Added DiffLines:

* BadassGrandpa: Red is pushing 60, but he still deadly with his cutlass.


Added DiffLines:

* OffScreenMomentOfAwesome: The wreck and battle on Red's ship, The Black Princess. Overrun by Spanish Pirate Hunters, Red and The Frog somehow survived this onslaught and escaped, killing plenty of the attackers in the process. We only hear a few details of this event from other characters: The Spaniards, the pirates, and even Red himself.

Added DiffLines:

* AnachronismStew: Captain Red and Diddler are singing "We'll Go No More A-Roving" on the pirate island... about 100 years before the song was written.


Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: Or rather, all about gold. Red kills dozens of Spaniards, gets jailed, loses half his pirates and abandons the other half to die, and goes through all kinds of hell just to get that Aztec Throne. In the end, he gets it, and its all he has left... but he's OK with that.
* JerkAss: Don Alfonso de la Torré is a nasty piece of work. Not only is he cruel to his crew, condescending to Maria, contemptuous of anyone not Spanish (and some who are), it's implied it was he who poisoned The Neptune's captain to get command.
* KickTheDog: Even though he plans to execute them anyway, Don Alfonso makes Red and The Frog eat a dead rat at the officer's table purely out of spite.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: The python. (The movie's pyrotechnic effects, on the other hand, are quite good.)

The pirate [[TheCaptain captain]] [[AwesomeMcCoolName Thomas Bartholomew Red]] is stranded aboard a raft at sea with Jean-Baptiste, his first mate ([[AffectionateNickname "Frog"]]). After Red, cracking under the starvation, tries to kill and eat Frog, the duo is picked up by a Spanish galleon and are forced into slavery before instigating a mutiny with the other prisoners and taking control of the vessel. Frog falls in love with María-Dolores de la Jenya de la Calde, the niece of the governor of a Spanish colony. Red covets the golden throne that the Spanish have taken from an Aztec king.
