Many villainous {{pirate}}s have {{Hook Hand}}s and {{Seadog Peg Leg}}s, though this may simply be to reinforce their badassery, a case of HandicappedBadass rather than Evil Cripple as these things are rarely shown to handicap them much. These [[DressedToPlunder attributes]] seem to be cases of FollowTheLeader; the peg leg originated with Long John Silver of ''Literature/TreasureIsland'' and the HookHand with Captain Hook of ''Literature/PeterPan'', and later writers just based their pirates on these guys.
