Top Ten Pirates of the Caribbean Characters


The Top Ten

1 Captain Jack Sparrow 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.

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

One of the funniest and best characters ever put to screen. Captain Jack Sparrow is simply one of the best.

He is so funny he is the best. He is number one then will then elizabeth. No one can ever beat captain jack!

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!

By far best character. Best journey for a character and best lines. Even in the fourth movie, the story with his leg, he is too cool.

3 Will Turner 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

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

Legit, he is obviously the hottest character in the entire movie set. And most skilled. DUH.

4 Davy Jones 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.

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.

Badass is the only

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

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

7 Elizabeth Swann Elizabeth Swann

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

She's the best ever. Ever, ever, ever.

He is a character who you feel bad for.

When he died I almost was crying

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

I loved his treadmill fight scene with Will and Jack

11 Ragetti

Love how he always struggles with his eye lol!

14 Marty

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

15 Twigg
16 Tia Dalma
17 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.

18 Captain Salazar

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

He Looks So Cool - JPK

19 John Brown John Brown

No just no :|

20 Cotton

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