Top Ten Pirates of the Caribbean Characters

The Top Ten

1 Captain Jack Sparrow Captain Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp, is a fictional character and the main protagonist in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. He is a pirate in the film series.

Well obviously. Is the coolest and funniest character ever. His best part was I got a Jar of Dirt!

he is why I watched this movie I was a really big johnny depp fan back then.

Captain Jack Sparrow is the most awesome man character in The Pirates of the Caribbean. I love him.

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.

2 Hector Barbossa

He represents every traits a pirate should have! He was technically the pirate king dominating any ships on his way after the fourth series "On Stranger Tides"

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.

Great character, very important for the whole series! Impressive sword fighting and tough piratical behaviour. I also love the rivalry between him and Jack when it comes to the Black Pearl.

3 Davy Jones Davy Jones is a fictional villain character in the Pirates of the Caribbean feature film series, who first appears in the second film, Dead Man's Chest and returns in the series' third installment, At World's End.

My Heart and Soul (ha ha) go out to a tragic villain; Davy Jones. He seems cruel and heartless on the outside but, as my grandma always said, " Even though they say a man's actions speak louder than their words, sometimes a man's expressions speak louder than their actions." I believe it. Especially for Davy Jones. Also, Bill Nighy, the actor who played Davy Jones, is awesome! I LOVE YOU BILL! Also I love a joke he made about his character, "I don't understand any of it, but I'm currently the world's second best holder for playing the pipe organ with an imaginary octopus beard." #JonesAin'tDead

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

Love Jones! He tries to be bad and intimidating, which just makes him funnier! I don't know if we can really call him a true "villain" as all he does is commandeer a ghost ship and gets screwed by Beckett, the true villain.

I don't agree with this. Davy Jones technically IS a true villain. While he did get controlled by Beckett, in the end, he still managed to kill him and became the final true villain once again. He also does more than just command a ghost ship. He collects the souls of anyone who witnesses his ship where they are forced to forget who they are and become more grotesque as time goes one. He also rarely ever has comedic moments. He even has a pet Kraken which eats pirates.

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

4 Will Turner William "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

I love will, he is brave and gorgeous. He should be in second place. Will is my second favourite character.

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

5 Joshamee Gibbs

Gibbs is the best!

Gibbs is the truest, most good-natured and kind-hearted of the pirates. His mix of folksy advice, superstition and overall loyalty give balance to the series. If Jack is an "utter rascal", Gibbs is the utter rascal's dad.

Gibbs is the one that guides you throw pirates of the Caribbean

He is just so loyal to sparrow!

6 Elizabeth Swann Elizabeth Swann, played by Kiera Knightley, is the female protagonist of the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Elizabeth is an awesome kick butt women and she is so inspiring. I love her!

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

7 James Norrington

Now that's what I call character development. He is to me the most real character in Pirates of the Caribbean and is incredibly well portrayed. My favourite by far!

He's a very well developed character and his death was so darn sad! I feel bad for him. My number 1 favorite character!

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

He is a character who you feel bad for.

8 Bootstrap Bill Turner

Most awkward disgusting character, especially in the third film. I don’t like him

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

He's a heartbreaking character, beautifully crafted and acted.

Why is he before Davy Jones

9 Cutler Beckett

He has good hair

I love

10 Ragetti

He's the most important 2nd character. He's been there since the beginning. Keeping one of the 9 pieces of 8. He's been key into solving the issues/conflict of the movies

He is absolutely hilarious! One of my favorite characters

Love how he always struggles with his eye lol!

Pintel and Ragetti are like the Ant & Dec of the Pirates series.

The Contenders

11 Captain Teague

Played by Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones

Keith Richards... 'enough said.

He is awesome

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

12 Tia Dalma
13 Angelica

Ok glad she's here, I was worried she wouldn't show at all. Jackelica fanfic a are the best, and their romance scenes in the movie are a bit unerring considering its jack, but still pretty ok.

14 Pintel


15 Captain Salazar

Okay I literally have a crush on this guy here.

He is so hilarious!

He looks awesome

He is chilling. every time he came on screen I had goosebumps

16 Henry Turner

Henry is the son of William Turner so he naturally has to be amazing!

17 Jack the Monkey

I love him, he is adorable

We named the monkey Jaack!

"Who can forget the awesome monkey jack I mean he sets of bombs and stuff, played by the magnificent "monkey" himself 😄"

18 Theodore 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

My Favorite Character, 2 quotes admiring Jacks Great Escapes, I'm glad he had a bigger role in Stranger Tides than other movies. Thou wish they didn't kill him off, maybe they could have had him join Barbossas Pirate Crew? Loved him in At Worlds End though.

19 Syrena
20 Blackbeard Edward Teach or Edward Thatch, better known as Blackbeard, was an English pirate who operated around the West Indies and the eastern coast of Britain's North American colonies.

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

Come on! He's ' Edward Teach!

He Was A Decent Villain

That pirate is...awesome

21 Cotton

He's got a parrot he was like the best third character in the first three films

He taught a parrot to speak for him after losing his ability to speak. Need I say more?

22 Marty

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

23 Sao Feng
24 Armando Salazar
25 Prison Dog
