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

I love his humorous lines and how he always gets into sticky situations. Also the slaps that he gets off of women are utterly hilarious. "Not sure I deserved that"

Of course he is number one
The funniest and most charismatic pirate of all time
But why is the rum gone?

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

He certainly is the best kisser in the Caribbean! And lover, as that time on the deserted island attests. Look at the results, some ten years later.

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

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.

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

He might be making a comeback (Dead Man Tells No Tales post credit scene)! Best villain ever.

6 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

My favorite character besides Jack himself, but Jack doesn't count, he's everyone's favorite character.

7 Bootstrap Bill Turner Bootstrap Bill Turner

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

8 James Norrington

When he died I almost was crying

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

He is a character who you feel bad for.

Best character for interesting reasons

14 Marty

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

15 Tia Dalma
16 Twigg
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?

21 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.

22 Blackbeard Blackbeard

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

Come on! He's ' Edward Teach!

He Was A Decent Villain - JPK

That pirate is...awesome

23 Jack the Monkey

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

24 Sao Feng
25 Prison Dog

26 Armando Salazar Armando Salazar
27 Koleniko

Yes mate

28 Henry Turner

The guy who lost his head and turned into a hermit crab, by far the sexiest in the movies

32 Gillette
33 Scrum
34 Hammer Shark
35 Kraken Kraken The Kraken is a legendary sea monster of giant size that is said to dwell off the coasts of Norway and Greenland.
