* Subverted by Captain Boone of ''ComicBook/DeCapeEtDeCrocs'', who has a shoulder chicken (that he insists never talks because it's lost its voice), leading to some awkwardness when he and his crew see some actual parrots and he doesn't know what they are. Later he gets a parrot-shaped mechanical bird that can repeat messages... which are known as chickens (a very old-fashioned term for a love letter, and later any letter, which the clockwork birds have replaced) by the locals.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' serial [[Recap/DoctorWhoS16E2ThePiratePlanet "The Pirate Planet"]] (written by Douglas Adams), the space pirate captain has robot parrot with a blaster in its beak (the Polyphase Aviatron). It is destroyed off-screen by K9 (who then returns with the bird in its "mouth". Good dog!) According to Douglas Adams, he submitted that script to the ''Doctor Who'' production office, and it was rejected. He later wrote in the robot parrot and re-submitted it, and it was accepted.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' AnimatedAdaptation serial [[Recap/DoctorWho2007TDWASTheInfiniteQuest "The Infinite Quest"]] features Baltazhar, who supposedly is some kind of a intergalactic overlord, terror of the spaceways, but is dressed in a red and white stripey shirt, with a futuristic HookHand. He's got two Pirate Parrots, but both of them the size of a ''car''. Needless to say they don't actually sit on his shoulder.

* Although the Free Traders of Creator/AndreNorton's ''Solar Queen'' series are not pirates -- more of unorthodox merchants, still their captain owns a small alien animal which looks like half-parrot-half-toad. That in addition to more conventional ship-cat.

* ''Series/WorldsDumbest'' shows that this isn't limited to pirates--one clip features parrots employed by drug cartels to warn them when the police show up. As Wes Denning puts it, "Parrots need to stop hanging out with such shady characters."

* Iago from Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' is worth mentioning, even though he's not affiliated with a Pirate... [[spoiler:Then in ''Aladdin and the King of Thieves'' he goes off with Cassim, Aladdin's long-lost father and former leader of a band of thieves who would occasionally use ships.]]
