Added DiffLines:

**subverted, because the cursed pirates' true forms are revealed under the full moon, or first moon. As such, the title fits with the movie.

* AdaptationalHeroism: The pirates. Real pirates were (and still are) murderers, rapists, thieves, and sadists who wanted to take their life of crime to the lawlessness of the sea where they were harder to pursue. In the franchise, Pirates tend to be some sort of freedom fighters.

In the franchise, Pirates tend to be some sort of freedom fighters. This seems to be more defined by the villains they face, as numerous pirates were portrayed negatively over the course of the series.

* The film ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'' puts its central character's claim right in the title.

''Pirates of the Caribbean'' is a Disney film franchise based on a [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks theme park ride]] [[Ride/PiratesOfTheCaribbean of the same name]], centering around the adventures of pirate Captain Jack Sparrow on his quest for immortality and rum. The series is famous for originally [[ItWillNeverCatchOn being thought a terrible idea]], only to surprise everyone with its huge success, partly due to Creator/JohnnyDepp and his wild-eyed acting.

'''Beckett:''' It's just.. good business.
** Less so with [[spoiler: Blackbeard]] in the fourth film [[spoiler: thanks mainly to his KarmicDeath]], but there is the sad music playing and him trying to reach the one person who cares about him as he withers away...
** Completely averted with [[spoiler: Salazar]] in the fifth film, as it's [[spoiler: Barbossa's death at the same time that is treated as sad.]]

* TheCatCameBack / ClingyMacguffin: Norrington's sword returns to its rightful owner. [[spoiler: Doesn't do him much good in the long run, though...]]



** Elizabeth, who goes from [[http://www.costumersguide.com/pirates_gold/ref1.jpg this]] to [[http://www.costumersguide.com/potc3/hires19.jpg this]]. From noble woman to [[spoiler: pirate king]] in only a few short years!
** Will goes from a blacksmith to [[spoiler: full-on pirate]] and eventually [[spoiler: captain of the ''Flying Dutchman'']].

** Subverted -- when Elizabeth attempts to defend herself with one of the swords displayed above the mantle, she finds it is permanently attached to its decorative shield. Played straight with Elizabeth's bedwarmer; she uses it to dump hot coals on the pirates invading her room. Also Jack Sparrow's confiscated effects, including his one-shot pistol and curious compass, all serving a vital purpose. The compass gains even more importance in the second film. Used again in the second movie in Tia Dalma's shack (the locket and the boots). In the third movie, [[spoiler: Raghetti's wooden eye]] turns out to be Barbossa's Piece Of Eight. Jack's own Piece of Eight is debatable, being present in the first two movies before the sequels were even written.

* ChekhovsSkill: Elizabeth's childhood obsession with pirates comes in handy a few times. In ''The Curse of the Black Pearl'', her knowledge of the Pirate Code [[spoiler: allows her to negotiate a Parley with Barbossa]] and her knowledge of piracy and sailing in general inspires her last-second stunt while the ''Interceptor'' is being pursued by the ''Pearl''. In ''At World's End'' she [[spoiler: becomes a Pirate Lord, and then Pirate King]]. She also [[spoiler: inspires the troops with a speech about the power of piracy]].

* DressedToPlunder: They put their own spin on the costumes, but it still hits the major notes: parrot, beards, eyepatches, hats, bandanas, everything short of a hook. [[spoiler: Barbossa even gets a peg leg in the fourth movie]].

** Jack claimed to escape the island Barbossa marooned him on by creating a raft made of sea turtles. [[spoiler: He actually bartered his way onto a smuggler's vessel when they landed to pick up their rum cache.]]
** When Will arives on the island where Davy Jones stashed his heart and Jack asked how he got there, he replied, "Sea Turtles! I strapped a pair of them to my feet!" [[spoiler: He was hiding on the Flying Dutchman.]]

* HonorBeforeReason: At first, just Will is doing stupidly honest and honorable things ([[BewareTheHonestOnes although this does make him unpredictable to selfish pirates]]) and to a lesser extent Norrington with his MercyLead for a WorthyOpponent. Later on, even Jack fits this trope [[spoiler: by allowing Will to become Davy Jones' successor in order to save Will's life]]. In Jack's case, though, it's hard to tell where (and whether) he's using reason in the first place.

* LeaveBehindAPistol: Barbossa inflicts this on Jack twice, only for him to escape both times. Flipped around in the fourth movie when ''Jack'' leaves [[spoiler: Angelica]] on an island, although he leaves them an easier way out.

* 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.
