Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Old-gen 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.
