Added DiffLines:
* DivineDate: Davy Jones's backstory involves him falling in love with the sea goddess Calypso when he was still a mortal man. She gave him the job of [[{{Psychopomp}} ferrying the souls of those who died at sea to the afterlife]] with the promise of seeing her once every 10 years, but since Calypso is as treacherous as the sea itself, she failed to show up. This prompted Jones to go rogue and caused his mutation into a [[{{Cthulhumanoid}} squid-man]].

Added DiffLines:
* PirateKing: Who actually rules over all the pirates on all the seas in the world. The position itself is chosen by vote (and being pirates, all of them [[ItsAllAboutMe vote for themselves...]]), and [[spoiler: Elizabeth Swann]] was voted by Sparrow and [[spoiler:her]]self, breaking the tie and becoming the Pirate King in the third movie. * The film ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'' puts its central character's claim right in the title.

*** Should at least be averted with the ''Dauntless'' in the first film, as most of those killed appear to be marines, who wouldn't actually be involved in sailing the ship (in most circumstances they would defend the ship and provide small arms fire in a fight, and subdue any mutiny.)

-->'''Gibbs:''' Can't, sir. Poor devil had his tongue cut out. So he's trained the parrot [[VoiceForTheVoiceless to talk for him]]. No one's yet figured ''how''.

* %%* HooksAndCrooks * HostageMacGuffin: ** When Elizabeth Swann is chased after in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'', she thinks it's because she's the governor's daughter... but it turns out the men were just being 'called' by a magical amulet she was wearing. She tries to avert this trope by claiming to be her own maid (she was in her undistinguished nightclothes, and the place is full of maids), using the family name of her crush -- this leads them to take her for Bill Turner's child, [[spoiler:the person they were looking for]]. ** In the sequels, she comes into her own and is no longer fought over... until being MacGuffinSuperPerson mistaken for a god]] in ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd At World's End]]'', when a [[GambitPileup bargaining session]] is held on who gets to kidnap her. She manages to negotiate her way into being declared [[SheIsTheKing Pirate King as a result]]. %%* HumanityEnsues

Natter and irrelevant information.
* ScoundrelCode: The Pirates' Code (Or [[AltumVidetur Pirata Codex]]) is a patently silly version, since freedom from authority is one of the main reasons for being a pirate in the first place. This is probably why they are rarely hesitant to stray from it, so long as Captain Teague isn't in the room. ** "The code's more like guidelines, than actual rules." ** The idea of a Pirate Code isn't ''entirely'' silly, as every pirate ship did have rules- the 'ship's articles', and strict ones at that ('Black Bart' Roberts' rules included a strict 10pm bedtime for anyone who was not on watch), just in order to function (you can't sail a tallship if you're not organised). These were, however, written specifically for each individual ship (sometimes extending to the crew's behaviour ashore), not to the whole trade. *** The most important part of the Articles was the table spelling out what percentage of the treasure each pirate received. This often also included a "worker's comp" system specifying a certain amount of gold for a lost hand, leg, eye, etc.

Not a trope.

* [[DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster Damn It Feels Good To Be A Pirate]]: The pirate lifestyle in general is depicted to be a romanticized BadAss madcap [[{{Swashbuckler}} swash-buckling]] life of adventure where you get to [[BadAssLongcoat wear awesome clothes]], bed a different salty wench in every port, go through fortunes of doubloons like water, [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu outwit mythical beings]], stick it to the man, and most of all ''have the freedom to determine your life's course.''

* SequelEscalation: The second and particularly the third movie featured more and more insanely over-the-top CGI and action sequences, epic plotlines and 300-million budgets. The fourth movie, however, was intentionally scaled back, returning to the more modest and character-driven style of the first film.

YMMV trope.
** Jack has a conspicuous new scar in OST; [[XMarksTheHero a small red X on his right cheekbone.]] Such a distinct shape suggests a deliberate infliction, but no explanation is given for it.
