This is a Town NPC. A House may be required in order for it to appear.
This article is about the town NPC. For the enemies that spawn during the Pirate Invasion, see Pirates.

The Pirate is a Hardmode NPC that appears once at least one Pirate Invasion has been defeated and a vacant house is available. He also has exactly the same texture as the pirate captain, an enemy from the Pirate Invasion.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Console only.png 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.
  • The Name Bullywort is a reference to the game BULLY from Rockstar Games it is the school of Jimmy Hopkins(Protagonist)The Bullworth.
  • The name Jack may be a reference to Jack Sparrow from the pirates of the Carribean movies.
