* BadBadActing: When El Nebuloso's fort is attacked by the pirates, he orders his forces to pretend to be defeated to lure the pirate leader to him. They accomplish this by collapsing as if shot whenever someone fires, regardless of whether the gun was pointed anywhere near them.

(Unfortunately for some soldiers, Yellowbeard doesn't give them ''time'' to play dead.)

* HiddenDepths: Lord Lambourn might TheStoner and bit of TheAlcoholic, but he's been a fine ParentalSubstitute for Dan.

* PinkElephants: Not really, but Lord Lambourn is such an alcoholic that he is willing to dismiss the strange things he happens to see as alcohol-induced hallucinations.

* RefrainFromAssuming: Just because Creator/GrahamChapman, Creator/JohnCleese and Creator/EricIdle act together in this movie doesn't make it a Creator/MontyPython film.

* PapaWolf: Yellowbeard, as much as he dislikes Dan for not being a black-hearted pirate like him, he always comes to his son's aid when he needs him the most. Indeed, trying to kill Dan usually ends death at Yellowbeard's hands, just ask Mr. Crisp and El Nebuloso.

to:

* ParentalSubstitute: Lord Lambourn helped Betty raise Dan, and given what a good-hearted person Dan is along with with Dan's own words, Lambourn was quite a good parental figure for him.

** Lord Lambourn is another example when he delivered some sweet karma to a bratty beggar girl who threw crap in Dan's face.
