Added DiffLines:

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* HandicappedBadass: Blind Pew's capable of taking out an entire tavern full of unsavory types, once he's had the shutters closed and the lights doused.


Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: To Literature/TreasureIsland. The good-hearted young man whose mother runs a tavern taking a noble and a doctor to search for buried treasure on a ship that undergoes a mutiny from the former crewmen of the pirate captain who buried the aforesaid treasure ''might'' be a coincidence, if not for the presence of HandicappedBadass Blind Pew.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperSenses: Blind Pew's "acute 'earing" lets him tell what kind of clothes a man was wearing.

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

Added DiffLines:

* SexGod: Even if it is rape, Yellowbeard is almost certainly this when you consider ''none'' of the various women he rapes get mad at him for it. Plus if the sounds they make are any indication, they ''really'' seem to enjoy it. Indeed, Betty enjoyed the first time he raped her so much that when Yellowbeard came into her room to get his treasure map, she was disappointed when he says he doesn't have time for ''that'' now.

* AllStarCast: Graham Chapman in the title role, and a colorful lineup of comic and character actors supporting him: in alphabetical order, Peter Boyle, Cheech & Chong, John Cleese, Peter Cook, Marty Feldman, Michael Hordern, Eric Idle, Madeline Kahn, Kenneth Mars, James Mason, Spike Milligan, Beryl Reid, and Susannah York. ''And'' an unbilled cameo by [[spoiler: David Bowie]]! It definitely qualifies.
** Sting was at one point tied to be the lead character but he was rejected by Hollywood executives backing the film on the grounds that he would have made the film "too British." Yes, someone out there thought that a film about the Golden Age of Piracy, with a 90% British cast, could be ''too British.''
