Top Ten Pirates of the Caribbean Characters


The Top TenXW

1Captain Jack SparrowCaptain Jack Sparrow is a fictional character and the main protagonist in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series.

Best character, no argument in that. Best character for me anyway... He's H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S. Every single line he says, every single step he takes, he manages to (at LEAST) make me giggle. Wobbly walking style, undying love for rum, deadly breath, arrogance, absolute brilliance in sword fighting, cowardice, coming up ridiculous, pathetic yet intelligent ideas... Need I say more? He could be the worst pirate anyone has ever heard of, but at least, people have HEARD of him. - UnheardMelody

Imagine that jack was scrolling the internet and he saw his name was first on this list marked as JACK SPARROW and instead of being happy, he frowns and says "that's CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow! " he's awesome

"GET HIM OF THE SHIP! "is his famous quote

You knew he was gonna' be on top, right?

2Will TurnerWilliam "Will" Turner is a fictional character and main protagonist in the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films.

The Best character in POTC series! The reason why I became a fan of POTC and the reason why I never be a fan of On Stranger Tides movie since he is not in it. No Will Turner = No Pirates Of The Caribbean. Will Turner is a really great and deep character created by the great actor Orlando Bloom. Thank you, Orlando!

I have met so many people that hate Will with a passion, and I don't think it is fair. Sure they have their reasons, but Will was the reason the movies began (not Sparrow, strangely enough.) Bottom line: No Will, no movie. Or at least a seriously depressing one where everyone dies and pirates take over the world. Bonus Point: Orlando Bloom. 'enough said

He is such a good character I think Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom are best as a group

I honestly don't like him that much. Just makes me uncomfortable, and takes away from the hilarity and awesomeness of the film with his mushy love drama. But hey, that's just me.

Not only is he good at sword fight, he is also old! That's
Very impressing

He was a real pirate when you compare him to jack.

I am loving jack sparrow more but on the second place there should be hector
For the pearl!

I like him but his hat isn't what a pirate would wear

Guys, you have to vote for him,
I mean, he IS the captain of the flying Dutchman, a great captain and he looks epic in the face

Sure, he's kind of the "bad" guy of the film, but it isn't quite his fault he ended up that way and he really makes me laugh the most out of the other characters.

He is the best villain in all the movies, with best background story, heartbreaking love and best accent.

This thing is why I have nightmares of octopus which why I vote for him well done for the make up scary.

I don't like him. He just made me uncomfortable, especially in the third film.

When he died I almost was crying

Brilliant classic 'British' Officer with torn loyalties. Very well portrayed.


Love how he always struggles with his eye lol!

Wait a minute... The mermaid got higher than the princess turned pirate? Yea.. No!

She's not even in the top ten? She's like the third main character in the first 3 films! Sure I don't like her that much but really?

She's so hot. There were like four dudes that wanna go for her

I remember when I saw her naked

The Contenders

11Captain Teague

Played by Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones

Surely1 of the most feared
Great fighter (obvio) keeper of the code and probably one of the only 2 pirates jack fears

Marty was very loyal to his captain Jack Sparrow. And as small as he is, he's not afraid of confronations.

15Theodore Groves

Loved him.. He always admired Jack Sparrow although he was part of the British... And the way they killed him off was probably one of the worst ever.. Gonna miss him in the 5th movie

They should have expanded his character instead of killing him in the 4th movie.. He could have played a more majoer part in the next films but that's not gonna happen I guess

18Tia Dalma
19John Brown

Man, he sucks as much as the fourth film...
