get the necessary item to summon the pirate invasion.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Many of the Pirate's possible names allude to historical captains- Edward "Blackbeard" Teach, Oruç "Redbeard" Reis David as in Davy Jones, Captain Henry Morgan, and the illustrious James T. Kirk are all paid homage through the Pirate, though the "pirate" status of many of these figures is contested to this day.
