  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Roger's spirit was sealed in a treasure chest after his crew killed him.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Sins of the Father: Roger's victim pool is the descendants of his crew, who killed him in mutiny. A much more justified version, as Roger is a monstrous bastard who doesn’t care that his intended victims are long dead.
  • The Sociopath: "Jolly" Roger Lafarge, a pirate who was killed by his own crew for slaughtering a galleon full of priests and nuns. When he returns from the grave, he kills his crew's descendants so he can get his gold back.
