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. For other uses, see Pirate (disambiguation).

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.

On the Desktop Version Desktop version and Console Version Console version, he will defend himself using either a Gun or Cannon.

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.)
  • "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!" (Probably a reference to the fact that many potions require blinkroot to craft.)

When Tavernkeep is present:

  • "About time we gotta barkeep around here! Me rum was almost gone!"

If the player is femaleDesktop VersionConsole Version/Any genderMobile only.pngOld-gen console version3DS logo.svg:

  • "[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]

  • Console Version 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.
